I wish this could be like my first pregnancy and just happen. Surprise! You're pregnant. I remember I missed my period and I was like hmm, so I got a test. I wasn't trying, it just happened. Now that I'm trying I am symptom spotting and POAS like crazy. I need to stop! I took one this morning and negative. I'm going to try to hold out for 3 more days, when AF is due.

 

And I will never ever get mirena again. I don't like how much it's messed with my cycle and O'ing. If I hadn't been on it I would have a clearer picture of how many days my cycle is, that would make this much easier!

I pretend to be laid back online, but at 11 dpo, I've already poas a few times :P I don't know much about the meanings of cervical position - mine was really low last night, closer to the vaginal opening than I can ever remember it being. Does that mean anything?! 

 

My first child was a happy "oops," and this time we're planning a baby.... I wish I had just accidentally made the 2nd one as well! This TTC crap is turning me into a wack-a-doodle. 

 

I keep telling myself I'll wait a few days to poas again, but who am I kidding? Tomorrow is 12 days, and I know I'll test 1st thing in the AM... 

 

FX'd for you!!!!!!

Are the ovulation strips usually accurate?
post #23 of 234
I'm 10 dpo and woke up feeling totally naseous. Not typical for me. Of course I had the urge to poas. Im prob going coocoo but I swear there is a shadow of a line... Do u see it or am I just hopeful?

Well I downloaded my days app to keep up with period ovulation and such. Has anyone ever used this app? I know I have said I'm goin the relax way but since I started my period on a 34 day cycle last month it is set to that so I'm not sure if its right cuz my cycle has been changing but my ovulation days are from the 3-8 and the 8th being a high day which I didn't look at it this month and I did this morning after me and hubby dtd and its my high day. Could it be right or should I just wait? I'm not sure how to tell if I'm ovulating and I don't have money to just buy ovulation test all the time and stuff. Some advice please

I don't have experience with that app but fertility friend has been awesome for me. I got cheap ovulation strips on eBay. Without those I would have no idea when I o

Theoretically I should be starting AF in 2 days. Still no sign. CP is mid and closed. I POAS this morning and negative still. At this point I just want my period to come already if she's going to!

Congrats!!!

the best way is to relax.. when I got pregnant I told hubby that I was going to use the OPK's  and just let it happen.. so happened i didn't use any from the time that  I finish my period and one day when I got home my mind just told me to go and take the OPK and to my surpriseI got a smile.gif ( I used the clear blue)  and hubby and I BD that day (tuesday) and every day till the end of the week and got a + test at 8DPO. 

 

 

Just try and relax...

I tested positive on a opk strip on Calender day 8. I posted my strip for everyone to look at, hoping for some responses but got none. My cycle varies here lately. Anywhere from 28-32 days. Which is odd for me, so I got on eBay and bought a big pack of opks and hcg strips. Sure enough, positive on cd8. I use the MyDays app as well, it is nice to note everything on, and give u your next expected period, but if the strip I done is correct, it is off on my ovulation dates. However, it is nice to be able to go in and mark each day that dtd and it gives you a memo, so I write down how I am feeling, symptom wise, everyday, so I can go back and look at it, that way I can tell if the same thing was going on with me the month before, or if it something new. I believe it is really hard for any of those calculator to calculate exactly when you are going to ovulate, especially if your cycle is varying from month to month, that is why I bought lh strips. I also went and got some pre-seed this month. Hoping everything goes well. Hope this helps

Update on me. CP is still mid to high, seems a little more open now, maybe sign that AF is coming? I have an insane amount of EWCM though, and on the cervix it's creamy looking. I'm waiting until the 10th (expected AF date) to test again, I keep getting my hopes up!

I inverted this photo on my computer (control+option+command+8) and it ALMOST looks like there wants to be a line there. I feel like I'm starting to go crazy! I have anxiety issues and I've been off of my anxiety meds for over a month now due to TTC, so maybe that's where my obsessiveness is coming from. Argh!

 

post #36 of 234
OK...I just done my noon lh strip, just to check things out. The one from cd8 was my definate surge. The test I just did, had no signs of being positive. So I am definitely ovulating early than what all the calculators estimate. Dtd the last 3 nights, and last night used pre~seed. Let's Hope this works. Good luck to all.

Thanks to everyone who had kind words to say to me. I started bleeding on Sunday while on the road for work, and it increased until today, when I finished miscarrying naturally. It was so surreal holding the gestational sac in my hand; there wasn't really anything to see inside it because the baby had been so small when it stopped growing. It was still intense.

 

I don't know when I'll be back. My husband is already talking about trying again, but I am not feeling positive about this right now. I'm going to give it some time and see how I feel in a few months.

I'm so sorry mama. Give it time, you'll know when you are ready.  <3 and hugs!

My condolences to those who have lost a baby this month. I pray that when you try again the baby is a good and sticky. sticky.gif

 

The fact that I just started AF (and she should be gone by tomorrow or Friday) seems to trivial compared to the things some of your ladies are going through. I hope for the best for you all.

So, I'm breastfeeding my 14 month old (my third child) and I have not gotten my cycle back yet.  Yesterday I had cramps and a low backache and I thought, I bet I am going to start my period tomorrow, we will have to start being careful if we arent ready to have another one yet!  Ha!  Now today, my breasts are so sore to the touch (abnormal), and I'm all crampy and tired. I also notice a lot of saliva, which makes me kind of nauseous.  I just think I'm pregnant, even though it's only 3 or 7 days after sex. Could be wrong, but it is a hunch.  Anyone else have a similar story?
