Ooooh! Good luck! I'll be thinking of you and sending you tons of egg-catching vibes.

@VillageMom: Congrats!

AF isnt here yet but with a large temp drop she should be here in less than 24 hours now...

Im about to attempt to get un-snowed-in and im sure the stress from that will bring her on quite well.

12dpo and a bfn. :-(. It was so easy when we conceived DD- first cycle, no charting. My mom always conceived on the first cycle too. I know I'm only three cycles into this ( we weren't trying in the first but weren't tta either), so I need to give it more time, but I'm feeling so down about it. I feel like we must be doing something wrong. Sorry, just a vent. Thanks for reading.

I so feel you. My DS1 was conceived first try. DS2 was a surprise (they're 16 months apart!). I spent the last 20 months since DS2 was born feeling like I was narrowly avoiding pregnancy at every turn, and now, here I am. Beginning my 3rd PP cycle, two months of "good timing", and no + .

I know it's normal, but it doesn't feel like it is. I guess I somehow felt like I was entitled, or in charge, or in control, or something. It really hit me this cycle, I guess, how miraculous conception truly is.

I want another baby so much. Hugs, mama.

I'm currently not testing (obviously), but continue in the true obsessive way by scrounging the corners of the internet for the best prices on pre-seed, fertilaid, ovulation tests, pg tests.... what are the odds DH will actually agree to buying any of this?

Recommendations, anyone?

All three of my first pregnancies were when trying to avoid... we have been trying to conceive now for... well...

this will be our 23rd cycle, 7th where we actually got to try...

But I am not giving up hope and neither should you! That little one is there waiting (ours even has a name already) but they will not come until they are good and ready.

Thanks, Erin& Mae. That's what I needed to hear. I know a lot of women have been ttc for a lot longer. I should count my blessings with the one pregnancy & just keep trying. :-)

Congrats to VillageMom6!!!

AFM - um.... so I'm finding it next to impossible not to obsess about this stretch (lol, pun intended) of super slippery, thin CM that seems to be present in copious quantities, allegedly after O has been confirmed by temping.

Thoughts? Any veteran mamas have lots of fertile-looking CM following O of their pregnant cycles?

It's just.... SO WEIRD! And I'm obsessing!

Not in pregnant cycles that I know of (i didnt pay attention back then) but non-pregnant cycles ive gotten it without my O date being changed.

Well this, at the very least, is a relief to read. I keep having freakout moments that I didn't O yet (or did yesterday, or today) and that this whole cycle can be taken out w/ the trash.

(As always) thanks for responding, Mae.

AF showed up and I'm actually thrilled to greet her! Not the pains she brought along though...ouch! But I am super duper excited to have Christmas LOVE MAKING!!!!! I have 1 FRER and 1 digi...that I'm trying to promise myself to wait until Jan 9th to take...lets see how long I can keep that promise to myself!!!

Mae- What a CUTE kitty. Oh, my! How many shovelfuls did you shovel today? yikes!

So many hugs to those who are down and discouraged. Hang in there!

AFM- I have convinced myself that the patch of EW I had last week *must* have been when I O'd. I have had NO mucus of any kind this week and my CBFM hasn't budged off of "low". Unfortunately, I didn't poas for the monitor during the 2 days of EW because I was on Dh's birthday trip. We did gets some bding in though so I'm okay with whatever happens. I'm supposed to go for a progesterone draw on Monday (since the RE and I thought I might O Tuesday/Wednesday)...I'm trying to decide though if I should test Saturday/Sunday beforehand just in case...I'd ask for thoughts but this is the test/obsess thread so I think I'll get resounding yeses! Saturday could be 10 dpo. This is a great reminder though of why I need to temp.

So, should I test Saturday???

shovelfulls? LOL if i counted I would know how insane i was to try.

my driveway, however, is long enough to comfortably put three vehicles in it trunk-to-nose with a few feet between each.... so not exactly a small feat!

WTH is going on with my LP? I mean, how exact is this supposed to be?
First cycle , it was 9 days but I had my IUD out that cycle so I wasn't too surprised that it was so short. Last cycle, it was 11 days. This cycle, I'm on day 13 with no AF in sight. O was really clear this cycle, but maybe FF got it wrong last cycle? I can't find any info on iud's causing lp irregularities. I am resisting the urge to keep testing because I suspect FF was just wrong last cycle, but darn it, if AF doesn't come today I am testing again tomorrow!

was it a copper or hormone IUD?

Copper ones do cause irregularities but they seem to even out much faster than the hormone ones do (we see both here all the time... and of course some women who never have any problem)

Mae, I'm excited for you! Good luck!
Jennifer, me too! I'm going to try to hold off on the good ones but I might give in to the $tree temptation.
