    From the prior thread:


    @pinkshoes:  Hahahaha 🙂 That’s how I feel too about OPKs. I’m waiting to O and being completely impatient. I’ve been annoyed that I have no CM, the OPKs are negative, and I can’t rely on the temps, because I’m sick, but then realized that today is only CD14 and the last four cycles I didn’t O until CD15-16 anyways.

    @Yellow.Clover:  Thank you! So happy to finally join in!

    @lovemygsp:  So sorry about the BFN… Your chart looks fantastic, though! Hopefully it’s just too early to detect it, since you’re only 9DPO.

    @sassyt:  Yay for positive OPK! Even when I wasn’t TTCing I got excited silly over a positive one. 🙂

    Now that I’m finally TTC, I am being insanely impatient waiting to O… Today I finally started seeing some better CM, which made me calm down a bit. The temps are unreliable, because I’m a bit sick, but the OPK is no longer stark white and the cervix is partly open. I’m hoping that I get a positive OPK tomorrow.

    Thanks! Hope you get a positive opk soon!  I’m excited to see a positive opk but my cm still isn’t ewcm…maybe tomorrow? I did get a kick out of seeing ff react to my + opk lol. Such an intense notification lol.

    Roll Call!!

    TTC or TTA:  TTC

    Current Cycle Day:  CD28

    Ovulation Date:  I think CD20, but could have been earlier.

    POAS date/AF due date:  Already peed on sticks… BFN, if AF doesn’t show up by July 1st I might test again.

    Cycles trying: this was our 2nd, going on 3rd.

    Cycles charting: 8 or 9 I think… but only the last 3 are “complete”

    Age (if you want to share): 27, DH 33

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc): We tried BD EOD, but didn’t catch fertile window due to traveling. Took EPO and b-50 up until what I thought was going to be my O date… then kind of forgot the rest of the month.

    For fun!

    When do you make a baby nursery (TTA-ers can dream too I hope!) what theme will it be?

    I want a gender neutral nursery… I’m thinking blueish/grey and yellow, not sure about what other theme it will be though… maybe zoo animals, maybe owls/birds all in coordinating colors. 🙂
    Poll Question:  I want a co-ed baby shower when the time comes… We’ll hopefully be team green so we wouldn’t have a gender reveal.

    TTC or TTA: Back from our vacation and finally TTC!

    Ovulation Date: Should be CD15, but getting over some  jet lag may change that up

    POAS date/AF due date: AF due July 12th or 13th according to FF, so I’ll try not to POAS until July 14th, but I’m not  sure I’ll be able to wait it out. 🙂

    Cycles trying: 1

    Cycles charting: 11

    Age (if you want to share): 30

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc): Prenatals,  getting healthier, BD several times during the fertile time

    When you do make a baby nursery (TTA-ers can dream too I hope!) what  theme will it be? For a boy, we were thinking a nautical/pirate theme. For a girl, my DH really wants black and pink.

    When do you make a baby nursery (TTA-ers can dream too I hope!) what theme will it be? i have a secret board on Pinterest called Baby Fever. I know a few new moms & a few mommy’s to be & they Pin a ton of cool stuff so I’ve been repinning the stuff I like. I’ve been leaning towards gender neutral nurseries, DH & haven’t even talked about whether or not we would find out what we’re having… I think he’d want to know, but I probably shouldn’t assume. =) I’ve been liking the grey + bold colors nurseries. I do know that I’ve stopped decorating my office with my own stuff because I’ve assumed that I’ll get to make it a nursery soon enough. 


    P.S. Is anyone experiencing this *wonderful* west coast heat wave? The thermometer in my car read 108* this afternoon and the weather channel says its 102* right now at 7pm.

    @Utopia4us:  Aww! I’ll talk to you! I’d love to do a woodland theme too. My favorite favorite animal, as in I did my whole masters thesis on them, are moose. When we first started TTC I absolutly had my heart set on a girl but as I started finding more and more woodland/forest/moose!! baby stuff I feel 100% ok with having a boy now too. I even have a secret amazon baby registery I have been saving all the things I love on. One of them is a book called “This moose belongs to me!” SO CUTE!!!!!

    Roll Call!!

    TTC or TTA: TTC

    Current Cycle Day: 25/9DPO

    Ovulation Date:  6/19

    POAS date/AF due date: Ok. So just because I’m having a psychotic break down I POAnotherS this afternoon. At first there was nothing. We went to dinner, came back, and I checked again. And there is a ‘hair darker than yesterday’ line. I’m starting to think I’m probably the only girl who has managed to get evaps on OSOMs. I’m trying to hold it together right now. I go from thinking with the way I feel surely I’m pregnant to thinking, if I feel like this it should be enough to be getting a bfp so I must not be. Sigh. I don’t know why I tortue myself like this. I guess this is the first time in months I thought I might actually have a chance. ANYWAYS. I’ll stop ranting now. 

    Cycles trying: 11

    Cycles charting:10

    Age (if you want to share): 27

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc): All the things plus clomid

    For fun!

    When do you make a baby nursery (TTA-ers can dream too I hope!) what theme will it be? See above but I think I’ll  try and blend a woodland and astronomy theme.
