AFM: My CM is still confusing me. I feel moister down there but, the EW is scant. Its mostly watery. I don't think I have ever had fertile CM this early before.

We Shwarma, if this isn't your month, then you can wait it out with me - I had a chemical last month which was so incredibly frustrating and somewhat of a cruel joke...

Ah well, I shall complain not too much - it means my ovaries and fallopian tubes are in the right places at least! I will never surrender! I will win! *squishing sound*

OK, here's the deal: I put in EWCM for the days up to the second rise because I truely had it (even noted it in my 'notes' section) but I didn't like that FF gave me dotted lines- UGLY! So, according to FF, I'm 9 DPO, which is interesting because on the date that it says I O'd, I noted 'cramping' in the notes section- possibly Ovulation cramping??

I'm so confused now. Especially since it doesn't match my CP pattern at all! I was totally SHO on the previous O date! :

Do you have it on Advanced tuning? If so try putting it on FAM tuning and see what happens.

FAM is the method in TCOYF. If it didn't change anything than chances are FF is right.

Shwarma--- This makes a LOT more sense to me. Especially now that you mentioned the cramping. I have heard that CP is not always reliable bc it changes positions throughout the day. Also- I heard that sometimes it is less reliable after you have had one child. This is all so confusing, right!? I would count you at most 10dpo, I think you Od before ff says so.

I agree with Lauren, I think you O'd the day before FF says as well, and then had a slow rise. Which is totally normal too.

Ok. I am CD 14. Here is my OPK (Answer strip test) from today. Does this look like it might be positive soon? (I took another one yesterday and the night before and they were definite negatives) If I ovulate anytime in the next week I will consider it a miracle.

Sweet! THanks for reassuring me. I feel a little more settled with this O day because I started having boob pains (according to my notes, not my memory) a day after. This makes more sense.

Good thing you didn't quit BDing when you thought you were done with O! You've still got a shot! I don't get why FF put your O date there. I like it 1 day earlier, too. I've had a slow rise before, myself.

I dunno; FF is still a mystery to me!

I made a note on Monday that I had cramping, then Tuesday had a headache (progesterone?)...Wednesday cramping again...so who knows?

I just love that I have this supportive community to ponder ovulation with!!!

Oh Shwarma, I am so sorry for the bfn. I have been wondering if your O date was off b/c of the 2nd rise. I see that FF wasn't sure either. Keeping my : for you!

Well, last night I broke down and my eyes out to DH in the middle of the night. I deathly scared that I am pregnant and that the baby isn't healthy, or that I'm going to MC...

If I am pregnant, then I'd about 5 weeks...

I'm starting to feel sick in the morning. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I pray that it is morning sickness...
