frog and turtle: I'm quite the lurker, but i will def. miss reading your posts! Best wishes at the new lilypad! maybe it will bring you just what you need.

everyone else: Can't have enough can you?

Question for you all: Does your cervix stay very tight and closed your whole lp? I guess i've never paid much attention all these months charting. But now i had the same lower temp and my cervix is just a tiny bit open. I'm guessing it may be af. Oh joy, a whopping 4 day lp. THAT will brighten the christmas spirit. How long is this damned vitex going to take to work?!

beckyphryPretty dip that you had yesterday :

Ok TMI WARNING
Since I have been charting, I also have been checking cm and cp. This morning it was very lotiony, like always for me after O. This evening I felt funny *down there* and decided to see what was going on. My cm is soooo thick that it looks like that paste that we used in kindergarten. I don't ever remember having that thick of cm. Anyone have an Idea what may be going on? It doesn't smell bad or anything, it is just sooooo thick. And there is a lot of it. Thank goodness that dh is sick and doesn't want anything to do with bd'ing I would be pretty embarrassed!

Well today is the day af is to show. She usually comes in the morning, but not to day. I tested Sunday and it was bfn. Today I'm not feeling anything remotely close to feeling like af or pregnancy! It is my first cycle off bc. I was using the ring and it made my last cycle start the day before I was to take it out, and that was 3 days early from when it normally started. So I'm going to try to give it till Wednesday to come (that is what day it normally started before bc). All I want to do lately is eat and I can't get rid of the thristies. Well got ds falling asleep in the sling... so I guess it is nap time. Good luck everyone.

Just wanted to let you know that I get CM like this every cycle for 2-3 days after O. I usually call it "sticky" in my chart even though I *think* FF defines it as creamy. If it is like mine, it will thin out after a couple of days and become more creamy (lotion-like) and then eventually "milky" (thinner creamy). I do believe it is normal. As long as it doesn't smell bad or itch or anything, I think you are fine.

Hi everyone

Bug did very well with her surgery--she was down and out for a week though--they always seem to take the wind right out of her sails. But she started back to school today. Her left ear looks AWESOME and her right ear will get checked out tomorrow. Thanks everyone for the good thoughts and prayers you sent our way

I am still just kinda hangin out, but I had a real TMI experiance just a few minutes ago. I am sitting on cd19, 3 dpo and I am spotting pretty heavy! Almost like I am starting my period. Went potty and there was all kinds of blood in the toilet (again TMI--sorry) and when I wiped. Hmmm.... I did take clomid for 2 cycles, am sitting out for 2-3 cycles... could it possibly be implantation--but at 3dpo??? if so, eggie had a booster pack on! LOL Or could it be 'leftovers' from the clomid? Could I be starting my period this early???? anyone have any thoughts? my chart is kinda sketchy this cycle--pretty much just marking down when dtd and a few temps...

Ok... back to the holiday grindstone!

Hi all... I've missed the thread, but I needed time to recover emotionally from my miscarriage before rejoining the ttc world.

So, we are supposed to be in our waiting cycle - after my next af we have the dr's blessing to start trying again (and hopefully not take 15 months to get pg again!). We started bding at 2 weeks post d&c. We used condoms (yuck) - the kind with the spermacide stuff (double yuck), but DH only put it on at the "end".

I wasn't expecting to O on time after a m/c, but all signs point to cd 14. Now I am a few days from when af will (supposedly) show up and I feel very similar to how I felt last cycle before getting my bfp. Could be leftover pg hormones causing my pms to feel like pg? But, I was assuming my hcg level has reached 0... I get tested every Monday, and the last two were 75 then 17. Seems like 5 more days would put me at 0.

I'm sure I am just being crazy - there is no way a sneaky little sperm could make it with spermacide, right? I guess I'll know tomorrow - they will be calling me with the results of the beta I had drawn today. If it is below 2, I will be done my weekling testing, and will know I'm not pg. If it is around where it was last week, they will be suspicious, I bet. And, if it goes up... I'd love to be pg already, but I'd definitely be scared of a repeat m/c.

