Jenjy tell me about it. Just got cross hairs again (3rd time!) on CD 42 and we're at the end of CD 46... And our timing for those CH sucked greensad.gif but my temp dipped below cover again today and so if it's gone like the other two times then it'll be down in the morning!

My skin has stopped breaking out though. That's a good thing!

But I don't even feel like AF is remotely on her way.

Welcome to the newbies...

Thanks for the welcome, DelightedButterfly! Still waiting to know, no sign of AF, according to my average cycle length after calculating the cycle lengths since Jan it says my AF is due in 3 days. But I'm very irregular anyway. I've got very thick creamy CM which is unusual because I am usually clear or dry before AF. I don't know what else to say. I'm holding off HPT until I officially miss AF. I should have an answer by the weekend!

I think you still have reason to hold on to hope!  Your temp is overall higher than its been -- these cross-hairs could finally be the real thing.  And I see why you aren't thrilled with the timing but you still could have caught it!

Tara - I don't see anything, but that is a neat site.  Some people are voting that yes, they see something!  Maybe I just have a lousy screen.

Good morning everyone.. Still no sign of AF the husband (what's the abbreviation for that again?) is absolutely convinced that we are pregnant, so a BFN or AF would be pretty upsetting.. I guess I'm not 100% sure on when I ovulated because I went from IUD (had zero AF visits while on iud) removal to pills for 10 days and in the first 6 days of taking the pill is when I started bleeding (I'm assuming that was AF??) and lasted only 2-3 days.. That was 8/3 to 8/5.

I wish I could offer advice to all of you and what you're going through, but truth is I'm learning so much still (at 30!! LOL) I really really hope that all of you get your BFP very very soon!!!

Hi girls,

 

Just a big, self-pity party today.

 

Wondering if I am getting sick as well. So tired I could cry. And last night, I was brushing my teeth and stuff, getting ready for bed and suddenly I came over all funny. My cheeks came over all warm, and I felt not exactly dizzy, but really faint and heavy. My heart was pounding all funny. I stayed up for awhile I couldn't sleep and the weird heart pounding thing remained. Still here this morning somewhat as well. What is up with that? Maybe I'm dehydrated or having an anxiety attack or something. I can't even take that as a good sign of any kind cause I feel so poorly with it.

 

One thing I know is I am not pregnant. Took another OSOM test today and while I could still see a faint shadowy line there, I don't see any more than my previous tests so am not going to post a pic. At 9dpo today, I just know a line would show up by now if it was going to be positive with these famously sensitive tests. So my guess is that they always just have some kind of very faint grey line. Bummer. And I want to cry about that as well.

 

It was nice hoping that i might be pregnant so easily but I was fooling myself, really. It took us 22 months for gods sake to conceive our last baby. And I'm even older now, nearly 38 and we have had MFI problems along the way. So we were lucky to get DS and baby girl here who is 17 months. And there is no way we are getting to do any ART treatments; DH is against it. I am more apt to go it naturally as well.  Plus no way can we afford it. And if it works it's meant to be, and if not, well-- But I don't want AF to come *whine* I just wanna be pregnant one last time with one last take home baby and -argh! That is so not happening.

 

Sorry for coming across all moping and whining, girls, but I'm feeling it. We haven't had that many chances this time around, just the 3rd month there was a possibility. But timing was really good this month and for some reason I just forgot about the endless months of failure before we got DD on my lap here. For a sec, it was like, why not? But now when faced with these dumb tests which are staring back at me with, let's face it, BFNs really, that whole cycle of getting so hopeful and then letdown, over and over comes rushing back, and I think-- of course. What was I thinking? It's probably next to impossible for us to conceive again. I must be crazy.

Welcome berrypavlova! The bolding is just so I know where to put you in the first post. I can see from your post you are Waiting to O :) I'm usually pretty good at finding where people are but bolding helps me pick it out! I hope your stay with us is short and sweet, before you move onto a DDC! I think this is the only place I say that!!!!!

Does anyone know if it's possible to have implantation bleeding so soon?!

 

I think with TTC that ANYTHING is possible ;)

It's pretty much just as reliable as condoms *under NORMAL use* and it's success rate goes up each year of practice you have at it! It worked perfectly for us. The two times we got pregnant while using it, well we had a miscommunication or were feeling lucky ;) Which is what's frustrating me now. We get pregnant so easily when we don't want to be. And it takes us time and effort when we *do* want to be!

Can't wait to hear how it's goes!

