Greenmama - big hugs to you at this time.

 

sraplayas - Hope you and DS are well very soon and that PPAF shows her face.

 

averlee - fingers crossed fro you!  That urge to test just to see is so strong sometimes isn't it?!

Congrats, summerbaby!

 

Just checking in. I'm 9 dpo and going back and forth between definitely thinking I'm pregnant and definitely thinking I'm not. I should know in a few days... winky.gif

 

Edited to add--could I please be moved to the 2ww? Thank you!

Well, move me to waiting to O!! I woke this morning to my first PPAF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! So excited!! DD is 10 days shy of being 19 months.

 

I had been feeling 'period-y' for a few days, but have experienced that at least 3 other times in the last 6 months with nothing resulting so I didn't think about it or get my hopes up. I had really been intuiting that the next baby would be conceived between April and June and it is really cool to see that my body is in sync with that soul vibe. So blissfully happy for the next phase. 

 

The best part is that I changed absolutely nothing about our bfing relationship and I put no energy into it (no herbs, massage) other than cleaning up my diet and allowing my body to do what it needed to do without forcing anything!! 

 

YAY!!

mamaharrison---Yipee!!!

Ok, so the good news is that today is day 12 of my LP!!  So that is great, hopefully it will stay long from here on out. 

 

The bad news is that I did an HPT today and it was a BFN.  greensad.gif  Not even a hint of a line.  Last preg, I got a BFP that was pretty clear at 13 dpo, so it's not looking good for this cycle.  We'll see.  I might test again tomorrow.

Just checking in...still waiting to O. I have a wacky chart this month so?? Seems like the left side doesn't like to ovulate easily. :( I had a lot of pain on the left this month and 2 months ago. Spotting this month with what I thought was O but that was 4 days ago and still no temp. shift up. Blah.

 

Good luck to all the testers and waiters!

post #70 of 150

Yay, mamaharrison!!

 

I am befuddled. I think I have an 11-12 day LP, typically. Today is 12 dpo. I have felt completely not pregnant for the last few days, and I woke up to some pink-tinged CM. I figured that meant AF was on the way, except that my temp actually went *up*--to the highest it's been this whole cycle, in fact. A couple hours ago, the CF was light tan, and now it's its normal color. I'm getting BFNs, too. What the heck? My optimistic side would like to think it's implantation bleeding, but it seems awfully late for that, and even if it is, that means a late implantation, which hasn't boded well for me in the past. Maybe I'm getting the flu my DD has and my temp went up before I've started feeling sick? I don't know.  I suppose I'll know for sure in a day or two.

Well ladies, I can't believe I'm saying this, but I *think* I got a BFP!  I did a $ store test this am and got a faint line!  So faint I haven't told DH yet.  I want to go buy another one and repeat tomorrow, just in case.  Plus, my plan for how to tell him was to put a "I;m the big brother" t-shirt on DS, and I haven't found the iron-on decal at the store yet.  So, not sure what I'll do to break the news.  But tomorrow seems like a good day to do it, if indeed it is a BFP!

yesssss! congrats man! biggrinbounce.gif can't wait to hear for sure tomorrow. my dh doesn't even let me test when he's not home, much less test and not tell him! the excitement must be killing you! :)
 

post #73 of 150

Thanks, Peacelove!  I don't give DH an option about when I test and whether he's there!  lol.  That's the 3rd test I did this cycle and he doesnt' know about any of them! winky.gif He doesn't really want to think about me POAS!  hahaha  So he's happy to just hear the result.  We'll see what happens tomorrow!  I got a $ store one and a target FRER type as a backup in case I'm not sure with the other.  And I got a fabric marker and wrote "I'm the big brother" on one of DS's onesies, so that is all ready to go if I get the BFP tomorrow!  He is SO not expecting a BFP yet.

post #74 of 150

Yay marciacm!!!  I am so excited to hear the news tomorrow!!

 

AND congrats mamaharrison!!  I bet that feels great!!

