Ah, sorry ARTISTCAT. emoticon

What a small world MRSDROP11, I bet his favorite movie is Groundhog's Day! JK (I myself have heard that one a lot)

No worries, we will get there. I met a very, very sweet nurse at my doc's office that said her and her husband had TTC on and off for 10, yes TEN, years before they had their daughter! Her advice was, of course, DO NOT give up! She said even though it was, at times, very agonizing and discouraging, her daughter was worth every minute of it and then some! She is so glad she kept trying! This was her experience and I thought it was inspiring and should be shared.

And I'm out too :-( No early b-day present for me this year. I guess I will be able to have my wine this weekend after all.

See you all in February!

Happy (early) Birthday, ladies! My DHs birthday is also the 2nd but we won't know for at least another week past that whether this was miraculously our month. Keeping my fingers crossed for you, ARTISTCAT.

Wow that's funny. Hope you have a great birthday too! :-)

A little update here: I have been feeling nauseous since yesterday and the cramps I had on 8/9 DPO (I thought AF was on the way) are totally gone now. A little strange, usually the cramps are there until AF arrives. No I can't stop wondering if it was cramping because of implantation. So I'm getting a little excited now. I should have (had) my period sometime between yesterday an tomorrow. If nothing happens today, I'll be doing a test first thing tomorrow morning.

That would be a great present! Coincidentally my birthday is February 2 emoticon Turning 30! It's actually one of the reasons hubby and I finally decided to start TTC. So, I guess leaving my 20s behind isn't such a bad thing after all. I've got so much to look forward to! Hope you have an excellent birthday and maybe a little surprise present as well! emoticon

Sorry to hear you're out TAYLORLANEY3. I'm 11 DPO now. Have a feeling AF is on the way, but you never know... Feb 1 is my birthday. A BFP would be a hell of a b-day present :-)
Keep you posted!
To all of you who are out: wishing you the best of luck for February and sending baby dust your way!

Good Luck ARTISTCAT! I'm at 10dpo but I'm trying not to get my hopes up. Those BFN are hard to take. AF isn't due until Monday but I usually start spotting today, but there is no sign of that so far. I have had weird cramps since last night though (usually don't get cramps until full force AF, so Monday). I keep going to the bathroom to check but still nothing! Trying hard not to be too hopeful, but I can't help it! I just know AF's just around the corner taunting me or something. Thinking about testing tomorrow if I still have the 'all clear,' even though I know I should wait until at least Monday.

Hi all, Sorry to hear you're out LMSWEBNET!
I'm still in. 6 DPO to be exact. We didn't time BD very well this month, but we'll see. It's only my 2nd cycle TTC, so if it doesn't happen this month, maybe next. I'll keep you updated!

It has been an interesting first month of OPKs. I finally got a negative OPK today after having 4 positive days in a row. My darkest test was day 3 positive. I decided to get FF ap and it says day 4 positive was my O day. I think it could have easily been day 3 OR 4 though. I had ov pains on day 3 and very slight cramps on day 4. Also, I am fairly certain day 4 I did not have EWCM. Either way, I feel like I may have gotten the timing right this time, which makes me feel much less stressed even if its a no-go this month. It is really close to when I thought I ovulated. In the previous months I think we may have stopped BDing too early though. Feeling good about this month though! emoticon

So sorry Malissa and Abby. Its always a disappointment. High hopes for 2014 though!

Well, LMSWEBNET, so far I have had 3 positive OPKs in a row. I had EWCM leading up to and including the day of my first pos OPK, but after that I've had a hard time telling because of the BDing. Today I am having ov cramps so I think today might be the day (pos OPK day 3). I will keep testing though and see how it goes. I will keep you posted! Good luck everyone!

I started using OPK strips this month too, taylorlaney3. I used them a while back for a couple months, but not long enough to figure out how accurate I think they are. Mostly I just wanted to make sure I was ovulating at all. I've had some issues with my cycle the past few months so I'm using them again to help figure out what's going on. I'm comparing the OPK results with CM tracking to try and pinpoint O within a day or two so I know when to expect AF. I had a positive OPK on Wed and Thurs of last week and EWCM for a few days before that, but not those two days. Fertility Friend assumes I O'd the day after the positive OPK, but I don't know for sure. I hope it goes well for you, and I'd love to hear what you think about it.

I'm sorry to hear you are out Malissa. This can be so frustrating!

I got my first post partum AF on Friday. DS will be a year on the 21st, and we are officially actively trying again. I've been charting symptoms for a while now because I've become totally anal about fertility signs since going through infertility. According to my chart, it may actually be my second AF. I had some spotting about 30 days before I started my period, and I had some EWCM about 15 days after the spotting (DH, DS, and I were all sick with the world's worst colds, so there was no BDing happening), and 13 almost 14 days after that, I got my period. With my history of amenorrhea, I'm pretty darn excited about a seemingly normal cycle, and I hope it continues, or I get prego!

If hunger isn't the problem, then food isn't the solution!

I started using an OPK this month to make sure I was ovulating when I thought. I just got a positive today so I'm feeling more confident with my timing than in the last couple months. Has anyone used these? I know it says, on average, that you should ovulate within 24-36 hours after the positive. Just curious about others' experiences with these and how accurate they are.

When I was pregnant with my daughter I had spotting similar to that in the very beginning. It freaked me out a bit because it was after I already knew I was pregnant. Turned out to be nothing wrong and now I have a beautiful 10 month old. So I guess I am saying it could go either way at this point. I wouldn't rule out a BFP from that. I think a test is still in order if your period doesn't show today. (For real show, not just spotting).

Well, not sure what is going on.

Will maybe test tomorrow when I get home from work (15DPO). However, what has me confused is that the last two evenings, I have had some -TMI warning, mildly heavy spotting. By this, I mean, a clot or two, red when I wipe, then nothing in pad. I mean nothing. Not throughout the night, and yesterday not throughout the day. Not sure if this is pre-period spotting or implantation. Considering my work schedule, not practical to test today or tomorrow morning.

Any input?? Confused here.

I'm in for Jan 2014, but I'm still waiting for my fertility to return since having my son, who will be a year old on the 21st. I had EWCM and a positive OPK on Sunday the 29th, so if there is any truth in that, I'm 8DPO, however, there has been no BDing for the past week and a half due to a killer cold wreaking havoc on our household. We will see what happens in about a week.

9DPO today. Turbo hot last night and this morning. Not trying to read too much into it, but hopefully. Should know in a few days. Good luck all.

Here's to a great new year filled with blessings! :)
I'm 8dpo & looking forward to testing in a few days. We have been trying for three months since our second miscarriage (13 cycles total since July 2012).
I wish you all the very best!
