Morning! Happy start of the weekend everyone! Temp went up a little today, but still not enough to imply ovulation... *bangs ahead against a really thick brick wall*

Those lines will come tomorrow Pep I'm sure of it!
Whats everyones weekend plans?
CD 22 for me so nothing to report TTC wise

I hope so Dolly! I'm going to set my alarm for 7 just to make sure it is accurate. Last 2 Saturdays I've done it when I've woken naturally - 8.30 and a 7.45 one, and as you can see on my chart, its made a difference! I need to remember as well that this is my first time temping, and I'm still mastering it - some days I've been awake and gone back to bed for only 30 minutes before taking my temp (would have taken it 30 minutes earlier but sometimes don't realise how late in the morning it is when I get up for the bathroom...black out curtains!). So my chart probably isn't as lovely and accurate as it should be. How many DPO do you think you are now Dolly?
Weekend plans - not a lot. Driving myself crazy thinking about TTC I'd imagine! I just want to know I'm capable of doing it, if someone told me "don't worry, you will be able to get pregnant naturally" - maybe I'd be a bit less hung up on it all? I bet everyone feels like that though? At least no.2 will be easier for us eh?! Lol! Have you got much planned Dolly? x

Pep - Definitely going up and you will get the cross hairs tomorrow i shouldnt wonder.
Dolly - weekend is a mix of first aid courses, seeing family, cleaning, swimming, shopping and general shizz. Im so very tired and would love a lie in, but got not hope of that this weekend, boo hoo. Hope you have a good one.
AFM - I got a flashing smiley this morning on the CB stick, yay, so im turning into fertile myrtle, or fingers crossed i am. I woke up at 4.30 and had to poas whilst fumbling around trying to open the packet as i thought i needed fmu. Ive decided im going to try not to drink anything after 8pm so i dont wake up at silly oclock needing a wee. Cant keep testing at that time, else i will be shattered all week.
Hello to all who follow and good luck to those dtd this weekend :-)

Vikster - When I've tested quite early (although I often use second morning too and have always had similar results - what difference does it make if I haven't drank anything between FMU and 2nd?!) I just dipped it then left the stick and read the result when I got up properly. When you eject the test stick the result comes back onto the display screen.

Pep, I'm not sure to be honest!! Maybe 3? I'm not really sure when I ovulated!! Not knowing actually makes me feel a little less crazy about being in the 2ww..... however in 10 days time I may not be sounding so calm!
Vikster, sounds like you have a manic weekend ahead, will you be seeing your donor in amongst everything else?
We're having a bit of a party tomorrow evening, H made some homebrew so we decided it was a good excuse to have people over! Also a good distraction for me!!

Thank goodness it's Friday!
Pepperoni - really hope you get the crossed lines
Dolly - hope the 2ww stays unstressful for you
Vikster - hurray for flashing smiley at the right time
Afm, cd14 and another negative IC OPK last night. DTD anyway though. Does anyone else get totally blank opks in the run up to ov? Mine just show the control line, no other faint lines at all. Then last month I got one strong positve, then straight back to totally blank the next day... hope this doesn't mean I'm not actually ov'ing.
Weekend plans, off to see Jason Manford tonight, then my parents are over for the weekend. They live abroad so is lovely to catch up with them. Will also be nice to have a weekend off from doing DIY!

Lola - I get a mix, they go from light, to darker, to darker, to lighter, to darkish, etc!

Puts her hands up! It's my first month using them and so far I haven't even had a sniff of a test line. The control line is there so I know the test isn't dodgy, but nada for the test line. I hope one day I get a nice juicy positive, otherwise I'm giving them up as they're stressing me out, I was only using them to conform what i thought I already knew about CM and OV etc. Grrrr to opks
I have been told with several people that I asked, that some people don't see any line at all until a positive.

Pepperoni - I hope your temp rises tomorrow!
Dolly - Your party sounds good have a great time, great way to take your mind of the 2ww
Vikster - Yay for the smiley!
Lola - I don't use any opk so I don't know. I went to see Jason Manford a few years ago he is so funny, have a great time.
Imp - opks do sound stressful!
AFM, I think I've got ewcm today which is good timing for the weekend ;-) quick question though, does ewcm mean ovulation that day or is it sign it is coming a few days after? I know I should know that!
I think I am going crazy with ttc already, just logged on to the boots website and clicked on the pharmacy and health tab but my mind read it as pregnancy and health! I think about it way too much!
Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

Pep: I really hope you get a positive soon, I'm afraid I know nothing about temping. Ttc can drive you crazy & you know I thought ttc for no 2 would be easier but I'm not sure that it is! take care x
DollyP: Enjoy your party & the homebrew!!
Vikster: Yeah for being fertile!
LolaB: Hope you get your positive soon, are you testing once or twice a day? I've had fainter & darker lines this cycle but then 2 days of +. Hope it all goes ok with your parents this weekend & enjoy the show tonight
Lulu: I think I usually get ewcm for a few days before ovulation & the day of ovulation but I'm not good at remembering to track cm! & I think we all share in the ttc craziness
AFM: It's CD16 for me & I ovulated today (have horrible period pains which are not fun) & I got another positive opk this evening. I'm not sure how long to carry on dtding as I don't want to miss an opportunity!! Visiting the inlaws for the weekend so glad I ov before I visit them! Enjoy your weekend all x
