Congratulations!! Any pics!? I'm a sucker for bfp pictures!

Wow! Not even a month and we've already had 3-4 pgs! That's an 11-15% pg rate.

Maybe we should plan on having a new thread every month. I like keeping track of graduates each month. It gives me hope. It's not necessary, though, if no one else is interested and it's too much trouble.

Yeah that makes sense. And a "graduates" list isn't nearly so complicated as a comprehensive list of everyone in the thread. It also keeps it a little more casual for the others still.

So for July... Chime in if you've gotten a BFP!! I don't want to forget anyone! I'll start the July thread tomorrow then, so we don't lose another whole day.

Thanks for the congrats!
I took an FRER this morning and it was positive.
I guess I didn't get to whatever for too long.

Seems to work that way for some people.

Seriously!

I ordered my ICs today. 20 should be enough to get me through one cycle.

haha I have one dollarama test. I was -planning- on using that one, and then going out and buying a 'pretty' one to take a photo of/keep. That was before I read here that the digital ones fade, they don't say "pregnant" forever. Boo erms. This is all under the pretense that I'm going to try my darndest not to test until it's just a formality- thus I won't need more than one test.

That's always a good plan, especially when whatevering. I'm a poasoholic. I can't not test. I usually start at 7dpo and use at least 2 a day until shows if there's a chance I could be pg. If I get a bfp, I continue testing for a few weeks.

I'm still waiting on O... could be just about time. Super stretchy EWCM today! My Chart I told SO tonight would be good for trying, dunno what he'll do about it. I don't even care at this point, I just want to see an O!!! I'm on CD57.

This is the kind of person I am, too. I wish I weren't though, b/c my heart broke last cycle w/all those bfns.

With DD, I didn't test after I got my 2 positive tests, one FRER and on digi, b/c I was so afraid that it would be negative. I'm mad I didn't take any more to see them get any darker. My bfp at 11 dpo was so, so faint. Next time I' gonna take a bunch of tests just to see the lines show up!

FWIW, I had 19 ICs at the beginning of last cycle and I only have 8 left now. I'm not ordering more. It really didn't help my mental state having them. They were burning a hole in my drawer!!

jozmom - Congrats on the BFP! That was quick!

AFM: I think I O'ed yesterday. My body has been trying to do it for a few days, but I think it finally did. I had EWCM for a few days, then it went away (probably due to stress) and then it came back. Last night it was more lotiony, so I am thinking today it should taper off. However, my routine with taking my temp really sucks because I didn't take it this morning or the past two mornings. So, hopefully tomorrow I will see my temp shift. I drank this weekend anyways, so I just figured I would skip.

I finished reading TCOYF and I feel like I have a greater knowledge of what I am doing. I also explained a lot to DP, which is neat, because now I feel like he understands me more. So, that's where I am right now.

Are we going to get a new thread?

I wouldn't skip temping because of drinking the night before. The normal number of alcoholic drinks shouldn't make that much difference in your temps. If you drank a lot and weren't up for temping the next morning, no biggie, either. Missing one temp shouldn't make your chart uninterpretable. You can always make a note on your chart of the drinking so that, if things are confusing later, you can go back and change things. There's a box for drinking on FF.
