Thanks. It seems to be not so much of an issue of conceiving, as of staying pregnant. The same thing happened last cycle when we weren't actively trying, so we're actually planning to avoid for a couple of months in order to give my body and both our emotions a rest.

Hi guys! So our family is going to be moving over this next month and a half Can someone take over the thread for a bit? I'd be more than happy to keep it going after, but I won't be able to update very often here over the next month.

Sweet Bee: I'm 12DPO.

I broke down and tested last night. I know it's not FMU but I think it would have shown BFP by now if I was based on previous pregnancies.

Mother Cake: I'm so sorry that you had an early m/c. That is too hard to go through.

I think I will take a break too. See you in a month or two.

Weekend Check-In

Name: Hesperia
Date: 5/22
Where are you in your cycle: Cycle day 29. Not spotting yet. Usually my cycles are around 32 days in length. (I'm probably 12dpo)

Symptoms if they apply: Some mild cramping, very mild nausea this cycle where normally it is more intense. I had a very stabby/hot nipple last week, and it has gone away.

When are you thinking of testing: Oh, I'd like to test right this second. I'm not anxious or anything. Just today I am home alone and know I have one in the house. I'm pretty sure I am NOT pregnant.

Thoughts: Nothing much. Just hanging around. I had my crying freak out a few days ago, which always tells me AF is coming

Appointments: Nothing
Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc: I did actually start a few new things this cycle. B6 and wild yam cream (for the progesterone, even though after doing some research apparently it doesn't work).

Do you have any stress triggers: Nope!

What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle: Not charting is helping, and this is the start of me 'not trying'. Which is still hit or miss, as I didn't really talk to my husband about it, and he took 'not trying' as more than what I took it as, haha. Poor guy. I just mean not tryingtrying to relax.

Partners feelings if applicable: Kind of the same as above. He thought we weren't charting, and I called it not trying. So he was a little taken aback. He is just so so ready.

Weekend Check-In

Name: Sweet.Bee

Date: 22 May 2010

Where are you in your cycle: CD11

Symptoms if they apply: I may be ovulating in a few days. At least my CM is watery.

When are you thinking of testing: 15DPO, I guess, whenever that will be.

Thoughts: I've had all this weird spotting this cycle. Flow CD1-5, then 1 day of spotting, then 2 days of sticky + spotting (but not every time I checked), then 2 days of watery (no spotting) so I thought it was over... now today watery + occasional spotting (again, not every time I check). Weird. Very weird. Maybe it's all the TTC sex irrigating my cervix?

Appointments: None.

Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc: Nothing new.

Do you have any stress triggers: The weird spotting has me a bit stressed, but then I try not to stress because it could delay ovulation. Sigh.

What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle: Just trying to keep busy.

Partners feelings if applicable: Well, we are having sex once a day, so...I guess he's happy. Oh, and the new lingerie was a hit.

Plans for this weekend: It's a 3-day weekend for us! We did some gardening today. We may visit the nearby animal park tomorrow or Monday.

Weekend Check-In

Name: MoOnFiReGlOw
Date: 5/23
Where are you in your cycle: cd4

Symptoms if they apply: Nope! Just a bit crampy
When are you thinking of testing: Probably not until I'm 15dpo or so since I've never made it that far
Thoughts: **sigh** I've been everything from determined to continue ttc to giving up. I think once we move and I can go see the RE in August I will be happier. I'm going to make my dh get an SA this week though, no excuses. I know if it turns out bad there is nothing we can do till his back is healed, but I'd rather know that and not get my hopes up every month than go through this roller coaster.
Appointments: Dh is *hopefully* going to get an SA on Wed. or so. We have to convince his PCP to order one, but I'm done with getting run in circles and I am not going to leave till we get one!
Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc: nope!
Do you have any stress triggers: Nope, not really. Hubby and kids have helped get the house back in order. Starting to stress a bit about the move, but I'm so excited to get back 'home' that it isn't too bad yet. I'm sure I will be changing my tune in a few weeks
What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle: Knitting
Partners feelings if applicable: He's chill like always. He saw how upset I got at the end of this cycle and said he would get the SA, I'm hoping he follows through and doesn't chicken out like he did last time.
Plans for this weekend: Cleaning and knitting!

Weekend Check-In

Name: Waiting4SJ
Date: 5/26
Where are you in your cycle: CD 9

Symptoms if they apply: Nada.

When are you thinking of testing: Not anytime soon.

Thoughts: So at peace with our choice. We've decided to just let it "happen". No temps, no ovulation tests, nothing. The only thing I'll keep track of is my CD so I know if I miss AF.

Appointments: Nothing

Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc:

Do you have any stress triggers: Nada.

What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle: Not in a hurry...

Partners feelings if applicable: He's excited that "trying" just means having sex for the most part.

Nice! That is a good idea. I think we may move to that here soon. I got rid of my FertilityFriend account, just keeping track of my temps on paper so I know if/when I O and going from there, but with how busy things are going to be this summer we may just do the same as you guys and let things happen as they may.

no problem hopefully it will prompt me to do the weekend check-in finally.
post #95 of 104
Hey it's Friday, hope it's not too early for the weekend check-in!


