The early to mid July TWW - Page 4

post #61 of 408
Hi ladies! I hope you don't mind if I join you all.

My husband and I were not planning to TTC until next month, but we decided to not be so careful in June and we bd'd on CD 14 and 16 and on CD 17 I had a lot of EWCM. Since my cycle is normally around 35-37 days it was a surprise to see the EWCM, but again I had a little EWCM on CD 18 and I'm pretty sure some O twinges on CD 19. My cycle can definitely have a range, last August was 28 days but just this past May/June was 45 days. Here I am on CD 26 and I'm trying hard to not obsess and trying even harder to not test yet.

I'm hoping to wait until the 12th to test, but now I have urges to test on the 7th.

I've been charting my cycles dates for a couple of years and checking CM, but I haven't been temping so I'm not exactly sure what day would have been O day. I guess I'm anywhere from 9-7 dpo.

North - please update my chart from the ovusoft link to the new and improved (and friendlier FF chart).

North of 60 -What are you doing about your opk. Mine are the same as yours. They have been very positive for three days. Was your opk negative today? I hope mine start to get negative. If I knew what I was doing I would show you a picture. I am going to start the progesterone on Monday. Do you think you caught what is the LH surge on the up and downward swing? I should have stopped after the first opk. They probably say to stop after the first one so you don't go second guessing yourself. What do you think.

B-girl- You should test soon. I could not hold out. FRER works really well as I got BFP two times at 8-9 dpo. I am so excited for you. Keep us posted.

I will start testing on July 12th and I already bought my dollar tree tests. May splurge and get a FRER. My dh are going to bd on Sunday one last time to make sure all bases are covered. If I got my first positive opk on Thurs. and I bd everyday from Wed to Sunday I think I should have hit the right time frame. I think I will skip Monday. I have to say those instead cups really seem to do the trick. I love getting bfp as it is like winning the lottery. Good luck to all.

Well, I started testing on CD 11, and they got progessively darker until they turned positive, and aside from the one wonky positive in the middle of the two negatives, they did go down again. I didn't enter that one into fertility friend, I left it as my last positive on CD 16 (even though I had a positive early on CD 17, but it turned negative later that day.. in any case, I have it entered into FF as 3 positive days, which is what they are on paper too - 72 hours).

This mornings was negative, but now I'm curious to test again and see if it's still negative. I was just going to do it again tomorrow morning. Yeah, it will deffinitly make you go crazy.

Thanks kellygirl and good luck to you!

We are planning to go to the Dollar Tree tomorrow and hopefully get some tests. I'm not sure how long I can hold out once I have the tests in my possession

My husband really wants to see a positive, so much so I think he doesn't want me to test early and see a false negative. I'm trying to hold out for him.

I'm definitely feeling a little different this past week, but who knows if it's all in my head.

I'm waiting to test on 7/9 with my last test. Can I or will I hold out...only time will tell! I'm a testing freak and I obsess!

My fertility friend chart is here: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/a9dfd

If I didn't do that correctly, let me know. Thanks!

Edited to add I was nauseas all day yesterday and today. I have been a complete wreck emotionally. Cried and was aggitated and like PMS on steriods. Nipples are tender when dd nurses. Maybe pregnancy symptoms, or AF is coming early and I have another short luteal phase.

Hi Danielle, saw your "accountability" thread and thought I'd send restraint vibes your way! I too am waiting another week to test... 7/12 will be 14DPO. AND, DH and I are in India right now, and the pregnancy tests aren't as sensitive as those in the U.S., so no early testing for me. The good news is that they're super inexpensive - just $1 with the current exchange rate. Good luck holding out TWWers!

I'm finally checking in. I really needed to stay away for a few days because I could feel myself becoming obsessive in this 2ww, and I don't want to do that!

I'm 8dpo today and had planned to hold out until Monday, the 14th to test, but I may give in and test sometime this week. The reason for that is that I'm having pregnancy-specific (for me) symptoms. Can I share?

