All right ladies, we've been slackin. 5 BFP's in August (2 unreported that I had to stalk to get ) is unacceptable. I expect everyone to step up their game this month! Let the BFP's begin!

dd was conceived at the beginning of September in 2004 and I absolutely loved the timing. ohhh, I wanna repeat it so bad this time as well. and .. I'm quite wet for the last two days. so we've been busy.
my cycles have been crazy, but I'm really hoping I will O this time. so I've been anxiously waiting for that temp rise. I had a very low temp yesterday, so I was wondering if it was a pre-O dip, but nope - no rise in temp today. May be tomorrow? Please-please-please!

you can add a link to my chart by my name in the header posting. the link is in my siggy.

Well, looks like I won't be 'actively' participating in this thread for a while, but I'll still be lurking!!!

(And even so, I'm not officially "hanging up my hat" until the next AF comes!)

Yay, new thread goodness! Anyone wanna have a gander at my chart? I think FF is gonna be a pain in the butt and decide I O'd on CD20, even though I am pretty certain it was CD19, I want my cross hairs!

Where are you at in your cycle:10 DPO those tests are calling me. bastards...
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply:cravings for watermelon, blueberry doughnuts, and rice with yellow mustard. Cramps. at least the wild dreams stopped!
Testing:Saturday If I make it. (But I guess thats the point)
Thoughts: I really want this to be the cycle. I keep swinging back and forth over if I think I'm PG or about to start AF. Either way is a blessing. After 6 months of no cycle any cycle is great, but babies are greater! I also can't decide if positive thought or my negative nancy idea of "realism" would be better. I wish I could forget about it and just let the universe unfold, but as you ladies know. Thats not going to happen!

I'm crunchy... Like a Dorito.

Thoughts: Can I just ovulate already????!! I NEED to ovulate this week because I am going out of town Saturday for a week to camp with family. Come on, ovaries!! We have had house guests for the past few days and they will be here until Wednesday morning, but we just BD'd quietly last night because I'm not passing up fertile CM!

Can you change my age to 27 please? Thanks!

Thoughts: I'm super frustrated today because my thermometer deleted my last few temps. I think this morning was 97.31 but I'm not positive. AND DH isn't much help these days. Why is it that the load of TTC relies completely on the woman's shoulders?

Where are you at in your cycle: CD 26, 10 DPO
Appointments: nope
Symptoms if they apply: sore boobs, sour stomach, nothing that couldn't just be pms.
Testing: Only if I get 18 days of high temperatures, so September 9
Thoughts: I'm still pretty calm this cycle. I think even if we missed the egg, I'm so happy to be having a normal cycle I won't even be that upset,although I'll be much happier to get a bfp! I really feel as long as I'm ovulating and cycling normally, we'll conceive eventually!

Where are you at in your cycle: CD 20
Appointments: I think I'm gonna call an acupuncturist tomorrow. This cycle seems to be better then the last one, but who knows. I want to try to balance my body.
Symptoms if they apply: none
Testing: m/a
Thoughts: with dd, the conception date was Sept 4. At least, that is how it got calculated by the ultrasound dating. the timing was absolutely perfect and I've been wishing to repeat something very similar. And now it looks like I might even O around the next couple of days (look at my chart - what do you think? plus, I've been feeling very sexy in the last couple of days). Last year around this time, I thought I saw some ewcm and even though I didn't feel totally ready at the time, we tried that one month just because I figured that the timing would be perfect and if it would work out, I'd be happy. So I really feel the pressure because I want it so bad for the timing issues. argh!!!

Monday Check in: TTC # 2...Cycle # 2!
Name: Ann
Date: 1st September!
Where are you at in your cycle: 5 DPO!
Appointments: N/A
Symptoms if they apply: All of them....of course I always get early pregancy symptoms before I am due AF anyhow...
Testing: I will try and hold out and test NO sooner than 12 DPO! lol
Thoughts: I am not feeling hopeful....My cycle is ALL over the place. It has NEVER been like this!...The only 'new' thing in my TTC diet is Vit B complex...So I guess I can assume its that. My birthday is on the 13th...DS on the 19th...I was kinda hoping for the best birthday pressie ever this year (a BFP!)...maybe I will get it?...Sigh...

Mummy me : > Thats Ann! and my beautiful SONS Duncanand Hamish 19/09/05 & 22/04/10!

Where are you at in your cycle: CD 23 /3DPO (personally I think it's 4DPO but FF disagrees)
Appointments: I don't really do appointments.
Symptoms if they apply: none, unless being impatient and cranky is a symptom, alas, I think it's just a personality trait. =)
Testing: FF says wait till Sept. 12th, I will try to hold out...yep.
Thoughts: Another TWW, these things are starting to get on my nerves.

Yah, I thought of that, but for some reason it doesn't seem like implantation spotting to me. Of course I have never been pg, so I really have no idea what implantation spotting would be like. It was bright red, several wipes worth(sorry for the gross visual), then I checked a 1/2 hour later when I got home and it had turned to brownish. It is more than "spotting" though. It was enough to put in a tampon because I don't have any liners and needed something. I am going to try to be hopeful. I cannot be having a 6 day lp after a 2 month long cycle!
