For us this cycle we choose not to take opks, but based on cervical position and CM, I think I ovulated between the 3rd and 5th, so I'm in my tww. Not doing opks this cycle has been great! SOOO much less stressful for some reason! Here is hoping that we get our December baby! If not were looking at a 2014 baby!

Good luck, Ash! FX for you:)

I'm on CD4, so just waiting until next week to start my OPKs. Now that I know to use them in the afternoon, hopefully I'll have a bit more luck. Lol. I also accepted a new position at work, and will be learning lots of new things, so maybe that will take my mind off TTC a bit and we can make it happen this month! The hours are also much better for raising a little one than my current job, so maybe it's all starting to come together...

@ashle1738: It is so much stress..between temping and opks and CM...I think I might skip the OPKs next month too if I don't fall PG this cycle! Best of luck to you!! :)


@littlebit07: Congrats on your new work position! That's exciting! It should help as a distraction... :)


I am on CD9 today and will be starting my OPKs tomorrow! I finally took my temp this morning, after taking a break during AF and a couple days afterwards. I feel the stress coming on though....There hasn't been any BDing happening lately due to work stress and exhaustion. Now that I should be expecting to O this weekend, I feel the pressure coming on and it totally kills all the fun!

GL ladies!!


@Ashle--I can even sense the lowered stress levels, FX!!


@Ashley--FX for you too and congrats on the new position! Loving these positive stress free vibes this week.


@junebride-- Remember BDing is the best part. I know it's easier said than done but try to let everything go and remember that you enjoy it! ;) Have fun this weekend!!


I am CD 23. Expecting AF April 16. I'm getting anxious since it's my first cycle off BC. Seiously...I've never been anxious to get AF. I've been trying to pay attention to my body, but I have no idea if I O'ed. Remember before the wedding, all those wedding dreams that used to find their way into your sleep? Well my nights are consumed with baby dreams, July needs to come quicker!


Also something cute DH did--He was browsing the Chive last night and saw a picture of a woman doing a headstand and a todler playing curiously at her face. (If you don't know, I'm way into Yoga) Well he showed me and said he totally can see that being me with ours. DH has been slowly coming around the accepting the idea of a LO, my heart was smiled at this!

Freaking out right now.....

You guys know I have been exhausted because of the puppy. I finally reached my breaking point this weekend and slept pretty much all day Sunday after having dizzy spells on Saturday, negative HPT (9dpo). DH took me to urgent care on Saturday so I could rule out an inner ear infection (I've had one, but 15 years ago). The urgent care dr ruled out infection and every other test he took came up clean. He said that I'd likely get a BFP in the next few days.

I made a follow up appt with my general practitioner who is also an osteopath and had him do an adjustment. He said that my neck was out of alignment and with the pushing I've done just to function while I had the puppy, I have now goofed the little stone in my inner ear. It will probably correct in a week or so. This was 12 dpo and still BFN.

I had been feeling much better since I had gotten so much sleep on Sunday, but today I was barely able to function again. DH told me to take a nap when I was done with my clients. I laid down at 2 PM. He woke me when he got home at 3:30 and again at 5:30 when he left for his physical therapy appt.

I used the bathroom and on a whim I used an OPK. No idea why.....Ladies it's POSITIVE! I know from that site I posted on the other thread that an OPK doesn't come up positive for pregnancy unless you are already past the point when your HPT would be positive. except yesterdays's test with FMU was as negative as it could possibly be......I don't have any HPTs in the house. I don't want this to be a fluke =(

I also got the thing I ordered when I reveal my BFP to DH - ordered on a whim that I would get it this cycle but if I didn't then I'd have it already......it came today. I have to wait for tomorrow to get more tests!

I am posting from bed its 10:00 pm here. I am on orders from DH to get more sleep and he has been taking the puppy out in the middle of the night so I could catch up. 4 months is a long time to go without a full night of sleep when you are still working 40+ hours per week....I don't know how I'm going to sleep.. but I guess if I am pregnant then it won't be a problem here in a min!
