No, babies are great -- god knows we're lucky with our family situation and really could have another with no trouble. . . I just REALLY don't want to yet

Found my $ store test - BFN. But I guess if I DID get pg on CD 20 then I'd only be 11 dpo -- still, it would probably show, right -- there's not even the faintest of faint lines so i can relax, right?

( I know, you've been saying to relax but I'm now officially at my longest LP ever, and 3 days longer than average -- it makes me cagey (especially since I just got a Diva Cup and wouldn't THAT be ironic?)

Yes. The egg only lives for 12-24 hours after O, right? I don't have my book so I can't look up the exact timeframe. It takes a few hours after O for temps to go up so by the first day of the temp rise, the egg is most likely dead. A pg can happen but it's very unlikely.

Beth ~ 11dpo is early for most women to get a BFP. It would be very unusual if you were pg and did not get a BFP at 14-15dpo. No matter how I think about your chart, I think it's correct. The much longer lp is strange, though.

AFM, I got crosshairs! I'm going to post both my charts so you can tell me what you think since FF and Ovusoft gave me different O days. I think it's rather humorous. I've got FF set to Advanced.

MW - I'm inclined to think FF is right based on CM...but I dunno. Are you willing to say that low temp is a fluke from the ibuprofen?

Ladies - I Just realized it's July already! I've been spending all of my spare time sleeping latey (when I'm not at work) and overlooked the fact that July would be here mid-week. I generally like to go back through and verify everyone has been added, I am not going to have time to do that today though.

I will start the new thread up (working on it now), please if you are new can you please make a post in the new thread to be added, and if anyone has any details they need added, again please add it to the new thread and make it nice and bold so I can find it.

Sorry again, the exhaustion has set in.

Onwards to July

Nope, I'm more likely to say the higher temp was a fluke. I put more importance on temps than I do on CF.

OK, ladies. Someone really needs to step up and take over this thread for the pregnant lady. Who is it going to be? Don't make me come to your house!

I'm more likely to agree with CD 22 as O date for this one, my CM doesn't always show O when temps do so I agree with placing the importance on temps rather than CM.

If someone will step up and take it, maybe we could swap out - I'll make the new thread July Part1 and then partway through the month we can have a July Part2. Just

Can you PM me your email address? It's not terribly complicated but I do have an excel file I can send you to track things.

Wow. Fancy, schmancy. When I did it, I just copied and pasted the format from the first post.

When WWC was doing it (I took over when she was moving) she sent me a file she used to track who had posted every month. Nothing terribly fancy

All you have to do to check who's posted for the month is click the Replies number listed next to the thread on the Family Planning page.

I could've sworn I told WWC that when she took over the thread. I think she took it over from me. Maybe she was keeping track further back than just one month. When I first joined this group, I think anyone who posted in the previous 3 months was kept in the group for the next thread. Most people who want to stay a part of the group post at least once each month, though, if just to say they are still here.

I took over the thread from you and no, you never told me that trick! But yeah, I think we were keeping track to 2 months at that point. I think WWC took over from me.

I know I took over updating and all, but w/o being able to update that first post w/ppls names and chart links, I'm not sure I have much of a job to do. Maybe if we get a bunch of new ppl, I'll start a part 2? It's early and my mind isn't really working too well yet. Any ideas of what would be easiest?

I think we can wait until the end of the month? Or if it gets crazy we could always do a July Part2 thread. I'll try and do updates on weekends for now so that it doesn't fall to far behind.

Well, I know I told someone. I remember because I remember wondering what was so involved about keeping up the thread when checking who posted was so easy.

Carrie ~ Why can't you update the first post? Did we lose the formatted first page along the way of switching people to take over?

OT: I'm afraid I may have a virus or something. My security s/w stopped working yesterday and wont' update or anything. Then the font on my email shrank so small that I can barely see it and I can't change it back. It is tiny. Anyone know anything about that and/or how to fix it? I tried the security s/w website but it won't do anything because it can't communicate with my s/w so I sent a technical request. It's CA security, by the way.

That's how I understood it, but maybe MW has some other tricks we don't know about.
