Start of November 2ww??/Anyone else not finding out until later in November? - Page 9

post #161 of 526
Obnoxiously positive is good for me...but only because I have lingering doubts about whether or not I can get pregnant. And that isn't helping me out any. So I am more obnoxiously positive about "I CAN and WILL get pregnant!" or "I CAN and WILL have a baby!" Less of the whole "if" thing.

It is tiring, but for a good cause!!!

Much and to all!!!

This is the last time I will ask you mamas to look at my chart this month, I swear! But I am confused...whaddya think? Did I actually O? Can temps be erratic the cycle after a loss?

My chart.

Goodluck to our new Waiters...Nature and Adventuregirls!

Alexis-Yes, I do think you willbe testing too early. And I am a complusive tester. I would try to wait till 10 dpo at least, and then only test with a FRER.Read this about timing pregnancy tests!

Hi there!!! Your chart is a little wonky.

You have two positive OPKs...in vastly different places.

Your temp hasn't shifted really yet. And you don't have a lot of CM data recorded. I would say you will see a jump in the next couple of days, or you might still be waiting.

Since this is your first cycle after a m/c, it may be a while, and it may be a little strange. It looks like your body is gearing up for O and not quite getting there.

I hope that helps!!

I don't have a lot CM recorded cause I don't have much CM to speak of....I only record when it is clear what kind of CM there is...it's usually pretty ambiguous.

Thanks for looking at my chart! I don't think I O'd yet, either. And now I'm out of OPKs...and I can't tell if I am fertile based on CM...guess there'll be a lot of BDing in my near future...I really wanna catch this egg.

good morning and for all!

i hope everyone is feeling healthy and positive today!

i feel good but absolutely normal. no symptoms, no pms. the only weird thing is that i've been waking up a lot at night. however, i think that has much more to do with the fact that our 50 and 80 pound dogs have begun sleeping with us again since it got cooler. one time last night i woke up with dh sprawled over more than half the bed, one dog taking up where my head and torso should go, the other along side me pushing me off the edge. i was curled up at the foot of the bed clinging to the covers. it also makes me think my temps may not be the most reliable right now.

according to my chart i'm supposedly 12 dpo (normally my LP is 14-15 days). i still am suspicious that i ovulated 4 days later than my chart says, but we'll see.

post #166 of 526
flitters, With the typical disclaimer of not being an expert, I think you o'd when FF says you did because of your cervix position. You don't have your bd-ing history, but I assume you bd'd around o-date and maybe your cm got confusing around that time, which could be the reason for the conflicting cm data. Also, I have been doing a dip in temps 3dpo for the past few months somewhat similar to yours. Just my 0.02 FWIW. I hope you get that BFP!
post #167 of 526
thanks coleslaw - i appreciate the feedback! the temp dip definitely confused me, especially since it went along with a pain that could have been O or gas, not sure. i hope you are right that FF is right - just to reduce the waiting time! my cycles are often 30 days but rarely shorter. if AF stays away, i'm planning to test saturday morning.



i republished my BD history on my chart - i had turned it off again when i showed a friend who probably doesn't want that much info. what you said about the sex making my CM confusing is a definite possibility. especially this month when my EWCM was much less obvious than normal with no significant lifestyle changes. :

post #168 of 526
Flitters, I agree with coleslaw too. I have a dip 2-3 DPO also.

I still haven't O'd however. And it doesn't even look like I am close from cp, cm and my ovulation microscope. : Still hoping I will O sometime soon. The latest I have gone is cd22 so that is next Tuesday at the latest. Patiently waiting...(and bding of course )

post #169 of 526
oh wow naturegirl - maybe this is pretty "normal" then? i've monitored CM and CP before, but this is my first month temping so i have nothing to compare to it. i looked at chart galleries, but i can't really tell what's a fluke and what's a pattern.

i hope you make it over here from pre-o with good CM and good BD and that you don't have to go back!

post #170 of 526
Thanks Flitters. I have had that post-O dip the last two cycles at least.

It is still looking like a few more days until O for me. My cp and cm are definately not in fertile mode. Hoping for some EWCM here soon! The things we yearn for...: :LOL

Good luck to you too!

