Morning!  Spring has finally arrived where I live (28C today, ~ 83F), which is amazing considering the snow we had (and shoveled!) last week.


I'm CD 19 and super excited because....I O'd 7 days earlier than my last two cycles (this is my third off BCP).  I'm thinking this is a good sign I'll have shorter cycles, and not the 2 long ones I've just had. 


It's just funny though because in July we're going to Vegas, then the weekend after that we'll be out of town.  Based on my long cycles one of those weekends would have been a fertile weekend and we thought how perfect for starting to TTC (being away from "life").  And now with the possibly shorter cycles I'm now having it may not work out that way.  Oh well, wait and see how things go.  I just always hear married mom's say that TTC while out of town is the best way to get PG.  It just isn't feasible to book a hotel every time we approach the O day.  LOL!

@Athena - Glad to hear you O'd earlier and hopefully it means not such long cycles!! And wouldn't that be nice to be out of town everytime you O?? LOL ;)


@October - hang in there hon!! You can wait!!! ;) Everything crossed for a BIG BFP for you!! :)


 


Well.... I'm calling it an saying I'm CD1 of cycle#9.... and I'm not going to lie every cycle is truly testing my spirit and my faith. I know God will bless us when he's ready and when he knows we're ready... but DANG am I tired of waiting. BUT - I won't complain. I am blessed to even be trying and as far as I know everything is fine with us... it's just not our time. I'm going all out times 100000. Going to do castor oil packs this round, going to start temping again... and sincerely going to try to cut out ALL caffeine and start drinking red raspberry leaf tea :)

@Athena: Wow, that is a crazy temp change! Good luck baby making on your out of town trips! Even if the timing isn't perfect, the practice will still be fun;)

@October: The waiting is so hard, but you can do it!!!! I so hope this is finally it for you.

@Kristen: I'm so sorry this wasn't your month. I feel the exact same way that you do. FX for some February babies for us;)

I'm on CD 5, and starting my OPKs on Friday. Today was the first day of my new job, so I'm hoping that the enormous decrease in stress and the distraction of learning something new will be just what I need to make it happen this month.

Hello all, i'm a little late to check in but have been pretty busy.
@ Kristen: you have such an amazing outlook on life, I love your positive attitude. That's always been the hardest part for me.

I am now on CD 18, of my second cycle on clomid. I got a positive opk and all the physical signs of impending O on Sunday (cd14). But have not had a temp rise yet. This has happened almost every month where it takes a few days after I think i'm going to O for my temp to rise. Af usually shows 14 days after the physical signs. Anyone else experience anything like this? Going in this Sunday for a progesterone level to make sure I am ovulating strong enough. Kind of worried cus I think that may have had a role in my m/c. My level then was only 1.8...This cycle I am trying to stay relaxed and not focus so much on ttc. DH and I have been taking lots of day trips. We are heading to laughlin for the weekend so that should be fun

I'm totally late on this.


Kristen, I'm always in awe at your patience and positivity, it WILL happen for you, don't lose faith! xxx


CD 25 for me. I haven't been the greatest at taking my prenatal lately, I really really need to get back in the game with that. Otherwise things are normal, AF due to arrive soon. We'll see if she is on time like last month.
