Waiting to O......

Dear God,

I want this baby. I have been dreaming about a little turkey for years and I would really love to welcome her/him during this special season of giving thanks.

Love,
S

Sarah, I really hope your prayer comes true.

I'm going to officially move over here. AF showed yesterday, so now I'm waiting again. The calculator gave me an EDD of somewhere around Nov. 1. All my babies have been late, so here I am.

I'm heading over here too. BFP's are going to start rolling in over at Oct. Today is 14DPO for me and I'm staring at a snow white test. AF due tonight or tomorrow.

How unfair is it that a woman TTC has to stare at BFN's while PMSing?

So...any plans to change up the TTC routine this cycle? I'm gonna try eggwhites again. We used them and they worked when we TTC our first two. So, it's time to pull out that old trick. Smile This cycle would be soooo great for us. I'm really crossing my fingers.

Crossing my fingers for ALL of us!

Sarah, Rachel, when you expect to ovulate?

I'm only on CD2, so I'm a ways away yet.

Hey girls!

AF showed today, so I'm moving over to November. October was my ideal month / time frame, so I'm a little sad, BUT I'm happy that my cycle was finally normal last month, which it hadnt been since coming off BC a while back. Today is CD1 and I expect to O on CD16 or 17. EDD would be Nov 7-9, I think. DH isn't really thrilled about a due date too close to the holiday season, to be honest neither am I, but were moving forward anyway. And if we catch the egg this time I could deliver at the end of October anyway. Both of my boys were 2 weeks early, so I don't think it's unreasonable to hope Smile

So what are your thoughts about baby's birthday bein so close to Thanksgiving and Christmas (or Hanukkah, etc.) ??

I understand not wanting a newborn during the holidays. Newborns are all-encompassing for your energy. I think a good way to look at it, is that you will HAVE to focus on yourself and the baby. So, it's a great excuse to stay near home and keep things low key. Well, for me anyway, I love a good excuse to not over extend myself at the holidays.

The only other downside would be for the baby to have a birthday too close to Christmas. Mine is a week and a half after Christmas and growing up it was a bit annoying. But really now, I love it. it just doesn't matter.

I hope you get this cycle though, Jess.

Hi. I think I will head over here, not sure I can stay in October. At 14dpo I had a faint line. POAS (frer) in the dark at 4:30am the next morning (the ppower was out) packed it in my suitcase to look at later, a couple of hours later went to the toilet just before my flight and AF was starting. I would have a late Oct EDD but hoping moving a month ahead will work, I did with DS and got pregnant straight up.

The onnly thing I am doing diferently this month is I am working on fully weaning DS. I am so sad about it, but I posted the whole reason on Oct and can copy and paste over tonight when I get back to my own house and faster internet.

Well I just bought a big container of coffee, I had been holding off hoping for pregnancy, but have decided not to. You think this will mean a sticky bfp this month Smile

Oh man! I couldn't survive without coffee. I love it so. Actually I drink a bit more during pregnancy, cause my BP is so low. It helps somewhat. (midwife prescribed! lol)

Rachel, you'll be Oing soon, right? Lots of babydust!!

I'm about a week away from Oing.

Yay Jordan, we are on the same cycle. Cd 7 here for me. Only I have no idea when I will O. Lol. Last cycle it was Cd 20. I really hope it isnt that long this time. I am not using opks though this cycle. I am rather depressed after finding out I have a lutheal phase defect. Last cycle it was 7days. I dont have much hope this cycle but I am going to give it a try. Good luck to everyone.

I hate all this waiting...ugh. I'm in my brothers wedding in July. It would be really nice to actually purchase a bridesmaid dress. lol. I can't commit $150 to a dress that wont fit, either way. I'm just glad my soon to be SIL is so gracious and patient. All the other (7!) bridesmaids have their dresses. I'm the last hold out! haha.

Jordan-hope you have to get a dress with some extra room for your belly.

Wendy-I hope you O'ed. Keep BDing just in case.

Patrice- good luck.

Susan-how are you feeling?

As for me, I am kicking myself for giving all my left over opks to a friend to whom they worked wonders as seen by her BFP recently. I am super jealous, but trying to be soooo happy for her. So I wonder if I will O late again this cycle or actually be on time. Today is CD 10 so I guess it is time to start getting to work in case I O on time.

A for real negative OPK today. Yesterdays was darkish but still negative and my temp went back up today. Maybe I just had a terrible sleep the night before. I know I had a really strange dream early in the morning and maybe it screwed around with my sleep a bit and that caused a lower temp. Who knows, all I care about is getting a bfp in two weeks.

Hey Ladies!! I was a pretty active member of the community with my first DS and I loved it! We are TTC #3, so I am excited to be back among you. Smile I got AF on Tuesday, so now just waiting to O as well. I had Depo from June-December, and have had an irregular cycle since. I went back on the pill last month to jump start and sure enough she showed up! I'm just hoping it's a real life cycle this time, but it seems to be. (I spotted for weeks after Depo, but no real flow.) I am the most impatient person ever!! So this is hard for me! Here's to being PATIENT! Smile

I am SO shocked that you remember me! That makes me so excited to be back, what a fun community to be a part of. And what a great support system for pregnancy. I'm so hopeful to catch an egg this month! Thanks for the reply. Smile

I just have no idea what my chart is doing. Temps are still just average not up, but I got that OPK and some almost positives after that. I have a feeling I should just go to December with my chart so far.

well, ladies. I'm out. DH hurt his back pretty badly. He's off on disability and I fear we wouldn't afford another baby. We JUST last week bought a new minivan. Plus, he can't even lie still without pain, so DTD is out at least for this month.

