anna - that's great news for you. i bet u were never so happy to see af, huh ? have your cycles been regular since af showed up ? well, congrats ! i have been doing the bbt and it's really kind of fun. my husband laughs at me every morning when i'm half alseep with a thermomter in my mouth ! i just bought a cheap "vicks" thermometer. nothing fancy or specific. and it works. i had a perfect temp dip and rise right before ovulation ! it's actually sort of fun. my cm is super obvious around ovulation. can;t miss the ewcm so that's a nice sign. have you noticed that in past cycles ? i saw ewcm exactly 5 days before ovulation so if i was ttc that month, i would have known exactly when to start trying. hope the same happens this month ! no signs just yet. af just ended on monday. keep me posted for sure ! and i will do the same :-)

Kristina - thanks for the info. I didn't keep track of anything last month because I really didn't know if AF would come for sure or when. This month I'm keeping track of cm, etc. Not much cm yet which kind of worries me since it seems like I should ovulate this weekend. I guess we'll see! I think I'll get a thermometer and start keeping track of that next month (it would be nice if I wouldn't need to though!). I'll keep you posted and you do the same. It's so nice to have others to "talk" to about these things! Thanks again! :)

anna - i agree, i don't have much to report at all right now, but since i'm super excited and it occupies my brain, it's nice to chat about it here. not like you can talk about cm and such to just anyone ! haha. just so you know, i am only ovulating in the third week of my cycle (at least have been for past 2 cycles) rather than the normal 2nd week. first i thought i wasn't ovulating b/c i saw no signs and no positive opk test. but then week 3 came along and all the signs were there. so don't give up hope that you might just be ovulating later than the standard 12-14 days. i got my period exactly 14 days after i ovulated so i knew when to expect af. so maybe that's what's happening in your case ? good luck and i'll wish for lots of baby dust for both of us ! write back if and when you see signs :-)

does anyone ever feel like they get cramps before they ovulate?

anna - since nobody else wrote and i am at work not wanting to work for my last 8 minutes, thought i'd write and tell you that when i ovulated the last 2 times i had some serious ovulation pains. about the day before and the day of. mostly in my lower abdomin. ouch ! i've heard if you've not ovulated in a while, you may experience more intest ovulation pains. not sure how true that is, but made me feel better :-) right after i ovulated, pain went away ! i was also super constipated. sorry, tmi, but just thought i'd share. are you cramping at all ?

Kristina - I've had some "crampy" feelings today but I could just be overa___lyzing things as usual :) I guess you live in the Eastern time zone??? I'm in Alabama but I grew up in Florida. Keep me posted on how you are doing. For some reason I can't post responses on my computer at home - it says the page has expired . . . very frustrating! Anyway, I'll check back tomorrow.

hi, im not sure when im going to ovulate seeing as though this is my first month off bc. Also is it likely that my period will show up a completely different time than what it usually does when im taking my bc

good morning ! came in early to work, but couldn't help taking a break to write :-) anna, yup, i'm in pennsylvania. fun how you can talk with people all over the county or world for that matter ! louisa, this is my first month ttc too. are you busting with excitement ? i am. when i came off the pill 2 months ago, my cycle was a little longer, but everything went to normal otherwise, so hopefully you won't have to wait to long for ovulation. i would definitely recommend doing opk this month since you're not sure when you will ovulate. it was super helpful for me, plus kind of exciting to see the stick and know you are ovulating for sure ! i was worried after the pill and the opk made me feel great. especially since after the "typical" 12-14 day interval of ovulation past and nothing. then on week later, it happened. iad bad acne coming off the pill too. do you ? that was annoying. anyway, welcome. anyone having any signs ? nothing here :-) have a nice day and weekend !

Hi Becca, I'll wait with u, my AF should be around 13 or 14 Nov. We've ttc for 6 months now. Initially, I hope to be pregnant before our anniversary, it didn't happen, so I thought, well, give myself 2 more months, will make it as a birthday present for DH, also not happening! This month DH is getting anxious too coz we're been expatriated at the end of the year & if we can be pregnant by then, we'll certainly be ent_tled to an extra room for the baby (if not, we'll just be given a couple's apartment which is horrible coz we won't hv any baby room). In addition, we'll be seeing the whole family at X'mas & really wish to be able to announce good news to all of them at the same time! (Will be such an exciting X'mas I think). Anyway, I'm glad that I started charting my BBT, as before I thought as I've my period right on dot every month & with a very common 27 or 28 days cycle, I should also ovulate very "normally " at mid-cycle & have a LP of the most common 14 days. Boy, am I wrong, only last month that I realized that I only O on CD 16, giving me only LP of 11 days!! Am getting really concern since I read that any LP less than 11 days is kinda called DLP or something like that. To ensure I won't miss my O day, we're trying to BD everyday or at least every other day beginning this week. We really want to hv a baby this month, so good luck & baby dust, baby dust, on us all!!!

i was actually put on the pill because of bad acne. So me coming off the pill may bring my acne back, im hoping that it doesnt tho. I am rather excited,

Good morning! I've been busy this morning at work but now I finally have a break to "chat" for a minute. Kristina - it really is neat to have the opportunity to talk to others all over the country! I am so excited - I really hope this is the month. Initially my husband was suppose to be out of town all next week so I was really bummed about our chances this month, but he found out yesterday the trip was cancelled and he'll be here all week! I at least want a shot each month :) Anyone else having any symptoms??? I better get back to work! :)
