Can I join?

I'm.....new, but I'm waiting to know!

Based on all signs and bd-ing, I need to wait til the 12th or so to test!

And, if AF comes, I'll be charting!

*good vibes to all!*

Is paying for the vip on ff worth it? I'm tempted to do so but what if I get knocked up before I'm done with what I paid for? I know it can be used for pregnancy tracking or used latter when ttc again, but does the vip things really make a difference in how it is used? I just don't like spending money. Thats my problem.

And another question... How many days before af is to show does your temp usually drop?

Sorry, but I don't know missann!

Thanks folaboye....

I hope!

I had the EWCM, and all, and maybe some symptoms (crampy, more sense of smell, extra hungry)...but I think I could drive myself nutso thinking about it!

Gah, 5 more days!

AF is showing no signs of coming to visit me. Normally, that would be a good thing, but I really need her to show just so I can get this cycle over with!
massaginmommy's Avatar massaginmommy 07:57 PM 02-06-2007
MissAnn mine usually drops on the day af arrives. Although there have been cycles where is was on a downhillslide and then af showed.
FiberLover's Avatar FiberLover 08:06 PM 02-06-2007
*crosses fingers for AF for Nicole!*
mommy-X-2's Avatar mommy-X-2 10:04 PM 02-06-2007
Thank you ladies. So Things I did differently this month:

I drank green tea every day from the end of AF until about 4 or 5 dpo.

I laid on my back for 30 to 45 minutes after every time we DTD

We DTD every other day or every two days.

And the one that Im sure did it for me.....I started excersicing and dieting. I lost 5 lbs and 1 pant size, just to gain it back and more.....but its ok if it means a happy healthy baby.

missannthorpe: I love the vip features for ff. I paid 45 bucks for a LIFETIME membership back in dec 04 though. I don't think it's really worth it for only a year. Just my two cents.

So i think i'll ask you to move me tomorrow. Cp dropped back to low, so i'm positive i o'd. Now to see if i can get pg two months in a row.... :

ya i lucked out and got in on that deal before ff closed down the forums to the public and changed a bunch of other stuff.

Congrats Stacy (even though I already talked to you on the phone)...: that this one is VERY sticky!!!!

Can I please be removed from the list? I realized today that I just can't do it right now....I'm sure I will do plenty of lurking, but I just can't.
jillybeans's Avatar jillybeans 02:10 AM 02-07-2007
fishie. A lot of people are reaching that point right now. Be kind to yourself.
Montanamarvel's Avatar Montanamarvel 07:03 AM 02-07-2007
Congratulations Stacy! That is amazing!

Welcome fiberlover! Good luck waiting to test until the 12th!

Jilly-you can (and WILL) get pregnant two months in a row. I will be crossing my fingers for you.

Fola-your chart, with its restored crosshairs, looks great! Do you normally spot in the middle of your cycle? I will be stalking you!

I am 9dpo and feeling very, very regular.Maybe even more regular than normal (could that be a sign? Just kidding). POAS saturday anyone? Really when I pee over here it is more like POAS Friday night for most of you guys.

Jezzy-any luck with your microscope yet?

Yep wanna see? The microscope has a digi cam. I think I got a good deal. This all cost less than a real saliva microscope I hope that my temp goes up tomorrow! Would you call this a full fern? I found out the trick today, yesterday I didn't use enough saliva!

massaginmommy's Avatar massaginmommy 01:27 PM 02-07-2007
Yes, I call that a full fern. But sometimes it is even more fuzzy fern. According to my little miniscule instructions there is *no fern* which is obvious, *partial fern* which I haven't figured out yet but I think it shows some ferns and some blobs and *Full fern* which is only ferns on the slide.
HTH
stellimamo's Avatar stellimamo 02:22 PM 02-07-2007
Well I finally got my cross hairs.. at 7 dpo! Please move me to waiting to know.
FiberLover's Avatar FiberLover 02:29 PM 02-07-2007
Wooohoo stellimamo! I'll wait with you!

Jezzy, what are those "fern" pics of?

Fishie, hugs! You need to do what's right for your life.

As far as waiting til the 12th, DH and I decided we'll POAS sometime this weekend just for fun, so montanamarvel, I'll do it with you!

Congrats Stacy!
jillybeans's Avatar jillybeans 03:35 PM 02-07-2007
jezzy: definite full ferns. Get busy! When i see partial ferns there will be little spots mixed in with the ferns.

montanamarvel: thanks!

can i please me moved to waiting to know? no crosshairs till tomorrow, but it's pretty clear i o'd.
Jezzy's Avatar Jezzy 04:36 PM 02-07-2007
FiberLover Those are ferns of my saliva. When you get ferns like that it means that you will ovulate soon. Pretty cool, this is the first time that I have used a microscope. There are more experienced microcope "users" here if you have any questions.

Phewww I am really dizzy this evening. And a little queezy and have really a bad pulling feeling in my back, like AF I hope that has something to do with O! Have a headache too and O pains for 3 days now. This morning I noticed a little spotting, not much. (never had that before but never looked for it either!) I really hope that I O'd today : I don't know if dh is going to be up to it tonight after soccer training :

Very cool!

I had NO IDEA!

And, I just happen to have a microscope on my desk here at work...I'll try this next cycle if it's necessary!

How do you prep the saliva for viewing?
Jezzy's Avatar Jezzy 04:50 PM 02-07-2007
It took me a few tries so I don't know how long I have had ferns. I gathered saliva from under the tounge, I used a bit more this time and put it on the slide. Then you let it dry. Someone here has a good link for you, or you can google it. Here is a link that I found there are many more. http://www.questproductsinc.com/ovulationscope/faq.cfm

Hey MissAnn! I just now bought a 90 day subscription to FF for $16.95. I don't like to spend money either. I'm always looking for a deal or a consignment shop or something. I figure that if I get pregnant before the time is up, I'll just transfer it to the pregnancy page. I actually want that to happen though. I feel that it would be worth the money to get pregnant. I like the different features that are available and that I can play with the chart and get advice on how our BDing was, whether the database determines whether I o or not and things like that. I guess you save more money with the one year subscription, but I'm not counting on being with them for a year. Also, to answer your last question, my temperature usually falls on the day AF shows or the day before sometimes. When my temp crashes, AF starts that morning.
