Well, she should show her ugly face sometime next week. I've never really been on a regular cycle. I'm taking the FertilAid now, so hopefully after this month I'll be able to track my cycles better. I'm not fond of the BBT charting either. I tried it for a while, and it seemed like my temp was all over the place! I was like, "What's the point?" so I stopped. It's nice that you have an internal little alarm for when you O! That would be useful!

I've heard a lot of people say that the tests from this site really aren't very reliable. I'd go with what the better tests said. But of course confirm with the doc. I hope you get good news!!

Thanks were crossing out fingers but its still pretty early so... how are you doing? you should get one of these infamous cycle tickers once it comes or stays pretty reg. also you said your taking fert. aid? what about prenatals or anything like that? I've been takeing those since AF left this last time. lots of women from here use OPK's i've never used them but they might help you...at least to tell you when you O esp if you could never really tell by the bbt charting stuff

Hi Armywife...boy I didn't go online for like a day and now you may be BFP. Hope So!!! Keep us posted!
Hi Jessebaby, wow you are good luck! But don't worry, I am 41 and it may take me awhile. I was thinking about the fertile aid, but it didn't list the mg of the herbs included, so I am sticking with my doctors precription and am taking herbs on my own. I think I am doing well with figuring things out and doing as much as possible...naturally. So, here is my TCC protocal:

Charting BBT
Using clearblue fertility tests (just bought the fertility monotor on ebay for $85)
Taking pre-natal vitamins from doctor
Omega 3 with DHA
Vitex 280 mg
Evening Primrose oil before ovulation 150mg
CoQ10 100mg
Don Quai ??
Vitamin B complex
Eating healthy...no caffeine, alcohol, fried foods or refined sugars.
Exercising more frequently...every tuesday ride my horse, walk/run, free weights, calanetics
- try to do something every other day
Trying Acupuncture to increase my Qi (chee)
Oh...Having sex!

Wow Cara sounds like you got your end down to a T lol thats great! Yea i'm pretty sure we got our BFP but im not gonna count our blessings yet till its confirmed by the doc, which hopefully I can do tomorrow. You know every test i'v taken the lines are dark like i've said and today I looked every place on post that carries pregnancy tests and none of them had any digital ones left go figure a battalion got back from deployment a lil over a month ago and this always happens just hopefully I can get into the ob here.

Well, bad news this morning...AF showed up. And earlier than I expected. Maybe the FertilAid actually did put me on a shorter, 28 day cycle like a lot of people. That'd be nice, because the 35 or so day cycle I was on was a little tiring....I feel like crap this morning, nice and crampy, and just bummed. Oh well, it was my first month using the OPK's, so maybe I'll be better prepared next month.

As for the FertilAid, it has the same vitamins and minerals as a prenatal, so I should be getting all of the vitamins I need, as well as a little fertility boost.

Wow Cara, you really do have this figured out! It's so complicated all of the things we do to try for a baby. But let me know if any of them work for you! I'm willing to try anything. As of the end of this month, we've been TTC for a year. Since I'm just starting the FertilAid and the OPK's, I'm willing to give it another month or two before I go to a fertility doc.

It's just research...I'm not sure if I figured out anything. But I feel better knowing that I am actively trying my best. It's like a big science experiment! I think a lot has to do with timing and knowing exactly when you are about to ovulate. My first two months of "trying" I had the timing completely off. I bought an e-book that was kindof interesting. If you want to email me I will send it to you. CBRENC@yahoo.com.

Now I'm really confused. It's day 6 and was seeing a change in my CM so I thought I should start doing the OV tests and it looks like I am seeing a surge and my CM was like the egg white stuff all of a sudden. So guess I better get busy! I wonder why it is so early this month? I just tried the clear blue tests and my line was way darker than the reference line, but the reference line was very dark at all. But this is the first time I tried this brand so maybe it's diferrent.
