Well, I'm not in the ordering bulk tests club, but I AM giving myself a pat on the back for actually WALKING PAST THE DOLLAR TREE and NOT BUYING ANY TESTS tonight. Can you believe the self control? It's overwhelming, really. It is just. too. early (7dpo tomorrow). I am too tired and worn out this week (last night my 20m/o was up from 12:30am-3:30am. I get up for work at 4. I went to bed at 11. Soooo sleepy....!!) Anyway, I think seeing a - test would really weigh me down.

I occasionally start to fantasize about how fun it would be to tell everyone over Christmas about a new baby, but then start kicking myself because I have this feeling like I'll jinx it somehow by thinking too hopefully. I want to be pregnant. I truthfully, to the very core, don't feel like this month is mine. Sigh.

I feel like a lot of people think my luck will make next month be mine, but I'm feeling otherwise too.

on the plus side, some womens first symptom is being convinced they ARENT pregnant lol

Im trying not to obsess

Im avoiding due date calculators to tell me when my little one would be due... Ill let FF tell me after confirming O.

Im wishing AF would get here already so I can be in my one week wait for DF, then my one week of fun, then my two week wait. On the plus side, the first week of that two week wait will be spent in Michigan with his family so I will be too busy to think about it much. The second week, not so much. But I will be 9 or 10 dpo or so by the time I come home to start obsessively testing (not packing a single test to take up there. This trip is about DF not about baby!)

10 dpo today. test with fmu was white as snow. *sigh* chart still looks good, though. that is some consolation -- temps are still high.

Bfp!



Hello ladies!!! Just wanted to share the . Due 8/3 and hoping to see all of you in the august DDC. BTW, is a glaring two second REALLY dark line (way darker than control) on a DTT at 10 dpo an indicator of something? just wondering.

Just that you are pregnant :P

If you are thinking it might be a sign of twins, no.

Oh man, what a day! I am so excited, DF will be home in 17 days. I finished my outside Christmas decorating (unless DS gets his way and I decorate our tree out front with huge Christmas ornaments like the neighbors did) so now we will move on to dipping pretzels and making sugar cookies...

I bought a shovel for me and one for one of the kids to help today, its going to start snowing any time now (and I mean that in the uttermost literal sense, according to the radar the snowstorm is about a mile west of town) though it wont stick it did prompt me to get a shovel now.

I keep thinking to myself... this time next year I could be shopping for THREE kids!

post #51 of 770
I guess since I got a BFN this morning and some helpful info from friends on here...I am going to wait until monday...that'll be around 14 DPO...maybe I'll see something then. SOMEONE needs to give us a + before we all GO MAD!!!! lol
post #52 of 770
seriously! lets get some bfp's up in here! i'll only be 9dpo tomorrow and no tests in the house. feeling just ready for my temp to drop so we can move on.
post #53 of 770
Hi t olovemercy,

I'm also 9 dpo tomorrow. I'm going to start testing Saturday. Oh, who am I kidding, I'll start tomorrow.

Congratulations SwmCoachSa!!!

SwmCoachSA: CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! Hmmmm...that's pretty rare to get a glaring BFP so early! My cousin is pregs with twins and didn't get an easily visible positive until a week after AF was due (this was on a cheapie early test). But you never know!! Do we get a pic? I can't test till next Thursday so I'm dying here!! Give us HPT eye candy!! Haha

Hi, can I join?

I had/have a cyst last cycle and was convinced I was pregnant. DS is almost 5 and we've been ttc for almost a year, and this is the first time I was *sure*.

So, last DTD on the 2nd, which was cd12. Got an LH surge today at 3pm, cd13. I am horribly obsessive with testing. Like at least 2 a day. I'm going to try to wait until at least 7dpo this time. We'll see

I'm rooting for our 9dpo ladies!!

Aidanraynesmom, welcome! I understand what you mean about going a tad overboard with the testing. Last month I was convinced that my entire batch of tests were faulty because they never showed a second line.

By the time AF was about due, I was taking... ahem... three a day. I'm going to try to cut down to two a day this time.

i think i am out for this month, ladies.

my temps are down and i woke up with spotting which will probably progress to full blown within a couple of hours. i am grumpy, even though dh brought me coffee and is making me breakfast.
post #59 of 770
temp went down a little more today. not the big drop, but that's coming. even though i've been sure this whole cycle that I wasn't pg, it's still grating on me to watch/wait for the temp drop. time to have a good cry.
post #60 of 770
Ariana, I'm sorry, honey. I'm glad your hubby is taking care of you.

Erin, your temps still are considerably above your cover line. It is far too early to count yourself out! I think your chart looks great, so stay positive, my friend.
