    good morning ladies,

    have a quick question...im confused about my chart...i got a +ve opk on Friday. I also started to see a temp rise on Friday, and then a further rise on Sat and Sun...do you usually get a rise so soon after +ve OPK? I haven't got a cover line yet on my chart...when does that come? aahhh...i dont know whats happening!!!

    Hi Tina,

    Not sure cause I haven't used OPK's. I know that you O and then I think the next day your temp goes up. So maybe you actually Oed on Thursday, but you would still be fertile on Friday. Hope this helps a little. Did you DTD on Thursday or Friday?



    Good luck :goodluck2:

    joey-- That's it--you're officially addicted!! Welcome to my world! Congrats on the EWCM--you should definitely take advantage of it!! Remember you're highly fertile after a m/c, so make sure DH gives his boys a pep talk (minus any talk of baby dancing, cos that tends to be a downer--literally! ) and go jump his bones!



    tina--I wish I could help you out, I was in your predicament a few weeks ago with it being my first month temping, and I was unsure as to when I would see those red lines... then it was just there! I don't use OPK's, so I'm not sure how they really work, but I would think if you got a + on Fri. and have had 3 days of higher temps, then I would guess that maybe tomorrow morning you should see your coverline? There's lots of girls that have been doing this for longer than I have, so maybe they can offer you some other advice as to what they think. for a nice, high temp tomorrow!

    You know you're addicted to BB when:

    1. You sign a 2-year contract and pay $60 more per month just to have wireless internet service for a 5 day camping trip!

    2. Your significant other walks in on you checking the position of your cervix, and actually gets turned on from it!

    3. You resort to becoming an adult film industry advocate in order to keep things alive during those fertile times!

    4. You read, post, and then refresh to read again in case you missed a post while posting!

    5. You dream of being the first to post in the new thread!

    6. You feel like you are wasting urine when you don't pee on a stick!

    7. You see abbreviations in everyday life and try to work out what they mean in the TTC world (eg. DVD must stand for something like "Doing the vjay vjay dance"...)

    8. When you get excited about choosing a new ticker....oh the choices!!!!!

    9. You actually think in emoticons and abbreviations...and occasionally call your husband DH....and he says, "what the hell did you call me????".

    10. And the biggest one of all....DH actually asks if it was a light or dark "BFP" (not positive test) and whether or not you used "FMU" to test!!!! (all in abbreviations...)

    11. When getting a coverline makes you so happy, you feel as though you won the lottery!

    12. When you look forward to going to bed just so you can wake up in the morning and add a new temp!

    13. You say you are taking a break from bb and then spend 24 hours trying to do anything but log on, including cleaning, washing, ironing, shopping, all the while saying to yourself don't do it don't do it don't do it before finally breaking down and getting your bb fix...

    14. You drag yourself out of bed at 6 am every morning even though you're still tired, just to have "quiet alone time" on BB while the kids are still sleeping!

    15. You get the butterflies while logging on to read posts!

    16. You keep your computer on all day long so you know as soon as someone has made a post!

    17. You know you are addicted to BB when you go to put the date on something and you end up writing 9 DPO!

    18. You're whole day is ruined just because you can't log onto BB, and you feel like you're going to go insane without it!

    19. You climb a slide and drive up the tallest hills at your camp spot trying to find a signal so your laptop will work!

    20. You bring your laptop to the drive-in with you so you can check on posts in between shows!

    21. You check your chart at least every half hour, because what if somehow it changed?

    22. You wake up at 2:30 in the morning to use the toilet, and contemplate logging on to see if there's any good news that can't wait until morning!

    23. You wake up at 3 a.m. and have to pee so bad, but you know you'll wake up at 6, so you hold it for three more hours so that you don't ruin your temp!

    24. You toss and turn every morning waiting for it to be time to take your temp!

    25. When DH comments that he's your family, not the girls on BB! (What does he know, anyway? lol...)

    26. You sign on from your mobile phone to let off some steam!

    27. You post 3 times in a row, and twice was just because you ran out of smilies!!!

    28. When you're reading and typing posts in your dreams!

    Hi Tina - usually FF will give you a coverline on the third day of high temps so yours should pop up tomorrow. As for OPK - I gave up using them a long time ago, so not sure on that one. I just listen to my body now, I usually have good O pains so can pinpoint when due. Hoping your "little boys" did their work over the weekend. You have some time after O as well, so you're still in for a chance.

