Bummer. But it's still well above coverline....I'm new to charting but I thought that was not necessarily enough of a temp drop to indicate AF is coming?

ETA: Oh, I see your Jan chart is similar. Okay. I believe you now.

Jan chart is actually this month since ovulation only with vaginal temps...

you don't need a huge drop for AF to come, it doesn't need to be below the coverline, it just needs to be a visible temp drop and that is...

danielle, thanks for the new thread! Can you add my chart to the list, please?

I am still "waiting to O" I think.... unless someone wants to take a gander at my chart and guess otherwise! FF is confused.

the drop in temp on CD 16 is a fluke, BTW. i woke up 1.5 hrs before usual, it was cold sleeping with the fan on, and i had a U/S that day that confirmed i had NOT ovulated...

I am however getting twinges onthe right side today... thats the side where the U/S showed the biggest egg(s).

decided to start a new meditiation whenever i get stressed: I CAN get pregnant again. I WILL ovulate normally. My eggs WILL grow correcrly. we WILL conceive soon.

will this help? who knows! but here's to hoping!

The affirmation pros would tell you to phrase these things in the present tense and being very positive about it. (And also not put things in a way that sort of really is just a reverse of the problem.) For example, for prosperity, "Money comes to me easily and abundantly" is a much more positive message to your unconscious mind than "I am going to get out of debt"--in the second message the thing that really hooks you in is the word "debt!" and that's what you end up getting more of! When you say get pregnant "again" it makes me think of your earlier pregnancy loss--not the healthy sticky baby you are going to have soon!

How about something like, "My body is working perfectly. My eggs are healthy and strong. I get pregnant easily and my body nurtures my baby until it's ready to be born."

Just a suggestion! (My credentials here are that I am married to Mr. New-Agey-Mystic Law-of-Attraction Self-Help Dude--he listens to Louise L. Hay meditation podcasts at bedtime every night!)

I'll take all the help I can get, MOMPY! Thanks! Credentials or not !

I will put the positive spin on it... and maybe someday, even believe it! i WANT to... but have trouble believing it, depending on the day of the week.

thanks!!

LZP: YAY for affirmations! I remember when I was pregnant with dd & she was breach I had pictures of babies being head down all over my house and would say like 30 affirmations aalll day long. "my baby is in the correct position to be birthed naturally and easily" ect ect ect

I totally believe in them. The dr that did my aversion said that Valley may not turn b/c her little butt was stuck in my pelvis but I was so sure she would that I ignored all the "emergency c/s" stuff they told me might happen. Anyways now I say "I AM pregnant" hehe. I got that from a book called The Mind Body fertility conncetion. it is really good, I totally suggest it. It also says when you eat to think about your womb and how your nurishing your future baby. EVERY time you eat!!

They also talked about a woman who had been trying for a looong time to get pregnant (2 or 3 years) and it turned out that when she would ovulate her falopian tube would contract like a if you were to make a fist keeping the sperm from getting to the egg!! It was all from stress. So after like 4 months doing this "plan" she was pregnant!

I haven't got to the whole plan chapter yet, but I'm really looking forward to it! Of course, by that time I'll already be pregnant

I'm going to de-lurk, I think Can you add me under "Waiting to be ready?" We're going to start trying probably within the next 6 months or so...for now I'm just starting to chart and doing some natural remedies for PCOS so hopefully I'll have a fighting chance once we commit to throwing away the Trojans

LZP: was I actually reassuring? or did I upset you? I hope I didn't upset you



AFM: ok, I am very confused. I had a very + opk on cd 13 with HSO and EWCM, then another very + opk on cd 16 with LF-partly open and creamy cm followed by dry cm!! on cd 14 15 it was almost + but not quite, and 17 was --

When did I O? no, I'm not temping. I get too stressed out by temping. More than I am now . I just want to know can you O twice? from each side? both my ovaries used to O when I was in HS (u/s confirmed) but it was more at the same time. Can you O from two seperate ovaries and have two seperate +opk's? Because I really don't want to be O'ing with a mostly closed cervix and no cm!! anyone have any ideas?

x posted in the ttc for 6+ months thread.

NO NO_ you didnt upset me at all!!! TOTALLY reassuring, Danielle!!!! seriously. I am always grateful for well thought out advice, and practical examples of what I;m trying to do. You said your DD did turn for birth, right?! that's awesome. I left the office for a while (to do something i might confess later- baby related; not illegal- no worries!!) and was doing the affirmations the whole way... so thanks ladies! is it wrong to be on the verge of tears while doing them? will that make it not work? (because right now, it's a little hard to believe them, and it makes me feel discouraged.)

Re: your spontaneous multiple ovulations... Hmmm.. i guess anything is possible, especially when it;s lunar related - i know my mom's cycles were tied to the new moon. Mine, however, are not so orderly, so I can't offer any personal experience on the matter. If it's possibl for a woman's body to not ovulate at all, when by all rights, things are made to work properly, then i guess it's possible to O twice... although, i guess it would have to be a special set of cosmic and hormonal variables that all line up at the right time.
if you get a BFP... maybe it will be 2!!!
post #37 of 504
LZP you have been so nice to me over there on the other thread. Now I am curious about your story. I see you waiting to ovulate still this cycle. Can you give me the condensed version (if you want) as I couldn't figure it out- I want to encourage you and I want to be informed!!

ok! I just wanted to be sure! and YES! my daughter turned. I was doing affirmations the WHOLE time! It needed outside interferance for her to turn, but she still did, against all odds and with her fighting the WHOLE time. She still fights about everything with me though

I think eventually you will believe your affirmations. I would listen to a CD at night when I was pregnant that said all of mine. So perhaps I brain washed myself!! LOL!!

And I think it would be super cool to have twins. But I'll take any baby I can get in my womb. I just have a feeling this is my month!! But again, maybe I'm just brainwashed! DH spoke life into my womb and my friend gave me an awesome fertility pot she made for me. It is so cool and I love it! I didn't plant anything in it yet though...so I don't know if that means anything. But its black on the inside (to represent the empty womb) then around the edge is grass to represent the life coming into my womb and there is rain on it to show my child will be a blessing and the sun on the bottom to show my child will change the world. Isn't that sweet?!

I can't wait to hear your story about today LZP, if you are up for telling it

Good morning, ladies!! I'm so excited! 17 dpo and my temp is still UP!! I'm going to wait another day or two to test because in the past I've had a 35 day cycle once in a blue moon. I only have one test left, and if it's positive, I won't have to buy any more!! Right now I'm missing all my usual pre-AF symptoms, which I thought were beginning a few days ago but disappeared around the time I had spotting (so I thought AF was here for sure). My hopes are up, DH is grinning, and I can't WAIT to go to bed so I can temp tmw morning!! Even last night I could hardly stay asleep, I was so excited about waking up!
post #40 of 504
Hi guys!! Just checking in very quickly...I Oed yesterday...huge temp increase today. I don't have a long time b/c I am going to see my midwife this morning. I will check back in later and let everyone know what she said. Hope everyone has a great and reproductive day!!
