CD21....think i'm still waiting to O....not sure.....

Good morning everyone! I'm thoroughly confused....i usually have 30-34 day cycles and as far as i can tell, i haven't even ovulated yet. It's my first month charting, so now i'm questioning whether i'm just having a screwy cycle or if i haven't been ovulating all along (and just haven't known it b/c i hadn't been charting). i figure there are three explanations for my lack of O at this point in the cycle: 1) i will ovulate late and either have a longer than 34 day cycle with a normal LP or 2) i will ovulate at my normal time and now realize by charting that i have a short LP or 3) i won't ovulate at all this cycle which makes me wonder if I have been ovulating at all in past cycles. In any case, I don't like any of the explanations....they all signal a possible problem i think.

i've managed to work myself up so much about my possible 'subfertility' that we GIO last night and did not use any precautions even though we weren't planning on ttc until september. I AM SO NEUROTIC!!! my dh thinks i'm nuts.....i tend to agree with him.

question for all of you...how common is it to have very regular cycles and regularly not ovulate? i always assumed i was ovulating since i was having regular cycles. :

i will try to post my chart....off to FF to figure out how.

Jodi--Thanks for keeping the thread this week! I wish I had some answers or ideas about your chart. Hopefully you can get your homepage figured out. It took me forever! I think the fact that your cycles have been regular is a great sign though!

Welcome Christina! I hope the Clomid does the trick for you this month. :-D

Welllll, I need some help, gals. FF gave me a dotted coverline today, and it doesn't feel right at all. My CP doesn't match up at all, and neither does my CF really. Since I have this progesterone cream to use from O onward, I don't know what to do. Start using it in case...or wait because it could screw up my actual O if it hasn't happened yet...What to do...My temp. jump yesterday was pretty big, but I went to bed late, and temped an hour later than usual. Still after about four hours of sleep though. Should I discard it? Ambiguity, my least favorite thing.

Here's hoping for lots and lots of BFP's this week!

Jodi...I think it would be very unusual to have regular periods but no o...however, your lp's may be shorter than the "typical" 14 days without being deficient. I think ob's only worry when lp's are consistently under 10-11 days. I've been taking vitex to balance my cycle. So far it seems to be working, but I'm waiting to see how this cycle pans out.

My temp is not rising much (97.2, 97.6, 97.6) but cp and cm indicate o is behind me. And if those were not ovulation pains for three hours on cd14 then what the heck was it? Never got ewcm though in spite of the 3 carrots a day since cd8 or so, that's disapointing.

Does a slow temp rise indicate a problem?

Happy sunday all!

I was thinking that I don't have much to add to this thread except that I'm getting the hang of charting and learning the ins and outs of my cycles and what not and then I remembered that I do have something to add...
For those of you who might be looking for a way to spice up the GIO'ing (or your dh's interest in GIO'ing), try a Brazilian Bikini wax.
I'm speaking from experience here.

Welcome Christina!

Jodi - I think it's relatively rare for anovulatory cycles to be so regular. You could still O this cycle, or could be having a delayed cycle. Any stress lately? I always thought that was just the most ridiculous notion until I had delayed O in February (we were trying to buy a house) and again in April, when we moved.

Sarah - I'd be tempted to wait & see what temp you get tomorrow, and then decide whether to discard. I know, I know, it means you have to wait, but... *shrug* I used the 'temp corrector' thing on FF yesterday because I accidentally took my temp two hours early (I know, how does one do that by accident, right? Well, trust me, I did), and I sort of wish I'd just discarded the temp, because it doesn't 'fit' my chart, especially today. But then I'd have so many discards. Also, try adjusting your preferences to FAM vs. Advanced, and see what you get? *shrug*

Marie - I think some people just have a slow temp rise, IIRC. I don't think it's common per se, but it's not rare, either, or anything to worry about.

I was thinking I O'd yesterday evening but my temp didn't spike this morning, so I'm not sure. EWCM is definitely starting to go away - well, that was interesting. I don't always get any O pain, but I'm sitting here talking about O'ing and my left side gives a twinge. :/ Psychosomatic? Or the real thing? Who knows.

Let's see some BFPs this week!

talk about obsessing!!! I'm not even quite sure I o'd but I'm wondering if I'm having early symptoms! well, it's my sister's fault. She claims she knew within two days on each of her five pregnancies (she had one early m/c, and two ectopic, but I have two beautiful nephews!)....

so here's the "symptom"...I have some soreness/heat in my lower abdomen, especially the left side. Two days ago I had some sharp pain and cramping especially on the left, which I took for ovulation (followed by a .4 temp rise yesterday...). This is similar but less intense and less focalised, more radiating. Does that ring a bell for anyone?
I'm wondering if it's just due to energy moving after an acupuncture treatment on thursday....
I'll be grateful for any responses, thanks!!!

