So I have a weird question for you ladies ... and after this many kids I *should* know the answers to all these dumb questions, but it's like "use it or loose it" knowledge LMAO.
1- Can any of you FEEL your cervix opening/closing? I know it's possible to feel O pain in your ovaries, but several months now I swear it feels like my cervix is opening and then a few (2-3) days later I can feel it close. During this time I do feel O as well. The only thing is, we weren't "trying" before now I was definitely wasn't paying attention to when we DTD or what was going on and my cycle has been all over the place. I've also had a TON of stress because we sold, packed, moved ourselves, bought, unpacked and painted from one state to the next with 5 kids in tow. Anyway, it's strange to think I am really feeling it open and close, but it seems to line up with my typical LP and when I should be O'ing .. if that makes sense at all. Can anyone else feel this happening too?
2-Anyone else use coconut oil as lube?? It helps fight off bacteria (prevent yeast etc) and isn't bad for your body but I can't find any good info on harm or help with sperm.
Yes! I feel mine and I can feel it open when AF is about to start. And I am thinking you mean feel it as in having a sensation not as in literally touching it when it is open. Right? I can't describe the feeling but if I am paying attention I can feel it for sure.
please move m e to Two Week Wait, If anyone remembers me from last year (sugarplum I think I remember you- CONGRATS!) I'mmmm baaack- Okay so last September we had a MC and then after that happened my husband threw me another wrench and said he wasn't sure he wanted anymore kiddos...It was a sad time for me. Anyway we are back on the same page and are currently trying to conceive again. (Obviously). So I am actually 10dpo this morning and tested with FMU (because I am a POAS fiend!) I don't particularly feel preggers ( that's a bit of a lie- I have had signs but I just think I am symptom spotting like I always do) however I do check my CP (something that I have done regularly in my cycle so I am used to how it "normally" does during my cycle) and that is making me think I for sure am! Previous cycles my CP has just been all over the place- HSC LFC...but this cycle it's been M to H and VERY SOFT!!! and C....with what looks to me like ewcm but I am a couple days out from AF....so we will see. I tested yesterday and today but both were negative. However, according to Pregnology ( cool site...check it out) I wouldn't be able to see it on a HPT for at least a few more days. So fingers crossed and lots of ! Good Luck also to anyone else with fingers still crossed this month :)
Grateful Stella! I remember you!
