Oh well- I'll know something before not too much longer. AF due on the 19th.


Congrats on the BFP's!!

My chart is all weird this month, I think! I know that I must have O'd but it was so much earlier than usual, and my temps aren't going as high as normal...

Talula, I got my herbs from Mountain Rose. Any tips on brewing? I got one of those sock thingies. Do I just put in a teaspoon of which ever herb per cup of tea and brew for 10 min covered, or is different with straight herbs?
Oh and by the way, those bags are huge, 4oz of dried herbs is A LOT! What a deal.

I made a blend of all four of the herbs in equal portions and put maybe 1-2 tablespoons in my tea bag (I bought the disposable kind...I know, bad. A sock thing would work fine). I boiled the water and added the tea bag. I let it sit for 15-30 minutes. I read for medicinal teas, 15 minutes is the minimum, 30 is better. Otherwise you're just drinking flavored water.

ETA: YES the bags are huge. I didn't realize! I bought 8 oz of each and I have herbs coming out my ears.

I'll try that, thanks! I used up the last of my store bought teabags today, so will try the new herbs tomorrow.

veganmama719... coming out of lurkdom after reading the sad news about little Finn. It must be so heartbreaking for everyone. I'm thinking of his family and hoping their happy memories help them heal.

bumping us back up to page 1.

I had accupuncture last night. My third session I think. She said that my pulses are definately improved and I am responding very quickly to the treatment. We are both pretty excited about my "normal" length cycle. I told her about how I had tried talking to my ovaries 2 cycles ago, and it didn't work for that cycle(that one was 58 days). But last cycle I ovulated on CD19, the very day I had been telling my ovaries to ovulate on in the previous cycle. maybe it worked, just delayed.

I keep getting the same 2 temp readings during this O-cycle. Is that weird? I wish they would go higher!

I'm back.

veganmama, I am really sorry for your and your family's loss .

Lizzy, hope it was implantation bledding!

hi lilgreen and talula.

talula, in "Wise Woman Herbal" the herbs are brewed for at least 4 hours. that's what I do.

snow~pea, yay for improved pulses!!!!:

as I anticipated it's possibly I ovulated while sharing a room with my aunt in France but then again, I've had a few high temps before and didn't ovulate until later... I also brought back a nasty cold. but something good will happen soon, I know it

Snow~Pea I'm totally crashing your thread, but this is exactly what happened with me! The first cycle I talked to my ovaries, they didn't listen and I Od on day 53 or something like that, but the second month I Od on day 16, exactly like I'd been telling them! That cycle didn't work, but the next one I also Od on day 16 and well, you know the rest! I know it sounds totally out there, but it seemed to work for me! for you and all the others here. Thanks for letting me butt in

Yay, oceane is back! How was your trip? Sorry you brought back a cold. I will be sending you low temp vibes : in the hopes that you didn't o while so far away from your DH. I agree, something great is coming your way very soon!

AHHHH : thread crasher! Just kidding, you can stalk me anywhere Carlin. Weird that it worked the second cycle for you too. I didn't even try talking to my ovaries last cycle because it didn't work the cycle before. Isn't that funny, like delayed reaction or something. : I get an early O again this cycle. Its good to see you back in our neck of the woods, taking time away from your fabulous and fun ddc!

Not sure whether I am 9 DPO or 13 DPO. CD 12/13 are my usual O dates but it could be thrown off by the m/c I guess. What do you all think?

hi carlin! your bfp means hope, so crash away!


veganmama
, I agree with ff. it's hard to interpret without cm but if you ovulated earlier you'd have 2 low temps right after the spike. and now they're all higher up there. making sense? :

snow~pea, please no low temp vibes I'd rather o earlier and try again next cycle than having to bd with a runny nose and low spirits. but I get you are trying to give me what I want

Veganmama, I'm not sure. I can see why you think FF might be wrong...if you O'd on CD11 or 12 you'd be triphasic now. It really does work either way. You have been pretty stressed lately, so a late o is not out of the question. I hope it becomes clearer soon.

oceane, OK I take it back. I see you got your crosshairs so I was too late anyway . Yay for early O! I hope your next cycle goes just as quick.

I am 12 DPO, and really think I *might* be PG! I haven't POAS yet though. I wanted to wait 2 more days, but now I regret not using FMU this morning with my FRER!

Maybe I will take it tomorrow if AF doesn't show up!

Hey vegans, how is everyone? Lizzy your chart is looking great, actually it looks triphasic. oceane and veganmama, are you taking a break from charting? I haven't been great about temping the lasgt couple of days, but there isn't really much to report. Hopefully I will O in about a week or so. Hi Catemom and Talula. Hope everyone is having a great weekend.

Did I also mention that my sense of smell is sooooo sensitive too? Yesterday I thought a bottle of wine broke in my dining room, but it was really dh's hair smelling like grape scented shampoo... upstairs!


Then today when I went grocery shopping I almost wanted to vomit from the fish & chips restaurant next door that was so strong, but I go to that store all the time, and I never smell fishy smell!

I am testing tomorrow, btw!

Oooh, Lizzy, sounds promising! We renamed spaghetti "the stinky" in our house because while pregnant I could not bear the smell of it. DH had to eat it on the sly and then destroy all traces of it before I came in the room.

lizzy, this is so exciting!!! test!!!

I was out of town again sat and sun so no temping. I wonder if I won't ovulate at all this cycle. maybe it's because I ran out of thyroid meds? but then I ovulated before I went on them, too.... this is crazy making. I'll just stalk Lizzy's chart.
p.s. first 2 classes today!

whoa, weird morning... Today is AF day, but nothing yet, it's still early? I'm feeling really shaky. I didn't test because I didn't feel shaky until after I got up and started my day. I tested two days ago and got BFN, so I figured I would just wait to see if AF came...

sigh...