    Jen - that list is getting so long, we'll have to open a separate thread for it. Got some great addictions though.

    Joey - take advantage - maybe it will be your month too.

    Are there any last minute BFP's for June? Bring on July - we want to see lots of BFP's

    Ruthie - welcome, sorry you have to join us but the other girls are right, it's a great place to be, we're such a supportive bunch, thanks for sharing your story. Your son is a true miracle, and you're definately not selfish. Hoping for another miracle for your family soon

    AFM - I think i'm like smilanatu - i broke DH over the weekend - I only have to look at him and he shakes his head and looks like he's going to run the other direction. At least I can say we put in our best effort and whatever will be - will be. Can't do any more than that. I think he was glad to go to work this morning.

    Talking about O pains. Can you give me an idea of where I should be feeling? Perhaps in relation to those hip/pelvis bones that stick out the front when you lie down, or to your belly button? I have a sharp pain every now and then, but it doesn't seem to line up with O, so I'm confused. They can also swap sides, so that can't be O pain. Thanks

    Hi Ladies,

    I'm back and it has just taken about 40 mins to catch up on all the goss.... you have all put down 5 pgs in 3 days - well done.

    Jen and Angel babies - sorry about AF - next month will be the month for you.

    Ruthie - welcome - hope you time here is very short

    WTH - I have the most beautiful pussy cat - Mishka - she's my baby girl.... I spoke with my vet in detail about toxoplasmosis and it is actually very, very rare and usually only effects cats that are outside cats - catching birds, mice etc etc (mishka is an inside cat). The vet gave me some information so I will see if I can find it for you. My vet advised to steer clear of the cats' no 2's (so DH gets the kitty tray job ) and make sure you wash your hands after patting. I couldn't no cuddle Mishka throughout the duration of the pregnancy. Having said that the only test I did not have last time was toxoplasmosis so I actually got tested today in prep for my next pregnancy.

    Tina K

    Hope that's does it.

    AFM - I should O this week, I will start OPK from Wed (I usually O day 17) and will start BDing from Wed - this time I WILL fall pgs, send so baby dust my way.

    I am home today so will probably log on tonight.

    Have a good day

    Hi Everyone. Happy Monday...

    Easha - Thanx for the info on Toxoplasmosis. My cat does spend all day outside, but being 17.5 years old she is pretty lethargic and doesn't bring home presents anymore (thank goodness). So I figure it would be pretty unlikely she would pass something on to me. I am pretty happy to get DH to do the mucky stuff though

    Joey - I have only had O pains since my first loss last September. Had never experienced them before in my life. They are in the ovary area and not painful like AF. Congrats on your fertile EW - good luck catching the eggie

    Mollycat - your DH has plenty of time to restup now after the marathon. The more BD the better...

    KrystieLove - My DH was exactly like your DH this cycle. We missed BD one day (before I knew when I had O'ed) so I made him make up for it twice the next day. "Big picture, big picture," I would say to him. He was so tired. But, like I said to Mollycat, he will have plenty of time to rest up soon enough.

    Jen - your Addiction list is becoming an epic. I was thinking it would be fun to print it on a roll of toilet paper (seeing as I am frequenting that room a lot at present). That way I could read one point each visit. Would probably get through the whole list in a day... Of course, it is more worthy than toilet paper.

    Tina - about OPK's - from what I've read, some people get an ovulation dip on the day of O, so the OPK would then go up on the Saturday and Sunday. Then you are after another temp rise again about 7-10 days later to indicate implantation. Hope it's a help.

    Ruthie - to the thread. There is also a PCOS thread where you may find additional support or information. Thank you for sharing your story with us. You will find a lot of kindness and understanding here.

    Angelbabies - Sorry about AF. I hope you have a lovely, cruisy week at work and your three lovely men shower you with lots of wintery cuddles and hot chocolates

    Jenushka - I'm doing ok. My symptoms are a tad inconsistent. Still lethargic and light-headed. Now frequenting the loo. But my boobs aren't really sore anymore. I did a BT last Wednesday and my HCG had gone from 110 on Monday to 269. Happy with that start. Now having another test tomorrow (including Progesterone). A little nervous. Seriously can't wait for the MS!

