Ugh bees…  I have the worst gas of my entire life today LOL. It is super painful, all the way from what feels like my chest to my stomach :/ I am kind of hoping this is a good sign, even though I am in this much pain!  Frown

Started out as slightly funny cramps and now full blown gas pockets. Wth?

@bunny:  TMI:  I have had copious watery CM for like the last 5 days. Which is why I thought I may O on time. I don’t know how to check cervix position.  It was like really low, I think like 96.4 or something. Have you had temps that low in your pre-O dip?? I will not discard it so I can keep it consistant. This month I wanted to temp every. single. day. at 5:40 AM every morning. And I have so far!!!

@StaceyA:  Have you taken some gas-x or beano? What did you ear yesterday? That is exciting symptoms… =)

@ChuckNorris:  I had some peppermint tea, and that seemed to help! Didn’t eat anything at all out of the ordinary yesterday… very odd. 

My order of OPK’s and Pre-Seed came in today. It came with 2 of those pregnancy tet strips… they were calling my name, i’m psretty sure. “TAKE ME!! TAKE MEEEE!” but I somehow restrained myself. I am trying to stick with my guns and wait until Sunday. Friday might be a tough day to avoid it though!!!!! Gah. πŸ™

@StaceyA:  You are GOOD! good job for fighting it!!!!!!!!!! Man you are going all the way with OPK’s and everything! =) That’s awesome. I have been fighting myself to do that too.

@ChuckNorris:  I figured “why not” … even if we aren’t trying it will be good to get a baseline of when i’m O’ing… for those months that we decide we will go for it. That is… if we arent there already : LOL. They are super cheap and i figured better than spending $1.25 for one at the dollar store, you can buy a whole boatload for next to nothing! If I don’t end up needing them I’ll make you a deal and send a package of them to you! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ 

 

How are things going today? How is the chart looking? Tomorrow will probably indicate a lot for you, considering your last low dip!

@ChuckNorris:  My lowest temps are around 96.5 or 96.4 and my post-O temps (this month, which is the only one i have good data for) are between 97.1 and 98.0. Don’t worry about low temps during the first half of your cycle. They are totally normal. πŸ™‚

@StaceyA:  Let me know how you like them!! It seems like such a pain to have to take them all the time but man I know it is something I would be obsessed with doing if I started it. Haha. Do you take them to work with you and pee there? Is it like a preg test? My goal is to try not to go the OPK route until we have been unsuccessfully TTC for four more months. It’s my best friend’s wedding in July 2013, and I would really like to not be pregnant for her wedding (I’m her maid of honor). So hopefully we conceive before October…we are running out of time though!!! Five more months!!

This is what it looks like without discarding the dip. =/ Doesn’t look very promising, huh…

@bunny:  Well that makes me feel better that someone else has had a super low dip… I dunno. Since January, the lowest my temp has ever been has been this month at 97.18; previously never went lower than 97.2. I suppose only time will tell, huh! Sucks that my hubs is gone for most of this month. Hence why BD didn’t start until CD11… He is on vacation after his next 72 hour shift so hopefully if I don’t O before then, I O during that time!

Well ladies, I went below the coverline, and my spotting is getting darker, so I know AF will be here today or tomorrow.

Sadness.

@ChuckNorris:  Your chart looka good to me. Since I’ve been chatting I usually get a huge dip like seen on your chart right before ovulation. I also use OPKs along with charting. It’s nice to have something else confirming my chart. I usually take them once in the morning when I wake up and once when I get home from work. The way it’s taken is like a pregnancy test but read completely different.

@luli29: I’m sorry. πŸ™ I hate that feeling when I see my temp drop and I start spotting. I hope this next cycle is it for you.

@luli29:  Sorry to hear luli πŸ™ On a positive side, CD1 is nearly approaching which means a fresh new month to try and hope for good things πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Sorry to hear though, I can imagine how dissapointed you are.

My temps this morning were weird. I woke up at 6am which is MUCH earlier than my normal time and my temp was 97.9…. took it at 7am again which is my normal time and it was 98.36. I don’t normally sleep soundly btwn 6 and 7 so I’m tempted to use my 7am temp but not sure. I used 98.2 for FF as it was kind of on the higher side of middle ground.

I am really tempted to test Saturday afternoon. I know it’s not an ideal time but my DH is out for the afternoon, and if it’s + I can get a digital to take Sunday AM which would be 14DPO. I am really, really trying to resist the urge to test sooner. I just don’t feel any different and am kind of chalking that up to nothing is happening. Besides the gas yesterday and some very mild cramping today. No spotting at all which is normal for me. 

 Here is the chart:

@StaceyA:  

Since this is my first month charting, I’m no expert, so am not sure which temp is best to use but would be inclined to say the first one. Your chart looks soo good though…up,up,up!

@luli29:  I hope you’re right. If i use my first temp from this morning that downward spike is quite a bit more severe! I don’t know what that means, if anything. So tempted to test and just know one way or another…. the wait is killing me. I just want to know so i can stop obsessing about it! πŸ™

I’ll do it. The last two ladies to start charting threads got their BFPs right away, so I think it’s good luck to start one. πŸ™‚
