**TTC in our 20's FEBRUARY** - Page 2

post #21 of 472
Monday Check-In:
Name: Crystal
Date: 2/1/10
Chart: None. (I don't temp b/c it would be inaccurate since my DS still wakes me up randomly some nights/mornings)
Where are you in your cycle: CD20, approx. 6 dpo
Appointments: None
Symptoms if they apply: Gassy, crampy, achy back, tinkling lots, constipated, fatigued, hungry constantly, moooooody but too soon for PMS, vivid dreams, more cm than I should have in the 2ww, etc
Testing: Tested this morning. Got a line sooo faint I chalk it up to evaporation. Plus I waited too long to check it, so it probably is an evap. I'm only 6 dpo and have NEVER gotten a real, undeniable BFP until cd25 at the earliest.
Thoughts: DH and I feel good about this cycle. We bd'ed lots and I am having very familiar feelings. This would be my 3rd time pregnant. (Lost the first 2 though.) I am hoping these symptoms aren't wishful thinking messing with my head.
****************
Katie, sorry AF is coming. Booo. But let's hope this is your last AF for a while!

Anjuli, good luck at your appt. Hope all is well.

Tara, you're not out yet. I had no idea when I o'ed last time either, and I got my DS anyway.

Erica, yay for crosshairs! Your cycle is like mine but a day after.

Samantha, I hope O date is soon for you! Sorry you're having to wait.

Christina, sorry you're feeling discouraged. I know lots of women who won't test positive til 15dpo and beyond! You're not out til AF shows.

Rachel, I hear you on the sore boobs during TTC. It is a cruel, cruel joke. Why must pg and pms symptoms be sooo similar?! Lucky you having a distraction from the last week. So do I...DS. I'd go craaazy without him, but while he's sleeping it's easy to obsess. (Like now.)

Jo, I admire your patience, and DH's! My DH bugged me all weekend to test, and I am barely 6 dpo today. Yayyy for testing tomorrow!

Karen, FX!!!! Hope you caught the eggie this time. Even if you "o" while DH is away sperm can theoretically live 5 days you know. Here's hoping...

Crystal- So much for DH's patience! He called me just now asking if I took a test this morning. I told him- No! You wanted me to wait! That's what he gets for thinking I'm crazy for peeing on sticks :-P Tomorrow, it will be. Or tonight, but we're having guests, and I think I'll not be able to keep it a secret.

Monday Check-In:
Name: Melek
Date: 2-1-10
Chart:http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2ae0eb
Where are you in your cycle: CD 32, 9DPO
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply: heartburn (which I have had off/on since pregnancy with DS), fatigue, occasional nausea and dizziness, cramping around time of O. I thought for sure AF was coming around the time FF recorded an O for me
Testing: Trying to wait until Wednesday at 11DPO to test if no AF. If BFN and no AF by Saturday, I'll test again (or I may buy 3 more tests so I can test more...have to hide that from DH lol)
Thoughts: Well, this is the longest cycle (by 3 days) I have had since stopping BC. I am feeling really encouraged, especially b/c I felt PMSy a week or a week and a half ago and thought for sure AF would show, but nothing. Also, Af has started earlier and earlier in each cycle after I stopped BC, and didn't this month, so that's encouraging. I am just very anxious for Wednesday to get here!!! I know 11DPO is pretty early, but I am hoping to get a BFP!

Jo, I am thinking of you. I really hope you get your BFP soon! I know this limbo is killer!

Katie, sorry AF is coming I hope next month is it for you!

Anjuli, GL today. Let us know how it goes

To everyone else I can't remember offhand, sending lots of positive thoughts your way!!!!
post #25 of 472
Lawmama~ GL waiting to test! LOL! I am a freak about POAS....that's why I love IC's! LOL!

HopefulJo~ LOL about your hubby!! That is too funny!! Go get some IC's! LOL! Or dollar store tests!

beautyonthebeach83~ Hang in there! Lots of positive thoughts! Every pregnancy is different as far as when you get your BFP! Just keep remembering that! I got a BFP at 15DPO...but got BFN's at 9, 10, 11, 12, and 13!!

TheDivineMrsM~ I'm gonna test on Feb. 8th too!! We can be testing buddies!

MrsD08~ You had quite the dip there on your chart! That could be a really good sign! Don't give up yet!!!!

And thanks for the encouragement! I'm thinking I O'd on CD15.....but tomorrow will tell more. As far as I'm concerned I'm 2 DPO!

EricaRN~ Thanks!! I think that's when I O'd too!! I looked at your chart...and I am thinking maybe you actually O'd yesterday..? Your temp rise was MUCH higher this morning...what do you think? Would your other symptoms line up with a O on the 31st or does it seem to you like FF has it right?

OJazzy1~ Hope you have a nice strong O!

Ojazzy1, I linked your chart.

Sorry I haven't been around much today. Mondays are always super busy. I'll hop on once DS is in bed to read more thoroughly.

Hi all! Can you please add me to TTC#2? I am 26 years old, and we've been casually TTC for about 7 months now (basically just not using protection, b/c I'm nursing DD and not even sure if I'm ovulating). It took us 9 months of very active trying to conceive DD. Thanks & GL to everyone!

