It's ovulation weekend (we thought I O'd last week, but clearly not LOL) . . . and my mom is visiting. dagnabbit. Last time we did the mattress mambo was at midnight Wednesday night/Thursday morning. Very + OPKs yesterday and today. No chance for another romp until late late late tonight. *sigh*
Oh, one more thing, my temp went up this morning significantly, but I also got a really bad sunburn on my face yesterday which makes me feel like I'm burning up. I also took my temp half an hour late this morning. I'll link to my chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/13fad4
Does anyone know if a big-time sunburn raise my temp? If not, why do I have such a strong OPK this morning (test line darker than test line) and a temp rise?
I'm confusled.
Thanks for any help, ladies!
xoxo

Good morning, frog! Thanks for the new thread!!

Could I be moved to the fence with spiritmomma? That seems like a place I belong

p.s. here is a link to my chart for the roster: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/140d64 thanks!

I think that my hallucination line BFP Friday might have been just that. An evap. The test I tried this a.m. was a dud. But, looking at my chart, and considering yesterday's twingies on one side, I think I may have ovulated last night. In which case, timing is not bad. Honestly, I don't know what's happening with my cycle, but yesterday would have been 14 days from the last of the spotting from the m/c. Could be ...

Considering that DH has been DTD with wanton abandon (meaning, not trying to avoid) I have to assume he would be okay with a BFP as an outcome. Ya think?

Yep, it's definately the b*tch.
This sucks. Today is my birthday and I have had it planned for 2 years that I would tell my mom and everyone what a great b-day gift I got. We were hoping to get pregnant by the end of August. I told dh that even if we would have found out yesterday that I would have been pg that we still had to tell my mom today.
Oh well, guess a Thanksgiving surprise sounds nice.

*hugs* to you all that she is visiting with too.


Congrats to the BFPs!!

Punquin, IamPink, massaginmommy . Sorry about AF. (Aside: Punquin, looked at your chart, and how cute are you two!! That will be a beautiful baby when s/he does get conceived!!)

Anyone have weird heaviness in the pelvic region associated with ovulation? Yesterday and today, I feel lots of heaviness in the pelvis. Which was the same feeling I had when I got pg in June. Not cramps, but a squeezy feeling. I can't figure out if I've ovulated or not, and my HPT this a.m. was a dud test, no control line during the test time. Only an evap. control line, waaaaay after the time limit.

Alright, enough obsessing, back to work, translation is due tomorrow morning :

Judi, I think spiritmomma is "on the fence" because she's forever trying to decided whether she actually wants to TTC or not, or be pregnant or not, or have another baby ever or not..... Heehee, you get the picture.

I'm so excited, I actually started AF yesterday, woohoo! There's hope for me that I just might be able to be officially TTC in Nov after all! This is only my 3rd PP AF, after a 50 day cycle.

But anyway, I'm still lurking like crazy on the One Thread, hoping for BFPs every morning when I log on!

Yep, Aubrey, that's probably where I belong! After the m/c, I still feel like I want to TTC, but then again, maybe not. I think I want another baby, but then again, maybe our family is already the right size. I can't get off of the One Thread, even though I'm not sure if I'm actually TTC or TTA.:

Congrats on your new cycle! Hope it's a winner!!

Sorry Punquin, IamPink, massaginmommy about AF.

Happy b'day IamPink! I got AF the day before my b'day two weeks ago and it really got me down. I hope you can stay positive and keep your head up. I'm sending you good vibes today.

I'm STILL waiting to O. It really should be anyday now. I'm CD 13 and have gotten a neg OPK 3 days in a row but they are so close to being positive that I keep thinking it has to be soon. Plus my sex drive is high which makes me think it's O time since I don't usually get 'randy' if you know what I mean.

Just checking in. to those who got AF.

I'm smack dab in the middle of the 2 week wait. I think everything is a pregnancy sign. I then convince myself I am and I tell dh that I just *know* I am pregnant and it's a sure thing. Then I second and third guess myself and think about how disappointed I will be when AF comes along. So basically I am driving myself and my family crazy I've decided to test at 8 dpo and if it comes back negative I am going to get a blood test done since it's easy and free for me to get one anytime.

Hi all--I'm here and ready for another week of "gleeful chart-stalking"!

I was so hoping for a nice, normal, unambiguous cycle this time after the constant uncertainty of the last one. Unfortunately, I'm already confused. Today is CD 12. Af was 10 days. Last night, I had ewcm, the most eggwhitey stuff I've ever seen. And it's still there today. And my cervix is really high. It would be absolutely unheard of for me to O this early--I don't think I've ever O'ed before CD 28 or so. What do you all think? I've never tried OPK's because it was so hard to pinpoint when to use them since my cycles are so screwy, but I'm thinking I might pick one up.
