I'm definitely in the anger stage of grief at this point. I'm so mad I could spit. I didn't tell DH I tested, I'm just going to pretend I didn't and let come.
Oh my goodness! Baby_Cakes, I'm so sorry! I just looked at your chart a few minutes ago and thought, she needs to test...

Carrie ~ You are only 10dpo. A BFN at this point is inconclusive.
post #123 of 429
MW - According to FF and to my gut feeling I'm 11 dpo, which I know is still early, but it's reasonable to get a bfp. I got my bfp w/nora @ 11dpo.

But, I was thinking yeah, sure I could be only 10 dpo, or it could be a late implanter. One of my close friends was telling me that she tested bfn until 13dpo, so don't give up just yet. My chart doesn't lie and looks so pretty. I was really hopeful and almost just baffled as to why I'm not pg.

I'm mad. I'm doing everything right. I'm in a very angry mood now, and am just really fed up. If this is some big life lesson the universe has for me, it's a really crummy one and I'm giving it a giant double middle finger! I'm feeling bitter.

to you, too.

Unfortunately, temps don't really mean anything definitive during the 2ww except to show that you've Oed. It has been shown over and over again that there is no temp pattern that occurs on all or the majority of pg charts that never occurs on non-pg charts that means you are pg. In other words, it doesn't matter how "pretty" your chart looks. I wish there were something.

I know. I just meant the whole thing. Nice shift, etc. Not necessarily just the temps during the 2ww.

Oh, I thought you were talking about the high temp today since you said that was what prompted you to test. I know it doesn't really help you but I don't think you are out yet.
post #127 of 429
Well, it certainly didn't not prompt me to test. It was still up. I guess that's all I really got from my temp. It didn't plummet.

I know, I keep hoping that stays away. But sigh. Idk what I feel right now. I think JJ summed it up pretty well - numb.

I wonder if your temp was up so high because of the time change. Technically, you took your temp an hour later than you had been without time for your body to adjust. Not that it would mean anything if it were lower. Just something I wondered.
post #129 of 429
Babycakes- even if you are already 11dpo, it could still go either way. I have seen countless charts where women temp from 9dpo until they finally get a BFP at 12, 13, 14, 15 + DPO!

Don't give in to the anger until AF actually shows!!! Hang in there!
post #130 of 429
Morning, ladies!

Sigh, I'm pretty sure I'm out now. My temp did plummet today. I'm hoping stays away at least for today, so I can have that nice 12 full day lp again.

my chart

Im processing it. I'll be ok.
post #131 of 429
Carrie, that is such a bummer! hope she does stay away.

I have nothing to add, really. I did actually remember to temp the last couple days and they are higher than usual for pre-O temps (for me) but maybe affected by the cold I can't shake, or mouth breathing, which I tend to do if my nose is stuffy. Trying to get back in the habit is hard!

Who else is in the TWW?

MW - still no O?

Carrie ~ I'm sorry. If this is getting so upsetting for you, you could consult a doctor. It might help you feel a little better if you just have things checked out. I don't know. Just a suggestion.

katrina ~ I forget where you are in your cycle now.

I was wondering how sleeping with your mouth open might affect your temp. I woke this morning with a stuffed nose and am pretty sure I was sleeping with my mouth open. I woke an hour early this morning so my temp was a little low. Adjusted it would be right where I'd expect it so I don't know if having my mouth open made any difference. I would think it would make my temp lower. You are saying it makes your temp higher?

I got my crosshairs this morning on FF regardless, My FF Chart. Ovusoft did not give me crosshairs even though the temp was adjusted in that chart and made higher. My Ovusoft Chart

Thanks ladies!

I'm doing okay.  I think it's definitely time I go for an annual and just mention that we've been ttc, and maybe just get a full blood panel done to make sure things are good.  I haven't had anything checked out since I had Nora.  I wasn't good w/going for exams before having her, and I guess I've slipped back into old habits.

 

DH and I shared a bottle of wine last night (Ok, ok, I drank almost all and he had a few sips) and we decided something huge.  I'm not going to chart anymore.  I think mentally it's draining me, and I'm overthinking everything.  It is a great tool to have, and I feel a little scared letting go of my security blanket, but the truth is that timing everything perfectly hasn't helped us conceive so maybe the stress IS getting to me.  Idk.  All I know is I need a mental break - not a TTC break -- but a break from the obsession.

 

So maybe I'll fit in here @ whatevering even more! 

 

mw - nice ch's!  I agree w/FF's.  I love seeing a clear shift!

 

How is everyone else doing?  

post #135 of 429

Yay for crosshairs!

 

Carrie, I feel seeing a doc can't hurt, and might help, so who knows? I love me some good vino (and by good, I mean like at most a $12 bottle! I like nearly all the sorts made under the Duplin label) Good luck letting go charting, for us, using a fertility monitor really helped, as it took out the guesswork. I stressed a lot less that cycle (that was with DS). unfortunately, I passed along the good luck monitor and am unwilling to schill out for a new one.

 

MW: I would think it would make your temps lower, my temps have just been high for pre-O temps so I am a bit puzzled. I am on CD 14, waiting to O. . . . with as wacky as my cycles have been, I have no idea when that will be, but FF predicts next week shrug.gif pre-baby my CL was nearly always at 97.4, and my temps the last 3 days (the only ones I have temped this cycle) have been 97.4, 97.5, and 97.5. will keep chugging along and see what happens. I think I need to jump DH earlier in te evening, b/c if I wait until bedtime, we are too tired to bother. He is at least coming to bed when I do, which is a step in the right direction!

 

baby is still STTN! yay! and only 10 days until his 1st birthday!

post #136 of 429

I'm still hanging out here with you guys. I'm not ready to go over to a DDC yet. Plus this new format is giving me a headache!

 

MW: yay for crosshairs!

 

BC: Boo for AF. Good luck giving up charting...I had to FORCE myself to not take my temp this AM. It was hard!

This new format is weird, huh? I guess it's more like other message boards but going to take some getting used to on here. I wasn't getting email notifications again, either. Now I just tried to insert a smiley but couldn't figure out how to scroll through the smileys or how to close the window. I had to go back a page and restart my reply.

 

Carrie ~ Sorry about AF. Hopefully, not charting will ease your stress. I guess now I'll be the only one obsessing more than should be allowed for whatevering. hehe

 

Ovusoft gave me crosshairs today with the same O day as FF. I'm not doing very well at not obsessing and I'm only 4dpo. I was considering using an opk today just so I could test with something. I've also been considering getting some FRERs for 7-9dpo. I know I say over and over again that I hate them but the claims of them detecting as little as 6.3 mIU are sucking me in. I was thinking of getting a box of 3 to use as throw away tests just to see what I might get. I've got plenty of ICs to get me through the rest of my lp. I know they cost more but one box won't put me in the poor house.

Well, given your history and knowing that you need to start progesterone ASAP, I think it's perfectly reasonable for you to start testing right away. That's why I started testing so early.
 

post #139 of 429

I agree w/Annie, go for it. Test all you want!

 

I hope I can find peace with not charting.  I may still do opks, I'm undecided.  I want to take an active role but I don't want to be obsessive!

post #140 of 429

Active, but not obsessive is a fine line to walk! for me, OPK's are more obsessive than temping (I think it is because I have to pay for them, IDK) but to each their own - that is what whatevering is, yes?

 

MW: test all you want! I far prefer POAS to PIAC things, so lean towards the FRER ones myself. When will you start testing?

 

Annie, you are welcome as long as you choose to by here, even Lyterae pops in on occasion, and I think she was the first whatever BFP.
