Phoebnfam, there is a setting in FF where you can check a box to not count any cycles you dont want it to in your calculations. I use it to not count my m/c cycles so it doesnt give me super long LP's.

YYAAAAAAY!! kyles'mom/Heather!!!!!
(keeping sticky thoughts coming your way ... maybe a sticky bean altar??)

here's hoping august is good all around - never fear nurselaurie, even if we all get pg there's always new folks every week! An empty board is too sad ...

of course you can visit any time scuba!

my temp's up again (of course it did go up last month, too ...)

OK, here's my chart: http://www.tcoyf.com/forum/chart.asp?id=sfgal

So that weird spike up to 98 happened the morning after I had a drink (a margarita at a party) (I am not TTC yet, so I am allowing myself about a drink every week)... anyway, I have noticed this before -- that my temps go up the morning after I have a drink. Anyone else notice this themselves?

I haven't started the OPKs yet, even though TCOYF thinks I will O in two days. I don't have any EWCM yet, so I figure, what's the point (I usually get some, at least a couple of days before O).

Does anyone get super emotional close to O? I'm grabbing at straws here but I'm so weepy today and I'm very sensitive (mood wise) to hormonal flucuations - you can only imagine what I was like on the pill

I can't pin my mood on the whole ttc thing either - I'm not down about it - a tad obessed but I'm not frustrated yet.

Heather~ I'm so glad you got to see a darker !

TryingMommas~ No, I don't think it was a cyst after all. I either O'd later than both I and ff originally thought, or I had a very brief chemical pg. I'm guessing it was just a late O. Glad you're feeling so hopeful.

FSM~ YAY! A faint line, and a temp rise! Things are looking good for you, mama. : for a darker line soon.

zion~ Your chart looks wonderful.

scubamom~ Many happy thoughts for tomorrow. I know you'll see a strong, healthy .

lotusblossom~ Thanks for the heads up about drugstore.com. I ordered pre-seed from babyhopes.com, and it was $16.99. Not too bad.

hannahmom~ My temps look like yours right before I O. There's still hope, don't be sad.

celesterra~ Hope the crampiness is lucky for you this month.

Thanks for all the nice comments, everybody. It is easy to be the queen O' personals when af is here and there is nothing to obsess over! : for a month of many bfps. It looks like we have 3 or 4 on the way!

Happily parenting our snuggly wild child since 2007 and her little brother since 2011!

holy cannoli! i go away for a mere 2 1/2 (okay, almost 3) weeks, and looky looky what's going on! i'm sorry i haven't been able to catch up yet more than peruse, but i wanted to send some congrats and mega-sticky-vibes to all these bfps!!!!

vacation was nice. i love the beach. i'm tired, though (family overload, i think), and i'm happy to be home. our ttc saga is completely uninteresting right now, since over the course of the entire vacation, dh & i had absolutely NO time alone together (i'm quite bitter about it, actually) ... so, anyway, i'm off the grid until next cycle. sigh. well, it will give me time to catch up on what y'all have been doing!

Ok...I hope I'm not jinxing myself. And I'll be able to take some more tonight when I can get to the drugstore...
but...


It looks as though you'll have to move my name.

I had a positive pregnancy test just now. I just felt like I needed to take it. And I did...and it said...

I'm Pregnant.

Holy crap. lol

I have sooo many personals I'd like to do....I'll have to see how long I can type while dd and the puppy play. The puppy is really gentle and patient-it's just that dd doesn't remember to hug gently. She has a lot of love for him!

Heather-I am so excited for you!!! : for you and your little bean

meggles- : that this is your reboot for a BFP this cycle!

TryingMommas-I have my fingers crossed for you. Sounds like this could be it! I really hope so!

PheobNFam-your symptoms sound really promising!

FreeSpiritMama- : : : Hope you see darker lines soon!

celesterra-I am really hoping for you! There has been so much going on here that if I remember right you have a dr appt for a blood test later this week, right?

zion-: for you too!

My goodness it will be a busy pregnancy board full of such lovely mamas!

I lurk here daily and it makes me a little sad that I am having to wait to conceive....but I just can't stay away. I want to see all you get your BFPs. Hopefully I'll have a great bunch of newbies when I am ready to try again. I have been on my thyroid meds for 2 weeks now so in 3 weeks I get to go back to see how I'm doing. I hope hope hope my body will be ready but I am expecting that it will take a little longer. And reading up on hypothyroid is scaring dh (and me a little) and it is making him want to wait a little longer. What a journey. A year of trying and now the waiting game until we get to start again. Thanks for letting me vent a little.

so when i got to work today a friend on mine told me that she was 5 weeks pregnant and wanted me to do her hypnobirthing class for her. i told her about all of this craziness that has been going on with my cycle. she insisted that i test right then. so i did. and there was a faint line!!!! I am shocked and sooooo excited. apparently you have to wait the full 5 minutes for these tests we have. i was only waiting like 2 minutes the last couple times i tested then when i came back 20 minutes later it was positive.

so for me too!!! add me to the august list!!!

i am still going to test again with a store bought test to be sure. i just can't believe it!!!

JENN! After such a long cycle last time, this is AWESOME!!! You're a PCOS grad, so send some of that dust over here!!!

What did you do differently this month?

Looks like I'll be the lone one to stick in there until Thursday... All the best to all those double-liners, and much love to everyone else...

ps: i just went for a walk for my lunch break, stopped into a thrift shop and bought some baby clothes... does this speak volumes about how desperately hopeful i am???

Celesterra - I'll send all sorts of dust over that way.
I can't really say I did anything different. I've been going to the gym...I've been charting like a nut. And REALLY paying attention to the cervical fluids.

This is surreal.

I think it's a _really_ good sign that you're feeling it this time. Good luck with the hormone checks!

Congrats to all the other new BFPs, too! How great that you'll be taking so many friends with you through pregnancy!

Seems like August is a fertile month. Good thing. This is TTC month for me... IF i ever ovulate. I'm taking this as a good sign of things to come.

CONGRATS to all you BFP mamas!!! Reading about your positive tests make me want to test (yeah... only 7dpo here, and NOT going to test early).

I am REALLY feeling it this month. I've been getting crampy ever since I O'd (like, once a day or so... especially in the past few days). That's not normal for me, and with my "mama" radar going off... I have SUPER high hopes. I just don't want to have them all come crashing down, you know?

A really close friend (and neighbor) of mine is due March 17th. We'd both been trying for a long time, and each had a loss (I had an ectopic in March, and she miscarried in January). I feel really close to her, and would LOVE to share pregnant time with her.

I wish I could just KNOW for certain, right now. If only I could look into my belly and see if there is a baby starting to grow.

Nevermind nevermind...Mine was a false alarm. I realized in the middle of Walgreen's that I had misread my test this morning. I took another and sure enough it was negative.

I feel lke such an idiot. lol

ANyway...sorry.

Congrats to all of y'all who are pregnant. Good job on reading your tests.

Welcome back, pandora - how's it feel being a married woman? Congrats on the wedding ... I hope you still had a wonderful time despite af.

Wow - nurselaurie, maybe your dream wasn't so far off if these bfp's keep it up.

PhoebNfam - I know just how you feel. Part of me really does feel different this time (like I'm smiling inside, even if that sounds so corny) but I am worried about being too fixated/optimistic and then getting devastated if it isn't the right time for it to work and af greets me in 10 days or so. I'm trying to find that balance, but it isn't easy.

big congrats to all the new BFPs!!!!!!!!!

congrats to all the bfp's! you make it look so easy
