General concensus is that I O'ed on Wed, 8/20. So, I'll join.

Husband is positive- but I'm not. Not feeling pressure, but still just unsure.

musiclady What are you not feeling pressure about? Just in general?

septemberbaby68 Of course you are welcome! Obsessing is not limited to those who chart! We've just taken obsession to a scientific level!

y'all are added so far, call your friends lets get this ROCKIN!

Dang it! I want to be on this list!! I'm still waiting for AF, so that I can O, so that I can do some BD'ing, so that THEN I can have the 2WW!

Damn it! I'm never satisfied, am I?

meant that I don't feel pressured to have a BFP. Husband is positive that I'm positive, but he's eternally optimistic. Which is part of why I love him. But he's not so optimistic that I feel pressure to actually be pregnant. If I'm not, then we just try again.

You know?

I'll test early September if no AF. Not testing before then. I'm a no POAS type gal. AF is proof enough (and way cheaper).

Can I join here too? I am 7 or 8 dpo. FF gave me dashed crosshairs on Sunday, but we were camping that weekend and it was a chilly : morning, AND I tend to be a slow rise after O person anyway, so I think it could be possible I O'd on Saturday instead. Anyway, it is my first TWW and so far it has been rather fun (yes I realize I might be certifiably insane), full of nervous anticipation (rather like waiting for Christmas morning).

I have had very few symptoms so far. I had some odd cramping/twinges on Friday and Saturday (implantation maybe?). Also my cervix is softer than usual post O, and I am continueing to get creamy/sticky CM (even though I am normally pretty dry post O). I don't think I have any real breast tenderness, although my right breast is sore now 'cause DH rolled over onto it this morning (spelunking is a dangerous sport). For a final point of obsession, I got my highest BBT ever (although I only have been charting 3.5 months) this morning -- triphasic chart maybe?

My goal is to hold out testing until next weeknd (Aug 30th) if AF doesn't arrive before than -- but I don't have to be into work until later in the morning on Thursday, so I may break down and test early (I have these two expired preganancy tests that I got free at a health fair that I figure I can use early, cause the results probably won't mean anything, but I will get to feel like I'm peeking ). I'm keeping my fingers crossed for all of us ::.

.

yeah, me too- I think I O'ed early than FF says. That's a little frustrating. I only started temping about halfway through my cycle. Should have started earlier. I mean, it's a computer program. It's not like it's written in stone, right? It is possible that I could have O'ed on CD 15 or 16 instead of 17. Well, just because I *want* it to be true, doesn't necessarily make it so, huh?

Need to go talk to husband- he's just so super supportive and I could use some encouragement instead of this : feeling that I have right now!!!

Hello, everyone!

Can I join, please? I think I Oed on 8/20, AF due/Testing on 9/2...

I thought I was being so smart and sure of myself, being absolutely positive that every month I ovulate on cd13. That's when I have mittelschmerz pains. Sounds reasonable, right?

So I told hubby it was safe no later than cd6 to have unprotected lovemaking. We did. Now, keep in mind, I do very much wish to have another child. BUT I would never be deceitful and lie to dh about my fertile times. I honestly believed it was safe on cd6. DH does not want to have another child at this point.

But was I safe? Really? Now I'm not sure when I really ovulated. I did have the pains again on cd13 (like clockwork). But it started occurring to me that maybe the pains were not the be all to end all. I could be experiencing mittelschmerz post-ovulation! OMG, I will feel really terrible if I've made a mistake. I don't chart these days, just going by cm and mitt pains to detect ovulation.

Guess I'll just have to wait and see... Hubby and I would be alright if there is a baby, but I had wanted it to happen under a bit different circumstances....

~Karenchicken3.gifso happy to be mothering my four... DS ('94), DS ('94), DD ('00), and DS -- June 8, 2011, our UC baby!

I'm in!!!:

We were going to take the month of to decide on a third but well.....thats has gone out the window

So I think I o'd sometime between the 20 and 22nd. My lmp was late and it was really light (thought I was pregnant?) So this cycle may be a little off.

We are just trying to bd every couple a days

Anyway I am aprox 2-4 dpo!

Oh- I thought Zen's ultra fun thread was more about spelunking. (Snickers....) Woo-Hoo!!!

I'll do both threads, but for different reasons.

I don't think the edit worked right. I'm completely lost from the list! I have never hosted a thread, so I'm not sure what to do about it.

I like having both too. Zen's thread is so popular, it's too easy to get lost if I go a couple days without being able to catch up!

Groovy, thanks for the feedback, I'll keep the thread!

I am going to PM a mod later today about the 1st post, It's really strange! If I click "edit" all the info is there!

Hi Ladies!! I am roughly 10dpo....not certain as I'm not charting (first PP AF). I have a whole slew of symptoms that are driving me crazy, but I was hoping you gals could assist me with a bit of something. I didn't check back then, so I don't know....what is CP supposed to feel like after O/when pg?? I thought it was supposed to get lower and very firm closer to AF, no?? Mine is still HSO. I had spotting on CD14, which I have NEVER had before, so could mean something, could just be my body adjusting, but I'm 99% certain I O'd that day.

Anywho, I am here, going NUTS with you gals!! Theoretically I don't belong here since AF is supposed to arrive 8/31, but I need somewhere to obsess and you gals seemed warm and inviting :

Congrats on the crosshairs, Kriket! We can stalk each others' charts here and get obsessive! LOL I have a very low chance due to our circumstances this month, but my temps seem to get higher almost every day. I'm tentatively hoping.

As for cervical position... I'm not sure. I don't routinely check my cervix. I probably should... but it's so much easier to just temp and check cm.

Pretty sure I O'ed on the 23rd, so I'm in the 2WW now too. Can't wait to test. This will be our 2nd child - with our DD we got lucky the first month we tried, so I'm trying not to be too hopeful as I know it will likely take longer. It's hard though, lol.

I'm with ya ErikaS, we were lucky our first time around too. I O'd around Aug 20 so I have a few days left....Of course, I don't chart or anything either, so I am totally guessing on my O day, but I've been keeping track of CM for the past few months and I'm pretty sure!

I sorta feel pregnant, my body is sure rebeling against the toddler jumping on it!

Here's hoping!
