January 2013 TWW Thread - Page 27

post #521 of 986

Sorry I don't have time to respond to everyone this morning. The 3 month old I nanny is coming in an hour and my sister is coming with her two kids this afternoon to stay the weekend. Lots of cleaning to do!

 

Got another BFN this morning. Last night I was so nauseated that I couldn't find anything to eat that didn't make me gag. Crazy vivid dreams last night (a common preg symptom for me) and still nauseated this morning. AF still hasn't come, which officially makes this the longest LP I've had since having DS! So that's something. Not sure if I am 11 or 12DPO, but very frustrated that I'm not getting a BFP by now if I am preg! Been feeling symptoms since 7DPO and they've only gotten stronger every day. I also had .3 degree temp rise today. Staying cautiously hopeful!

 

AutumnLove- Good luck to you! Sounds promising!

Katie, only 2 are brothers. it's 3 families who are friends and got a nanny together.it is exhausting! but they're good boys and such nice families.

Angel, fingers crossed tight for you!!

sparkle I hope you get your temp spike soon! I like temping but at the same time I feel like it's making me stress about my temperature and what everything means.

my temperature went down slightly this morning but not so much that I'm worried I didn't O... plus I doubt that the clearblue digital ovulation test was wrong, on top of the wondfos. I have still been testing with opks just to ease my mind, and got a rather dark wondfo this morning, but it was also a different color ink than normal. it was very purple immediately, not just dry, while the others were typically pink then dried purple.

Amy Sounds very promising!! Fx for you!!

 

Thanks Dahlia!! I am so hopeful for you hug.gif All your signs sound right on target for catching that egg thumb.gif And I hear you, more info is great but also easy to obsess over.

 

Thanks for the support and well wishes. I expect to or think I may have O'd today and hope to see a big temp spike tomorrow. Looking forward to officially entering the TWW. I feel like I am armed with so much more information this month!! And I am so very excited to O on CD 15 (rather than CD 10 or 11). This feels so amazing! This is my first TWW that I have felt like I have a really, really good chance (even though I always convince myself I am pregnant through dilligent symptom spotting!). And yes, twins actually DO run in my family. We shall see!!

post #524 of 986

Wow, Dahlia. That sounds crazy but fun. Before DH decided to stay home we were thinking about nanny sharing. I think it's a great way to do things. Although crazy for you, I'm sure! I bet you'll see that temp go up tomorrow. Sounds like everything is on track for you!

 

Sparkle, so excited we are cycle buddies! I also have such positive feelings about this cycle! I am ov'ing on CD 16 (maybe 17 but likely 16 I think) which is early for me and exciting as well. I feel like I am doing everything possible to set up for a sticky bean this cycle! I guess that means I am set up for more disappointment if we don't get a BFP but I'll worry about that later. LOL.  The thought of twins scares the you-know-what out of me but part of me thinks it would be so much fun!!

 

Amy - definitely stay hopeful! Its not over until it's over! 

 

I have decided I'm not testing until 2/2. AF should definitely be here by then. Although I'm going to do the progesterone which can delay AF even without a BFP. But last time I was on it I got AF anyhow, even while I was taking it, when I didn't get a BFP. So hopefully if I wait it out I'll see that double line. Seems like a long wait now but I'm trying to remind myself how bad the early BFN feels for me. We'll see if I can stick with that! 

 

ETA: I am officially a crazy TTCer. Ok, I was before but now really! I haven't been able to temp at the same time everyday because of my weird schedule and the kiddos so I just used a temp adjuster and fixed all of them to the same time so I would get rid of the open circles and make my chart look prettier. I know you're not supposed to do that but it was driving me crazy and I knew FF would never give me CH with that. So I adjusted. Whoops! It does look prettier. And it confirms the temp dip I thought I had today. Heehee. orngbiggrin.gif Also in the spirit of obsessing, would you put the 1am pos OPK on yesterday's chart or today's? I know it doesn't matter (I mean, the chart doesn't actually change the outcome!) but I'm not sure what to do!

post #525 of 986
part of me wants to just call the day my temp dipped my O day, but I also feel like I should wait for the crosshairs to show up on my FF chart. waiting is making me anxious that I didn't O though haha. I'll be crazy by the time I get pregnant lol!
post #526 of 986

I totally hear you, Dahlia! See my edited post above. LOL. I hate waiting for CH. Sometimes I force it to put up a line and then take it away a few days later to see if it agrees. There's lots of playing around to be done with FF! 

post #527 of 986
how long have you been charting Katie? I'm very new to it
post #528 of 986

About a year total, I guess between TTCing DD and when I got off BCP this time. I'm a pretty science-y person so I really like it. When I first started I studied a lot of charts and it gets pretty easy to see the patterns after a bit. 

post #529 of 986

Sparkle, thanks the posting the chart.  The first one you posted was very helpful; I couldn't find anything as detailed during my quick Google search.  My $store tests say they are sensitive to 25 IU hCG so according to your chart I certainly can remain hopeful despite a BFN this morning!  Still no AF here yet so I grow more optimistic by the hour :-)

But to brighten the sad news my most favourite cousin is going to be a father in August! Which I am absolutely over the moon about.
As for me, I'm just tired, not sleeping very well and having the most vivid dreams! Twinges have slowed down but still feeling positive!
I hope you all have a wonderful day and have lovely things planned for your weekends! :-)
Your symptoms sound promising and I'm very sorry about your grandma greensad.gif

Dahlia - Yep, if you get 2 more days of high temps then ov was the day before the temp spike. I'll take a look at your chart in a second. winky.gif  Your nanny job sounds so intense! Are those kids all in the same family or is it more than one family? You must be exhausted at the end of the day! LOL!

