You sure didn't waste any time, Nicole!

We're feeling VERY good about our timing this cycle--both midwives were pleased by the open-ness of my cervix and my "tons" of fertile fluid. Wheeeeeeeee!

Hubby has officially agreed that the decision is out of his hands. We've gone back and forth and back and forth about when we'll be ready to TTC, so I finally told him that I can't take it anymore, and it's up to me. He says the only thing he's worried about is having insurance, but I don't think he'd ever decide if I left it up to him. We talked a week ago about this and he said we'd TTC right after my hike, then retracted his agreement : ...that's why it's not up to him anymore! As much as he worries, I know he'll be happy to have a baby whenever we end up having one, and sooner rather than later.

Shhh! I figured I could make all my mistakes while people were sleeping. If anyone notices any, kindly let me know. Plus, I figured it's after midnight on the east coast.

Good luck this cycle, Frog! I hope we have a bunch of TTC graduates very soon.

I know I'm not the only one who just has this feeling about this cycle for you.

We are on CD4 and waiting to O (Nicole, we're in the right spot, thanks!), and we're also hoping for a Christmas prezzie like this!

Good luck to you frog and all trying to catch that egg!!!

Thanks RachelS for the well wishes!

I had the monthly dream(s) of lustful sex with 1.) a random stranger or 2.) someone from my past, which signals the start of my fertile period. Seems my subconcious knows before the waking self Never knew the two coincided until FF. But this time was different~when I was younger I would worry about getting pregnant, but in this dream, I thought, hey, that would be awesome if I got pregnant from some lustful affair!! Ugh!!! What TTC does my head!!! Thanks for listening, send me the bill


Enjoy the rest of the weekend!!!

Hi everyone, it's been ages since I've had time to post anything. Nothing much happening, I think I'm waiting to O still. I'm tired of BDing! And I think my DH is also worn out. I just keep double guessing myself.... I'm like I'm Oing come on lets get busy, then the next day my temp takes a dive. So I don't know what to do anymore. I think next month I'm not going to do any temping because it's really driving me batty.

Btw Happy Thanksgiving - we did turkey last night and it was tasty!

ann109--> You are so right about the subconscious mind knowing more. When I was pregnant with DD I would "meditate" on the thought "am I pregnant?" every night after O. I got the correct answer from my subconsicous before getting a BFP! Also, at halfway through my pregnancy, which everyone thought was for sure, without fail a boy pregnancy, I woke up in the middle of the night--sat straight up like in a movie--and said outloud "oh, my god, it's a girl." Dicho y hecho (said and done) we have Claire

frog-->good luck! We're here with you, girl, to suffer out your 2ww. Your 2ww is even harder than my own

Oh, wise threadkeeper Nicole!, thank you for hosting us this week. Thank you, also, for fitting me in the WTF category.

My WTF status for this week is: still negative OPKs (PO most recently at CD18). I am at CD 20, no discernible temp shift, no pos. OPK, but lots of O pain and fertile CM (more so than I'm accustomed to!), along with general randiness all cycle long :

Help me figure this one out though, amigas: DH has been advocating waiting to TTC for a few more months until we get some life things sorted out (job change, we're moving back to the US next year, etc). The night of CD17 I told him I still had not O'd, was positive of that, and that I have no idea when I will because my pattern is off. We proceeded to dtd very beautifully, with *ahem* reckless abandon if you get my drift. Likewise last night (CD19).

My ? is, am I thinking too much like a girl to think that he just changed his mind about waiting?

Have a great week everyone. Can't wait to see more BFPs come rolling in.

p.s. if you can, take a pic of that BFP and post it somewhere for us to get jealous over

We are in the WTF stage. AF is about a week late. I spotted mid cycle dtd when I thought we were Oing but several POAS tests later, **** BFN. I am going to wait and see if AF shows by Tuesday and if not then will see about a blood test. I am usually like clockwork 28 days. I am totally lost this month.

CD3 here. AF showed while I was on a train on Friday. Of course I hadn't brought any supplies with me so I had to suffer it out for a few hours.

Nicole! please move me to waiting to O.

I am feeling pretty down right now because this month was my last month to be pregnant again before my angel baby's due date (Dec. 16). The doctor and midwife told me to wait three months before ttc after his death to heal physically and emotionally. Then another month went by while I waited out an infection. That was three cycles with unbelievable CM. And now I am drying up and wishing I hadn't listened to a word they said...

GL Frog, I have a good feeling about this cycle for me too. We BD'd every day during my fertile time. I was very laid back about the 2ww up until today. Now I'm driving myself crazy with 8 days left to wait.

Tis the season, for hot apple cider!

Waiting... trying to be patient.... Some time end of next week should be good for testing.... I have an expired pregnancy test, trying to decide if I want to get some new ones too... will probably wait and see if I like the answer from the expired one

Thanks Nicole! You probably won't have to move me this week, but its nice to know you're there to move me if needed.

To all those with BFN's or AF, I'm sorry and sending hugs. To all those waiting to know, good luck.

Pardon my obsessing today I'm working on a translation, therefore, I'm on the compu all day, and have to take "breaks" to keep my mind working!

What do you think? http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/140d64

I changed my ovulation detection method to Recommended or whatever, and it gave me dashed crossed hairs. I did not POOPK on CD15. Is it possible that CD 15 might have been a pos. OPK, neg. OPK on CD16 and O on CD17? Making me 3 dpo with BD dead on? (the prior BD was a cut and run, so to speak so I wouldn't really count that one!) Chart gurus?

thanks

p.s. If I put it on "Research" method, it gives me dashed cross hairs for CD 15.

Hi Ladies!
I've been lurking, so I've kind of kept up with everyone's progress.
Well, DH and I decided to give it one more go this month. The timing for birthing would be pretty lousy, but our hearts tell us to try again.
I'm on CD 9, taking EPO and Flax Seed Oil, both of which seem to be doing their "thing," as I've more CM this month than I have in ages. However, still waiting for OPKs and Preseed in the mail LOL.
Nicole, could you please add me back to the list, in Waiting to O? http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/13fad4
xoxo