I'll be back again perhaps, if things change. But until then, babydust to you all.

Oh no Jordan. I hope he is ok and that you are too. Hopefully he will feel better quickly. Good luck.

I decided I may just head to the stor for some opks. Lol. I need something to pee on to satisfy my addiction. Last opks I had were Internet ones so I never bought any from the store. What is your preferred brand?

Jordan, I'm sorry to hear that. I hope he has a quick recovery. He may have just pulled something. I get back problems when I don't exercise enough and gain weight and it seems like there's a major issue, but as soon as I get in shape, I have no problems. Fingers crossed it's something easily fixable!

I'm sorry to hear that Jordan. My husband has a serious back injury years ago (fracture) and had surgery to fix it. Back pain is the worst.

Well I still don't know WTF is going on this month, pretty sure I O'd, I had heaps of EWCM and a very positive OPK, but now still have lowish temps

Trying not to imagine everything is a symptom and waiting out the TWW (not much is happening over there so I came over here). I felt so off yesterday and like I wanted to throw up for a short while, dizziness most of the day, some aches and pains already this morning, laying on my stomach feels funny, bloated and a bit hungrier than usual. All off this likely mmeans nothing and I will be seeing af in a week and just proves I am insane

Wendy!! That's so exciting, (I am sorry your not feeling well though) are you having an intuition at all? My intuition ALWAYS says I'm preg so I can't trust mine. Haha. I'm feeling hopeful for you! Smile

Nope no intuition. My DS when asked says theres no baby in my belly, the last two months he has said there is. I went to bed so early last night, I wish DS would have as well to sleep off the headache. It's mostly gone now but I am super tired. So far my only feeling is I will be moving on to December (my next EDD would be very late November). I feel fine this morning, no nausea at this stage. I'm 10dpo today, usually if I am pregnant I have signs of my chart going triphasic by now, but I don't think it has.

Well I'm holding out hope for you.. Are you going to test or wait? I wish I had the patience to wait. Luckily this cycle we will be out of town for 10 DPO to 14 DPO so I will have to wait until we get home anyway. Otherwise I would be testing every one of those days until AF showed up. Good luck!! Keep us posted, I'm anxious already. Wink

I want to test so I can be prepared for/if af shows up, but after two chem pregnancies in a row I am too scared to test. It was so easy to wait with DS until af was due, this time it's not, I have no idea why. So short answer no idea when I will test
Oh and for 'symptom watch' we went for a team lunch at work and when someone walked out of the bar area the smell of the beer made me feel yuck, we then went to another place for lunch and I went to the toilets which stank of what smelt like urinal cakes, but it was really strong. I also had a small dose of dry heaves driving home this evening, feel like I always need to spit, and have felt a bit off, but that may be from the headache yesterday.

I think I'm still waiting to O ... But I'm not really sure anymore. Last month was the first time I used OPKs and it was also the first time since coming off BC that my cycle was 100% normal. I had used the OPKs from pretty early on that cycle, as I didn't have any idea when I would o. I had a positive OPK just after midnight on CD15. I poas 2 more times within 24 hrs and they were still positive. so I assume I O'd on cd15 or 16. I did have EWCM and a ripe cervix at that time.

This time I started using the OPKs on cd11. The first one was very dark and super close to positive. I almost couldn't tell. But when it dried it didn't look as close to positive, just dark. So I left it negative and kept poas. I may have had a few signs of O then, but nothing i was confident about. Now at cd18, still all neg OPKs, none even kind of dark. And I take them roughly every 12-14 hours, so I don't feel like I would miss it.

I'm just super confused, did I O super early? Did I not O? Will I O sometime soon? Did i somehow miss it?

If I did O early, we BD on cd8 and cd10, so that might be good timing, but I'd have liked to get one more in. Anyway, I'm obsessing over this. And DH has no idea what I'm talking about. UGH! Sorry for the rant ladies, thanks for letting me get this off my chest.

Wendy, I'm the same way about not being able to wait for AF anymore. Even though I know a BFN will break my heart, I can't help but POAS constantly until I get a BFP or AF. It's not within my control, so I just go with it. When do you think you will test?

Jessica, I have never been one to know when I O. I'm not as organized of a person as I wish I were, so I just roll with the punches and make sure to DTD as much as possible when I should be fertile. So I'm probably not going to be much help for you, or have the best advice. Although it has become pretty methodical to get pregnant now days, I still feel there is some mystery in leaving it up to your body to take the reins at some point. So if we miss our egg this month, maybe I will feel compelled to chart a little more next month but for now I'm just going to see how my body is going to react to my desire for DS or DD #3.
