Ooh so cool Renaissance31! 

 

Thanks, delightedbutterfly :)

 

I feel soooooo pregnant right now. I have lots of very mild cramping, while usually I don´t start cramping until the day of or the day before my period. 

 

The only test I have access to right now is not an "early" detector, so I will wait until Saturday....although I am not sure what is worse - thinking I might be pregnant and building up excitement that might be dashed or having a test tell me I wasn´t pregnant and then that I was in a few days, possibly? It is solved for me as I only have one test! :) (On an island, long story ;))

Hi everyone!  Please move me to waiting to know.  I'm 3 DPO today.  Trying to not obsess over every feeling this month, since the past two months I've been so so hopeful and pretty certain I was pregnant without luck.  We are heading to the beach for a vacation with friends and their kiddos, so I'm hoping that will be a good distraction for me.  And I'm not packing a test so I'll have to wait until we get home (oh gosh, unless I sneak out to the store while we're there...I WON'T do that!!).  I should actually wait for three days after we get home to test anyway...I hope I can hold out!  The emotional roller coaster of the possible false negative for days--I just can't handle it.

 

Good luck to you all this month!

Ahhh, I'm like 8 days post-ovulation and my period is due in 6 days. Right before I read this, I was having a little mild cramping and thinking, oh, I must not be pregnant, feels like PMS. Then I read this and remembered that early cramping can be a pregnancy sign, plus I never cramp until a couple of days before my period. I made myself a promise that I wouldn't test this month until I was at least a day late, but I may break that promise and test on Sunday.

post #28 of 203

Hi All!

 

I am kind of new around the boards and just noticed this thread.  I posted this in another thread, but I will post it here!

 

 

DH and I have two beautiful children!  My DD and 4 and my DS is 3.  About 4 months after we had DS, DH had a vasectomy.  We knew about a year after he had it done, it was the biggest mistake ever.  We wish we could have it reversed, but $3500 is a lot of money for a one income family.  We decided at the end of last year to start praying that maybe it would reverse itself and in the meantime, save up some money if it didn't.  We also bought one of the Micra At Home Sperm Count microscopes.  We LOVE it.  The first time we used it, around the beginning of December there was absolutely nothing in his semen.  He started having pains a couple of months ago that he described as his vas being pulled on.  We decided to wait a little bit and do the test again.  When we did he had SPERM!  Not all of them were moving, which is understandable, but he had them.  Anyways, we found out he had them and we started trying.  We were both so excited!  Anyways, I am currently 16 DPO, 2 days late on my cycle.  My periods are ALWAYS like clockwork, 28-31 days (31 being the absolute most) and I am getting BFN's!  IDK what is going on, but I am going crazy.  I have absolutely no symptoms either way.  I do have MILD cramping, but that is about it.

 

So with all of that being said, I guess you can put me in the IDK what is going on category.  HAHA! 

 

Anyways, nice to meet you all!  Can't wait to get to know everyone!!

5 or 6 dpo and already getting antsy...this is trouble. Cramping today's it hard to say if its "something" or just gas...

Good luck momof2trying43, mamajen andmnewgirlintown!!!

Well AF showed her ugly face today and with a vengeance at that! 3 days late is and then starting no fun! Anyways, on to the next cycle.
Bonadi - hope the cramping is something good:)

Renaissance31 - have you tested again?

AFM - totally signed up for 3 months of VIP on FF today... Have only been a free member so far but I wanted all the features lol hoping 3 months will be long enough. If not then I'll probably bite the bullet for a year.

My hubs is funny. He is usually very reserved in the whole baby making things. Not this time. He's totally being super careful, doesn't want any sperm to be wasted and while he still doesn't understand the whole process he's totally wanting it to happen ASAP! And kids have always gravitated towards him and he's always been nice about it but the other day he was totally making faces at babies and talking to them and ANYTHING baby or pregnancy related on TV or FB he's all gaga and "awwwwwwwwww!" I'm kinda wondering who he is! I mean I love it but it's kind of shocking!
post #32 of 203

That´s so funny delightedbutterfly!

 

I took a test yesterday and it was negative, but then I looked at it an hour later and there was a slight line. No period today either, but forcing myself to wait until at least tomorrow to test again. 

