Waiting to Ovulate Thread

Hi Ladies, I thought we needed a waiting to O thread. I'm officially done with AF and now waiting to O. I had planned on not temping this cycle, but I found myself doing it anyway. Hopefully this is our month! Smile

I'm waiting to O, I think we are around the same timing as far as our cycles go. I'm CD 8 (already??) and I haven't been paying much attention yet, no temping or charting or anything for me so far this cycle. That last cycle of TTC got me pretty obsessive and really took it out of me! I needed to recover a bit. Business time for this cycle starts in about a week! Hopefully this time I can maintain my composure. I'll be a lot busier this month, a big wedding to go to and starting a new work project, so hopefully that keeps me distracted.

Hi ladies! This is our first cycle working with an RE so would love for July to be our month. Plus I'm a summer baby and I have always loved celebrating a birthday in the summer so it would be really cool to share that with little boy/girl Smile

I'm on Femara and using trigger shot to get better control of O this month. I go to the RE on Thursday and if everything looks good with my follicles they will give me the shot so that means I will O on Friday. Looking forward to getting to know all of you Blum 3

I'm waiting to ovulate also. I'm on CD4 now and I start my next round of Clomid tomorrow. I decided not to chart because I know I would obsess over every little thing and I'm such an insomniac I doubt it would be that accurate. I'm also not going to do OPKs because I discovered last month on Clomid that there is no doubt whatsoever when I O because it's just so darn painful. Thankfully it's over pretty quickly and I know that I have a good chance because I know for a fact that I did O. Smile Keeping my fingers crossed for us all for this month!

I'm here waiting to O. AF came Tuesday and I'm just waiting for it to go away. I'm so miserable! I forgot how awful I feel when I'm not on BC with my period. I just want to lay in bed all day which isn't really possible with a 2 year old ... I started temping this cycle. I've never done it before so we will see how it goes.

I'm waiting to O, and I think it'll be soon. I can feel my ovary pinging and my OPK tonight was getting darker!! On the downside, DH is coming down with something hopefully he'll start feeling better soon!!!

I know what you mean Megan. I had the most horrible cramps. I was basically incapacitated for a few hours just trying to get through them. My husband had to take over baby duties for awhile. AF without BC is very painful!

Ditto to the above.

AF w/o BCP is almost unbareable for me.. When I was preparing for labor the last time I just kept telling myself it'll be just like a bad AF.. and it was...
Except:
A. I got a baby out of it and
B. I got an epi.

Nothing worse then BAD AF's when TTC.. because, theres no baby, no AF, and it means "failed" this month.. and then have to bleed and cramp and cry... haha :):)
I have a bottle of wine sitting in the fridge- hopefully it didnt go bad- that im waiting to use this weekend when AF (im sure) will arrive... maybe that'll cheer me up knowing I can haveit.

It's funny because I dont even drink when im not TTC. but just because i know i CANT have it while TTC and when preg, It seems to make me want it when AF comes, i guess because thats the only thing I can control haha

Oh so true !

DH just doesn't understand why AF is worse now ... He's like oh this was only our first try. We'll get it this month. Just have some chocolate and wine. :rolleyes:

Clueless.

The chocolate and wine do help a little though Smile

I know exactly what you mean. One big ball of fun at once Smile

So today we went back to the RE. Had a post-coital test that went great (sperm are not allergic to my CM and doing just fine once in there... haha sorry TMI) I also had an ultra sound and saw the follicles on my ovaries. There is one on the right side that will be mature on Sunday so DH will give me the trigger shot on Sat. morning and exactly 36 hours later I will O! It is so crazy to know exactly when I will O as the past 2 years have been so hit and miss. So just have to time BD right and hopefully this will be our month. So excited! Yahoo

I'm excited for my second cycle of Clomid. DH and I are going to be traveling a lot this month and next and everyone says that's really good because it's usually busy cycles that you get pregnant on. I hope this is the case for us this month. Around O time we'll be at my brother and sister-in-law's house which should be interesting but we'll do what has to be done. Haha. I'm on day 3 of Clomid now so hopefully it won't be too long. Yay! Good luck to all of you ladies here! Smile

Hiya girls
Waiting for AF over here.. shld be here any minute or day now.. Still a little confused from last cycle as to when AF is actually due, Im assuming right now.

