“Patience: To wait with certainity; the art of allowing life to carry you.” – Chinese Proverb
Well ladies, enough people have mentioned it so I think it’s probably time to get our July POAS Club started. We had a LOT of happy June graduates – who is up for beating that record?
The proverb above was my favorite of a collection of quotes about patience (a virtue I don’t possess, and I suspect many of you feel the same), in the hopes that I can carry that with me for the next two weeks ….
My OPK was just about positive this afternoon. So O is just around the corner, which puts my POAS right about July 1st or 2nd. And I suppose my cycles are so short that I’ll probably get two shots at this in July.
Anyway, HAPPY BD-ING TO ALL!!!!

I’m hoping I’ll be able to POAS in July! I had an early miscarriage at the beginning of this month and I have my fingers crossed that it won’t be too long until I ovulate. I have PCOS so my cycles are typically pretty long and irregular, and I’ve only had 2 cycles since going off birth control in March, so I really have no idea what to expect. But here’s to hoping!

@iRun2004: LOVE the quote! I (like you) have little patience but I’m working on it:) Thanks for starting the new thread! I am CD1 today so I wont’ be testing until the very end of July but I’m in!:)
@jodyblair: I’m so sorry to hear about your loss:( I had an early loss in February so I know how difficult it can be. Do you chart/track symptoms or CM? I know that I ovulated about 3 weeks after my MC, but I had a methotrexate shot so that may have interferred with the “natural” process. I’m travelling to Atlanta next week for work (I see you live there) any suggestions on places to eat/visit??

@MRSLMA: I don’t chart but I do track CM and symptoms. I haven’t noticed any indications that I’ll be ovulating soon, but I’m anxiously checking daily. We were technically NTNTC for the last few months, and after our loss, we decided to actively TTC. Since it’s still early in the TTC process for us, I’d like to hold off on OPKs and charting. We’ll see how long that actually lasts because I’m pretty type A and like to be in control of things and know exactly what is going on. But I do think it will help deal with the loss to start TTC.
As far as places to eat or go to in Atlanta, do you know where you’ll be staying? Midtown, downtown, Buckhead? The Coca Cola Museum and Georgia Aquarium are downtown and right next door to each other and they’re a lot of fun to visit. Atlanta has tons of great places to eat, so it just depends on what part of the city you’ll be in. For a fun lunch or dinner spot, there’s a new food truck park that just opened up that I have been dying to visit. Let me know what area you’ll be in and I’d be happy to give you some more suggestions. I love Atlanta.

July! I love July. (My b’day month!)
I don’t think I’ll be POAS in July (prob August) if we do IVF again, but I want to come cheer you all on again. 🙂

I think I’ll jump in on this thread. Started NTNT in January, BFP at the end of March, MC at 8 weeks, TTC since May. I’m on my second cycle post MC and should be due to ovulate in the next few days.
@jodyblair: @MRSLMA: Sorry to hear about your losses ladies. Hopefully we’ll all get BFPs soon.
@iRun2004: Maybe we’ll be TWW buddies!

Informally checking in here… I’ll lurk [okay, I’ll be honest, I’m stalking some of you 😉 ]. I’m currently on CD34. My next test date (if this cycle were remotely normal) will be July 18. Baby dust and lots of luck to you all.
Post # 9
@ChuckNorris: Hopefully you can stay a lurker/stalker because you get a BFP!
Post # 10
@jodyblair: I’m going to be downtown- the aquarium sounds fun… might have to try that:)
@ChuckNorris: any updates? I’m with @MsWasatch: hoping that you get your BFp and stay a lurker:)

I’ll join here, I hope! CD44 today with no O detected. Dr’s appt scheduled for Monday to hopefully induce AF. If everything smooths out a little nicer than last cycle I hope to be joining you ladies sometime in July. Let’s see if we can break June’s BFP list! 🙂
Good luck to all the bees!

Welcome everyone to the July thread!!! *secretly excited that I got to start one*
I got my smiley face OPK yesterday. We BD’d the night before, but I could tell DH was NOT in the mood last night, and after the fight we had last cycle on this topic I didn’t want to force the issue. No temp spike this morning so FX that I haven’t O’d quite yet and that we have one more chance for BD tonight. Though maybe Sunday night was enough …..
Anyway, I assume that O is sometime today so tomorrow is 1DPO. TWW here I come!!
Post # 13
@MRSLMA: Thanks 🙂
@StaceyA: Really hope your doctor puts an end to your crazy long cycle.
@iRun2004: The wait begins!
I had a temp spike this morning, but I don’t want to get my hopes up until my chart confirms O. So I’ll continue my every other day BD routine, until I’m positive.

I’m in. Today is CD7. I should POAS somewhere around the 10th, I think. My husband is getting his SA done today.
Post # 15
@Tessarie: Welcome! Good luck with the SA.

Welp, it looks like I *might* be Oing later than usual (according to my OPK this morning at least) and 12DPO (if I were to O tomorrow like I thought) would be July 2nd, so I’ll drop in here to say hi!
I’m not temping, just taking some OPKs and letting FF predict my cycle based on my history, but let’s hope for something good for everyone!
@Mrs. Jaguar: Hanging in there pretty lady? I know you had a long cycle last time…is your AF over yet?
