how are you all? Has anyone gone crazy yet in the 2ww? My temp erode again today and I would of put money on it dropping!!! How is everyone else doing??
13/06/2013 at 08:08
That's a very interesting looking chart you have there. I don't temp so don't fully understand but I've seen enough charts and conversation around them to know this looks good. How long is your LP normally???
AFM - first day of my new user name. Feel quite comfortable with it already!!!! I'm off to work now boooooooooo. Started ic opks yesterday even though I said I'd start today. Naughty!!!!! Cracking open the CBD's from tomorrow morning so that's something to look forward to. TMI - cervix is high this morning so it's all going the right way for ov soon. Fingers crossed.
Hi to all that follow xx

woop woop for your cervix haha !
i love the purple clear blues, they take alot longer to process but they are so much more advanced than the pink ones, so its worth it!
my LP ranges from 7-13 days normally, so its hard to say ! although normally by now it would start dipping !
13/06/2013 at 08:43
moonie - if i were you i'd have tested already!!! That's a very promising chart!! When are you going to test??
CO - don't blame you for opening the OPKs! Hoep work is ok today
AFM - first day of using CBFM, exciting! It gave me a low which is fully expected at CD6 but it was fun to put it to work. I won't ov until end of mid-end of next week i shouldn't think but it'll be interesting to see how long i get highs for. Off baby swimming with P this morning and then out to a friends for coffee and toddler tea.

im going to be using a CBFM next cycle so im really interested to see how it goes AR. please keep me updated.
i did do a test but it was the biggest BFN you have ever seen lol not even a hint of a shadow or evap or anything :-(

Hi guys. 9dpo (not 10 as I thought) and BFN this morning on IC which I excpected. When I got my BFP before I test BFN at 14dPO so I've decided to just stop testing!
Still got cramps but boobs not hurting as much as they were. The wait continues....
Loving the new name CA!
Monnie I'm excited about your chart but you knew this already haha!
AR good luck with the CBFM
Love to all x

Morning all, don't temp myself but my inner control freak is loving the chart and I am wondering if having something to do each day ( baby making related ) would help. Certainly no expert but all looks good monnie, fingers crossed you have just tested a bit early.
Am quite jealous of those of you at the start of cycles as having struggled this cycle trying to interpret ovulation signs I have bitten the bullet and ordered some OPKs, it is quite sad how excited I am about peeing on a stick! Am lusting after a cbfm ( if you can lust over something you wee on!) so very interested hearing how you are all getting on with them.
7dpo here, quite a lot of cramping and having never really listened to my body before I have got no idea if this is normal for me or not. Feeling slightly more relaxed today ( as the most laid back person ever I cant believe how upright the 2ww has made me feel so far)
Got a quiet morning a work then this afternoon I am taking a friends fantastic 8 year old daughter out hacking so looking forward to that.
Hope those that are waiting get smiley faces very soon, and hope those in the 2ww are hanging in there.
Happy Thursday and hope you are all starting to plan lots of lovely things to do at the weekend.

