December TWW Thread - Page 2

post #21 of 788

New vague pregnancy symptoms - twice today I got so dizzy I thought I was going to pass out, and my boobs are sore. Still could be PMS (and my body telling me to drink some water, you're dehydrated!), but obsessing is fun, lol, am I right? Well, we'll see. I was half-convinced I was pregnant last month, but I had a whole different set of symptoms. Anyone else had any weird symptoms? 

post #22 of 788

So my cramping/pokey/pinch-y/twinge-y feelings lasted through last evening and renewed this morning. It is especially noticeable when I am sitting. SO much like when I O but just a bit pokier and crampier. I do not typically have this feeling at 9 DPO, or ever really. No significant change in CM as of yet. My coffee definitely tasted off this morning, could hardly drink it, and I do love me my morning cuppa. It was very metallic. I've fallen asleep before 8pm the past few nights and still feel exhausted. I look like I haven't slept! Having very vivid dreams too. Sigh. I SO want to test!! But I don't want to be doubly disappointed like last month... Not sure I agree this obsessing is fun, I feel more discombobulated actually dizzy.gif But there it is...

Yeah, I get it SparkleMaman. If I can make it through this weekend without AF rearing her ugly head, I'm going to test Monday. It may still be too soon but I'm willing to try. I ordered some more pregnancy tests yesterday, JIC. Got the digital ones. Never tried those but I thought a pic of "pregnant" would be a cute way to announce, more so than 2 pink lines. I'm feeling a lot of crampy, twingy pains low in my pelvis and my back too. Could be AF coming on, but who knows. I'm not 100% that we DTD at the right time, so I really shouldn't get my hopes up too much. redface.gif We weren't officially "trying" yet anyway. I'm just ready to be preggo!

Sparklemama, I feel  you.  Last month, I got bfn after bfn, despite feeling pregnant.  I got a few faint +/evaps at the end, and then a bfn/af 3 days early.   Very learly loss?  I hate the word "chemical" it sounds so insensitive. 

I am (maybe) 7dpo today, and had some crazy ovulation/progesterone related symptoms around O.  I am bf my 22 month old, and have only had 3 periods so far, so I'm unsure what my normal is.  I only had one after my DD was born in 09/08, then got pg, then had a m/c at 11wks, then had 2 periods, got pg with DS and here I am.

I keep thinking I'll be able to just not think about it until my period is due, but I suck at that!  HA!

Anyway, it's great to have other mamas feeling the same.  As bad as I feel that they feel like THIS, I'm glad to have this sounding board. 

My nipples were SO sore for about 4 days, then subsided.  Thought early pg symptom, but now I think it was the progesterone from O.  Never really nursed through cycles before, so I'm learning more about my body as I go. 

Looking forward to hearing about everyone's week.

Joyfam- I'm sorry about your insensitive friend.  People really don't think before they speak sometimes.  You can interpret your faith in any way you do, and make choices for your own life in any way as well.  No one can tell you that your way of religion is wrong.  What a very personal subject for an outside person to dictate.  I am not a Christian myself, but I hope your faith will get you through this time, and will help you rejoice when your baby is in your arms at last.  Hugs.

Um ... I just got my digital tests from amazon and they sent me TWO boxes of 2 tests. I thought I only ordered one! Guess I will have lots to pee on! 

post #26 of 788

Tiny dot of red blood today, like the size of a pencil tip. 6 or 7 dpo. But...ambiguous, always ambiguous. THAT should be the name of the 2ww.

For real!

Hi Everyone. This month is our first month of TTC our #2. I am charting and my temp rose on Dec 1. I guess that makes me 6 DPO. I think I'll probably test next friday. I've had pretty regular cycles for about 8 months, despite still nursing my 14 mo son (ALL the time). I'm excited about starting to TTC again and am curious to see how long it will take us. Last time, we didn't have any trouble, despite living in separate states because I was in school. My husband and I have a little wager going. If I get preggo this month or in month 3, I get 4 days of sleeping in on the weekends (ie. no baby care or animal feeding, etc in the morning). And if I get preg in month 2 or 4, he gets to sleep in. orngbiggrin.gif I'm really hoping it happens this month! As you can see, we are going the positive route and not worrying about anything past month 4.winky.gif In my first pregnancy, I spent a ton of time lurking here but never posted. I plan to be more involved here this time! Good luck to everyone trying this month!

Sparklemaman I am so anxious for you to test!

Serenyd that sounds like a sign to me! Poas soon smile.gif but no too soon lol.

