TWW

Looks like I'm ovulating tomorrow based on opks and body signs (taking a break from temping). Anyone else moving into the TWW?

Getting close. I think I may O on Sunday or Monday. My OPKs are still so light though. So who knows?

I'm in the TTW I think. I'm not temping and I'm not OPK'ing so who knows. LOL. My average O date is CD15 with the min being 12 and the max being 17. I'm thinking of putting an O line in manually just so I can see approximately where I am. What do you think?

10 dpo and a BFN. Feel like I have symptoms but I did last month and wasn't pg obviously. I O'd super late this month cd 21 I've never O'd later than cd 19. So I'm on track to have a 35 day cycle. Hopefully I get pg and AF won't come at all.

Heather I faked a temperature to see where I O'd. Fertility friend won't mind Wink

Tiffany-Sorry for the BFN. Hate those things. Hopefully it turns into a BFP real soon!

LOL, too funny! I just did the override and added a line on CD15. Whatever. LOL. It gives me something to count.

13 dpo = BFN. Not a big surprise, but hitting the one year mark makes me sad. I stopped temping this cycle, but still used opks. Not sure how much longer I will use those. I think it's time for me to move on to a new chapter in my life that doesn't involve actively TTC. We will never use birth control and would be thrilled to have another, but I think I need to focus on other aspects of my life. I have one perfect healthy son who is celebrating his second birthday today. His presence in my life brings me so much joy and I would rather focus my energy on him than worrying about a baby that will most likely never exist. This was not our game plan, but I can honestly say that even though my life has never followed the path I have planned I have led a very blessed life surrounded by some incredible people. I truly hope to see some bfps for some of you incredible women soon!

Beth, first of all your son is so cute! Happy 2nd birthday to him!!! Sorry for the bfn, that sucks. This TTC stuff is hard, it takes a toll and I've only been doing it for 5 cycles now. If I hit a one year mark, I might freak out. I think its great that you have other avenues to focus your energy. And I hate to say it, but it might just happen when you're not trying. That's an annoying thing to hear sometimes, but it does happen. Anyways, I hope that you enjoy today and being around all those lovely people you mentioned!

Happy Birthday to your DS! You have a terrific attitude to TTCing.

I am now in the TWW. I plan to ignore any signs or symptoms and wait for AF to show or not show. It helps I am out of town 9dpo to 12dpo!

How's everybody holding up? When do you plan on testing?

I am just waiting for AF, she's supposed to show tomorrow (which happens to be a very long work day for me...ughh lol)

I don't hit the TWW until this coming weekend. I expect to O either Friday or Saturday. Turns out that FH isn't away this weekend like I thought, whatever meeting it is that he has is actually here in town, so we'll be able to BD after all! hoorah!

Can I join in? I think I ovulated yesterday, had a big temp spike today. The thing is we weren't TTC....but had a little oopsie 2 nights ago. I am okay with being PG or not being PG, but I would love to hang out with some who are also waiting to find out. I am at the tail end of an extremely long cycle, not sure what happened. I didn't think I was ever going to O.....started temping 2 weeks ago on a fluke, just to kinda try and see where I was in the cycle. Since my cycle was soooo long, DH and I weren't being very careful.
I understand the heartache that sometimes comes with TTC, so let me know if you would rather I didn't hang around. Just looking for some camaraderie!
Good luck to you ladies!

Good morning, ladies! I've been on vacation and I'm here Smile I don't know if we caught the egg.. bc it was a hectic week trying to get ready for vacation. We will see.. I won't be disappointed if not. I'm training for a 5K in September (trying to relax and not focus so much on TTCing bc it's left me depressed!) so we will see what happens!

Welcome, Suz! Sounds like you're just seeing what happens like me!

Hello again!
Well, 2nd day of elevated temps for me, so surely I will get the crosshairs tomorrow as long as it stays up. I am officially in my first TWW since we were TTC my now 2 year old (3 in September). I am super nervous, not sure how to feel.

Just wanted to jump in and say "hello!" My sister is a mother to five and I can't imagine her life any other way. Smile

Beth,
Thank you for the hello!
It is official, I O'd on Sunday! SO I am in this TWW. My temps have just gone up and up...so we will see what the next few days bring. I looked at my last PG chart, and the temps did the same thing....uh oh!
Glad to join you wonderful ladies!

Alissa,
Yep, never a dull moment here! We were not actually TTC, because we were sure that 4 boys was way enough! But......sometimes even when someone is trying to be "careful", an oops happens. DH and I have decided that if we become PG this cycle, it was meant to be. SO, I am just waiting out these 2 weeks to see if God had different plans for us!

I am a little late responding, but, I am in the TWW. I am 7dpo. This is our first cycle TTC #2! I haven't decided whether I am going to test early or wait to see if AF shows up. If I do decide to test early the earliest I would be testing is August 2. I am not expecting a BFP this cycle since it is our first cycle. But it would be terrific if we got one!

Is anyone close to testing? I still have 10 days before AF is late....I love to see other people testing to take my mind off my own. I haven't even seen any testing posts yet....

