But all three of my kids either have the flu or are recovering from it, and my medicine makes me have hot flashes where I sweat profusely - and that's what I think is causing the breakout. I suspect I am about to get nailed with this flu, too.

I hope that's what it is. I recall "getting the flu" in February of 2005, and for two weeks the symptoms hung on, never really getting better but not worse either. I just kept saying it was the flu, until I broke through the barrier of denial and POAS. Which of course was positive, as that was my little Tootsie Pop (one of those currently with the flu). So I am hoping this really is the flu. Blah. Or if it's not, that it just goes away. Cause I feel like crap.

AF came on Friday - now I just wish I hadn't spent $$ on tests!
post #1163 of 1837
Add me to the list. I often have cycles when I think I may be pregnant, even though we're very careful to avoid. While I would like more babies, DH is not keen on it right now, and we're going through some hard times, so now is certainly not a good time. I figure if I post here, and maybe spend some $ on a test AF will show! My cycles are often 30- 32 days. I'm on CD31 with no sign, and my breasts are aching and tingling beyond anything normal for me pre-AF....

Ooooh, I always feel that way!!!!
post #1165 of 1837
AF started yesterday, thankfully!
post #1166 of 1837
OK, I give in....


I'll hang out with y'all for a bit....

So AF is almost 15 days late. It's only my second PP cycle, d2 is 1 yr old. If I am pg, one of two things happened. I got pregnant during my period w/ a sea sponge inside. Or we had a condom failure that neither of us noticed. again.

I am feeling full and crampy. Had a yeast infection two weeks ago (last month, it was right before AF arrived). My nipples are visible, and very tender. I'm so pale, normally they have no color. I have had slight nausea and heartburn, and some smell sensitivity. The longer time goes on, the more tired I feel, like curl up and fall fast asleep in an instant.

I have two bfn's so far, but with both boys, I had numerous bfn's when I was sure I was pg, before the bfp.

oh well!

Still nothing to report here. I have mah-jor EWCM today, so I'm guessing I'm in the clear.
post #1168 of 1837
OK, I am not sure where to begin.

DS2 is 11 months old. I got my first PPAF around the second week of May, and thats it! Now DS2 is almost completly weaned (No flames please) and I still havent gotten it. I am crampy on and off, but still nothing. He still nurses atleast once at night. But I figured once he night weaned I would get it back. I POAS today, and I almost thought I saw a very faint pos line, but am not sure. You know, it would be the kind of very faint line if you were only like 2 or 3 weeks? (That is exactly how it was with my first) So I guess I just wait another week, see if I get it, and if I dont, take another test. I get the cheap ones, and its like 10 bucks for 3 tests, so I have two left. We are in NO position for another baby. I would have to quit my job, PERIOD. There is no way we could send 3 kids to daycare. Or I would have to change my hours drastically and somehow find someone to help out so the kids could just stay home. Its a little scary. We are about 98% of the time very careful. One night, we both had maybe one to many drinks, but even in the heat of the moment, I always make him withdraw. ALWAYS. But thats only happend like 3 times in 11 months! The rest of the time, its condoms, condoms, condoms. But even then, the condom doesnt go on right away. SO maybe we screwed ourselves?

Im worried. I love my children, and I would do whatever it takes if I was pregnant with another one. But Lord, I was hoping to wait a couple more years!

ok, vent over. Thanks!

Here I am again! I knew I was safe for awhile because AF hadn't come back. My daughter has been pretty ill and now had surgery for a heart defect (COA). She is 9 months. In the process we weaned her to a high-calorie formula due to her poor weight gain and inability to nurse well. I quit my job and with three under three I didn't have time to pump to keep up my supply! Well, needless to say DH and I didn't have much time or interest in DTD. The other day we did and when I asked if he pulled out, he said, "mostly!" I calculated and it would be CD 14!!!! I haven't been charting, I'm not in the mind frame for this, I am freaking out! Now I just have to wait another 10 days at least! I don't know when I ovulate, but I know my normal cycles are about 28 days.
post #1171 of 1837
Hah! Hah-HAH! AF is here!!!!!


