Cant believe I am actually on on a Sunday but Maxi is sleeping so I wanted to update FF and thought I would stop by here too!

Can I be moved to waiting to know? (Jamie I will pm you too). I am pretty sure I Oed on the 16th. I didnt have a ton of EWCM like I usually do but there was some and also just very watery which I suppose is ok too. My temp spiked yesterday am and was still up this am (good sign since I had a few random one day high temps this cycle) and I was dried up yesterday -- sticky. A bit watery/sticky today so not sure what that means. I have been really crampy yesterday and today too -- anyone know what that might be about?

Hope this is a good week with lots of +++++++!!!!!

Great smilies, Jamie! You're very creative. Fun post!

Just hangin' out here, 11 dpo on practice cycle #2. About 8 more cycles until the real deal.

Good luck to everybody who's playing for real money!

Are Jodi and Megan anywhere around? I wanted to send lots of hugs -- have been off the computer for a couple days since I was busy partying hearty for my birthday yesterday.

But seriously -- the same thing happened to me this winter and the women on this list were such a wonderful support -- so happy for me when I found out I was p/g, and so supportive and loving when it ended so suddenly. Please don't censor yourselves on our account.

I emailed my dh with the days I think I'll be fertile and told him to put it on his calendar. We sound like such a yuppie couple Looking forward to it though -- and am going to ask our new roommate to clearly post his work hours

Hi ladies, can I join you?
My Dh and I have been ttc for just over 2 years and we've had one m/c and one ectopic pregnancy.
We are just had a 4 month break from ttc while we were in a transition between cities and jobs. So we are back in the saddle with renewed energy,a fertility monitor and a Clomid prescription!
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all!!
Megan

Magoo!! I had an ectopic 10/03 also. Were they able to save your tube? PM me if you want, I'm interested in talking to other women who have gone through it.

I'm 11 dpo and not sure when to test. Normally my lp is 14 days, but last month was 16 days. I ordered some online cheapies, but don't think they'll be here for another week. I was hoping that my hsg last month would "clear out my tube". We'll see. This 2ww is getting a bit old, kwim?

hey there. AF is here and with a venegance. i'm ok though. will definitely be getting my progesterone checked at 7 dpo. we're taking our family vacation next week so i'm putting all my energy into getting ready for that. it helps take my mind off this ttc stuff, too.

anyone who has had a m/c before....with your first cycle after m/c, do you usually O about the same time you normally would??? i'm sure its different for everyone, but wanted to get an idea.

megan - i pm'd you...

thanks again to everyone who has offered support in the last few days. you ladies are wonderful.

can't believe another week is here...hi everybody...

I was a little confused and thought I was showing O symptoms but when I checked my cervix was low, closed and firm...large amounts of cm but all white and creamy...guess that stretchy bit this morning meant nothing and neither did the o type pains...

have to say that pms symptoms have been less so I think supps are helping with that.

I don't think I o'd the other day. FF gave me a coverline, but I'm not entirely convinced. I'm still getting tons of EWCM even though I'm getting a BFN on my OPK's. DH and I GIO this morning and I think we will tonight if I can convince him (he's currently chasing cows so I'm not sure when he'll be back!) so we'll see!

My first RE appt. is tomorrow. :

Where's my cycle buddy, kyle98sean02?? We definitely need a BFP together!!

's to all the reboots and recent m/c's. Please stick around...this place won't be the same without you!

's and to all!

Ahh, you guys are the best.

My mom called today and talked to dh. She wants him to set up a day at the salon for me and then she will send him a check. She's the best.

I decided to make myself some nice pads today too. So I have some luxurious red velour pads now. They are very comfy.

Tomorrow I have an appointment to do another quantitative Hcg and I'll talk with the doc about what's going on with me while I'm there (its the only way to talk fertility and have the insurance cover it). I know what the results will be but I'm still nervous.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

Megan-Moms are the best! That was so nice of her to do!

Does anyone know what type of batteries most BBT's take? I think mine need replaced. I have an Omron (pink) BBT. TIA

Amy, just open it up (it's very simple to put back together) and read the 3 little numbers on the battery.

so I'm using fertility friend. How do I code this bleeding? Is it just menstrual?

I guess that I would code it as menstrual but call it spotting...they don't usually start your cycle over again if it's just spotting...you can always change it again after your dr. appt.

I am sorry you are going through this.

Waiting to be ready.

I happily started menstruating after being off the minipill for several days. Seems like a pretty normal menses, and not so much like the sporatic unpredictable kind that was more typical of being on the POP. So now that I have a period marked on the calendar, I've been ridiculous about predicting when I might ovulate months from now Dh thinks I'm nuts.

Pregnancy dreams happen pretty often too, and my dd keeps telling me that it's hard to wait for there to be a baby in my tummy.

My mom called yesterday to tell me she had a dream that I gave birth to a baby girl. She calls maybe every few months, typically, so that was kind of neat. Though in the dream, we named the baby Isis, so now my mother is convinced we Must name the next baby Isis, and dh is quite against that

cd 10, subscribing.

Jodi and Megan, 's; big massive huge 's.

I am so stressed right now, I'm probably not even going to O this month :LOL Between buying the house, and my sick cat, I want to get in bed, cover myself with Grandma's afghan and just sleep till it's all over. :sigh:

I'm so stressed, I FORGOT to go to my cousin's 21st birthday party on Saturday. Can you imagine, just FORGETTING that there is a surprise birthday party that you're supposed to be at?

Amy, your temps are all over the place! Do you temp at the same time every day? Do you get up a few times overnight? It looks to me like you might have o'd on that last day of EWCM.

Have a great day everyone!

I won't be TTC this month, so I probably won't be around much.

I just wanted to pop in and give a to Jodi and Megan. I'm so sorry.

Jodi - I've had two confirmed and one probable m/c. Every time I O'd exactly 13 days after I started bleeding. Even with this last one where I was 12 weeks and had a D&C. So, it is possible that your body will go right back "on schedule".

Positive thoughts and for all who need them.

Yes! I have been very good about temping at the same time for the last 2 cycles. Some temps may be 10-15 min. off from the previous temp. but for the most part everything is consistent. I don't get it. It really doesn't matter what the times are b/c my temps are still erratic! I don't get up at all during the night either. I think my therm. needs a new battery and so that could be a cause. Oh well. I'm printing out all of my charts and taking them w/me to my RE appt. this morning. Maybe he can shed some light?
