Woo hoo! I did it! It took me some figuring out, but for future reference, all
Thanks Erin for getting the thread up and running.
Erin - Thanks for getting everything set up!!
ERIN - thanks for getting us started! I don't use IE at home, so it never would have worked! :)
MARY - Yay for AF and moving on to a new cycle! Nice timing, right after vacay, we start the new thread. I feel a really good vibe for you this cycle and am keeping those positive thoughts coming your way! :)
Thanks, Erin! This just makes chart stalking so much easier:).
I even use it to "stalk" my own chart, since it has the chart overlay.

Its so weird being on our own board... I feel out of place lol. But if this is where my friends are... this is where I'll be.
Mary and Ruby- YAY on getting unusual cycles ended. I was really hoping for BFPs... but considering Ruby was protected, and Mary's cycle was very odd looking, I guess I can't say I am surprised. On to next month! Hopefully we all get to have May babies.
I went to the OB/GYN today. It was very different for me because I had a male GYN this time. I guess it was my fault for not asking when I scheduled it, but it was really not as bad as I thought it could be. Especially since the nurse was there the whole time, I felt pretty comfortable.
It was just a general checkup, but I also asked some questions. The good news is that he was really optimistic for us, because we are both young, and my cycles are regular. He reminded me that the statistics for each month are low, but consecutively fairly high. The only thing he said that was news to me was how long he says its ideal to lay down after GOFO when trying. He said 30 minutes to a hour at least. I have stayed laying down for maybe 10 minutes, but it isn't that hard to improve in this area. (However, I know that you don't HAVE to be laying down to get PG, Noel said that she jumped up right after, and took a shower, but she is definitely still PG lol)I figure it isn't that hard to do, and if the OB/GYN thinks it can help... why not do it. I'll start that next month (GOFO fest is done for this month).
Yesterday I hung out with my friend who is PG and has a toddler, and it helped wane my baby fever lol. Toddlers demand SO MUCH ATTENTION lol. We would talk for like 3 minutes before we would have to stop for something to do with the little girl. It, of course, did not stop me from wanting kids, but made me appreciate my relaxing nights and dates with my DH, and the ability to watch a whole show without interruption. (She seems to have this affect on me each time I go.)
I took my temp today, and it was above my typical cover line, so I gave myself an ovulation date and cover line. Partly so it is easier for me, partly so that you ladies can have a better idea where I am at. I don't plan on temping again until AF (although if I get a BFP, I just won't temp at all lol). So... as far as I know I am officially in the TWW.
Well... I am off to work on my classroom today. How are all you ladies doing with whatever point you are in your cycle?
And, just a question that came up on another board I am on, and I am curious to find out your ladies answers- Who knows that you are TTC? What do you answer to people who ask about kids that you don't feel comfortable telling that you are trying?
*thread crashing* just for a sec for a couple comments...
erin - kudos for figuring it out!
Carly - The funny thing is that I do know some html coding, so I went that route first. Pulling up IE turned out to be easier! :)
We miss you around here (although I've still been kinda MIA)!
Mary - Yay for AF! I know you and Ruby are both super relieved. Here's to next cycle!
AFM - I'm still around, just haven't had much to report on the TTC front. I'm finally at CD15, so we'll probably start the GOFO fest soon. After Carly's freak early O, it's got me a little paranoid that I'll randomly O early one of these times and miss my window of opportunity!
We went to Yosemite over the weekend because that was one of our must-sees before we move. I wish we'd made it there more because it was truly an amazing site to see. I also need to buckle down a bit on the cleaning/getting rid of stuff front. Luckily the movers will pack our stuff, but our apartment is still a wreck and needs to be pared down some!
Who knows that you are TTC? My Sisters, His sister, our close friends and my parents, oh yeah *all* of his coworkers, and one of mine.
