Thanks for the new thread cbaa! What a cute title!

Thanks for the new thread!

post #4 of 76

Love the title for the thread!  So cute!


I'm on CD 12 now. I keep having this pattern of EWCM starting for a day or two with no other signs (cervix is still low and firm) and then the CM goes away but the cervix starts to rise and soften and then the EWCM comes back again and I finally ovulate. So I end up having about 7-9 days of CM, I just wish it would be all EWCM!  So I'm at the point where the CM has stopped but probably should resume in the next day or two.  I expect to ovulate on Thursday, give or take a few days here or there so am just trying to figure out the timing for sex.  Last cycle we tried every day for 7 days in a row leading up to and including ovulation day and that was exhausting! lol!  So I think I might just do every other day and then throw a few days in a row once the EWCM picks up again and the cervix is high so then i'll know I'm really close to ovulation. I always hate this guessing part of the cycle.  I really hope a lot of us get BFPs this month.  It just seems so fitting with it being spring and everything else growing and coming to life - it's seems like the perfect time to get pregnant!

LOVE the name of the new thread. I agree, Easter seems the perfect time to get PG. Fingers crossed for everyone!!! 

post #6 of 76

LOVE the new thread name! Thanks cbaa!!


AFM: I'M SO CONFUSED! So, I took my temp for the first time since the after the surgery and now all the sudden FF has me Oing TEN DAYS AGO!!

I don't think I trust this! I almost tested this morning because AF should have been here on Friday, but she's a no show. I feel NOTHING right now, and I would be 10dpo. I also temped this morning just so I could decide whether or not I should waste a test. If my temp was higher than it had been, I would have tested, but it wasn't. We BARELY BD'd during this time, but got one in two days prior to this "O".

Would you test tomorrow or not? I don't want to get my hopes up, because I had already decided I wasn't Oing, and even managed to get myself referred to an RE. I don't want to see a BFN - two were enough last Monday!


FF says I should see AF tomorrow, but I normally spot two days prior and I've had nothing. What to do?!

post #7 of 76

Thanks for the thread!


Shelley71: I would probably wait a few more days and see how everything works out.


AFM: Didn't test this morning as planned (Easter is a little crazier now that I'm married and have two families lol!) but planning on testing tomorrow morning. AF is due Wednesday, but hopefully she won't come! Fingers crossed. My cervix is oddly high and pretty firm, thinking this is a good sign? Also have more CM than usual, it's creamy/wet. BBs are a bit more sensitive than usual, and normally aren't before AF. Hmm.


I hope everyone had an awesome Easter!

Wilddoula - I'm checking in with you! BFNs for me so far, and my AF is due Wed too. Crossing fingers for both of us, and fideluna (I think?) too.
post #9 of 76

Shelley71...   Huh...   All you can do is wait and see what happens over the next couple days. I don't blame you for not wanting to test, those BFNs feel so final.


AAM...   Looks like I ovulated yesterday, which I just realized means that I ovulated on Easter. I don't celebrate the religious holiday, but I do sometimes celebrate the Easter Bunny. So, if I decide to obsess, I can obsess over the sperm finding the Easter Egg(s)! LOL


Of course my chances aren't as great with no BDing since Friday night! Men! Hmph!


Everybody Thnk Fertile Thoughts!!

post #10 of 76

Thanks for the new thread!!! My body is KILLING ME right now!! LOL I had a "normal" PPAF in March. Started my second PPAF on April 7th and here it is April 25th (the day before my 3rd yr wedding anniversary) and today is CD1 AGAIN!!!  This last one was an 18 day cycle!  LOL i guess it's a good thing we really aren't trying right now or this could get ugly lol.


I hope you ladies are doing well...and maybe you can all catch your little Eggies!!!

post #11 of 76

Hi guys. I feel ready to be hauled off to the mental hospital. I think I might really be losing it! 12dpo (maybe 13) and I don't think I can wait until Sat am to test (AF due Fri). But I'm going to. I'm a moody mess. What I can't handle is the crying (SO unlike me) about EVERYTHING! It's ridiculous. mecry.gif

Got really positive opk's yesterday & today. Temp spiked this am but I'm not sure it was accurate since I haven't been temping & I didn't sleep well. Cervix is still HSO, guess I'll try & get one more in tonight!

Sila- sounds promising!

Shelley- I'd try & wait. How does ff's estimation compare with that high reading you got?
post #13 of 76

Shelley, I would wait, too, unless you have dollar store cheapie tests you can use.  (They DO work!!!)


Sila...ugh, sorry about the emotional rollercoaster.    ???


brichole...you already have a PPAF??? Wowsa.  I just had my first April 2, after giving birth in Nov 2009!  But I also think CD1 might be coming back, again....early for that!


WildDoula....good luck!  Sounds very promising for you!


post #14 of 76

Well got another BFN this morning. Starting to lose some hope.

post #15 of 76

cbaa2010...   Looks like our cycles unmatched this go around. I hope they match up again at the end with twin BFPs! baby.gifbaby.gif

post #16 of 76

Well, that was short lived. As soon as I put in this morning's temp - FF took away the O. I was a little surprised because today's temp was higher, so I thought that would keep it where it was. Still no sign of AF, and I'm having a lot of pinkish mucus - and I mean a LOT. It's like EWCM even. It's definitely not spotting, but it made me think I started several times today based on how it felt. I am not having any normal AF symptoms either. So, I don't know what to think.


Also, called the RE's office today and I have to get prior authorization from my insurance before I can go in. They also told me that they don't treat single women!! WTH?? They asked my husband's name so I clarified that he is my boyfriend. She said they didn't treat singles, but that they don't "verify" it either. So, are you telling me that infertile single women do not deserve children??? Unfortunately, they're the only referral I can get, so I'm stuck. Otherwise, there is NO way I'd go there.


I should have gone and bought some cheapy tests because I'm going CRAZY not testing, but why test when there's no definite O? Ugh!

post #17 of 76

Shelley - Does that mean that they consider you to be single just because you and your BF aren't married? That is ridiculous! I know tons of very serious long term couples who have chosen not to get married for a variety of reasons. How dare they judge people based on their marital status? This just infuriates me!


AFM - My appointment to get all my fertility test results and figure out what the next step is for me is TOMORROW! I am so, so, so excited about this appointment!!! For me the ideal outcome would be getting a prescription for Clomid since I have seen a few other ladies on this board with problems similar to mine get pregnant as soon as they were on Clomid. My fingers are crossed that the doctor is nice (its a doctor I've never met) and that I get what I want! If I do get the Clomid I could be pregnant as early as next cycle which is just too exciting for words!!!!

post #18 of 76

BFNs for me and some red spotting. But no real flow. So, I'm out, but my stupid brain keep saying "you're not REALLY out til she FLOWS." :( Why can't I just move on already. AF I know you're coming...just come ON.

post #19 of 76

I'm out. AF arrived this morning and I'm so very very sad. mecry.gifmecry.gifmecry.gif

post #20 of 76

Shelley71...   As a single woman, that sort of thing pisses me off! Someone should sue that place for discrimination! The moral policies some businesses stand on are outdated and insulting! It sounds like whomever answered the phone also disagrees with their policy, otherwise she would not have told you about their never confirming the marital status. I would hate to be in such a position, but I don't see how you can refuse to use them when there are no other local options.


Someone should report them to a local LGBT group, maybe they could send in some gay or lesbian couples/singles, and see if they are refused treatment/service.


And sorry about your wacky cycle, it sounds like AF is getting ready to visit you.


AAM...   I'm saying I have definitely ovulated, so please move me to Waiting to Know. Thank you.
