I'd be interested in that too, Dana. And so would all my victims in lunch detention.

The homicidal PMS might have a case here, and I'm definitely weepy...my ex-DW and I are still sorting through the wreckage nearly eight months later and nearly had it out last night and I was bawling like I haven't in months, but it was followed up fairly quickly by the urge to run her down with my car...something that also hasn't happened in months.

AmandaHope - We've actually discussed DP carrying a child, but the idea seems very foreign to her. I know she'd love the biological connection, but the idea of something growing inside her and later breastfeeding kind of freak her out. She also has a serious phobia of getting blood drawn, which is something she would have to overcome first.

Sarah - Welcome! I can relate to your long cycles; mine average 35 days. Hopefully this cycle is the one for you!

Dana - You are so funny! Inseminating before an Indigo Girls concert couldn't be gayer... Who knows, it could be lucky too! Being cranky, crampy, backachey, and homocidal so early in your cycle are possible good indications, for you anyway. Those around you - not so much.

As a matter of fact, all of you in the TWW have promising signs. I've got appendages crossed for each of you!

AFM, just waiting for AF to show up. I never thought I'd actually look forward to it, but I want to get it over with so we can get this party started!

When I went to bed last night, I was going to test this morning, even though tomorrow's really test day, but this morning I got too scared and didn't want to deal with a whole day at school fretting about a negative. If I'm brave enought to test tomorrow and it's BFN I might have to take off work~ last time, I just came to work after my disappointment and just kept going into my book storage room and crying, so, not a very productive day. Though staying home and crying is also not productive. And since I'm on the progesterone, AF won't come until I stop taking it, so I can't even figure it out that way, I'm going to have to be brave at some point, but I'm still kind of in despair.

Wehrli~ so so sorry about your temp. Do keep us posted~ it might just be a cold morning!

Hugs to everyone xox

Thank you! My LP was about 9 days way back when, so now I take progesterone, so yeah, mine is about 35 days too. I hope AF shows up super fast and then you don't get her again for 9 months!

Try not to stress about one temp. (although I know that's easier said than done), remember the whole TCF advice about looking at the forest rather than the trees in your chart

Hugs to you, fingersx crossed tight for when you do decide to test - I can see the rock and the hard place you're in about when to test/and what to do if it is negative. And UGH progesterone, I feel you there.

Welcome Sarah - I hope that your time here is short ...

I too am a Sarah. So that means 3 Amanda's, 2 Sarah's and 2 with rescue dogs...


Well a little update from us, I completed my blood work for my most recent Beta which was negative and that is probably the first time that you will see that as a good thing on this board.

Now, I have to have my next period (due around 3/6/10) and complete a follow up Ultrasound 10 days later to make sure that the thickened lining on the last ultrasound is not still there (they were worried about a particular spot in my uterus and the possibility of retained tissue). It is unlikely that I will have any issues as the Beta continued to drop. SO if the ultrasound is fine we will get the okay to start trying THIS MONTH!!! I am so excited. To top things off my chart is looking more normal

LibraryLady - Be strong! I don't know how you can wait to test, but I totally understand you wanting to avoid bad news. If you do take the day off, maybe try to plan something fun ahead of time to take your mind off things... But then sometimes you just need time to mourn. With a little luck, you'll be celebrating tomorrow instead of crying. Sending baby dust your way!

painefaria - Fingers crossed for a good ultrasound and the chance to try again this cycle!

wehrli - Sarah is right, one temp doesn't mean a thing! Don't read too much into it. (HA!) Hang in there!

Off the deep end

So, I was digging through my school bag looking for a key and found an OPK I'd stashed in there last cycle and just because I'm kind of going insane I decided to pee on it. There is a faint line, and while I'm not seriously using it as an HPT, it was nice to see a little line develop. It might be the only line I get to see this cycle, and at least it's giving me something else to obsess about for the remainder of the afternoon.

Painefaria~ good luck in your future tries, and with your ultrasound. Hopefully the way will be clear and your next beta will be good news.

Wehrli~ excited to hear about tomorrow's temp. Luck and love and fairydust to us all! (Even krazy ol' me who's peeing on opks...)

wehrli- just jumping in to say that my temp went down at 6dpo, too. It was an implantation dip!
post #31 of 302
Wherli and LibraryLady- Here is some magic!

