Jchic, it's hard to tell. My guess is yesterday, but we won't know until we see what temps do from here. I know - the wait for cross hairs is agonizing.
Yes, love my high temp today, but think it might just be the progesterone cream - it can elevate temp, just like your own does. Really hope I'm prego, but a lady on the progesterone cream thread totally thought she was - she went from a 9 day LP without the cream and now she is on 15 DPO and no AF - and BFN. So, I'm pretty sure my AF will be late this time around and not sure how I feel about it. On one hand, I WANTED a longer LP, but on the other hand, if I'm not prego I just want to get on with the next cycle. Not sure what to do about the cream, if I should keep taking it and when I should stop (probably will have to stop in order to get AF).
Girls do you think I should wait and test on Christmas morning? It would be so magically and special to get a bfp on Christmas morning...but on the other hand I don't know if I will make it that long, lol!! I'm debating on Christmas eve, or Christmas day. DH really does not want me to test on Christmas morning incase its negative. I don't know what I should do
Oh and jchic...if you think you've o'd already put in some dummy temps for the next 3-4 days to see where FF will drop your crosshairs. You can always remove them after...if your itching to see where they will go
Cre8tiv - Definitely test on Christmas Eve I think...that way if its negative (which I am hoping it WONT be!) then you will be OK on Christmas and not too upset. The kiddies and Santa need you to be HAPPY on Christmas! xoxo
Daisy - Did the doc prescribe the cream? If not, maybe you should stop taking it so it doesnt screw around with your cycle too much? I dont think you have an LP issue. My LP is 11-12 days too. I just dont want it to mess up your cycles at all in case it causes your horomones to go wackadoo. BUT either way, you are prego this cycle so you can throw the tube away or keep it and thank it in the AM when you test for giving you a longer LP which prob made you PREGOOOO PANTSSSS
Pregopants! Never fails to crack me up. I don't know, I don't know... Cream was not prescribed. It is a topical cream, not a suppository. Some people (most docs I think) think it is too weak to have much of an effect but some women swear by it. From what I've read it can't hurt, and the only downside is that it mimics pregnancy symptoms so it can give you false hope, and that AF might not arrive until you stop taking it. I'm waiting back to hear from some of the other ladies who take it if their temps start to drop before AF or stay high. I'm hoping that my temps staying high right now, a few days before AF is a really good sign, even with the cream. I was just mulling it over in the shower (best place for thinking right??) and I think I will wait until Monday to stop. At that point I will be 14 DPO, which is a nice LP - perfect if you ask me! If I am BFN that morning, I will stop the cream and let my body's hormones do what they do.
In other news, when I wiped this morning, it seemed like my CM (still scanty and sticky) was slightly tinted. Not pink pink, or brown, but just not completely clear/white/yellow. It was like every so slightly browny-pink. Like... a warm ecru? :-) I keep wondering though if it's only the lighting in my bathroom (warm lighting). I will check again at work - those harsh fluorescents don't lie! It could be a) - more implantation spotting, b) - typical preAF spotting, or c) totally in my imagination!
Creative - you CRACK me up girl! You keep waffling back and forth on the test date. I love it. A woman after my own heart. I'm waffling too. I say, do what feels right! If you are genuinely worried you will be heartbroken at a BFN on xmas and it will affect you that day, then don't do it. Do it the day before or even the day after. If you think you can rebound then do it!
Ahhh...I can not wait till the 26th...I would die before then So the 24th it is!! If its a bfp I want time to wrap it up and put in under the tree for DH anyway. He thinks I am still testing on that morning so he will probably know before he opens it but oh well.
