Why does it seem we are always in the same boat, but I am 6 dpo now, I think anyway. Is creamy mucus a good sign?

Yes it does seem that way doesn't it. As far I know it's a good sign. But as with everything else doesn't mean anything till you get a BFP and can look back and say for sure.

Today I am noticing tingling sensations in my breasts, weird?

The beginning of this tww was going so fast now it seems to have slowed another flippin' week to go...

7 dpo! only 11 more to go : ( I do the 18 day wait, not the 2 week. Not that I'm complaining as my luteal phase has been the only thing that's been cooperative! )

Congrats Pleasantlyfurious!!!! How exciting

Carlin, you are a strong strong woman...18 days.


Anyone else around 3DPO? I had my first IUI on Tuesday and it went well. I think our timing was right on because the nurse said my cervix was "wide open", despite the fact that I couldn't do anything to trick Fertility Friend into putting my O date the second "peak" day. Based on temps, it gave me the first peak day. Crossing my fingers at this point. How I wish it was one week from now

We are cycle buddies! DP's insems were Wednesday night and Thursday, so today is either 2 or 3 dpo depending on how you count. We are waiting to test until 18 dpo as well, so you'l test before us. DP has really long luteal phases. How are you feeling? DP woke up with some cramping today???

jazzcat you can manually override FF's o date down at the bottom. It's just a computer program, so I'd go by your doctor and what your body tells you.

In other news- I'm out.

serapetera ~ Yay! 18 days huh? I don't know how you gals do it. Ya know, long luteal phase does not mean your test will show positive later?

musiclady ~ I'm sorry Yeah, I did learn about that override. Still, I wish FF did it on it's own. Now I feel like something is not quite right.

Woodland ~ Good to see you over here. I remember you from the wonderful Maca thread you put together. Did you take a hiatus and now you're back? I seem to remember that. We're cycle buds too!

afm, nothing much to report here. Feeling well, temps super high, maybe Clomid does that. Had an irritable tummy yesterday but I think it was due to the 1/2 of watermelon I consumed over the last day. Anyone else crazy about watermelon?

Hope everyone's having a great holiday weekend!

update to here it's doing that thing again. I am going to swich browsers and try it again.

AFM: 8dpo. I'm going insane. I keep thinking that I feel things. Keep making symptoms up. Ugh. why can't it be next week already. I want to cave and test on Monday but I know thats not going to do any good. Plus I gave DH all the tests and told him not to give them to me until the 6th. You wouldn't think that after TTC this long I would still be going insane during the TWW.

I live in Northeast Philadelphia, but we at the time just started looking in New Jersey for a bigger house.
My boobs are not tingly just feel a little more solid, if that makes sense. Still have a lot of creamy cm though. I am somewhere about 7 dpo. We just went fishing and a am so beat. Of course he is out back starting the barbecue and dd and her friend are in the pool.

jazcat! I did take a bit of a hiatus when I wasn't ovulating. It was just too frustrating to sit around watching everyone else go through the 2WW and get BFPs while I had yet to O all year. I felt like I would just take the time to try to relax and concentrate on being healthier... then I started o'ing again! So, I'm back

Actually it's perfect timing for a little implantation bleeding. How long is your luteal phase usually? Crossing my fingers for you

I've got family in town this weekend, so we're feeling at least a little distracted. Ugh, this is the first cycle we have ttc since DP had a m/c last year, and I had forgotten (almost) how long the tww is.
We are waiting til 18dpo because she seems to be one of those folks that doesn't excrete stuff in urine - so no opks either - they just don't work, even though she obviously ovulates. So we will go for a blood test on Sept 15. (if no AF)
I hope everyone is finding some distraction this weekend!

I have no idea. First time charting and irregular periods. How long do you have to wait to get a BFP? Should I wait 18? or 14? How long does everyone else usually wait.

cak, your chart looks pretty good to me. In another couple days you'll have a better idea of what's going on I think.

I think waiting for 14 dpo is usually good. Some people have even tested as early as 9 dpo and got a bfp but the earlier you test the better the chance of a false negative. I personally am going to wait 18 as I've had luteal phases as long as 16 days and I really really hate negatives

: and for you (and all the rest of us here!!)

A large study was done that showed 84% of implantations occured between 8 and 10 days past ovulation. And a positive BFP would show a day or two after implantation. Of course there's been plenty of cases of a first BFP earlier than 8DPO and later than 12DPO. Personally, with my last pregnancy, I got a BFN 10DPO and a BFP 11DPO.

When you get a BFP also depends on the senstivity of the pregnancy test you're using. If you're going to test before 14DPO, use an "early" pregnancy test, ideally one that tests for 20-25 mIU.

Long story short, as to not waste too many tests, I'd say start testing 11DPO, with a 20-25miu test, if you want to find out as early as possible. Or if you have the patience, wait until after your expected period, or 14DPO. HTH!

Hey, does anyone know about dollar-store cheapie pregnancy tests in Canada? I hear alot about them on various websites, but don't know if dollar-stores here sell them (which I can check of course), and what quality they are if so (wondering if anyone knows).

I think I will O next cycle when we are on our 1 yr anniversary! that should be fun
