    hogoboom2012:  I did.  It was a BFN, 11dpo.  I’m sorry your having trouble with your insurance.  Hopefully you will get your BFP before Jan and not need to pay OOP!  Have you tried accupunture?  I haven’t but I’ve heard good things.

    kes18:  Sorry about the wonky cycle! I also remember reading about counterfeit wondfos but like Arielmerms, can’t remember if it was the OPKs or HPTs.

    mrsozzybee:  sorry bee, maybe you’re just ovulating later than usual this cycle? Has there been anything different or stressful around your usual O time? It could just be delayed.

    luxelove:  that’s a great spike! I would use the temp corrector too but I’m betting there’s probably still a pretty good jump in your temps!!

    MattieK:  Your temperatures look great girl! Hopefully the clomid did the trick and you’re on your way to a BFP!

    hogoboom2012:  sorry about the insurance coverage and the BFN. You’re right though, January isn’t that far away. I’m hoping it’ll happen for you before then and you won’t need to worry about it! I did POAs this morning, thanks for asking πŸ™‚ . It was a BFN. There’s always next cycle right?

    MissCorgi22: sorry about your BFN lady, I got one too. FX that it’s just too early for you!

    AFM, I’m still wondering if I actually did ovulate. Almost all of my temps during the TWW have been lower than the temp I had 1dpo. Is that normal?  FF still has dashed CHs but actually lowered my coverline from 36.14 to 36.05 today. Weird! 

    Anyways I hope everyone has a very happy halloween!

    MrsMellyBean:  The only thing thats different is that it’s my first month off the pill. So my body most likely just needs time to “remember” what to do. I did buy some Wondfo OPK’s and did one today just for the thrill of POAS. Got a very faint line next to the dark control line, which I realize is a negative. On CD26 today so I’m pretty hesitant to do 1-2 per day since I’m pretty certain if I was going to ovulate I would have by now. I have been mildly cramping for past 2 days now and it feels like AF is coming so I dont want to waste my OPKs.

    Hello bees πŸ™‚ I need to sit down and catch up properly but I am hoping in the meantime you might help me to understand what’s happening with my ovulation..

    My chart right now looks like this:

    All of of my previrus OPKs have looked like this:

    But todays test looked like this:

    So do you think I have ovulated? Or am I ovulating now? Or would you predict another temp spike tomorrow & a more positive test?

    FF predicted today as my O day, I guess it was pretty accurate?

    luxelove:  I don’t think it’s quite positive yet. I’d try again tonight if that was from the morning, or if not, tomorrow morning (SMU is supposed to be good for opks.) Now, you won’t ovulate until 12-36 hours after you get a positive. Also, have the sex today.

    Feist:  thank you! That’s what I was hoping as we will BD today, tomorrow & the next day. So that will be four days in a row & hopefully that will keep us in a good place.

    I’m sure I’ll have less questions if we do this again next cycle. I really appreciate the help πŸ™‚

    AF showed up (with a vengenace) this morning.  Trying to focus on the positive (i.e. it’s on Sunday so after church and our leadership meeting I can go home and try to sleep off the cramps, cycle days will now match calendar days and the longest cycle I’ve had to date is finally over).  I’m really, really hoping that the double Femara dose will be what we need.  Tentative POAS would be sometime over Thanksgiving weekend and a BFP would be absolutely amazing!

    So maybe all the good vibes from you AWESOME ladies are working. I did a wondfo yesterday just for giggles and there was a faint line near the test line. I just did one today and the line is darker than it was yesterday!! Going to test tonight and maybe twice tomorrow and see if you ladies were right and I am just ovulating late!! FX!!!

    hogoboom2012:  Sorry about AF

    On my fifth day of progesterone. Yesterday and today it’s really been taking it out of me. Everything is exhausting. I take my dog for a walk and then fall asleep.

    Feist:  Are you taking the progesterone orally? That’s when the progesterone made me feel the worst. Once I started taking it as a suppository all the side effects subsided.

    Ladies, how do you add text to the title of your chart. All charts default to the blue writing that says “fertilityfriend.com” but if I want to label the chart something else how do I do it? I’ve tried the chart annotator but that’s not right.

    leahdany:  No I’m on suppositories. The first three days I was fine though with strong cramps (but I have an amplified pelvic pain condition so I feel it all x10 so that was expected.) Now the cramps have lessened today but the exhaustion is horrible. I’m also on Estrace which is probably contributing as well. I feel like such a wuss that I’m having such a strong reaction.

    hogoboom2012:  sorry friend πŸ™ I hope you enjoyed your post church nap, and I think a thanksgiving BFP sounds just perfect πŸ™‚

    Feist:  I’m sorry the progesterone is stealing all your energy, and I wouldn’t feel like a wuss, taking hormones sucks, and I can onky imagine how a pelvic pain condition would exacerbate the suckiness. Hopefully the progesterone proves to be worthwhile is another week! How are you doing so far this cycle – excited? You waited so long for an opportunity for sperm to meet egg! 

    AFM, just got back from a really wonderful weekend in Boston  with some of my good friends from grad school. Its so nice to just sit and chat with these ladies, we have been through a lot together, and known each other for 7 years now — it really gave me a mental health boost. Getting CD21 progesterone tested to see how clomid is working tomorrow, so hopefully the good vibes carry through the week!
