I noticed we've gone over 500, so I started a new part. Part XII
Cycles TTC: Two
Ovulation Day: CD15
POAS date: December 9. But I want to do 12/12/12 because that's the day we were first planning on getting married...but I probably won't pee on any sticks this month.
Which option did you choose from the ridiculous poll and why? An original nintendo because they're awesome and it needs no further explanation.

@StaceyA: She sounds terrifying! I would not like to be violated with a camera by someone whose humanity was questionable. You must be brave!!! I'm glad you got some pictures. Make a scrapbook anyway, and then when people ask where the baby was just say, "RIGHT THERE!!! Can you not see it??????" and point at some random place on the picture.
Someone who didn't follow the other thread could be really freaked out by the second post on this board...
@glittermoon: "RIGHT THERE!!! Can you not see it??????" and point at some random place on the picture.
I agree! It would be funny to see who says "oh yea.. now I see it!" lmao
@Woodstock: There's an episode of Friends where Rachel can't see the embryo lol. It goes pretty much exactly like that.
I added a ridiculous poll, because I shouldn't be allowed to do things when I'm in the luteal phase of my cycle, as progesterone takes over my brain and does silly things with it.
I'm not sure if I should do a roll call since I'm just charting and looking for temping and chart analysis help... but I'll post anywyas. If you all want me to not do it just let me know. There's just nowhere else on the bee for anything like this.
Cycles TTC: N/A
Ovulation Day: CD21
POAS date: N/A unless my period unexpectedly does not show up
What are you most excited about for the Holidays? Spending time with hubby. Enjoying our first Christmas together... and my birthday in a few days :)

I almost chose nintendo, b/c they're awesome.. and last forever (I have one and it still works! Go MARIO!) But I went with reindeer because they're awesome as well.. but more awesome.
Cycles TTC: Two officially
Ovulation Day: CD16 then FF changed it to CD18 a few days later. I feel like the 16 was more accurate
POAS date: My cycles are usually 31 days, last was 33 days.. So AF is due around Dec 5th. I ordered 30 preg tests online so I have lots to use so I might start this weekend. Not sure.
Which option did you choose from the ridiculous poll and why? An original nintendo because I love them and wish I still had one

@Woodstock: It's a charting thread, you're welcome to join whether you're trying to get preggers or not. :) You're charting, and that's what the thread is here for. The other stuff is just because a lot of people are charting to ttc. At least that's my stance, lol.
@LyndzJM: I would say you ovulated on CD17. It changed it because it didn't go up very much compared to the later jumps I think. It could be either CD16, 17 or 18. Probably earlier than 18, though. Sometimes temp rises are more gradual. It looks good though :)
Cycles TTC: 3
Ovulation Day: CD11 (or CD12...not quite sure I trust FF completely this month)
CD/DPO: CD23/12DPO (or 11DPO)
POAS date: Tomorrow (eek!)
Which option did you choose from the ridiculous poll and why? An original nintendo. I would have said because they're awesome and it needs no further explanation but that answer's been taken already by glittermoon. So, I'll just say who doesn't love a good old-fashioned game of Duck Hunt?

@LyndzJM: I agree that I think you O'd on CD16 or maybe C17 I wonder if it's not giving you crosshairs there because of the open circle. Is the open circle because you temped at a different time? Maybe play around with it and match the temp to the other days and see if that moves the CHs. Everything seems to point to an earlier day than FF marked, IMHO.
Cycles TTC: still on lucky 13!
Ovulation Day: CD30
CD/DPO: CD 32/ 2dpo
POAS date: December 6-9 possibly, but maybe not?
Which option did you choose from the ridiculous poll and why? An original nintendo because they are indeed awesome. I still play my SNES sometimes!
Link to Chart: I'll post ot tomorrow, I'm on my phone.
@StaceyA, sorry about the troll!! Bummers. But it's ok, I'm sure we'll be seeing a temp spike in the am! =)
@LyndzJM: Ehhh, sorry, but I agree with FF at CD 18. Tough one though!
@hardtoconcentrate: YES! Duck hunt!!
@glittermoon: LOL... you are too funny... thank you for the laugh!
Ok ladies, here we go! Enjoy. I seriously don't know anything about u/s but here are my ovaries. Ovaries.. meet the ladies of the hive.
Cycles TTC: 5
Ovulation Day: Hasn't happened yet.
POAS date: December 25 if I O at a reasonable date. A BFP would be the best Christmas present ever!
Which option did you choose from the ridiculous poll and why? A reindeer so that I could be all magical and fly!

And, in addition!
Cycles TTC: Still on #2 of officially TTC
Ovulation Day: hasn't happened yet!
CD/DPO: CD60... YIKES.
POAS date: TBD.
Which option did you choose from the ridiculous poll and why? I have not yet chosen as I seriously need to weigh all the options... LOL!

