Now girls!  For those that have been around as long as I have (Divine, Mel...) you know my chart often looks pretty   LOL

No real IPS/EPS/AF symptoms though.  Not even going to think about testing!

Thanks for the welcome girls original.gif

I've only been charting for 4 months now (only temping for 2 months) and I'm actually really enjoying the process. I quite like seeing the changes and patterns that the body goes through - right there in front of me in black and white (so to speak). You know there are changes going on, but when you can actually see it on a computer screen, it all makes much more sense!

I find it super interesting.

Hi girls, can you put me in the Taking a Break section ...

I just landed a dream job - and start tomorrow so I think i'm going to take a break from TTC, well not really try anymore, just do what we do when we do it and if that becomes a baby then great.

I've stopped taking all the herbs and we go on holiday next week for 3 weeks which is all fine with my new job. I wish everyone SO MUCH LUCK and who knows - I might end up back here or not. I've decided to just let nature take it's course. No more charting, no more temping, no more herbs. Just life!

Good luck everyone and thanks so much for all your support. Today is my last day as a SAHM so i'm taking DD to the gallery in the city to celebrate. I've had 4 amazing years of being with her and working for myself from home but tomorrow I become a full time worker again.

Yup - my inner nerd loves it too! And right now it's got a great side effect too - I can see that my cycle is back on track after the m/c three weeks ago, which is really reassuring.

Oh Cheri congrats on the new job!! Wow what a change for you and your dd! Hope you are feeling good about your new free outlook on life and no doubt that bfp will be just around the corner for you. Have a great holiday and hope to hear of some utter good news from you soon.

Just popped in to say that really, oh and congrats to the most recent graduates! And hugs for Clare.

Afm DH still undecided, one minute he says we need to have another the next he's banging on about all the changes and cost blah blah blah, so I'm still tracking my cycle, quietly going about my business and hoping he will just say lets go for it! Oh how I wish the chem preg worked out...

Due to O thurs/fri - no action scheduled my dad is staying with us at the moment and I'm out for drinks thurs so there goes another cycl!

I'm scared to be excited about my high temps this month. While I've been charting for 4 months, I've only been temping for 2, and this month my high post-O temps are sticking around for a lot longer than they usually do.

I know I'll be crushed when AF arrives, because these high temps are giving me the slightest bit of hope.

Keep having to tell myself to stop being excited. glare.gif

**Mel** sad.gif on the temp drop

AFM - After a scare at the doctors yesterday (she found a lump in my breast, but I got the all clear last night) I am just waiting to O.  Bought a maybe baby which gives me something else to play with!

#42 Clare L

Posted 18 April 2012 - 10:17 AM

KateyDee & **Mel** - grrrr! Technically not over til AF arrives though...

Allie_D - Scary stuff - glad to hear you're okay though. Have fun with the maybe baby!

AFM - looking at my chart and judging by how I feel, I think I O'd yesterday. No chance this month as we're taking a break, but it's nice to know things are back on track after the m/c. Obviously FF won't call it for a couple of days yet, but I'm pretty sure...

Have a great Wednesday everyone,
Clare

FX for your ovulation!

AFM: Another temp drop this morning, and AF is due today, so it's not looking good.

I had high hopes for this month after seeing my temps stay elevated for a lot longer than last month. Plus, the temps themselves are actually higher than last month.

But alas, a drop yesterday, and a lower drop today.

I'm just waiting for AF now. Popping into the bathroom to check every 15 minutes....

Good morning ladies!
Firstly a big congratulations to Tiken!! I hope you have a quiet 8 months!!

cheriedemommy - I've stalked your journey for a while now and was looking forward to getting to know you here! It sounds like an amazing opportunity for you at work though and I wish you all the best! Fingers crossed for "not trying" miracles!

**Mel** - I'm taking quite an array of things for my cycle. I take Flaxseed oil, zinc, Mulit-vitamin with high B6 and B12, Lutein, and I also get stabbed once a week by my witch doctor and take his magic concoction of herbs and who knows what after every meal.. So far it's been a slow process and over the course of 7 months my LP has only increased on average from 11 to 12 days.. But my cycle in whole has shrunk from 26 to 25 days.. So I'm not really sure what's going on.. I'm tempted to start looking for a new witch doctor and see if that helps..

Hi to everyone else!
Sorry to those who have AF or have had temp drops.. My AF left today so I'm back in the game..

ETA: Allie_D - wow! scary stuff!! I'm crossing all my fingers and toes for you that everything comes back clear!

babyinabackpack, I think I mis-read yoru charts when I thought you had a short LP.  12 days is fine.

I take B6 for mine - when I stop taking it, my LP slowly decreases.

Hi everyone else,

I am just waiting for AF to show - I think FF got O day wrong, as I never have an LP this long, but I took a test yesterday which was BFN so I am not UTD.

#47 Three Of Hearts

Posted 22 April 2012 - 09:19 AM

**Mel** I see by your chart that AF arrived on Friday sad.gif Damn that AF!!

AFM - I had a big temp rise this morning, which seems odd as I don't think i've O'd yet.  My cervix is still quite low and firm and I haven't had a positive OPK yet.  Maybe it will dip tomorrow.  I have been having some O pain yesterday and this morning, which I'm taking as a good sign as I didn't have any last cycle!

I think my chart will look a bit crazy for the next couple of weeks.  I offered to help out someone in their business which means I have to get up at 6am on Mondays and Thursdays for the next couple of weeks.  First temp this morning (at the earlier time) and it was very low!  It does coincide with O, but I'm guessing that hour earlier is probably dropping it a bit lower than usual.
