Here we go...I'm cd14, just noticed some spotting...taking it as a good sign. Though I swore I wouldn't put myself thru this on this cycle, here I am...with some hopes!

May this thread be filled with ++++++++++++++++++++

Peace all,

Mamasoleil

Mamasoleil ~ You are so funny! I thought you were begging out of the 2ww thing?

So, anyway, I'd like to join in. How do I do this? I can tell you that AF came for a visit on Oct 3rd and that my cycle is typically 28 days.

Thanks!

MountainMama-

AF came for me on the 4th. My cycles are normally 28 days too. I O'd on cd 14 this month(usually cd15) So, today I am cd 20 6dpo. I'd say you are on cd21. I don't know what day you O'd on so I can't tell how may days past ovulation you are.

Welcome!

Mountain Mama~I'm pretty much where you are, I'm not temping anymore, so I'm not sure when I O'd, BUT..I also have 28 day cycles, and usually ovulate in the middle...

Glad to have you on board Aurora.

I wasn't going to do this 2ww this cycle..but once you're obsessed..

Ha, a new 2ww, guess I can join this one too for a little while. I am 8dpo now, chart is at http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/13f56/

My temps are nice and high this cycle, but suspecting that that just might be caused by the progesterone cream, although of course I am hoping they are caused by pregnancy!!!!

If I do find myself pregnant, I hope the cream will hold me to finally hold on to a pregnancy again.

Baby dust and pos test vibes to all!!!!

Hi everyone,

Thanks for starting a new thread-the old one was getting rather long.

I'm on CD14 and will probably O today. I'm a little bummed cause we didn't BD this morning (DH tooooo tired) : and that would have been very good timing, but we did yesterday morning and the day before that, so who knows.

Mamasoleil-glad you're joining us and feeling better. I'm so regular that I'm about ready to stop temping too. Sometimes I think it would help me obsess less. I got my hopes up sky-high last month, so I’m a bit detached form it all this month in comparison, which is good, I think. I got a glimpse of just how hard this can get. But, every month a few more board members trot happily off to the “I’m Pregnant” board, and I think we’ll all get there if we stick it out. So here’s to sticking it out-with support from others in the same boat.

Cheers,
Tuli

Good to have you here Karen and Tuli.

I actually didn't temp or chart this month. I decided to just be calm and patient and see what happens.: Here I am! I felt the usual O pain on cd 14 so I am assuming I O'd then. I don't have the temps to back that up though. Since it was a day earlier than normal I don't know if I should expect AF on Oct. 31 or Nov. 1. Not a big deal I know, but I am determined not to test until the day AF is due.

Mamasoleil-I hope you have O'd!

Karen- I looked at your chart and your temps look pretty good. I'm praying for a sticky baby for you!

Tuli-I am trying to not be so obessive this cycle too.

I am so glad I have you all to share this with! Like Tuli said, every month more of us join the ranks of the pregnant and I know we will too.

to all!

Hi Ladies - Good to see you all here! I have to sit this cycle out again due to a cyst on my ovary, but I'm keeping an eye on this thread and wishing you all lots of baby dust!!

If ovualution predictor kits are right - then I O'd on cd 13 (usually 12). So, hmmm, I wonder if my egg was too young on that date based on AdinaL's information post. Boy, you can go nutty thinking about all this stuff.

By the way, I had made a doctor's appt w/ my OB/GYN but I cancelled it - I am just determined to go au natural.

~6DPO, I hope! I haven't been temp charting but had EWCM and some cramping on the 17th-18th. Then, I had an unusual heavy pinching feeling in the middle of my abdomen all evening on the 22nd...? Now I'm getting sore breasts and hoping it's not PMS!

Now for TMI about my cervix : Usually when I start feeling PMS, cervix is firm and gets firmer until it's extremely rigid and tender just before bleeding starts. Well, the last few days it's extremely soft but with a tiny hard bump at the edge of the opening. : Could this be a good sign?? Certainly I'm not going to worry about it until it's been there a week or more; if I go rushing off to the midwife it will undoubtedly turn out to be a piece of lint. :

Good luck to everyone!!

Becca - the bump is called a nabothian cyst. perfectly normal as long as it feels kind of hard compared to the rest of your cervix. If your cervix feels really soft, could that mean that you haven't ovulated yet? I can't seem to make heads or tails of my cp data, so have pretty much quit trying to figure it out. Might get easier once I start ovulating, though.