@StaceyA: What cute little ovaries you have! Awww. Dear Future Baby StaceyA, you're in there somewhere!!!!! =)
@StaceyA: Soo, those are the girls that have been giving you trouble!!??? Honestly I have no idea what I'm looking at there, but it would be cool to figure it out. Damn why didn't we go to school to be u/s techs? Lol
@Yellow.Clover: @ChuckNorris: yep, these are the trouble makers! I totally wish i had gone through to med school. Could have got this all figured out! Glad i was able to take a FEW pics though, regardless of the poor quality and clear inability to know WTF they are showing! ha ha ha! From what I can compare from google images (oh yes, such sound medical advice from dr.google) they do look like follicles, but it's so hard to tell.... :/. Wish i was able to get some better shots and/or a print out!
@StaceyA: Good ultrasound images of follicles? I think I actually see some follicles. They are like big black jelly beans. My RE pointed mine out.
THANKS FOR STARTING THIS THREAD, GLITTERMOON!
Cycles TTC: 10th TTC, 11th NTNT
Ovulation Day: It will probably be in between December 4-10th.
CD/DPO: CD10 lol how did that happen? Not temping has helped me "lose track" of my cycle! =)
POAS date: December...16th ish. I will begin at 8DPO....lol
Which option did you choose from the ridiculous poll and why? An original Nintendo...because I have an N64 and love it =)

@hardtoconcentrate: the open circles after O were b/c I temped a little late ( I usually temp at 530, but those days I temped just after 6. The open circles before O were from not sleeping well. I moved after O temps to 530 and that didn't change anything. I took out my 'sticky' CM on CD16 and that moved the O date back to the 16th. I find it hard to evaluate CM and also CP I guess it just takes a while to get to know your body.
Thanks for all the input. I found that tracking my temp has really helped keep me sane this tww. Last month I was a crazy person!
woah! There's so many comments since the last one, so if these get confused I'm sorry.
@glittermoon: hahahaha. Funny! You are cracking me up! Scrapbook! lol!
@StaceyA: I'm pretty sure someone coined the term "camera dildo"? Or "dildo camera" I can't remember! LOL. PS. NICE OVARIES!!!! :D
Cycles TTC: 5th!
Ovulation Day: Usually CD12
POAS date: Going to try and wait until I'm late, I say that every month! :) Dec 18 0r 19th (depending on O)
Which option did you choose from the ridiculous poll and why? Nintendo!! Loved that thing!
Link to Chart:
@MrsJuneBee: I try to tell myself every month I'm going to wait too, yeah, doesn't happen. Well actually it's just been the last two cycles that I've been quick at the draw. All the others I never really did POAS, AF always beat me to it!
And my chart link, since I couldn't post it last night: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/yellowclover
I have no idea why my temp was so high this morning, that can't be right!
@Yellow.Clover: yay for another high temp! ;)
I am a little sad/worried as my temp didn't go up yet. It went up a touch but basically only to one of my "normal" temps. Certainly not post O temps. We BD'd Tues/Wed and I honestly don't think either my DH or I have it in us to do it again tonight. Might have to see if we can muster anything up for the AM just in case. :S I know if my temp doesn't go up tomorrow I'm going to be devastated.
@StaceyA: Hello Ovaries! Did you gain any insight from the appointment? I would have never though of an u/s to check things out. *sigh* I'm such a newbie.
Cycles TTC: Two?
Ovulation Day: Dont think it's happened
POAS date: Who knows
Which option did you choose from the ridiculous poll and why? bamboo! It grows like a weed and makes awesome hardwood floors!
Link to Chart: link
@StaceyA: It's okay! It will be up tomorrow! Just watch! : )
@pinkshoes: Oh no, sorry you are another long cycle'er. It really isn't fun! FX you O very, very soon!! Are your cycles normally this long?
@MrsPuddingface: Your temps look lovely my dear!! : )
@Yellow.Clover: Yeah... before BC (which I only took the last 2 years), anywhere from 35-56 days was normal, and a few times as much as 80 days. My doctor said it could be completely normal and didnt really seem concerened. It was great back then when not TTC, few periods to deal with! Now its annoying as hell, espeically since I keep spotting like every two weeks.. Im kind of chalking it up to going off BC. OR should I be worried and see my doc?
@Yellow.Clover: I so hope you are right! I will cyber-kiss you if you are!! LOL!
@pinkshoes: sorry to hear you also have long cycles, they totally suck. The ultrasound techs won't tell you anything, but they send all the results to my doctor. I have gone for a bunch of bloodwork and yesterday the U/S, so I'll try to make an appt for next week to get all the results back. I went off BCP (after being on them for like 12 years) and had relatively normal cycles immediately after (34 and 33 days) and then all hell broke loose with 59/47/41 ish day cycles and now I am CD61 and I am HOPING I O'd in the last day or two. My doctor said a month or two off the pill to regulate can be normal, but in my case (about 10 months off) not normal.I'd say that if you aren't too concerned that you could wait and see what happens, but it never hurts to go see the doctor and request some testing just in case. :)
@pinkshoes: Oh wow, yes, totally not normal. I mean, non-TTC there is no harm in it from what my doctor said, as long as you don't go any more than 3 months without one. But, TTC wise, not normal at all. Since you just came off BC I would give it another month, since this is the second off right? And just see how you adjust. But, given that you were abnormal on BC it doesn't sound right. Keep your charts and show them to your doctor when you go. Let them know you are TTC and you are worried about your cycles. They will run blood work to see what's going on. Hope it gets better very soon!
@hardtoconcentrate: Temp up and no spotting today? WOOT WOOT!!!!!!!
Cycles TTC: 4th, 1st after MC
Ovulation Day: CD19? Still waiting for CH
POAS date: Dec. 6th at 9DPO (I early-test!)
Which option did you choose from the ridiculous poll and why? NINTENDO! I miss playing Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles, Paperboy, and Duckhunt! Though, if it were a choice between oldschool Nintendo and the oldschool Sega Master System, I might choose Sega! Alex The Kidd and Golden Axe Warrior WERE my childhood! ;)

