Sure, it is only cycle 9, but the length doesn't matter, I remember the first cycles being more painful than it is now, doesn't matter how long you've been trying, it is your journey.

i love that!
That's so beautiful. It makes me feel better for having high hopes this cycle.

Hey all! I've been so busy this weekend! It was my DD's 8th birthday yesterday and we have been GO GO GO...phew. No more for this week...my patootie is stayin home! I got GOBS of EWCM today and am thinking that I will O either tomorrow or mon. We BD'd yesterday...and hopefully tonight...so I hope and pray that we can make a bebe! I kept seeing pg ladies at the mall today...I saw a lady that looked like she was going to pop(I'm assuming with twins bc she was HUGE), and lady that was just now showing and a lady that was about 6 months...i kinda went back in my head with DS when I was at those stages. About 85% of me was EXCITED to be pg again and the other part was like..eeesh...LOL! But it is SO well worth it! I keep trying to picture what my life will be like with 3+kids! EEEEK! SO excited! I'm hopeful this cycle!

Yeah, so AF started last night and it was baaad...way worse than it has been in a very long time. I'm guessing that I either had a really early loss or my LP randomly lengthened by 4 days. I'm just a bit down b/c I feel cheated that I was 4 days over my normal LP and nothing to show for it. Hopefully my LP stays longer though!
The first time I had what I thought was a chemical, I consoled myself with the knowledge that it meant I CAN get pregnant! Perhaps, it will help if you can think of it that way, too? Hang in there!

My best friend growing up was born on her mother's birthday. She had a mc previously so I'm sure it was EXTRA sweet for her (It's only my friend and her younger brother). Best present EVER!

(ps - sis, if you're reading, if you like it we can do rock paper scissor. there were a few) Anyway, it has three medium sized garnets, and I thought it was super pretty. I got home and suddenly had an inspiration....HEY, isn't the garnet the JANUARY birthstone?! I looked it up: it IS! If this cycle works, I'll be due in early January...and there are three garnets.

I'm feeling just totally achy and hot, btw. Earlier I was super cold. I may take tylenol if it gets worse, and I'll definitely call the RE if it's still here tomorrow. Thanks for asking.
You're funny. It's yours (even if you're not having triplets in January )--I never wear any rings other than the wedding band anyway. Grandmother's mother, or Grandfathers? Pretty neat. I'm sorry you're feeling sick (DURING VACATION!)...please call the RE for me. And my midwife says tylenol only during pregnancy, never advil or asprin. Just fyi, since you're having triplets.

yes, avoid ibuprofen and aspirin in pregnancy! even if you dont know you are pregnant... (unless you have a clotting disorder in which case aspirin can be beneficial.)

and only take tylenol when you really need it (but if you are sick and achey you really need it!)

and avoid benedryl until after the first trimester is over (I am unfortunately having to take it nightly now to sleep. says the lady who is up an hour past her bedtime time to go take it)

Someone asked why I have an open circle on my temp on ff on my chart...

I don't know!? What does that mean? lol.

This is my first chart and I don't have any idea why the circle would not be filled in...

Can someone look and explain it to me?

did you take that temp at a different time, holly?
post #70 of 381
I really love having a paid account at FF... I just spent a good ten minutes playing with the pregnancy signs estimator. It gave me a 54% chance! ha! That's the best I've ever gotten. I mean, I'm pretty sure I'll wake up to AF tomorrow morning but it still makes me feel good tonight

Karma, I love that quote from Hesperia... thanks for sharing!

it's not bad it's just FFs way of saying that temp may not be as reliable as one you take at a normal time. It won't do anything different to the chart in most cases but rather allows ff to know to ignore that temp if it were to throw your chart off if it didn't.

Hey, don't forget, Ovulation occurs 12-36 hours after that first positive OPK... So, to cover yourself best, you should BD tomorrow as well, and I would toss in the next day, because the egg lives for up to 24 hours. (I sure talk about sex a lot on this site )

Hey ladies. Haven't posted in a while. DH still off the TTC train, but I always hope for an oops! LOL
Just a question about early spotting. I usually have around a 14 sometimes even 15 day LP. I have had as little as 12 but not as common. But never spotting before 12dpo. Today at 11dpo I had the smallest, bright spotting (it was almost orange?). I would fully expect this to be an early AF month given that - but the spotting is gone, even after DTD (usually if I have spotting, DTD brings on AF or at least heavier spotting). No cervical "trauma" beforehand that would cause it.
I know I could totally still wake up with AF, but wanted to know if it is possible to have implantation spotting a) this late? And b) if I have never had it with previous pregnancies? I haven't really had any of the usual pre-AF symptoms so this was a shocker to see the potential for her to show up early.

Yeah... put me down under WTF is going on?? lol

hulajenn- i think that's a little late for implantation, but maybe it's old blood- like 9 dpo wouldnt be toooo late, maaaybe even 10? i think it's most often around 6-8 dpo, sometimes 5.

tkgrl- do you have a chart link?

What's up with my cervix?

It's still low, but it's quite open. FF said that women who have given birth may always have a slightly open cervix, but it was closed (and low) just 2 days ago. Weird. Still no fertile CM.

Ideas?
post #80 of 381
Dropping in.... my temps are WAY down this morning, so I imagine AF will be here today or tomorrow. Looks like we'll be moving on to cycle 4.
