I want to join in the fun!
CD1, and first cycle for me — I stopped birth control at the end of December and have been spotting for several days now (TMI?), but AF finally showed this morning. For the first time in my life I was very impatient to get my period!
I’m guessing I’ll O around February 4/5, so I’ll try to stop myself from testing before Feb. 19. I also have a preconception appointment with my GYN on Feb. 8, but I’ve been taking prenatals, eating healthy less poorly, and exercising more.
I hope we see lots of BFPs in this group over the next few weeks! Is anyone else super excited, but also freaking the eff out? I can’t be the only one.

@MarryMeTiffany: This may be a ridiculous questions but when are you taking the OPK’s? I never get a positive when I take them with FMU, they recommend that you take them between 2 and 6pm with a 4 hour urine hold to get the most accurate results. Maybe you’ve just been testing in the wrong window?

I got a smiley face on my OPK 2 days ago and I took it at 5 PM. It’s my first time using OPK during this TTC process. I didn’t know I was going to be that excited and felt so much joy seeing a smiley face. I felt a little bit crazy for a sec. I should’ve ovulated yesterday which was my CD14 or either today. I’m just trying to stay positive and calm.
@MarryMeTiffany: I hope you get your positive OPK soon!! Or have fun BD because you just never know 🙂

@Running Elley: I have been using them at 3pm with a 3 hour urine hold. I pee alot during the day so anything of 3 hours and I feel like I’m going to explode. I thought my CM was changing the other day but it was a false alarm 🙁 it’s still milky/lotiony.

CD16 and no signs of O’ing… I’m still hopeful that I’m not having another 50+ day cycles… hey, I can be optimistic right??? Ugh.

@MarryMeTiffany: I’m kind of amazed at how relaxed I am this month. I think breaking that one-year-TTC barrier and going on vacation on CD1 kind of set this month up to be super chill. I love charting and using OPKs, because I’m fairly obsessive anyhow, but it does add a lot of stress when you’re first waiting for AF to end, then waiting for a positive OPK, then waiting for a temperature spike, then waiting for AF to show (or not) again. We’ll see how things go this time…not sure if I can give up my OPKs for good.

@redsmarties: It’s funny you say that, because this is month 13/14 for us, and I’m suddenly feeling calm, too. Weird, eh?

today is CD7. So far my temps have been up and down like crazy. DH and I are just trying to BD alot more during the time leading up to and right after when I typically O. For some reason I am feeling more anxious this month. Probably because the doctor gave me 2 months to get pg before they intervene……

Ugh my chart is insane this month and like a lot of you ladies I’m just hoping I O at this point. I usually do on CD17, but I’m now on CD19 and I’ve got nada. We’ve BD’ed like crazy people despite DH’s slipped disc, so it would really suck if I just didn’t O at all this go around.

@FutureJessicaMcB: That’s awful that your doctor made you feel that way. I’ve actually heard the opposite, that it’s good for you to test early and know because if you have more than one chemical pregnancy it might mean that there is something wrong with the implanting. I can’t remember which bee said that their doctor recommended it, but someone did.

@redsmarties: What sort of ‘schedule’ did your RE give you? My doctor gave us strict EVERY OTHER DAY and no more schedule so we’re keeping to that. It’s sort of nice to not have to worry about ‘perfect’ timing. We starting BDing on CD 10 and every other day after that til CD 20, I usually O about CD 14. I’m on CD 13 so hopefully it’s SOON:) Good luck!!

I’ll join in! It’ll be more like late Feb, for me. This is our first month TTC, so not getting my hopes up, but it sure would be nice!

Just wanted to share a little good news… ALL of my bloodwork is back and she was very impressed. Said I should be golden. Hubby’s results aren’t in yet, though.
She offered clomid today and is letting me think about it. One reason we want to get pregnant NOW is because if we have a baby later than planned, my income changes SIGNIFICANTLY. We discussed this which is how Clomid came up again.
So I’ve decided that since I’m already doing the OPK, we’ll see if I’m onvulating or not and if I don’t, Clomid it is.

Yay, I’m happy to hear that they’ve made some progress! Here’s to hoping this will be your cycle!

CD9 so I should be “O” the 30th. But I’m positive I’m ovulating from the sluggish ovary so it may be later. BD every other day. Hopefully we’ll make a connection this month. Only one more cycle to try before RE will require us to go medicated.
