    @WillowB:  It varies woman to woman and sometimes cycle to cycle.  Wish there was a more definitive answer!

    @Utopia4us:  I have that spotting vs AF debate every cycle. I count the very light days as AF though since it wasn’t just some random time during my cycle. My light days are always at the end. Were you thinking of light days in the beginning?

    @Utopia4us:  Ooh, that’s interesting to me about having to find renters for your current house first. That is our plan as well, to rent this house and buy another. I wonder if it will be the same for us.

    Temping question: I have my alarm set for 6:30 eacmin tending to check my BBT. This morning, I naturally woke up at 5:45 and temped… 97.45 (same as yesterday). However, I stayed in bed and did not move (just played around on my phone) and temped ay 6:30 and temp was 98.2.  I am on CD14… Which temp should I count?

    Well, guys, not sure if I will still be here anymore because I am 99% sure I got my BFP! I posted it in the pregnancy board if you would like to squint. I guess it all came down to good charting (so don’t chart so well those TTA lol).

    Thanks to all who answered questions, I really wasn’t here long at all, but I am psyched to have learned what I did!

    @want2beeamom:  Stick with the first one, for sure.  Even playing on your phone is activity.

    @WillowB:  Mine do get darker gradually as I approach O, but I know not everyone has the same luck!  Here’s an example of mine from May, over 3 days approaching O:

    @want2beeamom:  Definitely the first temperature.

    I spent the majority of yesterday evening on the hunt for test sticks for my monitor. I went to 5 stores and on my second trip back to one of them, I asked the pharmacist and she pointed them out to me, I’d been staring at them all that time. 

    My temp spiked today…sort of…in comparison with the last two days. It’s likely that I did O yesterday, or somewhere between my last two OPKs as two days ago it was + and yesterday was -. Still a peak on my monitor. I guess I just gotta patiently wait and hope to get a crosshairs in two days. If I O’d anywhere past CD 21, I’d say my chances are much slimmer, even though we BD during the 5 day window.

    @lovemygsp:  Congrats!!! I saw yesterday when I was catching up on my chart stalking, but didn’t have time to find the thread! So excited for you! That’s so cute that it didn’t click right away. Boys. lol

    @megz06:  Congrats!

    I’ve been avoiding WB – well sort of. We had a visitor last weekend, so I was busy with that. I’m also having a small life freak out at the moment. Turns out DH’s check this month has been “delayed” because his dumb job is run by trolls. So with me not working, that means we’re a bit screwed if it doesn’t come up in the account shortly. My usual “apply for jobs” routine has turned a bit frantic. 

    In other news, CD4 for me. Stellar. While I’m surprisingly ok with it this month, I’ve been an emotional monster for the last three days. It’s definitely the downside of being off birth control! haha.

    Okay, I’m totally confused!  The last 6 cycles I think I’ve ovulated on CD 16/17 (based on OPKs).  Last cycle FF had me ovulate on CD 17 based on OPKs and Temps (first time temping).  Now this cycle it gave me the red lines on CD 11 based on temps alone because I haven’t even started OPKs yet.  Do you think this is real or probably just a coincidence?  Here is my link: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/MrsBGfromWB and I’ll post a pic of the chart to make things easier.  Thanks in advance!

     

    EDITED TO INCLUDE: I just added a CM note and it took away my lines. I’m guessing it is just a random coincidence. I’m going to stay on track for a Friday ovulation.

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  Thanks dudette! And I’m sorry you are stressed out. πŸ™ I’m actually in a similar boat and know the awful feeling of frantically searching all day and not finding anything to apply to. My job is from government grants and its iffy right now if I’m going to actually get more funding come sept and I’m not working right now as it is a university and I have have July and August off. So I’ve been trying to find a job with less uncertainty since January. Until this week I was majorly stressing but then everything worked out. I got my bonus this month and DH is getting a GIGANTIC bonus (as in almost what I make a year). I have faith things will work out for you really soon too! πŸ™‚

    @WillowB:  Mine do not gradually get darker either, I get some faint ones, then all of a sudden I get darker ones, then lighter and so on. Usually once you get some darker ones, the positive is just around the corner. Post any pics if you have more questions.

    @Mrs.LemonDrop:  Hi lady! Yeah finances can be stressful at times. I love making budgets and what not. It makes me less stressed. That is the reason number one why we postponed ttc. DH got unemployed and we just don’t make enough to pay bills and have money for the baby. Hope things get better and you find a great job soon.

    @MrsBG:  It seems like you ovulated on CD11. Just keep watching your temperatures and see what they do. You should be able to tell in a few days. Your BDing timing looks good πŸ™‚

    DANGIT, BEES.

    For 3 cycles of charting, I’ve O’d between CD 17-21. This cycle, my temps have been odd, so I started taking OPKs yesterday. Yesterday was faint, but today, CD 13, it’s almost positive! Looking at my past tests, it looks like the others on O-1. If that’s true, then I’d O tomorrow on CD14. DH and I haven’t seen each other for more than 30 waking minutes in the last few days and have not BDd at all for that reason.

    He’s out tonight but will be home in about 2 hours. We had a HUGE fight earlier, so neither of us are in the mood to get it on, but I just called him and was like “Hey, it’s your lucky day! We get to fight AND have sex today!” I know it’s the last thing either of us want to do tonight, but, duty calls.

    I’m annoyed with my body, though. Why you changing it up all the time?! This means if I O tomorrow, we’ll only get in BD on O-1, O and O+1. Maybe it won’t happen til Friday and give us some extra BD time.

    Ok, rant over. I’ve had such a crappy day, this is icing on the cake. Must go shake negative Nancy feelings now and think positive KU thoughts. Wish us luck!
