Heather: I hope you are right, that by this summer we will all be preggo and wallowing in hormones together!! I'm glad to hear that your SIL is doing better. I think it's great she's smart enough to know she needs a break and is willing to do it. Oh, and I squealed, too, when I saw that line on the FRER b/c it meant I could open the digitals.

Di: Glad to read that you are well and keeping busy. Fingers and toes crossed that tomorrow's temp goes up and that AF stays away for another 8 months! Yay for Vitex, too. :D

MJ: I hate that you got another BFN today. :hugs: It's still early, plus it's never over until AF shows up. I really hope she doesn't!

Faith: Dadgum it was only a qualitative test - BOO!! Being super emotional was my first tip off, though. I just kept taking stuff too personally or crying over little things. I hope that it means good things for you, too. I also had consistently creamy CM after O, until yesterday when it was watery. Tossing some babydust your way! Keep us posted when you test again. :)

Rochelle: Oooh, really hoping that your dip was implantation. "Textbook" is there for a reason!! FX you can mark that spotting as IB soon. :) And I know what you mean about the look from DH. I always got them from DH when my package would come in the mail with all my IC's (and this month my Soft Cups & progesterone cream). He was glad I had all of them this month, though.

Jillian: Oh, no!! I'm tossing all kinds of babydust your way and hoping your wrong about being out this month. You know, I kept feeling I was out and turns out, I was in. FX that's some IB. No IB for me, though, so I cannot help with the spotting question. :(

Mandi: Yay for u/s!! Such a beautiful, unforgettable sight. I'm glad Dragon is well and exactly as old as calculated (super cool). Eek on the weight loss. Hopefully the Zofran will help. 9lbs isn't bad (I lost 6 before I started gaining w/ DS), but of course, little Dragon will be wanting you to build up for him/her.

Amber, Lynn, & Claire (and of course, everyone else): Thanks so much for the congrats! It's been such an exciting day, and I'm so glad I have you wonderful ladies to share it with.

AFM: It's funny how many times I've really believed I was pregnant and wasn't, and now that I am, I don't feel like it. LOL. Doctor's appointment went well (just blood work). They called back with a 31.5 hCH and 18.99 progesterone, so they put me back on progesterone supplements (Dr. wants at least a 20). I was thrilled, though, b/c my prog. was only 12 when I was went in for bloodwork with DS and that was at 5.5 weeks! I guess the progesterone cream was helping. I also really believe the Soft Cups I used this cycle made a big difference. I have a hard time lying around for even 20 minutes after BD, and with those, I could leave them in for hours to keep those spermies trapped, lol.

GOOD LUCK and babydust to all you ladies testing in the next few days! I know that mine was just a first of many we're to see over the next week. May they just keep coming!!!! :jump:

With the exception of you, all three of these will be the first and only ones to know until we get closer to 12 weeks. I found a link on Pinterest for using a paperclip to drain an egg. I will do a few of these, dye them for Easter, and leave mini Easter baskets for these loved ones to open in private. Then they'll be able to crack the egg to discover a message, like a fortune cookie, that a new baby will arrive in December (or something along those lines). Very excited to pull it off as last time DH and I sort of screwed up the whole surprise of everything.

Manders Glad you were able to hear & see little dragon! Wishing you a happy & healthy 9 months :)

Kymbr Thank you so much for the sweet words! If I'm out, I'm out. There is not much I can do about it right? I'm just trying to stay poitive either way. If I am, then I'm going to start taking my temps & get an OPK for April. P.S. Love love love your ideas to tell your family :) Soooooooo cute!

Kymbr: Yay! :happyforyou: :wave:

Mandi: Can't wait to see pics of Dragon :) I hope he lets you start feeling better soon tho!

Jillian: I just checked your chart. Did you ever see EWCM? When do you think you ovulated? I remember you saying that you had O pains. Could be the spotting/clots is IB. FX for you!!

Heather: Glad your SIL is doing better. And sorry my Draw Something pics are so bad. :) I really need to get more coins to get some new colors. Haha.

Rochelle: FX your temp goes back up tomorrow. It didn't drop below crosshairs so you're still good!

Faith: Sorry to hear about your blood test. Wish they had given you the quantitative test so you could have known for sure. Wait a few more days and test again! When is AF due?

MJ: a lot of people don't get their + until day AF is due or later, so don't give up yet!

Amber: Keep testing!! :)

Claire: Welcome back!

Di: Your chart does look good this month! FX for a high temp tomorrow!