1. have had indigestion reflux every day for a week
2. bloated
3. for the last two days I've been really tired; so much so that I'm going to bed earlier yet still having to take two naps during the day
4. nausea -- I do sometimes have it pre-AF off and on, but for the past two days it's been all day long (even after I eat) and this morning I almost threw up while brushing my teeth
5. protruding nipples -- ok, I know this is too much information, but this is a big symptom for me! It started yesterday, nips are protruding, but soft -- not hard & erect like when you're aroused, you know. The only other time this happened was when I was pregnant.
6. Breasts have been tender since O, but yesterday they actually become sore and that continues today. I sometimes have tenderness pre-AF, but it's not usually bad and it tends to focus on the outside of bbs and under the arms. Now it's both bbs, all over and so painful that I winced and cried out when DH and DS hugged me last night and this morning. It was even uncomfortable to have the shower on them.
7. super hungry


So, I've been pregnant twice so far this year. I lost the first one in February, but that pregnancy was a complete surprise so I didn't pay attention to any symptoms before the BFP. The last pregnancy was in May -- definitely ttc -- and I became aware of a few things that were out of the ordinary for me in my cycle. That's what I'm looking for now. I know that every pregnancy is different, and who knows what could be going on with my body after the last loss. But still....

My cycle is very consistent and my temps are looking good. That, combined with the unusual feelings going on, are giving me hope! But I'm trying not to get too wrapped up in it.

One more thing: The very main symptom I had in my last pregnancy was a crazy sensation in my uterus on 8 and 9 dpo. I'm 100% convinced it was implantation and even knew it at the time. The way I described it in my journal when it was happening was that it felt like my uterus was "undulating." You know that feeling you get when you're having a muscle spasm and you can see the skin "jumping?" That's what it felt like, deep in the uterus, always in the same spot, no cramping with it, just very clear tickly kind of feeling. It was just a few days after having those sensations that I got my BFP.

Unfortunately, that pregnancy didn't stick...and so far I haven't had that feeling again. But, if it happens again this cycle I will really believe that my next hpt will be positive. We'll see!

I know this was long, but thanks for letting me share. When I finally break down and test I'll post what happens.

Anyone else with symptoms? Anyone test this weekend?

Well, my temp went up again this morning so I caved and did my last internet cheapie test. BFN. But, it's only 10dpo, and that is early for me. I don't think I've ever gotten a positive before 14dpo, and that wasn't all that dark, but it resulted in the little one currently on my lap. So, I should have waited and I plan to get some better tests. I don't know if my batch was wonky or not, but it didn't even pick up the positive I should have had a couple months ago when I miscarried early. So, I am determined to remain optimistic.

My stomach is a bit wonky... has been for several days. I've got some breast tenderness and (probably TMI) it is feeling different down below, especially when DTD. Kind of like something "shifted." Weird.

Anyway, I am not testing again until at least Thursday (14dpo) but I think I'm going to try and hold out for next Saturday.

steed - RATS!!!

Your chart looked SOOOOOO good too?? I'm sorry. Just goes to show how up in the air it all is. I myself am combing the net for all those lame charts...flat temps...hoping to find a success story.

You won't be alone next round - I'm SURE!!!

North of 60, you don't seem to have included me on your list. See post 27 on page 2 of this thread.

Not that it matters. I have had no symptoms and would be very surprised if I were pregnant.

If you're going to test on the 8th which is 10DPO, that makes today 8 DPO. It's possible implantation hasn't happened yet, hence no symptoms. I wouldn't be pessimistic just yet, it's still early!!

steed - you aught to go on and start the EARLY - MID August TWW thread!!!

I have a feeling I'll be joining you...

I went and bought some friggin' Progesterone Cream at Whole Foods today and I plan on taking a Progesterone BATH this evening.



Gotta love a little 'google self diagnosing' to really take charge of your fertility.

I figure it can't hurt - these temps are awful. But they are definatley DIFFERENT than the pre-o temps. There is a shift...its just not an impressive one. If there was an egg to be fertilized I'm fairly confident it got done. Question is whether or not my 'lining' will prove lush enough for it to IMPLANT and stick around.

The more I read about chemical pregnancy, the more I'm thinking I may have had one last month. Also wondering if I may have a thyroid issue - as that has been suggested to me in the past for other reasons. I'm not but 113lbs at 5'5 have a very high metabolism and struggle with panic attacks/anxiety. Never had it checked though. Although - it doesn't appear that my luteal phase will be particularly short. Just maybe low progesterone.

OKAY THATS ENOUGH!

Anyone in here take BABY ASPRIN??? Should I???
