How do do you now I didn't mean both? lol

I got a positive OPK on the 8th and we DTD on the 6th, 8th and 9th so I am hoping we are good. I have to take a break from the Clomid next month so I am really hoping it took this month

Yes to all of this!

Where are you in your cycle: CD17 (2-3DPO)
Appointments: initial interview with a homebirth midwife on Wednesday! :-)
Symptoms if they apply: Nope
Testing: Nope
Thoughts: I had to fudge my temps from CD1-CD12 haha. I didnt temp during that time since it was AF, but not FF wont give me crosshairs because I o'd much earlier than was expecting and had no early temps for it to go off off. I used my normal coverline and then just fudged in those temps. Once I did that it easily gave me Crosshairs. However, I believe I O'd CD 15 not CD14 because I had O pain and MUCH darker OPKs than the day before. Honestly, it could be either, but my gut says CD15. Heck I'm just happy I O'd at all, let alone CD 14-15. This might actually be a normal cycle for me!!! :-) Hope everyone is having a great week!!!

Krys, what kind of tests are you using? I got a BFP at 9dpo with the pink wrapper FRER (super, super faint) and FMU and a positive digi that same day with SMU (ept brand). How long is your usual LP?

Erica, yay for meeting with a HB midwife! I hope she's awesome! You will be going for a HBA2C right? I just finished Ina May's Guide to Childbirth and it is amazing!! I am really trying to prepare myself mentally and psychologically for this birth (which I thought I did with DS, but I think I will be one hundred times more prepared this go round ).

Jo, at you lol at FF. I'm on my phone and didn't click your chart link b/c it would take forever to load and maybe erase this message, so I can't see it but I'm giggling at the thought. How is your BD timing if you O today?

CD10 was too early to be reasonable, I thought. Because I knew the O date was wrong, we didn't stop BDing just because I got crosshairs- so our chances will be better if I O today, though they weren't too bad before. Here's hoping O comes soon!

And, yes, I actually laughed out loud. DH heard me & had to come in & see what I was looking at on the computer. I tried to explain why FF was all wrong, but I think I just confused him.

I'm just using a dollar store cheapie test. My last LP was 16 days and it seems this cycle is going to be going the same way!

Ah. Ok, then it's probably just too early (not that I didn't test early too ). I'm just saying don't be discouraged by BFNs this early. Even though I got my BFP at 9dpo, my normal LP was 12-13 days, so it was really only a few days before missed period. And I think dollar store cheapies have a good rep so you get your BFP soon!

Monday Check-In: April 12th
Name: Tara
Date: 4/12
Chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/128814
Where are you in your cycle: I believe about 11 DPO
Appointments: April 30th I go in for a pap smear and to discuss my previous miscarriage again.
Symptoms if they apply: Sore BBs, cramping off and on. That's about it.
Testing: Not until the 16th.
Thoughts: I lied on FF and said I got a positive OPK on April 1st (the day it says I O'd) because if I put that it was negative (which it was) it gives me an O date of 2 days later which doesn't make ANY sense looking at any of my previous charts. My coverline would be 97.7 and that is much to high of a coverline for me. My chart looks so much prettier this way right now!

This week better hurry up! If I'm not pregnant, I want to be a lot more proactive next cycle...I'm gonna take herbs every day and everything (I did that when I got pregnant last time as well so I think it worked! ).

Anyone testing around the 16th like me?? (that is if AF doesn't show before that!)

Hey! We're cycle buddies this month!! :-) When are you gonna start testing? I dont think there's much of a way I'm pg this month (which is good since this is our last month of TTA) but there's a possibility so I may test with ya! And even if I don't it's exciting that we're cycle buddies. haha.

I have read all of Ina May Gaskin's books. She is actually how I found Mothering. In the back of Spiritual Midwifery there is a reference section that lists the magazine. Just found it last Fall. Wish I would have had Mothering through my first two pregnancies. Although I strongly believe that Ina May's books are the soul of inspiration for my natural hospital VBAC with DS. Without her books I don't think I could have believed in myself as much as I did. If you haven't read any of her books, they're a must.

Where are you in your cycle: CD 13
Appointments: no
Symptoms if they apply: EWCM
Testing: not till the TWW
Thoughts: not sure where in my cycle I am supposed to BD every other day? I DTD yesterday and the day before so I will probably try again tomorrow. I have been considering using OPK's since I don't chart, but I don't really understand how they work. I also have O pain about 14 days after AF, so I figured I can wing it. Thoughts or suggestions???????

