OKay....here we go again!

Please move me to waiting to O!!! I am on CD 1 !

This is our first cycle after MC. And it's rather achey. I feel like my insides are going to fall out. EESH. But this is normal to me, so no worries or concerns. IF we do get pg this cycle our EDD will be Jan 9, 2010. Hopeful a little bit?!?!?! HAAHAH!

I haven't been chatting bc I've been boring for the past few weeks, and am looking forward to getting back in the game with you ladies! Hopefully all of us will be in the Jan '10 DDC together! YAY!

Starting to feel like I should be in the WTF is going on category...


AF was due today...she's nowhere in sight but the test i took today was unreliable. it was a blue dye (i know i know but it was the ONLY one the store had). It was positive but only in the skinny-fake-false pos kind of way.


I am 100% walking my butt down to the drug store a few blocks from my house tomorrow to buy a FRER as long as AF doesn't show first thing in the am.

Of course it'll probably start 5 min after i buy the damn test....I just don't know

I literally keep flip flopping every 30 min weather or not I think I am preggo!

me, dh and 2 boys = our family (oh and a cat...who is also a male...lol)

Well i am home after spending three wonderful days at the beach! And I am soooo happy that you got your BFP brichole1214
Now heres to many more BFPS this week!!

Im on CD10 and have started cramping, i havent temped yet and may get back into it tomorrow, or maybe not, do you ever get the feeling of being exhausted by the whole ttc thing?? I havent even bothered with any supplements either, mostly cos of nightwork and then being away. I took an opk today because of the cramps it had a second line but it wasnt positive, but i am wondering if i may O earlier than CD23 like last cycle fingers crossed. DH gets his SA results tomorrow but i am completely over the stress of TTC. My mum asked me today why I think im not falling pregnant and I felt like screaming at her, like seriously how do you answer such a stupid question!!

Thanks for the new thread.

Hollytheteacher that sounds really positive - hope you get a very clear line soon - keep testing

12dpo today and not feeling very positive. While I have had some signs that are different from normal cycles, I am also starting to get my usual signs that AF is on its way. I should know something by tomorrow though, but I won't be surprise if my temperature drops tomorrow. If not I will test tomorrow.

What is an anovulatory cycle? I didn't ovulate?

Hugs toevery bfps and those that feel that r stuck hanging upside down on this ttc roller coaster.

SO took the job in chicago. I decided not to move with him right away. That's a huge move for my kids... no family there... this is a hard time. If we can make it through this we will only be stronger for it. We talked about a lot of things and I am so happy I found this man. Sad that I won't be moving right away but that was my decision, I brought it up, I have to do what's right for my kids and not put them in complete shock.

So I will be lurking probably not posting. He is moving may 1st. I'll be going with him to help him settle since the kids r supposed to be with their dad that week. I will visit in june..if we can wait that long lol. Then decided when to move up there.

Trying to with SO my dd3 my ds 2 dss 7 dss 8 and 2 chinese creasted's

Holly that sounds promising though, more so the lack of AF than a positive blue dyd test, please test again!

I got yet another BFN today and even broke out my clear blue digi because I convinced myself that the ICs were a bad batch and didn't even have a test strip. Durr. I'm 12 DPO and my temp is climbing higher which annoys me since I know Af is on her way.
whatever tiny spotting I had yesterday is gone so now I'm in that limbo waiting for

Good luck to everyone testing today!

thanks ladies.

I think i might go buy a thermometer and start obsessively temping this cycle.

*sigh*

The thing is, if i do get pregnant this coming cycle it will ruin our January vacation plans but I feel like if i don't still try it will never happen ughhghghg I thought TTC was supposed to be fun and blissful and rainbows and butterflies lol.

please move to to waiting to o (which should be called "oh great SHE (af) came again unannounced")

I'm sorry Holly. It sounded hopeful.

I"m cautiously optimistic that my cycle is back to normal after the mirena. AF is completely gone, with no weird spotting or anything after it ended. I'm on vacation rigth now, but I think I'm going to start temping when i get back. I suppose it can't hurt to try!

Congrats to all of those now expecting December babies!

ahhhhh yeah. i think there are a bunch of us feeling pretty beat down with the ttc, for all sorts of reasons.

auntie graciously saved me from having to make the decision of when to cut the progesterone. unlike last cycle, when she didnt show until 4 days after i stopped it, i woke up yesterday with a zit and a headache and spotting, even though i had taken it that night. so that's that.

Karma, that's good you didn't have to wait for AF... at least on to the next cycle sooner. I don't know, everything is such a lose-lose sometimes. It is exhausting isn't it? I don't think I'm ready for another cycle and dealing with O and OPKs and DH and all that.....ugh, so much work.

brichole-- YAY!!!!

Holly, so sorry hun!

Michelle-- temps climbing higher and your sure AF is on her way??? You're not out till she shows!!!

AFM-- CD 33, either 18dpo or 12dpo. Feeling crampy on and off. Tested yesterday. BFN. Just waiting for AF. I expect her wednesday. Two days to go. Not sure what I'll do this coming cycle. Maybe try charting? It sounds like a lot of work. Maybe I'll try to just take this cycle easy and not obsess. Wouldn't that be nice! Haha... Hope everyone has a great day!
