Hmm, if you had those dark opks around the same dpo as me, I'm just going to assume I'm pg then!

 

Hehe. He is pretty cute, if I do say so myself. Yesterday, a girl at Subway thought he was girl and was confused when I asked her for the boy kid's meal bag. She said, "But that's the boy one. This (the one she was going to give me) is the girl one." She apologized profusely when I told her he was a boy. LOL I wasn't mad. Maybe it's time for a haircut?

 

That would be a good assumption except it happened to me the cycle before this one. The one opk I took this cycle when I was trying to confirm the evap looking BFPs I was getting was much lighter. Although, looking back now I think I might have been pg that cycle, too, but it just didn't really go anywhere. I got the same kind of evap looking lines with my ICs that cycle as I did this cycle. They never got darker, though, so I just assumed they were evaps. After seeing my first BFPs from this cycle, though, I think the ones from last cycle may have been BFP, too. Did that make any sense? It seems like I'm writing in circles.

 

We have a group going on FF called PUPO Power. It's a new group. Just started when I was 1 week post-O, before I got my digital BFP. It was originally called 2 Weeks PG! PUPO stands for pregnant until proven otherwise. It's a positive thinking group. We got what I think was a record # of BFPs. Out of less than 10 original members, about half got BFPs within a week of the group starting. It's pretty cool! So, yeah, definitely consider yourself pg.

Wow, super cute boy! Sweaters are beautiful! Good job mama!

 

I'm joining the PUPO because of that strange low grade fever I had and then lots of prickly feelings the next day on my lower R side and mild cramping today. It could be all in my head....well except the fever! I've only had 2 fevers in my life before the other day. I know 99.3 isn't a fever but I felt feverish and ill and took like 3 naps during the day. I was sick! Then 6 hours later, NOT sick! I'm PUPO!

so just how unlikely is it to catch the first pp eggy?

That sounds like a really neat group!!

 

I love your son's hair!  Don't cut it!

 

I'm having the worst head cold or allergy attack EVER today.  Ugh, I'm just laying on the couch while DD plays w/her duplos.  I feel awful.  DH is busy working on renovations and is actually really aggravating me.  But it's better that he's out of my hair, I suppose.  I just wish he showed a little bit of sympathy (or even remotely cared) that I don't feel well.

Lioness: I can't find my copy of Breastfeeding and Natural Child Spacing, but I think the odds are only 6% that you'll even release an egg before your first pp period...not sure if that's exactly your question, though.

 

MW: I love the sweaters! 

post #346 of 429

okay this has got to be it!  Today I've had all kinds of new symptoms....tons of watery cf, sore nipples that I can feel even when I'm still; off & on mild cramps; feeling like I'm hungover but I'm not- my head feels all fuzzy & I have dry mouth; bloody mucus from nose; and now shocks in my lower abdomen. Like sudden, sharp "zings" that really hurt and can't be "all in my head".  High temp of 99+ again. My normal temps are never that high. Come on! This has got to be it! I have a messed up chart too! That high temp is not characteristic for me and it lines up with the day I had a low grade "fever". Now I have one again!  http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2dab06  I must be sick...with a baby! It better not be Lyme....it can't be with the cramp and zings

Sounds very promising!!

Afm - I'm so crampy. It's annoying and since it's way too early for af it's freaking me out.

I love it, too. That's why I haven't had it cut yet. You should see the back. The hair that originates from his crown is so long that I could put it in a ponytail on the top of his head. He always has crazy bedhead back there. The rest of his hair is short and it's so fine.

 

kinder ~ I had sharp, stabbing pains the day before I got my first BFP. I'm having these weird contraction like cramps. I know, it's ridiculous to have contractions now. They say, though, that the uterus is always contracting but most of the time we just can't feel it. I started feeling contractions when I was pg with ds3 at around 11w. It's scaring me, though, because I had these same contraction like feelings for a few days before I started spotting last time. I can't bring myself to join a DDC yet. I'm afraid I'll jinx myself.

