And I owe Frog an apology. I'm sorry, I had not thought about how insensitive a remark I made about a certain person not deserving a baby. I've had time to think about it, and it was just a gut reaction for how I felt at the time, ykwim? I'm sorry I said that, I'm going to edit my post on the other thread.

big temp drop for me today, BUT, it was taken one whole hour before usual wake up time (thanks, dd!), so if it were at my regular wake up time, it would be higher, right?

still holding onto hope!

In the US, today is when the clocks go backward one hour. If you changed your clocks before you went to bed last night, your clock showing an hour earlier than you usually get up is actually the time you have been getting up. For myself, my clock read 6:33 am when I took my temperature this morning -- but I did not change my clocks last night. When I came out to record the temp on fertility friend, the clock on the cable box, which changes automatically, read 5:30 am. I haven't checked TCFOYF yet for how to handle this, but I think for the rest of this cycle I have to remember to adjust the temperature as though I had taken it an hour later than usual. Either that or set my alarm for an hour earlier than usual. (Once I adjust my clock to the right time, it will read 6:00 am at the time that used to be 7:00 am...)

Christy, please add me to waiting to O. Af showed on Friday 10/27 after my first post-loss ttc cycle.

Question: I know that my luteal phase used to always be 14 days, but now it has been 11 days for each of the post pregnancy loss cycles (4) (I wasn't charting temp except on the last one, but have very pronounced mittelshmerz). What's up with that??

Thanks for the new thread, Christy!

Tara:You mentioned at the end of last week's thread you were doing visualizations and affirmations. I have tried both and am either not focussing enough or have really bad technique! (For example, my visualization ended up with me freaking out I would get so large while pg that I would not be able to um, clean myself after using the restroom...TMI, sorry...I've never been pg, so I have a hard time with the pregnancy visualization part..)

I was wondering if you have sources you use to guide you through those V&A, or it is somehting you have created on your own? TIA for your feedback! Congrats on everything coming together for you and DH this cycle! :

That is what ff says about daylight savings. Basically don't change anything because your body will adjust quickly and one off temp shouldn't do too much damage to the chart.

Ann - A friend took a course on visualization and told me about it. She said to do it in 1st person. I visualize myself looking at two lines on a test and celebrating being preg then I picture myself looking down at a later date to see a small belly growing. I don't visualize anything past say 6 months preg so in my mind I'm always super cute with a little pudge belly under my shirt and a big smile and glow. It's important to keep it super positve for it to work. I guess your mind and body want to coincide so if you keep your mind believing and picturing that you will get preg your body will do whatever it can to make that fit and become possible. I hope that makes sense.

I made cards with affirmations I like and put them throughout my house so I see them and stop for a sec and repeat them in my head over and over throughout the day. This site has exaples of some good affirmations. http://www.empoweredchildbirth.com/s...n/connect.html

I hope this makes sense and helps some. I also hope it was ok for me to post all this info online. It might help some others too, I hope.

My temp went up a bit this am. I think I o'd this weekend but will wait and see what goes on with the temp the next couple days.

I am so sorry, but this is making me laugh hysterically!

I'm trying to visualize as well, but it's hard to keep out those nasty little "What if's" that keep creeping in. Try, try some more!

I'm still early in the 2ww, but I feel like crap this morning- I don't know what the deal is, but it feels like someone with a blowtorch blew a hole in the back of my esophagus! And I have been eating pretty mildly. Very annoying. I keep racking my brain trying to think... maybe too hot oatmeal yesterday? I'm only noticing it this AM.

At any rate... hugs n kisses to all who are waiting to O- just think of it as a fresh new start! (I know I will... wait! That's the wrong kind of visualization, Clara!)

So i found out that TWO of my friends from HS are pregnant.....and i have to admit i'm soooo jelous....one friend is married to a real jerk (and thats being nice) and they can't even take care of the kid they already have.....:

and the other friend is married but dosn't live full time with her husband(although maybe now that they are having another baby they will pull things together and realise they are MARRIED and not just causally humping like bunnies), this is also her second child her DS is 4 and she got pregnant b/c she had a lapse in her birth control (nuva ring) b/c her gyn had to push her apt back a week....

i don't mean to sound bitter or hurt anyone's feelings.....but i had a pregnancy loss over the summer and it's still kind of emotional when people who don't plan on getting pregnant do and i lost my baby and wanted mine soooo badly

thanks for listening to my rant.....i feel better getting that out!

CD 8 for me...still spotting. I hate that end of the period period. Hopefully DH and I can BD tonight since he is going out of town for the next week. Fingers crossed that I do not O early.

Not much going on so I am totally stalking jezzy's chart (looks awesome!) - keep us posted girl.

Thanks Tara for the info and link! I saved it to my favs to read at another time, as right now I am off to rake leaves!

