I have to ask...
Do your charts always look this good at 10DPO?
sorry, I'm guilty of chart stalking
I have my fingers crossed for you!!
Oooohhhhh headed to stalk .....
It's looking pretty! Can't wait to hear how you are feeling.
I am LMAO...I'm usually the stalker! My temp usually starts to drop a day or two before AF although sometimes my temp takes a huge nosedive the day of AF. I prefer the slow decline because it gives me some time to mentally prepare. My LP was 11 days last cycle, but was 12 days the four cycles before that. I feel like AF is coming (crampy), but that's what implantation feels like, too. I wish there was an obvious difference between the two! IDK. My temp went up again this morning (11 dpo), but I can't tell you how many times I've gotten excited about great temps only to have a drop at the last minute. Actually, that would describe many of the 43 cycles I have been TTC (between #1 and this time). I'd test to satisfy your curiosity, but I ran out of ICs and didn't even bother buying any this cycle. If my temp stays up at 13 dpo I'll buy a test locally. Deal?
Ummmm I have to say, your chart looks *just* like Kim's!! I really hope it's your BFP but I know how much it sucks to get your hopes up and then have AF show. Hellooooo ~*~baby dust~*~!!!!
OK...now I'm going to have to go look at Kim's chart instead of preparing for my 8 a.m. lecture. You guys are a BAD influence!!! It's hard not to get excited over my temp shift this morning because my one and only BFP cycle had a temp shift up to 98.6 at 11 dpo (from 98.3). Trying to keep myself from reading into it too much and focus on the hectic weekend I have coming up. Glad I don't have hpts at home because it's nice to at least feel like I have a chance still and not have to stare at stark white BFNs.
Dang it, Kim! Your chart's gone!
Oh Beth, it's ingrained in my memory so I *know* what a BFP chart looks like. Hahaha! And guess what, yours is identical! Very very quietly in the corner i'm doing the :happydance: cause I don't wanna get your hopes up *too* high. I will be stalking you like it's going out of style!!!
OK, Marie, I had to go back a couple of months to find one of my beautiful cycles that really looked promising until the temp drop the day AF arrived: My Ovulation Chart
Trying not to get too excited, but it's hard to not think "what if..." with nice temps. I've done a good job stepping away from the pee sticks this cycle. Maybe I'd be better off not temping, too. Temping is such a habit with me though that I doubt I could stop cold turkey (and definitely won't at the end of a cycle!).
**Dang...seems like my link just goes to my current chart. I'll try to fix it!**
Beth, you're chart IS very impressive! And it does look like Kim's..lol. Sending lots of baby dust your way!!!
Can't wait to start stalking YOU! Once the injections start, time flies! And then completely stops after the retrieval. Waiting for the fert report and then the 3 day update is HARD. No injections, no bloodwork, no scans...just waiting. Those three days always seem longer than a two week wait.
I was heading over here to comment on your chart but I see that someone beat me to it That is one nice looking chart! I hear you on the balance between getting exciting and protecting yourself. I have everything crossed for you!! KUP!
Thanks, Jenni! I've got everything crossed for your upcoming cycle, too! I've got some serious IVF board stalking to keep up with in the next few weeks. There's such a tight group on that board. Even though I think I'm done with that route, I don't think I'll ever leave that board completely.
Oh I really hope so Beth because time is totally dragging for me right now...lol.
I remember time dragging before my second cycle because I was sidelined with a cyst. I can't remember how long I was on bcps that time, but it seemed like forever. The IVF process has a lot of hurry up and wait involved.
Beth your chart is pretty! I can't wait for you to test (I hope your temps keep going up and up and up!)
I wish I knew how to give it back to you .... Your's is looking like mine!!
Kim! I was stalking you non-stop yesterday! Need to check your update. I just entered my temp for today from my phone ( still in bed). I looked at my old charts and have recent ones from Nov and Dec that were up like this at 12 dpo and then dropped when after showed at 13 dpo. If my temp is still up tomorrow I will test. If I had any tests in the house I would test today. My DH couldn't believe I didn't have any.
Beth... we will be watching! hahah That sounded creepy! But you are looking great. It reminds me of Kim's beautiful chart!
I'm mega stalking you...lol. Your chart still looks amazing! FX!!! :D:D:D
Yeah, I have a cyst right now so I have to continue wth the bcps...not fun! lol
I stalk you, too, Kate.
When do you have another u/s, Jina?
I might test today. Tried to get a $ tree test a little while ago because we were out. All they had were ovulation tests. Didn't want to spend the money on a more expensive test, but might cave later. Going to work on the built-in cabinets and bench for a room my DH just refinished.
Something totally cool and unexpected (and OT)... I won an ipad yesterday. I told my DH it's either a sign my luck is changing or it's my consolation prize for a failed cycle.
OMG Beth, your killing me!! TAKE A TEST!!! lol
I'm only 8 dpo and not due for AF until April 6th and I've been POAS for the past 3 days...all BFN's but still very very early!
