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: 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. I'm still crossing everything for everyone else in the 2ww.
