hey girls!

mel- thanks for starting the new post! I hope you have a nice birthday dinner in Indy. Maybe the stent will help your grandmother's kidney.

trisha- i will say a prayer for you that it is implantation blood and not early AF spotting.

Thanks Mel for starting a new post!! Perfect name too!!

OK! I have been extremely exhausted all day, and I went to bed at a normal time, woke up at a normal time, worked at a normal pace, but since Thurs/Fri all I want to do is sleep. I don't do this, unless I'm sick. But this is only cycle # 2 since being off of BCP's and I don't know what a "normal" cycle is for me anymore! It's been 8 years since I have been off of BCP's!!! I have weird dull aches all day long in my lower abdomen.. I'm just hoping that AF doesn't show on Friday..... I want to be on the train!!!!! lol! But my temps are scaling much different than last cycle!!! Argh this waiting game....

Hello Everyone. Just stopping by to say on the new post.

Amanda - I was suprised when he said "We will talk in TWO weeks." Hopefully its his hormones and all he needs is meds.

Praying for lots of BFP's this month.

MACK- Are just you and DH going or are you bringing the kids, too? I bet you have alot to do to prepare for the trip. I hope that planning and making all these decisions takes your mind off of TTC and you will be pleasantly surprised with your BFP really soon. Apparently "not thinking about it" is the key to getting pregnant- at least that is what everyone tells me!

MEL- I'm so sorry you are having to spend your birthday at the hospital! Have a good dinner tonight!

Tricia- I hope your spotting doesn't turn into AF! I so want you to be able to POAS this time :)

Kristina- Hey sleepy girl! LOL Can't wait for you to test!

Cristy- Thinking about you and hoping AF is staying far, far away...

2ww #4 hooray!

Kristina~ Ditto what everyone is saying! I hope is it not ips but ps. Fingers crossed and prayers being said for ya!

Laura~ Does it feel like you are getting closer to O? I am sorry for the long cycle.

Mel~ How was your Bday? How is grandma doing?

T~ I am so hoping for good things at Eloy's next appointment! Things are looking good for ya!

Jenn~ When do you test next week? We look like we could be cycle/testing buddies! AF is due next Friday for me so I will probably test Saturday or Sunday depending on how long I can wait and what my temps look like!

tricia- thanks :) my boobs are doing things they havent done since i got my bfp with jordan! heres hoping it means something.

ive been having ips symptoms like CRAZY! ive been walking around in my undies all day because im so hot and my boobs are killing me. even my shirt brushing them is excruciating. burning stabbing pain! craziness

Hey girls, I'm FINALLY home! Whew, what a LONG day at the hospital! Gramma came out of surgery just fine - she wasn't even in there hardly 10 minutes. They couldn't do more than put the stint in b/c she was bleeding from the blood thinners so much. She was acting quite spunky by the time we left though, which is good. Andrew & I had a very nice dinner at Rock Bottom Brewery and I had a HUGE piece of triple chocolate cheesecake - YUMMY! :)

Lisa- SORRY! I couldn't have more than 1 browser window open at a time at the hospital and I forgot to cut and paste, so I was working off memory = not so good! LOL

Kristina & Lisa - I hope those IPS are really just PS and ya'll get your BFP's soon!

Jenn - YAY you popped into this thread! We'll get through this week and then have to make a new list for next week b/c there's several gals coming up next week too I think!

Joleene - not sure about Cristy although I don't know when (if) she'll test again. I think her temp was down again today so that's why I didn't put her back on the list. I hope AF stays far away from her!

Lisa- Wow- that sounds great! Of course I'm sorry you're in pain, but I'm excited for what is hopefully a RPS (real pregnancy symptom!)

Joleene- I have no idea. I'm guessing a week, give or take? No real CM to speak of yet so probably a week. The latest I've ever O'd is CD29 and I'm really hoping it doesn't take that long. You've got some pretty temps for the first few days in the 2ww!

MEL- I like that your gramma is in good spirits! Attitude means everything when dealing with this kind of stuff. And I'm glad you got your birthday cake!!! :o)

laura- :D you will be O'ing soon!!

joleene- sry im late but YAY for lines :D

Thanks ladies-I'm hoping so too. But if not, oh well, I'll be positive and I'll try again next cycle!! But it would be easier on me if it happened sooner than later.

Hi ladies, I don't know if I will bother testing this cycle or not. Took a tes yesterday and it a negative. I guess if it didn't show + by then then I am not pregnant. Tomorrow is the last day of my cycle and the bitch should show up on the following day. Oh well.

