2017 Baby Buddies (6)

Postby BeeCee33 » Tue Feb 07, 2017 9:47 am

This is a continuation of the previous 2017 Baby Buddies thread found here: viewtopic.php?f=22&t=245665

New peeps, please read:

This is an established buddy group that is getting very large. We have been going by our first names just to get to know each other better, but it's getting hard to keep up with everyone! If you'd like to join, feel free, all are welcome. But be warned that you might feel kind of lost in a sea of people who know each other pretty well and you might want to consider starting a new group. :) We have a lot of people join and then disappear, which makes it hard to keep the members list current, so please only join if you are confident that you want to keep up with a busy thread! So, if you feel like you'd like to join, please tell us your first name and introduce yourself!

Rough members list: (I'm adding the most active or established members. If your name isn't on here, it's simply because we haven't heard from you in awhile and I'll add it if you become active on this current thread!)

So it takes two days of elevated temps for the crosshairs to appear on FF, right Becca?

How's everyone else doing?

FINALLY!!!!

My temp took a small, but possibly significant jump this morning, and I was feeling what I thought were O pains yesterday, so I was thinking that maybe this messed up cycle just produced a weak LH surge that was taking a long time to reach my urine. I was kind of expecting to not get a true positive and to see a big temp just this morning.

So I'm not sure what to think now that I got my positive OPK. I feel like my earlier theory could be correct, but I am seeing watery cm this morning so I'm thinking I may O tomorrow. But I usually O 2 days after my first positive OPK. So basically, O day could be anywhere from yesterday to this Thursday. My best guess is today or tomorrow. We'll keep BDing for the next couple of days to be safe. :)

Maggie, it takes 3 elevated temps. You will likely see crosshairs after 2 more temps are added, just because that was a nice jump from your most recent temps. The fact that you have some earlier temps that are in today's range might mean that you will have to wait one more day (so 3 temps that are higher than today's temp) for FF to add crosshairs. Even if it takes an extra day to get crosshairs, it will still put O at the beginning of the temp rise usually.

While that temp spike looks as though it should indicate O, I can't say that with 100% confidence, so I'd probably keep BDing and see what tomorrow's temp looks like. If it goes up, you are probably safe to assume O has indeed occurred.

Yay Becca!!!

Get down and get to it!

;)

Maggie - FF has changed my cross hairs three times this month (yea, three, THREE!!!) and the reason was because I didn't use OPK's (truth be told I only had 2 in the box and when they were both negative and I knew I wasn't trying this month anyway, I wasn't too bothered buying more)

I was tracking my temp and my CM but I had more fertile CM than usual and a whole heap of temp spikes so every 3 days for about a week and a half, FF changed my cross hairs and my O days!

Takes a little bit to get used to!

Awesome Becca! I'm so happy you finally got your positive opk!

Feeling out this month already. My temp has already dipped below the cover line :(

Woohoo Becca! I knew that positive was coming today. Very interesting that your temp jumped a little bit this morning.. it might just be a fluke. Tomorrow morning's temp should give you more insight... BD the night away (and tomorrow too ;)

Maggie that's a pretty big jump- I bet you'll get your O confirmation in a couple of days- your BD'ing schedule matches up great with your suspected O day too- how exciting!

My temp went up a little today. I think my pre-O temps were just a little higher than normal which made my cover line super high. Trying not to focus too much on temps, I feel confident I O'd so just need to wait it out. I'm 6 DPO today and will begin testing at 8 DPO.

Anyone else going to start testing soon?

Finally some crosshairs! :)

FF still determined CD19 as O, but my other app says CD18. Temp climbing slowly more and more :)
And at the moment, having some "ovulation type" cramping on my right side so hoping that's a good sign :)
Becca congrats on the positive OPK! Finally! So happy for you. This month is totally our month!

I think we're going to BD tonight and tomorrow night just to be safe, but it's so exciting! I've had some light almost pulling sensations near my ovaries, so hopefully that's a good sign!

Ahhhh, get it, Anita, I think you may be in. Do you have plans to BD the next couple of days? I have another App that says I O'd yesterday, and to BD tonight. I use Fertility Friend and My Period Tracker Deluxe (which I had used pre TTC). They're pretty close with keeping it within the same week for a fertile period.

Babydust!

Hello everyone!

Becca- I guess that means we are cycling together! I triggered last night!

Veronica- I have been testing up until yesterday. Had 2 days of blinky smiles so my RE said go ahead and do my trigger shot. Good luck to ya!

AFM- Today I am CD14. Had another US on Sun and looks like 3-4 follicles on the L and 1 perfect sized one on the R. My L tube was found to be super narrow, my RE said to basically count it out of commission. BUT, they still had me sign some informed consent forms before proceeding this cycle, because of the multiple follicles on the L. If I do get pregnant this cycle, there is a 10-15% chance of twins and a 5% of multiple gestations. YIKES! The hubby and I signed the forms tho. When you go down the road of fertility treatment you have to expect the possibility of multiples. With the L tube being so narrow I'd be shocked.....but stranger things have happened. Per doctor's orders we BD'd last night, and have dates to go again tonight and tomorrow. Good thing it snowed the other day, so we have an extra reason to stay in bed. lol.

I have been keeping good track of my weight, the temps have been sporadic at best. I figure taking my temp at all is an improvement. Its been pretty consistent, had a slight dip yesterday. Did not track any of my vitals today since I took my Ovidrel last night.

Good wishes and vibes to all of you!

Question: What's the deal with eating pineapple after ovulation? I've been drinking pineapple juice for the past couple of days to help with drainage, but I'm curious why people eat it.

Maggie- It's not so much pineapple, it's pineapple core. The core contains bromelain which is supposed to help increase blood flow (reduces inflammation) and can help aid in implantation. You're only supposed to eat it on 1-5 DPO. I tried it one cycle and it didn't work, but I know lots of people try it and have ended up pregnant (could be coincidence, but who knows!) It definitely can't hurt!
