post #121 of 788
Congrada AUvetmom and mamapegon!!! Love it!! God bless you and your babies!!

Afm: I'm having a rough day! Just want to curl up and hide! Still upset last month was negative and I'm getting ready to O. I'm so unuse to all of these emotions! I had an iud in for years, these hormonal mood swings and highs/lows are really throwing me off! I'm scared, happy, and insecure all at once! I hate feeling this way!!!

Cindy-lu- I agree with how you're feeling! It's such a new, somewhat scary, and strange experience. Thank goodness for people here who understand smile.gif

 

I'm ovulating now, so my husband and I are getting busy a lot.. and baby dust sent this way is appreciated! I'm already anxious to start testing!

Starfish...I just wanted to pop in and say how sorry I am that you also lost your baby last month. *hugs* I'm right there with you saying I can't do this again...

I'm taking this month off, because I won't see my new dr until after I O, but I'm still subbed, and keeping up with all of you. I'll be back next month, unless I find out something on the 19th that causes me to need to wait longer smile.gif

I thought a positive OPK means you will ovulate between 12 and 36 hours, not 24-36? According to my chart I ovulated on the actual day I got my positive OPK, so the 12 hours was probably right for me. I guess no one can say for sure unless you are testing every hour, then the first hour you get a positive would be when you count the hours from.... but either that same day or the day after I would say for Ovulating.

 

AFM AF arrived 3 days ago so I'm out this cycle, and we are not TTC during this new cycle as it's too busy around the holidays period and O will be between Christmas and New Years. So it will be a very frustrating cycle for me not being able to try but I will keep charting and trying to keep healthy ready to try again from January.

Samy23- I'm a little confused about exactly when ovulation actually happens as well... I got a positive OPK with Wondfo with my fmu yesterday, and using the same urine my Clearblue OPK was a big ol' negative confused.gif. Then I tested again with both last night, and both were positive. So, not sure what that's all about, but I'm thinking that Wondfo picked up the LH surge earlier than the Clearblue. But anyway, I'm still a little unsure of how long/when exactly I'll ovulate, sooo my plan is to BD daily for like a week lol. Waiting through the holidays will be tough, but I'm sure it'll work out for the best for you :) It sounds like you and your husband have a lot going on, and adding the stress of ttc would take any fun out of it! Have a great holiday!!

 

Cindy-lu-- I'm not sure what CD I'm on...... I'm new to all this, and my last period was really short and weird from stopping my birth control. If I'm correct, you start the count from the last day of AF? Which would put me at CD...... 17 or 18??? But that seems really high. Is that normal? But like I said, AF was really thrown off from stopping the pill, and only lasted 2 days/came early.

 

I'm hoping to get a BFP in time for Christmas.. Last night my husband found my positive Wondfo OPK, and he got soo excited because he thought it was a pregnancy test. I had to teach him the difference between the two haha, poor guy was really disappointed.

 

Good luck to everyone!!

Dahlia- CD1 is the first day of AF smile.gif good luck!

AFM- temp stayed up this morning so I think I'm 2DPO. I'm quite concerned because I had no EWCM at all. I had quite a bit of watery CM though. And we did BD on the day I ovulated. If I don't get a BFP this month any suggestions on how to increase EWCM. Anyone else have this issue? I have read taking mucinex and evening primrose oil can help? I'm trying not to read too much into it, but it is definitely a concern :/

Mamamash- If you google No ewcm, you'll see that PLENTY of women get pg without it, watery cm is also fertile.  Hooray for being 2 days in!

Also, fertility friend.com has a chart search that you can select no ewcm and see pregnancy charts.

Thanks Emily! That's a bit of a relief smile.gif I will be going and searching the galleries.
post #132 of 788
Hi all.

Emily11megan, congrats!

Mamamash we are the same dpo. Crossing fingers and sending wishes to Santa for both of us wink1.gif
post #133 of 788

Thanks everyone!

 

 

Mamamash, I switched to green tea instead of coffee last cycle, and then this cycle I had more ewcm than ever before in my life. Green tea supposedly increases cm.... might have been a coincidence, but I am convinced enough that I'll use it in the future when ttc.

post #134 of 788
Oh wow, good to know mamapigeon. I am a daily coffee drinker. (Which I plan to stop if I get a BFP). If I don't get my BFP this month I will switch to green tea next cycle smile.gif

I posted this in a different forum but wanted to post it here!

Ladies,

Most of us scowler the Internet for pregnancy info. On this web page is a neat video. Just wanted to share.

mamapigeon- good to know about green tea! I noticed that my CM wasn't really EW either, it is more watery. I drink chai tea daily, but will switch to green!

post #137 of 788
Alright, temp stayed up still. I'm now convinced I ovulated. It took 3 days for me to believe it. It is my first month charting so it's still pretty foreign to me smile.gif I'm hoping all the last minute Christmas stuff and the after Christmas cleaning and calm will keep me semi sane during this TWW.

How is everyone else?? smile.gif
post #138 of 788

I'm feeling nervous. I'm excited and scared at the same time, because I'm so hopeful that we'll be pregnant this cycle, but so scared of a bfn.. My husband and I just got back from a baby shower for my sister in law, and everyone was joking about it being my turn next. No one knows that we're trying, and it just put me so on edge. I just wanted to say "well little do you know, it might be sooner than you think". But I just pretended like we aren't "ready" for kids... such a lie!

 

I know I'm going to be an early tester already. Good thing I got about 100 Wondfos lol orngtongue.gif It's going to be hard for me to even wait the week! I'm glad I have chiropractor appts through the week to help me loosen up :)

 

How are you all doing with your waits? How do you deal with the anxiety?

post #139 of 788
Dahlia- how many DPO are you? Or do you think you are? Trying for your first is so exciting!! I hope you get a BFP this month! I got my BFP with my DD our first month trying smile.gif

AFM- I think I get some killer post ovulation symptoms. Last month my lower back was killing me. I was nauseated. Tired. Etc. and already this month 4DPO my sciatic nerve has been acting up (I could barely walk somedays with my pregnancy with DD). Sooo I absolutely cannot allow myself to symptom spot since post O symptoms as early pregnancy symptoms are basically the same.
post #140 of 788

Mamamash- I'm 1 or 2 DPO. So it can definitely start testing now, right!?? wink1.gif haha I kid. Thanks so much for the good luck wishes! It would be nice to get a bfp around Christmas!

 

I'm going to try really hard not to symptom spot, but we'll see how that goes. I'm so impatient!

 

 

Good luck everyone!
