Pretty sure I'm here, expecting af any day now, I had some pinkish cm earlier today. I may not be aroun d much, I think I need to take a complete break from TTC, I'm still deciding. I might hang out but I am going to try no charting and no opks, not sure how I will go, I have barely/not used opks the last few months, but I actually enjoy charting

I enjoy it too...I feel it is almost less stressful to be able to pinpoint O day. The "Let it happen" and loosely TTC doesn't seem to work for me because I don't O the same day every month. GL Wendy

Sorry Jenny, but glad we get to have you still!!

So AF started for me a few days ago, and it was like a steady flow one day then 2 days of nothing nada zip dry and today starting back up. I wonder if I should change today to CD1? I am just going to leave it but assume I won't O until CD24 so right at the end of the month for me, most likely... going to be busy month thankfully, hopefully it will go quickly!

Af started last night. We have a busy month here as well, work is really busy, then I have a week off work and my birthday and then straight back into a crazy month at work with court stuff

I'm here for now. This is only our second month TTC and we are kind of in a relaxed mode about it for now because we have a lot of other unknowns going on in our lives in the near future but I have abnormal cycles so have to chart anyway to prevent surprise visits from AF. I told DH I wouldn't force him to DTD to conceive but I get crazy for it naturally when I'm about O so thats really an empty promise. Wink

I may be out for this month because of a trip planed that will put me away from DH when I am predicted to O but as I said, I have abnormal cycles and in the past wouldn't O away from DH. In fact, my daughter was conceived on CD 60 because my DH kept going on work trips and my body went a little crazy. The chart was all over the place with fertile signs coming and going so who knows what will happen this month.

Wendy, I think maybe taking a break and not stressing over your chart for awhile may be just the thing you need but I have to say I was looking forward to having the "friend" here. Please don't torture yourself though. Sad

Idk about that one Sarah, maybe just keep track with notes while charting so you can pin point o better. I am wondering if I am charting af wrong I was charting spotting as the first day I would start to see anything bc it was so light and I didn't even need a lied. But maybe it should just be cd1 ?

You'll still have me around, so far I haven't been able to not temp. I am out of town tonight so may leave the thermometer at home, but like I said, I really enjoy charting. We'll see how crazy I go once O gets closer.

I got a positive OPK yesterday and a super dark positive OPK today. Looks like I will be O'ing any day now. Luckily DH is home tonight. Unfortunately he won't be home tomorrow so we better make tonight count.

We had a CP last month so hopefully this month will work out better for us. Hope to see you all soon on the 2ww thread (I guess I better start one).

I haven't temped since Friday, I didn't pack my thermometer when we went to my Mum's and didn't have my phone this morning to go off and remind me, which means I slept in an extra hour. I've had a sick boy all weekend as well. O should be next week, then it's a busy week with birthdays galore (mine, my friends and an early dinner for another friends in July as she will be in Canada for her actual birthday) all within 5 days.

I hate waiting to O, it is so slow. At least I have some business in the TWW. I am hoping I am pregnant this month, I can start my mat leave right around when one of my clients transitions out. I have had big pieces of work over my years and each time before they are finalised I have left, once moving and once going on mat leave, this time if my client transitions my mat leave would start right around that time.

Oh there have been much better timings before and none were my month. I've about given up, I hate how scheduling a doctors appointment with hubby is so hard so we can't get his SA results and move on to the fertility clinic

Figured on pop in here since I'm waiting to O too! I hate the wait to O. It definitely feels like it takes longer than the 2WW though the 2WW is probably more stressful. I'm hoping since we have a 7 month old (as of Monday) that I'll be too busy to remember I'm in the 2WW a lot of the time once it happens.

I got my OPKs in the mail yesterday and will start them in about a week. Smile

Nope not seen them. Hubby should be on 9-5's next week so we can get in then I hope, really we just need to get the referral because they will possibly test him again.

Hey everyone, hoping to be here too! I used to be an avid Preg.org poster to these forums but after the first was born two years ago, the birth group moved to FB and I've been on there.

Anyway, this is our first month trying for baby #2. I'm not charting temps or anything but guessing based off a cycle app I have been using for a year. My cycles are irregular and long--35-40 days on average--and based off calculations, the O time should be anytime starting this Sunday through the following week. Not exact I know, but it just means we have more fun that way Wink

It would be nice to have a little one in March--it's DH's birth month and I think it would be a nice gift! But we'll see.

This month's chart is the best looking one I've ever had and I'm leaving tomorrow for 10 days without DH and I haven't O'd yet. Sad Keeping my fingers crossed it happens in the next couple days giving us at least a small shot at this month. Fertile signs are all there just need to O!

Thanks Wendy. I left at 6am and barely got DH to stay awake long enough to say goodbye to us. Still no O yet. Sad

That sucks, I had that last month. I had a work trip and o'd a couple of days late, I never O late and missed the chance. You mentioned that you used to not O until your hubby was home, how long is your trip? Maybe it's just waiting

I am going home on the 25th. I am trying to look at this as a good thing because it will at least tell me if my cycles are now regular or if they are still sensitive to DH being around.

