Good luck to you all!
Awww sorry.... I'm hoping for sept due date (very early sept like my DD) so I think I o'd today... on that sore sore left ovary with the cyst so we shall see what tomorrow's temp does. I"m only temping every other day or so just so i have an idea of O date so we'll see what happens...

I'm due for an ultrasound on my ovary on the 29th of december so I"m hoping they will be able to find a teeny bean in there :P As well as saying that cyst is resolved and won't need surgery.

lol

I understand why its confusing...

My DF is actually away, stationed about 1100 miles away from me... so most cycles I just chart to get to know my body (and to know the exact day my AF is due, as my cycles are irregular, 26 to 32 days... but my lp is a very constant 13/14 days)

However, he comes home in a week and half (and AF starts tomorrow!) so he will be home through O for the first time in over a year (last time was November 2008)

I do not have high hopes, though, because this will be the 7th time (out of 23 cycles!) we have had our timing right with him home... but no luck so far.

I'm out too. I've been spotting for 4 days and today my temperature dipped below coverline. No Christmas BFP for me. Maybe I'll get a New Year's BFP.

Good luck to everyone else!

I took a FRER this afternoon with a 1.5 hour hold at 10dpo. I don't even have to climb on my sink and hold it to the light. There is a pretty pink line where previous tests had been snow white.

There are no words for how grateful I am. It's bittersweet because it was exactly one year ago right now that I was newly pregnant and due in August. We lost the baby right after Christmas. Now I'm due in August again.

Well, if you get pregnant this cycle it will be a Christmas baby anyway... since you would conceive the week of Christmas!

Thank you, all, very much for the support! I appreciate it more than you know.

I am wishing and praying for all of you! Maeryn, happy AF Eve! What is the traditional way of celebrating AF Eve? Are there gifts involved? There should be!

AF isnt here yet but with a large temp drop she should be here in less than 24 hours now...

Im about to attempt to get un-snowed-in and im sure the stress from that will bring her on quite well.

12dpo and a bfn. :-(. It was so easy when we conceived DD- first cycle, no charting. My mom always conceived on the first cycle too. I know I'm only three cycles into this ( we weren't trying in the first but weren't tta either), so I need to give it more time, but I'm feeling so down about it. I feel like we must be doing something wrong. Sorry, just a vent. Thanks for reading.

I so feel you. My DS1 was conceived first try. DS2 was a surprise (they're 16 months apart!). I spent the last 20 months since DS2 was born feeling like I was narrowly avoiding pregnancy at every turn, and now, here I am. Beginning my 3rd PP cycle, two months of "good timing", and no + .

I know it's normal, but it doesn't feel like it is. I guess I somehow felt like I was entitled, or in charge, or in control, or something. It really hit me this cycle, I guess, how miraculous conception truly is.

I want another baby so much. Hugs, mama.

I'm currently not testing (obviously), but continue in the true obsessive way by scrounging the corners of the internet for the best prices on pre-seed, fertilaid, ovulation tests, pg tests.... what are the odds DH will actually agree to buying any of this?

Recommendations, anyone?

All three of my first pregnancies were when trying to avoid... we have been trying to conceive now for... well...

this will be our 23rd cycle, 7th where we actually got to try...

But I am not giving up hope and neither should you! That little one is there waiting (ours even has a name already) but they will not come until they are good and ready.

Thanks, Erin& Mae. That's what I needed to hear. I know a lot of women have been ttc for a lot longer. I should count my blessings with the one pregnancy & just keep trying. :-)

Congrats to VillageMom6!!!

AFM - um.... so I'm finding it next to impossible not to obsess about this stretch (lol, pun intended) of super slippery, thin CM that seems to be present in copious quantities, allegedly after O has been confirmed by temping.

Thoughts? Any veteran mamas have lots of fertile-looking CM following O of their pregnant cycles?

It's just.... SO WEIRD! And I'm obsessing!

Well this, at the very least, is a relief to read. I keep having freakout moments that I didn't O yet (or did yesterday, or today) and that this whole cycle can be taken out w/ the trash.

(As always) thanks for responding, Mae.
