Alison - I am from Oregon and I hate Louisiana with a passion so yes!!!

Well me and Rob talked a long time last night, he called my mom and talked to her, and we talked some more and...

WE'RE MOVING BACK TO OREGON!!!!! Rob said he is done with his parents and their BS and it's not just about me anymore, he needs to get away from them and be where we have family who really cares about us and supports us. I am so so so so SOOOOOOOOOO excited!!!!

We've already announced our move on FB (to all but Rob's family) and it's definitely happening!

I am so happy!!! OMG I am so happy!

Christine, I put the data in if it's different than normal. So if it's creamy or EW CM then I put it in fertility friend. I think fertility friend is wrong sometimes and I think that you're better off now with those cross hairlines.

I had a big dip in temperature that I before last and then this morning a very sharp rise. I didn't take my temperature yesterday morning. I'm crossing my fingers that that was an implantation dip and the start of a triphasic chart. The only thing is is that the dip occurred around 4 to 5 DPO And that maybe a little early to be implantation? What do y'all think? That's using the Odate that I changed it to. I decided to override FF. And put my ovulation day at day 14.

Ha ha not but it really matters. I just think that charting is a good way to pass the 2ww.

Kate - ok, I get you. Well then I'm glad you're not UNhappy!

Heather - not overstepping at all! As for what we've tried, each round of Clomid was a different dosage. I had the dye test done and don't have any blockages or large cysts, etc. My thyroid is fine. DH is perfect (dang him!) We've been using PreSeed for about 6 months. Also on Metformin. It's the PCOS and my anxiety that is the problem. I know it *is* possible and we have a long way to go. Our plan is a maximum of three IUIs and then one surrogacy - we definitely cannot afford more. But that timeline won't be for another 2 years. It's just unfathomable that I'd have to wait 5+ years for this.

And the wait times are because, well, I'm in Canada!! Damn universal healthcare! :smileywink: If I chose to go down to Minneapolis (the largest big city to me) I would get in waaaaaaay faster. IUI & IVF waits here are more like 6 months. No big surprise since regular surgery waits are 12+ months.

racer - emotions running high everywhere, you're not alone!!!! Keep us posted.

Alyssa - chart's looking GREAT!!! Still feeling queasy?

Amy - yup, please instill that new pattern immediately!! lol Are you open to the move to OR?

Christine - FF is fickle in that they immediately count EWCM as super-fertile... so I would pay more attention to the temperature pattern. And yes you can still get EWCM post-O. Either way, fingers crossed you caught that egg!!!

AFM - pretty sure I'm out. No sign of O. Blood test on the 28th to confirm and then seeing my doctor on the 3rd so he can "explore other options" with us (ie likely ovarian drilling).

I really, really wanted to be pregnant before my next birthday. Sad face.

Amy - GL with a potential move back home!

Charting question for you ladies:

Last night before I went to bed I noticed a small amount of EWCM. Put it in FF and now I have dotted crosshairs and an O date of two days earlier, which actually works in our favor because we DTD the day before and two days before the new O date! And I've been really good this cycle about temping at the same time everyday, or within a half hour.

Do you guys put in late post O CM? I was 7dpo today but with this EWCM now I'm 9dpo.

The new date does make more sense to me LP wise but I'm concerned because I had solid crosshairs before putting in last nights EWCM and now I have dotted crosshairs with or without it.

Thanks!

Might go back to WTT for a few months here. My in laws finally pushed Rob's last button and he says he wants us in Oregon in 6 months!! I don't want to move while heavily pregnant so we might just stop trying until right before the move. I say might because Rob has been set on moving before and changed his mind so I want to make sure this isn't the anger talking and that he really is serious about us moving this spring!!!

"I think there should be a "women who are TTC get pregnant" pattern LOL! "

Yes! I like it :smileyhappy:

Jan/Kate - sorry that going off BCP is making you both weepy (amoung other things). Hopefully your emotions and hormones will begin to even out soon.

Christine - thanks for the note about my temps! Not as high today, but still higher above the cover line than normal at this point in my cycle. I'm trying not to get my hopes up though, since it's still so early.

Jan - Sorry about the money woes. Hope everything gets straightened out soon.

Alyssa - Your temps are looking good! Hope they keep going up up up!

Erica - Thanks for asking about my LLL process. It's basically come to a halt since I started at my new school. My leaders are totally supportive of however long it takes me to get through the process which is reassuring. How is your group and homeschooling going?

Kate - Never say never! ;-)

Alison - Sorry you're having a rough day. Go eat some good chocolate. (((HUGS)))

Heather - Your chart is certainly doing some wacky things! I'm guessing it's your thermometer.

Cassie - Glad your conference is going well. Everything really does happen for a reason. Congrats again on the house!

Amy - Sounds like you've got a good plan as far as TTC. GL with the move!
