    I am going nuts here, I have been watching every sign and now they are getting weird on me.I took my temp today and it was 97.3 and yesterday it was 97.5 before that it was 97.6, I haven't even o yet. I have watching my CP and CM and CP is higher and softer and CM is wet but not GW, I also have been doing the OPK and there is a line but it isn't that dark. Maybe I'm getting closer and that is why I'm showing some of the signs.I hope I get a + OPK tomarrow. I'll have to waite and see. I am having cramping now and thats really messing with me.
    I just had to pause in my writing for a sec to go to the bathroom and I have the CM becoming more like the EW that I have heard about, now I'm starting to get pumped. Ireally am feeling better now. I guess I just made myself upset for nothing. This is my first month charting and so I didn't know what to look for or expect. I found this site called Family of the Americas, and it teaches you the NFP method and it even gives you picture of what the CM should look like through the diff stages. That is NFP for Dummies. I hope my dh is up for it tonight. We start the BD tonight and then EO night for the next week. I really hope I can see through my charting when of if I o.

    Well I still have a - OPK but my temps are showing a dip. I went on the tem and NFP board and asked if someone could look at my chart and tell me that everything was ok that that would help me not go crazy (I didn't say it like that but I felt that way), Someone wrote back right away and she said my chart looked great and it looked like I was getting ready to o, she also said that if the temp dipps for atleast three days and then shoots up that is when I o. According to all the ovulation calculators I have done, I should have the big o on sat or sun. I am getting scared now thoughbecause the OPK is still neg. This is were I really get screwed up, I am going to stress myself into not ovulating.Of the four things I'm watching, three are doing what I thought they should and one isn't.My CM, CP, and temp are doing good, my OPK isn't. I hope tomarrow I get a +. The funny thing is that it feels like my cervix is opening a little or something because I have been feeling these little pains right there and the reason I know that is what it is is because when I had my ds I remember feeling my cervix open with my contractions. It doesn't hurt that bad now but I can tell that something is happening there. I think I read somewhere that it opens a little when o is coming to allow the to get into the "private club". It's a party and they all want to come. ( bad joke).
    well thats it for now but the way things are going, I write more latter

    I had to go to the dr ( not obgyn ) today for my arm and he sent me for a lung X-Ray to see if there is a tumer in the upper left lung, I don't think they will find anything they are just doing it to rule that out as a thing that is causing me to have pain in my elbow. I guess that some peole who have this tumer because of were it is it presses on a nerve that goes down your are and causes you to have these pains that I'm having.
    On the baby side of things
    Dh and I bd last night, I got up and my temp was down lower today so thats three days in a row that it has dropped. The OPK I took was - so I think that I will o tomarrow. It was darker today then the other days but not dark enough. I will have to get more . I was told by my dr that if I bd every night it will lower dh , so we will hold out until tomarrow. I have been really up for bd lately and I don't know why. I mean more so then usual. I wonder if that is a side effect to the hormones or something?
    Well thats it for now.

    YEA!!!!!!!!! I got a BFN, the kind you like to get. I just talked to my arm dr and they said that my X-Ray is a BFN, that is going to be the only time this month that I want to hear that. I got scared because I smoked for ten years and quit three years ago when I found out I was preg. I was also raised around it since I was born, both my parents smoked until I was 18, I started when I was 13 so I got nervous because I know alot of damage was done to my lungs. I'm glad I quit and it's funny that now the smell of a smoker or cigaretts make me sick. I can't believe how nasty it is to me now. I haven't smoked in three years and I am so proud of myself. My dr. said that if that was ruled out then they might have to go in my elbow again and see whats going on in there. I had carpotunal and ulnar nerve surgery in june of last year and it sucked because my arm was in a sling for 6 weeks. I told them that I am not putting off having a baby so they can cut me open again, my dr. is gtreat, he said they can waite until I have my next before we talk about that, I have to go to a nerologist ( sorry if I spelled that wrong )
    I hate seeing them, they stick little needles between your fingers in the web like skin, IT HURTS LIKE HECK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have to have it done so they can see how much damage has been done. I haven't really been able to use my left arm and hand for 2 years now. I have lost most of my strength. They do these strength tests and you have to squeeze this pressure tester and they told me a average man can sqeeze 80 lbs I squeezed between 35 and 40 with my left and 110 with my right. 35 even 40 aren't good. When I had my surgary last year I couldn't sqeeze 10. I hate having to go through this. It is really hard to take care of a toddler with one arm. I am counting on being better by the time we have another baby. I am now since my surg about 40% better then I was before. That is one better then when I had my DS.
    Well thats it for now

