[QUOTE=Daisy420;15852617]Thanks girls for your support and understanding

Amanda~We've had several recent bfps who had the same symptom

GOOD! I have been very tired as well. But I figure I won't be because I have a zit. I always get them befor AF. So I figure prob out.

I'm back! I got pregnant while nursing back in March but eventually had a missed miscarriage which became an incomplete miscarriage and is now FINALLY complete 5 months after conceiving. Eesh. This is my first ovulatory cycle post-miscarriage. I'm currently 4 days post-O so please add me to waiting to test (or whatever it's called these days -- I didn't look to see if everything is still running the same as it used to).

Here's my chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/15c6bc

Same with me! If I get a huge zit on my chin (or more than one, which is usually the case) I kinda know I'm out. I might stay in denial about it being an actual indicator, but when one big one cropped up this past cycle at around 10 dpo, I *knew*...

Sorry AF arrived
As for break outs, I've actually gotten them with the last 2 of my pgs. So for me, it doesn't help much. When I was pg with ds#3, I was in such denial, I swore up and down I wasn't pg because I had cramps and broke out pretty bad. After like 6 negative pg tests, I finally got a bfp on cd 40. I had actually O'd when I was expecting af, hence all the bfns.

My dh was talking baby again today . It was cute, he said "you wanna try now?" referring to bd, and "you want another girl don't you?" Then afterwards he said "So are you pregnant?" I laughed and said, no you have like a week yet for that ....I love it though that we're actually "talking" about it now. My last pg was the only one we really discussed while ttc and it happened within 2 cycles so its neat. Although, he said "maybe my swimmers aren't any good anymore." earlier and I had to tell him, I really don't think so. He just never believed me before when I said that bfing really is a form of b/c. We always used withdrawal when preventing when I was bfing, even though I told him it wasn't necessary . I think the neighbor getting a bfp has put it in the forefront of his brain now lol.

Speaking of which, She got married in July, and sleeps on the couchwith her 2 yo son in his crib in the living room. Strange. Apparently they don't ahhheeemm very much. I found out recently she has been sleeping with my dh's friend who is living with us for months before the wedding and as recently as 3 weeks ago!!! We actually caught the in his room on their wedding night after the groom passed out from drinking too much. So there is some question there as to whether there is a chance he is the dad????????/ SERIOUSLY!!!!!!! aaaahhhhh

Hi, Mamas!

I'm on CD 33 now. Tested on CD 31 and got BFN. Still no AF or signs of AF, but no definite pregnancy signs either (except maybe being exhausted for the last week or so). I have no idea when I O'd.... tracked CP & CM, but didn't bother to record it on FF this month. LOL.

I really get frustrated with these irregular cycles. Last month my cycle was only 28 days, the cycle before that was 33 days, before that was 38, before that 30, before that 45, before that 32, so on and so on.... you get the idea. It is so unpredictable, so I really never know when to expect AF or when to think I might be "late".

sarahmck~ Wecome back. on having a missed miscarriage

filiadeluna~ on the bfn. Maybe you O'd later and your not not "late" yet.


This cycle has shown me how bad it is to go by just cm to figure out O, good thing i'm temping.

post #190 of 336
sarahmck - so sorry about the miscarriage. I hope your journey here is short.
post #191 of 336
sarahmck: hugs. So sorry!

filiadeluna: You probably haven't O'd yet. That's hard! *hugs*

Baby_Cakes: sorry about AF! Yeah I usually get breakouts around AF too.

AFM: Been feeling ether AF-y or pregnant lately. Bloated, increased sense of smell, achy down low in my abdomen, ect. So today after the gym when I was going pee, I wiped and there was a bit of brown color in the leftover semen from last night. (TMI) So I checked my cervix and there was red blood! Maybe this is the beginning of my first PPAF? I hope so! It's the first blood I've seen since 8 weeks postpartum. Anyone else's 1st PPAF start with very minimal spotting but then turn into the real thing?
post #192 of 336
Thanks, Ladies!

Well, I am on CD 34. I have had some ever-so-slight light brown spotting mixed with clearish stuff. I wouldn't have noticed it if I weren't looking on the toilet paper. I still feel like AF will come by tonight or early tomorrow.
post #193 of 336
I'm in the TWW. It's highly unlikely I conceived as we only dtd on CD10 and CD21 though!

I was using OPKs as DS is still so unpredictable at night and I don't get long stretches. The OPKs were kinda strange (see this post http://www.mothering.com/discussions....php?t=1262752). I used my last OPK on Friday CD20 and it was still positive. I would have liked to had one more to check Saturday but who knows!

Kalishanti~Yep, I think my 1st 2 periods post delivery were on the light side and started out with spotting. Hope this is the start of something for you .

filladeluna~I hope AF stays away .

Well, tomorrow pretty much starts my fertile phase .....I'm of course more than happy that it is finally approaching! With the 11 day lp last cycle, I am VERY hopeful that maybe my body is ready to conceive again . Here'e hoping Miss Katie Kat is cooperative

yeah, the irregularity is killing me too. I used to be SO clockwork (27/28 days, EVERY time) that this weirdness is so hard to get used to. My cycles so far postpartum:

first one: 95 days (and this started w/ my first period when he was 6 months old)
second: 67 days
third: 28 days (thought maybe I'd be back to normal, though wasn't TTC, so wasn't THAT excited, LOL)
fourth: 52 days (so much for regular again!)

and now I am on CD40. I am pumping so much less, (0-1x a day at work now, instead of 2x) that I really though I'd get more regular, but Z still is a such a bfing boy on the weekends, and overnight, that it probably screws it up some still.


I vaguely had that hungry-nauseous feeling yesterday, so got up some hope that maybe I am pregnant and not just having a long O-less cycle. I temped again today and still holding steady at 98.4. I so wish I had temped at the start of this cycle! I either O'd, or have way higher temps now than I did pre-pregnancy, since no way 98.4 was a pre-O temp back then.

and I need to figure out a better thermometer. Got up at 5am, before Z, to temp, and it woke him up, even muffling the sound. Since he's right next to me its just too loud I think. anyone know of a silent backlit thermometer? But I wonder if my sleep is too erratic to temp right at all, these high temps are so strange to me.

I almost succumbed yesterday and tested, since the nausea made me think I was, but I really *don't* have any tests in the house. I must have thrown them all out during the move! I was surprised, I figured I'd have found a lone one somewhere.

I'm not sure I'm motivated enough to go buy one I don't have many symptoms, my supply seems fine as well which I figured would change a bit, though I do have to say my letdown while normally uncomfortable is now bordering on actually painful. Not the nursing though, just the letdown. But that might be from the weird nursing pattern we have going on now as well.

ugh, just waiting for a temp shift (where would it go though!? to 99 degrees?) or an AF here. I think if I get to 50 days (since a recent period was that long) Ill succumb and test. I have been crampy the last week, so I keep thinking its around the corner, but no sign yet.
post #197 of 336
Aaarrgh AF found me and at only 8 dpo . So please move me to Waiting to O. My previous 3 cycles have been at 12 and 13 dpo. I did however find out that I am a little hypothyriod so we increased my medication. I did start taking the higher amount midcycle. I thought about waiting, but then decided it was better to get regulated as soon as possible. Hopefully, everything will regulate enough for us to conceive soon!
post #198 of 336
Cd 27 here. Waiting til the morning to test if Af has not found me by then. Feeling a little crampy, and my back aches so I am prob out this month!
But I will just go on to next month. I am not out til the ol witch shows!
