At the request of the lovely ChuckNorrisFTW, I am starting this thread to avoid a post number of a certain satanic variety… 🙂
Catch up on all of the action in Part 6!!!
Ok let’s do a roll call!
Cycles TTC: Pregnant on first cycle in January/Feb, MC’d in March, on cycle 2 since then.
CD/DPO: I got crosshairs!! 3 DPO today. I don’t totally trust it though since I have had a sore throat for 3 days. Not sure if that’s messing with my temp.
POAS date: Saturday July 28th
Words of wisdom: I am too cynical at the moment!!! Maybe in a few days…

Good luck to everyone and let’s get some BFPs!!!!!

Cycles TTC: this will be our 7th month TTC
CD/DPO: FF did not give me crosshairs, but if I plug in temps, I should be 1DPO today. I think I am 2 or 3 DPO though because I got my positive OPK on Monday
POAS date: Saturday July 28th – we’re twins SSLM!
Words of wisdom: Hmm, it’s too early for words of wisdom

BTW, I woke up with a MAJOR charlie horse on my left calf. I never get these…only once before in my life while I was swimming. lol.

Cycles TTC: This is #2 🙂
CD/DPO: CD15 today, waiting to O. Had some fabulous EWCM last night, so hoping it will be soon!! (oh please oh please oh please!)
POAS date: Unknown… don’t want to guess until I finally get crosshairs and have officially ovulated! Think I jinxed myself last month when I had it all planned only to have a 59 day cycle. 😐
Words of wisdom: Keep calm, and carry on….

Yay for charters!!!

Cycles TTC: NTNT since 5/10, TTC since 1/11 — 7 ovulatory cycles. Hoping this will be #8.
CD/DPO: CD15. Hoping for O in the next 2-5 days. I’m on Clomid this cycle and my Os on Clomid have been CD17, CD21 and CD20.
POAS date: 11DPO, whenever that ends up being. FF is predicting my period will start Aug. 6.
Words of wisdom: “I think you’re going to have to wait and see what your temp does in the next few days” Isn’t that the answer to every charting question? 😉

Cycles TTC: We tried in May and got a BFN. Took June off and are trying again this month, so this is TTC cycle #2.
CD/DPO: 2DPO. FF thinks I’m 3 DPO, but I didn’t get O pains until the 17th and definitely still had a fertile cervix and CM that day, so I manually overrode it.
POAS date: Saturday, July 28. It looks like there will be a few of us POAS that day! I’m going to try to hold off on testing until then. Would rather have diablo show up than get a BFN, I think.
Words of wisdom: Have faith in your body; try to work with it rather than against it.

You guys, it is my 30th birthday today! I’ve never been one to be particularly attached to my age, and I’m not upset about starting a new decade, but I am a little wistful thinking about all the changes that the last decade brought.
I hope this thread brings lots of BFPs!

@hergreenapples: HAPPY BIRTHDAY HUN!!!!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

@StaceyA: Thank you 🙂 I’m having a great day so far – got to work and discovered one of my colleagues had completely decked out my office with birthday decorations!

@hergreenapples: oh my goodness, how fun!!! Dirty 30 eh?! Wonder why they call it that…. Should be fabulous 30 🙂 Hope your day just keeps getting better and better!
So, I plugged in high temps for tomorrow/Sat just to play around as my temp went from a low 96.7 to 97 this AM and with the insane EWCM I had last night I was curious. Well, If I do in fact get high temps Fri/Sat it gives me crosshairs for yesterday which would not be good for our chances I think!? We did the deed CD8/10/13/14 and has a O date of CD14… so really, the only BD’ing activity that would count would maybe be yesterday and the day before. *humph*. I thought since my cycle was soooooo long last month that I wouldn’t be anywhere NEAR O’ing this week. Maybe I was wrong… yikes. I also went into my settings and “discarded” my 59 day cycle as it was throwing all my stats off. It moved my predicted O date from Aug 3 to this weekend! Shit, had I know that i maybe would have got on it a little more this week. Oh well. Maybe i’ll do it again tonight or tomorrow (although we have company tomorrow night) and hope for the best.
Not sure if I’m looking for opinions on the matter or just wanted to vent about how dumb I was to miss a day of getting it on in what could have been an important week!

@StaceyA: Lurking on here 🙂 ….the day before and the day of sounds perfect!! As far as I understand, even if you DTD the day before that (O-2), if there was EWCM the sperm wouldn’t survive anyway. It only survives 36 hours when there is fertile mucus. So I think you had PERFECT timing. I am excited about this cycle for you!! BTW, you didn’t take an opk right? Just charting? I think it all seems very promising.

Cycles TTC: NTNT Jan-March 12, BFP March, MC April, 2nd cycle post MC.
CD/DPO: 13 DPO
POAS date: I’ve been peeing on sticks all week!
Words of wisdom: I don’t feel qualified to give words of wisdom, but I guess just don’t lose hope whether that means you’ve been trying for a long time or you’re waiting for O in what seems like a neverending cycle.

@SSLM: YAY for CH’s! Hoping the TWW flies by for you with happy results.
@bunny: Come on O!
@hergreenapples: Happy Birthday! Fingers crossed for you.
@StaceyA: I really wouldn’t stress about missing a day! I think you’ll get high temps and your timing is just fine.

So I have a secret ladies…
I got a very very faint line yesterday on the FRER, but I wanted to wait it out. You guys probably can’t even see the second line on today’s FRER because it’s still pathetically faint. Hopefully this one sticks. I’m a little worried about my temp being lower today.

@MsWasatch: holy shit balls, CONGRATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FX for a very sticky baby :):):):)
@travellingfool: Thanks for the words of encouragement, I guess we’ll see. Won’t get my hopes up until I actually get higher temps/crosshairs. Didn’t do the OPK’s this go, was too stressful. Was tempted to last night but figured with the great EWCM and high CP things were gearing up. I didn’t have much CM the other days this week so hoping you are right about that too! How are you feeling? Hope all is well and was SO happy to hear everything turned out okay after your scare abroad. 🙂

@MsWasatch – holy crap!!! Wow!!! Stick by stick!!!!

@StaceyA: If I understand correctly, you’re thinking that you might have O’d already? I’m not sure how much of a thermal shift one usually sees in farenheit to denote O, as I temp in celsius, but I honestly would think that you haven’t O’d yet after just one day of EWCM, but I suppose everyone is different. I usually get a good 3-5 days of fertile CM before O. I would say keep BDing for now and the next couple days’ temps will tell the whole story.
