I took an earlypregnancytest.com test this morning. I *think* I saw a line this morning within the 3 min. mark, but now I'm starting to question myself.

Here's a link if you'd like to take a look, the line looks a little darker IRL. Please feel free to be brutally honest. I will of course be testing again tomorrow and probably every day after that *just to be sure*

And a link to my chart...

1. please, do not put the dots on the picture, they cause an optical illusion that makes a negative test appear positive

2. they look more like the antibody strip than a positive

3. your chart is private... so we cannot see it

The only way to pinpoint and confirm O is by temping. (or by the doc - like you said, your RE can cofirm you are indeed Oing, but to do it yourself....you need to temp)
Oh no, I know. I just meant that I surged on cd12, cd13, nothing on cd14. Then a few days later ultrasound confirmed. So I put those things, plus charting together to give me a fairly accurate day. Between 14-15. I'm not sure why I've been so hesitant to temp. Maybe that buying a bbt is subconsciously admitting "defeat"? Like I'm making a months-long investment/commitment. If anyone in the world would understand what I mean by that, you ladies will. I am so thankful for that. <3

Plus, Shettle is pretty adamant that charting is just as accurate. If my cycles were irregular at all I probably would have sooner. I think I will soon.

Well I just sucked that up didn't I?
Not sure why my chart is showing up private. I'll have to check the settings. Here's the new link...
http://dev.ovusoft.net/members/mommy...charts/12.aspx

That's why I included 2 links without the dots, too. I'll keep that in mind for the future.
Thanks for your input! I'm sure I'll keep testing daily until AF shows.
Here is a link to my fertility friend chart...(Hope this one shows up)

The lovely thing about charting your bbt is that even if you do get pregnant, that little thermometer will still be good once the baby is born... and if done correctly charting to avoid is very accurate... plus then if you have ANY slip-ups you will know if there is any chance of pregnancy at all rather than wondering for a couple weeks and have there not really be any at all.

I, personally, have been charting most of this year despite DF being overseas for the majority of it... not using it for TTC or CTA, but just to be 100% sure when AF is due... my period comes generally between cd26 and cd32... USUALLY around cd27/28 but even that one day difference it is handy to know 2 weeks ahead of time to not schedule anything important during AF.

I hate to say wait, but its a frer I'd probably give it an extra day for a frer.

babycatcher - Welcome to MDC! I can't see your tycof chart, but I can see the FF one. Looks good!

AFM - I felt really crampy and had fertile CM today. Feels just like AF is on her way which totally sucks since I"m uhm.. 4dpo. This is right when she showed last month so I'm praying I make it through tomorrow, and the next 10 days

Oh and I forgot to ask my question: Do you think 4dpo (possibly 5) is too early for a secondary estrogen surge? Isn't it ususally like 6-8dpo? or does it vary? Thx!

Morning ladies, I'm out, I had a spot of blood while wiping this morning. AF should be here tomorrow. For the first time in days, I didn't even bother to test.
post #227 of 770
Babycatcher, I think I see a faint pink line!!!! You should test with FRER and FMU!
post #228 of 770
Hey I'm in the 2ww...LOL FF cannot figure out when I ovulated although I know when it was by symptoms... (FF is off by 2 days).

So I'll be posting with some tests in probably 10 days... I"m going to try and hold out so I can not have to test 50 times We'll see I'll probably give in sooner.

Thank you ladies for the welcome and the responses. I wish I would have come here sooner. I still can't figure out why you can't see my ovusoft chart, with their new system I can't navigate as well. I took a first response today here's the pic...

I'll keep testing the next few days for sure. I feel kind of crampy today, but from what I remember with my last couple of pregnancies this is normal (I think, I don't really remember that well). I think I'm hyper-alert for any twinges or cramps because I miscarried recently.

Cramps can be totally common and normal in early pregnancy since most pregnancy symptoms are caused by progesterone, which is the same thing that causes pre-af symptoms.

I see a line! Congrats!!!!!

Thank you ladies!
Thanks for the reassurance about the cramping. I'm just afraid that everytime I go to the bathroom I'm going to be bleeding. I'm trying not to stress, but not always the easiest thing to do.

I managed to get hold of a test, and instead of waiting for FMU I did it straight away. With like my fourth pee of the day, super-diluted, no holding at all. At 10DPO. Of course it was BFN. Why didn't I just wait til tomorrow?
