how has everyone been? i am back from Vegas and the in laws. thank go DH is not home right now to ttc. the in laws gave me enough stress for the whole mth!!!! but all is good and i did have fun :

*hugs* Sorry about AF.

Well, my temp did not rise this morning, it's actually lower. Anyone care to share what they think is going on with me? I'm going to do my last OPK in two hours...

Kalishanti, I think you will end up with your O date marked as today or yesterday... just a guess.

Sorry about AF, sweetieberlin.

AFM, 5dpo, not too sure what's going on. My temps don't look spectacular, but I'm just hangin in there, hoping this is the month.

54 days to Christmas, guys!! Are you reeeaaady?

I've been having cramps for the past 4 days. Kinda expecting AF. I'm only 9dpo today. AF should show Tuesday. It's easier for me to expect the worst and be pleasantly surprised if something wonderful does happen!

Kali, I agree with Binkin, yesterday's was a little darker. I would consider the last 3 positive though, so not sure what that means. I would bet that you ovulated yesterday or today.

Nice temp spike Kali, if it stays up tomorrow I would say you ovulated yesterday. : Hope you caught that egg!

Binkin, how are you holding up cycle buddy?

I had a bad dream last night. In it I got a BFP, but for some reason we were at the inlaws and DH was sleeping, so I told MIL first (yah like that would ever happen). Then AF showed up a few hours later. I was upset and blamed myself for not making the healthiest choices during the 2ww.

Weird dream, snow~pea! Doing pretty well here although my temps aren't very high above the coverline. Compared to last month's dramatic spike it's kind of disappointing, but I still choose to believe that This Is The Month. : for us! Cheri's prediction, please come true for me :P

That's a awful dream. I dreamed all night about taking my temperature! Yea.... crazy much? I hope my temps go up tomorrow! I hope I ovulated. And if we didn't catch the egg it certainly wasn't for trying. I have never BD'd so much in my Life! My DH is even tired! hahah.

Well, I'm back for another month. I am going to discuss with DH if we should chart or use OPK's this month. I used to chart but I was becoming obsessive. We both go for physicals this month (DH on Wed) and DH will be giving a sperm sample, so I will be praying that everything is OK for us. Our doctor briefly discussed clomid with me but won't put me on it until we see if we need it and I'm a little reluclant cuz I don't want to be on any unnecessary drugs!

Heres to a good month for us all!

Monday Check in on Sunday

Name: Deb
Date: 11/2/08
Where are you at in your cycle: Cd21; 7dpo
Appointments: n/a
Symptoms if they apply: I'm a raging B%^&* today, does that count?
Testing: 11/7/08
Thoughts: Pretty sure we didn't do it this month, again. There's always next month. If everything goes according to schedule I should O on the 21st, which would be a wonderful day to conceive, exactly one year from when we quit smoking, in preparation for a little one

Good luckw ith the tests :
Were in the same boat with the drugs- we only want it if itll definitely help and its certainly a last resort. Thats a wise move

Monday Check in:
Name: nikki
Date: 11-3
Where are you at in your cycle: cd 3
Appointments: no
Symptoms if they apply: only the most normal ppaf yet.. maybe I am getting closer to catching an egg..
Testing: not for a long while
Thoughts: I was feeling quite down due to af coming.. I was thinking of giving up ttc, or atleast the boards.. because as happy as I am for everyone, with each bfp, I get a little bit lower about myself.. but I think it is really nice to have and give support.. so I am sticking around. I am hopeful for this month.. we will see


GOOD LUCK TO ALL!!!!!!

Name: Jennie
Date: 11/3/2008
Where are you at in your cycle: CD21/7 dpo
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply: tender breasts starting way earlier than usual and more painful than usual; why are my temps so weird? Taking Vitex so it is probably just increased progesterone.
Testing: Depends on how long I can hold out.
Thoughts: Ugh, please let this be the month. I am so tired of this limbo.

Name: Angel (Astar326)
Date: 11/3
Where are you at in your cycle: according to FF 7 DPO (FF just changed the crosshairs on me this am - no surprise though, i thought FF was predicting o early)
Appointments: acupuncture wed - but may need to reschedule
Symptoms if they apply: tired, but may be due to yoga & a lot of walking yesterday
Testing: maybe sat. we'll see if FF changes again
Thoughts: :...

sweetieberlin i felt the same way & took off a few months (for me it was only 1 cycle) & I recently returned refreshed & in a more positive place.

Monday Check in:

Name: Sabrina
Date: November 3
Where are you at in your cycle: CD24, 2dpo (after m/c)
Appointments: None
Symptoms if they apply: My CM has totally become dry (after 4+ days of beautiful, shiny EWCM!) and my O pains/pressure have subsided. Now I'm feeling super tired and emotional.
Testing: I'm irrationally tempted but I'm holding off until 10dpo this cycle, so November 11th. I used 16 tests on my BFP cycle a couple months ago.
Thoughts: I really hope this cycle is it for us, or dh and I will have some serious discussing/evaluating the situation to do re: whether to continue TTC or hold off for about 6 months. :

Where are you at in your cycle: CD34 / 11DPO
Appointments: None
Symptoms if they apply: Some cramping (still), and a little sick to my stomach.
Testing: I'm thinking Thursday.
Thoughts: We bought more dollar store tests last night and hubby pressured me into taking one. It was negative - big surprise.. but I was only 10dpo. I had a temp spike this morning, but I'm not sure if it's because I'm coming down with a cold. Got a nasty sore throat yesterday... and still have it today but not as bad.

Where are you at in your cycle: CD 17/ 2 DPO. Waiting for crosshairs.
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply: Just tender breasts letting me know I Oed.
Testing: I think I'll start testing on the 10th. I have a short luteal phase so I don't get a large window to test in!
Thoughts: I'm taking Vitex and extra B6, and crossing my fingers hard. I hope we get a lot of BFPs this month. Also: I can't have any more sex for a while. If an egg was released this month, dammit, we should have caught it!!!!

Alicewyf: Doula, wife to DH, and mama to Lillian (7/09) , Daniel (6/12), and and a new little one joining us in July 2015!

Ha! Alice... I'm so sex'd out that since I O'd, the thought of sex makes me... hmm what's the right word... I just don't want to do it! We did the deed for 6 days in a row before I O'd and even hubby was complaining about needing a break. He didn't get one until I was sure I O'd though. I think he's recoperated, but I'm still "anti touch". Part of that is due to PMS, I think.
