I've been having some symptoms that seem like good symptoms to have. Hopefully Its not just in my head, haha.
I should really look into a digital OPK. It seems like it would be so much easier.

Lingo translator pls :)


Ok, I've been doing some guess work.......

so "cycle" just refers to a regular menstrual cycle? (or not) I was beginning to wonder if it was some sort of medical-related term, like taking clomid or something (forgive me, I'm really not knowledgeable about this stuff).

Does "mc" stand for miscarriage?

Does "temping" mean temperature testing?

Is "DH" referring to husband?

I'm guessing that "opk" might mean ovulation predicting kit?

"O'ing" is ovulating, right?

And what about "bfn" .....and "AF" ........and "cd2" ......"BDing"...... "EWCM" ??

I feel a tad bit silly not being able to figure out this stuff...but I'll be thankful for any help I can get.

Cycle refers to the days of your cycle. The first day you have a "flow" is considered CD (cycle day) 1.

Yes MC is miscarriage, temping is temping your basel body temp every morning which I actually think people put "BBT" also for that

DH is Dear Husband
Opk is ovulation predictor kit
O'ing is ovulating
BFN is Big fat Negative (on your pregnancy test)
BFP is Big fat positive
AF is aunt flo
CD2 is Cycle day 2 (two days after your flow starts)
BD'ing is baby dancing (doing the deed)
EWCM is egg white cervical mucus (when your fertile or about to O)

Hope these help :-)

YESSS I swear by digital OPK's. The dye ones are horrible to tell and it's too much guess work. The digitals are very easy to read and there's no guesswork. PLus it gives you a heads up for when your fertility is "high" which means you will be at your peak in the next couple days. Then you just test until you get your peak sign. I love that it gives you a heads up and you don't have to guess so you can schedule your BD'ing better

That's great. How are you feeling, Brandy?

Tropical Doll, don't feel silly, I had to Google everything when I first set out on this adventure, haha.

Thanks for asking! I'm feeling ok. Still having very light pink when I wipe but nothing to be excited about. Have my U/S tomorrow and can't wait to get some answers. Got my levels checked today but don't know if I will hear back today or not.

How are you ladies today? What CD is everyone on and all that? Is everyone trying on there own? I wish I was in the TTC again but hopefully soon :-)

Haha yes they really are 100x better in my opinion than the dye one. Little more money but def worth it.

Well I'm cramping pretty good now. Which is awesome because it feels like a bad case of AF instead of one sided stabbing pain I have to look out for. In my heart I feel like all this is finally going to be ok

Way to stay positive Brandy!
I am on CD 24, hoping for a BFP on Thursday... I haven't really been feeling anything different, the only thing worth noting was on Saturday I woke up with a migraine, and ended up vomiting twice. It came out of nowhere, and since I've been just fine, not really sick or anything.

Keep your chin up you really never know. I didn't have many symtoms either before my BFP. I only had very slightly tender bbs and very creamy CM. That's really all I had and I thought I was out but that wasn't the case. I hope you get your BFP!!! If not we can be cycle buddies because after this I think in a few days I'll be on CD 1 :-)
