Michelle and I will send some positive reiki energy your way.

well ladies it is 5:30 am here in Vermont I can't seem to sleep past 5:30 at all : my temp has been the highest yet 98.4 this a.m. I have a little lower backache but I am not sure if I "really" have any symptoms or if it is all mind created.

How does my chart look so far?

OK, seeing as we're on the subject of doing things differently: should we be doing something other than bd-ing whenever we collectively feel horny? We both have fairly high sex drives so it's fairly often- is this a bad thing?
(I'm turning bright purple with embarrassment just typing this, btw.)
I think as long as your partner has normal sperm counts - doing it when and as often as you like is no problem. I believe some will recommend just DTD every other day though, to ensure an appropriate amount of build up. Ahem.

From what little I have read, you should not drink RRL once you have confirmed your PG. It's purpose is to strengthen the uterine muscles and in doing so, can cause contractions, and I suppose theoretically, miscarriages. I do remember reading someone's birth story on here though, who drank a lot of RRL from 2nd tri on, and she delivered all three of her children somewhere between weeks 37 and 38 - so I guess it can really work!

Crystal, that's what I plan on doing. I figure it can't be doing me a whole world of good to be stopping and starting something every two to three weeks. But as soon as that shows up, I'll be discontinuing use!

My temp went up a bit today - but I took it an hour later than normal. I'm still not 100% convinced I've even O'd this cycle...

Woke up super early this morning and poas. Got a BFP, tested again a couple hours later and got another BFP. Even though I have been 'feeling pregnant' I tried to tell myself it would be negative because it was my first month off bc. I even have a basal thermometer showing up in Monday's mail and just finished reading TCoYF Thursday!

Congrats!!

Hubby and I had date night last night.. dropped the kids off at my mom's went to dinner and back home for some "dessert"

woke up this morning with a uti : haven't had one of those in years!
I am so good about getting up and making sure I pee and clean up too.. guess the last couple days my body wasn't used to it. *sigh* But I got my OPK yesterday and DH thought they were pregnancy tests and asked how many kids we were having.. LOL.. I explained what they were and how I am peeing on 2x a day starting today.. lol.. told him it gives us a better window and his response was just to have sex everyday.. that should cover it..

It's hard to tell this early, but it's a good sign that it's up. I'll keep my fingers crossed for your temp staying up, up, up! :

In general, it seems as though the only real temperature indicators are the implantation dip and the temp consistently staying up past 10-12 days, depending on average LP. I obsessively searched others' charts (preg and non-preg) last cycle and this seemed to be true, but that's just based on my looking, not any reading of research. Does anyone else have other opinions/information about this?

I did test this morning. bfn I peed at 2 and then again at 6 do you think 4 hours was enough time to do a test?
Nothing else has changed except now Ovusoft projects I will start tomorrow. I amstarting to hate that software.

I will wait for af and if she is late I have a digital I can use.

Massagin' -- your temps are looking great. 12 dpo is still a bit early! Hope those temps stay up and you get your bfp in the next few days. I've never used ovusoft, is it better/different than FF?

I'm still waiting to O. If my pattern is the same as it was a year ago, it should happen in 4 or 5 days, but I've been having O symptoms today and the last few days, so we are trying to cover all bases. I'm so glad I am temping (almost didn't) so I can figure all this crap out. I kind of hope I am Oing so I can be in the 2ww instead of the boring lead up.

Ooh top of the page

smokeylo I hope that is it. I liked Ovusoft at first but now I am not so sure. I seem to be going with FF more. Actually they were usually only one day apart on my O day except for this month. I think ovusoft predicted af because I put in the bfn. Who knows.

Ok, girls, I definitely need your help here!! I think I just got my BFP!!!! It's VERY VERY faint, but it's blue and DEFINITELY showed up within 2 minutes! AND, not only was it not FMU, it was 930pm after only holding it for 30min urine!! I am in complete denial right now! I am not telling ANYONE IRL til it's glaring at me! I guess this is what happens when you stop obsessing

Oh, Fishie! : That looks like a BFP to me!

ETA: A question for you ladies. I'm having some symptoms. I'm ?dpo (5-8ish, my charting isn't good yet). I've had *mucho* sticky (not ew) CM for days, much more than normal. I've been temping for a few days, and this morning my temp dropped a bunch. I also had a very brief spot of belly pain, not quite like a cramp, more internal than that. Or something. Is extra CM an early pregnancy sign? How long do implantation pains last usually? I don't really think I'm pregnant this cycle, but maybe...

Okay, I'm on CD 38 and I thought so did FF that I o'ed on cd 24. Based on that I used progestoren cream 2 times a day from 3 dop to 11 dpo! Then I stopped using it. Now, I'm on 15 dpo and no sign of AF! Isn't that af supposed to show up once someone stops using the cream????

To make matters even further confusing I'd cramps pretty much all the time this cycle but after stopping the cream I don't have any cramps!

Yesterday I'd tons of creamy cm, and just in case I got my husband! I did a cheap opk test it was negative.

And then, I've started to use fertility monitor again just to check what the heck it thinks, and on 9 dpo it gave me a "low" reading. BTW, monitor thinks I'm on my 2nd cycle and today it's cd 12, even though I'm still on my previous cycle cd 38, okay just to add to my confusion a little bit more today it gave me "high" read! WTF?

Fwiw, if I check on FF advance method to detect ovulation on my chart I longer get O date, just nice!

Can someone please give me some opinion on what do you think this nonsense is? Please!
