@MrsCarnival: I’m not sure if I responded to you before, how are you doing? i’m hoping February is your month *hugs*
How is everyone doing here in February?? Is this getting easier or harder for you ladies as the months go on?
Myself, I was pretty optimistic in the beginning, but this last cycle was the first time I flat out bawled my eyes out after seeing that BFN. I just feel like I should’ve stopped my BC long ago and started charting earlier. My cycles are wonky and long, so instead of getting one shot a month, I get one shot about every 2. It sucks. But I’m feeling better about it the last day or 2. I know there are ladies here that have been trying way longer and I hope I’m not upsetting anyone. Just wanted to see if anyone else is in a similar boat.

Current Cycle Day: CD2
Ovulation Date: TBD -1/28ish.
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: 2/10ish (would be an awesome anniversary surprise 😉 )
Cycles trying: 6
BD timing: When the mood strikes.
Link to Chart, if any: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/3f6b6d (I’m not sure how to make the link my user name?)
If its a no go this month we are going to have to take a break. 🙁 1.)I don’t want a holiday baby as the poor kids birthday’s would suck (My bros birthday is right after christmas and he has always had crummy bdays). and 2.)I work for the gov. and my contract ends in june so I don’t know where i’ll be health insurance wise after and we don’t want to spend too much buying cobra insurance.
@krystallite: I’m really bummed. Last cycle was all kinds of weird so I was convinced I was pregnant for a while and then as the BFN’s kept coming I started to get more depressed and stressed. I had dreams of announcing at christmas too. 🙁 To add insult to injury, both SIL’s announced they are pregnant over xmas and I had no clue either were trying. It sucks for any of our little ones on DH’s side of the family because they will end up being at least grandkid #5. Silver lining is I shoud get 1st grandkid on my side of the family as my brother is much younger than I.

I am REALLY new to all of this POAS stuff. I will be doing my research soon on what everything stands for.
What I can tell you is, this is my first cycle trying. 🙂
I doubt I am pregnant though because we started trying a few days short of my O days. So no high expections right now just going with the flow and hoping for a little bundle of joy soon.
Fingers crossed for TONS of V-day babies!

I just wanted to let you ladies know that I’m stalking this thread and rooting for all of you! Unfortunately I can’t TTC for another month or two. The doctor wants us to wait a couple cycles to TTC because I had a D&C in December. That doesn’t stop me from cheering for other people’s BFPs though!

@KateByDesign: third time was a charm for me! 🙂

@chelles07: FX that you don’t have to officially join February 🙂
Welcome!! Hoping your stay on the POAS boards is short and sweet!
I’m sorry about your mc’s/d&c. I was so sad when I read your original thread about the december loss. 🙁 Hugs to you, and thanks for the positive vibes!!
I’m doing pretty good. This is only cycle #2 for us so I’m staying optimistic Hubby was pretty bummed last cycle when AF showed…he was like like, “…I don’t understand, but we were having unprotected sex…why aren’t you KU!?” lol. Boys! 😛

@lovemygsp: I hear ya about taking a break. DH and I *may* have to consider taking a TTC hiatus these next couple of months (which is crazy since we just started…). Nov-Jan due dates wouldn’t really mesh well with my work schedule. But, we’ll see what happens!!

@doxielove: Glad I’m not the only one who thinks of these things. 🙂 I feel stressed about taking a break if it continues to take a long time but it just is what would be best. I don’t want to go into debt for health care. Ah life. Well hopefully it doesn’t happen but if it does, we can be the dog lover 2nd timer tcc group. 😉

I’m not ready to join this thread yet (I’m still in the January POAS club, though I’m not thinking this is gonna be my month…), but I’ve got to know- whats Jenny Renny?
Post # 41
Jenny Renny is an online psychic. Its $10 for a reading. She tells you the month you will conceive. The due date month and what labor will be like. There should be a Jenny Renny thread a few down from this one that has a lot of bees readings.

Posting so I can find this thread, later. I’ll be a cycle #1 TTCer. Just waiting for my next cycle (AF was due yesterday, but she’s taking her sweet time, I guess).

@MrsCarnival: Sorry for your loss! I hope that your body gets back to normal soon.
Sorry about yoru baby daddy! I about want to punch my daughter’s biomom in the face because she hasn’t sent christmas/birthday CARDS yet and it’s been a month.
Please, please, please relax. You probably won’t have an implantation dip. Often, charts show a corpus luteum dip and an estrogen dip and my charts did both months except last month, which just had a dip at 7DPO and was really weird. There is no way for you to know if you’re pregnant or not. There have been so many girls in the January thread complaining that they’re not pregnant, and then the next day post their BFPs so just relax. This cycle might not be your cycle, but it very well could be! It’s WAYYYY too soon to count yourself out.
I’m on cycle four and when I was out for cycle three I was a little “meh” but then got over it. It’s not really a big deal anymore. First month was horrible, second month ditto…but I feel like I had a giant let down two months in a row so I’m just not expecting anything anymore.
OMG both sister in laws???? That’s so unfair!!!! I’m lucky to be the oldest on my side, too. I doubt that my SIL is trying as they just bought a house and aren’t married yet and have been together four years…so they’re taking their time and are happy going at their own pace. I mean, I would be thrilled if she was, but it would still take a minute to get over me not being pregnant. We’ll be stopping in March or April I think…I can’t have a December baby. My stepdaughter’s birthday is the 15th, my brother’s is the 27th, my stepbrother’s is the 19th, cousins is the 2nd….PLUS chanukah AND christmas….it’s just too much as it is lol.
I’m sorry for your loss 🙁 I hope that you get pregnant as soon as you guys start trying again!

I’m just popping in to say hi. So many January BFPs!!! I should go comment on that page lol. I won’t be on very often, but I thought I’d at least post my new roll call.
Current Cycle Day: CD7
Ovulation Date: January 20th or 21st…my body likes to reset itself to what it was on birth control and last month I had a 15 day luteal (possible chemical that didn’t show up on a test but threw me off a day? Who knows.) and I have a feeling I’ll either O earlier or have a shorter luteal phase. Or just 29 day cycles.
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: February 4th (and my fourth cycle!). Twenty eight/nine days.
Cycles trying: Four!
BD timing: I’m going for o-3, o-2, o-1, o, and o+1 so we’ll see.
Link to Chart, if any: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/glittermoon I’m only temping through ovulation, though. Maybe lol. I might just temp through the end of the cycle.

@doxielove: I will definitely be in for Feb, so add me to the list pretty please 🙂 TBD at this stage thanks…
I’ve just finished reading it myself – I got so much from it! this is going to be my first cycle charting 🙂
had to take a little break from WB for a while after MC, as we were advised to skip a cycle before trying again and it was frustrating me. After reading TCOYF I’m ready to get back on that horse again though! So excited for all the BfPs happening in my absence though – here’s hoping it keeps going in Feb 🙂
Current Cycle Day: CD 29 – had my temp dip, but AF…where are you?? Have ruled out pg through 2 FRER BFNs
Ovulation Date: TBD
POAS Date/Usual cycle length: I will POAS on AF due date, or if temps don’t dip after normal LP length. Usual cycle length 27 days.
Cycles trying: 2 – this is my 1st since MC on 12/15
BD timing: every day during suspected O week – if we can’t manage that then definitely when i have fertile CM and positive OPKs.
