Oh I almost forgot! Kat, with the BBT- Does it usually stay pretty consistent around the same temp until the dip prior to AF?? Or does it gradually get lower and then dip low??

Lynsey- the months I did not get a Bfp my temp would gradually start going down a few days before my expected AF. This month with the Bfp- it pretty much consistently stayed up around the same temp (with the exception of a temp spoke at 6dpo which is when I think I may have implanted. Hope that helps!

Lynsey I can't wait to see a temp spike. It's so interesting to see someone's chart and understand what is going on. I use to just look at them for a sec and keep scrolling.

Do you ladies have any baby names picked out? I only have 2 girls name picked out. Josh seems to like the both first names and it wasn't til recently that I thought of a middle name. I like the names Julia jayde griffin or mila Jayde griffin. Boys are too complicated lol. I wouldn't know what to name him.

That does help Kat, thanks!

I find it super interesting too Isabel! I wish I had started sooner lol Even though its not always accurate for me, its still helpful.

You better get down to business tonight girl!

We have a looooonnnnngggggg list of names actually! We had a really hard time picking out a boy name last time so we figured we'd start early this time haha Our girl name list is super long but we have a few boy names too...i dont want to jinx myself by picking too many boy names but if I hear or see one I like, I write it down. We immediately picked a girl name when I was pregnant with Nate and planned to use it for the next but then a close family friend named her daughter our name so we cant use it anymore :( We loved the name Mackenzie but its a no go now...damn her for stealing my baby name lol Is Griffin Josh's last name or is that a second middle name?? I absolutely LOVE Mila but Nate already has a cousin Mila so thats out for us. Julia is one of my names too!

Dang girl! That's a lot of names. Looks like Hannah might be the one. I also love the name Julianna but josh doesn't. Yes griffin is his last name. I know what you mean about family members...can't have the same name. I also hate when you find a name you love but then you meet someone with that name that you extremely dislike. That ruins the name for me.

I know those are the ones we agree on buttttt my absolute favorites are Delaney and Norah. I'm hoping I can convince him to see things my way lol I have an enormous family (Irish catholic) so it's hard to find names that haven't been used yet! Just counting my first cousins, I'm one of 40!

I'm with you on people that ruin names. Or when a character ruins a name lol I love the name Lorelei but I'm a huge Gilmore girls fan so Patrick thinks I want to name our kid after her so he shot it down immediately. For the record I just like the name, I'm not actually trying to name her after that character lol

:) definitely BD tonight Isabel!! I don't think it will hurt anything !!

As for names, we already have a River, Raegyn, and Aubrey and our lists for the new baby are remarkably short haha (mostly because we agree on not a lot of names). The ones on the list are ones we both like just because we know how stubborn we each are and there won't be any convincing lol.
Girls: Kelly, Lucy, Lydia (regardless middle name will either be Regina or Amelia after one of my grandma's)
Boys: Jay, Kane (regardless middle name will be Thomas)

How are you ladies feeling?

I'm confused on my o day. This is where temping would've helped. It seemed like I was having pretty bad o cramps Thursday night. Yesterday morning still had ewcm along with last night but was mixed with creamy cm. This morning more ewcm not very much and wasn't stretchy at all also mixed with creamy. O might have been thursday night or yesterday. I really want to say Thursday to give me more of a chance since last bd was Monday night. I didn't want to pressure him yesterday. The 'argument' we had Thursday he kinda said some things that made me think he didn't want it as much as me so next cycle I'm not going to use opks and I'm not going to try as much. Unfortunately I feel like I'm wasting my time doing it all if he's not ready to time things the way I want to. He really just wants to ntnp. And even then it upsets me because he said he's compromising with me since he knows I want a baby but he doesn't want to try so then I feel like he doesn't care whether or not I get pregnant. It's just one big mess that's stressing the both of us out. Sorry for the rant...I don't have anyone else to talk to about this :(
