This cycle is just creeping by. I feel as if years have gone by in these past 9 days. And I'm working a lot too. I think its because I've been working 12 hour days so I've just been awake longer. So yep 9dpo today and I broke down and tested. Negative.
Megan-Your friend outing sounds fun! Margaritas are the bomb and if I get my period next week, I will be treating myself to one.
Jessica-Sorry again about AF. Hate AF. Seriously if I didn't want kids, I would do something to get rid of her forever. I've been wanting to try divacups. Maybe I will try it soon. I have a hard time with tampons though, is the divacup even harder to get in? I switched to cloth pads about a year ago because my flow became way too light to wear tampons...they would get stuck up there (Ouch!!!). Cloth pads are fine, but they are a pain to keep up with, cleaning and all. Sorry if that was way too much TMI.
Hi everybody I am on day 10, in the waiting to O club too. Right now I am on Metformin, Folic acid and a prenatal vitamin. we are trying for our 3rd child. I have 2 daughters Victoria who is 5 turning 6 on July 27 and Sarah is 1 years old. June is a busy month for us with soccer tournament, finishing with school and last day of gymnastics and finally we are going camping this weekend with friends. Good luck to everyone, wishing for O vibes, baby dust, BFP vibes and sticky vibes!! Have a great weekend.

Elizabeth - Just saw that your ticker is showing CD2, sorry Looks like we're still in this together! I think you're the first person I've come across on pg.org with the same TTC start date, maybe we'll end up on the same BB some day? How is temping going for you now? Are you getting the hang of it?
I just went to see my doctor today for my annual physical, asked a few questions about TTC. The short story is that he doesn't see any issue with us TTC even though FH goes for regular CT scans and MRIs, said that I won't need the rhogam shot since both FH and I are + blood types, and that since we're both young and healthy, we're good to go. I was happy to hear all of that, but a little bummed that he said that he'd still suggest actively trying for a year before sending FH for a semen analysis, despite his health history. I typically would understand, but FH had one testicle removed just over a year ago, and all we can do is cross our fingers that the other one works as it should!! If a year comes and goes without getting pg, he has the SA done, and we find out that there was something else we could have done, I'll be a bit upset, even though I love my doctor!
In a nutshell, the diva cup is AMAZING. I always hated pads, and same deal with tampons. I always always worried about leaking too. I switched to cloth pads/liners for light days, and use the diva cup for the real flow. It took about 2 cycles to get used to, so I always tell everyone to give it at least a couple of months. I know you can find some pretty good deals on them, but I paid $50 for the one I have, and have been using it for years now. Compare that against what you pay monthly for pads and tampons, and it's easy to see that it's a good investment!
Yep, AF showed. DH was super bummed. Suddenly he has baby fever. I haven't started temping. I'm going to have to change my whole setup in order to do it. I use my phone as an alarm, but the only outlet in my room is far from my bed, so I have to get up to shut it off or else the dog will go crazy. So I need to setup an extension cor in order to temp every morning. Lol.
Jessica, you are on CD14, your 2ww is coming up. Hope this cycle works out for you.
Megan, congrats on your BFP! I was lurking in the BB and saw that! How exciting.
Pam, I hpe you get a +opk soon.
AFM-I had a great week until Thursday when my tire exploded on the highway and I spun out and lost control of my car. I'm ok, but it was really scary and my car has a lot of damage. I just got some scholarship money for my arch exams, sucks that I have to spend it all on getting my car fixed.
Elizabeth - Yikes! Glad to hear that it's only car damage and that you weren't injured! Scary stuff.. I was in a head-on collision back in Feb., and it's terrifying when you know you don't have control!
Maybe that's all your DH needed! The realization that it's just not "that easy" seems to come as a shock sometimes. I know you mentioned that you use the FF app too, try the alarm within the app! If you respond to that alarm, it takes you right into a screen to add your temp, I find it easy to go right back to sleep after that. Can you tell that I love the app!? LOL. It has made my life much easier.
Megan and Crystal - Congrats on your BFPs!
