New thread loods great, Rosie!  Thanks for starting it.

 

Northstar - Looking for an update!!!  Taken any other tests???  Got any OPKs in the house?  They can be positive if pregnant, too (but be warned, they aren't as reliable).  I'm an enabler, I want you to pee on something!  :)

I used  a blue dye test with reliability but only when dipping not peeing directly on it.  Every time I peed directly on it the whole spot went blue and tricked me!  Good luck!

Love the title and look of the new thread, Rosie!  Thanks for being the May Thread Queen.

 

Northstar, let me add another yeahthat.gif to Val's comment.

 

I'm here, not posting much since there won't be any "trying" for me this cycle, but reading along.  I've been having a hard time since DH left.  I feel depressed and very lonely. gloomy.gif

Can you add my fertility friend link to my chart on the list at the beginning?  It does seem that I had a "rise" in temp today.  Not sure how long this cycle is going to last with having EWCM last week on CD21 and all.  Maybe another 2 weeks?  Any chart stalkers out there?

Lilac: I sneaked a peek at your chart, if your numbers keep going up then that would look good. They do seem to be rising. "Typically" your post O temps will be higher than your pre-o's so yours should continue to climb. Everyone's different though so it's hard to say, and lots of things can throw your temps off. Do you usually have long cycles?

Hi guys, Rosie, thanks for the new thread!

 

Caly, huggy huggy! hug2.gifI am sorry you are sad.  I think it will pass.

 

Everyone else...love you.  Feeling really poopy coming up to O time.  DP being a butthead and impending SA on the 13th.  Just crabby.

Hi friends.. Sorry I've been MIA.. and THANK YOU ROSIE - for starting the new thread!  Boots, you did a wonderful job making it look perfect!! 

 

Caly.. I'm sorry your husband is gone.  It makes me really sad.  You can come hang out with me and my DH (although, he's not getting anyone pregnant.. lol)... I know you must feel lonely hug2.gif

 

Tank.. so glad to see you!  Hope you are feeling well..

 

What's up Northstar - can we celebrate?  I surly hope so!

 

Ram - glad that you're up and running again.. I have a friend that has three all from one tube.. so go catch that eggie!!

 

Lilac - if there is EWBJ.. then get to BDing.. that's my advice.

 

Cath.. my DH was totally freaked doing the SA.. so just keep stroking his ego.  But also remind him he has to give it all he's got!!  I don't know if they gave you any advice but here's mine.  HAVE HIM PRACTICE FIRST.  My DH was sort of weirded out by the whole process and he could barely get any to go.  Now, he's been practicing so he could give a good sample for the actual time for fertilization and the results were much better.  Also, don't do anything two days before so that there is a little build up but not too much.  Too much and the swimmers are too crowded, too little and his results will be skewed.  So you're getting ready to O.. good time for practice.  :)

 

I love all of you.. sorry I was MIA. I'm just sitting here waiting, hoping to start the process again on Friday.. but I haven't had positive ovulation.. I dunno.. I'm just ready to go.  Just implant a baby now!  LOL!!

Hello everyone,

 

I've been reading these threads for a few weeks now, and I would very much like to join the fun.  :)  My DH and I have been TTC since February.  Honestly I thought we'd get it on the first try---why, I have no idea.  Needless to say, these past few months have been very educational and I'm somewhat obsessed with TTC now.  I've been charting for a few months and everything looks great---which is why I find myself getting frustrated.  DH is supportive but I don't want to share my TTC with others just yet. 

 

Does anyone have suggestions for helping me produce more EWCM?  We use Pre-Seed, but I'm not sure about what else actually works. 

 

You all seem like the nicest, most educated group of ladies I've found (and believe me---I've been researching like crazy!!). 


Me (32) and DH (30) welcomed our precious baby boy 1/2013... life is good.

Hi pitchounette! Welcome! I will add to the first page as soon as I figure out what is going on with this thread. They say grapefruit juice and/or cough syrup works. Grapefruit juice I dunno why (PH levels?), and cough syrup because it thins all kinds of mucous in the body (I *think*?). Sorry I don't have more details on hand! Cristini, a graduate, swore by her grapefruit juice and PreSeed. 

 

All - I broke the thread! The very beautiful and nifty thread that boots wrote awesome instructions for! I fiddled with the code a little bit (NOT part of the instructions) and really broke it. Each time I click the edit button my browser crashes. It's kind of nuts. I could start a new page (or someone else, since I obviously have a black thumb when it comes to threads!), or we could wait to see whether an admin can fix it...

 

Caly - :hugs Can you forecast how the timing might be when he returns for break? Did you save any of the links you found when searching for info about freezing sperm? I'm just curious. DH just told me he's going out of town the day of my expected O this cycle. I said "I hope I O on time" and he suggested we save a little batter for the baster-method.

