!! So many congrats and blessings to you!
Yuba_River, fx for your tww
zwitterion, hope you get to feeling better soon. We recently fought the household illness that never ends and it sure is no fun.
, I woke up this morning pretty pleased that my temp had jumped a huge spike. I thought maybe what you all were saying about yesterday's nipple pain being O was right. FF even put my crosshairs back.
Then I got out of bed and, well, I'm calling it this month. This is more than just heavy spotting.
found me... at least I think? It is really weird, it is very, very light AF- which is VERY abnormal for me. Barely enough to fill a liner in a few hours. But I've been having progressively heavier spotting for the past five days. That's gotta be AF, right??? My first ppaf was a completely normal af with no spotting before, so this is kinda bizarre for me.
Anyone have weird periods or weird spotting with Vitex? It is probably just my pp hormones getting back to normal, but this is also my first cycle on Vitex...
Anyway, I'm calling CD1. I'd say move me to waiting to O, but I'm already there.
On the upside, from what I can research, the chance of being ovulatory after two ppaf's is pretty good. So, onward and upward.
On the downside (pardon me while I'm bummed for a sec), I *really* wanted a Sept/Oct baby. sigh. and, the wait to O looks long with my forever long cycles...
We've talked it over as a fam and, depending on when I O, I think we're skipping ttc in March/early April. DS's bday is literally xmas. It is one of his favorite things about himself- having a holiday bd. and, it is tight on our budget and schedule to add a bday to all the holidays (we do solstice as our immediate fam, then xmas with extended fam).... a lot of other reasons, too, honestly, but another December baby just doesn't feel right for us.
Okay. Onto this month.
Fx for me that this will be my cycle.
