  • poll: What is the first thing you do when you get home?

    I throw my stuff on the floor and look for my pets. I love my furbabies.

    I gently put my stuff on the couch/sofa/table and look for my pets.

    I look for my pets then my DH/SO.

    I look for DH/SO and give him a huge kiss and hug. Love him so much!

    I sit down drink some coffee/tea then I call my DH/SO.

    I throw my stuff in the floor and lay on the bed or whatever I find first. I'm too tired.

    I check the answering machine then grab a drink.

    I sit down and watch TV. Chillax!

    I go straight to the fridge then I sit down. I'm starving!

    I have two chihuahuas. My hobby recently has been training one of them to do tricks. She’s making really good progress! The other one is a rescue who was abused and she just hasn’t really picked up any training yet. We’re hoping she will come around, but we’ve had her for 6 months and she hasn’t made any progress though. Poor thing can’t even sit on command! haha 

    ETA: Oh I also LOVE to read. I’m always ready something!

    @Tomato22:  Thanks!  I’m hoping my chart will say something useful in the next couple weeks till the appointment since I don’t have a lot of data yet.  At the very least, she can tell me what I need to be doing while TTC, although I feel like I already know this answer.  Should I ask for any blood tests or anything to check my hormone levels?  I honestly just don’t even know what to ask her.  I feel like it’s too early to think there’s something wrong with me.  I’m not sure if she’ll be able to offer me any peace of mind while I wait for my body to acclimate to being off BCP.

    @Christy42213:  Well, if it were me, I would ask her to test your hormones. I mean you might as well see if you can find out since you’re going to be there. I know that people don’t typically do tests until they don’t get pregnant for like 6 months, but it seems like if you aren’t ovulating it should be different. It won’t hurt to ask though!

    Roll Call!


    CD/DPO: CD 27/ 5 DPO?

    Cycles TTC/Charting: TTC since April 2013. I’ve only had 4 cycles though. First cycle charting.

    Temping method (orally/vaginally/other): Orally. Although next cycle I may switch to vaginally.

    Temping time (Ex. 6:00 am): 4:50am

    Age: 28. DH is 25.

    POAS/AF Date: no idea. My last cycle was 114 days and induced with Provera.

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: I was just recently diagnosed with PCOS in December. I was given clomid to take for 6 cycles days 3-7. This is my first clomid cycle. 

    Link to Chart: My chart

    For Fun: Do you have any hobbies? What is it? or them? Share a pic of your favorite hobby if you would like. We love pictures. I love to read and play with my three cats. Travelling is also super fun. DH and I went to Scotland and Ireland in December. 


    Well, I already posted this in the last thread, but I thought I’d try it on this one as well in case someone may have missed it. 

    So after being diagnosed with PCOS and starting clomid, I figured I would give charting a try. Its been kind of tough since I rarely get more than 2 straight hours of sleep, but I was hoping I’d be able to see some type of pattern. I got dotted crosshairs the other day. I think its because my opk was negative. My first 3 cycles of TTC, I got definite positive OPKs. Last cycle I didn’t get a positive and definitely didn’t ovulate. That cycle was 114 days and induced with provera. The other cycles were 40 days, 76 days and 36 days. Anyway, my question is: does it look like I actually may have ovulated? My opks were and still are almost positive. I only tested once at around 3pm around that time. On the day it says I may have ovulated, I did sleep with my mouth open for a tiny bit. Also, starting that day I started temping at 4:50am instead of 5:30am because my shift at work was suddenly changed. Anyway. I know no one can say for sure if I did or didn’t ovulate, but from your experience, what does it look like? Thanks for reading if you got through all that!

    I really wish I had a hobby besides shopping, lol.  We are moving on 2/15, so right now I’m really focused on furnishing and decorating our new place. It’s very exciting to me because we’ve lived in the same tiny 1bdrm/1ba for nearly 5 years, and we’re moving to a 3bdrm/2.5 ba.  CAN’T WAIT!
