Hi everyone I'm Jess. I'm coming over here from the August DDC; I found out at 9w3d that I had a blighted ovum so that Friday (Jan 8th) I was given a medication to cause me to miscarry which I did throughout the weekend. So now I'm trying to get back in the swing of things and I've decided that this time around I'm going to chart! I'm starting mid cycle (counting the miscarriage as a period) just to get the hang of it. Then I'll start for real next cycle. I'm really excited! Got my bbt today and I'm pumped to use it!!

Oh and I had a TTC journal before but I wanted a fresh start and decided to start a new one! So DH (Ben, 26) and I (25) have been married since June of 2008. We have three furbabies that we spoil to death!! Hmm... what else? We've been TTC since May/June of last year... I went off the pill in May, can't remember if it was the beginning or the end but doesn't really matter. We did the natural cycles for awhile, hoping that BD'ing would be enough. While it was when we conceived, I just don't think I can be as patient this time around. Well I obviously HAVE to be patient, but I want to do all that I can to pinpoint ovulation this time. Last time we went months where we did it everyday for like a week and a half, from a month where we just did it every other day for the whole cycle. The month we got pregnant was actually the month we BD'd the least and it was only like every 5 days or so. Who knows?!?!?? Ok well any other questions just ask!!

I am so sorry for your loss. I hope your body will regulate itself quickly and you can get the hang of things, as far as temping goes and what not. I am Jessica (23) and DH is Nick (27) we are on our 3rd cycle. I look forward to getting to know you throughout your journey, though I hope it is nice and short.

Hey Kate, yea i'm think they're going to be screwy because today I was 96.8!! so we'll see what happens!! I'm just hoping that AF comes within a normal time period and doesn't wait like 2 months to show up!

Thank Nayomi and you know I'm always rooting for you 2!!

Thanks Nikki, Lex and Jessica!! I'm excited to be back but hoping I don't stay too long! Same for all of you of course! Let's just all get a 2010 baby because 2011 just seems soooo far away!!

So my temp was super low again today and I don't know if it's from the m/c or because again the dogs woke me up this morning! Last night, just like the night before, I woke up at 3 and had to use the bathroom and get the dogs some water... well that's annoying because I have been setting my alarm for 6:40 to temp and when I see that it's already 3 I feel pressure to fall asleep immediately so I get that 3 hour block of sleep in! Then of course I get restless anyway so wth??! lol I'm sure I'll get the hang of it tho! Ugh so yesterday on FB i wrote something about almost being done with school and DH's cousin comment, "hows your belly doing". It doesn't really bother me like it would have during the first week, I just feel bad because I know she is going to feel bad once I tell her that I lost the baby. Of course I private messaged her but I thought the news got around his side of the family already seeing as though poeple were sending us flowers the next day!! Trust me when I say I will be waiting until the 2nd trimester next time. I know it was hard waiting 8 weeks the first time, but geez I don't want to have to do this telling people thing again!! Well that's all for now! hope everyone has a great day!!

Today was DH and mine day together... we both get out at 2 which is soo great because we both work late the beginning of the week. However, today I was in a serious funk today tho and I have no idea why... I was not being nice to DH, not that I was being mean, but I was just ignoring him pretty much. Eventually I realized I was being ridiculous and wanted to enjoy our day together so I dropped the attitude and we had a good day. I'm thinking maybe I got in my funk because my preggo neighbor that I mentioned, had written something on facebook about maternity stores so that may have upset me. I know it's so dumb to be resentful towards her its just that whenever I see her writing about her pregnancy I start thinking about me going through that same thing because I was due a week before her. So when she posted a youtube video of the heartbeat on her own doppler, well.... lets just say I wasn't overjoyed! ahhhh welll... i'm learning to cope!

Hi Jess - I'm Judy (30). I'm sorry about your loss! And I hope you don't have to be with us too long!
DH (also 30) and I are on our 4th cycle TTC.

That's gotta be very tough with a preggo neighbour..

I look forward to getting to know you and following your chart!

Ugh. I hear ya on that... Luckily I don't have any preggo neighbors, that I know of. We've all been pretty much locked up in our houses since the weather turned... so you never know! But our entire neighborhood is families with little ones... especially the two families right across the street from us. They have little ones that play together in their yards in the summer and it's just a little tough at times.

Another reason to hope you get to move on to the Grads real soon!!

Hello! Glad you have decided to temp. I love it- I feel it gives me a little control over things which makes me feel a little bit better since TTC is totally NOT in your control.

I have to say I am totally perplexed to stories like yours where you said you got pregs on the month where you DTD the LEAST amount of times. AHHH!!! We were crazy people at first, BDing like every single day for 2 weeks straight. Now, since temping, we taken a much more laid back approach, but still, it's hard for me to accept the fact that it either happens or it doesn't, ya know? I feel like the harder and better I try, the better my chances will be, but then your story refutes that theory!

Anywho, I also wanted to say that it must be incredible difficult situation to deal with babies and pregnancies and comments after your loss. I can't even imagine. But I hope that you get your BFP soon! If you ever have any questions about tempting, I am not an expert, but would love to try and help!!! GL!!

Hey Chrissy- I hope you are getting your BFP very soon as well!!!

Jess (there's a lot of us on here right now!!)- thanks stopping by! I'm very excited to be temping since I didn't do that for the first 6 months. If I hadn't gotten my bfp I would have started that next month... but now I figured I would start right away. You are so right that it gives you at least a FEELING of control by temping. We'll see what happens tho!!

Well it's the weekend, thank god!!! DH is planning on building shelves in our next closet but the problem with that is, I've never seen him do anything handy in the entire time we've been together so this should get interesting. I've got some homework to do this weekend and some painting to do upstairs but other than that I'm ready to relax and enjoy the weekend. Also I cannot wait for Tuesday because LOST starts!!!!!!!! I love LOST!!!! Anyone else watch it?! I just finished rewatching the 5th season last weekend so I can be nice and refreshed for the last season!

I don't know what to think about my temp (1) because i just started temping so i literally have no clue! lol and (2) because I started temping like 3 weeks after my m/c... so I don't know if i'll even ovulate or what will happen!? I'm basically just trying to get into the habit of temping and analyzing my temp before the real cycles start. Hope everyone is having a grrrreat weekend!!

HI Jess,
It's great that you've started temping.. it can really help you learn about your body, and to help you with timing once you start seeing patterns. I'm also no expert, but feel free to ask me questions.

Hi Jess! I just wanted to say hi and introduce myself. I'm Christine (28) and I've been off BCP for 4 months, and this is my 3rd cycle TTC. I started temping the 2nd month and I really like doing it. It does take a little time to get in the habit of it, but its so easy once you do.

I am also part of the group testing on 2/7, though I will only be 9 or 10DPO Glad you'll be testing with us.

Oh and by the way I love the show Lost! I can't believe this is the last season, I can't wait to see how this season starts and then how they end it.

Have a nice weekend! Hope you get to relax!
