I'd rather spend the next week welcoming a baby that isn't there than doubting one that is!
Yep, that was me... And, thank you.

Just wanted to say I love this thread. I know I don't always reply to everyone. I don't always know what to say and I don't know much about a lot of what is discussed on here. Thank you to everyone who replies to my crazy questions.

I'm just happy right now. My friends and my SO are just making me feel so loved today I thought i'd spread some love here!

Sweetest: Thanks! I hope it's my month, too... I hope it's ALL our months, and we can rush in and flood the December DDC with the last new babies of the year!

Another fellow Aquarian!? (or are you a late Jan babe?)

Thanks for thinking of me, Miriam. It's been a tough month, but we made his birthday on the 1st very special with a balloon release and DH and I got tattoos (I got William's handprint over my heart). It will be a lovely memory forever... although I so wish I had my little man and not just memories...
I know you weren't asking me, but I'm a Capricorn... very early January

I think that tattoo idea is very sweet. I'm glad you're hanging in there, Mama.

CLH - yea for Oing!!

Finn - You have been missed! Are you just "not preventing" or are you completely out of the TTC game?

Stevi - That was a really spectacular piece of advice. I'm writing that one down for future reference!

Jennifer - When is AF due? Hope to see you in a DDC soon!!

Miriam - Fingers crossed for you!!

Moon and Tulpen - So sorry AF found you!!

MI Dawn - I can't imagine how you must be feeling right now, so instead I"m sending

Sweestst - if you go on Ebay, you can find digital OPKs for much cheaper than in stores. I never had the patience to deal with lines; I loved that digitals gave me a definite answer. Totally worth the money IMO.

Karma - That Discovery Channel special on sperm talked about estrous. They said that humans still experience this. (Makes sense to me; every other animal does). Take advantage of it and have some fun! Even if it doesn't end with a BFP, it'll relax you!! But your chances look good - that's a pretty chart you've got there!

Morning ladies- I got a nice high temp this morning, confirming O yesterday!! I wont get crosshairs for a few days but im 99% sure im 1dpo!! I hope we bd enough.
I took my DS to cross country training this morning and ran into a friend who i havent seen for about a month and she was like 'are you pregnant yet?' my response was 'not that I know of!'. There was avery pregnant mum there too with four other kids, i didnt think it would be appropriate to go and rub up against her to get some baby dust, but man was I tempted!!!
Now i want to get motivated to go shopping, but I really just feel like curling up in bed with a book!!

Hi. I had my official loss on Sunday and passed mostly everything. I'm just bleeding a little now. So...when do I start temping and updating my chart?

I'm glad that you have that behind you, so that you can start healing your heart and body. You could start temping as soon as you feel up to it, I think. You temps may take a while to fall, depending on how quickly the hcg leaves your body. After that, you'll probably ovulate at your regular time, though it could be early or late I guess. I kind of counted the day my temps dropped as day 1. Thinking of you, hon! I'm sorry you had to go through this.

I'm thinking around the 2nd or so...I had a MC March 7th and I wasn't sure if it messed up my cycle or not...so I'm not exactly sure when I should start. Last cycle I started on april 4th...so I'm going off of the 28/29 day cycles that I usually have. But knowing me as well as I do...I will be testing around the 10 day mark...I got my last BFP around then. So I guess maybe the 28th I will start testing.

So I guess I should ask...CAN YOU PLEASE MOVE ME TO WAITING TO KNOW? I'm thinking that I O'ed yesterday... had a nice glob of EWCM and today nothing other than a little tiny bit of CM, but nothing to write home about. IF we get pg...I will have an EDD of Jan 9... I was hoping that I could have an EDD of 1/11/11...how cool! But I'm sure I wont go late.

karmab- thank you. Yes I have a chart link. Hang on while I figure it out, LOL.

My Ovulation Chart

Did it!!

Ladies looks like I get to be cycle buddies with a few of you!

momma cop kaz, you said you thought you O'd yesterday as well, yes?

jenniferdurham- and you are only a day or two ahead of me, yes? cool we can test together. BTW I am really sorry for your loss.

kingsdaughter- nice to see you on here. I wish you luck and that temp goes back up.

AM Sorry for the skimpy personals: there are so many posters here that I can't do all personals at once. i know I saw more people I wanted to say hi and respond to. Well I will do my best in the coming days but for now, slowly. I hope in a day or so I can move to waiting to know! But for now I got my rise today what seems like the 1dpo spike, so holding out to make sure... crappy sleep due to DS nursing a lot with a cold... poor baby.

Oh and FF thinks I am 4dpo at the moment but that will change if I get a couple more high temps now. All other signs point to an O for yesterday.

