Thanks Mary and Elizabeth! It's good to be back, although most of the time I'm still just lurking. Doing ok...just waiting for NO lines (never thought I'd be looking forward to that!) and a normal AF, and then seeing where we go from there.
Danielle - I'm SO excited about your IUI... I've got everything crossed for you!
Hello everyone....I'm a little late to the meeting but I'm here!
Temping and checking CM are my best bet. OPKs aren't very accurate for me since I tend to get false positives ALL. THE. TIME! I like to check my CP too but CM is my number one indicator that ovulation is approaching and I like to temp to confirm.
Yaaay Jina, so glad you came! :) You're not late, it's one of those informal type meetings where you come when you can during that week! I agree, CM is an important factor, too. In fact, in the absence of doing OPKs (like now since we aren't really ttc), CM helps confirm O'ing for me, though this month my CM acted a little weird. I didn't have the EWCM that I normally do.
Thanks Jean - I've missed ya! I am excited about the IUI too. IHope you get 1 line quickly ;).
Temps, for sure! But for me, I've found oral temping has too many errors (all human) so vaginal temping.
My last cycle I temped vaginally and it made a HUGE difference.
My CM was always kinda 'questionable' for me to really determine and i never really got EW, only really watery. I will say OPKs worked for me, too, but there is a learning curve and you really need to find the brand that works best for you.
Did I mention I totally miss you guys!! I loved charting...and stalking charts!!
Hey Christina! Miss you, too! Hope you'll keep checking in to see if there's something you can comment on, we'd love to have you. Looks like you are getting close to your due date, can't believe it! How are you feeling? (Sorry, I know you're probably getting that question a LOT right now, lol, but I really want to know how you're doing! :))
