My chart is being a little weird this month. I was 9dpo, temp'd the morning and got a high temp when I was expecting a really low one to let me know I'd get AF either today or tomorrow. FF moved my O date to CD 19 from CD 17 and now i'm 7dpo.
I have no idea what to think.

post #3 of 313
Shalena, thanks for starting the thread this month! Sorry I don't have any advice on your chart...someone more experienced will have an idea, I'm sure!

Well I am 3dpo--so excited that I can tell with my temps (co-sleeping and nightnursing every 2 horus and all) that I ovulated! Is it possible to already feel nauseous? Maybe it's just wishful thinking, although with ds I pretty much knew right away that I was pregnant..I just felt different. I am concerned b/c I have a very long estrogen phase...lots of fertile mucous before I o'd, and my cycles have been 26 days for the last few months (this is my first month charting though) and I o'd on cd18! But I'm putting it in God's hands and trying to think positive.

Another question...ds has been nursing less during the day...a LOT less. This just started right around when I o'd. Is it possible that this decrease in nursing could lead to a longer LP right away, or does that take some time?

just sub'ing

3dpo here too Bennifer!
post #5 of 313
Shalena, thanks for doing the thread this month!!!

PapayaMom and Bennifer - you guys are about 4-5 days ahead of me in the cycle! I POAS w/my ovulation predictor and it says within 24-48 hrs I should o. Oh I'm so excited I can hardly wait for it to be two weeks from now. DH and I are going to get in some bding and I'm just praying that we hit the mark!!! KWIM??? Good luck to EVERYONE!!!
post #6 of 313
Hi everyone! Looks like several of us are on the same schedule! I am 5 DPO today, and can be put in the 2WW, please... I don't know how soon one can feel nauseus-- I am sure it can be different for everyone! Bennifer, my cycle sounds a lot like yours this last time. I did not ovulate until CD19, which is 5-6 days later than normal. I was beginning to think I might just skip O this month! Temping is a great tool... I will be sending some extra good thoughts your way, Motheringheart!
Have a good day, everyone! Michelle
post #7 of 313
Shalena- Thanks for taking the thread, It looks to me like it reset your day becuase of your CM, Creamy is potentialy fertile and if it's like mine it sets to the last day of fertile CM.

I am still waiting to O, should happen next week, it usually takes about 3 weeks for me to get going
post #8 of 313
DD is definitely weaning and not even nursing daily at this point

CD 18, 6 DPO looks like there are a few of us in the 2ww :

post #9 of 313

bluebird I am a CD19 o'er pretty consistenly. It feels like my cycles go on forever sometimes.

next week will be crazy with all of us testing. As I say every cycle I am gong to try and hold off until 12DPO which is when I expect to see a temp drop, but I reserve the right to go nuts and test early
post #10 of 313
Keri, sorry to hear about your dd weaning...I can't imagine how sad I'll be when that happens. The other day ds went 6 hours during the day without nursing and when he finally asked to nurse I was so excited...dh just laughs b/c I'm always saying ds nurses too much (he's usually like every 1-2 hours and he's 15 months! Although lately it's been every 3-4 hours...what a nice break!) but it made me think how sad I'll be when our nursing relationship is over--so my thoughts are with you!

PapayaMom, I'm glad I've got someone on my same schedule! We were watching video of ds as a newborn the other night and it just made me pray even harder for this little one, and for my LP to be long enough...hoping the same for you!

This month I am going to try to start interviewing midwives...I want to have a VBAC so I need to start educating myself some more. It's funny though, I can already visualize myself having one, and I know that's the first step!

Mothering Heart, good luck this month!!
post #11 of 313
Thanks Mamas. I am ok with it because it is on her terms - she has not asked to nurse during the day for MONTHS now and at the VS nurse in the other day I offered and she was confused : She did latch on but only for a minute I was hoping she would make it to 3 but her B-day isn't until Halloween so I don't see that happening. Her sister nursed for 43 months and weaned this past January. Nursing two for 2 years 3 months was an adventure that I have no desire to re-live but it had it's very sweet moments

Honestly, it's also nice to know that if I do get pregnant I won't be nursing through the entire pregnancy

post #12 of 313
Hi everyone! Wow, next week will be crazy with so many of you testing. How exciting!

I'm not sure where I'm at. I'm using my fertility monitor this month and yesterday it asked for the first stick (cd8). Well this morning I put in another one and it went from just one bar, or low fertility, to 3 bars with an egg, meaning peak fertility???? On cycle day 9? Is that possible or did I do somthing wrong. Is it due to nursing? Can anyone help? Thanks.

Well, I'll be anxiously awaiting all the results next week!

Good luck all!

post #13 of 313
Well, I won't be testing until next Thursday. I gave up testing early after the first month of trying, looking at negative pg tests is just too depressing. Last month we set a day to test and stuck to it and I have to tell you when AF showed on time, even with a beautiful chart, it was so much easier than taking 3 tests starting 12 DPO while waiting for AF. Of course I was sad but I didn't feel defeated like I did the previous month looking at negative tests.

Joining the 2ww...fingers crossed!

i'm on cd25 and TRYING not to get my hopes up!! (yeah right ) not much going on here though...just trying not to watch the seconds tick by
post #16 of 313
Hi, I'm new. Please add me to your list. This is our 1st month TTC (my last baby ) and I've just entered the 2WW. I'm not sure exactly what day I'm on because I've always conceived easily so I don't chart. Does breastfeeding decrease your chances of conceiving at all? I've been getting AF regularly since December.

DS is 23 months, and nurses 5-7 times/day, but is finally sleeping all night --- with help from DH-- without a "nursie."

My DD is 14 years old.

Welcome Jenny, I added you to the list.
post #18 of 313
I've peeked into these forums a time or two. We are TTC #2. A couple of months ago I miscarried, so we're pretty nervous this time around.

My daughter was conceived the first month of trying, and the this recent pregnancy also happened on the first month of trying, so I am trying not get my expectations too high. I don't chart or anything. We are on CD12 as of today. I have to go out of town for a week on CD15, so who knows if it will work.

Good luck to everyone!

ETA: My daughter will be 2 on Friday. She nurses twice a day, more for comfort than milk nowadays.
post #19 of 313

Hi, This is my first post here, although I've been lurking a couple of months

Please add me to the waiting to O list. We've been ttc #2 for 6 months and last month I finally had a long enough lp. I tend to O very late (around cd 39-40) and I'm on cd 10 right now. My dd is 14 months old and is nursing quite a bit because of teething. It took us over 5 years to conceive her so we're expecting to be on this ttc journey for a while.
post #20 of 313
Move me to the 2ww please? Even though I'm not waiting for a darned thing. I o'd today with no shot at all of conceiving.

Note to self: In order to make a baby, one must actually engage in sexual intercourse. :
