post #21 of 227
Thought I was getting AF on Saturday night, but, NO. It was a cruel joke. I was out drinking with friends, wonder if the alcohol thinning my blood caused it? Weirdly, the next morning, instead of having a high temp it was really low, causing me to think AF was surely coming... not so.

Plus, since DH told practically everyone we know that we're TTC ( we keep getting asked how it's going. This is exactly what I was trying to avoid when I argued with him about it saying I didn't want anyone to know!

I know what you mean. My husband got back from a 15-month deployment to Iraq in December and everyone knows we were planning TTC when he got back, and it's all they want to know about. I guess it's nice to have everyone interested and rooting for us, but I wish no one knew so we could work on this privately.

Please move me to waiting to O. Thanks, and good luck Aly!

I need professional help!!!!!! So, I came to the professionals,

I am 15dpo (I always get af at 13dpo). I have the positive OPKs to show exactly when I Od (and I felt it... always do), but I don't temp. I have so many pregnancy symptoms (peeing all the time, nearly barfed brushing my tongue today, think my boobs are getting bigger, insomnia, etc). Yesterday I took a dollar store test & a FRER. The FRER was clearly negative. The $store had a VERY faint line after it dried. Today I took another FRER, negative. I have NO idea what is going on! HELP!!

Aly- Good Luck with your IUI! We are gearing up to try one this cycle too.

Please move me to waiting to O. Also, move Mamazee to taking a break and CourtneyATW to dec. pregnancies. Mamazee posted a few weeks ago about taking a break after all her chemicals and Courtney's chart shows a pos HPT back in december. Just trying to help clean up the list a bit...

I posted at the end of the last thread, I've been lurking and am kinda new to The One thread. Second cycle after a m/c and waiting to O. We were going to DTD the same days as we got pregnant last time, but are off a day, so we'll see.

Aly22681... Ooooh, I hope you have a nice batch of eggies ready to pop!!!

SoStinkinHappy... Thanks! Yeah, it would be my "just" reward!

Looks like you've usually dipped and spotted by now!! Lookin' good!!!!! Who's Toby Keith?

JuliaV... You're might be missing a possible symptom. The runny/stuffy nose and headaches can also be symptoms of pregnancy. We had a couple weeks here awhile back where a bunch of TTCers thought they had colds, it turned out they were ALL pregnant! I hope you caught the egg instead of a bug!!!

WoodlandFairyTale... I think alchohol usually leads to higher temps. Anyway, I hope your cycle does something soon! You must be going nuts.

Ctdoula... Hmmm, first, be sure to only use First Morning Urine when testing. Second, wait until Wednesday to test again. If it is still negative, test again in another 2 days. If you're still getting BFNs and no AF by next Monday, go in for a blood pregnancy test. I hope your Dollar Store test was a real BFP!!!

AAM... My temp today was almost exactly the same as yesterday. So, I'm saying I O'd on Saturday cd14. I'm pretty sure FF will agree. I hope those sperm were extra vigorous!!!!

Everybody think fertile thoughts!

UGH!! I just got back from the DR and for the first time since I started my fertility stuff, my eggs are not mature yet. I am on cd 13 today and they are really small I do have 3 of them though, 13mm, and 2 10mm. I have to go back on Thursday for another Ultrasound and hopefully they will be mature by then and we can do my IUI on Friday. I got a little discouraged today though, bc my dr had "THE TALK" with me. If i dont get pg in the next 3 months he is going to have to refer me to a infertility specialist (which on a side note my ins does not cover, so that should be fun) I know I still have 3 more months after this one, but I am really discouraged for some reason. Ugh, this just sucks! I hate TTC!

It's true, and it has been more in the evenings than the mornings which is sort of bizarre. It's sure my bbs are bigger and more veiny (I'm Italian so you can't see and veins usually) but I think that can also just be from PMS.

as for your spermies...DP calls them the Olympic Swimmers They can live a while in there with good fertile cm and the really strong ones can into the womb in under 2 minutes!!!

Here's a funny sperm quote:
"Now some of you may be surprised to learn that if a sperm were the size of a salmon it would be swimming its seven inch journey at five hundred miles per hour. If a sperm were the size of a whale, however, it would be traveling at fifteen thousand miles per hour or Mach 20." -Anderson, Laurie. "Mach 20."

I'm sorry Aly...: I'm sure that's frustrating for you, but what business does that doc have giving you talk with 3 tries to go?? As for those eggies...3 sounds good. They say it's the magic number!!!!

