The Christmas morning testing tribe - Page 3

post #41 of 68
Thankfulforfive, I'm so sorry, AF sucks!!! I know that bummed feeling only too well. I am 9DPO and while we've been trying, I always start spotting and cramping between O and AF. It's been horrible. So far I am still in, knock wood, no spotting. Also, my boobs hurt, which NEVER happens to me before AF. So I am hopeful and praying for everyone here who wants that Christmas miracle...if I can hold off POAS!!!!!

eta. the last couple days I have been having some mild cramping but no sign of AF, so maybe it is baby getting comfy.
You and I are in the exact same place. Had funky localized cramps on Sunday, today a general achiness. Please don't let this be PMS or I'm going to be super bummed!

Sorry ladies, I couldn't hold out until Christmas morning. I took a test this morning at 11DPO and there were 2 dark pink lines, definitly POSITIVE.
I hope that there are others that get good news this Christmas. I will cross my fingers for the rest of you.

I'm gonna delurk...I'm testing tomorrow! I'll be 12 DPO. I've never gotten a BFP before 14DPO, though, so who knows. I do have an FRER (and a $Tree and a digi) at the ready. I thought my chart might be going triphasic yesterday, but today's temp proved otherwise. Lots of *positive* vibes for all of us!!!

jessiesmom--CONGRATS!!!

I tried, I really did but I couldn't hold out until tomorrow. I am so floored ... a BFP!!! My first

I was sitting waiting for the result already preparing a pick-me up speech because I've had zero and I mean zero symptoms and I look back in 2 minutes and there was a faint (no squinting needed) but pink second line. OMG.

Lots of baby dust to every one!!!

jessiemom - Congrats!

Jessie and Mantis....how awesome!!!!!

I've tested twice already and am saying "geesh, is that the faintest of lines, or does my mind just really want to see something there?" I'll keep going till I get a + or AF shows up.

Congrats Jessie and Mantis!!

AFM, started getting crampy today, but got a BFN. Still hoping for a Christmas miracle, but feeling kinda bummed (I think I'm 11DPO?) GL ladies!

Wow, 2 already

Good luck tomorrow everyone

I caved today and tested as well (14 dpo) and got a BFP!!!! I didn't even have to squint or anything, the line is definitely there!! I'm feeling crampy today though, so I really hope this one sticks. I had a chem preg in September and today I kept expecting AF to start even though I got a BFP (can anyone say neurotic??). I'm a bit nervous, but also very happy and excited!

Good luck to everyone and happy holidays!

I won't be joining you ladies after all.
I haven't "felt" pregnant (unlike in the past when I really was), I've got my usual pre-AF signs, and I started spotting today - the same CD as the last few months when AF came at the regular time.

Carrin--Promising! Keep us posted.

Houla--EEEK! Congrats!

mom2fussy--Ugh...I'm sorry

Wow, congratulations to everyone on this thread who has had a BFP already! I guess this Christmas spirit it working well for most of us so far.

I tested on the 22nd, and got a BFN. I still have no period symptoms, and either expected my period the 22nd on a 28 day cycle, or the 28th on a 33 day cycle which I had last month. It will probably be too early to test then.

I wish you all luck and decided I will probably try and hold out a little longer to test, to see if I miss AF or not.

Merry Christmas to all! And baby dust these holiday seasons.

Congrats Houla!

Woke up at 4:30 am and tested. As I sat there waiting for the results, AF came. But, at least I had some time to wrap my head around it before Christmas morning.

Good luck to everyone else!

Carrin--I'm sorry

AFM, I also woke up at 4:30 AM...and my FRER

HAD TWO PINK LINES!!!!!!!!!!!

PinkBunch and Houla, congrats and Merry Christmas!!!

Carrin, sorry about AF, she sucks!!

I tested last night and FMU this morning and got glaring BFNs. Had a little cry about it last night . This morning DD got clothes for her dolly under the tree and insisted they were for our baby in mommy's belly, not her doll. DH felt this statement has predicitive powers. I am keeping hope alive until AF shows, but am not terribly hopeful at this point. I am so glad for those who have gotten their BFPs and wish us all a peaceful day.

Qbear'smomma. I'm so sorry for the BFNs.
