@brox:  I’m with you this month!  After a crushing AF last month I decided this month that I won’t be looking into any ‘symptoms’.  I’ll just assume I’m not til AF is late πŸ™‚  I hope I’m able to stick to that!

@ecomaha: Yep, I’m thinking that it’s the best way to approach it. I’m really trying hard not to read into my breasts hurting and all of the time right now as well still having some CM though I’m post ovulation. These are the two weird things I’ve noticed about this cycle so far. I need to be distracted with Christmas knitting right now and a party on Tuesday I’m hosting.

I instituted a new drinking rule for myself. I only drink during AF, after that nothing. I figure it helps with the sadness of starting a new cycle over again and cuts down on the drinking in general.

@brox:   Yes, keeping busy, at least for me, is key!  I’m glad it’s the holidays right now and there is plenty to do!  However, I’m actually going the oppostite way with drinking πŸ™‚  After being a stickler about drinking for me and my poor husband the last few months, I’ve decided this month to just do whatever we would normally do.  Too much speculation for me never helps πŸ™‚

I was even thinking a glass a day during the TWW sounded pretty good πŸ˜‰

I’m in. I’m on CD21 today, 5DPO based on the CBEFM’s little egg drop. I’m trying to not test until December 10, which is 14DPO. I don’t really know when to expect AF because she’s been a little flightly lately. The latest I might expect her is December 12, but I don’t think I can wait that long.

@ecomaha: Yeah, for me, it’s just a personal choice. I feel like AF is the cut loose time because I know that there’s no chance in pregnant at that time. It makes AF easier on me. I’ve noticed that since we’ve started TTC, both of us have been drinking less in general. I even have him drinking a natural diet soda which he both likes and slightly guilts himself into drinking because it’s better than the chemical heavy stuff. I also switched us last night to a healthy whipped butter and butter sub (Nature’s Choice, I believe) instead of margarine. I felt like we were pumping ourselves full of bad stuff with it, so switching it up a bit for both of our health sake.

I’d really love some sushi right now. I haven’t had it in so long! It’s part a TTC thing and part just not going out for it. Tonight, I’m having an Italian beef sandwich! I’m way too excited for it!

Hi Ladies!

I hope it’s okay if I join in. This is our 4th cycle TTC and I should be Oing anytime now, today I think! AF is due on December 19, although I’m hoping not to see her face. I usually just lurk and not post but for my own sanity I think I need to talk with some girls who understand!

@FutureMrsHCanada:  Oh my!   You’re almost exactly the same as me, waiting to see my temp spike and then AF is ‘scheduled’ for the 19th.  Hopefully neither of us see her nasty face this month!  GOOD LUCK TO US BOTH!!  πŸ™‚

Oh and this is our 4th cycle too!

@ecomaha: Ooooooh cycle twins! I’m hoping to see that spike tomorrow morning, which would have me O’ing today. I usually O a bit early, but watch, this month I won’t! Good luck to you as well!

Alright, I am in! CD 12 right now, O is just around the corner.  Period is projected around the 17th-18th, although the progesterone has lengthened my cycle a little bit so it might be more like the 20-21st.

@ecomaha: yay, date twins!! fingers crossed for you too πŸ™‚ 

I took my temp this morning and it was 97.9, which is what it was yesterday (I would have thought that it would have gone up, since I think I’m ovulating/about to). So then I took it again (which I know I know, is a bad idea!) and it wa 98.1…I’m guessing I shoudl go with the first temp, right?

Soo…I’m hoping I’m not jnxing myself, but here’s the story of my morning. 

So I randomly woke up at 4am last night (this morning?) with a bit of a bloated bellyache and a full bladder. I was planning to test thing morning because I’m heading out with the girls tonight, and although I’m only 7DPO, I wanted a little peace of mind to have a glass of wine or two. Well, I POAS, BFN.

Then, when I woke up again, this time at my regular 7am, I decided, what the heck, I’ll test again. And hopefully I’m not totally jumping the gun here, but I SWEAR I saw a faint line. So I fished through the trash, so I could compare to my 4am test, and they were definitely different. Eeee!

I’m trying not to get my hopes up, and I had to rush out the door this morning, so I don’t have a photo to share. I have a really busy night, so I won’t even be able to upload anything after work, either. However, I’d love for everyone to keep their fingers crossed that I get a more clear line in the morning!