However, I was taking vitex/b6 to lengthen my luteal, so as much as I want AF to just get here so I can get CD1 on the road, I'm kinda hoping its "late" as in Monday or later because that'd mean my luteal phase actually lengthened, then I'd feel like I might actually have a shot next month!! Except for the hating long cycles part! :):)

I have O symptoms now, but I have no idea if I already O'd or when exactly I will. Didn't temp or anything this month, hoping to be a bit less obsessive than last month. But should be happening around now. DH came home for lunch from work Friday for a quick BD Wink We have friends visiting now and will be at my MIL's starting Tuesday, so it was our only chance during the hot zone. It was very strange because we NEVER do things like that (meet up for a quickie on a workday), not since before we were married...it was almost awkward! We may squeeze one more in between when our friends leave tomorrow and when we leave for MIL's, but I don't know. If we don't get pg this cycle, I will be ramping it up next month. This month and last, we really have only sort of tried.

Gina, I hope it works for you this month. I have been researching that product and it has a lot of positive reviews. I was thinking about getting it but I don't think any of my local stores carry it. I may try it next month...

I would really like to get it, but if I order it online I don't think it will be here in time. I really want to get pregnant next month. If I don't get pregnant in the next 2 months, DS will never go to school with the next child.

Hi girls!
Well, all hopes that my spotting would still result in a + went out the window!
Worst AF everrrr such bad cramps and all that goes with it! Ugh!!

However, glad to just get it "over with" and move on to a fresh cycle... I've always wanted July as my #1 choice for a baby birthday, however I feel that makes my chances go down for this month (haha)

Also.. Kevin is wishy-washy on if he wants a baby sometimes, soon as he gave the go ahead a few months ago then he changed his mind, so I basically just stopped telling him when Im "fertile" and took matters into my own hands.
However, a few days ago just for fun, I told him I was fertile (i wasnt) and that night he got super frisky- no condom- no pull and pray.. and so I was kind of stumped, I feel like he WANTed one just wont admit it, since back in the day when he was AGAINST, I was on BCP and he'd still "withdrawl"

Last night he started talkign baby names, and then I said "too bad I'l never get my little girl" and he says "Want to go make a baby right now???" all seriously... and so that felt good, and then I told him too late- I'm on my period! and he was just "oh..."

So maybe this month will be "The month" since he seems more on board then ever... It's just one of those things, I know as soon as I tell him I'm pregnant he'll be 100% happy, I just never know if he'll 100% say "LETS TRY!" (at least during the right time of the month)

Soo.. I wanted to reach through the phone and stab my friend with a pen today, we were TTC together, only her second month though, and she got pregnant (of course) and she was complaning about morning sickness.. and I wanted to say I'd trade her for her morning sickness for my horrible bad AF cramps because at least shes preg w/o even hardly trying!!
Gr!

Trying to remind myself when I get pregnant, not to complain about M/S at all and just be happy I'm pregnant (I had realllly bad M/s With DS...)

ANyhoo, Late for work, see you girls soon!!

PS. does anyone pay for Fertility firend??

Well, the next couple of days are it! We've been DTD everyday and I hope we can keep up the pace. DH said yesterday that it was starting to feel like a job...hehe. I said he better punch in then because he was on the clock!

I've been using fertility friend, but not paying for it...just the freebie part. This is only my second month using it so I'm not sure if it's worth it to pay for the extras? Anyway, DD is cutting a tooth on top and she is hating me right now so I have to go coddle her some more! Poor baby! Smile

You know sometimes I think men just really don't know what they want. I think they worry about things we figure will work out and don't worry about so much.

Originally DH and I were going to wait until he was done with school which is next fall, but we're not getting any younger so that worried me. I've always worried it would take a while. Feels like forever already and I didn't want it to be years and be in a bad age bracket or something. I have a primary immune disease and am immune compromised and there are no guarantees about my health so we wanted to get started ASAP! Well I did.

My point is that while DH wanted kids really bad and felt ready he worried so much about our finances. We've carried out mortgage for two years now and have had no problems and my health is much improved over the last two years too so we've got less medical bills and he saves 20% of his paycheck and I save what I can from mine. I even started a baby savings account sometime last year to start to prepare. Regardless though DH had a hard time saying "Okay let's do it!" It took a pregnancy scare while on BCP to convince him that we should set the wheels in motion. And now he's completely on board.

