Ok ladies, let’s start a new thread since our last is well over 600 posts! You can see them all here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/charters-of-the-hive-part-vii (I have no idea how to make this a nice pretty link, or write “here” and have it link properly – forgive my IT ignorance!)
Ok let’s do a roll call!
Cycles TTC: This will be #3 for us
CD/DPO: CD1 !
POAS date: Not sure, hoping end of September.
Current Favorite Song/Book (just for fun!): Pontoon (Little Big Town)/50 Shades of Grey!

Since this is my first cycle actually TTC, finally, I’ll join in the roll call fun.
Cycles TTC: 1!
CD/DPO: CD 37, 18 DPO
POAS date: Depends when AF shows up. POAS this morning, negative. If no AF by the weekend, POAS Saturday before I drink at a wedding that night. Otherwise mid Sept.
Current Favorite Song/Book (just for fun!): Whatever comes on Pandora!
Link to Chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3c2fd1%5D My Ovulation Chart
I’m not sure if I’m sharing my chart correctly, so please tell me if that’s wrong. I’m currently getting very impatient with AF– I’m 2 days past my normal luteal phase, with a negative HPT this morning. It would be very unlikely that I’m pregnant, since we were preventing (mostly), but it’s weird. Has this happened to anyone else? It’s been consistantly 15-16 days for 4 cycles.
ETA– took me 5 tries but I think I linked my chart right!

@StaceyA: Yay! Thanks for starting the new thread!
Cycles TTC: Still in my first. Also first cycle off BCP.
CD/DPO: CD18 waiting for O or O confirmation. (positive OPK yesterday, negative today, but screwed up on temping this morning because I had sex before I could temp! Hopefully tomorrow morning will show a temp spike to indicate ovulation today)
POAS date: Hoping for very end of August / beginning of September
Current Favorite Song/Book (just for fun!): Bruce Springstein – Dancing In The Dark / It’s not my fave, but currently reading Nicolas Sparks’ – The Last Song
Link to Chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3e4eca/
Mood: Horny as hell – likely from coming off BCP.

@MrsPuddingface: Yay O buddy and TWW buddy! Atleast I’m hoping O is kicking around today. Sure feels like it. Also: bow chika wow wow. 😛
Post # 9
@MrsPuddingface: In reponse to one of your last posts on the other thread, YES. I feel like a teenage boy as well. ESPECIALLY around O… The excitement of a baby makes me so…happy =) It has definitely gone down and down with each month that passes, but I started reading 50 Shades, and it made a WORLD of difference. I practically jump on hubby when I see him. Hahaha. I don’t like starting threads very often, I have stage fright…lol…even through the internet. I just get that “all eyes on me” feeling and I don’t like it. I will get the courage to do it someday!!

@ChuckNorris: Well here’s hoping you don’t NEED to start the next one 😉 And I hated 50 shades, BUT for the week I was reading it I was totally feeling overly amorous and aggressive – and I actually hurt him! :S OOPS! All that was while I was on the pill though……this whole no-pill thing has ramped it up about another 20 notches higher than the 50 shades week. I was chasing FI around the living room last night yelling “give me your BABIES!”. I think he was quite scared there for a moment!

Howdy ladies, I was going to post a question on the last thread, but since it was moved, I’ll just do my roll call and ask the question. 🙂
Cycles TTC: I’m in the middle of cycle 7.
CD/DPO: CD16/possibly 1dpo
POAS date: Mmmm, maybe the 26th if I go by dpos, but the 29th if I go by FF’s advice.
Current Favorite Song/Book (just for fun!): I won’t give up (Jason Mraz)/A Bump in the Road

NOW, for my question. Every month I get O pains. Every month, without fail. It changes from the day of the last positive opk, or the day after, or what FF is actual O day. My charting has been sporadic during TTC this second go ’round, but I’m back to it. NOW, here’s the question. I got a pos opk late Saturday night (almost midnight), after the 5 min window. The next morning I got another positive, very dark. Another positive that evening, and unsuccessful sex with the hubs that was time consuming and frustrating. We tried again the next morning (Monday), also unsuccessful. That SMU showed a pos opk result as well. I got kind of hopeful that maybe we could catch it later that night. When I got home from work, yet ANOTHER pos opk (so this is now at least 48 hours of pos opks). I’ve never had this happen before! I got my O pains yesterday evening, and we managed to finally get some successful lovin’ in there. I consider myself 1dpo, based on my history of o pains and opks. However, using “advanced” and “research” settings with my current temps it has me O’ing on Sunday. Maybe ONCE in my time charting (including the 12 cycles with my daughter) did I get o pains after FF said I o’ed, and that time I dispute anyway because the month was all crazy. What is going on there? And I can’t rely on my temps the last two days because the last two nights have been full of tossing and turning and temping at random times because I wake up at like, 4:30. I guess I just hope we caught it last night, and going by OPKS and CM as well as the o pains that I at least have a chance. Hm. guess this isn’t so much a question as a WTH is going on?!?!

This our second cycle officially trying, but my first to start charting so I’d like to join you ladies!
Cycles TTC: 2
POAS date: I am thinking it will be the second week of September (DH and my 1 year wedding anniversary is Sept 10 and my birthday is Sept 12 so it would be so amazing to get our BFP around that time!)
Current Favorite Song/Book (just for fun!): One More Night- Maroon 5 and I love me some 50 Shades of Grey!
Link to Chart: I literally just started charting like yesterday so there’s nothing to see yet!

Hello, everyone! Thanks for the replies in the previous thread. It would totally suck if my thermometer were dying on me already. I’ve only been using it for like 6 weeks. I don’t think it’s dying, but it may have a case of the favorite temps, as cnftw suggested. Anyway, after virtually flatlining for the last 5 days, I had a thermal shift. So positive OPK Sunday, thermal shift Wednesday morning. That seems odd to me, but there you go.
Cycles TTC: T -2 😉 I am not TTC right now. This is all practice and for me to learn more about my body and fertility. Gloves (ie condoms) come off after the wedding in September (the date I posted is not my real wedding date, though)
CD/DPO: CD 15 / 1 DPO
POAS date: Not TTC at the moment, so no risk of pregnancy right now and no need to poas
Current Favorite Song/Book (just for fun!): Not sure about the song, but the book I’m reading at the moment is Carl Hiaasen’s Tourist Season. It’s a mystery.

@Mrs. Kiwi: The same thing happened to me last month (positive OPK’s for like 72 hours). I wasn’t charting at the time though, so I had no way of confirming ovulation at all. From what I’ve read, I think it’s possible you could have ovulated Sunday and still had an LH surge leftover on Monday. BUT since you said your temps aren’t very reliable and based on your pains it is very likely that you ovulated yesterday like you are thinking. I hope you caught it!
