Scootie - wow that's great! How long are your cycles? It sounds like you definately ovulated!
I haven't really had a real cycle yet after coming off of the depo shot. I had my first "period" on the 16th but really it was just brown and light. But FF is saying I ovulated on CD 8 so I hope it is right! Got my first crosshairs today
Fingers crossed for all you ladies! I have heard that pineapple core thing too. Also I have heard to drink pomegranate juice from CD 1 to ovulation as it's supposed to help thicken your lining. I haven't tried these though.
Congrats on your first crosshairs! That's fab news Everything is going in the right direction!

OMG, I am having such a hard time with the sugar. I've been having trouble with my cycle, and I'm sure that all the sugar I eat has been contributing to what I'm thinking is a progesterone issue. Even if it's not, I know all that sugar is awful for me. With the holiday season especially, it's been hard. Hang in there!! We can do it!
I had no idea that sugar can be linked to a progesterone issue. I'm definately going to keep an eye on that and do a bit more research about that. Especially as sugar is a major downfall!
So, today is day 3 of SI. I am taking 160mg tonight. I took 120mg yesterday and the day before and have been highly strung since then. My poor husband. It always has that effect on me but I just need to take a deep breath and think about what/how I am saying and no so snappy!!
Count me in, after a lot of discussions with DF we have decided to start TTC, slightly scary as we're getting married in 5 months! (It's just a small intimate family wedding so bump will hopefully not cause too many problems!)
Curious about SI...can you do this if you already ovulate on your own?
I have Polycystic Ovaries, although I don't have any other symptoms of it apart from cysts and long cycles. I started taking it because my cycles were all over the place. I must admit though, since i first took it earlier on this year, my cycles tend to be around 33 days long with O usually on CD19. I've carried on taking it anyway. I notice that I get tons and tons of EWCM with it!