He's so funny cause when I'm in the 2WW he talks to my stomach and asks if there's a baby in there yet or not. I think sometimes it just takes them a little longer to warm up to the idea. I've heard they feel totally responsible for being able to support a whole family on their own and tend to put too much pressure on themselves. So you're not alone Cait! I suspect many of our DHs are this way. Smile

I should be about to O. I can feel the left ovary a good bit and last month it was the right. I know there'll be no question when it happens thanks to Clomid and today is our first day of DTD during a fertile time this cycle. Woohoo! So, if I go according to the last few cycles I'll O in about 4 days. Yay! Keeping my fingers crossed for everyone! Sorry this was so long. Haha.

I agree... sometimes it just takes guys a while to realize what they want. When I brought up having another DH thought it was a horrible idea. He thought of a million reasons why we shouldnt' do it and I thought i just had to let the idea go. I was moving on with my life and then all of a sudden he texted me from work and said "go ahead and ask the doctor" and I'm like "about what?" i was so confused cuz i thought the issue was dropped. he texted back and said "baby" and I was so shocked! I called and set up the appt with my dr that day and saw her the next week. I think sometimes we just need to sit back and let them feel like it's their decision. Since I wasn't pushing him and bringing it up all the time he warmed up to the idea i think.

It's a good sign that your hubby is suggesting to try to make a baby! Sounds like he wants to but is afraid to admit it in case it doesn't happen right away. Like if it doesn't happen he's a failure. I know my husband says he has "super sperm" because when we tried before it happened right away but I'm thinking it won't this time since i'm older so if it doesn't he's gonna blame it on me LOL.. o well i will just take it as it comes Smile

DH has always been on board with it. I've been with him for 13 years so when we got married 4 years ago I asked him if he wanted to start trying right away and he said yes and we got pregnant on our 1st month. Then we just didnt feel ready for a while and I wanted DS potty trained before having another one and then again we both were on board, took us 6 mths to conceive which ending in a m/c and then we waited the 3 months and now we are on our 3rd cycle.

I did tell him if we have another m/c that I didnt want to wait the 3 months and wanted to start trying right away since the longer we wait the older DS gets.
im probably going to O on CD 12 since I started EWCM 2 days ago and i've been feeling crampy for 2 days I got some sharp pain on my right Ovary last night so this month Im doing every other day no matter what

DH and I are on an every other day schedule this cycle too! Haha. It's a lot easier on us and the doc says it doesn't really make a difference being every other day rather than every day. DH is a full time student and works full time so it's hard to keep him awake past about 9 or 10. It's easier if I don't have to try to keep him awake everyday. I've also chosen a new strategy. I hear so many people talking about how you shouldn't get up afterwards to you should prop up on pillows and let gravity be your friend so I make sure I'm 100% ready for bed now so that I don't have to get up at all after. I suppose that's kind of funny but I haven't tried that before so maybe it'll work. Here's hoping! I believe I'll O Thursday or Friday if it's anything like last cycle. Left ovary is definitely getting ready to do something and I'm CD12 now. I owed CD15 last month so any day now...I'm not waiting patiently at all!

i dont sleep with it in all night because i get yeast infections if i do, but i lay there for 20 mins. I have figured out that laying on your side in like spoon position seems to keep most of it in and you def have to use pre-seed. I did it one day without it and it def comes right out if i dont use pre-seed.
I dont think keeping it in for a long time makes a difference since it took me 6 cycles last time and i kept it in but i still do it anyways.

i use FF but i dont pay for it. I need to buy another tube of pre-seed im not sure if it will last this cycle

I've never used pre-seed. Partly because I typically have a TERRIBLE allergic reaction to any kind of lubricant and also because I thought most people only used it when they were on Clomid or something and have trouble with their cm. I'm on Clomid but it's done the exact opposite for me. Haha. It's like having ewcm for the entire cycle including while AF is here. So I figured it wasn't worth using. Maybe I should try it next cycle if this one doesn't work out. DH might have a slight motility problem but the doc said he thought they didn't do the test soon enough or something like that because his motility was like 47% or 42% or something like that and after looking at it again the doc said he wasn't worried about that hurting our chances. DH started taking vitamins anyway and trying not to take as long of showers and all that fun stuff. Is pre-seed helpful in a situation with there being low motility? I've been thinking about trying it but I'm scared to cause of the bad reactions I get to that stuff.

Hi girls!
love reading about everyone DH's and whatnot!
I totally know what you mean about them wanting to be the one whose "idea it is" or the super sperm thing- Kevin thinks he has super sperm as well considering Brody was conceived our first month of "not trying" (Aka the first time we BD.. ever.. and I was on BCP) haha.. So I think he always thought we would basically get PG super easy- w/o trying...

