@Blondee: I work in the medical field too and am going to nursing school soon – we make the WORST patients, so I totally understand. Pleeeeeease get to the doctor! My doctor r/o endo with a CA125 marker, he said that was a fairly good way of detecting it? But I also have no symptoms like you have…

@ChuckNorris: yes, DH is quite proud if himself, I dont think he really needs the ego boost even more, but I told him anyway. Now have to condend with that for the rest of the evening.
@luli29: I don’t consider myself superstitious, but I am going to wait to get a test/EDD from a doctor before I start thinking about all that.
Still keeping my eyeout, and hopes up for ya other girls!!!!!

@anotherbee: Well, fingers crossed that everything goes well =) KEEP US POSTED! Are you going to test tomorrow??
Hehehe you’re too funny 😉 We should be POAS buddies! I should be POASing on September 23. Maybe I will break early, especially if my temp stays up. We can keep each other in check and not test =)
Rest of the evening? I don’t think he will let you live this down for the rest of your LIFE hahaha =) Too funny.

Disclaimer – this is our first month actually TTC/paying attention to what day in my cycle – so forgive me if I don’t know what I’m talking about as far as when I O’d or how early I can POAS 🙂
CD or DPO: I am 2DPO…(I think?)
Symptoms: I have been having weird cramps since yesterday – like AF cramps…but …different. It’s hard to explain but the cramps feel similar to period cramps but different. Yes, I realize I just repeated myself, haha…I’m having a hard time articulating this! The point is, there are cramps. I usually do not have cramps at this time of my cycle.
POAS Date: If my O date was between 9/5 and 9/8 (I’m not temping so I’m not sure of the exact date it occurred), then I think I can do an early response test on 9/16 or 9/17.
Any tips for distracing yourself during TTC? Absolutely! I am planning to deep clean the house for fall – you know, like spring cleaning, except I don’t spring clean and the house is way past nasty. I also have eleventy billion craft projects started that I have abandoned halfway through, plus I love to cook new meals thanks to Pinterest, PLUS I am supposed to be training for a half marathon. I’m just lazy and would rather sit around watching Netflix than do any of the above

@ChuckNorris: Yea we will still be TTC… But I’m going to be out of town when I O… We’ll still BD when we can but probably not have any real chance… I’ll still be temping and OPKs to make sure my cycles are fairly normal…

@ChuckNorris: Yep!! Will POAS tomorrow with FMU 🙂

This is our first cycle TTC, so i am pretty convinced I couldn’t have gotten pregnant that easily!
CD or DPO: 8DPO
Symptoms: I have been sooo moody lately which i don’t feel is normal this soon before AF. My breasts are ridiculously tender and so are my nipples which NEVER happens. Had back ache and stomach aches all last week. Basically though i think i am just crazy. Crazy dreams too.
POAS Date: I am going to wait to see if AF is late(due the 16). I feel like if i POAS before that i will be crazy about it. LOL
Any tips for distracing yourself during TTC? I am in school right now, so i really just need to focus on that. Hard when you don’t like it and TTC is SOOO much more fun! Basically i am just lazy and doing nothing. My parents moved in with us for a few weeks until their new house is ready….counting down the days! BUT my mom is rooting for a BFP, although she does think i am crazy LOL

Current Cycle Day: 75
POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: every 2weeks… Ish. The last 5 cycles were: 44, 64, 29, 96, and 80 days long. Yeah…
Cycles trying: About 2 years of NTNT and 6 months of trying. 13 months of charting and 40 dats of using ovulation kits. Yay.
BD timing: hmm… Hard to say. At least 3 or 4 times a week. We work the exact opposite shift. So, when I’m at work he is sleeping. On our days off we get freaky. Lol.
Words of wisdom/something uplifting to say: make a bucket list of things you want to do before children, and start doing it!

12 dpo, bfn! No surprise! Just want AF to hurry herself up now! Boobs still very sore and felt sick this morning so I think it’s going to be a nasty period this month. I’ve already stuffed my work bag with heavy duty pain killers in preparation!
@ChuckNorris: I will speak to him tonight. Sorry to not have done it already but I wanted to hear from you that you didn’t mind me sharing your info first.

12 dpo and bfn this morning. Temp was below the CL again, so I’m ruling myself out.
Atleast (it looks like) I o’d! Small victories 🙂

I know most of you prob already know this but stay away from anything with hibiscus in it. I stupidly took tablets with it in over the weekend and later read the leaflet inside, freaked out then googled hibiscus. It’s bad if ttc! It’s in some herbal teas too. Think I screwed my chances up for this month and am super bummed.
