Good Luck with IVF emski. I wish you a speedy and sticky BFP too original.gif

Mel, can you move me to 'taking a charting break' too? I'm going to stop temping for a couple of cycles and focus on other stuff. If by some miracle I get a BFP, I will be in here quick smart to update, and I will be stalking original.gif

Morning everyone.  It's a beautiful public holiday here today - Adelaide Cup Day.

DH has to study, so DD and I might go on a picnic to the park.  As we were house-hunting yesterday we found a great new park with good 'scooter' tracks   biggrin.gif

I think today is O day.  Had O pains all day yesterday and quite a lot of ewcm.  This is the first time in months that we have actually timed BD reasonably well.  We have been on a bit of a drought, which makes TTC very difficult   rolleyes.gif.  But, it's day 14 today and we BD on day 10 and 13 and might get one in tonight, as tomorrow I go away for a conference.

Have had 2 months of eating well - or better, anyway!  It's also DH's birthday tomorrow, so we have had ppl over most the weekend - lots of cake and champagne   LOL

Hope everyone else is doing well

btd - where are you up to?   ph34r.gif

Well FF has decided to call O on Sat.  All my O pains were on Sun, and Sun and last night I got massive amounts of ewcm.  Temps are screwed up for some reason, so not sure I am trusting FF at the moment.

But, I think I def have O'd, but reckon I am 1 DPO, not 3  

Am off to an o/n conference today.  Am quite excited actually - it's about 21st Century learning for schools.

Hi everyone,

Well DP and I have been away for the Labour Day weekend - headed into the Grampians for lots of walking and relaxing. And some wine tasting. But not too much for me... Got back today, picked up the furry kids from the cattery, and one of them is currently on my lap purring his head off - I think he's glad that we're home!

FF finally called O on CD17, which I agree with, so now I'm 5DPO and waiting....temps are rising nicely.

Mel, enjoy your conference!

That sounds very sensible!

Sooo glad it's Saturday, it's been a long week. But have woken up with nausea. Could be eps... or it could be that I just made a pig of myself on Terry's Chocolate Orange last night!  laughing2.gif

Hope everyone is okay

Morning all, quiet in here again.

I am 5DPO, but FF isn't quite sure as I got ewcm yesterday. But, temps seem ok, and I sort of BDd around the right time.  

Will test end of next week.

Hope everyone has a great w/end.   biggrin.gif

Congrats on your BFP Chief Pancake Maker, you and your DH/DP must be so excited!! biggrin.gif

AFM, I haven't posted much lately as I've been trying to be more laid back in the whole TTC thing (no tempting or OPKs, just going off CM).

DH and I have a joint appointment at the Drs this week. DH will get SA done and I'll have the internal examinations, so hopefully that will give us some answers. If it comes out that ivf is the best route for us then we are going to go down that path pretty quickly.

After TTC # 1 for 15 months and finding out yesterday that SIL is pregnant with their second, I'm just so over it cry1.gif

Congratulations Chief Pancake Maker!

Big hugs to you Fi_80. I'm dealing with a raft of pregnant friends at the moment - so excited for them, and so impatient for my turn!

Ho hum. 12DPO today, which is normally when AF starts to show up. No temp drop this morning though, so keeping FX.

Thanks HappyWomble blush.gif - I've been soooo good about not testing too early too! FF recommends tomorrow, so we'll see what happens. Very firm FX.
