Awh Liz that sucks! It is so annoying when circumstances outside of our control come between TTC!

If my temps continue to go up then I do believe I O'd. I have never taken B6 before and I think it is just making my cycle a bit crazy. Like I have never had pink tinged CM before and now I have had it for like 5 days. If AF comes in the next few days then I will count this cycle as annovulatory and stop taking the B6.

Looking good, Ash! I think you O'd. :)

AFM, confused again. I had even more EWCM this morning. Maybe I'm not out of the running just yet...

That would be great Ash!!! 6 dpo, you're halfway there :) Will you test early?

Good luck Liz! A second chance would be great! You could get in some healthy BD'ing Hope you're all feeling better!

AFM - Today is CD 14, got a +opk last night (and again this morning) so today is likely O day for me! We BD'd Friday night, Sunday night and last night. It would be nice to get one more in tonight, but I don't think it's going to work with our schedules tonight :(

That sounds like perfect timing Shawn!
Liz- Yay for still having a chance!
AFM: I still have lots of internet cheapies so I will start testing Thur/Fri/or Sat depending on my temps and if the spotting becomes a super early AF :-( I already feel out though when I look at how low my temps are and how I feel crampy.

Ashley - ahhhhh, you so totally O'd right on schedule!! How exciting. One more week til you test?! I can't comprehend actually getting pregnant on your first cycle of trying - wow - sooo jealous, haha!

Liz - I'm still hopeful for you!

Shawn - nicely done!! lol

AFM - Ugh, yet another bout of frustrating runarounds. I went to my doctor's office and it was a total waste of time - I saw another doctor (based on the receptionist's recommendation) and explained the situation - nope, she wouldn't authorize the fax! Kept saying I "should" wait to see my own doctor. REALLY!?? It's JUST a fax!!!! The form is filled out!!! I don't even need my doc's signature!!! SO so incredibly frustrating how no one there was willing to help me out and just put the damn paper in their stupid fax machine!! So now I have to wait until January 10th to see her and THEN the form better be sent the same freaking day. Which means an expected phone consult in February, and hopefully our first actual appointment in BC in April or May.

I am raging just reading your post Alison! What in the world is their problem! I would have like run to the fax machine and tried to fax it myself. Is there anyone working there who you could call or who has a teensy bit of sense who could still fax it for you? Seriously I think it is awesome that you are able to remain calm and decent about this process. Oh and I highly doubt I am pregnant though of course I wish it. My symptoms are just too strange and my temps too low.

Adrienne: Yeah I totally can't get on the PC at all when Teddy is awake either- he either comes over and bangs on the keyboard or just shuts it off which is even less funny. However since I am 7 hours ahead of central time when I post during nap time or after he goes to bed it is often right in the middle of the day for you guys.
I am SO sorry that you got a BFN today!! I was really hoping this was your cycle but like you say at least now you can definitely make it to the wedding and next cycle you will be bringing your "A game" and coming home with a BFP ;)
Shawn: I totally know how you feel about the trying to get as much BD in as possible but I have heard that the little swimmers are actually better quality if you don't do like 4 days in a row. I'm not sure if it is true though but it is what I have heard. I hope this is your month and you get a nice sticky sticky bean:)
AFM: Still have pink tinged CM at least once a day but I just ordered a new pack of 20 cheap pregnancy tests so that when I waste 5 or 6 this cycle there will be more waiting for me and the next cycle :eye roll:

Thanks Ashley. I've also read that BD'ing too much may not be effective, but I'm at a point that I'm feeling a little frustrated and thought we'd give it a shot. I told DH last night that I'm so over TTC, we're on our 7th cycle, 9th month and after three m/c's this year I just feel exhausted with TTC. But, babies aren't made without DTD, so at least we gave it our best effort :) I had some pretty uncomfortable cramping last night which I think was O, and we were able to squeeze in another BD session, so at least our timing was good. So it was one night on, one night off, then three nights in a row. Guess we'll see what happens in about a week and a half!

Good call with stocking up on tests, are you still planning on testing this weekend????
