So sorry AF found you Babymonster.

Well, my temps dropped today so I haven't ovulated yet. Maybe today or tomorrow, I hope.
post #45 of 425
sorry babymonster and MrsTC.

i am in need of some support also i am TRYING to remain calm but my temps went down again today and so FF took away my O date and crosshairs and told me my chart pattern does not have enough data to confirm and ovulation pattern : i guess i am concerned with my age that perhaps my progesterone is slacking off or something. my temps were fine and dandy a few months ago! last two cycles i have started spotting before AF. this past cycles was three days before and i had cramping. i am pretty sure i O'd, i just think that my temp isn't staying up for some reason. another thing that has me worried is that my mother went through menopause WAY early..... and she has said to me on more than one occasion, "maybe you can't carry a pregnancy" which is really bugging me only b/c she does seem to have some kind of intuition at times. i don't know, on a positive note i just started seeing an acupuncturist who specializes in fertility. i am seeing her once a week and will go in tomorrow for my appointment. i am gonna bring my chart and show her what is happening. atleast i am charting to get a handle on this early. this is such a bummer! i mean something is obviously going on with my body, i doubt i can sustain a pregnancy like this ya know? hopefully it's easy to remedy .....: but i feel like screaming.

update: well, ff gave me the coverline and o date back....which silly enough, makes me feel better.....however, my temps are erratic and i'd still appreciate feedback.

octobermoon - my temps were like that this past cycle. They kept dropping below the coverline, and eventually FF gave me a lower coverline. I suspect it is a progesterone issue for me because I am still nursing. How long is your LP? I would think it would be pretty short if you do have low progesterone. Have you considered B vitamins? Good luck to ya! Plenty of ladies have got a BFP with low temps like those (search on FF for low post-O temps)

I'm sorry, babymonster and MrsTC!

Good for those of you staying strong during the TWW.

Well, it's close to ovulation time for me. It's kind of hard to tell how close, though. Could be tomorrow or five days from now. Fellow ovulators of MDC, unite in fertility!

i wish i could see your chart. how long is your LP? is there anything you can do about suspected issue or is that normal for BF? my LP is about 15 days which is good, but i was spotting the past two cycles atleast that i noted. my last cycle i spotted, three days before so i guess *maybe* then i am still OK with 12 days if i include the spotting?? i don't know! i'm trying not to worry.

I’m going to join you ladies! My test date will be December 13th. I was a crazy POAS addict while TTC DS and I don’t want to go there again. This is my first month TTC and I want to stay calm for the holiday. I find that once I start testing, it's all downhill and I will test 2 times a day until AF shows or a BFP. And the constant BFN are so depressing.

Now I just have to stay strong I WOH and my job is really slow so I just hang out on MDC which probably isn't good for TTC

Hey everyone, hugs to those who are out
Octobermoon - hugs to you too, although I don't have any knowledge on progesterone type of stuff. Are you taking your temp orally? I only temped one month because it drove me nuts. I would think there could be a lot of variations this time of year when it's getting cold at night, then we're turning up the heat, etc. I know mine varies a lot. If I woke up with the blankets off and freezing, my temp would be super low. If I woke up huddled under 3 blankets and sweating, it would be almost feverish. Anyways, rambling. Just wanted to offer my support

Okay I have some ideas for those of you who need something to do to distract you and these projects anyone can do...
Make a candy tree!
Or enchanting ice vases? - a little more involved but totally do-able.

Alright I'm 3dpo and totally calm, next week will be a different story. I finally drank enough water this time around and it made a huge difference in my cervical mucous, so I'm feeling really good about this cycle.

Stay strong everyone!
post #52 of 425
Hi all! I'm 9dpo today, and I'm committing to not testing until 16dpo, Dec 9. (I'd test on my usual 15dpo, but the 8th would have been my due date if I hadn't lost my first pg; I couldn't bear to get a BFN that day. )

I'm supposed to be writing my dissertation proposal this week...I'm trying not to let my pg hopes distract me.

Good luck everyone!:

I think it is quite telling that I just read that as "urinate in fertility"

octobermoon - here is my wacky chart (I started it before I got AF, that is why it is so long) - http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/158913
I used to have a 12 day LP, this time was 10 days with spotting from 8DPO. That is very common for BFing, but lots of ladies use Vit B6 to help with the progesterone. A 12 day LP should be fine!

Court - I am LOL at the candy tree There is no way that would be sitting in my house without me eating it and getting bits of florist's foam stuck in my throat.

Ok ladies, I need OPK help!!! What is going on?? Do you think I ovulated and just it's taking a while to see a temp shift? Would you consider any of those OPK positive?? I just don't know why it would get dark and then light again. Last month my OPKs were VERY positive. Could I have surged in between and missed the really dark time? Confused!

It was definitely positive on 11/30 and 12/1. I've read that it can sometimes take 3 days for temp. to shift. Have you been sick or super stressed out? What's your cervical mucous doing?

I still have somewhat eggy cm, but it's starting to kinda do that globbiness that it did after O last time. But my cervix is still medium open, medium soft. I didn't really check it too much the past few days. I think I remember it being high soft and open one of those nights a few days ago. I have been kinda stressed but no more than the past few months (we are financially in a rough place, in between jobs and selling our house). But I had a holiday so I wasn't stressed at all then. I guess I just hope that if I did ovulate it was after the first as to give me some BD time in there...
post #58 of 425
it does look like you got a + on 11/30. my temps are kinda low too so i feel ya on this one. if your cm is is sticky your probably not fertile. are you somewhere cold? maybe try to stay warmer, eat hot foods and not cold......sounds elementary and all but this is what my acupuncturist told me to try to get my temps up. HTH.

You can ABSOLUTELY wait until Friday. That way you don't have to wonder- is it a false neg? Is it a false Pos? It will give you enough time to get a more accurate reading. You CAN do it!

Oh my goodness! I admit that I got a little pee-crazy with the OPKs and broke my own no POAS thread promise the month I actually conceived, but I can't imagine testing twice a day! I don't have that much money, and I refused to buy a 50 pack from the internet cheapies. In fact, I so loud when I read some ladies do that- I just couldn't bear to order that many, even though they are cheaper.

Candid, step away from the PeeSticks. Use the force. Ahhh- just joking with you. Try to stay strong, but if you fall off the wagon, we'll scooch over and give you a hand back up.


Best of luck to you all!

I'm still holding strong with not testing... I hope my temp is still up tomorrow morning. I hope to dream of BFPs tonight.

Congrats on being 13 weeks musiclady... I hope to be in your position sometime soon.
