Okay so last night for whatever reason (actually it was 2 am this morning) I spit on my ovuscope. I haven't had good luck with that and have yet to see any ferning. I hadn't eaten or drank anything for 2.5 -3 hours so I figured what the heck. I thought I had O'd the day or so before but yesterday I was having some O signs. Very mild ones. So anyway I spit and forgot about it. I looked at it this afternoon and Oh My Goodness!!! I have full ferns! They are beautiful and I have never seen them before ever. It has renewed my hope and made me feel as though my body really is still working.

So since it was 2 am when I spit would you chart that as today or yesterday?

Most of these are twice daily.
Ann, I'm having the same experience as you! I also usually O around 16 or 17, but last month I O'd on cd14, which was the earliest every. I was taking evening primrose (as well as Bs, vitex and flax oil). This month, I am on cd16 and still haven't Od. I'm not taking the Evening primrose this month.....so maybe it's that. Though I'm not sure why...I understood that it is supposed to improve your CM, and it did last month - it started at cd12. But so far this month, my cm is pretty lousy.


Congratulations and to everyone who got !!! I'm having trouble keeping up, but I see I missed quite a few!

Hi cking! We've been (close) cycle buddies for a couple months now!!!

Sorry about the CM. Was there a reason to stop EPO? It has really done wonders for my CM, or maybe it's the GRJ or GT or RRL...lol. I did notice this cycle was less and noticed my skin is super dry, too, due to the change in season I suppose. Correlation?

Hope O finds you soon!!!

YAY ! Congrats to all the BFP's ! A Happy & Healthy 9 months to you all :



And Tater if you got that fat pink line within your tests time frame I think it's a bfp too If you aren't sure maybe you can get a digital test ? if you get a "pregnant" on one of those you can be pretty sure it's happening. or a bloodtest at the dr's : Good luck to you !



Christy, please move me to waiting to O, cd1 here. Also I noticed Chrissy is still on there and she is like 12 wks pregnant now

Well, there was *something* there withing the 10 min timeframe, but the line got more and more distinct in the half hour after I took the test. Now the two tests appear to be unmistakably BFPs, but I'm reluctant to trust them since they weren't that way at the start. I won't believe it until I test again tomorrow... can't afford to go buy a digital one when I still have some internet cheapies left!

Wow, I'm so excited!! See I knew there would be 6...although it looks like 7, but since Tatermom isn't 100% certain yet, I guess we could count that for next week. Births and deaths ALWAYS happen in 3s....and I just KNEW this would be a great month!! Congrats ladies!!!!

So, I have never had strange reactions to progesterone before, and I've had it 5 times this year, but I have the WORST cotton mouth...and I never have a dry mouth. Plus my boobs still hurt like crazy, and I now have a quadraboob....I swear all of my bras fit a couple weeks ago!!!!! But, AF should be here by Monday (every other time it's been 5 days after the shot)...so we'll see. Still crampy but not. Nothing really to report though.

ETA: My temp skyrocketed today!! Almost 99!!! That's huge for me, especially since our heater doesn't work...so I am even more confused lol...isn't it supposed to go DOWN with AF??? I guess the progesterone in my body is affecting it or something

CKING and Ann! I had exactly the same problem last month with either EPO or RRL, I ovulated CD10 instead of CD13-14. And them my LP was 10 days instead of 12-13. So I stopped both of them. Now I ovulated CD14 but was spotting and in huge pain. So I told myself not to mess with herbs unless I know exactly what I am doing.

Wow, congratulations to all the BFPs!!!

I hoping I could add my chart to my name on the list? It's at

http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/14ce71

I'm 10 dpo, had a major temp dip at 6 dpo, and have just had my temp rocket up... so I'm hoping very very hard. OF COURSE, I'm a moron and took 2 FRER tests at 7 and 9 dpo... BFN of course. :

I really hope it was just too damn early... I want to go join the July DDC.

Honestly, I'm getting a little depressed by the whole ttc merry-go-round. This is the last cycle that we can conceive a summer baby, so if this isn't it, we may have to go back to charting to avoid, which really makes me sad.

massaginmommy: I'd count it as today...but Christy1980, what do you think, FernMaster? I used my scope one month, and had no-partial-full-ferning, but now am limiting my fertility sign obsessing, to save my sanity
Good luck!!!

CRAP! I hope that doesn't happen to me, my LP is short enough. I think we were posting about messing with herbs before, being potentially dangerous. After a few months of messing around on my own, I did go see my ND, who is monitoring what I am taking. I am hoping it works....you'll see me : if not....Thanks for the info.....

christy, since you are the fernmaster, i have a ? for you!

What's the best method for getting the spit onto the lens? How much is good? I've noticed a few times that things seem really "splotchy" like there was a lot of "goo" in there. Maybe it's because i just woke up? Should i swallow a bunch first? sorry, but this thing is completely foreign to me! I've seen full ferning, so i know what to look for, but i'm confused about the splotchiness. Thanks!

Jilly I had a lot of watery spit last night and got ferns usually I have sticky spit in the a.m. and have never gotten a fren. So I am going with swallowing a lot first.

the one thing i tried with the spit is waiting a few minutes. I got up, moved around, but didn't eat/drink anything. That's when i noticed my ferns. I had originally just spit first thing when i got up, but knew i was o'ing and looked at the scope and saw nothing. I hadn't eaten/drunk anything yet, so i did it again and got ferns. Maybe i'll stick to that plan. Does it work doing it in the evening? Should i not drink anything for a while?
