Well BFN friday. lol I snuck a test :) Couldn't stand it. Woke up this morning and had a small smear of pink on TP. Have a yucky taste in my mouth I can't seem to get rid of. Super light headed and off and on nausea. Hope this is a good thing and my body isn;t teasing me right before AF!!! ERRRR

Cupcake, Rosie and LadyCraig-Still hoping for BFP's for us!!
Zeetah-Sorry AF found you this month! But I'm almost certain I will be right here with you next month!
AFM-Today is 10 DPO and I started the day with some brown discharge around 6am. Sorry if TMI but it was a decent amount however, it wasn't enough for one panty liner. I checked again at 8am, changed panty liners to see if it would continue and it has since stopped (it's 11:45 here now ). I've had some pretty strong pressure on my right side which has subsided now too. I'm hoping it's implantation. But trying not to get my hopes up. Since we have been TTC for the last three cycles, I have had brown spotting off and on for at least 3 days leading up to AF. This ONLY started since we have been TTC. Anyone experienced this before? I am almost positive I had a chemical pregnancy the first month when we weren't TTC. That would have been the first week of August and that's when the spotting for a few days before my period started. I definitely felt pregnant for two days at about 9 DPO and the morning off 10 DPO I had a very faint positive pregnancy test that same cycle. Then all negatives and I didn't have that feeling anymore.
I didn't POAS this morning because other than some slightly sore BBS and blue veins on them, I haven't really "felt" it. Maybe I'm trying not to "feel" anything, so I don't get my hopes up.....I don't know. :S Anyway, if anyone else has experienced anything like this kind of spotting, I would appreciate any feedback! You girls are awesome!
Good luck and baby dust!post #85 of 1029/23/13 at 12:02pmRainbow-Just saw your message....do you have any cramping or pressure with your spotting? And what day are you expecting AF to show up? AF is due for me on Friday......just though I would ask because I'm going through the same thing.......so confusing. I haven't been pregnant in 13 years! So this is really blowing my mind! Good luck to you!!! And I completely understand about not testing! Unless something changes drastically in the next four days I'm not going to. I'm sure AF will show up Friday.......post #86 of 1029/23/13 at 6:16pmpost #87 of 1029/23/13 at 9:00pmQuote:
This is exactly what I've been dealing with for the past few months, and it started after an 11 week mc, then I had a chemical pregnancy.Now I just keep having this weird preperiod bleeding and BFNs. It only happens while TTC though.

Rainbow-I mentioned this to my doctor in late August and she said it was nothing to worry about. It actually has almost completely stopped today but the last two cycles it was enough to have to change a liner once a day until my actually period started. I'm wondering if I need to go back and make an appointment?post #90 of 1029/24/13 at 7:37am
I am giving it a few more months to see what happenes. AF started today, so I am glad I didn't bother with a test. I have other children, so I am not sure how far I want to go down the path with assisted fertility if it doesn't happen for us at this point. This is nearing a year, but there have been two losses this year as well, so I know I can get pregnant-just not as easily as when 35 wasn't looming in a couple months.post #91 of 1029/24/13 at 2:00pmRainbow-I'm so sorry AF found you! AFM-Spotting started yesterday, continuing today. I completely understand about not wasting a test. I'm 33 BTW. My daughter will be 13 on Halloween! So it's been 13 years since I was pregnant! She had serious health issues when she was born and I was in no place to be having another child. I have hope for both of us. I have been reading a lot about women with the same problem. Of course it's the internet so there's a lot of self-diagnosis out there but this is what I've found so far.
I think that for some women, it is absolutely nothing and they go on to have normal pregnancies even with the consistent brown CM prior to AF or eventual pregnancy. Some seem to believe that it's low progesterone. When associated with several cramps and/or pain it could be endometriosis, fibroids or an ectopic pregnancy. So that's all I've got. I actually have orders to have my progesterone checked and just haven't had time to do it. Well, now I'm making time. Seems like that could be the first step.
Good luck and baby dust to us all!!post #92 of 1029/24/13 at 8:43pm
AFM: I'm 9 or 10 dpo and have no symptoms other than feeling different than normal, still some small twinges, mostly on right side but very random and only lasting seconds at a time, moodiness/irritability and I just feel down and out and all these BFNs (including today's using FMU) are NOT helping. The only hope I have is:
Of pregnant women (on one website) - here are the rates at which BFP was found:
I stopped writing down numbers at that point. So there's still hope for me - although minimal...
After scouring through past posts from our Sep BFP's, it looks like the following were found (although I could be wrong - it's been a long day and I was trying to do this quickly):
Winter BFP at 11dpo
Phunky found her BFP at ?, but she said she had BFN 2 weeks after ovulation, so I'm just going to assume 14dpo
Jesse had BFN at 11 and 12dpo but ended up with BFP later in day on 12dpo
Teajunkie found her BFP at 11dpo
MrsRoss found her BFP at 12 or 9dpo?? Not sure which one - I'm assuming 12
RoseMom was 10 days late before her BFP (and had a BFN earlier that day)
Dianna found her BFP at 9dpo (overachiever - hehehe)
Eazar found her BFP at 14dpo with a BFN earlier that day
So, using this tiny sample of BFPs, and excluding RoseMom since I wasn't sure of her dpo, the average would be 11.85dpo before detecting BFP. And if I remove MrsRoss since I assumed 12, that still leaves the average at around 11.5.
