:jump: I hope everyone gets a sticky bean go around! :jump:

Ok, so I'm on CD 11 wait to O, using OPTs and haven't gotten a positive test yet. I am hoping to beat the control line by Monday.

How's everyone doing?

lunaluna - do you mind if I join? I will be mostly lurking and commenting for a bit. Not actually participating until I recover completely from my m/c. I am still waiting for the bleeding to stop and get my first AF.

Good luck with the opts!! FX for a dark line on Monday :)

Welcome Bilson, I hope you are feeling better. I took a break after my MC too so I completely understand. You will know when you are ready again.

Did you get a negative HPT yet? I started cycling again about 4 weeks after I got my first negative HPT.

I glad you are here! =)

Hey ladies
Mind if I join in too. I'm cycle day 7 today and af just left yesterday. I'm hoping my opk's come in the mail today.
After my m/c in 06 I bleed for about 3 1/2 weeks then still spotted for a while. I was 11-12 weeks pg. Blison I totally get the still bleeding and the daily reminder of what was. I'm so sorry for your loss. As Luna said you'll know when your ready.
Looking forward to getting to know you guys better.

Hi Lesley - please join! I am so sorry for your loss too. That must have been really tough for you.

I guess I am just surprised that it is taking so long considering how far along I was.

I see you are a teacher..me too - what do you teach? I teach grade 2 an 3

Nice that AF is gone for you :)

Hi everyone!

bilson, I'm so sorry for your loss. I also had a m/c at 8-9 weeks 3 years ago. Didn't think we would TTC again but here we are!

I am now on CD 11. I've been using OPKs for the first time this cycle and no dark line yet! I started taking baby aspirin this cycle as well.

FX for everyone! :luck:

Hello Everyone!

This is great our group is growing!

Here is my update:

I got a :bfp: on the OPT on Easter Sunday! What a relief. I was beginning to wonder if I ever was. We BD Sunday night and this AM. My DP has an injured knee so I was glad we were able to do the deed! I am going to test later today to see what the OPT says. I honestly think that we have been missing the egg before without these OPT test. I was just determining my O date by the FF prediction and the O pain I usually get. What I noticed is that I actually O later than FF predicted and that I got O pains on CD 11 although I didn't get a positive OPT until CD 13. My boobs were really sore yesterday too so that's a O sign I go with now too.

Teaching Mom, what kind of OPTs did you order?

Bilson, I am so sorry that you are still bleeding. I have to say that I really admire your spirit. You seem to be doing so much better that I did with my MC and I didn't even bleed as long as you did. I hope this is behind you sooner than later and that your spirit remains resilient.

So looks like everyone is a teacher so far! I am a substitute teacher, full time college student (still) and a certified Personal Fitness Trainer with a emphasis on prenatal fitness.

Anyone is welcome to join us, if someone new is reading this!

luna - so happy that you got that pos. on the OPT...I really think they helped dh and I get our BFP. It was our 3rd month using them and it was only time I really got a blazing pos. on it...I will definitely use them next go round..

I am trying to stay positive - of course I feel like crap every time I look at a calendar and realize I would be this far along - or my due date was this date...blah blah blah - IT REALLY DOES SUCK! I am glad to have you ladies to chat with :)

Looking forward to May - it has got to be a better month, hopefully one filled with BFPs for all of us!!!

Luna congrats on the pos opk. Sorry about hubs knee hopefully it was all worth it and you caught that egg!!!!
I ordered my opks off amazon the green handled ones not sure of the brand I think wonderflo but don't quote me on that. :D

Blison I teach 2nd grade. I love it most days but this year 18 of my 25 students are boys and they have a huge case of springitis. :( I'm one of thw weird ones who'd vote for school year round or to start earlier.It seems after state testing we never get much accomplished.

I'm glad the group is growing!! hopefully lots of BFPs for all of us soon.

Hi everyone! I have been lurking and wanted to say hi :) DH and I are not "actively" ttc. Our DD just turned 2 and my DH is interested in practicing, lol. I of course secretly hope we will BD on the right day. We don't BD often as we have busy busy work schedules and a toddler, but it only took once w/ my DD, so anything can happen, right?! I just started using OPK's this cycle. I thought I O'd really early according to CM and OPK's, but then I finally got a SUPER +OPK and there was no doubt. I still have a slim chance this cycle (see my chart in sigy). I turn 34 this Saturday and I really want to have another baby before 35, so I'm running out of time, lol.

Good luck to everyone!! I look forward to seeing updates!! I will be keeping my fingers crossed that we all see :bfp: soon :jump: :jump:

Bilson, I know how you feel. When my due date passed in March, I had a really, really hard time. Several other girls were due around the same time and it was really an emotional coaster ride. We will have good days and bad days I guess. It does get better though. Just allow yourself to go through all the stages and know it's nothing you did! I wish you all the best!

Hello Ladies,

I got another positive OPT today. I assuming this is normal? Yes, no? And if you get multiple OPT tests, what day do you consider O day?
