    @FreckledFox:  Thanks! I’m hopeful, but trying to be realistic.  I just really hope this is the ticket. But we’re still a good 3-6 months before we see any huge difference from the medicine (if we see one at all).

    @FreckledFox:  Thank you for the info;  I didn’t even know there was a corpus luteum dip, that makes more sense!

    Late to the game, but…

    Roll Call!

    TTC/TTA: TTC

    CD/DPO: CD16

    Cycles TTC/Charting: This is the second

    Age: 37

    POAS/AF Date: According to the OPK, I should be O’ing soon, so around March 4.  No earlier. Early result tests are the devil… THE DEVIL!!… for me.

    BFP Plan and/or Known Issues: At least two chemical pregnancies  in late summer/early fall, one 6-7 week MC in December and a chemical in January.

    You name it, I’m trying it — out of a need to control things and boredom: OPKs, acupuncture, chinese herbs, bone broth, pomegranite juice, charting, mucinex, baby asprin.  And I guess some BD’ing as well.

    For Fun: I’m sick of all this snow and thinking of spring. What is  your favorite thing about spring?

    My favorite thing is that I don’t have to drive through a car graveyard on my way to work. This winter has been crazy.  One day, I passed five accidents (one of which shut doen the expressway) and three cars that went off the road.

    @4littlekitties:  I’m sorry about your losses! I’ve had 4 consecutive chemical pregnancies so I can relate to your situation. I really hope you get your rainbow baby soon!

    Thanks. At this point, I feel like it won’t be a pregnancy until maybe 2.5 weeks post-O.  I can tell when I’m pregnant – no real need to test – so I’m thinking about it like the real wait is not the 2ww, but whether it will stick.  I completely understand why doctors recommend against early testing, though.

    I hope you get your rainbow baby, too πŸ™‚

    The universe works in very mysterious ways. I don’t understand how or why, but it just does. My husband just got a promotion today (not huge, but any bit helps). I think that’s the universe throwing me a bone, as if to say, “life isn’t always unfair.”

    His promotion kicks in at the same time my sister’s husband’s does. I feel like I should shut up before the universe takes it away!

    @4littlekitties:  I’m sorry for your losses. I really hope this is it for you and you get your rainbow baby! I added you on FF. If you can, could you take minute to update your nickname on FF? On your site home, on the left sidebar it should say “add nickname”.  Then I know who’s chart I’m looking at! πŸ™‚

    I’m probably jinxing myself here, but I’m thinking that I might actually ovulate without intense pain this cycle! (fingers crossed) All signs are pointing to ovulation today or tomorrow (based on my own pattern – usually I have three or so days of plentiful, pure EWCM and HSO cervix before O, and I’m on the third day of each today), but no cramps yet!

    We’ll see – it’ll probably start in an hour now that I’m posting, but I’m holding out hope πŸ™‚

    Hey girls… back after all the drama… who knew my post was going to blow up like that. I try to stay away from drama on the bee, I have thin skin in cyberspace too πŸ™‚

    All good here…. after a busy day of presentations etc. I have been to busy to eat and my nerves have been on edge. I told DH today that the stress of this might not be great for TTC, so we will keep trying but I hope I am one of those that goes on vacataion on boom…. baby!

    It looks like a lot is going on here, I will try to catch up in a bit! Happy Monday. And thank you girls for your support. It made me smile every time I saw a message from a charter.

    @OldMrsMcDonald: Glad the move went well. Unpacking really becomes the fun part. You guys are moving in to your new house right?? Wow, that’s exciting!!

    @FreckledFox: I don’t know if I had a sister about my age, how would I feel. My sister is only 13 and she better not get pregnant before me lol! As for my brother, he is 4 years younger than I am and has two kids. It happened such a long time ago, I never really cared. Oh, about your question, glad you ask….I have had this left back pain since yesterday. I couldn’t sleep on my left side πŸ™ It’s still painful. I’ve been overly bloated with some uncomfortable abdominal pain, and I started spotting today….so far it’s only pink…not red. If my temp goes up tomorrow or stays the same I’ll test. If it goes down, I’m almost sure AF is in her way.

    @MiJeS1104: The key really is to wait until you get a test line as dark or darker than the control line. It can be a bit tricky at first, but testing consistently prior to your fertile window seems to give something to go by. Some ladies get darker test lines very close to the control one, and some other just go from faint to positive. Good luck!

    @Mrs.LemonDrop: OMG, your sister sounds scary! I really hope if she finds out she is calm about it. You don’t need any added stress and be put in danger….no way.

    @FreckledFox: Congrats on your DH promotion by the way. I have a feeling this will make him more comfortable when TTC time comes.

    i am sooo late but i’ve gotten back into charting this month and just confirmed my O so yay i’ll join you lovely ladies. Trying to stay on track since i’m so bloody busy at work i can barely think. 

    TTC/TTA: TTC

    CD/DPO: CD14 / -1DPO – got my positive OPK this morning

    Cycles TTC/Charting: 6 but i wasnt diligent for 2 of them. 

    Age: 27
