S got her period last night, so it's a BFN.  Bummer, we really thought that this month was the one.  We have an appointment with our doctor on Thursday to see where we should go from here.  I'm guessing he will want to do the test where they make sure there arnt any blockages in the floapian tubes at the very least.  We want to discus if we should change donors or do anything else differently.  I think we are open to discussing fertility meds but not sure we are totally ready to do them.  We really don't want multiples.  It's hard to know what to do when everything seems to be totally fine.  Good sperm count, good lining, good egg, good timing, good everything.  So keep trying as is with the third times the charm mentality or move to more medical interventions?  Such a hard call.  Hopefully doc will have some insight because I'm really on the fence.  

S and I were talking last night about the BFN and how to add injury to insult, you not only find our you arn't pregnant but you also get your stupid period.  It would be so much better if someone came by with fresh cookies and a sorry not this month sign instead.  Ha!


  1. :(
    Sorry you didn't get your BFP this month.
    I don't know if this is any help at all, but we had screening prior to trying to ensure there were no obvious medical reason we would not be getting pregnant and then said we would do 6 attempts with no (major) medications.

  2. Hey, I am feeling with you but honestly: Two tries is nothing. I know, that in TTC world it seems a lot but it's totally normal that it takes up to 8 tries without any medical conditions. I know it's not what you wanna hear. It has already worked out once and so it will a second time. :-) My fingers are crossed!!

  3. So sorry this one didn't work. Our plan with our doc both times was to try 4 times and then talk about fertility meds. With our first, it took two tries, and three with our second. If it was me, I'd go for at least one more try unmedicated, especially if you aren't sure you want to go that route unless you really need to.

  4. I'm so sorry :(
    We were told that fertility really increases in the 3 months post the HSG test (see if any blockages) as the dye used essentially clears out the system and increases fertile mucus and less barriers for eggs and sperm to combat. So for sure schedule an attempt or 2 follow that. Good luck!!!!
