Wow Gater-mom, there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that you O'd on CD14, all the signs are perfect! Congrats on the awesome BD timing as well

I know most people wait to see if their cycle will work out on their own, but I only have a short window to try (in nursing school) so i wanted to max my chances.

You know, based on your chart I'm not convinced your last LP was 9 days... based on your CM I think there is a good chance you may have O'd on CD 14 or 16 last month which would make your LP 11 or 13 days...

Gator-mom: I definitely think you O'ed on CD14, so now you can relax and wait for your BFP! I also would agree with Sourire that I don't think your last month's LP was 9 days. I'd be guessing CD14 for your ovulation, and that you had a slow/jagged temp rise from there.

Please move me to Waiting to O. Thank you.

We'll see if I can get in as much BDing this cycle? I like the due date better, anyway. Last cycle put the date near my brothers birthday, this one puts it near mine.

Ok, I am pretty sure I ovulated yesterday for sure this time. A really nice temp rise, and I had gobs of EWCM that is gone this morning.

And last night when we BD'd, I didn't have much to.... erm.... clean up after. That is a good sign right? It means all the swimmers made it in?

Gator-Mom, I agree that I think you O'd on CD14 so you can probably relax now. I also agree that there is a good possibility you O'd on 14 or 16 last cycle. Either way I hope you have a good long LP this cycle with a BFP at the end of it.

Good luck at the docs today, Lydia. I hope at the very least they take your concerns seriously. Maybe you just need some progesterone cream or something to get a little bean to stick.

I guess I can go get the flu shot now. And update my STD testing. Sigh.
post #68 of 162
Uhm... color me confused. I just went potty and when I wiped, I had some blood. I'm on CD 10. I have NEVER, EVER O'd this early nor am I showing any signs of Oing so I'm almost 100% sure it's not that.... I have never spotted except when I was pregnant with DD at about 6 weeks... I have no idea what this is... AF was wierd this month. It was really light for the first 2 days but definitely enough that I would call it a period... then on day 3, nothing. Then day 4 there was like an hour of a little bit of blood then nothing... and nothing since then. Now this? I don't know what to think of it... It's still what I would consider spotting but it's kind of heavy spotting, I guess? It's bright red blood... I have no idea what to think. I quit temping after I got AF and usually don't start again until CD10 (but forgot this morning, oops) so no temps to help figure this out either.... Any ideas?

ETA: Just took a test JIC and it is most definitely BFN so I guess we just chalk this up to weird, unexplained bleeding... though I think it might be external-ish, though I don't see anything ... think it might be "inside" but not INSIDE if you know what I mean, LOL.

Can I get some help with my chart please? Here it is.

I had a M/C sometime in late August, and started bleeding on August 31st. I made a note of that in my chart, although I didn't see the point in temping until the bleeding slowed down.

I got my first +OPK on CD17 and another (dark) on CD18.

If I put in a fake temp of 36.50 or above for tomorrow, FF has me ovulating on CD19. Do you think this is correct? My chart is all over the place and is NOT pretty, but I'd really appreciate some insight from you lovely ladies.

Also, do you think (if I did O at CD19) that our BD timing was ok?
post #70 of 162
Hi all, back after holing myself up during AF like its 100BC. I might as well have sat on some leaves in a tent.

I will reiterate what we all already know...AF sucks when TTC.

Anyway....DH still gone on his 3 week work trip, slated to get back right around O time! Fingers crossed for not O-ing until at least October 5. DS is going through an early waking phase, so I havent been able to accurately temp. Today was better...so hopefully I will be able to start tomorrow. Starting OPKs today, too. Ordered FF VIP so I can be even more obsessive.

Thinking positive thoughts - Cheers to our June babies!!

Welcome back and you have been added! I am CD2.

Gator-mom - looks like CD14 to me and great BD timing!!! I hope you can sit back and relax the next couple weeks!

UGGG... I am CD1 also, darn AF. I hope BDing is plentiful this cycle and I am sorry you did not get your BFP. I will move you when I am done with this post.

motray36 - for no O before the 5th!!! I am all for lots of June babies.

