Amen!! My DH was watching me put info into my chart online one day and read BD on it and was like whats that? I told him its Baby Dance and explained its DTD and he thought it was so funny. So from then on he calls it Baby dancing and laughs at himself when he says it. . . It doesnt take much to entertain him thats for sure!

BTW- Whats up with my chart?? It doesnt look like anything is happening. So confused.

hmmmm....it looks like it might be coming up again... are you having anymore EWCM?? It's hard to say because all the info is clear dots. Do you think you missed the O bc you didn't take it at the same time???

Lauren, maybe you are gearing up to O? Sounds like you had watery cm, almost ewcm. Next time you see shampoo-ish cm (or ewcm for that matter) you better jump your dh asap before it disappears!


: lala!


Shannon, I think you may have already ovulated. Your chart is almost identical to last cycle, except the dip is a day earlier. Looks like last cycle it took a few days to be clear too. I hope it starts to make more sense soon.
ETA: lol on the bd story, does he do a dance when he says it?

Yes DH does a dance, a rather "dirty" dance move if you know what I mean. . :

Shannon, I swear I typed this already somewhere but now I can't find it... but I think you od on Monday and the tues/wed temps should be discarded. See if that maybe does something else. It looks like they were not as accurate as the other ones anyways, right?

I like to check the charts too . Speaking of which, binkin I just checked yours. Lots of hugs to you, so sorry AF showed up. I still think the higher temps are a good sign that your cycle is improving. : for this next cycle!

Pea, thanks for the thoughts. I think it's all a good sign, too, so I'm trying to tell myself that I am overall healthier and likelier to have a sticky baby soon! I hope! This cycle is a Cheri cycle... would give me the right due date. : for you, too, lady!

Thanks binkin. I just looked at your chart again and noticed that your temps haven't actually dropped below the cover line yet. That's weird right?

:BAH!! I was THIS close to spitting my hot chocolate out all over the monitor!! Pee on real sticks!

Please warn us next time you want to make a funny so we can put all hot beverages down first!

Thanks ladies, I am relieved to say that I have now used up all the tests in the house now and don't plan on going to get more anytime soon. (That is one way to solve it, at least for now)