Yay! That's awesome! Thank you Tara...I got a little teary eyed...I thought I was over it and all good. Guess I'll always have a sore spot when someone speaks of it. I can't wait to be in the DDC with you! I have always remembered your name and tried to keep up with you! That'll be fun! to you!
post #111 of 381
jennifer- aw, hugs to you, hon. Now I'm a little teary as well. How sweet you remember me; I remember you as well. I don't blame you at all for not being 'over it' so quick. I had a mc 14 years ago and I still feel sad about it sometimes! These losses are real. It's okay to feel grief over it. Acknowledgement is the first step toward healing.

Blessings to you on your healing journey and ttc. and I hope you get your rainbow baby soon.

Divine - Thanks for the tip about the OPKs, I'm tempted to order some OPKs just to tempt the fates. If I order more OPKs I'm bound to be PG this month, right (I already filled my Rx for clomid next month using the same logic)

Stevi I thought it was you! Thanks for giving me permission to be joyfully expectant during my TWW!

AFMI know you ladies will understand (my DH thinks I'm crazy). I read Miriam's post about flooding the Dec DDC and started getting curious about my EDD this month. I thought my due date would be in Jan and was curious if I was just going to make the cut off for 2010. Then before I had a chance to Google "Due date Calendar" I saw Jennifer's post about wishing for a 1/11/11 due date and I was like "darn, that would be cool but I O'd way too early".

So I went and found a few due date sites and entered in my LMP which is never accurate because I O early and my cycle is short. Then I found a site that uses Conception date, and since I temp I used my O date as my conception date... up popped the EDD of 1/1/11. Of course I then had to find 2 dozen other calculators based on conception to confirm this date. Holy Cow! I am so excited (remember I'm allowing myself to get excited this month!) So I miss 2010 but I get a cool due date

So between the due date and my strangely stable chart, I'm starting to think this may be the month!

tara- agree with you- i dont know how ff comes up with these coverlines sometimes- they follow no rules! jeesh. i added your chart- do you want me to move you?

same for you mumma- should i move you? i dont like to move folks to the 2ww unless they ask, i know some are a little superstitious before crosshairs. just let me know.

MrsMike - I'm sorry. I started temping about 10 days after my loss I think. I also took a cheapie HPT every day starting about that time until they went negative. Oddly I ovulated the first time even though I could still see a shadow of a + on the HPT. if you look at my chart and can see my Feb cycle, that is the one. I was 12.5 weeks along.

Divine - I'm still around. I'm just laying low this month and trying not to obsess. It's just not healthy for me.

AFM - I got my + OPKs this evening. I always seem to have +s for 36 hours, so I'm guessing I might not O for another day or two? I'm Cd14 and I used to O on cd14 back in the day. I would be pysched if my temp jumped tomorrow morning but I know it won't, timing would have been good for once.

Good luck to everyone in the 2ww.

Looks like I will be testing tomorrow, instead of Wednesday. We're having a bit of a bank situation ... there is a problem with our account and on hold status. The bank say it'll take a couple days to get it worked out. I hadn't yet bought the FRER's I was planning on taking this week, so I'm planning on just going to the doctor's office tomorrow and taking a pregnancy test.

So what site is it? I wanna see mine! LOL!

Sweetest77- That would make a cool due date!! I also agree with buying stuff!! I just bought a whole lot of clothes today as its starting to get colder here. I remember buying a whole new wardrobe a few years back, after being told we would never be pregnant, well unbeknown to me I was already pregnant when buying them!! hoping this theory works for me this month and if not i just have some nice new clothes.

brunetta- Goodluck testing fx

FM-Happy bding

Well DH came home for lunch and had just been to the gym, so we wound up dtd!! Wahoo, come on egg, do your job!

MrsMike -

sweetest77 - I was tempted to buy some more OPKs this cycle, but I didnt want to temp fate, I just thought if I get them then Il have bound to get AF, so Im waiting Oh and a Due date of 1/1/11 is pretty cool Mine be *if* it happens 7/1/11 4 days after my bday

finnegansmom - Good luck - I hope your temp does jump!

•Adorkable• -

AFM - The cover line on my chart is 98.14 but today i took my temp and it was 98.04 ? is that normal that its below my coverline, I thought it would be higher then that as I thought the temps would have to go up up up!
post #120 of 381
MrsMike--

CLH_X3--I'd say it would be the other way around. If you buy OPKs then you'd get a BFP just because they would then be useless and you would have wasted your money. That's usually how it happens for me with most things. lol

Me--Dotted cross-hairs for me. I'm 3dpo. I really don't believe that. I'm sure my temp tomorrow will void it. Besides, we haven't DTD for 7 days. There isn't even a snowball's chance. Nothing to worry about! (But I will say that my nipples have been killing me for the past week. Ouch! But that's happened before too.)