Mel, your chart is looking really pretty.

I am in such a foul mood. DH pissed me off. He called me this morning and told me that he felt a sharp pinching pain go through his testies and it hurt to walk. Well, I think he might have a hernia and if un-treated can cause infertility or worst, be fatal. So instead of going to the doctors today he wants to wait till his douchebag boss sends him to the doctor for it to go on workmans comps (since the boss told him he will make him a dr appointment). Grrr, I hate how ignorant men can be. Sorry to vent on here.

Veronica - does BM have your O date right? I think it's still early hun! And OWWWW is your DH invincible? Hope he gets to the hospital or Dr ASAP! I can't even imagine!

Once again, not even 9:30 and I'm going to bed... Actually, I'm going to read a bit of my new book DH got me today - Tori Spelling's "MOMMYWOOD" - I can't wait! : )

No, BM has o'day very wrong. I o'd on CD15 which makes me 13dpo. Which looking back at past charts 14dpo is when AF usually shows. I know for a fact I o'd on cd15 because I looked at my cervix and it was open and I had ewcm. On cd22 like bm says my cervix was closed tight and my cm was dry.

DH is an idiot. Last time he had a hernia (on his pubic area, can't remember if it was inguinal or heiatal) he went on his own will because he couldn't stand the pain. To me it feels like he is doing it on purpose to make sure we don't have another child. But that could just be my insecurities getting the best of me. You women are lucky that ya'lls guys share their hopes and the TTC struggle with ya'll. Mine always tells me he doesn't want to talk about it because of all the years of coming up with failures. He says he doesn't wanna hold his breath for something that more than likely isn't going to happen. :(

My ticker is wrong and I can't get it to the correct data.

mel- im really hoping that drop today is an ID :)

sister- you know my opinion about your chart! idk what could be up with travis...maybe he really IS trying to keep yall from paying for it. im sure it will cost alot, i know thats no excuse for waiting but who knows!

i took my temp and it was 100.2, it was this high the month of may, it will be interesting to see what happens to my temps in the morning. but even though my temp is up, i am having cold chills, weird. i dont think i am sick, i dont feel sick? also, every month i have twinges in my uterous area, does anyone know what causes it?

mel- tell us how good that book is! i was thinking of getting it too! i love tori!

veronica- i am sorry you are having to go through this. this isnt the best time of the month to be having added stress! if he has a history of hernia's, you would think he would go get looked at, but that is the way men are. do you think he will go if you make an appt for him?

Temp was back up slightly this morning but I'm having my killer back cramps already so I am not hopeful at all. :( I woke up at 2:30 AM nearly in tears b/c my back hurt SO bad! I never sleep flat on my back but that's the only way I could get the pain to subside enough to get some rest.... My CM is super creamy and when I wiped it on the toilet paper, it had just the faintest pink tinge, but not enough to really call spotting so who knows. I won't be surprised when AF shows up either later today or tomorrow. So much for a longer LP...

Tricia - good luck today! I really hope you get to POAS! I have to go back to work today which means no BM time for me until lunchtime. If anything important happens, email me at [email protected].

Good morning ladies! I'm just posting my chart! Once again, it went up .1, slow climber....

Mel-remember NOT to give up until the b***h shows!

Veronica-DH just needs to go see the ER doc, or an Urgent Care doc so he can get that issue fixed!

Jessica-Be careful about cold chills, when they are associated with a high temp, it is usually a fever, whether it's a cold, or from heat exhaustion, you need to hydrate yourself so that your temp, and body, can regulate itself. Be careful today!

I work until 4 CST, so I won't be on until later! Have a great day ladies!!!

Mel--so sorry that you were in pain last night. Do you usually get horrible back pain with AF?
My temp is up today, and I have had no more tiny spots of red. I did POA HPT at 5am this morning. It was a $ tree test (I have one more of those left, so I figured I'd use those up first (unless I wake with some undeniable symptom. Anyway, it was clearly negative.
So, I want a little longer...

By the way, I had two temps to pick from again today. I got up about 1 hour early (after having slept all night)...my temp was 98.17 (that is when I took the HPT) and it was 4am.
went back to sleep and woke at 5:15 am (normal testing time) and it was 98.07. I chose to use the later temp...but what do you all think? I guess it really doesn't matter so much...just wondering what you girls would do.

Kristina - love your chart! Lookin good!

