Will you add me to success stories? I realize I had a success story in September, but we lost our May babe... praying this one stays put!

Praying for each of you.

Thanks, Aimee.

Well, we lost a babe in September, so we tried Oct, Nov, Dec and Jan... so four cycles.

I'm 11DPO today, I ovulated on CD20 (the same thing happened with our 22mo son).

Yeah, like 9 months long Who knows? I am so sick of trying to read into this. I told my husband I wish there were a little chip that could be implanted that monitored your hormonal activity, temps, etc. so you always know what's going on. Yes, I am insane! :

Yay Zak!!!!! Fantastic news!!!!

how long have your PP AFs been back

they can start and stop for a while, and take a while to "get normal" (or around here -- anywehre close to normal)..............for example the frist 6 month (5 months?) I had AF back she came every two weeks -- like clock work. My little sister had her every 3 months 3 times before things got back on track............

: if you don't have a set of parents right now anyway -- maybe it is a good time to just let your body "get back on track" with out worrying tooooo much??????? and without jumping to wean just yet? :

Hi everyone.....I am new to this board....we have been TTC for 3 months this is our 4th month. I have one ds who is almost 20 months old and still nurses quite a bit. I know I am ovulating and last month I am pretty sure I had a chemical pregnancy....so I know my body can do it!!

I am not charting this month but I know I o'ed on the 5th so tomorrow I will be 10dpo tomorrow. Not feeling pregnant really and not very positive for the month, but I am still hoping!! Hoping to wait until Sunday to test since AF will technically be due Monday....if I have no signs of AF coming.....

I hope this will make my TTC journey a bit more bearable....I just never thought it would this crazy lol.

Hi All,

Thanks for the welcome everyone!

Angela - Congrats!!! sending lots of sticky vibes your way!!


sarahn4639 - waiting to catch the first egg is great, thanks. I have been trying to chart, but with ds2 in the bed I never remember to temp. I have had signs of my body gearing up to O, but I don't think it has actually reached that stage yet.

Sure a chemical pregnancy is basically like a very early miscarriage, it's pretty common, and most who have one don't even know they have had one. Most people who know are those TTC who test early and get a positive and then one day don't and end up having a miscarriage....I had a little bit of heavier period and it was a couple days late besides getting to BFP then the next day nothing.....hope that helps explain it a little bit.

Our kiddos are close in age.....I think my ds is ready for a brother or sister, he needs someone besides Mommy to play with!! Good luck to you!!

Hi all,

I'm listed as waiting to be ready AND 2ww. The latter is incorrect.

I think I am about to O (this is CD29) and DH is DYING for another baby. So maybe we'll go for it. I'm just not sure yet. I kind of wanted to wait until I was lusting after newborns in the street, but that hasn't happened yet and I don't wait my kids to be more than 3 years apart.

However, we're going away for a 4 week holiday starting next week, and I'm not so sure that I'd want to be in early pregnancy during that time. So maybe we'll wait. But with 45ish day cycles, that doesn't leave me with a ton of opportunities to conceive.

Anyway, I'll let you know if anything changes, but for now, please leave me in the waiting to be ready category and remove me from 2ww.

Sarah

Finally started spotting this morning.... CD 34 so this is still a long cycle. My LP was about 9 days after a +opk on CD 24, so not THAT bad, if I could just add 3-4 days that would be great.

I'm ready to go with this next cycle, but I doubt that after this funky one the next one is going to be good. I will be happy enough just to see an earlier O and a longer LP, even by just one day - at least that would mean I'm moving in the right direction! Since we don't go for these late eggs, I am dying to actually be officially "trying" and stressing out in the 2ww with ya'll

I'll be starting the B6 today!

It looks like AF will be here today. My temp plunged this morning

Sarah, please move me to TAKING A BREAK
I think I need a break for a while. I'm tired, and need to focus on balancing my life and not on ttc.

Good luck to everyone

I don't know -- i jsut feel good

Sarah --please move to to 2WW -- now to put it out of my mind till March 1.

do any of you find yourself thinking abouthow you'll do this or that with anew baby around ----- i was rocking DS down to nap thinking "humm about month 4 of pg i want to start laying down to nurse, and lay down together to sleep, not rocking... that way when the baby is here we can all lay down and it won't be a change for Theo..."

So guess what ladies the last couple days DH has been hinting to me that he wanted to have another baby of his own. He said that he has been thinking about this for a while and after everything happened with my surro family He said that it made him really think about having another one of our own so after discussing this for a few days we decided that we will TTC our own little one instead of trying to find a new surro family.

Well anyway with that said is there a way I can change my name?

So anyway today I woke up went to the bathroom and had signs of Ovulation but I don't know so WE did the BD and will do it again

According to the calculators, if I really had a period then I should have ovulated by now. If I don't get a period by the 1st, I'll POS.

Hi again ladies, I need to check in here more often so I can get to know you all!

zak, congratulations on your BFP!! Praying for a sticky bean!!

Can you ladies look at my chart? I'm pretty sure this spotting is going to be AF by the end of the day... but do you think I O'ed where ovusoft says I did (the calculation is based on temps alone)... with my temps plummeting the way they have, this has to be AF. My last LP was 4 days so if this one was 7, I will be thrilled nonetheless cause at least I'm headed in the right direction.