teehee......Thanks for letting me hang out for a tiny bit! It was nice to know I had company!
post #1172 of 1837
I'm still waiting. Having some cramping, sore breasts with a tingly feeling that reminds me of let-down....some weird cervix sensations...not sure what to think. I'm on CD 35 which very rarely does happen, but last month was 28 days....
post #1173 of 1837
Alas, it was only paranoia. AF arrived in full force today.
post #1174 of 1837
I'm waiting again ... I'm on day 46. I have no idea when I O'd this time. I thought I O'd on cd 20 then a week later I started having tons of EWCM for 11 days straight ... but I took a hpt a week ago and it was BFN (on day 40) ... so I'm still waiting. I've had a lot of creamy CM in the past week and a lot of PMS symptoms and cramping on cd 40 ... so now I'm really confused. I will test again next weekend I guess if this continues (this after 4 months of being on the clock regular ... weird).
post #1175 of 1837
Now I am completely freaked out!!! I am 6 days past DTD, CD 20 of my 1ST PP cycle and I just noticed a small amount of brown discharge on my undies. I pushed my TP a little and came out with pink!!! Implantation bleeding anyone??

Guess I'll be joining you all for a bit.

My DS is only 5 months old, EBF other than a random taste of food here and there. My cycles aren't back yet (came back at 8 mos pp w/ DD). We've been pretty laissez-faire about bc, as we know we want at least 3 kiddos. Sort of counting on lactation amennorrhea method for spacing them.

Well, a few days ago i noticed my arm veins getting VERY blue and prominent. Which was my first sign with both kids. Then started major smell sensitvity. As in smelling MIL's coffee creamer from 20 feet away. Went to buy a test the other day but $ Store was sold out- of course. Keep thinking i'm imagining it all, but then a few hours later i'm sure i am...

Think I'll run over to Dollar Store again tomorrow just so I can relieve the suspense. Not willing to buy more than a $1 test at this point.

ETA- That does kinda sound like impl. bleeding! Yikes!

Well, I never got the flu but I did stop feeling (mostly) icky. I am still horribly fatigued but the breakout cleared up and I am not really nauseated anymore.

Better news than that, the second-Monday test was .

Of course, no AF nor any sign of her, but Lil'Man is not quite 16 months old, and I don't expect her back until he's at least 18 months. Definitely going to be more careful though, because hpt's are really expensive and I just wanna be done, anyway. DH spent half the weekend being an a$$, which reminded me exactly why I don't want any more to begin with.

indeed!!! Wow... keep us posted. That certainly sounds like... well, yeah!!!
post #1179 of 1837
7DPO or CD21 and I don't give it much credit yet. I bought 3 tests at the dollar store. I will test again at 10DPO. The "implantation bleeding" if that's what it was, stopped and I am completely dry. We shall see.

I'm here. I don't have any kids and this would be totally unplanned and surprising. But I would be thrilled and I think BF would be happy too. I'm scared also, of course.

BF and I don't abstain at all during fertile times, always use withdrawal. I haven't gotten pregnant in the last 4 years of doing so, but really we are hardly careful compared to other people and I guess it's not so shocking.

I don't temp, but I am reasonably certain I ovulated around the 13th of October (I always have light spotting 15 days after CD1 following fertile CM). My cycle is usually 30-33 days, rarely 34 (and I am regular, I have one late period/longer cycle per year, usually). I am now on CD38, 39 tomorrow. So 24 days post-O by my reckoning.

I feel just awash in symptoms! About a week and a half post-O I woke up three different days in the middle of the night, all three times with severe heartburn and nausea, and two of those times I vomited which is totally random. It hasn't happened since, though. My head has been in a total fog for weeks and it's affecting my work, my nipples and boobs hurt, now for the past week and a half I have been having tons of activity in my abdomen.. gentle uterine cramping, awful gas pain, pains that feel similar to my usual middleshmirtz (sharp and burny, and to either side).

I am bloated as hell, I have to unbutton my pants when I sit down. And constipated for the FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE. It sucks so bad! And it's alternating with diarrhea which is also out of the ordinary. Farting like a madwoman either way. It doesn't help that I am eating a ton.

If I am not preg this is the worst and longest PMS ever! I normally have varied PM symptoms but none of this digestive stuff (besides a bit of bloating). I don't want to spend money on a test until I am really late. Maybe next week if I still haven't bled. Like I said I have a wonky, long cycle at least once a year and I always test, it's always negative..

I had the most vivid dream the other night about our son. He was about 9 months old and looked a lot like me as a baby. He was so chubby and beautiful. I could smell him. It was awesome. My life would be pretty crazy trying to get things in order if I am having a baby, but.. I want one anyway.

ETA: To be clear - I do not have a son! But in my dream I did.
