January Obsess and Test - Page 21

post #401 of 539
So sorry! I know you had high hopes this month. I hope you get to try again soon!

I tested and got a nice shiny BFN but it's not the kind that can hurt my feelings at all since it's so early. I'll test again on Sunday at 10dpo. I am hoping my temps just keep rising (like we all are) and that yesterday will be a nice little implantation dip.

Yay for being halfway through the 2ww.

I think I need to join this thread. I told myself I wouldn't obsess, but no suck luck. I am 6dpo in my first cycle TTC.

I know it's still super early, but I swear something is going on. I have been so nauseated I can hardly function. (slight overexageration) But seriously, I never feel like puking. I haven't thrown up in probably 15 years. I never feel nauseated! I actually hung out by the toilet last night, convinced I was about to spill it all, but I didn't. I sucked on a candy cane for a little while and felt better enough to sleep. I also have had lower back cramps for a few days. I only get that on the first day of my period, and for only one day. I have never, ever gotten back cramps before CD1. And now it's been quite a few days in a row? What's going on?? I sure hope it's what I hope for, but I don't want to get my hopes up too much. I'm really trying not to obsess over every little twinge or feeling, but it's so hard. I've been a thorough charter for 6 months and I've never felt this way. So, my fingers are crossed for sure!

I POAS at 3dpo just to see what a negative looks like in person, since I had never POAS before in my life. I'm really trying to wait until 12dpo to test again, but after reading about other early BFP's I doubt I'll be able to hold out that long.

if you really want to hold out and it helps

i had nausea at 5dpo with this pregnancy and my last. Last pregnancy I got a bfp at 6dpo... HOWEVER this pregnancy i got stark white bfns until 13dpo when I finally got some believable BFPs
post #404 of 539
well, i'm not ready to start obsessing yet...but i have a quick question. If my doctor has me take my Ovidrel this month to release the follicles that the nurse saw this morning would i be crazy to go ahead and test a day or two after i take the shot to see what a + would look on my IC's just so i'll know what to be looking for when i'm finally able to test later this month or toward the begining of february? I ask this because Ovidrel contains Hcg and that's why i know i would go ahead and get a + result. Just thought i'd ask...i know sounds crazy right?
post #405 of 539
brichole- you can go ahead and test as far as I'm concerned... at this point seeing any positive would be cool. But maybe it would be a lot darker than you would get from a real early bfp, like Maeryn had those squinters for awhile?

BelovedK- so sorry AF came

Kingsdaughter- sorry to hear it but at least things are making more sense for you now

i am still confused... 11dpo here according to FF. 14 according to tcoyf. I think tcoyf cannot be right, because my luteal phase has always been 11-12 days. Once in a while it might be 13 at the most... lol I"m going slightly mad here. BFN, far as i can see on frer. That means I'm out, right?

Here's my test, see if you see anything, but it's probably nothing.

Temps have entered a new high level. Either it is going triphasic or I just O'd... Ah, i give up. Anyone want to look? Any expert advice from you, Maeryn?

Thanks ladies!

So I may have something to obsess over!! I poas yesterday when my 10min tests arrived and got a very small fairly faint line, it definatley had colour in it and we could see it with my arm held out, even DH could see it aand all within time frame.
So i poas this morning FMU (8dpo) and a there is very very faint second line, fainter that yesterday. So maybe the lines are just evaporation lines.
I wish i was techically gifted and could post the pics!

I guess time will tell!! But i will be sworn of the 10miu tests for good if im not preg this cycle.
post #407 of 539
I am letting myself get my hopes up now even though I'm only 7dpo. My stomach feels like it's in knots. It's not one of those feelings that leaves you wanting to run for the bathroom, just tight and kinda painful. I think it is my stomach that is making me burp like crazy. I rarely ever burp unless I drink soda, which I haven't had in weeks. I took a nap with the little boy I am a nanny for yesterday and again this morning and I am already yawning like crazy. I know that none of the symptoms that I'm experiencing just scream PREGNANT! but that doesn't stop any of us from obsessing, right?

It's amusing to me how well I still obsess even after almost 3 years of this.

Actually many women do test after the trigger shot, and keep doing it until the get the negative so they know that hcg is out of their system and then they will know that any positive test after is for real.

Good Luck

I'm not trying to get your hopes up but I definitely see something on that second test. The first one is way to dark to see anything, but I definitley see a line on the FRER when I turn my laptop sideways

I hope tomorrow you see a real no squint needed lline.

I would! Last cycle I waited too long though and you could barely see the line. Next time I'll do it sooner, just to see it.

i would personally test daily with ICs to watch it leave my system

but I am an obsesser and a tester...

i like to know 100% what is going on as soon as i can (know when the hcg is gone... and when a line is starting to come back due to pregnancy rather than leftover hcg)

and i just plain love seeing tests develop, positive OR negative. I have run them under water (to watch for an evap line) and still sit there excited over the control line showing up lol... plus im 5w2d and was still testing until 2 days ago! not so much now though. I do have tests but Ive stopped testing.

