Good luck first shot photo!!!!

I need something to take my mind off of this whole 2WW thing. Thanks to lurking for years, I knew it would be hard to be patient, and it is ever! I was thinking of telling myself I couldn't test until the whole house was top-to-bottom clean. Even if AF shows up, at least I'd have a clean house.

Haha! Nice! I couldn't do it. I only really can clean like that when the mood strikes me. Although, our basement is super messy....

I am sooo nervous about the blood test tomorrow morning...I'm praying its positive...because AF is really late and, frankly, pissing me off!!!!:

Where are you at in your cycle: I'm unsure. I have had Mirena for almost a year and very little in the way of AF, so I have lost track.
Appointments: Monday the 23rd! Mirena is coming out!
Symptoms if they apply: n/a
Testing: Not yet. Getting a fertility monitor from a friend. Love 'em!
Thoughts: I am thrilled to be trying again. This is the first for my husband and I. We have four between us from previous marriages. We're ECSTATIC!:

first_shot_photo and minsca :

AFM: CD 21, 7 DPO and my boobies are a’ tingling, ladies and getting fuller. Hubby was glad to be a judge. It still may be too soon to have symptoms, but at least we are having fun over here.
The earliest I can test will be Saturday… but… keeping to my word I won’t buy a test until AF is late. Although it is only a brisk five minute stroll to the dollar store.
Boy, if we get a day above 40, I may be tempted! :

Anyone know how ff figures the pregnancy points?

Dh and I didn't bd in the fertile window this cycle and have decided on a mini-break from ttc for now. So today when I went to enter my info in ff, I was alarmed to see that I have 29 pregnancy points...................I mean I thought my chances were really really low. Isn't 4 days before O, with no fertile CM considered a "safe sex" day (ie the chances of conception are really low)?

I'm confused, maybe I need to read tcoyf again...

I wasn't aware that it did that...must be a paid-feature. Looks like you've got a chance!

I guess it probably is a paid-feature. Somehow, I automatically got the VIP edition, it was a 30 day free trial. I didn't even now that is what is was. But it is going to expire in a week. The points are kinda annoying,though, because it is like, either you ARE or you ARE NOT. I wish I hadn't seen that.


Props to you Shwarma holding out this long!!! You can do it! Just less than 2 more days!

ellesmama - I think to determine if you are pregnant or not they look to see if you follow a triphasic pattern. Schwarma has a nice triphasic pattern with a nice implantation dip. However not all pregnancy's have an implantation dip or even a triphasic pattern.
Quote:
What is a triphasic chart pattern? Does it mean I am pregnant if I have a triphasic chart pattern? Do I have to have a triphasic chart to be pregnant?


A triphasic chart shows three levels of temperatures: pre-ovulation, post-ovulation, and then a second rise around 7-10 days after ovulation. Some women with charts that show this pattern turn out to be pregnant. But many do not. Likewise, your chart does not need to show this kind of pattern for you to be pregnant. Whether or not you are pregnant, progesterone, the hormone responsible for raising your temperature after ovulation, generally peaks in the middle of your luteal phase and this can cause this kind of pattern whether or not you are pregnant.

A triphasic chart can be promising, however, because progesterone levels generally increase after implantation (7-10 days past ovulation) in conception cycles, and sometimes this results in a triphasic pattern. If your chart shows a second significant thermal shift that begins 7-10 days past ovulation, Fertility Friend will indicate a triphasic pattern in the Pregnancy Monitor. A triphasic chart, however, is not a definite sign that you are or are not pregnant. It is just increasing your probability if you also have well-timed intercourse. Likewise, you can be pregnant and not have a triphasic pattern. Like all signs of possible implantation or pregnancy, you can really only speculate about it once a pregnancy has already been confirmed.
For an example of a triphasic chart go here

Yes I am a bit chart obssessed this cycle, and reading everything I can get my hands on about it.

So I am trying to figure out if I have EWCM today... well- I checked at 9 am and dug around and nothing... flash forward to 12 pm (after my workout) and sure enough I THINK I find a bunch... but now I think, well maybe it was leftover semen from last night? It was stretchy and not stringy but it also was slightly spiderwebby too... wouldn't I have found this semen this morning if it was in fact semen though? So confused...

I hate checking my CM, well I don't mind the act of checking it. I hate the decifering what it means. Is it semen? is it ewcm? Arghh. I do know (as I like to actually check it) that after I have a BM that it brings out a lot of CM so perhaps your workouts did the same thing? As for is it semen or ewcm... I have no freaking clue.
