Have either of you watched The Great Sperm Race (). I keep going on about it because it was an eye-opener!

Also, if you are interested, here are pictures of the cervix in different situations, stages in life: http://www.beautifulcervix.com/cervi...tos-of-cervix/

Our body is beautiful and here's to hoping we can each get to experience the miracle of birth!

You sound a lot like myself, must be in the NY water

My husband and I are TTC for#1, and it being our first time trying... we were a little carried away with the BD! Guessing that I ovulated on the 8th (LMP started 11/24 - 28day schedule), we "went to town" all last week. I guess I would be going on 4dpo. The 2WW is terrible..and its my first time calculating!!! Yikes.

Best wishes on BFP's this month!!

EMandPATRICK - I know you are responding to uadreamybabe, but I wanted to tell you that I am excited that it's you and DH's first time TTC & waiting. I'm totally in the same boat...although, instead of continued excitement, I caught myself telling DH just now that I don't think it's happening.....

I'm very new to this so remind me when you will test? I think my test date is either 20th or 21st but just realized I'm on a journey on the Amtrack to my in-laws for Christmas on the 21st...aaaaghh...

to you...

I am testing in right before xtmas. My period should start on the 23/24 so if doesn't I am testing. Hopefully it will have enough hHG to pick up.
I'm in the 2WW period too now and its crazy but I don't want to think about it too much. Just enjoy it, have some more sex for you this time and hope for the best =]]]

to you...

Thank you for responding.. and I'm excited for you too! As for telling your husband you don't think its happening, you have another 10 days. Implantation might not have taken place yet! Every women is different, and every cycle is too, have hope! I should really be taking this advice for myself, I just caught myself questioning ovulation of a week ago. Before my FMU today, I noticed CM that almost looked as if I were ovulating. Now I'm anxious wondering if I should go purchase an ovulation kit. But if I was correct last week, it would just be a waste of $$. My LPM was 11/24, with a cycle of 27-28days, so ovulating on 12/12 would be a little late, right?

Anywho, I started testing with FMU on 10miu tests already...giving myself a baseline for later this month (if I do start seeing a line). Amtracks have bathrooms right? hehe.. bring a test in your purse, and sneak away! Either that, or test right before you leave, and the day after your arrive.

I wish you the best of luck this month, I hope we get BFPs for Christmas

uadreamybabe : Your symptoms sound very very positive to me!!! I'm hoping what you saw is IB! I'm already getting excited for you and hoping to hear of a positive BNP when you finally

EMandPATRICK : If your LMP was 12/24 and you have a 27-28 cycle then your fertile days were on Dec. 6 & 7, so Dec. 12 sounds a bit late. However, like you said every woman is different, and we can guesstimate as much as possible but our bodies can react in any which way in any particular month. Hopefully you BD'd as much as possible before, during and after. Like uadreamybabe mentioned, now we can just BD for ourselves. I'm planning to at least every other day until I get my periods.

Mine (to mention yet again) is a 25-36 day cycle - irregular (went off bcp's Oct'10). My LMP was 11/19 and fertile days according to the irregularity were between Nov 29-Dec 10th. My plan was to BD daily or at least every other day between there, or for the entire month, but was off on a trip between Nov 30-Dec 6th. However, BD'd Nov 27, 28, 29, 30 (hoping sperm lived for a bit!), Dec 6 & 10th. DH is in his 'finals' week for school so he leaves early and doesn't get home till very late - school is done on the 14th. I have no idea when my nextMP is due...usually get sore boobs...but nothing yet! Had some symptoms that I don't want to read into especially because don't want to get our hopes up and because they don't fully exist everyday!

I have not used OPK at all this month...I'm waiting to buy OPKs and Preg. test strips that someone mentioned were available on Amazon for $9 or so...if it doesn't work out this month!

P test strips: (http://www.amazon.com/Wondfo-Pregnan...4470347&sr=1-2)

OPK: (http://www.amazon.com/Wondfo-Step-Ov...bxgy_hpc_img_b)

Unfortunately I haven't paid too much attention to CM etc. Not temping either.

Going overseas to visit my parents/family in January (Dec 31-Jan27) with DH so not sure what we are going to do - just hoping for a BNP!

Sorry this turned out to be an essay...

Smile181c: Thank you for joining. Hope you get your heart's desire as well.

EMandPATRICK: PS: You made me laugh about checking in the Amtrack =) I don't have too much $$ to waste and currently have just ONE preg. test so hoping to check as late as possible....which may be the day we arrive 12/21 (if I can't wait) or the day after we arrive 12/22! And till then hoping not to see the

Hoping not to go too crazy...too many people on here have been trying unsuccessfully for too long which makes me feel sad and hopeless - yet I'm still grateful for this forum! So, trying to remain positive!
