LindsayK, lol. I've been so overwhelmed and realized in my obsession that perhaps I let my cross-posting get out of hand! Sorry for not updating sooner!

I finally got my BFP(s)!
:::

Questionable stuff yesterday afternoon, but yesterday evening had a strong BFP on an IC, and a faint line this morning (finally) on the FRER (invert here). Hoping they just keep getting darker!

That would be awesome! Maybe they will change it so we can link to our charts straight from our name or under our name on our posts.

Have a great weekend everyone! Maybe I'll have crosshairs by Monday!

Where are you in your cycle: CD 21, 4DPO

Thoughts: Getting anxious and frustrated that I have to wait another 9 days to test, but it will go by fast considering I'm going outta town next week for 4 days to visit my Mom. Maybe I will take a First Response with me to test the morning I leave because that will be right around when AF is due or 4 wks PG.

Woo hoooO!!!! :::

*phew* thought I was gonna burst holding that in. I checked your graph when I first sat down yesterday to read posts, and I was all set to congratulate you, but then I read all the posts, and you hadn't announced yet. Gak! Too much excitement! So happy for you!

Ok girls, lets get some more BFPs!!!!

Where are you in your cycle: I think I am either ovulating today or I did two days ago. I don't really understand my cycle as it fluctuates sometimes...I got my period May 25 and again June 25 so does that mean I have a 31 day cycle? Maybe I'm not ovulating until tomorrow? ahhh I'm so mixed up...hoping for a BFP though! We just decided to start trying again about a week ago. We have a nearly 4 year old son, and we're both 25 (been married 6 years).
Appointments: none yet
Symptoms if they apply: n/a
Testing: not yet...
Thoughts: I fluctuate between trying not to get my hopes up too much and excited

Just checking in, since this thread is growing and growing, and I haven't said much!

I'm on cycle day 11, so gearing up to O soon. I had some strange EWCM on day 8 & 9, which is strange. This is our first cycle TTC and DH is taking it very 'seriously' DTD every day, sometimes twice per day! haha.

I'm using my diva cup to keep the semen in. I cannot stand the drippy feeling...how do you guys handle that? It wakes me up when I roll over. So, I keep my diva cup under my pillow I hope it gets demoted to semen catcher for good.

Hope everyone is having a lovely fertile weekend Lets see some BFP!

Meh. I sort of feel like this isn't going to be my cycle which stinks because it puts me out for a few months (I'm going to be at an internship for a month, several states away from my DH). I had a few positive OPK's a few days ago, but my cervical mucus this cycle has been so strange. Like watery/creamy my entire cycle but in really, really small quantities. No egg white mucus at all (which is unusual for me...I feel like I normally see that at some point in my cycle). Is it possible for sperm to survive with only small amounts of CM? We've been DTD quite a bit so maybe if there's enough of it hanging out? Sighhhh...

if you arent checking at your cervix itself, its always possible that you had the EWCM but it sstayed up inside you.

I've been fishing around my os to try and get CM from in there, but maybe i'm not digging enough Since I've been around when I think I should have been fertile I've been nervous that if I'm up there fishing for CM that I'm disturbing any sperm that's up there, though I'm pretty sure that's not possible.

Hi everyone, I'm checking in!

I'm currently on CD 14. A little confused about my cervix tbth. Last cycle was 27 days long with positive OPKs on days 13, 14 and 15, and EWCM on days 12-17. Last cycle my cervix was high almost out of reach every day except 2 days. On CD 13 it was MSO and CD 14 it was LMO. Those days completely match up with my pos OPKs and CM so I'm confident that those were the Oing window.

This cycle I am already on day 14 and have no EWCM and no pos OPK. Which would be fine except I'm confused by my cervix. It was LMO on CD 10, MMO on CD 11, and then went super high again. Now it's very firm and has been hanging out up high, but today it's low again, but still very firm. I find that odd. We have BD twice already in the past few days, on CD 11 and CD 13. SO basically after BD on CD 11 my cervix headed for the hills. : Of course I have no idea what this all means.

Oh and did I mention I got weepy during IRONMAN?? When he flew in in his ridiculous suit and saved some villagers I was all "its so emotional what a good man what a good deed awwwww *sheds a few tears*"

So I'm either stressing myself over TTC to the point of crying over Robert Downey Jr in a supersuit or something is UP.
Edit: figured out how to attach my chart! Here it is : http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/281a8b

Are you checking your cervix at the same time each day? IMO the cervix is the least reliable indicator for TTC. It can dramatically change position or texture throughout the course of the day, and depending on how diligent you are about checking (or even in spite of being consistent) it can seem to be all over the place...at least from my very limited personal experience. This is why it's important to use the other indicators - CM, BBT, opks - because then you're looking at the big picture which is more likely to be accurate. Given that you had positive OPKs and EWCM last cycle (but not yet this cycle), I would say you are probably getting close to ovulating but it may be a few days later than last time.

I check everything in the early afternoon, about 2pm, but since I started getting the weird cervix stats I have been checking that every time I go pee, and it's been the same. : Oh well. I'm going to keep up with the CM and OPKs and hopefully that will give more clear data. Although I just FORGOT to do an OPK... crud. So today's will be a few hours later than it should be.

Hi ladies-

Just checking in, as I haven't stopped by in a while! Sorry don't have much time to catch up and see how everyone's doing- work's been crazy, and we're remodeling the bedroom, so weekends are pretty much out too. Anyway, congrats to all the BFP's I've missed and good luck to everyone else!

Where are you in your cycle: CD 12 and waiting to O-
Appointments: Will likely be getting the results from my DH's S.A. today! So happy about that
Symptoms if they apply: n/a
Testing: not for a while
Thoughts: I've gotten a little less crazy about the whole process- I still temp every day and do the CBFM, but enter the temps like every two days instead of every day- went to a party on Saturday, and the guest of honor brought her 3 month old, and there was a 2 month old, and one of my good friends that is due in November was there too. So all in all in was a baby fest- had fun anyway though. Not visiting the boards as often has kept my mind of things, though I'll pop back in now and again to chart stalk. I'll come back and let everyone know about the S.A. results when I find out. Have a great week ladies!
