Roll Call!!

TTC or TTA: TTC

CYCLE DAY AND CYCLES TRYING or TTC START DATE: CD50/10DPO – 8 months since we started trying. First ovulatory cycle.

AGE: 27

CHART LINK: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3acd61
I’m listing every single thing that could possibly be a symptom just so I know how I felt during the TWW for future cycles. I also have a terrible cold that started 8DPO.

ESTIMATED POAS DAY: 14/03/13 – Caved early though and BFN’s @ 8,9 & 10 DPO, still holding out hope that it is too early

ISSUES (IF ANY): PCOS, over active thyroid

HOW ARE YOU GOING ABOUT GETTING YOUR BFP? (BD SCHEDULE, OPK’S ETC): Metformin, charting, checking CM

TELL US SOMETHING MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU? I wax my face like every three weeks to get rid of the unsightly hair that grows there.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT DOING AFTER YOU GET YOUR BFP? Telling Darling Husband – I know he is trying to be strong for me but I know how bad he wants this.

@MrsR4ever:  Your chart looks good to me – not that I am any sort of expert πŸ˜‰ but hoping that it is still too early for you. I was looking at BFP days earlier because i’ve had three BFN 8,9 &10DPO and quite a few people still weren’t getting BFP’s until 13, 14, 15 DPO even though they tested 10, 12 DPO. Fingers crossed that is us too!

Thanks to everyone who answered about my high temp the other morning on the previous thread. It has taken me a while to respond because I don’t like using my iPad/iPhone to do responses – too hard – like to wait until I can use my laptop.

TTC or TTA:   TTC

CYCLE DAY AND CYCLES TRYING or TTC START DATE: CD 25, 10 DPO, 1st cycle trying

AGE: 31

CHART LINK: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/redhead46

ESTIMATED POAS DAY: Well I tested this morning and BFN, so I’m going to wait until the 15th to test again, when AF is supposed to be here

ISSUES (IF ANY): None so far.  Really irregular cycles (like two periods a month and then 3-4 months without one) before going on BCP 11 years ago, haven’t been off them since but this cycle seemed pretty regular except for the spotting I’ve been having for the last couple days.

HOW ARE YOU GOING ABOUT GETTING YOUR BFP? (BD SCHEDULE, OPK’S ETC)  OPK’s, trying to BD all days during fertile window

TELL US SOMETHING MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU?  I don’t know, I’m pretty open.

WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT DOING AFTER YOU GET YOUR BFP?  I’m really excited to tell our families and oddly I’m excited to actually be pregnant and go through all the emotions and changes that go along with that.

Hey ladies!! Just wanted to pop in and say hello! We are loving up our new niece ( Darling Husband twin sisters daughter) she is 2 months old, having a good vacation. Opted to rent a hotel room for the last 3 nights were on vacation. As I am 5 days out approximately from ovulating we didn’t want to risk missing it just because we feel awkward about doing some BD while we areassayingwith his twin sister. Good egg white CM today and we did it this afternoon plus doing to try tonight temp seems pretty steady. We will see what happens, can’t link my chart via iPad but for those who have friended me on FF you can check it out there…. Off to go swimming. πŸ™‚ night ladies!! Xo

TTC or TTA: NTNP

CYCLE DAY AND CYCLES TRYING or TTC START DATE: CD 15; not sure where O was

AGE: 26, Darling Husband is 31

CHART LINK: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/mrslemondrop

 

ESTIMATED POAS DAY: I was originally planning March 25 (31 days, which is what it took to get a period after Mirena WD), but FF has me ovulating at CD10 and expecting AF on 19 March, but that’s only 24 days. Its been a long time since I’ve been off birth control, but it usually was at least 30-35 days. 

 

ISSUES (IF ANY): None that I know of. 

HOW ARE YOU GOING ABOUT GETTING YOUR BFP? (BD SCHEDULE, OPK’S  ETC): OPKs (although I never got a positive, think I might have screwed up), and BD whenever. We’re just NTNP so it’s pretty relaxed.


TELL US SOMETHING MOST PEOPLE DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU? Hmm… That’s really tough. I’m seventeen years older than my littlest sibling. And if I were to get KU this cycle, she would only be 10 years older than her niece! I think my mom screwed up the generations in my family, haha.


