Olli: I have my fingers crossed for you big time!
Worththewait: It may still be too early. I had a crazy month of OPKs myself. It sounds like maybe on the first set of positives, your body was gearing up to O, but didn’t actually O yet. I’ve had some ppl say that you should go by the first OPK (for BDing I would say good idea), but for your actual O time- you can’t have an LH surge after you ovulate- or when the egg pops. If you can’t hold out, by all means test, but I would say it’s still early. I would think that you prob ovulated on the 23-25. I’m not an expert though! I do hate to see BFNS!
Slogrande: Don’t be discouraged b/c of your long cycles. I have a friend that only has 3-4 periods a year. It took her 7 months (not cycles) to get pregnant. She didn’t use anything other than OPKs to help her. Speaking of cravings: normally, if PMS cravings for me are salt and vinegar chips and beef and cheese (like cheeseburgers, etc). But since Oing I have been craving cheese sandwiches on toast with lettuce (I add Avocado). Craziness. And of course, my DH that wasn’t in the mood while I was Oing has been all over me. WTF?! This morning he asked if I wanted to get in a quickie before work. I said, why couldn’t you be like this last week? Normally, I would have taken him up on it, but for the past two days, I have been SO TIRED. I came home yesterday and collapsed on the couch.
Mary: I too feel “flu-like”. I just feel super-run down. I know some ppl see a change in CM during the early stages. Do you normally have watery CM during this time? If not, that could be a sign! And you’re right- these forums keep me sane. This TWW has been one of the worst for me. SO SLOW!!!!
Hemurf and Reapette: I live in PA too. I live in Philly. Speaking of Pittsburgh though- my neighbors moved to Mt Lebanon last year and we went to visit and I really liked it. I was kind of surprised. It’s my Philly pride…. I’m not “allowed” to love Pittsburgh! Lol. Where in PA are you Reapette?
Hemurf: Last night I fell asleep by 9. And that was a struggle to stay up until then! I slept horribly last night--- tossing and turning and waking up just about every hour.
AFM: DPO 8. UGH.
I have some symptoms… yesterday- horrible horrible fatigue. My body did not like ANY activity. Before dinner my DH told me I looked like a zombie.
Smells: Yesterday morning when my DH was feeding the dogs, the smell of the dog food seemed to take up the entire kitchen – it was HORRIBLE. Then at lunch, I was in the coffee room at work and someone opened a Tupperware with a cut up lemon and it was like I was standing in a delicious heavenly lemon field. It was like, the most amazing smell of my life. Normally, lemons to me are meh- yesterday I wanted to bathe in them and eat lemon water ice. Weird.
Today- I'm going to try and not be on here. I have kind of been slacking at work b/c I can't concentrate!
