Wow it's been pretty quiet around here. Lots of waiting an obsessing going on. I like the idea of calling it the 2wo instead of 2ww! We're waiting, but not patiently! Ace
I read something about not elevating your hips too much because the semen will pool behind your cervix instead of at the cervix. Hopefully you won't have to, but if you try again you may want to elevate less and put in an instead cup afterward to hold everything in. You can find them with tampons and stuff b/c they're meant to catch blood but I've read several stories about how they've helped conception. It may have even helped me in December. Thanks for asking about people's stories, I'm actually learning a lot!Jenn
thanks for the input on my chart. I'm really confused and tempted to just put O on cd13 as a compromise, but that gives me "high" pregnancy chances and I don't wanna get my hopes up!
Did you chart for a while before trying? I naively thought that going off BCP would be enough to get pregnant, and I've always had very regular cycles so I didn't think I'd need much time to adjust. Also I think O on cd15 last cycle had something to do with the early m/c the previous month. Anyway, like Sarah said, it doesn't matter - I'll have a + or - at the end of it all either way.
Thanks for the zen influence and cheerfulness Sarah
, it brings a smile to my face!

I could've written that! I think having a non-pg cycle after those 2 back-to-back pg cycle gave me some perspective on what's normal during the 2ww. Apparently mild cramping/twinges is normal. Bah!
I'm so happy that vitex is agreeing with you! Yay for no boob pain!Beth
how are you feeling? Any morning sickness since the awful flu/cold you had?Nony
good to hear from you!Kripa
good call on ordering preseed and OPKs during AF. I waited too long and missed my chace.
: for this cycle with your extra tools! I don't know what to say about the kind of intercourse pain you're having. Mine was different, mostly right at the entrance, but good luck with the new lube(s).
I'm home sick today after having an awful PMS-y day yesterday. I hate it when I cry at work (in the bathroom) - it's so embarrassing. Glad to be home b/c it's cold, windy and rainy and I'm on the couch with my gingerbread flavored decaf coffee.
Hope everyone who was under the weather is feeling better!
How are the rest of our lurkers doing? Nico
, looks like you're Oing! Ity
, what's going on with your chart? If it wasn't for those +OPKs I'd think you just O'd! Maybe triphasic?
are you still around?
