    Please girl, I've been done since August!

    A few more things here and there, but I'm mostly done.

    Wait, it's December, already?!

    I am a scrooge and I'm not getting anyone anything this year.

    Obligatory other!

    Posted this on other thread before realizing there was a part 2:


    jammer62:  I would have thought that too but I had major EWCM (glob) on Sunday and Monday and that’s usually what I get when I ovulate. I’ve charted past few cycles and the other cycles I have ovulated on CD 15 and 17. I had very familiar ovulation pains on Subsay and Monday as well- and the pains I’m experiencing now are lower. My post O temps were so low (not usual for me). FF gave me cross hairs for Mon as well.  So I guess we’ll see!  I’ve just never had ovulation symptoms like this before- and I’m 32!(lots of ovulation experience :o) )<br style=”box-sizing: border-box; margin: 0px; padding: 0px; max-height: 1000000px;” /><br />

    Congrats to all the BFPs! Decembers on a roll!

    AFM I am officially rolling over to January. Next FW falls around New Years so that should kick 2015 off right! Hoping this next cycle is shorter and I get better at this whole charting thing. Good luck to all the ladies waiting to test!

    I’ve got a question about charting: 


    my dog got into her food bin and gorged herself, resulting in lots of trips outside to the bathroom. She urgently woke me up two days ago and I got out of bed without thinking to take my temp. I went back to sleep for about an hour and half and then recorded my temperature and it was way lower.

    However, on FF it said that getting up and moving around would make it higher. Does this mean it’s an implantation dip? have other charters moved around before taking their temp? Did it go higher or lower than normal, for you personally? I know ita not a foolproof way to know if you’re PG or not but I am just passing the time and obsessing πŸ™‚ 


    heres my chart at the moment

    Baby #: First!

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: No clue when I actually O’ed, but my fertile window was the first week of December.  I usually have 30 days cycles, and my period is due on the 20th.  

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: I POAS yesterday, the 15th, and had a BFN.  Not ‘out’ as that is really early, but regardless, will probably re-test on the 19th or the 20th.  

    Cycles Trying: 2nd

    BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): BDing every other day, pre-natals.  Beyond that not temping or charting.  Trying to keep everything relaxed and as fun as we can, even though I am starting to panic a bit, and very very emotional this week!

    Just for fun: Are you doing any traveling this holiday season?: Just bouncing around from family to family around our city πŸ™‚

    Equine_Breeder:  Idk how much that would affect your temp. But I would think a dip that early would be a corpus luteum dip instead of an implantation dip. FX the implantation dip is just a few days away πŸ™‚

    Your age/partner’s age: 25/26

    Baby #: 1

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: It’s complicated! FF says CD16 and 3 DPO but we traveled internationally during this last month, which might have moved my O date up a almost a week so I’d say somewhere around 7DPO. 

    Ovulation Date: Sometime between Dec 7 and Dec 15

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Dec 23/30 days 

    Cycles Trying: None…. 

    BFP Plan (BD timing, charting, prenatals, supplements, etc.): Our “plan” was to start TTC in May, but we pulled a goalie our last night in Barcelona (just a few days after my period ended) but then my CM indicated I ovulated a few days earlier than normal. Woke up yesterday with super sore boobs, cramping and horrible back pain so now I’m in the TWW. Although it wasn’t the original plan, we’d both be thrilled if I were pregnant. 

    Link to Chart, if any: Didn’t chart at all this past month due to international vacation

    Just for fun: Are you doing any traveling this holiday season?: We are leaving on Dec 24 for a 2 weeks trip to Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand) and then a couple of days in Las Vegas with my parents. I plan to test the day before we leave and then maybe at some point during the trip is AF doesn’t show up like expected on Jan 1.

    I so want to do roll call again, but I’m out for Dec lol! Waiting until the January POAS thread! πŸ™‚

    Right now I’m on CD5 & whats looking like my last AF day this cycle.. So I’m planning on starting my OPK’s on Saturday… Is there any point to starting them the day after AF, or is it ok to wait a couple days?
