Weekly Check-In - 1/30/13

Hey All!! I saw in the 2013 baby bumps group that they did this... and I think it would be fun to start this here too :) Just post a quick (or long if you need to vent) blurb about how your week is going and if anything is new with you!

Today I am on CD 26... waiting patiently to test on Saturday 2/2/13 (testing early... but I can't help it!!). I don't know how many DPO I am, DH and I decided not to OPK or temp or anything this month to see if it helps me stress less!! :) So... FX for a BFP!!! I had some weird cramps on Monday.... and AF isn't due until 2/3/13 so that is early.... but I'm trying not to look into it.


 


Hope everyone else is great this week!! :)

I am on CD 21, 7 DPO. I am worried that I didn't exactly ovulate though, because I had two temps dip below coverline (one to pre-O levels) and never got a positive OPK. I should expect my period on 2/7 but I might test a little earlier haha. Even if I do get my period around that time I will just be happy that at least my body seems to be regulating itself after Depo :).

GREAT idea Kristen!


I'm a little confused - I went to see my doc yesterday for results from some blood tests last month.  He thinks I had a miscarriage as my progesterone was high.  I'm a little confused on how I should feel though because AF came like clockwork so I'm not quite sure whether he is right or not.  On the plus though, all my tumor stuff is better from the medication I'm taking FX I'll get a BFP soon!!


I've been doing those LF ovulation tests this week but so far no smiley face. FX for something soon.  Right now I've just restarted all my charting as I don't think I was doing it properly before :-/


FX for baby dust all round :)

Great idea!


I'm on CD 21, and a measley 3DPO. I O'd later than expected this month, and BD wasn't timed as optimally as I'd like (last time 1.5 days before ovulation), so I don't have hugely high hopes for this month. *shrug* We decided to start OPKs next month  to get our timing a little better. Who knew it was so difficult? Lol.


Kristen: your cramps sound promising! Crossing my fingers that they were implantation cramps! You are so patient to wait until Saturday.


dennys: you have such a great attitude! FX that even if you didn't O, your body is getting back into it's natural rythm:)


adamsapple: so glad that the medication is working and your getting better! I'm sure it's a relief to just be able to concentrate on TTC.


Hope everyone has a lovely rest of the week!

Oh Rania!  I'm so sorry.... FX you'll get a BFN soon.  I've also been stressing but I know that I'm ready for when the time is ready for me.


Speaking of, last night after I wrote my post I went and got this...

that's a good idea.


i'm on cd18 and 4dpo. we bd'ed at the right time so from this angle we are good. however, we both believe that we didn't concieve this month. don't ask me why. yesterday i felt nauseous and dizzy. today is the same. but as i'm only 4dpo it is highly unlily that these could be any signs. i was determined to not test before 2/11 but as i am very impatient i might test on 9dpo... what would you do?


@adamsapple, yeah for the smilie!


@rania, sorry, rania, that you are stressing about it. i totally understand. holding my fx that you geht your bfp soon!


@ashley, sending baby dust your way!


@littlebit, are you temping? the temping and opks have helped me a lot to at least know that we bd at the right time.


@dennys, good attitude!


@kristen, how exciting. the cramps sound good :)

@ Rania: I'm so sorry that you're getting frustrated. I totally understand where you're coming from -- even though I know it usually takes normal healthy couples several cycles to conceive, I can't help but wonder and worry about why it hasn't happened yet for us. But it seems like you're doing a great job of trying to keep things in perspective and cultivating the right attitude:) FX that you won't have to wait anymore after this cycle!

@ adamsapple: YAY for that smiley face!

@ youandme: I do temp and chart, however that only tells me when I have ovulated for sure, not when I will. Last month I ovulated on CD16, so this time we tried BD every day starting CD 10. Big mistake. We were kinda sick of it after a week straight (never thought I would hear DH say that!) and tired after work, so we took a break. Then don't you know I ovulated on CD 18. That's why we bought the OPKs for next month. And I think we'll stick to every other day from now on. Lol. Sorry if that's TMI!

Hang in there, ladies!


As for me - I'm up 2-3 times a night with Mora and the puppies so there is absolutely no temping going on here.  I'm on CD 13 today and am feeling symptoms on my left ovary and will likely O in the next day or two.....it would really be great if we could get it done this month - if not, we are on to testing to see if this is a possibility without medical intervention....


@ littlebit07 - don't give up hope, some of those swimmers may have lived long enough!!!!!

Great idea on weekly updates. Love being able to see how everyone is coming along.


As for me I doubt I'll have much to say for some time, since I'm still in the just about ready to TTC but not quite yet stage (planning on TTC in July). I did have my yearly doctor's check-in. I told her DH and I are getting ready. At first she recomended that I come of BCP after this pack finished. But then I spoke to her about my constant headaches. She asked if I would like to try a nasal steriod spray. I decided I would give the spray a go and see if it works. But that means I need to stay on BCP until I get off the spray. I have my yearly OBGYN apt coming in March so I think I'll get off the steriods then and the BCP then. Only question I have about that is I wanted to get of BCP sooner rather than later so I have time to regulate my appointment and my BCP pack will finish at the end of March. I'm wondering if I should just finish my next pack which ends in a little over 3 weeks and stop the steriods end of Feb instead? Maybe I'll see if the steriod helps my headaches... Suggestions?


She also recomended taking prenatals or a mutli-vatamin. I have a ton of multi-vitamins left so I figured I'll finish those off and then make the switch to prenatals. I've also been working out a ton and eating healthy. I'd like to drop 10 pounds before TTC. I think I need to kick the coffee habbit too!
