The One Thread July 31- Aug 6 - Page 2

post #21 of 221
Morning, everyone! I'm on AF watch here now. Hoping it will stay away as long as possible, because the later this new cycle starts, the more likely it is that I'll be with DH in time for O. Based on the last round of detailed charting I did, it's due about Wed, but I'm : hoping that my LP will be a day (or dare I hope 2?) longer now that DS is fully weaned. I'm pretty sure I'm O'ing earlier in my cycle than I was last year, too, which would be nice every month except this one!

Outofmymindyo: Sorry about AF! If your LP is normal, you would have O'ed between July 13 - 17.

NYCVeg: Yuck. I'm sorry it's turning into a full-blown infection! Hopefully it won't affect TTC this month.

eorr: : : That's awesome! Congratulations! Enjoy your freedom! When do you defend?

Cd 15

OOh this is going to be a big testing week! :

Still hangin' out waiting for my mucus and waiting to O. Thanks to the 35 day cyclers for answering my question. Now I won't be so obsessed about O until later on this week

Wow eorr! Congratulations! After the hell that was my Master's I told dh to slap me if I ever talked about doing a Ph. D... I do have to stifle that teeny tiiny voice in the back of my head that sometimes mumbles something about it :LOL

Hope this is a good week for everyone

hi everybody! This sure is an exciting thread this week already!!!

NYCVeg-I started to feel a yeast infection yesterday and I tried something that worked for me. I have some pro-biotic powder and I mixed it with a little water to make a paste and then I put it on externally and internally. I happen to have a bottle of powder but breaking open a regular capsule would work too. I know you've tried everything but just thought I'd mention this in case it might help.

heather, great thread!

eorr--congrats on turning your thesis in. what's your subject matter?

i'm on cd 14 here and ff says my average o is on cd 15, so we'll see what happens, though i really haven't noticed much fertile cm. i haven't really been looking too hard for it, though. and i've forgotten to use the opks every day that i meant to this cycle. i've just been so busy with moving and finishing up the semester i guess. maybe that's a good thing, though. as long as i catch my thermal shift and we're gio on a regular basis, less obsessing is good, right??

zion, i'm really excited for you!

:rollercoaster (!)

I did against my better judgement test and it was a :- I dont know why I did, I am only 10 dpo and have no symptoms. It feels just like every other month.
post #28 of 221
Heather, its so hard not to test I was determined not to test until Af is late this cycle but I am only 8dpo and already wanting to test. Your chart looks great though : for you
post #29 of 221
celesterra-so how about we both wait til wednesday or thursday to officially test. First testing party of August!!! Anyone else want to join??

Any of you who have been pregnant before did you have any bleeding or spotting before your bfp??? what other early preg symptoms did you have?? i want to know what to look for. I know about the standard breast tenderness but what else??
post #30 of 221
hey, zion! i think i am going to try to hold out until thursday... the bfns are just too disappointing. i'll go in for a blood test early thurs. morning, so i will know by thurs pm... it'll be cool to know that there are others waiting til thursday too, if you want to wait that long...

after so much cramping last week, i am feeling nothing! well, i also have tender breasts, but they've been so since before o -- maybe it was the injectables this month? i am feeling a bit down about this whole thing, whereas last week i was so sure, so excited... :
post #31 of 221
hi everyone.

i decided i'm going to try to save my money and not test unless I get to 13 dpo. (i usually have 12 day lp.) i agree the bfn results are just too disappointing.

also, someone wrote that the pill is evil. i agree. we've been trying for 8 months but i have no idea how much of the challenges are caused by the pill, dh's low motility score, or anything else.

i'm 5dpo.

i'm trying to keep busy. i've been going to our public pool to work out and enjoy the sun, but the babies in itty bitty bathing suits are driving me totally crazy.

what's also been working for me is trying to do things that i can't do pregnant. i even have taken some surfing classes.

hang in there everyone.

can't wait for august bfps.

Heather can you move me to "Waiting to O"?

