Lyndzies, my jumpers are rattling the bars of their cage for you...
post #502 of 624
Lyndzies-- that is TOTALLY a BFP! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH I can't wait until you call it though, then you get to have TONS of jumpers.... I say for sure get quant HCG some women metabolize the HCG before it can be found in their pee and only blood tests really show. Plus if you Od even three days later then you might be only 13 dpo. and just barely showing a BFP.... oooh good luck honey!!!

Hey all, still casually perusing the thread, grats to those that need it, condolences to those that need that, and hugs all around. Checking in for Christmas, I hope everyone is having a happy holiday thus far

I really hate 2wws, esp when you know nothing will come of it. If only I knew I had a chance to be pregnant, maybe it'd make this dumb PMSy stuff easier. My boobs are going to absolutely fall off in a bit and I've put on over 5 lbs of water weight or whatever UGGGHHH It's really bad trying to handle an angry dog at work when they are thrashing against your chest

At least I have a job that's paying well enough I can buy myself some vintage My Little Ponies...

K It's good to see you. My thoughts are with you. I'm still here even though DH and I are no longer TTC. We are careless though, and each month there is a chance, but it never happens. I think something is wrong with me

I wish we had some of our old ponies to send you I don't know what became of them.

It is good to see you

BelovedK, enigo, YYYM, Carlyle, and Lauren31 - Thank you so much for your positive comments (and for your restraint... it's hard, I know! I always want to bring out the jumpers and veggies for other skeptical mamas when I see a line on their tests!.

kparker - hi there... I'm sorry you're having a rough TWW. I think I missed something... are you TTA? for you, and I hope you are able to find some peace (and some ponies!)

AMF - temp still up today (although it dropped a little, it's still really high at 99.0). No AF in sight. But did not POAS today, and probably will not... I've got a pretty crazy day, and we're having a dinner guest... hopefully both will be distracting. If I make it to Wednesday w/ no AF, I think I will feel more confident, even if I am only getting faint lines, and I may try to go in for a quant HCG at that point. I'm just trying not to put the cart before the horse.

So I have this one REALLY strange "symptom." It seems WAY early for this (and this would be TMI anywhere but a TTC community): I gave my nips a squeeze/pull, and droplets of something white, liquid (plus a couple drops of something clear) came out! Could this be an early pg sign? This has never happened to me before... I'm hoping it's a good sign... Any of you who have been pg before have this happen to you??

AF came yesterday Boo. About the only good thing is that it was a really short cycle, 25 days. I've been on the other side and I'm grateful to have shorter cycles this time around.

I'm gonna hunker down for the holidays and the crazy 2' of snow we got. I hope everyone has a good week!!

Arrrg!
So it seemed like I was gearing up to O and now no more EWCM. I haven't gotten a + on an OPK yet even with testing twice a day. I swear if this is a long weird cycle, I'll pop! Mae help, make FF make me O! http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/26ca58
OK OK I know it's only cd 12. Christmas is making me nuts!
A girl I know just had herself a big juicy baby boy (10 lbs 5 oz) this morning. What a great Christmas present that would be!
post #509 of 624
I just logged on after having an extremely frustrating time today with a few things (on the heels of yesterday which also held some tense moments) to see Lyndzie's BFP, and it is not here I know that line is getting darker, just know it and I wanna see it. I at least want to post one of these , but I will restrain myself.

If I can get everything I need to get finished done, I will be surprised. I need to not be on here, but this is just a short break. I want to bake, but want to actually enjoy it when I do it. In the spirit of staying positive, I will end this post (as there is so much I need to let out, I think I will just go in my bedroom and cry instead

Lindz - wheres the darn OMG IM PREGNANT MAE!!! text already? If the lines arent proving it, the colustrum should be!

AFM - YAY!!!!!! I cant wait to O already lol...
post #511 of 624
Beloved: dude I have about 75 vintage ponies and combined with my generations 2 and 3, I have close to 100 MLP total I have 2 more super rare ones I got for a steal heading my way too this week Someday I will have them all... kinda like Pokemon

Lyndzies: We can't conceive atm, my husband is sterile due to cancer and other things. He also has decided he doesn't want kids so we're not doing any treatments at this time. Makes it a lot more annoying having such horrid PMS knowing there isn't anything behind it

HOWEVER I was a bad charter this month and didn't pinpoint O very well but I can say that I know for sure when it happened by, and if I don't start AF by tomorrow sometime, then my LP either lengthened beyond what it's EVER been or something fishy is going on. I'm hoping for the latter
post #512 of 624
Beloved - I'm sorry you're feeling so overwhelmed!

kparker - Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your husband! But if you're hoping for the latter, then so am I!

Mae - you have no idea how much I'd love to send that text.

Answer test at 6 tonight after a 7+ hour hold... yes, there's a line in the original and the tweak (it's okay if you can't see it, though). Is it strong? Hell no. Is it pink? Your guess is as good as mine.

