well i'm CD 17 right now and I have no idea if i've O'ed yet because I don't chart or temp or do OPK's or anything! But i've been BDing like my life depends on it so as long as I O at some point this cycle I'll know that I did everything I could. AF started on 10/6 and since then we've BD on 10/9, 10/10, 10/13, 10/15, 10/18, twice on 10/19, and 10/21. That would be CD 4,5,8,10,13,14,14,16. So that's pretty good right??!I plan to keep on going until AF comes that way i know I won't miss the O. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. PS i HATE waiting

Hello everyone! Nothing too exciting to report... still hanging in there and just waiting to see what happens. So yesterday DH and I went to a friends house because he had his little 3 month old daughter Rylee there! I didn't think DH really even wanted to come with but he did because I asked him to and he ended up being so cute with Rylee. First of all he asked, on his own!, to hold her! And then when I wash holding her he kept rubbing her head and her hand. He was just too cute. I can't wait until it's our little baby that he's holding in his arms!! Well that's pretty much it for now. I'll update with BD dates and any symptoms I might cook up in my head lol!!! TGIF!!!!

haha i'm not to sure how this whole site works so I don't know if i'm in the other one still! I had an admin move me here, I saw that you have journals here and in general it seems like people post more here so I figured i'd go where the action is!

Well it's CD 21 and I just want next week to be here already!!! Since I haven't started charting or anything yet I was using the online ovulation predictors for awhile but that wasn't working so I decided we would just BD every other day for the entire cycle, that way it doesn't matter when I O because hopefully I will have BD'ed in time. I have no idea when I may have O'ed or if I even did but it's only CD 21 and my bbs are feeling sore. Usually my bbs aren't affected by AF at all, just the nipples (sorry tmi) so this is different from ususal. And I have been peeing a lot more than normal, although I get up at least once or twice a night to pee anyway... but last night was 3 times. And friday night i was ridiculously gassy! tmi again! lol. so hopefully i'm not just making these symptoms up in my head! I don't plan on testing until AF is late, but I say that a lot so we'll see. It's just that I always end up wasting soo many tests by testing too soon! Plus it always gets me a little bit down when I see that BFN, even when I know it's probably too early to get one. I'm starting to think that maybe i'll start temping and charting soon. God, i hope it's not complicated because otherwise I know i'll slack! Anyone have any advice on thermometers or a good strategy at all??? I know nothing about temping! I mean, do you insert the temp into yourself?!?!? or take it like a regular temp??? see!! i'm clueless and now embarrassed! hahhahah lord help me. Hope everyone has a great week!

CD22. bbs were more sore than before last night but this morning they seem to be okay. Not sure what that means but I'll try not to look too much into it. I hate getting myself worked up and then being let down when I see that BFN. Plus I get all excited every month so I must be making symptoms up in my head! lol I can't believe that you spend so much of your early years trying NOT to get pregnant only to find out it's actually really hard to get pregnant!

Looks like you've done everything you can to catch that egg. My fingers are crossed for you. From what I've read, it looks like you have shorter cycles (usually), so it's totally possible that you often ovulate earlier than you might think. So it's really great that you started with the BD-ing right after AF.

I really really hope this is your month.

Well it's CD 25 and I'm dying to test! I plan on testing on Sunday the 1st. Although I may not be able to contain myself from POAS if I get some tests before then. I hate how excited I get towards the end of my cycle just to be let down each time! Sooo frustrating. I can't believe TTC isn't easier! Just look at mama Duggar! She pops one out every year and a half for crying out loud! I only want one for now! That's all I'm asking! lol Oh well, I'll get my sticky bean when God thinks i'm ready i guess!

Thanks Chrissy! So I woke up to a very confusing situation this morning. I'm only CD 26 and I was spotting this morning... lately my cycle has been getting longer and now this spotting is coming 2 days before my 'normal' cycle. I was 28 days all throughout birth control obviously, but even for the 3 months after I got off I was still going 28 days exactly. Then it went to 29 days, last month was 32, and now I might be having a 26 day month? What does this mean??? Does this mean I'm out of the running this month? I was planning on testing tomorrow morning but if this keeps up I guess I won't have to? I think I'll schedule myself for a PAP because I'm a due anyway and then ask the doc about it. Anyone else ever have this kind of thing go on? Ughhh i was really hopeful for this month too!

no i haven't been doing that. I don't even know where to start with that... but I am thinking now that AF seems to be making her appearance, i'm thinking i might start.


Any advice on temping? I'm new to it and have no idea what i'm doing!! I'm pretty sure AF is slowly making her way here... it's more than spotting but not quite a full blown AF. Ughhh 26 days!? last month was 32! what is going on here?

ugh so i've been MIA for awhile because after AF showed so early and it got me down for a bit. At least i didn't waste any tests i guess.. always good to find a bright side! Well i'm CD 9 right now and we've BD on 11/4 and 11/8 so far... got to get back to BDing every other day but DH is sick soooo that's that for now. Hopefully tomorrow we can get back on track! Well i'm about to stalk some journals and i'm hoping to see some bfp's!!
