The 2ww can be a very stressful time for some. It can feel like the longest 2 weeks of the cycle. How do you get through them? Do you find yourself obsessing about temps, or symptoms or do you have the patience to just wait for AF or a + test? Share your tips for getting through this wait.

Kiki-The same thing happened to a few of us here I think. I didn't even have to think about getting pregnant, it just happened.

Kiki, Please don't lose hope. It is all we have in this mad world of TTC. You do survive the cycles that don't work out and you just have to focus on other things to get you through to the next. Remember to enjoy some of the things you used to do before trying. I hope and pray

Thanks Vickie....no, I'm not giving up. TTC just sucks, when you do all the things that are suggested to help you get pg., but then no luck! Then it's sad once you get AF, that's the only time you stop wondering & thinking about it, before ovulation again.....good luck & sticky vibes to everyone else!

Vickie, if yesterday was O it wouldn't be all that odd that my readings were high today because according the CBEFM instructions, the day after O "will always result in a High reading." What would be weird is that the reads remain high seven days after - so that cd12 O date was totally off, glad I didn't believe it. However, in the end I think I was a day late and a dollar short, assuming FF is right, if however, you are correct, our timing was perfect. I'm going with your assessment. ;) My temps are all over the place this month despite a mostly consistent temping time. Oh well, maybe is still out there.

AnneMarie, they say temping a significantly later times can have a big impact in some women and no big change in others. Fertility Friend doesn't consider your temps way off, I don't think, unless they differ more than half hour to an hour. That two hour difference could very well have an impact. FF has an option called "temperature corrector" i'm not sure if it requires membership (I broke down and bought a three month for 12 or 15 I think is all) anyway, it lets you put in your usual wakeup time and then your actual wakeup time and the corresponding temp. Then you push correct and it gives you a corrected temperature---usually warmer the later you temp and cooler the eariler. I have used it a few times in the past. It sometimes makes me feel better when I use it when I don't agree with thier assessment of O date. Good Luck!!!

Praying for BFP's really really soon. We need some more on this board, it seems it has been a while hasn't it???

Baby dust!!!

I have seen charts where women BD'd 7 days before O and still get pregnant. We are holding out hope here for this cycle!

Michele- it's not over until the witch shows her face so we are going to say you are still in the game! If FF is right, then 3 days of high readings would be weird too, right?
