The Fabulous ONE Thread Oct 3 - Oct 9 - Page 3

post #41 of 199
Please move me to waiting to O, today is CD1.

I had been spotting for the last 2 days, but my temp was up this morning so I was hopeful... that hope was short lived cause I went to the bathroom and there was bright red blood.

Anyways, time to start planning the next cycle, that makes me feel less discouraged. I get to start using my new fertility monitor, so that should be fun! I am also increase my Bcomplex from 100mg to 150mg since my LP is still too short. And I'm going to start EPO cause I had hardly any CM during my fertile phase last cycle (though I had plenty after O :P).

I have a good feeling about cycle 3. Both times my mom was TTC, she got pregnant on cycle 3 (her other 2 pregnancies were accidents).

Hi ladies! I'm back Please move me to 2ww

Looks like I'm cycle buddies with you gals again, Lydiah/Kyamo/Attached2Elijah/bonadl2 I'm 4DPO today. This is the first time I've been on MDC in more than a week, as DH and I were out of town and insanely busy, so we really had no time to stress about TTC which was AWESOME. Our timing was good, the night before O and the AM right after O, and I did temp while I was away, but other than that we were just too busy to think about it. Which was nice

For now, I'm going to try to stay a bit away from MDC and only pop in every few days rather than 50 times a day. I'm going to relax and catch up on chores and sleep for the next week, and try to let my body and DH's swimmers do their job without me panicking about it

BFN again this morning. AF is due approximately Wednesday, so maybe I'll just wait till then to test again. It definitely looks like the BFP yesterday was a false positive.

Sourire, bummer! Wishing you best of luck this cycle.

Oh I forgot, Lydiah -- please move me to Waiting to Know

Welcome back LivingSky!!! Good luck to all our cycle buddies!!!

Sourire Sorry Hope you get the cycle number three tradition your mom started!

Yellowdart Still very early, fingers crossed for you!

Atached2Elijah awesome! glad you got the comfirmation and now you it is the wait! I am hopeful for you

Afm: Holy temp plummet! Lol, I guess the temp doesn't mess around sometimes when it goes down, hm? I know she-who-will-not-be-named is coming, of course. Probably tomorrow, which is great because my LP was great this month. BUT, (TMI) I put in a tampon last night because whenever I have any spotting I start full force in my sleep and it is heavy. Got up this morning and did not start last night. I had put in.a.super. Veeerrrrryyyy uncomfortable to say the least! Lesson learned.

Updated OP

Sorry AF showed Sourire. JustLily I am sorry AF is effing with your mind. Sorry you got BFN Yellowdart. Stupid Blue tests, thats not fair.

AFM: I woke up with a ton of creamy CM mixed with EWCM. TMI but I had to get new underwear because they were too wet. This is so unusual for me. I usually have a little bit of sticky or creamy after O, and I am sometimes dry. I took soy this cycle and some claim it gives them a ton of CM, so maybe thats why. Even my cervix is still pretty soft, which is really odd for me at this point in my cycle. FF gave me crosshairs so I definitely O'd. What a weird cycle.

Cycle Buddies

Kyamo 3 DPO
Lydia 3 DPO
Attached2Elijah 4 DPO.
Bonadl2 4 DPO

That could be my problem. I have gotten pretty thin, maybe my body fat is very low.

Sourire: Don't give up hope, because your chart looks a lot like mine did and . . .

AFM: I'm pregnant! I got my BFP this morning. I didn't feel particularly pregnant. The first "signs" I had were some major twinges yesterday . . . I was moving straw bales, and when I tried to lift number 194 of 200, I felt weak. I stopped, I stood up, I waited a second, I had a MAJOR uterine twinge, I felt weak, I sat down and drank some water, I got really tired and fell asleep in the truck on the way home. My husband unloaded that load of bales. So I'm a little worried that the twinge was my uterus giving up, since I'm so stupid that I moved bales when I was preggers, but I'm pretty hopeful that it was more of a warning - "Stop doing stupid things, I'm working here!" or something. Anyway, I'm happy to lead the charge for all of the cycle buddies. Come on, let's get even more BFP's in October than in September! June babies will be fun, especially here in the north . And there's a lot of us from the relative north - Iowa, Montreal, Edmonton, Utah - c'mon, June babies! Hope, hope, hope.
AWWWWW YEAH!!! CONGRATS!! June babies are the best (I'm one!) It's already pretty cold and I'm in Ulster County, NY. This is gonna be a cooooold winter!

Wowie wowie wowie. Off to Walgreens to buy more tests.

I have my fingers crossed so hard for you. Keep us posted!!!

