Temping fail. I never heard my alarm going off this morning. DH says he heard it but it was really quiet and didn't bother to poke me or anything. This early in the cycle I guess it doesn't matter but I had better start waking up to my alarm!
I kinda envy you Rach. I'm such a light sleeper, I have my phone alarm set to vibrate and it wakes me up--no sound at all!
Aww thanks! I have a whole bunch of jewelry I'll be adding in May, just waiting to get the photos made.
I'm just going to leave my chart alone. No matter how I tweak it, our "conception chances" are only good instead of high... unless I leave the unsuccessful BD in, then it's high... but that's because it doesn't know it's unsuccessful. I'm hoping my temp continues to rise! We'll see I spose. Like I said before, if this cycle isn't it I'm temping at 4am next cycle instead of 6-630.
What 5dpo means to me....
License to imagine every twinge might be implantation
Scroll through ff pregnancy charts
Wonder what that little backache might be from
Lol! I actually had a really good talk with a friend yesterday about realizing how little control we have over life. And how we try to hang onto it. Anyways, feeling pretty chipper over here!
Natalie- I enjoyed the shameless link to your etsy shop as well!
Rach- glad you are back in the game, besides the temp fail :-)
Kelly- thanks! And yay for those ff pregnancy points. Lol!! Hope that baby gets nice and cozy!!
GL with your
Rachel...ack!! I'm actually a really heavy sleeper but my youngest is a very effective alarm several times throughout the night !
Natalie...I agree, your clips are beautiful!! I can't wait to see the new pics in May!
Kay...lol, I would have taken "good"...my chances were "low" but evidently sufficient . your temps keep going up!! !!!
EBennet...hang in there ! I hope the next few days speed by...the wait sure stinks but it will be totally worth it this cycle !!
Cindy...my OPKs do that too. I've never gotten a sustained +...it's only positive around 11am and 7pm. I'm assuming it has something to do with diluted urine or needing time to build up...not sure.
Jessie...(((HUGS))) for your friend ...I'm so sorry she's facing an ectopic and surgery, really praying they're able to leave her tube intact.
I'm starting to wonder if my spotting is af trying to show up...having af-type cramps that come and go (started last night). I had a 10 day LP in January and af came while I was still on progesterone so I don't think it's necessarily too early. I'm going to assume it still has something to do with implantation. My plan of attack is looooots of water and R&R . I've been feeling nauseous most of the day so that's encouraging. I've never had implantation bleeding or bleeding of any kind this early so this is new for me. Please, bear with my over-analyzing !
Kelly -- super sticky vibes for you! That test was a BFP for sure. Hang on to that image mentally and just send healthy energy to your bean.
I'm...starting to get really antsy. Like I just want to go to bed so I can wake up and temp. I just want to know now! It doesn't help that my work today is just...being a pain and I can't figure it out. I don't want to be stuck behind my desk, but I don't know what else I would do either LOL. I'm nervous!
Wow ladies there has been so much traffic today! I tried to go through all the posts but it is so much and then I ended up in yesterday's posts! That's what I get for reding them backwards lol
Babypayne- I have had that happen to me before- sometimes your LH goes up and then you don't o for some reason, and then it goes up and you O (or don't, which has happened to me a few times, so I stopped using OPKs, and just temp now). But I hope you do O for real today! GL!!
As for me- I woke up from nightmares about a zombie apocalypse at 4am so I didnt temp because I didnt want to stress over an unreliable temp. And it looks like my trigger is nearly out of my system. Maybe I will start testing at the end of this week But I am going to try to hold out until monday!
I just tried to take pics of them and once they are all dried, they look exactly the same. Two days worth are all pos. Okie-dokie then.
So now the question is, do I take the Ovidrel shot six days after yesterday or today? (I'm supposed to take the shot 6 days after LH surge)
Cindy...I've read to stop testing after the first +opk since that's the only one that matters so I would start in 5 days .
Natalie...(((hugs))) I hear you! I was so ready to be done with the 2ww!! I couldn't wait for bedtime so I could wake up and temp/test !!
Liza...eeek, so close!!! Really praying we both get to stick around the Dec dd room for the next 8-9months !
I am so nauseous tonight I feel like throwing up but I'm still spotting/cramping like af and something new...clots ! I'm still only spotting so I can't imagine they're af clots and I would think I'm way too early into a pg to even pass clots (they're pea-sized, sorry if tmi). This is a new one for me ! I'm emailing my midwife to see if she'll fax a lab order for beta and progesterone to my lab. Still hoping for the best .
babypayne - mine do that too. i can only get a pos with SMU after not drinking anything and holding it for 3 hours... and then around 8-10 pm under the same circumstances. it's silly, but i think it has to do with dillution and if you pee too many times close together the hormone doesn't have time to build in your urine. 1 positive is better than none, so get busy !!!!!!!
Kelly - I wish I had any experience so i could offer you some support. i don't know if these things are normal or not, but I would assume if you're not bleeding heavily or in any pain you should still be ok! I'm sending you tons of I hope you hear back from your midwife soon! KUP! I'm still so happy for you, how on earth are you going to be able to wait until friday to tell your DH?!
Natalie - I feel the same way! I just want to go to bed so I can wake up and temp. I think that's part of what makes me not able to sleep well at night either. It's ridiculous, but i just want to make sure my temp is going up. That drop yesterday makes me soooo nervous, but we'll see I guess. As for your chart though... amazing. I keep looking at it with excitement, happiness, and maybe even a tiny bit of jealousy! LOL I can't wait for you to test!
Kelly---ooh I'm going to pray for good numbers for you! So exciting!
Kay -- Same for you with that temp!
I think if my "normal time" temp is up tomorrow, I will test. Eek!
Does anyone know how long the trigger stays in your system? I had some very mild cramping last night but today I am so tired. I slept a normal amount last night and I just took a two-hour nap and am still completely exhausted. I'm wondering if it is from the HCG trigger? I would think that it's too early for me to be actually preggo...
Jen--your chart is looking good! I think it's totally reasonable to feel fatigue. Unfortunately either explanation is just as likely. I have no idea how long the trigger stays around.
Ahhh so much to respond to! Can I just say all you ladies keep me sane and I think of you all often and pray we all get to DD rooms soon!!!
Kelly - yay for betas! Will be stalking for results... I'm off tomorrow so plenty of stalking time!!
As for me I am not preventing this cycle. Just gonna do the same things we've been doing and see what happens!
Well......my DH's surgery is scheduled for April 26th.....so that is my next count down.....will start a new thread when there is more to update.........
Jen...LOL, you can add me graduate me in the April Testers thread ...I'll post there when I get my beta today but you can add me whenever you get the chance...woot!!!!
I'm not sure about the trigger...I'd ask over at stc to see what the ladies there have to say. I don't think it's too early to be having symptoms though... it's because you're pg !!!!!
Natalie...stalked your chart this morning (((hugs)))...still early and looking forward to seeing a bfp from you in a few days !!!
Jessie...oooh, really hoping this cycle will be it for you now that the metformin has had some time to do its thing !!!
My test this morning (just a wondfo) http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/...ncy-test117079...it's darker than yesterday's so I'm feeling encouraged. My spotting has turned into a light flow overnight but the cramps stopped and I'm still feeling nauseous today . I can't wait to see my betas...not expecting a high number since my pg test is still light but I'll be happy with anything over 5 !
