I am on CD 35 here...took another test today and still negative.  Also had a tiny bit of spotting, so I don't know if AF is on its way or if it is something else.  I don't know if I am pregnant or if the month of sick toddler nursing all day and night has messed up my cycle.  Only time will tell I guess.  I was much more patient before I got my PPAF, I was so used to not getting it and not worrying about it.  Now I can't stop thinking about it!

Sigh. AF came last night. It was CD 30 so I was really hopeful, my cycles are like clockwork and average 27 days. The longest cycle I've had in the past year was 30 days, and that was only once. So of course this month would be a long cycle, just to get my hopes up. 

 

Anyway...I shouldn't be disappointed, it's only our first month trying, but I actually am. We got pregnant the minute we tried with DD so this whole trying-and-waiting thing is totally unfamiliar to me; I really expected it to happen the first time we tried again!

Sorry, another update.  I got AF this evening, on CD 35.  At least I know what is going on!  So you can move me to waiting to O.  Not that I will have any idea when to expect it with these silly cycles.  I guess we will just try to DTD every other day and go from there!  Good luck everyone!

Sorry about your disappointment!  We had an easy time w/#1 too, it's hard to accept that we might actually have to wait to get #2!!

I'm glad you are content just knowing, for now....I'm still waiting to know if I O'd, or if I'm not O'ing at all, or if AF is coming, or if I need to see the Dr, lol...

I just started temping recently, and would like some experts to take a look at my chart.  FF is not detecting O yet, but I think it's because my CM hasn't been fertile...but my temps jumped, and are still high.  I've been super bloated, crampy and irritable these last couple days.  I hope it's O, I just want this cycle to be OVER!  What do y'all think?  (no temp today, my thermometer disappeared...I have a feeling that a certain little boy may be responsible, lol)

Looks like it to me!  A couple more days of high temps and FF will probably mark O for you, yay!

Thinking good thoughts for you, KaliShanti

 

Welcome to finsmom and any other newbies I may have missed!

 

SoCaliMommy, thanks for sharing your blog link! How are you feeling? Any updates?

 

As for me, my brown spotting and dull cramping never turned into anything! I am so frustrated! I even took a couple of pregnancy tests just in case, which were negative! As of the end of this month, this will be the longest I've waited for PPAF after all 3 of my kids. Not surprising, since ds has yet to sleep longer than a 3-4 hour stretch at night, and nurses for probably 75% of the hours between 8 and 7! Anyway, we'll see what happens. I feel like my body has been gearing up for ages, with fertile CM, cramping etc, but so far nada!


Peaceful mama to three blissfully-birthed and incredible small people: dd10, dd7 and ds5. Always awed and so thankful to be a midwife.

Congrats to all the BFPs!

 

Please move me to the 2ww, too!

 

I think I am 2 or 3 dpo. Everything except my temp says I'm 3 dpo, but my temp says 2 dpo. I'll be curious to see what the software says tomorrow morning (assuming my temp tomorrow is still high, of course). Any ideas from checking out my chart would be happily accepted. :)

Woot!  Please move me to 2ww!

 

I logged in to FF this evening and there was a note saying: 

"Note: Your chart data does not allow ovulation to be pinpointed to within a 24 hour timeframe.
Your temperature suggests, however, that ovulation may have occured between CD 99 and CD 103."
  today is CD 108 biggrinbounce.gif    I'm so happy that this cycle may soon be over!!  Maybe a baby will have been made...but my CM was weird and BD wasn't timed exactly, so I'm not getting my hopes up.

Hahaha. That's totally me too.  I've got an '07, '09 and I want an '11.  The good thing is, I think if I don't get pregnant this month that the pressure will be off just a little, especially since I'm not really keen on a Jan or Feb birthday.  So ya, I don't think you're weird at all!

 

PS SoCali, will you please move me to 2WW.  I have no idea when I have/will O, but I'm on CD 17, and last month my cycle was 33 days, so I'm right around there. Aghh!

blissful_maia--sorry, mama!  it does sound like your body is gearing up!

 

afm--went to the GYN to get some labs done to rule out PCOS, mainly, and was told that I need to wean DS in and she could give me the meds to bring on AF and dry up my milk.  Of course she knows my "approach" but I listened politely and then told her I would continue the alt. methods I am using.  Ugh.  I am so far from ever taking the meds she suggested, if she only knew.

Hello everyone. I'm still in the waiting to be ready section, but I finally got AF! It only took 52 days! That was my first post-IUD cycle and it was driving me crazy how long it was. Of course, little did I know that I'd hop on here and see mamas with much longer cycles. blush.gif

 

Good luck to all of those currently trying and sticky vibes to you lucky ones out there!
