I'm waiting to test. Put me down, please! We were suppose to be done trying so I wasn't temping, but my body is kind of classic as far as CM and CP. I'm know I O'd either Friday or Saturday, so AF would be due either the 10th or the 11th. I also know how my temps generally are, so I'm starting to temp this week.

Oh you're asking the wrong person! I can barely figure out how to check my email!

And I just had to add how much I HATE the TWW. I am so obsessing already.

I've never done it but I think first you type in a word, or icon. Then highlight it, and click on the "Insert Link" button and paste in the address.

I've been in and out of the ttc threads a bit since I was still waiting for that first post partum egg to drop... I finally got AF last month at 20 months pp (we've been wanting to ttc since ds was about 10m, so it kinda feels like we've been ttc for a while anyway...)
ANYWAY, long story short, I am breastfeeding through the night and he still wakes enough thta I'm not trying to temp right now. However, based on CF and what I know of my patterns based on pre-baby charts, I O'd on saturday...so we're in the 2ww now with fingers crossed!

I *think* I O'd sometime in the last few days, but I'm waiting for tomorrow's temp to confirm (late temping doesn't *usually* change my temp, but just in case...).

Gah.. we're in a cabin with my family Columbus Day weekend. I suppose I should just be glad that I'm not Oing then, but I *really* hope I won't (still) be 2WWing, either!!

Of course, if I get a BFP, that probably means that I should be trying to keep my mouth shut about it.. yeah, right.. like THAT would happen...

DH(37) + I(36) have been working on collaborative project #1 for 6 years, fighting more battles than I ever imagined. 2/2014 - IVF cycle =  due in late November!

Hello!

You can sign me up

I think I o'd either yesterday or today, so I'll be testing...like, three days from now

No, I guess I'll try and wait for the 10th or so.

I havn't ovulated yet...but I feel I will soon. I just had a m/c though, but it was very early. Chart predictions say I will ovulate within the next week - so we shall see. If I ovulate soonish, I will test Saturday the 11th? lol Maybe that will be too soon?...who knows! lol

The egg only lasts for 12-24 hours after you ovulate...So I think you are in for quite a good chance as you BDd before you ovulate. Those spermies love our cervical fluid, so they can live in it for a few days waiting around for that egg! hehe

I am mostly positive I O'd 9/25... so I'm a few days into my TWW. AF should come 10/10 or 10/11 - but I'm just a couple months post BC, so it may not be an exact science yet (actually... I never was an exact science). However, I am going to TRY really hard not to test until 10/15... because at that point, I will be pretty sure the test should come up BFP!

Last month I had so many "good symptoms" that ended up being nothing, so this month I don't even know what to grasp at.

Here's to lots and lots of BFPs in a couple days/weeks!

My temp dropped today. I'm only 4 or 5 dpo. It went from 98.2 to 97.6! What does that mean? I'm trying to assume I'm not pregnant because I don't want to get my hopes up only to see a negative HPT.

Well AF is due to start tomorrow and my tummy has been talking like it does the day before. I think I will be starting so I didn't even test this morning. If tomorrow comes and goes and the ugly witch is not here then I will consider but don't want to get my hopes up. This was our first month with clomid and we are only going to try that for 3 or 4 months so I am starting to get a little down.

I think I will start temping this next cycle too. My daughter always comes in sometime in the middle of the night and keeps me up so I am not sure how accurate it will be but will give it a shot.

When it was normal for me to be up 3-4 times in the middle of the night and NOT get a consecutive 3 hours sleep that TCOYF says to get, my temps were pretty constant. What I mean is, if waking up in the middle of the night is normal for you, temping will probably work for you. That's not scientific, that's just my thoughts. I think if you are used to getting sleep and then get woken up in the middle of the night, that's when your temps get all wonky.

AF is due tomorrow or Friday...and I'm feeling more premenstrual than I'd like. Thinking my symptoms earlier in the month were imagined or coincidental.

I caved and took a hpt in the afternoon yesterday (12dpo) and it was, of course, negative. It was a good thing because it's keeping me expecting the worst (and I'm trying not to hope too much).

Sorry MrsTC, I was hoping your symptoms were good ones! It is very mean of our bodies to tease us... especially when we are overly sensitive to any slight change during the TWW!

I have a very minor rashy facial skin condition periodically (due to overuse of benzoyl peroxide in earlier years)... and yesterday it flared worse than usual... so silly of me, it actually made me wonder if it could be hormonal! No other new symptoms to dwell on... same weird upper leg cramps I get throughout my cycle (and did even when PG with DD).

Guess I'll just wait it out and not get too hopeful!

Hoping for one (or two) BFPs on this TWW thread!

I'm here!

Although I highly doubt we got the egg this month. Stupid DH work schedule - we only BD TWICE! Gr. : (The day of O and day after.) And I stupidly took an allergy pill early in my cycle and I think that messed with my CM.)

Oh well.

AF is due 10/13 and I am NOT going to POAS until at least 10/14!!! (POAS-ing makes me crazy.)
