Posted in the wrong thread earlier! I'm new to these subforums and TTC in particular, so I know I'm joining late here. I'll figure it out eventually. :)


Anyway, I just had an early pregnancy loss last week. We are going to TTC going forward, and not sure what to expect since our other two children (and my recent pregnancy) were surprise blessings, when we weren't paying attention or just threw caution to the wind.


I'm Elizabeth, 35 yo... I don't have a chart, just use cycle beads and I know my fertility signs pretty well. I have a 26 day cycle... anyone else with a shorter cycle? When we weren't TTC my short cycle annoyed me, but in light of TTC it actually seems like a positive, more fertile days per year if I understand correctly.

Hey ladies, I know technically this thread has ended but I need some advice.

Based on CM I ovulated around Cd40 (if I even ovulated) and that makes today the day I should test. I have been looking forward to this day for a while. However, based on temps I am not pregnant. The only signs I have had are vivid dreams and weird fluttering in my stomach but I have had vivid dreams before and the flutters could just be nerves or AF...what do you all think? Should I temp and waste at test and disappoint myself or do I wait until the illusive AF decides to show up (whenever that mabe)...sigh. Is it even worth thinking I am pregnant based on those temps?

You can see my chart up by name. Sorry it is messed up lately I didnt sleep a lot this week and I pulled two all nighters.

BetsyPage...   My cycles were 26 days for many, many years, including when I had my pregnancies in 2008. It's the luteal phase that matters most, and at my best, mine was 11 days. :)

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

FreedEm11: When I'm in 2WW everything is a symptom... I wouldn't pin your hopes on dreams and flutters. From what I understand temps are important, have not looked at your chart but you should be able to see a clear shift after O and sustained higher temps if PG. How many more days till AF is supposed to show up? Can you wait a couple more days and see what your temps are? I know every day seems like an eternity when you're in 2WW...

Also, you can get the internet cheapies on Amazon, 50 tests for $12 or so, that way you don't have to worry about "wasting" tests.

Hope this helps. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.


Ok, just took a quick peek at your chart: imo you're very low temp and I can't see a shift so you may not have O'd. I can't remember if you've mentioned this anywhere else but have you been tested for low thyroid? My temps generally are 97s before O and 98+ consistently after O.

Now that I am a mom I no longer have time for knit.gif,teapot2.GIF,read.gif