 

Northstar come back! I hope your absence is a happy signal!

 

Cathe - When is O-time?

 

Lilac- I'll add your chart as soon as I figure out the thread.

 

Hi Boots, Taxi, Birdie! I gotta get back to homework.

Okay, Rosie, hope you get it figured out.  Been kind of quiesy the last two mornings.  I don't think I am pregnant but it just seems weird.

Hi ladies!

 

Taxi - Glad to see you again!  I was wondering where you disappeared to.  I hope you O soon so you can get started with you next cycle and get your little one implanted!

 

Caly - hug2.gif  Lots of hugs for you!  When will DH be back for a visit?

 

Cath - hug2.gif  Hugs for you too!  I hope DH will be good with the SA and everything will check out okay.  I totally understand men being resistant to that - I know my DH was.  In fact, I never got DH to do one, despite having an order on file for over three months before we got pregnant.  Why are men so stubborn?? 

 

Pitchounette - Welcome!  I hope your stay here is short and successful.  As for EWBJ - one of the best things you can do is make sure you are drinking enough water.  I aimed for 100 ounces per day in the last few months of TTC, and it seemed to help the fluid levels.  Good luck!

 

Rosie - The thread still looks great!  I wouldn't have known it was broken if you hadn't told us.  Are you sure that you broke it, though?  Since a recent update, I've been having issues with other MDC stuff - i.e. editing signatures, replying to PM, changing profile pics.  Maybe editing posts is included??  Just a thought.  Good luck at getting it fixed!

Thanks for the suggestions, Rosie and Val!  I will definitely try the grapefruit juice, and of course keep drinking lots of water.  I've even considered giving up coffee and/or Diet Coke... I only drink 1 cup of coffee in the morning, and about a half glass of DC in the afternoon.  My doctor says that amount of caffeine shouldn't be a problem, but who knows?  I've also been trying to eat more sweet potatoes (peel, slice, roast in oven with a bit of olive oil and sea salt---YUM) for fertility. 

 

I've been charting for about 3 months and so far I think it helps me see the whole picture. (I'll try posting my chart but so far it doesn't look quite right when I click to link it.)  I'm also doing OPKs and everything seems to coincide with my BBT.  So I guess we'll just keep trying.smile.gif

Thanks to everyone for the hugs and sympathy.  DH will be back for a visit on June 10.  I am literally counting the days (37).   I'll be flying to California to meet him, then we'll drive back to Ohio.  His parents are giving us a car.  It's fallout from their recent divorce, but hey - a free car is a free car, and as DH said, it's his reward for putting up with their bad behavior.  I should O at least once, possibly twice, before he heads back to Alaska in late July.

 

Welcome Pitchounette!

 

Birdie and Val, it's good to see your tickers moving along...smile.gif  Fingers crossed for everyone else!  fingersx.gif

pitchounette.  I swear musinex helped me get pregnant both times.  It increases the EWCM.  I didn't take it as an aid though I really had a bad cold both times!  Weird huh?

Oh Caly.. that is great news with a new car (insert bob barker's voice)!

 

So I'm having a bad allergy attack which brings me to Tank's comment (by the way.. good to see you Tankerino).. So many people have had colds when they conceived or recently after the fact.  From what I know about the immune system (from my Crohn's disease) maybe this is a good thing.  First of all, with a cold you have to slow down a bit (that's good) and your immune system is concentrating on the symptoms of the cold instead of the foreign thing in your uterus.  SO in the cases of using mucinex, I think it's almost two fold.. you're thinning out your mucus and you're giving your system a rest while it concentrates on getting you well.  I cannot tell you how many people have actually told me they thought it was the cold that was keeping AF at bay.. only to find out they were pregnant.  GOOD LUCK... to all.. 

 

I have an appointment tomorrow to check on the ovulation.  If I ovulated I get to start the cycle of suppression.. if I haven't I'm not sure what happens.. I just hope we can start.  I think my baby is ready to visit.  love.gif

 

XOXOXOXOXO to all of you.. taxi

I had a friend tell me that getting pregnant was the best thing for her health - she was really sick with hepatitis, then got pregnant and the hepatitis was "cured" because the immune system overdrive from pregnancy.  Right now I am dealing with allergies and I hate it.  I don't want to take too much anti-histamines because it dries up CM but the sneezing and runny nose is for the birds.

Okay, Firefox let me edit the thread. Lilac - your chart is up there. Pitchounette - Do you want to add a chart link or your age?

 

I'm buried in work. Will come back in full force when I get the stat project turned in!!!

BOO!!!!!

 

Hi Ladies!!!! Long time no type!

