...Still waiting for a positive opk over here...going round and round in my head "do we need to try to BD today? My opks are negative, but what if it is positive tonight and we don't get to BD until tomorrow afternoon (DH is working)? Maybe we should just take today off? I might not ovulate anyways..." Blah. Definitely having the "fullness" feeling too...just waiting...
Red Hot and Baby Boom ***TTC in Our 20's*** July 2011 - Page 11
Congrats NAN! I would say try to keep cool this weekend but because your Oing you gotta make it hot haha hope I didnt go to far! :)
Sila- Our bodys like to not let us know whats going on so it can keep control and drive us nuts! But rest asure that you will know soon, the waiting game stinks but unfortunatly its the only way to know for sure. So just DTD for the fun of it and hope it works :)
I used my first Dollar Tree OPK and it was dark but not as dark as the control line so Im guessing I either Oed recently or Im going to O soon DTD with DH right after the test to insure that we were covered. Im going to take another one at about 5 and see if it changes. My dr said to count the day I started bleeding from the loss as CD because its technically AF so now Im at CD 20 and I ovulate right around then but because off the loss Im not sure if everything is going to go back to normal so quickly.
NandA- Here is a post I came across a few days ago that kind of answers the blood tinged mucus question http://www.mothering.com/community/forum/thread/1321299/figuring-out-fertility-could-i-be-pregnant#post_16562171
you have a to scroll down a few...but I found it interesting! I'm sure there were already plenty of sperm waiting when your egg was released
OMG 2 more hrs of holding my pee until I can do another opk (I have found I actually can do it if I do it in the evening, which according to some thing I have read isn't the most accurate time...). O pain or my bladder exploding? Hard to tell.

Chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/SilaMarila all you will see are failed attempts to ovulate...
Where are you in your cycle: CD31
Appointments: Gastroenterologist today for follow up on my procedure last wk and maybe results from my biopsy, acupuncture tomorrow, Hematologist on Wed for follow up blood work
Symptoms if they apply: absolutely nothing
Testing: I have some opks I can use when I next start noticing fertile CM
Thoughts: Another O fail. Back to annovulation land I go. We are now in month 8 of TTC. I've only ovulated 3 times and have had 1 loss in that time. DH and I had a talk and the plan is to wait out this post miscarriage cycle and continue with acupuncture. I'm going to make an appointment when it gets closer to the 1 year mark. I'm starting to do some reading on Clomid. Though I was hoping we wouldn't have to go that route...
Where are you in your cycle: cd24, maybe 1dpo
Appointments: none right now. If I get a BFN this cycle then I am going to call my obgyn and hopefully get some help for delayed/late O and short lp.
Symptoms if they apply: none
Thoughts: Really hoping I actually Oed yesterday. My body has gone all wacky since I had DS. Hoping this cycle ends in a BFP so that I won't have to deal with TTC anymore.
Bela - It is possible that you did O yesterday. Unfortunately we will just have to wait and see, but I really hope you did! Also, according to your chart, your DH is practically a superhero I know how you feel though, I just want to get a BFP that sticks so I can be DONE TTC! I'm pretty sure we will be done with biological children after #2. I just don't think I could handle having to TTC again. But I would be open to #3 if it was a "surprise".
Where are you in your cycle: CD6
Symptoms if they apply: Nada
Testing: will start OPKs Thursday
Thoughts: If I noticed the tiniest bit of spotting this any time prior to AF this cycle, I think I’m going to call my ob/gyn and schedule the ultrasound and progesterone testing. I really think I have a progesterone issue and I don’t want to wait any longer to find out. This will be cycle #4 and I’m getting frustrated. I’ve been working on my stress levels as much as possible and the sleep issue is very slowly getting better, but I’m not sure how much longer I can go not know what the heck is going on.
Where are you in your cycle: CD22
Appointments: None as for now
Symptoms if they apply: Light cramping like AF is on her way its way to early for that so im guessing its either I didnt O when I thought I did and I am now or I just have no idea.
Testing: OPKs were dark 2 days ago, light yesterday and Im gonna give it another try today because the cramps are making me feel like im about to O
Thoughts: Im confused as to if I Oed or not. Im new with the OPKs and the first one I took looked like I either was just about to O or already did. I just checked my CM and its thick and creamy and alot of it I dont know what it means so Im gonna have to look into more. Heres a pic of my 1st OPK that wasnt as dark but dark enough to convince me I
Chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2fa1ea I kind of gave up on temping. And I've missed three BD's somewhere between now and the last one I charted.
Where are you in your cycle: CD71
Appointments: I have a physical scheduled for tomorrow which I think I may cancel since my SO has that day off and I'd really like a chance to go to the beach at some point this summer. And then I have an appointment with an endocrinologist on AUGUST 30, because my blood tests came back with high Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies, even though my TSH levels were all normal.
Symptoms if they apply: I've gotten used to the random weird feelings in my ovary area.
Testing: I've been testing with OPK's and the occasional pregnancy test about once a week.
Thoughts: My mind is a blank space.
Name: Teresa (tandn)
Where are you in your cycle: cd13, waiting to O
Appointments: None, have to skip acupuncture this week because of other engagements :( Will have a blood draw next Tuesday to make sure I did O.
Symptoms if they apply: None, lots of CM, so hoping that my body will actually O this cycle
Testing: Considering doing some OPK's, if they don't make me too crazy.
Thoughts: Spent the weekend with our friends who had their baby six weeks ago, found out today the girl who sits across from me at work had her baby Friday. Just tired of other people being successful at this while we're struggling. DH has been great, and is all about BD'ing as much as possible, so that makes me more optimistic...that is, if I actually O :) I'm hoping that the Femara does it's magic, and if I don't get a BFP, at least I have a "normal" cycle.
I have been lurking for a while because I rarely knew what was going on last cycle. Hopefully now I have somewhat of a road map. Can I be added to TTC #1? I am 29. Thanks!
Where are you in your cycle: CD 1. So a long wait ahead!
Appointments: None so far.
Symptoms if they apply: Just AF!
Testing: Not sure when to start OPKs. Last cycle I geared up to O twice and failed before finally O-ing on CD25. However that was my first cycle after Mirena IUD (so, years with no period). I don't know if this one will be similar or not. My CM was scant and hard to read last time too so it would be hard to rely on that.
Thoughts: After wacky cycles all through adolescence and hormonal BC through most of my 20s, and after reading what some are going through, I know enough to be thankful I ovulated (eventually) and had a nice LP. I'm sure waiting to O will be confusing again but we'll just have to cover our bases with plenty of BDing! I also heard somewhere on here about grapefruit juice to increase CM, can anyone speak to that?
Lots of and to all of us! We deserve it.
Where are you in your cycle: CD 23
Symptoms if they apply: Had a bunch of O symptoms. Pos OPK Saturday late morning
Testing: See above
Thoughts: Last cycle I oed on around CD 23. I am pretty sure I oed yesterday or OEd today. Upon seeing my temps from last month and checking my other symptoms today, even with my temp rise, I think I am oing today. Im thinking last month, I didnt actually O till CD 24 or so when I had a HUGE temp jump. which happened again today. When I overlayed my charts, I think that might be what is going on. Thoughts from anyone on that?
I changed my chart link so I think it needs to be updated to the link above. THANKS!
Sila: Thanks! DH is one of those guys who wants sex all the time. At least I don't have to worry about BDing during my fertile period, lol! As for TTC, this will be the last planned one for us. Anymore will just have to be surprise babies because I am not going through all this stress again.