 

I´m dying to have more symptoms if this is the real thing...with my miscarriage I didnt really have any symptoms and I am quite fearful about miscarrying again, so, embracing the headaches and slight nausea - although maybe I am making it up :)

Tested again. Negative greensad.gif Now I'm two days late. I'm thinking it was a chemical? greensad.gif
post #34 of 203
Just saw your post, momof2trying43 - so sorry!
post #35 of 203

Please add me to Waiting to O

 

AF showed up yesterday so that means we weren't successful in June. I should O in about 13 days so we will start trying again then. I have to admit it's a little discouraging when are you trying to get pregnant and nothing happens but in due time, all things work out.

post #36 of 203

I'm feeling discouraged here too.  I'm right around the time I should be Oing, but my CM is not normal.  Usually I have TONS of eggwhite for days before and I don't have it now.  I'm wondering if the stupid yeast ointment I was on messed things up.  I feel like I read it can do that for the cycle you use it for.  To add insult to injury it didn't even work and I'm fairly certain now that I don't even have an infection.  I think I may have just given myself dermatitis trying to "cure" an infection that I maybe had but don't have now??  I don't know.  DH and I did the BD last night, but my bits hurt like crazy afterward.  I don't think I could do it again this month.  gloomy.gif  I'm going to go to the doctor again and get a pap just to make sure everything is clear.  Hopefully she'll have some advice on how to stop my bits from hurting.  I keep trying to think what it could be!  I haven't changed laundry detergents or soaps or anything.  It did start right after we moved into a new house, but the house is in the same neighborhood--it's not like the water could be different.  If anyone has any ideas, let me know!

post #37 of 203

I took an early pregnancy test on Sunday that came back negative (my period is due on Thursday) so I'm thinking I'm probably out for this month, though I guess it might still be possible. Silver lining to not getting a BFP this month: I would have been due right in the middle of the SXSW music fest. It would have been a crappy birthday, and on a selfish note, we like to hit SXSW shows every year,  

post #38 of 203

Hey everyone!  

 

Mommyof2trying:  Sorry about your BFN :(.  I've never heard of that micra thingy and now I feel like maybe I want one too!  

 

JayRay:  What does your CM look like now?  What CD are you on?

 

NaturallyMo and Newgirlintwon:  Sorry you are out this month.  Hope the next one is the winner!

 

delightedbutterfly:  Let me know what you think of the VIP.  I have never paid cause I keep thinking, "what difference would it make?"

 

bonadl:  hang in there!!

 

AFM:  AF made her presence be known yesterday am.  So I'm officially out this mo.  Please move me to waiting to O.

Fertility apt is on Wed so long as DH doesn't start his new job that day.  Though I'm pretty sure they'll let him wait at least until after that to have him start. Feeling a bit discouraged today.  Some friends/acquaintances of ours who have been long time smokers and drinkers announced they are pg today..and I can't help but feel a little resentful that THEY can get pg but I can't!!  Don't get me wrong, I'm happy for them as they've also been wanting this for awhile, and they are much healthier now then they used to be.  But I want my piece of pie too!! 

 

So just trying to figure out what direction to go.  I'm kind of just holding out to see what this Doc recommends.  Hopefully he has something helpful to tell us.

 

Thinking fertile thoughts!!

CM looks creamy when I'm feeling optimistic.  When I'm being realistic, it's more like sticky.  I'm on CD17, though, now.  I usually ovulate on CD16.  We BD on CD15, so if things were normal and the sperm were able to survive, that was probably the best day.  Who knows.  Just have to trust that what is supposed to happen will happen.  Waiting another month isn't the end of the world.

 

After doing a lot of reading, I'm pretty sure I just have dermatitis.  A study was done on women who thought they had yeast infections and a shocking percentage (40%?  I can't remember now) just had dermatitis!!  I started using some hydrocortisone and already feel better.  I'd rather not use it when pregnant (although I did during my last pregnancy!  I didn't know it has risks.), so I wanted to get a few days in before possible implantation.  I don't know.  It's just so frustrating.  But it's a good reminder that there's just a lot of stuff that I can't control!

I'll update everyone's status' the afternoon wink1.gif

I was *really* in the mood last night but was trying to wait until today...

Woke up to a temp drop and really in the mood... And I actually slept last night so DH was almost out the door for work.

He has had a quiet last few days at work and I have never wanted him off work for a couple hours more!!!

I even checked my CM which I don't normally do. And it's a wee bit stretchy... I am really hopeful wink1.gif

Today is CD10 and last month's O date was CD 10. We BD on CD 7 & 8 so far so hoping for this cycle!
