OMG look at how many May BFPS we had and then compare it to June.... so sad! :-( ok ladies we all need to STEP IT UP in July!! haha. I'm halfway through the TWW, 7dpo here. tested this morning (even though I swore I'd wait until 10dpo) and of course, BFN. BUT... I'm NOT testing again until Saturday (10dpo) and will hopefully get a + then!! I normally have a 12-14 day LP so it's not that unreasonable to get a BFP by then I think, right?...right?... haha. I really think this is my cycle so I'm hoping that these are all just good signs that I'm pregnant. Anyway, hope you ladies enjoy your last day of June and tomorrow marks the start of an AWESOME month of BFPs!! (let's blow WAY past May's list!)

EricaRN, I was looking over the BFP lists and thought the exact same thing. Too bad you didn't get your + test today, so you could make the June list longer. That's ok. You can start off our July list after testing this weekend.

I have funky chart stuff this month, mostly because my temps are pretty low, my post O temps anyway, don't know what the deal is with that but I did have a positive OPK so that is good I think? I sure hope that this is the month and at the same time am trying not to obsess,haha. I think I am 5 DPO, I have an 11 day luteal phase so we shall see.

I would like to join the TTC thread now!

I just came off BC about two weeks ago, but we're going for it. My body feels different already, so I'm taking that as a sign that my hormones are getting back to their natural state pretty quickly, which is good, because people keep telling me it will take me three months to be normal again and I wasn't too excited about that. But I figure if people get pregnant all the time while on BC, then that can't be totally true for everyone. So I'm going to be positive and believe that my body is taking over where the meds left off.

My midwife said it only takes a month to get back to normal after BC but I am sure everyone's body is different.

Hey guys, long time since I've posted.. going to O in a couple days, our fifth cycle trying. I don't have any high hopes or anything, I guess I kind of know better by now.

Good luck everyone!

I finished my BC in July and got pregnant in August!

AFM - I am totally bummed. I had spotting today and a temp drop, so AF is definitely making an appearance. I just don't think I can do any more months of charting, acupuncture, etc. It's too stressful. I start my last class for my RN program on Tuesday and finish the program in August, so maybe after I pass the exam to get my license I'll be ready to continue charting. I think I wanna just "sit out" for July.

Welcome!! I am so glad that you would like to join our group. I would love to add your name to the list but need to know if you are TTC #1 #2 #3 ect. And if there is any other information like your chart or your age that you would like to add as well. If you already have kiddo's and you let me know if they are boys or girls I can put a little baby next to your name. Just give as little or as much info as youl like! Again welcome and we love bringing in new people to our family.

I JUST went off BC 2 months ago, & we also started TTC #1 the same month I went off. The hardest part for me has been to re-learn what "normal" is for my body. I wasn't prepared for my cycle and symptoms of O & AF to change. I wish you the best of luck!

Just wanted to pop in and to all those who were here when I was posting a few months back. I was hoping all the names would be NEW, NEW, NEW! :/

wow only one bfp last month! I'm blowing some baby dust everybodies way.

post #16 of 164
Stark white BFN this morning.... BFFFFFFFFN. :-( arrrghh. I shouldn't have gotten my hopes up yesterday when I thought I saw a faint line... I'm not out until I'm out I know. But at 10DPO I was hoping for at least a LITTLE something. I never get BFPs until waaayyy late though b/c my hcg levels are always dangerously low in the beginning. And honestly, I always have a m/c the cycle before getting pregnant... guess I need a boost before a pregnancy will for sure stick. I'm hoping that doesn't happen this time. Needless to say when I do get my BFP I will not be taking anything for granted.... *sigh* slightly discouraged today. Hope everyone else is having a good 4th of July weekend. MrsD08- thanks for checking in on us. Wish I wasn't here when you came back though. lol. Anda yea, slow month last month... just one BFP. as opposed to like 10 the month before! I'm hoping it picks back up this time. :-)

Wow you ladies sure are being quiet this month. I think everyone is having a month like me. No more stressing for me and I have even quit my OPK's because last month I spent $40 on cheapies. I went through more than 40 OPK's and never ovulated. I have an appointment with a specialist at the end of this month so maybe then I will use OPK's again and get the ball rolling.

hey ladies! 11DPO here and I think I got the faintest of faint lines again this morning. Was able to sneak the camera this time before DH saw me. What do you think? It doesn't show up on camera as well as it does in real life, but I'm hoping someone sees it... :-) Be honest though, Dont want to get hopes up anymore if it's all in my head. lol. Here are the links:

My hubby and i squinted at them for a while but we dont see anything. Do you have a tripod and a lamp you can use to take another pic?
post #20 of 164
ZoeJane'sMommy, good luck at the appointment!

EricaRN, I don't see anything, though I'm really bad at seeing lines. But if you saw something in person, I'd try another test tomorrow. Sometimes tests don't photograph well. We have a pro camera and macro lens, and my OPKs still don't look as dark in the photos as they do in person. So for you!

***
CD18 and today's OPK was still negative. I guess I will ovulate this week, but who knows (last cycle it was CD22, the one before CD18). I have a nice LP around 13-14 days, but ovulate kind of late and have hardly any EWCM (but am swimming in "watery" CM). Is this normal?
