**Featured Chart of the Month~Elizabeth (yellow.rose.of.canada)**

Elizabeth is in the spotlight! Let the stalking begin Biggrin We'll focus on her from now until she ovulates again next month (unless of course she gets a BFP, which we will all be hoping for!)

*She will post shortly with her chart* Smile

Hi ladies! My chart is in my siggy. I'm gearing up to O right now! I decided to take a month off from opks (too much poas obsession), so that'll add to the mystery. Smile

Awesome! Chart stalking helps me pass the time until I start testing, lol.

At first I thought you might have O'd on CD 12, but now I'm thinking you'll get a temp drop tomorrow and O in the next couple of days!

Get busy, girl! Wink

I agree with Mary! It looks like you're gearing up to O very soon! Fingers crossed!

Hmm. FF gave me CHs for CD 12. I'm not sure I agree with that. I think I o'd yesterday. I have limited cm, but I had a ton over the past couple days. That's what I get for not using opks this month! :rolleyes:

Well, I'm going to disagree with FF and say that you O'd on CD 15. I don't know about you but my CM always drys up after I O. Hopefully FF will move the CH over to CD 15 after 2 more days of elevated temp. Good luck and fingers crossed! Biggrin

I agree, I think you O'd on CD 15, too. I noticed they are dotted CHs, so FF is probably just putting them there "temporarily" until it sees what your temps do over the next couple of days.

Yeah, I have crappy CM. I'm just glad I had some this cycle! I definitely don't think it would last past O since I rarely get good cm ever. Haha. It seems so surreal to be talking about having good cervical mucus.

FF turned them to dashed lines once I put that I had EWCM yesterday. Smile Oh, I wish I would have given in and done OPKs! Seriously though, I have such a predictable chart. My coverline is always between 96.8-97.0 It's so easy. My pre-os are in the 96's, and post-os should be in the 97's.

Ah, well in that case, FF is definitely wrong! LOL. I know what you mean about the 'predictable' thing, at least as far as the coverline goes. My coverline is usually right around 97.6 or 97.7. Goes much above that for more than one day, and I've probably O'd! Oh, and I hear you about the opks. They do help. IF we were to start ttc again, I might consider doing them again.

Looks like FF moved your CHs to CD 15! Smile So you're 3 dpo now, how do you feel? Any unusual symptoms? Some women swear they know when they've conceived; I read somewhere that a woman's body chemistry does change from the moment of conception.

I had a feeling on Friday that this might be the month, but it's probably just wishful thinking. I'm pretty emotional, but yesterday would have been my due date so I've been choked up about that. It would be nice to have conceived around when our baby would have been here. I think it really bothers me that I've been TTC long enough that the baby would have been born by now.

I did have some vivid dreams last night. I have vivid dreams a lot when I am pregnant. Fingers crossed! lol

:bighug: Sadly, I can relate. And in our case, we have very little chance of ever conceiving again, so we aren't bothering to actively try anymore. We aren't preventing, but there's no need to anyway. However, that doesn't mean that a miracle can't happen, so that's what we continue to hold out hope for. Sure hope this is your month! The vivid dreams could definitely be a good sign Smile

Thanks, girls. I knew you'd understand. I just look at my two kids and am so grateful that I feel like a jerk for wanting more. I know this sounds corny, but I really think I would be just as thrilled to see either of you have a baby as I would myself. I so want this for you!

Okay, enough mushy stuff: I have a couple *maybe* symptoms... Usually I don't obsess over them, but this is a special month. Smile

I have a hypersensitivity to hormones, and usually get a rash on my lower abdomen when I'm first pregnant, and I have a little rash. But, it's-30 outside, so it could be dry skin, too. Smile

Also, I've had lots of heartburn today. Weird.

Okay, that is all. Goodnight!

Elizabeth, you should never apologize for your feelings. They're YOUR feelings. Just because you already have children doesn't mean your desire for another baby is not as valid :bigarmhug:

Those symptoms sound promising! I really hope this is it for you!

