Please move me to WAITING TO KNOW. Thank you!

MamaMerle... I was sad to read that you were leaving us. I'm glad you changed your mind!!! I hope you get that BFP very soon!!!

JustVanessa... My BBT only had directions for oral temping. I normally temp at my 6-8am roll-over, then go back to sleep, so I do prefer oral. By the time I get the thermometer situated rectally, I'll be wide awake and have trouble going back to sleep! LOL
So, I guess I'll stick with my screwy oral temps.

Heather080407... Creamy in non-fertile CM. Watch for the EggWhite CM, that's the fertile stuff!

AmyDoula... I will most likely buy a test on the 9th, though I might be able to hold off until the 10th. I can't hold my urine though, so I have to test with FMU.

I hope we can both get our BFP's and share the next 9 months comparing symptoms!!

QuarterAlien... Just wishing you a hippity hoppity cycle! (In other words, that you breed as easily as a rabbit) :

Mchalehm... Welcome! I hope you lay an attractive egg!!!! (Attractive to sperm, that is)

Jennifer3141... Thank you for the supportive words!!

I hope you're eggy is growing very attached to you!

MamaZee... I hope you had a marvelous "O" celebration with your DH!!!

EmptyTank2000... Remember my motto for bad cycles? You won't be as upset by a BFN, but, you still get to obsess over possible symptoms!! (Good Luck)

Zyla... I'm very, very sorry. Have you thought of using progesterone cream? I've heard it can help with miscarriages. I'm using for the first time this cycle because of my Chemical Pregnancies.

JenniePaige... Hmm, is AF still MIA??? I hope!!!

MamaDee4... Nope, no, uh uh, you're not allowed to give up so early!!! You still have a chance!!!

JohnsCelticQueen... You did a super job as Thread Mistress!!

Don't forget to sign back up for next week... Please?
I hope you will still do so, even after that BFP you should be getting!!!

Hey, you're doing this week's thread too? I hope this doesn't mean I'll have to test early to have you as the lucky threadmistress?

DoulaSarah... The dirty hag!! Sorry.

SweetIrishCT... Wahoo! See, I knew you had more time!!! I hope those sperm flew up those tubes!!!

Francesca... Grow sweet little one. Oh, hi Francesca, I was just talking to your tummy!

DesiLou... I'm glad your going to a doc... I am sure they will find you just need some simple lil nudge! Good luck!!!

Christy1980... Welcome! I hope the Clomid is exactly what your eggs needed!! Best Wishes!

Carlin... Welcome! I hope your first week here is also your last!!!

Aly22681... I hope the Clomid is exactly what your lil eggies needed to come out from hiding!

AAM... Nothing new here, just wanted to say hi to everyone!

Have a Fertile Day!

43 w/Emphysema - TTC from 2005 - 2013. 2 miscarriages in 2008. Good things do not come to those who wait.

It would certainly be easier. Rabbits are induced ovulators, meaning they only ovulate when they DTD. Same with cats. Explains a few things, doesn't it? I'm kind of glad humans aren't like that though!

AF is due for me on the Tuesday of next week, maybe I'll buy a test early too, then if she doesn't show I'll have it for Wednesday or later on Tuesday if I'm getting antsy It's very hard for me to get my hopes up after how long it took to conceive my son.....so we'll just see. Glad you are holding up well. I HATE the TWW, I'm much happier during the waiting to O, at least there is fun BD'ing to think about/plan.

Thank you Stevi. Yes, it is still MIA. I'll give it till Tuesday and try to remember that morning to POAS. I'm starting to think well, maybe. But really no syptoms other then being dizzy. I hope you get a BFP this month. How long do you need to wait?

Thank you for the threadkeeper cudos. I like being threadkeep, it keeps my mind busy and helps me obsess less. I got a BFN this morning but AF hasn't showed either, so either I o'ed later than I though or I haven't implated yet. I'm hoping I don't have another wacky cycle like last cycle. : My cycles were regular until we started ttc.

Good luck and to all those in the 2ww and to those who AF found.

I didn't get a chance to sign up for threadkeeper for next week but I'll sure drop in and spread around some of the magic water and baby dust.

Changes made to here.

Hi all, I would like to introduce myself here! My son is 27 months and I finally think I am ready for another one. Plus I will be done with school in March so I feel like the timing would be great if I could get pregnant NOW! But after reading many threads here, I see that it may not be that easy. Last month we sort of tried, but not really. This month we tried lots so hopefully our chances are better. I"m very new to this and am reading up as much as I can. I'm definitely starting to obsess. So anyway if you could put me on the waiting to know that would be great. I can POAS prob next week at the earliest. That would be about 7-10 dpo. (I"m trying to get the hang of these acronyms). Much to everyone!

I use the Walgreens brand BBT. It stores the last few temps in it, so I don't have to chart it right away (i.e. I roll over and go back to sleep if I want).

How much variation are you getting? You should expect to get a different number every time, but how much difference you get is more important. You might prefer one of the BBTs that only reads to the tens place (e.g. 98.6) instead of the Walgreens one which goes to the hundredths place (e.g. 98.62). You don't need it to be that exact, and it will look more stable when you chart it.

TCOYF recommended the "BD" brand BBT, which is a tens place one.

After the great high temps I had last week, I dropped friday and didn't go back up again. I tested this morning at 12dpo and had a BFN, snowy white, not even a hint of a line. I'm wondering if the high temps mean it just didn't implant this month. I still have a few days before AF arrives, but my hopes aren't high.

Next month DH has an 8 day block home which I *think* will be during my O time :

I just popped in to update my O status. I'll still lurk, but won't be on everyday. Of course, that is easier said than done (especially since I'm posting this!) OK... back to lurking.

Right now I'm trying to figure out what to do with my in-laws, who are visiting during my entire fertile week! Do you think it would be rude to say, "Excuse me, but could you go somewhere else for half an hour, as I am possibly fertile today and self-conscious about having sex with you in the house?" I guess that wouldn't work too well with our plan to keep our TTC under wraps.

My parents are coming on Wednesday for 5 days. I expect to be fertile this weekend. We'll just have to be subtle and get them involved with the kids or something, then Good luck to both of us!