No personals yet, accept for big hugs for Frog. i need to get caught up on the thread first.

zjande - It could be worse. In my ddc there is a girl preg with her 3rd child while I am still working on my second.

Today I've been on the phone a bunch and two people I haven't spoken to in a while asked if I was preg. When I said no both asked when I was going back to work. WTH is that. So if I'm not preg soon I should be going back to work or I'm not really doing anything. It made me feel crappy.

Oh well.

Good luck tomorrow to our testing club.

Frog: I will miss seeing your posts. Good luck with the foster parents training and the new house.
punquin: I'm glad that you've been healing and hope that you don't have to wait too long to get a very sticky little punquin seed growing.

Today I feel cramps on my left side (yesterday right side achiness), its like a travelling cramp going on. Still no spotting, still an elevated temp, but I know that a chart looks great until it stops looking great. Time will tell. So, as of this moment, I am still in for POATuesday.

I am so debating on whether or not to test tomorrow morning again after this morning's fiasco with what I think is now an evaporation line. The reason being is that I am still feeling cramps.

I don't understand how I can have cramps now for over 9 days since literally 2DPO. They feel like I am getting AF which isn't due till Friday. And last month I had them for about a week before AF was due and well, she came.

Since I get my beta results tomorrow, it seems silly for me to buy a peestick for poas Tuesday. Can I just pee on a popcicle stick and then post the results of my beta when they call me?

Off Topic - What is all this frosting business in peoples' sigs? :

I wondered too until I got a PM today. Apparently, people send you "you've been frosted" messages and you're supposed to send them to 3 people. I have decided not to do it because it's a bit cliquish and there will be some like me and you wondering what's going on and what it means.

I may or may not be out; my temps went completely wonky over the last two days and FF took away my crosshairs. I'd like to say that today's low temp was because there was frost on the ground this morning and my house is unheated, but it was actually just about as cold yesterday, when I had the super high temp.

I can't wait to see all the bfps tomorrow!

greengrey - No worries if you don't POAT tomorrow. It should be something you want to do, not something you are forced to do. Most of the people participating are POASaholics and would be peeing on sticks anyway. Making it a group activity just gives it a more supportive (at least of me) air (plus it keeps me from testing obsessively in the days before POAS day).

Oh the thing is I DO want to test but these cramps are making me skeptical in terms of wasting one. Which makes me so sad with Christmas right around the corner.

I'll decide after I see tomorrow mornings temps.

Either way I can't wait to see everyone's outcomes!!!!

PS - when is the official POAS day supposed to be in our cycles?

I've been frosted three times so far, which makes me feel loved , but I've had no time to do anything about it.

I'm wondering what morning will bring... some optimism, but also realism... Been feeling a little crampy for the last day or two, which I don't normally have even with AF. CP is firm and closed (at least I think it's closed for having given birth), which I've never really noticed before. Definitely different than mid-cycle, which makes me think I DID O. I'm also horridly tired, but it's possible that's circumstantial. Going with holiday prep!!

Need to go finish making gifts for DS's preschool party tomorrow! G'night!

please move me to WTF is going on with my body
CD 15 and I'm still having medium-heavy spotting :
I'm taking Vitex, but I don't think it's working ye. My hubby said if I'm still spotting on Friday, he thinks I should go on anyother month of bcp to try to restart everything. So I'm a little sad.
However, Monday night was the Christmas party for the Hotel that I work for, so it was a nice distraction. People finally went to bed around 2:30am, and I had to work the desk starting at 4am, so I got all of an hour sleep. But it was worth it!

to all, and Good Luck for everyone participating in POATuesday!!

I just broke down yesterday and visited the boards. I'd been trying not to obsess during my 2 ww.
I saw the POAS Tuesday and figured I may as well test.
!!!!!

I'm not quite sure what to do with myself.
I didn't tell dh.
This will be #3 for us and #2 is sick right now so I thought maybe I'd tell dh when the stress level is down a little.

I'm thrilled....
but holy moley... we need a new car and a new house and I'd better start saving and I have a big project that I'd better finish up and some trips to take and some quality time to spend with the two I have and some cleaning to do and.... and.... and.....

panicking!

good luck to everyone!