I hate waiting to O. It's so boring. There's just nothing going on. Lol. I'm not quite ready to start OPKs yet and I'm nervous to see if I O on my own this month since I was on fertility drugs for that in the past. Since my surgery they think I may O on my own and avoid needing meds which would be nice. So I'm charting to see if I can track it myself. But the time is just dragging by.

My temp went up today. It;s at my usual temp, but my temps so far have been lower. I'm not feeling well though so that may account for the 0.2 degree rise. Circumstances have led to no bding yet though

So we got an appointment with the GP for Thursday so hubby will get his SA results and then we can be referred to the fertility clinic. I guess I had best call my health insurance provider so I can find out which one they will cover us at when we get to that point, if they will cover us at all. They won't cover anything unless you are an in patient so not sure what we will be able to afford. I know from a Mum at day care that an IUI is about $300, but not sure if thats just the procedure or all up with everything included minues medicare rebates.

Well if FF is right I am out again this month. It believes I O'd 3 days ago and circumstances of life with a toddler didn't allow any nookie until last night which if the charting is saying what it is was 2dpo so yeah guess I am out. I'll have to do some opks to confirm O this month. I id one last night and iot wasn't positive. I never start OPKs until about CD 12 as I don't generally O until CD14 or 15

So it thinks you O'd on CD 10? I think I'd do OPKs for a few days just to make sure since its so early for your normal cycle.

Still no O here and fertile CM is gone too so maybe I still have a chance this month. I'm happy that we still have the chance this month and I know we can conceive with my crazy cycles but at the same time it is frustrating because it makes knowing when to DTD so hard. I guess DH will be happy because it will mean lots more of DTD in hopes of catching an egg. Lol.

I did an opk this mornign, it was a blazing positive. I will do another tonight, but we had soccer for R this afternoon so I couldn't do my usual 'straight after work' pee i usually have for an OPK

I am in the same boat as you. I have O'd as late as around CD30 but also as early as CD11 one time. DH doesn't mind that we have to DTD every day or every other day for 2-3 weeks Wink

Same here Sarah, I was o'ing around cd 15 for a few straight months then had a cp in oct and since then I am all over the place but then o'd at cd 15 again last month so I was hoping to be back on track but so far no fertile cm so who knows what is going on this month

Hey Jenny, I'm secretly glad to see you here. Blum 3 Hope we get to stay!!! My CM still isn't totally fertile but I am not giving up on BD every other day this month! I'm not sure my exact CD due to period for 1 day, but temps stayed up, then AF stopped, then came back when temp dropped, hence the 2 different tickers I have lol

So we had our doctors appointment last night. My doctor is crap. Still no referral to the fertility clinic. Hubby's SA was pretty damn perfect but his leucocyte levels were a little high which may or may not indicate an infection which may or may not be causing issues. He is on a three week course of antibiotics then test again two weeks after that and then back to the gp. I may be naughty and doctor shop for a referral because this waiting is useless, I have an appointment with my great gp next week anyway for a check up for my moles and might ask her for a referral

I have another GP who is a bit over an hour away and only works two days a week and in super high demand. I see her about once a year and luckily that appointment is next Friday so yeah doctor shopping to get one from her thankfully.

I think you should definitely ask your GP that you like for the referral! Especially since the stuff that the other one is doing is just for your DH. Take the SA results with just in case she asks about them. I don't know much about male infertility but it seems like the other doctor is dragging his feet on your referral without a good reason.

Can someone please take a little peak at my chart and tell me if you agree that I haven't O'd yet? I usually get a good temp spike. I don't have any good old charts to compare tho bc I didn't use FF religiously before so temps are missing and stuff from them. I have been trusting their analysis because I don't remeber the details of how to calculate where to draw the line but this chart has me
wondering.

Becky I'm thinking you haven't O'd from your chart. Your cover line looks like around 97.1 or so and you didn't jump like you should after O'ing.

Okay, CD 1 here, so coming out of lurkdom! EDD would be March 31st so I'll be a board straddler if we get pregnant this cycle. I've never been due at the very end of a month. Due dates with DS and DD were early and mid-month and then they both came early anyway.

Anyway....thought I'd hang out here....

Hi Mel. Smile Thanks for your opinion on my chart. I think Mother Nature is playing with me this month. I was up multiple times with DD last night so i dont think my temp was accurate but if I use the temp it says I O'd on the 18th, if I discard it I'm still waiting. Getting up early tomorrow so that temp won't be great either. Then I'll be going back home. Guess we will just keeping DTD and see what happens. Beee

Hi Becky! yeah I hate charts like that when you have no clue what happened. Getting up with Claire would change your temps all over the place. I'd just keep DTD every 3 days or so in case you haven't O'd yet.