@glittermoon: Thanks for creating a new thread sweetcheeks!
@Woodstock: Don't be silly! OF COURSE you are more than welcome....you're a charter, this is a charting thread! We're glad to have you! ;)
@LyndzJM: Your chart looks lovely - though, I'd say you could possibly have O'd on CD17 instead of CD16. It's hard to tell, but it could have been either. Take that into account if you plan on early-testing, because you may be only 9DPO, not 10. You've got a lovely rise though!
@Yellow.Clover: Your temp spike this morning was FABULOUS!!!!!!!!!!! OMG! Grinning like the cheshire cat over here!
@StaceyA: I have no idea what I'm looking at, but it looks cool! You should blow it up and have it mounted on a large canvas, then hang it on the wall above your bed!!!! TRENDY! Sorry your U/S tech was such a c*cksmoking @sshat! :( And I'm sorry you felt so intimidating by her attitude that you didn't even get to ask the questions you wanted to :( I'd complain about her bedside manner if I were you. I wonder how she acts around women coming in to enjoy the experience of seeing their baby for the first time? I saw your temp rise, and it looks good....don't worry, some of us have gradual temp rises instead of crazy skyscraper rises (*cough* YellowClover *cough*). You should get another nice rise tomorrow morning!!!! Did she even tell you anything? Or did she just take the pictures and run?
@ScottishMrs: I never thought about the flying aspect of owning a reindeer.....I'm having poll-answer-regret.
@.twist.: CAMERA DILDO!
@MrsJuneBee: HIIIIIIIIIIII! XOX
@pinkshoes: Sorry about your cycles :( I'd say wait until you've been trying 6 months and then take your cycle history to your doc. If you only get 2 or 3 cycles out of 6 months of trying, maybe your doc will realize that they could be a bit more proactive with you, and give you a plan?
@MrsPuddingface: What!? We're total pee buddies!! What!?
And thank you! I don't know what to think of that temp though. Seems too high just yet. Meh. I also stalked FF and don't see any charts with temp spikes like that, so idk what to think. Oh well.
@MrsPuddingface: to @StaceyA: crazy skyscraper rises - Ha-ha! I KNOW! I have NO freakin idea what's going on here, unless my crazy O from each side supsicion is right and I've got 50 eggies floating around in there, oh please no! It's NEVER done that before! And even worse, most of the pg charts im seeing lately are small, gradual rises - so depressing!
@MrsPuddingface: c*cksmoking @sshat! ...LOL!! This made my morning. This was exactly what she was! I was thinking the same thing, about how expecting moms must be so angry after they see her.
She just took the pics and told me the results would go to my doctor. Greeeat. Thanks. In the meantime, I'll price out some ovary canvas shots to hang above my mantle....
I so hope you guys are right about the temp rise.... and I am counting down the days until you two can POAS!!!
I'm sorry your U/S experience was shitty :( I hope those cryptic u/s photos turn into great news for you though! And I LOVE @MrsPuddingface: idea of turning them into a canvas. Too hilarious!
Just wanted to pipe up and say that u/s techs can't divulge any info and yes, this even applies to prenatal u/s (well, in Canada at least - it seems to be a lot stricter here). Their job is not to interpret results - that's left to radiologists. For my prenatal u/s they haven't been allowed to tell me anything and I haven't even been allowed to have anyone in the room with me, or see the screen until the last five minutes. Seems to be par for the course in a lot of parts of Canada.
Fills me with angry rage.
@hergreenapples: Ugh, I'm sorry you've had similar experiences but yes - totally the norm here. I've had lots done before (on my kidneys) and they can't tell you anything. Which really, I understand - they don't want to blurt something to a patient and freak them out, or get them excited, only to find out they were wrong.
I DID however think the prenatal appts would be different though, and they'd at least be able to point things out to you and your DH (like "hey, that's the back/head/foot" etc" or at least let you watch. That is awful, it should be such an exciting appt!! :( :( I'm sorry it's been a frustrating experience for you - that totally sucks.
How are you feeling, by the way?! :) We miss you around here!