PS - minus 30 degrees?! Eeek!

I don't think it sounds corny at all for you to want it for us (and thank you, by the way), but don't feel bad about wanting another child, okay? You have every right to want a third child, just as much as we want a first and second one! (Though some days I feel like I'm too old for it anymore, lol) Smile Wow, -30?!? BRRRRRR, lol.

Temp lookin' good today, and the rash and heartburn definitely sound promising! Biggrin

Thanks ladies. Smile and I never thought I'd say a rash and heartburn sounds promising. lol

Oh, and it's now -36, -45 with windchill. My car didn't want to start
This morning! I need a tropical vacation. Stat.

Woohoo! 8 DPO! How are you feeling? Are you one of the lucky ones that get early BFPs? When are you planning on testing? Biggrin

I am definitely not one of those people who get early BFPs! Especially how my temps are looking, I don't think I'll test until AF doesn't arrive as scheduled. I'm not feeling very hopeful.

My mom had a major surgery (a bypass on her leg- they basically reconstructed her artery from her groin to her ankle) and I've been working full time, so I've been kind of stressed and distracted. I had a huge temp drop today which is super disappointing. I also barely slept and woke up at 3 a.m. (so I took my temp then) so I'm convincing myself that that had something to do with it. Smile

Sorry for the lower temp but it very well could have been because you took it earlier. Hope so! Sorry about your mom, hope she recovers well (and quickly).

Thanks! Smile It went up a little to 97.5. I had a dream (yes, I dream about my temperature, lol) that it was 96.8, so I was happy to see the 97.5!

When are you going to test?

Unfortunately, I will not be able to start testing until a few more cycles.

My TTC journey is a little different...we have to do a vasectomy reversal first Good news on the other hand...we have a Urologist appointment tomorrow - so taking it step by step.

Charting has been a real eye opener for me...just AMAZED at how my body works

Elizabeth, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. ((HUGS)) I hope she's 100% in no time!

You chart looks awesome! Fingers crossed! Biggrin Do you feel any different?

Isn't it amazing how our bodies work? It's been encouraging to me to chart and see that my body is working normally (at least in one area! lol)

Please keep us posted on how the appointment went today!

My mom's doing pretty well. She had another blood transfusion last night and is doing much better. Smile I think she's turned a corner and is definitely on the mend now.

I'm happy to see that my temp is staying up! I'm still trying not to get my hopes up. I got a BFN yesterday, but I never get a BFP until the day AF should arrive. And I didn't use FMU. Basically I wanted to pee on something. Tomorrow should be AF day, so fingers crossed. Smile I always think I feel different, but I think my mind is playing games with me. So I sit and wait. Smile

Glad to hear that your appointment went well! Not good news for me. Temp dropped like crazy today and I have some brown tinged cm. I had a BFN so white if it were any whiter it would have been clear. This has been a pretty crummy day. Yesterday the school I work for asked me to come in today, so I got a babysitter (who had to drive in from 30 minutes out of town) and then the principal texts me this morning telling me that she doesn't need me after all. WTH? Now I have to pay a day's wages for the babysitter when I don't get paid. Sorry. I'm grumpy today!

Hey Mary, I think we should just start stalking Jina. Smile Since she's at CD 2 now. What do you think? I don't mind.

Elizabeth, I'm glad to hear that your mom is doing better. Lots of T&Ps coming your way.

I'm sorry the witch showed....:( I'm also sorry about the work debacle. Ugh! I'd be a little ticked off too. I hope you're having a better day today. ((HUGS))

Sorry I'm late seeing this.

Elizabeth - Man, that must have really stunk about having to pay the babysitter when you didn't get paid that day. Sorry again that AF showed.

As long as you don't mind, we'll go ahead and start stalking Jina. I'll put the thread up as soon as I can.
