February Obsess and Test!! - Page 12

post #221 of 377
I know how you feel Xtara - I was so depressed last weekend when I was still in the TWW. It's so emotionally draining, all the waiting waiting waiting. Sending good vibes your way!

For fun, how many tests are in your house right now?

I have:
60 internet cheapie OPKs (50 I ordered and 10 my pregnant friend sent me)
20 internet cheapie HPTs
4 $ tree HPTs
15 $ tree OPKs.
Total = 99

Is that a problem?

1 dollar tree HPT
5 FRER pregnancy tests
1 EPT digital HPT
17 (left out of 20) Answer brand OPKs

post #225 of 377

hopingtobemomma and xtara...

AF didn't come today, but I don't feel like I'm pregnant either In the past I always had symptoms by this time (14dpo)

I have actually been one of those lucky ladies in the past who gets pregnant easily but I am older this time (37) and also a thyroid cancer survivor. My TSH has to be kept very low and I've heard that can hinder conception. Still, I hoped

If I don't start tomorrow I will probably test again, but I am guessing I'll be out.

I'll be watching to see what happens with you all.

Hey, didn't someone get a faint line today?

Hey, Tara! I just saw this...I was just asking about you in TTC in our 20s! I am on CD 8 today. Got in a healthy round of BD this AM even though I am not Oing....that one was just for fun lol I have started the OPKs. AF left three days ago, and I got the 20 pack, so I started then. FF has my projected O on the 27, but I am hoping it is sooner, since DH will be gone the 25-28. I am definitely going to be giving him a little goodbye lovin' on the 25, so hopefully we catch an egg even if I O after he leaves Right now, our plan is to *try* for every other day BD (hey, it's February...Valentine's and our anniversary month, so we are feeling romantic ) or at least every 2 days. I am not sure when to start checking twice a day, like you said you did, but I may try around CD 14-16? I am just not sure since my last cycle was SOOOO long

I have been thinking of you and wanted to give you big . I really, really hope this is your month! If not, I hope that you are able to get an appt with that OB and get the bloodwork done that you want. Did you schedule an appt yet? Also, did AF come or are you still waiting? How was your temp today? You have been trying for 8 months now? Have you been temping/using OPKs/etc all this time or are you just "buckling down" (that sounds weird lol) recently? I think you said you have only actively tried 6 out of those 8 months due to illnesses and timing issues, right?

I hope you aren't out for this month!!! it would be wonderful to see your BFP!!!

And I was the one who saw a FAINT FAINT line yesterday...so this morning when i get off work i'll be buying me some FRER's and heading home to get some beauty sleep then testing around 1 or 2 in the afternoon since that's actually my mornings...(i know my body has been yelling at me for the past 3 1/2 years for being on night shift!!!) It would be wonderful to be able to get a BFP this month!!! Especially since my 26th birthday is on February 25th! Plus me and DH have been trying for what seems like FOREVER!!!! (this september will be 3 years!!) It's taking a toll on my sanity and my body! Especially since after this cycle we had on Menopur that sent me into OHSS!!!! That was a horrible week i had this past week! I really don't wanna go through that again!


FX for EVERYONE even those who haven't made it to the TWW yet!!!!


PS...Tonight at work one of the girls came in with a taco hell mexican pizza and i SWEAR i could smell EVERYTHING that was put into making that thing....i really thought i was going to throw up the entire night because the smell never went away!!!!

Im sure that there is a link to working nightshift and having trouble with TTC.
My accupunture therapist agrees (she use to be a shiftworking nurse) and said that it has something to do with the kidneys and is working on balancing all that out.
Whats with having no preg symptoms this cycle!! I hate, hate, hate the TWW

I have:

25-30 IC OPKs
39 Wondfo HPTs
1 $Tree HPT
1 expired digital HPT

Not too bad, right?

At least I shouldn't need to buy anything for a while! Being out of (or nearly out of) HPTs this last cycle when I was *sure* there was something going on drove me mad! But I think I'm set...for a month or two.

http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2c5c9a

Very strange that i Od on cd 20 as I usually O' on cd15-16. I feel like I'm kind of out of the running this month bc my hubby got so frustrated and worn out as we were bding everyday cd14-19, so by cd20 he was like "NO MORE PLEASE!!!" our last bd was cd 19 in the am.

I don't know why my O' was so late this month. I had an hsg on cd9 and that either screwed up my O or its all this ttc stress!! I use Answer opks, clear blue opks and cbfm! Yes I'm obsessed!

For my tww I have clear blue digital, frer and early-pregnancy test strips. Which do you guys recommend for early testing? I can see that everyone loves there frer but arent the early-pregnancy test strips supposed to be more sensitive? or are these what ya'll consider ICs?


