Hi everyone - Thanks so much for the well wishes!  I made an appointment this afternoon with my acupunturist to help my bean stick!  And I emailed the home birth midwife to see when I should make an appointment.  We won't be sharing the news with anyone in real life (except for my three best girlfriends who are my rocks!) until we hear or see a heartbeat.  Frossing my fingers for everyone here for November!

Ava's Mama -  Congratulations!!!jumpers.gif

 

Moonstones - Can you please move me to "Waiting to O?"       1 month TTC, 1 PPAF, DS 15 m/o    Thanks!

post #4 of 223

I'm already on CD 12. This waiting to O has been going by quickly, thank goodness! I just ordered more OPKs (Wondfos) and a friend recently gave be a brand new CBEFM she doesn't need now that she is pregnant. She wouldn't accept any $$$ for it! I am looking forward to trying it next cycle if this isn't the lucky one for us.winky.gif

post #5 of 223

Ava joy.gifYay! So excited for you! I hope you have an uneventful and healthy 9 months!

 

texasfarmom I just got one too (I had to pay for mine though :( ) so I'm excited about using it. I hope it makes your stay here shorter!

 

Carlin - We had the same O date and your chart looks much better than mine did. Are you thinking about testing?!

 

AFM - AF started this afternoon, which is fine. I still seem to be cramp free again! I'm going to try clomid this cycle. I am not excited about having to use medical intervention, but I'm so tired of feeling like its a waste of time "trying" since I don't ovulate until closer to CD 50. I know that can't possibly be healthy. Here's hoping for a closer to normal O. So I'm Waiting to O, DS 12 m/o, TTC 7 months.

 

Thanks for taking over moonstones!

post #6 of 223

Ibreed, sorry af showed up. hug2.gif Good luck with the clomid next cycle! Hopefully it'll move your O date way, way up. I know it sucks taking that next step, but at the same time, there's a certain amount of relief that comes from knowing you are taking steps to make things work for you, rather than just feeling helpless.

 

I think I'll probably POAS in the morning if AF stays away and my temperature is high. My plan was to wait until Thursday when AF is officially late, but I always get a temp drop the day before AF shows up so I think I'll be safe.

 

post #7 of 223

Ooooh, may i join? I'm only on CD 4, and i only just started a chart on FF, still learning the ropes of charting, and i only have one temp so far and i don't think i'm adding it because i took it after getting out of bed. If anyone has any nifty ideas on how to remember to take temp first thing, i'm all ears. I just can't seem to get in the habit of it. My brain is mush generally, but first thing in the morning it is ridiculous!

 

BFP wishes to all TTC this month!!

 

ps. a little background info on the newbie here:

I just turned 40, married with one child - DD 21 months (amazing home birth) - still breastfeeding on demand day and night - cosleeping, on 4th PP AF, 3 of which have been my usual 28 day cycle. 2nd cycle TTC this month. If there is any other info i should add, please let me know! Are we supposed to put links to our charts in our profiles?

 

Thanks!

post #8 of 223

Ava's Mama! I almost missed your BFP! SO happy for you!!! joy.gif

 

 

Afm: We got home last night after being away for 2 weeks so I've probably missed a lot here and won't attempt personals. I didn't temp or use opks/monitor this past cycle because we weren't trying but I did record cm and other signs. I'd guess I O'd around cd21 give or take a day. I was hoping for an earlier O again but oh well. We hope to try again next cycle...I'll probably O around the end of November. I'd love to have a summer baby! Oh, and I've decided to go through with the hsg in a few weeks just to cover all my bases and give me piece of mind that I've done all testing.

Carlin -- I cannot wait to hear about your test tomorrow.  Your chart looks so pretty, and I would be very surprised if you get a BFN. I have a feeling we'll be unleashing a lot of these guys for you tomorrow: joy.gif!

 

Mittens -- I've added you to the group roster! 

 

Ibreed -- so sorry to hear AF showed up :( I did a cycle of clomid when I was TTC DD.  Long cycles can get so frustrating, so hopefully the clomid will at least help move your O!  I got pregnant the cycle after my clomid cycle, so maybe it just added the extra boost!  

 

Texasfarmom -- I love my CBEFM! I used it to conceive my DD, and I'm using it now.  It's a great alternative to temping, I think. 

 

AFM -- I just took DH to the airport, he's off to London for work for a week.  And thankfully, I O'd before he left.  I think I'm about 2dpo now.  Now just on to the waiting! 

 

 

post #10 of 223

Looking forward to some testing results!! BTW - what is CBEFM?

