Can you add me to "Waiting for Flo" ?

I'm on CD 33 now. Tested on CD 31 and got BFN. Still no AF or signs of AF, but no definite pregnancy signs either (except maybe being exhausted for the last week or so). I have no idea when I O'd.... tracked CP & CM, but didn't bother to record it on FF this month. LOL.

I really get frustrated with these irregular cycles. Last month my cycle was only 28 days, the cycle before that was 33 days, before that was 38, before that 30, before that 45, before that 32, so on and so on.... you get the idea. It is so unpredictable, so I really never know when to expect AF or when to think I might be "late".

filiadeluna - moved. I am sorry your cycle is being so frustrating. I am not counting you out on my watch yet though, maybe you just had a particularly late O this cycle

ryleeee - moved!!! Congratulations again!

I definitely think the BFP explosion will continue! There are a few more ladies at the end of their TWW that aren't on the list and I saw some nice looking charts on page one just now.
Sorry about your temp Littlest Bird, hopefully it was a fluke. Keep us posted. When are the rest of the cycle buddies testing? I might on Wednesday. I had a BFN yesterday at 10dpo, I tend to get late positives so I am trying to not get too down about it. Nothing really screaming pregnancy or AF to me, I think my symptoms for both are pretty subtle at this stage in the game.

I try not to test early, it's too depressing. With AF, I can at least start planning my next ovulation.

For all of your chart stalkers, do you think I ovulated on CD 12?

I know that I won't know for sure for another day or two, and to keep on BDing.... but what do you think anyway?

My last cycles I haven't O'd until CD 17 or 18, but this time around I have been taking lots of supplements. I would be really excited if I managed to change my O day by so much (and hopefully my luteal phase will shape up as well) but at the same time we didn't have the best timing.

The discarded temp on CD11 was because I got up to go to the bathroom and forgot to temp first. I recorded it to have it, but discarded it.

The EWCM with a bit of spotting leads me to believe I did O, but the temp rise is not all that dramatic.

Thoughts?

Well according to the rule of having 3 temps higher than the last 5/6 temps, it looks like you did O, assuming you have a high temp again tomorrow.

I wouldn't worry too much about that Abbykins. I have never once counted back from a friend's due date to try to figure out when they conceived. Seems like an odd thing to do to me.

As long as you have privacy and are discrete, I don't think it is a problem to DTD at someone else's house. I wouldn't get busy in someone's living room, but would be ok in the guest room. When you are host to a married couple you can't be surprised if there is some nookie going on, even if you don't want to think about it!

Just lily - I think CD12 is very possible, the trend resembles your previous chart. A couple more days will tell for sure. Your BD pattern looks exactly like mine this month, my O happened a bit earlier than I expected it to also. Lets hope it is enough!

^ LOL oh well let them wonder/speculate... what are they going to do... SAY something to you about it?

Well, ladies, I am on CD 34. I have had some ever-so-slight light brown spotting mixed with clearish stuff. I wouldn't have noticed it if I weren't looking on the toilet paper. I still feel like AF will come by tonight or early tomorrow.

Anyone testing anytime soon? I'd love to see some more BFPs soon!

AFM - I think I may be out for this month. I started spotting on Friday, even though I'm on progesterone. I called my doctor, who had me double my dosage, and I'm scheduled to see her and get an ultrasound tomorrow. The doubled dosage seems to have worked for a couple of days, but now the spotting is back again this morning. I don't think I like the progesterone... since taking it, I've been having a headache and backache almost every day, and today I just feel so worn out. Yuck. Oh, and I took an OPK this afternoon - it was stark-white negative, so that just made it even clearer that I'm most likely not pregnant... though I'll probably still test tomorrow.... maybe. I'm a glutten for punishment, I guess.

Wanted to say thanks for starting the new thread!

Also, I don't have a chart link by my name up there..is this what you need to put one up?
http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3076f9

I thought my temp would rise today, but it actually dipped, which leads me to believe that today is the official O day, CD14. I O'd last month on the CD18, but been taking Vitex and a B complex this month. I've had EWCM for the past few days consistently and I also have gotten faint lines on the OPK for the past three days. I never got a really dark line, though I'm using an old box of Answers that someone gave me..she had them sitting in her trunk all summer, so I'm not sure if they are on the top of their game!

Thanks Sarah! Got the BD of the day done during Ds's nap! Now if my temp rises tomorrow, I'll be in good shape!

I'm pretty sure I am also feeling some ovulation cramps today, though I've never noticed them before...so could just be my mind playing tricks? I've had several bouts of feeling like I was menstruating, but of course that is not happening. Is that what it is suppose to feel like?

I don't think most people know how to count back. There is that extra two weeks that the due date calendars add in. I tried to explain all to my MIL in Jan and just three my hands up in the air and gave up. If it was me...I would be DTD if I was fertile.

Congrats Vivica!! So glad to see one of my CB's got a BFP.

AFM - nothing, nada, zilch...which isn't necessarily bad. I had no symptoms in Jan either. I haven't tested. I usually don't test though unless I have reason to believe.
We had our consultation at SIRM last week. He tested my AMH (ovarian reserve) and my level is 4.7 with 7 being full and 0 having no eggs. So that's one thing I can check off the list. I'm waiting on some autoimmune tests to come back. He wanted to rule out those things since my mc was later at 12 weeks.
DH made appt next week for a SA. And I will be getting an HSG after AF starts.
I have mixed emotions. I would like for everything to be OK but at the same time I don't want to deal with frustration of "unexplained infertility".
