I know how you feel, obsessing over CM and CP is frustrating because it varies so so much. I am not due for my AF for another 5 days, but I am totally obsessing over my CP and CM. Mine is now quite low, but still soft and very closed, also lots of lotiony CM. I am not sure what the cervix is supposed to do after O and then in very early pregnancy. I never ever checked my Cervix once during my pregnancies with my 2 kids, now I sorta wished I did. Maybe someone else out there has some words of wisdom......

AFM: No real changes, boobs feel a little fuller today, kind of sore I guess..but that could also be AF which is due in about 5 days. I am 9DPO, CD 24 today, and my last cycle was a 27, the one before a 29 and the one before a 28 so I am guessing I O'd on CD 15, but could have been 14. Ugh OPK's NEXT TIME LOL. I am going to try my hardest to wait until March 1st to test... I hope that I make it!

Ugh...need some time to vent, ladies! I'm going crazy with this 2ww! I started out really not expecting much this cycle, just wanting to learn how to chart and understand my body better. After I FF gave me my O date, I really stayed pretty realistic, since DH and I didn't BD on that actual day, and my temps went up so slowly, too. But ever since my breasts started hurting 3 days ago, plus a few other unusual passing symptoms, I've been just itching to take a HPT! I did break down and bought a couple at the dollar store yesterday, but I was trying to save them. Last night I told DH about them, and he really encouraged me to wait. I told him I would wait a couple more days, but then I spent half the night dreaming about BFPs, then woke up 1 1/2 hours early, needed to go to the bathroom, but just laid there arguing with myself about whether I should just get up and take the stupid test! As a result, I didn't even get to take my BBT today because I'd been tossing and turning so long that I didn't see the point. And I finally decided to keep my word and control myself, so I didn't test this morning after all.

So, I've been fighting a bad mood all day, trying to be patient and tell myself not to get my hopes up (too late?). But I just want to know. If AF is going to come, I wish I would start spotting and get it over with already. (I usually have 3-4 days of spotting before my flow really starts.) How do you keep yourself from going crazy and wait to do a HPT?

I honestly have no idea how to control myself lol... I think the only reason I am not testing right now is because I havnt bought any, and I havnt bought nay because I wil have ot bring my kids into the store with me and I hate ot buy preg. tests with my kids there because the inevitably startto scream or fight lol, and then ppl stare at the lady with 2 kids who is buying a preg. test hahah.

I am 5-6 DPO and had some creamy-ish CM today when I wiped and a tad bit yeasterday. ??? Anyone?
post #385 of 472
Lotiony-CM from 1DPO until now which is 9DPO for me!!

Also wanted to add to my 'symptom' list, that I have been crampy all afternoon, feels like AF, which I am hoping is good news because I had cramps with both my pregnancies before I knew I was preg.

Jasmine- Your chart looks awesome! It looks to me like you timed it pretty perfectly! And so far I think your temp not dropping is a good sign! Maybe tomorrow is a better day for a BFP!!!

Sounds like we may have a few BFPs in our future! I'll keep my fingers crossed for ya! :-)

AFM, still have only a light flow today.... 10 days of spotting and now today is day 4 of light AF.... which means I've had 14 days of bleeding in a row... so seriously guys, did my body just decide to double the length of EVERYTHING?? So frustrating! It also doesn't help that I get extremely anemic during my period which makes me so weak, light headed, and generally grumpy. Right now I'm hoping I wake up in the morning and my body snapped with it and now I suddenly have normal 28 day cycles again... wouldn't that be nice?! lol. Hope everyone has a great Tuesday night! We ordered Dominos tonight since all of us were feeling lazy. Even Melanie (my lactose intolerant little angel) is getting some pizza tonight! Our local store does a great job of taking extra care of our custom order pizza with no cheese or garlicy sauce. :-)

Have a great night tonight ladies and Happy testing to those of you in the TWW!

It's really really really tough, but I've managed to do it so far this month... 10 DPO today, with a normal 11 day luteal phase. Every time I have to pee, I think... I could take one NOW! But I hold off, realizing it won't make me pregnant, and I'll drive myself crazy. FF says I should wait until Thursday to test... no pregnancy symptoms, so I'll wait... UGH!

I know the feeling! Of course it's when you go in to buy the tests that they act up and you want to just cry.

So we put an offer in on house and we're in negotiations, we'll know by tuesday at the latest if its ours, I had a significant drop the other day, then my temp went up a bit and dropped again and now its had a significant rise so I hope that is an indication of a slow rise and an O because my CM has been watery/EWCM

AF started today........
post #397 of 472
Can someone please take a look at my chart and tell me what the eff you guys think is going on? I have no idea and I had several days of EWCM/Watery CM and now its creamy I'm so confused by this charting stuff.

post #398 of 472
To me it looks like you ovulated on the 22nd and were fertile from the 19-22 or so... though I am fairly new at all this. So it makes sense that now you would have creamy CM.
post #399 of 472
So if I ovulated why would FF not tell me I ovulated? Do you not get crosshairs for a few months?
post #400 of 472
Sweetmama--You have to have three days of higher temps before FF will give you crosshairs. It was hard for me to wait for them, too! But they showed up eventually!

LuckyMama--Hooray! Congrats! So happy for you! Here's hoping for more BFPs this month!
