      Yeah, I was going to say I read 3 hours.  The thing I find hard is that if you get up at 5am during the week for work, you can test and 3 hours +/- 5am every day.  So 2am to 8am.  But what about on the weekends when you want to sleep in?  I have to wake up early to take my pee test?  That's kinda annoying.  This weekend it worked for me since I happened to be up early, but I'm thinking I'm going to have a problem with that part.

        Yeah, I know...having to get up early just to pee sucks...

        But I do think you have to keep doing it on weekends to be consistent...

        From what I've read, I think most people set their alarm, pee and then go back to sleep. Or try to anyway:-)

         

        And of course, I now have yet ANOTHER pee question...

        This is for the digital fertility monitor in particular...Do you have to test at the exact same time every day...OR is it okay as long as it's within the "window"...?

          Well I just started the CBFM, so I can't say from my own experience, but from reading the package that comes with it and it's perfectly acceptable to be within the window that is 3 hours +/- you test time.

            That's what I thought -- I just wanted to make sure I was reading it properly:-)

            Some of the instructions I've had to read a few times to make sure I got it right, lol:-)

              Yeah me too!  I hope it's worth it for all of us!  I just hate wasting so many test sticks.  I have never O'd before CD18 before, but they are making me test from day 6 on for the first cycle, so that's at least 12 wasted tests.  Oh well, maybe we'll find out I'm fertile alot earlier?

                  Hello, I hope everybody is doing well and that their projects are moving forward !

                   

                  I wanted to share some good news as this week marks an important milestone for me as I reach 13 weeks on Thursday. Yes it's the end of my first trimester and now the risks of miscarriage are in majority behind me !! So happy Today I went for my first trimester screening and the baby was moving so much it was hard to measure the nuchal translucency ! We saw all his hands and feet and fingers it was awesome :)

                   

                  Next big step is the results of the screening... and maybe the amniocentesis... and then opening the baby registry lol !

                   

                  Good luck to all !

                    Congrats, that's a great milestone to pass!

                     

                    We've been TTC for well over a year now and I think we've about given up hope, so are taking a much needed step back to reevaluate.

                      Congrats Ayita! That is certainly a milestone, and a huge relief I'm sure!

                       

                      Carly - I am sure that you and your hubby will make the best decision for you as a couple and as a family.  A year without success must be difficult, and I hope that this time of reflection allows you both the time needed to help you determine the next step.

                       

                      We are still at the beginning of our journey, but I am currently on CD43 and starting to get anxious.  I POAS on Saturaday to reveal a big fat BFN.  So I'm sitting here waiting for AF to arrive but no luck.  I was sure she was on her way a week ago with all the symptoms I was having last Tuesday - bloating, irritability, chocolate craving, anxiety - but she is still a no show.  So I'm sitting here waiting.... anyone else have crazy long cycles after going off the Pill?
