Yay! Or as my 2 year old says, Hooray!

Sending sticky baby vibes your way!

As for me, I can't test for at least another week. I don't feel preggo, but I guess you never know. I'm afraid to judge any symptoms I may have since they're usually symptoms of something else too.

I am sorry for your losses! I'm sending my sticky intentions your way!!
Good luck and keep us updated!

As for me well... Let's see here, I'm 12dpo and its 7:46pm here in MN and I'm heading off to bed!! Is this a sign? Or a sign that I'm doing way too much and should just relax a little more in my day to day life??!!! Either way I'm really tired and am going to respect my body's wishes and head to the sack! Dakota didn't take a nap today (1st time ever) I put him to bed at 7:30 so we are a tired crabby bunch!! Anyway, heres hoping that af stays away and the baby fairie will bring me a baby!

I don't want to stick my nose where it doesn't belong, but that just sounds like a lot of B6!
My NFP instructor told me to take it for limited mucus cycles. And I JUST NOW read that I should have cut down my dosage to 100 mg/day a few weeks ago -- yikes! That high dosage helps build up CM and for me it did help. What are the side effects?

I wish I could find that article! I can't remember if I read it here or elsewhere, but it was a really detailed study on the damaging effects of too much B6. I've looked up a bunch about it and found really conflicting information, but just about everything says not to take more than 100-200mg/day, especially for long periods of time. The side effects are nerve damage in the arms/legs similar to MS, but I believe it's reversible. I think there's also bone issues w/ long term use. I take 50mg/day for short LP, and I LOVE the fact that it completely wipes out my PMS. I haven't had a cramp in months. But what I read makes me nervous, and I'm thinking about cutting down to 25mg/day.

Hi ladies!!

Just checking in. I'm on cd13 and have been having some EWCM for the last 3-4 days. I finally got my OPK's in the mail a few days ago and have been getting negatives everyday. However, today, there was a faint line. So, I'll be taking another one this afternoon/evening to see if the line has gotten any darker.

Good luck everyone!!

Laura

I don't want to get my hopes up, but I've been feeling mildly nauseous all day today, and a bit the last few days. The thought of certain foods today made me want to hurl, and I've been sleepy all week (like I want to go to bed when DS goes at like 8!)

One more week, then we'll see.

I really hope this is it. Next cycle will be #6.

You have been moved!

Do you ladies use the clearblue fertility monitor? A friend of mine gave me hers; she thought the POAS kind was much better. But I gave it away again . . .
2ww is the two weeks wait. The earliest you can test and possibly get a BFP.

I'm so sad I'm turning 35 next week and not pregnant after 4 months TTC. I know there are those worse off than I am--sorry for you too. I'm just having a pity party!
You are in WTO now...it's ok we can have a pity party together, it took me 6 months of TTC to get my daughter (although AF never returned).

vibes to you! Hope you have a healthy !

OK, so please move me to 2ww. Thanks for explaining the jargon.

Can someone tell me how the OPK sticks work exactly? I used them last cycle, but was not very consistent with them. I never got two lines that looked exactly alike, but did get a line that was slightly less dark than the control line. Does that count?
post #150 of 312
No news here ... I'm 7 DPO, still haven't tested, probably won't. My period is due on Monday the 14th (10 DPO), and I'll probably spot on Sunday the 13th (9 DPO) if it's coming, so it's not like I'd be gaining that much advance notice by testing tomorrow (8 DPO).

I don't feel like this was our month, though. I don't feel pregnant. I didn't have much EWCM, either, and my temps were on the low side right after I ovulated, so I feel like my hormone levels were kind of lazy all month. It's okay, though. This was only our first cycle trying.

Hope everyone else is doing okay!

Ohmygosh I got a positive OPK!!!! On CD18. My last two cycles I didn't O til days 27 and 28, and I am SO freaking happy things are back to normal this time!!

Unfortunately DH is always so sleepy on the weekends because he works 14 hours/day Fri, Sat and Sun, so who knows if we'll get a BD in... I'll have to seduce him Otherwise we'll have to depend on that one BD a few days ago :

Does anyone know how early implantation can occur? I'm 7dpo, and for the last two days my temps have jumped big time. They haven't ever been this high since I've been charting. But 5dpo seems a little early for implantation to me. What do you ladies think? My chart is linked.
post #154 of 312
Hey guys checking in here, 14dpo and no signs of af!! woohhooo Of course I'm dying to test, but can't bare another - so I'm gonna try to hold off until Monday to test, there is still a possibilty I could get af tommorow at 15dpo sometimes my lutel phase is 14days and sometimes 15 days. I hope everyone else is doing great! I feel totally pg. Like really bad! If I am, maybe I should be careful for what I wish for becuase I am ssoooooo freakin' tired! Its 10:24am and I NEED A NAP!! I don't know how I will handle Dakota if I am pg becuase I have no energy whatsoever!

Anyways I keep you all updated!

Hi ladies! I don't think I've been here in months. Just to udpate, I'm 32 (as of yesterday) still nursing my 18 mo son quite a bit. Still waiting for AF to return - not a clue when it will. I'm so disappointed it hasn't yet, but trying to stay positive. I won't wean my son - he needs it too much.

Good luck to everyone trying!

Happy Birthday! I'll be 35 on Monday, also nursing my 18 month old son a lot(and my 3 yr old.) We're trying to conceive #3. I am so thankful my 18 mo old still nurses especially right now when he has a viral fever and won't eat anything. Nursing is so comforting to him and providing his only nourshment during this time.

I don't know about implantation at 5 DPO, but I don't think it's implantation that causes the temp rise anyway. Isn't it the increase in hormone levels, in hGC, the same thing that the HPT measures? So I would be pretty sure that it's too soon at 5 DPO for a true triphasic temp pattern.

Also, while 98.4 is higher than your previous cycle, that cycle did have a recurring high of 98.2, which isn't that different. (I had a triphasic chart with my son, and the temperature jump was half a degree.)

However, your temps seem good and high! Keep those hormones pumping! :

Hey, i've been kinda MIA for a while here...but my status hasn't changed any...
DS still nurses all night like nobody's business (he's a year next week) and I haven't had any signs of fertility, so there's that...
On the other hand, I've got sore nipples the last few days (like killing me sore) which hasn't happened before. I don't have any signs of infection, not thrush, mastitis, etc, so I don't know what would account for the soreness...except then it occured to me that sore breasts has always been my earliest sign of pregnancy. (I've had several miscarriages, so I'm good with pgcy symptoms, even if I've only actually had one baby!) Anyway, since I haven't had anything to show when I may be (or have been) fertile, I figure I can't test unless/until I start feeling sick. I tend to get sick around 5 wks, so I guess I need to wait a couple more weeks and then we shall see what we shall see!
Here's hoping!

I haver always gotten a post-o dip (as in, it spikes the day after ovulation, then dips, then goes up again...) EXCEPT when i'm pg it doesn't dip at all.
So, I dunno about the timing of implantatoin (I think it's usually about a week after ovulation) but your temps can go up earlier than that, at least, mine did!

Hey guys! Sooooo bummed here, tested today 15dpo BFN and... a lovely visit from af!!!!!!!Urgh! I am so dissapointed! I think I just have to wean my son I can't think of anyother options! I don't really know what else to do in order to increase my chances. I swear I've tried everything from vitex, to every pre-natel and supplement, to massage, to meditation, to intense prayer, to visualization, to accuncture and chinese herbs. What else can I do? I think weaning is the only option. If anyone else has any suggestions please tell me, becuase this is something I don't want to do.