Should I test or should I wait?

I am 14 dpo today. I've already taken a pregnacy test at 12 dpo, got a BFN result. So I'm hesistant to waste another test. I did have spotting 8 dpo, faint nausea... Temp was down below my coverline yesterday, but I DIDN'T start, which has never happened before. It's back up this morning... I'm obsessively checking my underwear to see if AF has arrived yet. :LOL

So should I test or should I wait a few more days. Oh, and I did have a natural progesterone shot at 6 dpo. That may be artifically lengthening my luteal phase, I don't know. Anyone BTDT?
post #172 of 526
oh laurata - i'm really keeping my fingers crossed for you that AF stays away! it sounds like you had some good symptoms, but i don't know a thing about progesterone shots or your temp dip.



i'm 13 dpo and i think i have pms.
well, from the moment i woke up i've been very emotional and uncoordinated and i had little twingey sensations while i was running around.
i expect AF to arrive tomorrow (which would confirm the FF O date)... if not, i'll test friday morning, if so, back to pre-O!

post #173 of 526


Flitters, Laurata -- hope AF stays away! I've got my fingers crossed for you both!

post #174 of 526
Laura, If it's not too late, I vote to no testing. Whenever your temp drops below your coverline, especially at this stage of the game most likely means AF will be here. If you test, it's a guarentee that she will show up a minute after you get a BFN, which ALWAYS adds insult to injury. I am not saying this to be negative. I hope your temps go back up, but I also want to save you from what many of us have gone through. Good luck!

And good luck to you flitters!! And everyone else waiting, and waiting and waiting...:

Thanks coleslaw. To clarify, yesterday my temp dropped below coverline, but today it back up again. I've so been there with AF arriving 5 minutes after a BFN, it happened several times when I was ttc my second. I haven't tested yet, trying to decide if I should save my money, wait a few days, or what...

Flitters, and everyone else who's waiting, GOOD LUCK!!!
post #176 of 526
Laura, I am Soooo happy your temps went back up. I can't wait for your BFP post!!
post #177 of 526
Hi everyone. I think I can come to this thread now ( altho I am still getting the lingo down).

I am cd14 ( I think, I have to look again at my calendar). I have another 2 weeks to wait...this is why I'm here!

Good luck to all of you!
post #178 of 526
Jeez, I feel like I've been here FOREVER! Can it be that it's only been two weeks? But still, not even a sign of af, and she was due today, I think. So, tomorrow it's off to the drugstore. Wish me luck!
Laura, glad to see your temps are back up. Hope that progesterone shot did all the things it was supposed to do and nothing it shouldn't do. LOL Did that camouflage my vast lack of knowledge when it comes to progesterone? Anyways, to you.

Welcome Bearsmama! Hope your wait is painless and fruitful.
post #179 of 526
Dalaimama- Good luck!
Laurata- You too!!!

I'm at CD31 and I think I FINALLY ovulated. (Though no coverline yet from FF) That puts me at 6DPO...with a 17 day LP. Soooo....I will not be testing till probably around the 21st-ish. Seems like forever! But, my MIL is coming for a visit from Turkey this month, and my mom turns 50 next week, grandpa turns 75 a few days after that...we will be celebrating a lot, so time will fly. (I hope.)

Good luck, ladies!!! How are ya'll feeling???
post #180 of 526
Hi Ladies, I'm here for real now, pretty sure I O'd yesterday, so its a long haul from here... If af doesn't show by Thanksgiving, I will test then, what a great thing to be thankful for if BFP! If not, I can be thankful for wine.... The good omen is that I am going to my good friend's home for dinner that day and that's the same place I went the day after my last BFP (so maybe I should test the day before? getting ahead of myself here).

DalaiMama - good luck! Sounds very promising!

Katie - ouch on the long cycle, but great that you O'd, it will go fast especially with how busy you will be, keeping my fingers crossed for you!

flitters & laura - any news for us? You two are so close, testing? testing?

naturegirl - are you here yet? I'm hoping we stay in synch as cycle buddies.
