My husband and I are ttc baby number 2 and we're into our fifth month so far. It took 2 months with our first so we were really lucky. I'm currently still waiting for AF to arrive (3 days overdue now), while my temps are way up and I just don't get why my tests keep coming back BFN because I feel like I'm pregnant. The mental side of things is very hard, isn't it? Perhaps I'm actually convincing myself that I'm pregnant. I won't be disappointed about not being pregnant, I'll be disappointed that I got so obsessive and convinced myself I was! Anyway here's my chart in case anyone would like to have a look. We only dtd once because we were staying with family and there isn't much privacy! I hope everyone gets their BFP soon and is kind to themselves. sdfsdd.jpg
How is everyone going?
I'm currently waiting to ovulate. No positive OPK yet but I have had some fertile CM and some cramps (but on both sides?). This is the first time i've used OPK's so I'm hoping that they actually work for me. I would love to know if and when I'm ovulating just to put my mind at ease. Really hope that this month is positive for us. Would love to have some news for DH's birthday!!
Joey3 the elevated temps seem really positive. I've heard of a lot of people not getting a positive test for quite some time after their AF was due. Maybe you could re-test in a few days??
Justwant2beamummy - you never know....if AF hasn't arrived you're still in with a chance
Hey TigerLily, are you temping? I started a few months ago and I found it was the only thing to properly help pinpoint my ovulation. I really struggled with OPKS, but I don't think I followed the rules with holding my wee etc. I hope you get a definite positive and catch that egg!
So... AF arrived which means definitely no positive for this month BUT it also means that my acupuncture is working!! No more weird spotting - just a normal, like it used to be, period!
So glad even gladder to tell my husband who thinks acupuncture is airy fairy and doesn't work, haha.
Now to start temping and see if I can get a reliable ovulation indication.
Good luck everyone who is trying this month!!
I hate the waiting game!!! Analyzing every twinge and feeling lol 7 days until I'll test I think.. Didn't get a positive last time till 13 DPO... Anyone else waiting?? :-)
I'm waiting!! I'm 7 days away from af too this is about our 4th month really trying
I'm waiting. AF due sometime between Friday and Tuesday. This wait is driving me nuts.
