Re: ATTS July 23-30

It's totally "do the deed". I can't get that page to load. BD is baby dance.

FX= fingers crossed


Laurel I'm just so sorry that this is a struggle for you. I hope that you're wrong and AF stays away.

Re: ATTS July 23-30

Here is the picture from today. The top one is yesterday's (as a comparison), the middle one is today's and the bottom one is just one of those cheap-o tests. The line is there on the cheap-o, but I don't think you can see it in the pic.

I also got a blood test today and the numbers were low (13), but I'm not super-concerned for a couple of reasons. With my son, they were also super-low but had more than tripled 48 hours later. And also, I don't think I'm very far along. I don't think I ovulated until after I got home from being out of town which would put me at 11 DPO or less. We'll see, though....I go back in tomorrow to get blood drawn again.

Re: ATTS July 23-30

Thanks ladies for all the for AF showing up. I guess I just had the impression that if you dtd at the perfect time then 100% you will get pregnant. Apparently its a little harder then that. My son was a TTA baby and since then I had complication with Mirena coming out. I just need to be a little more patient and understand it doesn't happen the first couple months for everyone. Im off to the beach for a long weekend!

Congrats to all the BFPs over the last couple days!

Sorry for those with BFNs but we will be together again next month.

And it's funny... some of the ones I thought I understood, actually stood for something different (like DTD... I thought it was "did the deed" not "doing the dance" haahaha).

Make the list! What's "FX"? I understand context, but still can't figure this one out.
I will make a list There are still some I don't know so if you see some that I miss, let me know!

I understand her feelings but that doesn't mean I can't be just as upset as her over not being able to conceive. I hate it when people say things like that!

OAN: According to FF, I will be super fertile on our anniversary (August 6th) so FX to get an anniversary baby!
She came

I really thought this was it, after two and a half years of trying this was our month, and although I know there is still a chance, I just don't think it's going to happen. Big hugs to all the other mamas feeling down. This has just been a rough month for me in every way except ttc. I got through everything else because this is the prettiest chart I've ever had and I was so sure it was going to happen.
I know how you feel!

Re: ATTS July 23-30

Ok, so when I checked my cervix today it was like SUPER anterior, like I had to pull it down some to feel the opening and the other side...is that normal? Its never done this since I've known how to check down there, and I've noticed a weird sensation in my pelvic area...wonder if they are linked? Anyone else had one do this before?
