I was looking through the lists... please make sure you are in the right place. Please let me now what changes need to be made. Didn't Cujobunny get a BFP?

Many Blessings!! Rachel

May I join? I am officially "not trying, not avoiding," but definitely hoping for a new little one soon! DH is getting more on board and I think will be as happy as anyone who already has two kids can be when and if we get a BFP.

I am still nursing my 27 month old DS, though mostly only at night. He often nurses to sleep (his preference) and will nurse during the night, too, as we co-sleep. We're *mostly* done with nursing during the day, though. I can tell when he's tired as he comes and asks for "mama-mommy moolt!"

First PPAF came when he was 19 months, to the day, and first for-sure ovulatory cycle was in September, I think, when he turned 2. Not charting here. I've tried it and found it difficult, especially with him nursing at night so I don't sleep all that well. So watching other signs and praying for a girl soon!

So, if I could please be added to Waiting to O, I'd love to hang out with the mamas here.

wow

RachelS thansk for all the hard work

i would not even have thought about it being Dec wiothout your link at the bottom of the Nov thread.

I am well past 2 weeks -- but as i sit here with no pos home test and no AF I can't see where else I'd belong.

I hope to get AF soon so I can get started with a new cycle and use the O tests i bought to see if i am Oing at all or not.

Jellybean -- I wans thinking about you this moring -- how are you doing?

Morning ladies, Rachel thanks for starting this for us today! Congrats to WitchyMama, it's so exciting when you get that first PP AF back, and welcome to HeatherB. This is an awesome group ladies.

Aimee more hugs to you this morning mama. You've been on my mind.

As for me, temp went up again by .02, not much but I'll take it. If I really O'd on CD22 that would put me 10 (or is it 11) DPO. I MIGHT test on Sunday being that it's my birthday and it would be really cool to have a pos test, but I am nervous that if it was neg it would dampen the day. Who knows?!

And ladies! I need to see more chart links in your siggys!!! I have to fill my chart stalking obsession so that I can ignore my own and it seems like few are linking these days

Yogachick, I added my chart to my sig. (I have noticed that a few of the chart links don't work in the mama's sigs here)

Temp dropped today. Hope it goes back up tomorrow. Normally my period would be due today, but since I was charting, I know that I ovulated late. Therefore AF is not actually due for 4 more days. I feel nothing still, no symptoms. Just waiting...

Woo for NVmama's chart! I kept scrolling over your siggy hoping it was hidden a few days ago since we are so close on cycles. Here is hoping that your temp goes back up nice and purdy tomorrow :

Aimee, yes FF really does make it that easy. As long as you can get consistent with temping and checking your CM it pretty much does the rest for you. It took me a few weeks to really get the hang of things but it even comes with free daily lesson plans that teach you all sorts of good TTC info. I had never charted, still haven't read TCOYF and I am obsessed with charting now

I think I'm TWW now.

FF said I ovulated much earlier than is normal for me, so I'm ignoring that.... but my temp jumped again today... It says I o'd on CD 13 (that NEVER happens... well, I don't chart, but as far as I can tell from CM and ov pain) but I had the temp jump again today, so I guess I o'd CD 16 or 17 (more typical).

We shall see...

Here's a peek at my chart (it is off by one day... CD 1 is actually CD 2 - I'm just too dumb to figure out how to fix it ).

zak, I wouldn't be shocked if FF changed your crosshairs to CD16. I agree, it looks like that is when you O'd. but they only gave you dotted crosshairs which means they know it might be wrong.

Good luck in the 2WW, we could use more company over there

Sure thing, they threw me the first time too! Dotten means that there are mixed signals about the O date (not everything indicates O) like either your CM is off, CP, OPK etc. If they give you solid crosshairs that means that all signs point to O.

Welcome. HeatherB! And good luck ttc!

Trying to upload my TCOYF software chart, but it's not working . . . hmmm . . .

12dpo, my temp went up another .2 this morning and TCOYF finally recognized the triphasic pattern. They recommended a hpt but thanks to my impulsiveness and impatience I'm all OUT. AF is due tomorrow, so we'll see. I'm hoping for another high temp in the a.m. and NO AF - although I have to get up at least 2 hours earlier than I normally do, so I don't know how (or if) that'll affect my temp.

