Welcome to a new week!

 

OK, so I am glad Wondfos exist because I have never had the urge to POAS so bad! I have been testing since 6 DPO, silly I know. BFN again today. HOWEVER...

 

My chart is starting to look triphasic to me! I had a dip on 6 DPO and since 7 DPO it has been 3-4 tenths of a degree higher, higher than my usual LP temp. If anyone wants to chart stalk me, they are welcome.

 

I am feeling optimistic, but calm. Calmly optimistic. Trying to stay real. I'm going to a baseball game with my dad and step-sister and some of her friends today. Good distraction!

post #3 of 50

Fingers crossed for you! And yay for a good distraction, hopefully you can forget all about TTC for a while. I know I need to, and it's only been 2 months of trying!

 

I think I might need to start temping. But I co-sleep and still nurse my toddler sometimes at night, could that interfere? Don't you need to temp before you even get out of bed? I think I'm going to check into it.

 

Still spotting red today, but no full-force flow yet. I'm thinking that will start over the next few days because today's test was a BFN. So I guess this cycle was only 24 days long for me. Before DD I had 30 day cycles.
 

I've heard that CD1 starts on the first day of red blood flow, so does red spotting count? It's still a very small amount, but bright red for the 3rd day in a row.

post #4 of 50

Hope you ladies don't mind if I join :) I'll be testing on Friday the 21st at 16/17 dpo! DH and I actually weren't actively trying this month, but I'm praying hard that we get a BFP :) Here are my symptoms: 

 

5/6 dpo (the 10th) - started pink/brown spotting

8/9 dpo (the 13th) - lower back ache started with some watery (almost milky looking) cm and the spotting started to decrease

9/10 dpo (the 14th) - on and off af cramps, but no bleeding. Lower backache still and my bbs started to get very achy and my nipples sensitive. The spotting completely stopped. Took a pg test at noon and it was a bfn :(

10/11 dpo (the 15th) - lots of back aches, achy bbs and arms (near armpits), some watery milky cm and my cervix was very high. I had an overall "sick" feeling like the start of a cold with hot flashes

11/12 dpo (today!) - slightly achy bbs, pulling feeling in my abdomen with very light cramps, sore throat, and STARVING! :)

 

Fingers crossed for all of us!

post #5 of 50

Anyalily - fingers crossed for you! Thank you for keeping this thread going for us. :)

 

kitteh - you need a solid three hours before temping and yes, temp before you get out of bed. I think it helps to temp at roughly the same time every morning, too. I struggle with maintaining a schedule sometimes, so I miss several temps every cycle - but it's most important for me to have a basic idea of what's going on, so I try!

 

MissCee - welcome! Looking good....fingers crossed for your BFP very soon!

 

AFM - just hanging out, waiting to see if I ovulate this cycle or not. I think DH and I going to actively try again - our midwife said we were a go if we wanted to. I'm a little concerned about the emotional ramifications of potentially miscarrying again so soon...but then again, this next baby could be our sticky one! Having faith and moving forward...

post #6 of 50

Good luck to everyone!

Based on recent cycles, I will be ovulating sometime between Thursday and Monday. However, we have a friend coming into town and staying with us Thursday through Sunday. Our house is like a loft, so our bedroom does not have a door, which is totally fine when it is just us. So I don't know if we get to try at all with a house guest here....

 

Congrats to all the BFP from last week! I hope there will be more this week!

How exciting Anyalily and MissCee sending baby dust your way for a bfp!  dust.gif

 

Kitteh- you can still get decent temps with waking up a lot. I'm a horrible sleeper. Wake up lots of times and still see a strong pattern.  Just use the temp that you take after you've been asleep the longest.  That has worked for me anyhow :)  I would count your first day of red blood as CD1 - if you don't start heavier flow. 

 

CD 11 for me today. I usually O around the 15th. I'm finding that the first part of my cycle is starting to be the most anxiety provoking. I'm just so afraid I'll miss O and the opportunity for a baby!

post #8 of 50

Thanks for the info ladies!

 

I'm super confused now, though, because the bleeding was even lighter today and then stopped all together. I even went on a little 4 mile run 2 hours ago and half expected to see blood afterward, but nada. I checked at the cervix too, and it's wet but totally clear.

 

If I go with Fertility Friend, they said I was a 28 day cycle and that I'd be ovulating on the 3rd. I've always been closer to 30 days, though, so I was expecting to O around the 6th. I wasn't temping but I was checking CM daily, and I got a little bit of EWCM on the 3rrd and 4th which dried up pretty quickly by the 6th. So I assumed that I'd O'd on the 3rd or 4th. But maybe it was later than that? If that is the case, then this could *possibly* be implantation bleeding? I've read that some women get spots of bright red, and some even experience a heavier flow that turns out to be IB. Mine was super light in volume but often red. It only lasted for 2 1/2 days though.

 

Trying not to get my hopes back up, but I can't help it. I'm just going to keep on testing this week and hope that the flow doesn't start up again. FX.

post #9 of 50

I'm in the 2ww. FF gave me crosshairs this morning and told me I O'd on Friday.

post #10 of 50

Kitteh- Maybe its not your period orngbiggrin.gif    My cycles usually are around 30 days too. However occasionally I'll have a 27 or 28 day thrown in there just to make things extra fun for me, lol.  Fingers crossed for you.....

Hi guys,

 

I was an August graduate, but I'm afraid I'll be TTC again. Can you move me to waiting to be ready?

Thanks. My temps fell today and I spent the day feeling sad and sorry for myself. But I also kind of feel pregnant. My temp did not fall below the coverline, so I could still be in the running right? Today is 11 DPO and still BFNs on Wondfos.

 

Kitteh, what excitement! I hope that this is implantation bleeding! I know what you mean about needing to temp, that's why I started. There are just too many variables without it. I have found my temperature is pretty close even with disruptions, as long as I don't get out of bed or drink water first. I hope you don't need to start temping an you will get that BFP!

Hi all. I am either having a severe PMS experience or maybe an early pregnancy symptom. I have been SAD and depressed and emotional the last two days. It started with getting a lowish temp yesterday morning. I thought I was out and felt really sad. Later when I put the temp in, I realized I am still above the coverline, but I still felt weepy and sorry for myself. Thank God for DH, who gave me some space and let me lay around all afternoon.

 

Now today, feeling more hopeful again, but still depressed. I don't feel sad like I did yesterday, when I felt like someone had died. Hopeless, you know? No, today I just feel depressed and irritated. I even dragged myself to Zumba, and just felt like I was going through the motions.

 

I don't often feel this way, even in the throes of PMS. I am 12 DPO, still getting BFNs... Do you think I'm out? Well, if I am, at least I have a decent LP.

How are you today, Kitteh?

post #20 of 50
I know how you feel, anyalily. I'm right there with you, I've been weepy and on and off depressed for a couple of days.

According to FR my period is due today, but nothing. I still think I'm a 30 day cycle, so I'll be looking for AF to show upo n the 20 th, if she's coming this month. I am out of internet cheapies and refuse to use the one digital that I have until I'm at least a week late. Too man y bfns would just depress me more.

So I'm still hanging in there, trying to distract myself and praying that my pantyliner stays dry. Thanks for asking. Baby dust to you! I don't think you are out just because of a bfn at 12 dpo. It's not over til AF shows up!