Hey, everyone. I have reached a milestone. I'm 23dpo, 5w2d, today. Other than my 11w miscarriage, I had either started spotting or bleeding before now even when I was on progesterone. The latest was 22dpo. I know I'm not completely out of the woods but that gives me a little bit of peace. OTOH, it also heightens my fear, if it makes any sense that I could feel both at the same time.

 

I woke this morning with a sense that it was over. The baby was dead. I hope it's just fear and not intuition. I took my temp this morning hoping that would make me feel better but it was very low, 97.7. Of course, that was after lying awake in bed for at least an hour, breathing with my mouth open sometimes because my nose is stuffed up and having to hunt in the drawer for my thermometer because I hadn't planned on temping, I know my temp doesn't count because of all those factors but it shocked me that it was that low. So, I took my last DT hpt and the line is a lot darker than the control. I know that doesn't really mean anything, either, at this point because my hCG would be high enough that I would still get very + hpts even if I were miscarrying.

 

I have another week before my heartbeat u/s. I hope I can make it without losing my mind. I wish I had some symptoms to reassure me. We're going to be stuck in the house for at least half the week because ds2 has a cold. DS3 will probably get it soon. That's going to make me go stir crazy.

 

Sorry for being a downer. I don't really have anyone else to "talk" to about this stuff.

post #350 of 429

Oh gosh, MW, I couldn't even imagine.  Hugs.

 

You're right though.  The temp doesn't mean squat, and the test is telling you that right now, you are still pregnant.  Take deep breaths and try to just be in that right now.  I know it's terrifying.  Vent away.  We are all here for you!!  Just know that whatever happens, you are doing all you can and giving this little bean the best chances possible.  

 

I temped the past two days and will probably temp this week so that I get warning for AF.  Ugh, I really hope she stays away.  My bbs are so sore I can barely put a bra on, and last night I had some pretty annoying cramping ( i think i mentioned).

 

 

I guess part of me feels convinced Im pg b/c Nora weaned. But this other part of me keeps saying, "Don't get your hopes up!!" 

I want to be pg on Christmas. All summer, ALL FRICKING SUMMER, all I was saying is it doesn't matter, I'll be pg by Christmas. WELL IT'S CHRISTMAS, PPL!! It's Christmas in just a few days, and HERE I AM STILL NOT PREGNANT! 

ARGH! I'm pissed off, I'm annoyed. I'm frustrated. I'm lonely. Nora is awesome but I want more -- I want her to have a little brother or sister to keep her company, I want her to be the big sister, I want, I want, I want. I just want. All of it.

Carrie ~ It will happen! Nora will have that little brother or sister.

 

I swear my breasts are no longer swollen or tender. I feel nothing. I don't know. I'm trying to stay positive but I just have a bad feeling. I started posting on the PAL board. That board is depressing because it seems there are so many subsequent losses. It's hard for me to get involved because I'm afraid I'll be next.

post #352 of 429

I hear you. ((hugs))

 

Normally I lurk in the DDCS.  This time I couldn't even make myself click on August.

post #353 of 429

MW- Big hugs to you. Hang in there. Don't go to those depressing boards. I agree with Carrie--be in the moment! Think positively. Pregnancy symptoms come and go early on! 

 

Carrie- it's going to happen! Don't worry! 

 

AFM- I went back and deleted the last 3 days that I checked cramping because now that I'm really cramping, I realize that I wasn't exactly cramping before this. These cramps really hurt and it feels like AF will start any second. My stomach has that empty hollow sensation that I usually get before AF too. This has got to mean something. I too don't want to get my hopes up. The first month I charted, I recorded everything. This month I'm only recording things that are not "all in my head" and there is a lot going on. If this isn't my month, then future post-O-confirmation charting is worthless! 

post #354 of 429

MW, I'm trying to avoid the PAL forum as well because I don't want to be in that mindset. Although last week when I had the bleeding, I was convinced that the baby had died. Especially after the ultrasound in the ER when the dates were off from my dates. My DH was being so darn optimistic and we actually got in to an argument because he said I needed to get out of my head so much. His point was that "I know too much" and it was making me second guess everything. I was mad at him at the time but he's right. I was still convinced that it was over and fully expected to get bad news at the follow-up ultrasound. But there was that little heart beating away!

