Welcome Midwestmom, this is our first official month of trying, last month with no protection didn't produce any babies, so we are : for this month. I was a basket case at the end of last cycle, wondering if maybe, so everybody just get ready for a really mental me this month! Good luck to you!

Paisley I love your new fun name! I also agree with your advise to SlingWearin'Mama: Test early and test often!

Mavournin I'm so sorry she tracked you down. I know what you mean about everybody seeming to be pg, I work one day a week as a dental hyg., last Wed. I had 2 pg girls! Just a couple of weeks before that one my best friends announced that she's pg, and they weren't trying and not real excited at first. I just don't get it! I'm holding strong to my July baby hope... and I keep trying to convince myself that an August baby would be just as wonderful, I don't know if I have succeeded yet though.

Hannahmom we have started our GIO fest as well! O is within this week too! However, my cycle is 25-29 days (but I think this should be a 26 day), so I'm sure I will begin testing before you. After last month, I know I will be the queen of early testing! Dollar Tree here I come! Good luck to you though!

LisaP don't leave us in suspense, let us know when you get that BFP!

: Good luck to everyone and have a wonderful day!

I was wondering the same thing!

Thank you for asking HotMama! I wanted to know if it has to be fresh pineapple, too. I know canned isn't as good for you, but we are going to be out of town staying in a hotel, fresh would be tough to do. So does canned have as much bromeline.

i don't know for sure - but i thought only fresh pineapple had the bromelain, and that once it was processed for canning or preserving, it no longer had it. i'm off to be acupuncted now, but i'll try to find info when i get back ... or maybe someone else knows?

it must be pineapple season around here, though, because the one i got was cheap and ripe and totally yummy!

Well I am on CD 12 and I am unsure if I am waiting to O or waiting to know because my temp shifted on Monday morning. which was only CD 11. Will someone look at my chart and give me some advice
post #47 of 219
Sure looks like you o'd
post #48 of 219
It looks to me like you o'd on cd 11 too. . . though that does seem a little early. But clomid can make some women O early. . . how many cycles have you been taking it? It looks like your bd timing was pretty great if in fact you did O yesterday.

3/4 dpo here, and I am feeling very hungry and craving weird things, namely Fried Chicken (something I hadn't had in YEARS, but simply HAD to have today). Last time in very early pregnancy I felt inspired for the first time ever in my life to eat an avocado and cucumber roll (maki), and it was then that I knew I was pregnant. I'm not quite as convinced about the fried chicken craving, but it does have me thinking good thoughts. I'm no longer feeling sick (seem to have gotten by with a very mild version of the current family bug), so that's good because it means that if I DO start to feel a little pukey I'll be able to blame it entirely on pregnancy (though after the fried chicken thing, I suppose that could be the culprit too).

Still eating pineapple throughout the day. . . though I must admit I don't particularly like it. It's mostly the texture that gets to me, how it comes off in those sort of stringy chunks. Hopefully it works regardless of whether or not I like it!

I will feel really hopeful if I start to have some breast tenderness soon. . . so far they still feel pretty much like the numb survivors of two and a half years of tandem nursing. . .

Fingers crossed for all!

Lex

Hi All. Just popping into the new thread to say hello. I only have a few seconds, so I'll have to post personals later. I am on cd 8, and should be O'ing next monday or tuesday, so we are in for a fun weekend of GIO!!! I can't wait. I soo hope this is the month for us!! Babydust to all who need it!!!

Hi surf mama! I'm so glad you're feeling healthy again. : for you this month!

mamaov4~ You're so right about waiting to test until 12dpo. It seems like a pretty reliable day, either way.

paisley~ I love the new name & the ear wax theory!

Welcome midwestmom.

Mavournin. Everyone I know IRL is pg, too. That, or they've just given birth. Depending on my mood, it makes me feel either really hopeful or really depressed. Today, I'm feeling okay about it.

HotMama1221~ I also buy my cheapies from saveontests. They ship pretty quickly, and you can't beat the price.

luckymama~ Can we say GREAT chart, with AMAZING bd timing?! Let's hope the pineapple allows the bean to snuggle in tightly! (We need a dancing pineapple smilie...) :LOL

lexbeach~ I think Bromelain tablets work well, too, if you're not into pineapple.

katytheprincess2~ Yep, I'd say you O'd on cd11 too.

hannahmom, Joygee, and SaveTheWild~ We've started up our gio fest here, too. I should O within the week. My LP is 14 days, so depending upon O, I'll be testing at the end of Oct or first week of Nov.

Now, I have to give a gigantic plug to Robitussin. Though I don't take western meds at all, I took cough syrup yesterday (2 doses of 2 tsp. each), and I woke up to several inches of ewcm! It is amazing stuff. I have never had this much ewcm in my life. I also drank a ton of water yesterday, which I'm sure helped. So... to my cycle buddies...RUN out and get some of this stuff. It's incredible.
post #51 of 219
lexbeach- a few days after I thought I O'd last cycle, I had the most intense breast tenderness ever and I was positive I was pg. Although I only have one 2 1/2 yr old nurser, I thought my boobs would forever be completely numb so was really surprised. Unfortunately it was just a freak hormonal thing.

midwestmom- where are you at in the midwest? I know of a few birth centers/ midwives in the WI/MN area, although they're really few and far between. The closest to me (central WI) is 1 1/2 hrs. away and she's only going to be taking new clients for another month! After her it's a good 3+ hr. drive which is too long. Good luck finding someone! (you could try posting in the "tribes" section, too)

Pandora are you still out there? Did they ever tell you exactly what your beta was? Hoping for *just one* happy bean for you!

and fun to all you bd'ers and waiters :

Meggles I think we're still going to be cycle buddies if I have another long cycle like last month. I've been temping so I'll try to get a link up!
post #52 of 219
Meggles - you got me all pumped to try the cough syrup!! Can you post a refresher on the guidelines?

