That is strange FF is predicting AF tomorrow. That'll only be an 8 day luteal phase. Do you usually have really short luteal phases?? At this army it certainly could just be implantation bleeding. Though I had spotting on 8dpo last month which turned out to be AF on it's way a couple days later . I hope you have a better ending than I did! Without knowing what your normal cycle is like I cN't help much. Even then weird things happen to cycles now and then. Your temp is still up which is a great sign!! If it's still up tomorrow morning I'd go ahead and test. But if your temp takes a nose dive then you might not want to bother.

The last couple of cycles I have had a short Luteal phase of 7 days and 8 days...
Im hoping it is just implantation but like you said the temps are promising! So here's to FX!!

Re: TTC 30+ 4-10 Dec

Ugh, I'm so bummed today.
A good friend of ours just announced they are pregnant with #2.
My temps make no sense on my chart to me this month compared to my watch and I'm just discouraged at only 4DPO...

If pregnant - your temp shouldn't drop although some people get an implantation dip for 1 day. Lots of people get triphasic charts - where your temps go way high after implantation - but that isn't always the case. As long as your temps aren't dropping, it's good. Hoping your spotting is just implantation! Any reason your LP is so short? Have you had progesterone tested?

I know all about those mixed emotions - being happy for someone, yet wishing it was you who's pregnant. I *think* it was your chart I glanced at on the previous thread - it doesn't really look like you have O'd yet. I don't know how the ovu-watch works, but are you sure you O'd?

AFM - woke up at 5am to mind-blowing cramps. Got up, saw there were only 2 ibuprofen left (not enough for my cramps!!), so I took those + a tylenol codeine left over from an old prescription. Forgot that the codeine makes me nauseated, so I laid in bed for the next 30 minutes writhing in pain and trying not to puke.

I think I might have a UTI. I have kinda the same symptoms I had over the summer when I had one - pain on my tailbone when I (sorry TMI) have a BM. I'll see if it resolves in a couple of days, but I so don't want to deal with that again.

My DH was off work all last week (involuntarily) because his project is between buildings. He just found out he probably won't be working till at least Wed this week. There goes our Christmas! Not to mention $ to pay the mortgage, too. I am SO SICK OF THIS. Can something please go right!?!? He is filing for unemployment right now, just in case. He'd be headed to North Dakota already if it wasn't for Christmas coming up - obviously we want him here for the holidays. Come January, he's going to ND. (Carissa - is your DH still thinking of heading out there too?)

I'm just so frustrated with everything. I look around and it always looks like everyone else's lives are going SO perfectly, at least compared to mine. Why is my life always in shambles? Ugh. I just want to go cry!!

Thanks for listening Hope you all have had a better weekend than me!
