ok, I'm 8 dpo today... I want to test so badly, but I don't want to waste a first response, I only have two left. Friday I will be 12 dpo, so I'm going to try my hardest to wait until then... I wanted to show a progression of tests like some people do... if I am pregnant... but I'm scared to waste the tests, first response is not cheap, even with all the coupons I use.

It's so tempting isnt it!? If you have 2 left, maybe do 1 at 10dpo and then 1 at 12 dpo? that breaks up the wait a little!

Ugh. My temperature dropped some the past two days.

Stay up, little temperature! Give me hope of a triphasic pattern!

I've been experiencing so much cramping and fatigue that if I'm not pregnant, I'm going to be rather annoyed. I can live with not being pregnant, but I shouldn't be getting all these cramps throughout my luteal phase.

Your temp is still well above the cover line! Still looking good I think. Do you usually have cramping like this or is it a new symptom for you?

Those tests really are expensive. I just ordered a bunch of Wandfo tests off Amazon so that if I ever actually ovulate I can pee on sticks to my heart's content without spending a zillion dollars.

It's new. I had a Mirena from July 2009 - November 2012, and during that time I barely experienced any cramping at all. Prior to getting the Mirena, I would get cramps in my lower back for 1-2 days before my period, and then the first 1-2 days of bleeding. After having the Mirena removed, I experienced very light lower back cramps for two weeks afterwards, but I would usually only feel those a few times a day.

These cramps are dull but I'm experiencing them in the front in my abdomen, and they're here pretty constantly throughout the day. It's like a tightening, pinching sensation.

I'm cautiously hopeful.

Hey! I'm hoping to jump in with a question.
We are going to be TTC #3. I've always charted my months/days and has worked great for us. But after my daughter my cycles have gone wonky. I've been using opks for months now and never had a problem. I want to start temping this month. Today is cd7 and AF just ended last night. Tomorrow I planned on starting to temp. Right now we wake up at 7, but my sons school schedule may be changing and we might have to start waking up at 6. Would changing the time I wake up make a difference in my chart? Or since its just an hour it shouldn't make a difference?
I'm also not all too knowledgeable about temping. What kind of patterns should I looking for? I think I saw that it dips before O, and before AF. But stays high if pregnant?
Sorry for the questions

Hello!

If you wake up everyday at 6am then it wont make a difference, if it changes between 6-7 then I would imagine that might make a slight difference. I take mine between 6-7 though also. There is a temp adjuster on FF that lets you adjust your temp depending on what time you woke up. (For those odd occasions where you woke up late etc).

Patterns to look for are basically as you said, generally lower temps before OV/day of Ov and then high temps until AF is due. It should stay fairly high if preggers. Also something to look out for is an implantation dip, which can sometimes happen where temp dips really low if implantation is happening!

Hope my muddled reply helps somewhat!

Has anyone here taken soy isoflavones to aid ovulation and know how many mg of it you should take and what days are best to take it? Thanks