Name:echospiritwarrior
Date:28 May
Where are you in your cycle: right around O (yesterday or today to the best of my knowledge) I'll know in a few days time when my temps reflect the shift
Symptoms if they apply:I am super grouper excited as this is the first time DH and I have purposely TTC
When are you thinking of testing: I'm going to wait until 10dpo which unfortunately doesn't look like it'll be until June 7th, I don't know what I will do until then!!!!
Thoughts:besides being beside myself in excitement I am trying to think boy thoughts (picturing the fast swimmers making it right now) of course we will love and cherish any healthy baby that comes our way.
Appointments:none, but my husband is painting our midwife's office so he's been there for two weeks he can't wait for me to see it. Hopefully soon!
Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc:just thinking boy thoughts and picturing the swimmers making it to that egg!
Do you have any stress triggers:my older children Despite my love for them but they have been more than a handful as of late making me wonder if this TTC is actually a good idea at all. The oldest turns five tomorrow so I wonder if some of it is a little of that pre-birthday excitement I seem to have noticed starting a few weeks before her birthday year after year- drives me insane... is it a planetary alignment thingie???
What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle:I've been on a housework kick, doing the same kind of cleaning that I do when I'm pregnant, almost like pre-nesting the house (except for the girls room ) has been looking great!
Partners feelings if applicable:I think he is really excited too, as I said he's excited for me see our MW's office that he's been working on. He said that she was excited to see our girls too.
Plans for this weekend:It's a busy one! Tomorrow my oldest turns five, so my mother will be coming from out of town this afternoon to help me get ready. I still have food to buy, cupcakes to bake, a homemade pinata to stuff... Then Sunday we have a wedding to go to, they are some super sweet friends and I am really excited for them- it should be beautiful!

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Weekend Check-In!

Name: Sweet.Bee
Date: 29 May 2010
Where are you in your cycle: CD18
Symptoms if they apply: Fertile CM for the last 10 days.
When are you thinking of testing: A long time from now.
Thoughts: I want to ovulate! This has been a very long fertile time, and we are worn out. I ovulated last cycle on CD18 (but with only 4 days of fertile CM), so I hope my temperature will finally be up tomorrow. If it isn't, I might have to pick another fight with my thermometer.
Appointments: With the ovulation fairy, I hope.
Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc: Aaaaa-uuummm. Aaaa-uummmm. No, not really.
Do you have any stress triggers: Hmm, let me think... there must be something...oh, yeah, my body's wishy-washy attitude toward ovulation.
What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle: Still playing a video game for a bit at night. I like taking out my frustration on monsters.
Partners feelings if applicable: Worn out, poor guy.
Plans for this weekend: Nothing special. Our little one's mini play sofa arrived finally, and we picked it up.

I know May is almost over, but I was wondering if I can join. I am at cd 32 and I'm 11 or 12 dpo. I took a $tree test this morning and I might have imagined a shadow of a line. Trying not to run out and buy a frer. Here is my chart, if anyone cares. Can a newbie do a weekend check in?

Weekend Check-In!

Name: sarahkristin
Date: May 29th
Where are you in your cycle: CD32, 11/12 DPO
Symptoms if they apply: Mild cramps, probably AF, blehhhh
When are you thinking of testing: Tomorrow morning
Thoughts: I was SURE that I was pregnant at 6 DPO and now I am almost sure I am not. I hate ttc sometimes!
Appointments: With a FRER tomorrow morning
Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc: Nope, I'm fairly med free, other than the prenatals.
Do you have any stress triggers: New kitten is driving me up the wall! DD not sleeping well is making me tired. And trying not to stress about maybe or maybe not being preggo.
What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle: Reminding myself that it is already decided and me stressing over it is not going to make it positive.
Partners feelings if applicable: Excited and anxious to "try again" or "practice" lol
Plans for this weekend: Relax, take a frer

Weekend Check-In

Name: MoOnFiReGlOw
Date: 5/29
Where are you in your cycle: cd10

Symptoms if they apply: Nope!
When are you thinking of testing: Still planning on waiting till 15dpo
Thoughts: Not really much. I'm being really passive this cycle and just letting things happen. We are moving in a few weeks around when I'm supposed to O so I'm not really counting on this month being the month!
Appointments:Dh chickened out on the freaking SA AGAIN! He is so scared of finding out his 'boys' aren't up to the task
Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc: nope!
Do you have any stress triggers: Our moving date is creeping closer and closer and I'm starting to feel the pressure and stress of a move.
What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle: Knitting
Partners feelings if applicable: He is being a wuss about the SA. I'm trying to back off b/c apparently it is really important for him to not find out that there is something wrong with his swimmers. I've tried to explain that it's not really fair for me to think we have a chance each month when we don't right now either. He is on meds that are known to cause problems with swimmers, I just need to know if I need to start testing or not.
Plans for this weekend: Cleaning and knitting yet again!

Same thing here too. I have 3 young boys and they drive me insane sometimes! My hubby just looks at me and says 'and you want another??!' lol!

Have fun! I hope the b-day party goes well

Yeah, mine has been pretty messed up too. Two cycles ago I O'd on cd15! Last cycle cd 22 or so. It's hard to plan and time bd'ing when you have a week and a half window that O could happen in!