AmandaHope- even weirder, my new pup is a Shepherd and Queensland Heeler mix. She is only 5 lbs at 8 weeks and is mostly black with a little white on her chest. I am also an educator but teach at community college. I am also working on my dissertation (someone else is too but can’t remember who). The next time I change my name, I’ll consider Amanda to make it even more eerie.

Dana_305- That is a very gay insem story, nice!

AFM- Day 11 and I do not have a positive LH surge yet but my cervix is definitely opening and clear fluids are present
post #32 of 302
wehrli - Of course!!! IMPLANTATION DIP! Why didn't I think of that? I read all about it... I was also looking at some successful charts on FF, and I saw more than one with a dip on 6 DPO. Stick, baby, stick!

thanks everyone...

i had thought of implantation dip, too, but of course doubt won over that instantaniously.. i had a plethora of symptoms today.. however, with every realization, immediate doubt. lol! i'm sure you all know what i mean!
sore throat this morning
cramps are back today
nipples are on fire, so sore
frequent urination, though less than yesterday, about once an hour
needed chocolate cake
extreme fatigue early afternoon through now, i'm going to bed early
random drippy nose
and i have been a little snarky today (sorry DP)
now that i have admitted all of those "symtoms" i am going to feel ultra silly next tuesday if i have a BFN. ah, well.

max, yay for fertility signs starting to line up!!

library, i've heard lots of stories of ttc'rs peeing on opks in the tww! good luck! FXFU

monarch, thanks for stopping in to give me some hope... i needed it!!!

painefaria, that's a good looking chart... sounds like things are moving along!

waving to all!

7dpo

well, my temp is back up some... it was 98.48 this morning, 98.17 yesterday morning, and 98.62 the morning before. i'd upload my chart (for you chart stalkers) but i can't remember how...
i also woke up 4 times to pee last night, i usually wake once a night to use the bathroom... i had a drippy nose in the middle of the night that turned into draining, yuck!... woke with a sore throat, and a drippy nose. i think i'm getting a cold... and i just got over one! boo.

have a good day!
post #35 of 302

:(

I peed on sticks yesterday evening and this morning and BFN. My sweetie found info about how the Target store-brand sticks are not very good, and I might go to the store this afternoon and get something else, but I don't know that torturing myself with blank sticks will do any good. I feel really cold and dead inside today (which I guess I am, ha ha).

Wehrli, I'm SO GLAD about your temp going up. Everything is crossed for you. Who else is waiting to test? Where's Chiquitayy??

library, so sorry about the bfn... it ain't over 'til it's over... i was just on twoweekwait.com looking at pee sticks... there were some really late bfps recorded there. FX that it ain't over for you...
post #37 of 302
My sweetie has just convinced me to buy more peesticks and not give up yet, but I still don't hold out much hope. The doc says that if you get a bfn 14 days IUI then you can believe it, but so so so many other women have gotten their bfps 16 or 17 days later. I guess I just feel completely confused along with my disappointment. Ugh, this is all so hard!


Thanks for your kindness wehrli~ I'll keep you all posted of course, AND everything crossed for your success xo

Librarylady and wehrli and everyone else who needs it

AFM Please could you move me to waiting to know I've been sick for the past few days and then suddenly I had a positive opk late on cd 13 (Tuesday) which has never happened before. Anyway I inseminated yesterday afternoon so now it's just time to wait. I'm trying not to get my hopes as they've been dashed too many times.
post #39 of 302
Fingers crossed for you TigerLily~ I totally know about having your hopes dashed and not wanting to get them up. Hope everything goes to plan
post #40 of 302
Wherli ~ everything sounds promising Here is the way that I share my Chart. I find that the easiest way to post your chart go to the website that you use and find the page you are looking for (FF I link to my home page) copy the site address come to Mothering and start a post. You can highlight any word and then click on the little world with a chain link up in the tool bar. It will bring up a box, paste your link and hit okay. When the box closes you should have the link in your post.

Librarylady - Don't give up hope... no period yet = still a possibility

Good luck Tigerlilly and here's to a stressfree TWW
