Here is some information I found doing a quick search on lubricants.

Good info, thanks.
I was responding more specifically to MommaGreenBean about spermicide in particular. Although they may not be "sperm friendly" most lubricants will be clearly marked as to whether or not they contain actual spermicide.

Be strong! Remind yourself that you could still get a negative this early and then you will still NOT know if you are pregs or not but seeing that bfn is a downer! Try to stay busy! All easier said than done, I know!

Sorry

Thanks for the info on lube It's not super necessary, but I think I'll go ahead and order the pre-seed and try it around O days. The pH thing is a good point.

On testing early... My theory is 'every neg could be a false neg until AF comes'

I just ordered the 3 pack. Early pregnancy tests was only .50 cheaper but I found a coupon for free shipping. PM me if you want/need it.

I was her doula. She got all the way to pushing and the MW could see his hair, but he just wouldn't squeeze under the pubic bone. Discovered in surgery he'd turned posterior while she was pushing. Little bugger. Anyway, she is really happy with the experience. She got soooo much further than she did with her first, and really...she got everything involved in a vag birth except the ring of fire.
Hi!! Nice to see you here! Thank you for the update on Megan. I'm so happy for her that she had a good experience!

Welcome! I think there are a several of us who took vitex and b6 to help with fertility.

I just got my 3rd PPAF and my cycle this time was 33 days, so it's back to normal. Before it was 49 and 578 () and normally I'm 30-35 days. No Vitex or anything, just folic acid. I'm not in a huge rush, but I'd love to be pregnant. The 'kids' would be almost exactly 2 years apart if I conceived this cycle. What fun!

Does anyone do the paid fertility friend? They're giving me a free trial right now, which is kind of fun. I use it just so I can remember my cycle days and possible O days, maybe a pen and paper would be more effective lol

Wow, you sound almost exactly like me! I'm 22, and we conceived the first two times SO easily! I thought for sure it would be easy again. Ughh. I use the free FF. Didn't think there was anything worth paying for with the VIP version... Anyway, I put you in 'waiting to O', let me know if you should be somewhere else.

This is cycle # 10 and it is just hard to make a huge effort every month and have it result in nothing - no bfp, not even any increased CM (which is my fertility issue since PPAF returned 2.5 years ago). DS is still nursing through the night and I don't have the energy or desire to night wean him. We tried a year ago and it worked for a while and then it just slowly started creeping back in. : What are you gonna do, right?
You seem to be handling being on cycle 10 very well. Hopefully "taking a break" will do it for you! I put you in 'waiting to O', but if you'd rather be in "waiting to be ready' just let me know.

I'll hold your hand! Just wait a few more days so that when you test you get that BFP! Of course.... if you have a stash of HPTs like I do... well... you might want to test I know how hard it is to resist! Stocking up on $store tests helps me get thru the 2ww without spending a ton.

Back away from the test! Slowly, back away.




Congrats Jen on catching that first egg. Happy healthy 9 months to you!

I am really excited. My dh is leaving tomorrow morning for a week, and I was certain I was going to ovulate right before he returned (and miss any opportunity this month). I am feeling O pain right now. I do not have any EWCM, but I am going to do the dtd tonight. Yay!

Woohoo! Congratulations JenMidwife!!

That's great news, BlissfullyLoving -- have fun

Congrats on the JenMidwife!!! vibes for you!!

Amy, thanks so much for your encouraging words... I'm not very positive some times, and that is when I stay away from the boards.

I am 9dpo and I tested this afternoon with a FRER and there does appear to be a super faint line. Don't get all excited, I am considering it a BFN for now... if my temp is still up in the AM I will test again with FMU. The line is probably just an evap. I don't think I will believe it until I see the word staring back at me from a digital

Meanwhile my cough is back and my lungs feel "wet" again... ugh I just want this to go away; it's not a pleasant feeling. I hate being sick. It so rarely happens but it does, it hits me like a ton of bricks :

Ooo, I hate those evap lines! Excited to know about your FMU test Hope you feel better.

Congrats to JenMidwife! Catching the first egg is way cool!

I'm going to order some preseed and pregnancy tests today, the cheap-o ones, as that seems to be one of my favorite things to do...

Tested yesterday and this morning, both BFNs. : I'm 13 DPO, so I'm still holding out hope. With DD I got a very faint BFP at 12 DPO, with shorter luteal phases.

Still having off-and-on nausea and have been gassier than usual . I don't FEEL pre-AF, but still no BFP. I guess it's still possible, but every morning when I see that single line I feel worse.

My BFF, an admitted POAS addict told me that people love FRER because it is one of the only tests that prides itself on NO evap lines. She had to convince me I was pregnant (by testing with a FRER) because there WAS a line. Here's

My luteal phase is usually about 15 days, so it would be due Thurs. Don't know how likely a BFP is at this point.

What did you test with? Also implantation can happen as late as 10dpo, right? So it could be possible with a longer LP that implantation happens later.
