@bunny: Oooh Bunny! That looks very promising 🙂
@bunny: Oooh Bunny! That looks very promising 🙂
I got my temp spike this morning, which is super exciting. I keep trying to post my chart, but I get kicked out every time I hit submit.
ANYHOW, its pretty exciting. Just waiting for confirmed O, but I’m pretty confident that this is it! CD34 begins the TWW!
@hergreenapples: Did you do B6 alone or as part of a B-complex? I’m on CD1 now and starting B100 Complex. I need my LP to lengthen – so encouraging to see that it worked for you!
My chart this past month looked so promising….until last night when AF arrived.
@StaceyA: Honestly, I don’t know what I’m doing anymore. When I woke up today (about an hour before my temp taking time, I was 97.1 degrees. However, I noticed that my arms were both uncovered (every other day, I had been warm and snuggly in bed completely. I went back to sleep and took my time an hour later – 97.9. UM?
This has been happening a lot lately..I get big differences in an hour.
I just woke up really sad today about it all and had a pitty party all morning at work. I feel like AF is on her way.
@bluewolverine: I’m just taking B6, but I’ve heard great things about B complex as well. I chose just to take B6, as I get a lot og B12 in my diet and didn’t think I needed more – although my understanding is that B vitamins are water soluble, so if you get more than you need you just pee out the excess. Good luck to you!
I was a little down the other day when I saw my temp drop at 8 DPO, but then when AF didn’t come for a couple more days and I realized my LP was one day longer after just a month of B6 I figured that was a pretty good outcome so far!
FF was right — I finally got my period last Thursday!! So, it only took five months and one round of provera to start working again. Hopefully I keep working. It would be nice to put my charting skills to some good use (avoiding, for the time being).
@redsmarties: congrats on the big O!
@luli29: Ugh. That is frustrating. Maybe just having your arms up made your temp drop? That’s a tough one. 🙁 I will keep my fingers crossed anyways – who knows. If this isn’t our month we can hold hands and move into May together LOL. Pity party commence!
I don’t feel any different than usual. No sore boobs, no food aversions, etc etc… no idea. Still holding a touch of hope. :S
@bluegreenjean: I think next month I just have to set my alarm to 6. For some reason, I just keep waking up an hour before I’m supposed to! I bet I’ll start waking up at 5 when I want to start temping at 6. Its probably my nervous knowing I need to wake up and temp! 🙁
Omg I’ve been on the bee (including my old username) for like 6 months and I just figured it out. Is FX fingers crossed??? LMAO.
Update on my chart. I thought for sure I was gonna O on CD13 like I always have.
Butttt it doesn’t look like I’m going to. Is there a chance that alcohol delayed my O?
I remember someone’s BFP story on the Bee forever ago… She had been charting for 7 months and she gave up everything out of frustration. The temping, the OPK’s, charting, tracking CM, everything. She said something like, “My husband and I needed to let it all go. I had a little wine, forgot about it all, and it happened for me.” After this miscarriage, I decided to kick back and have a drink this weekend (rare occasion for me!) and now I feel like I may have made my temps different or delayed ovulation because of it. I was up probably 2-3 hours later than I normally would be, but I still got like 6-7 hours before temping, and I didn’t have more than a few drinks both times. I was like barely buzzed. But I’m soo sensitive to alcohol, my heart races, I get gassy for like a week after, my blood sugar is all off the next day, (hence why I never drink!)… Now my husband is gone all week and I feel like my temp is gonna go up like tomorrow and I will have actually ovulated like way after our last BD and I can’t do anything about it =( Ahh. I guess I’m just venting. If it’s not our month, then it’s not our month. I was really optimistic that I had regulated right away after this miscarriage but I guess that’s not the case. Oh well. Off to the TTC inspirational board that makes me cry tears of joy every time I see it.
@ChuckNorris: Alcohol would not delay ovulation. It may effect your temperatures, typically making them higher the next day, but that depends on how your body reacts to it. I’m sorry for loss, I had one too, and it is what prompted me to start charting because after my loss my cycles became very long and I couldn’t tell when I was o’ing. So, I believe the delayed ovulation this cycle probably is related to your recent miscarriage and your body regulating. No worries, as I said a few pages ago to RedSmarties, late O isn’t necessarily a bad thing. I got my bfp on cycle 3 post m/c when I ovulated on cd28. Hang in there!
@luli29: I am going to try to hold off until at least Friday which would be 12DPO- I’ll wait until AF is late *IF* I can (fat chance lol) which wouldn’t be until after/during the weekend. This is my 2nd cycle off BCP, last cycle was 34 days so i’m not out of the woods yet. If i O’d on CD19 like bunny suggested i’m only 9DPO so don’t want to test just yet. Temp this morning was still up @ 98.2 …but… I still could have a week left before AF or temps dip. I really hope them staying up is a good sign….
This TWW really is killer, I can see why people get so anxious/nervous! It doesn’t help that my hubby is asking if i’m eating for two and how excited he is… even though it wasn’t planned. I keep telling him not to expect anything but it breaks my heart to see him so thrilled about just the possibility… i just hope it turns into something!
Hopefully that BFN turns into a BFP soon for you… if not, try to hold off for a day or two before testing again 🙁 I am keeping all my limbs crossed!!!
ETA: here we are today: I’ve tried shrinking it down, so hope it worked! Any advice from you pro-charters? 😐 I “discarded” my CD18 day to move my crosshairs to CD19. Mostly because I think FF *may* have been wrong with CD17 and to keep my hopes up that’s what I did LOL. It really is a toss up so who knows which one was actualyl right. Gives me a touch of hope if nothing else, Even if it’s false hope!