    PLC - hey, you've passed a very special milestone.

    PBStar - Hi there. Good to see you are still about. Good luck with TTC when you feel good and ready - your Chinese herbalist sounds very confident and encouraging.

    AFM - going ok. Am now 5 weeks. Am feeling a bit paranoid, despite my resolution to be happy this PG!

    [QUOTE=joey123;1314119]part 2 ...


    About them people..yeah sometimes I feel like hitting someone ..LOL
    telling me not to stress.. OF COURSE I HAVE TO STRESS I CAN'T CONCEIVE ON MY OWN!!..
    Anywho...LOL Yeah I have facebook.. I'm Ruth E Montan find me in the search thingy they have.

    About my preemie....yeah it was a real surprise to see my doc come to my room with this TINY baby in his arms..my baby!!.. He was breathing on his own (remember how I mentioned the steroids my doc put me in to mature his lungs on week 28?) Well it sure worked!!.. He was tiny though and I had to feed him this yucky milk that looked more like goop..it was pure fat to make him gain weight. It smelled really gross. My poor baby...but he gained weight very fast!! I am the happiest mommy.

    I'm watching my body closely but I know..I have been pregnant 3 times..but to tell you the truth 2 were miscarriages and all I remember feeling was the extreme pain..and with my 1st..well he was my 1st and I didn't know the things I know now ..so I don;t even know what I felt with him...and as a matter of fact besides the complications I had ..I had no morning sickness or nothing at all. It was really cool.

    So I'm asking you mommas...what things did you guys feel that totally gave that you were expecting?...
    I keep telling myself "it's all in your head" to save me the heartache if I get a BFN...but heck... lower back not cramps but like I dunno this annoying on and off light pain?

    boobs hurt under armpit?...

    ...I can't wait till Friday.. I am going to test. Am so nervous too...LOL (I always do)

    Thank you for your baby dust I SURE need it!!!

    Baby dust to you girlies too... I can't wait to hear from you girls!!
    hugs,
    Ruthie

    Oh here is the link to myspace if you have it.. I look forward to making friend that understand this whole TTC mania!!..LOL

    Ruthie - Your son's story is amazing. He is one strong little boy!
    Now why of earth would people think that wanting a second baby is selfish?! I can't believe that someone would even say something like that to a woman. Grrrr.
    I'm also hoping for a little girl, but would love a little boy too if that's what I am blessed with

    Jen
    - I'm still a granny, but this granny has to work on a sunday night until after midnight!!! And of course by the time I get home (it's an hour drive) I'm not sleepy so I have to BellyBelly for a little while, hehe.
    We've tried the "video" option, but I ended up just laughing at the dialogue in the movie BUT, I think that handcuffs might be a good idea!!!

    pbstar - Sounds like you've been given some time off from worrying and stressing! I'm glad you are liking your herbalist and that the herbs haven't killed you yet! LOL. I kept telling my acupuncturist that I was sure she was secretly trying to kill me with the herbs
    I'd be like Jen and be sneaking in temp checks in the mornings, hehe. I'm a terrible patient!

    Joey
    - Yay for holidays! We have my 2 DSS's this first week. I took them to the melb meet-up earlier today, and they have taekwondo tonight, and tomorrow we're taking them to the museum because there's a dinosaur exibition thing there
    Watery CM is generally a good sign that you are going to ovulate soon. And now you've got EGCM! I'm not sure if my CM is usually a great indicator though. Well, sometimes it is, but this month things are all over the shop for me! Start BD'ing now missy just in case!
    Sorry to hear about your experience at the expo I'm hoping I'll be pregnant before it comes to melbourne.
    I can totally understand your previous worry with ultrasounds. It's hard to totally trust something until they have been proven safe. Have they done that yet or is it assumed safe? I guess we'd probably know by now if ultrasounds were doing something really bad. Well, I hope so anyway. I'm glad you don't beat yourself up about not having the ultrasound last time. I watched a show recently about twin to twin transfusion, and in 2 of the 3 cases they couldn't medically do anything to change things. In the 3rd they were able to do some new fancy in-utero surgery, but back when you were pregnant with your girls that wouldn't have been around. I'm 100% sure that the blame is not on you honey. Sounds like you always have your babies best interests at heart!!!

