Yay! New thread! That means we are all one week closer!

I'm still feeling a bit nauseous and feeling tired today, but it could just be circumstantial. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

Being as I don't know my exact O date, this can't really apply to me. BUT it was sure make obsessing easier if I can guess my O date and go from there.

SO- how many DPO can the average person test to see if they are pregnant? How many days after were you able to see it in your previous pregnancies?

Well, we were off to such a strong start with BDing every day or every other day and then the last several nights one of us has been SOOOO tired that we just don't have the energy to BD. And I know we won't tonight because yesterday I noticed my DD had a spider bite on her ankle that was incredibly swollen but just kept an eye on it. We went to our local zoo and she walked around on it all day... we got home and it was even more swollen. I said if it was any worse, I would take her to Urgent Care in the morning because I was just TOO tired last night and most things I've read said if it gets worse after 24 hours, then she should be seen. It would have been 24 hours this morning. Well, we went to bed and she was crying because of pain and itching ALL night long. So in the morning, we woke up and it was covered in blisters and was still as swollen, if not more so. So I took her in to UC and we spent more then half the day there ... and I am about ready to drop writing this. By BD time, I know I'm going to be dead to the world, lol. I'm supposed to O Tuesday/Wednesday so I was REALLY hoping to get one in tonight, tomorrow and Tuesday night just to be on the safe side.... I'm hoping tomorrow and Tuesday will be enough and I don't O earlier then usual... It's a possibility this month since I'm already showing fertile signs. Maybe I'll go take a nap and be able to DTD tonight... but I'm afraid once I go down, I'm going getting back up. And BTW -- my daughter is okay. She is having a really bad allergic reaction to the bite plus it's infected so she's on an abx cream, oral abx and benedryl. I wasn't happy about the oral abx but it's right on her ankle joint so I don't want to take a chance.

Okay, sorry this was so long... I get chatty when I'm tired! LOL

Thank you BarefootScientist, HulaJen and motray36 for looking at my chart in the end of the last thread. You calmed my worries about a shorter luteal phase last cycle. I hope it doesn't happen again but I also need to learn to not worry about that stuff right now. I always thought I was patient! I do always worry about what's going to go wrong - I hope that I lose that or motherhood will be hard!

and thanks again to motray36 for the threadkeeping too. It's a lot of work and much appreciated.

Sorry I have been MIA. Can you move me to waiting to ovulate? Today is cycle day 4. Also this will be our 4th cycle trying. 4 is a sacred number and I think my partner will be arriving home from Burning Man just as I am about to ovulate so it will be great BD timing. I want you, June baby!!!

I was on fertility treatments this time that I got pregnant so we were being monitored by u/s and b/w, but I was instructed by the doctor to dtd on march 22nd 2xs, took my trigger shot to trigger my ovulation on march 23 and then dtd again on march 24th 2xs....ANYWAYS...said all of that to say this lol.....i took my first test (a $tree) at 9dop on april 2nd and it was neg...took another one (FRER) at 8pm on April 3rd, 10 DPO, and it was positive, but was very faint....then at 11 DPO on April 4th I took a CBE Digi and got "PREGNANT". SO I would say at least 10 to 11 dpo is possible but waiting until 14dpo is best. I hope that some of this helps, i know that i'm not the typical person since i was on medication, but it's a little something to go by.

Today is O day I believe, and DH and I snuck in a quickie this morning before he went to work. So everything is out of our hands now. I will know for sure tomorrow if I o'd or not.

I would say 12-14 dpo you could trust the result. If you know your O date of course. With my previous pregnancy I tested + at 15 dpo, but I also didn't test at all until then. I knew I was pregnant by the time I tested. I have seen plenty of people on these boards that get their + at 9 dpo or even sooner too though.

I've been avoiding thinking about TTC and, actually, MDC for awhile...
Sometimes you get so caught up in the temping and charting and waiting and the let down, and the crying... that you just start to lose feeling. So I took off for awhile...

...but...here I am. Trying to decide if I want to toss my hat into the ring...

Regardless, I'm here to support y'all. Here's hoping there are lots of BFPs and sticky, healthy pregnancies with happy, healthy babies at the end.

*hugs*

please move me to waiting to O

AF today. well I knew she was coming!

Thanks for putting me in in our thgouhts and hearts. It ment a lot to me.

I've been doing my best to lurk. I see a few bfp and a lot of wierd pee experiments!

So I'm trying to feel postive and gear up for a new cycle. Anyone look up a possible edd for each new cycle? Seems a way to make af more positive. Anyway will probly be in court for possibly the most stressful week of my working life during my fetile week. Hope this horrible case doesn't ruin this cycle too. I've been working this case for 9 months and it feels like I've given birth to a monster! Still gives me hope I might feel better once it moves to new team.

Any way sorry for all my complaing. Good luck all! hears to lots of bfps for us all!

and thanks for the new thread!

Thanks for the new thread! I am supposed to be in Waiting To Know... (I always forget to ask.)

Everybody think Reproductive Thoughts!
post #17 of 212
I started my last period Aug 10-15th. Not sure which day. We just started trying. We have DTD at least every second day in the past week.
My cervical mucous is either not there or I have a little bit and it is watery. Does anyone know what stage I would be at? I didn't know how to check cervical mucous this month so I didn't know what to look for during O. Maybe it hasn't even happened yet?
If someone does get pregnant, what happens to the mucous? Does it change right away? Just curious.
post #18 of 212
Can I please be moved to waiting to O? I'm in the wrong section. Thanks.
post #19 of 212
Thanks for the new thread. I'm expecting to ovulate any day now... hopefully soon, so that the BD pressure is relaxed!
post #20 of 212
#&%@#*!!!! Another short cycle, 22 days.

I guess I shouldn't have bothered asking to move me to Waiting To Know. Can I please be put back in Waiting To O? Thank you, and sorry for being a yo-yo.
