Thanks for the hugs - I know I must have sounded crazy but I'm OK now!
I'm sorry I'm glad you are feeling ok now. I'm trying 2 OPKs a day also.

Friggin hostile mucus
So, I'm already not too optimistic about this cycle. I'm convinced that I'm going to kill any swimmers I manage to get within minutes. I'm going to order some pre-seed and or some FertileCM and see if that helps. I should wait until Friday to order... but I think i'll do it now... maybe I can get it here Saterday (I suspect I'll O Sunday or Monday) I'm also going to look into some dietary changes to try and improve it... I don't want to wait that long though... so chemicals it is (for now)!
Poor hubby I hope he is ready to go again soon.

Hey guys. I'm just checking in. My chart is weird this month...I thought I o'd around day 14 but now I'm not sure and feeling a little discouraged. I'm getting a better thermometer after work today 'cause I'd rather blame the thermometer than think I'm not ovulating yet. I just came off hormonal BC in mid-October.

Congrats, Jenn!

Hey Kripa!

I'm so happy to see that you're hosting the February thread. Can I join? I'm 30 y.o. and have been trying for like 7 months. The link to my chart is in my signature.

Ugh, I hope he's feeling better soon too... I ordered my pre-seed... hopefully that will help him (and me) also.

kJad29!

Kemi! Hope your stay here is short and sweet. These ladies are the absolute best - you are in very good company over here.
post #12 of 445
Hey. I was thinking about joining this thread, and then look--I'm already on it! (We've been trying since 9/05)

I haven't been following, but : Congratulations to Jenn! : Good news!

I'm really tired. I am 14dp0 and tested neg today, so I'm feeling kind of numb. I feel really creatively blocked in my life. I'm waiting... I was thinking last night what an absolute relief it would be to be preg and how instead of spending the 9-10 months on preparing for the baby, I might actually take the time for me. I might set aside time for creative projects and exploration while I still have free time. It's this limbo that is so difficult.

Hello to some familiar folks. It's nice to read about some others who are ttc #1 and are... well in their 30s. It's different.

No time to catch up but wanted to say thanks for Kripa for the lovely new thread!

Hey Kemi

I just added you and we're together in the list, how funny is that? Welcome to this thread.

(I'm hoping to be able to write you back tonight, thanks for your email)

Thanks for the welcomes and thanks for adding me in Kripa! I hope my stay is short too, but because I want to be a mama! I hope we all have short and sweet or reduced time here. Here are my stats for now:

I'm 30 y.o. (June 6th is my b-day)
Married for 1 year 4 months
ttc for 7 months (but we decided to scratch out the other tries since we were in the process of moving and our attempts were lackluster at best)
Currently I'm on CD11 and waiting to O. We're expecting for me to O at least on CD15 of this month which is my usual time for my right ovary. I also drink 2 cups of RRL and nettles tea daily. It's helped me tremendously with CM. I need a regular "slippery when wet" sign around O time now!

Thanks again ladies!!

That describes too well how I feel today, but my OPK tests are still neg.

Actually I've been taking the vitex and EPO, maybe that's why I need a caution sign.

I'm on CD 11 and expecting to O on CD 15 also. I'm so going to try those teas.

Hi funnygrace, welcome back to the thread. I think you popped your head in back on the original thread (maybe Nov?). Sorry you are still TTC (and big for the BFN), but glad you found your way back to us. I am not sure how often Kripa is checking in with the thread, but she should be able to update your info for you
post #19 of 445
Just dropping in to say hi and congrats to Jenn.
post #20 of 445
So much action already this month!

Thanks for the new thread, Kripa!

Welcome, Kemi, and welcome back funnygrace and Nico DeMouse!

And nice to see you, Kat! You're having a nice long LP (and you should update your chart -- it's looking good!)

And, Dee: . Your double-OPK plan will surely do the trick this month!

I know I had a bunch more stuff I wanted to say, but I have momentarily forgotten... will surely be back later with more! I had a nice temperature rise this morning, and together with the OPKs, it looks like yesterday was O-day. So now I wait...
