Still totally confused as to whether I've Od or not. I'm cramping today, but cervix is medium/hard not squishy soft anymore, but feeling very wet (it's creamy though). I'm so annoyed, I feel like I almost dried up in what was supposed to be my fertile days. I wish I hadn't run out of opks!!!!
Ah,ok, it can seen time consuming but once you get the hang of it, you'll see how much it helps you. Takes the guess work out 'when will I ovulate or did I ovulate?' ..lol. You temp dips down which is the first indicator that it is going to ovulate, then the next day or two your temp will be higher than your AF days.

But its all up to you

Just keep bding up until cd 18 to be safe.

Ftale, way way too early to O so I chalk it up to the room being colder I had that on one stupidly long cycle if I remember rightly, lots of temp tanking way low then spiking and tanking again, we'll see, if I miss this month I guess it's a sign I should go ahead and get my wisdom teeth out lol

Fingers crossed your temp stays up, I'm rooting for you!

FX, I think temping or OPK's (or both) are the way to go, we conceived DS on the first cycle I used OPK's back in 2013, I was missing O day each month before that

Disney I didn't know that. Man, were you bding too soon or too late before opk?

My temp went down from 98.50 to 98.34. It was up to 98.50 for one day only anyway. Before that 98.34.

My heart rate is so calm. I keep reading about how it should be higher if pregnant. I'm at 59 or 60 while resting than anywhere from 70 to 100 if I get active.

Do you track hrt at all?

FX: How are you feeling today?

Who knows Ftale, I was stressed out about Aiden's tooth that cycle, thank goodness it was fine, kid gives me the worries something terrible when he hurts himself

Temp is hovering low so I'm guessing it's just the room temp affecting it, changed to camisole type pj tops so the bare arms probably has something to do with it too. I do track RHR when I remember, I tend to only track my late night ones as they're true resting when everyone but me is asleep, l do love those few hours of mummy time alone lol... binge watch everything you can't when Aiden is awake hahaha, but yeah my Resting HR is around 62-65 pre-O, 72-80 post-O it stays up until the night before my temp dips from what I've noticed

Disney: WOW, so maybe I'm not Oing like I thought. I don't recall my rhr being any different. I'm going to look at the app and see if I can look back at it. I don't remember if I wore it before AF started.

I like mommy time too!! I like watching my channels with out have in LOOK at this every other second...HAHAAH

Interesting to read about heart rates, I just always forget to take it!

I'm ok, really cramping still and a lot of cm. It does feel like cramps I usually get after O, so I'm hoping it's that so we stand a chance this month!

Ugh. Time for bed. How do you prepare yourself for a bfn. I'm cramping hard in the front like earlier in my cycle. My whole body feels like it does prior to AF.
I test tomorrow. FX

Hi, I'd like to join!

DS1 was born in Oct 2011. I went onto depo injection at my 6 week check up. Stopped when DS was 18 months (was meant to have a shot then but never did). We ntnp for 6 months then actively ttc'd for 2 years after that. Nothing happened. Not even close. Not even a maybe. Just nothing.

Gave up and decided we were meant to be a 3 person family at the end of 2015 (all the ttc was making me crazy).
Sold all our baby stuff during the course of 2016. Felt much happier for it, like I could move forward with life. But towards the end of the year started having doubts about whether calling it quits really was the best thing. I never went back on bc and dh hasn't been using anything, so it was ntnp in the truest sense of the word, although we were aiming to avoid fertile times (not always successfully).

Then late April this year I got a surprise, totally unexpected bfp. To say we were both shocked was an understatement. But I very quickly grew thrilled with the idea and I can honestly say I haven't been that happy in a long time. There was a great big spring in my step and everythign just seemed great again.
I mc 1 week later.
Spent the whole of May spotting and basically waiting for everything to end fully.

Bring on June and some positivity and my first cycle after the mc and I am now rearing to go and hoping to get another bfp nice and soon.

I know we've sold everything, and I know in some ways it would be better not to have another child, but my heart aches so strongly for one and I really really really think it is what we need. I've never seen myself with only one child, and even after deciding to give up on ttc I felt like something was missing. So I'm giving it all I've got in the hopes we get a sticky one. Not sure how long I'll ttc, as it made me pretty crazy last time, but for now I'm going for it.
I'm currently CD7.

Welcome "Huggles"

I'm horribly sorry for your loss. It is devastating to go through. Well, you are in the right place. We are in it for the long haul. Hopefully the haul will be shorten for us sooner than later though.

And you can stock up on baby things again
