Brooke's TTC #5 after 4 boys!
Hello all,
I am currently 4dpo and going to begin testing every day this month to see how early I can get a BFP.
I have tests I bought from the internet and I am pretty sure they are 25miu...
I have four (!) boys and this will definately be our last child.
Anyone else out there around the same and willing to keep me company during this TWW??!

This is my first month TTC after breastfeeding my last baby. I have been charting temps and CM on FF, not sure how to put up a link to my chart?
Will be on regularly........

Re: Brooke's TTC #5 after 4 boys!
On my FF chart I had my implantation dip at 7dpo, temp is back up again today. this mornings test was bfn as well. (8dpo)
I have been feeling pretty much the same as normal, only a heavy feeling in the lower abdomen. no other symptoms.
Looking forward to tomorrow morning!

Re: Brooke's TTC #5 after 4 boys!
9 dpo- bfn on test this am, theres not even a hint of a line. My temp is sitting just above coverline. I've been having sticky globs CM and feeling a bit like AF is coming. I think I'll test tomorrow morning and evening if AF still hasn't arrived.
I found out today the my hpt's are in fact 15 mIU's.
It's cycle day 42 so I'm getting kinda bummed out, this month has taken so long and I have never had such a long cycle and ovulated so late.

Re: Brooke's TTC #5 after 4 boys!
BFN this morning with FRER. I had pink stained CM when I wiped yesterday so I am thinking I'm prob not pregnant and AF is on her way.

Temp went up though so maybe still in with a chance. Let me know what you think.

Good morning everyone,

Well I woke at 4am drenched by AF. So I am out for this month. My temp dropped this morning too. Bring on the next month of ttc. I hope I don't ovulate as late as CD33 this time.

Re: Brooke's TTC #5 after 4 boys!

Hi Brookelyn Im new here just found this site today and I think were in the same boat I also have 4 boys 3 of my own and a step son, good luck with your TTC

Re: Brooke's TTC #5 after 4 boys!
Hi MrsLara, thanks for stopping by. fingers crossed we get our BFP soon.

Well today is CD8, not a lot happening. AF left right after my last post, which was interesting as my last cycle she was here for 8 days. So I think I may be in for a shorter cycle this month which is great. I am really having trouble with the saliva microscope and kinda just get a blurry image everytime, despite trying to focus. I will retry it tonight and hopefully be able to see something that looks a little like the pictures on the packaging.
I have been reading blogs the last couple of days and I am in awe of the women (and their partners) who under go IVF. What a journey some people have been through to produce a little miracle. My hat comes off to them.
I would like to vent something, I really don't like it when people ask 'whens the next one coming' or '4 boys, wow you'll need to try for a girl!' I really struggle to come up with responses that dont give away that we actually ARE trying. Usually I rub my stomach and say 'yes, we are due at christmas, didnt you know?!' or 'knowing my luck we would end up with twin boys' something funny to change the subject. I try to not deny the fact we are TTC, and DH always says 'No, were not having anymore' and he is clearly lying. What a lovely dysfunctional relationship we have...!
All going well, I should ovulate a week before xmas and be testing before new year so I'll know if I can have a few drinks or not!

Re: Brooke's TTC #5 after 4 boys!
CD 14, Eggwhite CM and temp still low. BD this morning. I also have twinges on my right side. I attempted to use the saliva microscope this morning and got strong ferning!Yay! feel so positive, I think this is it!

brookelynn December 16th, 2010 03:57 PM

Re: Brooke's TTC #5 after 4 boys!
Hi All!
CD 15 and I have a slightly bloated feeling in my lower abdomen, the twinges only lasted a couple of hours yesterday. BBT shot back up this morning as well. We have only BD once yesterday but I'm pretty sure we caught the egg. So now for the TWW!

Re: Brooke's TTC #5 after 4 boys!
Quick update:
5dpo, might start testing after christmas.
Fingers crossed!

brookelynn December 29th, 2010 05:01 PM

Re: Brooke's TTC #5 after 4 boys!
I began testing from the 27th (7dpo).
To be honest I didnt feel any different, didnt even feel like AF was coming.
9dpo- BFN with slight cramping. I was knicker checking all day, I swear I was getting AF.
10dpo-BFN no AF though. My usual LP is 10-11 days. Cramping vanished and feeling nothing.
11dpo(today)- temp spike. Definate faint line on HPT!
Trying not to get too excited. will test again tonight or maybe tomorrow morning. Dont think I'll tell DH yet just in case I am imagining the line.
