  • poll: When you TTC/get pregnant, is this the age you envisioned while growing up?

    Yes, I always envisioned TTC/getting pregnant at this age.

    No, I am waaaaaaay off!

    I'm close enough!

    This my 5th month using it, and the first time I’ve had this issue. I don’t know what’s going on. The other morning (I think on the 3rd flat temp day of 98.4), I didn’t get (or didn’t hear because I wear ear plugs) the final confirmation beep. I looked at the temp and it was 98.6 (so higher). So then I temped again (a few minutes later) until I heard the confirmation beep and it was 98.4.

    I just charted the 98.4 since that was the one that i know I got a confirmation beep on.

    FreckledFox:  Yes to the opks! When they redid the packaging on the wondfos they must have done something to the opks as well. I never had a problem with them before but I’ve noticed in my last batch they’ve been all wonky. Before, I was able to tell as soon as the dye went across whether it was positive or not but now I have to come back later to look at them. And every single wondfo hpt I’ve taken from the batch gives me an evap. I made my husband take one and used one with tap water and they were both stark white, but mine always have evaps (I’m not pregnant).

    Does anyone have any recommendations for other opks that aren’t wondfo? I might switch when I’m done with this last batch.

    katiz:  I actually switched to “Babi” brand! (also from amazon) I was comtemplating switching back to wondfos if i run out… Not sure though. These have never done this to me before. I’m thinking my pee was diluted most times or something!  And Boo on the evaps! That’s just not cool.  :/

    missfrillycoat:  Hi!!!  *WAVES!!!* Glad you came over to our little chat group! I hope Clomid does the trick for you this cycle and your stay here is short! PS: If you click on your chart link above, on that page on the left sidebar, you can “add nickname”. I’d probably use Frillycoat or something recognizable.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    AFM, I called my OB’s office and got a slightly earlier appointment (2 weeks out instead of 3 weeks).  Hey, it’s the small things!  TGIF.

    Hey ladies, I’ve been MIA while away in Hawaii.  But I’m back now and just wanted to give a lil update on our last RE apt.  I posted in the 1+ thread before leaving but forgot to update you Charters too.  I wish I had better news but I don’t.  DH’s count post wash is super low, with low motility and morphology.  Low enough that we aren’t even candidates for an IUI.  DH is starting on 3 months of Clomid after which we will do repeat SA and hope there has been enough improvment to try an IUI.  IF not, it’s straight to IVF for us.  We both took it hard at first but are coming to terms with it and trying to stay positive that we will see more improvement with the Clomid. 

    I’m debating if I will keep charting for the next few months or not.  I know I ovulate between CD 13-15 so as long as we keeep BDing then (even though our chance of natural cenception is pretty much nil) we should be ok.  Something about not taking my temp everyday at 4:30am seems enticing.  I’ll still keep checking in on you all but probably won’t be as active.

    MrsBananas:  I’m really sorry to hear about the bad news you received. Hopefully the Clomid will help with your DH.

    Urgh ladies, I told myselt that I would not symptom spot but I have failed terribly at doing that today. I’m now 9DPO and for the past 2-3 days, I’ve been having an unsual amount of creamy CM. I have also been checking my cervix for the fun of it in the past week or so and just now I noticed that my cervix seemed higher and softer than the previous days. My first thought was “WTF, didn’t I ovulate 9 days ago?”. Then I Googled it and it could be a sign of early pregnancy. So of course now I’ve convinced myself that I am pregnant and will most likely POAS tomorrow.

    emsy3110:  I said the same thing, and although I’ve done slightly better I’m still doing so. And we’re DPO buddies! I’ve had an usual amount of creamy CM since O too (today was slightly less). My cervix has been moving from high to medium and from medium/softish to firm. I found it in low position last night and thought “oh man” but this morning it moved up again.

    I tried my best not POAS tonight and told myself I’ll wait until Monday but I probably will do it earlier. Yesterday (8 dpo) I was getting periodic light cramps on my right side.

    Oh, and no sign of spotting today (last month I started with light pink and brown spotting on 9dpo) so hoping it stays away!

    vanike:  yay for DPO buddies ๐Ÿ™‚ No sptotting is good! Like you I’ve also had light cramps but that’s something that I get often in my LP so at least that doesn’t add on to my current list of possible pregnancy symptoms! I really don’t think I’ll be able to not POAS tomorrow but at the same time I’ll be sad if it’s a BFN so I’m torn!