Morning beautiful ladies!
Monnie, I'm loving your chart! I reckon a live POAS is due on the weekend for you....please? :) ...and don't worry about the BFN today, it's probably just too early
Choc Apple, you naughty thing, you! Yay for your cervix though! I can't wait to crack out the CB OPKs! Still weeks off for me though but I'm tempted to go a little early with the ICs like you, but probably not until next week.
AR, how exciting to use the CBFM! I hope you enjoy baby swimming; that's one of the things I'm actually looking forward to being able to do most, oddly enough. I think babies are so cute splashing about in the water when they're little but I reckon I'd be scared stiff at the same time!
Heya Rod, 9dpo is probably just way too early lovely so step away from those tests! Remind me again how long your LP is?
AFM, I'm surprisingly dapper considering how broken I felt last night! H wants to do the run again so I think I have to start getting used to this running malarky :s I'm nowhere near ov'ing and I'm definitely not pg, but I'm getting really odd twitch-like muscle spasms in my lower abdomen for the last week or so - anyone else get these? I've never had them before so it's quite strange - feel a bit like an alien is going to come bursting out! :)
13/06/2013 at 10:13
Sorry pinkpanther, took an age writing my post and missed you! I totally get you lusting after something you pee on :) Keep on feeling relaxed lovely, I don't know how you're doing it, but keep doing it!
13/06/2013 at 10:47
Morning gals, last day of the working week for me today, woohoo!
Monnie, I'm liking your chart a lot! I would love to chart myself but I'm always in too much of a fuddle when I first wake up to remember to take my temp every morning. FX you just tested too early x
CA hurrah for a high cervix!
Ooo AR I'm jealous! My CBFM is all ready and waiting for me to kick it into action. I'm excited! Enjoy your day.
Rod, snap, I'm at 9dpo too. Not testing (for a little while) is the way forward.
PP, glad you're feeling more relaxed today.
GOM really hope an alien doesn't come bursting out of you!! Glad you're not feeling broken today, I used to love running (before I knacked my knee), it becomes addictive!
AFM, 9dpo. I had some quite strong cramps last night and some wicked heartburn this morning when I woke up. All signs that AF is on her merry way. I'm not testing unless AF is actually late, which will be around Tues/Wed next week. Really tired today and feeling a bit meh. Glad my weekend starts tomorrow!
Hi to all who follow
13/06/2013 at 11:30
GOM I think its about 13/14 days x
13/06/2013 at 12:51
I see, do you think you'll be able to resist testing on the weekend or will you wait for AF early next week? I've everything crossed that she doesn't show!
13/06/2013 at 12:53
I'm keeping everything crossed for all the 2ww'ers!
PP - i chart for that exact reason. I am a complete control freak and i LOVE having something to do each day. I did it for 2 cycles when TTC last time and got BFPs both times, trying to to assume that'll happen again this time.I love it though as you can see how your cycle is going and know when you ov. The fertility friend website is great for explaining how it all works and i use the free version to track temps, i don't pay for the extra stuff. Definitely worth a look into if you think you'd enjoy having more to do.
GOm - baby swimmign is fab. Not scary at all as it's just nursery rhymes in the water and spalshing around so you are holding onto them all the time. P managed to slip over in the change rooms today and hit her face on the bench. Toddlers are MUCH scarier than babies as they are constantly trying to injure themselves!!
13/06/2013 at 13:02
Oh no AR, I hope she's ok?! Yes, I guess once they've found their feet, they're a whole different ball game! Bless :) I want one!!!!! (well, obviously!)
13/06/2013 at 13:28
Monne - I have no idea about temping but it's good to see an example of a chart - good luck!
CA - new name woo hoo! You've made me hungry with that pic ...
AR - Hope P is OK after her bump, they are so resillient at that age. Enjoy messing with the CBFM and here's hoping for a lucky month with it. We'll all be trying to pass it around ha ha
Rod - Fingers crossed for after the weekend - probably good for your bank balance to wait to test but fingers crossed
PP - Enjoy your hack later and fingers crossed ths symptoms are pg realted - I'm the same as soon as I start taking notice all sorts happens!
GOM Well done on the running, and only a few more weeks left xx
Figaro I'm always so jealous of your weekend starting early! Next week could be exciting ...
AFM still not much to report, felt a few twinges and boob pain but nothing as strong as last month and that turned out to be AF! I realsied Hubby is working late tomorrow so I won't see him till Sunday so I'm going to try and be good and not test until Monday if AF hasn't arrived - that'll eb CD31 and would be my longest cycle since coming off the pill.. I'm at my Mum's all weekend with no tests so can't be tempted ha ha!
13/06/2013 at 14:58
I'm going to try and hold out til I'm late.
I use the word try loosely.
13/06/2013 at 20:25
Well I did my usual ic OPK when I got home from work. I'm all set to start my CBD's tomorrow and guess what???? The OPK was positive!!!!! I backed it up with a pink CBD AND a purple CBD so it seems fairly conclusive. I've never ov'd at CD17 before so this is all new to me. Might be a false alarm so I've DTD with H and will keep OPKing from tomorrow but not sure what to do about the CBD's now.
AR - yay to finally starting the CBFM!!! Hope P is ok after her slip today.
Monnie - sorry to BFN.
Rod - sorry for your BFN too,
PP - best of luck on the 2ww - half way there!!!
GOM - go you with the running!!!! Sorry, not sure what the twinges could be. Maybe just your ovaries gearing up??
Figaro - fingers crossed for you lovely
Grif - hey Mrs. Hang in there with the 2ww
13/06/2013 at 20:33
Oooooo Yay to a positive OPK! That means you will ov in the next 24-36 hours so make sure you DTD tomorrow too, just to cover all bases!
