I don't think men care...atleast my DH. If it was up to him, I'd be on call 24/7 ha ha.

You could get some more...I've never had luck with them though myself...I must miss it!
Hehehe. Well my DH hasn't complained, but sometimes I think he just wants to bum around and watch TV because it takes a lot of energy & stamina to DTD - especially for the guy.

Hmm I don't know what that dip is either, but it didn't go *below* the coverline, so... I guess you still might have a chance!

As for the OPKs, they work pretty well for me but I tend to get the faded lines (part is dark, part is lighter like it's fading away), but those are still considered positive if at least half of it is equal to or greater than the control line darkness.

I get those too. Although I haven't officially been TTC til this cycle I have been doing OPKs to track ovulation for the last 4 months. I always got the fadeout thing but this cycle I tested once in the morning, and it was fadeout, and then randomly did it again later, at about 6 at night and it was 2 shades darker then the control line. first true dark OPK i'd seen since I started using them (Target brand). by the time I tested again the next morning, it was fading out again.

Random story I know... but now I kinda want to see the dark one every month before I just say I ovulated.

eta- I think I'm at 8DPO and it's awful. I think this is the worst part of 2ww... SO close to being able to test but yet definitely time to imagine symptoms and for it to actually have credibility... i keep telling myself... 5 more days, 5 more days...

I'm at 7DPO right now and miserable. I've had sore boobs since 3dpo...which doesn't make any sense to me at all. I blame the Vitex. I normally have rather long LPs but last month it was only 11 days so I'm worried it's going to be even shorter this time. I'm making myself wait until next Wednesday to test since that would be CD 31 and that's about how long my cycles are/were before Vitex. My cervix is already low, soft, and neither open nor closed so we'll see if I make it that long. AGH.

What is your cervix supposed to do if you're pg compared to AF coming? I know it's high and soft during O but that's all I've ever paid attention to.

If you are pregnant then your cervix will eventually put itself into a high, firm and closed position. Different from when AF is coming, when it is typically low, firm and open.

Add me to the list! I'm 9DPO today and hoping to make it to 12 DPO (when AF is due) before testing. My temps look good so far, so I'm hopeful. Although we did not time our BDing very well at all. LOL!

How soon does it go into the high firm position? After implantation?

Interesting. Not very reassuring for me though! I'm low, soft, open today. Guess AF is probably on her way.

I'm cd 27 and 7-8 dpo (per cm and temps). I'm a little less optimistic after my temp drop this morning, I do have to remind myself that I temped after only about an hour of sleep and after my mom waking me up and asking me question. I also had cramping start after going trick-or-treating with my siblings, it could be my body not used to that kind of exercise. Hopefully my temps is back up tomorrow if not I'm sure AF will be waiting. :

I'm going to add myself to the 2WWers. Hi SunshineRachel! I am 3dpo and just beginning the wait. Hoping my luteal phase is longer than 10 days this time around. :
post #51 of 304
I tested today at 9DPO and got a BFN.
I need patience, I've been having issues with that lately.
I'm crampy today but my temps are still up.
My LP last 2 months was 8 days so I can get it through today AF-free I'll be happy.

Ahhh! I almost broke down this morning and tested! At 9 DPO I just knew it would negative so I resisted! LOL I really despise BFN's!

I have been feeling some sharp cramps for the past few days and I accidently rubbed my nipple last night and it hurt!

I hope I am not just imagining things!

MissWorld - I am 9dpo today and I so agree with you. In the early part of the 2ww I am very calm. At this point I am sitting around waiting for a BFP or AF. Luckily I have a 12 day lp so that cuts my wait by 2 days.

AnneCordelia - Thanks for the cervix info! I never knew this. You and I are cycle buddies and I usually have a 12day lp so we have a lot in common. I too am hoping to wait until Sunday to test but my patience isn't doing too well this morning.

finnegansmom - 9dpo is still early. Don't give up hope yet!

Haha!! Me too!!!! I finally feel better, almost normal, after 2 days of the flu and bbt is still going up this morning! My cervix is even up and firm again. YAY! If my temp is up again tomorrow then I may test, 10dpo.

Unfortunately I ran out of OPKs and didn't end up picking up anymore, but I'm pretty confident that I O'd yesterday, so I switched out my EPO for Flax Seed Oil for now. We BD'd again last night just to be safe. Not sure if we should tonight or not - I think both of us are kind of worn out.

Oh yeah I've only had one 2WW prior to this, but yes it's torture. I think the 1st week for me was worse than the last week, though. I am going to just assume that I'm not pregnant this time even though our chances are better b/c of tracking and timing. I want to ignore "symptoms", but I will still record them on my chart. Good luck!
post #56 of 304
I broke down and tested this morning-2 days earlier than I'd planned.

is it possible to get a bfn at 12dpo (cd25) and still be pg?
(I have a 25-27 day cycle)
Am I a masochist for trying to hold on to hope for this cycle?

I am making myself not test every morning even though today and tomorrow and the next day are too early for me. I'm only 8dpo right now but had some odd cramping for a while last night. My boobs are killing me and have been since 3dpo (anyone got any ideas on that one?) I'm working doubles this whole weekend since I live in a college town and its homecoming this weekend....hopefully I'll be making so much money that I'll forget I want to test early.

RE: the boobs thing, mine have been very slightly tender the last couple of days, and I am 1DPO, so that could just be the adjusting hormones mid-cycle.

I don't want to get your hopes up, but I had intense boob soreness as the first pregnancy symptom with DS. It could also be related to caffeine intake, I used to drink a ton of caffeinated tea before DS. I hope you get a BFP soon!

I started taking EPO this past cycle. So should I stop taking it now that I have already ovulated? I do already take a fish oil anyway.
