Well, this is our first cycle TTC for real. DS is 10 months and I still nurse, so we used condoms except for a few "oopses." We thought we accidentally caught an egg a few months back, but did not. We were surprised at how sad we were and knew we were ready to TTC #2 soon...so here we are. Got what I think is a bfp today at 9 dpo but not celebrating just yet. It's very light and I know ICs are notorious for evaps. I saw the line come up at the 3 min mark though and I have never had an evap happen before like 10...so cautiously optimistic.

Congrats Mistral, I saw your new thread!!!

I'm really struggling with the chronic fatigue and muscle pain right now. Mornings are especially hard because I'm tired and hurt so badly. I just keep praying that it will get better. It's bad enough that I'm really starting to wonder if we should try to have another baby. I can't do much around the house. I kind of feel like it would be really selfish of me to bring another life into the world.

OK, pity party over.

I hope you get your BFP.

Thank you, I'm excited but nervous, my blood test will hopefully make me feel more at ease.

MrsD08, I'm doing fine with the thread. It's really not too labor intensive and it gives me something kind of fun to do. Thank you for offering to help though.

beautyonthebeach, I know you said it was faint yesterday, but I can't wait to see how much darker it is today.

Melek~ I am SO sorry found you today! WHAT a BUMMER! You sound like you are in good spirits though, and I really hope that the next cycle is IT!

AFM~ My temp dipped today (far too early to be ) and I'm thinking it might have been implantation. I didn't have any spotting, but I am slightly crampy now (started late afternoon) and my breasts seem a bit sorer than normal. Hoping hoping hoping!!! I will see what my temp does tomorrow, but I'm REALLY gonna try to hold off and test on Sunday at the earliest! LOL! It depends on my temp though. Usually they say about 2 days after the implantation dip you could get a test so we'll see!!!

Tara Thanks for thinking of me!!!

for an implantation dip! I will be stalking you here waiting to see if you get your BFP! You would be late October, right? So, I might sneak onto your DDC forum and say "hi" once in awhile if I catch a November baby

Oh Tara, I HOPE this is an implantation dip! FYI, a friend of mine got a light BFP on an IC and FRER the morning after her dip. Just sayin.

Yea I agree, everyone else I've talked to has been all Saints fans... but we're totally gonna win anyway! :-)

Lawmama- sorry AF found you!! :-( Baby dust for next time!

Anjuli- sorry your fatigue is getting worse!!

Tara- YAY for hopeful implantation bleeding!!! I'm seriously crossing my fingers for you!!

Mistral- CONGRATS!!!!

Side note to all- SERIOUSLY don't know what to do now... woke up this morning and grabbed the wrong thermometer. I normally use the white one and couldn't find it so after sitting up for less than 3 seconds I took my temp with the purple one and got 97.7. Then literally 10 seconds after that one was done put the white one in since I found it under my pillow and got 96.8... argh!!! So I put both temps in and the higher one seems crazy since it would be the highest temp of my whole cycle and when I put the lower one in, FF deleted my cross hairs and said I haven't O'd yet (@ CD28). Can you all take a look?

Thanks ladies! Have a great weekend!! (And GO COLTS!!!!!!!!!!!)
post #98 of 472
You ladies are awesome! Thanks so much for the and support! I was feeling pretty sad today, but you ladies have definitely raised my spirits!

Tara, I am hoping you are having an October baby, even though I would love to be in your DDC!! I will definitely keep you posted on my OPKs. We are getting the 20 day box, so I will probably start testing as soon as the witch is gone! lol Especially since I had such a long cycle this time, I have no idea when to expect an O, so I want to be sure to catch it

Erica, I have no idea how to read charts I am still so new to this, but I am hoping that you get the outcome you want!!! And thank you for the baby dust! I will take all I can get!

And sidenote, I love, love, love my DH for supporting me through this and buying me the digi OPKs even though I said I was done with them last month...he knows me better than I know myself!
post #99 of 472
Melek~ This current cycle..I used 18 OPKs!! LOL! I used 3 a day sometimes! When did you O last cycle? Did you have definitive O signs?

Hopeful Jo and EricaRN~ I live in Green Bay, WI.....and am a big Packer fan. I am very sad they lost. I am also a semi Favre fan...so the Vikings losing to the Saints hurt a bit too. But now I don't know who to cheer for!

EricaRN~ I would keep the high temp. It doesn't look that odd to me. SEe what happens tomorrow. It's not uncommon for one temp to be a bit above the rest. That happens during my cycles frequently actually!! That is weird that they both have such a difference though. You might want to get a new one or check to see how off they are...like stick them both under your tongue at the same time and see how different/similar they are?


beautyonthebeach83~ OH! You gave me SO much hope right there!!!!!!!!! I am definitely gonna test tomorrow morning. I'm even gonna get the tests out so I remember (sometimes I'm so tired that I forget and then get SO mad at myself!!)


Okay ladies I better get to bed and for a

Well, I have tried the thermometer thing a couple of different times actually and they always come out exactly the same. That's why I'm not sure what to do. And my gut feeling was that the lower temp was more correct, but there was SUCH a difference... plus the lower temp made me lose my crosshairs... so obviously I dont WANT to pick that one. But the higher one just LOOKS crazy when you stick it on my chart.... that would mean it goes WAY up, WAY down, WAYY up, and then whatever today was.

...... that brings me to my second point... I have NO IDEA what happened today but my alarm didn't go off! I was so exhausted I guess it's possible that it did and I just didn't hear it, but usually if that happens the screen still stays up and it wasn't still up when I did get up and look at it. Or I guess I might've woken up in my sleep and reached over and turned it off and have NO recollection. haha. That's sad. Anyway, I didn't temp at all this morning because I was already up (and standing) for about 5 minutes before it dawned on me that I didnt' remember taking my temp this morning... oh well, guess we'll see what happens tomorrow. Just makes yeserday's confusing temp even more frustrating.

Tara- also, you KNOW who to root for: The COLTS!!!! The saints beat the Vikings in a B.S. call by the ref, taking out Favre and the Vikings from the Superbowl... therefore you HAVE to root for the Colts. lol. Also, the Saints' coach admitted they were trying to injure Favre to get him outta the game and made a statement over a week ago that he was going to try to injure Peyton and the rest of our start players also... To me that's just over the top and inappropriate to try to injure anyone in an attempt to win. It's unsportsman-like and I just can't believe more people aren't outraged. I would think so even if I wasn't a Colt's fan. Anyway, that's my 2 cents on that... lol. Obviously I want everyone to root for the Colts :-)

I'm hoping for a BFP for you Tara and everyone else who's in their TWW. :-)
