Awesome!  We needed a new one. 

Temp stayed up at 97.7 for me today so definite O.  Now to try to avoid symptom-delusions : )

I have a question for you charters sparked by my experience with CBEFM.  Do you charts, OPKs and/or fertility monitors always line up?  I felt that the CBEFM was off, but I only charted with it for 2 or 3 months, then I ditched the monitor.

What about the rest of you?

@ecomaha – If you had EWCM too, I think it’s a real O spike.  Today’s temp is still high too.  But if you don’t trust it, just keep BDing!

In the spirit of the new thread can we take a second to re-introduce ourselves and our stories.  I forget who is where/doing what and it seems that a few of us are pretty regularly on this thread.

Me: 31, DH 42 – TTC 14 months – no meds – chemical pg month 13

Hey again, all!

Me: 26

DH: 32

TTC: This is our 12th cycle. No meds, chemical pregnancy in March, miscarriage in September. 

My first period post-MC just ended, so now we’re waiting to (hopefully) ovulate again. I know some docs say you should wait another full cycle or two, but we’re ready and eager to start trying again. I feel like we’ve been trying too long to take time off.

@JaneyD:  and

@septcabride:   Ugh!  It’s just so hard to tell!  And probably more frustrating that you have to wait til the next few days, or after the fact to know.  I wonder if anyone else has trouble with the Wandfo’s working.  I thought I had heard such good things about them!  We only got to BD on Monday night and Wednesday morning so I’m praying if I did O that that will be enough :/

Oh and I usually don’t chart my CM bc for me it is really not that much so I feel like I’m always guessing when I do!

@ecomaha: I don’t chart my CM either, except EW.  When I get that it’s obvious.  The rest is so hard to tell.

@ecomaha: yay for someone else with a somewhat older husband!  I know 39 is not “old” (although I kind of think 42 is) but my major TTC pressure is DH’s age.

@JaneyD:  I know! :)) Luckily for them age doesn’t really matter! 😉  Have you tried anything to increase your CM?  I’m trying green tea and grapefruit juice but honestly, I don’t think I’ve seen much of a change, other than just making me feel better for trying something 🙂

Shoot!  Now I’m starting to worry that we might have missed the O.  I know worrying will get me no where but I can’t help it!  Dang it!

@ecomaha: A few months ago I did green tea.  This month I did coffee : )  I don’t really feel like doing anything major i.e. vitamins or mucinex unless a doctor tells me to, but maybe that’s stupid.

For me I worry until I know for sure that I’ve O’d.  Then I worry about whether or not we timed it right and if it worked.  I TRY to not think about it after checking my temp for the day.
