2ww end of November testers??? - Page 6

post #101 of 350

Testing on the 19th

I am not charting this month - just seeing how things work out. I figure I o'ed on the 4th or 5th, which would put me at 10dpo right now. Of course, I was out of town (without DH) until the evening of the 4th, but we bd'ed on the 4th, 5th and 6th before running out of steam and letting life get in the way.

DH works second shift and it's really amazing how TIRING trying to fit sex into our lives has been lately. For the past few cycles, we have been bd'ing in the mornings, with me waking him up when I get up for work. This month, I had him wake me up at night when he gets home. I think it worked a little better except that after 3 nights, he said he was too tired of waking me up (which is not always an easy feat). So, hopefully 3 times was enough.

I wish I knew. I didn't temp this month and my OPKs were wierd. Last month I had a positive OPK on CD 14. This month I used OPKs on CD 13-CD18 and I never got a positive. I wonder if the timing was off to get a positive . I read on peeonastick.com that you can miss a positive on an OPK by testing once a day. You would think I would have had a BFP by now if I did O then. Maybe I O'd later than CD 18. That is very possible for me. With my other 3 pregnancies I O'd late. I always had a very faint pink line which from reading info on various threads I saw that the line has to be just as dark as the control. We didn't BD much after CD 18 (at least I didn't record it as regularly) because I thought we had it covered. Who knows. : I think I am over-analyzing my calender. No AF though so maybe it will work out. I am going to POAS in the morning. Are you POAS too?

By the way I typed all of this out and then I accidently hit a key and it all disapeared. ARGG!!


Good luck to everyone else this month. I can't wait to see some more positive tests!!

So, are you suppposed to poas more than once a day when using OPK's??? I was testing with FMU and then in the afternoon after at least 4 hours of holding it. I got a positive but it was only once, FMU, CD11, and it was faint again by the time I tested again that afternoon and it was negative the day before in the afternoon......Sheesh! Who knew catching that little egg would prove so complicated?!

Well I don't know about about testing more than once a day. On the website she did OPKs more than twice a day and she saw a positive later in the evening and by the next morning it was negative. She said she would have have missed the positive had she not tested in the evening. I did read that the FMU is not good though because you have the highest concentration of LH in the morning and you could get a false positive.

Taylor, that's awsome! My stomach upset was probably due to stress the past couple days. I feel pretty fine today

Happy fertile thoughts everyone

Remember and Tara - Everyone has LH in their system, but it just *increases* around O day. I always get faint lines (of varying faintness) with OPKS, but right before O I get a line that is darker than the control. The best time of day to test for OPK is actually around 2pm, or between 11am-8pm if you want a big range. But if you tested twice a day, say around 12pm & again around 4pm, you shouldn't miss anything!

I said I wasn't going to re-test until Friday, but if my temp stays up & AF doesn't start (I highly doubt it will tomorrow - no cramps yet), then I may test tomorrow also. Just depends.

I had read that FMU wasn't great for OPK's but I couldn't find a reason why. I guess I'll change my testing to afternoon and late afternoon!

Did I read somewhere that back pain can also be an early sign of pg? I have had what I'd say is more like a lower back cramp that goes hand in hand with my abdomen cramping. I am still 9 days away from potential AF so it seems early for that and I don't usually get a lot of cramping with that until it starts.
Any insight? (or am I obsessing yet some more! lol)

Can I wait with U guys???

Hello everyone. Im definatly not new to ttc, but I've been taking a break for a few months. I've had weird symptoms this cycle, so I decided to check back in with the site. ::: So if it's alright with everyone, I'd like to join u.

Im on CD30. I had spotting on CD 19, not sure if it was O or Implantation. I usually O on CD15-16. I use to be on Clomid and metformin, but for the last 6 months, i've taken nothing. I've lost 40lbs in the last six months due to a job change (hard work.)
I took a test today, and got a BFN!!!:

Well thats the scoop on me... hope u guys don't mind me joining your thread.

Welcome back. If you O'd on the 19th then you would only be 11 dpo. Still early, right? I have had a few BFNs this month too. They suck.

Well, Im not sure if it was O or implantation... Since i usually O on cd 15-16 I was assuming that it was implantation. Im not sure how many days past O it takes for spotting to occur tho. But if it was O then yeah im good and would naturally be a couple days late on AF this month. If it was O then I guess my antisipated AF day would be saturday or sunday. I guess we will see. Any way it goes, I hope that Nov. Is the month of all of us. Wouldn't the news make the perfect Christmas gift for everyone close to us.

Okkkk so this morning I get a HUGE temp drop (see here: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1c1e88) could anyone help me figure out why this migth have happend its below the coverline too is this bad? Any insights *sigh* I'm only at 4 dpo and today I had what felt like stabbing pains in my looooow back all morning. I think I might be obssessing again but those pains were pretty real!

So galls my DD and I have a yeast infection, it totally stinks! We started eating dairy again this Saturday, we had not had it since before easter. Ahhhh its not too bad, no real itching, YET:. Went and got a ton of probiotic, garlic and vinegar, hopefully we can kill it ASAP!:

I guess on the upside I have pregger symptoms, my bad gas started today at 6DPO. If I still have it tomorrow all day I actually may be convinced. : But I am still testing on the 19th and expecting a neg just so I don't get my hopes up. :

Hey everyone - I really appreciate all the support you've given me! Sorry I don't have time (yet) to respond individually as I'm trying to get ready to leave for work - don't worry, I *do* have internet access there.

I don't know what's going on. I got another BFN this morning, with FMU - not even the faintest line. But I still have high temps, and absolutely no sign of AF. I woke up this morning really feeling pregnant. I woke up early b/c I couldn't hold my pee any longer lol, so I took my temp about 45 min early, but I used the temp adjuster on FF. My nipples are still very sore & tingly for like the 5th or more day in a row, and that's NOT normal for me. No cramping still, no spotting, creamy cm, and my cervix is still HFC. :
post #118 of 350
I'm feeling a little bummed out this morning. Another BFN. If I am not pg then I wish AF would just show up already so I can try again. This is so frustrating. I feel your pain Luna. Maybe I need different tests.

I had a dream last night that I tested with a digital and it said "pregnant" I went home (Portland) and told my entire family. Then it changed and said "we're not sure" Arggg!! I slept terribly because I was dreaming and I knew I would be testing this am. This is the first morning I felt mad and like crying at the same time. Now what?

You know what? I did some "compare your chart" things on FF, and I found at least two charts similar to mine that didn't get BFPs until 20dpo :, yet they had BFNs before that, so that gives us both hope!

Here's my chart overlayed with one of them (mine is the green).
post #120 of 350
Temps still up!!!!! So I'm either 6 DPO or 9 DPO. FF changed my O date so I'm not sure where I am at. All I know is I definetly O'd based on my temp shift and it's starting to look triphasic:
