to Favrielle and those who need them.

My temp went up again this morning. I am trying to stay hopeful but, it would be easier if my nipple pain wasn't dulling. I talked to DH last night and he told me not to test early at all. He told me to wait until I am late.

Who is he kidding? I want to test now gosh darnit. My willpower only lasts so long. Its starting to slip now.

Only 4 more days....

Ok, ladies. Results in from the first blood draw. My levels were down to <5 so I won't be starting the Prometrium (after paying over $250 for it after insurance!! and I won't be doing the second draw. I guess that means I'm out for sure. I'm cramping heavier now, and starting to spot, so no surprise there.

The PA was soooo sweet, though. She also said my OB wants me to start the Prometrium next cycle after O, keep it up until I either get AF or reach CD36, and go in for a blood hcg test. No more POAS allowed. They'll do everything they can to get/help me stay pg.

I don't feel too comfortable sticking around here, but I hope you ladies get your BFPs. Baby dust and lots of : to all of you waiting, and thanks for being there for me.

Oh, I'm so sorry. Sounds like you have a great course of action though.
post #225 of 553
I'm sorry favrielle. : for next month and the progesterone! Hopefully August is the month you get your babe!
post #226 of 553
I'll be testing on 7/25!
post #227 of 553
well i am cramping a bit today. I know it is still early, but its making me lose faith. I really hope this is just the baby burrowing in for the next 9 months :
I have decided that if my temp is high in the morning i will test with fmu. It will be 12-14dpo (i am not absolutely sure i agree with ff about my o date) I was going to wait until tues but we are headed out of town tomorrow eve and i would really like to know before we leave.

Hoping for BFP's for all of us still waiting.

to you, favrielle. That's really hard.

***
I'm 7dpo today, and as I was putting dd2 to sleep tonight, I felt a little bit achy/crampy in my pelvis. When she fell asleep, I got up to pee and had a little streak of blood on the TP. Feeling hopeful but reserved... it seems almost impossible to catch the first pp egg, but I'm 99% sure I ovulated 7 days ago (4-inch long EWCM and mittelschmerz). We shall see, though I'll be totally surprised if I get BFNs and no AF...
post #230 of 553
I'm sorry, Favrielle.

I gave in and tested early. I tested tonight (so 11, almost 12, dpo). I hadn't peed in several hours, so I figured it was safe.

BFN. Surprise, surprise. I really don't know how much longer I can take this. I know, there's still a small chance, but I'm really doubting it now. It's onto cycle 10. Double digits. :

I have been having cramps for several days now, and today I've been having sharp pains in my pelvis. Why in the world is this happening if it's not pregnancy? Cramps (minus the sharp pains) have been happening for several months now. I didn't used to get cramps until AF started.

Anyway, back to the TWW.....still no AF, I am on day 32 now and just waiting. Feels weird for me, but I can't tell if I am or no. Kind of feels like AF is on her way, sometimes feels full in the belly, but I don't know. How is that for wishy washy

It is a small world! My FIL and one of my SILs live in CR and we are going to visit them. I kind of expected we would be somewhat limited. The stink didn't occur to me, though. Thanks for the head's up!

The new symptom that I'm obsessing over is my taste is off a bit. Not so much with food, but with liquids. I still drink 1 small cup of coffee in the morning and it hasn't tasted right the past day or two. Like it was burnt or something. Of course, it could have just been burnt.

We're taking the laptop to Iowa with us so that I can continue to obsess. It's so much better with this board!!

Hope everyone is doing well! :

Hello everyone! Back from the camping trip, we stayed an extra few days all be it in the rain for the most part! But we had fun.

Still obsessing but fast losing hope, looks like I'm gonna have to keep this appointment Tuesday. My temps are on the way down, feeling crampy & the copius creamy CM i was having has all but dried up. That said I woke up craving veda this morning, which I haven't eaten in years, so lunatic that I am I'll hold onto that until the old b***h arrives. I'm hoping it won't be before Sunday as we're heading back to the tent with friends just for tonight and I'd rather not deal with her and the devastation at the campsite. Anyway, the way I feel I'd say there's a good chance she'll be here later today. I'm going to have a couple of glasses of wine tonight either way. If she doesn't show, I'll probably test on Sunday but really not very hopeful I'll get that far.

