Lizzy Is there anything you'd like to tell us?

Fantesia -- Hi!! Drop in whenever.

Eli's mom -- I feel for you! With DD I just "knew" as well, and on the first time around, too. I was totally spoiled! I'm sorry about that BFN.

Honeybunny -- Hi and welcome! I've added you to the header.

Amy -- Hi! Welcome! Looks like you just ovulated on Friday! Do you want to change those test dates? 10/23 would definitely be too early to test.

schellie -- Welcome! I've got you listed. So you're testing in only 2 days??? Got any symptoms we can help you obsess about?

sunnybird -- Gotcha on the header. It's funny, either it seems like the days are draggggggging, or they're going super-fast.

BeauGeek -- Tomorrow's the day for jumpin'! Are you going to be using only the new FF chart, or both?

Erin, mom to DD (1/06) and DS (10/09)

Hi! Yeah, move my test date. (I already posted about this, before I saw your post here.) My chart is scrooed this month. Don't know what's going on. Says I ovulated Saturday, but I'm more inclined to think I'm anovulatory. But oh well...if I did ovulate, I at least timed spelunking well enough to maybe...just maybe...catch it.

Anyone ever have what looked to be an anovulatory cycle and turned out to be just late ovulation, or even still turn up pg? I can usually set my clock to my cycle, but this month is so wonky. No sore boobs, no hint of pms, nothing. FF says I ovulated Friday, but it also says my progesterone cream usage might be causing my temp to be higher, even though I'm only using like 1/2 dose. :::sigh::: It bugs me to not be on schedule. Call me a control freak.

I wonder if the incident of twins is higher after an anovulatory cycle....hmmmmmmmm....

Aufilia - FF is now saying I ovulated Saturday. Sheesh. I'm going to test Nov 1, unless I get AF first, which is likely. I'm pretty certain I didn't ovulate--I think it's just the progesterone that's increasing my temps.

You did have EWCM followed by a fairly distinct dry-up, though. And the progesterone didn't increase your temps much on the 3 days you used it previously. Do you see an RE or is it OTC progesterone cream?

RavenStar, sweetieberlin, KimProbable.... Please update me with your test dates if you have them! Happy baby dusty implanty vibes to all of you. :

And now... Olerica, Jasmine, BeauGeek, Valid, and whozeyermamma.... Time to pull out your skimpiest nightwear, turn on child-inappropriate cable TV channels and get at it. We need to instigate a mass-migration to the DDCs from this thread and you girls on "on deck"!

i honestly can't remember if i ever joined this thread (sometimes they all seem to blur- lol) but you can add me under 2ww i don't know if i exactly buy that i've indeed ovulated as this would be the earliest by nearly a week (during a high stress time no less) in my 8 years of charting. i suppose only time will tell. if my temps stay up i'll be testing somewhere around nov. 5th.

It's OTC. I only use a little blob. A friend of mine says she only uses a "pea-sized" blob. My bottle says to use a full pump as a dose, but that's like two pea-sized blobs, so I know I'm only using 1/2 a dose or less. The thing about the times I used PC earlier in my cycle (before the so-called "O"), is that I was not very consistent: one day I might use it just in the morning, then I'd forget, and then 2 days later, I'd use it at night. But starting on the 22nd, I started using it morning and night, because if I was anovulatory (which is what it looked like at the time) I knew that a bit of progesterone will help offset that estrogen a little. I know something's weird about this cycle, because I don't have any signs of PMS--usually get sore bbs at, or pretty soon after, "O", but I got nothing. I just have a nagging teensy ache very low in my abdomen for 2 days, like I've been doing kegels (sp?) or crunches. FF says, even with my "O" date moved to Saturday, that I still have a good chance of catching the egg...if the egg was indeed pitched. So that's comforting.

We may be off a little though; my cycle is weird this month, as you can see from my recent posts. Are you actually testing on Oct 27th? My test date is moved back closer to Nov 1, but I'll probably end up testing earlier. Haha!

AF came today, so I am not waiting to know anymore. In fact, I don't foresee me being in the "waiting to know" category again. I have had a solid track record of BFNs for a year now, so really, I just wait to O and then wait for AF.

FF just moved my ovulation date from Saturday to Friday (again). I'm trying to hold out until Nov 1, too....so let's try to keep each other sane! haha! I rarely make it 14 days out.
