Me too, Kate. Here's hoping O is just around the corner for you too. Your temps really jumped up there. I would have thought I O'ed early. Smile

Marie- This is what I'm thinking. It was my first temp of day sleeping (from night shift) and I was so tired I fell asleep in my sweatshirt. Usually I sleep in a tshirt. So maybe that could of skewed my temps? I'm wondering if I should discard that one? What do you think?

Kimberly- we are a day off of each other on our cycle. But we are getting close. I am of coarse... POAS like its my job. When do you usually O?

Crystal: Sad I'm sorry. I hope you were wrong and it's just a little spotting.

Everyone else: Too many people over the weekend for me to get entirely caught up! Welcome new faces!

AFM: Ultrasound tomorrow to check my count and assuming everything looks good, IUI Wed morning.

Crystal, sorry af showed already! Is she still here? Maybe you're just experiencing a mid-cycle bleed? Ugh...sorry your body is confusing you again. I just got AF yesterday too so I had a 18 day cycle! I know it was forced but still....very weird to have such a short cycle when my norm is 45+ days! ((HUGS))

Kim, I still have a long wait so I'm still excited but I'm sure I'll start getting really nervous once it gets closer to show time. Are you getting ready to O soon?

Kris, hello and welcome to Dec! Congrats on the weight loss and I hope you get to stick around here for 9+ months! Biggrin

Marie, haha...yes, twinkies would be lovely! Wink It looks like you're in the 2ww now! Oooh! Good luck! Biggrin

Sarah, welcome! It looks like you're armed and ready! I hope your ttc journey is very short and sweet! Biggrin

Beth, I hope your wto passes by quickly! I hope your enjoying your spring break!

Erin, Squeeeee!!! It's almost time Erin! I'm so freaking excited for you! GL at your U/S! I hope you have some nice big follies! Biggrin

Crystal, how strange is that? I hope that what ever your mama brings you from AZ helps your body get on track. I can't remember if I've typed that already and if you answered, but, did you decide on anything to help your cycles out? Or are you waiting until you see the new doc?

Erin, yippeeeeee! Almost time! I'm so excited! I can't wait to hear the news of how your u/s goes. Smile

Jina, yippee I hope so! Thanks for stalking cause I was going to ask about that. Would you say I O'd on CD14 or 15? I'm thinking and HOPING 14 b/c we didn't BD enough for the 15th I don't think. We were all tired out, and HELLO body! I'm sick! O when I want you to! LOL I can't remember, how long do you have to stay on BCpills? A whole cycle? Just call me blondie....... Wink

Hello 2WW! Can I test yet?

Marie, I can't be 100% sure because of the open circles but it looks like you had a nice temp jump on CD 14. So, I'd say you O'd on CD 14. I think you're good to go on the BD front. Didn't you BD on CD 13? Even if you didn't O til CD 15 you're still covered. Especially since you had ewcm! I've gotten a bfp by BD'ing 5(!) days before O. Biggrin

Amanda, Good luck this month!

Oh she's definitely here, getting heavier and more painful as the day goes on.

Jina - We're cycle budies, well sort of anyway since you are on BCP for your IVF. lol

Erin - Good luck !!!! Can't wait to hear how your U/S went Smile

Marie - I'd say you O'd on day 14 but I'm no expert either. Remember Cait said her last 2 BFP's she barely BD'd at all so I think you'll be fine!

I am hoping and praying that I actually O this time, wouldn't that be the perfect way to celebrate moving into our new house? Biggrin

Crystal,

I am sorry your AF showed. I am happy you are temping again though.

AFM- I think I will O sometime this week. I am driving 4 hours a day to try to get in enough BDing. My chart was looking a lot like last month and then it went haywire.

Kim- I notice that isn't DECAF?! heheheh.. But looks pos to me!! I always get more pos/sooner pos on those OPKS then digi.. I think digis might be tricky because I get them like the 2nd or 3rd day of pos wondofos'... yet I kinda feel the digis tell me "too late" so I really love wondo!! I love your driving dedication!! Will this commute ever end for you???

Crystal- maybe your eggy is waiting for you to get nestled into your new house!! Thats what I'm hoping for

Erin- YAY!!! I'll be thinking of you tomorrow.

Good luck everyone else, I can't scroll up anymore to remember who said what, but I'm rooting for you!!

Is it sad that this board is "funner" then my own?? I feel more at home here with all my pals Smile

LOL, no decaf for me. But it was a skinny drink. Does that help? I try to only go once or twice a week. LOL.

Last time I had plus OPKs for the day before O, then day of O, and then the morning after O. I am just hoping we catch the eggie so I can stop stressing about it. LOL.

My commute definitely won't end until August and even then it depends. If DH deploys, we will have to move houses so I can still work, but this mean kids changing schools, etc. If DH doesn't deploy, my commute continues until at least next Sept OR sooner if we have a baby. Maybe that is why I want to be pg so badly.... lol.

Of course our board is funner Wink We love that you are here with us!

Yes Cait we love you! You can stick with us as long as you like! Maybe some baby dust will brush off onto us lol

Kim i've NEVER had an opk that positive, if it's that close to being dark the line is always way thinner, regardless of which brand I use (and I pay about $6 each for most of the ones I've used - they'd better be good!) - YAY!!

