LuckyJules - you're about a week behind me then! Let's hope it's the last cycle for both of us!

Madasa - did you test or do you just know? Hope you manage to have a good weekend, despite it all. Get some rest (ha! What's that then?!) if you can and see if you can find yourself a little 'treat' or two!
My treat is going to be an enormous far-too-much-to-eat curry tonight and a DVD! Oh, and as it's 'that time' again, I've got to manage a BD - after an massive curry, that's no easy request!

Earthweave - no didnt test. No point i just seriously doubt it, temps dropping, things you see when visiting the ladies room (sorry TMI!!)...hope the curry-fuelled baby dancing does the trick! I will treat myself with something nice i promise. Xx

Just heard the fantastic news that Halifax had her baby boy on June 8th, he's called Xander (I think)

So pleased for her - so good to have precious news on here too!

According to my fertility monitor I'm on my 2nd day of peak fertility. Managed a quick BD last night, and one the night before last, but that's all. Note even going to attempt it tonight - way too tired after a couple of nights bad sleep owing to my daughter having a tummy bug. Typical! So I guess I'm not officially on the 2 week wait. Again. Hooray. Enthusiasm welling up as I type.
Anyway, going to get an early night with a good book tonight, so goodnight all!

So I o'd two nights before I was able to go and see DH .... :x ... and we didn't even get a "chance" to BD before he left for TWO months to Dubai. Poop. Anyhow I guess I have the next couple of months to get my body in a little better shape, maybe lose a couple lbs, and look forward to the rest of the summer and some fall babymaking ...

I see by my chart my temps are a little low post O - so I am thinking I may be low in the progesterone dept.(??) - Anyone take the progesterone cream or have any thoughts on how to get that up?

Hope everyone is well ...

I'm CD5 and it is really going to be hard the BD this month as we will be vacationing at a cottage with another couple, our son and their 3 year old twins ... there will be no time to "get away" even for a quickie! So my plan is to BD CD7, CD9, CD10, CD11 and maybe CD12 (the morning before we leave for the cottage but I doubt that) and I hope that will be enough.

Janovich sent me to this link and for this month I am hoping the above BD will be enough:

Since going to the acupuncturist he has decreased my O to CD13 (from CD15) and my AF from 35 days to 28 ... so I am hoping I O CD13 again.

You are very welcome Tiffanynp - I really hope that your path to baby number 2 is as smooth as possible! I'm on CD 19 and about 4 DPO and not very hopeful I'm afraid. I'm 43 and we are starting to wind down our TTC and trying to accept (without giving up hope completely!) that baby number 2 is probably not going to be a reality for us.

I look forward to getting to know you!

Julie, thanks :). Excited to be here. And, it would be so wonderful to actually not have to go thru any ttc journey or have a period forever if I could just get that bfp right off the bat :)!!

B, thanks for welcome :). I have known several "Miracles" at 43 for women. I do hope you are one of them. And, I am so glad you are not giving up hope. How old is your child?

I will be testing on Sunday (12dpo). It is sad, I couldn't even decide if I should put a happy face or a sad face after that statment. I have minor symptoms, but who knows. I don't even remember PMS for me, nor do I know what it is like to be pregnant with progesterone. So, only testing will tell me.
Good luck to everyone else testing. And ladies about O, hope you catch that egg!!!

morning all - it's been a little while since I posted. On CD 28 now - got a BFN with FMU yesterday. CD 28 is the longest cycle I have, so if no AF today then test again tomorrow am. Whilst I fully expect to post that AF arrived later today, I'm still holding out a little hope, based entirely on the fact that I ALWAYS get sore boobs right after ovulation, the only exception to this was the month I was pregnant. And this month. Nothing even remotely tender until a few days ago. And a few of those stretching cramps, which I get every month anyway (although, usually after O, but not until this last week on this cycle). It's a tenuous hope, but still there. We'll see. I expect AF will get me later today and I'll feel like a fool again, jumping at shadows!
