Sorry for all the posts22, I got distracted and forgot to post my update haha. So for the past 2 days I've had to wake up at 4:45 to pee and I normally take my temp at 6:20 so I'm not sure how much that's affecting things, but as of now FF thinks I O'd on CD 11. I'm still kind of in shock and disbelief, it seems so early. I looked through my notes and I did have some mild pain/pinching on my left side on CD 10 so I'm thinking that was a good sign O happened within the day. That would make my LP 16-17 days (I've never had a cycle shorter than 27 days ever, so I'm just assuming). But I guess I'm in the TWW now. I think we're going to try to BD EOD until my usual O date just in case though. FX we caught the egg! We might miss our window next month due to travel/work schedules.

Yes! Hopefully we'll all be getting those pretty lines soon! I think the last board I was on ended up getting 3 bfp, so I can hope that will happy here too, right?? :wink:

Sooo my cycle continues to be really odd (for me). My temp was a lot lower than I expected this morning and I'm pretty certain my fertile cm is drying up. I'm still a little confused about how to chart my cm at this point, but I've decided that since today and yesterday were different enough from the ewcm that I'm not going to track it as fertile (even though it's still pretty stretchy). Of course I've slept horribly the past 3 days, so I guess that could be causing the lower than expected temps? FF actually took away my CHs today because my temp was so low, but if I take out the high temp on CD 5 (high from drinking the night before), it still predicts O on CD 10. I know the only way to really know at this point is to see how everything looks after my cycle is over, but that feels sooooo far away right now! I have to say, I am not feeling confidant about my odds this cycle.

I was worried about progression but hopefully I'm ok for now. 9dpo today. Top is last night and bottom is this am. Maybe not enough time has passed for much darker?

Still see it right away Hoop-No squinting needed! So exciting!

Carrot, that is one weird cycle. Maybe the temps did get messed up? I don't know enough about temping but the CM seems very odd. Hopefully with the EOD BD you've covered your bases anyway!

Still EOD for us, still a blinking smiley on OPK. O is supposed to be Sunday but all this cm has me confused. I hope we can catch the egg this month. I feel relaxed about the process of TTC this month, but I am getting a bit anxious about actually being pregnant if that makes sense. I just want to be able to plan ahead without this big question mark above our heads when it comes to a second child. Sigh. I'm probably not making much sense. First day back at work and I miss my holiday chill time with DD.

Sandralin - That totally makes sense! I've felt very relaxed (relatively) about ttc this time around, but I'm still just anxious about either just being pregnant or not. I think I mentioned we're transferring in January next year so I just want to know and be able to plan! Will we have a newborn when we move? Will I be pregnant? I just want to be able to see how things might go.

Hoop - I think your tests look great for 9dpo! You're totally right, I think they say you need 48-72 hours to see progression early on. When I got my bfp I was panicked that they weren't progressing daily but I got it early (like 10-11dpo I think). I don't think they started to get really dark until my missed AF date. Plus when your hcg levels are still lower early on it's much more likely to have variation in urine concentration. You could just be slightly more or less hydrated.

Thanks for the encouragement Carrot. At least someone understands! I'm sure you and DH would love to know about baby #2 with a big move on the horizon!

Some of my urgency to know and plan centers around work. Once we have baby #2, I will most likely quit working for a while, and since I work in a school, going by school years is how it goes. So I plan on finishing out this school year but what about next year? I need answers! Haha! Come on little swimmers, find your target!

Hoop, forgive me for asking again, but is this baby #1 for you? I have been using this site on my phone and it's not very user friendly and doesn't show any signatures or charts. I'm sure your line will get darker in a few days. Ahh! So exciting for you! Have you told DH?

It's ok! This is baby #2. Dd is 3 and I had a m/c in August and again in October. That's when I found out I have MTHFR. My bbs are throbbing! Lol

Oh yes yes I remember now. We all have a DD, a year apart. 3, 2 and 1!

Sore bbs are a good sign, but not very pleasant. Hang in there girl!

Ok so, weird turn of events. Got a positive OPK this morning! And it's digital so it's not user error. So odd. My app put O on Sunday, which would be CD18 like last month, but I'm now CD14. Gosh I tell you, once you think you know your cycle, bam!!

I just really hope we don't miss O. We are doing EOD, but last night wasn't one of those nights, so I hope we can still catch it today. I guess when you get a positive OPK, that means O can happen within a day or two, I just hope I don't have like a 12 hour surge and we miss it. Sigh. What do you ladies think? I'm gonna BD today for sure!

So weird! I still can't believe we both are ovulating early this cycle. I still think you have a great chance to catch the egg! I think you usually have a pretty good window after the positive OPK. Plus the egg itself will survive for up to 24 hours and with the fertile cm you've been having I'm sure you have some swimmers waiting already!

I was planning on sticking to EOD but it just didn't happen last night. I feel like we accidentally chose watching "making a murderer" over spending time making a baby. On the one hand, we were spending quality time together as a couple so I'm not upset (we had some really great conversation over the show!) but on the other hand I'm doubting if we're doing everything we can to get pregnant. FF is back to saying that I O'd on CD 10 which means we've missed our chance anyway, so who knows!

Aww don't worry about last night. Sometimes along this journey, you need some time to remember how all of this started... You two fell in love. And you are right, it sounds like your early ovulation may mean the window is over anyway. So I suppose we are in/nearly in the TWW. I suppose I will count tomorrow as 1Dpo, although I don't know if O is today or tomorrow.

Sigh. Now the looooong wait begins. At least before O, you have something to focus on. The TWW is soooo long and drawn out.

You're so right. I think the best part about trying for #2 so far is that I feel like i can just focus on our family as it is, and that's ok. At least for now. I'm sure if we find ourselves months or years down the road struggling to conceive that the same urgency we had with the first one will eventually show up. But right now I'm happy to focus on quality time instead of focusing so much on BDing that it becomes a chore (definitely happened last time!).

And I totally agree about the tww. I look forward to O because it's concrete and I'm lucky that I know it will most likely happen but the tww is so blehhhhh. You want to look forward to getting that BFP but it's a constant game of staying positive but not getting your hopes up too high. When is your expected AF day? I think I'm expecting around Jan 17-19ish.

Hey there!

Since I changed my O date due to a +OPK, my AF is due on the 21st so we will see. DH's bday is that weekend so it would be so exciting to find out that weekend if it's a BFP! Trying to stay positive but this is gonna be a long TWW.

TMI warning but I'm confused. So, as you know, +OPK this morning. I get a huge glob of cm around 1pm, totally EWCM. DH happened to be at home today, but we had to wait until DD took a nap, so we BD at around 2:30. Would the huge glob mean the egg has been released or am I still waiting on ovulation? Since then, I've been pretty dry, relatively speaking.

Also, we BD on Monday night and this afternoon, but if we wait till tomorrow, that's over 24 hours between BD. Is that too much?! Grr. I wish ovulation came with a specific timeline. I finally pinpointed the window, now I need more egg releasing details! Ha ha!

Sorry so detailed but I can't find info online. I don't think I'm searching the right phrases.
