Oh, you mean feedback about the test. She just said that dc was really fast. This is not dc's usual style (was in the ERBs and the St. Ann's evaluation for over an hour and SB for less than 35 minutes) so I don't think that bodes well. Another friend used her and said she said almost nothing, something like, "she's all done" and that was it. That dd did not score well enough for second round so maybe the compliments you got do mean something. [ Reply | More ]

who said that? original poster was disputing your claim that dcs will need "at least" a 97-98 next year to get into 11 by pointing out they needed nowhere near that this year. you then seemed to take this as a diss, got all defensive and pointed out people are leaving 41/3 in droves. i pointed it's not really true, but made a point of saying the whole argument is ridiculous. and now you are accusing me of ragging on you and claiming 41 is better? you need a valium. and better reading comprehension skills.

If you have no history of problems and this is your first time ttc then I would stop monitoring and just have lots of sex. It is normal for it to take a few months to get pg and this way you won't get too stressed out about the whole thing which may well help in itself. GL [ Reply | More ]

i, on average, ovulate on day 21-24, and you MUST have 10 days after you ovulate, at least, to ensure you don't have luteal phase defect. ovulating around day 20-25 is ok. low temps are okay and normal in the early a.m. my honest opinion? have tons of sex when you see "egg white mucus" --that is so much more important to watch then the temp!!!!!
