I know that you are supposed to adjust temps when your times are off but can someone remind me how much. I think that may be why FF has shown my O date. I'm sure I have tho.

Looking at your FF Id say you havent Oed yet... you still have fertile cm (watery is fertile too) When that dries up Im sure your temps will rise to show it (and FF wont show you your O day until the third day of temp rise)

Thank you so much to MI Dawn, Happi, Lauren and Grapes for the congrats!! I still can not believe it!!

Happi and Lauren I am so glad to be joining you guys!!

Grapes I am so sorry about AF!: for you that you get that BFP next cycle!! to you!!

LZP OMG!! I can't believe you saw a faint line!! How exciting!! I can't wait to analyze that later!! hehehe!!

AFM... I am doing ok! I had to take DS to the hospital again this morning b/c he is still sick. They did a blood test and hopefully we will find out what is going on soon. I will let you all know. I am kind of nervous about it though. If it's a virus I don't want to get it b/c the fever he was having was pretty high and I could barely keep it down piggy backing tylenol and motrin. I wouldn't be able to take motrin, right?? He has had it for 6 days too! Should I be worried??

Skeeter- I think you've been taking pretty good care of yourself, so i would just drink some extra OJ and make sure to get some light exercise to keep yourself healthy. as far as DS... So glad he is getting some more testing done- fever for 6 days must be so uncomfortable for him, the poor thing, and so stressful and scary for you. what a crappy way to start summer vacation!!!(actually, it's almost July, huh?!)

either way, hopefully, the drs will be able to help him... and they say chicken soup really does help boost immunity and make you feel better faster...

keep him warm and love him up.


AFM,
is it time to go home yet?
Oh- and can someone tell me what this" <3 " means?! i can NOT figure it out...

: that you'll get a nice, clear BFP when you get home. Can't wait to see that beautiful pic!

By the way, the <3 is a heart! On some other sites such as Facebook it become a little heart when you put it on someone's wall.

: CONGRATS SKEETER AND BELOVED!!!! soooo happy for you ladies! wooooo! i haven't been reading the boards AT ALL and was so happy to see this.

LZP - it is a sideways heart! and : for you!

beatingearth, to me it does not look like you have O'd yet... i would say keep DTD until that temp is higher for a couple days!!! of course temps don't tell the whole story, but since your temp is still low and your CM is still watery, i'd keep DTD just in case those cramps are from something else.

i would offer to keep the thread but i haven't been logging on, so i don't think i can keep it up to date! i wouldn't mind some threadkeeper luck, but i just don't have the chance to get online much these days.

afm feeling like i'm starting to get fertile, but my cervix is still low and my monitor still reads low. my temps look slightly different from their usual pattern this month, but in any case i don't think this egg is coming any time soon. i'm going away with DD for two weeks (without DH) starting this weekend, so if i O late AS I ALWAYS FREAKING DO, we don't have a chance this month. come on, egg! HERE EGG!

i just want to ovulate BEFORE day 24 for once. even day 20 would be acceptable! i hate that my cycles are THIS LONG because it just gives me fewer chances to actually try. waiting to O always stresses me out, and the fact that it takes more than 3 weeks is even more stressful. trying to be more chill about it, but UGHHHH i was so hopeful that taking a higher dose of soy would bump O up. i guess next month i'll try the higher dose CD3-7 or even 2-6 or something. if we really end up not having the chance to try this month, i will work harder on getting my diet and exercise routines to where i want them to be.

YYYM- i have the same LONG F-ING CYCLES and it is SO frustrating. like great -if this isnt our "month," then we dont have another chance for another actual calendar month... PITA!!!!! and i am SO impatient. see my pp's! I am hoping for you! If soy doesnt work next cycle for you, have you tried vitex? I tried 800mg daily for the whole cycle in April, and had 35 day total cycle, with O on CD 19- it was awesome! this month i was an idiot, and upped it to 1200mg... and messed the whole thing up. i think you can't take soy and vitex at the same time though, so wait till you stop soy. I will try one more cycle with Vitex, then switch to Soy the following if it doesnt work...

Trying not to get too hopeful, since the line ultimately showed up after 10minutes.... but i will think about it all day!

ETA: just realized you are 35 days anyway, but have a long FP... I have super long- ~50 day cycles... this month will likely be 44 days though. i'm reasearching how to reduce FP without negatively impacting LP... i think your soy might be the way, if vitex doesnt do the trick!

Has anyone seen any threads about exercising and TTC for those of us who are trying to shed a few pounds in the time we are waiting to catch the egg? I did an hour workout this morning (30 minutes of walking and 30 minutes of toning). I feel it's a good workout (at least the walking) that could be done quickly and inside since it's so hot here and could be done even after pregnant. If you've seen a thread let me know and if any are interested we could even start a new one and keep track of lost weight. It could be a support system for those of us who either miss the egg or are working to get in shape to TTC.

Grapes, we'll be running into each other all over the place!!

I think i might take up the upkeep of the thread, since the girl who started it is on a TTC relaxation right now...

here it is - it's weightloss while TTC.. not necessarily only exercise... but it is a good place to go for support...

I mentioned starting a new thread a few days ago, but jenfl if you can do it that would be great. I'm 90% certain that my girls' pox are starting (fevers, naps at 9am, general crankiness x2), and this week may be rough.

I am also pretty sure the spot on my hand was a pox (raised, fluid filled, itched like crazy, is scabbing over) but it doesn't seem to be spreading, so The more I read, the more it looks like it was just a booster pox, so yay for renewed immunity.

ALSO: Spotting at 6dpo yesterday, and hoping it was implantation, not a short cycle. Nothing today, so I'm trying to keep my natural pessimism at bay.

Thanks so much...maybe we could get some sort of post for the next thread that lists all the "members" of the thread and goal/or how much they've lost etc... Similar to the other threads. What do you think?

Oh, and Mae said she would take over the thread some time too so we already have a lineup!