Kate - it's def full on... superplus tampon by the time I got home from work.... oh well, it's a fresh start and soon I'll have every opportunity to catch any egg cause we'll get to stop commuting 3 hours each way - in crappy NB winter weather... Biggrin

Kim, I had to come over here STAT when I was chart stalking you and saw +opk!!!!!! Yeahhhhhhh! Is it crazy I'm so excited for you? And your temps are whacked out just like mine. Maybe crazy temps = BFP!?!

Cait, happy to have you join in here. I *try* to go to the Nov board on occasion but this one has my homies. Wink Lmao! I am lame. I just calculated and if I get lucky my due date will be Dec 1st.

The results are in.....

1.) I had a nice big positive OPK this morning
2.) U/S showed a huge follie on the right and one on the left as well. The nurse said they looked great and the timing is perfect. Also, my endo problems are mostly on the left side, so nice to hear my really great looking one is on the right. Also good to know I have two, meaning I am not being overstimulated.
3.) IUI scheduled for 10:30 tomorrow morning.

Now to try and keep myself in check and not get my hopes up too much.....!

Kim, it looks like you have really good BD timing this month! I hope this is it! Biggrin

Cait, haha! Love that you're here too and that we get to chat in the BLC thread too. Biggrin Oh and I don't mind seeing your siggy at all....;)

Marie, I see that you got your CH!! Biggrin Yay! Fingers and toes crossed for a bfp!

Tasha, Hi! Hopefully you get a Christmas miracle and you can just forgo the iui! Biggrin

Erin, Yay! So glad the u/s went well and you have 2 nice follies! Good luck tomorrow! :D:D

AFM, Yuck...went and picked up my prescription for more BCPs this morning. 3 weeks or less of this and then on to injectable meds! I just know time is going to draaaag. It's worse than 2ww...lol....it's 3ww! Wink

I'm officially temping again! And I'm telling DH that it's a requirement for the new doc I'm going to see to figure out what's wrong with my body... which is true but also cause I want to know if I O at all this month - so far the OPK's I did last month we all VERY negative, most were snow white with a few having faint lines and one that got close to positive but not quite.

WOOHOO Crystal, glad you are temping again.

LOL, my DH thinks my Dr. requires it as well. I told him he wanted to see a few months worth of my temps before we do another HSG.

So here is today's OPK. If you look at this, and my chart, do you think we need to BD tonight or tonight and tomorrow.... DH may be starting to suspect something is up.

Kim- BLAAZZZING! I think you should BD TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've turned into a fan of sooner then later, apparently, according to my new EDD, sperm can live a long time in there *eye roll/head slam*

I love how you guys tell DH its required- because that's something I would do. Kevin gets too annoyed sometimes when i'm "obsessed" as he calls it.. hes more of a JLIH type, I think for his own pride so he wont feel like its him thats not makin the babies.

Is it ok if i just "ditto" Jina from now on??? hehe.. Jina, you're so good at replying to EVERYONE!! I can never remember who said what unless I can scroll up. hehehe.

ERIN!!! SOOO EXCITED FOR YOU!!! Fingers crossed!! Sounds so good! At least you know there ARE little eggys in there wanting to be fertilized!! :):)

I feel like the BLC is over here too, hehe, I dont really "know" anyone on my own board :-/. Is it bad to site hop??

Haha Crystal - it must be a man thing!!! I also think they dont want to think we try so hard incase it doesnt happen they cant be blamed- but when it DOES happen its "all on them" and they brag about their super swimmers, HAHAHAH.. whatever works though right??

I trick Kevin usually about when I O, and pretend I O the week AFTER I do, jsut to see if he "puts out" or not, haha, and he still usually does, but i pretend its on his own terms "...well kev, just so you know, im fertile right now" and then he kinda pretends not to here, but then deposits anyways, haha.. and then when I really am fertile I just pounce.

Oh my siggy is just umm napping, Theres no Dec BFPS so I dont want to be a super lurker/stalker so I just take it off to fit in better..

my new edd- well today she said lets shoot for Oct 28th, Um no, lets not. haha. They have Oct 17th in their system which I had alraedy told them is waaay too early and I'm more like Oct 20-24th... but we wil see, due dates are meaningless anyways right?!? i'll consider myself lucky if it's here by xmas. :):)

I better stop eating nilla wafers now and do my calories hehe :):)

I seem to have the same idea you all have. I said doc is going to ask for my charts next month. He think I obsess too much about stuff, and if he knew I was temping voluntarily he would said say JLIH. If only they knew its not always that easy!! And I also trick on timing too!! Smile

I'm so glad i'm not the only one who does it! When we started TTC, DH would say 'let's go make a baby' anytime he wanted to BD, not so much anymore but then it HAS been 15/16 months....
Am I the only one WTO? Kate and Kim you look like you should be almost there!

Hi all, just wanted to let you know I was lurking all the replies Smile Just patiently waiting over here to O *whistles.* FF seems to think I will O around CD24 b/c that's when I did when I conceived DD (and also that was the last time I temped) but this many years later and with crazy cycles lately, I BD'd before work just in case....lol

Luckily my DH doesn't mind when I obsess but we don't see each other very often TBH because we work opposite schedules for the most part...so he's pretty happy to be woken up for some loving.
