I just brushed my teeth to get rid of the taste (because sour milk is not a pleasant taste) and now i feel like gagging because my usually favorite cinnamon toothpaste tastes nasty and is giving me an odd aftertaste

and my front tooth started bleeding...

do you think it might be an infection? i suppose that could cause bleeding and odd tastes...

and i just sorta feel like all hope is lost and af will be here soon.


and now it tastes like i just drank sour milk... wtf.

I would say you are not out of the running yet!! With the odd taste and your triphasic temps!! Plus, if I am not mistaken, havent you already gotten a couple faint BFPs?

I'm positive at this point that all of those "BFPs" were evap lines.

they would have gotten darker and been visible by now if they were actual BFPs rather than not seeing one since then.


I could have sworn all my symptoms were gone but in the past hour they're hitting back full force... i'm sweaty, getting a headache, super tired, my backs hurting and i have this odd sensation in my lower front that is not comparable to my AF cramps by any means.

ok so when are you testing???? :
post #166 of 349
By the way I just took an OPK and it was a faint line but visible. I would have never thought I would be so excited to find out I was going to ovulate soon. lol this is a bit crazy....

So now I'm supposed to keep on testing until it disappears??

If I'm not pregnant... I have a cold.

I have no symptoms of a cold other than being worn out and having a headache... oh and slight nausea.... and my nose is a little stuffy... you know come to think of it I have a LOT of symptoms of a cold lol

usually you have to wait until the line is as dark as or darker than the control line... faint line could mean nothing, unfortunately...
If the line is darker tomorrow, then you're on your way!

I'm peeing SO MUCH

So I had mentioned that I am spending the weekend with dh and my parents. And my sister lives in this town. And that in the 2 long years that I have been struggling to conceive my first baby with my infertile dh she has had 2 babies? Well, this evening my dad got a call from the pharmacy that a perscription was ready. He didn't know what he had ordered but was curious so me, dh, my Mom and him went over there on our way to dinner. He comes out and says, "It was for M.... it is prenatal vitamins." So apparently she is now pregnant with her third. Her baby #2 is 7 months and she stopped breastfeeding at 6 months, and when her baby #1 was 7 months and she stopped bf-ing at 6 months, she got pregnant with #2.

So she is pregnant with her third and here I am month after month ttc #1.
And I got out of the car at the restaurant and told my famly- I just need 5 minutes alone, and I took a walk, and I started crying and crying and crying. For all ths unfullfilled longing for my children and the passing of too much time and the unfairness of it all.

So I feel crappy about that.
And then, I am feeling really crampy today. So, of course- in the midst of my broken heart busted wide open with longing and sorrow, I get this surge of- well, maybe this cramping is implantaion (10 DPO). And then I just don't know anymore how to handle these surges of hope that never get fullfilled etc.

has she told you she's pregnant with her third? or are you just going through the fact that she has prenatals?


because sometimes women take prenatals even when not pregnant (i've taken them for 2 years)

Oh, Katie34, that sounds so hard! I hope your good news comes soon!

Katie....

I am SO sorry... I can only imagine what that must feel like, we've been trying, and had a loss, but not for nearly as long.
On a positive note... i stalked your chart earlier, and thought to myself... hmm that looks like a dip (3 days ago on your chart) and then i remembered that last night you slept not at home... explaining the slightly lower temp... sooooo..... really, I think you should stay AS POSITIVE AS POSSIBLE, and make that little bean comfortable to settle in!

Not that you havent had to work for it... you HAVE... but maybe this is a lesson that when your beautiful baby is born, you'll be faced with all kinds of situations that make you want to run away and cry, but for your child, you have to stay positive and strong. ANd maybe all the time you've been spending on this TTC board lately will help- Because there have been a whole S-load of BFPs on here lately!!

Seriously, I know that it is SO hard... but this could be "the one" for you too!!!

and I tend to agree with Mae, maybe she is taking the prenatals just bc she's taking them while nursing, which I hear many BFing moms do.

Thinking of you! Hang in there!!

that's one reason, there's many others too!


I take mine to help with nail/hair growth, my borderline thyroid problems. the thyroid hormones arent low enough for me to be on synthyroid but are low enough to cause me to have slow nail and hair growth.

other ladies take them because out of all vitamins those are the ones that are best designed to make our bodies as healthy as they can be...

Pregnancy is definitely not the only reason.

yes yes... all true. My sister took them when she was like 16 for her hair and nails. Freaked our mom out to no end!!!

Thanks for the support everyone.
To me the issue really isn't about weather she may be taking the prenatals for another reason. I do know her and am 99% sure they are for pregnancy cause- she stopped bf-ing #2 a month ago, she is 40 and had said when #2 was born that she wanted to have a third as soon as possible, and also since she was able to get pregnant with #2 when #1 was 7 months old it is likely that it happenned again.
the issue, obviously- is that I have been wanting a baby for yrs and yrs- really about 10 yrs now- and actively trying for 2. And she got pg with her first when I was still finishing up a slew of dental surgeries I had- during which time I was actively waiting to finish those so I could ttc. So she got pregnant and I thought I would soon after. It is not just that she got pregnant again, which I am 99% sure is the case, but the overall sadness I am feeling with this inability to get pregnant for this long.

As for this cycle, well a bfn w- a Frer today at 10 DPO but if I tilt is a certain way I see a light light gray line which is likely the antibody strip.

One good thing is my mom helped me through some pain tonight so I feel a little better.

Thanks guys

Today I had extreme nausea today at 5 DPO, I was actually gagging in the toilet. I don't know what to make of that.

I guess it's my turn to obsess...

I'm 6 or 7 dpo and I have been feeling little cramps off and on for the last two days. Tonight I am sitting here getting weepy over a movie. :

I can't tell if it's pms this early or not.

I didnt want to waste an hpt so I peed on an opk and it was negative.

Oh well. I'll just sit and be weepy for now. LOL