Juliav: Thanks, i guess the Dr is correct giving me the talk, he did try to encourage me by saying "but I'm sure it will happen before then" Currently I am on my 5th cycle of fertility meds so 3 more and that makes 8 cycles. Its probably a good idea to move on instead of beating a dead horse however I just got really discouraged!

Toby Keith is a country/western music artist. Still a little ooogied-out by that dream. It was so bizarre! And I am starting to get hopeful about this cycle - no spotting yet, usually the herald of AF-to-be. And no major temp dip either. AF is due tomorrow so we shall see.

juliav - I am going to send that quote to Mr. Amazing Man! That is so funny.

Aly22681 - Oh dear. "The talk" is never pleasant. I hope that your eggs mature by Thursday! Keep us posted.

MaryLang - Welcome to "The One Thread." Hope your stay isn't long and that you get a sticky baby.

Curses! My plot was foiled

I wanted to test earlier than I was planning - AF is due tomorrow and things are looking like I could get the BFP we are hoping for. I don't have any HPT in the house and so I drove down to the ONE Dollar Tree in town to get some. Guess what? They are out of pregnancy tests and won't get another shipment in until March 4!!!!

Whatever. I will know by then one way or another, so they can keep their silly little tests.

I guess it prevented me from testing before I should though.

That's what you get for being a naughty early tester!

Kidding!

You know, the Dollar Tree nearest me used to carry OPKs. One day I bought ONE from them - the same ONE they had had on the shelf for a couple of months. They never ordered anymore. Just PG tests. Guess there wasn't enough demand?

So Mr. Amazing Man called - I don't think he remembers where I am at in my cycle, one of those "feminine mystery" kinds of things. Bless his clueless heart, I do so adore him but he really doesn't have any idea what this waiting game is like.

I am going crazy not testing, especially after reading on FF that a triphasic chart has an 179% increased chance of ending in a BFP than a non-triphasic chart. My chart is clearly triphasic (never has been before) and I really, really really want to POAS!!!! Someone, anyone, tell me not to run out to the store and buy really expensive HPT until I make it past 14 DPO! That would put me 2 days past my expected AF date, safe enough to trust the test results. I don't want another BFP followed up by bleeding the next day...that makes me sostinkinsad.

So for the longest time I have been looking for a fertility necklace. I dont really believe in fertility stones and so forth so basically I just want a necklace that make me smile when I think about TTC (instead of curse like I have been lately anytime I think about it) also something to keep my rings on when I get pregnant and too fat to wear them anymore. I wanted something simple that I can wear everyday ( with jeans and t-shirt or dressed up). Originally I wanted a Dragonfly necklace (bc that is what I have decided to do for a girls nursery, Im doing nautical for a boy but I'm a girl so a sailboat just doesnt fit me) Well today I randomly stumbled across this onlineNECKLACE

It looks like a pregnant heart ....I LOVE IT!!!
I just emailed it to DH and my B-day is tomorrow so I'm sure he wont deny me!!

This is so weird because I haven't even been around here the past few days but, Luna I had a dream you were pregnant! I was pregnant too but I haven't even O'd yet so I know that's not true haha.

I'm on CD8 and between getting sick with a fever and my husbands family coming down I haven't temped at all. I have to say it's almost a relieving feeling not having it on the front of my mind all day.
post #39 of 227
ALY that necklace is beautiful. And I think it's so important to have a pleasant thing to think about when TTC. My biggest challenge now is to enjoy this time in my life. I hate feeling like I'm living my life in 2 week segments...and wishing them away at the same time. Happy Birthday and enjoy the necklace!

Aly22681... Sorry the timing is a little off. But, three eggs? Yippee!!!!! Let's see multiply three eggs by three months, plus this cycle, that's... TWELVE more chances for a BFP!!!

I know, kinda lame, but you gotta try and look at the bright side. I'm with the doc, you'll catch one before you get forced to an RE.

And, behave yourself!! Stop pushing HPTs! Naughty, naughty, naughty.

The necklace is cute. And, Happy Birthday!!! (In case I forget tomorrow)

JuliaV... Thanks for the Sperm support! Keep sniffling!

SoStinkinHappy... Shame on you for trying to test early! I guess you will just have to wait until it's worth paying for the expensive tests. Hey, it's better than looking at false early negatives! Those are depressing not only because they're negative, but also because we were stupid enough to use them!!

Filiadeluna... My Dollar Tree stores don't have OPKs anymore either. #@$^&*#!!!!!

Madalyn... I hope your dream is a premonition!!! Now, start dreaming about the rest of us!!!

Everybody have a fertile evening!
