I used to have it in the list at the beginning of the thread, but it is not there now sorry. I think my chart was about as ideal as you could get this month so if it hadn't worked out, I would have been crushed.

Congrats on the BFP mama, that is a perfect chart!

grr...I am SO over this cycle!

FF still has my crosshairs but my temps don't show any signs of actually ovulating so I have no idea why.

Socal, can you please move me to WT is going on now? ok, ok, I guess Waiting to O I just hope the Maca I just started will help because I have had regular (for me) 30-40 day cycles since 6 wks PP and now that I want to TTC and start charting, I get my first 75 (76?) day cycle

whew, sorry..guess I needed to vent a little

Hi Everyone,

Just checking in.... 8 DPO and alternately thinking that this is the month or that I'm for sure out this month. I have been feeling a little queasy and crampy, but I know that can be a sign of lots of things other than pregnancy. A friend gave me a bunch of IC tests, so of course I started using them yesterday--7DPO. I do think my chart looks good though. Just hanging in there!

Yuba your chart looks GREAT! Yay, are you testing tomorrow? I love cheap HPTs.
On that note, I drove all over creation looking for the Dollar Tree in the next town over from me. Why I didn't write down the address when I googled it I have no idea. I found The Dollar Store, Dollar Outlet, Dollar General and Family Dollar. FINALLY when I was about to give up I found it. Phew. I bought 20$ worth of OPKs and HPTs.

I took an HPT and got a faint +, but it's obviously from the MC as I haven't had a cycle yet. It was fainter than the + I got at 14DPO (which was actually pretty dark) so I hope I can get a negative within the next week. I don't want a super long cycle this time around... ugh.

I finally have some EWCM this morning! Woohoo! So I'm probably very close to ovulating (if at all). We had on the 9th & 10th, and I plan on sneaking in a session sometime today. Mwuhaha. Nothing like getting your tax refund in your bank account to make you want to celebrate by having sex! :

We found out yesterday that DH's cousin is going to be a daddy in October. They just got married last October too. Very excited for them! Izzy will have a little cousin close to her age (though they live on the other side of the country).

Do you ladies find that when your LO nurses more, your O is later?
Usually by cd 14 i get some fertile CM, at least watery if not egg white, even if i dont O until at least cd 20... But now on cd 15, there's still nothing. Elliot has been eating like a pig over the last 10 days, my skinny boy is actually getting chubby! Im also pumping to have a good stash for when my supply goes down (I pump 6oz a day or so). Im up to almost 40 bags in my freezer, yay! (each is about enough for one feed) Im hoping to have 60 by the time i get a bfp. Enough to keep him on *some* BM for 2 months.

Thanks for looking at my chart. BFN this morning and feeling very discouraged. I know it's still early (9DPO) but I feel crampy, and my temp was down a bit this morning. Still way over the cover line, but still....

Finnegansmom, I hope your body cycles again quickly

Babymango, I haven't had that happen personally, but it makes sense that it could push your O back.

Hoping everyone is doing well.
post #210 of 386
s all around..

yuba, sorry about the bfn, but it is still early!

babymango, i think its totally possible..lots of things can delay o and if he is nursing more its a bigger stress on your body,you are getting less sleep likely and so forth. i had a super long cycle 2 months back and im thinking this is exactly the reason..thought i was pregnant, but no..very frustrating!

luna.. good luck!and congrats on your nre-to-be niece or nephew!

finnegans mom..


AFM..dp has actually agreed to try this month i have been really hoping he would come around and tonight he said he wants to if i really want to. right in time as well. so here is hoping!! im in shock but happy. stunned but happy! now i just have to get my reluctant sleeper to bed. arg

Yuba, how was your temp this morning? 9 DPO is way super early still. Hang in there.

I was crampy last night but now I don't seem to be bleeding or crampy. And I think I need to motivate DH and the kiddos to head up to IKEA to buy a desk. Oh and a bunch of footstools since DS1 is now determined to stand up at the toilet when peeing but the little munchkin can't quite reach. LOL.

