Welcome oxford and anyone else jumping in here that I've missed . Hope your stay is a short one!
BBL to catch up here. Hope everyone had a great weekend .
dahlia, jjh, amyc, and katie--- thanks for verifying that my eyes are not totally shot! LOL oh man you guys I am soooo excited. Pic from this morning, 12DPO FMU, still super faint... But I had totally started to worry that all I was seeing on 10 and 11 were evaps... here the pic shows yesterday's strip on the top and this morning's on the bottom - fresh and wet still and within the magic window of time and it is totally a line, a very faint line, but a line no less! lol not an evap! I'm about to jump out of my skin over here! yayyy!
GL Blonhrt! FX!
Welcome MamaTara! How old are your daughters?
Good luck with your next cycle! It looks like I'll be joining you shortly.
Renaissance31 - Looks positive to me! Congratulations!
Does your temp normally drop before AF? I had a drop today of .6(f) I'm expecting it means game over for this cycle. Hugs to you, it's very discouraging to be so hopeful and then have such a low temperature.
I'm sorry oxford :(
AFM: Temp dive today at 11DPO ( my chart ) I'm expecting this means that AF is on her way.
They are probably planning on an early ultrasound (that would be around the 8 week mark right?) and that's why it will be in March. I normally don't get seen until 12 weeks. This first trimester means keeping up on your prenatals, sleeping lots, and eating whatever your stomach can handle. :)
Congratulations to those of you who got positives!
I'm only 6dpo :( but my face is breaking out and that is not a normal period symptom for me (I'm weird and break out early in my cycle if I'm going to), and I'm irritable, but that may be because my face is a mess lol. I hate 33 day cycles, I was supposed to be able to test in a couple days boo.
Welcome everyone; wishing you all a short stay with us here!
Sorry to those of you who are out this month :-(
Blonhrt, I feel like we haven't heard from you in a while. Did you POAS yesterday or today? Fx for you!
AFM, this post-loss cycle is wacky. I'm CD18 today and I'm quite sure I haven't ovulated yet (my cycles are usually 28-29 days long with Oing on CD15 or so). Things were gearing up this weekend and I thought I would have O'd by now but I have plenty of EWCM again today and I haven't had any post-O nipple pain yet which I'm expecting. So the BDing continues :-)
anyone want to share TWW symptoms?
I think I may be pg, but it's too early to test, because today is CD 19.
But, things seem to have gotten off to a quick start...
We had a particularly amorous time midcycle...full pheromone madness of the type that preceded each of our other children's conceptions.
And then I started cramping right after sex, and then suddenly lost all interest. In fact, it hurt. And then I suspected I was pg, and got super moody...but DH's reaction was mixed because change of any type is hard for him to get acclimated to, even if it's moving a piece of furniture and he wanted to in the first place. Lost my appetite.
Then I stopped cramping. But I looked in my own eyes and I looked...different. Like I had before the times I had suspected long before a test confirmed.
Then tried to tell myself it was my imagination, and got some comfort from just assuming I was most certainly not pregnant.
Have been getting sudden hot flashes at night, have to throw off the blankets.
Now, I swear my nipples are darkening, and my armpits STINK! and felt like I had to take a nap today, or just pass out on my feet.
Trying not to go nuts, wondering which way things are going to pan out, but I really do think I might be pg. Then I tell myself nahh, I am just imagining things.
So excited to hear abt the positives!!
A couple ppl have commented on charting etc, another option to know that worked for me with know the exact date of ovulation is the clearblue easy digital ovulation test sticks. I ordered them through Costco online and could not believe how accurate it was to get that happy face letting me know when I was ovulating. Highly reccomend it and the price was good thru Costco. I ovulated on day 19 last month an day 21 this month so it was great to know the exact day as my cycles are so long.
