Mandy - your chart is looking really good! Fingers crossed for you!!

Heather - I can understand being antsy by the 6th cycle. Hopefully you get your BFP soon!

Jan - boo for AF!

AFM - still waiting to O. I've had four days of EW/Watery CM, so I'm thinking O should happen today or tomorrow. I'm glad I started temping, because I totally would have thought the watery CM was semen, but because my temps are still relatively low, I know I haven't O'd. Hey - it's like this whole charting thing helps :smileywink:

Thanks Alyssa! And thats why I temp too even though later in the cycle it tends to make me batty. lol

I am trying to decided is I hsould test or not tomorrow. Today I havent had as much sore boobs...so that IPS isnt around this morning. :/ And other than that I havent felt too different than normal. We shall see what happens. Maybe if my temp it still up I will POS just to see and if its not then I will wait a few days to see what happens. I mean I am still so unsure of my O date.....thanks to my funky chart. lol

Mandy - I'm surprised your charts arent even wonkier with all the overanalyzing you do!! LOL I'm still voting for CD15 as O in which case it's not quite time to test. But go nuts and hopefully BFP!! :smileyhappy:

Alyssa - yep, that's the ONLY reason I temp too - if it's low, I know I'm still in the running. After 2+ years of temping, I'd be in an asylum by now if I took it too seriously!

Jan - sorry about Af! :smileysad:

Heather - don't know too much about your history but I'd say if your tenderness is so severe/sensitive that you can't BD, it could be a ruptured cyst. And I think a 1cm follicle is normal for PCOS.

AFM - having MAJOR breakouts, it SUCKS!!!  But hopeful it could mean I'm guaranteed an O??  Here's hoping.

I am thinking I am leaning more towards CD15 too and I realize that it wouldnt be quite time to test if that were the case. But part of me thinks CD10 too. lol. And if thats the case I would be 12DPO. I am just not sure whats going on this cycle. Every cycle I vow to be more relaxed lol. I suck at that. And to be honest (despite my constant ramblings here- I have been more relaxed this cycle than I have been this summer- IRL I havent been too obessed with everything... Just kinda wondering here and there and wishing for the next week to fly by. lol- I tend to come on here and post when I am bored or avoiding house work and my mind runs wild with the possibilities hehe!!)

I always breakout too mid month. I didnt realize it was conncected to Oing lol. Interesting. Hopefully that is what it means for you!

Mandy & Suzie - Your charts both look really good! Hope to see some BFPs in the next few days!!

Heather - Yay for a + OPK!!

Waving HI to everyone else.

AFM - Feeling kinda bummed right now. I did all this work to set the mood for DTD tonight and DH wasn't able to finish. And I'm pretty sure I'm Oing today. Couldn't be worse timing. :-/

Aww, Christine, so sorry. I know that is SO frustrating bc I've been in the same place. What about yesterday? Chances are there are plenty of swimmers left from then.

AFM--I hate OPKs because they are so subjective! I *think* the one I took around 6:30 was pretty darn close to positive, but I'm not sure. Not that it matters a ton anyways, but still wish I knew. Im using the Internet cheapies, but I wish I had the digitals here. Were going to wait till tomorrow to BD bc I'm trying to get it as close to O as possible without missing it. And without burning out too soon, lol! Things are a lot harder with a two year old in the house than they were when we were TTC #1.

Thanks Heather. We actually DTD on Tues and Thurs (I just synced up from my phone a min ago) and upon further review, since my temp shot up this morning I'm hoping I actually O'd yesterday. I guess I just have this fear that since DH has ED issues and we're both 3 years older this time around (33 and 36) that it's not going to be as easy. We got PG on the first cycle we NPPd with Selin, which in some ways I think makes the second time around even harder. I feel bad complaining since I'm only on cycle #2 but it's still frustrating when you want something so badly and are also aiming for a certain timeframe (you're a teacher too, aren't you?)

On the plus side, I did finally get to drink my frozen margarita mix tonight that has been waiting for me in my freezer for a few months. Interestingly, DH said to me as I'm drinking it on the couch next to him, "that isn't good for pregnancy" and I'm like, "I'm only ovulating, I'm not PG yet!!" LOL, men. :-P
