That's frustrating. Last month (when I didn't temp the whole month) I thought my temps were textbook. Now they're a lot more scattered. I don't know if fit's sleeplessness (no more than usual with a nursling and weird sleep habits anyway), but I'm sure I could use exercise too.

It's always good to keep in mind that we won't all have textbook charts. Try not to stress about it!

YAY! :


afm - I had a weird temp thing this morning. When I first woke up (around 6:30) it said 96.7 - low for me. I took it again immediately and it said 96.8. ds started nursing so I settled in for a little bit, when I took it around 7:00 it was up to 97.3.
I *really* don't think it's an O dip (which I definitely had last month) b/c I'm only on CD13 and I've been O'ing around CD19. That would be way early. But what was up with those low temps? I tossed them, b/c I thought for sure I messed up somehow.

Now I'm worried that I let dh leave for work without BD'ing!

Good morning! We had a very busy weekend with DH's graduation and getting things ready for him to start his new job this week. He is reminding me to be strong but sitting around the house with no less than 8 HPT is not making it any easier.

I am 11dpo today and have no sign of AF yet. My LP over the past 4 months has been between 13-15 days. My plan originally was to test Friday, but I'm not so sure I can wait that long. I don't have any symptoms I guess, but the last few days my libido has been increased. That's rare for me because even taking maca, I really don't have much desire after O especially this close to AF. This morning I also had a glob of snotty like CM...and it was yellow. I don't really know what it means, but I've got my :. We did BD last night, but it was nothing like semen.

So, DH told me I could test if I wanted but I'm not sure if I should. I may hold off and see what my temp does in the morning.

I'm sorry about AF P&H Maybe next month will be your month

Nanette, YAY for the bellydance classes!! : I believe that the dance is good for fertility (one of the reasons I need to get back into it ) it focuses the energy around your reproductive area, and also empowers you as a woman (it is not sexual but sensual) it enhances your libido it jusy gets things going, and is good to do during pregnancy


GrapesBunch, :

MahnaMahna, that is strange (?)

Beccasteve03, looking good, GL :

Good morning everyone! I'm so glad it's Monday..( Is that b/c my preg tests will be arriving by mail this week? ) Teehee.

Grapes, Are you gonna test? I can't wait to hear!

Afm, Today my temp went back up, and I have 35 pregnancy points. LOL Not sure what those points mean, but I'll take what I can get. Trying not to get my hopes up like I did last month.

Hope everyone has a great day!!

I forgot to say, Danielle, I had implantation like you describes yours, including the diarrhea. I thought the cramp was bc I had to go to the bathroom, but it was inplantation. I hope that was it for you :

Well...I really want to, but I just went to the bathroom for the third time in the three hours I've been up...maybe fourth time...anyway, at 11dpo I'm assuming I wouldn't have enough HCG to get a BFP. I think I will test in the morning with FMU if my temp is stable or maybe/hopefully higher.

Covered up, closed my mouth and laid in bed, in and out of sleep. 5:10- 97.39, 5:20- 97.45. Which temp would you use???

I know this is over analysis to the extreme... but I'm thinking either fall back rise or environmental change made that first temp lower. Seeing it this morning was devastating, as I thought we had timed O perfectly on CD20.

...

DHs fortune cookie this week said,
"You will be unusually successful in business" (in bed). HELLO! SIGN!
at the fortune. i TOTALLY understand how frustrating that is. this always happens to me... i'll be SO sure of O, and then DD will rip the thermometer out of my mouth or i mouth-breathe or something happens that throws off my temp and makes it lower and i'm like AAAH WHAT IS GOING ON I HAVE NO IDEA. i would discard the temp, though, because mine is always lower if i mouth-breathe OR am colder than usual, and in your case you had both going on. : for an accurate temp tomorrow! and yes, searching for pregnancy charts in the gallery that resemble mine always make me feel better.

FYI, the way your chart is "linked" in your siggy is apparently not allowed according to mods! a lot of us put them as our homepage... but yeah, a few of us were "linking" charts like that until we learned that it's actually against the rules. just to let you know!

: waiting to know is a bit easier for me, i find, because you KNOW when you'll know by. meanwhile waiting to O is always more stressful because will you time BD right? will the egg actually show up? etc. i've been Oing CD24-33... being sure by CD21 sounds like a dream to me, lol!

: your symptoms sound good! i've heard some women say they get yellowish CM sometimes no matter what, but i've seen others mention that this has only happened to them in pregnancy, so : for you!

post #52 of 495
I was going to test today, but decided against it. The most I could be is 6dpo, although I'm not really sure. My temp has been around 97.3 the few times I temped earlier (late July) and yesterday morning it went up to 98.0 and then 97.8 today. So, maybe that means I O'd on Sunday, Aug. 1?? I've had lots of cramping and twings in my belly, so I'm hopeful. My hips have also been really achy for about 3-4 days. I've even had to sleep with a pillow between my knees, just like when I was pregnant every other time. I can't seem to get comfortable when I'm trying to sleep, so this is the only way to sleep atm. Honestly, I don't know if that's a sign or not. That and acid reflux (which usually only comes during preg. for me.) are my signs. I'm keeping FX'd.

I can't tell a lot from my chart, b/c I've been sporatic in charting.

I've been wondering about this, too. Saw something somewhere in a pregnancy book I was reading the online excerpt and it said several drinks at a time could interfere w/implantation. I never have more than two, but it hits me hard and lingers, so I guess I'll skip it in my 2ww from now on.

I'm 11dpo today too! Planning to test Thurs but am getting itchy to test sooner. No HPTs in the house, so I gotta get it together and go shopping. Normally by now I'd be having lots of creamy CM leading up to AF along with other usual symptoms but oddly enough I have very scant CM that is stickier and drier than I'm used to. My nipples are just a tiny bit sore, and I've had twinges of pain on and off on the outter sides of my hips.

Maybe we should vote somebody pregnant. I nominate Danielle for first August BFP! Then maybe Grapesbunch & I could tie for second? Who else is testing this week?
post #54 of 495
OK Ladies,
there are already 3 pages to this, and it just started this morning??!?!?!?! WOW! There is no way I can respond to everything, but I'll do my best... here goes, sorry in advance if I miss anyone!!

Virginia - your temps are a little crazy, but like some PPs have said, after a few days, I'd discard the one that you took it like 4 different times. sometimes, I just put it in, but check "sleep deprived" in the symptoms - this gives you an open circle, and FF doesnt give it as much weight when alalyzing your chart...

Nanette and P+H - both of you had such beautiful charts, I was sure I'd come this morning and see two glaring BFPs.

Grapes - Those symptoms ARE soooo promising!! and your chart looks great, still too!!

BelovedK - Yay for getting back to classes. you make it sound so wonderful, i might be looking for a class in my area! hopefully a very beginner class would be available, since I'd be jerking around like Elaine.

Mae- Good job treating yourself! I've had chocosplosions myself, and it's NO FUN! but a great reason to go out for a new one. and you're right - there are always better things to spend the $ on if you are TTC, or working on a house, etc...

Caramiia- I agree with all PPs - get creative...!!

Beccasteve- congrats on the 2WW!!! at least you know there is an end in sight either way... either AF, or a BFP!! Hopefully, the latter!

YYYM - how's it hanging! waiting to O is Booooring! hopefully you and DH are "passing the time" well.


MahnaMahna - First, I have to say that I get this song in my head EVERY.SINGLE.DAY after reading this thread!!! secondly, i think ditching the temps was the right move. too much confusion. I think skipping one day, 6 days away from usual O is OK.... let DH save his evergy for tonight.!!!


AFM,
I have a confession to make. I POAS last night. I dont know what drove me to it, but DH left to run to the store for something... I was all alone in the house, and something just compelled me to test. Of course, it was BFN. I am not losing hope, but this is EXACTLY what I wanted to avoid by waiting to test!! Now I dont know if i should cut my losses, move on, and stop my nightly womb medititation, or if I should just sit around and wait another 6 days... I guess either way, I'm waiting 6 days for af, right? I am SO all talk. I thought I could hold out, but I didnt. : I couldnt even tell DH I tested bc i was bummed, yet also so embarassed that i couldnt stick to my original plan.

Now it's just taking all my energy to not go to $tree, since the test I took was at 9PM with like second to last pee of the day - of course, I am giving myself all these reasons to keep testing, but i think since i only have a digi now, I will just wait. oh the things i put myself through. sigh.

I guess I'm going to have to skip it in the 2ww too. But it is ironic that several drinks is often the *cause* of pregnancy, eh?
post #56 of 495
Hi everyone, can I join in? This is my 2nd cycle of TTC... first cycle didn't end so well. Even though I wasn't expecting a BFP on the first cycle, AF showed up the day of my friend's baby shower AND the day I met my seven month old neice for the first time... who kept trying to get me nurse her (damn low cut shirts and the fact that I look/sound/smell just like my sister). Needless to say, throw PMS in to the mix and that was a day with a lot of tears.

But I am here, CD 14ish (not charting but will probably start if we make it to cycle 4 without a BFP). At least I'm in the fun part of the cycle

I will try to keep up with you all without getting fired for being on MDC all day :

Can you add me to Waiting to O for now?

Its not after implantation that it can harm the fetus, its after the placenta starts working (around 6 weeks) that it can.

And its not an anti-nutrient if you don't go overboard, I never go overboard because of alcoholism in my genes. I have a drink or two... and that is perfectly healthy (when not pregnant) even if it were a daily basis though mine is monthly (so says all three doctors I have spoken with about it; a family practitioner, an oncologist and a nutritionist) Granted, I'm not sitting there drinking beer or straight drinks... which I do question the health of. I have mixed drinks like strawberry daiquiris or a glass of red wine which is VERY healthy for you.

The reason I don't do it when TTC not even a little, is I'm always afraid a little will make me want more... and it seems when I'm TTC my self control drops to approximately 0... lol

Thanks. I have already looked at the "low post-O temps, negative HPT before positive HPT, O from CD 16-CD25" charts... they give some hope... but not quite enough... i dont want go give up, but this was what I was trying to avoid. Luckily, I have a busy week ahead of me to keep me occupied.
post #60 of 495
Virginia - From my experience, I just went either with the first one or the middle temp. Because even if it (dreadfully) took my crosshairs away, I would know by the next day or two if it was really just a fluke or fall-back.

MahnaMahna - This month I had all the right signs and temps that FF said I O'd on cd14 and I usually O on day 18 or 19. This was really early for me too! Ever! Iguess we'll see in a few days what your temps do.

AFm - Temps still dropping, but no AF. This cycle has been really weird for me. A textbook chart with a bfn, but I also O'd about 4-5 days earlier than normal. So now I'm lost on when to expect AF. I figured I'd still have my normal 14 day LP, but that would have brought AF yesterday. If I have a normal 32-33 day cycle then shell be here Friday. What do you think? I also started having what I'd classify as "Wet" cm yesterday, but there is no category for that on FF. lol Watery? creamy? It's not sticky enough to be ewcm, but it's the same coloring and such. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/6266a here's my chart, and I have one musing; do you think it's possible that I actually O'd on day 16? I know the temps started going up before that, but then it'd be closer to normal O day, and make my cycle longer like it usually is.
