Ok, i am glad i finally asked because i would have never figured out what the heck BD stood for. that is a lot nicer way of putting it than some people do. you would have thought i could have figured out CD but not me........haha

Okay, I am a total idiot who doesn't read directions very well..ack! I was reading the directions on the opk tonight because I got the same reading and it said that the "line" that you read should be darker than the test line..ack!! so unfair! mine was lighter than the test line..but the funny thing is, is that when I used these for Indigo(same brand) I only got a faint line and there she is! ???? when I tested with the opk's earlier in the week and last week they all came up completely empty, and now they have the line which is like 1/2 the coloration as the test line. my chart is starting to line up and CM isn't quite there but borderline, and CP is perfect. I'm so confused now. do you see why I just want to BD everyday? LOL its easier that way, this way we can't mess it up! Maybe I am getting a pre-pre-O?? according to old charts of mine I should O around CD20-24, I am at CD17 today. I have no idea what to think, I got everyone all cheering for me here, and now I'm not sure... :ol

I guess I just need to keep overenthused self quiet until something really happens eh? LOL I am just so darn excited to get pg and I consider you all my friends(cyber and some in person) and I just love to share my news with you. It's not like I get to share this with anyone besides my dh and you all. Can't tell family about it, lord only knows what they'd think after the last pg! I had mentioned something about ttc a few months ago, and that we were planning for november(old date) and I couldn't believe the comments I rec'd. They were saying things like, "just count your blessings" and "its wrong to want more than you can have" and "you can't give your daughter now the attention she needs and deserves if you die" well duh! thats not exactly my plan, we have gotten some amazing medical care from an exceptional peri and have planned this out carefully. i just don't even respond to those people anymore, you all here can understand me and my excitement and the hope that we have for a safe and boring pg.

well this got long...thank you all for your support, you are all just amazing and wonderful and I love everyone!

Have a wonderful independence day holiday weekend, and safe!

okay so I had two days of increased temps, my chart looks like O'd on thursday all the BD'ing was well planned :o) but my darn temp was weird today, I woke up extra early by chance so had to take my temp and it was 96.2 @ 5am, I laid in bed for an hour and retook it at 6am, it was 95.8 ??? all this temping is stressing me out!! I did get a good amount of sleep last night, like an entire 6 hours...lol so maybe that made a difference, I charted the earlier/first temp and set it to "discard" so it doesn't track it, maybe tomorrow it will rise back up. when I get back to my 4 hours of sleep again.

I think I'm having phantom symptoms...lol I was nauseated all day yesterday and have had really severe headaches since friday. not to mention I have woken up starving for 3 days in a row now...lol a total rarity for me because I normally don't get hungry till around noon.

thanks for hanging in there, I am sure you all are getting sick of hearing daily temps... :o)

I don't know if this helps or not and I am not so sure I belive it. But my Dr. told me with pg #1 that sperm can live inside you (not him) for up to 10 days with no complications. In High School I had hear 3 days (but that was off the street). So even if you miss the dance on the day of the O....

on fertility friend it says sperm are good for up to 48hrs. I think I have found my issue though, my thermometer is goofy, my dh is picking up a new one today. we will see if that makes a difference. I will just take my temp 2x a day with each thermometer to see if there is a difference.
