LadyCatherine - Ah yes, I can see how temping might not work in that situation! You usually have 12-24hrs post ovulation to catch the egg from what I understand, so you never know! 

 

Lisoula - Oh cool! Yep, it's a pretty great place to live :)

 

Fingers crossed for a few more BFP's before the month is out! Anyone out there who will be testing before February hits us?

 

Also, I'm going to be having a bit of a clean out of the thread starter list so if there is anyone who hasn't posted for awhile but still wants to stay on the list (which is totally fine, btw) please let me know by posting in here or sending me a message :)

Rockabilly Mama - I'm so sorry :( I wish there was something more I could say, but it still hirts. Hopefully you get to have a couple of restful days to recharge. Do you chart/temp, by the way? I'm just trying to remember if you mentioned anything in your initial post. Hope you're doing ok, we're all here for you!

BFN this morning. I'm 7-9 DPO.. I never got a + test with either of my boys before 12 DPO so I am still holding out hope! haha.. My luteal phase is typically 10-11 days long, so if I'm not PG I should get AF within the next few days.

 

Fingers crossed for everyone!!

ugh.. i am crampy. :( :( I do remember being crampy during early pregnancy with my boys, but it was after I had already had a BFP... looks like AF is around the corner. Will let you all know if/when she arrives.

Wow, can't believe the month is almost through. 

 

This morning I am feeling doubtful, the symptoms I was having are not as bad as before, so maybe hormones were just at a peak or something, AF is supposed to come Feb 2nd, so I'll most likely know before February.

Thanks for the new thread!

 

Doularebekah Charting Cm is always super crazy for me. Sometimes I have 6 days of ewcm and other months, none. (I used real eggwhites to conceive #2; but had so much mucus with #3 I thought I was anovulatory). I did the glass of water test this week, too. And it looked good. Although I know it can take me a few days after I O for it to turn to infertile CM, so I havent really used that to determine if I O'd or not. Cervical position works better for me. I wish I had been temping, but I've been too sick to move. Hope you figure out whats happening soon.

 

Lisousa, LadyCatherine, cassandraz fingers crossed for all of you. 7+dpo is the time of the cycle I HATE the most. I'm so crazy on the inside and each month I think I'll be relaxed and nonchalant this time, but it never happens!

 

So we are sick and dtd anyways, because even though I am ambivalent now, I know I wont be 2 weeks from now. 

 

Feeling like I need to stand on my head afterwards to give those sperm an edge, but reality right now is a quickie in the shower while we are both coughing and then run to take care of sick kids. Not really feeling the mojo! But having fun and not missing opportunities, so I'll take it!

So my tests finally came- no O yet. If by some freak chance that I'm Oing right after AF, we have that covered. I think it's pretty hilarious that I'm peeing into disposable shot glasses for my OPK's! We had a holiday party back in December, and friends brought & left them- fyi.

I've gone a bit neurotic. I used to be really big into rituals and charms, so I made a fertility/baby juju bag with various fertility herbs and a moonstone, as well as making a tea out of the herbs and pouring a bit into our baths every night. Also I'm doing very hip-opening yoga every day. Can't hurt, right?

More BD-ing for us! We're both sick now- but it's really not stopping us, so yay!

I hope this will be a good week for all of us, thinking fertile sticky thoughts!

Hi DoulaRebekah, I stalked your chart. Yeah, that's an early O, eh? Interesting... The whole conversation about summer is making me pretty jealous! It's still a pretty puny winter here but I feel rather trapped inside with a toddler. It seems so much harder to enjoy winter (totally not what I expected) with a little one. Once we get some good sledding in, I'm sure it'll improve! Please move me to waiting to O. We've decided to go ahead and try this cycle right after the early miscarriage. Who knows what the right thing to do is? I sure don't, but I'm not sure anyone does.

 

KatCooke, very interesting about your juju bag. It's so cool hearing about what other ladies do. Funny about the shot glasses, too, sounds like a great idea! I'm sorry if I missed your intro but do you have kids already?

 

Hello, Samy23. Glad for you your wait is ending soon.

 

AngieRae, that's so funny about being ambivalent now. I totally feel you on that! I feel like that too sometimes, like it's a chore when you've gotta do it to get the timing right and you've gotta think about that 2ww! Or, and this is embarrassing to admit, but I think, "I don't want to miss today, because then on FF when it scores the BD timing, I won't have a check mark in today's box." That's how I know I'm trying a little too hard! Sheepish.gif

 

Good luck Lisoula, Cassandraz, and LadyCatherine!

 

AFM, I feel like I might O early on account of the m/c (since it was so early) my OPK was pretty dark (though neg) this AM. Either that or maybe it'll be late... Hmmm... guess I never appreciated how regular my cycle was! And still some bleeding, 8 days later, geez.

Spotting yesterday and today which  means I should stop altogether in the next day or two...we are planning on bd'ing every other day from the time it stops until Thursday and from Thursday to confirmed O we are bd'ing every.single.day.  I hope that does the job!

I have a question about the charting. I just started charting yesterday, and my temp was 96.4. This morning, my temp was 95.8. Is this normal? I feel like that is a huge fluctuation.... Today is CD7 for me. Thanks in advance!

Yes I am. 6.30 every morning. I sleep with my mouth open, so I don't know if that would affect anything. Maybe I should buy a new thermometer....

