Me! Actually, when I used to use Fertility Friend I did this a lot, comparing charts, changing things just to see what happened, and just staring... Since I started doing CM only and just have a paper chart I really don't obsess about it as much.

Daaaang, I got behind in this thread! I think I've caught up now!
Just popping in to ask if anyone knows what the heck I should expect. I should have taken my blank week of pills starting last Sunday. Last Wednesday AF should have started. But I didn't take a blank week, I just started a new pack (trying to skip AF to get AF the week before our wedding instead of right during our honeymoon/wedding). Wednesday passed with no spotting or anything so I thought I was in the clear. Today I woke up to spotting and cramping. Doh! So if I end up getting AF right now (today is day 8 of this pack of pills) then what's going to happen? December 18th will be my last pill. AF should start Dec 22. But if AF is going to start now then will it start again so soon (on the 22nd)?!? Or should I expect it 4 weeks from today (which would be the day after our wedding)? If I just stop taking the pills right now can I expect a full blown AF now? If *that's* the case I'm almost tempted to stop taking the pill now, let AF come right now and then just start TTC right now. But it would suck to get AF the day of or after our wedding. But on the other hand, it would rock to get a BFP on the day of our wedding!
I don't really know what will happen if you keep taking them or stop, it is so hard to say. I tried messing with my pills once way way back when I used to take them and everything got mucked up, it did not turn out how I wanted. Sorry I have no advice, but I hope regardless you both will have a wonderful honeymoon!
gozal - I am so sorry your body is frustrating you. I hope you get some answers at the gyn. There is nothing more frustrating then when our bodies will not do the thing we want them to do and the thing it seems like they are meant to do!

(I'm not temping so of course I can't be 100% sure.)
So the question is... Should we sneak in one more BD when DP gets home at 4ish? Or would it be necessary? We have a roommate and no extra rooms so we'd have to sneak off to the shower or something. I was going to try to wake up before he left for work so we could but apparently my alarm didn't wake me because I didn't wake up until he was kissing me goodbye.
Yes, sneak another in! There is a chance O has not happened yet. Is a ferning test the same as an OPK? I know an OPK gives you a 48-72 hour window. Also, I typically O after my EWCM is completely dry. I think this month I Oed almost 36 hours after my CM dried up. I think I still had a little creamy stuff to make BDing worth while, but the EW stuff stopped a day earlier.

I'm expecting a -, but... I'm an addict, so I can't help it. =D Hahahaha.
looking forward to hearing about your test, fingers crossed for a BFP!
AFM - I tested today at 9dpo . It does not look that faint in real life, and much darker then I was expecting at 9dpo!! I texted DH at work and thanked him for basting my turkey! Not sure that was a great way to tell him (by text) but I could not wait! I am very excited, I cried when I saw the test. I am nervous too though, after two m/cs there is no guarantee. i want to be happy now though. I have a few close friends I will tell right away, and probably my Mom and sister, but we wont be making a big deal about it for a few weeks. Maybe in Feb I will tell everyone. I was not planning to test this early, but I was feeling crappy. I figured it was just the promitrium, but my mind was starting to get excited and I did not want to get my hopes up, plus I have two Christmas parties this week I may have enjoyed a glass of wine at, plus I have my Life insurance exam this week and I am supposed to fast for the blood test, but I have been feeling so crappy and I don't have to do the fast if I am PG. So yippy, I don't have to fast. OK, I am so nervous! I hope you all don't mind if I hang around a for a bit,I am not ready for the DDC, I might lurk, but not sure I want to go there yet. Maybe in a couple weeks. Please move me to December BFP though, I want to celebrate in some way! You all are in my prayers, TTC is such a hard hard phase of life, there are few things that are as frustrating.
