    artichokey:  I mostly did FMU with my OPK’s and I got three +’s in a row, the first and third were both FMU, so know that I know it can show in FMU I’ll just do that this month. I don’t want to have to test at work or wait till I get home to pee! It is tough this first month (I just started charting month two!) when you’re learning it all and wondering if there will ever be a pattern and OMG am I actually ovulating… what if I’m not…OMG.

    ; ) I survived my first month and you will too!

    brighteyedgirl:  thats good to know that you were getting enough info from your normal thermometer for your chart. I will probably see how I go with my thermometer for a couple of cycles and then get a bbt if I’m unsure of my charts.

    HeyJude72:  oh yeah I saw that book pop up on FF today, I may have a look at it. I have been doing the readings and quizzes that are on the FF app to find out more. It does get a little repetitive after a while. I think it’s one thing to read about cycles and charting and then a whole other to actually experience it and know what’s going on down there!

    brighteyedgirl:  safety ratings were our main reason for going for it. the Outback has a super deep backseat as well as a good sized (more useful long than tall) cargo area. It is an automatic but  has that crazy paddle shift thing where you can shift to manual when you want to. DH loves it and thinks it makes the car more fun to drive, I never use it. also has all the time 4WD which turns on and off when it’s needed. That’s great for me because I never do it right when I turn in the 4wd in DH’s truck.

    We got the package with the backup camera, moonroof, and heated cloth seats. It also has the amazing feature of super deep cargo area rubber mat and the plastic on the back of the back seat. Super practical.

    My best friend has a highlander and is upgrading to something bigger because two car seats is cramped.

    we  test drove all of these and found the cargo area and backseat to be cramped: 

    Subaru Forester has a smaller backseat and a cargo area  taller than the outback

    VW Tiguan 

    Nissan Rogue (optional third row seating which would really only work for tiny short people and also takes up all your cargo space) 

    Honda CRV  

    Chevy Equinox

    HopefulSim:  I tried a quiz or two and got distracted and never finished them, skimming the book was more my speed!

    HeyJude72:  Yeah, the Outlander had the all-time 4WD which DH was pretty excited about. We get a crazy amount of snow here in the winter and the past few years with our Civic, it’s been h#ll… trying to drive through 4 feet of snow on unplowed roads isn’t the easiest. Another thing that I thought was cool about the Outlander was it has stadium seating in the back, so people that get car sick can look out the front. DH said it kind of caused problems with his blind spot, though, so we shall see. I’ll definitely bring up the Outback… maybe it’s worth looking into. He’s already ruled out the Rogue and CRV…

    FreckledFox:  You’re so welcome! I’ve brought up the Grand Cherokee, but DH is picky with brands/companies. *sigh*. As for turning radiuses, he was thoroughly impressed with the Outlander… it hugs curves like you wouldn’t believe. Such a smooth ride for an SUV it’s size.

    FreckledFox:  I believe it has AWD, but can switch to 4WD when needed (we’ve seen so many, I can’t keep them straight, though).

    FreckledFox:  It is a lot to take in, but it’s actually been quite exciting. Throughout the years, we’ve only ever bought second-hand, so actually getting a brand NEW car is a fun, new experience for us… even our DD is enjoying it (especially because of the new-found leg room she’ll have, lol). I just wish DH would make a decision, already… I’m quite impatient.

    My temp is STILL elevated today – it went even higher (11dpo).  I hope it stays up.  Not testing again for awhile since my last test was a bfn.  Hopefully AF doesn’t show.

    brighteyedgirl:  I was totally against the outback at first, I didn’t realize how much they have changed over the last few years. I thought they were pretty much for librarians and hippies and I didn’t want a “station wagon”, I wanted a “small SUV.” once we started test driving, I realized how awesome the outback was (it drives like a car not an SUV) and DH declared our other top pick the CRV “lifeless and boring to drive”…the outback just worked for us! And I am totally fine with having a “less hip” car, it’s so damn practical! My only complaint is a pretty hefty blind spot down the passenger side but we got some little stick on circle mirrors for $10 on amazon to fix that problem.

    HeyJude72:  I gathered my FMU today, just to see if that would be concentrated enough. Nope. I didn’t even bother testing it, it was much too clear. I’m a night drinker and a night pee-er. Hahaha! I actually managed a pretty good hold yesterday during the day. I think I’ll just do my best with the OPK for this cycle and see what happens.<br /><br />I think I’m actually pretty relaxed about TTC at this point. I’m very much a details kind of person. We met with a mortgage broker the other day and he actually commented on my prepardness and organization. I just tend to do a lot of advanced research so I know everything I can know before doing something. So I’m reminding myself that I’ve done everything I can do, I know everything I need to know, and everything else will simply work out. If I think of it more like scientific research I feel much calmer. <br /><br />We babysat for my BFF’s 9 month old yesterday. We always have a wonderful time with her but rocking her to sleep was delicious. She’s got cheeks galore. <br /><br />

    Ugh….WB just ate my post.  Here we go again….

    FreckledFox:  Sorry about your BFN this morning but your chart is looking good so hopefully it’s still early.  FX you get a weekend BFP!  FF changed my O day by a day this morning so I’m feeling better about our timing now.

    brighteyedgirl:  DH and I just finished the car buying experience last month.  We both drive sedans right now and had a terrible time this last winter…so the decision to upgrade one of our cars to an SUV was easy!  We ended up with a highlander with all the bells and whistles because like you, we’ve never driven a fancy new car.  So we decided to splurge while we are in a good place financially.  Can’t wait until it’s built and delivered.  Hopefully before the snow flies!

    jouissance:  Elevated temps are a good sign!  FX they stay up and you get your BFP soon!
