So, honestly, I'm trying to do this whole charting thing, but I'm still not really sure what's going on.  I'm still fine with the waiting to know thing, though I don't know that I've actually o'd yet after all? Oh well. I took the spotting I had to be O because it seemed like that the month before too, but it could have been irritated cervix from BD. I guess by the end of the month I will know, either way.  I'm not sure that I have the best thermometer for the job though it does .1 increments. Any thermometer recommendations? I ordered some OPKs which could deem useless if I was successful this month, but I wanted to have them to use if it didn't happen so, I could use them along side temping and CM to get a better idea.

 

Beautiful BFPs Kitteh and "yey!" for "graduating" anyalily.

Can you add me to the two week wait:  http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1ef585

 
I used a BBT that I bought from Target last time I was in America.  I've been using it for over 4 months and it seems pretty accurate (to two decimal places) and consistent in its temperature readings.  I've never suspected it to be faulty.  On the other hand, I have a glass BBT that I bought off Amazon that doesn't seem to work as well and takes FOREVER.  I also chart on TCOYF and that site only takes tenths of a degree and I've just been doing that up until this month.
 
My SIL is also in her TWW now which is a little interesting...

Welcome Nerissav. I hope this is your month! Nice chart! How long have you been trying? My cousin is also in her 2WW, and I am hoping we get to be due month buddies. (I got a BFP a few days ago!)

 

DayisComing, I think any thermometer that is consistent and gives tenths of degrees will do the job. The rest is just preference. My fave has a flexible tip  making it easier to hold onto and it beeps while it is temping if it in the right place.

 

AFM, this is the first morning I did not POAS. I decided to start POAS every other day until I am out of Wondfos. I am trying not to obsess. I just want this to be sticky and healthy! No strong symptoms, except needing naps and not wanting to wear my bra for long.

I have a temple thermometer that does the 10ths of a degree thing. Supposedly greatly accurate or something, but sometimes it gives weird readings. So, I don't know if I can trust it. I'll keep using it for now and see how things go this month.

 

I totally get the POAS after the bfp thing. And sometimes it can be a helpful indicator that things are progressing(or not) because last month I didn't get darker lines after the first couple days and then the pregnancy ended.

I think your every other day plan sounds good.

 

Nerissav: your chart looks nice. Couldn't BD that many times personally, but don't know if you have kids yet or how many if you do. I know before kids that would have been a piece of cake. :P
I just noticed you are in Denmark. My hubby went exchange there in university for a year. He's originally from Romania. :) He loved it there and we even attempted a couple year back to get him a job there, but interviews didn't go through.

Can I be Added to waiting to o? Af started this morning....

post #7 of 78

Hi- moving here from 2WW thread.    Can I also be added to Waiting to O

AFM: I am pretty new to MDC, and definitely do not know all the acronyms :) My DS just turned 2 in August and DH and decided it would be a good time to start trying again. This was our first month. I temped and charted and may have drove myself crazy during the 2ww. Pretty disappointed when AF showed up on Friday, but eager to try again!

post #8 of 78

DayIsComing I just bought a cheap BBT digital from CVS for like $10. I tried it orally but am a bit of a mouth breather at night and I noticed that my temps varied, I think because of that. So I started temping vaginally and it made a big difference. I also didn't really try to temp at the same time at first, which was a mistake. Once I started waking at 6:30 every morning to temp my chart became much clearer. Have you had any kind of temp spike at all? What CD are you on? I agree that using all three methods--CM, OPKs, and temping--creates the clearest picture. I probably wouldn't have used OPKs if they hadn't been sent to me instead of the HPTs that I had ordered. But the time that I charted all three was the month I got my BFP. Hopefully you will get yours soon!!

 

Speaking of BFPs, today I finally got a truly dark pink line, nearly as dark as the control, at 13dpo. So I guess I can believe it now, lol. I hear what you're saying, anyalily, about not obsessing by POAS every day, though it is oddly comforting.  I'm going to save the rest of my wondfos and the 2 FRERs I have (one is a digi, I kinda want to use that one just because I never have) for down the road, in case I have any spotting or something and want to reassure myself,  I guess? Or maybe I'll give them to my friend who is TTC. They expire in 2014 and I don't plan to be trying again that soon!

 

So I guess you can graduate me, anyalily! Good luck and baby dust to the rest of you!

