Weekly Check-in ~ July 2nd

Happy holiday week!  Yesterday was Canada today and the 4th of July is just around the corner :-)  How is everyone?


We're having a heat wave this week, so I'm not sure how cool the boys are.  I really think we're in for a long haul to get a BFP so I'm not going to be POAS after 10DPO or doing the TWW.  I figure if I have the longest LP I've ever had I'll test, otherwise I won't be busting out the HPT's.  However, I'd be lying if I didn't say it's still on my mind that it is a possibility.

hi ladies!


I'm here in northern CA and we've been having a terrible heat way. Summers here are usually in the 80's-low 90's and it been 100+ since saturday. And I work in an un-air-conditioned office. BOO!


I'm in the TWW now (3DPO). I'm expecting AF next fri/sat and not going to test unless she's late. I'm just so dang tired all the time but I'm attributing that to the heat and the fact that I've officially given up caffeine. As a fromer barista, its killing me.


@Athena: haven't heard when you're talking about, but I will admit to also doing the pillow thing :)


Also started taking B6 yesterday thanks to you lovely ladies advice, so we'll see how it goes! My new BBT came yesterday and I'm not taking it out of the package until my next cycle starts. Wishful thinking?

Guess it is a country wide thing. I'm in the desert in Ca and it had reached about 117 so far and is regularly above 110. Part of the reason I work nights and sleep through all that heat. Thank God for air conditioning.
I am currently on CD 15 and waiting to O. Should happen thursday or friday but we'll see.

Funny enough, its the rainy season over here in Nigeria, so its all rainy, cold and wet. Fortunately, we ve passed the tropical thunderstorm period, so its just rain, no wind.


Im on CD15, 1dpo. I have to say that Im upbeat about this cycle; Its my 4th cycle since I went off BC and I can say with certainty that my cycle is back to normal. I was worried last month that AF showed up for 2months, but no signs of O'ing, not even with the OPKs I was using. Seeing that on a normal day, Im a regular as clockwork with all the physical signs of ovulation showing clearly, it was most distressing to me that I could not detect anything. Anyways this time, I got OPKs,preseed, the works, determined to get it right this time.


Turns out I didnt need the preseed afterall, by CD10, I started seeing all the normal signs( EWCM and my cervix was getting softer and opening up). By CD12 I was sure I would be ovulating as normal on CD14, and sure as rain, my opks read positive on CD13, and I woke up on CD14 with serious lower abdominal mittelschmerz aches!


Suffice it so say that DH and I have been seriously busy since CD12, night and morning. Well, Im very easily aroused this time of the month, so it wasnt too difficult for me. And now we wait...


Im so excited to be back to normal, and I have such high hopes for this cycle. I know I have like a 30% chance of conception, but a girl can hope, right?

hi ladies! it's been a while!

Back in February, I was extremely late, had a faint positive and then several negatives. In March, I had a super heavy AF, then nothing in April, then seemingly back to normal in May. Sadly, after talking to some old PW mommas, I think that we had an early miscarriage back in Feb/March.

But for the first time in a few months, I started tracking again and I'm on CD20, 4DPO. Yesterday I had cramping and spotting last night. It's seemingly too early for IB, so I don't think there's anything to think about it.

FF wants me to wait until CD35 to test b/c of my irregular cycles. I can't wait 15 more days!


If it doesn't happen this cycle, I'm going to seek some medical advice to figure out what's going on.

Babydust to everyone!
