    @AlmostMrsShield:  I was, but I just got another postiive opk again this morning so I’m thinking that tomorrow will be O day instead of today which would make the 11th my POAS day. BUT, I think I am going to try and hold out until friday the 13th so that I don’t get myself all worked up over nothing during the week. And I’d love to turn a friday the 13th into a lucky day for me!

     

    @CocoLoco523:  Sorry to see you roll call here this month. I hope santa brings you an extra special gift when you POAS on xmas morning! Can you please move my POAS date to Dec 13th the next time you update? Thanks!

    So I realize this makes me a crazy person, but I calculated that if my cycle is as long as it was last month, and I test at 14dpo, I could get a bfp on Christmas, and be due on my birthday. My parents found out they were pregnant with me on Christmas day. There’s a cute picture of them looking really young and giddy in front of their Christmas tree that year, and I would love for this to repeat itself. 

    Sigh….

    I am getting so excited!! Darling Husband and I have been BD like crazy people, but we have been having so much fun. I am really hoping I get a BFP in December- we will probably share the news at Christmas with close family even if it is early.

    @MrsBaldEagle:  no tips here.  I am pretty pathetic at telling the difference myself so I hope someone can tell us something!

    @ajillity81:  Hmmm … I’m not sure then. I know there can be a lowering of semen amount after frequent ejaculation but, based on what my RE said (who is a fertility specialist), there should be no difference in the amount of sperm (since the sperm expelled during ejaculation is actually made approximately 3 months beforehand, not in the days leading up to ejaculation). If he’s worried about it, then his plan of not masturbating during your FW is probably best – just make sure he doesn’t go multiple days without ejaculating, since that might negatively affect sperm count – which I’m sure you wouldn’t anyways, since it’s your FW! ๐Ÿ™‚

    PS – Sorry for the very technical and extremely Too Much Information post! haha

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 21 – should be O’ing today

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: O today – Ithink!

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: It has been about 35 days lately

    Cycles Trying: this will be number 5 ๐Ÿ™

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): 

    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…)  a spa giftcard for a nice massage!

    @MrsBaldEagle:  I always have such a hard time distinguishing the 2 as well! It’s so frustrating! Apparently you can do a water test (on is supposed to sink and fall apart more than the other … I forget which one though) but that approach doesn’t seem to help me!

    @princessbelle:  @CocoLoco523:  @PeachBee:  I read something about the different coloring and consistancy – but it doesnt help me.  Guess I will just go back to not tracking my CM the day after I get lucky. LOL!

    @MrsBaldEagle:  The water test worked for me. I also found that when it was just semen, one “swipe” kind of cleared it out but with CM, it came back throughout the day as my body produced more. Gross, I know. But who else are we going to ask these things? ๐Ÿ™‚

    @PatientBee:  That is adorable! My parents also conceived me around the holidays, but I don’t have any fun pictures where I can see their excitement. It’s really cool that you do. Maybe you can commemorate your BFP in a similar way and save the picture for your little one!

     @MrsBaldEagle:  Honestly, EWCM feels so much more…substantial to me. I don’t know if that’s the right word. They’re both slippery and clear, but the EWCM has a more viscous, thicker feel to me. I always know it because I’m like “Yep, this feels EXACTLY like an egg white. Ew!” While with semen, it just feels slippery and thin. And the stretch factor helps, too – the semen doesn’t really stretch at all.

    My Darling Husband would probably be horrified if he knew I was monkeying around with the semen that leaks out, by the way. ๐Ÿ™‚

     

    So I’m only on CD3, and it feels like it’s going to be for-EV-er until my O-date. I’m so glad for the holiday weekend coming up to distract me. Also, I want to get some stuff done around the house in the meantime, too, so I’m going to plan a project or two.

    @MrsBaldEagle:  i was actually wondering that too. I haven’t been able to properly track my cm these last few days because honestly it drips out of me for at least half a day if we BD the night before (to the point where I need a liner! Ew!) add to that I have been using a bit of preseed so I really have no idea what is what this month. At least I have luck with the opks to help guide me and I have been BDing every day Lol.