Nothing new for me. Just waiting around until O time. DH and I each got poison ivy on our arms last weekend from weeding in the backyard. We've been ripping out all sorts of brush and wild berry bushes and apparently there is a lot of poison ivy thrown in with it (everything was still brown, so we didn't see it)...only advantage to all the itching is that it gives me something to think about instead of my cycle :)

So much good news :)

Mandi, I teared up reading about seeing your dragon. I'm so sorry you are so sick, Zofran helps, I know several women who have had to use it. FX you feel better soon so you can bliss out in your pregnant state :)

Miss Claire- nice to read a bit about you. I love that you type with an accent lol Well, at least in my head you do.

Kymber- LOVE seeing that word :) So happy for you. And LOVE the idea of the eggies :)

Rochelle- spotting sounds promising! Either way yay for ovulation and a decent LP!

Di- Sorry to hear about the BFNs. I was SO sure you were knocked up. But hallelujia (sp?) for the longer LP!!! YAY Vitex! Have an awesome time with your friends, live your life to the fullest and do stuff you wouldn't do if you were knocked up :)

Jillian- not sure what to think about the spotting/clots. Some women see them in pregnancy. That is why you should test! LOL just kidding. I know that if I was spotting today I would think it was AF but I have a stack of BFNs to go with it. Stay positive until you know for sure. :)

Faith- Bummer about the blood test. How many DPO are you? It may be too early to catch on a yes/no. I understand your disappointment. I have had months where I am absolutely crushed. I have told myself to quit thinking of it as a monthly thing and look more at the big picture. It WILL happen, and when it does we will look back on this time and it won't seem as dramatic or heart wrenching.

Heather- I didn't comment before about your SIL, but thank God for you and your DH to be able to be a safe place for her to fall. You are angels for her. Glad she is feeling better :)

MJ- BOO to the BFNs. But you aren't alone!

AFM my temp went up this am which I wasn't expecting. I didn't have any tests in the house and let myself get my hopes up. POAS when I got home and it was stark white. It has been such an odd cycle for me. Chart is crazy, I am sure I'm not pregnant but I still hold on to hope. If I don't see AF by Saturday I will know I O'd later than I thought. But I am anticipating a temp drop tomorrow or Friday.

The good news is, it is feeling like spring here!!! And I am wrapping up a session of classes and will have a nice holiday in Jasper starting later next week. I am very excited to run and hike and play in the mountains for 4 days without my phone or computer or anyone who needs anything from me :)

Kim My chart is not 100% yet, I have not started temping yet. If I am out this cycle, I will begin to temp/opk with the coming cycle in April. :) I had more of the EGCM before I O'd & then after I O'd, it was more "sticky." 3 different times this week, I had sharp pains in my right ovary. Was it the egg making itself a nice little nest? Only the next few days will tell. :)

Amber AF is due April 2nd, so I am roughly 5 days away from the :af: showing her face. Usually at this point in my cycle, I start having "spotting," but not the little clots? I'm not sure what to make of all of this. LOL At this point, it's just a waiting game :) Keeping my fingers crossed for you, but if not this month, then next month, right? :) Enjoy your time off sweets!!!!

Well that would put you around 9dpo? Which is about perfect for IB. And way to early for AF. Sounds like a burrowing blastocyte to me!

Preeti Sounds like you are staying positive, which is a good thing :) Do not feel bad about grabbing a few drinks or smokes, I did that myself this month, to be honest. Sometimes, with the stress of ttc, you need to take a mini break for yourself ya know? :) :hugs:

Di Keeping everything crossed for you!!! Keep us posted!!!! I hope you get that BFP soon!!!!!! :)

Rochelle Booooooooooo for the :af: , but YAY for the shorter cycle!!!

ASM, I'm about 75% sure the :af: is on her way! Booooooo!!!!! I'm still spotting today, but several times today, it was more red than brown. If that's the case, I am ok with it. At least this month AF was not late & I did not have to test, to get that bfn & then be bummed for several days. There is always next month!!! :)

Ladies, I need your help! I've been using ff.com, but not temping. I watched the videos, but I still have a lot of ?'s as to how the whole thing works. I know to test every day, at the same time, before getting up etc. I plug it into my calendar & it will do the rest for me. My question is, what do the temps. mean? As in, will my temp spike when I am about to O? Will ff.com tell me when it looks like I am about to O?

Also, how do OPK work? How often should I test? When do I test?
When I think O is near? A certain # of days after AF??

Please PM me any info :)

Thanks so much!!!!

Hi jillian

I'm no expert but the OPK I have had a list advising on which cycle day to start testing depending on cycle length. For example I am 29 days so it advises me to start cd11....and I usually O around cd18.

Nt sure if there is some other better way but I've been doing that so hope it's right!!!
