January Chart talk

I thought if we "chatted " on a different thread than the charts it would still keep the chart thread clean and easy to check how everyone is progressing.

Amanda :) Great idea - it does get confusing up there :) As for my LP I think little man was just a nursing fiend (and continues to be!.....he must getting more teeth or something cause I swear he has been nursing like every 2 hours or so at night again.....since he was sick, I just haven't felt like trying to reel him in lately. I also didn't bother with the vitex post o as I wasn't really thinking about it all as I knew we weren't trying that month. Soooooo, I am planning on using the vitex again post O this cycle for about a week or so......oh and can you please remind me of how much EPO you took last cycle? I might try it......Do you have any strategy on how to get that LP longer? Any sign of O? Nothing here yet.........

I took 1000mg of EPO last cycle and 1500 mg on the 2 days I knew O was coming.

I have been wondering where she is too - I think she said she had visitors this week on one of her last posts so maybe that is what is keeping her away! Allison - we miss you, come back!

I agree about not doing much to stop the nursing fest just yet - except at night as it is driving me a wee bit crazy with his every 2 hours or so routine! He is a testy little guy lately too (what a temper!) so I like it as a tool to help calm the storm sometimes too :)

Will see about the EPO next cycle as I am about to O I think - got an almost + OPK today which is making me crazy as DH has worked late all week and will probably shoot all night tonight, which means no BD'ing until at least tomorrow night. Feeling very anxious about it all as we will likely get in only one BD before I O .....hoping it holds off for a day or so but AHHHHh not likely. His schedule sucks!

Amanda- my LO a couple months ago got 4 molars in at once! That's brutal!! Also, have you thought of taking more b-complex to try to lengthen LP? I might up it to 100 mg next month if I don't see anything happening. I took a look at your chart and it looks like you might O soon although the OPK's say differently. Are you still having latch pain? I get really aggravated for more than 10 min. when I'm close to O. Isn't it funny how in-tune to your body you become when you're charting?!? My goodness, you've got a lot of fertile CM, that EPO is really working. I might have to take some! Do you get it from a health food shop?

I missed you girls alot! I've been able to sneak in glances but I couldn't get enough alone time to actually type anything. Between the guests, snowstorms, and DS not taking naps I wasn't able to have 5 min. by myself on the computer! Aaagh!

I missed you guys!! Jasmine- I got excited looking at your chart and seeing the O! Till I saw that you said you didn't have a chance to BD =( On the bright side, you got your O down a day! How long is your LP now? I'm just wondering if the b-complex (you upped it a couple cycles ago right?) is working. I'm thinking of upping it next cycle if I don't get any results. I'm kind of hoping O comes soon this cycle. I had some EWCM a couple days ago but took it off my chart. I might put it back on if I get more signals that I'm fertile but I didn't want FF telling me I'm fertile when I'm not.

I got my EPO at WHole Foods when I was at the end of my pregnancy with DD.

I did not know about EPO and trying to start labor. Huh, I'll have to keep that in mind!

That is really weird about the pain. Have you been bfing a little bit more? That might have delayed your O. Maybe your body was trying to and then had to restart b/c hormones were low, that also might be the cause of - test? Low hormone? Is that even possible? Something to look into I guess. You're definitely O'ing so PG is possible, it's just weird about the tests, could they be bad? Where are you getting them from?

Yeah, I'm hoping for some real CM soon! I think it stopped b/c I didn't take B yesterday. I need to keep up on that in order to get it built up. I really think it was helping b/c I was seeing some good CM and one day it was totally not b/c of BD so I got excited. But yesterday and today there was nothing. So we'll see in the next couple of days!! I think the hardest part is not knowing and having to wait!

I don't know why I've never gotten a positive OPK.

Jasmine- I see someone's at 10 DPO!! Is that the longest you've gone? How long are your cycles normally? I know you said there's no chance but are you glad that your LP is long at least? Yay for small favors!!