I also kind of think he DOESNT want it to be his idea... even though he obviously "acts" like he wants a baby, even kissed my stomach after we BD one night and I feel he secrelty "aims" his swimmers to the right spot, but wont say outloud that he wants another.. But he'll talk about "our kids" and such...

The reason I think he DOESNT want it to be his idea- I feel, in a childish way, he doesnt want to be the one to blame... like.. Im preg and sick blah blah and I feel he could be like "YOU wanted this!" or when the baby is being a PITA @ night (in a loving way i mean..) He'll want to sleep through it and I wouldnt be able to say "you wanted this!" ... Maybe thats totally wrong but I just kind of feel that he doesnt really want to ever 100% say "lets try" for those reasons... I think he just wants an "oops, were pregnant, but yay!" type thing. Which is totally fine with me because I know were both ready, better off financially now then we EVER were with DS and managed just fine with him...

Also, just found out today kevin got promoted somewhat- meaning he'll be on dayshift for the rest of time (as long as he stays at that job) so n o more swing.. no more graveyard (he was on graveyard when Brody was born... sooo every night I was alone! ugh!) and swing shift when brody was little, so every night was just me and brody for our routines, kinda sucked!!! Now its like we have a "real life" by us both gong to work in the morning (even though I often work nights, so hes alone for daddy duty!)

Pre-seed... Im a fan.. I never had CM problems until I started TTC this time around... But I feel it does keep those swimmers in!

I've also noticed though, CM/Preseed comes out when I DTD and i'm not fertile.. so when it stays in I feel confident that at least I BD during the fertile time... I've been trying to stay laying down for a while as well too.

I ordered another bottle of preeseed for last cycle.

Also- I really like the paid for FF because I like how it predicts when your fertile and such, I keep *cheating* and signing up with new accounts because I thought ti wouldnt take as long to get pregnant, so that I'd be wasting if I bought a 6 month account or whatever.. But now Im thinking about signing up- hey maybe it'll jinx me and I'll sign up this month and get pregnant right away and kick myself for buying it- but i'll be preg so I'l be happy right?!?!

Okay Im done rambling

I also started my diet back up today, TTC has been so stresseful and bad on my body, physically, Just kinda gave up eating healthy and exercising and focused only on TTC... so now I figure I'll be really really good this month, get some more energy and feel good about myself, then at least in a month if I start AF I'll be a few lbs lighter and have SOMETHING to celebrate!!!

I've been feeling a lot of pain in my left ovary the last two days so I think I might be gearing up to O even better than I did last month! I sure hope so! Last month I hyperovulated and my progesterone at day 21 was 37. I'm hoping the same thing happens this month though it hurt pretty bad last month. So far it's already been hurting more than last month and I'm pretty sure I haven't O'd yet so I'm really hoping that it happens soon! I'm very impatient to O which is insane because I hate the 2WW so much! At least I'll be busy after O and hopefully won't have time to worry about it. I'm going nuts today, I just want to O already!

I hate waiting out the 2ww but i love the fact that i think "i could be" rather then "i can't wait to o so i can try already" at least the thought of maybe a baby is in there is nice!

I usually like waiting to O a lot more but this time it's harder. I think it's because I haven't been quite as busy while waiting to O but that this time I'll be really busy during the 2WW so that'll be easier to deal with hopefully. I still can't tell if I've ovulated yet or not. I had a lot of pain yesterday and the day before and now it's not hurting so much again...still having some cramps though. I can't tell if I'm gearing up to O or if I already have. Last time after I already had though I think my ovaries weren't hurting anymore. Hmmmm...this is so annoying. Oh well at least I know I will in the next few days unless something really bizarre happens. I'm on CD14 now and last time it was CD15 so here's hoping it's today or tomorrow.

i think i like the 2ww better then waiting to O cuz i get worried we won't hit the peak time. which is stupid cuz i have my monitor i just have to trust it. and the BD part is fun LOL. I just am trying to enjoy the process this time instead of freaking out and being obsesessed with it like with my other 2 Smile

Go get it Karen!!

I prefer the 2ww... because I can relax... waiting to O takes so long for me, that I feel if it takes TOO long then I have no hope... and its nice to have a week off of no AF/no POAS..

