    Took an OPK this morning that looks positive. Since Wednesday the two lines have looked close to equal and now the test looks darker than the control. Will test again tonight and BD tonight!

    I suppose I'll move from the Sept 2017 POAS board....

    Cycle Day: 31
    TTC Cycle: 8 or 9?
    Ovulation Date: 9/19
    POAS Date: 10/5
    Baby #: 1
    What's up this month: My Femara dose was doubled for this cycle. If by cd35 I still have a BFN and/or there's no AF, I'm supposed to call my RE. Meh, I had high hopes for this cycle. Now I just wanna get it over with....

    For Fun: Any fall plans this month? What's your favorite fall activity? LOVE October! I enjoy giving out candy to trick or treaters, so I'll definitely be posted on my porch doing that.

    Cycle Day: CD1
    TTC Cycle: 3
    Ovulation Date: probably 10/14
    POAS Date: 10/28
    Baby #: 2
    What's up this month: Probably will keep using the CBFM + cheapie OPKs. Hoping to maybe do SMEP if we can get it together this month.
    For Fun: Any fall plans this month? What's your favorite fall activity? We just took my 2yo DS to the pumpkin patch yesterday and he was in heaven! We'll probably go again so we can stock up on more apple cider donuts. We also have a trip to FL with my in-laws planned for the end of the month.

    Cycle Day: CD24
    TTC Cycle: 1
    Ovulation Date: 9/29?
    POAS Date: 10/11
    Baby #: 2
    What's up this month: First cycle trying for #2, I feel nervous to jump on the boards for some reason!
    For Fun: Any fall plans this month? What's your favorite fall activity? We took LO apple picking with his cousins for the first time this past weekend and it was extremely adorable. I am a big time spring/summer person so always find fall bittersweet, but the apples and pumpkins help.

    Ladies, I am looking for a little bit of help with symptom-spotting (or controlling my symptom-spotting). I've been loosely tracking my cycle the past couple of months using Fertility Friend in anticipation of TTC, mostly just going by CM. Usually, I see EWCM a couple days later than what FF automatically predicts to be ovulation. This month, we started to BD EOD when I started to see any fertile discharge, but I didn't really see EWCM when I expected. On Saturday, I started feeling really dizzy/slightly nauseous (which, for context, is how I felt in the days right before I gave birth to LO1) and SO tired--like, passed out at 9pm the past two nights and had no control over it. Then Saturday night I saw what I think was EWCM, but much lighter than usual.

    So I guess my question is, do these sound like pregnancy symptoms even though the earliest I ovulated was about 9/26 and more likely it was 9/29? It seems very soon and the fact that I think I saw EWCM after they started makes me question. But the symptoms are strong enough that either I'm pregnant or I'm coming down with something. Also, I was so tired the past couple nights we didn't do all the BD I had planned, so it seems like the most likely outcome is that I'm not pregnant and I'm sick! Guess I just have to wait and see.

    Fingers crossed for everyone on here this month!

    @chypmunk: my Poas date isn't until the 21
    @elljay: is smep special timing to try for a gender?

  14. elljay

    cherry / 198 posts

    @MamaBear87: No, it's just intercourse timing to maximize the chances of conception. You basically start on CD8 and do EOD until you get a positive OPK, then ED for three days. There's a website out there with more info, which I can't link to because my work blocks it...

    @Mrs. Oreo: sorry you're stuck in limbo. I hope something happens soon (ideally a BFP!) so you can move forward.

    @chypmunk: Good. I tested yesterday and today and got BFNs, but I’m only 9dpo so I’m not counting myself out yet. I feel pregnant, which isn’t helping the waiting though. I’m getting a lot of the same early symptoms I got with my daughter.

    Well, got AF today

    I was drinking coffee while working and the cramps was full on - no warning signs or anything. Ah well. I contacted my RE to get another script of Femara. I called DH while I was at work, crying to him. I jokingly mentioned taking some of his anti-depression meds, but I was actually somewhat serious.

    I'll probably POAS again at the end of the month sometime. *sigh*

    @chypmunk: @mrskansas: thanks, ladies. At least it was a 33 day cycle....not 50+! I guess that's an upside...

    Suffering from some strong cramps off and on for the last hour. If it wasn’t 6 days before AF was due (and I’m never early) I’d think AF was due. I don’t know if it’s a good sign or not good. Still just trying to ignore this until I decide to test or wait for AF to show.

    @MrsJBeeG: hoping it's not AF *fingers crossed*

    Heard back from RE. She wants me to come in sometime for a hysteroscopy and DH for a semen analysis. I guess it's something!

    Has anyone ever had a weird pinching sensation a few inches below the belly button? I don’t think I’ve ever felt anything like it but have been feeling it most of the day today. Cramps are mild but intermittent too. I just wrote in my daily journal that if this isn’t all leading towards a pregnancy this month - I’m going to be mad - because I’ve been uncomfortable nearly all day.

    @MrsJBeeG: I'm hoping this it for you!! Meanwhile, I've been cramping for about a week and a half, and I've just started to spot... so I think I'm out....
