I'm still here just in lurking mode.....I'm not charting anymore and just trying to take it easy and enjoy my little ones. Hopefully when the universe is ready to bless me with a new soul it will happen. I'm just BD'ing pretty regularly and hoping for the best.

I'm pretty sure I O'd on Sunday night. Move me to 2ww please. I'm upset because we did not BD on O day. My OPK never turned positive but all other signs point to O. I do not, however, temp. My cm is very sticky now and cervix is tightly closed. On Sunday I had ewcm and open cervix. I'm baffled as to why I never got a positive OPK. That never happened before. However, this is the first time I'm coming off HBC in 12 years.

2WW sucks

Hey nursing mamas!!! Its Janurary!!! A new year! I'm kinda bummed I wasn't pg ln 07' like pg every year!! But this month is very different! I am + about this month! Some people know the exact minute, they convieve! Conscience conception, Intuition, universal signs of a new soul being born. Some strange things are happening here! I have a yeast infection really mild and almost gone but still in the 2ww that can't be good! Or maybe its a sign of a hormonal shift, I have heard of this! Anyway I am doing things differently and am feeling + whether or not I am pg. We are trying to give up nursing at night now (just to go down for bed, Dakota has been night weaned for a month) then we will be down to just one feeding a day (naptime) I am hoping this will speed things up a bit. I want to keep the naptime nursing until he is 2 or older. I really feel things this month! Like some new energy in cirulating! I just feel like if we can address our fears of not becomming pg again the true scared to death fear, then we can let it go and move on. I addressed those fears and feel like I can move on, and I feel lighter! I hope Jan is a good month for us all!!

Kleine Hexe: I would keep testing with opk's. . . sometimes it takes a little longer and your body will have some false starts, and you maybe having a longer cycle. I would keep testing so you don't miss a possible window! the egg can surivie for 24hrs and sperm up until 5 days? I have heard of even longer in favorable conditions. It just means you maybe having a girl Also on peeonastick.com there is a section on opk's and an artlicle a woman wrote about is how you CAN miss your LH surge. it IS possible, I would trust your body and your intuition on this one! You should check out the website though it's very informative.

HTH!!

post #13 of 312
Ok ladies another thing I was thiinking about. . The other moms that seem to get pg right away aren't "trying" In a sense well granted yes some poeple trying do get LUCKY and get pg right away but for us trying we are tracking and charting and what have you but for others who aren't paying attention get pg but its not like its right away its that they just got lucky. kwim? my husband just brought his up, I couuld be not tryiing for 7mo and get pg and think that I got pg right away becuase I wasn't trying!! Does this make any sense???!!!

I so feel the frusteration. But knowing that every womans body does the same thing to get pg helps. Like I'm defected its just I aware of ttc not that I'm tringg anyharder.

Mamas, I am just popping in to wish you all a wonderful start to 2008 and I hope to see a lot of January BFPs.

For those of you feeling discouraged, it WILL happen. For us, that was our 12th cycle ttc, and second cycle on vitex and 1st cycle using an organic natural progesterone cream.

: for you all this month!!

With my closed cervix and very sticky cm there is no way I'm O'ing now. I'll keep checking and if those things change I'll use another OPK. I guess you casn miss a syrge but I was testing everyday at the same time. Also on Sunday (which is when I'm sure I O'd) I took more than one test because all my other signs were telling me I O'd. I don't know. Maybe I should test eariler in the day instead of 3? At any rate nothing to do now but wait.
post #17 of 312
I'm sorry your feeling discouraged Kleine, your right all you can do and all of us really is wait. It just sucks waiting. and waiting, and waiting and waiting!!! Urgh!! It will happen, to you, to me, to all of us! We all just have to wait. But the good thing is we can all come here and vent!!! Thank god for motheringdotcommune!

Waiting to be ready

Waiting to be ready
I'm new to the TTC forums, but we really want another baby, but only one PP AF so far, and that was on Oct. 14! (my sons 7 month bday). So since I have NO idea when it'll come again, I'll say we are waiting to be ready .
Currently Paul (my son) is still totally breastfed (no solids yet), so I'm guessing it'll be awhile, we plan to start solids at a year, unless he seems like he needs them before then. I seem to be one of those people who BFing is a good way to space kids! Looking forward to getting to know those here.

Hi! I've just started to TTC #2, and I'm new to the TTC forums too ... please put me in Waiting to O. I'm expecting to ovulate around the 5th.

A little bit about us: I'm 38, my DH is 44, and our son is almost 28 months old. He nurses twice a day (for a total of about 30 minutes) and is gradually weaning himself -- which makes me a little sad, but it's also a good time to TTC #2. I got my period back a year ago, when he was 14 months old and still nursing five to seven times a day, including at least once at night.

When AF returned my cycles were almost immediately very regular, back to their same old 28-day length. I have a short luteal phase (the cycle before I conceived it was only seven days long!), and even now it's only nine or ten days long.

I'm happy to be here with you all, and I am sure that many of us will get the new year's present we're hoping for!

Well this may be my last month on this thread as I think DS has weaned completely. I have mixed emotions about it since I was ready for him to wean. I'll miss the closeness though. Not sure how I feel about it yet.
