I'm here, just waiting for AF myself, but would love to support anyone else that's here.

LOL Alison, the wait can be torture, no doubt. I'll try to help make it a little easier by being here to give support. (Even if I apparently will be back in WTO mode very soon.)

Hope you caught that egg. Nice temp rise so far!

I'm here now! Just a couple days behind you Alison!! Do you have a magic test date in mind? I want to wait at LEAST til next Sun (8dpo), but J is pushing for Sat. He wants to see the slightest faint line as early as possible.

Hello ladies!

I'm pretty sure I'm in the 2ww. I went in for an u/s today and it showed that I've already O'd. I'm either 3 dpo or 1 dpo but I'm thinking I'm really only 1 dpo because OPK didn't peak until CD 19.

Alison, I agree with Mary...your chart looks great!

Tina, good luck!!

Doo...de...doo 6dpo....
My temp keeps going us which is good. But I am not getting excited until I get to 1.5 over my coverline. I got excited at 1.2 over last time and it dropped the next day.
Meanwhile....:needcoffee: I'm off my caffiene and missing my coffee.

Alison ~ Can *I* get excited about your temp? Biggrin As for the caffeine, can you drink decaf instead? I HAVE to have my coffee, and am thinking of switching to decaf myself. Decaf does have a little bit of caffeine in it, so you'll still get a 'little' boost from it. They also have "1/2 the caffeine" coffee now, too.

Got my very first coverline today! I have to say I have really enjoyed charting. It is so neat to see my body doing what it's supposed to! Now, the dreaded wait! I don't want to test until 11dpo this time. That would be next Thursday.

Belinda, I got my crosshairs too! I guess we'll be testing buddies....do you have any symptoms yet? I know it's extremely early but I've had zero symptoms. I looked back at my last pregnancy chart and it looks like I had cramps and nausea at 3 dpo and this time nothing! Grrr....lol.

Nope, nothing yet. My first sing with all my other pregnancies was extreme fatigue and being super emotional. I am SO anxious!!

Mary, thanks! Do you think we can have a chart stalkers thread like the one of we over in TTCAL? I love stalking peoples' charts and it would be so much easier it they were all in one place....what do you think? Biggrin

Tina, you temps are looking great!

Kristy, Welcome and good luck!!

AFM, I feel like my post O temp rise is very low. I mean, I wake up very warm and sometimes hot so I would think the temps should be higher....lol....here I go over analyzing everything to death! Wink

Wow , there are several of us all withing a day or 2 of each other! Hopefully there will be a lot of good news in the next 8-10 days!

Jina- I'm new to temping but I would thinnk the fact your temps are rising even if just a tiny bit and are staying above the coverline is a good sign!

Jina ~ sure, we can do a Chart Stalker's thread. I thought about doing it before, but this board was too slow back then. Now that it's a little more active, maybe we'll have more interested in doing it. I'll put up a thread for it as soon as I get the chance. Smile

(PS: If you don't see a thread up by tomorrow sometime, PM me to remind me.)

Not feeling optimistic today. Temps not rising enough to think I"m preggo. Tomorrows temp should tell the tale. My preg chart shot up huge at 10dpo while my others have always dropped. I guess I'll see in the morning.

I don't blame you, Alison, but you never know, right? Hang in there, can't wait to see what your temp does the next couple of days!

AFM, my temp dropped some today. Is that a bad sign? It's still well above the coverline but I'm new to this and wasn't sure if this was a bad thing?

Well, I'm out. Huge temp drop today. Boo. On to October and back to WTO, well after I wait for AF. :thumbsdown:

Belinda - A temp drop at 6dpo doesn't mean a whole lot, though it "could" be an implantation dip. Let's hope! Smile

Alison - Sorry about the big drop. If it's not a late implantation dip, then here's to hoping next month is your month!

Well my temp shot back up today. I'm not feeling super optimistic though. Just have a feeling I'm not pregnant.

Belinda, so did mine. So that makes me curious-so I compare FF chart gallery charts with mine and get 66% similar pregnancy charts. I didn't need that! I wish it would just go one way or the other and not do the roller coaster thing.
I remain skeptical.

That's a good sign Alison! I am constantly looking at preg charts on ff and seeing how they compare to mine. Time just seems to be dragging! I ordered some wondfo tests from amazon and they are supposed to be here sometime Tues. I just want to know!

