Not too much to report here. I'm CD20 and possibly 3DPO (since I'm not temping yet, it's tough to know for sure.  We didn't BD as much as I would have liked, but crossing my fingers still. I never really understood how long the 2WW could feel until now.

I've been debating temping more and more. Thinking if no BFP after our 3rd cycle that I'll start.

This is my first cycle off Nuvaring so I'm CD20 but not entirely sure where everything else sits as my body tries to get back to normal. I started temping this month too to try and really get to know my own schedule without the hormones. ...But being a shift worker it's been impossible to accurately temp, so we'll see what I wind up with! I have to say though I feel SO GOOD being off BC!!

Hope you ladies are all doing well!

@Nicole - GL and FX for a BFP! Yes, the TWW is the hardest thing ever... worse than waiting to O IMO. And honestly, I would recommend temping ASAP. I only didn't temp for two months in the middle of my TTC journey, and that made me stress out more because I wasn't confident I ovulated. @Alycia - GL to you as well! So glad to hear you are feeling well of BC!! :) FX for a short TTC journey for you :) AFM - I had my progesterone blood draw on Monday and heard back from my RE's office on Tuesday that my numbers show I ovulated, which is good of course :) I am now at 12 DPO and not sure where I stand. I started to get spotting yesterday (dark brown) and thought I was getting cramps so I was discouraged. AF still hasn't showed but still spotting dark brown and pink and only enough to wipe, not enough on my underwear (sorry TMI). SOOO I'm going to test tomorrow but not get my hopes up of course! I normally only have a half day of spotting and then a full blown period, so this is a little unusual but I've learned not to get too excited ;)

 @Nicole: the 2WW is the worst, right?! It seems like forever. I hope you get your BFP this cycle and don't have to worry about temping, but if you do decide to take that route, have fun with it. It's kinda neat to see how your chart shapes up every month, and you learn a lot about your body! 

@alycia: yay for your first cycle off BC! Best of luck to you and DH, I hope it happens quickly for you:)

@kristen: FX that your unusual spotting is a good sign! But I know what you mean about getting your hopes up...

AFM, I'm on CD13, 1DPO. I've never ovulated on cycle day 12 before, that's early for me. But I've been taking my B6 faithfully everyday and since we took a few months off from temping etc., I'm not sure what effect that's been having on my cycle. Hopefully it's a good sign and my LP will be a bit longer. This is cycle #12 for us, so I'm praying that this is it, and we won't have to have any medical intervention. But I also know that God has a plan for us, and whatever will be will be. This whole process has been the best lesson in patience and humility, and I really believe that whatever happens, DH and I have been blessed by it:)

Quick Update - AF came today. I was hopeful because I ovulated on CD15, and had a longer LP but ultimately a 28 day cycle which is short for me. BUT - I will be having two big RE appts this month now - and SA for DH. :( The ultrasound stuff and the Dye test. I'm nervous, but also oddly at peace. I know God has a plan for us, and he laid being parents on our hearts for a reason. Any vibes/prayers you could spare would be appreciated :) @Littlebit - FX for you hon!!! Stay positive!! :)