Tricia - YAY you got to POAS!!! Sorry it was BFN, but it's still early! And even more YAY for no more spotting! And YES I always have killer back cramps before and during AF.

My CM has a bit more color to it now, kinda brownish. I guess I should rejoice in the fact that Clomid made me ovulate at least and I appear to be getting ready to have a cycle on my own for the first time since February instead of having to take crummy Provera! There, that's my silver lining for the day! : )

Tricia-I would use the 4am temp actually, because everything I have read says to use the temp that is after 3+ hours of undisturbed sleep. Thanks! I just hop my temp stays up, and AF keeps her ugly face away!!!!

Mel---I think you are right to be positive about your cycle this time around. It is HUGE that your ovulated.....and that AF seems to be coming on her own...instead of needing meds. Things are happening in just the right timing for you to get that August BFP!
(I'm not completely losing hope on you though...you had a dip yesterday, so the brownish stuff could still be IB?)

brenda- could you have missed your surge? hopefully you will get your +opk soon :)

kristina- your chart is awesome :)

Lisa - good luck today! Don't forget that oral health is part of your overall fertility health, so you are getting yourself one step closer to a healthy pregnancy. You probably wouldn't want to be dealing with this during pregnancy :-) Hang in there.

Cristy/Mel - still no show from AF?

Brenda - maybe the Clomid is messing with your OPK? Mel is on Clomid and also didn't get an OPK+.

Kristina - nice slow rise!

Theresa - are you able to take a mental break from TTC for a bit? (but not from BDing)

As for moi - DH sees his GP his afternoon. I hope he doesn't forget to go...lol. His results were not in on Friday, so hopefully they are now. I'm still waiting for the EWCM - it's hard to tell with so much BDing....

my temp is up this morning and I too am having back cramps

mel- do you think your dr. will check your progestrone level next month? you may need progestrone, if you dont have enough progestrone, it doesnt matter if the egg got fertilized because your body will start shedding it's uterine lining before the egg implants all the way. (ie. early miscarriage) I am happy that you O's on your own this month though. and i am sorry (if) Af is coming.

trisha- sorry about the bfn.

kristina- thanks....your chart looks great

lisa- good luck at your surgery today.

christy- sorry about your back cramps, my friend that is pregnant said that was her only early preg symptom. she had cramps like she was about to get AF. and you havent went below the coverline yet!

brenda- good morning!

Trisha- thats a great temp this morning! And its really early so don't be upset about that BFN at all!

Cristy- Well, dang... I am so sorry about the low temps and AF cramps... How are you doing? Do you have a follow-up appointment about you cyst scheduled? I can't remember...

Mel- I am just soooo very happy that this cycle you O'd this cycle :) I'm sorry about the spotting, but you are right- you definitely have that silver lining this cycle!

Veronica- I really hope your DH changes his mind. It's really unsafe for him to to have an untreated hernia just like you said. So sorry!

Kristina- nice temp!

Jessica - unless I go to my old OB or my GP, I doubt I'll get my progesterone checked by my current OB. He didn't think that my 10 day LP was a problem when I brought it up to him back in March. I am just going to bump up the B6 from 100 to 200mg and hopefully that will help.

Cristy - ugh your preggo friend needs to find SOMEWHERE ELSE to land! You don't need that pushed in your face right now. Sorry, I'm a little sensitive today apparently! I know you're not optimistic, and like I should talk, but you're still above cover line and you know cramps could be an early PG sign too! I hope the witch shows if she's gonna, otherwise she needs to move on down the road!

Lisa - good luck w/ your surgery today.

Amanda - I hope your DH gets great results from his SA today!

Mel & Cristy~ Yuck on the cramping and pain! But it ain't over yet!

Lisa~ Good luck druing surgery today! Just think of all the BM time you will have while you are recuperating!

laura~ Have your doctors decided when you are going to have the polypectomy/laproscopy? Did I miss that? I am sorry this is turning into a very long cycle for you!

Brenda~ I am sorry that yours is turning into such a long cycle too. I pray that O comes soon for you!

Kristy~I don't know anything about fertility monitors so I don't have anything to offer you but support, sorry!

Jess~ Your temp looks good. Did you figure out why it was so high last night? How do you feel this morning?

My temp is up again today. I was actually sweating right before I took my temp, and I took it fifteen minutes early. I have to go in on Friday and have my blood tested for progesterone level. I am trying not to get my hopes up. Too soon yet.
