The awesomely fabulous ONE THREAD for December 19-25! - Page 4

post #61 of 107

A2E - I am so happy that you got your Christmas mircale and that your grandfather is doing well!  I'll keep praying for a speedy recovery for him (though it seems he's well on his way). 

 

sleepingbeauty - Thanks for the hugs!  I'm sorry to hear about the girls moving.  I'm sending some hugs back at you.  hug2.gif

 

AFM - Really weird AF this cycle.  I spotting for a day and a half, bled heavily for a day and a half, and now nothing.  So a total of three days bleeding in some form or fashion.  I also had killer cramps for two days, and some rather large clots (unusual for me).  I don't know if this is an affect of the clomid or what.

Val--Thank you. It's a good thing.  They'll be safer over there.  Just sucks, you know?

A2E Thats so wonderful. What a great Xmas present.

 

 

AFM: I have to bring a couple casseroles to xmas dinner at the inlaws.I am making candied yams and green bean casserole. Its usually not a stable for our holiday dinners, and it will be my first time making either of them. I have some green beans from my garden so that will be nice I hope. :)

 

Happy Holidays ladies. Enjoy your time with family and such. <3

A2E, that's fantastic news! I'm glad things are going much better than anticipated!

 

Would someone please look at my chart? http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/29267 My temp is way down this morning. The shortest LP I've had before was 10 days... but isn't that too much of a drop to be an implantation dip? Maybe AF is coming for Christmas, as usual.

A2E - That is really good news about your grandfather!  What a trooper, up and at it already too!!!

 

SleepingBeauty - Hope you have an awesome 5 days with the girls before they move. 

 

Lydiah - hope your casseroles turn out beautifully!

 

ValH - I don't have experience with clomid, but I do know that ever since TTC my body keeps playing tricks on me and changing things up a bit.  So maybe your AF is just acting up on you?  Another way to play with our minds?  lol sorry..

 

Mummoth - I haven't done much charting, but I wouldn't think that dip is low enough to signal AF.  It's still above the cover line right?  FX for you!!!

 

AFM - I think today is O day, a day later than normal.  And morning BD doesn't work for us cause I can't seem to get the donation lol.  Ugh how depressing.  Hopefully we will have time tonight for some successful BD!!!!

 

For christmas we are having everyone over for dinner, including kids it will be just shy of 30 people!!  Whoot Whoot!!!  And to fit that many people in our tiny house, we will be hosting in our lovely garage.  Red Neck Christmas??  Maybe, but its loads of fun and super nice to not have to go to 3-4 different christmas dinners just to see everyone.

A2E:  That's great!  Good to hear his body is cooperating so well with how young he must still feel.

 

Val:  That is odd indeed.  shrug.gif  I'm sorry I don't have anything useful to say about it.

 

Mummoth:  I think it can be considered a possible implantation dip - I've heard that it's ok as long as it isn't below coverline.  Stay positive until you see red!

 

AFM:  Any opinions on my (admittedly wacky) chart?  I think I might have O'd on day 14 rather than 17, which means that my temp dip this morning is not below my coverline.  I'm thinking that I O'd on 14, had a slow-rise AND a fallback rise, and that my current temp dip is still above my coverline.  FF gave me dotted crosshairs for CD14 at first, but switched it after my temp on CD18.  Anyway, I'm not panicked about it or anything, I'm just trying to get better at figuring this stuff out.

 

My chart.

This is waaaay tmi, so I apologize! Question for those who check cervical mucus. Obviously I'm new to all this and haven't really checked cervical mucus (since I was on the pill until a couple weeks ago) or anything like that. I hadn't noticed anything different earlier this week but assumed I probably o'd around day 14. However, I just used the restroom and there's an insane amount of cervical mucus. (again- way tmi coming! You've gotten your warning!). I did number 2 and when I looked down there was mucus all the way from my woo-woo to the water in the toilet. I wiped and wiped and wiped and there was so much of it. Is this a sign of o? Should I consider O coming soon? In the next day? 12 hours? Should I get to bd asap?! LOL! Today is day 16 of my cycle.

Congrats to you!  What a Christmas blessing!

post #71 of 107

blush.gif I just figured out that AFM stands for 'as for me'! I was wondering why people kept directing the interesting questions at one specific person!

