Have fun with the opk's thurl, you'll have to put some pics up when you get your positives
must admit I've not had any af type cramps yet, maybe you're coming up to ovulation like you said. I really hope I ovulate over the next few days. I've had this really terrible aching\itching all over my arms and legs and after a trip to the docs he said it was down to stress - it's now all over my face so I really hope that doesn't delay ovulation for me. I must have used about 30+ sticks already!!!!
25th decemeber didn't feel like a special day at all, I find it hard to call it xmas day! I was close to tears when my cousin brought her 7 month old and 3 year old round and just spent the day wishing I was back in bed. did you have a good day?
To be honest, I was trying to forget it was xmas, that's why I keep forgetting to mention it to people because it wasn't at all special for me, sorry to hear you had a difficult time too, maybe 2012 will be our year xx
The itching sounds a nightmare, did your gp give you anything for it? fingers x'd it doesn't cause you any delays, I have used loads of sticks already, I have never had a positive test which is why I stopped using them last time, although last time I was using them first thing in the morning and the instructions on these tests say you shouldn't do that, testing for ovulation is alot more complicated than I realised!
Oh I was acting as if it wasn't xmas day, honstly if I hadn't I would have just cried and cried and cried all day long otherwise. 2012 WILL be our year, there's quite a few girls on this thread and if none of us get a bfp next year then we'll go to the papers, hehe. At least one of us MUST get there right??
Yeah my doc gave me some loratadine and cream, but the itching has stopped which is good, means I can stop the loratadine (it dries up cervical mucus). I've got a killer headache but I'm a bit weary of taking any medication as there's a teeny weeny bit of me which is wondering if the flu jab caused my loss.
Oh you should try the sticks throughout the day, you'll get better results. I think you're not meant to use them with FMU because you've got all the stuff from the night before in your first pee so it's not really a good indicator. Will you be sticking them to a piece of paper? I do that with mine, silly me put it on the table last night and it's now got oil around the edges ><
Bless you, I understand how you were feeling, but I'm with you on the 2012 thing and am hoping that more than 1 of us get a BFP during the year
I'm not doing anything with my test strips because after a while all of mine seem to get a second line on them, apparently you shouldn't look at them beyond 30 mins? I seem to get on better with them later in the day, but to be honest I'm not confident that they will work for me, just going with it to see what happens
You're totally right with the opks, best to look at them within 10 minutes of testing. If I had one wish right now it would be that we all get our BFP's this cycle and carry our sticky beans to full term (maybe some of us will have twins\triplets). waiting to ovulate is the most frustrating thing in the world!
The whole thing is nerve wracking! I'm going nuts waiting for AF! I just want to get on with it, ya know? I'm crossing my fingers that AF is normal and we can get back in business.
I hope that the new year brings all of us healing and happiness and most importantly sticky BFPs.
Hi Viking - have you ovulated yet? your temps look like it might have happened for you
Hubby says he doesn't want to over do sex this cycle as he believes overdoing it might be the worst approach. So I'm pretty much forced into POAS several times a day, hehe. Anyone else having fun waiting for ovulation? or any of you in the tww??
I believe I'm now in the TWW! Had 3 days of positive OPKs from the 24th - 26th. We BD'd every other day, as to not overdue it this time, so hopefully we caught our little Christmas egg and get our miracle.
Yep totally agree Tanzi, waiting to ovulate is proper frustrating, to be honest I have never been in tune with my body, I get no clues, or I have never noticed any clues anyway as to when I'm going to ovulate. I gave up with it and when we decided to start trying we just did the dance every 2 / 3 days for the whole month until I got my BFP, I did think at the time it was all too easy, I guess now I'm finding out how difficult it really is.
Fingers crossed for you viking, it is so frustrating waiting for nature to take it's course!!
Good luck to you tweak...not many more days until you can test
