    I'm so sad (though not suprised), :witch: showed up this morning along with a temp drop to coverline. Today is 18dpo. I actually temped 4 times before I would believe it had really dropped and was willing to get up to go check for AF. I had really been hoping. :sad1: On the brighter side, my other symptoms are magically gone... feel good today, not tired, no upset tummy. Was all that psychosymatic???

    So now I wonder... On my first c after stopping bcp, I also had a LP of about 17 days and was convinced I was preggo (other symptoms like this month, too). My other LPs have ranged from 10-12 days. Usually 12. I'm wondering if on these two cycles, it just didn't stick. However, I did have several :bfn: tests. But I can't think of any other reason for the LP to vary so much. Has anyone else had varying LPs? I know they are supposed to be pretty consistent. :?

    I think this month I'm going to try the CB Fertility Monitor. Does anyone else use it? Is it worth the mega $$$??? I'm also going to have DH get checked. No reason not to. And I think I'll keep my Nov. 4th appt with doc to ask about this LP variation. He said he wanted to consider a cd25 test in Nov anyway. Might as well make sure all is good.

    Thanks in advance for any ideas!! Baby dust to all who could use some!

    I don't know much about this all yet (I'm learning) but I didn't want to read and run. Hopefully you get your BFP soon :hug:

    Before you get a fertility moniter have you tried OPK's? They're a bit cheaper.
    I'm sorry I can't answer your question as my LP has been regular (for the 2 months that I have been charting temps...)

    Yeah, I've been using OPKs since c1 of trying. :witch: arrived today to start c6. OPKs seem to correlate well (except once) with my charts for when I O. However, I am a bit of a type A and the more I feel like I can do to increase my chances (translation = have control :rofl:), the more I can relax and enjoy the ride. Sounds backwards, I know!

    That is why I was wondering if they are worth the cost... I'm not sure it will make that big of a difference. However, I have heard a couple of ppl say they helped them to realize they were missing fertile days by a couple of days, which makes all the difference!