Alison, have you tested YET?! I too have been obsessing over charts, all of yours, ff, and my own, lol.
Belinda, I just got 25 wondfo tests on Fri, and it's HARD not to poas all day long! I did break down and test a cpl times, and I think my latest discovery warrants it's own thread...

No, I haven't tested yet. I am BFN-phobic. I really can't take anymore of them. AF should be here Tuesday. I'm mentally prepared for her arrival. Gave up on this cycle at 10dpo and ordered my OPK's for the next one. I'll test Wed, IF she hasn't shown.

Belinda, your temps looks great! I get what you mean about just not feeling it. I have a feeling I'm out as well because I have ZERO symptoms. But, then again, last time, I didn't have any symptoms either except for AF - like cramps and I got a bfp so you never know. You're not out til' the witch shows!

Mary and Elizabeth, thanks! Unfortunately, I've seen some really great looking charts end in bfns and really "ugly" charts end in bfps so there's really no telling! Ugh! lol Wink

Belinda, I think your charts looks great! I wouldn't worry about a tiny temp drop. Also, like I said above, there's really no way to know for sure just based on temps. I mean, just check out some charts on FF, there are so many "perfect" charts that end with bfps and some really crazy looking charts that result in bfps so you just never know. I know it's hard to stay positive though. For me, this 2ww has been especially hard on me since it's my first cycle back to ttc. It's really hard not to get your hopes up....you know?

AFM, So I don't know what to do about my temp for today. I woke up suddenly at 4:30 and jumped out of bed w/o thinking and ran to the restroom to pee. Afterwards I tried to go back to sleep but I tossed and turned for 15 minutes and finally gave up. I decided to take my temp at 4:45 even though I normally take it at 5:30 every morning. I knew the temp was going to be skewed due to waking up an hour early, getting out of bed and tossing and turning. Anyway, the temp was 97.47. Right afterwards, I guess I fell back asleep until my temp alarm started going off and 5:30. I took my temp again and it was 98.14. I went back to sleep again until 7:45 and took my temp again and it was 98.34. Now I don't know which temp to use! Ugh! lol. I guess I'll just have to leave today blank. I'm tempted to use the 5:30 one and then discard it tomorrow just so I'll have some kind of record....what do you ladies think?

Jina, as much as I don't LIKE the temp you took at 4:45, that's the one I'd use. Getting up to pee doesn't really affect your temp as much as you might think. The temp was still low enough to convince me that it wasn't affected that much. However, if it was me, I'd be tempted to leave it off just because I didn't like the temp, LOL. Could be an implantation dip, though! Will be interested to see what your temp does tomorrow Biggrin

Mary, haha! I don't LIKE the 4:45 temp either! Lol So, you don't think getting up to use the (COLD...lol) restroom and tossing and turning for 15 minutes really affected the temp? I guess I could always just try to pretend that it's an implantation dip...lol. :rolleyes:

Tested this am...BFN Sad Hoping it's just too early. My temp did go up some though. Actually, have a question about this am's temp, similar to Jina's situation. I woke up at 5:30 (usually wake at 7). I laid there for a few minutes and then worried that I wouldn't go back to sleep so took temp just in case. It was 98.72. Went back to sleep about 10-15 minutes later and then awoke to alarm at 7:00. Took it again and it was 98.64. I used the latter but now wondering if I should have used the first since it was the longest stretch?

Belinda, I tend to wake up in the middle of the night to use the restroom all the time. I mostly fall back asleep right away and it hasn't affected my overall temp pattern. Personally, I would go with the 7 o'clock temp since you were able to fall back asleep and stay asleep for over an hour. Plus, I don't think .08 degrees is going to really affect your chart much. Biggrin

Sorry for the BFN, Belinda. Don't give up yet, there's still hope until AF shows!

Jina - I see your temp went back up today! I also see that you tested and got a BFN, waaa. Like B, though, there's still hope! Smile

Any news?? waiting, waiting... crossing my fingers for some good news over here!

AF is due for me Saturday, so I'm technically still in the 2ww. Weird.

Ok, here's the latest update:

Ok, I'm feeling better now! Just took another test just now and the line is definitely darker! This is after about 6 minutes. the test on top is the one from last night and the one on the bottom is from just now:

tweaked:

I did call and schedule a blood test with my OB for in the morning. Feeling a lot more confident though. Now I"ll just worry until I see that tiny heartbeat!