Sparkle - Weird about the neg OPK today! That's frustrating. irked.gif  I'm jealous your daughter wants to sleep in, though! That never happens at my house! ROTFLMAO.gif Oh and ov pains for me are usually referred. I think they are usually just after ov for me and are a generalized lower abd cramping, I think it's due to the bit of blood and fluid that gets released when the egg pops...

jjh - What did your OPK show??

Danielle - The waiting is the worst!! How much longer until you test? Do you have a busy weekend planned to make time pass faster?

AFM - Tested at 1am and POS OPK!!! Whoo hoo! Darker than the control, even. Woke DH up so we could take advantage. biggrinbounce.gif  But the type A in me doesn't know if I should put the pos on yesterday or today's charting. LOL. The things I worry about! So I'm hoping ov will be later today or likely early tomorrow. Yay! 
OPK was still negative but I have a few days according to my tracker. We shall see!

4 dpo- 9dpo--- cramping on left ovary-- comes and goes, feels like ovulation pain (which I get every month)
7 dpo- twinges in uterus
8 dpo- stinging pain in boobs, never had pain in my boobs even with AF
9 dpo- cramping as if gassy, no boob pain, hungrier than normal

I miscarried at 8 weeks 4.5 years ago.... no pregnancy symptoms. 
I find it hard to tell the difference between AF coming and pregnancy symptoms. Normally I don't get cramps till 2-3 days before AF but I've been having them much longer this month. I haven't monitored my temperature at all... figured it'd be too late to make a comparison. My guy is dying for a baby, but I'm not sure I'm ready for one just yet. I just need some positive feedback and advice on how to distract myself from the rest of the TWW. 
Welcome! I think a lot of us have the issue of differentiating between being pregnant and AF so don't feel alone! Good luck smile.gif

Angel- yay for maybe being late!
post #531 of 986
Ok so I posted this in the wrong place the first time... Embarrassing! Anywho I want to see if anyone else is a nerd like me lol! So I took my handful of baby making vitamins (I don't take any that aren't meant to help me conceive... I'm special haha!) and my mucinex (has anyone else been taking it? I'd like to hear results!) while I was waiting for my O test to finish up doing its thing. When I went back into the bathroom it definitely looked like the line is getting darker but I can't be fully sure because I haven't photographed since I'm not expecting O for a couple more days. Anywho, since I've never used wondfos before I decided to do an experiment to see what their evap looks like. I filled a cup up with water and my line is definitely darker than the evap! I totally did a happy dance in the bathroom because the fact that I may ovulate this month is HUGE for me! Has anyone else experimented like this? I feel like a dork haha
post #532 of 986
Hi ladies! Been a while since I said hello and checked in. Sounds like everyone is doing well and many of you have entered to TWW. Good luck and sending lots of Baby dust your way!

AFM- Still no sign of AF. CD 34 which is so unlike me. I wish my body wouldn't play such a cruel joke on me 😬! Still having lots of lotiony cm and those low stomach twitches so I don't know what to think. On a better note, had a talk with DH and he is on board for TTC #3. If AF would ever arrive, I am going to start charting again and use this time to lose a little weight and get my cycles figured out. Here's to a good weekend for everyone!!
post #533 of 986
I'll try to get on here and respond to everyone later! I feel like I've been slacking! I need your guys' opinions though. judging by my chart do you think it's pretty safe to assume I ovulated and skip bd tonight? LOL my husband and I are soooo tired out but don't want to miss an opportunity if it means we could conceive.
post #534 of 986

Thanks dahlia sparklemama and katiecornflakes and everyone else! Unfortunatley it looks like I took the meds that would dry upgreensad.gif. Hopefully it doesnt count me out this month. It does make me wish I had done opk strips so I would have known for sure when/if I ovulated. I am still crossing my fingers hoping it will work out.

forgot to attach my chart, whoops
post #536 of 986
I'm sorry wildgreen greensad.gif I have my fingers crossed though that you guys caught the egg anyway!!
post #537 of 986

Woke up to a pos OPK yesterday smile.gif, lots of EWCM. Luckily DP's off day so we dtd twice. I've been downing green tea and laying off the coffee, and I think that made a difference. Hopefully that's good enough to make a baby, if not guess we'll try again next month. We also BD a couple nights before I got my +. I feel so zen right now but I know I'm going to get crazy later in the month. Going to wait until Feb 1st to test. See you ladies later!

 

Lots of Babydust! dust.gif

I'm a diet coke-aholic. I have tried to quit for baby making but I just can't! I'm seriously a horrible person without it lol! Kudos to you!
post #539 of 986

jj haha yeah we have been busy. I just hope we timed it all right :)

post #540 of 986
Oh my goodness! I must have been busy. Almost 200 posts behind. I can't even read them all. I've been so busy with the move. Sounds like everyone is doing great...everyone is still obsessing. I love it. I've just been hanging out. Doctors appt on Monday to see if the clomid is working. Almost 6 weeks since the Leep. Hoping to get the all clear. If this cycle doesn't work it definitely won't be because we didn't DTD enough lol.
