That sounds right. I think I'm going to leave the temp in my chart for now just so it's recorded. But it has an open circle, so I don't think it should affect my FF data.

Jessica~ Yah on getting an appointment, I'd try and push for a blood test.

This cycle is so weird. Usually I O around cd 16-18. But it looks like I may have O'd. According to my temp I'd say cd14. According to my cm, I'd say cd12. This morning I almost thought I had EWCM. But, after looking at it, I think it was sperm. It was more whitish. It was stretchy, but seemed to get less stretchy the more I messed with it. Doesn't that seem more like sperm? Sorry - TMI!!

Anyways, not sure what to think right now. Here's my chart:

swimming-duck~ I'd probably go with cd13 or 14 for O date.

Daisy - Thinking of you at your dr appt this morning. FXed urine is pos and they send out the blood for a beta for you.

AFM - My temp is still up so I'm pretty much thinking I'm 2dpo. I hate being aware of DPO count before FF calls it! It makes it that much longer, lol. I'm trying to find something to do with myself so I can stop obsessing -- cleaning the house only takes my mind off so much! I thought about going clothes shopping, but then I keep thinking hopefully I won't need those clothes much longer! And I don't want to waste $$.

What do you guys think of this? As I was falling asleep last night, I realized all my maternity clothes are packed away in the back of the attic. I would need to ask DH to get them for me. Is that a cute way of letting him know I'm pg? (If I am?) If when he gets home from work, tell him I need a favor -- "Can you pull down the container with my maternity clothes? Looks like I'm going to need to wash them.."



I think it might work. Now come on eggo! Lets get preggo!

Daisy420 Good luck at the doctors. I hope you get a BFP.

AFM I am fairly certain that I O'd yesterday based on CM, but am waiting on my temps to go up. My temp went up a little this morning, but not as much as I would like. I wish I had saved my charts from before I was pregnant with DD to compare to. As I recall my temp usually went above the coverline 2 days after my most fertile CM, but without having them I can't really confirm this. I am hoping that I did O because we had excellent timing, but in the past 2 cycles Oing has faked me out--where I thought I probably O'd but then I actually O about 4-5 days later. So we will see. I just told my DP to be prepared mentally and physically (he thought this was funny) in case I still haven't O'd and do . Gotta go DD is messing with our old dog.

I agree swimmingduck; looks like cd 13 or 14 for O day, but I'd wait a few days to verify it with your temps.

Thanks for wishing me luck girls...I go in at 2 pm today . I think it will make it official for DH. I have started feeling some definate pg sxs now! My areolas are all but purple, and I now have these dark blue veins on my belly ! I have actually never gone to a doc for a pg test....so this will be a 1st for me. With dd, I didn't go in for any prenatal until I was 13 wks!

Oh, here's the 12 dpo dollar store pic btw.

Not sure why I'm sooo paranoid this time around...I guess its normal, but I'm usually much more laid back about things....

Wendlynn~!!!!!! KUP!!!

Baby_Cakes~I think that's a very cute idea I wasn't very creative.....he was watching the kids out the window playing and said "look at those crazy kids lol" (as they were playing on our "play tree") and I said, so are you ready for another? I like urs much better LOL

earthmama~That has happened to me....its a bummer . Hoping its a real O this time and not delayed :fingerx. Just keep up that bd e/o day so u don't miss it

I love it! That's a great idea!

Everyone else - I'm at work and scatterbrained today so I can't organize my thoughts well enough to reply to everyone I want to... So... and lots of 's all around!!!


AFM - I'm on 9 dpo and any spotting I'm having is the "if anyone else was looking at this they wouldn't see a thing" variety...so yay for that! My temp is still nice and high so I just might get a 10 day LP. Finally! And just in time too.

Cute idea!!

AFM: FF says I O'd. I don't believe it. I think my temps are just rising in general. I never had a completely high, open cervix. And my cm isn't completely dried up. I wish it were the case, but I just don't think it is.

jessica~ on the darker dollar tree.


Wendlynn~


post #73 of 370
Wendylynn: Yay!!!!!!

