Wow Jen and Judy and Writerbird (who starts with an S
What a great thread to be on! Thanks so much to all for the warm welcome and great input about the "telling the family" issue. It is so helpful to have a forum to discuss these topics with understanding and empathetic women!
Hmmm, My given name starts with an A, my nickname that I've gone by for 30 years starts with an L, but my middle name starts with a C - does that count for the Circle C?
At this rate we'll have the whole alphabet down if the BFPs keep rolling in!
Writerbird and Judy - thanks for sharing your sweet stories about how you told your DHs.
Rain - I really like the $Tree tests for OPK and HPT - they are cheap, but very sensitive and no false results that I know of, not even evaps.
I'm on CD 12. With my irregular cycles I don't know when to expect O, but decided to try the SMEP this month, so took an OPK yesterday and got a faint line! With my O days ranging from CD 32 at the latest to last month's earliest of CD 18, I didn't think there was any chance of it being earlier than that, but give me a plan and I'll stick to it! So more OPKs over the next few days and I hope to catch the timing this month and join the Circle!