    OK, I don't kow what to think. MY temps went from 97.1 yesturday to 98.2 today. I thouhgt I wasn't going to o until sunday my CM is gone but when I took the OPK yesturday it wasn't dark enough. My body says I Oed but the OPK says I didn't. Should I believe my body or the test? If I did O yesturdy then I only got one day of bd in before I did. I know with most "normal women" that is all they need but I don't think it will be enough for me. I' m not getting my hopes up this month, I don't think this is our month. I really wanted it because DH b-day is on Dec 28 and I thought that would be a great present . I knew we should have bd on the 26th. Well thats it for now, DH is taking us for a drive today so that we can all spend time together this weekend.
    GL to everyone else

    ok I am REALLY messed up now. My temps say I Oed yesturday and my OPK just turned + today I thought that my CM was gone but it isn't and it is fluid and slippery. I don't know what is wrong with me. I am going to bd tonight just to make sure I can up my chances. I am going crazy.

    I am so upset now. I am so mad because I had this plan on how I was going to bd this month and I thought that I still had one more chance to bd before I oed. I don't know what is going on with my body. THIS STINKS!!! I was hopping that it would be really clear when I Oed. I guess this way isn't going to be less stressful on me then going on a site and doing the ovulation calculatores and going by that. I hate this. I know that I wont be preg this month.

    Well I guess I am 2DPO, I don't know if I really Oed that day or not. I didn't have any O pains or any other sing of it even my OPK was neg until yesterday. I even still have CM, enough to tell me that the temp thing has to be wrong. I am actually getting a pain in my left side now. I read somewhere that if you put your middle finger on your leg (were you can feel your pulse)and lay your handsflat on your legs still with your middle finger onthat spot, you should have your index finger over a gland in your leg that swells when you O you can feel it, they say it is about the size of a pea, and which ever side you feel it on is the side you Oed on. I can't even find the pulse in my leg so I won't be able to find the pea. I am going to bd as much as I can until I get a BFP of AF. I was really hoping to get preg this month. I guess there is still a very small chance.
    I really shouldn't complain because I have my DS and he is the love of my life. I am still craving another. It's like chips, YOU CAN'T JUST HAVE ONE . I wish all my baby dust this month on all you wonderful woman. I pray that God blesses all of you with a baby before the end of the year.
    I hate that I have to wiate so long between O's. I as mistaken about the length of my cycles though, they are 39 days not 40, I counted CD 1 as 40, MY BAD. I get one day less to stress. YEAH FOR ME.

    Well I guess I am 2 or 3 DPO, if you go by my temp, if you go by my OPK then I Oed yesturday or today ( I got a + yesturday and a - today )
    I am starting to think that this chartng is going to be OK until I get near O. I have been so stressed out that my ulsar is KILLING ME . I have been havng truble with my arm too. I hurt more then mst people twice my age do. I had a dr. tell me once that by the time I'm 30 I will have a hard time walking but THANK GOD for His healing power, I haven't had any real problems with my lnees in a while. I had surgery in june on my elbow and wrist, since then my wrist is better but my elbow isn't plus there is still the problem with my shoulder. I have to deal with comp for all the problems with my arm. That right there gives me alot of stress. They tell me to go find a job when NO ONE will hire a one armed ging that can't do just about anything with my upper body.
    I am so tired, I am starting to wonder if I just say forget it and stop TTC, maybe it will happen faster. You hear about that happening all the time. I just don't know if I can really forget it. I wonder sometimes if any of the women who get preg after they " stop trying " really didn't stop but told their DH they did. If you try for months or years you can't really forget something like that.
    Well thats it for now, I'm running out of stupid things to say.

My wonderful mom works at The Univercity of Rochester in NY, she was walking down the hall to fill her water bottle when she saw a man and his daughter walking the other way. She stopped the man and ( to thoes who LOVE him forgive me if I don't spell his name right) said " are you KEVIN COSNER?" he was there looking at the school with his daughter. OMGosh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    MY MOM GOT TO MEET ROBINHOOD< OMGosh!!!!!!!!!! She was so happy and that put me in a great mood. I like it when cool things happen to people I love. My BIL is a music produser and he getts to work with all diff stars. I got to meet the girl that played the youngest sister on the fresh prince Tatiana ali. she is VERY short and thin.anyway I wanted to put that in because as long as I don't know how he feels about the war and our pres. I LOVE KEVIN
