Sorry ao05, hope to see you again soon!
My bfn was followed by some pink spotting tonight. Weird, last month I started my period the day I tested too...I guess it will be full blown AF tommorow! YEAY! Lol
Merry Christmas everyone! Hope you all had a great day and that one more day in the 2WW flew by! It always feels like life is about counting days when TCCing, doesn't it?
Hugs on the BFNs, Cindy and Dahlia, hopefully AF still stays away.
Beautiful lines, Mamamash!!
Becky, I did ov last Friday. I'm going to try hard to hold out testing until 1/1. When are you thinking you'll test? Anyone else want to have a POAS party on 1/1? Awesome New Years Day activity!! :)
MamaMash So glad your Christmas announcements went over so well. Such a cute idea! Thinking of you and wishing you a wonderful, healthy pregnancy. Your DH's reaction is sweet. Right on target with what you'd mentioned regarding each of your levels of urgency. I am so, so glad you got your BFP sooner rather than later
Katiecornflakes I too was planning to test New Year's Eve and/or Day, that would put me at 10 and 11 DPO (assuming I O'd Friday, which seems pretty sure). I am scared to stare at a BFN, that lonely line is so sad to look at, but I am already getting excited to test!! A little testing party sounds great to me and a BFP would be a fabulous New Year's treat Becky You are correct on timing of implantation and testing but a sensitive test can often detect pregnancy by 10 DPO, though certainly not in all women and definitely not if implantation doesn't occur until 10 DPO!! Your safest bet is always to wait until you're actually late and barring that, 12-14 DPO, if you can hold out 1/3 is your better bet - I don't think I'll last that long. So sorry about your Clomid side effects. Hoping they subside very soon.
Good luck with your testing (and bargain hunting) JoyfamMama!!
Fx Blonhrt, Dahlia and Cindy-Lu! Thursday seems long enough for sure Blonhrt. Hang in there Dahlia!!
AFM 5 DPO. Waiting patiently. or not. Trying. Planning to see a very good friend from high school and her sweet 7 month old baby girl this afternoon. They don't live nearby but are visiting for the holidays. Very excited to see them. That and awaiting the impending storm tonight, we should get 2 feet or more of snow by tomorrow morning. Lots of shoveling (and super fun snow play and hot cocoa drinking with DD) in my future! Mamas!!
