Tear, brown spotting is very good I had it with 2 of my pregnancies. This last oner I just thought I was going to start af, but it was way too early, then several days later I found out I was preggs. Good luck (cautiously )

Tear - spotting is definitely a good sign!

GOOD LUCK LADIES!!! I enjoyed reading all your positive stories about New Years. 2010 is your year to get pregnant! Tear welcome back from Germany!!! We are down in Grafenwoehr-- near Nuremberg, so a bit farther south then your family members. I hope you had a good time!!! I bet your hair looks fabulous!

today's temp and the resulting emotional response bummed me out so much. this has been one of those cycles that feels like it's "it", which i hate as i've been wrong each time so far since ttc. sigh. how's everyone else today?

Mae, I also think I see something very faint. I guess time will tell.

afm, my temps are up, but I have had *severe* PMS irritability immediately after I Od, I mean to the minute I feel terrible, and all i can say is, poor DH. So, does anyone know, do these symptoms mean I am not pregnant? I showed DH my chart and he seems not to be too worried about my chances (timing was perfect )

7dpo over here. My FF VIP membership just died in the middle of a cycle. I never want to buy it for more than a month, cause, welll....you know
I wish my temp would shoot up already.
It just occurred to me that MIL will be here for a visit around the next time I O. No stress here, this one better take.

When VIP ends does it still mark when you O? Mine is up in a day.
post #30 of 571
Yeah it still marks when you O I think the only thing it does is take away any symptoms you have listed for this and past cycles. It will no longer tell you how many "pregnancy points" you have, and doesn't count dpo for you. The chart still shows BD, OPK, CM, and CP.
Seems it always takes away my past symptoms (when VIP expires) right around 7dpo when I want to really start obsessing!
It seems like no big deal until you have a "symptom" and you really want to compare. That's how they got me last month.

I had a weird symptom the past two days that I have had with all pregnancies. I tend to forget...um words. Simple ones. Today's was "Restraining order" (Don't worry it doesn't apply to me )

Other than that, nothing, not even sore boobs. They weren't sore last cycle either and I wasn't pregnant. They are usually always sore after about 5dpo my whole life.

My chart is remarkably boring at 7dpo http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/26ca58

BelovedK Here are the differences in VIP and non: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/comparison.html

If I werent as nerdy and OMG I LOVE NUMBERS as I am... I wouldnt do VIP. Its really not worth it unless you want to know EVERYTHING you can possibly get your hands on. Free version still allows you to input your information and gives you your crosshairs after you O (but will not forecast O days... but you are a smart lady and can do that yourself, I know that!)

Im really not thinking these are anything more than evaps.

I just realized our very first cycle trying was officially 2 years ago now (as we DTD over New Years)

ETA - links should be fixed

Im not sure if it has color, I think it does but I feel like im just seeing things since i see the pink line but the camera doesnt.... and yeah ive been playing with them but no need to post my tweeks as I cannot get them to be OMG LOOK IM PREGNANT but can get them to be well... maybe.

If its any sort of a symptom im seriously craving fruity things right now. I think its more me missing summer though lol

My breasts STILL dont hurt... but whatever right?

Ive got nausea but still not sure if thats pregnancy or travelling...

Get (perhaps tmi) blood when I blow my nose... but its winter and the air is dry.

Had EWCM this morning which I always get just before AF... AF is due Tuesday.

Hello everyone and happy new year. I hope that this is a fantastically BFP year, heck month, for everyone


Mae, I see something, yes!!!!!! Hoping for an ever-increasingly dark line

Tear, that kind of spotting is a good one IMO.... for you too.


and for everyone else too!

AFM, I'm having an awful day - I am just so bitter. Hope you don;t mind a vent, as no-one else understands....okay so I take my temp yesterday CD8 and my temp is average and a opk is faint positive. Usually I o on D10 and 2-3 days beforehand I get faint positives ( technically negatives) then a big positive for 1-2 days then faint again....couldn't BD as Dh was out of town but no worries as it is still early right? well, I wake up this am and temp is way up ( should have dipped) and opk is fainter, almost gone and then FF gave me crosshairs and said I'm past o......so, I missed this month....no idea why I o so early>\???? I mean what the heck? I have NEVER o that early....must have been D6 or 7, I'm always D10-13.....

Trying to get my head around another missed month, DH comes home and announces that he feels we should only try for this year and then that is it...because he deosn't want to 'be too old' ( we are both 37).....so now we are down to 11 more months to try.....This is the first time he tells me there is a time limit for him


I go on facebook which turns out to be a big mistake, one 'friend' ( who had suggested I had 4 m/c because I was too old) had given birth to a son and also had the perfect home delivery ( she knew I had had a difficult/complicated birth with DD and ended up an emergency C-section and also knew how much I wanted a home/natural birth, but that's another story...)and made sure to give me all the details...it just broke my heart. I mean I am happy that she has a healthy son and all, but YKWIM.....I tried so hard to be happy for her. Then I get another email telling me that my good friend is about to have her third child....she didn't want me to find out on facebook and thought she should tell me now ( she has 8 weeks to go)....happy for her but now I'm just on the floor.

DH, usually supportive pipes in " we have a great daughter, why can't you just be grateful for her in stead of just so bitter?".

So now I feel like a totally crappy mom, wife and friend. I'm sick of this, living here with all this snow and -30 all the time and staying in doors day after day and a different country than my family, no money to do anything or go anywhere, trying to have a second child, POAS and temp taking and being given no answers, being told to be grateful for what I have, and it just stinks. It's not the kind of life I envisioned.....sorry, for this rant. I just have no-one else around me that understands. I'm just having a really rough day and want to crawl under a rock......

s

Its not easy. But we all have times when we feel like a horrible whatever...

Just remember... you ARENT a crappy wife or mom or friend... the friend giving you all the unsolicited details on the birth knowing you wish you had done the same WAS quite crappy of her... so you are completely in the right to be upset about that!
post #40 of 571
GM, big fat s for you. That's what we are here for, to have someone who understands/ has been there. I'm sorry your DH has given a time limit, that has to feel bad DH thought we were too old, and there are other reasons why he doesn't want to TTC anymore, but every month there is a 'whoops' so there is always still a chance.
