So I just had the shortest and lightest period that I have ever had. I seriously bled so lightly for 2 days that it was almost spotting, and then the third day it was just spotting a tiny bit-nothing today. I'm not complaining, but it is weird lol.

John16n33: hmm, I agree with prescottchels that you should test again. Temps can be off for various reasons... BTW: what are you knitting? My goal for this year is to finish all of last year's unfinished projects . I've got a cardigan and a triangular shawl for mom, a pair of socks for DH and a pair of gloves for my cousin (those are pretty much done, just need the ends sewn in).
katiecornflakes: I imagine having your kids three months apart is also helpful for your budget? Your comment about lunaception has me wondering if I should try sleeping with an eye mask, we have quite a bit of light from various electronics in the bedroom...
Lilykay: I hadn't exactly considered the time of year for being pregnant, I envy those women who can say: I'll have a baby then, and boom, they make it happen. Now that I am pregnant I'm thinking that it's a good time because I won't hit the three month mark until after bulky sweater weather is over, in case there's anything to hide.
Trying not to obsess I think is why we're all here, isn't it? Best of luck this cycle!
Sparklemaman: Good luck with the charting! Hope it gets you to a BFP soon!
Xerxella: I hope your cycle straightens out soon so you can get back to some well-timed BDing.
Just FYI: my second beta was great and now I wish I'd asked for a third one since my appt isn't till next week Thursday. Back in Nov the nurse had told me the levels were rising appropriately though now that I know more I can see they were low. I think a third one this time would've been even more reassuring but I'll just have to practice my zen till next week.
Lidamama: I can't imagine postponing TTC that long, I feel like I've been waiting for such a long time already! But you know what's best for you and your family so may you get your BFP when you are ready.
AFM: Hope you ladies don't mind my posting here. I've been hanging back a bit, feeling like I'm straddling two worlds right now, not ready to fully commit to joining a DDC until I can confirm it's not another ectopic. The symptom spotting didn't stop after the 2WW, I'm still obsessing over every twinge, mostly worrying that it could mean something bad. I have moments when I can completely forget about it all, and those are great. Then there are the small discomforts that make it more real and suddenly I'm back to obsessing...post #205 of 2111/10/13 at 10:55pm
I ordered a pack of Wondfos tonight from Amazon I can go testing crazy if I want lol It's a pack of 50 tests for like $15. I couldn't resist. When I told DP how many there were he was like, "good god...I hope we don't need that many!" Totally cracked me up. I explained the pic I'd seen of someone who'd tested several days in a row and could show the progression of the intensity of the positive lines. The Biology geek in me comes out and I'd love to watch that happen.
I'd never heard of them before so many thanks to whomever mentioned them upthread or where ever it was on mdc that I read about them!
ETA-Dakipode I like your idea to finish all your unfinished knitting projects from last year. I was digging around in my shed the other day and came across a bag of unfinished knitting projects-I kinda snarled at it and shoved it back on the shelf...maybe someday... right now I'm finishing up a set of mama & baby lambs to give my cousins baby for her 1st b-day next month and wondering which hat pattern I should pick to make for my friend who's been waiting a year for me to produce a hat that matches a shawl she's had for years that she doesn't wear cuz she needs a hat lol and she's 80 so I should really get on itpost #206 of 2111/11/13 at 12:22am
John16n33: I'd also say test again! If you ovulated you have to shed the uterus lining your body built and two days of very light spotting does not do that. I don't want to get your hopes up but one friend had several days of light spotting (after she found out she was pregnant so it was not implantation). As to symptoms, another friend I was visiting yesterday is having the most symptom free pregnancy ever.
Dakipode: It is so easier to be walking around with a big belly in the summer than in the winter, at least from my observation. In my Mom's group, I gave birth just before the cold weather came, the rest gave birth one or two months later. I saw them complaining about trying to fit their bellies into something warm because no one really wants to buy an expensive maternity jacket only to use it for a couple of months.
BTW, sorry to say this but this is only the start of obsessing. First it is about the first 3 months of pregnancy. Then if the baby is developing properly. Then about the birth. Then about sudden death syndrome. Then once the baby is around 6 months old about all the developmental milestones. At some point I was googling if there is a weird nerve disorder where baby does not feel pain all because my DD didn't cry at all after getting a shot. My MiL told me and now I believe her "As a mother, you never stop worrying. You just get used to it."
Prescottchels That is exactly what DP said after he say the package of pregnancy tests I bought (and it only had 10!!!).
AFM - 9 DPO, no symptoms. At least the weekend is packed full so I won't have too much time to think about it. After only a few days of improving my diet (cut down a lot on the bread, and almost no sugar), I'm feeling much better. Energy levels are up and the blues are almost gone. I only to need to get back on track with working out. I just hope I lose those few pounds (4 to be exact) I gained over the holidays moping around, watching shows on end and eating sweets. Ladies, I highly recommend calf liver. Every once in a while I eat it and I just feel so good and energetic afterward.
Have a great weekend!post #207 of 2111/11/13 at 2:54amQuote:Originally Posted by dakipode

DAKIPODE- you sound just like me, I'm so obsessed that this pregnancy is gone miscarry , I feel like I got no symptoms and I'm constantly checking for blood. I wish I was in the US so I could get the doctor to check me out, but here in UK I gotta wait till 10-12 weeks. I'll b crazy by then lol😝post #208 of 2111/11/13 at 9:32am
Eh I might pick up another dollar test, but I really don't think I am. For the two period days it was more like a really light period, like somewhere between spotting and a light flow. Then a little bit of spotting on cd3 and one tiny incident of spotting yesterday afternoon. I tested at 13dpo and got a bfn so I'm about 99% sure I'm not pregnant.
prescott- It's funny you mention that because I was about to buy some wondfo's too. I think it would be cool to have the progression pics, plus I don't want to spend as much money this cycle as I did last cycle lol.post #209 of 2111/11/13 at 10:20ampost #210 of 2111/12/13 at 7:12pmThread Starter
