Nursing Mamas TTC June - Page 4

post #61 of 340

itsybitsyspider, welcome back and good luck to you!!! :)

 

naturegirl, I am so sorry.  Perhaps it's not the end yet....?  Let us know how things turn out.

 

Bugglette, I think you asked me about playing cello.  I do!  I have played since I was 9 years old...so....eek, we're getting dangerously close to 25 years!  I don't play nearly as often now as I did in school, but can pull it out when I want to play with friends or for an orchestra pit for a musical.  DS is not wild about it (not sure what it is about the sound of it?), so I haven't played it much for him.

 

boomer78, if 78 is your birth year, you and I are the same age.  Good luck to you!  I have had two ppafs and we have been trying for both, so I hear you on being ready for another!!!  I don't know about you, but I do feel like an "old mom" a lot and don't want to be much older before our family feels complete.

 

jips, nice to see you here...good luck.  We are just starting to TTC #2 and I have always wondered if it would be harder this time...you have support here!!!

 

AAM: 9 DPO and no AF yet, so that is a good sign as far as LP goes. I don't "feel" pregnant this cycle, so I'm thinking I'm probably not, but YAY for a longer LP!!!!!  If we can go another day or two, it will be long enough, I think right?  I do kind of feel like AF is coming, but I know you can feel that way when you are PG, too....so....half crossing fingers... LOL

naturegirl---saying a little prayer for you right now. :)

Cellist, Hi!

Yes, it is my birth year. biggrinbounce.gif  And just like you, I don't want to wait for another baby too long.  I already feel like I should have started so much sooner.  I wish I at least had ONE ppaf.  I was soooo happy not to have had one for so long and now I want it baaaad!  sleepytime.gif   I don't think it's that easy to get pregnant on the first pp ovulation (without a period).  I reduced the number of nursing sessions (sadly I already see a very quick decrease in my supply - never had a problem up until now). 

 

So good luck to everyone on here!!! goodvibes.gif

Waiting to O, please.  Damn AF came yesterday.  But hey, at least she's getting more consistent, right?

It's so funny that being born in '78 makes us old.  I have several good friends my age who aren't even close to being ready for motherhood yet.  I think I often feel like I am one of the 'young' moms, but biologically speaking, not so much!

 

Mommy2LexiLivi--I am no chart expert, but your temp fluctuations don't seem unusual to me.  I occasionally get an outlying temp, but usually have my pre-O temps fall within 4 degrees like yours.  I wonder what your post-O highs will look like?

 

NatureGirl--Not knowing, I'm sure, is frightening.  I hope for the best for you.

 

I am 13 dpo and feeling hopeful.  I had some mid-cycle spotting (luteal phase day 3 and 4, and one lighter spot on day 8) which is unusual for me, but I am chalking it up to my first cycle taking Maca.  The thing that has me feeling the most hopeful is that my nipples are terribly sore.  When dd latches on, my toes curl!  I would love to take a test, but am trying to be patient.  After 9 cycles ttc, I know that getting a BFN followed by the arrival of AF is like getting slapped in the face twice.  I prefer just one day of depression, thank you very much!!

 

Hope everyone's week is off to a great start and thanks for making me feel so welcome!

I am pretty frustrated because our timing was bad, only 3 days before O and 1 day after. We had a lot of late bedtimes for dd and one night my dh was unavailable because of his game night. Grrrrr, I am determined that it go better next cycle. At least I O'd on cd 19, which is the earliest yet since dd. Things seem to be getting back on track and I have stopped all the supplements like the vitex, etc.

 

Congrats to Hildare!


You and I have similar stories this month. I believe I Oed 6 days ago and DH and I BDed 3 days before and the day after if I remember right. shy.gif I should know these things! I guess I'm not obsessing as much as I thought. I can't get to my chart right now b/c DD is nursing and napping in my arms. I am on cd34 today. I hope for the best for both of us, and for us all! DD was conceived by bding 5 days before O and not great mucus!!! :)

Yes, I've gotten a positive OPK two days in a row.  For myself, it seems I ovulate the day following the first positive OPK, but that might not be true for you.  (I have been charting for a couple of years now.)  I utilize the other symptoms I have and charting to pin-point O.  I believe if you're going to O right now (sometimes our body gears to O and doesn't actually O), you will possibly O within 12-48 hours of the first OPK.  I hope this is okay to say (whistling.gif), but if I were you, I would BD or inseminate on the first day of a positive OPK and then the next two days.  I would also continue to chart to ensure I actually O'd based upon temperature and CM changes. 

 

As for your temperature changes, is this your first chart and/or is this normal for you?  If this is your first chart, it may be normal for you.  Are you waking often in the night?  Are you temping at the same time?  Those things can influence your temperature.  Also, they don't really seem that "off" to me and though mine are typically more "neat", it doesn't really mean a whole lot until you look at your cycle as a whole.  If your temperature increases above the coverline and remains high after O, the fluctuations right now probably mean nothing.  All of that to say, I would continue BDing when you normally would and wait until your cycle is over to analyze the fluctuations and see if there is something that needs to be addressed.

Thinking of you, naturegirl! 

Thanks for your support, Bugglette!  It means a lot just to have someone peak at my chart and give me their opinion! 

 

Please move me to the 2ww! It looks like I o'ed after all!  Actually, I'm 7dpo, I think.  I missed temping this morning because dd was still sleeping and the window was open and the birds were chirping so loudly! :)  I got up and as I was closing the window, I thought 'oh no! I forgot to temp!'