 

As far as symptoms, I've just really started to get them in full force around the 6 week mark. I'm 6w5d today and the nausea is here in full force. My bbs are not as sore as I expected them to be but the nausea is so different from last time that I'm not surprised. Just watch a couple of episodes of "I Didn't Know I was Pregnant" to hear about women that went 9 months w/out any symptoms!

I try to stay away but then I feel like I need some support and I don't have anywhere else to go. That's the only place I feel like I fit in right now. I don't get much support there, though, because it's just not very active. I'm too scared to join a DDC or even the general pg board. I don't want to have to tell everyone I've m/ced again. I'm trying to keep positive but I know that's a possibility so it's always in the back of my mind.

 

Annie ~ I know you are right. I've read many posts about how m/s didn't start until 6+w. And, yeah, I guess very early pg symptoms come and go. I'm overanalyzing and obsessing about everything as usual. I don't even know if I'd recognize m/s at this point because I got so used to feeling nauseous from the metformin. As a matter of fact, once I got pg I stopped feeling nauseous from the meds. I was pg with ds1 for 2-3 months before I knew it. Even after that I didn't feel pg until I was 7 or 8 months along.

 

I can't bring myself to watch any of those baby shows on TV. I get jealous and then I get very depressed.

 

I have read the PAL thread on the July DDC a few times. That thread is depressing. There have already been several losses. I just can't handle that right now. It makes me feel like I'm going to be next.

Just more food for thought - I didn't have nausea with my pregnancy until well into the 6th week either.  Hang in there MW.  ((hugs))

Same here! My MS literally started in the 6th week (I remember the dates specifically). Before that I only had cramping off and on and some brown spotting early on. (with one I spotted for 10 weeks). Otherwise, I didn't feel pregnant until 6 weeks and then, I wished I didn't have said symptoms because I was so miserable all the time!

I wish I could remember when my m/s started with ds2 and 3. I think my symptoms must have started around 6w or so last May because I distinctly remember having symptoms for a couple of weeks and then they disappeared. That was at around 8w. I do have to go to the bathroom a lot more often so maybe that's something. I swear my breasts feel deflated, though. They don't feel heavy like they did yesterday and they definitely aren't tender like they were.

 

I didn't tell you about my dream last night. I dreamt I had a baby girl but she had the wrong name. My dh was in charge of naming her and he didn't tell anyone so the hospital staff just gave her a random name, Amy. For some reason, I wasn't at the hospital when all of that happened. I was outside waiting. My dh came out with the baby and told me her name and I freaked. I grabbed the baby and ran back into the hospital screaming that they had better change her name this instance! Then I woke up to pee. LOL

post #359 of 429

Oh man, that dream! How strange!  Pg dreams are the weirdest!!

 

Random facts/symptoms that are all in my head but "whatever" -- BBs are so sore and swollen.  Hurts to wear a bra, hurts to move.  Ugh.  Randomly smelled puke in Target where there was none, and randomly smelled a gross fish smell at the food store up by the front doors (where there was def no fish, I looked around).  It was just weird.

 

My bbs hurt so bad, it's redic.  I can't even.

post #360 of 429

Baby_Cakes: Sounds promising! When are you going to start testing?

 

MW: Maybe you have other symptoms you just aren't noticing because you are focusing on your bbs? One of my random pg symptoms started over the weekend. My arms go numb and tingly while asleep, like all the blood is gone from them. This started in my last pg and stopped a day or so after my d&e. It's like my blood can't be bothered to go other places than my uterus or something. Do you have something funky like that?

 

AFM: I think I'm slightly further along than I thought! I thought I was 6w5d because I was going off of FF's O date. When I had my second scan, the tech put my EDD as 7/18 rather than 7/20. I just went back and looked at my FF chart and it's highly possible that I did O two days earlier so that would mean that I'm 7w0d today...which isn't that big of a difference but makes me insanely happy!
