Yeah, it's been a rough winter for us! At least this bug doesn't involve vomit. Last month was terrible.

I'm interested to see if the progesterone is what knocked you out. KUP!

How is everybody doing???

I'm 6 dpo and just chillin.....I keep looking at my chart like it's going to tell me something?! LOL! I'm surprisingly still relaxed and don't feel like peeing on anything yet :) I know it's too early, but usually by this time I'm counting down the days until I can POAS. I've had a little bit of a cold the last few days, but nothing major. The progesterone definitely kicks my butt. I'm usually sleeping within an hour of taking it, but that's why I take it at night!

I agree, I think your timing for O on CD15 is totally fine.

Looks like we're cycle buddies, I am 7 dpo today.

Good luck!!!!!

Thanks for looking at my chart Lora, I appreciate it and I hope you're right! :) I'm also glad I'm not the first person driven mad by charting, lol.

Shawn - yay for my first cycle buddy! :) Good luck to you!

E - how are you doing? Do you normally test early?

How are the rest of you ladies doing? Anything interesting to report?

My temp went up a little bit this morning, curious to see what happens tomorrow. My bbs are starting to hurt a little, but unfortunately that means nothing because it could just be from the progesterone. My optimism for this month is still starting to diminish a little bit.

I am, however, starting to get a little itch to POAS...going to try to wait yet!!

E - welcome! Your username looks so familiar; were you on NQE or NE? Baby dust to you!

Liz - too funny about the room temp! DH just doesn't get it either - or he'll have me get up to tend to the dogs before I've taken my temp, and doesn't understand why I get frustrated for repeating over and over why I can't!

Shawn - your chart looks awesome!!!!! Fingers crossed!!!

AFM - well, we received the info pak from the fertility clinic, which was really just requests for more tests and bloodwork. I was so confused and frustrated, because I figured another u/s would take another 3 months. But we went to see my doctor, who was SO helpful and whom I'm SO grateful for! She explained everything and gave us separate lab requisitions (for this province, obviously) and said she would get back to me on how to schedule the dye test. We both went for more bloodwork (8 vials for me... ouch...) and DH went for his second semen analysis on Thurs.

My doc called me about the progesterone test & dye test, and said her OB/GYN colleague will help her/me get one schedule - we're looking at late February. Six weeks instead of 3 months is a HUGE relief!!!!! So to prepare for those tests, I began a progesterone challenge yesterday. I am doing it now to see how long it takes to 'work', and then will repeat it right before the dye test to make sure I'm on my period for it.

So... dye test in late Feb = results to Vancouver in Mar = phone consult hopefully in Apr = first IUI in Jul. I hope?!

I have another question for ladies who chart...

My temp went up again this morning; however, I'm not sure how accurate it is?? Here's the problem....my alarm goes off about 6 a.m. I remember waking up around 5:00 or 5:15, kind of looking at the clock, then rolling back over and going back to sleep. I couldn't have been up for more than a few minutes. Any idea how much that would effect things?

I wouldn't think it would have made that much a difference. That's a really big jump! Either way, your chart is looking excellent. When are you planning to POAS??