Mandy, you've got me lmao. I would test if I had some ICs or a $ store test. I have wasted too much money on expensive tests in the past. I even saved some SMU this morning in case I got a test when we ran to the hardware store. It's still sitting in the bathroom.
I just told my DH that you want me to take a test. He's laughing at us now, too. Trying to talk him into picking up something for me to pee on because he needs to go get longer screws.
You seriously need to breakdown and buy a FRER!
I'll get a test this afternoon. Nervous about getting a BFN and giving up the pleasant feeling that I have a chance this cycle. I prefer the gentle let down over a plunging temp and af arriving unexpectedly tomorrow though.
Yay! I am so excited for you testing! I am holding all of my fingers and toes crossed for you !!!
Beh did u do it huh huh huh did ya did ya did ya?
Yeh...BFN. At least I feel prepared for the temp to drop.
Aw, (((BIG HUGS))) I really thought this was it. Maybe you are still in for a surprise?
Beth, don't lose hope yet..... Afternoon urine at 12dpo, that's still a hard BFP to get. Pease do a FMU tomorrow. I logged back in justtzo see if you had tested!
Hugs anyway tho, bfn's are hard to see no matter what. I'm still getting dang negative OPks, and it still stinks.
If my temp is still up in the am I will use the second test. I think I'm just used to seeing bfn because I wasn't as upset as I thought I should be. I just keep telling myself that as long as I am ovulating I have a chance!
Beth, boooo to that stupid test! Your chart looks so great that I'm hoping a BFP is still on the way. Please o please o please!!!!!
On a side note. Omg! How the heck did you win an iPod? That is so awesome!
Marie, I filled out a really short text book survey. They frequently say they will put your name into a drawing for something, but I never thought they really did. My sister got an ipad for Christmas and I have been drooling over it.
Aw silly tests! I hope your temps stay up tomorrow and you get your bfp!
That's so cool that you won an iPad! I got one when I poured water on my lap top(not on purpose) and I love it!
Temp dropped. Just waiting for af to arrive. At least I got a consolation prize.
I am sorry about the temp but I love your consolation prize.
I'm pretty excited about the consolation prize, too. Not quite as good as a sympathy prize that I got for Christmas one year when I went through a really bad break-up with a creepy guy that had another long-term relationship going on simultaneously with someone out of state. Long story, but my mom and stepfather were going to Spain for my stepfather's job and they took me with them mainly, I think, because they felt sorry for me. Nothing helps you recover from a bad break-up like a trip to Spain!
Beth, ugh! I'm sorry about the bfn and the temp drop :(. Your chart was looking so amazing....I was really hoping to see a bfp announcement. I agree, an iPad is an awesome consolation prize! Hubby bought one for me on Thursday after our disappointing appointment. I'm having fun with it...how are you liking yours? I keep trying to make phone calls with it because essentially it's just a giant iPhone w/o the phone! lol A trip to Spain does sound like the ultimate sympathy prize! Um...I have another u/s on the 9th. Hopefully my cyst will be gone by then but I kind of doubt it. Anyway, I'll see you over in January...or do you get another shot at December?
Beth sorry for dive in temp !!
Sorry for the temp drop but it ain't over til the fat lady sings, right? Great consolation prize, though
Sorry about the BFN Beth, I was really hoping this was it for you
I'll probably be seeing you over in January, I'm not feeling very optimistic this month...
So sorry about the bfn and temp drop. Your chart looked awesome, like a "no possible bfn".
On another note, I got an iPad for my b-day..... DH is notorious for crappy or nonexistent gifts, so he has been trying to amp it up.... I LOVE my iPad for this kind of stuff, but i hate it for Netflix. The app won't allow you to add things to the queue very easily. DH can do it from his iPhone, so I don't really understand, but I've read that a lot of people can't get it to work very well with Netflix. But, love it anyway.
I'm sorry Beth! I really hoped it was your month! The iPad is great though you will love it
I'd hoped it was my month, too, but I'm OK. Still waiting for AF. Wondering if I might at least be getting a longer LP. That'd be good!
I'm so sorry. Big hugs. That is pretty neat about the Ipad. Big hugs.
Thanks, Jenni. I tell myself that as long as I have these beautiful charts I must have a chance. We know I have poor quality eggs, but at least I'm ovulating!
Beth, I am sorry the witch showed
Thanks, Michelle. I've grown attached to our group. I love celebrating the graduations, but wish we were all moving on at the same time. I do a lot of lurking on previous months to keep up with everyone. Hopefully, you will give me a reason to lurk soon!
I'm sorry about AF. It is harder when your chart looks so good and you get hopeful! I too am enjoying this group. Sad we aren't all moving on together. Ready for our January board to get rolling!!!!
Yeh...when will next year's boards be up?!?!?
I'm ready for it!! Feel like we are all in between.
