Thanks, gozal. It is nice to get feedback. I told my husband about the strange feelings I was experiencing and he was hopeful, but very pragmatic. However, I had a little sneeze this morning and he joked, "what does it mean?" It's good to have a laugh about this crazy time. 

 

And what is a wondfo cheapie? I assume it is a cheap pregnancy/ovulation test, but I wonder what the "wondfo" stands for.

 

Fertile thoughts to all!

writinglove, wondfo isn't an acronym, for a change - it's actually the name of the test manufacturer. They are just little test strips (no fancy plastic handle), you only dip them for 3 seconds and then the result window is 5 minutes only. I am totally with you, without humor I would be in big trouble!

callieollie: peeked at your chart. I vote for testing tomorrow if your temp is the same or up.

 

gozal: Thank you! I'm feeling a lot better, just trying to move forward. I hope all is well with you.

Is there a reason you're not dating?

Callieollie: I vote for testing tomorrow too, but my addictive personality did not survive to my 12 DPO test date, so I am a terrible example of resistance! Chart looks good though!

 

Stevi: Dating sounds good, hugs that AF found you, maybe we will have DDC twins next cycle!

 

Shelley: banghead.gif at AF. I've heard good things about maca & soy. My previous acupuncturist recommended a teaspoon every morning of Royal Jelly in honey (available in the vitamin section of whole foods) to help increase the health of the egg.

That is exactly how I've been feeling, that a BFP would explain a lot, but that nothing is so far off from what people have as PMS symptoms that it could just be AF coming full force.
 


 


AFM: I POAS...after holding it for like 90 minutes, maybe 2 hours. It was negative. My boobs are still really sore, I keep second guessing that they are worse than usual, but they definitely are, and it is like the whole boob. Now all afternoon I have really bad back cramps, similar to what I get right before AF - except I'm only 10DPO and my temp is still 99.1 this afternoon (98.7 BBT). Now I feel nauseaus & tired. Maybe it is just PMS, could be from the chinese medicine affecting my LP, I never really had PMS before other than sore boobs, but this could just be my new normal. My chart is nearly identical to last cycle, really high yesterday and then back down today. I just feel sad. I can't believe I broke my promise to myself not to POAS until Sunday. My DH is being very supportive, surprisingly he really thought it worked this cycle, we were both hopeful. It is amazing how 2 days ago I couldn't imagine having to go through another week of AF and then waiting to O and another 2ww, now it just feels like, okay, on with the show, a February baby would be nice too. We just waited so long for April (our original TTC start date), so I had some faith that it hadn't happened b/c April was meant to be... Pity party here, sorry. gloomy.gif I'm still crossing everything for everyone else in the 2ww.

Gozal: Thanks for your kind words. It helps to know that you all have the same feelings and I'm not just crazy. I don't WHY they had such a rule about it, but it pissed me off. So, in a way, I'm glad we decided not to go that route right now. There are three other REs in the city, so when we are ready, I'm going to ask for another referral to someone else! I'm going to give it three months on our own again, and then I'm seeing someone, and that's it.

 

MommyMat:  Good luck!!

 

Stevi: hug2.gif

 

cbaa: Thanks for the heads up about RJ in Honey at Whole Foods. I have been trying to figure out where to find it!! I have one a few blocks away.

 

 

AFM: I'm SO much better today. I think the funk is gone. I think I just overwhelmed myself with all of this at the start. I'm still irritated that nothing worked out this cycle, but I've decided not to change anything this next cycle - if AF will EVER show her face. Ugh, tired of waiting now that I know I'm not PG. I'm going to give it another month just temping, charting, CBFM ,etc. and just wait and see what my body does on its own. Then, I'll move on to supplements, and other options. Thanks for everything girls!!

Well, I tested - BFN.  My temp went up again but I also woke up with a sore throat and all congested so I'm sick and my temp is probably higher because of that as well. So I'll wait and then test on Monday. 

post #71 of 78

cbaa - 10 DPO is still very early... many people get BFNs at 10DPO and go on to get BFPs later. If you are going to test before 14 DPO I would recommend testing with FMU, otherwise you are probably wasting your tests. Don't give up hope yet!

 

AFM - today is CD1 for me, please move me to waiting to O. I am now officially in my first Clomid cycle, I will start taking on on Wednesday (CD5). I can hardly contain my excitement!!!!

Excellent!  I hope you don't have to take it for very long.  :)

 

AFM, still waiting to O...I think.  I can always tell when I O, and I haven't had any of the signs yet.  I was supposed to O on the 4th.  Still BD'ing as much as possible until AF shows up.

FF gave me a solid line on CD22, guess all those OPKs I peed on (atleast 20 I'd say) were worth it, last cycle I only ever got crosshairs! So now I'm 3DPO, let the wait begin...

post #74 of 78

Please move me to Waiting to Know. I am 3DPO today *high fives MommyM and tantylynn*

 

Sourire: I hope the Clomid is just what you guys needed!

 

Stevi: Were you taking a hiatus from dating? *hugs*

post #75 of 78

BubbleMa...   Dating sort of intereferes with TTC. And it's difficult to find time around school and TTC. And I always open my big mouth and tell them about TTC. LOL Then if I get serious, I feel guilty about TTC with donors (it feels like cheating).

 

cbaa2010...   At 10dpo you need fmu you to give you a more accurate hpt. Try again in the morning.

 

Gemmine...  Sort of, yes.

post #76 of 78

Just popping in to say good luck to everyone in the 2WW!

 

I feel it's appropriate to move me to WTF is Going On. Thinking about it, my last AF was much shorter, lighter (more like spotting), and less painful than usual, leading me to believe something is up. Plus my cervix is awfully high still and I have been having lots of creamy CM, and I'm only on CD 10, if it was really AF. That's awfully early for me, I usually O around CD 20-22 on a 35 day cycle.

Needless to say, I am pretty confused. nut.gif Is this worth "wasting" a test over?

 

Anyone who has had a ruptured cyst, did you have spotting after, or even a little before?

 

EDIT: Just tested, I think it's a BFN. greensad.gif There's a very faint line in some lights, but I think it's just where the line would be if it was there. I'm way past the point of getting super faint lines haha.

WildDoula...   I had spotting after my burst ovarian cyst, but mine also occured right before my second miscarriage, so I would have bled because of that anyway.
