Monday check in:
Name: chibaby
Date:3/30
Where are you at in your cycle: cd30, I believe DPO14
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply: Sore, enlarged boobs; slight increase in cm
Testing: BFN again this morning, I have been testing since DPO10
Thoughts: AF was due yesterday if on schedule, but this is my first month post-BCP and it might not be my normal 28 day cycle. Temperature has been steady/slightly higher and has not dropped. My boobs have been sore for the past 10 days now, and they never get this way before AF is due normally.

Is it still possible to be pregnant after getting a BFN on DPO14? I hope so!

Where Are You At In Your Cycle?: CD51....yeah.
Appointments: Probably see the ND sometime in April.
Symptoms: Sore breasts, so AF is probably going to come....eventually.
Testing: HAHAHA, no.
Thoughts: Something has to change. I have lost weight, I eat better, I am working on reducing stress still, etc. Maybe I am having this long cycle before it snaps back together??? What's the likelihood of that?? Do I have the ND run more blood work, do I try Vitex now?? When do I give in? Should I wait another 6 months after DH is home?? I have a lot of thoughts

Where are you at in your cycle: CD6

Symptoms if they apply: None

Thoughts: I'm a little curious about my pre-O temps. They have been super steady since AF arrived--much different than last month. Not sure if anything pre-O really matters that much anyway though. Still have my : that this is my month.

So thankful for my DH and beautiful DD (21 months TTC, now 4 months old)  TTC #2 while BF 
I am one lucky lady!

I guess I'm casually coming in here, hope there's room for a newbie. DH and I aren't really TTC, but we're SWH. I'm keeping track of stuff on FF but not doing any temping.

Where are you at in your cycle: i think around post o, CD18
Appointments: no, am due for my annual but was hoping to just get pg
Symptoms if they apply: no
Testing: determined not to unless I start getting symptoms or am a week late
Thoughts: I dunno, we wanted to simply SWH, but last night DH asked if I was late in kind of an excited way. I'm not even close to being late so it's funny that he is thinking about that.

Where are you at in your cycle: CD20
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply: Watery CM, a little bit sticky back on CD17 (clear but stretchy) but no real EWCM, FF says that all this watery discharge means that I'm having fertile CM, I'm not convinced. It also says that I ovulated on CD16, but I'm also not convinced.
Testing: FF says that my next period should come April 11th, so I'm not testing until the 8th or 9th.
Thoughts: Is there any reason why I wouldn't have ovulated this month? Would the Mirena make it so that I don't ovulate the first month out? Send some : that I'll be one of those women who conceives first cycle off of IUD!

I hope so! I just have a sinking feeling that I'm not getting pregnant this month

Since I'm not sure about when I'm ovulating or whatever, I don't even know when and how often to BD. Every other day until I get AF/BFP?

Glad you mentioned this--I just posted a thread in Family Planning asking about CM and BCP. I feel like I had way more EWCM when I was on BCP than I do now, which doesn't make sense...silly hormone-altering pills.

I do think its possible that your body is adjusting to the changes and working on getting back on track. I don't think any of us can tell you when to try vitex or anything else, but I think if I was in your shoes I might give it a shot now. At least if it messes with your cycle, you'll know and you can stop using it before your dh gets back. I think that's my biggest reason for not jumping into things now, if it doesn't work I lose a cycle trying...but if dh wasn't here I might feel more free to try different things while I was waiting for him to get back. kwim? Lots of hugs to you.

Dry socket must be really painful . Its good to hear that the meds are not messing with your temps. One less thing to worry about anyway.

Where are you at in your cycle: cd 24
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply: EWCM past week and now abdomenal fullness
Testing: n/a
Thoughts: I was pretty sick around the time I normally ovulate (CD 14-15) and was also on antibiotics. My ovulation seems very delayed and I'm pretty impatient. It's nice to look at other people's charts and see that I still have a chance to ovulate and get pregnant this month. And I just realized that if I get pregnant, I'll be due right around Christmas and would get paid for our 2 week break!

Miscarriage at 6 weeks on 1/11/09, DS born on 6/22/10, DS born on 5/31/12, and new baby due 4/2/14

Where are you at in your cycle: CD 26, 4 or 5 DPO

Appointments: 3D ultrasound coming up in a couple weeks to check out how deformed my uterus really is, and CD3 blood tests even sooner (depending on when AF shows--hopefully never! )

Symptoms if they apply: Lotsa that "leaky" feeling downstairs, zit city, cramps here and there

Testing: NEVER!

Thoughts: I still don't know what day I O'ed. I still think it was CD 21, even though FF says it's CD 22.

That is a good point. I guess I will try and go into see my ND in a couple of weeks. Unfortunately cannot swing it this payday with rent and tuition. I need to get more Vitamin D drops anyway

I am just totally scared it will screw my system up more.

(Copied post from Obsess thread)

Good morning ladies....I got two faint BFP's this morning!!!!

AF was late again this morning, so I got up and tried two tests. After staring at them for five minutes and not seeing a thing, I got discouraged and decided to get in the shower. Much to my suprise, about 15 minutes later I passed by the nightstand and saw two faint lines on both!! I tested with a FRER and a $ Store test...the FRER was very faint, but the $ Store was a little darker. I even had DH look at them to make sure I wasn't delusional, and he saw the lines as well!

I am going to hold off the party until I get a darker BFP, hopefully tomorrow! There is hope....I (think) I am 15 DPO today, and this is the first positive test I've received.
