On average we BD every other day, but it's been every day lately, this weekend we were celebrating my DD's and my birthday so we were busy and tired, so timing was a little off.

 

For now I am going to use the rest of my OPKs.

AF just left today!- Haha, sayonara sistah :) 

 

Just started my first chart today!  Excited to hopefully see a pattern in my temps... just another way to track this month, so I'm excited. :)  I will also continue using OPKs again and tracking my CM of course.  Will continue PreSeed and evening primrose.  I will post my chart in a couple weeks. :)

 

Here goes cycle 3. thumb.gif

I'm going a little nuts here.  I broke down and tested yesterday, and I can't tell if my mind is playing tricks on me or if the tiniest hint of a line I'm seeing is pink or grey (FRER).  Now this morning, another FRER is showing what I *think* is an evap, but the Wondfo might be showing some pink.  Combined with a jump in temp (98.0-1 up to 98.5), I'm going nuts.  

 

Can I fast forward to tomorrow so I can test again and possibly get a clear line on my anniversary??  (How totally awesome would THAT be!!)

 

 

ETA: Just found out my Wondfos are from a bad batch.  Hope = dashed.

I got 1 FR evap and like 3 cheapie evaps last cycle, so I'm not using cheapies this cycle and not trusting a result till I miss AF. I will be testing before then, but still won't believe the result till I'm late.

Technically I've already missed AF, since my previous LPs were only 8 days.  This is my first cycle on Progesterone and my first time making it to double digits for DPO. 

post #1086 of 1307

I am on 2dpo and having really sore nipples for two days now...Last cycle I had a very short luteal phase and O'd on day 55...Now this cycle I O'd on day 21 and had great EWCM...Hoping we make it through this one=)

post #1087 of 1307

I think I am officially O'ing today.. We didnt BD last night, but did day before and I am hoping to tonight and tomorrow...

 

I AM SICK OF OBSESSING ABOUT SEX TIMING!!!!!

 

DH: Wanna make love?

Me: No point i am past ovualtion

 

I am SICK OF BEING LIKE THIS!!!

post #1088 of 1307

Also why is it considered still a fertile time on O day and O + 1?? Wont it have been missed by the time the sperm get up there?

Hah! I think I ovulated today also, had some watery CM (which I had a lot of with DD) and I still have LH surging, but not as high as yesterday. Our conversations are the same also, but DH is the one saying "your past ovulation", but we are still BDing anyways smile.gif 

 

so we are both on CD20, O day... now the 2WW begins tomorrow.

I think this is because a +OPK indicates ovulation is eminent within 12-36 hrs, sometimes 48 with certain brands and after that the egg hangs around for 12-24 hrs, so for example:

 

CD 18 (-O): 12pm- +OPK

CD 19 (O): 12pm- Ovulation

CD20 (+O): 12am- egg "leaves"

 

so BDing on -O, O and +O is ideal to catch the egg.

post #1091 of 1307

ok so will jump on hubby tonight then, and tomoorow too..

 

Does anyone else find this so exhausting? The thinking and timing and waiting and doubting and checking and double checking?

 

DH keeps saying to me "I cant wait til your pregnant.. But i dont wanna try try".... I keep trying to explain it to him "we have three or four days honey- we cant just have unprotected sex at anytime and be pregnant"

His general response- "Then why do they teach it like that at school"

haha!

I wish it was just as simple as having sex and old day and it happening!

But its been harder than I expected trying to get DH to have lots of sex hahaha

My LH surge seems to have been Day 18- which we DTD on- Positive OPK- LOTS of EGCM

Yesterday was 19- Didnt BD- Still positive OPK

Today is 20- Planning on DTD PM- Negative OPK and LOTS of EW CM

Tomorrow- 21- planning on doing the deed

 

So that looks promising- am I right?

Good job on timing BDing.

 

Since we are cycle buddies I'll give you the TMI info:

CD 17-18: EWCM

CD 19: +OPK, BD'd

CD 20: lighter OPK, BD'd

 

I'm sure I get EWCM before ovulation. Other than that I have CM after my surge, which doesn't dry up until after my next AF is done, so basing O on CM is not a good indicator for me, so OPKs work best for me.

 

According to your CM info, it seems like you probably did ovulate today and should keep BDing until your CM drys up.  

 

post #1094 of 1307

Thanks so much!

Its encouraging to hear from other people on the journey! Esp as we  are cycle buddies!

Now I can calm down and just get on with BDing and see if AF comes along in 14 days ish

What day are you going to start testing?

post #1095 of 1307

nemrac, I can't wait to see what your tomorrow brings (since you have already updated our temp and testing for today).

 

AFM, fertility friend just put up that I am in the 2WW.  I post-O lows and pre-O highs are the same temp, so I have a feeling this won't be the month for me.  Just have to wait another 10 days to find out!

post #1096 of 1307

Lilac - I was SO hoping today would be the day I'd see that 2nd line as it's my 8th anniversary with my wonderful hubby.  The 2nd higher temp is definitely getting my hopes up a bit.  I return to my regular sleeping schedule tomorrow (I work nights, but I've been off the past 4 days so I switched over to being awake during the day), so we'll see if that affects my temps at all.

 

At the very least, I now know my LPD was from a Progesterone insufficiency.  Thank goodness I have a doc who was willing to start treating me after only TTC since November.  He LOVED that I brought my charts with me to my appt so he could get a clearer picture of what was going on with me.

post #1097 of 1307

Hello ladies! Im back for my second TWW! I held off until today (8 dpo) but I couldn't stand another second; I HAD to talk to you!  (Hi Lilac, I remember you from last month! Stay positive!)

 

I've got my sx...sore bbs since 4 dpo, bloating, gassy, twinges, crampy but I had all of that last month too so even though I know they are good signs, I feel like a sad little camper. Last month each thing made me so excited. I've only been trying for 2 months and I guess Im already jaded.  

 

I did change some stuff up this month: Before O I did EPO (1500mg/day) and  drank tons of water and grapefruit juice to boost my EWCM. I still didnt really get my EW, but TONS of watery this round....after O I totally discontinued my Red Raspberry Leaf Tea. I tend to believe that its just a good uterine tonic and doesnt stop baby from sticking, but I was too scared to take the chance this month. I also took lots of warm to hot baths last TWW, temping and getting out when it started to get high. This time only luke warm showers for me :/

 

I feel like I have more lotiony/creamy CM than last time, but not "globs" like some of you say you have.

 

My app says I still have 7 days to go before AF is due to arrive, and I really don't want to waste my lingering energy or sanity on lots of tests, but I feel like from tomorrow on it's going to get harder and harder to resist. I'm so glad you are all here!

Update:  Since my FMU was a bit on the dilute side, I decided to retest with my SMU, which was far more concentrated.  I did both a Dollar Tree test (still negative) and a FRER, which I mistakingly only dipped for 3 seconds.  I thought I saw *something*, so I immediately grabbed a 2nd one and did the correct 5 second dip.  I think I see something there, too.  

 

Here's a pic taken at about 7 minutes (the 3sec dip, top) and 4 minutes (the 5sec dip, bottom)...

that's a BFP, congrats! here's to a healthy 9 months. How many DPO are you? joy.gif

post #1100 of 1307

Thank you!!

 

11 or 12 DPO.  FF and TCOYF put O-day as the 17th, but my temps on the 17th and 18th were taken around 4:30pm.  I really think I actually O'd in the wee hours of the 18th.

 

I'm still shaking.  I keep looking at the tests and the picture, just to make sure the lines haven't disappeared on me.  Now to keep my fingers crossed for a sticky bean, as miscarriages run in my maternal line.