The difference was 0.3 of a degree which seems a lot to me in the space of a couple of minutes? So now I don't know which temp to record and wonder if my thermometer is broken...anyone else try taking two temps? And this days temp will affect when my chart says I O'd.

Mine change when I take two temps. And by quite a bit too. However when I take two temps at two different wake up times the same day (ie 4am and then again at 7am) it's usually the same....

I'm not understanding this! this was my response from my Doctor re: my current situation. I'm sure if one of you put it in a different way for me ill feel super silly after, but whatever... Maybe I've got pregnancy brain ;p So would that then mean that we could've conceived way after ovulation?? I absolutely hate that I'm not comprehending this.. Someone put a dunce cap on my head!

I can't make heads or tails of it either :(

I think they are the most likely. The temps are closer to other months post O temps. I was having a bunch of really creamy CF around that time too but I just thought maybe AF was coming ;)

I'm sorry you aren't feeling well! I haven't seen any lines yet on anything. But mama you are only 9DPO, you could still be implanting at the moment. Early sensitive test or not it's still not the end. Give yourself a few days and then test again :)

It's my baby's first day of Kindergarten! And a full day at that. My house is empty and quiet... A baby would be perfect please!!!!!

Hi all x

I'm now ●WAITING TO KNOW● sorry cant do bold on phone.

Any one else get an achey cervix on their day of O?

Beginning to wonder what other circus tricks my delightfully deranged body has in store????

Got everything crossed for a successful month BFP's all round please xxx
post #71 of 453
Delighted-Right now we are TTC but I guess if everything goes as planned it will be 2WW after tomorrow or Friday! smile.gif Really hoping it happens this month! I have got to work on keeping my stress level down though!

On another note, I was just surprised with a raise at work today! I wish it could take away some of the stress from my job but unfortunately money won't fix that problem. Still a nice surprise though!

Thanks so much for the kind thoughts!
post #72 of 453

delighted butterfly- thanks for the vote of confidence. I do appreciate it. :love

 

So just when I was completely 100% hopeless, turns out i got a line after the time limit on this morning's test. What do you know? It probably doesn't mean anything and just my luck to get that now. But it was the nicest clearest line that's showed on these tests yet, before or after the time limit. And I've taken, er- 21 Bolt.gif of these bad boys since I got the box!  I could link you a pic, but tho it shows well in my camera, it doesn't show as well once i uploaded it. Darn. Don't know if it's worth that or not.  Anyway, trying not to latch on to hope here and it's hard. the mind grasps at any straws. I remember that at peestickparadise.com  the lady talks about these OSOM tests and that sometimes a line after the time limit is an early precursor to a bfp! it worked for her. So definitely maybe not going to test again so I can hang onto a shiny sliver of hope for a few days.

 

Temps have been high but (did I already say this?) going down the last couple days. :( The only symptoms I've had have been twinges and  pains in hips and ovary area ever since O day, low back pain, and bleeding gums.  Ok and tired, but I'm tired every 2ww. Probably rising progesterone that's done that. Other than that the feeling that i might be pg and any other 'pregnancy'-esque signs disappeared yesterday.

post #73 of 453

Tara2 - Sounds promising!  I'll keep my fingers crossed for you.

 

louloudeer - Welcome and congrats on your raise!

 

delightedbutterfly - I still hold out hope for you!  How was your daughter's first day of kindergarten?  Having an empty house must be bittersweet!

 

Winter2013 - I get temp differences too, usually from taking my temp on different sides of my tongue.  I usually take the higher temp because while there are things that can artificially lower my temp (air conditioning, mouth open, etc), I don't know of anything that can artificially raise my temp other than a really warm room (which I don't have).

 

marcyse - Hope your appointment went well and you have a plan that works for you.

 

AFM...I'm 10 DPO today with not a single pregnancy symptom.  My temps are still up, but I spotted for a few hours today.  Never had spotting with my previous two pregnancies, only when AF is on her way.  I kinda feel like throwing in the towel on TTC at this point.  I just can't fathom a Summer baby in Arizona.  gloomy.gif

post #74 of 453

Tara2 - my heart is with you, BFNs just suck, period. Praying you wake feeling well rested!

 

delightedbutterfly - Thanks for the welcome! I hope I'm here a short while too, it would be so much more fun to chat with you all on a DDC board!

