    Hi ladies,

    I have irreglar cycles so I was waiting to O before I did my roll call. Pretty sure I finally ovulated 3 days ago though, so here goes my Dec roll call …

    Roll call

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD23/3DPO

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: Nov 27

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: FF is suggesting Dec 11 as my POAS date (although I will likely test a day or two earlier, since I have an important party to go to on Dec 10th and will want to know if I can have a glass of wine or two)

    Cycles Trying: This will be our 3rd

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): Prenatals, temping/charting, lots of BDing

    Link to Chart, if any

    and for fun –

    What would you REALLY, REALLY love for a holiday gift (other than the obvious BFP of course…) ?  There isn’t anything big I want for christmas this year … The thing that would truly make me happiest would be to give my parents an xmas gift telling them I was pregnant!

    Alright needing some advice here….I have been taking multivitamins (women’s one a day chewies) in preparation for TTC, but I was doing a little research and found a bit of info on vitamin B6 and how it can lengthen your cycle. My cycles are irregular and LONG, so I definitely don’t want to lengthen them. I did have the longest cycle I’ve ever had last month, at 48 days, and I’m wondering if it’s because of the vitamins. It’s possible that it was just because it was out first month truly TTC and I might have stressed myself out, but I don’t really know because it was also the first month that I was consistently taking the vitamins. I am wondering if I’m better off not taking them anymore…

    @CocoLoco523:  FF has moved my POAS date to December 15 (if I truly did ovulate when they think… my crosshairs are dotted and my temp was weird today, so I’m not sure) – can you please move me back? Thanks!

    @Treejewel19:  Thank you ladies… Unfortunately all the signs were right and AF showed up today… At least I dealt with most of the sadness yesterday. Now will look forward to ovulating on time and POAS ing on December 25th! 

    Anyone else taking evening primrose oil? I’ve taken it the last few cycles and am trying to figure out if I should keep taking it.

    @BalticBee:  Sorry about AF:( I took EPO before each of my two pregnancies. I’d take them until the end of my fertile window, then stop- if I got a bfp, I didn’t take them again (until after 37 weeks pregnant) and if it was a bfn, I’d taken them again until end of fertile window..repeat! It worked for me (or at least it didn’t have a negative effect!). FX for you!!

    Ok all you opkers. I need your opinion. I’m not sure what the positive is really supposed to look like.   Here is my picture for the last 6 days.  According to my ovulation calendar my FW is Nov 28 to Dec 2

     

    Sorry its so huge!!!

    Sigh. Feeling very discouraged today. Not feeling like this month is “our month”. Last week, I was positive that it was. It’s such a rollercoaster. Today is 8dpo. I used a wondfo pregnancy test and it was BFN. I know they arent that sensitive so deep down I know it was really silly to be testing anyways. Sigh. Just wish I was one of those women who had early symptoms. haha. Will keep everyone updated ๐Ÿ™‚

    Honestly, we need so much stuff for our home, such as a new couch, tv, etc and I am hoping to be able to pick some of that out together over the next month.

    @IUrebekah3RT:  Awesome! I am dying over here. I used a cheapie to test this morning even though I knew there was almost no chance of it showing pregnancy. 

     

    If we don’t get pregnant this month, we are skipping Dec/Jan and possibly Feb because I am in my best friends wedding at the beginning of Oct. I am super hoping it works this works! Lol

    @MrsFireChief:  The first three all look like they *could* be positive, test line looks equal to the control line, but you were still in your first week of your cycle then right? LH can fluctuate before and during AF. I’d bet you will O later, especially since you had that 34 day cycle last time, it wouldn’t be too odd to have a later O. Keep testing and you should get another surge soon.

    Holy shitballs. 8-10 dpo, tested in the late afternoon. No remarkable symptoms, just a faint boob twinge, SUPER mild-almost-nothing cramping, restless sleep. Sorry for the blurry pic, but I don’t think this is in the squinter category. I have no idea what part of my brain compelled me to test. 

    Our dog is sick right now so we are not really processing this. I had a false positive or CP five years ago, so DH has that in mind. Probably won’t believe it for a few days! He is a man of science and it takes a lot more data to get him excited. Ha! So yeah.

    @MrsFireChief:  Based on the photos it looks like you have a couple almost positive but not an actual positive.  The test line is slightly lighter from what I can see.
