Trying to conceive

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, apart from my melancholy update from the office last week. I've been absolutely fine, work has just been crazy busy and when I get home it's too late to join in. Keep meaning to start the daily threads but have been waking up at about 3am every morning and not falling back asleep until 5/6am (if I do fall back!) so been having to rush around before work.
Little update: no BFP for me, but we went to the docs today. I was concerned that my ovulation date is getting late (not getting +opks now until CD15 with a 27 day cycle) so I mentioned this to him, plus my concerns that I might have hormonal imbalances etc. due to spotting mid cycle. The doctor was very calm and has made me a referral for some tests; as my last smear came up unsuitable they are going to do that first and then get even more invasive. My husband has also been referred for an SA so the results for that will come in before I start my fertility tests.
I feel positive. I thought he might send us away and tell us to come back in two months, when it would have been a year, so I really accept how lucky we are in that we've had the referral. Hubby's test is free and the doc said mine may be free or there may be a small payment (I guess because it hasn't been a calendar year yet) so we'll see what happens there. When we walked out the surgery it felt like something had been lifted as I do feel more relaxed about things. I'm due on on Wednesday and can feel that she's on her way, and I've hardly symptom spotted this cycle. So I guess we'll see what happens.
Again, I feel very lucky - I know that some people aren't dealt with until two years in some areas so I really am counting my lucky stars at the moment.
Will join the Tuesday thread tomorrow :-)

Good to see you Enjayee, and it's really nice to see you positive. I have my fingers crossed the tests go ok for you x

You know what ... I almost want there to be something there that can be fixed, does that make sense? If we come back perfectly normal then it's a massive unanswered question. My +opks used to be on CD11 and now are on CD15, is that stress? Goodness knows. But my doctor was very relaxed and said "well that is something we can easily treat with hormones if we do confirm that there is a problem with the luteal phase" so I felt like he knew his sh1t!
Thanks both for well wishes xx

Good to hear from you Enjayee! That is great your doctor was so good and at least you can have the tests done now so you know where you are. I know what you mean about almost wanting there to be something wrong, as long as it is something easily fixed it could be better than being unexplained. Keep us updated on how you get on xx

Enjayee - this all sounds good. Can I just add that if they talk about fees etc push that you are concerned about your cycle, as much as about fertility. Then they are not just treating fertility, for which they would generally wait a year, but dealing with a medical concern that you have about your cycle which they could investigate at any point under the NHS. I had many of the standard fertility tests done at 8-9 months because I have spotting in the luetal phase and the tests are the same. They would investigate that whether I was trying or not.