WHAT ARE YOU MOST EXCITED ABOUT DOING AFTER YOU GET YOUR  BFP? Telling DH! He’s going to be away starting Tuesday for 10 days. If we did happent to get a BFP this cycle, he probably wouldn’t be home when I firts found out. 


So ladies, it’s been a few more days, a few more OPKs since my last post. Any idea whether we agree with FF on a CD 10 O? Considering the second jump and the tiny bit of EWCF I saw yesterday morning, I’m wondering if it was maybe actually CD13 (Thursday), but then I really don’t know. 

I did OPK Thursday afternoon (-) and 2x Friday (both -). The temps kind of look like I have already, but I’m not sure if I should keep going. 

ha, this first month is hard!

@StaceyA:  You’re my heroooo. I would be a lingerie model if I could get into modeling. I won’t tell y’all what my secret is haha. 

@ScottishMrs:  Bahaha I love you. It’s always the ones you’d least suspect! πŸ˜‰ 

@FreckledFox:  HAHAHA. You sounded like some of my friends. I’m pretty sure I was the only one who’d even kissed a boy by the time we graduated…and I’d done much more than that lol. They all thought I was an uberskank….and I kinda was compared to them. lol. You’ve certainly done a 180, though!! I could never pierce my own clit hood…but I did get it done lol. I pierced my ex’s ear and that was scary enough! I almost threw up and as shaking so bad (really safe, right?). You have some major lady balls! I’m the opposite, though…I can’t do anything to myself, but I do really well with someone else piercing/tattooing me. I’m good at sitting still and breathing. lol. And stretching my ears. I’m restretching them currently and it’s a beeeetch (I went from 14 to 10 :/)

@MrsR4ever:  Were you here for my dollar store test fiasco? Stupid tests are stupid. I think that was my second cycle…it was awful. I’m sorry. πŸ™ It’s definitely not over, though!

Still no O for me yet. I really thought that it would happen today. I got a +OPK Thursday And I usually O on CD16 or 17 so I am 1 day late. 

If it doesn’t come by tommarow I think I’m going to go pick up some Vitex from Walgreens and see if that helps any.

@princessbelle:  i didnt realize until after i opened it that there is a section for BEFORE you are expecting. I’ll justify the purchase with that if Darling Husband ever finds it.  πŸ™‚

@Novella:  sometimes i need to pluck my “moustache ends”. are you italian? Thats my curse.  πŸ™‚  though i was reading that it could be linked to the thyroid!

@chelles07:  i’m double jointed too! SO much so that the Dr thought i had Marfan’s syndrome. (unusually flexible connective tissue). People are grossed out when i stretch my arms and wrists.

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  wow i couldnt imagine being that much older than a sibling! I’m 5 years older, and that age gap is enough for me and my brother.

@glittermoon:  haha! I could pierce myself, but never tattoo myself for sure haha. I got my belly button pierced professionally and practically pased out from anxiety! but i wanted more piercings! Woo for more stretched Ears! Mine were 1″ at the biggest but i saw a picture and was pretty freaked out how big 1″ really was.. so i slowly went down to 1/4″ for the wedding. I had to make my own pearl plugs cause i couldnt find any pretty ones. I’m at 1/2″ inch now and love it. Go with wooden plugs! no smelly, no drying out, no nothing. πŸ™‚

@chelles07:  dude i feel ya with the no O-ing. i understand. oddly enough i got my O date after my first dose of Folic acid, though i’m sure they aren’t connected. i think i was stressing so much. I hope you O soon!!

@MrsHoneyC:  Could be a pre-O dip, esp in conjunction with the EWCM!

@princessbelle:  I totally hide my copy of the Mayo Clinic’s guide to pregnancy…lol!  Darling Husband knows I bought a copy but I keep it out of sight from him.  He thinks it’s a bit odd for me to have a preggo book when I’m not KU.  I told him I like to be prepared πŸ˜›

 

So today I woke up to tons of EWCM.  I don’t want to get my hopes up that I’m Oing already but I’ll still try to pounce on Darling Husband when he gets home from work, just in case this is it πŸ™‚  This (patches of EWCM mid cycle) happened multiple times during my last cycle soooo it just may be that my CM is still wonky from coming off the pill.  Keep your FX for me, ladies!!!