AFM - I just moved myself to Waiting For O.... Boo. I was a little teary eyed last night and am feeling disappointed but moving on. Dh is disappointed too, I do not like him being sad, but it is nice to know he shares my feelings and wants a baby as much as I do. I could have sworn this cycle though with the sore bbs and nausea and exhaustion that I was PG! I am not going to analyze or get my hopes up over symptoms again! This really is a good thing though, my doctor and MW both wanted me to wait one cycle and if I get PG this cycle and I O on my usual CD the DD will be my birthday, I could handle that as a gift! DH's birthday is a few days before mine!

I second that... my AF lasts 10-11 days and my LP is only about 8 days so for me AF is worse than the 2ww!!!! In August I had the heaviest day of AF on my wedding day and it was so heavy I bled all over the inside my wedding dress (in spite of multiple VERY inconvenient and embarassing pad and tampon changes with my sisters holding my dress for me) and the cleaners couldn't get the stains out

I was hoping like crazy it was the last AF I would have to endure for a while, but unfortunately I just finished another one, here's wishing none of us here will have another AF for at least 9 months!!!

Amen to that! I'm just on the verge of starting what I hope will be my last AF for a long while.

Sleepingbeauty - CONGRATS on the full-time job!

Gator-mom - I agree that you O'ed on CD14, and it looks like you had fantastic timing!!!

SML27 - I took a look at your chart, and honestly I can't feel when you've ovulated, or if you have ovulated yet. You might be having a slow-rise, though, instead of a sudden peak. I hope you get crosshairs on FF very soon, though!

Abbykins - It is possible to O on the same day of the OPK, especially if you are just catching the very end of the surge. That's one reason I try to test twice a day around the time I think I'll O, just to make sure I catch it. As for CD11 being too early, I don't think when you O in the cycle matters as much as having a good luteal phase. Good luck to you, and I hope you caught the eggie!

I also had alot of spotting...I think the most I've ever had pre-o. Then this morning I had a temp jump. I'm really hoping it's the new prenatals I'm taking this cycle. My cycle lengths tend to vary.

My question is, could I be one of those that O on the day of a positive opk? Because that didn't really give me the day or 2 I was expecting. Is cd 11 too early to ovulate for a good chance of pregnancy?
a cd11 O is when i conceived my very healthy son! And there are def some people that O on the day of pos OPK - it depends on when you take the test - could be that you caught the tail end of the surge.

First, I am sorry for your loss.
I don't think cd19 is correct. I think FF is just guessing with the information that it has. I think yesterday or today seems a more likely O date (presuming your temps go up from here) based on CM, temps and the OPK. But I am not sure with the m/c how accurate the OPK would be at this point. It could just be your body returning to normal so don't be discouraged if your temps don't go up. In any event, all the BDing seems timed great regardless of O date!

Thanks. I used ICs earlier this year, rarely New Choice. So I'm used to a line that says, "OMG! IT'S POSITIVE!" I forgot that sometimes New Choice can't commit.

Wonderful news! Congratulations!

afm Can you please add me to waiting to know. I am unsure of my chances this month. I may have gotten a positive OPK on Friday or Saturday. We only BD'd on Sunday. I was very crampy yesterday and a little crampy today. Who knows? This is what I get for "stickin' it to da man" and not temping.

Here is my chart http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/287c3a
post #78 of 162
SML - I'm not too sure you O'd yet either. I don't use OPK's but I use the Ovacue monitor. I get peaks around CD 14 (which was my avg O day pre-mc) all the way until CD19 or so until I actually do O. So I wonder if your body is doing something like mine - picking the egg then something happens and you don't O. I would keep BDing until FF gives you crosshairs.


AFM - I had a really nice temp jump this morning that maybe could turn into a triphasic chart. But I sure do feel like AF is coming. I wiped this morning and found just a tint of pink, which is unusual because I don't spot pre-AF. And I have been kinda crampy today too.
post #79 of 162
GolfAddict - I just took a look at your chart, and it looks FANTASTIC! Maybe the tint of pink is just some late implantation??
post #80 of 162
Sorry to everyone for not responding to personals. I'm not at home, and haven't been since Friday. So, it is difficult to keep up with all of you.

Two things stood out...

SleepingBeauty... Woohoo! I want an OH with a job like that!

Sarah2881... I should check the actual due date for this new cycle, and see just how close it comes to my birthday.
