I had big sparatic periods with my first one. We even got pregnant and didn't know it because of them. Keep trying and good luck!!

Best wishes to everyone else here
YEAH!! That give me suucchhh hope!!

I am CD44...my cycles are normally around 33 days. I am getting a BFN for way too long, major cramping..bigger than normal. I don't normally cramp much at all, but for 2 days it's been on and off bbiigg cramps, both sides. No other signs of AF.

Of course now I am out of the dollar store tests and the 'walmart' EPT's. I leave to go out of town Sunday and won't have time between now and then to get any tests. So I guess it will be next week before I get another chance to check. I just really wanted to share the good news with the group I will be with Sun, Mon and Tues...but c'este la vive.

any ideas ladies???

Brooke - good to see you back. . I kwym about having so little control over the whole thing. THat is the hardest part for me too (well, other than not actually expecting a baby, but you kwim). I too am o'ing regularly but now fertile CF in sight and a ds who is nursing more and more everyday. After concieving ds in the first cycle and getting pg by accident several years earlier while using protection (baby didn't carry to term) I figured getting pg for me was a "piece of cake". The wait sure is hard.

I also understand what you mean about being elated for every BFP on this thread but not feeling overjoyed for others in your life with BFP's. I feel the same way.

Because I was so confident we'd get pg right away we made preparations in anticipation of a winter/spring baby. We bought a bigger house, bought a van (got a deal we couldn't pass up otherwise we would have waited till winter), and quit my job/school (figuring I might as well stay home with ds while pg). I know that sounds ridiculous, but all of the women in my family seem to get pg just by looking at them - myself included the other two times - so I just wanted to be ready. Now it all seems so empty. I feel so empty. Sorry, this is turning into my own personal vent now and I feel silly complaining so much when there are women here who have been toughing it out far longer than me. It's only been 4 months for me. Just had to get it out, though.

Gotta think positive, though . . . .so I guess I better buck up

yeah!! Conagratulations!! : : : :

Brooke I could have written your rant myself. The only consolation that I can come up with is to remember that things happen for a reason and you often do not know the reason until much later. So I suppose the universe wants my kids farther apart than I did! I will be happy if I can just get pg again someday. I kwym about obsessing about temping. I get so hung up on my temps and have such strong emotions attached to something that I have no control over.

Quirkylayne : for o

adtake : for whenever you can test again. Any chance you could sneak away and test while you are on your trip? Or maybe waiting the extra days will be enough time for a good luck!

amy It would be a hard wait with all those preparations! I am sure you are enjoying this time with ds while you have lots of energy and not all tired from being pg.
UG - This is the hardest thing to wait!! It will be just crazy to get that bfp one day and have everything change so quickly! Just let go all of this craziness and wrap up this chapter of life. I can't wait!!

Congrats Anthasam! : : :


Hi everyone Still working on reading the pages I missed. I'm in the TWW. I'm thinking I O'd on Sat or Sun (cd31 or 32). So that would put me at 4 or 5dpo. Not sure if we timed it right though. I'm going to try to hold out til the
15th at least to test.
post #145 of 610
I feel gyped. I went out and bought a Target test incase my negatives were just the tests I was taking. POAS and there was an instant positive. But no control line. The longer it sat there, the positive went away. 15dpo, my chart is still triphasic, still high temps, and no positive.
post #146 of 610
ouch, that stinks about the disappearing positive! ugh ugh ugh!

sorry to hear it.

Whoops, forgot to say CONGRATS ANTHSAM in my last message - so exciting!!! :

Tiffani - dissapearing positive? - that would be even worse than a BFN - nothin' like getting a gal's hopes up. : that there is still a BFP out there for you this cycle.

Amy, I feel just the same way as you do. We've also been trying for only 4 cycles, but I got pregnant with DD in our first cycle trying when we had sex only one time. So DH thinks he has "super sperm" and I figured that I inherited my grandmother's baby-making and baby-birthing constitution (she had 8, all born at home). Last month when we really timed the BDing right and I had such a good feeling about the cycle I was really crushed when AF arrived. So I totally know where you're coming from.