LisaAdkins20...   You may want to temp vaginally. Because you sleep with your mouth open, your temps will read falsely low (which explains your 95 temp).


43 w/Emphysema - TTC from 2005 - 2013. 2 miscarriages in 2008. Good things do not come to those who wait.

Angie - Yeah, I definitely find CM charting to be a bit tricky also. I guess I'm just always second guessing as to if I've interpreted it correctly or not, you know? How do you find checking your cervical position? To be honest I'm never totally sure that I'm doing that right, either! I definitely never know if it's open or not, haha. TCOYF has now given me an ovulation date as well, but it's at CD10 or 11 (I get it on 11 if I put in a 'fake' temp for tomorrow, haha) so if that's the case we've at least BD'd once within my fertile period. I'll just keep waiting to see!

 

jpack - Yeah, definitely weirdly early! Like I mentioned above, TCOYF thinks it's a little later but either way still really early for me. Haha, yeah Summer is pretty great at the moment. Although it took it's time starting, it seems like we're right in the middle of it now! I can imagine being trapped inside with a little one can be tough! A friend of mine lives in Edmonton and has 3 kids under 7, I don't know how she does it when the snow's piled high outside!

 

KatCooke - The shot glasses cracked me up! But really, they're pretty perfect! Hoping that hip-opening yoga and juju bag work their magic for you goodvibes.gif

 

Samy23 - Welcome to the group! Exciting that you're getting ready to TTC, I look forward to following your journey!

 

LisaAdkins - I second Stevi's advice about temping vaginally. I started out doing it orally and my temps were pretty low but when I started charting vaginally they were high and a bit more regular. It's hard to know how normal a temp jump that is until you have a few cycles charted, it might just be what's normal for you....do you know when you normally O?

 

AFM - Both FF and TCOYF think I O'd between CD9-11, and I'm hoping it's at least CD10 so we have a chance this month. Both my husband and I have been busy and tired, we've had visitors, etc so BD'ing hasn't happened as much especially as I wasn't expecting to O for another week or so! irked.gif Oh well, not much I can do at this point - aside from definitely buying some OPK's for next cycle!

LisaAdkins- I third the vaginal temping, I tend to be a mouth breather too when I sleep.  I actually have to focus on breathing through my nose when I am falling asleep in order to breath that way all night lol.

 

KatCooke- Is it bad that your post inspired me to youtube some hip opening yoga exercises?  Lol.

 

doulahrebekah- That stinks about O'ing early! Fingers are crossed that something happens and you actually O at your normal time!

 

AFM- I am just getting ansy to get this Bd'ing on the road lol.  If I O on my normal cd, like with previous cycles that would be next Tuesday.  I have Bible study every Tuesday night, would it be ridiculous of me to not go to Bible study to make time to Bd? I really want a BFP lol.

Doularebekah: I agree, my CM is all over the place. CD10 I had CM that literally looked like egg white (clear w/ a little bit of white) and now I'm on CD19, with cramping yesterday and today.

 

John16n33: yes, you can BD Tuesday night instead of study smile.gif Or BD before and after blush.gif

 

AFM...

Another doubtful day confused.gif All the "symptoms" I've had are not as intense, minus the backache and headache. The only thing similar to my first pregnancy is the watery CM, but as a whole my CM is a lot less. Even if I was, I wouldn't believe it till I was showing (we're not doing u/s or seeing an OB or CNM till at least the 2nd trimester), my mind is hard to convince.

On a better note...

If AF shows up next week I'll definitely know my cycle more than I ever have in my entire life twins.gif

Hmm Bd before might be a problem since Dd will be here and very awake lol.  But after depends on if Dh is still awake.  He has Pt at 5:00 a.m. so he goes to bed kind of early.

AAM...   Well, I guess my body can still throw me curve balls. My AF ended on cd5 as usual with some brownish blood only upon wiping. But, While checking for that I found bright red blood on the tp. It was only a drop or two, I thought it came from rubbing too hard on my cervix with the tp. Well, there was a little more the next day, along with more brown blood. Now on cd8, I still have some brown showing up on the tp, and my cm is thick and creamy. I am usually getting EWCM by now. My temps have not gone down either, but I think that could be from lack of sleeping soundly.


43 w/Emphysema - TTC from 2005 - 2013. 2 miscarriages in 2008. Good things do not come to those who wait.

Stevi, I'm sorry it's so confusing! Do you have any thoughts on what it might be? I wonder if you'll end up ovulating a little later this cycle. I'm hoping this is a positive little readjustment for you!

John16n33: Not bad at all- I just got my yoga certification at the end of December, and one of my last classes was yoga for fertility. Doing a LOT of pigeon and legs up the wall, as well as keeping as balanced a diet as possible, and breathwork. 

 

AFM: I'm curious if anyone here is wearing/using a moonstone for fertility as well- I read a thread on another site and people were having really good results with it, so I've been wearing my moonstone ring again! Can't have too much good juju!

Thanks for the welcome back, I should be more active in this thread again this year as I made the decision to stop TTC using a donor and wait until I'm in a long-term relationship. And I have just got back in touch with a friend from the past, so who knows, maybe a relationship will happen this time.... I'm really hopeful and can't wait to have another child! It's so hard waiting, as everyone here knows. 

 

In the meantime, I've got much healthier by losing the weight I needed to, have been taking prenatals, and I chart CM, which today is fertile EWCM and not a thing I can do about it!

 

Stevi hope your on track with your donors still :)
