anyalily, thanks for the new thread. Can you please move me back to waiting to O? Thanks.
Good luck this week, everyone!
Well, now the EWCM seems to be gone, but I'm getting lots of watery discharge when I check. But only internally, and I have to kind of push it out (sorry, TMI!) Also my cervix is still open, but seems firmer and slightly lower than it was a day or two ago.So I just don't know what to think. I wonder if my body is still adjusting from the Mirena that I had removed two months ago? Who knows if I'm even ovulating? I feel like I didn't have very much CM at all this cycle. I did get some EWCM on the 3rd and 4th, but very small quantities. I seem to remember having a lot more of it in the past.
Originally I decided not to temp, because I thought it might help me be more zen and less obsessed about this process. I figured that if I don't catch an egg after a few cycles then I'd start to temp. But now I'm feeling like the lack of info to confirm an O is actually having the opposite effect and I'm thinking about it all more than I should be! LOL frustrating.
Don't mind me. Just over here, obsessing and venting.
We've been BDing up the Wazoo! August 30th, 31st, Sept 1st, and 2nd. Then DD totally refused to cooperate on the 3rd (the day that FF thinks I O'd, based on a 28 day cycle) but then we were back at it again on the 4th. Today we were going to BD, but we're both just exhausted from work schedules and life, so we haven't. Might try again tomorrow if I have any kind of promising CM in the morning. But I kind of feel like I either already ovulated, or won't this month at all.
I'm probably going to start testing in a week, just because I have a huge stash of cheap early detection tests that I bought last month. I'm TOTALLY failing at playing this whole TTC thing cool. DD was a bit of a WHOOPS baby, so this is my first go at actually PLANNING, and I'm already a basket case!
I was so angry the day I realised this! All those years of being so careful...
Soooo this Stevi! What freakin waste! I felt so liberated 16 months ago when we decided to finally ttc. That has definitely been replaced by worry and frustration.
BTW Hi there I'd like to join. Anyalily can you put me in waiting to O, please.
Dakipode, I moved you.
Kitteh, it sounds to me like you either just O'd or are Oing now, if you had EWCM that is drying up and turning watery. I never got good at peak days since I learned FAM trying to prevent, not conceive... I would ignore cervical position if you are newish to it, because it is just sort of a secondary confirmation. It can sort of be all over the place and it is a relative description, high, low, medium, etc. I would proceed as if you are still fertile and you could even temp now just to see if you have high temps or low temps, which would indicate which part of your cycle you are in. I forget, have you ever temped? Do you have an idea of your pre-O and post-O temps? It may give you the little extra info you are craving.
AFM - I think I am Oing today, or at least gearing up. I think it is CD11, maybe 12. My calendar is at home. I am having MS and just sort of feelin' it. Temps are still low. I am loving having a little more info this cycle. At least I will know when to expect AF so I don't have to PO all my S's... I got my Wondfo's in the mail the other day, never tried them before. I am excited for the 2WW. My cousin and her partner just did their first IVF try this month and they are already in the 2WW. It would be so fun to be pregnant with them, but I am trying not to get my hopes too high.
A2E, I remember you, hi! That sounds promising. Keep us posted. I hope you don't have to hit that date without a sticky bean in there!