AFM: I have an ob/gyn appt on Nov. 12th. OH and I decided that I could come off the pill then as long as my doctor thinks I will be ok just on pain killers (I take the pill for pain management. I hate hormonal BC!!!). The pill makes me sick all the time and I'm crap at taking it. We'll see. Maybe I'll keep going until the wedding just so I know that I won't have it that day...(go figure, we decided this and this packet was nice to me.*facepalm*)

Trying really not to stress. I have trouble being into the whole idea until it's like OMG, it's time to try try try and then I freak out.
I think I probably have Oed last night or maybe later today, I am teetering on that waiting to O and TWW hump.

I run between 9 and 15 miles a week. I did a half marathon in August and somehow managed to get PG that month and miscarried. I was doing about 23 miles a week then. I have a feeling the m/c was a combo of low body fat and running the race when implantation was likely to have been occurring, I think implantation was very weak because I got a faint positive but started bleeding at 5 weeks, no clots or anything so I don't think anything took. I can not say for sure that running was an issue. Everyone seems to say exercise is good for TTC, but I am being much more careful not to over due it now and trying to make sure I keep my calories and water intake up. I read an article about running that said people who run long distances are not only burning fat, but tend to have much less fat in their diets.

I have a question about your CM, how many months have you been TTC? I have always had a very clear CM pattern too, but for the last three cycles, when we were TTC, my pattern has been much less obvious and I have been wondering if that is because DH and I are DTD during the fertile time. We usually abstain at that time and my CM was very clear. Now that we are having sex things are harder to read. I am operating under the assumption that my CM is still good, just harder to see. I usually 'expel' the SR after DTD and think maybe I am getting rid of the good CM I usually chart at the same time.

My cervix is soft high and open. And I have EWCM, does this mean I didnt O? I am so perplexed by this. If I put that into FF I get dotted CH. Oh I am so confused.

Thread Starter 
I woke up twice this morning. Once at 6 and once at 8. My first temp was 36.4 and my second was 36.5. At first I used 36.5, but now I think 36.4 is more accurate. I am not certain I have ovulated. My cervix is so high I can barely reach it. Its soft and open too. I have had a ton of EWCM today. I think I really wanted to believe I already ovulated at first but now I am unsure. SO I jumped DH just now. He was quite happy about that as he wasnt expecting it at all. My cervix usually gets bumped if he goes to deep and it hurts, but my cervix was so high today he couldnt bump it no matter how hard he tried. TMI, I am sorry. When I changed everything FF gave me dotted CH.

So I may not be your cycle buddies after all, BUT one of you can take over the cycle buddies if I am not.

soooooo confused

This morning I was certain AF had arrived because I saw some red blood. Well ok maybe it was slightly brownish red.

Anyways I spotted a bit this morning, but in the past 3 hours it has practically stopped. Also right before lunch I was feeling suuuuuuuper nauseated.

Now I have no idea whether it is CD1 or not. I guess just leave me in waiting to O for now, maybe tomorrow I will have a better idea wtf is going on! I have not yet taken a pregnancy test this cycle, I may take one tomorrow morning depending on how things develop.

What an emotional rollercoaster! I had completely given up hope for this cycle and now I am not sure anymore!

Okay, I am going to keep my runs at 3 miles this week and try to eat more fats. I can see how it could hurt implantation to run a lot. Last week I took it a little easier but I did run 4 miles on Saturday, 3 on Friday, 3 on Monday, 5 on Sunday. I'm feeling a little under the weather now so it will help me take it easy.

You know I never thought of that with the CM. It is usually like someone just cracked and egg up there on O day. Then this month I was all excited b/c it is our first month ttc. I never saw the normal CM, however, the day that I think I Oed (CD15) I do remember intercourse being VERY wet. Maybe I had the CM but just didn't notice. I took a OPK on Day 11 and 13 and there was absolutely no second line then on day 14 there was a second line but it was a little fainter than the control line so it was technically still negative. Then I ran out of tests but I have a feeling if I had a test it would have been positive on the morning of CD 15. We DTD the night of the CD15, CD16 and CD17. It was my hubby's birthday on CD 16, I was hoping for a little birthday surprise b/c he has been asking for a baby for a few months.

also my boobs have been sore since 1DPO but today they went to a whole new level. Before they only hurt when I poked/squeezed them but today there was pain shooting through them when I wasn't even touching them or anything! I have never had a feeling like that before in my life. Maybe I have bigger problems than whether I am pg or not lol.... or maybe that is just a really strange symptom!

I'm just curious now since you said this, but how does the BC help with your pain? I'm in nursing school, so any different kinds of treatments just really interest me!

AFM:
I am 14dpo now, and AF has not come yet. I'm not testing again until I am officially late, but at the very least, I've gotten a normal LP phase this month. This month has, in fact, been very 'normal' so far, with a O day on CD14 and now a normal LP phase. Just holding out a few more days to see what happens...

That was a MAJOR early symptom for me with ds. I remember going for a run, and wanting to cry it hurt so bad! I had thought it was just PMS that time, and didn't clue in until AF was late!