    Tina
    - I think with OPK's that you can get two lines for a few days, but a positive is classed as only a test where the test line is darker than the control line. How dark was your test line in comparison to the control? Once you've had the LH surge which the OPK tests for I think you ovulate straight away and then your temperature starts to rise over the next 3-4 days. FF will usually give you your cover line after 3 good days of temp rises. Looking at your chart I would guess that FF will give you lines tomorrow!

    Mollycat
    - Our poor DH's! Lol. I never would have thought us girls could wear out the males!!!

    Easha
    - I love your positivity!!! We are ALL going to get BFP's this month!!!

    WTH - 5 weeks! Yay!

    Toccara - The conversation with you DH sounds really sweet! How nice of him to say that stuff to you. It really helps keep the positivity to hear things like that doesn't it?!

    Hi Ladies,

    Soooo sorry I havent been around, things have been a little hectic lately!

    WTH, Betty, Jenushka and Karen - so so so so happy to hear that all of you got BFP's this month - thats the best news I have had all week!!!!! Well done ladies and Im praying for a healthy and happy pg'cy for all of you.

    WTH - Bummer you didnt get my PM, Im going to try again - and thankyou so much for thinking of me, you are so sweet. I will write more in PM

    Pbstar and Jen - thanks for thinking of my whilst I was MIA! Im back!!!!!!!

    Welcome to all the newbies - sorry for the circumstances that brought you here, but you couldnt have found a better place for support - these ladies have been my angels this year, and I dont know how I got through the other 2 (years of ttc that is ) without them!

    Sorry everyone, but I cant possibly catch up on everyones posts and write persies, but I will continue from here and try my best to catch up with my chatterbox ttc friends - I love it!

    AFM - I dont know what the hell is going on?????? For the past week I have had EXTREMEMLY SORE BB's....and Im only on CD14 or 15 (not sure till I post!). I shouldnt have even ovulated yet! I think I may have ovulated WAYYYY too early, which is weird cause I thought after the chem pg last cycle that it would put me out for a bit. I figure that if my bb's are this sore, I may have ov about a week ago? WTF?????? They are honestly sooooo sore. Usually I know when I have ov cause I get this 1 sore spot in my left breast which gradually increases as the days go by in the TWW. But this time, they went from a little tender 1 day to full blown PAIN the next and have continued. I think I may get AF early as well
    Honestly....if I didnt get a full on AF last cycle (accompanied by dissapearing pain in bb's and temp drop) I would swear I was still pg. Im soooo tired and have been for ages now and I occassionally feel nauseous throughout the day. Ofcourse i am definatley NOT pg, but my body is def doing weird things! My opp with FS is in a couple of weeks so im hoping we can work out whats going on and work out a way to GET ME UTD

    Anyway ladies, that was my rant, so Ill be reading your posts carefully from now on and Ill be doing persies as well - gotta keep up with you all!

    to all of you,

    Issy

    hello ladies! i've got so much to catch up on...

    ruthie, welcome! thanks for sharing your amazing story with us! hope your ttc journey is short & sweet!

    jen: sorry about af... i was so expecting a bfp from you after that 'implantation' dip - how can you have an implantation dip & not have a bfp??!?! is that possible? are you sure its really af??? i mean are you really really sure? im still hoping...

    toccara: sorry af not treating you well.. - or for showing up at all! hope she goes away quick smart... try to 'push' her out! i think it works!

    issy: please be pg symptoms!!

    krystielove: how was the meet? i just read about it just now, & wouldnt have been able to make it anyway due to work... perhaps next time! would love to meet everyone here!

    wth:

    tina: !!!

    everyone else i missed: HELLO!

    afm: af gone.. the shortest af i've ever had! i think all that pushing did the trick. went to the herbalist last week, forgot when - i think friday? first time i drank chinese herbal medicine *shudder* horrible... getting used to it though! the chinese herbalist diagnosed me as having weak kidneys & spleen, & my lungs are cold. so hopefully these foul tasting concoctions pay off & get me a bfp for july! that'll make it all worth it!
