@MrsPuddingface:  From the previous thread…I agree. I can understand because I didn’t know anything about anything when I first joined, but then over time I realized that it can just get tiring over there. But that’s why I’m here! You lovely ladies :)

@ScottishMrs:  Great idea on that BFP thread!

@krystallite:  I was wondering where the heck you were! I was checking out your chart earlier, and I actually think you already Od – on CD22. If you get another high temp tomorrow you’ll get CH. Your sore nipples is what convinced me – I always get that after O! ;)

@MrsPuddingface: I’m here! And thanks for checkin me out *wink*. I know, I was thinking the same thing! It looks like CD22 was the day. I had sore nipples my last cycle too, but it was right before O. Doesn’t make a difference, as long as I O I guess! Although I must admit, I’d rather it be in a day or 2 so I can get in more BDing!

@MrsPuddingface:  in response to your post from the last thread:   Yay! We’re rounding up quite the Disney posse here! ;) And…how big is your DH, if you don’t mind my asking? Mine is 6’4″ and 300lbs. He’s not so wide as he’s just big everywhere. I wondered how that would work on rides.


My DH is 5′ 11′ and 300 lbs. he carries his weight in his belly (the front). We had no problems with any of the rides in Disney World, but DH was quite upset the day we went to Universal because he couldn’t go on Rip It Rock It, The Hulk, Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey (though we did go through the queue because it’s a really cool queue), and he just got depressed and gave up at one point. He was able to go on Spirderman, Jurassic Park, and The Mummy (or scorpion king? i can’t remember which).

Before going any further, I want to say how glad I am to be joining a group of really supportive and helpful women. I’m not yet actively ttc, but in my heart the journey has already begun. Does that sound cheesy?  P.S. I noticed that some of you kindly sent me friend requests on FF. I am not accepting them, only because I am on a limited time full feature for free offer that is set to expire tomorrow. 

Cycle Day and Cycles trying: CD21, 5 more cycles until we try

Age (if you care to share):  26

Chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/403fbb

Estimated POAS date: N/A

Issues if any: I have low BBT. I had a blood test and apparently my thyroid hormone levels are within the normal range. 

How are you going after your BFP (supplements, BD timing, etc): We are still waiting to TTC, but I have begun to take folic acid supplements and surrepticiously purchased a package of Preeseed already.

For fun, what’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not on weddingbee?: I love to relax with DH after work!

@ScottishMrs: great thread that got stickied! I also saw @MrsPuddingface: ’s thread got stickied too! which is a great addition for the new ttc’ers (or gals that just want to know how their body works) I wouldn’t mind the charters getting stickied along with the poas, but we’re all active enough to keep them up top and there’s already a lot of stickys.

Cycle Day and Cycles trying: CD33/13DPO 3rd cycle charting/tta’ing

Age (if you care to share): 24 DH is 28

Chart:

http://www.tcoyf.com/members/cricket88/charts/3.aspx

Estimated POAS date: If AF doesn’t come tomorrow… I’m busting out a test for Friday. But only because DH and I may have jumped the gun by a day :-/ I’m 99% positive we’re fine, my temp is down 2 days in a row and I’ve been a little crampy… but yea we’ll see. 

Issues if any: none I don’t think. Other than the fact that it appears that my O date tends to be later than the ‘average’ day 14-15.

How are you going after you BFP (supplements, BD timing, etc): N/A

For fun, what’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not on weddingbee?: Hiking, swimming, outdoors stuff, and hanging with my puppies (and Dh too lol)

Hi charting ladies! This is my first month charting, but I’m a convert :)  

Roll Call:

Cycle Day and Cycles trying: CD 23, 3rd cycle (but this is screwy because of MC, so 2nd actively trying)

Age (if you care to share): 24

Chart: 

Estimated POAS date: 13th (AF due date)

Issues if any: MC in December

How are you going after you BFP (supplements, BD timing, etc): BD during fertile time as determined by OPKs and CM

For fun, what’s your favourite thing to do when you’re not on weddingbee?: Spending time with DH and DD, movie nights and reading! 

To more experienced charters, how is my chart looking for a BFP this month? Is it possible that the temperature dip on CD 18 is an implatation dip? Had a BFN this morning, but I’m only 9 DPO so I’m not getting too down in the mouth about it.

Edit: Just figured out that pesky linking problem haha.
