@misskittykakes: I honestly find that logging my temps makes me LESS crazy about TTC. It gives me some peace of mind, and I don’t feel the need to POAS every day past 1 DPO ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s helpful to see what your body is up to as well. I never get a clear positive on OPK’s so it’s nice to see a definate temp spike and to watch them stay elevated until AF.

Speaking of temps, no spike for me this morning really. Maybe tomorrow! I’ll just keep that BD train rolling for now…

@FutureMrsHCanada: I’m just not good with logging temps because of my late bathroom breaks. My chart would look funky. So, I’m trying to take the approach of just go on with life and know when AF is supposed to arrive. I’m actually happy that it’s super busy this month to distract me from POAS’ing constantly.

@brox: I hear that. If I so much as roll over before I take my temp it can be a little off. I started to give me peace of mind that I was even ovulating, as my OPK’s were always only half dark and I have no idea what that means! I find it kind of fun now though, (nerd). If I took late night bathroom breaks I think I would have given up though. Even a .1 difference makes your chart look whacko sometimes…the things we do to get pregnant!

@FutureMrsHCanada: I’m lucky that OPKs are always dark on a certain day. I haven’t had that problem. It’s just the getting pregnant thing. I’ve enjoyed this cycle so far without the need for external lubrication! I also didn’t Mucinex it up either. I actually think it wasn’t helping my CM. This cycle feels like a good learning experience of what we were doing wrong last cycles. Every cycle I learn something new.

@brox: We seem to have the opposite challenges with our TTC experiences! My CM is great! I just don’t know when to put it to best use… ๐Ÿ™‚ I was actually down in the States in November and I bought some pre seed just in case. I haven’t used it yet though, as that’s not our “problem area”. We can’t get it in Canada without ordering it (that I know) of so I couldn’t pass up the chance to get it just in case I want to ever use it! I think next month we’re just going to BD every other day. We’re bound to catch it that way.

@FutureMrsHCanada: You put your CM to best use around mid-cycle in the days before and after ovulation. Checking the CM quality will help with that. Though reading CM is like reading a Tarot card. Since my doctor discouraged external lubricants and I had plenty CM during O time, we went without it. I actually wish that we focused on my CM in previous cycles. I wish that I didn’t go all crazy on the Mucinex, etc. because with a little foreplay, we’re lubricant free. My husband’s still adjusting to it, but I like it alot more than Pre (PreSeed’s external lubricant).

@brox: Sorry, I know the GENERAL time of when to use it, I should have said it’s finding out when I am actually O’ing that is the hard part! ๐Ÿ™‚ Hey, if you ask me, the more foreplay the better! Makes a world of difference! I am trying to pay really close attention to my CM this cycle….the things I never thought I would be doing…

how is everyone doing? i’m 9 DPO and trying to distract myself so i don’t obsess about testing too early! all the “symptoms” i’ve had could easily be typical pre-period stuff, so i’m still pretty doubtful. just as a precaution i’ve been avoiding caffeine and going without coffee is killing me!

@ecomaha: It totally is tempting…but at least if I go with the lower temp that means I haven’t ovulated yet, so I can make sure DH and I BD like crazy the next few days ๐Ÿ™‚

OMG!!  I had a very faint line on one of those cheap tests yesterday, but this is pretty clear to see!

@bunnylovesbear: Congrats!

 

I’m wondering how “pregnant” I should feel at 9DPO. Not feeling particularly weird, one way or another. I’m going to hold out on testing until Saturday I think. I might test on Friday morning because it’s my company Christmas party that night.