Sorry, all about me!

Favrielle - that is so rough, I really hope this journey gets easier for you and in fact ends soon, With a sticky bean of course.

iluv - your chart looks fantastic. When are you testing?

Must go, will catch up with all the personals later.

hugs! I know how you feel, I am in the same boat ttc #q for 10 months. Sometimes it feels like- wtf? Isn't my body specifically designed just to do this? wht is getting pregnant do hard? Hope you are!!

As for me, 9dpo. I am erring on the side of less days past o since I could've oed 1 out of 3 days ( had 3 +opks). So counting the last +opk as O day I am 9 dpo.
Poas this morning on a dollar tree and saw the faintest evap line. It was light and could only be seen at certain angles. By later this morning it had turned to a blob.
So I have no idea id I am pregnant. I f-ing hope so!
Still light cramping.
I had no implantation bleeding that I noticed. Do you NEED that to be pregnant? But I am only 9dpo so I may still be implanting!

Who knows.
Super emotional though- been crying at the drop of a pin. And hungry.
HOPING FOR MY BABY


Have a peaceful day everyone! Best of ferility luck to ALL of us!

I'm joining this thread late- hope that is okay! But I read this and could totally relate. AF is 2 days late/13DPO today. Just waiting.....feel kind of weird but not all the time. I also feel that AF is coming and feel "full" but I don't have all my normal PMS symptoms. I tested BFN yesterday It's driving me nuts!
post #236 of 553
katie, I'm so nervous for you! I hope this is it!!! I am pretty sure you don't need to have had implantation bleeding... so don't worry about that. Just try to hold on and test again maybe in a couple days? oooooooh!

Favrielle, I'm glad at least you have a response from your doctor's office about this. hang in there!

I'm 7dpo now, so officially obsessing now about implantation signs. I have gotten phantom "implantation dips" on my chart before, and phantom "implantation cramping" so I know this is a futile effort to look for these signs... doesn't stop me! This is the part of the 2ww where I become insane though, super emotional and labile, cranky, etc. I hate waiting!

How is everyone else coping lately? I'm going to see the new batman movie tonight, and then I'm going to try to clean the house really well this weekend.
post #237 of 553
Favrielle, I'm glad your doctor is more receptive to you now. Hopefully with their help, things will look up. And I think not POASsing is a good idea! Anticipation is a positive emotion, and even though when AF comes it is dissapointing, it is much less of a roller coaster than getting a + and losing it

iluvbnamomma: This was our day to test! Let me know how things go!

I was talking to my sister last night and she just had a baby in April. She said she and her DH tried for a few months and the one month they didn't try - just DTD one time, that's when she conceived. $%$@^$@! Why does that always happen? I don't think I COULD relax enough to NOT try. I"m taking vitex and progesterone this cycle, we'll see what happens!
post #238 of 553
No, you definitely don't have to have implantation spotting. I didn't with either of my two pregnancies.
post #239 of 553
I am putting my name into the hat for the end of the month.
If July isn't ours then DH and I have an agreement to put away the thermometer for August. Still try but try to cut back on the obsessing.

well i woke up checked my temp and it was 99.0 up from 98.6 so of coarse i tested. unfortunately it was bfn. According to ff i am 12dpo so its still early, but i have been having AF like cramps since yesterday so with that and a bfn i think i am out. I thought i may have had imp bleeding 6dpo, so i think if it was i would have a bfp by now, right?
We are leaving this evening and will probably not temp until i return (10 days)

I am really bummed i thought this was it for sure.

??what else can cause spotting at 6dpo? It was one time when i wiped and pink in color.

Goodluck to everyone testing this weekend. :
