Welcome to another week! TwighlightJoy has graciously offered to take over the thread, but is also willing to let someone else take the reigns if you are interested. Let me know if you're interested, otherwise I will turn it over to her next week!

 

Good luck to those testing this week!  goodvibes.gif

Thanks for the new thread!

So, in my world... I'm 10 DPO. I POAS this morning. Wondfo test was BFP!!! love.gif FRER was BFN. greensad.gif

So, what do you think that means?

I waited a few hours and took another Wondfo- another BFP, but very faint. FRER was still neg after an hour. What do you think it means? I've googled false positives with Wondfos and it seems to be pretty common.

Click to see the pics bigger.

Top is yesterday's BFN. Second is today's FMU. Third is today's SMU. Fourth is an OPK, just for comparison.



And here's the BFN FRER.

post #4 of 64

TwilightJoy I wouldn't worry. I have no experience with Wondfos, but on FRERs I didn't get BFP until 13DPO with my DD.

Last time around, Frer gave me a bfp 3 days after dollar tree bfp. MIt was so frustrating! Be patient and I'm sure they'll all say bfp. YAAAY!
post #6 of 64
Congrats TwilightJoy! I'm sure you will get the bfp from the FR test soon. Very exciting!

Hi Ladies

 

Please add me to the Waiting to Know list. I'm expecting AF on wednesday, but i've been off a day or two for the last few months.... so here's hoping! 

post #8 of 64

Hi there,

PLEASE MOVE ME TO WAITING TO O.

 

Thanks!!

post #9 of 64

Hi - Please move me to Waiting to O. Sad but still hopeful about conceiving soon. This means I have another cycle to stress out about losing a little weight. I am 20 pounds over my heaviest comfortable weight. I have given up sugar as of today (I don't care about it, just a bad habit I got into and such an easy way to put on weight) and I am going to do a Fat Flush detox for the next week and maybe for a little while longer, just without the juice fasting because I want to cleanse gently. Last time I did it I lost 10 pounds of crud that was lurking in my intestines.

 

I went to a hotsprings today and got a massage. Then I had sushi with real RAW fish. That is how I soothe myself when I get AF. Expensive habit.

 

I think it is time to start temping again, so I can really assess my LP. Time to dig out the digi. Sigh.

 

Love to all you ladies! Happy baby making and peaceful waiting!

Looks promising TwighlightJoy! Fx'd for you.

 

So... now with TwighlightJoy's pending BFP, it looks like we need another volunteer for threadkeeper. Now that I'm officially in the second semester of my pregnancy, I would really like to pass on this duty to someone who is going to be more active on this board. It's an easy job - possibly 5-10 minutes of upkeep each week. If you're tech-savvy enough to post on this forum (with smiley faces & links), then you have more than enough knowledge to take over as thread keeper. I'd really like to make the transition by the end of the week, so please let me know.

I will volunteer. Maybe I will get the threadkeeper's luck, too. Heck, it seems like it worked for Twilight instantly! joy.gif

Hello ladies, back from my little break. Just was very disappointed to not get a BFP like I thought I would last cycle. I'm feeling better, but cautious of getting my hopes up too high again. Maybe lots of BDing is in order, will be good fun if nothing else wink1.gif Thanks again for all the support and welcome to those I missed seeing last week!

TwilightJoy, thanks for volunteering to take over the threads. I would think it means your one test brand is much more sensitive, hopefully over the next few days the other brand shows positive too. Those are very clear positives though so congratulations!

analily, I had some sushi last night myself and I plan to have a beer or two in the next day or so, it's good to focus on the little positives of not being pregnant.

You can add me to the WTH is going on category.

 

I know I just went off BC so it's going to be weird but I'm at cycle day 32 and have no idea what's going on and my body is trolling me with mixed signals; fertile cm but decreased temp and possibly not ideal cervical placement and tenderness (then again I literally have nothing to compare it to so I just marked it medium on all levels).  No signs of AF like my PMS migraine week or strategically placed boob lump.  Maybe I O'd, maybe I didn't.  Maybe I should take a test, maybe that'd just waste money.  No idea.

 

I guess DH and I will just have to DTD as much as possible and hope something sticks.  Oh darn.

 

But seriously, it would be nice to have some idea what was going on.

Sorry to hear about the BFN. Enjoy that beer!

 

I am thinking about starting EPO. I took it one cycle last time and it seemed to work immediately. Then I took a little too much and it upset my stomach so I stopped. For those who take it, what dose did you start with and what do you take now? Any side effects?

 

I guess I am on the TTC bandwagon fully now because I am firing up y thermometer and ordering Wondfos online today. I just love to know what is going  on. whistling.gif

I tested this morning again! pos.gif

Wondfo's line was even lighter than yesterday's, but I splurged and peed on a digtal- and it said PREGNANT!!!

Click to see it bigger.




I'm alternating between excited and terrified!

I totally feel you on this, and I'm not even pregnant yet! But I waver between "OMG I hope we get a BFP soon!" and "OMG what if this is all a huge mistake?!"

 

Congrats again!!

 

I guess I'm Waiting to O. IUD has been out for about a month and a half, I'm on CD 7 so I have at least a week before I O, I think. My cycles before Ela were 30 days long, but this last one was only 28. I'm not temping or anything, but planning to track CM.

post #19 of 64
Thank you so much for your kind words and support ladies. I'm just giddy excited. Please be sending positive thoughts/prayers for a sticky baby and then a healthy baby! I'm still having uterus twinges, yesterday they started being more crampy and uncomfortable. It's like my uterus is saying hi to the baby! heartbeat.gif

Thank you! hug.gif I'm going to take another FRER on Wednesday, which is 13DPO and the day AF is supposed to arrive.

Thanks! It's interesting that the Wondfo is so sensitive! Keep that in mind for when you test!

Congrats again!!

I was terrified about infertility before the BFP, now I'm terrified of miscarriage. I wish I could be chill!

AmandaLynn it can take a while to get your cycle back. Thisamight be an anovulatory time. Lots of advice in Taking Charge Of Your Fertility. If I were you, I'd take a cheap dollar store test (very accurate actually ) once a week just to be sure and wait for a positive or a period. Consider the wait time as a chance to practice charting. I'm told if you get down every other or every third day, you have a great shot of getting pregnant, even if you don't chart. Of course, that only works if you ovulate.

Hows everyone in 2 week wait? I'm optimistic. Sore boobs, sick, tired tired tired and my temp is maaaybe triphasal. I feel like crap! Hooray! Fingers crossed! I had bfn Monday but I've never had a positive that early. I was just SURE I might this time!

TWILIGHTJOY I'm so excited for you. You got your bfp pretty early! joy.gif Pleeeease don't stress about mc. Coming from someone who just recently had one, whatever happens, you want to look back at this time as blissfully happy. Regret and fear and worry can really taint our memories and I believe that whatever we experience, we should experience fully, without fear. Also everything will be FINE and you will be holding a healthy baby in May, I am sure. Yay!
