Hi! I've been missing a while because of visiting family and moving, but we now have internet set up in our new place--hooray! I've missed a lot--it looks like a lot of people need congratulating! Yay for all the BFPs! I hope your good luck rubs off on us all.

My chart has gone completely haywire. I hope it's from holiday/moving stress and calms down now that we're settling in. My DH wants me to take a pregnancy test because he thinks I've not ovulated or had AF because I'm pregnant. I know I'm not, but I'll probably take one just to show him. What are the odds I can do that without getting sad when it's negative? I'm still recovering from the evil trick my body played on me for Christmas; it sure looked like I ovulated on Christmas Eve, but alas, no. It was absolutely crushing.

Happy 2010, everyone! Hopefully we'll all be ringing in 2011 with lovely new squishy babies!

Thanks for the new thread, and Happy New Year!

My chart is kind of confusing this month. I don't think I've O'd yet, but I just got crosshairs saying I'm 6dpo. I think I either just O'd on CD 19 or I'm about to in the next day or so. I hope I'm not 6dpo, because our timing would make our chances just about nil, but I guess it would be a good sign for my overall fertility if my O date moved that early in my cycle. What do you all think?

Yuba_River~ I'm not sure about your chart, since looking at the one before according to ff having a doted coverline it said it wasn't sure about ovulation, yet your first chart it looks like clear ovulation. Maybe just override FF to the O day you think you O'd on. I had to do that one cycle because it tried to say i O'd on cd14 with a 16day lp which totally conflicted what my tcoyf chart showed.

Happy New Year! Well, we finally night-weaned! Phew! It's been about 3 weeks with approx. 6-7 hours at night with no nursing and some longer stretches during the day also. Any thought on how soon I might see O return? I'm going to start charting. Anything else that might help?

Happy New Year, Mommas!

Not much new to report here. Still charting, still nursing. DD is 7.5 months now, eating minimal solids and still nursing in demand morning & night. This morning I got my highest temp ever. Not sure if I had restless sleep this morning, but tomorrow should clue me in, hopefully. I've been haviing increased CM compared to the past few months. Clear & watery yesterday... I think I might be the only woman who can't feel her cervix, so no insight from that. I would be delighted if I O'd, even if we missed it.

Updated List To Here

PhotoJournMama~ Welcome to the group. I put you under waiting to O.

Wendlynnn~ No advice besides saying its great that your going to start charting temps.

post #13 of 418
Well I O'd - so you can put me in the 2WW now!! I am currently 3 DPO! :-) We timed things perfectly too- so really praying it happend!! Post O temps are a bit low- will start 200 mg(at bedtime) progesterone now because I have a progesterone deficency and always miscarry if I don't get it started asap to help my lining thicken up etc. I will start testing around 8-9 DPO and if and *when*(thinking positive!!) I get a positive HPT then I will up my progesterone to 200 mg morning and night (twice per day) until I am around 14 weeks preggo- then the doctor has me gradually taper off.

Here's my chart link if anyone wants to take a peek.

We're trying. Still lots of night nursing. DD is teething, so needs lots of comfort. We got pregnant early summer, miscarried in September, had a D&C. Took some time to menstruate again. The time from start to start between my first two menses was only 21 days, so I am really unsure what is happening. I haven't been charting because the temperature thing doesn't seem to work when I nurse so frequently at night. Nonetheless, we are trying and hoping.

Lots of luck to all the other nursing mamas out there! Hopefully we will all have a new baby to hold and love in 2010!

Thanks for looking at my chart, Socali! I just got my first ever positive OPK, and FF took away the crosshairs, so now I think I'm gearing up to O in the next day or so. Whohoo!

GL to those in the TWW! When is everyone planning to test?

I am on CD 8... but wont be charting closely this month.

Hi.I'm trying to lessen my ds' daytime nursing. He is 16 months and I thought if I could feed him when he wakes, has a nap and again at bedtime, then maybe that would help get my fertility back. I don't want to night wean because we co-sleep and honestly I just don't have the energy. I have heard conflicting advice - some say it is necessary to night wean, others say it is necessary to have 6 hours between nursing, others say it needs to be less than 100 minutes of nursing a day. Anyway, I'll try the daytime partial weaning and see what happens.

The hardest part of this is that my LO wants it all the time, so I pretty well can't sit down without him pulling up my shirt! I keep offering drinks and food, but I guess it is the comfort he needs.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would just really love to have a chance at ovulating again!I'm also doing acupuncture and taking herbs to try and help things along.

Ds slept 8 hours without waking last night!!!! I'm sooooo happy we decided to nightwean, now if my first ppaf would show up we'd be good to go!
post #19 of 418
Nightweaning is what did the trick for me! I got my first PPAF about a week after nightweaning- and my dd now sleeps every single night ALL thru the night without waking up! It was super easy to nightwean her- she only fussed a little a couple of nights off and on, but I offered her comfort and rocking and her paci- Dr. Gordon's methods are very gentle for the child. :-)

Hello, popped in here a few months ago and couldn't figure out what exactly was going on in the thread, started charting recently and think I understand better now. Been TTC for 8 months, probably a few DPO. Hard to tell as I got LH surge on tests for 6 days straight and ovu seems to be late in the cycle. I am checking to see if I have short luteal phase, as I am still nursing my just turned 3yo. Checking to see if maybe progesterone low/prolactin too high. I also have thyroid issues, partially medicated, and take a number of supplements, but that has not helped yet obviously. Hoping that the charting can help give me a better idea of what is going on. If my AF comes at the usual time, then my LP will definitely be too short. I will have to check that fertility program you guys are using. Maybe it is easier than the one I use now. OK, good luck to everyone. At this point, I am just waiting to see if AF shows and when.
