happy new year ladies! i hope 2009 brings us all the bfps we've been hoping for! :

afu, we stuck to our plan to wait until saturday to test again. symptom-wise, pretty much the same as previous days but no further spotting. tomorrow we head to labcorp to get blood drawn and hopefully get the beta back early saturday morning.

: indigo!

for all . . . so excited about all of the queer spawn to be conceived/born in 2009!

Thanks for creating the thread, indigo. Good luck for Saturday....good will power for holding out!!

ewcm finally showed up yesterday. Put in message to KD but he hasn't responded (probably out and about for new year's celebrations) so not sure if we are going to have crappy timing again this cycle I haven't checked opk yet today but it was getting darker by yesterday. If he doesn't get my message by tonight, I'm really hoping I don't O until the following day!

Ok guys, I am ready to be a more active part of this thread (I think), thus making papa NOT the longest lasting on the thread of TTC. We are now at about 2.5 years!!!

Anyway, I am feeling really good about this next go... for no good reason at all. Since the m/c my HCG levels are down to 11 as of Tuesday. I think we'll inseminate this round even before I get my period again if I can notice any fertility signals at all. I think I just need to pay attention. Temping won't really work, but POASing should give us a decent window. But who knows, it could be many many weeks before I o again.

Argh, no word from KD : I know I can't really be mad as he has been amazingly flexible so far but I am disappointed. Last month O happened the weekend he was celebrating his bday and this cycle is new year's...just crappy timing. OPK was almost positive today...I find it really hard to read them (I'm using internet cheapies). Strangely, no ewcm today though. I usually get 3 days in a row of really good cm. Odd. Maybe my body is conveniently holding out!

papa, have you broken down and poas yet??

ktcl, welcome back to the thread. I hope your cycle bounces back quickly!

well, we are in the countdown to knowing whether or not this try worked. dp had blood drawn this morning as scheduled and we should : get the result back tomorrow. we'll do an hpt first thing in the morning also.

last night she had some very vivid and weird poas dreams which i attribute to nervousness about testing tomorrow.

carmen, that sucks about your kd. maybe you won't o right away and you can still line him up?

ktcl, i hope your cycle gets back to normal quickly so you can try again soon.

papa, are you going to test tomorrow?

post #8 of 203


Okay, so I broke down and thought I'd just pee on the stick left over from last month. I figured, well it will be negative anyway b/c it's too early and then I won't have to obsess that it's in the cupboard. But, I think there was another line...maybe just maybe. Barely visible? And, it was mid-day, not first thing in the am. So, now I'm obsessing and need to rush out and buy more tests because I need to pee on another stick tomorrow morning (first thing) I'm not even going to mention to my sweetie that I did this...just in case. But, ack, ack, ack. Part of me is : and the other part of me is trying to squish the : because, it was too early. The line was too faint. So, I still don't know and maybe I should have waited 'till Epiphany. But, I can't take back the pee

I'm proud of all of you who are holding out...

wishin'&hopin', ooh i hope that it really is a bfp for you guys!! everything i've read says a line is a line when it comes to an hpt so this might just be it - so i offer up my congrats! i know others on here swear by the digital, so maybe get one of those for your next test? (not that i am trying to enable you in any way of course!!!!).

dp reported that she felt very, very, very slightly nauseous for a few minutes earlier today...but she thinks it might have been stress...

wishin'&hopin'... Get that pee more concentrated and get thee a digital and then get back here and give us the spectacular news that yours will be the first BFP of the New Year!!! That is so exciting!!!:

As for me being your 'local' fairygodmother, I'm MDC 'local', not at all Cleveland local. I'm about as far away as you can get. Way up in the coastal mountain range of BC, Canada.

But this works long distance anyway:

wishin&hopin, get a digital!! A line IS a line!!

Afm, ewcm is back today but still no response from KD I want to stay positive but I think this month is a write off for us at this point. And I wasted all those opks!!

It scares me some times how well y'all know me.

Carmen, the day you posted this, I POAS that morning. NOTHING!

I skipped today, and Indigo, I'm right there with you tomorrow morning!

I have zero to report in way of symptoms or "symptoms."

So, it looks we have at least three of us testing tomorrow! Wishin' & Hopin', I say a line is a line. Get a digital!!!

Carmen - that is the frustrating part about the KD. If you still have EWCM, go for it. Track that guy down!

I have the same plans if/when I get preggers.

You noticed that too? They sure are super cute as well!!

Okay, so checked this morning. It's positive--faint but it looks EXACTLY like "picture c" on the clear blue easy test. :

OMG (gosh). Pray that it sticks!

And, seriously, during the middle of my second service on Christmas Eve I thought, gee, I think I just got pregnant. How weird. Yikes, pray!

Good luck to everyone else testing today you will be in my prayers and thoughts.

firstly, congrats wishin'&hopin' - it's nice to wake up to some good news today. :

well, another glaring bfn for us this morning. not even a hint of a line. we are sad but ready to meet with the re next week to figure out our plan for february. we haven't heard back from the clinic about the blood test but with no line on the hpt, it's bound to also be negative. at least next time we'll know all the symptoms that dp is bound to have from the prometrium supplements and just discount everything, lol!

good luck to everyone else testing today or still in the tww.

Super congrats to you. What an amazing conception story you'll have to share with this wee babe.

Well I had a u/s done yesterday and today I am going to the pharmacy to pick up the menopur. ( injectables) She said I did have some cysts but since I ovulate i dont have PCOS. I am excited for this adventure to start. I am feeling better since being out of commission for the past 24 hrs....that stomach flu thats going around is a killer!! You can add me to the waiting to ovulate list.

Congrats to wishin'&hopin !!!
post #18 of 203
Indigo - it's still a tad early for y'all yet, right?

Wishin' & Hopin'! I'm SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!! Yay!

This month is going so much better around here.

AFM - I got some inconclusive, but possibly positive results from a $ Tree test, and then another dollar tree test was solidly negative. Of course, I took a digital to settle the tie breaker - Not Pregnant.

Grrrr. Only 10 DPO, lots of time still. I just want to be knocked up ASAP. I was so excited between the first and second tests, hoping for my BFP.
post #19 of 203
Wishin'&'hopin', that's great news!!!!

After morning service tomorrow we'll light a candle for you and send you sticky, sticky thoughts.

also a negative from the blood draw yesterday so we are officially back to waiting to be ready - since we meet with the re on wednesday it's almost definitely too late to try in january. surprisingly we are ok with that - almost as if we knew our next baby wasn't supposed to come this time.

as a somewhat interesting side note, dp's mom passed away suddenly 3 years ago and always had a magic touch with orchids. we bought some to have at our commitment ceremony in 2006 and of course we're not really plant people and almost killed all of them because we forgot to water them. all except one. and every year it blooms flowers - one for dp, one for me and one for our dog. until our son was born and now it blooms 4. the orchid plant is hanging out in our dining room for the holidays and just recently we noticed another very small bud. it's a bit away from blooming but we feel dp's mom is sending us a sign that yes we will have another baby but it wasn't time yet. dp and i don't do anything special with this orchid except water it and keep it in a room with lots of morning sunshine during the summer.

papa, i got excited too reading your post, i have fx for the next few days bringing you a bfp!! one of us needs to get one i think!!!

we're off to a baby shower this afternoon and we'll be sure to rub the pregnant belly for good luck!
