Although I almost think I should just stay in waiting to O. . We didn't BD close enough to O. I think this month is a total no go for me. Oh well.

Congrats to all the BFP's. Wow I guess there's a real pick me up when spring hits

Thanks for starting the new thread, Sunnylady.
I'll probably be lurking here for a while (still like it better here than the pregnancy boards), but for now I just wanted to thank all you ladies for your support, advice and humor to make these months easier. I learned more here than I'd ever known before about ttc, and have no doubt that helped me get pregnant.
If anyone's interested, what we did different: B6 (last 3 cycles), vitex and progesterone (this cycle), guaifenesin around O for better cm, and perfect timing. The last two cycles I o'ed cd 17, so we gambled that would happen again, and we bd'ed 2 days, 1 day before, twice on day of o, and am day after, and made sure to abstain about 5-6 days before that.
Lots of for everyone, especially those of you that have been here a while.

Thanks for the new thread.

I am on the 2 week wait now. Had a slight pinkish discharge this morning. Possibly an implantation bleed, I had exactly the same thing when I was pg with DD.

Keeping my fingers crossed while trying not to get my hopes up!

Thanks for starting up the new thread! We're still waiting to O although I actually got a very very faint second line on my opk yesterday. I'm a bit skeptical though as I'm only on cd 9 right now. We bd'ed anyway last night just to cover bases with no objection from my husband, of course. :LOL Good luck to everyone this month and congrats again gabry!

Okay ladies.. I have been testing like crazy with cheapie Dollar Tree tests. (I'm really not sure why..) Yesterday I thought I saw the faintest faintest line, but I wasn't sure if maybe I waited too long and it was an evaporation line. I took 4 more of the same things, and they all looked the same. But because I've never gotten a positive with those kind, I wasn't real sure how great they are. :

My period was due today, but didn't show! : Happy May Day!

So I decided to go out and buy a better test. Can someone please help me look at it? It was a faint positive, I think.. it got a bit darker but not RIGHT AWAY like with my other pregnancies. Does this look like a to you??

Looks like a + to me. Maybe wait another day or 2 and take another with FMU, just to make yourself feel more secure with a BFP

for you!

I agree, cautious congrats Witchymama! I went through a few days of insecurity like that, but the lines did end up getting darker gradually, tho not as quickly as I would have hoped. Patience is a beautiful thing!

Congratulations, WitchyMama2! That's a great line!! As long as some line was there within the time limit, it's a BFP!

Well, technically it's Monday...and I said I was going to wait until Monday before I tested again...12:30am is good enough, right? 8 hours won't really make a difference right? Well, it's faint, but there is indeed a line, and much easier to see than Friday's "is there or isn't there a line" :LOL DH wants to test again is 2-3 days to be sure...and I asked if my period didn't come would that be sure enough? Cuz it's due Wed/Thurs! :LOL

Witchymama, I had a faint line like that with DD. I tested again a few days later and it was much darker.

I think if a line appeared within the time then you are pg! Congrats!

Thank you for peeking at my lines everyone, and for the congrats!

I tested again this morning with FMU, and that second line is definatly there. Though its not what I'd call a BFP, there is no mistaking its there. It is slightly darker than the one I took yesterday.. so I am pretty confident! Now just hoping and praying this one sticks.

Yes, you can move be now I think.

to everyone ttc!

Well, we took this cycle off and I've been in the waiting to be ready catergory, but we have now decided to get back at it! I just o'd with no bding anywhere in sight (at least not the kind that will get you pg! ) so even though I'm in the second part of my cycle, go ahead and move me to waiting to O.

DS is 30 months and asking for a baby at our house a few times a week. We're working on it already! Congrats to our first 2 + in May!

Yeah to all the new seedlings! I'm CD 7 and fired up for May! I told Dh I wanted an Aquarian baby (no offense to you goats out there) anyway since we are both Aquarians and dd is Libra. I charted again, but I worry a bit now after reading all your posts. Dh is convinced we just need to be VERY proactive KWIM! :LOL
Well, I guess I'll be having a happy mum's day...

Sending out lots of and

I've got a question. . looking at my charts I always spot for days before AF (3 or more). It's spotting, generally on and off, usually barely enough for a pantyliner. Might that mean that my LP is even shorter than I think? Is my LP really from O to real AF, or is it from O to the first day I spot?

Lexymama - How much EPO are you taking each day? I think that lack of EWCF is my major problem.

http://www2.fertilityfriend.com/home/9f778 could you girls check out my last cycle chart and this one? What do you think of my temps returning to above coverline? (coverline was 98.0 last cycle) I did have a pretty good period a good 3 oz of blood.. but i am still cramping slightly and it's all old blood since the flow ended and the spotting started... I don't htink i've ever seen my temps do this before..? anyone else seen it before? Should I test just to see? My nips aren't painful anymore..

*confused*

Yvonne, my temps are really erratic during my period - above the coverline, usually. However, if it's not normal for you, maybe you should test with a cheapie HPT.

Well, I rebooted today. I was expecting it since I tested negative at 12DPO yesterday. This month I may try Guafinessan to increase EWCF. I think that is my biggest fertility obstacle. I'm O'ing, timing intercourse properly, and have a good enough LP. I'm thinking the lack of EW is the problem here.

Hi Lexymama and everyone else....I have a ? about Vitex. I'm assuming since it's mentioned so often here that it's safe to take while bf'ing? I'm anovulatory since my son's birth (3/04) and we're TTC #2. I've been reading up on Vitex since visiting this thread, but haven't seen anything conclusive about taking while bf'ing.

Thank you!

ITA about the EPO (enough acronyms?) I've been taking it for about 4 months and I've gone from 2 days of really thick ewcm to 5 days of tons of nice stuff. I've also been taking vitex for 3 cycles and last month had a longer LP...hoping this is my month too!

Lexy where are you in your cycle? I am 7dpo today, probably testing next Wednesday or so...as long as I can wait! That will be 12dpo.
