barefootscientist- I'm doing good. Sis hasn't popped yet, we are looking at tonight to welcome the baby. She is being induced. Her dh just stays on her laptop but doesn't help to comfort her.

AFM- cd2 today. Still temping. Hopefully we can get a successful insemination the 3rd time around.

how are the rest of you ladies doing?

Anyone want to see an oddity? I was sure I would O on cd13, which is my regular O day. But, my opk on cd14 was, by far, darker than the two days prior. And, of course, I wasn't home last night, so I don't have a temp today to help it make sense. Chart

I think that it is possible looking at your chart. I feel like I have been doing that since my mc in March. If I don't get BFP this month I think I will try soy next month to help it.

Cherrie, I usually O between CD16-20 so we will probably be close again.

We need some good news around here So sorry to everyone....fingers crossed for a good next cycle.

Vivica - I agree, don't see an O yet!

Me - CD11 Chart link http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/MyFFChart

Opk Question - Since this is my first cycle using them, I am still unfamiliar with how exactly they/LH surges work. Does the line get progressively darker or can it/does it go from light to dark right away? Is it usually just dark for one day? Does it go back to light after?

Wife to a wonderful man since June '04, mommy to a beautiful 3 year old son and 1 year old daughter.

not everyone gets a temp dip on the day of ovulation. An average cycle has many hills and valleys. It is only the 3 high temps after that indicate O on the lower temp day. I don't think you geared up to O, just think it was a fluke low temp on cd12 (especially given that you still had fertile CM on cd13). So I think you are going to o soon with the pos OPK, but don't see one yet. Good luck!

I'm at CD5, started taking 120 mg of soy isos on CD3. I'm hoping for a good strong O, preceeded by lots of BDing! That's my plan at least This is my first month charting temps but I think I usually O around CD 17 or 18.

I have a really great feeling about this cycle, for me and everyone! Hoping for lots of BFPs for everyone.

karmab, I am so sorry. That sucks so bad.

AFM, I am temporarily back in the game. If you remember from last week we put TTC on hold because my daughter had chicken pox which I have never had, and I was afraid to get while newly pregnant.

Well... turns out it wasn't chicken pox, but Hand Foot and Mouth disease. It went through my home daycare and all of the kids got it in one form or another. And then I got it too. Everyone tells me that adults don't usually get it, and if they do they get a mild case. I was the exception! I had a fever of 104, the worst sore throat of my life (and I get strep a fair bit) and my hands and feet were covered in blisters. It now looks like I have cigarette burns all over my hands. All of the kids had a much easier time of it.

So the good news in this, is that we can TTC again without fear of me coming down with CP right around the same time we could be getting a BFP. So if I could be moved back to Waiting to O I would appreciate it.

It is CD12 today, and although I haven't temped in a week (with a fever there wasn't much point) I am pretty confident that I haven't O'd yet. Last cycle I didn't O until CD17 and I am hoping for a much earlier O this time around.


ETA: I said we are "temporarily" TTCing because if we don't get a BFP this cycle or next I am not sure what we are going to do. I am applying for grad school for next September so showing up pregnant just isn't going to work. But I would prefer not to have my kids 5 or 6 years apart either. So we will have to see what happens over the next few weeks, and make a decision from there.

Wife to DH (06/10) and Mummy to DD (07/08).

Good luck with the soy and charting!! I will be with you soon.


AFM ~ Looks like the witch will be finding me today. Temp dropped below CV this morning. Although I didn't have really high hopes for this cycle like last...it still sucks.
Gonna try soy this cycle and hoping to convince DH to try Sperm Meets Egg Plan. I think we really need to step up the BDing. Anybody have any experience with SMEP?

Please move me to waiting to O.
