Congratulations to AnneCordelia and 2happymommas! I'm so excited for you both. There seem to be a lot of BFPs this month - which is always nice to see.

JunebugsMom - waiting 38 days for AF would be so frustrating esp. with the BFNs thrown in. Did anything happen earlier in the month that stressed you out that could have delayed O for you?

I think I Oed on Tuesday but I need one more day of higher temps to prove it. I tried OPKs this month but they just don't work for me because I absolutely cannot hold it for 3 hours. So the most I ever got was a line that was quite a bit lighter then the control line and I got that for like 3 days straight.

Wife to my endlessly patient DH -SAHM to my DS 7/2/08 - a little shocked to be expecting - due 4/10/10

Hey ladies help me out

Is 5dpo too early for implantation? Look at my chart : I had a big dip but I thought implantation was usually 7-10dpo.
What to y'all think?

2happymamas & Emily ~ Congratulations!!

JunebugsMom ~ I'm sorry. I know how frustrating it can be to have off-kilter cycles.

JustVanessa ~ Oooh! Good luck Implantation, as I understand it, can occur anywhere from 5dpo to as late as 12dpo, but mostly it's around 7-9dpo.

Amydoula ~ I'm sorry

for those in need, and lots of for all.

Seems silly now that I type it, but when I was waiting until I actually had to get up, I had so many sleep disturbances in the hour prior to waking, (ds waking up early, dh making more noise than usual when he got up...) my temps were wacky. Also, since the alarm was set only for that purpose, I wouldn't forget and get up to do something else first. Hope you find a system that works for you!

I'm still waiting to know. Although I have been ravenous this last week and feeling weird sensations in my uterus region. I feel I may be analyzing things a little too much and I'm trying to just stay neutral. I will probably test Tuesday at the earliest.

BriAtkinson I don't bother with OPKs, because I can't hold it that long either. I'd cause a flood in the house.

JustVanessa I don't think it's too early for implant. That is one beautiful dip though!

Zyla Thanks for the hugs. I needed them; my temp went down a little this morning.

Nimbus That is an excellent idea. I may have to try that.

Jennifer I'm afraid to ask which hoohoo it is.

codysmamma Just be warned- I'm dying to go back to school. I think my calling was to be a professional grad student. I tend to overanalyze the whole 2ww too.

It's Friday, so you ladies have a great one!

Congratulations 2happymamas & AnneCordelia. I hope you're starting a trend!

Pica Happy bd'ing

radiowave - : When are you testing?

I'm pretty sure I O'd today - just waiting for tomorrow's jump. If I did, I think we timed our bd'ing right and should have a pretty good chance.... We'll see. We're going to be out of town when I'll be 10 dpo and I've already packed my test in my toiletry bag so I'll be sure to have it with me. I'm being optimistic and planning ahead.

Back to cd 1 I go. AF showed up today as my temp drop yesterday predicted (though it came back up today . I'm sad that we missed the eggie this month but overjoyed that my cycle was under 40 day and that my LP seems to be consistant at 12 days. DP and I are going to be taking a break since he will be out of state for awhile trying to work things out with our youngest and I will be starting school on the 15th. I'll still be around charting and obsession.

to everyone and to those af found.

Changes made to here.

JCQ- That sucks, but I am glad your cycle is getting more regular.

My temp is up a little more today. 9dpo. My p is getting antsy about the waiting too. He switches every 10 mins. "Do you think you're pregnant?" "You aren't pregnant." I think he is excited but doesn't want to get his hopes too high.

Ooh, Vanessa, I hope this is it for you!

I'm getting annoyed because I'm on CD10 and my temps are All. Over. The. Place. I mean, it's ridiculous. Take a look:

http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/19992e

So far as I can tell there's nothing to cause it--I'm not sick, our house is the same temp, etc. I replaced my thermometer and used it for the first time today because I think maybe the problem was the battery. I bought the same brand but I know it might not be just the same...but at least I'll know the battery is okay!

My temps were like that before I O'ed too! What a PITA. They stabilized after O. Except for the dip on 5dpo. I can't stop looking at my chart. It looks very promising I think. Check it out, its in my siggy.
Edited to say if you view my chart and overlay it with your own you will see what I mean.

JohnsCelticQueen sorry AF found you this month, but it's seems hopeful that your lp is consistent. Maybe October will be your month!

JustVanessa Your chart looks really good. Are you testing tomorrow morning?

mchalehm It's frustrating when your temps are all over the map. I know what you mean about trying to keep things consistent. Maybe you just need a new thermometer entirely.

Our house is colder now that fall has hit and I talked my dh into waiting to use the little space heater in our bedroom until the end of this cycle. I didn't want artificially high temps to throw off my chart. (Oh, the things my dh does to keep me happy! )

My temp rose a little today, but not as much as I had hoped. However, even if I have the same temp Sunday and Monday, FF will peg my O at Friday. Anyone testing on the 15th?

I am not testing tomorrow. I am too cheap Tests are $12-$14 here and I don't want to spend the money with such a high chance of a negative. I am going to test on Tuesday I think. CD31 and 12dpo.....seems good. I work on Tuesday too so if it is negative I can keep my mind busy and if it is positive I can float on air all day at work. I just woke up from a nap! A freaking nap! I NEVER nap. I was up early this morning but not unusually so and I haven't done anything crazy today and I am not sick. So maybe it is beginning pregnancy symptoms. Other than that, no tender boobs, no sickness etc. I refuse to let myself imagine anything this cycle. It seems to difficult to make up a nap though Oh, and my p says my boobs look bigger but they seem the same to me. :

Thanks for the hugs. I'm actually doing good with AF being here, the only thing that is killing me is the cramps and headaches. Looking into Vitex to see if it will at least help with the PMS and cramps during AF.

I'm soooo sorry everyone! My computer crashed and being in little town south of nowhere it takes awhile to find someone to fix it. AF showed up so please move me to waiting to O As for tests....never again, really. I kept getting faint lines so i took a digital. Supposed to be a no brainer right? Not for me. I got a Big Fat Error. Yep. right where it is supposed to say "pregnant" or "not pregnant" i got a nice little "error".
So i yell from the bathroom "congrats honey, we're error!"
AF showed up a couple days later, one week late.

So here we go again.....It's great to be back online though!