 

AFM--There has been no night nursing going on in this house for about a week!!  hoorrray!!  And he's been sleeping through the night!  So I feel hopeful still!  Today I noticed a very sensitive sense of smell??!!  Peanut butter was SOO strong and coffee has been an intense smell lately.  And I couldn't finish my cheeseburger because it just grossed me out! weird.....  I can't get excited though, I haven't even had my first ppaf!  But there has been lots of DTD, so who knows!?

lol.gif  ha ha, that's the way to do it! whistling.gif what he doesn't know can't hurt him--or get his hopes up! :) i thought with this baby dh wouldn't really need to be there for the tests, because you know it's not our first, it's still special but now we've been pregnant before.... but this time around he says, 'if you're testing just to test, i don't have to; if you're testing because you have a feeling, i want to.' :P and marker is just as good as iron-on!

post #76 of 150

Hi everyone - first of all, I wanted to say thank you for all the kind words I received back in the Jan. thread. They meant a lot to me. I've been busy having tests done and I do have a diagnosis, prolactinoma. It was masked by bf, but my RE emphasized that it was NOT caused or exacerbated by bf. I have to say I'm not surprised because I know my body well and I knew something was off. So, I am now on medication that should correct the excess prolactin and allow my system to balance itself. I suppose that makes me waiting to catch the first egg or waiting to o, but not really related to breastfeeding. I think it's time for me to move to just the general ttc thread. But, not before another heartfelt thank you for all the support I've received here during the end of the nursing and weaning period. Warm wishes for happy and healthy pregnancies to all.

So, I'm on CD 22 and while I'm obviously too early to test just yet, I was at the drugstore yesterday and I did stop in the isle with the tests, and I couldn't believe how expensive they are.  I'm in Canada and they are $16 a pop!!!  I'm really praying that I won't need more than one, so I don't want to order a whole bunch of internet cheapies, but I also don't want to spend a fortune on that one.  Anyone in Canada know what dollar stores carry them?  I've tried two different ones to no avail.  I am not going to test until CD 33, or at least that's what I keep telling myself. 

post #78 of 150

Mamaharrison - yay for PPAF!  

Mariacm - congratulations!  I love how you plan to tell your DH!  That is SO cute.

 

AFM - I think I'm 6dpo!  Can I please be moved to the 2ww?

i wasn't here last month, so i'm not one of the ones you're thanking. however, i'm really happy for you that you've at least pinned down what's going on; that must bring a lot of relief. and being medicated and knowing you're taking steps forward must feel good too. and bonus points for knowing something was up :) hopefully your body is back to its glowing, functioning, healthy self soon and you can get goin! :) good luck and positive vibes hug.gif

I got a BFP today!!!!  joy.gif I cannot believe it!  This was our first cycle ttc!  I was sure it would take a long time with the short LP's and my hormone issues.  We are just so thankful though that we are able to grow our little family already!!  I did another $store one, got quite the faint line, and then used the target one and got the blue + sign.  Still can't believe it!  I want to keep testing to make sure it's not a fluke and the baby keeps growing!  It was surrealistic calling the MW for the prenatal appt.  I'm still worried about m/c so we probably won't tell IRL for a couple more weeks at least.

 

So here's how I told DH:  DH and I traded V-day gifts at breakfast, and I didn't say anything.  DS was napping and we always change out of pj's after his nap, so the plan was to get him into the "I'm the big brother" onesie after the nap w/o DH seeing it until I had the camcorder ready.  He was in the shower, so I got DS ready and waited downstairs with the camcorder.  Dh comes down and says "DS is wearing a muscle shirt" and I say yeah, check it out, and he sees it, and says oh that's cute, but not yet.  And I say from behindt he camcorder, yes yet!  He was so dumbfounded, completely confused and shocked!  It took him a few minutes to realize, with me saying I'm preg, etc etc.  Hilarious!!!  And so much fun!!

 

Baby dust for all of you!  I'll be praying for more BFP's!!!
