 I'm back on IG well at least the TWW thread for now. I'm sure there is no one left here still TTC from when i was here back in the day. This will be Baby #1 Month #25 - 2 failed clomid round, 6 rounds of hormone drugs, 3round of vitex. Finally my cycles are on track.

Is there anyone out there in the TWW? I'm 6DPO today.

Hi winter! Nice to meet you. I'm at 6 dpo too...I think. Between 6 and 8. Had a weird cycle this month. In trying really hard to hold off on testing. I don't know how far I'll make it. No symptoms at all yet though. Just some cramps but I seem to get those every month. Any symptoms for you yet? Best wishes! You've obviously been waiting a long time... You must be a very strong woman! I how this is your month!

 Hi Rachel :) How long have you been trying? 

Its not been easy ill give you that.Very strange this cycle, I had a little issue with dtd with dh the other night, It was somewhat ouchy :/ my CP was so low and open.. Even today its super low but closed. It could of been just irritated from dtd. Tiny little cramps going on, bloating and so dizzy when i stand up or go outside.. Very strange things going on. Perhaps i just need more water. 

Ill update my siggy and my FF on there :)

This is our third month... And it already seems like forever! It happened so easily before. First two were oops babies and third was first month. I never thought I would have to TRY to conceive! But hopefully this is the month. I'm pretty sure I had a chemical last month. I'm bloated too. And with all of my kids I had dizzy spells... This might just be your month!

Im not sure if your trying to sway, or just want to conceive. My journey was long and trialing!!  TTC for 22 months and I started researching soy isoflavnes.  Research said that 90% of women who took soy to conceive had a success rate on the first cycle. I was really reluctant to use soy, so I tried several other things first.  I started taking

Vitamin E
Baby asprin
B6
vitex
folic acid
Calcium
Magnesium

These were helping because my LP lengthened by a day, and my cycles were becoming more regular.  However, I still was not getting a positive.  So I decided to look at soy again, and went and bought a supplement that had a high ammount of soy isoflavnes in it since i couldn't find straight soy isoflavnes (ended up taking a menopause supplement).  I was also taking everything else that I was taking before (vit e, b6, vitex, etc..) except with the vitex, I changed from taking it the whole cycle to taking it when I took the soy.  I am ecstatic to say that I am part of the 90% success rate... first cycle and got my positive!

There is a specific way to take the soy, must be on certain days of the cycle.  I have a 35 day cycle, so I took mine closer to the end of my af day 5-9.  Take soy either CD1-5, 2-6, 3-7, 4-8, or 5-9.

I'd start off with 80mg the first cycle, and then maybe bump it up to 120mg the next (if there is a next cycle lol

 Hey girl - Thanks for the information i have used soy for two cycles. Before we found out my DH had issued that needed to be sorted out.. 

Im vitex at the moment this is my third cycle taking that. Its working great right now. 

We have been told by the doctor to wait in till september for dh to go for another SA test. 

Although i cant help but think this would be a wasted cycle. I know the chances are slim since dh was on medication for so long. 

Im planning to stick with the vitex in till at least Christmas and still nothing, Ill try the Soy for two or three cycles. 

Did you take Soy & vitex at the same time? 

Did you stop taking Vitex when you were in the TWW? 

Right now im still taking it everyday to make my cycles more regular.

I've looked into taking the soy too! I figure if it doesn't happen soon I might try it. Can't hurt right? And so many women get pregnant on it! But hopefully I won't have to worry about it. I hope this is my month!