I got a haircut yesterday, like a real one at a salon for the first time in a LONG LONG time. I can't believe what a difference it makes. I actually don't look that haggard right now. Yay me! (of course, we'll see how I look after spending 3 hour in ikea with 2 toddlers on a saturday afternoon... yikes)

Please move me from Success Stories to Waiting to be Ready.

I went to the OB due to bleeding and pain. They confirmed a miscarriage.

Jennabella - I'm so, so sorry for your loss.
post #214 of 386
jennabella, im sorry for your loss
how heartbreaking to just find out and then have it all taken away. give yourself time to grieve.




afm..tons of ewcm and dp and i dtd last night (twice ) ! i have a november baby already, born in 2005.. but i loved having an autumn baby.. i would be to have another one. i have never tried for a baby before this.. our 3 that we have were all.. ooopses. but not... iykwim. they were wanted but not necessarily tried for..not necessarily avoided either.
after so long of being No, dp seems so happy about it. i m not sure what has gotten into him. he actually said "want to go make a baby?"
post #215 of 386
OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I GOT A !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This morning I took my temp. I am 14DPO today. My temp went higher today then yesterday...which was odd (see my ).

I thought that was *REALLY* weird since my period was due today if I have a normal 13 day LP. So at 5 am I got up to use a dollar tree test. I peed, then used the test. It looked negative so I went back to bed.

Around 9am, DH woke up and went and showered for work. Then he came in by me and said, "Honey? I don't mean to wake you up but the test on the counter has two lines, and it looks just like the two lines it had when you got pregnant with Addison." I SHOT up and he grabbed the test for me to see.

TOTALLY HAD TWO LINES!!!!!!!!

So I had to pee RIGHT away. I took another dollar store test and it took forever. I took 2 internet cheapie tests and the showed a positive line IMMEDIATELY. Then the dollar store test showed up as well!!!!!!!!! Then I made my DH go get a digi test and it showed up as well!!!!!!!!

AHhHHH!!!!!!

My EDD is Oct. 23rd!!! I can't believe it! I TOTALLY thought this month was out!!

AHH!!

Anyway, just had to share my BFP story!! GOOD LUCK ladies on your BFP's!!!!!!!!

xtara So happy for you! Wishing you a happy and healthy nine months.

Mamafern on getting to try! Good luck!

jennabella , I'm so sorry. That is heartbreaking.

finnegans--good luck at Ikea. That place is fun, but nuts. Yea on the hair cut, too. I think I need to do something like that, I look so tired right now.

AFM, temp took a huge dive this morning. I started spotting last night, and just waiting for full AF now. I'm so sad. I felt really hopeful about this month, and now it looks like my LP might only be 9 days. Last month it was finally at 10. I'm afraid that I might be one of those rare people who actually has to wean to get my fertility back. I really wanted to let DS nurse until he was done, and now I feel so torn about what the right thing to do it. I think there is value in nursing, of course, but having a sibling is so important too, and I don't want them to be too far apart in age. He is already 2.5. I just don't know.

YAAAY!!! xtara2003x Congratulations

This is a great month for BFPs

I am 6dpo so it is dragging but I am going to start testing at 8dpo. I know it will be too early but you never know and I got BFPs with my last 2 really faint on 9dpo. I have high hopes for this month since we had a good BD pattern and I am just feeling the love this month

I just hope we keep these BFPs rolling
post #218 of 386
can you please move me to two week wait? I was shocked yesterday when everything looked good for 0....I didn't expect to actually ovulate on day 14...to textbook! lol!

sorry for the losses and afs arriving and congrats on the bfps! I would make it more personal if i didn't have a wriggly nurser on my lap!
post #219 of 386
Fingers crossed for you, Jen&James, and you, too, yummama!

AFM, please move me to waiting to O. AF arrived as expected. Yuck!
post #220 of 386
Xtara, congrats!!! So happy for you, yay!


Sorry about AF Yuba, ugh.

Ikea was a bust, my DH was too impatient and we ended up getting a desk that doesn't fit the wall of course didn't realize it until after we put it together. Argh. Off to have a glass of wine.
