Yay! Lactatinggirl. Congratulations.
Would you remind those of us still waiting how many dpo you were when you got a positive?
Sorry about the BFN, Silvermoon.
I am not actually charting yet, so have no idea when I ovulated, or what my cm was like, or what my temps are!! If something doesn't happen this cycle, then I'll step it up a bit and start tracking all of that.
BUT, according to my period tracker app I am due to start my period tomorrow...so I'm gonna take a test if AF hasn't shown up by then. I'm not spotting at all yet (which I usually do), have sensitive boobs, had a smallish bout of nausea a few days ago, and have had a couple quick cramp-like feelings that didn't last long at all. I'm trying to convince myself that all that can be contributed to other reasons...but I'm still gonna test tomorrow (cause how cool would a BFP on Mother's Day be?). If I don't get a positive tomorrow, I can still always test again a few days later if AF hasn't shown up.
I tested this morning, BFN. Still no period, it was due on Tue. It isn't usually late like this. It came exactly 28 days after my m/c, so I am counting on 28 days this cycle too. I have one last test to take this time and I am waiting until Wed, a week and a day after my period was expected. We all just have to hang in there and let our bodies do the work, and give our minds something else to obsess on!
11 DPO when it was so faint I thought I was imagining it. 12 DPO when it was an obvious, but light line.
I caved and tested this morning only to get a BFN. It's only 9dpo (rough estimate) though so I knew it was unlikely. I woke from a dream that was so vivid -- all the way down to the kind of cup I peed in-- in the dream I got two strong lines and felt so elated & relieved. Lactatinggirl, your experience still gives me hope! I have company showing up here in two days and was hoping to have good news when they arrived (also honestly to know if I could enjoy wine with dinner!) so I *may* test again Tues am. At this point I'm feeling like I'd rather give myself the time to see if AF shows up than go through this emotional havoc again.
I just joined. We are on our first cycle of trying for #2.
I saw Asprague's comment and wanted to offer a little hope--- I didn't get a BFP on #1 until 6 days after my missed period. And even that day it was super faint. It was 21dpo when I got a real noticeable positive.
I'm now 11dpo and got a negative yesterday. I *think* (and hope) that I am pregnant but realize after 3 negative tests so far that I may not know anything for another week or so! Yikes...
The wait is finally over! 21DPO and finally I got my period. Ugh. Not a big deal, just means that maybe we will have a Feb baby, which was our original plan anyway. You shuld see how not unhappy DH is, "trying" is obviously his favorite part, I like it too, but he REALLY likes it. Probably because it guarantees sex for at least a week straight. Oh well, see you guys in 14 days! Hopefully some of you will have moved on to the DDC boards though :)
Hello, ladies. I am new to this thread and just needed to commiserate with others in the dreaded 2WW. I really want to test, but it's kind of like something someone said earlier, getting a BFN is just so depressing, I would rather wait until I can handle it, I guess? My period is due in about 5 days... but if I learned anything from the last cycle, I am going to wait until a day after I expect my period to test. The waiting is killing me. With my last pregnancies, it seemed like the symptoms were just too clear to ignore. Ever since we have started TTC this baby, everything seems so ambiguous... or maybe I am just so zeroed in on any and all symptoms, who knows. I hate being right in the middle of the TWW. You just feel helpless. My husband doesn't care if I test or not, but I dunno if I could take it. Arrrghgh! A little tip for everyone, though, I haven't had a chance to use it, but I did see on the First Response website that they had a link for a $2 off coupon good for any of their products.