Ok, y'all... I'm not in dpo land just yet, but had to peek in here and say hello. Here's hoping this cycle I will actually drop that eggie!!!! Last cycle was a bust - no ovulation. Blah! But this time my temps have been real stable, and had really good ewcm yesterday and today - long stretch! woohoo!!!

Hi all---

I'm new to MDC and I'm impressed by the sense of community and support here! I'm at CD14 and I expect to ovulate within a day or so (soft cervix/lots of creamy cm). TTC and hoping this is the month!

Hello all, haven't been posting lately because I am on Cd29 and temp has yet to rise.
Body has made 3 attempts to O, hope this is the one and temp will rise tomorrow! Cervix was soft and high this morning but this evening feels low and firm, maybe this is a good sign?:
Well, hope to be in the 2ww soon. I'm not even concerned if we timed BD correctly or not, I just really want to O and move on to the next cycle. I wonder why my body is having a hard time O'ing
this cycle. I'm tempted not to chart Nov. and Dec. but if I have an anovulatory cycle I will chart, just to make sure my body rights it's self.
Can you tell its been a looooong cycle?:
Sorry for the rant.
Good luck to those who have O'ed and are waiting for +++++++

I don't know how I would've gotten lint up there, but historically when I rush to the dr. about some weird little problem it turns out to be something trivial like that!

Well, I'm 4dpo- but we haven't bd'd since last Sat., so I'm not holding out much hope.
On the positive side, this is my first month charting temps, and it seems like my problem may be that my cm is coming the week before I O, so the timing has probably been wrong this whole time (since I was timing bd by cm).

11dpo now and got an extremely faint, is it really there or is it not? line last night. So I just had to test again this morning and I got another faint line, but more visible this time.

So I guess I can post the first pos test to this thread, hope you all will follow my great example!

Of course, I am just soooooooooooooo scared now that I will suffer another loss (I had 4 early ones over the summer), so please all send tons of sticky vibes! Not sure how I would handle it going wrong yet again.

CONGRATS KAREN!!!! This one is a keeper, it really is!
MountainMama, congrats to you on refraining from seeking medical help!
I'm cd18, unknown if/when I ovulated. As mentionned, I had some spotting on cd11, so we'll see. Much cramping, but everymonth I have "telltell" signs of pg:

Aurora, naotalba, EnviroBecca, Tuli, NotAMamaYet, Rose, Rebekah, keep those pg vibes going, Karen has paved the way for us!

Kelly, hope you'll be able to participate next month, cause I'll be here, waiting...
I should become the 2ww hostess!Seniority eh?

Yay, Karen!!! Congratulations!!!!!
I'm sending many sticky vibes your way!

I'm at CD 17. CD 15 was my last day of creamy cm and I have not seen a temp shift just yet. The last two nights I have had uncharacteristically short sleep, which most likely affected my temps. I will definitely be looking for that temp rise tomorrow!

Hang in there everyone---Karen, you are our inspiration!!!

Mamasoleil - As much as I like you, it would be really nice if you weren't still here when I try next cycle !! Keep your chin up (and your temps, too)! One of these times it's going to happen for us *both*.

Congrats to Karen - Thinking lots of sticky thoughts for your little babe - hang in there, wee one!!

Best wishes to all of you still waiting and wondering...

Hey all, I am joining in late. We were on vacation for the last 2 weeks, so most of my 2ww has been bearable. Now it's CD10 and I feel nauseated, dizzy, or starving every few minutes. I think I'm imagining it all
Sending you all hopeful pregnancy vibes,

Hello I am new here, we are ttc #2. I am so impressed, you are all so in tune with what your bodies are doing. I have no idea when or if I O'd but dh was only in town for 3 days this month so there was no point in charting temps. If I am not pregnant then I will have to wait until Dec. to try again.
Good luck and baby dust to everyone!

Hey Karen, hope things are okay

We quit night nursing about 2 weeks ago, have been charting but hard to tell a thing since no period in 2 years.

We are "trying" again on our own tonight, tomorrow I will go for a serum hcg, no sex for 2 weeks, another serum, then Provera for 5 days, wait another two weeks for a period, so after tonight we won't be able to try for the next 4 weeks

Was really hoping we would be able to do this without a doctor's help or weaning completely, but it is looking like that isn't going to work. Which is a bummer because I hate taking pills and have been taking all these herbals to no avail!!




I won't give up hope yet,, that test might be positive soon!!!!

Good Luck everyone
