Can I join in, I'm waiting to O, although I did get a pos OPK with this mornings fmu on FR, I don't trust it, b/c I'm on CD11 and I usually never o until at least CD16(with femara/clomid, much more irregular without)

CD19 here. 3 or 4 DPO (4 according to FF, 3 according to me and OPKs). Nothing exciting. Too early for symptoms, too late for any productive BDing. Gearing myself up to face the hell that is Target on a weekend during holiday shopping time. I hope everyone is having a happy and pleasant Sunday. Thanks for the new thread Willowsmom.

:fingers, Laurie. What there is to stalk is looking more and more promising, plus I just have this feeling.

Remember when we had to wait untuil was two weeks late before we could test?

I almost wish I hadn't found my stash of Dollar Tree tests, but am bound and determined not to use them until Xmas at the earliest. My temp started rising slightly today, but I expect to O either today, tomorrow, or the next day and just hope The Swim team, or at least one particular like swimmer with a fully functioning X chromosome, is able to hold out that long.

dd's best friend from San Francisco just went home today and I already miss her. She practicially lived with us when the girls were little and in a lot of ways feels like my "oldest child" and at 20, she may be the same age as many of you ladies here but she is no less of a miracle to me than she ever was or than any of our Maybe Babies already are.

Thank you for the new thread, Willowsmom; your posts are always such an inspiration to me.

Spider I hope your feeling is right. I honestly have been ready to hang it up for good lately. Maybe we will both get to be in the Sept DDC together that would be way too cool. I hope your swimmers are waiting at the egg gate with their catchers mits on.
I am actually glad I didn't temp this month. Although the wait is still difficult it isn't nearly as bad as when I can go stare at FF 50 times a day and hope it is going to tell me something magic.

HeatherB: You asked in the last thread when I plan to test. I have a bunch of Dollar Tree tests, so I figured I would test at 13 dpo and if that is BFN, then I will wait until that POASaturday (Dec 23). That is if I even last that long. I have a short luteal phase. What about you, when will you test?

Thanks for the new thread Willowsmom. And welcome AugustLia23 and amberbella. Much to all of us

I'm taking 800 mg vitex a day and am taking a small supp. of B6. 25 mg of B6 pre-o and 50 mg B6 post-o. Last month my luteal phase was 9 days and I only started the supps this month, so I don't even know if they will be helping yet. I did O 2 days early this cycle, so I'm hoping that means the supps are already helping. Yes, 13 dpo would be Dec 19.

Sounds good. Here's hoping your early O means a longer LP for you too.

We are in the TWW over here. It feels like we've already been waiting forever since we started our insems over a week ago. Oy!

But, DW felt O pains yesterday, which is fabulous!

We're wondering about things to do during the two week wait to stay healthy, calm, grow the possible babe, etc. She's taking vitamins, eating pineapple, trying to take it easy (with a 3yo!), drinking some pomegranate juice....what else is there?

thanks and be well all,
megin

Sabo, I am hoping to go for POASaturday this week. That will be about 10dpo for me, and in line with when I found out with my second DS (actually got a faint BFP at 9dpo!). If that's a BFN, then who knows! I'd probably try to hold out for a few more days after that. You know, as opposed to testing daily.

Hoping this is a great sign for you! Hopefully the sore throat will clear up soon. : I know it's just miserable! Have you googled for info on strep? Maybe try drjaygordon.com and see what he has to say (I read it recently). It could be strep, or it could be viral, and perhaps he'll have info to compare the two? I know someone does! Do you have plans to POAS, assuming AF remains away?

I got a Christmas card today. I thought it was from my Aunt Flo, but turns out it was from Aunt Connie, instead. So maybe Aunt Flo's card will come later in the week, and tell me AF is taking a vacation. I can hope, right?

:xfingers I'm really hoping this will be it. I wish I could send you some of the stash of dollar tree tests I didn't know I had so I still have them from the last cycle.

I think I can wait myself until is actually due this time around, but I've thought that before; kudos on your self control, Laurie, even though I know that feeling like crap from the sore throat must have something to do with it.

Please move me to waiting to know. I'm pretty sure I o'ed last sat/sun. I hope to post more this week than I did but it all depends on how long my ds is in the hospital and how much longer I get to stay at my mom's house (my mom's house is only a few minutes away from the hospital where mine is over 30 min.) I'm hoping that af give me a break and takes a long christmas vacation.
s to all those that found, she sure was pretty sneaky with a few of you guys it's not nice to tease like that around the holidays.

Got my crosshairs today on FF. Officially 3 DPO here. Finally, FF and I agree. I don't have much hope for this cycle, though, since dh was out of the country until O-date. But my test date is the 20th so if AF does come she'll be out of the way well before Christmas.

Fingers crossed, Laurie!

Does anyone use Instead Cups? I decided to try using them to keep the morning dose of progesterone suppositories up my, ahem, hoohaw.
So, this morning I put in the Prog. then I inserted an instead cup, according to the directions. HOwever, it feels like it hasn't flattened agains my cervix, but rather is still up-and-down, like a tampon would be, and I feel a lot of pressure. Did I do something wrong?

Thanks,
Charlotte

Hi guys. Af is due today but hasn't shown up to visit yet. I'm having conflicting symptoms but it's all hard to tell because I'm sick as a dog with a bad cold. All three of us have it. I hardly slept last night and I'm pretty sure I have a fever. I woke up kind of stopped up whereas usually I get really loose stools before AF. Plus I felt like barfing this AM but that could all be part of this wicked cold. I feel like I'm just sitting around waiting for her and I hope if she does come she comes soon so I won't be waiting anymore and I can take some cold med.

I did skim but don't have personals. Hugs to all. I'll be in touch.
