    lalalalauren:  I think the hardest part about tandem nursing would be telling DS he has to wait until LO was done before he could start! I guess we will see if it ever comes to that!

    Feist:  I just caught myself up on your journey this month. Sorry about AF πŸ™

    lalalalauren:  Not to encourage any crazy talk (jk, obviously…I’m all about the crazy!) but that’s the FIRST thing I thought when I saw your chart too!! Fingers crossed it’s a dip and not a fluke!

    Mrs. Coyote:  Not crazy enough to bring them to work…yet. Haha! I’m also a Stay-At-Home Mom so tests call to me allll day long! I’m going to try to have some restraint, tho! Wish me luck πŸ˜‰

     

    AFM, decent temp spike today and my CM is dried up (TMI? Sorry, I have no filter!) so I think I O’d even though I never got a pos OPK. We were traveling, so I wasn’t very good about testing every 24 hrs even. I seem to remember not ever getting a pos the month I got pregnant with DS either, so maybe I just have a short surge? *shrug*

    lalalalauren:  Um yeah I have a problem remembering the normal population doesn’t talk about stuff like this. Before I was a Stay-At-Home Mom, I worked as a Clinical Laboratory Scientist…where I spent my days testing allllll sorts of body fluids. Poop, pee, blood, sputum, semen…you name it! I’m not the least bit squimish πŸ™‚

    hogoboom2012:  You have a great outlook on TTA! I tell myself “Life is to short to be wishing it away” all the time…DH works out of state and is gone two weeks, and sometimes they can get long when I’m home all alone with DS. Have to remind myself to stop and enjoy what is in front of me!

    Mrs. Coyote:  GL to you!  I hope no symptoms are good symptoms. This TWW is really a killer for me. I can’t wait nail it’s over, one way or another.

    hogoboom2012:  Thanks!  I’ve had some great soreness late last night and on and off today.  I’ve had some fatigue, but that ones a hard one for me because 20 3 year olds will wear you thin no matter what. I hate wishing this next week away if I do get my keeper this month, but I really hope this next week goes by quick.  I’m not temping until Monday, so no signs from that. It sounds like you are having a nice time off from your TTC break.  Its great to give your head a rest from all the ups and downs and to have that time to refocus.

    Well I caved and tested this morning (10 DPO). BFN. I feel stupid for testing this early, but I’m preparing myself that we’ll most likely be moving on to cycle 4. The silver lining is I will be able to drink at my girlfriend’s bachelorette party in early August and not have to worry about hiding the fact that I’m not drinking lol.

    No good update from me, either, ladies. Temp dropped quite a bit this morning, so I didn’t test. I think AF will be here tomorrow. I’m ok with it. Just glad to have some answers and anxious to get started on this next cycle.

    howsweetitis:  Haha, that screen shot is hilarious! I have to admit that I check my EDD for every new cycle.

    lalalalauren:  Oh my gosh! Your house blog was awesome!!! What a transformation. Also, I’m pretty sure you live/grew up near me (wow, I sound creepy). I’m in the Chicago western suburbs πŸ™‚ And that dip on your chart certainly looks promising as an implantation dip!

    MattieK:  I’m recommending SMEP to DH this cycle. Might as well try something new!

    Feist:  Aww Feist. I’m so sorry. I’ve been thinking of you much and chart stalking you this TWW. We’ll almost be cycle buddies, unfortunately. I have high hopes for your next cycle though!

    bees_knees:  A temp spike and dry CM- sounds like you Oed! I don’t have you on FF, so I can’t chart stalk you, but it sounds good!!

    hogoboom2012:  I love this update from you. It sounds like you’re in such a great spot TTA this cycle!!! I’m slightly jealous of your peaceful attitude about life right now!! I’m going to try to take some cues from you. πŸ™‚

    Mrs. Coyote:  Booo BFN! I’m still hopeful for you!! Fingers are still crossed!

    bees_knees:  My Dear Daughter was born April 10, 2014 (1 week late).   I am still nursing 2-3x a day as well.  My luteal phase has been short though, average 9 days but when I was pumping at work it was as short as 7 one month!  I am not TTC yet, just charting to avoid so I’ve been quiet as not much is going on with me.  I’ve got crazy baby fever though probably because if I got pregnant now they’d be 2 years apart…I’ve been trying to hold off until next March but we’ll see if I can make it lol.

    ruby26:  Ugh I’m so annoyed about your temp drop but who knows, I’m not counting you totally out yet. So don’t lose total hope. And thank you! It was a ton of work but we absolutely love our home and neighborhood! PM me where you live!! I live in the western burbs too! LOL So funny!!

    Mrs. Coyote:  Don’t feel stupid for testing at 10DPO, I’m 8DPO tomorrow and however much I say I’m going to wait to test I will probably cave because my self control for POAS is very minimal. Hoping your BFP is only a day or 2 away! According to FF the majority of BFPs aren’t until 13DPO, although I’m not sure what kind of test they’re using?

    kes18:  I miss nursing so much! That probably sounds crazy to a lot of people but I really loved it and luckily it came easy for me. If I conceive this cycle our kids will be almost exactly 2 years apart. So we will see! I would be okay with them being 3 years apart too that’s what all my siblings and I are but DH was antsy to get started! It’s so hard to see/hear about other people’s pregnancies and babies when you have baby fever! GL to you!!

    Checking in again from vacation – currently driving through the Redwood National Forest with limite cell service. Just got a message from my RE. My AMH came back at 0.16, so coupled with low AFC and high FSH, I have DOR. (So many acronyms!) Feeling pretty bummed. Since my blood work was all screwed up on CD3 last time, I have to get estrogen levels redrawn this next cycle if pregnancy doesn’t occur now. Dr. is also planning to up my femara to 7.5. Does anyone have suggestions, research, etc re: meds for IUI with diminished ovarian reserve? If I weren’t on vacation, I would be researching the shit out of this – but I’m trying to enjoy our last few days.
