Waiting to O

AF arrived today, which means that today is CD1 and my EDD would be August 30. I moved from the beginning of the month right to the end, so I thought I'd start this thread to see if anyone else is here with me.

Yup I'm here, IUI will likely be next week or if they push it the Monday after. I go for my first scan on Wednesday and just finished clomid yesterday.

yep, I'm here too. Nothing much going on, still quite early for me to O which is good because I'm way too tired to DTD this weekend! We painted a room in our house that we weren't using much and turned it into a playroom. I'm thrilled, it looks great and it's nice to have the majority of the toys in one room! Smile

You are braver than I Marie, I am freaking out because I am going to have to do my own trigger shot this month and I am terrified of needles.

I'm here too. This week is going to fly by, so much to do to get ready for Thanksgiving, stressing out about everything, because my parents are coming to our house along with DH's parents. This is the first time we're doing it here, hopefully all goes well.

haha, is it sad that I've already thought about that?! My parents (well my mom) is a perfectionist and she always has something rotten to say about my house. I can't wait to hear what she has to say about my Thanksgiving dinner..:rolleyes:

first IUI scan today, I had two follies, they didn't say sizes but the nurse said one is a really good size. Trigger shot tomorrow which I have to do myself then IUI Friday, all of which is crazy yearly for me, but I'm guessing the clomid was a big factor in that

Welcome Lizbet!

Fingers crossed Wendy!

Happy Thanksgiving to all the ladies in the U.S. My parents got into town this afternoon, and I'm sure they will be here bright and early in the morning. Trying to stay awake for DH so maybe we can get in some BD'ing before bed!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Welcome Liz! My AF was really bad when it came back after having my kiddos too. It did get more back to normal after a couple months, hopefully yours does too!

We've been so busy this week I'm so looking forward to a 4 day weekend!

I had the easiest AF this month - barely any cramps before or during, and not particularly heavy.

Today is CD 6 and I could swear I'm close to o'ing. Not sure if I'm going to waste my time with opk's this month though. I haven't had a positive read in ages, although the tests I had last month suggested that I am o'ing. Last month I just read my body and I could pretty easily peg when I was close to o'ing, and temp increase validated it. Having said that, I have a few in a drawer and am not totally sure I can break the habit!

Hope you are all enjoying your turkey ... I think we'll have pizza tonight Smile

No turkey here, we don't do thanksgiving. I'm off for iui today, then back up to that town tomorrow for my once a year movie date with my friends. I was going to take the day off work and stay up there at my Mum's but she has just had renovations done and no furniture until tomorrow and I had to have a meeting with an agency and this afternoon was the only time they were free

No we don't. It's not a thing here.

III today, I am choosing to take me getting a car park right in front of the clinic( never happened before) as a good omen for luck. It was more uncomfortable than last time and less bleeding so that is good. Now to wait.

Same here Wendy! Not much of a chance for me though, only one time DTD during the right window. DH and I have been exhausted lately.

Sorry Katie! Sad

We have been as well, but have the III as back up. I won't have any. Clue though because of the progesterone so I can't even rely on chart obsessing or symptoms

well, my temp went back down so I guess I haven't O'd. Maybe I can convince DH to DTD tonight.

I had the same problem this morning Mel. Stupid cycles. I am pretty sure I I'd though and this morning was streak temp temp. I hope this month is it for a lot of people

I honestly have no idea whether I O'd or not at this point. *sigh* and DH isn't even home from work yet (7pm my time) so I doubt any DTD will happen tonight.

Thanks Janel. I was pretty much thinking that, but there was also the possibility that I am going insane Smile

I'm pretty sure I'm getting sick, My son, who is in preschool, keeps bringing home every germ under the sun. Woke up at 4am this morning and had to temp (normal temp time is 5:30am). Line on opk was darker this morning than yesterday, but still not positive.

I just got a positive OPK!!!! This means my first ppaf is coming!! Now if only I didnt have an IUD and actually was having regular sex!! LOL!! I'm just excited that i am fertile again. Now to lose a bit more weight and convince DH. So I'm just going to follow along with the TTCers while I wait to TTC. Guess my next step is deciding when to get the IUD out. I'd like to think getting pg will be easy since it was with the first two, but you never know. So I dont want to wait until the last minute to get it out.
Sending O vibes to you ladies!!

What Mel said Mona.
Pretty sure I am four dpi now, I had a lower temp yesterday but way up today so I think yesterday just had other influences because three dpo ( though four dpiui ) is too early for an implantation dip

Anyone else still in the "waiting to O" category or am I the only one with a long cycle/late in the month? I think I'm still in August at this point, though not sure when September happens....

never mind, looked it up. EDD would be Aug 28 if I O'd today. So 3 more days before moving onto September due dates. *sigh* I HATE LONG CYCLES!!!!

I'm sorry you're having a crappy long cycle this month.

Svery you are having a long cycle month Mel, maybe your body knew t hold off to give you a chance.

Progesterone has kicked in, Post threw up cleaning my teeth this morning and nauseous tonight and the small glass of wine I had tasted awful and made me feel a but lightheaded . I am & dpiui. And pretty sure I I'd last Saturday. Cf doesn't want to give me o. Dates though, but with a trigger shot I pretty much know

Can you all look at my chart please? The more I look at it the more I think if I discard CD17's low temp that I might have O'd on CD15. Thoughts?

I can't. Look easily S I am mobile , but I hope thats the case. My one low temp threw o. Dates out by three days. I know when it was because of the trigger

Mel, looking at last months chart, I agree with you, the pattern looks similar if you were to take out that low temp on CD17, that would put Ovulation at CD15, and your temps since have been higher.

I'll test next Friday (20th). So far I feel normal, but am at most 5DPO.

eI test Friday. I have no idea seeing as I am on progesterone. A few days ago I had lots of symptoms but they seem to have let up since yesterday. I have been in bed by eight every night and am exhausted all day, though yesterday I was a bit more lively and last night I slept awfully so am tired today. Some of the exhaustion might just be me cutting caffine right diwn

I'll probably start testing Friday, I'll be 9DPO. It'll probably be too early, but I'm a sucker.

We haven't been too talkative lately, so what's everyone planning for dinner? Last night I made Cheeseburger soup and homemade cheddar biscuits. Tonight I'm going to make a Sausage/Pepper/Onion Stromboli.

I probably won't test until next Tuesday. Since I'm just not sure when I O'd I rather wait until later to test. That will put me I think 14-16dpo so I'll either have AF before then or it should be a blazing positive. Either way a definite answer! Wink

Jordan, your dinners sound yummy! Wednesday is always breakfast night for us. Made the kids Belgian waffles and DH and I had fried eggs and toast. We've been living off leftovers from DD's birthday from Sunday! LOL!
