Name: Ashley
Date: 7/30/07
Where are you at in your cycle: CD9
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply: still spotting from my saline-infused ultrasound
Testing: I'm gonna start OPKs probably tomorrow
Thoughts: Well, the game is on. I'm undergoing testing for recurrent losses, and all seems to be normal. I had the world's most painful saline ultrasound last week, and I won't be doing that again. Because I'm on progesterone, I have to start using OPKs this month. I didn't want to be this involved, but it seems I have little choice.

At least this week I realized how far I'm willing to go with possible infertility treatment (the answer, not much). So, we know that much so far.

Name: Margie
Date: July 30
Where are you at in your cycle: CD 10
Appointments: I have a foot bath detox on Wed.
Symptoms if they apply: I've had creamy CF for about 2 days
Testing: I've limiting myself to 3 OPK's this month

Thoughts: I had a longer period than usual...but don't think it means a whole lot. This is our first month TTC after our m/c, so I'm happy to feel "normal" again. I feel like I'm moving out of the mourning stage.

Where are you at in your cycle: CD 14, 0 DPO
Appointments: IUI, bloodwork, and ultrasound this morning, no more for two weeks.
Symptoms if they apply: None, I felt a little bit pre-O bloaty heavy ovaries yesterday, like I was ovulating, but I knew that the HCG trigger shot I had yesterday morning wouldn't make me ovulate until tonight. This morning's ultrasound showed that I Oed likely late last night. Bah.
Testing: August 14, blood test. I'm sure I'll be peeing on a stick by the 13th though. . .
Thoughts: This high-tech stuff is for the birds. I'm a tad bummed that I missed out on two inseminations, but my timing was still good, just not optimal. My sperm counts were excellent - over 21 million. Woot!

Where are you at in your cycle: CD 18
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply: pre-o cramping, EW and Watery CM, irritability
Testing: began OPKs this weekend
Thoughts: Not sure what to think. I just want to be post-o so I don't have to worry about OPKs, CM, cervical position, BD timing, etc. any more. This is always the worst week of my cycle for me.

This seems WAY early for you to have o'ed. My temp was up this morning too and this would be the absolute earliest o for me that I am ever aware of. I think my high temp was a fluke so tomorrow shall tell. Any chance it was just hotter in your bedroom last night?

Yea, I was actually looking at your chart too, I know you O late like I do...I dont think it was hotter in the bedroom last night, but Im hoping it was just a normal temp flux, and not O, I just feel like I dont quite know what to expect because if trying the vitex this month!
If you actually did O yesterday...did you have good timing?

Looks like your temp went down this morning I was eager to sign on and check it out this morning. My temp went down a tiny but too (Like .01) but not enough to be sure I didn't o. I was awake at 4:45 having to pee and then tossed and turned for awhile before falling back asleep so when I temped at 6:00 it wasn't after 3 hours of consecutive sleep...not sure what effect that may have on my temp. I am still having horrible o-cramps and many other o symptoms so I don't think I o'ed but I could be wrong. : If I did o I missed the surge with my OPKs too....If I o'ed on Sunday (CD17) we BDed Saturday (CD16) morning so my timing isn't ideal but could be worse. This would be the earliest o ever for me so if this is a start of earlier o's I will not complain at all. Again - for the record - I hate o-week.

Im not fond of this time either, I just wish it was over and I could relax! Yup, my temps went down, I dont think I Oed, thank goodness! I dont know about you...you seem to always have a rather gradual shift at O, not a huge jump. I think its possable you Oed, but I guess youll just have to wait for a few more tepms. I have heard of people getting O pains after O. If you did O on 17, BDing the day before is great timing! Heres to hoping!!

Me too! And for me, it's been going on for THREE weeks. I'm still not sure I O'd so I'm trying to bd every other day. But seriously - bd every other day for three weeks is getting to be too much. I'm considering writing off this cycle and trying again next cycle, whenever it might start.

Or, who knows, maybe FF is right and my period will be here in a few days. *shrug*

I can't imagine BDing every other day for three weeks! It is all I can do to get DH and I BDing a couple times during my fertile days. Our week day schedules just do not sync up very well most days so we need to almost 'schedule' BDing on week days...which is less than romantic. If I could only o on a Sunday evening, we would be much better off!

wouldn't it be great if your body actually listened to you?

Or we could just push a button when we wanted to ovulate....

Hopenaprayr -

I assumed you're TTC #1 so I put you in that section. If you want me to include your age or chart let me know!

And Sunshine/oceane: I think if we could just all ovulate on demand, we wouldn't need a TTC board! It makes me feel so much better that other people are as confused as I am about my chart (I don't know if you noticed the poll but people were split 50/50 as to whether or not they thought I had ovulated. Not that that helps me know, but at least I'm not crazy in my obsession about it!)
