waiting to O...probably this weekend. I told myself I wasn't going to test or temp this month, but I did a test today (I only had 4 left, why not use them up, right?)

I'm hopeless.

good luck everyone!

Good luck again all of you!

Does anyone know how long after the LH surge the egg is still around?

OK, no one knows exactly? I know the egg "lives" for up to 24 hours after O, but what's the latest that can be after LH? 48 hours and no more viable egg?

We're supposed to be taking this month "off", positive LH Sat mid-afternoon, we waited til late Tues night for any "action" and now I have been feeling sick again, for the past 3 days on and off. So I am nervous that we didn't wait long enough! Argh. The thought of having to go into the doctor and admit we screwed up (pardon the pun!) like a couple of 20 year olds just is not appealing. : Plus having tests repeated, etc. if we were to m/c again. So if someone could put my mind at ease... maybe I just have the little stomach bug that's been going around DS's playgroup.

That would be my understanding. You're supposed to O within 24 hours of a positive opk, then the egg is viable for another 24 hours. I think it would be "riskier" if you'd BD before you O'd--since sperm live for a few days and they could have been hanging out waiting for the egg. Sounds like you're safe.

Greenmansions: my understanding is 24-36 hours after the LH surge you ovulate... I too think it would be riskier before O since sperm can live a few days.

Thanks all. That is what we figured. And absolute worst case, egg was gone Tuesday noonish, and that would be stretching it. And I started feeling sick Thursday which seemed a bit quick.

Gosh, weird to analyze one's cycle from the opposite perspective, of not TTC! And it's just as anxiety ridden.

Joan and Velveteen good luck this weekend!

Glad to hear you and yours are doing better now, Polka.

How ya doing Joan?
How is everyone? Got the second peak on my monitor today, but I think I O'd today. Here's hoping we caught the egg yesterday! I'm glad I've read TCOYF, since my cervix was tighter than a drum tonight...even though the monitor said peak. I actually think I started peaking Friday afternoon, and now today would have been too late.
Too bad I didn't know all this fertility stuff 10 years ago! Oh well, better to be informed later rather than never.

Anyone here take wheatgrass?

What is wheatgrass supposed to do, Velveteen? All I'm using now is the Vitex.

I got an LH surge on Sat. and thought O was Sunday, but there was no temp jump on MOnday...so...maybe I O'd yesterday. I didn't get to temp this a.m. because I jumped out of bed without thinking when I heard the puppy wimpering.

In any event, we've got the past few days covered. A January baby would be nice--it's the only month that our family doesn't have any birthdays--but my fertile time of year is coming up, so I'm actually more hopeful for next month.

Where is everyone else?

The wheatgrass is just plain great for you, but I originally started taking it for fertility reasons. It is supposed to lower your FSH. In the event that my FSH is high, thought it would be good to take it. It's great for energy too.

So Polka, you O'd early? Or was it late this time?? Are you still nursing?

A January baby would be fantastic. Plus, I have only one more try to conceive and give birth in my 43rd. year.

"Does" or "Doesn't?" Mind if I ask how often you're nursing? Ds is down to once a day, and only for a few minutes. I don't imagine that would have an impact, but I'm not sure how much nursing it takes to throw things off.

So, here's something interesting...remember how I wasn't going to temp or test this month? Then I decided to use up the last couple of OPK's I had and then, NO MORE--just let things happen. Wellllllll....today, I'm having a conversation with my chiro and she mentions adjusting me when I'm pregnant with my next one. ( Does she know something I don't?) So, then we arrive home from the chiro, look through the mail, and there is my package of OPK's that I ordered MONTHS ago, and that we'd assumed had been lost in the mail.

If I believed in "signs"....

nah

Of course, now I'll be obligated to test next month.

That's funny, Joan

I think I should stop "winging it" :LOL and get some more OPK's....I am on day 15 and just now having some sign I am gearing to O. We haven't "done it" since Sunday, but will tom.

A few days ago, Ben said to Ellie, "What do you want Mommy's next baby to be...a boy or a girl?" Wish I could be that sure!

Baby dust to you!! Happy Mother's Day everyone!!

CD2 here. Panicked a bit with the feeling sick last week, but guess I didn't need to! I go into the doctor next Tues to get the results from all my tests and to figure out what if anything we shoudl do differently.

Sounds like everyone is doing pretty well, with some hanging in there for the 2ww.

Polka, it would be interesting to see what your P4 shows. I used to O late all the time, like day 17 of a 28 day cycle and I had to take progesterone. But honestly it didn't change my cycle much. Nowadays I am so inconsistent, who knows what's up. This month O was day 12, CD1 was day 23.

Best of luck to everyone this time 'round.

Mom4tot, I love OPKs. They just confirm the "last chance" for the cycle, and I get a faint line starting a couple of days before so I know roughly when it's coming and we should pick up the activity level.

well, I doubt it b/c my LPs are getting shorter each month so I think I have a Prog. problem.

UGH......... I actually put the call in for an HSG & I'm scared to @#$$% since I had such a bad time the one b/f.