I think I must be crazy but I swear I feel like I am pregnant there can be no way, that I could have these symptoms this early.

I have been so tired lately. Yesterday I had a few cramps that lasted a couple of minutes....can you feel implantation?

Here is hoping for a TON of BFP's this week!

's to ladies that need them.

Well I'm justy hanging out...

I am creating a local parenting site for my province... it's a resource/play group/message board type. It's my second shot at this (a parenting message board) but maybe this one will stay a little smaller and I won't get so overwhelmed by the repsonsibility and WORK involved in maintaining a popular message board. Heck, I'll do anything to not have to work outside the home. I told DH he needs to go back to school and get a better job because all I want to do is stay home and have babies. LOL

Lots and lots of BFPs this week ladies!!!

Jodi, if you hit "post reply" rather than using the "quick reply" box at the bottom of the page, then above the box that you type in will be several symbols - one is a globe with what looks like (to me!) an infinity symbol at the bottom. Click on that, and it'll show you the process for putting in a link in the body of your message.

Welcome Pumpkin and Forevermama!

I was going to go to Pride today but it's raining and we woke up late. :/ Bother.

Welcome Amber

Since there seem to be some new faces around here today (or maybe just new to me) - why don't we re-introduce ourselves? i'll go first....

I'm Jodi, wife to Steven - we've been married 5 years. We have one ds - Joseph, he turned two in March. We live in sunny Florida. I work 3 days a week in an ob/gyn clinic - although i wish it were more like 1 day a week! We plan to ttc probably around September (although if you read my earlier posts it may be sooner... ).

Love hanging out here with all of you. Let's hope we all graduate soon!

OK Ladies,
I'm gonna try to keep up with this thread this week! It moves so fast that I haven't popped in for a while.

Anyway, I'm nursing my 26 month old DS and have been having super long cycles, but LPs on the short and spotty side. I'm taking a whole cocktail of herbs to try to help - vitex, EPO, red clover, nettles.

Both my boys are April babies, so I'm hoping that's a good omen for this cycle! Please keep your : for me! I so so want this to be the month!

Thanks you guys

Ok, about me and mine...I'm Amber (26) wife to Michael (30), together for 12 yrs, married for 4. Crunchier than I like to admit mama to The two boys in my siggy We tried 10 months each for both of the boys, and am prepared for it to be the same this time around, although anything sooner would be fabulous I'm exclusively nursing Louie, day and night, so I imagine it will play havok on my cycles. I haven't started really keeping track of them yet, but will as soon as AF rears her ugly head. My last TTC journey, I was also exclusively BF, and it was filled with long cycles, delayed O, and short LP. When I eventually did get preggo, it was supported with progestrone the 1st trimester, as mine was too low. Thinking maybe this time, I will take something to help with that before hand. We shall see!

Anyway~ I'm looking forward to hanging with you guys to everyone!

Hey all!

Joining the one thread for the first time, though I've been reading it. Very exciting!

About me: This is our second month ttc. I'm at cd20 and had an IUI on cd14, so I'm waiting to know. Last month, AF was late, so I'm not jumping to any conclusions unless I make it to cd35 without a visit from her (haha, famous last words...). The iui went well, and the ultrasound I had on cd12 showed three follicles this time. Altho one was too small to ovulate, I at least had two ready to go (I'm taking femara, which is like clomid).

I do have a question though. How many of you keep up regular exercise in the two weeks after either insemination or goi (what does that mean, anyway? I mean, I've deduced the meaning-duh!-but what do the letters stand for?) I've been keeping up my bike rides (very arobic; I climb a small mountain), and I'm assuming that's fine (doc says to exercise like normal). But sometimes when my heart is racing, I'm thinking, if I'm pg, is this a good idea?

Good luck to everyone who need it this week, and warm wishes to those who need a little tlc.

Jo~ I was told everything within reason If you've always exercised, keep it up, and then modify as needed. If you've never exercised, then probably not the best time to start hard core routines or new strenuous things. HTH!

Welcome, Jo!

