Welcome newbies! I hope you all get the answer you want!

Short and to the point because I am tired:

I had spotting after DTD today, but nothing else at all. The FRER I took this morning was virtually negative. My urine was a lot less concentrated that yesterday afternoon's test...so I'm hoping that is why. I've been in contact with my old midwife and she said to test again in a couple of days and then we'll go from there as far as getting a beta etc.

I'm still not even sure when I ovulated. The only thing I can tell you is that CD9 and CD17 were mild "oops" where he just didn't pull out on the first *ahem* squirt. CD20 we didn't pull out at all...but I don't see how I could be pregnant from then because the temps wouldn't line up at all. So there's only 3 possible dates and I had to have O'd sometime inbetween there. LOL

So technically I'm still in limbo and I'm either 16dpo or 12dpo. I'm hoping to know for sure in a couple of days when I take that next test. My temps are still above the cover line, but lower than they were. http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/2be681

Kim, I just looked at your chart, and I'm so sorry! What a roller coaster!!

Kim I'm sorry

Kim!

Sure enough my tests arrived Friday so I tested. So I took a test and when I wiped, AF had showed. Needless to say the test was negitive. I don't think I need to describe the mixed emotions especially now that Hubby has changed his mind about the V (he chickened out after the twins were born) taking away any chances of another 'oops' happening further down the road. I know in my head that this is what's best for my kids, but I can't help but feel a bit of a loss.

I'm sorry, Danelle. I felt much like you do when DH finally made the appointment to get his vasectomy. I think it's natural to feel sad to see that part of your life go. But now that it's all said and done, I'm feeling really good about moving on with the family we've created and experiencing all the rest that life has to offer. There's definitely an upside to being 'done'. But it's perfectly okay to mourn the loss!

Joining in here... I haven't been charting but think I may be pregnant. In fact now I'm pretty sure I am. Honestly I'm not even sure when my LMP was (oops!) but I know by now that I am definitely late. No signs of AF and I took a pregnancy test on the 21st with very very very faint positive line. The next day I took another and it appeared negative so maybe I was imagining it? I'm waiting a few days and then gonna test again. We'll see what happens. This is definitely an unplanned pregnancy if I am but honestly as worried as I am I'm kind of excited.

Thank you everyone. Yes, it was a chemical. I was upset and didn't really even want to post about it.

I am okay now though.

Hey all, can I join?

Kim

So I don't even know if I am ovulating yet now that DS is 13mo, but I have had a regular cycle since he was 6mo and things seem like they are normal enough. We really want to wait until DS is 2yrs or more until we start trying because he is a frequent night waker (as in 3-5 times on a good night) and we have had an exhausted, surreal, trying, but fantastic year with him. Also DH is self-employed and jobs are iffy in this economy, I am only temporarily employed, and oh yeah- we just bought a house and are now carrying our old house, trying to sell, in this horrible market.

HOWEVER, we both seem to be less and less careful DTD. We haven't used any protection since hm.... maybe 2003? and have had quite a few slip ups. This time really seemed like it might have done the trick- I don't know. I'm worried but soooo excited thinking about it. This is not a good time, but when is a good time? I'm only a few DPO, but who knows when O was- I can only narrow it to a few days. I am judging by how frisky I am, CM, and my pre-pg cycles. So here begins the waiting game...

I'm joining this thread for the next couple weeks

DH and I got lazy one night 9 days ago... and he didn't pull out when he should have... Its 8ish DPO so far and I've got several feelings going on...they are probably all in my head

I'm going in for a blood test at the Dr.'s next week ( I need a check up anyway) But it will just about time to test also.

DH doesn't want any more kids. I'm 50/50. So we shall see...

Umm... faint pink line!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been having some weird symptoms, but everything I could chalk up to impending AF, which is due in 4 days, including very light pink spotting two days ago. However, this morning DS was nursing and I never let down- odd, never happened before- and he didn't get much milk. I also had been dealing with a nasty hormonal cluster headache that I got a lot in early pg with DS, but who knows could just be AF coming, right? So I just POAS but not with FMU and low and behold- a faint pink line. It is definitely there. Ummm.....



So maybe this is a fluke? I don't have anymore test and want to wait for FMU to test again. Could this even be possible so soon after what may have been implantation bleeding?

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!
post #1656 of 1838
I've had *before* implantation bleeding. Sounds like congrats are in order!
post #1657 of 1838
I keep freaking out that I could possibly be pregnant. I haven't had PPAF yet, I am nursing my 15 month old and on the minipill. My stomach looks like it is getting round but the rest of me isn't gaining weight and my stomach is getting harder not softer, and I haven't been working out. Could totally be in my head or gas but I keep thinking I am feeling flutters.

Completely doesn't make sense if I am since I have no morning sickness or food aversions and my breasts don't hurt at all and I still have tons of milk so I think it is just mild paranoia since now would be a terrible time to be pregnant. I won't even go buy a test b/c it's expensive and if I was I would rather not know.

schnitzel- I get flutters sometimes that I think are just weird muscle spasms in my uterus, but it has fooled me in the past. I guess if you are pg, you will find out soon enough but it sounds as if there is a good chance you are not? I hope it turns out the way you want!

So....stupid me tested with an OPK today and got the faint line. So maybe it was just picking up a little lh at the end of my cycle and not hcg? I am burning to know but will wait until FMU tomorrow. I think I will post about this in the general forum...

It is worth the extra $$$ for the security in the results to get a pink dye test.
Good luck!
Oh no, does anyone know for sure if the tests from anotherblessing.com are blue or pink dye? I *just* ordered some from there because I have seen a recommendation in the past for that site as a good site to buy affordable tests from. However, I saw a picture of the tests and they looked blue (can't be sure though because they just could of used a stock photo instead of taking a pic of the actual product).

If they are the blue ones, what brands have the pink dye?

Whoops! Yeah, unless an OPK is "positive" - ie, as dark as the control line, it can't be trusted as a positive HPT (and they tend to not show that much until well after a standard HPT). Do you have a dollar store or somewhere to find cheap tests? Hope you get the answer you want tomorrow!
