CD 15 here. CM has been consistently sticky and seems a little more so. I'm hoping to have some decent EWCM this month. We'll see. I'm also hoping to get DH to BD tonight. I think things are moving forward hormonally. But since I still am not temping I guess I'll never know for sure unless I end up pg.

I know I said I wasn't going to, but I had to go, and it was there... so I : Peed on a Stick... And I desperately want to tell you all that it was positive, but I can not. There was only one line. I am not pregnant. Maybe it's for the best right now though because of our move. But oh well, at least now when DH comes home I wont have to test. And I wont have anything to tell him. When AF shows up, he'll be away again, so it'll be gone before he comes back home and we can DTD lots after that. Maybe next month...

Hooray, jillybeans! Seems like TTC can be just one big waiting game sometimes.

CD16 here. Thought I had some O pain yesterday but I'm not sure. We did BD on CD14 (late evening) and so far I don't think CM has evolved past "sticky". So I don't think I've O'd yet. Still not temping (still sleeping erratically). Hoping to O soon. We don't BD very often so we have to time things really well. Or maybe we should just make a point to BD a lot and stop worrying about timing so much. Don't know.

Still doing the EPO and red raspberry. Does anyone here know much guiffesin (sp.) is needed to be effective? And what exactly does the green tea do to help? I don't like it but I am trying really hard. Maybe someone can convince me?

Thanks!

Ok, So i've been thinking. Why is that I have all these days of EWCM, and DTD when I have it, but I'm still not getting pg? This is the second month in a row that I've temped and DTD a minimum of 3 days before ovulation, and the day of, and last month even the day after. Why is it that it's not working. I thought EWCM was the key to getting the egg. This is our 5th month TTC. I have to move to the other board when I get AF. Should I be worried about DH's little swimmers? If so, How do I suggest to him that it could be him that is the reason we're not getting the job done? I hate to think of how hurt he would be because of it. But I know that I am ovulating, and I know that I have the right kind of cervical fluid. What's the deal???

(check out all the days of wet, and eggwhite CM that I have on my chart in my signature)

If you have a copy of TCOYF, there is a chapter about going thru SA first, since it is fairly easy, she even suggest to have it done after 4 months of unsuccesfull but well timed TTC. I'd use this as a starting point to talk to you husband.
I started feeding mine multivitamins, extra zinc and selenium already, just in case. And told him if we don't get pg, he is the one to get checked first since it doesn't hurt.
You could also try every other day thing one of the cycles.

Your timing might be off. Fresh sperm CAN live up to five days, but sooner is better and if there aren't swimmers waiting when the egg is released, you won't get pregnant (so, day of may be too late, and day after is definitely too late).

starflower: green tea is helpful for cm. I hated it plain, so used it flavored, or mixed one bag green tea w/ another flavored tea(taking this one out after a minute)

Mommy_in_chaos:

I used to wonder the same things when i started ttc dd. the month we actually conceived, we did the sperm meets egg plan
http://www.pregnancyloss.info/sperm_meets_egg_plan.htm
which helped. I've heard that dtd too much can sometimes not be beneficial.
and if you are ready for seeing someone about it, then def. do the s/a first. But before you enter THAT big stress-filled area, try the sperm meets egg plan.

Mommy in chaos - Wish I could help you. I'm in the same boat but one month behind you.

Jilly - You had mentioned the sperm meets egg plan before and I googled it a few weeks ago. We are in the middle of trying it right now. I just started OPK's for the first time ever and we started DTD everyother night recently. I hope it works for me. I don't think anything is wrong with DH's sprem since we concieved DS on the second try.

Hugs around ((()))((()))((()))

Tryingagain~ Yep you were right!! You really were encouraging... even saying that my boobs being sore were a good sign (6-7dpo). Thanks for all your help.

I tried to post here earlier but apparently the computer ate my post.

I was hoping that DH and I would get a chance to BD again tonight. No such luck. He ended up working until 4 a.m. last night (at least it was from home) and then worked late again - until 8:30 tonight. I think he said he only slept 4 hours. Between his work schedule and DD refusing to go to bed, it wasn't going to happen tonight.

I'm on CD17 now, still no EWCM, but quantity is improving on the sticky/creamy stuff so I am still hoping to O soon and get some good quality CM going here.

The green tea I got a few days ago is flavored with jasmine and I definitely prefer it to the regular green tea, but I still don't actually "like" it.

So what's the deal with green tea helping CM but it has caffeine in it which I thought was supposed to be bad?

Just curious mostly. I suppose I could actually give up my coffee. : I am trying to do half decaf. Does that count?

I am a 40 year old unschooling, belly dancing, artist-mama of one almost 8 year old. I just had brain surgery and blogging.jpg about it a bit because it's just so surreal.

read this article starflower.
http://www.babyhopes.com/articles/greentea.html

we drink green tea all the time, and after a while you do get used to the flavor. I hated it at first too. I can honestly say that while everyone we know is sick, we start chugging the stuff, and we are VERY VERY RARELY sick.
