Hi ladies. Sorry for the mini-thread this week. My house was torn up over the weekend and I only got back to my world yesterday. By then, I'd forgotten. Looks like I am doing a pretty good job not trying this month, huh?

 

That being said, I just POAS for fun. I didn't even know how many DPO I was, now I looked it up and I am 8-10 DPO. I got a squinter on a Wondfo, about 5-7 minutes... A super duper light shadow. I am so not sounding the alarm yet. It wasn't even FMU. I dipped a second one and there is an even lighter shadow, can't even be sure it's there. I guess I will try tomorrow morning and see what it looks like. No congratulations yet, please. It still could be this... neg.gif

 

Kitteh, have you POAS yet? How was the race?

Glad everything's ok. Good vibes and crossed fingers for you anyalily goodvibes.gif

AnyaLily... Toes crossed for an FMU BFP tomorrow!

post #5 of 24

anyalily, thanks for the new thread and I hope your squinter turns into a BFP!

Thanks for all the good wishes lady. Three faint faint squinters today, the latest this evening. I can't wait for tomorrow morning! I have noticed I am needing to pee often! It is tempting to POAS every time! Thank goodness for Wondfos. 

 

Hoping we all get lots of BFPs this month!

post #7 of 24

I know I haven't been on in a few weeks- I guess I am hiding. We know we are ready for this but the long road is difficult (its very emotional for both of us). We are trying to remain positive but I think are both struggling. A lot of our friends and family are pregnant or are having their babies and its hard to be happy for them while feeling so much jealous.

 

We are hopeful that in the next few months things will get better. We are getting married in 4 months- spending alot of time on planning.

 

However, we are in couples counselling- hoping that we can feel better about everything.

 

We also have a doctor's appointment next Monday (hoping that will help move us in the right direction).

I'm assuming that your house was torn up over the bed bug fiasco? We are going to have to do that soon and I'm really REALLY not looking forward to it! Still have no real evidence of bites, but I know that they could just be lying in wait, or waiting to hatch if that adult I found was a female. My skin crawls just thinking about it. Hope that whatever you did solved the problem. Also, I've been meaning to PM you for info on your more natural treatment suggestions.

 

As for squinters, OMG exciting! Have you tried again yet with FMU?

 

I have been trying to be zen this week and was going to wait until after my HM on Sunday to test. But then this past Sunday I ran a local 10k and did horribly. It was my second worst time for a 10k, I just felt so winded and beat, and I thought I was going to puke at the end. I finished over 5 minutes slower than my most recent race! My recent training hasn't been stellar, but I don't think I've really lost THAT much fitness. So in the back of my mind I'm thinking "maybe I'm pregnant? At least that would give me an excuse for the poor performance"

 

So then last night I had the urge to POAS and even though I was only 9dpo I went for it, thinking it would be good to know either way before my upcoming race. I swear I saw the faintest shaddow, but it was really so faint that I couldn't be sure. Then DD woke me at 5:30 this morning and I tried another Wondfo, another squinter. Dipped a FRER and there was the faintest line, but definitely there! I'm trying to stay neutral until I see that like get darker, but I'm excited.

 

FX for both of us, and baby dust to everyone!

Squeal! How funny that we both tested last night, both got a squinter. Sounds like we had similar mornings, too! I am just looking forward to seeing those strips get darker. I am jumping WAY ahead, but I hope we are in the DD club together. blowkiss.gif

 

The bed bug thing was quite and ordeal. Honestly, my poor DH did most of the hard work because DD came down with a fever the day we were supposed to do the big purge, after DAYS of laundry and madness. But we did it, and no bites since, knock wood. As I unpack the 20 huge bags of washed laundry, I am getting rid of as much as I can. There is absolutely no reason to have so much stuff, even though most of it is nice stuff! It is just an overabundance.

 

My plan is to get rid of a lot of stuff now and if this ever happens again it will not be as hard to go through all the washing. That was definitely the hardest part. The pre-treatment was hard too. It was definitely a major thing in my life, one I hope never to go through again. I will PM you what I learned about checking for them, because if you find them early it is much easier to treat.

OK, ladies. I did indeed get another TFP (tiny fat positive) this morning. It is still light, but definitely there, dark enough that I could see it in dim morning light. I feel happy, cautious, hopeful and faithful that it will be what it is meant to be. Ironically, I really didn't think our timing was good, we were only together a few times, and then it was a few days before O, according to my chart. Also, we conceived the very same week that we did with DD five years ago. So, if this is sticky, we will have a very close due date. Oh well.

 

I am going into this weighing a lot, so I know nutrition and exercise are going to have to be my focus. Here's hoping for a healthy, happy 9 months and beyond! And I wish for BFPs for all of you!

 

I am not graduating myself yet, and I will be sticking around to do the thread, at least for this month.

So excited for anyalily and kitteh!  Stay sticky bean, stay! goodvibes.gif

post #15 of 24

joy.gif Congrats for you both Anyalily and kitteh! I hope they are sticky!

I went to the doctor and everything is ok. She said that it is probably just my cyst, and that it may have ruptured. I am supposed to go for an ultrasound if the pain comes back (because then it obviously did not rupture). I am 6 days late on AF today. I tested the day AF was due, and have not since. I have to go buy another test. I am thinking/HOPING that is O'd really late in my cycle, like  CD20 or later. Which would explain why the test was negative last friday. However, I am trying not to get my hopes up. 

 

Good luck Everyone!!

Fingers crossed for you! With my first kiddo I didn't test positive until I was late a few days. Not for lack of trying...

Welcome Jesepumpkin! This is a great place to hang out while TTC.

 

Kitteh, let me know when you want me to add you graduates.

 

AFM - I just graduated myself. I know it's early and anything can happen, but I want to let the joy in and allow myself to get excited. And I am excited! Just starting to feel some random twinges and the familiar random stabbing feeling in my cervix. I got that early on with DD, so it doesn't worry me. I also have some crampiness that comes and goes, also familiar. I am hoping to have just enough symptoms that I know I am really pregnant, but not so much morning sickness this time, please!

 

My Wondfo was a bit darker this morning. Stick baby, stick! goodvibes.gifBFPs all around, please!

anyalily - Hope you have a sticky baby!