Hope all this info helps some others. It makes me feel like there's still hope, but if I don't get BFP by 12dpo, I'm counting myself out. Although I did look back to see how my last pregnancy went. The only thing about that is that it was ectopic, so not sure how that correlates to this. But that month I got a BFN on CD31 and BFP on CD34. I'm regular as in 28-31 days ALWAYS, and assuming ov happens 14 days prior, that would have me at BFN on 17dpo and BFP on 20dpo.
Ok, I've analyzed all I can for tonight. My DH thinks I'm losing my mind! I have notes on papers in our office and am constantly checking this site! I'm turning into a mad woman!!post #93 of 1029/25/13 at 6:11am
Well my newest development in symptoms is low blood sugar and back pain. THe past few days my sugar has been low and making me feel awful. and last night the low back pain started, a constant ache but worse when I lay down. No sign of AF and its due Saturday. Cervix is still high, soft and closed TIGHT! lol I am not getting any more usual PMS symptoms and I usualy break out right before AF and my face is spectacular!! My boobs hurt I can't sleep on stomach but that is kind of normal for me right before AF. Hoping this sticks and AF stays away!!!!post #94 of 1029/26/13 at 9:19ampost #95 of 1029/26/13 at 9:56amHey girls! Been trying to keep busy during the 2WW. How are all of you?
AFM- AF should unfortunately show up tomorrow..... no symptoms at all. I would be absolutely shocked to get a BFP at this point. Not even thinking about wasting a test! So I think I have determined that my main problem is stress! I don't think there is any way I could possibly conceive right now unless I find another job or dramatically reduce my stress. For the next few weeks I am going to focus all my energy into the basics; eating healthier, exercise, and yoga everyday! We'll see how that works! Congrats to all those wonderful BFP's! Can't wait to join you!
Good luck and baby dust!post #96 of 1029/26/13 at 9:59am
bummer rosie!! Hope next month is your month!!! I stil have a few more days before AF shows and I take a test. I'm still holdin gout hope!! lol I keep having lower back pain and the acne I get right before period hasn't showed up! my face is perfect which is usually NEVER!! I am still having some cm too. I'm confused and hope my body isn't playing tricks and i'm not reading too much into it!!post #97 of 1029/26/13 at 10:28amI'm still holding onto a pinch of hope, but with sensitive hpt's and all BFN's, I've all but given up. I'm always 28-31 days and that means AF will be here today, tomorrow, Sat or Sun. I just think if I were preg, I would have seen that elusive BFP by now...still gonna stalk this thread til she shows up, but I feel I should start accepting the inevitable now. Maybe then I won't be as upset when she does show. It was so much easier when when we weren't trying at all and just threw caution to the wind. But now that I want another baby it will be impossible for me to NOT pay attention to what's going on! Part of me wishes I had never decided to want one more!post #98 of 1029/26/13 at 12:12pm
How often is too often to test? Is two days in a row a little overboard? I'm either 9-10 DPO, found out at 10 DPO with DS, and had a BFN yesterday (like I totally expected). I'm using digital tests because squinting is just too much stress for me but at like $18 for a 5 pack, its going to add up if I'm testing constantly!post #99 of 1029/26/13 at 12:56pmI think testing every day isn't overboard...but it does add up if you're using digital or name brand. I decided if I'm gonna test every day, I'm just using the cheapos from Walmart. First Signal is the brand and they are only $.88 each, but they're not even POAS kind...they are cassette type where you pee in a cup, then drop 3 drops of urine onto the test using this syringe thing. Not very convenient, but super cheap and I've heard they are accurate and sensitive. If I had better will power is just wait to be late and then test, but I have zero patience!!post #100 of 1029/26/13 at 1:43pm
I've used those before but when I ran into Walmart to buy them, they didn't carry that kind. Its hit and miss. I decided that if I was going to be spending a few dollars per test that I might as well not play the squinting game and just get a digital. I got a light but definitely visible line with FMU on a FRER at 10 DPO with DS and a very quick "pregnant" on a digital test that afternoon.
I also think the above statistics are incorrect. The blastocyst can't implant until it "hatches", which doesn't happen until 5 days after fertilization. At 6 days, the blastocyst makes contact with the uterine lining (apposition, not implantation). I don't think there is any way for 20% of women to actually have sufficient hCG to test positive only a day after apposition. Since many tests only go down to 20 mui, I don't even think they'd have enough in their blood to register a positive if their urine levels were as high as their serum level (which they aren't). They may not even have the 6.5 mui I've heard some FRER tests have been able to detect. I think if 20% of women say they got their positive at 7 DPO that most of them either they miscalculated their date of ovulation or they were squinting at evaporation lines and ended up with a true positive later on by chance.