My chart: I think I O'ed!

I don't have time to respond to all the personals but I am thinking about all of you! Hang in there!
post #33 of 221

Thanks. I gave it a whirl. I thought about doing this yesterday, but didn't after talking with dh, who is VERY squeamish about what I use internally. I'm not sure why...I keep telling him: it's not as though you sterilize your penis! :LOL Will do another garlic clove tonight, too. Psychologically, I've mostly come to terms with the fact that we'll probably be waiting 'til September. In these long and tedious months of vaginal problems, it seems that trying to hurry things along before my body is fully healed has only led to more problems.

Keeping my fingers crossed for all the Thursday testers!

Any advice on this is welcome.....
I think I ovulated on cd11 which would make me 3dpo
My cm is dry as a bone now and on friday night I had crippling ovary pains. The only reason I question it is because A)Its early and B)My temp was in the 98degree range after I ovulated kast month. I guess maybe I expected more radical of a thermal shift.

Thanks!

Lotus, I think you could have Od on CD 11, but it's kinda hard to tell with so many temps missing. If you're sure it was EWCM, and you're dry now, I'd assume I'd O'd though.
Good luck to you!

CD34 Another long one...

Well, the one year anniversary of coming off the pill has come and gone for me. My body is still suffering ill effects, and all in all I'm just a little worn out. Its hard posting here and watching new people come and go. I'm going to try and get back in the posting groove.

DH and I just came back last week from an amazing road trip to Sandpoint Idaho and PORTLAND! It was our second time in Portland visiting friends, and I must say I have a royal bug up my ass to move there. I know there are a few other ladies on this board who are considering a move there, or live there now. My biggest concern is the winter weather. I've only visited in the summer, which is beautiful of course. But man, the housing prices are so much lower than the Bay Area that I could spend the extra money on mid-winter trips to Hawaii!

This weekend my crazy inlaws were visiting. They are absolutely wonderful people, but they still manage to drive DH and I crazy. While visiting my sister-in-law and her precious new son, FIL managed to drink so much wine that he forgot his *pants* and wallet at their house. We then proceeded to get their opinions on how uncirced penises are dirty, and that they are really upset that we haven't provided them any grandkids yet. Thanks... get out of my house.

In the meantime, weekly accupuncture is keeping me sane and feeling proactive. I've had 4 days of EWCM, so am hoping to O this cycle. I've given up on charting for this cycle, but am still temping and taking note of my mucous.

I'm looking forward to catching up on everyone before my schedule gets crazy again on Wednesday.

Ow ow ow!!!

It's either O pains or that blasted cyst again, but either way my right side HURTS!!

I'm hoping it's my egg because dh and I GIO last night and it would be ideal :

cd 25, 10 dpo

So I had some cramping and a little bit of nausea yesterday. Yesterday was 9 days past ovulation for me, as far as I can tell. So either that was a symptom of implantation (no spotting, though) or I'm just getting PMS a little early this cycle. Wheee.

My temps have not been exciting, which is the other reason I'm not getting my hopes up. No triphasic temps, and one temp actually dipped below the coverline. Could have been an implantation dip, I suppose, but it doesn't seem likely. This seems to happen to me a lot; getting a lone temp that falls below the coverline well before my period is due. Is that something to worry about?

I guess I could test on Thursday, cause that's the day my period is due, but I agree with everyone else here that when the result is negative, it can really bring you down. I think I'll save them all to use to double-check once I do get a late period. As in, late by a couple of days!!! But I'll check in Thursday to see how the testing party went!

Hi all,

Well I have been charting again, in anticipation of TTC next month. I'll add a link to my chart tonight. It looks fine so far, I am on CD 10 (I think) and waiting to O. I am also going to do a dry run with OPKs this month, so I can see what it looks like on the tests when I O. Hopefully this will make it easier to tell when I am doing it for real.

I am a little nervous about my ability to get pregnant because my LP is on the short side, 10 days. I have been taking Vitex, so I hope that will help. OK, that's all for now.
