Re: ATTS: Tuesday February 16

stupid internet...this is the 3rd time I've written this...maybe it'll post this time!

ANYWAYS!
I was able to get an apt yesterday and the Dr is doing blood test to see why I've been nauses, I go back in in 2 weeks for the resulsts so we'll see

AF was rough (bad cramps) monday but still hasn't gotten heavy just Medium flow but come to think about it it hasn't the last couple months either.....hmmm

any other mommas use the diva cup and AF is not heavy anymore?

sigh I donno.....

Man you girls are chatty today Quick ? about CM...does EWCM mean that you just Oed, are about to O, or you are Oing right then? I can't keep all this crap straight. I am having a hard time figuring out when I o'ed so I will know when to test, like a true ATTSer I don't want to wait till af is due Thanks ladies

Brandie- your temp stays up and you get a bfp tomorrow.

Willow- wow what a rough week, I hope your sister heals quickly

Sill- what a beautiful memorial tattoo

Jules- I love therapy! I hope you are able to find some peace through this process

Tarsha- LOVE the name Gradey!!! That's my LO name only spelled differently

Savannah- It looks + to me!

Becks- for a day at the beach and disneyland tomorrow! Must be nice, all we have here is snow, snow, and um....yeah MORE SNOW!!!! It comes up to at least my knees outside. DH told me today we have gotten 30 inches so far this month! It feels like it is never going to end

Sorry if I forgot anyone, I know I did but it is getting late and the kids really did a number on me today...chat at you tomorrow. Nite

wow, that does sound exhausting! :faint: and to your sister


afm: i'm still around, but will be posting less. i made a decision to be as stress-free as possible from now until i get my bfp (and hopefully also after ) and for me that includes spending less time online. since i work ft out of the home, do grad school i'm never home, and when i am i was trying to cram in tons of thread reading and posting and checking fsot etc etc and getting nothing done, which was stressing me even more, not to mention neglecting my hubs and son so anyway, long story short, i'm still around and will pop in from time to time to say :wave2:

She said she will be in a ton of internal pain and they had to make a larger external cut to get it out. She did have some growing on the other ovary and the dr didn't want to remove it and create scar tissue. It is pretty much a ticking clock before it is large enough to cause more pain, so we will wait and see.

She has almost decided to have a baby now as she feels it may be her only option.

that entire ordeal just has me feeling so much empathy...how incredible and crazy our bodies are. i hope she ends up healthy and with child at the right time for her family.

AF should show on Thursday so now I'm just waiting so that I can wait another 25 days to possible O. Sorry to be all Debbie Downer. Just feeling frustrated. It took six months of crazy cycles to finally conceive my DS and I was about 15 lbs lighter so that doesn't help either. I have joined a gym that opens March 1 to hopefully try and get some weight off and move my O date up a little bit. Okay so I've rambled long enough for my first post. Hi!
welcome! i know it can be frustrating...at least you can come on atts and vent to the rest of us who know the drill.

AFM - tons of EWCM. I took a OPK earlier today and BFN. I bought 2 HPTs on the way home and was planning on using one tomorrow morning but now I think I will jump dh instead. Maybe I am gearing up to 'o'. I've been having some cramps as well. I hate not knowing what is going on with my body!
i had a lot of stretchy, globby cm just before my bfp, just sayin...

i think the rule of thumb is that once ewcm dries up, you've already ovulated, usually the last day of fertile fluid...

THAT said, i guess i am not past ovulation after all...lots of ewcm and a SHOW cervix this evening...the opk's didnt get darker, but im thinking since i didnt take one yesterday, that was when it would have been positive...so im going to see what tomorrow's looks like...but im pretty sure i ovulated today or will tonight...crazy.

Re: ATTS: Tuesday February 16

sassybean, this is what my ovusoft program says about cm and ovulation:

Quote:
The combination of FSH and high LH levels will cause estrogen production by the dominant follicle to stop. This surge is six to ten times the normal LH amount and generally occurs 12-36 hours before ovulation. Such high LH levels are easily detectable and are used by ovulation predictor kits and electronic fertility monitors to predict peak fertility. The drop in estrogen levels associated with the LH surge will quickly cause your cervical fluid to dry up. This frequently occurs within hours of ovulation.
hope that helps.

Thanks mama! I guess I will go by the last day of the fertile cm then to count my dpo. Crap that means I have to wait even longer to test!
