    My first OPK I got really excited and took a picture and sent it to my sister.  The other time was my first CH. I read up on it before we started trying. When we started trying I was so excited to see those solid CH for the first time.

     What are you doing this cycle? charting/temping (to confirm O), CBEFM, OKPs, EOD, preseed, progesterone after O

    Chart Stalks/Rants/Raves? My CBEFM went from low to peak today and I got a positive OPK so this is a good sign!  Its early for me since I usually O around CD18 but a welcomed surprise.  Also, I didn't get a peak last cycle so its nice to know I might have a chance this one.

    GTKY:Anyone else get insanely excited about some TTC first? (besides BFP of course) I get excited when my OPKs and CBEFM say the same thing :)

     What are you doing this cycle? opks, temping, cm

    Chart Stalks/Rants/Raves? Positive opk yesterday...figures because I also woke up yesterday with my throat on fire. This morning I'm feeling awful, just got a Iced Capp and Timbits in order to "make it better" and now I'm pretending to work. Also, I"m discouraged because potty training with DS didn't go as well as I'd hoped the past couple days. Sorry, I'm a pity party of 1 right now.

    GTKY:Anyone else get insanely excited about some TTC first? (besides BFP of course) Not insanely excited, but I was pretty excited when I got my first positive opk. And I'm always excited when crosshairs show up on my chart.

     What are you doing this cycle? BBT, OPK, Pre-seed, PNV, ED sex

    Chart Stalks/Rants/Raves? Had some intense Ovulation-like pain yesterday, still around today. Negative OPK and temp is still low, so I have no clue. Hopefully nothing's wrong.

    GTKY:Anyone else get insanely excited about some TTC first? (besides BFP of course) I love seeing +OPKs - one cycle was anovulatory (I took like 30 OPKs), so I really appreciate seeing them!

    Not really. My favorite part besides getting a BFP would be being done with opks and knowing I ovulated according to FF. I think I get more stressed trying to pee on opks and waiting for the temp shift than I do in the 2ww.

     What are you doing this cycle? Temping OPK etc

    Chart Stalks/Rants/Raves?  Nothing yet, I'm learning I really should set an alarm.  Every temp when I'm half asleep is between 97.00 and 97.10 and if I wake up a bit first even in bed it goes up.

    GTKY:Anyone else get insanely excited about some TTC first? (besides BFP of course)

    I'm still optimistic, it may change soon though.

    GTKY: Anyone else get insanely excited about some TTC firsts? (besides BFP of course) Yes!!  This is my first cycle trying so everything is a  TTC first for me.  I am excited to get my first positive OPK and I am excited to do the BDing without BC while I am fertile. May sound weird, but I was really nervous thinking about BDing while not using BC, but now that I am no longer using BC and we are TTC I am so ready and excited!

     What are you doing this cycle?  Charting/temping, OPKs (for the first time), EOD, green tea, POM juice

    Chart Stalks/Rants/Raves? I'm meeting with my OB in 2 weeks since it's officially been a year. I have no plans to take meds but am considering an HSG to check for blockage.  I'm excited to be temping again (took a cycle off) and hope to see solid CHs. 

    GTKY:Anyone else get insanely excited about some TTC first? (besides BFP of course) I was excited for my first CHs to show but then disappointed to see them move and also become dotted. I'm excited to start OPKs this cycle.

     What are you doing this cycle? EOD until I observe EWCM and then we plan on ED. Temping, charting, PNV.

    Chart Stalks/Rants/Raves? I am so incredibly annoyed! My temps so far have been terrible. I have an ear infection and I'm on antibiotics now but CD 1-3 were all out of whack now my BBT isn't holding my temps from the middle of the night so I have no idea what my last two are. It's only two weeks old too but it's Kroger brand. I'm still early on in my cycle so I think I have time to make it up, any suggestions on a BBT that is good?

    GTKY:Anyone else get insanely excited about some TTC first? (besides BFP of course) Haha yes! TMI warning: Last night was our first BD officially trying and when we were done DH helped me prop my hips up we were both overly excited for the moment - I know weird - I only waited 5 mins, not looking to get a UTI here. When I was done DH asked if I felt preggo, um no and I probably won't for many weeks if it does happen. I asked him not to ask that again lol.

    GTKY:Anyone else get insanely excited about some TTC first? (besides BFP of course) I loved getting a +OPK and seeing my temps rise with CH. But...now I'm a pessimist. That chart looked damn near perfect and I still got my period. Here's to continued hoping for this cycle.

    At the suggestion of ladies on this board, I got a Mabis from Walmart. It works wonderfully! I also recommend probe covers since I broke my first BBT from washing it carelessly. 

    My H used to ask this, too when we were done. "So are you pregnant?" Silly boys!

    Chart Stalks/Rants/Raves? So AF seemed to be totally gone yesterday, but surprise she is back today :(

    GTKY:Anyone else get insanely excited about some TTC first? (besides BFP of course) I still like it when I get a positive opk or see obvious EWCM, but I can't say that I am excited. Since we have a known issues ( MFI) it kind of keeps me from getting excited, because I guess deep down I wonder what our chances are of getting pregnant on our own again even with great timing.

    Testing to try to determine a cause & possible treatment for MFI
    CD 3 blood work for me. RE does not want to repeat my HSG/lap at this point,
    but may want to before moving forward with any fertility treatments.
    After seeing the uro, DH is currently taking lots of supplements and clomid to try to boost his count. We will have a repeat SA in February to see if it works.
    Follow up SA numbers are: Count= 4 million, Motility= 40%, Morphology= 1%
    Uro wants us to have another follow up SA 5/9 to see if we see further improvement than we are back to the RE to make a game plan

    What are you doing this cycle?  Finally getting back to the normal stuff (temping, opks, sex EOD).  I've been traveling a lot the past couple cycles and wasn't able to keep up with charting very well

    Chart stalks/rants/raves?  AF needs to leave the building...

    GTKY:  Yes!  But partially because I had 2 super long cycles, so when I got a positive OPK for the first time I was crazy excited and kind of in disbelief.
