Just got back into town, DH hid my BBT thermometer because he said it wasn't healthy to obsess over my temperature every day. I must say though, he has a point, since I knew I didn't have my thermometer next to my bed while I was falling asleep last night, I didn't wake up at all last night like I have been and I slept completely through the night (although it's driving me CRAZY that I don't know what my temp was this morning. lol).

Hey girl!!

I am glad ur back in town! I am on my way back home now after my half marathon. All went well and I made it!!! Yeah!!

Back to ttc obsessive compulsive disorder!! Lol

Your DH is right, I think you are hindering ur chances by being so crazy about this temp. I am not charting my temps nor am I using the fertility friend. I downloaded a cycle calendar on my i-pod and I use the opks. To be honest that is enough obsession for me. So u need to listen to DH and follow his recommendations.

When r u going to test again?? What CD r u on now? I am supposed to get my AF on Saturday but I have no symptoms of pregnancy or AF! So we will see how it goes. I am tempted to test tomorrow morning :p but I may not. We will see.

Congrats on your half marathon, that must have felt great to finish that!! I do good to do a mile on a work out video!! haha.

I have no idea what 'dpo' I am on. FF kept changing it and my temps haven't been that accurate because of my restlessness/anxiousness at night, but I'm guessing I O'ed on or around CD17.

I am on CD31 and I have been having very light brown spotting today and yesterday, but no full on AF yet, but I will probably start tonight or tomorrow (unless by some miracle I ovulated a lot later and this is implantation bleeding, but that's just wishful thinking. lol)

If AF doesn't find me tonight or tomorrow (which is highly doubtful), I will test Friday or Saturday. But ultimately, I usually spot 2 days before AF arrives, so she's probably about to knock on my door any hour now. :smileysad:

Af is due on sept 10th. I caved and took a test (frer) yesterday and it came back neg. I'm still a little hopeful bc this was our 1st month using opks and I got positives two days in a row and bd accordingly. Should I test again, wait for af?????
Ahhhhh! I never should have tested yesterday!!

Yes hohowife its a great accomplishment and its my second. I do it to raise funds for the leukemia and lymphoma society.

About ur AF! I hope u don't get it and its the bean inplanting. I will wait until saturday to test cause I think its too early for me.

If we r not on to the next cycle and I will try to relax more and less ocd about ttc!

That is so great, and what a wonderful cause!!

The brown spotting continues tonight......so AF should be here in the morning. /sigh

I agree with you, I am definitely going to try and be less OCD about TTC this month. I am not charting this month or anything---it was interrupting my sleep by me thinking about having to get up and temp and stressing me out.

I am just going to BD every other day (and not like this month when we BD-ed every day for 15 days straight---yikes!) starting at CD10 through CD20

Thank u!!

I took a test this morning and it was negative. But that's okay cause I am like 7DPO I think.

I think ur plan for this next cycle will bring u great results. How long have u been ttc?

Anyways, I am still hopeful but if its not the right time God knows why and I will keep trying until he blesses me.

Hi Lola, this is mine and my DH's very first month of trying (my name is Rebekah btw for future reference. lol :smileyhappy:). We've been married over 15 months now. I have however been BBT charting for the past year in addition to condoms to "prevent" and to know when my periods are due to make plans for things-- it comes in very handy. However, BBT was fine and dandy when we weren't TTC, but this month when we were, I had it in the back of my mind that I had to "stay asleep" to get an accurate temp, but that really messed it up and I began waking like every night, so I have decided to discontiue the use of BBT and just BD every other day.

This is my 3rd day of very light brown spotting, but no AF yet.......I guess she will find me later today or tonight. I wish she'd just come on already so I can quit holding onto "Implantation bleeding wishful thinking". haha

Yea, 7 dpo is WAY early, the embryo implants 6-12 dpo (most commonly 8-10dpo) and then takes several days after that to register enough hcg in your body to come up positive, so you have a ways to go. =)

I totally agree with you about God's timing. In this life we try so hard to control everything and "make things happen", but ultimately we have to think we're on God's time, not our own, and He will do what is right for us.

Rebekah! I was looking to see if you had made a pg announcement or anything! Sorry it feels like AF is going to come visit this month :-(
Sounds like a good plan to try to stress less about everything next month.
I used an OPK yesterday for the first time and even though it was CD 13 and last month I O'd on CD18, I got a happy face! Luckily we had already BD'ed yesterday morning and I'm sure will be again tonight LOL.

Rebekah!! I love the spelling my sister's its Rebecca (old fashioned) :p. Lol yes 7 DPO its wayyy to early but u know sometimes u just have that feeling u need to pee on the stick! Lol wasting sticks lol!! I am out of OPKs too. I am waiting to see the results of this cycle before buying another 20 day pack. I use the Clear Blue Smiley face one :).


It sounds like your body its nice and ready because u have been monitoring ur cycles. Ditching the BBT will help u for sure. This is my second cycle kind off cause I got off the pill on 7/16 I was on it for 3 months only and prior to that had an IUD, which I took off in March prior to starting Lolo Fe pills to treat an ovarian cyst.

I know we will be able to get pregnant with God's help. I know he will bless us soon, we both need to relax and keep encouraging each other. We are just a few days behind each other in our cycles. We r blessed now bc we r healthy and ready to accept God's will. Pretty soon we will be at the announcing pregnancies! :)

If not this month, next month which means we will be due in june :) I love summer babies. My DD was born in July :) I found out in Halloween I was preggo!! Lol.
