Have you done any of the wives tales? Do they point to girl or boy?

It's pretty split:
Baby's hb has been pretty high which signals girl, but I've been craving more salty than sweet which means boy. My skin has been breaking out which means girl, but I seem to have mostly only gained weight in my tummy so far which means boy. Technically I could call my doctor because the sex of the baby is written in my chart, but I'll be good and wait for that special moment of finding out with my hubby.

Yeah, that moment will definitely be special! You never know with all those wives tales. My friend who is having a girl craves spicy and salty foods. She thought for sure she was having a boy, but turned out to be a girl! Countdown to your anniversary now! Its going to be an amazing one!

Kflores yay for positive opk!! Really hoping this is your month and you can join in with us.

Babydust i had my anatomy scan at my 18 wk appointment, so that picture you both saw was him! He looks great, all in normal range.
I have my 20 wk appointment next Thursday, just a routine appointment i guess. Try the baking soda test or the purple cabbage test, i wish i did!
its a...BOY!!!Due Oct 30th! :)

I would go based on your temp and not the OPK, because PCO can mess with OPKs. Based on your temp is seems you def ovulated yesterday.

True, I forgot about the pcos factor. Maybe I also just have a longer surge time and LH stays in my system for a while. I hope BDing on exact O day is enough to do it this time... I already feel out and the tww just started :(

How are you ladies feeling? Anything new and exciting? Almost to the half way mark!

I'm still feeling kinda down about this cycle and totally feel out. My nipples aren't as sore as they typically are after O. I didn't get creamy cm this time, I've actually had sort of watery cm mixed with sticky cm. I've also had dull cramping the last few days, goes back and forth from left side to right side. Since i'm on Clomid i'm trying not to look too much into anything because I know Clomid raises progesterone and can cause pregnancy-like symptoms. Blah. The next few weeks are going to be hard!

Sorry you are feeling out this cycle. I would actually think the fact that you are getting different symptoms as your BFN cycles is a good thing. My cm was pretty dry post ovulation on my BFP cycle and my boobs weren't sore at all. Fingers crossed for you!
Nothing really new to report. I have my 20-week anatomy scan this Friday, and then on Sunday we'll open the envelope to find out baby's sex. I'm really looking forward to that. Just hoping and praying everything goes smoothly at my scan on Friday.

Yeah, I guess your right. I know some people have had no symptoms what so ever and end up with a bfp. I guess i'm just really trying not to get my hopes up. I'm 5dpo today. Not sure when i'll start testing,I think i'll take it day by day and see how I feel.

That's so exciting!! So close to finding out the gender of your little sweet potato! Are you guys going away somewhere for your anniversary or staying at home? Have you felt the baby move yet? I know i've heard of things like the placenta being in front of the baby so it makes it harder to feel the baby kick, versus the baby in front and placenta in back...

Hi ladies, i know almost 1/2 there is crazy to even say! So far so good, i have my 20 wk this thursday but just a usual heartbeat check appointment nothing crazy.

Kflores i didnt have any symptoms during O or after, although now that i think of it, just that boogy like cm for O and horrible nipple pain when i was first prego but never knew it. What CD are you on?

Babydust thats so exciting, i just found out my sister in-law is having a boy too! Praying your u/s goes smooth friday!

Yes we're going away to a little beach town a couple of hours from our house for a couple of days. For the past 3 days I've been feeling some strange sensations at night after dinner, which I think are baby's movements. But, I haven't felt a definitive kick or punch yet- so I'm anxiously waiting for that day.

Isis, that's so exciting! 2 little boys! Thank you!
