I think your chart looks really good! I can't wait to see your test this morning. :fingersx:

Yeah, pipes still completely frozen haha - it's currently -7F, but is going to be much warmer today than yesterday so hoping to have some luck!

I have played with my new thermometer! I like it a lot. I was going to start temping this AM, but ended up waking up so many times, plus I slept pretty uh.. nude.. so. Decided it wasn't going to be a good temp anyway. I did, however, get a high reading on my advanced OPK this AM. I'm considering not temping at all now considering I'm about to be traveling for a few days. Tonight and tomorrow night will be all the BD we can do this cycle. PLUS - like I said before - If I were to get pregnant this cycle I would be due around the time of my DD's bday so I'm still going to try, but maybe not as hard this cycle. hehe

The progesterone cream: you put it in your armpits right? So odd about one sore boob! I've seen that be a promising symptom before - only one sore boob. lol!

Hope all the kids are on the mend!

Crap I had my post all typed out then I hit wrong button. Grrr

Nothing on today's test not even a temp rise. I put the cream on inner arms, neck, breasts, abdomen I alternate or that's what the bottle says to do.

Ah that sucks you won't get to bd as much this cycle. I hope you get your peak before you have to leave. I hope your pipes thaw soon. Maybe since you are traveling your o will be delayed till you come home :)

Ooh! Saw your temp went up a little! :jump:

I was really hoping to see a peak reading today and have a super early O like last cycle, but no such luck. :( We're going to BD today and that's all we can do with this cycle! It's also looking like the ex won't get served until after the kids and I have left so that's a definite plus as far as I'm concerned.

I finally took my temp this morning and really like the new thermometer! It did seem to take a little longer and like you said, was a little hard to hear. I love it otherwise! The light is great and I love that it stores temps.

Shoot I was hoping for you a peak reading today. Maybe it will hold off till you get home. Did you actually hear the thermometer go off? I can't hear it when I try to vag temp. I'm waiting for my FRER to process. Fully expecting bfn though.

So I got the faintest of lines so I'm not sure it's not just an indent. I'll post pic for amusement. I think it looks too close to control line.

No same. I kinda think it might be where the urine gets caught under the window and it's causing the line. I'm waiting on Dh to leave and I'm going to take it apart and examine that thing!! I don't want him to see me being a crazy ttcer! Haha

Bfn this morning but I kinda feel pg. I don't know what to think. Nauseous and hungry and cramping. Guess it could be the progesterone. Cervix is really high too.

:hi: I'm back! Hope the kids were well enough for you all to visit your nephew yesterday!

OMG you won't guess what happened.. Ex ended up getting served way sooner than I thought and was served Tuesday night!! Surprisingly he didn't try to start a fight with me.

Pretty sure O day is today and FF gave me a dotted line, which is fine since I haven't been able to keep up with this cycle too much. Was able to BD first thing yesterday AM and planning on it again the second we're home and the kids are occupied. LOL! Watch this be my lucky cycle.

Sorry to hear you've been crampy and spotting. :( And those indents are crummy!

Well I'm glad you got some bd in!! We are in kc. I just have my little one with me. My older kids stayed with my mom. We are staying in a suite with my Inlaws. Bel hardly slept lastnight and it was pretty rough. She hates the pack n play. I'm glad your ex didn't start anything with you. I'm still just spotting. Barely reaching the pad. I did start the vitex and Maca and stopped the progesterone. Dh is taking Maca too willingly. Hope this is your lucky cycle! Enjoy your kiddos!

You talked him into taking it?!

I wish Alex would. I bought Maca and L-Carnitine for him a while back then I started taking the Maca when I learned it offset the sex turn off and energy sapper of the Vitex.

How's your flow today? I hope the spotting stopped!! Did you bring any tests with you?

Sorry been MIA. Things MUCH different when the kids are home! haha! I'm sure you can relate :)

Got a big temp dip this AM. Would have thought it was O if all other signs weren't pointing to a few days ago. I think it's my first real fallback. It supposedly only happens at 2DPO, but I usually always get a tiny decrease on 3DPO and have always assumed it was a fallback. Maybe I'm wrong. I can't get a straight answer as to why I always have a little decrease 3DPO. Anyway so today I have a real fallback temp if I am, in fact 2DPO. Hoping for solid CHs tomorrow. I thought yesterdays temp was a bit low, but my cervix was definitely not ripe like the days prior! We DTD just to be safe. ;)

Having a play date and making homemade pasta with friends this afternoon!

My temps were a little lower than prev month with new thermometer. Not sure if it was thermometer or just me. Lol I'm sure things are more hectic with the kiddos home. Lol I usually have a dip too but not sure which day I'll have to go back and look. Have fun making pasta that sounds like fun!!
