My temps are unpredictable like that, I'd stick with the original plan.

Hi can I join?

I'm 27 and TTC #3!

We have been TTC for just a few weeks so far. My cycles are very irregular, so I don't know when to test.

I want a baby so bad I can taste it!
Wishing everyone babies in 2009! and Peace in the interim

Where are you at in your cycle: CD 8
Appointments: None
Symptoms if they apply: None, just waiting to ovulate!
Thoughts: I feel myself getting more and more frantic about having a baby the closer I get to 30. I am SO glad my husband is finally on board. Hopefully this will not be a long journey...I feel like I have already been waiting so long.
added Welcome and good luck!

I would go with your gut. Do you want to wait and see what what your body will do on its own, or are you ready for a fresh start?
I caved yesterday and called the RE to see if he would call in some provera for me. I talked to the nurse and she said they would, just need a blood test first to rule out pregnancy. Unfortunately the lab was closed for a long weekend, so I have to wait until Monday . Maybe AF will show up first and I won't have to worry about it. My logic on going with it now is that I am on cd57, so almost to where I would be if I just skipped one period. My ideal cycle is 31 days, so there would be some symmetry in getting AF on cd62 of this cycle.
BTW, how long does it usually take to get AF once you start provera?

Um, I took provera for 7 days and then they tell you that if you dont get AF within the next week to call them. I have taken Provera 3 times and I have gotten my period between 3-5 days after I stopped taking provera.

My cycles are very long so if I wait it out it could take sometime. My shortest cycle in the last year has been 45 days. BUT I am at CD30 now and no sign of Oing yet so its probably gonna be a long cycle. I really dont want to take more meds. . Uh! I am finally over all the side affects from the Clomid. But, if it results in a baby I guess. . . I want a baby so bad. Christmas was sooo stinking hard. So many babies and big bellies all around me. :
post #27 of 639
Shannon, I understand how sad and frustrating it is to TTC without actually Oing. It's like you have NO hope... trust me, I know it...

I think you should wait it out... do you think you are taking your temp correctly? It shows a lot of them as open dots, so maybe that is messing up your accurate temps and thus you are missing the O? It looks like you are getting EWCM and that is VERY indicative of O.... I would go with your gut...

Hi ladies, mind if I join you? Here's my info...
Name: Brin
Age: 28
TTTC #3
Where are you at in your cycle: I am 7DPO out of a normal 11 day LP
Appointments: yoga!
Symptoms if they apply: tender breasts (especially when I first get up, and at the end of the day), creamy CM, lots of feeling in my lower abdomen
Testing:Hmmm, I think I'm not going to test until AF is due on the 7th
Thoughts: Glad to be trying after trying to get DH on board for over a year. This is our first cycle TTC, but I've been charting since August. I have 2 sons, 8 and 5.

Wow Brin your chart looks great! Does it always go so high after O? And trust me, I know about getting DH on board, I'm been begging since July/Aug as well!
post #31 of 639
Yeah, I usually have a pretty significant jump when I O. This month was a bit confusing as I had a bit of a slow rise at first. But, I think we DTD at the right time even if I O'd a day later. My chart looks a bit different to me than the last few and I am trying not to read into it too much, but my temps have stayed more even and without any dips yet, which seems different. Also, what's the earliest implantation can occur? Anybody want to weigh in?

Monday Check in:
Name: lalalola
Date: I'm a little late and a little early, Jan 3/09
Where are you at in your cycle: CD 14
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply: none
Testing: no plans as I have ZERO HPT
Thoughts: Hhhmmm, I have lots of thoughts, lol. We were going to try clomid this cycle but I went to get my prescription and our doctor had written down the wrong name on the prescription form (WTF) and I didn't have time to deal with it as we were heading out on xmas holidays. I'm not too concerned, god did not want us on clomid this cycle. DH quit smoking on Jan 1 and has been excercising his butt off and taking his maca so I hope that helps. I'm going to start my OPK's today as I generally O on CD17 (and I got 2 boxes of OPK's half off on a closing out sale!!!). I plan on DTD every morning until atleast Wed and praying. I have the worst baby fever right now (and so does DH, late late on New Years Eve he started telling me about how watching his brother with our niece made him so jealous and mad that it hasn't happened for us yet).

Hope you all had a great holiday and best of luck to everyone!!!!!!!!
post #33 of 639
My Fertilitea and Pre-Seed came today! Just in time, too, 'cause I expect to O in the next 4 days. DH opened the package, and he kept saying, "$30? You paid $30 for this?" I just wish I would have ordered them sooner...I got pg in 2 months with Fertilitea and Pre-Seed last time around. Somehow I guess I just thought #2 would happen right away.

Tomorrow I'm going to lunch with a friend who's about 12 weeks pg. I don't want to go. I was hoping so much that she and I would be pg together, but so far no luck. I know she got pg as soon as she started trying, and I have to struggle to pretend I don't care.

Does anyone else lie about TTC? Whenever I am asked, "So, when is your next baby coming along," I say I have too much going on in my life, DS is just too active right now, etc. It's like I'd be embarrassed for anyone to know that I have been trying for 5 months unsuccessfully.

Oh well...guess if I want my un-pg state to changed, I'd better go brew some tea and break out the Pre-Seed!

I feel the same way, so ready and all these babies around. I don't think about it as much anymore (probably b/c I haven't ovulated in like 2 months) but the feeling till pops up here and there. I hope this will be the year we all graduate. It would be nice to have familiar "faces" in the ddc.

Sorry you didn't get to start the clomid when you wanted, hopefully you will get lucky and not need it anyway. I love that your DH has caught your baby fever, its cute. Its good that he is working on getting healthy too, sometimes it seems like we do all the work in ttc and the men just have to "show up". It sounds like you two are definately in this together.

Yay, I love getting packages! I hope the preseed and tea do the trick. When people ask when we are going to have kids I just say "not today". For some reason no one really pushes it after that, we just laugh.

I'm in the same situation. I had my IUD removed and a friend rushed to have hers removed a couple weeks later. I genuinely didn't want to get pg at that time, but I think she thought we were racing or something. She ended up pg a couple months later, then my sister, and they've both since had their babies so it just seems so lonely. I just have to pretend I don't care when I'm around them <sigh> I'm just happy DH finally saw how sad I was and changed his mind.

Yesterday was 10dpo and I had a tiny bit of pink cm. Also, my boobs have been sore all weekend and I am feeling bloated and just different. I started taking vitex this month and it caused me to ovulate 3 days sooner than I usually do, so I don't know if these symptoms might just be due to the vitex. *crossing my fingers*

Oh, I'm sorry. That must be really hard--especially with your sister. My only sis isn't married yet, but I bet I would be a basket case if I'd had to watch her be pg while I was TTC. Glad your DH is on board now, though!
