Welcome, Mamas!

The heat of summer is upon us - let's take it to the bedroom!

Please put all changes in bold.

My status: we've got a family wedding on Saturday and I'll only be 4dpo so I'm planning to have a good time!

Hey nursing mamas! I've been waiting for Aug to start so I can join you gals! I'm still BFing my 14 month old, and TTC-ish this month or soon!

I am going to O within a couple days.. but I don't think it'll happen this month.... I was really hoping for it.. but today DH's dog had a heart attack.. so the baby dancing is now on hold

Hello nursing mamas!
We are still not officially trying but not preventing either. I O'd last week and we had fairly good timing, can you please move me to 2WW?

Good luck to everyone, hope August is as lucky a month as July was!!

Hello everyone!

Please move me to Two Week Wait!

I am 10DPO.

Temps are higher today than ever, though I got a BFN on an Answer test this AM, but I am not giving up hope because it's still early (I know I shouldn't have tested, oh well). What do yall think about my chart?

Good luck to everyone!!

I'm still here, in what I believe is my first 2ww. It took us 2 years and fertility drugs to conceive ds so I'm not expecting much this first cycle

I am still here... after WAY TOO LONG...

I am still waiting to O, which should be any day now. I am not sure what my temps are doing though. I am going to have to pull out my TCOYF. Anyone else have any ideas as to why they went up before O? I am new to temping.

Sending baby to all!

I would have tested, too. Your chart looks awesome!!

Off to a rehearsal dinner and a weekend full of wedding stuff so I may be a little slow to up date until Sunday. Have a great weekend, everyone!

I don't see a temp shift... you're still under the coverline. I'll bet it's soon, though with those CM and CP signs! Get busy, Mama!

Robin - I think our charts look similar. Maybe we're both waiting to O still?

I'm here too! Waiting to O right now, although it should be any day (minute) now. Will update again when I get a change. Hope there are lots of BFPs this month!!!

I'm pretty sure I geared up to O but never did due to stress. I think I'm gearing up again. We have been so busy that we have been putting off BD. I'm telling DH that we need to find time tonight and tomorrow. I think I'll O on Sunday.

Hi! May I join?? I am still nursing my almost-2 year old. dh and i had a night of romance around O day (i think). But ya know how these cycles are....completely unpredictable. We have been using the withdrawal method and/or NFP since #2 was born. We have decided that now we will just let things happen as they will. So, here I am. If we should have a #3....wow!

So, I think I am in the 2ww now. So weird! Oh, I am about 5 DPO (maybe). Of course I am already thinking that I feel preggers...lol! Shooting pains through bb's, slight headaches, lots of creamy, stretchy mucus, fatigue...but these are all post ovulation symptoms anyway, right?

Great to be here! Good luck to everyone!!!

i'm still waiting to O, waiting for flo, you know

i had that one 3 day cycle after i had my iud pulled, and ff says i ovulated on cd 21, but bfns 15 and 18 dpo.

i start acupuncture treatments next week to help bring on my cycles. thing is, that for about the last 8 months or so, it seems like my body has been gearing up for them. i get all the symptoms (pms, bloating, cramps, breakouts, chocolate cravings ), but no period (except for the one after the iud pull). i taked with my DOM, and she said it would be fine to do, minus the herbs, so we're giving it a try. i just feel like a car engine that won't turn over, you know? it's very :

: that these treatments give my body the little push for flo to come again!

Chart looks great! Nice thermal shift. Good Luck!

AFM: Ds and I are flying out to CA tonight to spend about 5 days with the in-laws, so I will have to catch up on this thread next week.

Hope to see lots of BFP's by then!

Good luck everyone!

oh aimee! is it terrible to say i'm sort of glad to find someone else in the same boat?? we are at 17 months PP and STILL no AF. i know it's not THAT long.. that some mamas go for even 2 YEARS! but i really really want to DTD knowing there's a CHANCE. ugh.

here's to both of us PPAF'ing SOON or even better -- O'ing and not knowing and BFP! hehehe.

i feel like maybe i should be moved to waiting for first PP egg : am all low cervix-ee, with that little bugger shut tight as a drum. boo!

Hi. I'm still nursing my 17 mo DD and have had no AF but I'm almost positive O'd this month (4dpo) so can you add me to the 2WW. We're more nt/np than anything.

because! You can move me to Waiting to O! I suspected I ovulated on July 11th or so, and I did as I got my first PPAF on July 26. So, now CD6 of my first postpartum cycle. Temping and plan on using OPKs. dp and I would really, really like to conceive in the next 2 months for logistic/financial reasons, but we are read to welcome this next baby into our family whenever he/she is ready!

: for tons and tons of this month!

Still lurking around. We decided to try this month, I think I'm Oing in the next day or so. I've been waiting until Oct, but I have 40 day cycles. Dh is scheduled to be out of town on a business trip during the next O time and then the next cycle, I'll be 400 miles away for weeks for DD1's therapy. That would put us waiting until the very end of year before we could try. I'm not that hopeful, my LP has been under 10 days so far, you can keep me in waiting to be ready because I'm sure I still will be waiting!

There is no way to happiness, happiness is the way.

My temp was lower today than it has been, I am thinking maybe it's a pre-rise dip, meaning I am Oing today. : BDing is on my schedule!

Hi, everyone, I'm new around here, can I join in? I have a 23 month old nursling.

Please add me to Waiting to Be Ready.

I just got my first PPAF last week so I think we may start TTC this fall, but I'm already obsessing about it (just a little)! Just signed up for Fertility Friend but I haven't even gotten a thermometer yet. This is all new to me!

thanks!