I'm not so sure of our chances, partly because this is the 14th cycle now, and I am less optimistic each month, and partly because I never got a pos. opk and my cm was meh.  I got a dark opk line several days earlier, but they went back to neg.  Anyways, our timing did look good, so we'll see.

Sorry about AF, Cellist. Consistency is good though, I would agree.
 

Mommy2Lexi: I usually get one positive opk then one REALLY positive opk the next day. Temps can be up and down a lot pre-O. And as someone else mentioned, if you are nursing/waking a lot then it can mess with temps a bit too. Hope you catch your O this time!

 

jips: wow, you are very patient, I totally would have caved in and tested by now ;)

marmo: hooray for O! I agree that it looks like you O'd according to your temps! What time of the day do you test for your opks? When TTC DD I couldn't catch my surge on an opk until I started testing twice a day in order to narrow down a good time to be able to see it. Good luck in your tww :)

 

Afm: My temps have stayed up and my cm dried up after O this cycle so far. I'm thrilled that I O'd earlier and all my signs lined up, no matter what happens. FF still thinks I'm 5DPO but I'm more inclined to think 4DPO.

I was born in '78, too, lol.

post #75 of 340

I've been following everybody the last few weeks, and read all the posts each day... however, I've got no time to post individual responses because I need to get myself and DS out for a walk before it starts raining... I do have to say, jips comment rings so true to what I feel like, that "getting a BFN followed by the arrival of AF is like getting slapped in the face twice.  I prefer just one day of depression, thank you very much!! """ rin

Updated!
 

naturegirl - hug2.gif  I hope everything is okay and you get the answers you need very soon!

 

carmen -  I think your chart looks really good!  I agree it looks like you O'd on CD20, as apposed to CD19.  fingersx.gif


itsybitsyspider - WELCOME!!  I'm very sorry for you loss hug2.gif  Good luck with this cycle!


boomer - I hope you get your PPAF soon!


Mommy2LexiLivy - You're temps look absolutely fine for pre-O, you want to look at the general trend of temps and not overanalyze individual temps.  I would say, if your body follows through with O, that you're very likely to see a temp spike tomorrow!  BD like crazy, lady!!
 

jips - Those all sound like VERY good signs!!  fingersx.gif


texasfarmmom - FYI, when you mention looking at your chart, I expect to also be able to see it, missy!  orngtongue.gif winky.gif But seriously, give me your chart link....I have an addiction.

 

marmo - Your timing looks VERY good!

 

AFM:  Today's temp dropped a little and FF MOVED MY O DATE...nearly TWENTY days! irked.gif   i guess it makes sense, if I had actually O'd on CD 33, I'd be 26DPO today, lol (my friend had a BFNs all the way to 32DPO, 15 dyas past expected AF, and she is due in Sept....so i'm still [stupidly] holding on to hope.  I'm not entirely positive that I O'd on this new date FF is giving me, but what do I know? (I was SO SURE that I had O'd on CD 33 because everything lined up).  I guess we'll see....

post #77 of 340

Wow! We just got back into town. Lots to catch up on. 

 

I was wondering if someone familiar with charting wouldn't mind peeking at my chart. This is my first time charting and temping. DS is a very frequent night-nurser, particularly from 3-4ish until he wakes, but we roll over and go right back to sleep. I've managed to temp within the same 45 minute time frame for the most part. I'm just curious as to the slow temp rise. Is that/can that be normal and still mean I can get preggo? I'm new to TTC since our DS was conceived just as I came off BCP. 

 

Thanks for the help, ladies! I hope we all have a very successful June.

Your chart looks GREAT! A slow rise is nothing to worry about.
post #79 of 340

Bugglette, I'm confused.  Why did you take out all those temperatures on your chart?  In any case, I agree with fertility friend that you didn't ovulate before, and I disagree with it now.  I don't think you ovulated now either.  I know that in long cycles where your temp and CM bounce around a lot, there is a theoretical possibility that you could dry up and experience higher temperatures at the same time.  I've just never seen it actually happen that somebody seems so clearly to be post-O for so long and not have it be real.

 

OdinsMommy, I agree with fertility friend about your O date.  That looks really good for a first chart.

post #80 of 340

I was born in 80, so I'm not that much younger. I really don't feel like an older mom, I feel very much so like an younger mom but probably because I am one of the youngest parents at my dd's school (she'll start 2nd grade next year).

 

I'm no help in reading charts ladies, sorry. This is my first time ever charting and it frustrates me a lot relying on a computer program as I have a much easier time reading my own body and not 2nd guessing it when FF says NO you didn't O. So I'm backing off of it, still doing it but not obsessing and relying on it as much. It's more so for the Intended parents to be able to see what's going on so they can prepare for when we have to travel for IUIs. I was telling DH how much easier it was for our own 3 when ttc and he agreed. I would say 'hey i'm ovulating (i get back pain from O and loads of EWCM) and we would dtd that night and then for the next 2 nights. I also feel loads of pressure on me as conceiving our own children was very easy and happend with the first cycle for each one. So i feel as if i have to really be on this and not screw up and conceive almost as quickly this time!

 

I forgot to temp this morning. Well i didn't forget. I was too tired and rolled over to turn my alarm off as all three of my littles decided to sleep in until 8 (they normally wake around 7 which is when my alarm is set). But I did start to get CM today. Watery, so i am thinking i'm going to O earlier. I'm just praying that it either happens before friday or after saturday as my little man's 1st bday party is on saturday (he turns 1 tomorrow!!!).

 

Keeping all you ladies in the 2ww in my thoughts, sending catch that egg vibes to those waiting to O and hugs to everyone else!!!
