It's yours, then! I'll PM you the coding so it's easy to start the first page. Remind me at the end of the month.

I couldn't stand how light the BW and $Tree were with FMU so I took an Answer with SMU and it's better. Pretty much like the FRER from yesterday afternoon but I think implantation was at 10 dpo (3 days ago) so I'm not too upset by the faintness yet.

omg I am so irritated today. I really thought I O'd on Saturday and yesterday's temp was above cover but todays dropped down so tcoyf took away my potential coverline and my estimated O date. I could cry. I just hope it was a fluke and jumps back up tomorow.

Yeah, it looks to me like you could still be waiting to O. What's your CM like today?

sticky when i checked earlier today, semi-typical for past O for me. I just don't know. Could be an anovulatory cycle and that will be really disappointing and a lot of wasted time.

With the sticky CM I'd guess that you did O the other day. Sometimes low temps are just a fluke.

p.s. did you test earlier than usual? sometimes when i test earlier i get a lower temp.

My first PPAF is here! We had to take a little while off from trying, because it was wearing me down and I was feeling really depressed that it wasn't happening. I'm already in the waiting to O section, so no need to move me.
Cheri 22 did say September, and I didn't think it was going to happen, but maybe it will!

Wow! I go away for a week and lots of good news on this thread. Congrats lilgreen and because (and any others I forgot to mention) on the BFP's!

I have not been temping this month. I was traveling between time zones and probably wouldn't have reliable temps anyway. I'm just going off CM and O pains, which probably puts me about 4 dpo.

As for those who are questioning about taking temps and multiple wakings/nursings: It doesn't hurt to give it a try. I was skeptical myself, but even with the too-many-to-count wakenings, I can still see a clear thermal shift most months. HTH

Good Luck everyone!

no, but I slept like a rock last night and Jamie didn't wake up any at all. I am guessing that that is what did it. When I put in the CM on TCOYF it gave me back my "fertile phase" so I am feeling better about it. We will see what happens tomorrow.

Please move me to Waiting to O!

I started a light af this afternoon, so I'm pretty sure I did o just from symptoms and then had a whopping 4-5 day luteal phase: So Yay!!! Not as good as being pg, but much better than where I was, so I'm excited about this turn of events:.

We conceived our 3rd ds in the first full, normal pp cycle, so maybe that will happen again!

thanks, that does help. i actually quit doing temps a few weeks ago, b/c i thought that they weren't reliable with all the nightwaking. maybe i'll give it a go again.


i'm happy to see news of bfps and all these mamas getting their cycles back. :

i had my first acupuncture treatment last thursday, and i swear ever since then things have been happening in there. i had ewcm and an open cervix yesterday and today, and i've been crampy (although not o crampy). i have another treatment this thursday, so i guess we'll see :

Well, I think I'm headed for another chemical, honestly.

Temp was 98.1 - not high. Both $Tree and BW could be BFN to reasonable people. $Tree is lighter than 2 days ago... I'm not wasting any expensive tests today.

This is exactly how it happened last time.

because,
I am sending sticky sticky sticky thoughts your way. 98.1 is not that low...it is still way above your coverline!! Maybe that baby is just trying to confuse you...isn't that what kids do anyway??
Hang in there - we're all thinking of you!

Thank you. Yeah, 98.1 isn't terrible by itself although it is lower than what I'd like to see.

The biggest red flag for me is the lighter/negative tests. If this goes like last time, I'll have a BFN tomorrow and my temp will totally dump. Spotting will start and then bleeding will be in full force on Thursday.

Can I be added to the list under waiting to O? I have 16 days to go!

My DD is 9 months old and we are ready to get the ball rolling! I'm slightly nervous, and chickened out last month, so this will be our first official month of TTC#2 .

Oh, mama. I will be thinking of you today, and the little blossoming bundle of cells in there! I agree that 98.1 is still a good temp, and we'll see what tomorrow brings. There are lots of factors that can influence the darkness of the line, so says peeonastick.com anyway. I can understand your feelings though, since this has happened to you already. :

I always consider anything over or around 98 to be high. Of course, I usually am in the high 96s or low 97s.

for you, mama. I'll keep you in my thoughts.

I'm so sorry to hear this, because. That happened to me too a few months ago. I really hope that is not what is going on. *fingers crossed*

AFM - I don't think the clomid worked at all. My temps are not high for post o, the lowest they've ever been, actually. I did decide to use the NPC, but I can't see that it has helped. I'm pretty down about my temps.

My thoughts are with you because.


I'm so not knowing what to to think this cycle. Part of me really thinks I'm pregnant. But then I don't want to trust that and be diappointed. I overlayed this cycle with 2 of my pregnancy charts and they are slightly similar. I offically have the longest LP this cycle since PPAF. Last cycle I was spotting at 8dpo and had full force AF when I woke up. If I don't have AF tomorrow morning I'm going to have DH pick up a test and I'll test Thursday morning.

because, I am really hoping for you and thinking about you! And sending your way.

I just thought I'd check in. I am in my TWW of my 2nd PP cycle. My temps were looking really good, but then today it fell a little, but I had a really restless night, I was burning up all night while DH was freezing. And DS woke up a bunch, so I don't know if that's a factor or not. I felt cramping (implantation??) back on 8-9dpo, along with some symptoms that made me think AF was coming early, but now the back pain and achey ankles are gone, and I am just waiting.... Yesterday and today I have been incredibly thirsty. Is that a sign of anything??
