No AF yesterday, so I tested this morning and pos.gif It's faint, but it is definitely there smile.gif (click for a larger picture)



joy.gifbiggrinbounce.gifyikes.gifbouncy.gifbanana.gif - That about covers my feelings!

My DH was excited, but then told me "But don't have twins!" rolleyes.gif: And I'm sure his financial worrying will start again like last time. I definitely sit down and plan out a budget, but I don't just start worrying like crazy like my DH does, so I hear all of you ladies there!

Congrsts Quinalla! What kind of test did you use, I've never seen one that looks like that. But definitely two lines, how exciting!

Thanks smile.gif It's from saveontests.com, I'm too cheap to buy tests in the store, so I just order them online for super cheap. I think they actually come from Canada, but you can pay with dollars. I used them for this time and when TTC for my DD, though I sprung for the pee-on-a-stick test this time, last time I just got the dip-strips like they have at the doctor's office as they are even cheaper.

Congrats Quinalla!  How exciting for you :)  Thanks for that tip for saveontests.com. I'm frugal too and pregnancy tests are expensive!  I hate shelling out the $$$.

13 DPO, I'm so excited!

Yeah, I might buy them at the dollar store, but we don't have any that are really convenient. I just can't see buying 1 or 2 tests in the store when I can get 10-15 tests online for the same price or cheaper including shipping. Store tests are great in a pinch, but when planning to TTC, it's pretty easy to order online when you start and tests will be there when you need them.

kitteh, thanks. I had another good day. I am hitting my stride.

 

Quinalla and aHikaru, wow wow wow! Two in one day. That is serious mojo. A BIG congrats to you both.

 

Quinalla, let me know when you want to be moved to graduates!

 

AFM, I peed on a Wondfo this morning, and BFN. No surprise, I am only 6 DPO today. I will try again tomorrow. Why not, right?

 

G'night ladies!

I also caught the testing bug after reading about the recent BFPs. I'm somewhere between 7 and 9 dpo and probably shouldn't even be thinking of POAS for another few days, but I went for it anyway and got the dreaded EVAP LINE, ugh. As if I need any more reason to overly obsess and delude myself, lol.

 

I'm sure I'll be testing every morning from now til the 20th. Thank god for internet cheapies!

Ooh, I consider evap lines hopeful! I've never had one.

Thanks everyone, please move me to Graduates. Good luck to all of you ladies, I hope we get many more graduates this month smile.gif Sorry about passing the testing bug on to everyone, though it isn't too bad if you are using the cheap internet tests!

Boo, sorry! 

 

Quinalla, I moved you. Congrats again!

 

Kitteh, did you test this morning?

 

The bad news is that I had another negative Wondfo on 7DPO. The great news is that I have lost 5 lbs since Monday! I LOVE the start of a diet, that crud weight that comes off right away is so encouraging. Now I just need to keep up the momentum.

post #56 of 62

Thanks for the responses everyone.  Feeling less freaked but still a little miffed about all the things I have to give up like control, buying new normal clothes, being able to see my toes, my ability to not feel crappy, sleep, etc.  But hey, I finally get to put stuff in that empty bedroom opposite ours.

 

Regarding the finances thing though I think we figured it out and found a daycare nearby that is really reasonable and will still allow us to save a fair amount of money each month and not adjust our lifestyle much, if at all (aside from the obvious adjustments).  We recently paid off our student loans so we've freed up that money too which should cover most of the baby expenses for a while so that helps too.  I have determined that we probably could never afford to have more than one.  Seriously, how do people do that?  We live pretty modestly, we don't deprive ourselves, but we're awesome savers and got ourselves set up in a nice, inexpensive house that we can stay in for as long as we wish and do quite well but I don't think we could pay for two in daycare unless daycare was them hiding under my desk all day.

 

I guess I can be moved to graduates.  I made the mistake of saying I didn't really feel pregnant yesterday and that I was still somewhat unconvinced that I actually am (it was a dollar store test after all - and wouldn't you know it we bought 3 and 3 ovulation tests too, plus a big thing of cups...).  My body is making sure I'm aware this morning; nausea, headache, and my back feels like it's trying to kill me.  And I have to work extra this evening (heh...doing childcare, ironically).

 

Oddly enough I think doing private childcare (aka being the babysitter) for the last 12 years has actually been part of what freaks me out about being a mom.  I know how relieved I was to go home most days, especially when I was doing it nearly full time and I saw it all so I don't have that rosy outlook thing going on.  But work is just that, work.  Even if you love what you do there are going to be 'those days' and I'm sure it's no different than parenting.  I'll love my kid but I probably won't like her all the time.  And sometimes I'll need a break.  And that's ok.

Congrats aHikaru! So glad you got your bfp!

Yup, and I got a BFN. And then I tried again in the afternoon, and also this evening because apparently I'm addicted to POAS and I guess one bfn just wasn't enough of a disappointment for one day.

I'm trying not to get too discouraged. At best I'm 10dpo, but also possible that I'm only 8dpo. So we'll see. I'm expecting AF between the 18th and the 20th, so there's still time (to obsess and drive myself and DH crazy)
post #59 of 62

Got another BFN this morning, but then I did a cervical check a few hours later and had some brown and red spotting. Only at the cervix, nothing has shown on my underwear or toilet paper (sorry, tmi) So I don't know if this is a little late to be implantation spotting, or just REALLY early AF showing up. I guess I'll just keep an eye on it and hope that it doesn't turn into anything more. I should probably not test til Sunday or Monday, but knowing myself I doubt I can hold off, lol.

post #60 of 62

Spotting has turned bright red, but it still is just spotting and not normal period flow. I've had cramps and a dull lower-back ache pretty much since the middle of my cycle, so I have no idea what is up with that. I took a (few) test(s) this morning and I swear I see a super faint line, but it is also entirely possible that I'm imagining things. I guess I have no choice but to wait and see.
