Hey girls!! I would like to join this thread!
I am 32 years old, married for the second time to the best DH! I also have a 9yo boy who is the love of my life. I don't know what has come over me but, the baby bug has bit me pretty hard. DH and I are in our second month of TTC. I am 2 mos. off BC. This is my first month charting. I never knew how much was involved in TTC! I have read the book TCOYF and it has helped me out a ton. I understand so much more than I did before. The first time I got pregnant was purely by chance. I wasn't trying and I wasn't trying to avoid it either.
I am on cycle day 14 today. I'm getting a little frustrated though. For the past 4 days I have been having positive OPKs. I have gone through all the signs and symptoms for Oing. I had EWCM, a high,soft open cervix, breast tenderness and increased sex drive. I believe I O'd b/t cycle days 12 and 13 b/c my cervix closed and my CM changed to creamy/dry. The only thing is...my temp hasn't risen enough for me to say,"oh yeah, I definitely O'd!" if it was yesterday, I believe I timed things pretty good. I am just so confused by all of this and I wish I could tell. I guess i am going to have to go with my gut for now. I keep saying,"it will rise tomorrow,wait til tomorrow." But tomorrow doesn't seem to be coming. I just don't want to have a cycle where I don't O! This is making me so nuts that yesterday on another thread here one of the members had the same thing as I have going on with the OPK's , she took a HPT and got a BFP! So I tried it too. I got a faint line on the first test I took. Then I held my urine for 4 hour w/o drinking and that test came back BFN. If I had gotten pregnant it would have had to have been last month and I figured that I should have enough HCG in my system by now for it to read pretty dark. It wasn't so I want to let that idea go but, then again I got a very dark OPK again this morning and I'm pretty sure my fertile time has passed.
Well, That is about it...sorry for rambling but, it seems like too much is going on here!