Emily11megan I agree completely! That tiny dot of blood could be IB?? smile.gif

AUvetmom welcome! I'm new as well, joined during my TWW last month. I hope your stay here is short! I love your positive attitude and wager with your husband smile.gif

Oh and AFM I'm waiting to ovulate. Hopefully next week. I'm on CD7. Just hanging out trying to stay zen this month... Only spending half the day on google is zen right wink1.gif
post #31 of 788
Mamamash, I'm sure it will be easy to stay zen when the holidays come around! So much going on will keep you busy smile.gif

Sparkle mama, try to think about something else other than testing! Try to hold out, I know it's haaaard!

Afm, I'm leaving Saturday on a week long cruise so I won't post until I'm back, in which I'll be in the TWW! Luckily I'll have the grandparents around this month when I'm ovulating, and DH is on vacation! I'm feeling lucky this holiday season. Just kind of bummed that I won't be able to announce anything by Christmas, I thought that would have been so cute wink1.gif
post #32 of 788
Ha ha ha! Obviously I'm not the only one googling everything with "pregnancy symptom" behind it. Lol. My name is Aimee, I'm about 11dpo and this wait to test is killing me!

I gave in and peed on one of the digi's today - "not pregnant." But it's really to early to test. I did not get a BFP until 14dpo with my daughter. Actually I'm glad I did because it helped me stop obsessing so much! 

post #34 of 788

Well it was a BFN this morning greensad.gif  I am trying not to read too much into it. I felt what really seemed like implantation cramping Tuesday and Wednesday. Increased thick CM yesterday. I will test again tomorrow. I feel oddly calm, though clearly compelled to test.

 

A cruise sure sounds nice. And yes, I agree, if it's only half the day = zen winky.gif

 

Have a great day mamas!!

Yeah, I tested again this AM and big fat NO. But my nips are burning, I've had cramping/low back pain, and when I rolled over last night one of my round ligaments cramped up like it does when I'm pregnant. And lots of things I usually like have been tasting off. Maybe I'm not pregnant, but I'm starting to feel a bit certifiably crazy! dizzy.gif

 

ETA: Oh my CM has also changed from watery to white and creamy. I dunno if that means anything. I would never have thought to even check it if you hadn't mentioned it SparkleMaman!

Hi can I join please? Thanks sparklemama for the invite! I didn't see this thread.

 

I'm 7 DPO today and just tested and got a BFN greensad.gif trying to keep hopeful as 7 dpo is early and it wasn't FMU... I'll test again tomorrow at 8 DPO with FMU this time.

 

Fingers crossed for everyone here!

Hi there! I'd like to join back in too. I don't think I posted here at all last month.  This is cycle 4.  It looks like there are quite a few of us getting ready to test in the next couple of days. Thinking of each of you and BFP's for the Holidays!

 

AFM: I think this I am 12 DPO.  Last cycle was 28 days, and I am on CD 29 now. I am symptom spotting like its my job. I've had AF like cramps off and on all week. I am running to the bathroom thinking AF is coming but nothing.  Last night I woke up at 3 a.m, sick to my stomach and starving. I ate a whole banana, some ham and cheese and was able to fall back to sleep.  I have not done that since I was preg with my first.  Trying, trying to keep from testing until CD 31, but I don't know if I can.

Welcome to all the newbies... lots of baby dust your way!!!

 

Samy23- 7dpo is very early to get a positive test. Don't count yourself out. Look at the beginning thread it'll tell you percents on BFP's for DPO.

 

Jillgayle- Have you tested yet? If not when will you.... it sounds promising.

 

Mamamash- I think our cycles are days apart so we're both in the waits to O

 

AFM- Well I honestly didn't think I was going to come back on here as more than lurking or encouragement to others. But I was still charting and all that stuff in case my hubby decided he was on board to TTC. Well yesterday was CD9 and I was getting ready to go grocery shopping with my DH and DS and my hubby came on to me and said in so many words that he was good with having another baby. I told him not to say it just because he wants to DTD and he could just wear a condom, but he was all about it. So looks like we're in the game for trying to have another (our last) baby!!! And even better news is that his sister came over with her DH last night and told us that they're expecting in August!!! They've been trying for almost a year! I'm so excited for them. My DH is even more on board now since he won't have the guilt of getting pregnant before them and having kids so close in age! YAY!!! Now I just need to O lol.
 

post #39 of 788

I'd like to join too smile.gif   I've been watching the TWW and saner moon threads for a while and finally decided to get out some of my 2ww crazies.

 

Congrats on all the BFPs! joy.gif  And dust.gifto the rest of us!

 

 

I think I am about 6 dpo (based on the most ewcm I've had in my life!)... We dtd twice around then, which I think could be enough? I have plans to test on the solstice if af is late, though it's going to be really hard for me to wait that long!  

post #40 of 788
Welcome all! BFP's for all!

Countrybound how fun would it be if we were due date buddies smile.gif

My closest friend had her baby boy today. She had a planned c section for 12/12/12 but apparently he didn't want to wait. He sure does make my baby hunger that much worse smile.gif
