They gave you dotted crosshairs bc your watery CM is "fertile" cm and they are unsure whether you have od bc you are still getting that.

Thanks! That did it! It was a just a little more watery than usual but really creamy anyway. Thanks for the tip!

yep I kept my EWCM on the sunday after I supposedly Od because I was thinking my initial O date was wrong... but my temps still seem to match up so oh well. I can deal with dotted crosshairs

LOL! So true for me too! It's clear from our temps that we did O though.

I have a hard time deciding what kind of CM I have sometimes. Mine seems to change throughout the day but I thought I read on FF that you should chart your most fertile CM of the day. It was a tad more watery/sticky this morning but it is definitely creamy now anyway.

i wonder if my body knows dbf is coming home in 36 days? lol

CD30... I was cramping yesterday morning convinced of AF but then, nothing... I've had food on the brain, but I am convinced it's all in my head and I just want to use thinking being PG as an excuse to eat. Heh. I really don't feel anything save some physical symptoms coming and going. Emotionally, I feel normal.

I know it takes longer than this to actually get PG, KWIM? But OTOH, I feel like I should test, since I'm truly late. Last night we went out and I was so tenative about drinking. I'm very cautious in that respect, and I feel like if I don't want to drink while PG, I should know if I am or not...

See that is my problem too, I feel like I would know in my heart and body if I was pregnant and wouldn't have to rely on a test, but also, I should probably test bc I wouldn't want to be drinking if I am pregnant... I don't know what to tell you, it is all so confusing. Since you are late, I might just say test.

just as a side note...

drinking at 4 weeks wont have any effect on baby... as baby doesn't have a "connection" to your blood until week 5

so a small glass of wine wont hurt...

i had a doctor explain this to me because i was so worried about the fact that i found out i was pg with DD because what was actually morning sickness i was thinking was a horrible hangover from a night of heavy drinking. she told me there was absolutely nothing to worry about as that early on the alcohol doesn't touch the baby at all...

Though I still don't recommend it...

That story always makes me giggle I am so happy your DD is fine You always hear stuff like that, I think we all just want to know instantaneously whether we are pregnant or not! haha

May I add-- your family is gorgeous! Your dd is so pretty, and you ds is such a handsome cutie! Your DBF is pretty cute too I love men in uniform (even when they are out of uniform) there is just something about how they hold themselves- also- I am slightly Biased-- my hubby is an army officer. haha

Lauren--I think your chart is looking really good! : I saw what you said over in the one thread and it's the same for me too. I am 26 and completely happy with where I am. I have a wonderful husband who is so loving and kind. It could just be the two of us forever and I would be completely happy. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE children and want 4 or 5 but am so blessed to have the life that I already have. Thanks for reminding me of that!

AFM: FF changed my O day when I put my temp in this morning so I am once again at 3dpo. It alse changed my coverline though from 97.1 to 97.4. I'm not sure how that works but I'm assuming it's because my new O date is so much higher than my original. I actually think I probably O'd on CD14 still because of the jump on CD15, but I figured it was better to go with the later date so I would not be "late" a day early! If my cycle is the same as last month, I've got ONLY 10 days left! :

So this is what I've been doing in my spare time... documenting the lives of these little guys...

http://oinkoinkmoo.com/cookie-litter/

Feel free to browse through all images and folders, but may I direct you in particular to my personal favourites,

http://oinkoinkmoo.com/cookie-litter/week7/m4.jpg
and
http://oinkoinkmoo.com/cookie-litter/week7/p2.jpg (I call this girl Fleur de Lis, because of her forehead marking)



All photos are my doing. I know, I need a better hobby. What can I say, I'm unemployed and taking photos of mutts is the most interesting thing I can think of right about now. Anyone around San Antonio want a lab pup? My aunt needs to adopt them out pronto.

I'm having some mega horrible stomach cramps. What the @#% did I eat?? I never stopped cramping from AF. Ugh. Sucky sucky. I hope tomorrow's Easter is awesome for everyone though, I'm going to eat lots and lots of cake for you all

CD31 Had distinguishable EWCM yesterday (odd) and being late combined with some other symptoms prompted me to test today. BFN, which I'm really okay with, but really confused. I guess if it goes another week, I'll test again.
post #155 of 390
here is my update. today is CD19. I dunno when I ovulated or if I have already. All my opks are coming up neg. I had lots of EWCM from friday till today. Im thinking now is my O time. I did AI on wed, I hope that wasnt too early, and again tomorrow, hopefully not too late. Im not exactly sure when my 2ww starts....

Spotting Update

I had intermitant pink spotting (mixed in with CM) on 10 DPO and now again on 13 DPO. If I hadn't been looking for it, I'm sure I wouldn't have even noticed, but I'm a bit obsessed lately. I tested yesterday morning and got a BFN. Was going to test again this morning, but decided not to as I was already feeling pretty emotional and didn't want another BFN. Today was also my birthday and really the only think I wanted was to be pregnant.

Probably won't test again until Wednesday, 16 DPO, until AF shows!

Aww thank you so much

I also love how he holds himself... but moreso how he holds me

And thats not meant to be perverted :P

I feel protected by simple things like how he places his hand lightly on my lower back when we're in line at a store... little things that make me feel like he would never let anything happen to me.

I think that's a HUGE part of why I want to have his children rather than being apprehensive after having two already... that this time around I just know they'll be well cared for by the father and not just myself.

I am so excited he is coming home soon!!! Any exciting getaways planned??? Coming home is amazing. After being separated for 15 months, it really just can't even be understood by someone who has not been through that kind of thing (deployment).

Monday check in:
Name: GrapesBunch (Rachel)
Date: 4/13
Where are you at in your cycle: CD20, 5dpo
Appointments: None
Symptoms if they apply: None
Testing: Will test next Thursday, April 23 if no AF (CD30, 15dpo)
Thoughts: I have felt great this whole cycle so far--hardly any cramps even during AF and that's not normal for me. I'm hoping to stay strong during the 2ww and not convince myself I am pregnant or test early.

Date: 4/13
Where are you at in your cycle: CD32 11dpo
Appointments: None
Symptoms if they apply: vivid dreams and the starts of a yeast infection ugh
Testing: Not planning on testing anytime soon
Thoughts:My chart looks good, I think, but i think it might be a little misleading... honestly I still think I od on monday of last week so I would only be 7dpo. I have been going to dinner parties, drinking wine, eating brie, eating sushi, doing bad pregnancy stuff bc I feel like I missed my O date with the Bding hahaha we will see huh? haha