 

Sorry for my lack of appearances, but things have gone from bad to worse at my job. We had lost two people the middle of last year, and then was able to hire one replacement, who said he could start the beginning of March, which would leave him with enough time to sell his home and move, but then a week before March, he says "Oh now it will be April"...so he started recently...and then another person left! So we're back to square one. Buried under piles and piles and piles of work. AND training this new guy, while the girl who is leaving (a girl who had a LOT of responsibilities) hands off all her work too. **On a side note, she's leaving because her husband basically kidnapped their daughter and went out to Colorado to "try out a job" and then called her up and said 'We're not coming back'. So she had to pack up their house and drive it across the country twice, just to be with her daughter. Her husband is a total scumbag and she's tried to divorce him multiple times, but he uses the little girl as bait...so so soooo sad. She's not going out there with a job or anything!**

 

So anyone have a Cliffs Notes version of what I've missed??

 

I scanned over the posts for May, and I see there are some newbies! Welcome!!!!!! And yes, I did use PreSeed and GFJ and got preggo that month! I'm a believer!!!! And a pusher...LOL...But temping and OPKs make it a complete package. I felt like if I did everything right enough times, it would work. Turns out I finally got it "right" on month #4, since I caught my O day, which is earlier than average. I'm 12 weeks pregnant today! I got to actually HEAR the heartbeat last Friday at my 4-week check-up! That was awesome!!!!! Beating at 156 bpm...my friend who is pregnant with twin boys and due 3 weeks before me is thinking this baby is a boy. I still have about 8 more weeks until I can find out though...I'm scheduled for my NT scan next Friday and I'm going to ask the tech to make a gender guess :)

 

I need to go do some chart stalking!!!! I haven't been on FF much (if at all) since my free trial ran out...bummer...but now that I have some charts to look at, it will make me happy!!

 

Love and BJ to you all!!!!!!

My DH is heading out this weekend for a guys camping trip.  One of the guys going on the trip has a new baby with his wife and I was appalled when I found out he's going on this trip---and leaving his wife and new baby alone on Mother's Day.  Seriously?!  My DH gently reminded me that not everyone is as "family-focused" as I am... which I chose to take as a compliment.  winky.gif

 

 

Hi Rosie!  Yes, please add my age (I'm 30!) and my chart link is here : http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/344ab7

 

 


Me (32) and DH (30) welcomed our precious baby boy 1/2013... life is good.

Well my temp is still on the rise.  FF still hasn't given me an "ovulation detected" on it.  Does that turn off when the free trial ends?  Just today in the "learning portion" that pops up to teach me how to use FF it talked about putting the red vertical line to show "ovulation detected" and the read horizontal line to help me visualize the before O temps and the after O temps.  I have to go back 10 years to find my planners from back then when I at least kept track of when my periods came (my mom was a calendar keeper for AF and such things and had me keeping a calendar once I got my period as a kid).  I think it was pretty normal for me to go 35 to 40 days on a cycle which will make for an interesting TTC time for my husband and me.  I am CD 30 and it doesn't feel like my period is coming yet so I don't figure it will be here until next week, unless I got pregnant.

Went out and bought some home pregnancy tests.  DH and I made an event of it by going together.  I could tell he was nervous and I was pretty apprehensive as well but I had seen the prices for the "fancy" HPT at the grocery store and well, I am not paying 10 to 15 dollars when I can buy one for a dollar that has the same sensitivity for HCG in urine.  If my period hasn't come by Sunday morning, I will take one just for fun.  We will just have to wait and see.  So far quesy, bloated, and breast feeling "fuller" and not fitting as well into my fitted dresses are all my "symptoms".

Welcome Pitchounette!  wave.gif It looks like your around the same cycle time as me so I can have someone to obsess with.

 

Lilac: I'm thinking that the red lines on FF disappeared after my trial ended, but I'm not sure. I know my calender lost my ovulation prediction days after the trial ran out. When are you planning on testing? Its been a while for a BFP here and I think we're in need of one. 

 

AFM: Still waiting for the OPK to give me that positive smiley face should be sometime soon fingersx.gif

Weird, FF is saying "service unavailable" right now.  Woke up without an alarm (love the weekend!)  Temp is still up. 

 

I am planning to test tomorrow morning.  I will see if am going to be a mother on "Mother's Day".

Hi ladies!

 

Cristini - Thanks for stopping by! Sorry your DH's ex and and work are causing stress. Where's Taxi, we need a gender prediction! 

 

Boots - I just did a bit of stalking, and it looks like AF is late? Am I forgetting something you posted earlier?

 

lilac - Good luck!

 

pitchounette - Looks like we're close to being cycle buddies. 

 

Ram - I hope you have a nice GSB visit. ;)

 

AFM - I'm writing a term paper and procrastinating by chart stalking. Temping this cycle is interesting. I'm obviously going to need to get the hang of it, because my temps look kind of wild.
