You mean those black dots floating about?

That's because I was trying to temp, but having major trouble sleeping deeply or long enough to get true basal temperatures. I'm going through some financial problems and it's pretty much filling my nights with restlessness and nightmares.

If you ignore the dots, it's easier to read!

We are having it pretty rough too. Makes me think I'm truely crazy for TTC! I don't care though, if we have to sell our house and move to Africa...I will!

Money sucks.

DH still isn't on board with the "keep not preventing" plan... but today when I made a comment about how I was crampy and that was "good for HIM" he actually looked sad that I probably wasn't pregnant! And then he listened to the Saga of the Chart. He wants me to test, and I was planning on doing so tomorrow anyway...

OTOH, I hardly ever get cramps BEFORE AF shows...

ShwarmaQueen - I can't imagine having to find the thermometer before I could temp! I have enough trouble getting it from the bedside table into my mouth! And even then, I usually fall asleep + wake up again when the snooze goes off - 15 minutes later!

Ok - to bed, so that I can test in the morning!

well...I just visited the oct 09 board. Bad idea. Now I really want to be pregnant this month! I love ddc!!!

Yes, Ladies, I am going to test!!!! I am 15DPO and I'm fairly certain that I am preggo, so I want to confirm it. I'm taking recommendations about what test to use. I want an indisputable result, so what should I use? Thanks for your advice!

I'd say at this point, any test you'd take should work. Good luck.

Yeah brin with that chart I don't really think it matter which test you use. I think even the serial stalkers have got bored with your chart as you're so obviously knocked up.

I still have no idea what's happening which is not helping at all. I just now feel that even having to wait 9 months to have a baby (that is if I can get pregnant this month) is too long to wait. I'm starting to forget how it felt to hold a baby. I don't want to forget because it felt so wonderful, but I don't want to think about it too much because it upsets me, and I don't want the stress to put off my fertility.

I just have to get knocked up now.

ok... so for a change I have a serious question... instead of just hanging around making people :

So I've just started "experimenting" with LH test strips for curiosity's sake ... the instructions say if the test line is lighter than the control line then it's negative - it should be close to, the same as or darker than the control to be read as a positive... ok, so I get that bit!

so - the one I did tonight was darker than last night's.... even taking it as a negative as the instructions instruct - I'm assuming that means I'm closer to O?

I know! Now I'll be careful to make sure it's on the table before going to sleep for sure!

Visiting the DDC's during AF is what keeps me sane- I live vicariously through them!

I'm sorry. I'm right there with you.

Please step away from the strip. Peeing on things is highly addictive and will lead you down a dark and lonely path to peeing on other things...



AFM: I'm so happy I started V-temping; so far there's less "peaks" and "valleys".

My OPKs often get darker as I get closer to O, so, yes, it's possible! I hope you catch that eggy!!

brinalicious... We're waiting.................................

Everybody have a Reproductive Day!!!

: I just saw this. I came home the other day to find DH sick on the couch and my thermometer on the table in front of him. I V-temp too. I almost flipped out until he told me he put it under his arm. Now I'm thinking - armpit sweat on my thermometer! lol...good thing I'm not using it anymore.

brin - Good luck temping! You're so pregg!!! Joiiiiin meeeeeeeee.....

fazer--I'm so sorry about the loss of your baby. I can't even imagine how painful that must be for you. And I hope you will have another baby to love soon. But in addition to TTC, I also hope that you are able to find the resources to help you and support you as you grieve and process your loss. Another child will be a blessing in his or her own right, but cannot replace Isabel Rose or erase the grief and emotional pain of losing her.

Just saying hello -- CD 9 and I'm just sad this month. I feel like not trying any more -- I want to get on with my life...but I'll probably try. Sigh.

GO Brin! Can't wait!:

I'm definitely retiring this thermometer if/when I get pg!

TTC is only waiting and waiting and waiting... Hope you get your BFP soon!

Can't wait to see if the Maca makes you O sooner since your chart has seen so much improvement by itself already!

AFM: I think I'm getting O symptoms sooner this cycle than usual...EWCM and SHO- I'm so excited!

Hi guys!!!!

I have been having a hard time staying away I have been popping in to stalk charts, plus I miss TTC. I just kind of freaked out about several things and had to step back a bit.

af is now officially late

Of course, now that I said that, she will show up.

I have felt like she is coming, but really, each time I check, nothing.

I am now starting to have hope. I had a bfn though last Sunday (13 dpo) sooo, really I am probably still bfn

My original test date was supposed to be tomorrow morning, I will check in to report the results. :
post #99 of 182
ShwarmaQueen: thanks for the vote of confidence... I have some HPTs left over from December... but have not even the slightest inclination to use them until AF is way overdue... don't want the same disappointment we had at Christmas....

Stevi: thanks... I kinda thought it might be a possibility... but wasn't sure as I've never used them before! My cycles are pretty much like clockwork - give or take a few hours - one day at the most! So I know when I'm due to O anyway... Like I said - I bought them out of pure curiosity!