Monday Check-In: Yay! It's Monday!
Name: First Shot Photo
Date: 01/02!
Chart: My Chart!
Where are you in your cycle: CD 2~~
Appointments: None as of right now...
Symptoms if they apply: Cramps...and back aches. My period pains have come back with a vengeance.
Testing: None yet. On CD 7 is when I'm going to start doing OPKs though.
Thoughts: I'm super glad to be back TTC!!

On another note, Fertility Friend is based in Canada, and my bank account blocks transactions from Canada apparently!! Renewing my VIP is becoming annoying...

I bought more tests today, Tara! I couldn't help myself! I went this weekend to a dollar store and bought 2, but I used one this w/e, so I only had one left (which I, of course, used today...I am sooo weak!). The tests at this dollar store were actually a little over $4 a piece, so I went to a different one and found the actual dollar tests. Now, I have been up researching BFP at 10DPO (where I will be tomorrow) on FF I really don't know how some people see the positives on these tests...to me, a lot of the positives look like negatives! But I am hoping that I will get a BFP in the next few days. I bought 4, so I will be able to test through Friday, and I have a digi to use on Saturday if AF does not come (or before if I get a BFP ), just in case I am not reading these dollar store brands properly!

Thanks for the kind words today ladies!

Monday Check-In:
Name: Mistral
Date: 2/2/10
Chart: In homepage
Where are you in your cycle: 9DPO
Appointments:P4 labs yesterday
Symptoms if they apply: headache, constipation...
Testing'm trying to hold out to 11 dpo.
Thoughts: One minute i'm pregnant, the next minute i'm not. I've had a few weird dreams lately, and I'm just ready to know. But my chart isn't very encouraging so at times I think that I might be afraid to POAS.
post #32 of 472

Temp dip on 8DPO?

Weird... my temp dipped a little today, but last cycle, my temps were still rising on CD21/8dpo. I usually get brown spotting on CD 20/21 too. It was conspiciously absent yesterday.

A little bit of hope is a dangerous thing...

MrsD - Abigail is one of DH's favorite names.

xTara - Want to wait until Feb 9 with me? I want to hold out until I'm officially late; I can't look at another BFN.
post #33 of 472
I got a temp rise this morning, I got a temp rise this morning! Although it does mean we missed O completely, at least it means I could have O'd. Now just hoping it stays up...
post #34 of 472
Whoo hoo MrsD!!! Hoping it stays up!

MrsM, I hope you can wait to POAS and I hope that AF is very, very late!

Mistral, I know exactly how you feel!!! I am 10DPO myself, and I have been testing since Monday (ok and a couple before that I KNEW would be negative, but I tested anyway).

For ladies who take Maca or have their DHs/DPs taking Maca--how long did it take to "kick in"?
post #36 of 472
Anjuli, could I please be added to TTC #2 when you have a moment?

Sorry AF showed by the way. Fx for this next cycle though!

Jo, funny about your DH! I have been testing since 5 dpo even though I have never heard of a bfp that early. BFN this morning, of course. (7 dpo)

Xtara, thanks for the encouragement! It's easy to forget all cycles are different. I agree that ICs are awesome. I don't feel bad about testing daily since they are soo cheap! lol! But all the bfn's are a bummer. Sure wish I was more patient!

MrsD, sorry you missed O, but yay for rising temps! Good luck the maca. I haven't tried it myself so I have no advice to give.

Lawmama, you crack me up. I'm the same way with testing.

Mrs.M, hope is a good thing, and in your case I think it's warranted. Fx!

Mistral, I'm with you on the dreams and other sx. And I too feel confident about this cycle one moment and negative the next. Siiigh. But it's not over til it's over. Good luck!

First-shot, welcome and yay for TTC! Good luck!

Sorry if I missed anyone but hugs and good luck to all. Hoping for some inspirational bfp's in the next few days!

Different effects kicked in differently... increased energy was almost immediate. Increased libido was hell (i mean, kicked in within a month, but 2 months before DF came home lol) increased EWCM was within half a month... not sure how fast it would have been since I started taking it on cd20 of a previous cycle and by the next cycle my EWCM was immensely abundant.

LOL!!! Glad to know I am not alone b/c I am pretty sure DH thinks I am a little bonkers right now! And it doesn't help that I have started to post my tests to canyouseealine.com (in addition to posting them on my TTC related flickr) I told DH I am going to post one every day until I either get a BFP or AF comes...he won't vote b/c he says he is too close to the situation, but I secretly think it's because he doesn't want to encourage me! lol

I'm pretty patient, and will only test if I feel I have really good reason. The triphasic chart was a good reason at 12DPO... and 15DPO... and again today, though my temp dropped. All BFN, and I think AF's coming (dropped temps & convincing spotting this afternoon).

So, now my question is, what just happened? Why did I have a 18+ day luteal phase, when it's very regularly 14, and my ovulation day was clear? Chemical pregnancy? a short-lived cyst? Is it something I should do something about? Or chalk it up as a fluke?
