Hi ladies :)

I am CD12 today and have actually had ewcm off and on since Sunday (had NONE last month). I started opks and the line is actually darker than I expected it to be (about half of the test line, maybe a tad lighter). I don't want to get my hopes up, but it looks like I could *possibly* have an earlier O this month (compared to CD19 last month). We started BD'ing Monday night just in case.

I have been checking the boards frerquently, but have not been posting as much lately. The year mark of TTC is creeping up quickly (end of March) and I am really trying to relax and not think about it. I think I have succeeded (so far) this month. I usually have to count what day I'm on, and I think that O *maybe* coming at a regular time this month is a good sign.

So, don't be alarmed (or offended!) if you don't see many posts from me. I am definitely still here, just laying a little low :)

Sorry for being AWOL ladies - AF is absolutely kicking my ass. I'm going through a Super every 3 hours. :S

Liz - congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I knew it would happen soon for ya, you lucky duck!!!

Name/Partner's name: Alison & C

Where are you in the process? Awaiting more tests (progesterone & "dye") - hopefully later this month, which would mean my new doc would review the results and hopefully have a phone consult in March or April, with a summertime first IUI. The good news is that the progesterone challenged WORKED - oh boy, did it.

Do you chart? Want to share? I do. It's useless though (no natural ovulation).

Doing anything new this month? Not really. Had a super-fabulous date night with DH on Sunday (we usually only do them for birthdays & our anniversary, so it was a fab surprise). My sister may be visiting next weekend for the long weekend. (The "new" sister who I only discovered last year and have seen once!)

Any other kids/pets/ruffians at your house? 2 furboys, Leo the Pyrenees and Jesse the Westie

What's your favorite food to eat when you're PMSing? I don't get PMS... haha

alison - sorry AF is being a B. Hope she eases up soon.

How is everybody else doing??

I am on CD13 and got a +opk this morning. I took one last night and it was so close that I used a digital to confirm and didn't get that smiley face, so I knew it would be positive today. Relaxing has DEFINITELY helped me! I had ewcm this month and I'm O'ing at a regular time. Super happy about that :)

Jules how long we're you on birth control? I was on 11 yrs before I had David and have been on 2 years after David this coming July. That is part of the reason iv want to go off two months early, use condoms and then TTC. I am a little worried this time as I am 36 will be almost 37 . It only took me 4 months last time even after bc but I am still nervous as I don't really want an age gap more than 4 yrs and also because of my age I would like to be done by 39.

I am pretty sure I am out this month, but I am not saying it completely until AF shows her ugly ugly face....I am on CD26 and that's usually the last day of my cycle. I usually have spotting though one or two days before and I haven't/don't have that, so maybe I am not out. I am trying not to get my hopes up because I have done that in the past and I have NO idea if we had good timing or not.

So waiting at least another few days before testing.....

I should have waited on my post the other day...as AF showed up yesterday afternoon....I am sure she will be in full force today or tomorrow! Bummer.

Hoping for better timing next month. GL to all the rest of you.

Liz - have you been able to keep it from DH??

Boo for AF, Jess! That really sucks.

I still haven't told him. He totally rained on my parade the other night when he started talking about how he didn't know if we could afford two in daycare and how maybe we should wait to TTC. The next night he asked if I was using a midwife...then added "in the future, I mean, since you aren't pregnant right now." So I suspect he's trying to goad me in to telling him. I may do it tomorrow, since he works on V-Day.

Hi Ladies! :) Sorry I've been a bit MIA, will explain below.

Name/Partner's name: E & S

Where are you in the process? 4th cycle, TTC #1 for us (3 for him). CD12, O'ing soon.

Do you chart? Want to share? link in my ticker

Doing anything new this month? (HA! I orginally typed morning. I don't want to know. :smileywink:) Trying not to obsess over TTC, while still charting and keeping up with the boards - tricky!

Any other kids/pets/ruffians at your house? One awesome cat, Catcher

What's your favorite food to eat when you're PMSing? The 3C's - chocolate, cheese and carbs!

AFM - Hey girls, sorry I have been so quiet. I had a stressful/bad week or so - with major car troubles, big fight with my sister, money stress, taxes stress, ugh. Lot's of crying, lost sleep and stress eating. Also completely fell off the exercise bandwagon. Started to come out of my funk and got hyper-focused on searching for a new job and networking so that has been taking up most of my free time.

Just wanted to post real quick and catch up before heading out of town. Leaving at 4 am tomorrow to drive to TN. BD'ing at the in-laws! Whoo hoo ;) CD12 today, expected O Tuesday. Wish me luck! Will try my best to keep temping/charting while out of town, but I feel my chart has already suffered a little this month from stress and poor sleep.

Liz - HUGE CONGRATS :) Can't wait to hear that you've told DH.

Allison - sorry for the really rough AF :(

Shawn - we're almost in the TWW cycle buddy! Whoo hoo for EWCM! I totally understand laying low, I have done it as well and it truly helps with the relaxing.

Jessica - sorry AF showed :(

Hope I didn't miss or skip over anything else major! Hope you're all well! :) See you again on Tuesday or Wednesday when I'm back home.
