Welcome xekomaya!

Well, still no AF or any signs of anything, although, my uterus feels very heavy and crampy, but in the stretchy kind of way. I have taken tests almost every day this week with a BFN..... I think the sensations may be in my head....

Oh well, I will just keep waiting it out.

I was told I had PCOS too and was able to regulate my cycles with acupuncture and diet (low sugar, carb...ect.) and conceive my dd on my own after 10 unsuccessful months on Clomid.

Good luck to you! (everyone)

Teneal...You just made my day/week/month/year! I had no idea you could take clomid and bf! You sure did go through a lot to get pg...I am so happy you have your beautiful child. I was really lucky and got pg on my first round of clomid. My body actually reacted to it and I got 1 follicle. First one that I know of.

Chloe'sMama...I tried acupuncture to regulate my cycles too but it just didn't work. I would bleed every now and then but wouldn't O. Did it help you O or were you Oing before?

Lovinlife, I was not Oing each cycle, but it was helping me regulate how often I had a cycle. Once everything was fairly normal I started Oing almost every cycle. It was a pain to wait, but what else can you do? I am just hoping it is not so difficult this time. I think the diet made the biggest difference.

Yeah, I don't tell dh about all the tests I take. I'll only tell him if I get an early bfp or if I hit 12dpo and then he can know before I test. He is not impressed with my early testing habit

this morning, but I'm still hopeful since it's only 10 dpo.

Last pregnancy I had major symptoms from about 4dpo to 9dpo and then nothing. I had totally convinced myself that I wasn't pregnant and was surprised to see a positive test on 14 dpo. I had crampiness and some nausea last week that has tapered off, so maybe the same this time? We'll see. Going to wait until Tuesday to test again.

10dpo, bfn (I think), I did see a line, but it's probably an evap line because that's how it goes for me. I keep getting all kinds of weird CM, and can't tell if I for sure O'd or not, both HPT's and OPK's are negative (well i didn't use OPK today or yesterday) anyway, I'm super crampy and icky feeling, and I'll probably get AF while were on vacation at the beach and then again in August when were at the beach for a week again.

I hope everyone else is doing well, and staying sane waiting to test.

We aren't officially ttc yet. My cycles haven't become normal yet, but we aren't preventing and are definnitely having fun. My youngest turns 2 on Friday, and while I've had a few cycles, they have all been anovulatory. I think I finally ovulated this weekend, but I don't believe my LP will be long enough. I may try some vitex soon to help regulate. I'm getting excited about the idea of having another baby. This will be #4 for us, and our last.

feeling you! I think I saw a line, too... but you know there's only so much looking you can do that's helpful.

I just got done reading "Real Food for Mother and Baby" by Nina Planck and it was awesome - have any of you read it? If we aren't pregnant this month I feel a lot more prepared for next month! Her fertility advice is simple and easy to understand. Highly recommended.

What does she recommend for fertility? It sounds interesting!

SoCaliMommy: You can put me in "Waiting to Catch the First PP Egg!"

I've already had PP AF's but not sure if I have O'd. I have just been spotting/having AF, then a week later it starts again so I don't know what's going on!

By the way..I am a So Cal mommy too! :

12 dpo. Nothing but an evap line... We'll see if AF comes.

ammiga: Real Food for Mother and Baby says a ton about fertility and womens diets in general, but some of the interesting things were that drinking whole milk can help you conceive (skim milk can cause ovulatory infertility), and that we need to eat more fat than most of us do. Stay away from refined carbs, take 800mcgs of folic acid instead of the recommended 400, eat red meat if you can, etc. She breaks down all of the nutrients we need to get (and stay) pregnant and tells you which foods to eat to get them. Its very no hassle and easy to read - LOTS of good stuff on male fertility, too.

Oh, I guess I could have introduced myself!

My DS is 7 months. AF started back for me when he was 5 mo. I am just finishing a cycle, or I guess just starting a new one. I'm waiting to O.

DH and I just decided to let things happen as they happen. So I'm not charting very consistently, just sort of paying attention to CM and the occasional temperature. I'd PREFER to get pregnant in October, but I certainly wouldn't mind getting pregnant ... well, next week I guess!

I am on the mild end of the PCOS spectrum, so I have never had regular cycles (like 4 cycles a year was a lot). Having 3 since April is actually really good for me!

Still no internet at home yet, on my parents pc! Only posting to say no need to test for me this cycle as af arrived at 8dpo, better than 3dpo the last cycle, but still not enough to have me in with a chance. Cest la vie, it will happen when it's supposed to happen

I need some opinions on when I should test... sorry it's long, I know the whole situation is kinda inconsequential...

The very first possible day I could have conceived (100% accuracy ) is the 20th of June.. i *think* I O'd the 21st or 22nd. That was Sunday or Monday, CM dried up by Monday/Tuesday. Suddenly, I have more fertile fluid, cramping, stretching, and just general "feelings" making me of course want to run right out and test, but I guess I'm only 9-11 DPO.

With my first, I got a bfn @ 12dpo, and bfp at 20dpo - no test in the middle. I want to test frequently enough that I get a good due date, but not too much since I don't have a source of cheap test. Maybe I should order some online...

Maybe Friday (12-14 dpo) and then next Monday if its --? And then, ya know, every 3 days until I get a definitive answer? lol

Well, my temp dropped today by over .7 degrees and I'm cramping. I'm 8dpo, and usually get af at 9 dpo, so it's not looking good. I guess b6 didn't kick in this month
