Trying to conceive

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend.
According to FF I am now 4dpo, with means we missed OV by a day. I am of course disappointed to have missed it, but I am however thrilled to see that I have actually OVed. I was worried that I might not be. As for the stupid CBFM, it asked for a tenth stick today, and spat out it's 9th consecutive high. It's not getting anymore now. I've kept today's and will just keep feeding it that.
In other news, our offer will be put forward on the house today (ours and everyone else's). We can afford to go a little higher, so all is not lost if they reject our first offer. Eeek!
Hi to all who follow, happy Monday x

Fig - sorry the cbfm isnt really working for you, and that you just missed ov, however exciting news on the house front, will keep everything crossed that they accept your offer!
6dpo here didnt temp this morning as had a few drinks last night and then a restless nights sleep as it was so hot.
Happy Monday everyone x

Morning Figaro :)
Great news about a confirmed ov, that must be a relief :) Sorry you missed the ov by a day but I'm glad you're taking the positive view regardless :) How exciting about the house! When do you think you'll here a response about your offer?
AFM, work is getting more and more complicated and it now looks as though I'll be leaving on Friday but whether I get paid for the rest of the month or not, who knows. Bit of an anti climax really and probably leaving under a cloud. By the looks of my temps I'm not even sure I've ov'd this cycle, but I guess as I only started temping again 8 days ago, I'll not know for sure.
Bit of a grumpy post from me this morning, sorry! I will try and keep my chin up :) Hi to everyone who follows x

Hey there Pinkpanther, sorry I missed you! Sorry you have a rough night's sleep but at least you enjoyed some bevvies beforehand :)

Figaro - is this your first month on CBFM? If so, it's unlikely to peak. It's a get-to-know-you cycle so it's really important you feed it accurate sticks. It's only after you peak you can feed it dud ones as then it reverts to standard settings I.e. peak, peak, high, bla bla bla. Mine didn't peak first cycle.
Stick with it. There's a great forum on baby center dedicated purely to CBFM chat. If you haven't checked it out, and it's archives, do. Good luck.

fig- please keep going with the monitor, all the reviews iv heard say it does this just for 1 cycle to understand your levels, then it takes it into account the next cycle so it wont read as high for so long.
PP- when are you testing ? any symptoms?
GOM- flash your chart hun , lets have a look
AFM, im cd20 and im ovulating today, we dtd yesterday and im hoping to pop home in my lunch break, although i wont have time to put my feet in the air :-(
iv had my peak on the CBFM and my flashing smiley on the CB OPK. thank you so much to inositol for helping me this cycle 1 im so grateful , i almost feel normal !

Here ya go monnie....

I would say you OVed on Weds GOM. Your pattern is a bit like mine with a drop and then a sharp rise:
Thanks Hollywood and Monnie, I'll be good and keep using the sticks. Just annoys me because I feel like I'm wasting them. Feel like I'm flushing £1 down the loo every morning
Hope everything with work sorts itself out GOM, and if you leave under a cloud who cares?! You're leaving anyway. Stuff 'em. x
PP, hope you had a good night! Hope your 2ww flies by with some fantastic news at the end of it.
Monnie, everything crossed for you lovely, I'm so pleased that the inositol is working for you x

GOM def ov on weds i rekon! fx
Figaro- yours looks good also ! what does your tming analyzer say ?
08/07/2013 at 11:58
Just nipping on at work so no personals until later! I'm CD4 so nothing exciting to report. Be interesting if the CBFM asks me for sticks from CD6 again this month. I ordered a box on friday so hopefully they'll arrive soon. Bloomin expensive so i hope i don't need more that the 2 cycles worth in this box!!!

Low. H was away for work so we couldn't have done anymore than what we did. To be honest, with H being away so much, I was kind of hoping that charting and the CBFM would show that we were failing every month because of timing issues. We can fix that when we're back together full time. It would be harder if I knew we were doing it at the right time every month but still failing.
I'm so relieved that FF has confirmed that I'm at least OVing. I know other stuff could play a part too, but for now I'm taking it as a positive.

Hi AR hope you had a nice weekend. I feel your pain re: the CBFM sticks!
08/07/2013 at 12:17
Thanks ladies, I thought it should be Wednesday too - when do you think FF will decide about putting lines in? I realise I haven't got a lot of temp data to work with here though :)
Fig, your chart looks awesome!!
Hey AR - I've got everything crossed that you won't need more than the box you've just bought too!
08/07/2013 at 12:21
Thanks GOM, I do love my chart! Haha
FF gave me my lines after my third consecutive rise in temp.

Hello lovely ladies I'm back!!
Figaro very exciting news that OV has been confirmed and that you've put an offer in on the house! As you say if you know it's a timing issue you can work on that when H is back - annoying he has to be away at just the wrong time though. What si the house like and whereabouts have you gone for?
PP yay for a few drinks - well deserved, I'm sure one day missing temping will be fine
GOM that doesn't sound good about work - anything I can help with? I work in HR so if you want to pop me a private message if not on here happy to help.
Monnie brilliant news! Also love the fact you're leaving work for a lunchtime quickie that is defintiely dedication. Fingers crossed for this month.
AR hello, hope the CBFM doesn't bankrupt you anytime soon and you get your BFP well before then.
Well AFM a few things going on, we had a fab week off - the day at Slaley was lovely and the weather has been gorgeosu so we've been out and about and pottering in the house. H left last night and should be arriving sometime today. I'll be able to e-mail and Skype him so will be absolutely fine but will obviously miss him loads and I'm looking forward to November already!
In term sof cycle I think I'm CD22, I have had a few sharpish stomach pains for the last couple of days but I'm probably reading too much into it. Would be very strange to get a BFP this month and have to tell H over a computer screen but we'd be thrilled, if it's not our month I'm going to start temping to try and get a good handle on my cycles for full on trying in November - H won't know what's hit him ha ha.