Everything is better with a buddy! I am going to wait until the 23rd to test. Since I am using progesterone AF won't show up on its own so its going to be a very long TWW.

I am using progesterone as well.

When will you stop the progesterone pills? I was wondering about the same thing. With my m/c last month, I didn't start bleeding until I stopped the progesterone. Ugh. So how do I know when I should stop taking it? What are you doing if you don't mind me asking!

Where are you in your cycle: CD19

Symptoms if they apply: sore nipples, strange dreams, fatigue, pressure in lower abdomen
Testing: I'm testing Friday 4/16 at 8dpo, and then will probably continue to test over the next couple days after that.
Thoughts: I'm not sure how I feel about this cycle, as it's my first TTC. So, we'll see. I've been told that we've BD'ed at good times though.

Chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/kmacinnis
Where are you in your cycle: CD13
Appointments: None
Symptoms if they apply: Um, EWCM, some pings a couple days ago.. just waiting to O now. Thought I might get crosshairs today in FF but no luck
Testing: Nope.
Thoughts: I'm feeling good about this cycle because I actually got EWCM yesterday for the first time since coming off the pill, I just hope my luteal plase is more than 8-10 days this time. We've been BDing every day since CD8 and while it's been fun, I'd like to know that I O'd soon so that there's a little less pressure and I can start feeling confident about our timing. I just fret a little because it seems my temps are all over the place right now :/

I'm a twenty-something Canadian girl married to my sweetheart and due in June with Baby #1

This is my second month using progesterone (I was so MAD last month because my doctor was out of town for spring break and the doctor that I spoke with instead wouldn't give me a script for it even though I used it the month before, and of course I got my period before my doctor got back ion town.)
Last time I took several pregnancy tests that came up negative and I wan't having any symptom so I stopped taking the progesterone on CD33 or so. If I had been having symptoms I would have insisted on a blood test first.

Also the first month I used the progesterone pills as vaginal suppositories but this month I am using a progesterone gel. I much prefer the gel but my insurance doesn't cover it and it is very expensive

Okay, I'm due to start on the 20th I guess....anyone want to obsess with me until then? I'm SO tempted to use the early test I bought...like this weekend.

Thoughts: I'm feeling good about this cycle because I actually got EWCM yesterday for the first time since coming off the pill, I just hope my luteal plase is more than 8-10 days this time. We've been BDing every day since CD8 and while it's been fun, I'd like to know that I O'd soon so that there's a little less pressure and I can start feeling confident about our timing. I just fret a little because it seems my temps are all over the place right now :/
Are you vaginally or orally temping? I orally temped my first month and my temps were ALL OVER the place. Then I found out that if you're a mouth breather at night then your oral temps wont be accurate. Anyway, I switched to vaginally temping and have had very consistent numbers all the way along. Good luck!!

Sigh. I laughed too soon. On Sunday, FF said I O'd on CD10 - in my mind, way too early, and with a coverline way too low. Sunday & Monday my temps dropped, and Monday the crosshairs disappeared. "That's more like it!" I thought.

My temp was up this morning, and the crosshairs are back at CD10. Does that sound early to anyone else, considering I usually O between days 12-14? Also, this is the lowest my coverline has ever been, and I don't usually have temps below the coverline, and right now, 2 of 5 post-O temps are below the coverline.

Based on past cycles, I thought it was more likely that I O'd yesterday. I suppose it doesn't matter, because BDing wasn't too bad either way. I suppose this is the consequence of refusing to buy OPKs! And, another irony: I was convinced last cycle was our last chance for a 2010 due date. This early O date puts my theoretical due date at Dec 30

Anyone know if CD10 is *too* early to O? Do you agree with FF's O date on my chart? TIA!

My very late check-in (its wednesday in OZ)
Name: Karen
Date: 14.4.10
Cycle Day: CD18
Chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/kaz
Testing: OPK positive yesterday at 11am, I took another one at 3pm and it was negative??? Wondering if I its false pos?? Only time will tell
Symptoms: O pain for last few days
Thoughts: Well i am already convinced that this cycle is not mine, so im planning my attack for august when we can resume TTC. Starting with appointment with gyno in july and I will probably begin taking herbs in june or july. Im thinking with DH sa results questionable we will need to repeat the test and possibly try IUI. I know I can fall pregnant, clearly I have two naturally conceived babies, I just never thought it would take this long!!
Im also looking for some positives to get me through all this.

Karen, Police officer married to my hero Soldier, mummy to Harry 7 and Riley 3 and , due 10th January 2011 We're living the dream!!
