Abbi took a look at the tests don't think there is a + in there, but you still have heaps of time! btw what are those plastic ones called? don't think we get those here. I use internet cheapies and close to O may buy the kit with slightly better quality strips from chemist. i so want to go get some softcups too but can't find them and too late now to order them for this cycle, might get them for next if i dont get my bfp that is!

I am so close to O can just feel it! cp is high, soft and open tmi according to ff that is a good thing! we have been bding every night just to cover bases. Still waiting on that + opk!!

GL and Fx'd girls,
I dont remember what the plastic ones are called haha i know i got them from rite-aid. Softcups you can get on ebay for like 6 bucks so if you want them for next cycle you might wana order now lol.
Thats good hun. Ive been having such bad sharp pain in my lower abdomen i think i might be O' to because my temp was 96.70 and it was 98.60 last time. still -opks but im still going to bd everyday incase
and the pic was taken by my phone so alot of the lines you cant see, idk why but my phones camera sucks haha.
gl fx'd you get it this month hun.

Ohh ladies i think i have some good news...
since my ph leves are off i figured O' wont show on opk's[which is why i didn't really want to use them] but this morning and afternoon i got really dark opk's.
Here's image of them

We've been bd'ing every morning since about cd5[just to be sure we didn't miss any chance of the fertile window or O'] So im feeling pretty good about this cycle so far.
my temp dropped way low too, not that it means anything but im even having O pains and stuff as well so i have a feeling i am or will be O'ing soon
we'll just keep using preseed and softcups.
Ill keep you ladies updated on more

Ooh Abbi I'm pretty sure that one at the bottom is a +, looks nice and dark, but again can't be 100% sure from the pic.. Keep Bding for sure!
Af is still not here so keep fx'd Bumblebee, thats so sweet about your mum awww bless her!

Haven't told my mum don't want the pressure and she may try to talk me out of it, my mums like that! but i'm pretty sure when it happens she will be over the moon! I've told my dad and brother and some friends and there all very happy so atleast i can talk about it with them. Really sucks tho coz mum and I are actually very close and i'm making excuses not to see her in case i spill!

As for the Robitussin i'll just copy and paste the article from the internet....

Hostile cervical mucus
Having thin, slippery, cervical mucus – the kind you see right before ovulation – will increase your chances of getting pregnant. Some women naturally have plenty of fertile cervical mucus. However, women that do not notice thin and stretchy cervical mucus or have very little of it around the time they ovulate, might have a problem with hostile cervical mucus. To diagnose hostile cervical mucus your doctor would need to do a post-coital test which would allow him to see the type and quality of cervical mucus you are producing.

Women that are taking Clomid often have problems with hostile cervical mucus. Clomid blocks cervical estrogen receptors. Estrogen is involved in the production of cervical mucus. When estrogen receptors are blocked, your cervix doesn’t get the message to start making fertile cervical mucus so instead a woman on Clomid may have dry or hostile cervical mucus. Since the goal of taking Clomid is to help a woman get pregnant, the side effects are counterproductive. In order to make sure that the Clomid is as effective as possible, your doctor may prescribe a low dosage of estrogen or suggest that you take Robitussin.

How does Robitussin improve cervical mucus?
Robitussin is an expectorant, which means it helps thin out the mucus in your lungs. This helps with coughing because it is easier to clear the mucus out of your lungs when you cough if the mucus is thinner. What’s nice about Robitussin is that it doesn’t just work on the mucus produced in your lungs, it also helps thin out cervical mucus. Thinner mucus is better for sperm and may improve your chances of getting pregnant.

When should you take Robitussin?
The best time to take Robitussin is about 5 days before you expect to ovulate and also on the day of ovulation. If you are using OPKs (or ovulation prediction kits) continue taking until 2 to 3 days after your have had a positive OPK. The recommended dosage is two teaspoons taken orally three times a day.

Ok so the Robitussin has worked for me I think as I now have watery CM (tmi) but side effects aren't really worth it so will stop it, feel i'm just messing with my body now! ok so side fx are gas and the runs! tmi again! so be wary guys if you decide to use it!

It's my Oh's 36th birthday today (im 27) we just went into town and i bought him a new skimboard (kinda like a surfboard) we are very into our extreme sports (also both skateboard and surf) never too old he reckons! can't wait till we can teach our kids this stuff! awwww getting soooo clucky!!! come on O i need this baby!!!!!!! ok done with the rant!!

I think it was too
We've been bd'ing every morning from cd4 or 5 so we shouldn't of missed not one single fertile day or O' day. And for the past 3 days i was having a stabby pain in my left side[something i've NEVER had before] so i was thinking last night maybe the eggy was dropping and it was fertilized just at the right time, because i had BAD gas last night[and kept feeling the need to use the but everytime i'd sit on it, nothing would happen!!], my df was even like "babe, really?"
So only time will tell, but i have a feeling we did it..
I dont even have parents around to tell haha, my dad lives far away and my mom abandond me when i was 16 so i dont have to worry about telling my parents, only df's but we decided not to tell anyone that we are ttc because of my age, they will just down talk to me and try to talk me out of it so were just keeping it between us until lovebug sticks, than everyone can know we tried and he/she IS NOT a mistake
Im glad to know what the stuff does but i think im already trying enough this cycle
speaking that we spent over $150 on supplies this month[3 tubes of preseed, 2 boxes of softcups, 2 boxes of opk's, & 2 boxes of hpt's] hahahah.
At least it did some good though and you didn't totally waist your time or money on something not helpful:]
LOL!! there is no tmi while ttc xP
everything about it is tmi really lol, we just feel comfortable telling eachother because were all doing the same stuff so we know we wont get weird talking about it like we would if we were telling df,dp,or dh hahah, when we try to explain things to them we try to give them the "clean" version of ttc
Awwhh!! thats cute:]
hope he has a good birthday, get to bd'ing woman!!
at least you can say its his present that way
I know what you mean, i need lovebug too!
hurry hurry hurry bfps!!

goodluck hun, fx'd for you and bumblebee

@bumblebee:Awh thank you hun!!
ive been keeping my fx'd for yours as well.
lets hope it'll pull through
@lolalei3:How are you buddy?!
having any symptoms yet? did you O'? because i did on cd14..are we still cycle buddies?
oh and how was your dp's bday? hope it was grand
MyRannt:I cant believe how many times we've this cycle lol.
Ill be so frustrated and agitated if it didn't happen.
here's a pic of my recent opks

Okay so just from seeing this picture we all know i O'ed in cd14, on cd15 i did another opk in the morning it was really dark, but than at 5pm on cd15 i got -opk i tested again at 9pm still got another -opk
This is whats convincing me to think we conceived this cycle, because i didn't even O' for 24 hours..
I will be testing again today just to be sure they weren't false negatives or something.
and we are still going to bd every day/every other day
The only signs im seeing so far is cramping and bloatedness. Im still having cramping but its not sharp like it was 2-3 days ago now its only achy and it comes and goes throughout the day. Yesterday i was so bloated df was even like "are you sure your not pregnant because it looks like your 4 months!" thanks for that babe, love you too xP
but he really did say that lol.
I hope lovebug stuck finally, if he/she did i will be ordering baby stuff really early!!! hahaha
