I feel like using opks is an art form... one I never thought i would be so good at...
Thanks. That really made me feel less like a goof for being so...anxious, I guess...about it. I felt the same way, always scrolling by it on my way *back* to the TTC board. Ah well. I'm starting to feel more excited/anticipatory about TTC so that's a nice change.

I'm with you on the opk thing. I've never tried but I can just tell it's something that would drive me nutso.

Re: TTC After Loss Thread

I definitely check out my old dd boards! Not strange at all

re opks: Yea for me they're usually stark white until about 3 days before O and I get a light pink line. My surge is super short, ie I got a pos yesterday mid morning and it's negative already this am so barely even 24 hours. Back when ttc my second I got several days of positives. Some cycles I haven't gotten a positive at all but still had an ovulatory chart from temping. Opks are just something for me to do lol and they've never been hard to read.

This is so true. I am glad we can support each other in the ups and downs we all experience on this journey.

Re: TTC After Loss Thread

I have been using the cheap LH strips, but I wonder if it is worth it to get some other tests like the Clearblue Digital Ovulation ones. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/AS.../chrisficti-20

Are they worth the price?

No... it wasn't!! I got a squinter on the 31st and started lurking about in hopes that it was the real things. And now the tests are nice and dark. And yup. February. February 9th according to FF but I disagree. I say February 10th. Why? Is Feb special to you? Or even better... are you going to join me in the Feb DDC????!!!

P.S. Here's yesterday's test....



And I was wondering... what sort of supplements/meds will you all use during pregnancy post loss? This is my 3rd pregnancy (the first two ended 6.5 and 10 weeks). And I'm currently doing new chapter vitamins + folic acid. And I ordered welcome womb but that won't arrive for two weeks (I live on the wrong side of the world)

RunawayBunny: I think I might have missed the window to take the ovulation predictor but I am not very good at them

abhernandez: YAY!!!! So so happy for you mama Now send some of that baby dust over here. I usually take prenatals and welcome womb...if it helps my welcome womb arrived before it was supposed to.

Alice- ok I'm not crazy then lol. Huge congrats!!! I'm in the 2ww so I would squeeze in with an edd of the 27th or 28. I think I actually o'd yesterday... A tad early for me! DH totally got some bug and had a fever tues night so our timing wasn't great. But perhaps a swimmer stuck it out a couple days. Also feb is the month I was due with my first loss so it would feel like coming full circle. I'm soooo happy for you. I will be doing Lovenox when I get a bfp (apa syndrome) so I'm foregoing welcome womb since I have a diagnosis. Just a prenatal and maybe extra folio acid.

Trinity no idea about the digi opks sorry! I was just reading some threads on ff where they gave false positives, probably rare though.

Thanks Heather. : )

Well I tested LH and HCG again today, both are still positive, but HCG is much fainter than when I last tested 2-3 days back. And I think I stopped bleeding from the loss already. : ) I can't wait for my cycle to get back on track so we can try again.

Re: TTC After Loss Thread

Okay so I got something going on, either preggo or a BIG AF coming soon. With my last pregnancy only about a week after conception I was mad at DH all the time for no reason at all and super tired (caffeine could NOT begin to touch this fatigue). I feel the same way yesterday and today so somethin' is a brewin'. Since this is the first cycle after the m/c I am using days we were together as counting days to test so I have a couple more days to go if we conceived on the first time, I am only 13 days right now. Everyone keep your fingers crossed!