Anyway, thanks for listening ladies. I'm feeling blue today bc my best friend int he whole world is 4 months preggers and she just found out today that its a boy! I love her and she and her hubby deserve all the happinnes in the world. I am happy for them, just sort of sad for me. TGIF!
If this is your first month charting how do you know you usually O on cd15-16?

Pregnant

OMG OMG OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I GOT A !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This morning I took my temp. I am 14DPO today. My temp went higher today then yesterday...which was odd (see my :chart).

I thought that was *REALLY* weird since my period was due today if I have a normal 13 day LP. So at 5 am I got up to use a dollar tree test. I peed, then used the test. It looked negative so I went back to bed.

Around 9am, DH woke up and went and showered for work. Then he came in by me and said, "Honey? I don't mean to wake you up but the test on the counter has two lines, and it looks just like the two lines it had when you got pregnant with Addison." I SHOT up and he grabbed the test for me to see.

TOTALLY HAD TWO LINES!!!!!!!!

So I had to pee RIGHT away. I took another dollar store test and it took forever. I took 2 internet cheapie tests and the showed a positive line IMMEDIATELY. Then the dollar store test showed up as well!!!!!!!!! Then I made my DH go get a digi test and it showed up as well!!!!!!!!

post #233 of 377


I could go on and on with those emoticons all day!! YAY TARA!!! So happy for you!!!! Ok, there's a few more!!!! I thought I'd just sneak on to see if there had been any word from you, and I could not be more excited!!!! A little sad we won't be in the same DDC, but not too sad!!! Whoo hoo!!!! Congratulations!!!!!!!!! Now you guys get on sending some of that sweet baby dust my way!!! Ok, these are the last ones, I promise!

ETA: So that dip at 8DPO probably was an implantation dip? You know I am new to all this and I want to know what to look for in my chart

NOPE i totally OVER slept this afternoon because someone thought it would be a good idea to have Motocross races at the little arean behind my house today...so i had to run out of the house in a hurry and didn't get a chance to test!!! I'm so frustrated!! I am thinking i'm going to try to hold out at least until monday or tuesday! I don't know yet though.
post #237 of 377
momkrupp, Ms. B. Sprout, Melek~ Thank you all soooo much!!!

I do have to say however, that I am NEVER TESTING EARLY AGAIN!!!!!!!!

With DD1 I FINALLY got a at 15DPO, and this time I got it at 14DPO. I didn't test at 13DPO so maybe it would have shown yesterday, but I'm glad I got it today since DH was home!!

My advice is to wait to test...but I SO know that is easier said than done!!! I was so upset and stressed for nothing this cycle though!! I really *REALLY* thought I was out. You are NEVER out til AF shoes though...always remember that!

I wish you all and a very easy time TTC!!!!

WOOHOO TARA WAY TO GO!!


AFM: Internet cheapies are EVIL, i tell you!! Im 8dpo (i know, i know, every early to expect BFP) and of course I poas this am. It came up with the most beautiful second line, faint though but totally there even with my arm stretched out, so while my heart was pounding i dipped two more of the same brand as the first test in the same urine and nothing, arghhhhh. So I swear off internet cheapies and ive armed myself with 9 FRER tests, cos they were on special, plus i have three other supermarket tests in the house so i think i am set, it feels odd to go to the checkout with a box of pregnancy tests and a box of tampons!!
I wont be poas until i reach 10dpo. Thankgod for being on an early shift tommorow, cos i wont have time to poas and i wont be obsessing about it all day at work.

Yup! first month charting but i have been using the cbfm and opks. i usually get a peak on cd15-16 and my cycles have been 26-30 days. this is going to be a long one fo me. today is cd28, and i'm 8dpo.

just out of curiosity i read of so many getting bfps 7-12 dpo. what tests are those ladies using? how sensitive are they? i have frer, early-pregnancy test strips, clear blue digital and ept digital. just wondering which are the most sensitive. i had read that early-pregnancy test ics were super sensative.

i was very much hoping to have a bfp by vday. i would normally have af by today or tomorrow but bc i o'd so late this month i have a ways to go.

Hi ladies!

Good to know that I'm not the only one going CRAZY this month. I've been popping in and out of these forums..TTC seems to be the only thing on my mind nowadays. (still finding myself peeking at baby gear..not helping the situation!) Anyone else find themselves peeking around at future baby goodies?

This cycle is crazy and I don't like it one bit! First off, my cycles are rather long (35+ days) and I usually ovulate around day 20. However, FF thinks I ovulated a week early. (this could be due to me being on an airplane/traveling the whole previous day..not sure though) If FF is right, I am 8 dpo, which means it about time to POAS! ::sigh:: Not sure what to think right now. My temps have been rather sporadic and I'm fairly new to FF and charting. Anyone have any opinions? Thanks!

Can't wait to get the green light to POAS. I have a load of First Response test on the bathroom counter. VERY tempting.

Congrats to all the recent BFP's! And baby dust to all.
