I'm in. I'm probably both crazy and unrealistic. DD is 7.5 months, and I haven't had my first PP AF. But we'll try to catch that first egg.

Subbing...wishing everyone a fertile May! love.gif

I believe I can be put in waiting to O section now. I've had fertile mucus for several days now. I'm waiting to "dry up". wink1.gif I'm not temping, too much of a pain... We haven't DTD much so I'm sure this month might not be it, but that is ok.

 

OT: Has anyone here learned NFP from The Couple to Couple League? offtopic.gif

WELOCOME northwoods!!  Crazy?!  No way!

 

Yay for impending O texasfarmmom!  I've never heard of The Couple to Couple League...until I Googled it, just now.  Hopefully someone else has experience to share!

 

AFM:  I'm finding it really difficult to temp right now.  I keep sleeping through my alarm; DH wakes me when he hears it go off, but I just turn it off and go back to sleep.  Then I realize, when I get up for the day, that I didn't temp!  lol  I think I need to change the alarm tone and put it under my pillow with the therm again.  I'm on CD 24 with a few signs of nearing my fertile period, so hopefully I do (and O) WAY earlier than last cycle smile.gif  That's about it.

I haven't, but my friend who is on these forums has (I think). Her name on here is JMJ. She taught me about the low and high temperature lines rather than just the one with TCOYF. Helped me when my temp stayed high beyond AF starting.


AFM- oh my god I think I has an implantation dip! Been reading about it and it doesn't mean for sure, but definitely more likely! That with the spotting I've had (which is still around, so I'd definitely say not a DTD injury) is making me VERY hopeful. Now for my question: how long would you all wait to test?!? I still have some cheap dollar store tests, so money isn't a huge issue. I really hate the feeling of a negative test though. :-/

ok quick intro and question. I am nursing an 18 month old and got ppaf last month 4/20 my pre-preg cycles I ov'd around CD12-13. I am cd 12 i believe and no fertile cm yet. Please tell me about your first several cycles. I also just started a new job, I am a NP, so we will offically TTC in july.
post #9 of 219

 

congratulations carolyn!   can you move me to waiting to o?  AF showed up on day 34.  i thought the vitex had been helping, my previous 2 cycles were 30 days.  BOO.

post #10 of 219

lactatinggirl that sounds very promising!! Between the spotting and the implantation dip, I bet you are going to get your BFP!! Woo!

post #11 of 219
Hi Mamas,
I'm joining in hoping to get a BFP this summer. DS is about to turn 16 months and is nursing up a storm still so I'm hoping that I can breastfeed through pregnancy and tandem.
I'm on CD 3 today. This month I may be not TTC yet but not preventing either, but next month I'm definitely going to try and catch the eggy.

Updated to here!

 

Lactatinggirl- I think the recommended test time is 18DPO, but I think technically there could be a measurable amount of hCG a couple days past implantation winky.gif
 

Mommy2LexiLivy- WELCOME!!  my cycles have been all over the place (31 - 130 days) and I'm 3yrs PP, if that answers your question.

 

hildaregreensad.gif about AF      fingersx.gif for the next cycle!

 

marinak1977- WELCOME!!

 

 

Also, semi off-topic, my sister just told me today that she's pregnant!!  Her son is 3 months younger than mine and they've been NPP/TTC since his birth (with a forced year long break, while BIL was deployed in Afghanistan)  It was her first eggy since he came home!!!  I'm so happy for them joy.gif

Welcome! I'm on my 4th PP cycle and I have been O'ing at least a week later than I did before DD was born. I've also had a short LP each time....9 days....and I didn't have any LP problems before DD either. Good luck to you in July!

Hi Marina! We were in the same DDC :) We hope to try next cycle too!

Hi, all!  I'm excited to hear everyone's stories, and hopeful for some good news myself (eventually, probably unrealistic to think any time soon).  DD is 10 months, finally feeling well again and night weaned, and we're hoping to catch the first egg!

post #15 of 219

Congrats Carolyn!!! Here's to hoping there are lots more BFPs this spring!

post #16 of 219
I got my cycle back 10 months PP. My cycles do seem changed, I get a lot more EWCM now for almost a week and my LP seems shorter (9-10 days). I'm hoping that it goes back to normal length and I can catch the egg.

Carmen, it's good to see you here!
I'm looking forward to being part of this thread and getting to know everyone! orngbiggrin.gif Congrats to the recent BFP!!!
post #17 of 219
Bugglette, how exciting for your sister! Hopefully you're not too far behind!

lactatinggirl, sounds ultra-promising! I've never temped but always get implantation spotting and a BFP about 2 days later! Will be watching for yours!

Welcome to the new mamas!

AFM, I am having fertile-ish CM after thinking I already o'ed while I was sick, so confusing! I didn't use OPKs because I was so dehydrated I didn't think they would be accurate. Maybe I will use one tonight and see. It would be nice to have a second chance this cycle but I was already counting down to AF so I could start fresh!
post #18 of 219
Looks like I may drop an egg soon, EWCM today loads, I am cd 13 so I am banking on friday, my LP las month was 11 days . I got MY PPAF on my second day of my new job, hoping to be prepared this time.
post #19 of 219
Good luck Mommy2LexiLivy!

Well, I did indeed get a + OPK tonight, so maybe my body just geared up to o and didn't? Either way, back in the saddle for me!

Good luck Mommy2Lexilivy and blissful_maia!!

 

 

I have had O type pains for about 2 days now (all on the right side) then today I have a headache and am super nauseous.  FX that means a good strong O is on the way.  We haven't DTD since Sun AM, hopefully we can get in a couple more times before I see a temp spike.  Seems like lots of us are just about to O at once!
