January Obsess and Test - Page 22

post #421 of 539
mumma cop kaz- you don't need to rule yourself out just yet. 9dpo is really early still... maybe try a different brand, dollar tree? frer? fwiw I never saw actual for sure pink on my tests (one just looked like super faint-maybe purple), so if you did that's a good sign!

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?

Actually cd78 looks like a good O date too. it coincides with CM dry up and the second positive OPK on cd85 could be a secondary surge (any ladies have info on that?) Before that there looks like attempts but nothing sustained. I think if you took the EWCM out of the cd76-78 that it may change your CHs. What setting do you have FF on? You won't have a sustained shift and no O. So sustained shift = O. (Advanced? or FAM?)

Hey everybody.
So I've been hanging out over in the No Stressers/No Obsessors thread and secretly lurking here.

I can't help but obsess! I am 6dpo and I already ordered some hpts so I can start testing on Wednesday or whenever they get here.

I'm afraid I'm making up symptoms already but I'm having symptoms I don't usually make up. I have to pee often, I go from feeling full or at least not really hungry to feeling ravenously hungry - with the kind of hunger pangs that make you feel like your stomach is going to start eating itself. kwim? Also, ummm... usually after O my sex drive plummets and I'm having the opposite feeling right now.
I'm sure it all weird coincidence since it's so early but I'm obsessing so I thought I'd check in with you all and see if anybody ever experienced these things as super early signs?

not those in particular... but I did start getting symptoms at 5dpo and didnt get my first real bfp until 13dpo... and even that one was faint... and on a FRER no less!
post #425 of 539
Hulajen- thanks... FF must be on whatever the standard is for basic cause I don't have a VIP. even for cycle day 78 puts me 12dpo and I woulda had a bfp by now, don't you think? Or AF would arrive by tomorrow, I guess we'll see. thanks for looking at my chart. Clearly I need all the help I can get!

babsbob- yup, welcome. I have also had similar sx. getting up to pee at night whereas before I could hold it all night. that's def new for me. and hungry the last few days...even feeling more engorged 'down under' so yeah, kinda feeling amorous. Just cause I seem to be manifesting these on my own doesn't mean you are. Have fun testing!

I didnt get a faint bfp until 13dpo.... so not really.

also... the most likely O date, if you DID O yet, is currently cd87. Not cd78. Making you 3dpo.

I know fam says 3 days over the past 6... but the previous so-called-shift was the same temp as you have reached and sustained SEVERAL times already. So to me that does not, at all, look like a possible post-O temp. However the 98.0+ has NOT been a temp you have reached and subsequently sustained for any reasonable length of time in the past.

Right now I am feeling rather foolish actually. I even told myself not to get carried away thinking I O'd, cause temps tricked me once in November, turned out to be I was getting sick. Then I believed it cause it lasted this long, and people told me they thought I O'd.

But Maeryn, you told me I hadn't. Guess you were right! I should have listened to MaerynPearl. Ladies, always listen to Maeryn. Maeryn's a goddess...

But you knew that.

Don't worry, I won't go believing I O'd this time either.

K so ALL of you ladies have made me decide to go ahead and start testing once my doctor orders me to use my trigger shot!!! I'll test EVERYDAY after i take it until either AF show's up or I just keep getting BFP's : ) It will be nice to see 2 lines again!!!! Good Luck to everyone who's waiting to O and waiting to know!! And God Bless the ones who AF has found!!!!! (I was not thrilled when she found me a week and 3 days ago!!!) I'm about to head back to answer the 911 calls of the wondeful people in my county, but I had to post this to the wonderful women on here!!! I go back to my RE on monday and i should know by then if i'm going to have to use my trigger shot!! I should be Oing sometime around wed. of this coming week so we'll see!!!!!!

that is indeed very nice timing... add a second one to cd12 and that would be the timing that knocked me up!

I am set back to 8dpo instead of 9. Tested again and it was a nice stark white BFN. I don't know if it's just the batch of $ store tests I have, but you can very easily see where the line would be as soon as I pee on it. It never got any color so I know it wasn't the slightest big positive, just curious if anyone else has noticed that.

Hi Mamas,
I need help--Maeryn!--or others tech-inclined. Would you show me how to invert a photo? I have iPhoto but haven't figured it out.

The back story: I was on the boards last spring, but I've been lurking these past few months following a missed m/c and D&C in July (my first pregnancy). Anyway, DH and I just got back in the saddle, so to speak. Sept. I was too depressed, and Oct-Dec DH and I traded bouts w/H1N1 and other ailments and just weren't up for it.
Well, I dragged him into the bedroom
after getting a +OPK Monday, Jan 4th, and here we are 10/11 DPO....
I feel pregnant: sore and erect nipples, veiny breasts, a little heartburn, hungry, a little nauseous, have blown my nose and seen blood a few times, some cramps...I guess the whole enchilada.
I've been taking DT tests--BFNs. I just took a FRER and saw a fainter-than-faint line, but it did come up right away. I'll post a pic here--please show me how to invert, or if you're so inclined, would you invert it for me?

http://i800.photobucket.com/albums/y...n/IMG_2292.jpg

Opinions welcome! I'm somewhat in shock now.
Also, even though I've just been lurking, I've been rooting for all of you! Congrats to all the recent BFPs!

Thanks!

That's def a BFP there songtothemoon! No onverting needed for my monitor! congrats!!!

OMG, HulaJen, are you serious????? I knew I could see something, but could barely believe it!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for looking and responding so quickly!!!

on FRERs... any pink line that comes up in the time limit is a bfp... even if it is faint

that is a line

and its pink!

and its actually a bit darker than MY first bfp!
post #438 of 539
I usually can't see the faint BFP's when people post them, but I can definitely see that one.....CONGRATULATIONS!!!!

Thanks, Maeryn!!!

I knew I saw something, and my FRER in June was also quite faint to start, but I've been looking at #@$%& DT tests the last couple of days and they've been stark white. Even the DT i took just before taking the FRER this afternoon. I was worried I had phantomlineitis!

So, I guess I'll be on the cusp of Sept/Oct so I'll join both, probably...

First, I'll wait til the lines get darker...
