Where abouts in your cycle are you guys lerp?

Bullsbabe: I'm 4dpo! when are you testing?
Well according to my charts, AF supposed to come 8th of October, which leaves me with a luteal phase of 9 days (to which I have read that it's not impossible to conceive with such a short phase, so FX'd) so I told myself if I'm a day late (which will then be 10 dpo) I will test! Any strange symptoms for you??

Maybe this helps

2WW = Two Week Wait. This is the period of time between ovulation and
when you can test. For a lot of us peestickaholics, a one week wait is
more accurate.

AF = Aunt Flo (aka your period, aka your nemesis)

BBT = Basal Body Temperature. In fertility charting, this is your
temperature when you first wake up in the morning. Before you even move
an inch - don't even blink your eyes.

BD = Baby Dance (sex). OK, it only saves us one letter to use this acronym.

BFN = Big Fat Negative (peestick test result)

BFP = Big Fat Positive (peestick test result) Baby jackpot!

CD = Cycle Day. CD1 is the first day of your period. Ovulation often occurs
around CD 12-16. When TTC, your mood and what you are doing with
your free time is often dependent upon your CD.

CM = Cervical Mucus. The wetter and stretchier, the more fertile it is. Not
something you ever thought you'd be talking openly about on a message
board, but when you're TTC you gotta pay attention to your CM.

CP = Cervical Position. Reached for and pondered by many, understood
by few. CP is a fertility sign sometimes used by women practicing fertility
awareness.

DH = Dear Husband

DP = Dear Partner

DPO = Days Past Ovulation. Used in the tww. As in "I'm 3 DPO, can I
POAS yet?" (Answer: "You can always POAS, but at 3 DPO a BFN is
inevitable.")

DTD = Do The Deed, sex

EPT = Early Pregnancy Test. A brand of test where a blue cross means
you're knocked up.

EWCM = Egg White Cervical Mucus. This is the fertile stuff that shows up
just before ovulation.

FMU = First Morning Urine. Liquid gold for peestickaholics.

FRED = First Response Digitals.

FRER = First Response Early Results.

FRRR = First Response Rapid Results. Sometimes mistakenly
purchased rather than FRER due to similar packaging. Test results are
fast... but compared to FRER, you have to wait five more days before you
can test.

hCG = Human Chorionic Gonadotropin. The sought-after pregnancy
hormone that turns ordinary peesticks into BFPs suitable for framing.

HPT = Home Pregnancy Test. Everyone's favorite kind of peestick.

IC = Internet Cheapie. A low cost peestick (which has to be dipped in a
cup rather than peed upon) favored by many frequent pee'ers due to it's
low cost.

LP = Luteal Phase. The second part of the menstrual cycle - the time
between ovulation and AF.

O = Ovulation. The "big O" has a different meaning to TTCers.

OPK = Ovulation Predictor Kit. Although people generally use OPK to
mean a single test,they are typically sold in large multi-paks (or kits) as it
usually takes many days of peeing on OPKs to get a positive.

POAS = Pee On A Stick. Peestickaholics consider peeing onto anything
other than a stick to be a waste of perfectly good urine.

SMU = Second Morning Urine. FMU's underrated cousin.

TCOYF = Taking Charge of Your Fertility. An often cited book in TTC circles.

TTC = Trying To Conceive (a baby, that is)

TTW = Two Week Wait. (see 2ww)

Only creamy cm. Which make me test today. Pointless though it's funny how TTC makes you have thr power to hallucinate lines that aren't there.

And lol, I only Learned one thing from that list, TCOYF

Apparently AF is due on the 14th... Aaaaaages away! were all young so hopefully very fertile, so lots of babydust to us!

I do love the explanation on this one:

POAS = Pee On A Stick. Peestickaholics consider peeing onto anything
other than a stick to be a waste of perfectly good urine.
