Fertility Friend Kelly, the website we all use to chart our temps and cycles. Click on my ticker and it will take you there. They do a great tutorial to help you get your head round it, it's free for the first 3 months I think and then you only have to pay to use the delux version. It blows your mind a bit at first but it's so good for tracking your cycles and finding out when you ovulate. I thought I ovulated on day 14. It's more like 17 or 18. Once you get used to it it's second nature. Give it a go!
OH has just left. He has to do an extra night away, so he is gone until Thursday now. I did get a little more EWCM last night, so was a bit more hopeful that maybe everything wasn't all over, but still no peak this morning. My temp was up a little bit, but not over the coverline. If I am going to ovulate this month, it better now be after he gets back, as the last time we dtd was Sunday night, so if I ovulate in the next few days we'll miss the egg. He was working late last night and didn't get in until 4 am, so unsurprisingly wasn't very keen to be jumped this morning!
Pink - look in my post history, it's the Feb testing one that she posted it in. DH has been getting on fine with the food, but he's already planning what he's going to have when he's finished lol!
Mrs Mig - I did wonder if it was something in the meal packs but it didn't come up until I was 2 weeks into it, so I don't know, plus if it was an allergy I'd have thought it'd be itchy. It's very odd.
Morning breath + garlic. Yuck!!
FF is free but you get a free trial of the VIP features for 3 months I think. I love that site! Especially the charting course. It's worth signing up for that alone.
I'm trying to decide my game plan for this cycle. I need to dig out my agnus castus and start taking them, and I've got my CBFM sticks ordered. I think DH wants to concentrate on the diet but I want to give these last few cycles everything we've got. I think we'll have to have a chat tonight.
I need advice again ladies. I've been having really bad cramping all morning, to the point that I've been struggling to concentrate. I decided to go to the loo and bear down to see if that'd help, because it has in the past. When I wiped afterwards there was a few dark clots like normal but there was also some greyish tissue that I've only seen/noticed when I miscarried. I checked in the loo and there was a lump a bit smaller than a broad bean in there. It was dark coloured though, not grey. My cramps have easied a good bit now but they're there.
ickle - I hope this is just a bad AF getting rid of some older lining. Before the erpc lst year I used to have bad cramps and really painful periods and had lots of brown clumps and dark red clots with very little red flow. Now I realise thet cramps were so bad was because of the passing of the clots so I am hoping this is the case with you.
ickle-i had same experience in my last AF.it was less bleeding and dark brown clotting and AF duration only 2days.that time i was on pregnacy pills(clomid).but this cycle it was normal red bkeeding and clotting for 3days.so dont worry its normal sometimes.
Well my cramps have died away to nothing now, so I'm guessing that I just needed to pass whatever the tissue was. I think I'll just put it down to an odd AF since I never had a BFP or even confirmation of ovulation. Even if I was pregnant, there's nothing to be done about it now so I'm going to believe the less painful option.
Ickle - I second what the other ladies say, its just your body clearing out, as gross as it is! ;0(
I just got a +opk, well as close to positive as I ever get, so I need to get on the bd mission tonight, I am soooooo tired and feel wobbly so not brilliant timing as the last thing I want to do is have sex, but time to soldier on!
Pinchi - any news on your ov get, did you do another opk later today?
