Even no alcohol and barely any coffee (did have a wicked caffeine withdrawal headache yesterday).  

 

Here's a question: DH has to go out of town for work frequently. How does this affect my temperature? Should I get a hot water bottle to replace him? 

 

Enjoying reading everyone's posts. Good luck everybody!

 

Your husband being gone likely won't affect your BBT much at all, though you may just have to wait and see.  In my experience, when my husband is away I end up wearing much warmer pajamas to bed because I'm cold without him.  Do whatever you need to in order to be comfortable/warm enough at night whether that's an extra blanket or warmer pj's but I would suggest not using a heat source like a hot water bottle or heated blanket.

Can I join? We had TTC'd for 5 months when I got pregnant but have now m/c. (6 weeks) I'm still brown spotting from the m/c and go in on Monday to confirm that everything came out and that I (HOPEFULLY HOPEFULLY HOPEFULLY) won't need a D&C. I have some irregular cycles and midcycle bleeding but have been having good success with Vitex. (Although, the month I got pregnant was my first month off it after taking it for 3 months.) I guess I am in the waiting to O category. I have been drinking RRLT by the bucket loads to try to make sure that I m/c completely, if that interests anyone for future reference...

Hello All,

 

I hope this is how I add to this Thread. I have been reading everyone's post and it's like I already know you. This is my first month and I am still trying to learn all the lingo involved. I had a Mirena IUD in and it was taken out the 18th of last month. I never really had a AF while I had it in. I had intermitten bleeding and spotting for two weeks after it was removed. I honestly have no idea where in my cycle I am at. I don't know if I should wait for my next AF to start charting? I have been using Ovulation test strips but I haven't seen much about them on here so I do not know if they are really accurate or not, anybody using them? I guess for right now I am waiting to O......seems like I am waiting forever and it sucks that I have no idea where I am at, but if it doesn't happen this month I guess I can really start charting next month. Looking forward to sharing this journey with all of you ladies from around the world.

Welcome Delilahbeau! The o test strips usually work well. Good luck!

AFM, I'm 11dpo and got the FAINTEST line on my pregnancy test this AM. It showed up in a couple minutes but it's so faint its hard to tell if it's pink. I'm not trusting it yet, but it's hard not to get my hopes up! It would be amazing if we got pregnant on our first try this time. (it's taken up to nine cycles in the past.). I'll test again tomorrow morning.

I can't stop staring at this line...even though it's just as likely an evap line. Do evaps show up in a couple minutes? I've never seen one except in pictures. This is driving me crazy!

Sorry to keep obsessing but who else can I bug with this? I took another test and see another barely there line. Seeing that one though makes me more sure there's color to the first one. It's also normal thickness. I'm out of town and only brought two tests so I'll have to wait until tomorrow afternoon to test again. I really hope I see a darker line tomorrow! I know the trouble with testing so early is picking up on a fertilized egg that doesn't stick. Crossing my fingers and praying!

Hi and welcome...  I have used the internet cheap Ovulation test strips, you can get a whole bunch on ebay for quite cheap.. I came off the Contraceptive patch March 16th.. began using the Ovulation tests, which really helped me know when I O'd along with cramping. Although I didn't conceive that month. I got my BFP (big fat positive) this month!!  I really do put it down to the O tests as they confirmed when was best to send the troops out to greet the egg... There inexpensive and give you an insight into when you get your LH surge so you know your due to O the day after.. Atleast you can time trying to get pregnant... Good luck..x

Thanks everyone, it feels so nice to be a part of such a nurturing community. My husband and I are trying for a boy so knowing when I O is pretty important. Don't get me wrong, we will be ecstatic about a girl or a boy, it just we have an amazing little girl right now and want to try to shift our odds for a boy. But as we all know it's in bigger hands then our own. I will try to update as much as possible keeping my fingers and toes crossed for all of us and sending baby dust to all of yougrouphug.gif
