sunsetsnmargaritas :  This past cycle, and the cycle before, I got 1 high reading before a peak… that’s it… literally 1!

Thank you for your kind words, darling<3  I’ve decided to start testing at 9dpo.  Even if I do have another CP, I would much rather know so I can alert my midwife group.

Took a test at 9 DPO-ish (didn’t temp or anything this past month) and it was negative. I have been super nauseous and just exhausted these last couple of days. I am thinking it might just be me getting back to normal after 2.5 weeks in Greece. Aunt Flo is supposed to show up on Wed. If she doesn’t, I’ll test again this weekend, if she does, I’m already rolled over for Oct!

SeaOfLove :  just one?!? Ahh! Lol. I’ll probably miss it when I’m at work 🙄 haven’t even noticed CM changes yet, so I’m kind of hoping that when I do notice my CM changing that my OPKs will reflect that as well. Do you notice your OPKs getting darker when you have fertile CM?

sunsetsnmargaritas :  Honestly, mine didn’t even get darker at all until the one before I O’d the past two cycles.  My CM is what helped me the most.  I was taking two a day starting at CD 10 my peak was declining on CD 15.

Sansa85 :  I take it twice a day morning (when i remember) and evening before bed. I took it with my first until i got the positive, and then I weaned off it.

Jazzylove :  Aw, thank you! It’s okay – I didn’t get my hopes up, which helped a lot.

I posted a big plan on the October POAS thread, but came to a realization of sorts at work today:

I’ve been pulling out all the stops and trying tons of different things (temping, charting, OPKs, CM, etc)…and it hasn’t been working. All it’s been doing is stressing me out!

So if it’s not working anyway…screw it! At least for the next month or so, haha. Starting tomorrow, I’m not temping (so no more waking up at 6am on weekends), not charting, not doing ANYTHING except having DH and I take some supplements and BD as much as we want! 

We put so much pressure on ourselves to get that BFP when it’s supposed to be fun. So, we’re going to make it fun and stop fussing! FX to you!! <3

I’m sorry to hear about all the CPs ad BFNs this month. Sending lots of love to you all ❤️

Thanks everyone for your support with what’s going on with my Mother-In-Law. We’ve decided to go ahead with TTC and managed to hit all our TI instructions this cycle despite everything. We also got everything else in order to move in a few months, so the stress is starting to come down.

I’m 1DPO now and feeling very unhopeful about our chances this cycle. Maybe it will work like a reverse jinx for me, or maybe I’m just getting premonitions. Either way, I start progesterone tomorrow and have HCG labs on the 29th at 14DPO, but I’ll probably start testing by 9DPO. I would have missed my first CP if I hadn’t tested at 9DPO, and as sad as I still am about that loss I think not knowing is worse.
