Hi all. I think tomorrow's temp will reveal that today is O day. We did end up trying, so we'll see what happens. whistling.gif

post #3 of 61

Good luck Anyalily!

 

I'm hoping for the same temp rise tomorrow. DH and I have not BD'd yet, but plan to when he gets home from work around 10:30. Now I just have to stay awake til then!

post #4 of 61

My DP and I decided we're going to start trying to conceive TODAY! So excited to work towards baby number two.

Amlikam - Congrats!!!! What wonderful news. I wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy and birth jumpers.gif

 

Anyalily- Good luck this month winky.gif

Modmidwifemama - nice to meet you. Sending lots of baby dust your way dust.gif

 

Kitteh- go baby go, lol. I have a big temp dip too before O. Its been more reliable than opk's for me. Have fun wink1.gif

 

AFM:  9 dpo and making my self a little crazy the last 2 days. I think I feel something then I don't. Most of my "symptoms" can be attributed to something else.  I'm waiting to test until I've missed my period so I have a ways to go. Trying to stay busy with work.....

post #10 of 61
Thanks for the new thread!

Hanging out in 2ww land. I wasn't sure if I o'ed on day 11 or 16 and with a negative test this morning, it must have been day 16. That makes me now 9DPO. Longest. 2WW. Ever.
post #11 of 61

Amlikam- Congrats!!!!

 

AFM- This is it! This Friday I will know if we were successful! AF is supposed to start Friday, which is good because this not knowing is driving me crazy!!

Good luck everyone! 

post #12 of 61

Amilkam-- Congrats!! how many DPO were you when you got your BFP?

 

JustJenny--sending you strength! 9-14DPO is a tough time to get through!! I always cave, but I told myself that in the future I'm not going to!

 

LivingSky--Ditto to you, it's gotta be even tougher because you thought you could have been further along. TWW sucks, even more so when it stretches into the 3WW, LOL

 

InLove2009--Good luck! Lots of baby dust your way

 

anyalily--did you get your temp spike this morning?

 

 

AFM--DH got home later than expected and I was exhausted and the headcold was a little worse, so we skipped BDing. We agreed that we weren't going to force ourselves to do it when we really aren't in the mood. Don't ever want it to feel like a chore, you know? So then I temped this morning hoping for a spike, but it just went up by .2 degrees which was disappointing. Maybe I'll have a slow rise? I guess I just have to wait and see.

 

Then all day long I've been feeling a sort of heaviness and bloat really low in my pelvis, which is just odd. This whole cycle has been really odd, starting off with the lightest period known to man, and on top of that I've had cramping and bloat all cycle long and that usually only happens around AF. I have no idea what is going on with my crazy body.

 

I found a few more Wondfo ovulation strips in my closet, so I took one on a whim today (because I'm addicted to peeing on sticks) and it is another bold positive. That makes 3 days in a row of definite +OPKs, with a 4th that was "almost" positive the day before the positive streak started. Again, WTF is going on with my body.

post #13 of 61

Kitteh- I know what you mean about not wanting it to be a chore! Last year when we were trying it felt like a chore. And it made us tense. And we fought. No good at all! 

I am of no help with the temping, because I could never get accurate temps for myself either, and it just drove me crazy. So I stopped temping. As for the 4 days of positive OPKs... I have no idea. Maybe you have not gotten the 'one' yet? A friend of mine thought she was ovulating for 4 days, and on the fifth she got one that was way darker, so she knew the other ones were juts leading up to it.... Or maybe you o'd more than once? Does that even happen? 

 

Good luck! 

post #14 of 61
kitteh - I can't remember - have you tried taking a pregnancy test? OPKs can show positive when you're pregnant...
post #15 of 61

LivingSky--I've heard the OPKs pick up pregnancy too. And honestly, I just FEEL pregnant. First of all, I have light periods but never just spotting like I had this time. And I've been crampy and gassy and bloated all cycle, with dull lower-back aches and pressure in my lower abdomen/pelvis. I've also been really tired and low energy and CRANKY. LOL even DH has been saying that I've gotta be pregnant. But my boobs aren't in on it, and with Ela they were HUGE and sore by 6 or 7 weeks. I figure that with DD nursing they would be the first symptom, but aside from some mild nipple sensitivity, nothing seems to be going on there. So there is that.

 

I took about a million HPTs during the TWW. The first batch I had were from early-pregnancy-tests .com and they all seemed to have a really super faint line,which was probably just an an evap. Then I bought some wondfos off Amazon and all of those were negative. I just took my last Wondfo on Saturday and it was negative too.

 

So I'm at a total loss.

post #16 of 61

Kitteh - Thanks for the encouragement ;)  As for you that is a little crazy! Maybe your sickness is delaying O? Wouldn't that cause a opk to keep saying positive? I only have 2 months of opk under my belt and it didn't go well, lol.  Your symptoms today sure sounds like pregnancy.....Hope you get a clearer answer soon....

post #17 of 61
Kitteh, you're still BFing your DD, right? I know when I was expecting my DD2, I was still BFing and my boobs didn't grow until almost the end of my pg. My DD1 weaned around the end of my first trimester, and my boobs got SMALLER! So I asked my local LLL leader and she dug up some info which says that if you've BFed in the past your body has done the changes it needs to do for BFing already, so you may not experience an increase in your boobs until close to the birth because your body doesn't need much time to prepare this time around. All that to say that you may not see an increase in your bust size as a first sign of pregnancy!

That is the saddest thing I've ever heard. I spent most of my life pretty darn flat chested, so I was loving the full C cup that I got while pregnant and during the first year of DD's life. In fact, I dare say that the full rack was quite possibly the best thing about pregnancy and early motherhood (Yeah, I guess the whole baby part was pretty great too.) Now that they've shrunk back to almost their former size (only floppier and covered in stretch marks, SEXY!) I figured it was the perfect time to go get knocked up again and give em a natural boost. *Sigh*

 

So I caved yesterday and bought some FRERs and peed on one, BFN. No idea WTF is going on with my body. Nipples hurt like a mother when DD is nursing, still feeling bloaty and some slight nausea here and there, but no cramping today. I plan to do an OPK later because I'm crazy. And kind of curious to see what it says.

 

My cervix is a little lower and firmer today, and CM is creamy. BBT went up another .2 degrees this morning, but its still not high enough to set off FF's ovulation detector. Also, I thought it was interesting to note that my temps are all pretty low. Generally around 97.3 or so, with my one dip going into the high 96s but I temp vaginally, so I'd expect them to be higher!