Wow -so many of us in the 2 WW at the same time!! I hope we get lots and lots of BFPs around here in the next couple weeks.

AFM: 6 dpo. Still nothing to report. Hoping my body can hang on a couple more days so I can get my progesterone test on Thursday before AF shows her face. I haven't been temping the last few days. I think it is helping take some of the stress away. I temped long enough to confirm O and maybe I'll start again in a couple days - or maybe not.

LOVE this idea!!! Now I feel like maybe I want to come up with some sort of cute idea...lol!

What do you all think of this?

Hi ladies,
I've been trying to find relative info on my situation but couldn't find any that answers my question.
I don't know if I'm still in fertile window or not (or if/when I "O" ed). My LO is 19 mo, still nursing, No PPAF yet but I saw EWCM last Wednesday for the first time so we dtd, also on Thursday dtd. (Funny thing is we've never decided to do this like waiting for my ovulation to TTC, once I saw ewcm, I felt like we can do dtd since we haven't done it for awhile). I've been having mild cramps on and off since last Monday (more than a week ago) and cranky like impending period. I thought if I did O somewhere around that time last week I shouldn't have cm this much but I'm still having cm like when you are fertile. I don't know how to check cervix, just know to look at cm. I've never checked BBT.
My DH got sick on last Saturday with stomach bug and migraine so we didn't dtd since last Thursday. I don't know if I'm missing out fertile period or having period back or conceived. On top of this, my stomach is bubbly and I totally lost appetite, don't feel like doing anything (actually I took a nap 2 days in a row after nursing LO for a nap, I haven't done this for a while) but then it could be from this stomach bug my family is having...
I know many ladies do it but I had a doubt this morning, how I will be able to cope pregnancy with 19 mo old who is a sneaky trouble maker LOL... (also with 2 older kids...)
Baby dust to all who are waiting...
post #76 of 370
Wendylynn - Yay!!!

naturallyspeaking - I am pretty sure I ovulated on Saturday, and leading up to ovulation, I had well over a week with tons of EWCF. It might have been my first ovulation since DD was born, or it might have been my first in over a year (there's a questionable situation last August...) You might just still be gearing up.

AFM - my temp is still above the coverline today (though not as high as yesterday, so I'm still skeptical). Could I please be moved to the 2WW?

post #78 of 370
ok, so what the heck!!!??? I go in to my docs, they do a urine pg test, and the doc comes in with a woman cnm to ask a bunch of ?s. Then he explains that the test was negative, and that they'll send me for some bloodwork to verify. Then he asks what b/c we're using, and if I were pg, if I'd be ok with that. He was actually very nice about it, but I'm in the office about to cry. Then I asked him if the test is as sensitive as one I'd use, he said yes, or even better. Then he said I can call tomorrow am to check the results.

So, I'm at the grocery store picking up stuff for the week, and said, what the hell, I'm gonna buy another answer just to see it for myself....since I've had no bleeding and actually do have some pg sxs. As soon as I get home, 1.5 hrs after peeing at the doc office and with just a few drops of urine, I take the test. Immediately, it came up blaring positive! The test line is darker than the control line!! I'm soooo glad of course, but also a lil upset that I had to feel like that even if only for an hour . Guess just goes to show you how sensitive the tests are OTC these days !

Thanks for the input girls on the dollar tree test! No more guessing or worrying for me, well, at least for the most part LOL. I think I can finally relax a bit and bask in the fact that I AM pregnant !

naturallyspeaking~If you're having EWCM, I would definately bd....if pg is indeed your goal . I know it is hard being pg and caring for a nb while having other children that depend on you. That's when you have to rely on your dh and anyone else that can help you out ! I highly reccommend fertility friend if you're going to chart temp...it is very helpful, especially if you have no af to go by!

Wendlynnn, congrats!!
post #80 of 370
Congrats Daisy!
I see that you have younger LO than mine with more older kids LOL...
We can't dtd for anytime soon, dh has been sick since Saturday with stomach bug and migraine, he just came home from work complaining his stomach is still upset. Whatever God's will be done LOL...
