To create a Blinkie or even a signature, the very first thing you need to do is create a phote bucket account.

This is just my opinion....but I say trash the answer tests! I tested three cycles with them (strips and applicators) and never got a clear positive. I started asking around and a lot of other people had the same results. People recommended ClearBlue Easy or First Response to me. I will be using both this month since I will be doing my first ICI at the end of the month.


Are you tracking/charting your waking temperature? If not, you should. Your temp will jump up around 6/10's of a degree right after you ovulate. Which does you no good if you already missed your window for the current month, but it will verify that you did ovulate so you can stop peeing on sticks every day. And it helps with planning for the next month.


You should also be tracking your cervical mucus (cm). This is really one of the best fertility indicators. About a week and a half ago someone on this board suggested that I read, "Taking Charge of Your Fertility," by Toni Weschler. I picked it up at the bookstore right away and it was the best decision I have made so far. The book is an all incompassing guide to your fertility, fertility tracking, ovulation and all the mysteries of the female body. I had no idea how much I didn't know about my own body. And I am now so much more confident about doing ICI at home and accurately predicting my ovulation on my own. You should definately read it as soon as possible.


I hope this helps! Wishing you lots of baby dust!

Missi - ya know, with the "right" doctor you could do a monitored cycle through your insurance...because endo IS a medical condition.

So you need u/s to see why it "hurts" on certain cd's...

LOL

I don't know much about temping, but good luck!

Okay, so I went to the ticker factory and created a ticker. I copied and pasted the code into my signature box below where I put the "mommy wannabe" blinkie. I tried all the different versions of the code, but none of them will show up. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong??? Thanks.
