The next month it remained at 9 days, and the 3rd month my LP suddenly jumped to 11 days, I was so excited! </strong></p>

<p>No stressing here... CD 16, 1DPO, my online ordered Christmas gifts started arriving & we are cutting down a tree this weekend, so I can't wait to start wrapping! Spent my day off with my sister and beautiful niece, now going to relax and read while DH studies, he has a big test Monday, so he can stress, not me! I think I will take you girls 2ww advice and get a mani/pedi next week to pass the time!</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>ETA: Help! I thought I O'd yesterday, or Monday... I had EWCM but it was more like a creamy color... then all day it seemed to just be like a little watery, but more so dry... now I just checked and it is more of a clear EWCM... I have had a little cramping on and off since Monday night, anyone had this happen before??</p>

<p>I have had similar experiences Cait. I wouldn't worry about it too much if you are BD'ing on a regular basis.</p>

Ok guys, I'll admit it, I'm freaking out right now!<br><br>
My normal LP is 10 days, I'm 11dpo and no sign of AF. I got bad cramps Monday night and Tuesday morning but nothing came of it. My cp is high and tight and cm is super wet/creamy, I keep on running to the bathroom expecting AF to have started! Not even spotting... I promised myself not to test till Sunday, but I don't know if I'm going to make it! I'm just ready for this 1.6yr wait to be over....<br><br>
Even if AF does show tomorrow, <img alt="joy.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/joy.gif"> for a longer LP!<br><br>
Question: Does anyone temp vaginally? I'm considering giving it a try b/c my temps have freaky and I mentioned it to dh and he made the comment of 'oh, that's probably b/c you sleep with your mouth open' GAH! Seriously? You couldn't have told me this earlier? Men...<br><br>

<p>HAVE A GREAT CONCERT MUSICOHOLIC!!  You are soo calm - it's going to be fantastic.  Do they say, "Break a Leg" down under?  <img alt="orngtongue.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif"></p>
<p> </p>
<p>OH BOY - Moonfireglow - I got a little excited - I hope you have every reason to test on Sunday.. <img alt="goodvibes.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/goodvibes.gif"> And I had to laugh at the "men" comment <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif"> I must say that phrase at least once a week.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>And if I had symptoms like you do Cait, I would BD just a little more - doesn't hurt, ya know?  But you probably got it covered. <img alt="fingersx.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/fingersx.gif"></p>

<p><span style="color:rgb(128,0,128);">Thanks Taxlady  <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/smile.gif" style="">  It should be fun at least (last year's was quite formal, held in a "proper" theatre etc etc...  this year every class is doing a performance piece followed by a Christmas song for the audience to sing along to...  with some soloists and small groups mixed in).  And yep, we say break a leg - but the way my luck is running it'd probably happen!  (Teaching my 8th graders to jive for the concert - they're doing Rocking around the Christmas Tree - and I've torn my left calf muscle (same place I did during the nutbush last year <img alt="lol.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border-top-width:0px;border-right-width:0px;border-bottom-width:0px;border-left-width:0px;">....  and my right achilles.....  small tears, but enough to make walking interesting!! <img alt="banghead.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/banghead.gif">  <img alt="lol.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/lol.gif"> )</span></p>

<p>Weekend Check-In</p>
<p>Name: Lofn</p>
<p>Date: Dec 02</p>
<p>Where are you in your cycle: Taking a break, starting again after the fifth.</p>
<p>Symptoms if they apply: None</p>
<p>When are you thinking of testing: After the next clomid attempt.</p>
<p>Thoughts: Trying to take my mind off of this while I'm out of town. Not doing as good with it tonight as I had been.</p>
<p>Appointments: Psych and PCP on the sixth and mid Dec</p>
<p>Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc: Not really.</p>
<p>Do you have any stress triggers: Husband hasn't called me at all since I've been out of town. I'd prefer to hear his voice just a little more than this. :(</p>
<p>What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle: Getting out of the situation for a few days is such a relief. I'm away from moving, from husband, from family, from doctors,,,I'm free to talk about stuff that isn't pregnancy, for example, my music. I'm hoping this is what I needed to recover my songwriting abilities.</p>
<p>Partners feelings if applicable: I don't know. I can't tell if he's busy or avoiding me. Worries me though, :(</p>
<p>Plans for this weekend: Gay bar maybe? lol All I know is my BFF better get his drink on with me!! It'll be our last chance for a while.</p>

<p>Sourire - I agree with Taxlady, you pic is BEAUTIFUL!  You made a lovely bride!  And yay for the longer LP. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>musicoholic - Good luck on the concert!  I'm sure it'll be fantastic.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>moonfireglow - Fingers are crossed for you! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>cait - As long as you think you have EWCM, I'd keep BDing!  Like the other ladies said, it sure can't hurt.  Good luck! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>objet_trouve - Sounds like you have a fun weekend in store! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>AFM - Totally not stressing right now.  But, I'm just waiting to O - not exactly a stressful part of the cycle.  :) </p>
<p> </p>

<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p><span>Weekend Check-In<br>
Name: Jeri<br>

Where are you in your cycle: 7dpo<br>
Symptoms if they apply: I'm peeing a ton... but that's normal for me.<br>
When are you thinking of testing: I dunno, probably the 8th or so if my temp doesn't fall.<br>
Thoughts: No thoughts... just riding this one out.<br>
Appointments: Nope<br>
Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc: Did 120 mg soy days 3-7, mucinex up until O, 81mg baby aspirin and just a regular multi-vitamin<br>

What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle: Not answering the phone when they call and skipping family outings... haha.<br>
Partners feelings if applicable: I don't know... haven't seen him in like a month. He's been working like crazzzzzzzzy lately! It's a wonder we got in all the BDing we did!<br>
Plans for this weekend: Grocery shopping, Christmas shopping, Grandpa's 80th birthday party, and enjoying having all 4 kiddies at home! :)</span></p>

<p><span>Weekend Check-In (a day early)<br><strong>Name</strong>: Valerie<br><strong>Date</strong>: December 2, 2010<br><strong>Where are you in your cycle</strong>: CD11 - still waiting to O<br><strong>Symptoms if they apply</strong>: Some odd cramping today, but nothing more.  Finally stopped spotting from the HSG<br><strong>When are you thinking of testing:</strong> Not until I finally miss a period... sigh...</span></p>
<p><span><strong>Thoughts</strong>:  Currently I'm just excited about O-ing... that's the fun part! <br><strong>Appointments</strong>:  Had a very unpleasant HSG earlier this week, now waiting for blood work in a couple of weeks.<br><strong>Any new regimes, ie herbs, medications, mantras etc: </strong> This is my first cycle on Clomid, and nothing else.  Trying to see what that'll do to my body. </span></p>
<p><span><strong>Do you have any stress triggers</strong>:  Doctor appointments!  At my last two appointments, I've been diagnosed with LP defect and a blocked fallopian tube, so I feel like every time I go, there will be a new ailment! <br><strong>What is working to help you be stress-free this cycle</strong>: Holding on to the hope that the Clomid and HSG may actually have positive effects.<br><strong>Partners feelings if applicable</strong>:  Still super supportive, and relieved that we at least know what might be causing the problem. <br><strong>Plans for this weekend</strong>:  Going to Wilmington to watch my DH in a soccer tournament, and BDing away!  Come on eggie! </span><br><br>
