CD 7 supposedly. What do you think? My low post O temps are bugging me. It has been really cold lately but still. I wish they were going up faster than they’ve been! Yesterday I was mildly crampy all afternoon and had a headache. 

My resting pulse rate is also not typical this cycle. It usually rises a few days before O then continues to climb til it drops right before AF. Am I looking too much into this?

I’m Pregnant!!!

I really doubted it up until yesterday, but my boobs gave it away and I couldn’t resist testing today. I’m so happy and relieved and terrified. I have to learn to be cautiously hopeful. I’ve had some weird brown CM today, but I have to try not to drive myself nuts over the symptoms. Now I know my body is really good at getting pregnant, and I’ll start praying I can stay that way until I finally get to hold my baby in my arms. 

The ironic thing here is, we just bought a house on Sunday, thinking TTC would be a long haul for us….and now we’re literally out of money. But after all we have been through in the last 6 months, that oddly feels like a small problem. I think 2019 is going to be our year overall.



15 DPO PM (2 hour hold)

Congratulations to everyone again, it’s so nice to see!

I tested this morning and it’s a BFN so onto next month. AF still hasn’t arrived even though I’m now late so it seems I’m still adjusting post pill. When I’m looking at next cycle do I base it on this cycles length? Both opk’s to help but not sure when I’d start testing if my cycle is longer.

AF arrived this afternoon so into the next cycle. Going to see if I can get down to the pharmacy to pick up some opks.

Question about BBT reading – this morning I took my temp at the same time I do every day and had a reading of 97.6 but I was really stuffy and was sort of breathing through my mouth as I took my temp.  I doubted the validity of it so I retook the temp and forced my mouth to stay closed and it came in as 98.1.  So then I retook it again lol and it again came back as 98.1.  That’s the right temp, right?  The first one should be discarded since I was totally mouthbreathing?

AF arrived for me too so I’m out. I’ll be travelling around my expected next O date so don’t know if I’ll be able to roll call next month or not. Hoping to at least do better at temping though! 


Aprilbride2717 :  congratulations! I hope it’s a sticky bean.

Hi everyone!


I posted last month in the Dec. POAS thread. I was having my last round of dental work done during my fertile window, so we gave it a shot towards the very end. And it not surprisingly didn’t work out. 


Your age/partner’s age: 32/34


Baby #: 1


Current Cycle Day/DPO: cycle day 15


Ovulation Date: not sure, think I’m pretty close though.


POAS Date: will test on January 19th regardless of how many DPO. I’m having my birthday dinner that night and want to have an idea either way of whether I can have a drink or not.


Usual Cycle Length: 28/29 days


Cycles Trying: 1


BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): timing, cervical mucus tracking, Ovia app, prenatals, getting my thyroid tested.


Trying anything new this month? Nope! Trying to just have fun with it at first, not putting any pressure on 🙂


Link to your chart if charting: N/A


For fun: What are you most looking forward to in 2019? Going to Vegas in March to see a live show of my current favorite podcast (My Favorite Murder).


Good luck everyone!
