No worries, I just want it to make sense I had pretty much given up on this cycle on Wednesday when I first started spotting. The thing is, it isn't typical of my temp to go up during AF. It drops like a stone, then wiggles around in the bottom of my normal temp range until I'm done AF. Of course, nothing about this LP has been normal for me, so I don't know why I'm expecting this be normal!

That's me out this month, so I'm going to start charting as soon as I get a battery for my thermometer.

Alright, This month has been particularly mean to this thread... I think we're OWED a good November!!!! I see a lot of BFPs in our future! Although being newly pregnant for Thanksgiving might not be such a great idea for me with morning sickness but I'll take it!

So this month I am trying baby aspirin and a good multi-vitamin with B complex and my new iron pills for anemia... still deciding on what to use to up EWCM production. Robi has never worked for me before... might just try chugging extra water during O time. If that doesn't work, next month I will add Soy Isoflavones....

What are you all trying this month? I'm curious to see what's going to work for those that get their BFP next month!

Sorry to those who AF got to.

Congrats to the bfp!

AFM: Nothing too new. Went dressie shopping yesterday though! (Take a look!) I like #2 and #6. Didn't like the form-fitting one so much but tried it on to be a good sport. I'm getting so excited!

Also, I might be on my last pill packet this month! I hope everything goes well with the gyn! TMI time: for some reason I've had a *rediculous* amount of CM on my undies for the past few weeks. I also have a pinching pain on my left side, over my hip bone that has been bugging me for about as long. I hope nothing's wrong!!

sleeping beauty, you look great in all of them! my fav is pic #40- the one you didnt like!!

attached to elijiah- i tried baby carrots (cooked in a pan with a little butter, salt and pepper, and a tiny pinch of sugar) this month for the first time and had a ridonkulous amt of ewcm the next day. not sure if that was a coincidence, but i think it was worth trying. i also am a big fan of soy- but i really think sometimes ladies over do it with how much they take. i think sometimes less (as in 40 mg) is more.

Every good and perfect gift is from above.

I think less is more too. Next time I think I will try 60 mg, instead of 75. Maybe My O wont get delayed by 3 days. Like it did this time.

It's funny you should say that because 2 days ago FF thought I O'd on CD18. The crazy thing is that the past 2 days I've had elevated temps (not a huge rise, but still elevated) so now FF moved my O date. I have not had a shred of fertile CM this cycle though and only got negative OPKs so I don't feel confident that O occurred. If it did, I hope it was CD18 because then at least I DTD the day after and there's a possibility for conception. My chart is pretty weird, to say the least. Thanks for the encouragement!!

I know! It's such a pretty dress but totally not my style. I wear baggy, comfy clothes all the time so to have my figure so out there was like wearing a towel to me. Wasn't comfy with it at all!! And I didn't like the boob thing on that one.

Also, I've got my fingers crossed so hard they hurt for your sticky bean! Congrats!

Anyone want to guess on whether I've O'd yet? I know it would have been early, but I have had creamy CM for two days and had EW for the two days before that. I thought I had a + OPK on CD11 but I am wondering if I misread it..Also, last night I could not get in the mood to DTD even though I thought I ought to to be on the safe side. My temp is up a little, but not high enough to make a definitive answer. I don't know why my body has to be so weird now...

Anyway, here's my chart

Hmmm, looks like you might have... Can't say for sure since it looks like a fairly low temp for you for post-O but if it keeps climbing tomorrow, I would say definitely!

beauty- thanks.

gatormom- looks like a possibility and dont worry about last night- you are covered. if you can do it tonight, that's a bonus.

lydiah- if soy really does work like clomid, it is normal to delay o a tad. average o day on clomid is 16 or 17, even in women who regularly o on cd 14.

Thanks Karmab and Attached2Elijah for your in-put.. I guess I will just have to try for tonight to be on the safe side. I just took an OPK and it looks pretty negative to me (I hate trying to look at a scale of intensity!!) Anybody tried the OPK's from early-pregnancy? I liked that they were so cheap, but I'm finding them to be confusing to read!

i only use wondfo opks. they are great. in general though, when in doubt, it's usually negative. a positive opk is hard to miss. do you want to post a pic of the other one if you still have it?
