Re: TTC 30+ 12/21-1/4 come on holiday babies!

Oh Becky I hope I wasn't sounding discouraging! I was just sharing my story. I know the whole30 works for many, it just didn't for me. The main reasons are about the same as your reasons. I make too make excuses and with no flexibiltiy in my diet I over endulge. Finding what works for you is key to success! You can do it! BTW, I loved the whole30 salad with cauliflower, artichoke hearts, olives, baby bok choy and some other goodies. I can't remember the name of it right now but Oh yeah, it was good!

oh it's ok, im sure you meant well...just that i've gotten a LOT of "whoa i could never do that" and "why in the world cant you eat beans?!" ...and way more people being skeptical than supportive...and they're all acting like it's a FOREVER thing more than a reset which is what i feel i sorely need to get my butt into gear...and i mean. it's only 30 days. i also plan to start ww in the midst of this so im already on plan when the 30 is up...anyways...

on the positive side, a few of my friends have actually joined my hubs and i!

afm: i keep getting phantom baby kicks...all cycle long, actually...totally weird.

I think I O'd early, but I didn't get a +OPK at all.
I did have very good quality EWCM on CD7 and CD8, on CD9 I still had some EWCM but not as stretchy as the other days. Today(CD10) my temp went up from around 97.20 to 97.73 and my CM has dried up...
All the signs are there, BUT MY OPKs WERE ALL NEGATIVE!!!!

ETA: I just took an OPK and it is lighter than yesterday's OPKs

Karina, how often were you doing the OPKs? Did you miss the surge?
