Here's the new thread for those of us who got AF this month and are out of the running... oh well, guess we'll just have to have lots of fun ttc!!!!

 

Chas - August 29

Sounds good Gigi !! I am now on cd3, maybe ovulating around cd9, can't wait to start baby dancing !

 

Gigi - August 29

Welcome back Chas! And a very fruitful month to you! What's the first day of your cycle and when is your next AF due?

 

Gigi - August 29

Sue and Krista, will you be joining us this month too?

 

Chas - August 29

First day was 8/27, so I guess Af will be due again around 9/25. Ready for O!

 

Gigi - August 29

Hi again Chas! The first day of my cycle is today, and since it's usually about 26 days long, my next AF (NOT!) should be 9/24, not 9/26 like I posted, although I sometimes have a 28-day cycle, so it could fall on any of those days. But this month I'll follow Deb and Mel's example and chart my temps PLUS buy an OPK to be sure to hit O this month... you're doing all of that already right?

 

Chas - August 29

yes Gigi, I started charting temp last month. Of course, it only tells you when O was after the fact.. but it's still very helpful in planning for the next month! I'm still going to get a opk also and try that to see if it correlates with temp. I know what you mean... my cycle was 30 days last month and now it came in 25....Is this the first month you will chart temp ? I forgot how long have you been ttc ?

Hello ladies, I would like to join, or maybe not. Im mad and disappointed with af showing her face. I don't know why I'm feeling really frustrated with ttc and really dont want to be disappointed again. This will be my third month ttc. However, im starting to get really nervous, because i had a D&C last March, i had a blighted ovum. Prior to that D&C my doctor told me that i was extremely fertile and that conceiving again shouldn't be a problem. Well a year pa__sed by and i wasn't really trying, but was having unprotected s_x and nothing happen. Now for the last 3 months we have been trying. Plus he doesn't have any children. I have three from my prior marriage, and had one miscarriage. I o on the 10th and bd on the 9,10, 11, and the 12. I had all the symptoms and i really thought i was pregnant. i know i bd on the right days, could it be that i was uptight and nervous or what? i started to spot on the 26th and been spotty every since then. i took 3 hpt's and they were all BFN!!! I haven't been charting just because i know when i o. i always have extremely bad pains, and the doc did an ultrasound and said that i was ovulating. Now im hoping that 3's a charm, and that i will finely have my BFP!!!!!!! However what can i do to help with ttc. My next af is due around the 26th, let's wait together. sorry girls i was just exhaling.

Hi Chas, and welcome Angie! Chas, this will be my 3rd month ttc. I figure I may have waited too late to do the deed with DH last month figuring I would be in the "percentile" of women who "o" right around the middle of their cycle, according to the ovulation calendars, but I don't think that was precise enough, so this month will be my first temping with a bbt - will you help with my silly questions LOL? Hopefully, I won't have to do all of this all month just to get it all down for the following minth because I'm getting impatient just like you Angie! I was sooooooooooo thinking I was pregnant with lower back pain, nausea and even zits - goes to show that when you really want something the mind can really play tricks on you! Angie, you hang in there! When you REALLY want something, and what is more important than a new life growing inside of you, a whole new person to ,love your whole life long, you WILL SUCCEED, with some patience (I know, this is also my 3rd month ttc, but many women try for many more months and even years!!!), and your doctor said you are very fertile (you already have 3 children right?) - You know I just thought of something.... since you had 3 with a prior DH, has your newer guy ever had himself checked? You said he doesn't have any prior children? It could be him, and not you! (Not to point fingers...) Also, from what I have read if you O on the 10th for example, you would want to bd starting around the 7th (because you want spermies right there waiting when you o - they live up to 5 days) up through the 11th because our eggs only live about 24 hours - is that about right Chas? I really want to get all of this down PAT for this month! We can do it if we help each other and become more and more knowledgable right? Let's GO GIRLS! BABY DUST THIS MONTH! (i just sounded a little too much like a motivational speaker there LOL)

 

Chas - August 30

Of course I will help you with any questions you have about bbt Gigi ! I Think I'm going to start my opk tomorrow or thurs. I ovulate early... so hopefully I will get a pos opk and start the bd'ing ! I guess I need to tell dh to get ready !!

 

Chas - August 30

BTW.. this will be the 10th month TTC !!!

 

Gigi - August 30

You found it Sue - I bumped it up for ya!

 

Liz - August 30

Alright! I'm in! AF arrived this morning. This was my first month ttc. What a roller coaster of emotions... would anyone here consider 11 to 12 day luteal phases short?

 

Sue - August 30

Thanks for the bump, GiGi...I am here for the running...started AF 8/28 with spotting for a couple of days before that...so...here we go!

 

Gigi - August 30

Sorry to see you here Sue ;-) I mean glad to be in the running with you this month LOL! Too bad about your AF showing, I still had hope for you... Liz, welcome also! And no, from what I've heard a luteal phase can me anywhere from 10 to 18 days long or so, so that sounds normal... BFP's to all of us this mionth and lots of fun ttc and bd-ing!!!!

 

Amy - August 30

Thanks for the invite over here Chas. I too should have no af around the 26th or so. This will be my 3rd month of ttc. It is the first month I am charting my bbt and also got OPK. Hopefully I get it on this time. For those of you that have ttc for a while, I don't know how you do it. I was really down when af showed up in August, and that was only the 2nd month. Baby dust to everyone and have fun bding!!