DoulaClara: I didn't want to add to the post earlier, due to the already TMI content, but when I shared the panic about not being able to reach my parts, my husband said not to worry b/c he'd craft a pretty "butt stick" for me. Classy

nope, we forgot to turn back the clocks, so it was 5:30 (with the time change, actually 4:30). i usually get up at 6:30. make any sense?! :

good morning, ladies!!

absolutely nothing going on over here. i'm on cd26 with no signs of O. i vascillate between being really angry and frustrated with these weird cycles and being grateful that my body is giving me more time to prepare. i just have a hard time getting over the fact that i've ovulated only ONCE in almost 4 months.

i've channeled my frustration to work on things i actually CAN control -- like working out (i've lost 3 pounds!) and searching for the perfect standard poodle to rescue. it's actually working out really well.

i do want a baby with all of my heart, but i am doing everything i can to fascillitate that, the rest i have to the leave up to god. in the meantime, i'm enjoying keeping my head and hands full of other good things.

Christy1980 - please move me to waiting to know.

I'm at dpo 5 and just trying to take it easy. I promised my DH that I'd concentrate on job hunting and I've been focusing on that. I may be close to getting a job, I will hear this coming week. I have to say that it has helped to keep my mind off of ttc. And that has been good for me since I am a tad bit obsessive!

I'm sure there is a pattern to my moods. I think FF should also graph moods to see how they correspond to your cycle!! Funny!

I'm now very excited about Jezzy's chart!!!!

mosesface- here's hoping you O soon. And way to go for rescuing a dog! We just got our rescue dog (Lab mix) two months ago (she was taken by Detroit Animal Police for some unknown reason, transferred to a rescue organization and now she's our little pooch!) and she's added so much fun to our lives. We didn't realize how robotic it had all become until she jangled things up a bit!

I've always enjoyed cooking, but since TTC, I have become a maniac. I cook constantly. We have two refrigerators and two freezers, and both freezers are packed! I've also been canning and baking up a storm. Hopefully it will come in handy in those first few months when I feel too tired to cook after work, or in those first few weeks of bonding with the baby. In the meantime, I feel productive, and my house fills with all kinds of good smells.

ann109- I totally hope we meet up at some point- you seriously sound like my kind of people! You're in the Detroit area, yes?

Jezzy- I am also on a chart watch- your chart looks awesome! We should really pick a "chart/charts of the week" to stalk!"

jezzy, is this your first clomid cycle? I remember mine and i was SOOO impatient! I tested + at 12dpo. Good luck to you hon!

I'm breaking out the big guns this cycle. Got a list for the health store a mile long! Hoping the vitex really does work as a natural clomid, my post-O hormones need it bigtime! But hooray for a normal lp, first o'ing cycle, previous problems, and NURSING!

DoulaClara - Me too. I'm cooking and baking like mad. And I'm so experimental, trying out new things like I never used to. Funny!

Hi everybody!

CD 9 over here. I'm just getting over a bout of bronchitis. : I had to take a Zpack and some prescription cough syrup and it's making me extra juicy. For some reason I feel as if I'm going to O earlier than I did two months ago. This is my slow ovary's turn to spit out an egg and I usually don't O until around CD 18, but I'm so juicy right now, and RANDY!!!! I want to jump DH every time I see him, but I know that we don't want to burn ourselves out before we really get into it (CD 12-20). I don't know if I can hold out though.

I've had some really strange dreams lately. I had a dream the other night that I was in the hospital (I'm planning on a homebirth) having a baby and the OB tells me to prep for a c-sec. I told him nothing was wrong and he starts giving orders to the nurses. In the dream I think, "maybe if I squat the baby will come down quicker" so I do and then I see a head crowning. Then I give a push and this beautiful little baby comes out. The baby was really slippery so I couldn't get a good grip, but she was gorgeous! : I was so happy and then I was wondering where DH was. I woke up. Then I had a dream last night that I was helping another woman have her baby. Basically I just caught. I even did the perineal support as the head was crowning. That was cool. I think it's a sign. Then last night we're at a family style birthday party and my DH's best little buddy (9 month old) christens him with a good old puke. I told him that he's been marked for parenthood. Anyways, that's the update. No O yet, but we're waiting and watching....

Cross posting this between TTC in our 20's and here, just because now I'm a bit more... focused.

I have had cramps all morning. All of a sudden, they're getting much worse. I'm on 7 DPO, and part of me is wondering if my knowing that this day is a good chance for implantation is making it worse, or what. I do know that it wasn't this bad until I watched a fake eye test that a friend forwarded to me, where at the end you are concentrating on a fake eye test, and a horrible ghoul pops out and screams at you. Now it's turning into a "very interesting sensation." It's requiring a lot of my attention.

Any advice would be really happily accepted. I may take some advil or something and go lay on my bed for a while.

Still waiting to O. Ugh, for the last 3 weeks I've been waiting to O. Cd 23 and who knows when I will. Last cycle was my first cycle charting and I o'd on cd 27. It'd be really great if it happened again around that time (honestly it'd be really great if it happened cd 14!). I've never had a predictable cycle though and it always varies in length so I'm trying not to get my hopes up for o-ing in the next few days.

I know it sounds silly but I really REALLY wanted to be able to tell the family at Christmas that I was prego and it seems that is quickly slipping away. I had this whole fantasy in my head of how it would go and how great it would have been. I know there is still hope as long as I ovulate sometime in the next few weeks but I guess I'm just feeling down about the whole thing.