The CBE digi I pee'd on basically told me to go f*ck myself.

... I'm sorry for the bitterness, ladies. I should have stuck w/ the plan and not pee'd on anything. I hope this isn't just another chemical dragging out... the boob droplets thing is rather curious, though. Definitely intrigued by that. Wonder if it has HCG in it.

I'm starting to believe that lame show "I didn't know I was pregnant" where the girls say they were late and kept taking tests, all negative.
post #513 of 624
I see them Lyndzies I am still holding off on the jumpers though (for you). Let it be a sticky bean. Digitals scare me, they are not as sensitive, so just keep on testing, it is definitely a BFP.

Naw... but it is a bigger sign than ANY other you could possibly get (except that damned BFP)
post #515 of 624
Hey ladies. lots of news to update on. On december 7 i started bleeding and the doctor checked my hormone levels. They were @ 8,000 which was the normal for 6 weeks, ( i was supposed to be 10) so i was optimistic and hopeful that things would be ok. This was on a thursday and my first doctor appointment was on the following monday Saturday things got worse and i started bleeding heavier. My levels had gone down to 6,000. I was told that i was having a miscarrige and that things would pass on their own. i was given some pain meds and told to come back if things got worse. well i went to the doctor that monday and the doctor was confident that the worst was over and that the baby had absorbed into my system and that i was ok. just to take it easy and come back in a week to check my levels again. Well lets just say i didnt get the opportunity to go back. The next weekend i started having severe pains, like i would of rather of pulled my hair out than to of gone through that pain again. I went to the ER and they said that i was passing the baby (which i thought i did cause i swear the pain was labor.) and they were going to monitor me for a while and see if the bleeding stopped. Well 2 hours and several doses of morphine later the bleeding was still pretty bad. They had to go in and do a D&C. i stayed in the hospital overnight and they sent me home the next day.. But thats whats happened with me lately. I have to rest and take it easy for the next 4 weeks and see how things go.. This was just to heartbreaking. I was ready for this,i was ready for my little baby.

Oh I'm so sorry to hear It sounds like you had a pretty rough time there. Take the time you need to grieve and be easy on yourself.

Nice to see you back KP- and my that's A LOT of MLP's! My weird collection obsession is Holiday Barbie. I've been getting them, and keeping them in the boxes since I was 8. I still get them for myself every year

Oh, and for a little fishiness this cycle

Well for what it's worth, I think the colostrum is a really good sign. And I think that it's just taking the HSG a while to get through your system. Hang in there girlie, pretty soon you'll be able to tell that digi to go eff itself

Oh mama, I'm so so sorry. How scary and heartbreaking After all that pain and suffering, no one should have to walk away without a little baby to show for it . I'm sad that you find yourself in this forum again, but I'm glad that you chose after all that, to come back and let us support you. Lots and lots of to you.

AFM- I'm still SICK. AS. HELL. As if that's not enough for Christmas, showed in full force today, just like I thought she would. The only good thing to come out of this month is that I'm back to a 30 day cycle. I start the Dexamethasone today, and then the Femara cd 3-7. Hope this works. I am not looking forward to having to do IUI next month. I feel like every step further I have to take to conceive it's less likely that It'll happen

praying4baby! - oh, honey. What a horrible thing to have gone through. I'm so sorry to read about your loss, and hope you have been able to find some peace and have been taking good care of yourself (and allowing others to take good care of you, too). xoxo

Mae - hope you're having a grand time makin' the heck out of a baby!

AFM - Soooo... I've given myself a deadline. Even if I don't have a strong BFP by Christmas, I think I'll ask to be moved to graduates at that point... I'd be either 21 or 17 dpo by then (if something weird is up w/ my O date) and I think I would need to just bite the bullet and try to enjoy early pregnancy, even with all the ambiguities, because you never know how long a pregnancy will stick around. May as well enjoy the hell out of it if and when you can, right?

What do you all think?? What would you do? (besides get thyself to a dr. for a quant... I think I will hold out till next week for that because of the nuttiness of the holidays).

So, I make it till Friday w/out AF finding me.

I KNOW, RIGHT!? And the frustrating thing is I want stats on them (ie, "I tested five times when my period was late at 15 DPO, 17 DPO, etc and got all BFNs!"), not just "my period was missing and I tested and it was negative." I want to know WHEN EXACTLY so I can compare it to myself

I'm sort of thinking the same thing. Doesn't it go that if by 18 DPO you still don't have AF, you're probably pregnant? I'm getting the blood test today anyways, so that'll probably rule out "wait and see" on my end


I just had to run for the phone for a moment... it was the infertility clinic calling. hoping this is not a sign that I need to keep that appointment...


prayingforbaby!-- so, so sorry to hear of your loss.
