    Ebichan, I'm a bbt fanatic . I chart on both fertily friend and a manual sheet which my sinseh gives. The only way for me to stop bbt is to pop a baby! Or I have totally given up on trying to concieve. I have been charting for maybe 7months.

    Did your temp drop below coverline or still above this morning? Anyway you're in 30s...menopause should not be even on your mind!

    dont't think it dropped below coverline, only dropped from consistently high temperature
    Do you use charting and other fertility indicators?

    Ive not tried fertility friend but I will take a look !!

    My FF is free one...so it doesn't do much indicative pointers. Im quite used to reading and predicting my cycles so I didnt buy the "VIP" package after the VIP-trial was over

    Which program are you using?

    It's a BBT gadget I picked up from Japan.
    Rakuten: Lady's thermometer petit Sofia BT-14W (white) - Shopping Japanese products from Japan

    The English is a bit weird but it seems to be quite handy.

    Oh my goodness, I am giggling at the english text. Sometimes I buy stuff from daiso and I read the english instructions and they also make me laugh.

    I cant make myself finish reading the site. Haaa! So it's a bbt thermometer? I read that it can tell you when it may make you pregnant? ; p How much is one I'm curious?

    Oh I also just started using opk. Usually I'm quite safe on reading my cm to spot ovulation. But the website which I ordered hpt gave me opk instead. Lol so I use .

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    oh you mean the smell of CM is so strong? or i never monitor close enough.....hmmmm....haha, not say you all fetish but interesting to know that there's smell out of it.

    I thought only got smell after it becomes 'stale' from stainning the panties.

    Yar i also dont like the wet feeling after BD.

    after a stressful day at work, just wondering if i'm feeling some cramps? PMS coming?

    Hhehe yes cm is supposedly no smell when "fresh". I always think semen smells like chlorine!

    Poas again and line is same intensity as this morning. Still not solid dark. Earlier today did tell hubby maybe we have to bd tonight instead of scheduled tue night, if opk is positive tonight. So I just told him he is spared for tonight. He's very happy and says phew. Hahah pong zek since yesterday.

    LOL yeah the translations are a bit...er... (scratch head)
    Yes, it is a BBT thermometer. Even can let you input the CM "length" which is damn funny. More stretchy you input by "centimeter" I have not used this function yet.
    After charting for 3 cycles, it supposedly lets you know when is a good time to get pregnant and also if you are, (based on 2 weeks of continued high temperature), it also beeps to let you know.
    It also indicates the different phases so it is easier for you to lose weight diet etc etc ... very Japanese I know.

    I bought it when I was at the pharmacy. I was attracted to the fact that sold over 4 million of these.
    I can't remember but it was not cheap for a thermometer. like 4000 yen or something.

    The thermometer auto save all. then you export via a USB cable to computer but I didnt buy this cable so I just play each data and graph it in excel.

    Re: We are trying to concieve-ing!

    HappySoul ... fingers crossed for you!!

    I think I will get my AF tomorrow. I saw some staining already.
    Also tummy feel flatter like when AF comes.

    I guess I should not expect too much since I only anyhow try last month only.
    Hubs said, if we fight, we can make december baby then you can have maternity leave 4 months beginning of next year.

    ... how sweet but the average trying period is damn long as I can deduce...

    anyway I really appreciate all the advice and cheer here. I feel so happy because at the office no one in same boat as me. they all very young single girls.

    We are trying to concieve-ing!

    There were times when my dear's semen smells like durian. My dear was very pleased when I told him cuz he likes durian! But for me, i almost suffocated... I used up many panty liners during those durian smelling occasions. I was so conscious that others could also smell....

    Oooo ebichan - your bbt thermometer is so cute! Mine is like a granny compared to yours. Anyway ya use fertility friend. For me, i even bought the VIP package cuz can play around with the analysis.

    Dragontail - you actually use ff and the sheet from dr wu?!? Hee hee me just take screen grab and show my phone to dr wu.

    Talking about Japan. Ladies I dont't know how true this is.... But I have been advised not to go Japan if you are trying to concieve-ing or pregnant or have a child in its growing and formative years. This applies for the lady and the man too. For me, I rather err on the side of caution.

    Happysoul - get well soon and good luck!

    Ebichan, oh hehhe so cute your gadget! Can measure cm somemore. Does it come with a ruler? Have to measure the cm length mah. Like you press a button and "tiak" out comes a mini ruler. Reminds me of primary school days I was so proud of my pencil case. Got many secret buttons and compartments.

    Littlej, I told you I am bbt obsessed! Some days I just dont touch the paper sheet. When I know it's time to see dr wu, I just refer to ff then chart along in the sheet for her. It just takes a min to do so. Hehhe I'm not complaining.

    I've never heard about this Japan story. Care to tell me some bedtime story? I'm curious.

    Happysoul, go rest well. Think I'm falling ill too

    Dragon tail - I know exactly what kind of pencil case you are referring to! Hahaa I had those too!!! Tiak tiak!

    Oh Japan story. Ok disclaimer first - I dont't know how true this is so if anyone from Japan tourism board or Japan government is reading this - please do not sue me.

    Anyway I heard that one should refrain from visiting Japan due to radiation. There have been cases (but unproven nor reported) of infertility and / or abnormality.

    That said, Japan is indeed a beautiful country and I have japanese friends who have successfully conceived and given birth.

    As I said, it depends on what you choose to believe in. It might just be untrue.

    Dragontail - you are bbt and cm specialist
