Hey ladies - just checking in quickly. Haven't had much to post since I'm waiting to O/confirm O. Should be soon. My temps are a bit wonky, but this week Evan hasn't been sleeping well which means I've been getting up in the middle of the night or early morning with him, and that might be influencing things. I figure my chart is just a general guideline and doesn't change/influence what is *actually* happening in my body. We're "trying" our best, with the best info we have, and that actually makes me feel more calm about things! Then again, this is only cycle 1 for us, so let's see if I feel that way at cycle 3-4!

Heather - no advice on the follicle thing I have no idea about that sort of thing, but I hope it doesn't stress you too much.

Alyssa: Boo for the yucky sleep. It amazing how many thing in life can get thrown off by little sleep.

AFM: I must say I am feeling pretty good with no artificial hormones. My cramps have been much less than normal, but I certainly did have some mid cycle pains, but I wouldn't call them ovulation pains. I've signed up to take a class in Breastfeeding and Fertility. So excited about that one.

Alyssa that's a great attitude! Wish I could adopt it lol

Kate That sounds like a fun class. :smileyhappy:

Temp still up. I took it twice this am because the first temp was identical to yesterday's temp and the second temp was only .01 off of my first temp so I went ahead and recorded the first one. So that's good.

Heather- sorry about the pain :smileysad: I wonder if it's related to the clomid? I have 2 friends IRL who had side effect wise an easier time with metformin. Anyways, hoping that follicle was indicative of a beautiful egg waiting to be fertilized :smileyhappy:
Mandy- I'm thinking of testing Sunday am, so we could have a POAS party if you'd like. LOL
Christine- have a great weekend! :smileyhappy:
Alyssa- boo for less sleep and yay for "trying" :smileyhappy: I think you're right- at the end of the day that's all we can do... Try our best with the knowledge we have and then leave the rest up to God/ fate/ the Universe! :smileyhappy:
Kate- I'm so glad to hear things are improving. I hate the pill and although my periods really suck without them, I feel so much better off of them.

AFM- I'm 9DPO and I'm having lots of IBS symptoms- gassy, loose BMs, a little cramping. :smileysad: Oh and, I'm moody and tired and have on and off head a headache. All can definitely be normal for me while PMSing, but are also PS. No real 'tells' here. So far, I'm feeling good about my resolve to wait until Sunday to test, unless my temp is down. If the temp is down, there is a plan in place for a chocolate milkshake and some salty French fries. :smileywink:

-Suzie :)

Suzie I love your plan for a temp drop. Mine will be a PB shake from a local diner but I will join you! Hehe. :smileyhappy: hopefully you won't need it!! And neither will I.

My IPS are still around and while some can be pms symptoms that pulling that I felt yesterday definitely wasn't. I felt more today but I have been sooo busy I haven't focused much on it! My boobs are still a bit sore. So fx they are rps!!

Not sure I will test Sunday. I would need to see the next two days temps super high to do tht and even then after two cycles ago when I kept testing and seeig Bfns I may wait... It would be 12dpo by ff right now but if I go off of the 15th as a possible o date the. It's only 7 and that's kinda pointless lol

I'm not taking clomid or anything. My Dr just ordered an u/s after u explained how tender/crampy I grtbeach month during O. And the months that I am crampy are usually followed with very heavy cycles--TMI--but I usually have lots of tissue/clots with those cycles--so he just wanted to check things out :smileyhappy: this is my 6th cycle--so I'm getting a little antsy, but really not ready for clomid, etc. I probably just need to lose some weight. Although, in just under where I was when I conceived Lucy. So who knows?...

My temp is still up today. I set an alarm and woke up on time :smileyhappy:. Only thing was the first time I took it it was 98.04 (exact same as the 2 days prior). So I waited 30 seconds or so and retook it and ended up with 97.97. I recorded the 97.97. Three days of exact temps sounded Wayyyy to weird to me. Has that ever happened to anyone?!? Lol!!

Temp still up sounds so promising and what's more promising is that it hasn't gone above 98 in my cycles lately. :smileyhappy: with dd cycle it was up there in the 98s for 4 to 5 days and then I got my BFP. Trying not to get my hopes up.. But fx. :smileyhappy:
