post #21 of 429
Speaking of emotional, I was driving the other day, and a Taylor Swift song came on, and I started absolutely BAWLING my eyes out in the car. It was so embarassing I ended up laughing at myself.

CD9 today, after I wake up. I'm starting to get to the point where I'm having to tell myself to keep waiting to test. I'm trying to figure out when the best time is, based on what days DH and I have off.

JJ: do you mean 9 DPO? I am a pansy, and wait until at least 12 DPO.

Toy Story 3 was so sweet! We saw it in 3D (b/c that was the timeslot we wanted) and the 3D isn't worth it, IMHO.

MW: yay for better O signs! fx it is soon

AFM: I think AF has finally left the house, and I will begin temping tomorrow. I wonder how this cold I have will affect my temps, if at all? I am breathing through my mouth more . . .

I think I'm emotional like that all the time. I hate it. My kids were watching the new Karate Kid the other day and I had to leave the room because I kept getting choked up. I was reading about a charity project to knit hats and scarves for wounded warriors and could barely tell my dh about it because I thought I was going to cry. I had tears in my eyes that I had to wipe away.

I'm at cd18 and still waiting to O. I'm trying not to get too anxious and frustrated but I don't think it's working very well. Just when I had started to think that maybe my cycles were getting normal. I knew I shouldn't get used to the early Os.

I'm hoping O was yesterday. My temp was up slightly today but it's questionable. I woke up early, at around 5:30, so I took my temp just in case. It was 97.3. I think I fell back to sleep for at least a little bit and woke again at 6:53, closer to my usual time of 7:00 to 7:30. Took my temp again and it was 97.7. In my FF chart, that's up slightly from my other temps. It could indicate O or not. In my Ovusoft chart, with the adjusted temps, it means nothing.

Sending everyone .

I'm starting to get anxious too JJ! I'm either 7 or 9 DPO and I'm going to start testing tomorrow. Under normal circumstances I would wait until AF was late but since my progesterone was low last time I was pg I want to find out ASAP so that I can get my levels checked and take appropriate steps.

Fingers crossed that you get a temp rise soon! DH is still around right if you need to keep DTD?

Thanks. He's here until sometime between the 12th and 15th. I sure hope I O before then. The delayed O on this cycle has now messed up all my future cycles. According to FF predictions now, I won't O again when dh is home until January.

Well maybe you won't need the cycle in January!
post #28 of 429
Annie your chart is shaping up nice!!

MW - one step at a time! Yeah, maybe you won't even need that Jan cycle!

AFM - Maybe TMI but I never have trouble going to the bathroom and for the past 3 days I've been so constipated. Ugh. I don't know what to make of it, as nothings changed diet wise. It's incredibly annoying. I feel so bloated and cranky. And now my weight is up to 140 which makes me so mad. I should be closer to 135 but I think I'm so backed up it's showing on the scale. Bastards.

Baby Cakes: Thanks! I feel more confident about this cycle for some reason. How many DPO are you again?

I like this way of thinking That's how I keep trying to frame my thought pattern.

akind1--definately meant 9dpo. lol, not CD9. That's what happens when I type tired.

Got an assignment back from one of my classes today, and I got a whopping 15-20% lower on it that I thought. I literally sat there with my jaw open. I'm so angry, partially at myself, and partially at the teacher. I don't tihnk she explained very well what she expected of us, and I wrote accordingly. Feel like it's completely ruining my day now.
post #32 of 429
JJ, sorry you are having a not so good day.

AFM: I went to the DT on my lunch break to stock up on tests. I broke down and took one when I got back to my office. BFN of course. Not sure why I even thought I would see something different in the middle of the day! Anyways, they've changed the tests slightly! The cassettes are MUCH smaller than they used to be and the one I took left this long vertical purple smudge on it for the longest time until it completely dried. It almost looked like a crazy +/- test. Has anyone else seen these yet?
post #33 of 429
Haven't seen them, but I have two dollar store tests in my dresser. I'll keep an eye out. All the ones I've used to far have been the same kind.

I'm trying to convince myself that waiting longer is better, because then I don't jhave to go buy more. Thus, with only two, I should wait several more days. We'll see how it goes. Tomorrow is 10dpo, and I have a feeling I might give in.

Thanks, again. That's what I'm hoping. I was getting worried because I felt like I was coming down with something yesterday. I started using my last box of Zicam nasal swabs and taking echinacea. I hardly feel anything today so, hopefully, I'm getting it before it really becomes something. If I get sick, dtd again would probably not happen.

I haven't seen any new DT tests. I've got a few so I'll see what they are like. I have had them do that streaky purple thing before. It sometimes comes and goes until it's completely done reacting. I try not to watch them develop because of that but it's hard.

JJ ~ Sorry about the score on your assignment. Maybe you can talk to your teacher about it. Explain what you did based on what you thought she wanted and see what she says.
post #35 of 429
Yeah the DT tests are funny. The outer packaging looks exactly the same, it's just the cassette that has changed. It was an interesting surprise when I opened it up! They are also harder to open up because they are so small now.
post #36 of 429
Im insanely jealous of all of you who are close to testing!
post #37 of 429
Baby Cakes: It will be your turn soon! And actually I may not be that far ahead of you. I may only be 7 DPO. So you could start testing insanely early like me!

Funny story from earlier today. DH called me right after I left the DT. He asked me where I was and I told him. He said "What? I don't see you" and then told me that he was at the DT near my office. I blurted out "That DT doesn't sell HPTs" and he said "Why are you buying HPTs?" So I said "Ummm because there's a chance that I'm pg." and his response was "Oh really?"

Yeah buddy what do you think happens when we DTD whenever we want and do not abstain when I'm fertile?
post #38 of 429
So... I thought I had convinced myself that I was going to test tomorrow morning, since DH and I have the day off together. And then I went to canyouseealine and looked at the sample pos tests from 10dpo. They are all sooo faint you can't even see them. I don't want one like that where I'm not going to be sure and have to wait another day to take another one anyways.

Anyone take ones at 10dpo and get obvious positives? I'm thinking I'll wait until 12 now, like my plan was. I'd rather have a dark one.
post #39 of 429
When I tested w/DD I was 11 dpo and got an OBVIOUS line. I would wait til 11dpo at the earliest. I know, so much easier said than done!! But I'm with you. I don't want a squinter or a tilter or a maybe. If the babe's there, the babe's there -- I want a LINE!!

I decided I'm randomly going to temp during the 2ww just to see where my temps are. Check this out!!

Doesn't mean $hit, I know, but it's fun and makes me feel like I'm doing SOMETHING rather than just sitting around and waiting.
post #40 of 429
JJ, with my last pregnancy, I tested on the evening of what I thought was 14 DPO and I got the faintest of lines. Turns out I was 11 DPO. The next morning, I tested again and got better lines.

O.K. so I'm going to say I officially hate the new DT tests. I didn't take a test this AM because my temps are trending downward so when I came in to work this morning, I glanced at the test that I took yesterday afternoon and there's a second line there now. Stupid evaps! I've NEVER gotten an evap before and now this stupid skinny DT test has one! It's pretty convincing too because it even has some color. But it was not there yesterday afternoon.

Oh and nice temp jump Baby Cakes!
