Feeling quite FF says I O´d on CD19, but I think I did on CD21, like 2 last cycles and according to OPK it would be too, like previous cycles. Anyway, if I O´d on CD21, yesterday I had a temp dip (6DPO) and today my temp was up and high (Look at my chart please)

And twice it has happened that I´ve been watching a movie and I´ve suddenly got really tired, eye lids dropping and it hasn´t even been that late yet. I don´t know if that is something. I never get tired like that, quite the opposite, I´ve been up until 2am etc lately. (maybe that´s it...)

One day my sense of smell was really strong, I could eg. smell DD´s dirty washable nappies really strongly, when normally I´m just so used to that smell I don´t really even smell it or at least I don´t mind it.

I was on such a bad mood today

NOT getting my hopes up though...

Celina That chart looks good. I also say it was CD21

Baker I'm sorry that you had a mc and you're back. I hope you get a fast BFP and it sticks. Oh, and I wanted to commend you for exclusive pumping for 20+ months! That is so amazing.

I will be back to update the list. Just wanted to catch up but dinner is cooking....

I'm on CD14. No clue what my temps are (not temping) and no EW. I had a bit two days ago though and we had a fun night...just in case. So just keeping it relaxed and fun so far.

Hm. So, I thought I O'd on the 5th. But turns out I had undeniable O symptoms (crampy on one side, LOTS of EWCM) yesterday. Later O wouldn't be completely abnormal this month as DS2 has been nursing like crazy since being sick.

So, that either means, my BDing on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th will result in no BFP or by Shettles Method should be a girl. :

Well things are CRAZY, just now, I mean JUST now I had a huge surge of EW mucus (took like 4 full wipes to clean it all up, TMI) but it has a slight tinge to it and a few streaks of blood. I am so confused. I am going to post around and see what others think. I have NO idea.:

Balker - today was likely your peak day - tinge with pink/red means ULTRA fertile usually. Hope you managed to DTD today!

Brooke . . . I am so sorry, mama. It just doesn't seem fair. I think I want you to be pg almost as much as I want ME to be. You have waited long enough. Sorry, I'm probably not helping. Just wanted to say I was thinking of you.

Not temping this month or really paying much attention. I just can't put myself through it again this month. Am hanging around here a bit to get excited for all the BFP mamas and mourn with those who have not been as fortunate yet. Just not saying much at this point - hope you understand.

Argh!!! Temp drop today I was sure I O'd on the CD 14 and had had 2-3 days of temp rises. Today it was back down to 96.56.: My breast are super tender and I still have EWCM so maybe I'm just O'ing late this cycle but I was so excited......Please take a look at my wonky chart and give me any insight if you can.

Really? I did not know that pink/red with lots of EW was a good thing:. AWESOME! We BDed last night and this morning just in case (not to mention having lots of great fluid makes for a good time.

HUGS also! I totally understand just going with the flow and taking a time out. Hopefully you will see a BFP before the year is out.

I was sooooo optimisitc after my last post (see post #10 in this thread). My temps went up very slightly from a stable 36.6C to a varied 36.7 and 36.8 (sorry I chart on paper so I can't share the chart). It stayed up from Nov 2 till today (Nov 9th). I wasn't sure if it was due to Day Light Savings or ovulation, but I though positive….

Well, today it fell back down to 36.6C, so it doesn't look like I’m pregnant, but there is still hope that I finally O'd. However, I still have creamy CF.

(Sigh) In a few days I should know if AF has finally arrived after her almost 3 year vacation.

DS has only nursed 5x in the last 24 hours (a record low) despite his cough/cold. Maybe he is on his way to full weaning or cutting back! Maybe this is the push I need to get my cycle going again.

(sigh) Back to lurking

question for all you charting mamas:

I'm not charting this time (did w/my first), just doing OPKs and paying attention generally. question is this: how do your OPKs (if you're doing them) match up with your chart? do you find the positive or almost positive OPK to be 1 day before O?

In my case, yes. In can happen that you'll get a positive OPK and not actually O, you just had a LH surge, but that's never personally happened to me.

I am sooooo excited! CD 1 for me today! although that means I only had a LP of 9 days. But it does mean I ovulated!!! Had to get out and wash the old diva cup today, it's been in storage since June. Had red spotting when I went to the bathroom this am, so I put it in. Been crampy the last 2 days, so I am sure this is it!!! YAY! Last period I had was June 10th! Please move me to Waiting to O!

Yes, OPKs will- and temping was for me with last baby!


Okay, BIG question: DID I O??????? Will someone pretty please look and lmk what you think! Did anyone temp prior to having their first PPAF? My normal pre-O temp is 97.4 and VERY consistent- but I didn't start temping this time until a week ago: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/sassyone

I totally *feel* like I O'd but maybe you can have a consistent temp rise & no O? Ugh I so don't like not knowing! My norm LP is 12 days & I guestimated on the O date (other chart is DS #2)

You can put me down as Waiting to O Guess I'm back to my 31 day cycles instead of the 37 of the past 2 months. I was too busy to obsess this month and I feel much happier. My 3 year old was sick all week so that took all my attention! So glad he is well now!!! Good luck to everybody. I'm not able to be on here much, but thinking of you all. I don't know if I'll ever get to leave this thread!
I thought DS might wean because he couldn't nurse while he was sick, but I have just as much milk as ever. He turned 3 on Wednesday!!!!!! He wants to type now: bbhjklpokjuydsaz
Ya'll take care!

Married to wonderful DH 10 yrs DS 9yrs self-weaned @ 3 1/2 yrs  TTC 3 yrs got preg 4 months after HSG with DS 4yrs self-weaned at 3 1/2 yrs  Hope to have more little ones but have secondary infertility issues so we'll just have to see what the future brings Enjoying homeschooling and farming

CD1 here today Please move me to waiting to O. Again.

Good thing is my 8-9 day luteal phase was now 11 thanks to Vitex which I only started taking on CD13! But it can´t be anything else, I think.

Now that Vitex seems to be working and luteal phase is hopefully no problem anymore, which means I shouldn´t have a problem with low progesterone, right? Could b/feeding be preventing me from getting pregnant in any other way now? (I thought it only affects so that it can lower your progesterone?) I so hope the next cycle is the one.

OMG!!! BFP!!! I caught the first PP egg! I could not be more excited! I hope this gives people hope, that sometimes just reducing nursings a little bit can help. Congrats to all the other BFPs this month too!