Reintroducing myself... Dh (26) and I (23) have one dd (nearly 4). This is our first cycle ttc because I insisted that we wait until after a trip to WDW in May, and then we were in separate states when I O'd last cycle. Whoops. I'm 'just' a SAHM, though I recently agree to be one of two co-leaders of my local Mothers & More chapter, for either one year or until I have a baby, whichever come first!

Red clover help balance hormones and reduce acidity of the vagina. I thas to be taken in small does though. Too much has been known to cause infertility.

Nettles are nutritive and provide iron and vitamin k.

I add a bit of these to my red rasp. leaf and spearmint tea.

Sending out lots of for all who need it!

I'm Amanda, mom to three kids (see my sig), nursing two of them. I also have two angels. We're waiting to be ready to ttc and will probably start on/near my 30th birthday on Dec. 30th. The way things are going with my nurslings, I may be tandem nursing through yet another pregnancy! I'm hoping getting pg again will be as easy as it was in the past, but I won't count on it, as my cycles have been really strange. I'm paying closer attention to my cycle now, in preparation, and may consider charting if I can ever get more than 2-3 hours of sleep per night!

Praying for lots of BFP's this month!!!
Welcome to all the newbies!

Mama to A (12), Z (11), H (9), C (5), A (3) and 4 angels.

Have any of you read "Welcoming the Soul of a Child" (Creating Rituals and Ceremonies to Honor the Birth of Our Sons and Daughters) by Jill E. Hopkins, MA (foreword by Jack Kornfield)?

I just started reading it and am looking forward to doing some of the preconception/conception meditations that I've read about. If I recall correctly, some of you were talking about meditation a while back and I thought I'd suggest this book.

Hey there everyone, just checking in. All the furniture is moved out and the house is empty -- except for the kitchen and garage. It's going to be spartan living here for a while. The new carpet will be wonderful.

I'm still feeling sick to my stomach. It's like living on the edge of nausea. Every once in a while the icky feeling starts to feel like it's going to catapult into full nausea and then it pulls back. I'm a bit burpy as well. I was going to test again tomorrow morning but I think I'm going to give myself the day off. I'll test on Tuesday. That's when AF is due.

Here's my re-intro:

I'm Jess, 27, an electrical engineer for a defense contractor working on radios for Army helicopters. When we have our kids I'll be a WAHM, most likely doing contract work for engineering companies. I also have some ideas for other ways to make some money, but I'm going to wait to see how those go. I'm married to my high school sweetheart, Matt -- 26, who's also an engineer. We started dating in '93 and got married four years ago this Thursday (7/1). We live in our suburban house with the finest golden retriever you ever did see.

We are TTC for June only because Matt's going to have some tests on his stomach that'll include radioactive barium, CAT scans, and ultrasounds. We don't want to have any "compromised" swimmers. If we're not successful this cycle we'll be waiting three months -- October.

Today I'm 11dpo and have been feeling sick since 8dpo. Yuck.

We're heading out to Home Despot. Hope everyone has a superb day!

Jess

PS -- we rented 50 First Dates last night and I LOVED it! I bawled my eyes out like a little baby, but it was wonderful. I kept trying to hide my tears from Matt. :

Oops, guess I just outed myself as an Adam Sandler fan, didn't I?

Hello everyone!!!! I'm back!!!!!
The flight home today was pretty rough and for the first time ever had to use the little air sick bag
To introduce to our newbies, I'm Shannon, dh is Steve, we have just returned from our honeymoon this afternoon and am currently 7 and a half weeks pregnant. We have had 3 miscarriages which is just one reason I am still hanging out here in TTC land--the other reason is you will not find a more supportive place on the net

Ok, so the details....
Yes as Heve told you all, the wedding went really well, until Steve's mom made an absolute ass of herself at the end--the good news, I'm guessing this means we will not have to deal with her anymore--dh knows how I feel and I never want to speak or see her again.
We had a great time out west. Steve has never seen mountains, so the first drive in was kinda like traveling with a small hyper dog bouncing between windows in the car : We stayed at 2 lovely inns while in the mountains and got in some good hiking, but I was so tired. At my friends place we also had a great time, her adopted daughter from China is just SO damn cute.
So I'm exhausted and my assisstant who has been staying here all week didn't do alot of stuff I asked her to do, so I have work to do. I'll check back later!!!

Shannon, Welcome back!! And congratulations! I am so glad you had a wonderful day. I would love to see wedding pictures when you have some. So, what did your MIL do? Why is it every family has SOMEBODY that always causes problems? The more I get to know the people, the more I realize that this is true.
