Sorry Mel. Sad My DH is going to be gone again when I would normally O and then gone agsin a week after he gets back so I'm in for another crazy cycle and probably on to May at the earliest.

Hi Katie! I posted more to you on the other thread but I'm mobile and lazy tonight. Smile

I just use the web from my phone or go on the computer.

ugh
Becky! last thing you need is another crazy cycle like that! Maybe you'll O right when he comes back in that middle week? Would that still give you a May due date?

Yes. Anytime in August will be a May EDD I believe. I think it was September 8th that pushes it to June. I'm still torn on how much effort to make this cycle because I'm supposed to be Maid Of Honor for a close friend back home in June next year. I would feel horrible missing her wedding but wouldn't go with that young of a baby. At the same time I don't feel like putting my life on hold for months since I just turned 30 and we want 3-4 kids. I guess I will just take it a day at a time and see how the cycle goes?

Becky... I think what's meant to be will be! Either your pregnant or have a baby out your in the wedding! ! All positive things! !! Ii was like that for a friend wedding and what do you know it ended up taking another year to conceive so now I don't work around anyone else's schedules! !! Not like a true friend could be mad at you!

Becky I'd just TTC like normal. You may not even get pregnant and if you do you just explain you'd been trying for awhile and it just happened, you could even stretch the truth a little and tell your friend you didn't think you were fertile during that time.

So we DTD this morning and DH has left on his trip. Let's hope I O in the next couple of days so I at least have a chance at April, albeit a small one!

I have no idea what's going on this month! I felt cramps and irritability on and off over the past week but I didn't know if it was O or AF coming. We haven't DTD in forever so who knows. I have worked out a lot this month and wouldn't be surprised if it was an annov. month. I really need to get the batteries on my thermometers replaced. DH and I have hardly DTD at all! Not for the past 10 days....

Like I mentioned, I am putting TTC on the backburner and starting school (time is going to pass anyway, right) but I decided that maybe I should try to prevent until the EDD would be June? I'm just thinking that if I could have an EDD anywhere between June to March it would be fine but the months of April and May (with TTCing in July and August) would not be good since it can't be foreseen as to whether I'd be pregnant at finals time. So that is the plan and my best effort at mixing the best of both worlds (getting to go back to school and still getting to TTC.)

Now granted, I will be happy if and when it happens no matter what but I think this will be a great distraction. My husband is super supportive and I don't have to work during this time. Kids are in the same school full time this year so I would be extremely lonely and sad if I didn't have something to do anyway.

Anyone else in school and TTC? Smile

On to May for me, hopefully we can get something working with the fertility clinic next week, lots of testing to come I guess then a plan. Hope I can get it sorted quickly

For the cost, I hope so, Sadly I pay tons in private health cover every month but they won't pay for any fertility unless I am an in patient. I do get some back from Medicare but it is still really expensive

So sorry Wendy. Sad

Sarah, I think the school and TTC plan you have is perfect.

As for me, of course I'd get EWCM while in the middle of moving. Maybe I can talk DH into one more time of DTD in this house even though he is exhausted and has to be up at 6 am? Wish me luck.

Wendy - that sucks about the cost. Sad I honestly have no idea what's covered with my medical plan.

So exhausted. I hate moving myself. I much prefer hiring movers. To add to the fun, we are helping friends move tomorrow. Praying we can find the energy to DTD tonight because I still have EWCM and my temp is staying super low like it usually does before I O.

Mel - Does it look like you have a chance this month or no? Your DH is gone awhile right?

good luck Becky!

we DTD at dawn on CD10. It's CD 14 and my temped dropped like it does before O which could put O at CD14 or CD15 maybe. So technically maybe a chance, but a crazy slim one. If I don't O until CD16 (Tuesday) then I'm out for sure.

Yay Jenny! Did you have a stressful event when you would normally O? Or your significan other out of town? I don't O when my DH and I aren't together. I know it sounds crazy but I have several crazy charts to prove it including last month. I can have all the signs that I'm going to O and then he leaves and I just don't, my temps go back to mid range and CM dries up. When he gets back it things gear up again after a few days and then I will usually O finally.
