Started the new thread! I'm going to go through and weed out anyone who hasn't posted in awhile. I'm thinking of clearing out anyone who didn't post last month. How does that sound? I don't have the time or patience to go back more than 1 month!

Jessica - I saw your post... I wonder if FF will end up moving your O date. I think it's more likely to be CD17, based on temps alone. Do you also track CM or CP?

AFM - Spotting started this morning. I'm feeling so defeated right now. I really thought this was going to be our cycle. I know it's not over until AF shows, but I'm already seeing some red spotting. Not a good sign for me. I'm so tired of this. I feel like I'm never going to be pregnant.

I'm sorry Callie, I hope you aren't out. If you are, hugs from me.

I have another pic as well as the ones on the last thread. What do you think? It is an internet cheapie, a Wondfo:

I think I see it on the Wondfo too. The FRERs are easier b/c the pics are closer. I think it looks good for you!

Congrats Lousli! No doubting that pic!

Callie - so sorry about the spotting . I was hoping this was your month too .

AFM - took my last dose of soy this morning, and I'm already getting EWCM. I have a lot of OPK's to use. I also have a Dr. appt. in the morning, which I'm dreading. I might get the pathology report on the baby from my M/C. Worried about what it might say.

Mama~Love - I hope the appointment tomorrow goes well, and whatever news you get helps with the healing process.

suzywan - We don't do "waiting to O" and all that stuff in this group... we're all just TTC until we get pregnant.

Lousli - I'm so excited for you!

AFM - Even though I'm spotting, I'm still holding out hope, as always. I doubt that it'll be possible for me to get pregnant without spotting. I even had red spotting when I was pregnant with DS. I'm not super hopeful, but I'm also not giving up either.

WOnderful!!

AFM: I think 12 dpo. No AF, but several BFN. I'm losing hope and am an emotional wreck.

Hi everyone,

I've been a major lurker here... trying to relax more (which is working somewhat) and have been reading messages from my email subscription which cuts down on internet time but leaves no chance for replies.

Something strange going on here... 11 dpo for me, pretty regular at 28 days for the last few months with temp drop on day 28, af the following day. This month I o'd on day 14, and had low temp at 7 dpo and then two even lower ones on 10 and 11 dpo (today and yesterday). Today's went up a bit but still below coverline (I chart on paper so no link to share). Brown spotting yesterday and then today some (sorry tmi) noticeable clotty stuff... no bright red though. No cramps. Still holding out hope but maybe that's foolish... convinced myself earlier in the month to only test if my temps are still up at 15 dpo... which would be Monday... but I'd like to test today to see what it says... is there any chance that these symptoms are possible with a BFP? For now I'm winning the battle to not test, but not to stay offline...

Hugs for everyone having a hard time right now and good luck to us all!

Callie- Hugs to you

Lousli- Woohoo!!



Mama~Love- Hugs to you as well.

maxnmaizy- Don't give up hope!

Karen- Welcome!

AFM- Still waiting for af. I'm tired of waiting. If it doesn't get here soon I may be due to O during our camping trip which would suck. One reason is that my temps will likely be off because I sleep terribly while camping, and it's so freakin' cold. The other is that camping means that we would have to figure out how to bd while sharing space with our 4.5yo. Ug.
I chose not to poas today. Feeling like at 15dpo (yesterday) it should have showed a strong positive if I were pg. Today is 16dpo and cd31-32.

Lousli!!!!!!

maxnmaizy- sorry mama.

forest~mama- I hope AF shows soon so you can move on to the next cycle.

Mollie-

Callie- Sorry about the spotting. You never know though....

I haven't tracked CM this month (and I'm sort of lousy at it anyway). FF might move my date up, I don't know. I was sure that they'd put it at CD 17. CD 14, while really low, doesn't seem to me like the beginning of my thermal shift. I dunno...we'll see. I just hope that this cycle is longer than last month's 24 day cycle. That REALLY pissed me off.

Callie, thanks for linking my chart and for the new thread, too. So sorry about your spotting! I was so hoping that I wasn't going to read about any spotting from you this month. Sigh!

Lousli, Congratulations!! I love seeing those second pink lines

Maxnmaisy, So sorry!

Forestmama, do you think you could have O'd later than you thought? (sorry if you've already mentioned in another post, I don't have time to go back through the pages)

Mrsh

Mamalove, yay for EWCM . Wow, never thought I'd be excited for someone else's EWCM Hoping all goes well tomorrow.

Kat, I already find charting interesting and it's only been 3 days

So I already have a temp ?. (I should have warned you all ) Is 96.5 really low? And how important is it to temp at approximately the same time each morning with at least 3 hours of sleep? More often than not I'm woken up numerous times at night. Whether it's from DD, DH snoring, or DH alarm. Then I fall back asleep for way less than 3 hours. The time has also ranged between 6:30 and 8:00. Wondering if this temping is even going to work for me.

Andrea- I based o'ing on cm- ewcm ended after the day when I experienced major o cramping and ewcm. I wasn't temping or anything, but I got pg with dd under identical circumstances, so I have a lot of faith is listening to my own body cues. That being said, it is possible I didn't o when I thought, but I don't think it was far off in one direction or the other. Anyway, I'm done thinking about it. Just going to hang out until I either start af or start puking

It looks like AF is starting this morning. Great, so last cycle I had a 10 day LP and now I have a 9 day LP. I'm so frustrated. I'm so tired of trying. I can't believe we're starting our 7th cycle of trying.

I'm going to take a little break from the boards. We're going on vacation next week anyway, so I wouldn't be able to check in while we're gone. Hopefully by the time we get back, I'll be in a better place, emotionally. Right now I just want to curl up in a ball and cry.

Andrea: Thanks for the good laugh I needed that.. so true. Sorry you are having such a problem temping. Have you thought of buying one of those expensive fertility monitor things? I think if I couldn't temp, I'd consider that.

Lilmom: I think we are cycle buddys this month I'm 2dpo. sorry your bd timming didn't work out this month.

AfM: I should get crosshairs tomorrow. Had an extra dip so I think I O'd cd17. so it's 2ww for me. I just not feeling that it's my month. but then again, I was convinced all the signs in the world were pointing to positive last month and that didn't happen.

Oh Callie- big hugs mama.

AAM- Look at this and tell me what you think.

I feel like I should go get a more sensitive one to back it up.

That looks like a BFP to me! You should use a good sensitive test. I was still getting insanely faint lines on my internet cheapies and I got a nice clear positive with a FRER and then a digi last night!

Had my appt. today. He didn't say much about the report, just that it showed a M/C. Well, no shit Sherlock. You think I didn't know that?? He still said to wait 2-3 months, which is BS to me; I'm not.

ETA: Congrats forest~mama!
