All this talk of Europe is making me excited- we are hoping to move to Germany in July- my husband is an Army officer. We won't know for sure until a month or two from now... so here is to hoping!!!

Honestly, I don't think it would be as bad having a long LP that it is Oing so far into your cycle...I mean, I'm very impatient with my Oing on CD 24, but some poor ladies (here on this very bored) don't even O until CD 40+ !!! That's a whole lotta days wondering "is today it?", "did O pass and I missed it?", "was that gas or O pain?", KWIM?? I give those ladies props!

Today or tomorrow, but my cycles have been really wonky due to overly high estrogen (we're getting a hold on that problem now), so I don't really know for sure until it actually comes.

Dresden is beautiful! One of my good friends is from Dresden and I was fortanate enough to visit her a few years ago. I loved it there. One of my favorite cities in the world (at least of those I've seen).

Anybody know if 101 fever can hurt a pregnancy at only 9dpo? I got extremely ill Sunday night, :Puke all night, every hour or so. Spent all of yesterday in bed, by evening I was able to keep down a couple slices of cheese and a slice and a half of bread. Took Acetaminophen and it brought my fever down to 99, which is where it is this morning. I also had half a bowl of cereal this morning with (so far) no mishap.

Everytime I get pregnant, I get sick! I had Bronchitis with my first and Strep Throat with my second. I plan to test tomorrow, but the fever has me worried.

43 w/Emphysema - TTC from 2005 - 2013. 2 miscarriages in 2008. Good things do not come to those who wait.

ShwarmaQueen... Browse through FF, see if you can find other charts with 2 day drops for implantation...? It's possible! :

Well if I loose the chart searching then I will register again for the free trial with another email address. Chart stalking other people and making commments about other people's BD timing is my second hobby.

Don't know if these links work but here's a 2 day temp dip. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/Chart...6f7dee1dca318e
http://www.fertilityfriend.com/Chart...5b4dce83ca9ef7
http://www.fertilityfriend.com/Chart...034062d0251315


Minsca London is the most expensive part of the UK and house prices were through the roof. I know that teachers and nurses have found it difficult to get on the housing ladder because of the house prices. But then again they're bound to drop now so it might be the time to buy. Look at all costs and see how much take home pay you'll have each month. Don't forget in the UK the health system is fine so no private healthcare to pay for.

For me if it was London or a town, I would choose the town. Or I would choose the place iwth the lowest house price. The lower you keep all your costs, the less money you need and more family time you will all have. Oh and I'm from the north so I'm blatently biased against the south. They're all a bunch of southern fairies! The north is the place to be.

Lauren you make me laugh. You don't know if normal is normal. Well to be honest anyone being classed as normal is abnormal. I've never felt particularly 'normal' so yes normality must be abnormal.

I know what you mean about timing. Because I don't know what's going to happen I don't like to leave it 3 days in between times (and I 'normally' have a low libido). Now things are looking fertile I'm trying to BD every night. If I don't ovulate soon this is going to kill me!

Cloudbutterfly I did languages at uni and you could tell the people who had taken a gap year and been abroad. They were more mature and had common sense. Lots of my friends can't settle back in the UK after living abroad. You experience so much and have so many opportunities. Travelling opens your mind up to the world and is such a learning experience. I plan to travel with my future offspring as soon as I can.

Kparker, now that is annoying. If only you'd been a POAS addict! Some people do get suprised at how much planning can go into this. For some reason my friend was suprised at my knowledge of my own CM. Imagine some people out there who don't have a root around for CM each day.

Miriam thanks for the positive vibes. My cervix has come down today, but the CM is getting stretchier. I look forward to going to bed now and it means I'm closer to temping again and maybe seeing that shift.

Lauren I lived in Germany for 6 months twice. It's a nice country but careful of the cakes. I put on weight both times I lived there. If you do live abroad and want to learn the language google for FSI free download. A guy's put together a load of free language courses which are in the public domain as they were developed by the US government. Sorry I'm a right language learning Nazi and don't know why everyone doesn't learn languages for fun.

SwarmaQueen I found a 104 day cycle on fertility friend last night. Now that's got to be a downer.

Musicoholic, go on move, I dare you. See people who have wanderlust are such bad influences, we try to get everyone to up sticks and move somewhere new.

Not what I've been taught either. But then again I'm not pg so I wouldn't know if it's wrong.

I'd just keep BDing before, during, and after just to be safe.

Both times I got pregnant, I had intercourse the day AFTER O. But, I also had intercourse before O...

According to FF, your chances are best when you BD before, during and after! So, join the hundred day challenge!