Congrats on your BFP!  This is our official first cycle trying.  I'm hoping that we get lucky out of the gate, but I don't know how likely that will be.

The temple thing will not work very well I don't think.  I use an oral one but I know that many women swear by vaginal.  

 

Actually, my daughter will be 4 in a couple of weeks.  I kind of feel like we aren't doing it enough sometimes but with his physical job and it taking 4 hours a day on the bus for me to drop off and pick up my daughter at school, we get tired.  I think when I was younger it was way more often!  I guess I'm still relatively young at 25.  

 

It is really hard for foreigners to get jobs in Denmark, especially if they don't have fluency in Danish.  I do like living here, but it was a huge shock coming from America.

Here's my chart... http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/dayiscoming

I'm not really sure about the mucus. I think I was right, but yeah. I've been trying to temp at the same time or close to it as I've read that was important.

post #11 of 78

Hmm, it definitely doesn't look like you have Od yet, but I am certainly not a charting expert. I don't see a noticeable thermal shift, though. Maybe you are still gearing up to O? That would be my guess. Do you have any OPKs right now? If so, I would try one this afternoon or next and just see what it shows.

post #12 of 78

Don't have OPKs yet. They should be here in a couple days. I was thinking that I probably haven't o'd yet either after seeing a lack of thermal shift. Thanks for taking a look. I was thinking that the spotting might have been due to Oing like I think it might have been last month, but now I don't think so.

Congrats again Kitteh and anyalily...so happy for you 2! joy.gif

 

dayiscoming- I'm with Kitteh - I don't think you've o'd yet. Sure looks like your about to though. Good luck! wink1.gif

 

Welcome nerrisav and jillgayle!  Hope you both get a bfp this cycle!

 

Inlove2009- Big hugs hug2.gif sorry af came. Get some chocolate...or whatever makes you feel better.....

 

AFM- CD 9 and slowly recovering from the flu today. Got hit with it yesterday pretty hard but was finally able to pull myself up off the couch this afternoon....

Hi all! I'd love to join you. I'm currently in the TWW, about 9dpo according to my calculations, which could be far off because I don't use any charting/temping/OPKs. :) This is my first month TTC, it will be our first baby. We had one pregnancy in June, ended in m/c (D&C) in Aug. So fingers crossed all goes well this month!!

 

And congratulations to Kitteh & any other BFPs!

post #15 of 78
I'm in my 2WW too. 5 DPO. We've been TTC since May. My body took a few months to ovulate after going off BC but it seems to be back to normal now smile.gif My hubby works away from home so getting our timing can be tough but it worked out for us this month! So fingers crossed for a BFP.

Welcome sarahl918 and countrymama02! i have added you both to the 2WW. Luck and blessings!

post #17 of 78
Me again! I graduated in August and disappeared, but had miscarriage two in September and now I'm waiting to be ready but I'm 8 days past ovulation and feel pregnant. Sigh. Its hard to suddenly not want to be after trying so long. I don't want to be on this roller coaster again for a while. I'll update when my 2 week "wait" is over. I'm so emotional, lots of pelvis pressure and sore breasts, I hope its just my cycle coming back. I don't like feeling afraid of what my body will do. Anyway, posted it here because there's no one II know personally that I want to tell this to. Haven't even told my husband my symptoms because he's worn out with all this, too.

Anyway, its nice to see all the new graduates! Congrats anyalily and everyone!

LittleKind:

I'm sorry you are going through this. I hope things work out well for you no matter what happens. hug2.gif

I understand your feelings. I also had a recent very early MC and it is really scary to think it could happen again. It can be quite an emotional roller coaster as you said.

LittleKind, I am sending you prayers for a short stay and a healthy pregnancy.

 

I tested again this morning on a Wondfo (my last), and I hoped to see a darker line. However, it was a slightly lighter line than two days ago. I did drink a full glass of water before bed but it was 6 hours FMU. I hope this doesn't mean anything? Any experience with this sort of thing? Does it always mean M/C?

Anya, is there a chance the tests could be slightly defective? I have heard stories about how each test varies and sometimes you can get a bad batch, or that one will not come up as darker but the rest will? Either way I hope that it is just a fluke and you are still as pregnant as ever! :) Thank you for adding me to the list, by the way!