Its sad when you wake up and go pee with your 3 year old and he goes and hands you your "pee cup".. COuldnt beleive that a few weeks ago.. he grabs my little pee cup from its hiding place and says "here mom!" and then he went pee... hahahaha... Id idnt even think he noticed me peeing in it!!

Yay for O'ing! Keeping my fingers crossed for you. Smile

AFM, waiting for AF to pack up and leave... a couple more days to go. As soon as AF is gone I'm cutting caffeine again. Trying the fertility diet again. Along with charting, opks, preseed and mucinex. I'm getting a pro at this. Unfortunately. :/

Mucinex is guaifenesin... it thins out mucus. You're right... it's also in robitussin. I don't have very much CM, so I take it starting at 5 days before O, and it helps produce more fertile CM. The last time I got pregnant I had a nasty cold, so I was taking it, and it worked then. :rolleyes: Maybe it'll work! Maybe I'm crazy!

Ok I think I'll be taking some cough syrup as well too!!

I wanted to last cycle but I wasnt sure what kind, but this cycle.. pulling out all the stops (if thats how the phrase even goes..))

And... this is probably dumb.. But I was just all teary eyed in the living room...

Was telling Kevin how our friends U/S is soon (8 week) and he was saying that ones not even exciting, and I said oh yes it is and told hima bout how I felt when I saw brodys (he didnt get to come to that) and then I said next time.... if we ever have another... he can come to that one and see for himself...

Then he said "lets just have our baby now.."

And I was :eek:

For those who know me, Kevins always been on the fense, or wont admit to wanting one, or changes his mind, so basically i've taken matters into my own hands. He knows Im not on the pill, I TELL HIM "IM FERTILE!!!!!" and yet he still DTD, aims, shoots, ... apparently misses each time but he tries!! Sooo I always *Think* he secretly wants one but wont say...

And now... hes...really.. SAID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Who knows how long it'll last, but I think hes starting to get more serious, he just doesnt want to make it "a big deal" and have me obsessing about it (which I already do, just not to him)
Even tho he doesnt know ive been tryin on my own w/o "saying" and he knows we DTD when Im fertile, I dont think he knows IIIIIII'm the one who wants to DTD when Im fertile (he always acts sneaky like he doesnt hear me say im fertile....and BD's anyway)
And so I think he will think its *easy* since all of our friends get preg ASAP, and we did w/ Brody... So I dont want to really say "oh my luteal phase is too short right now but lets keep on trying anyways" haha...

ANyhoo, Im happy despite the fact.. maybe this is what "needed to be said" so that the egg and sperm would love eachother... ALSO did I mention I ovulate on our anniversary?? the 27th is our anny, so perfect time to get preg right?!?!?!?!?!?

Sorry for rambling- you're my only "people" to talk to Smile
Sooo Im happy!!

AFM, waiting for AF to pack up and leave... a couple more days to go. As soon as AF is gone I'm cutting caffeine again. Trying the fertility diet again. Along with charting, opks, preseed and mucinex. I'm getting a pro at this. Unfortunately. :/

Elizabeth- You and me both!!! Ive been "coffee'ing" it up this last week due to AF, then starting soon I'll be back on my decaf. Also trying to eat fertility diet. No charting for me bcuz of not able to temp, buttttt ill be OPK'in, preeseedin, mucinex'in, vit b6'in, vitex'in, maca'in Bd'in, and the usual obsessin!!!

OH PS.. my "fertile week" or whatever- kevs on vacation from work, so maybe that means more time for us to vacation to our bed?! hahaha im so lame.. gosh.

haha.. yay for cough syrup!!

Cait- we're in this together! I figured if I have to deal with AF, I'm having the caffeine! I am so thrilled about Kevin being totally on board. It's so nice to have that. The other day DH looked over to me and said "I just feel like someone is missing in our family." Sigh. I am trying to do something about it!!

Anywho... hoping your week of vacation pays off!!

Cait that's so great that he's on board! Yay! I hope it all works out perfectly. I know what you mean about hoping you get pregnant this month since it's your anniversary. Mine and DH's anniversary is the 23rd and if I am we'll find out a day or two after that probably and I'm hoping more this month than I have any other month partly from that and for other reasons as well. I just think it would be so perfect to find out I'm pregnant right after our anniversary. This month is going to be a killer for me. Haha. I'm hoping more than I ever have before...already and I'm not even sure I'm technically in the two week wait yet or not. I'll be right here obsessing with you girl!
