Good luck, Malissa! My husband got sick on Christmas Eve, so I dropped him off at home on the way from northern MN to IA. It's been a busy month, but am hoping we can relax and concentrate on getting pregnant in 2015. Good luck to any of those who are still hopeful!

Got a nasty Christmas present this morning: AF showed. So I'm officially out. Again. Trying to stay sane during all the family meetings. See you in January.

Congratulations, Karly! What a wonderful memorable Christmas present.

This is our last month of not trying too hard. I've been gone and life has been crazy, so it's all well and good except it's sad knowing we don't really have a shot this month. We'll see what comes from appointments with an RE next month or whenever we can get in.

Good luck to those still in for December!

Home from my surgery. All went as planned, Dr thinks the fibroid is the reason we have been failing to get pregnant. On to recovery and then hopefully parenthood in the near future.

Welp!

AF just showed up, 5 days late. Ugh.

I'm glad to know one way or the other, even if it was a BFN. Now I can plan my 30th birthday trip to Las Vegas! Haha

Onward to January. Good luck to those of you still hoping for December BFPs!

Ireadyermind -- It is so hard not knowing. Wish we could just magically know as soon as we conceive!! I have some clearblue weeks estimator and 1 Wondfo and don't want to waste them either otherwise I probably would of POAS already.

AF is now 3 - 4 days late. Expected it on December 13th or 14th, and here I am. Got a BFN this morning using FMU on a Wondfo dip strip. I'm considering getting some FRER sticks this weekend to try, if AF hasn't shown up by then, but I'm trying to hold out because they're EXPENSIVE, and I know that once I have them, I will use them all up. lol

I wish this would resolve, one way or the other. If AF shows I can make birthday plans and keep working on losing more weight. If BFP shows, I can adjust my diet, make appts, etc. But the NOT KNOWING thing is driving me batty. @.@

On DPO 8 and feeling nausea, and very tired. Hoping I am not getting the flu or sick and that I am pregnant. Too early to test just holding on until at least monday, If i don't get af by then I am late. Really hoping this is the month! Kinda weird but if I am pregnant this month the baby would be due on my dad's birthday (not that it would necessarily be born that day).

Eight, yes 8, phone calls yesterday to assure I had a ready prescription of progesterone this morning. Yeesh.

Work has sucked since the new coordinator. Just worked 40 hours in three days. No idea why or how I'm awake right now.

Coworker thinking she might be preggers, had three eggs this cycle, so we would be due around the same time. That would make his job (if he can hack it that long) a little more interesting.

Best of luck Ireadyermind! And Happy birthday tomorrow!!! I am on 6 DPO and still just hanging in there to get to a day that I can test. My temp has been going up too which I am hoping is a good sign, and will be testing sometime next week if my af doesn't show (crossing fingers).

Today is officially one day late for AF (and either 13DPO or 18DPO depending on which app you ask). My temperature around AF is about 98.4, maybe 98.5. Today was 98.8 and has been climbing a few days? I know temps don't mean all that much except as an indicator of ovulation, but it's hard not to wonder what's going on in there.

I'm trying to hold out on testing for a few more days, but I'm officially past the "two week wait" and I really hope it doesn't turn into a "four week wait"! If AF or a BFP would show up so I could stop fussing, that'd be awesome. Haha

This is an HPT accuracy chart from the Bump:

HPT Accuracy DPO
10 dpo : 35%
11 dpo : 51%
12 dpo : 62%
13 dpo : 68%
14 dpo : 74%
15 dpo : 80%
16 dpo : 88%
17 dpo : 92%
18 dpo : 99%

That's general, and not for any specific brand, but you get the idea.

I've moved on to hoping for January now. CD1 sucks.

Tests seem to work best depending on when you expect your period. My luteal phases are shortish (before first miscarriage they were 10 days, went up to 12), so testing on the day I was due worked for me. If your luteal phases are longer, waiting is probably beneficial.

WARMSUNSHINE56 - Sorry to hear about that. :( Remember not to push yourself too hard after surgery! Letting your body recover is exhausting work!

ARTISTCAT - Congrats on the new job! Maybe it'll be the sort of pick-me-up you need to be less stressed over TTC.


As for me... Still waiting for AF. Should arrive within the next couple of days, if not today. But if I don't get anything by Tuesday the 16th (my birthday!) I'll do another HPT.

Fertility friend says this is 17DPO and the other app I use says it's 12DPO. So if I wait til Tuesday, then if the second app is correct, I'll be at 14DPO and that's when a test should really work best, right? Plus it'd be two days after AF was supposed to show up. My CP is all over the place right now, and my temperature was climbing, dipped down, and today is climbing back up again. I don't know what to think! Haha

Thanks all. So sorry to hear about your news Sunshine. I hope your surgery will go well and you'll be able to conceive after!!

Yesterday I went to a Yoga Fertility Workshop. I found it very interesting. Lots of info on energetics, food, yoga, acupressure and lifestyle/cycle in general. And just in case you're curious, the sequence they taught can also be found online:
www.ekhartyoga.com/video/yoga-and-ch
in
ese-medicine-to-enhance-your-fertility

(you'll need a subscription or buy the download to see it).

Looks like yesterday I finally O'd. Need official confirmation with at least 3 high temps of course, but I'm quite sure. AF/test date will be the day after Christmas. Hoping for the best Christmas present ever!!

Baby dust to all!

Congrats on the new job Chris!! So sorry warmsunshine about your news but as Gwenn said hopefully you will be able to conceive your baby faster!!

As for me I am still just waiting to see what happens at the end of the month. I somehow managed to lose 3.9lbs this week even though I was not exercising. Just eating well and not feeling like working out. Maybe this will work next week too but not counting on it. Really need to get back into working out!

So sorry for your loss! And also congrats on the job!