 

Hykue~ I agree with O on day 14... 36.8 seems very high for a cover line to me. On CD17, your temperature is a hollow circle, is that because of sleep deprivation? I'd be tempted to disregard that temp and see what happens with the coverline (you can switch it back) 

 

Liz, wow! That's going to be chaotic, but the kids will remember it forever! We had Christmas at my sisters' once where the men were all in the garage... with the kids... and the drum set... but in the house was nice and peaceful!

 

AFM winky.gif Thanks for the feedback on my chart! I hope it was an implantation dip... I'm so glad we're going to be busy this afternoon and for the next few days!! My daughter announced this morning that she wants to go sit on Santa's lap... immediately after I told her that , no, I won't be giving her make-up for Christmas! I guess she's still a beleiver! Now, I'm actually tempted to get her a bit of kids' make up (I HATE it, it's messy and it agravates her eczema) just so her grand plan to bypass me will have worked.

That is definitely a sign that O is coming... could be today or 3 days from now, I don't know how to tell... GET BUSY!!

 

And CONGRATS to LadyJennifer!!! 

 

Sorry for post-flooding you all.. by the time I hit submit, there were more posts!

post #73 of 107

StephandOwen.... that is exactly what it is like when you have your MOST fertile CM!!! I am sure your O will be either today, tomorrow, or possibly even the day after... now go BD like crazy!!!!

 

A2E - so happy to hear about  your grandfather, what a wonderful thing to happen around Christmas.

 

LadyJennifer - I already congratulated you in another thread but BFP's are so awesome you definitely deserve another! Congrats!

 

Hykue - I vote for a CD14 O, maybe if you change the analysis method in your chart it will go back to 14.

 

AFM - has anyone ever experienced major mood swings after starting Natural Progesterone Cream? I started taking the cream at 3 DPO and I am now 6 DPO and I am getting SUPER angry at everyone, I can barely control myself! This is how I usually feel the day before AF starts, but worse... yikes! The crazy thing is that I am only taking half the recommended dose right now.... I am seriously having trouble preventing myself from strangling a few of my coworkers at the moment, its bad....

post #74 of 107

LMAO Steph... Isn't it fun to share such intimate information on the internet? But yes, THAT is definitely what you want! Now go jump him and make you a Christmas baby!!!

LOL.... I wrote and erased that post so many times, debating whether to post it. LOL!

post #77 of 107

OK, what GIVES?!  I have been spotting for two days now (99.99% brown that I wouldn't even notice except for checking my cervix and putting TP into my vagina - TMI I know).  I nearly always spot before a period, and I am certainly due for mine by now.  Lots of symptoms that could be equated with either PMS or pregnancy, but no cramping.  I thought a few hours ago that AF had finally shown because when I touched my cervix there was some fairly red "blood", but I guess it wasn't super dark/bright.  Now when I check it is just brown again.  banghead.gif

 

I took a test at what I assume to be 9DPO, and today is probably 14DPO.  Took another, got another BFN.  They are tests from Big Lots, 2 of them for $1.90 LOL.  Do you think they are crap?  I have another one... should I take that with FMU tomorrow?  Should I get a Dollar Tree test or FRER or something else (won't have the chance until tomorrow anyway)?  Should I wait another whole day?  HELP!

 

I do NOT feel like AF is coming.  I honestly don't, but my mind wants to tell me that pregnancy isn't possible with a negative test.

post #78 of 107

Congratulations, Lady Jennifer!  That's great!

 

StephandOwen:  Sounds great!  I've never had quite that much, but the wiping over and over thing I have had to do.  And don't worry about offending us - you gave lots of warnings, no-one had to keep reading!  Have fun taking advantage of it!

 

Mummoth:  My time for temping is kind of all over the place, but that one was the earliest by far.  When I discard it, it puts me back to O'ing on CD14, which is what I thought happened . . . it was kind of hard to tell because I had a UTI and finished my antibiotics that day, so I felt all weird.

 

Filiadeluna:  I don't have much input, but pregnancy is possible while getting negatives.  Probably not likely, but definitely possible.

post #79 of 107

Filiadeluna...   At this point I would wait until the 26th to test again. Then you can still be hopeful through Christmas, kwim? (Unless you don't celebrate, in which case, pee in a cup, use the test you got, then dash out to a store and back home to use the same pee with another test.)

Can someone please take over the thread for next week? I will be leaving early Sunday morning and won't be back on for almost 2 weeks. I wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and a fantastic new year. I hope I come back on here and see lots of BFPs!!!