I'm still WTO! I haven't been using OPKs much this cycle, but I'll take one when I get home later tonight. I expect it'll be today, or tomorrow, but could be as late as Monday. I'll be over here hating the wait soon enough! I was thinking about it earlier, and since we started TTC, I haven't noticed any EWCM... I remember having it often before TTC, go figure, now that I need it, it's gone!

So what's going on with everyone?
I am currently out of town at my in-laws' house, so I am not temping for a couple of days. I am anxious to see what it is doing on Monday morning when I am home. I will be 8 dpo by then and will be looking for implantation signs.

I have been feeling nauseous for 2 days,...it was really bad yesterday....but I know it is way too early to be having that kind of symptom, so I am trying to ignore it.

How is everyone else feeling?

Hi ladies,

Sorry I have been MIA. We are on holidays...heading home today.

AF was due to arrive on Friday and today is Sunday. Hum.... My cycle isn't normally this long. Today is CD31 and I've had cycles 30 long, so technically it could be coming. We'll see what today holds. My friend who knows is laughing at me as it's cycle 1 of TTC #2. It took us 15 cycles for DD so I wasn't expecting anything for a while. Oh man. Blum 3

Got a + OPK on the 26th (CD18 ) and a - the following morning, so I suppose I'm in the TWW now. I didn't temp yesterday morning, but wish I had because today's temp looks like a spike. I REALLY wish I had yesterday's temp! I've probably mentioned before, but my LP is 10 days, so AF is due not this coming Tuesday but the one after.

Just wanted to say I couldn't help but take a peek at your chart, and it looks promising!! Can't wait to see what happens!!

Go ahead and peek away! That is what it is there for! I would love to be able to stay on the April board! We will see what happens! Hopefully I will know either way by the end of this week!

OOoooo Heather! How long is your LP usually? 16 dpo is soooo promising! I can't wait until you test! Smile

Noelle, I agree with "Babymaybe2". Your chart looks great!!

Jessica, glad you O'd! Hopefully you caught the egg! :babydustblue:

Well, here I sit, 7 dpo. Which means I am a week away from AF being due. If she doesn't arrive by next Sunday, I will probably test on Monday the 6th. :bigwink: Not really expecting a BFP because we weren't trying, but I wouldn't be upset if it were!

Boooo! I'm sorry Heather! That is so disappointing to get your hopes up and then have the witch show. Good luck this cycle!

Jessica - Good luck, hope you caught the egg. I have a 10 day LP too. It's such a trip, your period can be late and you're still only 11 dpo. That's what happened to me this cycle, I waited to test until the day after my period was due, but that still means finding out super early. Anyway, good luck!

Suz - so if you aren't preg this cycle, are you going to start trying? Biggrin

In the 2WW now. I'm actually not sure I o'd when I thought. I think it was earlier. I'm *hoping* it was the day we dtd and not the day before! But after that my CM has been nonexistent so I think it's just waiting time.
Dh asked me the other day if I felt pregnant. LOL, even though I hope I am, I don't want to be feeling it this early!

Heather, did AF really come or just spotting?

I am not sure. Probably not for about 6 months or so. DH is in his last 2 semesters of college, so I would like to have him finish and get a job, which we will probably have to move for. If we are PG now, it would be horrible timing, but we won't complain! If not, then I will take this experience as a sign not to give up on more kiddos quite yet.

Tori, welcome to the TWW! I am right in the middle of mine, and already feeling "symptoms" that I know it is too early to feel!

Heather, what a bummer! Good luck on your next cycle, and hopefully you will stick on the May board!

Okay ladies....tell me I am crazy. It is WAY to early at only 8dpo to be feeling this way....but I feel like I am in the beginning stages of morning sickness. I feel nauseated off and on all day, and have been since Friday. It is sooooo way too early to feel like this. I have also been having that yucky taste in my mouth that I had with my previous pregnancies. My temp sky rocketed today. I don't know what it was on Saturday or Sunday because I was out of town and didn't take my BBT those days. The only other time it went this high was when I was PG.....uh oh.....

Anywho.....please remind me that it is too early and that this must be a little stomach bug or something.

Suz, I had nausea this cycle at 9 dpo, and it turns out I was pregnant (and have been having nausea off and on since then) so I do believe it's possible. Wink

It's official now, this morning's temp put me at 4DPO, I'll take it! My temp took a drastic dip this morning, but I've seen a lot of charts of FF with the same thing ending with a BFP, I hope I'm one of them! Fingers crossed that it rises again tomorrow Smile

I keep checking this board in hopes that somebody else has gotten a BFP, everyone else's TWW is as nerve wracking for me as my own is!

Sorry to see you go, Heather! Sad

I'll probably test in a week or so, maybe next Tuesday? AF is due Monday, I'm going to try to resist at least that long.

Ooooh, yes, it could be an implantation dip. That would be so cool!

Thanks for reminding me, I need to order some cheapies. I was going to buy some in the US but I never ended up at a Dollar Tree and the Walmart I checked didn't have any super cheapies.

I'm sorry. I hope you find something that works for you. I really don't want a may baby either cause we have four bdays (with both of our families) already in may. Good luck with whatever you decide to do!