I heard back from my Dr yesterday. I have a fibroid tumor in the lining of my uterus. I should be getting a call to schedule out patient surgery to have it removed. He feels it is the reason we have been unable to conceive.

Glad to have some answers but still bummed about all of it. Not sure we'll be TTC this month depending on when I have the surgery.

Thanks Gwenn and Karly. I'm OK though. We will travel to my family this weekend and stay there until the funeral on Monday. It will be good to have some family time.

On a positive note, I got the job!! I'm so happy about it. It feels great to accomplish something now that TTC takes a little longer than expected. I really needed something to feel good about.

Chris sorry to hear about your grandmother. Sometimes when they are old and not well it is better for them to go to a better place. That is how my family was when my grandpa died and my great aunt. They lived full and great lives as i'm sure your grandma did!!!

Good luck on your ovulation!!

Sorry for all of you who are out! Looks like I missed a lot of info.

I have been incredibly busy lately, working, helping my brother-in-law finishing his bachelor's thesis, and the application process for the new job (had two interviews and I'm waiting for the end results today). On top of that my grandmother passed away yesterday. It's OK though, she was very old and she hadn't been well for quite some time. I'm glad she was in my life for so long.

I'm on CD16, had a positive OPK yesterday, which is kind of late for me. Probable due to all the stress. Waiting for O.

Good luck to those of you still in!

Sorry to hear so many of are out for the month already. On to starting next year out right and it seems like we might have a lot of vacation babies! I am in the horrid two week wait. I am already ready to pee on a stick (i know it is way too early) and hoping and praying that we got the right timing and will be pregnant. Trying not to think about it and just taking it one day at a time.

I'm sorry that everyone is out :( I'm sure I will be out because our timing was horrid. I will say that I did not spot from 2dpo like I have the past two cycles, but I was doing it today and I'm at 8dpo, so I'm getting close to my threshold of AF arriving, unfortunately. So maybe it will be a Disney baby ;)

I'm out too.

Called the Dr to see what's next, and he was out for the day. The nurse did let me know that what ever he scraped out of me last month was benign, although I still don't know what it was (polyp? Fibroid?). I'm supposed to get a call back tomorrow to see if I'll be on meds this cycle and when I go in next.

It's getting harder and harder to be hopeful. I'm just struggling with the wait.

I'm out for December. Just a 28-day cycle this time, which was unexpected. AF came at work on Monday, and I left that afternoon for a work trip. It was a bummer not to get my usual, "It's ok - we'll try again next month" hug from my husband when I needed it!

Thanks for all the good thoughts for my sister and nephew. They were both discharged yesterday and are at home as a family now! I'm not sure when I'll meet him in person, but it's a relief that they are home.

Good luck, Karly! I'm going to Atlanta for work tonight and will be back tomorrow. If AF doesn't show up on this trip, I might test Wednesday morning. I'm getting impatient!

My nephew was born on Friday, but is in the NICU. He had mecronium aspiration and an initial APGAR score of 1. Scary stuff! His second APGAR was 6, and he seems to be improving and doing well. My sister has some sort of infection now, though, so doesn't get to see him much. That would be so hard! The same thing happened with my other sister and nephew: hard labor, followed by a week in NICU and my sister being unable to breastfeed. Hopefully I can break the streak if we get pregnant!

Got my positive OPK yesterday. Lucky it was on the weekend as my husband and I work different shifts and don't really see each other much during the week. A lot of BDing this weekend. Still gonna try to get some more BDing in during the week just to have extra chances.Hopefully this will be our month to get pregnant. Suppose to get my period around xmas, it would be a great xmas gift!!!

We took our honeymoon to Jamaica. We loved Dunn's River Falls. It was fun! Hopefully you have a waterproof camera!

Gwenn- I'll be in Orlando, Florida in January! When are you going?

Rachel, When we were in Jamaica we did the Zipline and Dunn's River Fall and had a blast. I was so scared to do the zipline but in the end I loved it. We actually did a zipline on our last cruise too! In Cozumel we did the Ancient Culture Mayan Ruins and island sightseeing and loved the tour. This one wasn't really as active because you are on a bus seeing the island but we had a great time! I'm sure you will have a great time!!!

Aww, I've never been on a cruise. They sound so fun! DH has been on one before and they had a blast. I don't remember if they did any excursions. Probably not. It'd be pretty awesome to spend some of these winter months in warmer climes, IMO! I hope you enjoy it!

KHCHARMED1987, we are planning on doing excursions, but I'm not sure what yet. I am definitely more interested in the active ones though. We like to do a lot of stuff when we go on vacation. This will be my first cruise ever so I am pretty pumped.

Funny how even when I think I'm going to be calm and relaxed and not worry about whether or not we conceive this month, during the two-week-wait if there's even a hint of a chance, I get all anxious and hopeful.

Hope is a good thing, but frustrating when I won't get an answer for another week!

Rachel, Those are great places to visit on a cruise!!! I was just in Cozumel last monday! Are you planning on doing excursions?? Good luck on that cruise baby!!

Now that we are back, I am working on getting back on track and working out and eating healthy. Started eating healthy today and going to start working out tomorrow!! Not going to weigh myself until tomorrow because I am afraid of how much i gained on the cruise. So much good food. Although I did mange to workout in the fitness center a few times and we picked excursions that were physical instead of sitting around! Hoping i didn't gain to much and can easily get back to were I was before. I also decided that if I started taking my temp at the same time everyday It will work better for charting. I set an alarm for everyday and have been taking my temp and then going back to sleep until I need to be up. We will see if that helps with charting!

In for this month, again.

Starting my doctorate officially in January.

Just going to focus on fitness. And not being depressed thinking about the fact that I could totally be taking adorable Christmas pregnancy pics right around now.