I'm sorry I don't see any lines, but I think cd87 is a good looking O date if you get one more high temp?
post #413 of 539
Bwahahahha that is too funny. So y'all pretty much agree maybe I ovulated two days ago? Dude, this is the FifTH time since I've started temping again that I thought I had O. Temp rise fooled me. And this will be the 3rd time in just the last 2 weeks, if it's true. So we'll see what temp is tomorrow. Haha I have gone around for two weeks thinking I am at the end of the 2ww and now possibly just now at the beginning.... again. Already set back once thinking I was 5dpo to 2dpo (originally) with the second rise I had 11 days ago... now thinking I am 12dpo tomorrow (but ruling out 15dpo, cause I woulda tested positive or seen AF by now). Well the next day or two will be the clincher, I guess. Then at least I will know... ha!

I don't think I'll believe any temps I see ever again, just AF or BFP... thanks ladies!

beachlover- btw thanks for saying you could see something on my frer... funny, I thought I did too! But obviously it's not real if I have not even O'd... or just did.
post #414 of 539
I don't remember who asked about this but yes! Definitely test after the hcg shot. For a couple reasons: There are some women who don't ever get a + pregnancy test despite being pregnant due to how their particulate body metabolizes hcg. You want to know now if you are one of those few women. Also, knowing where to look on a test will help you spot your real BFP. Testing now and daily until it is negative will let you know that your BFP is real!

Good luck! I hope this is it...

For those out- better luck next cycle
For those waiting to O- here's to good times bding!
For those in the 2ww- Lots of sticky baby dust! Yahoo!

I don't think yoru temps are inaccurate - it just looks like your body has geared up to O many times and then doesn't (especially with sporadic positive OPKs). There may be supplements you can take to regulate your cycle a little more (B6? Maca?). And at least by temping you will see why you could have potential problems conceiving. Have you always had long cycles?
post #416 of 539
Well- the confusion continues for me as well! Here I was thinking I had my chart all figured out..HA!

13 DPO- temp went back up high today WITHOUT any progesterone, after the huge nosedive yesterday....cervix is still up high and shut tight....still have off and on nausea- cramping and boobs hurting off and on. ACK!!!!! I have ALWAYS gotten a + HPT by this point with all my kids- course I never charted till Joshua. DH had me re-test again this am just because my temp went up again so high... so I did and got exactly what I expected- another BFN! LOL! I told my dh I did not think I would get a + with my run of negatives over the past week. I have one more test left till my new batch of IC's I bought for my next cycle show up... I told him I would re-test if no AF in about 3 days. I have no desire to test again before then because I am SICK of seeing BFN's! This has got to be the strangest cycle of my entire life!

I am off the progesterone and don't plan to start it up again unless I get a BFP ever. I usually have enough progesterone of my own to make it to 6-7 weeks before I miscarry anyhow. I have never started it before until I got a + test, it was the docs idea to start it sooner this time since I am still nursing Madilynn at bedtime.

My chart is WEIRD!!! If your a chart stalker and want to check mine out- feel free to do so and post your thoughts back here. I will be lurking around. :-P http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1a5ff2

Oh and something funny- Last night I kept dreaming I was pregnant and was just finding out- I actually woke up in the middle of one dream and was about to wake my DH up to tell him I was preggo when I realized I was just dreaming about it! HAHA!
post #417 of 539
Kingsdaughter- I feel you on the confusion! I don't know what to think about my chart anymore either! I hope your dream comes true, though. I am also sick of BFN's... or BFH in my case (BF Hallucinations, ha ha). I will look at your chart again.

Hulajen- I hear you on the gearing up to O, but would my temp rise in absence of O like that? so if you do think my temps are correct, any thoughts on what is going on today? And I don't understand how there is a clear thermal shift... at least one!- that is sustained with no O?

Mama cop kaz- how exciting! But are your 10ml tests the purple handle IC's? If so, that is what i used and saw a progression of 'somethings' before I ran out. They did not all have evaps, that is for sure. But I am left confused. I hope you get a clear answer today!

SimplyRochelle- well I would have hopes up too if I were you. FX this is your month!

My temp is still up today but don't know what to make of it... it may not be fully accurate because I had a hard time sleeping after I got up to pee. But then i never get 3 hours before temping anyway. I guess I will see what it does tomorrow and pray I can get the usual sleep and temp just regular.

98% sure I did not O 12 days ago either because I got the BFN/w/ line vision... see what I mean?

Tara2- Blue tests aren't accurate. Let me say that again. BLUE TESTS ARE NOT ACCURATE! It is sort of like asking a random stranger if you are pregnant and believing their response as fact. Blue tests LIE. Blue tests tell the truth. There is no way to distinguish between the two. Don't buy them. Don't use them.

Just trying to help!

Jenne, LOL! You're funny.
post #420 of 539
Im shattered...i think you're right Tara2, i think the lines that I see are evaporation lines although they appear within minutes (the tests have blue handles by the way), the first test I took at 7dpo had a very visable pink line, althoough faint, DH could see it clearly, the line yesterday was even fainter and the line this morning is barely there and def a evap line, so im feeling deflated thinking that this was going to be it, but im pretty sure that at 9dpo if i was pregnant that the 10miu test would be positive.
So im going to spend today trying to this of reasons why i shouldnt be pregnant this month. Im just sad, and i never get teary about these things but cant help but sit here and well up and wonder will this ever happen for me??