Here's the link to my chart. Frankly I think I ovulated two days ago, yet my cervical fluid just never dries up hardly. I thought I ovulated earlier but I'm guessing I didn't. Drives me nuts.
I don't think you've ovulated yet this cycle. I looked at your first cycle, and you clearly ovulated - but because your CM didin't dry up, it didn't give you an ovulation date. Go into preferences and change the calculation to temperature only for cycle 1... that should give you an O date and a coverline. If your temp jumps again despite no CM dry up again this cycle, change the calc for this cycle to temps only as well. I hope that helps you some, mama! Most of the other nursing mamas have no CM to speak of. Like you, I have a ton that never seems to go away! I chart with ovusoft, too, link in my siggy!

I don't remember, but I have a feeling that it happened to me as well and maybe I didn't connect the dots.... are you also taking it with a B complex? I think I am going to start taking mine again. I think I may take mine with dinner or something to spread it out a little. I am supposed to take 6 prenatals a day and fish oil as well... that is a lot of pills! How much are you taking, btw?

Thanks, Amy... it is so nice to be around other mamas who know what you are going through. We conceived on cycle #3 with DS, and only DTD twice the entire cycle cause I'd been away... so here I thought it would be easy, too. It's stupid, because so many women have an "oops" pregnancy while BFing and aren't happy about it at first, but oh well. I guess I just have to wait and work on my patience. We bought some more gender neutral baby clothes yesterday (just some onesies) as we don't plan to find out what this next baby will be. It was kind of therapeutic... but made me long to be pregnant again so bad. I could spend my entire life being pregnant, though, so.... :

Mama, I am so sorry. Your chart looks so incredible, I am so confused. Though, the fact that it has only just gone triphasic in the past few days makes me wonder if there is just not enough hcg yet... I have a couple of friends who cannot get a BFP before 16-18 dpo, and a couple who just couldn't get a at all. If this continues and AF doesn't come, please go get a blood test done. : :

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! This no temping thing is driving me batty... I don't know if I've O'ed yet and I did sneak a temp this morning that would suggest I haven't. But I have abundant EWCM that is SO lube feeling... I'm sick of having sex !

I just about spit out my water when I read this . Glad someone else feels like this sometimes. I look at all these charts with constant bd'ing and think - SERIOUSLY? Is that what they do even when they aren't ttc? wowza.
post #154 of 610
Bella Catalina, how did you do that with the multiple quotes in the same post? I haven't yet found a good way to have an idea who's talking to who... I liked how your post read...

(Not sure if I can ask that in this forum???)

See the button next to "quote"? The one with the + sign on it? You click that for each post you want to quote.

post #157 of 610
Congrats to all the mamas with BFP's!! I figure from now until Wed. is my most fertile time...sure do hope I have good news in a couple weeks, this is getting OLD! *sigh*
post #158 of 610
UGH Anybody wanna vote me pregnant?! lol 16dpo, another huge temp jump, another BFN. I have to request a blood test tomorrow if everything is still coming up negative so that I know for sure before my chicken pox shot.

You truly don't want to make that mistake...I got bit by a dog right in the stomach while I was just a few weeks preggers (was not "trying" but was not using anything to prevent it either: so I did not know I was preggers). I ended up getting a tetus shot, luckily my little DD does not have any outward signs that the shot harmed her but I still feel like such a horrible mom for even letting it happen. : I was mainstream before my DD was born so I did not even think to question Vaxing in general. Now I know better (on many fronts). :
post #160 of 610
Wow, it's good that your DD was okay. Yeah, I definitely won't get it without knowing for sure. I don't even know if I want to get the blood test because I think without a definite answer as to why I haven't started yet, I won't feel comfortable whether the blood test is negative or not. I think I may only go ahead with the shot if AF finds me between now and then.