It was! She did so well! She doesn't like to talk to new people or do anything in new situations and I was worried that the first few days could be rough on the teacher. We've made some progress over the past 6 months but it was still bad at times. I went in, helped her get ready and find everything. Did the parenting reading and then she was clinging to me, but she has a friend in her class that took her hand and hung out with her. I snuck out and when I came to pick her up she was right at the front of the line happy and waving! She started talking like she owned Kindy and then went and played on the playground. I was shocked but oh so happy! Her teacher even said that she said her name in front of the whole class! And she can't wait to go back tomorrow because she's the special helper! But I felt lost and excited all at once! And the time FLEW by. By the time I'd made a couple phone calls and some stuff on here it was less than two hours until I had to pick her up again!

I'm sorry about the summer thing greensad.gif is it having a baby in summer or being pregnant? Any way you can start again in Dec? I thought I didn't want another summer baby... And I don't really. But I realized this summer with the kids birthdays that the planning aspect of parties was going to be a whole lot easier! No snow on the ground or crazy cold temp... So we'll probably just keep TTC through Oct/Nov anyways. You know if this cycle ever ends!

I can not wait to join a DDC! Another person on FB just announced not only her pregnancy but also the sex! She's notorious for keeping her pregnancies off FB though and just showing up to see you fully pregnant!

My mouth started to feel a bit pouty. I keep trying to remind myself that it's just more time to cross some other stuff off my todo lists!

Hey all x

my bbt is soaring this month 2dpo and its jumped by .5c, usually only .3c at this point. Trying not to get my hopes up but fingers and eyes crossed xxx
post #77 of 453

Hi all I am confused with my chart! My temps don't seem to be giving a clear indication of which day I ovulated or even if I ovulated at all, so I'm a bit concerned by that. I hope I did ovulate, but I know a positive O test doesn't mean you will for sure Ovulate, it depends on a consistent temp rise afterwards. A positive sign is I had O cramps and I have got a temp rise, but it isn't as big of one as I usually get....but my chart has still given me crosshairs and said I did O...so maybe I shouldn't worry? If I did O ... then I am 3DPO according to my chart. So the long TWW has begun :shy

 

Delighted are we around the same dpo? And Dianna you are only one day behind me :) yay for cycle buddies! 

 

Delighted such bitter sweet times watching kids getting more independent like on the first days of school, I'm so glad your dd enjoyed it and is excited to go again! I also do the same thing when AF arrives try to think it is giving me more time to get things done on my to do list...but I think if I was pregnant I would be more motivated to do them also! lol

 

Just got to wait to test now, wonder how long I will make it this time before giving in and testing early :nut

 

Tara any line sounds good to me, good luck! And 9dpo is still way early as they say implantation usually occurs at 7-14dpo... so you might not have even implanted yet, fingers crossed for you.

post #78 of 453

Hey ladies! It's been a few days and I've been crazy busy so I'm playing catch up. Hubs and I are really excited about this cycle. I feel optimistic but more importantly I'm glad AF finally showed up! According to my apps, I should O sometime between today and Sunday but on another app it says the week after that. I'm not going to risk it so we are going to DTD every other night :wink

 

In the meantime, I am back to working out. I'm doing light stuff (walking, biking, some moderate strength work). My little guy has had a cold all week that he is finally starting to get over so he's better  by the time of our Mother-Son date night tomorrow (we're going to dinner at a restaurant).

post #79 of 453
I'm new here. TTC after being on Depo. It has been almost 21 months since my last shot and I'm still not regular. Getting a bit discouraged but trying avoid going completely bonkers waiting. Any suggestions?
post #80 of 453
Naturallymo-have fun on your date tonight! wink1.gif

Winter and dianna-Good luck!!!

I'm think today is O day! I had Peak readings with CBE advanced digital twice yesterday! I didn't test this morning.....my DH Won't be home until tonight so I'm hoping it's not too late to try one more time! I wish I would have tested before I came to work though. I really can't temp because I toss and turn during the night so much and I'm also like a heater when I sleep. Lol

Question....now that I am very sure I have pinpointed ovulation (Today is CD 12 and I have a 26/27 day cycle based on 8 months of keeping track) do any of you ever feel bloated the day of ovulation? It's not something I ever noticed before, mainly because I never knew the exact day. But I did a little Internet research and it seems like it can be a symptom. Unfortunately this is a symptom I normally get with AF. So I guess for me it kind of makes sense.

Just thought I would check and see! I also felt a little twinge earlier in my lower left abdomen. smile.gifsmile.gifsmile.gif hopefully either BD On CD10 and 11 worked or it will work tonight or tomorrow!!! So anxious....this 2WW is going to be torture!