Back to trying to upload my chart . . .

: Are you going to test tomorrow?:

Yogachick-I'll look into FF, does it cost anything? I don't temp, I just do cm so I don't think it would work too well for me. Sorry!!


Well I decided not to test. I had EWCM the last 2 days so maybe THIS is ovulation! I don't know what's going on this month! I might do an OPK today and see if that says anything, otherwise I'll just keep waiting! Oh and the feeling of being pregnant has kind of passed so I don't know what that was.

OK, couldn't upload my TCOYF chart, so I made a Fertility Friend one, link in my siggy.

sarahn, I'll test if AF doesn't show up!

Hello TTC Mommies!!! I have been M.I.A. for a little while trying to deal with the BFN I got on Thanksgiving. It hit me that hard. I was in a slump and was sad. :

It's now CD 36 and no AF. I'm crampy and have had an increase in appetite. I'm not charting temps so I don't know if I'm pg or getting AF

I'm so frustrated with this cycle! I just want it to be over with so I can have a clean slate. I want to be pg so badly but I don't know if I can test again or if it will just be another BFN. I don't know if I can take another BFN right now.

I'm so sorry that I haven't kept up with everyone. I hope you're all doing well. Welcome aboard to the newbies and here's some for everyone. I hope you all have good luck in December!!!

LOL Sarahn, no worries I just love stalking charts . But yes, FF is completely free for their basic programming which is all you really need IMHO. They give you the delux version for about a month free and then you have the option of a pretty cheap subscription cost or using the free software.

I would still recommend using it just to track the days of your cycle and CM. Plus if you use OPK you can put that in as well.

Dantesmama, off to check out your chart! Okay, I'm back and that is some pretty chart lady, great stalking material.

Aw Erin I'm sorry. It seems like a lot of girls are having the same issue with their cycles this month. Wonder what is up with that?

sooooooooooooooooooo when do i test again -- wait till cd 39?? or past cd 39?

I don't chart -- i know i need to -- i just got in the mail the 30 o tests i ordered --the idea being i'd test every day this new cycle to be sure i am ing at all -- buttt till AF starts I can't do anything......

Aimee, I vote for Cd39 or 40 if you can hold off that long! But my alterior motive is that is when I would be testing too.

On another note I am having BAD cramps and I know that doesn't mean that AF is for sure on her way but still, it is making me worry...

aimee: fertility friend has a charting course that is fairly informative. I went through the same thing you did my first pp cycle. It ended up being 47 days, and i have no idea if i o'd. I hope that isn't the case for you!

Carrie, come on already! TEST! You're making me crazy! (the new thread is up btw)

thank you rachel for starting the new thread.

erinluvsken: sorry about the nasty bfn on thanksgiving. That happened to me a few times when ttc dd, and it's awful.

cd 8 (i think) so just waiting to o!

Thanks Yogachick!!!! You're a sweetie!

Aimee: I'm so sorry you're in the same situation. It's crappy enough being here alone. I don't wish this on anyone, but it is nice to know that you understand where I'm coming from! to you!!! I'm so sorry for your 2 BFN's!!!

I'm clueless about your testing question. I have 2 tests left and I'm afraid to waste them but I want to test too! I'm not sure when I should. I tested on Thanksgiving and that was the last one.

Does anyone have any advice for me and Aimee?

Ack, Jill I CAN'T. I am just dang scared that it will be a BFN. Plus with Landon I didn't get a BFP until I was like 14-15 DPO (estimated O date) and even then it was a LIGHT line. I only have two $Tree tests left under the sink. Okay hmm, we did just get paid today, and I do have to go get lunch and promised that I would walk with a friend from work to check out boots at one store. There IS a CVS right there, so I COULD stop and get one for lunch.

Would it work though if I pee now (cause I really need to ) and then drink and not pee for another few hours before I test? Should I go now, pretend that I don't have to pee/risk peeing on myself and see if I can hold it until we get back 9like 1 hr). Oh the agony
