Adrienne- Yay for AF! Even if you temp with a normal thermometer it might make sense to just get 3-4 temps before O so you could take your temp after O and know if they were already in the higher range. I hope this is your cycle!!!

Liz- I wonder if it just comes from still nursing so often? Nursing seems to lead to some wonky charts and signs for some women.

Before Fede I charted with a regular thermometer and I still was able to see a clear pattern

Hey ladies. How is everybody doing?

I am on CD2. This last cycle ended up being 27 days, which I've never had before (usually 28-32). I had some spotting on CD 16, then again on CDs 25, 26, and 27. Thought I had it on CD28, but that ended up turning into CD1. After having 2 m/c before 5 weeks and a third pregnancy that I had to be on progesterone supplements (before m/c and d&c) I'm afraid that the spotting is a sign of low progesterone. I called the Dr. and am waiting for a call back. I am definitely ready for 2012 and a fresh start for TTC!

Have you ever had your thyroid checked? I just had mine checked because my AF is all over the place (12 day cycles, random spotting, etc)... still waiting on my results.

Lora - sorry about DH's little issue last night. Even so, your timing leading up to O sounds great. 17 people is a lot, I feel your pain though. Seems like everybody I know is pregnant, especially everybody that had babies around the same time we had DS.

Em - yay for O! Hoping for a birthday BFP for you!

AFM - spoke with my doctor today. She said with the weird spotting I had this month combined with my history warrants progesterone supplements. So, I will start taking them the second half of my cycle. I have fairly consistent cycles (28-32 days) so she said I should be able to start taking it on day 18. If anybody has experience taking supplements and has any advice I'm all ears!

Lora- Your timing was still fantastic this month! I hope you get a BFP in 9 days:)

Shawn- It is great that your doctor listened to you and put you on progesterone. I hope it is all you need to get that nice sticky bean.

Em- Good luck this cycle it looks like you and Lora will be testing around the same time- exciting!
