How is your testing going?

After you ovulate the progesterone in your body increases and raises your basal body temperature slightly. If you did in fact ovulate your temps should remain high until you start your period or if you are pregnant they remain high. I actually did not ovulate last week, even though I had three days of high temps, my temps have been low ever since. I was taking a break from my OPKs when I thought I ovulated but I will be back on them tomorrow morn. I have decided to only test with FMU. I hate holding my pee later in the day and I always feel thirsty.

Been getting BFNs everyday...as expected! I'm really anxious to find out. I would be really bummed if I didn't get a BFP, however there would be one upside to that this month. We're taking a work trip next week and there's usually a lot cocktail parties during this specific trip, so at least I could partake. We leave on Tuesday so I *should* have a definitive answer by then as I would be 14dpo then.

I've read some interesting things on the forum about O'ing, e.g. it's possible for it to appear that you're about to O but then you don't and then you actually O a couple days later. I also read that it's normal not to O 1-2 times a year. I'd never heard that before! Hopefully your in the former category this month! Are you guys still BD'ing EOD?

We are doing pretty good at EOD and if not every third day. I also use pre-seed every time just to be safe. four weeks till my OBGYN follow up, I really need to have a game plan. I like to control everything that happens in my life and this is driving me insane! I also am new to temping, there is a small percentage of women who don't have BBT shifts but are still ovulating, I could be in this category but since I am not turning OPKs positive and have no EWCM I highly doubt that.

I am looking forward to my tropical vacation in 6 weeks! I am not temping or OPKing during my vacation. If I am not pregnant at least I can enjoy drinks and zip lining!

Keep me posted on your testing!

I'm very Type A myself, so I totally understand the whole not being in control thing. It's really frustrating to do everything right and still not get a BFP! Not to mention all the waiting for positive OPKs and then HPTs...it can be maddening!

Please keep me posted on what your doctor says. The vacay will be a great way to get your mind off the whole TTC process!

AFM, I think I'm 12dpo today (though could be 11-13dpo) and still getting BFNs. I'm not sure when to expect AF as my cycles were a little different each month, averaging 32 days. Going off a 32-day cycle, I should get AF by tomorrow, Jan 11th. We'll see!

Any updates???

I had a small amount of EWCM yesterday and this morning. It wasn't a lot but is was the first time things felt different down there so I am really excited that something has changed. I am back up and running with OPKs so hopefully I will get an LH surge or my temps will start looking like I have ovulated.

Got more BFNs today and no AF. I noticed a small amount of VERY light brown, more like tan spotting when I wiped this AM so I put a tampon in thinking AF was going to start. But nothing since then. Not sure what to think. I'm pretty convinced I'm not preggo but just wish AF would show up so I can move on!

So random question that is a bit TMI...when you get EWCM, does it come out all them time or just when you wipe? I've been pretty dry all month except for a couple days of EWCM but only when I wiped. Wasn't sure if that was 'normal'!

Good luck--hopefully you get that positive OPK soon!

Hi 2ducks, how's everything going?

While I was on my business trip, I got very faint lines on ICs and confirmed last night when I got home with 2 different types of digitals! I got my bloodwork done today so I'm praying for good HCG levels. I should find out tomorrow or Monday. The lines on the non-digitals, including a FRER this morning, are still pretty faint so I'm nervous that I'll have another CP.

Looks like I'm back on the TTC journey again. All my tests are now coming back negative--digitals, non-digitals and ICs. I don't have my blood results back yet but I'm sure they'll show the same thing. I wish I knew what was causing this. This is so frustrating. I haven't started bleeding yet...just wish it would start so I can begin to move on.

I am so sorry...how incredibly disappointing. When do you get your blood results? I highly recommend you start charting so you can determine the length of your leutal phase and exact ovulation date. Charting can really help some women know what their issues are. Some women have short luteal phases which makes it nearly impossible for fertilized eggs to implant so they pass, there are supplements that can be taken to strengthen the leutal phase. Also, read up on low dose asprin and ttc/ early pregnancy.

Hugs and take care of yourself this weekend!

As for EWCM. I had to go looking for it, and only had small amounts. I have never had large amounts like some women do. I always use pre-seed just to be on the safe side.
