Congratulations Spider!!! Woohoo!!!

SimplyRochelle - That must be so frustrating for you. Feel free to vent all you want

I'm still waiting to O. I was hoping for an earlier O date this cycle but I'm on CD 21 and I still don't have ewcm so it's not looking like that will happen. I've been having some twinges since yesterday so I'll probably O about the same time as last cycle (CD 25). I'm taking epo, I've started drinking lots of water, and I'm using preseed this time. I so hope it works this time .

Congrats Spider!!! Wishing you a wonderful pregnancy.

Monday Check in:
Name: Sarah
Date: 10/6/07
Where are you at in your cycle: CD 27, 8 DPO (I have long cycles)
Appointments: N/A
Symptoms if they apply: none yet... although I'm at the point where I scrutinize every little feeling
Testing: tomorrow morning, because I think I may actually have O'd 5 days earlier than FF says, just to see. This will be my first hopefully positive testing experience which is exciting Weird to be hoping for a positive after years of dreading it! If tomorrow is BFN, will wait till FF's 14 DPO.
Thoughts: Excited. This has been our first TTC cycle and we BD way more frequently than usual, I'm hoping it paid off! We didn't time it perfectly, looking back, but hoping for the best. I know that we may have months of TTC ahead but REALLY hoping that this first one did the trick! I quit caffeine right before I O'd, which was easier than I thought, and I'm trying to drink tons of water and eat 5-9 servings of fruits & veggies daily. It's easier to be healthy with the potential pregnancy motivation!

Sending you all lots of baby dust - hopefully this is a productive month

Congrats to Spider:

Monday Check in:
Name: Me
Date: 10-6-07
Where are you at in your cycle: I'm Late by 2 days Day 34
Appointments: None
Symptoms if they apply: PMS I think That's really not funny
Testing: In the morning. I got a digital test if AF doesn't show up. I used a dollar store one this morning BFN
Thoughts: I'm afraid this will be a repeat of last month-6 days late for no apparent reason and daily BFNs. I've never had cycles this long and the only thing I'm doing different is I started taking a new kind of prenatals in Aug! Blah...............

Wow, Sarah - your chart looks great!

I would guess I'm a day or two post-O. Now of course I wish I *had* charted so I could obsess over my temps Ah well, I will know when I know, right? I think timing was pretty good, although more could have been even better

What's this I've seen about sore throats being a possible indicator of pg? Anyone? I woke up with a mild sore throat this morning, and don't have any real reason to have one - no one I know has or has had a cold, no allergies, I'm not smoking nor hanging around and smoky places, etc. It seems kind of early to be experiencing any symptoms, but as I don't really know when I O'd.....who knows?!

congrats spider!!!



as for me, i'm pretty confused. yesterday i pretty much flaked out on my wake up at 6:45 AM to take my temps ritual and decided to sleep in until 9:45 since my toddler let me. I (obviously) had very different temps from my usual pattern. I kicked myself in the butt all day yesterday, and promised i'd wake up on time today.

welllllll, today i woke up on time. took my temp, thought to myself, "wow, that is a lot lower than yesterday...i should take note of that..." well, passed out with my thermometer in hand. for whatever reason, my thermometers memory function does not work properly, so this morning at 9:45 am, when i woke up again, i was unable to get the temp. so, i temped again, and had another high temp.

i'm not sure if I Oed or not. If this "watery" CM that I am marking is just residual semen. i ran out of OPKs. I'm starting to think this isn't my month

orrr what i should be saying is

I'm just going to continue to DTD on a regular basis, and remain positive. Watch the month I wonked otu be my month.

Vitex may not be for me. Or it may have not started working yet (after all I did only take 500mg a day). My breasts are so effing tender right now. It's ridiculous the amount of beating they get daily and you never really notice how often they get bumped until they hurt like this. I actually woke up after rolling over onto my stomach last night. I tested 2 days ago and got a bfn but I wouldn't normally expect AF for another 4 days from now at the earliest. Last month I had about 4 days of tender breasts (although that was the first month in about 8 that I'd had them as a pms symptom)
with AF showing up on the 5th day of miserability (I'm just making up words as I go). I am annoyed. Blah. Just venting some more.
post #92 of 443
simplyrochelle, I am sorry. I hope the tenderness goes away soon
post #93 of 443
I'm still waiting to O and I'm getting a little anxious. I had twinges a couple days ago but now nothing. I started using the preseed yesterday and I only have 6 tubes so I have to ovulate in the next 4-5 days. This is so frustrating!!! Everytime I go to the bathroom I'm examing the tp for ewcm - but nothing!!!

Okay, I just had to rant, I'm done now.

nicmazzei - I can relate! If my memory button every failed me I'd be in trouble, that little button is used almost every day

knowing that it happens ANY DAY NOW is the worst! you can do it!

Check in:

Date: 10/07/07
Where are you at in your cycle: CD
Appointments: None

Testing: blood panel on thursday
Thoughts: see above
post #100 of 443
Name: Nic
Date: October 8, 2007
Where are you at in your cycle: CD 15
Appointments: Mayan Abdominal Massage 10/17
Symptoms if they apply: Is Hypochondria a symptom?
Testing: I totally screwed that one up this cycle, I ran out of OPKs, and haven't even bothered going to get any... they could have come in handy since I screwed up my wakeup/temp ritual this weekend. Whatever. It'll be fine.
Thoughts: I go from being laid back and not really caring, to being very high strung/what will i do without OPKs/a dependable chartish. We BD all weekend, but it was more recreational than OMG I HAVE TO IF NOT WE WONT MAKE BABIIIIEZ. Last night, I decided to leave it up to God this cycle. I'll still be pretty crushed if this is not the month, but I am not going to let the next few weeks control my life like I did last month. These feelings will probably change by next Monday check in
