Ok so I got a top of the page post earlier today and now one here too. Please tell me it's lucky. Today is a bad day for me for obsessing. I need to get away from the computer because it makes it worse I think. I was gonna hold out until Monday which is 16DPO and my AF due day to test but I am wondering if I could just test tomorrow and get a BFP. I know I should just wait. ARGH....the obsessing and agonizing begins.:

AND THE DIGITAL SAYS...... Thank you all for all of the well wishes!

I ran home at lunch and took an E.P.T Certainty Digital test and it said Pregnant. So, between the $tree and the EPT, I'm guessing this is for real. I need lots of sticky vibes. Here's the ordeal, briefly if you are interested:

Conceived #1 and had m/c at 7 weeks, conceived #2 and started bleeding immediately, said I was probably m/c again. Had levels checked and not enough Progesterone to sustain a pregnancy. Put on progesterone suppositories for 14 weeks. Bled for 14 weeks. Found out I have a Bicornuate Uterus (heart shaped) which may be why I m/c the first. Has high risk for m/c, second trimester loss or preterm delivery (28-32 weeks). Spent the entire pregnancy at the perinatology (high-risk) drs. having weekly sonos and preterm labor tests (Ffn's). Throughout pregnancy, I was told DD had SO MANY things wrong, placenta previa, polyhydramnios, ventricular septal defect (heart), ecogenic intracardiac focus (heart), possible neurological problems, Down Syndrome, etc, etc. I refused the amnio. At 40w3d I sent myself to the hospital because as I had told the drs., the baby was no longer moving and I was having some type of contractions. Good Thing. She was ripped from me during an emergency ceserean for which I was not present because an error was made during my spinal so they put me on a ventilator and intubated (sp?) me and I awoke hours later. Her placenta was completely calcified, was no longer functioning and she had no oxygen. I was correct, she wasn't moving. She was born a healthy baby girl, don't want to think about if I had not gone in that day. Anyway, I have a VERY HIGH RISK of not carrying this pregnancy, so lots of : and would be much appreciated.

Well, off to join the May DDC. I hope to See All Of You There! I don't want to see anyone joining the 6+ club!
to all!

Oh, and can I just add, I am now a true believer in the whole Evening Primrose Oil, Grapefruit Juice, Green Tea, Robitussin thing. One cycle of that and I couldn't stop the EWCM! And look what happened!

Congratulations, TryingAgain!

OK. I guess I will be trying out the evening primrose oil and all. CD2 here and we get paid on Friday so I hope that will be early enough to start my regimen to make a difference in the EWCM. OF course, we we get preggo this month, I might have two kids with the same b-day......

evening primrose oil, or EPO, helps a lot with cervical mucus/fluid. I took it a bunch when ttc dd, and it made a world of difference. Start taking it when af arrives, or shortly thereafter. And take it until O is confirmed. I think I was taking anywhere from 500-2000 mg/day

I plan on taking Mucinex this cycle. Is it ok to double up with evening primrose oil?