I know its guanifessen (however you spell that) only.
How much is a dose and how many per day? (i know you said 2 doses 2x per day but is a dose whatever is listed on the bottle?)
How long before O do you take it?
When do you stop?

Thanks!!

hannahmom~ Here's a link: Robitussin

Basically, the dose is 2 tsp, 3 times a day. The bottle says take 2-4 tsp every 4 hours, though that seems a bit much. I took 2 tsp in the morning and 2 tsp before bed and literally woke up with 5+ inches of ewcm. I think it only makes sense to take it in the 5 or so days prior to expected O. I'm going to take it until my temp rise, or until I feel that I've O'd, whichever comes first. Make sure guaifenesin is the only active ingredient.

: everybody! Let's make some s!
post #54 of 219
Since I still lurk around here I had to remind you - cough syrup tastes digusting, you can get the exact same effect by taking guafenesin tablets (Mucinex) and then you don't have the other icky ingredients in Robitussin. Just a suggestion! I took them for - I think - 3 days before O and the day of O this last cycle. : for you all!

Welcome midwestmom!

Mavournin, I have a delicious box of chocolate cyber-truffles for you and a big . I hope the time passes quickly until you are ready for another try.

And Pandora, where the heck are ya?? I hope everything is going well for you.

Well, in our usual responsible manner , dh and I decided in the heat of the moment last night that if there's already a chance that I'll concieve from our adventures a couple days ago that we might as well go all out and ttc now instead of waiting till next cycle as we had originally planned. So we are officially TTC! Woohoo! After all these years, it's such a novel concept for us to try to get pregnant on purpose. :LOL

I added my chart to my sig so that if you get tired of looking at your own charts 20x a day , you can check out mine for variety. :LOL Click on the in my sig. (I feel so clever about that, teehee!)

This was my first cycle taking it so I am hopeful that one cycle will be a enough. These hot flashes are killing me :LOL

Good luck to you!!!

lexbeach - i've been desperate for chicken salad for two days now. i made a whole chicken for dinner last night, and this whole day i couldn't wait for lunch to make chicken salad. :LOL

meggles - aw ... shucks, thanx for noticing ... we wouldn't have had the timing, but i decided that there would be no "i'm too tired" or other such whiny excuses from my dh this time 'round. i think i surprised him a little.

paisley - welcome into the game ... now gio! (awesome work with the link, btw!)

savethewild - have a fun weekend!

katytheprincess - looks like cd10 or cd11 to me, too. :

PANDORA PANDORA PANDORA- where are you, dearie?!?!?!?!?! i'm worried about you ... please check in!

so, i had a post-o acupuncture treatment today ... also thought i was cramping a bit on the drive over? munching on the rest of the pineapple. funny thing: i thought i didn't like pineapple, because of its chewy, stringy quality, but this one has neither of those characteristics and practically melts in my mouth. also, i thought pineapple had a bitter aftertaste, but this one does not at all. perhaps i've been doing it wrong all these years? anyway, ever since my session, i've had this nice warm, tingly sensation way low down in my abdomen ... weird, huh?
post #58 of 219
lol Here I am. And The midwives did NOT call. So my numbers are normal

so yeah I *AM* Definitely pregnant. YAY!

I got stabbed for my second draw today. so it's all good. The lady at the lab said that they have a 48hr turnover at their processing facility so if I didn't get a call Friday or today, then the #s are good
post #59 of 219
Mavournin ... I have 8 pg friends right now and my cousin's wife just had their 2nd two weeks ago. And in ds's mommy & me swim class, there are only 3 out of 15 moms who aren't pg (or if the other 2 moms are pg, they're not showing yet). It's ridiculous.

Pandora ... where are you? Hope everything's ok.

I've made the executive decision to not test until Friday, assuming af doesn't show up before then. (Although in all honesty, Friday is a terrible day to test as I have an open house for my new business and I'll be too giddy if it's a bfp.) If I O'd when I think I O'd (Oct. 1), then I'll be 13 dpo, and if I O'd when FF thinks I O'd (Oct. 4), then I'll be 10 dpo. If I get a bfn, I'm sure I'll be doing the first morning poas thing until I either get a bfn or af arrives. I'm feeling, for lack of a better word, weird. I'm not sure if I'm fighting illness, PMSing, or pg. None of my weirdness feels like any of those things.

Anyway ... who knows. I'm just glad I've finally been able to commit myself to a date certain for testing so I can stop obsessing, at least a little. So ... anybody joining me for my poas party on Friday?
post #60 of 219
Pandora!! Woohoo!!! Me and all my produce are doing the happy dance for you! :

katytheprincess2 - I just noticed your sig about you on Clomid! But seriously, I hope it will even out for you soon, or better yet, no longer be necessary because you are preggers.

Henry's_Mamma - I am tempted to test with you on Friday even though I haven't even entered LP yet. I just want to play with one of these little tests. So if no one else is ready, I'll practice test with you!
