krunchyk--Thank you! And carrot soup sounds delicious. I don't know about the raw vs. cooked question, but I'd love to see the recipe.
AndTheStars--That is awesome! From my standpoint, I especially love the part about the spotting and not BD on O day... Definitely going to incorporate carrots and pineapple core should the need arise in the near future. If nothing else, I need to eat more fruits and vegetables.
gratefulstella--Hope tonight was a most successful BD night!
myllissa--I stalk charts but never really know what I am looking at unless it's really obvious, so I will not offer a wildly uninformed opinion :), however, I did want to say that I can identify with 7 days in a row of BD being exhausting. I don't know how the frequent BD folks out there do it. I guess you're in better shape than I am. :)
KnittenKitten--Yes, I can feel the sticky vibes and thank you so much. Sounds like your BD marathon is going great! That is excellent.
Carlin--Your chart looks fantastic!
AFM, I got a slightly more definitive outcome when I tested in the middle of the day on Sunday. Still not super great, but better. It's probably because my urine was more concentrated... it looked almost fluorescent yellow on the test. I got a line of a similar darkness on the FRER this morning (12 DPO), but again my urine was quite a bit more dilute-looking.
Today I was feeling good all day, thinking maybe this would work out. No spotting all day. But just now I went to the bathroom and there was some more spotting on the TP. I would really call it light red this time. I really need to call my doctor and ask what the strategy is for hormone supplementation. I had actually forgotten about this, because I quit using it after finding a lump in my breast a month or two ago (mammogram and ultrasound came back negative so it seems to be OK), but my doctor at one point put me on a prescription estrogen/progesterone cream because my blood levels of both came back low. I was wondering about progesterone supplementation and what was safe, etc. with this pregnancy. Seems stupid but it never occurred to me to actually call her. I'm sort of between providers and have only visited her once, so I think I just wasn't thinking of her as "my doctor." I'm going to send her an email right after this so I don't forget. I used a dose of the cream just now and I am really hoping I didn't do the wrong thing.
Sorry for the length. DH is still out of town so this is kind of nervewracking.