 

Mittens - I would look into Lunaception. It moved my O day up 1 day (as it was supposed to) and we also conceived this month. It's easy and something to think about! I personally leave my thermometer on my night stand and I also am the one to wake up DH for work every morning. So, when the alarm goes off, I pop the thermometer in my mouth, put it back down on the nightstand and read it when DS and I get up for the day a couple of hours later! Then it's at the same time every day. OR - if DS gives me at least a 6 hour stretch, I'll take it then since I'm awake and nursing. I've noticed that my temps are typically the same between 4-6am unless I don't fall back asleep.

 

AFM - Only 3 more days and I'll be at 18dpo with temps above my coverline. For some reason, this date gives me a bit more peace of mind that everything's going according to plan! Not that it matters too much, but will you please update my info to 3PPAF, TTC 2 months, and DS is 10 m/o? Thanks!

 

Big cleaning day today - motivated for some reason! We'll see how long it lasts. biggrinbounce.gif

post #11 of 223

Well, the good new first... I POAS this morning and BFP! Except that it's actually not all that Big or Fat. I'm pretty nervous about how light the line is at 15 dpo and that my temperature dropped quite a bit this morning. Please send all the sticky bean vibes you can spare my way! I think I'll hang out here for a few more days before moving to graduates if no one minds.

 

Sending fertile vibes to everyone! I'll come back and do personals later!

 

post #12 of 223

Carlin!!  Congrats!  My BFP was light on 14 DPO and then I got a blazing "pregnant" on the digital the next day.  I am hanging out for a while too, I really want to feel some symptoms soon.  I mae my midwife appointment and it isn't until December 20, so I may go insane until then...

post #13 of 223

Carlin - Congrats! joy.gif Sending as many sticky bean vibes your way as possible! Where does one graduate to anyway?

Congratulations, Carlin! (I'll whisper for you, okay? wink1.gif
post #15 of 223

Hi, can I join in?

 

DH and I are 'sort-of' trying for our third... his second. I feel a little worried, because I got pregnant so easily with both #1 and #2 (without trying, actually). We've been sort of trying on and off for almost a year, and nothing. Not even a hint on my chart.

 

I am still breastfeeding our 2.5 year old about 2-5 times a day. But I got my period back about 6 weeks after she was born. Ugh. Anyway, I got checked out a few months ago - not for fertility issues, but just general sexual health (my yearly exam) and everything was fine. I've had the same health care provider for about three and a half years and I really like and trust her.

 

So... is there a place where I can find all the lingo decoded for me? Basically all I know is DPO! Also, how do I share my chart?

what does this mean: CBEFM?

Welcome BabyMae! I hope your stay here is short! CBEFM is Clear Blue Easy Fertility Monitor. I think there's a list of acronyms somewhere, does anyone know where?

 

Thanks for the congrats  and sticky bean vibes Wendy and Geigerin. I'm trying to just keep an even keel on this one and not worry too much about something I can't control but between the super light line, the temp drop and the fact that all the symptoms I had yesterday seem to have disappeared, I'm having trouble being optimistic. I think I'm going to try to wait until Friday to test again and just hope the line gets darker and my temperatures don't keep dropping.

post #18 of 223
Hi there! Can I join?

I have a 17mo DD who is nursing some 2-4 times a day, I think, and mostly not at night anymore. I got a BFP the first cycle trying, but had an early loss, so now we're 3 months in to TTC and so far 2 PPAF.

I'm still not 100% sure we're going to go for it this month or if we're going to wait. I'm still doing OPK's, but have been pretty lax about temping. I'm waiting to O (on cycle day 21, but it was CD 31 last time).

Thanks!

Edited to add my chart: here
post #19 of 223

Thanks Moonstones!

 

Big congrats on your BFP, Carlin!!!

 

Wendy, I was just doing a little reading on Lunaception, which i had never heard of before, and it sounds really interesting! Thank you for mentioning it.

 

Everyone: Wondered if people could share what makes the clear blue easy fertility monitor so much better than other monitors? I have never used them, are they the same as OPKs? I have never used any of them and am really excited to start, along with charting. I just hope i don't end up finding out that i'm not fertile at all! I did just turn 40........

 

On which CD before ovulation does one start using the fertility monitors?

 

Thanks!!

crystal_buffaloe and babymae Welcome to our thread!

 

Wendy I don't check CP because of the ick factor. I'm sure that is weird, but...I"m just not interested in...that! ROTFLMAO.gifI guess one graduates to a DDC (due date club) and is moved to "Success Stories" on the first post of this thread.

 

Ibreed We'll have to share how using the CBEFM goes with each other! winky.gif

 

Carlin Yay for you!! Keep us updated on how things progress. I hope this is it!!

 

moonstones Glad you Oed before DH left! FX for you while in the TWW!

 

Carmen What is the hsg?
