Silver!!

Hi all, hope you had a great Easter weekend!  We headed down the coast with a bunch of mates (14 of us!) and stayed in a holiday house.  Holly (DD 2) was the only kid - she loved the attention.  And got SO spoilt with easter eggs!

I have been MIA on here for a long while - new job this year has been so busy.  But, I am on holidays now so can catch up on what's going on.

I O'd last week and BD once on O day. But, after 18 months I hold low expectations.  DH and I really need to get back into BDing a bit more regularly too.

Welcome Tiken.

And welcome back everyone! it's been so quiet in here, i've been feeling like it was just me and the crickets! Can't believe I missed out on Gold, Silver and Bronze!!! hahahahaha

Hi All!

I thought I would come join the shiney new thread.

I'm TTC #1 after I MC in 2009.

I was diagnosed with PCOS in 2010 went on BCP and then started TTC again December 2010 (Off BCP obviously!). I've been on Metformin since July 2011 and still haven't gotten anywhere!!! I have a OBGYN appt in June (yes that's the first available appt!) but until then I get to go crazy waiting!

This is my first month of charting (yes, it has taken me this long to start), and have worn out google looking at every single little miniscule change that I have noticed in my temperature, body and anything else I think I haven't had before, but am still hopeful that this month I will actually get my BFP!

I'm currently on 11 DPO, and snapped at DB this morning after some morning BD as I had some bleeding (I'm sure it was his fault!) which wasn't there 10 minutes beforehand! So far I think I panicked for nothing, I haven't had any other spotting, and hopefully my body was just being annoying and it was not a precursor to AF.

Anyway, that was my little rant! Thanks for letting me tell my part so far.

Good luck to all still trying!

Thanks CherieDeMomie!
I'm 13 DPO now after an AF false alarm last night (she's a tricky little wench!).
Happy birthday to your DD, and good luck, I hope you get a BFP too!!!

Hi Girls, not much happening here just waiting to test.  I think I can feel AF coming, no drop in temps yet, but my obsessing is here in full force  original.gif

Cheri how was your daughters birthday, did you have a party for her?



#12 Sunshiney

Posted 12 April 2012 - 09:09 PM

Hi ladies!  

A stalkers question  - is the temp drop on Mandy's chart just before she got her BFP a normal feature on a BFP chart?  

My LP is out the window atm (~8 days), but hopefully will be back on track next month with a stronger vitex dose.  I'll put my chart back into my sig and join you all then!

Thanks!!

Sunshiney, Mandy's temp drop on day 9 is fair evidence of implantation.  Though - not everyone gets a temp drop with implantation and not everyone gets a BFP after an implant temp drop  LOL

Implant happens between 7 - 11DPO or thereabouts. If it is an implant temp drop, then you would likely get a BFP 2 or 3 days later.  But, it's not an exact science.

Confusing enough?  LOL

babyinabackpack - do you take anything for a short LP?  I use B6 which works really well for me

Thanks Mel - that explains why I've never seen it on my charts - implantation hasn't successfully occurred to date even on the one that made it to 5 weeks.  I've been seeing a good GP & naturopath though so hoping for a change in luck in the coming months!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.

AFM - I think I'm close to O'ing, which is a relief after the m/c earlier this month. I'm getting blood test results tomorrow... unsure.gif

Bah! AF showed her ugly face on the weekend, so back to square one.
I've decided to take a break this month so I can actually go overseas stress free and well drink original.gif
I'll still be temping but not medicating or really focusing on O.
Good luck to all, and congrats Tiken!
