Thanks! I don't know what to feel right now. It's certainly not what we planned, but it's not a crisis either. We'll figure it out. It's funny, I think my DH is more stressed about it than I am, and HE is the one that has wanted a fourth! I am more zen right now, what ever will be will be. I'm fretting somewhat, about logistics, money, etc. DH says I don't need to bother taking a test because as I sit here writing I have all three cats surrounding me and the dog sleeping on my feet. It's always been a sign that I'm pregnant, the animals hovering around, and here they all are! Of course, it's WAY to soon to know anything, at a whopping four days past DTD. (drumming nails on the table) Maybe I'm not zen... I just was having a zen moment. I just want to know and move on from here!

I am 17 months postpartum and nursing, haven't started cycling yet.  My nipples have been so sensitive the last five days, and OUCHY when he latches on.  I had crazy slippery dripping CM that started a couple weeks ago and subsided just when my nipples started to hurt.  I have not experienced pms symptoms like this when my fertility returned the other four times- usually it happens that one day I'm surprised to be bleeding.  I have experienced nipple tenderness premenstrually before but only 2 or 3 days not going on 6...so either I'm pregnant (hubby thinks he would know if sperm was escaping and puts condoms on during the home stretch) or this is more intense PMS than I've ever had before.

 

Kind of excited about the possibility but maybe not about the reality??  I've been talking vasectomy.

I am never zen when it comes to the possibility of being pregnant! LOL 

 

Make sure you update :)

So after all that, now nothing is going on.  Full moon.  I have never experience that kind of nipple sensation except when I'm pregnant.  With my pregnancies I always have brown mucusy stuff when my period is due.  But since I haven't been bleeding, maybe I just skipped that part?  I don't like to test early b/c my tests are always negative until pretty late, and go back and forth between positive and negative for so long that I don't believe the negative tests : )

Just hanging out playing the "what will my body tell me next?" game!

post #1726 of 1838

Got my period, all normal.  Now at day 14 I'm having mid-cycle bleeding/spotting.  Never had that before.  Our bodies are always throwing us for a loop, keeping us on our toes! (as if I don't have enough of that already!)

 

post #1727 of 1838

Yep, I want to join this thread. JUST found out (took a pee test 15 minutes ago) that I'm pregnant with our 3rd. We were happy with two, but we were also ambivalent and DH kept putting of getting snipped, so here we are! 

post #1728 of 1838

May possibly be in this thread....period was due..uh, a few days ago, but im hoping she will come today.  If she doesnt, then thas when i will go buy the pregnancy test.  Sigh, i hope and kinda dont hope she comes today though, its a weird place to be in.

post #1729 of 1838

 

So I'm having nipple sensitivity and terrible fatigue... really REALLY moody this week too. Did I mention I have been horrendously moody? :P  My poor family! Either this is a helluva PMS week or ..... well we know what the name of the thread is! 

 

9DPO.... stark white BFN this morning 

post #1730 of 1838

I took a test on Friday night and it came out positive... definitely was not trying at all. The father of my child is in shock and I'll be scheduling a doctor's appointment for this coming week to at least have a confirmed blood test.

 

I'm still in shock/anxiety driven sooo... we'll see. :-)

Nevermind, she arrived just now.  Relief with a tinge of sadness.

post #1732 of 1838

Hi.  Thought I had already ovulated.  Turns out I didn't.  2 DPO down, many to go.

post #1733 of 1838

10 DPO, negative on FRER.

post #1734 of 1838

Just wondering- how successful can the "pull out" method be? I really want a baby, waiting on financial readiness, but I'm scared I won't be able to conceive because I've been using the "pull out" method for like 4 years now, and have never (to my knowledge) been pregnant. And I've had A LOT of sex, every single month, in those four years. My husband (jokingly?) says that maybe his sperm count is low because we do it so much ;-)

Scarleteen says, "Withdrawal is 96% effective in perfect use and is 73-82% effective in typical use." (And "With the withdrawal, perfect use generally means not having a penis with ejaculate already on it, urinating after a previous ejaculation, and then being sure that with the intercourse, you withdraw your penis from her vagina well before you ejaculate.")

Elizabeth67- I conceived multiple times using the pull out method -Hello Surprise Babies! I also have several friends who have conceived using it. I read all the research and really think that we followed the withdrawal rules but I still got pregnant so I don't think it's an effective method. My sister used it for years and it worked for her because she wasn't ovulating and didn't know it until she started actively trying. Do you chart? I gave my sister the TCOYF book and that's when she figured out why the pull out method never failed her. She ended up having hypothyroid issues but once she was on the right meds she conceived and I now have a 5 month old nephew. So try charting and maybe you guys are just excellent at withdrawal shrug.gif

post #1737 of 1838

13 DPO negative.  AF should be here tomorrow but I think we already are safe.  Would have been cool to announce for Easter though.  Another month down, another month between little ones.  tea6.gif

post #1738 of 1838

Really stressed out last month and for the first time in years my cycle got all wonky and may have DTD two times before ovulation...never had confirmation of ovulation though so is possible I never ovulated either.  Not an ideal time to be pregnant, though I am not opposed to it happening again.  Just not ideal timing.  I'm assuming though, as I'm older now, I'm less likely to have an accident...

post #1739 of 1838

So, I'm waiting on my period. I've been spotting for like 4 days  . . . and I also noticed that for the past few days my nipples look "open" like they never have before. Or, at least i've never noticed them looking "open." Is that normal, or could it be a sign of pregnancy?  My period is usually a few days "late," so its sort of hard to tell when exactly to expect it. I haven't been tracking my ovulation, so I don't know about that. I'm not having any other symptoms, except for that I've been really irritable & emotional on and off for a week or so, but that could have been pms.

Thanks! I'm pretty sure i'm not ovulating, but I haven't succeeded in consistently checking my bbt or cm. maybe i should. it might help with the uncertainty that comes each month!
