Can I please be added to the waiting to O group? Or do I have to be here a while first?

Thanks for your thoughts SaraMom maybe I'll only BD on CD 20 if I think I might be ovulating according to cm.

So now I'm 6dpo...had a drop yesterday and my temp actually hit 98 today....only 98.03 but still, the only other time my temp has hit 98, was when I was pregnant last summer. Getting ever more suspicious and anxious. Obsessively viewing the chart gallery, my old charts, etc... I almost forgot how neurotic ttc makes me....and it's a little bit more this month since we are really not trying. Luckily, that means I don't have any hpt's anywhere in the house and I am telling myself that I still have another week until I can test but if my temp keeps going up, there's no way I'll last that long.

I am going to keep myself busy cleaning today while everyone is gone to work and tonight there is a BBQ at a friends where I get to pretend how excited I am to volunteer to be the designated driver. woo hoo.

Stevi!!!! I can't wait to hear some good news tomorrow! We might end up in this together.

Feeling O on both sides has been proven, through studies, NOT to be a sign of oing from both sides but of having one really strong healthy O.

Not to say it isnt strong or healthy if you dont feel it, or only feel one side... but if you feel from both thats a good indication.

Hi Everyone!
I'm new to this thread--could I please be added to Waiting to O? I'm on CD 5 right now. I just started temping three days ago. It's been a little unusual though because I'm under a lot of stress (I'm a grad student and about to start teaching for the first time) and I keep waking up really early and not sleeping well, plus I have a cold right now. I just started EPO and drinking green tea to try to increase/improve my CM--I got tons of EWCM last month but my husband was in a different state at the time and I think it was because of a travel-related delayed O. But I have high hopes for this month!

Question about temping, if anyone's reading--I'm a fairly restless sleeper and when I wake up I seem to toss and turn a lot before I'm fully awake enough to temp--do y'all think the tossing and turning will skew the results?

Fiction writer by training, writer/editor of anything anyone will hire me for by trade. Me + D=my girls E (4/2011) and little N, 1/2014.

Maybe a bit... but you should still see a very defined change when you actually O.

Clomid will stimulate both ovaries, producing follicles on both sides. Are you being monitored by an RE? They should have told you about that. Especially if you triggered, both ovaries will release.

About me... if emotions are any sign of pregnancy, I must be pregnant. I have been sooooo irritable for the past two days. : Ugh. I'm only 5dpo, so I'm still waiting.

banana So sorry..

Evergreen Still have fingers crossed for you!!! Good luck!

Welcome, newbies!

Danielle : I enjoy hearing about how things are going for you!! Keep us updated!

sleepingbeauty I'm excited for you! LOL Can't wait to hear how it goes! Try to be patient.. I ruined our proposal by finding the ring.

Me.. still waiting. :yawning: Trying to be chill about it this month, think it's working. EWCM showed up yesterday(cd8), and I think I stressed myself out so much last month that I had pushed back O to cd18. LOL Trying not to dwell on the fact that if we don't get it this month, we have to wait til January. Oops, there goes my stress level.

Good luck, TWW'ers!!! :

kbcain, peachsara, Blanca78, welcome to the group.

Nanette56, I like the poem!

J. Jones, I get symptoms every month, too. For me, I think part of it is the normal pre-AF symptoms that I never realized I had, until now.

SaraMum, GL trying to wait for the POAS. I usually give in by 5 dpo.

sleepingbeauty, good to see you! And happy anniversary!! :

Lyndzies, GL on the insem! As for the O pain, I get them from either side. And I think it might be possible to O from both sides in one month. You never know!

SimplyRochelle, to you. My temp is usually under 98, too. This month is different for me, too.

afm, I'm really not sure what dpo I am, any more. I thought I O'd around August 23, but my chart is all screwy, so I may have just O'd. That would be weird, b/c AF is due to visit on Monday. My temps are high for me, I've been extra exhausted, sore boobs, brushing my teeth makes me want to gag, nauseous, etc. Can someone look at my chart and tell me if they think the temp dip on CD 19 is when I O'd or maybe an implantation dip? My cycles are usually 25 days, so I guess I'll know soon, either way. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/28b36d Thanks!!

Hopefully Mae is right and it's just once nice strong O! Glad to hear you felt the same thing, Tear, and it's not just me thinking crazy thoughts!!!

K, so... I think we're done w/ insems for this cycle. All signs point to O today or tomorrow, so can I be moved to waiting to know?

Thanks!

Congrats MoonFire!!



I'm just waiting... according to my last cycle, AF should show up today. But I'm not getting any signs. I tested at what I think was 10 & 12DPO with nothing. So now I'm 14DPO and awfully tempted to buy some more tests! Thankfully I refuse to buy them in town (very small town, don't really want to share with everyone that we're TTC) and the closest $ store is an hour away.
So at this rate, I'll have to wait until next week. Eeeek! But that should give AF enough time to show up.

DH and I - totally winging life with our four children, DS1 (6.5yrs), DS2 (5yrs), DD (3yrs) and DS3 (1)!

I think you O'd on cd13 or 14. I'm due Monday or Tuesday as well, so we're cycle buddies!!! Good luck! :

Stevi sexyfingers for a Sunday morning BFP!! I'll be testing then too!

Woohoo!! I hope we both get those BFPs!

SimplyRochelle... s I would love to go through my DDC with you!

AFM... 10dpo. I had more twingey feelings yesterday evening. But I'm starting to think they're more likely to be a bladder infection. They just don't feel as sharp or as low as the ones I had with my pregnancies. My breasts are even less sore today. Ahhh well. I hit the dollar store on my home today, so I will be testing in the morning.

Everybody think Reproductive Thoughts!

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

MFG, Congratulations!!!! ::: Here's to a sticky bean and a happy & healthy pregnancy!!

AFM - Need some help from expert charters. I have been waking up (wide awake) at 4:30 a.m. the last few days. I'm usually awake for a good 15-20 minutes before I can fall back asleep, but I don't get out of bed or anything. My normal temp taking time is 5:45 a.m. Should I just take my temp at 4:30 if I wake up or wait until later? I don't want to get an artificially low temp but then again I don't want to get my hopes up for an artificially high temp. Gar. Thanks for any help.

to everyone else in the 2ww!!

Hi ladies! MFG, CoNgRaTs!!!!!!! Awesome news!!

I am getting antsy to test...I'm 8 dpo today. I'm moody, boobs are sore and slight cramps here and there and I have an off and on headache. Also, in a weird way my armpits are kinda sore. Hows that for TMI...hehe.
Hard to tell if that's AF on her way or a little bean. Sigh. LOL I am waiting until Monday to test, I will be 10 dpo then and will believe more in the results at that point. Also, I kinda enjoy the speculation... Here's to keeping temps above coverline!

ETA: Blanca, I don't think my restless sleep really affects my temps much, I am restless on such a regular basis, it is the norm for me. LOL If ya know what I mean. As long as you can still see a thermal shift at O , I think you're doing fine.

MG, we are cycle buddies! I am 8 dpo too. Under normal circumstances I would test Monday too, but DH has a big job interview on Tuesday. We both think it would be too much pressure on him if he knew I was pregnant so unless AF shows up first I am not testing until Wednesday. : for you!
