So I realized I'm probably not the only one who does this, so I figured we could all plan ahead together...I LOVE figuring out what my EDD would be each month that we TTC. If we catch the eggy next week we'll be due July 3rd! I like that it will be a beginning of the month baby because then in my DDC I won't have to watch everyone else have their baby first!

So what's everyone else's hopeful EDD?

Evie's Mama I like to do that too! If I am pg now, then I would be due June 10. June is right in the middle of winter over here which would be nice as DD was born in the middle of summer!

I've taken a bunch of IC's over the last few days and have gotten very faint lines, but not getting excited yet. I feel like AF is about to start any minute, and my BBs are sore which I havent had since I was pg with DD. We'll see. I just wish I could get a decent line already or AF and then I'd know where I was at! Have contemplated getting a digital test but the are so spendy. I didnt ovulate until very late in my cycle so I could be anywhere from 10 -14 DPO.

Who else is TWWing?

Melly24, if you want to post pics we can all obsess over whether or not there really is a faint line or not!

Melly24 I think I see a line too but is is faint. How many dpo are you?

Evies Mama & So Cali if I O this Sun which is looking likely according to my cbfm my edd would be 28th June!
So Cali just curious as to how you gauge 10 days either side of your edd for delivery. Is this based on previous history? I'm asking only cos I thought if you knew your O date as opposed to basing an edd based on lmp, then the due date would be more accurate?

Your EDD would be MORE accurate if you know your O day, but there is no way to know exactly how long your baby needs to be ready to enter the world. Some babies just need to cook longer than others.

Hey Mamas.

I'd like to join you. Again.

After coming to terms with RPL, after my most recent loss, and suffering too many diagnostic tests which have shown nothing, we're ready to start TTC again.

I'm currently CD2 (I can go in WAITING TO O) and starting a round of Clomid with an HCG trigger.

I'm nervous about the Clomid because I'm already susceptible to horrible headaches and also concerned about the effect it will have on my milk.

BUT, I'm tired of waiting and ready to be completely proactive.

Anyway, good luck to all the mamas and congrats to the newest BFP!

R~Mama to my sweet A 7//07 & bubbly Z 3/12

AND belly.gif due 9/13

Melly Keep the faith! I'm 10 DPO.
Juleslane HH9!!!

AMF: My EDD would be June 15th if this is it. My temp dropped below the CL today which put me in a bad mood, which made me feel PMS-y. I've had cramping all day, but I don't usually have that until the day before or day of AF (Tuesday). So I don't know what's up. DD has a cold and I have to work all weekend.

Runnerbean~ That was part of the ovusoft sofware calculating EDD, it lists the day but then below it shows the range in which you could deliver in.
For me personally i think my next baby will be late and at least 9lbs. My daughter was 1 month early weighed 7lbs 13oz, my son was born at 38wks 3days was 8lbs 14oz.


SparklingGemini~ Welcome Back.


Melly24~ on the bfn

Hi! I figured I'd get in on this one since it's so short.

I'm in the TWW, but, I am not so very hopeful-- My temp dropped two days ago, not below the coverline, but pretty close. Also I'm getting some watery/EWCM again, so. Pretty sure AF is on the way but hasn't shown her face yet.
My LP is doing really pretty this time, though! 13 days so far! I'm excited that the progesterone supps. seem to be working.
Here's a link to my chart:

Back to waiting to O. AF this morning, three days early. I didn't even get to test. If I O'd on CD 14 that means my LP was only 10 days this cycle. I thought it didn't change. What's up???

I GOT A BFP THIS MORNING!

I am 12 DPO, and I think the EDD is June 14, 2 days after my anniversary. (Yes, I always always always calculate it too.)

The line was really faint, but this is the earliest I've ever gotten one. So I am excited and hopeful, but very very nervous too.

saimeiyu~Welcome to the group

foodmachine~ on AF showing up. LP usually isn't suppost to change much at all at most i think it can fluctuate by a day at most. like having a 13day lp one cycle and 12 the next sorta thing.

Hey ladies! STILL WAITING TO O. . . any day now! Urgh hubby has been working late so no bd'ing lately, but this weekend we'll get some business done!! It sucks though, I have little to ZERO ewcm I remember when ttc Finn I had Abundant ewcm!! What gives? Perhaps its becuase I've really only had 5 or 6 cycles, and baby is still really small (9mo) when I concieved him Dakota was 21 mo. Plus Finn is nursing a ton lately (like the past 3mo nonstop 24hrs) so perhaps I am a bit dehydrated.

Besides:
~Green tea
~Water
~Grapefruit
~Carrots
~EPO
~Fish oil

And prayer, what else can you do for lack of ewcm?? It seems that now my LP is a great length (14days), my cm is lacking Urgh, patience please!

Foodmachine - on AF showing up

Burnindinner - Congrats!!!

naturalmamaof1 - Sorry Im not sure what can increase EWCM other than what you've posted. Actually I have heard whisperings of Robutussin (sp?), but its not very natural. Maybe ask in the main TTC forum.

AFM - I am now at least 12 DPO, but havnt tested this morning, and AF still hasnt shown up. Will test again tomorrow, and I still have another digital.

So I hit day 14 of my LP this morning, and still no sign of AF. Which is nice...

But I still don't have a BFP. I tested a few days ago, but it was BFN. So I stopped tested because I don't have that many tests left, and I have no dollar tree to buy cheapie tests. And I feel like if I buy a huge bunch of internet cheapies, then I will jinx myself. KWIM? So I was thinking... Ok, this may sound nuts?

I had gotten one of those darn 20-packs with the Ovulation detector kits, right? Only the directions on the dang thing say that you have to use them up within *30* days of opening the package. I will only be *maybe* about, 7 days into my next cycle, (if I'm not pg and I get AF this weekend or Monday) by the time they "expire". So... Since I don't have a lot of pg tests, and there's no place to buy them cheap, maybe I will just use them to "screen" and only take a pg test if there's a second line? Then at least, if there's a second line, then maybe there will be enough HCG to make the pg test positive, even if the OPK isn't "positive" since it's looking for peak-type levels.

Does that make any sense at all? Or should I just keep the darn OP tests, and use them even if they're expired? Think they would even work?

saimeiyu - I've heard of women using OPKs as hpts, but have never tried it myself so I don't know what to tell you. I'm sure it's been talked about on other threads in the ttc forum though.

saimeiyu~ Are the opks Answer that come in a little tube? I have used them before and i only used them when i knew i was around O time, and used them 2 cycles in a row just fine Ignore the stupid directions of having to use them up in 30days. They will work just fine if past that, just make sure to keep them closed up in the little tube.


Melly24~ on af finding you

CONGRATULATIONS BURNINDINNER!! H&H9 to you and your family!!

saimeiyu:I agree. Keep the tubes closed up and you can use them longer than 30 days.

AFM: When I had a regular cycle and was ttc, I always figured out my DD. Now that I have no clue where and what is happenng w/ my cycle I'm out on this game. I have been pumping at night, while my DH gives DD a breastmilk bottle for 2 months now and I read that if you are pumping and nursing your cycle comes back faster...fingers crossed for that. I'm pumping to stock up the freezer for when I start back 2 work Monday, but if that IS a side effect....BRING IT ON!!!

No, it's not the Answer ones. They aren't in separate packages. It's the First Response ones that come in one big giant Ziplock.

And I tested this morning with a HPT... STILL a BFN. GAH!

saimeiyu - Those are the same ones we get here in the First Response kit. If you keep them in a dark, dry place once open they'll be fine.

foodmachice - Yes this will be our month. We're almost cycle buddies! We can be DDC buddies too
