Hi all. I'm going in for my IUI tomorrow morning and will get blood test on 7/23. So I'll use that as my testing date. Wish me luck! Hoping for lots of BFPs!!!!

Happy Birthday SimplyRochelle! : Here's hoping for your BFP! (and everyone else's!)

I went out and bought a BBT. I think I'll temp with both throughout this cycle and we'll see if there's a significant difference. :

Count me in for a long two weeks. Eeee!

got my trigger shot today (so ovulating tomorrow). IUIs tomorrow and Saturday. So I'm almost into the 2ww! So excited to be joining y'all.

Let's start the BFPs, okay? I want to see a whole lotta April babes! :

I was looking through my bathroom stuff and found a leftover clearblueeasy! SCORE! If I can only wait til my minimum testing date! Its so much harder when you're in the wait. I should just be enjoying my days pre period instead of wishing them away. Especially in this heat.

Ok...I promised myself (again) that I wouldn't obsess, and here I am (again) with something I can't help but obsess over.

Twice today, when I went to do my usual CM check, I got creamy with a bit of EW. Now, if I wasn't sure I'd O'd, or if I was only a day or so away from AF, I wouldn't be confused. But I did O (my afternoon temps are up to 99+, typical post-O) and I'm only around 6 DPO. AF isn't due until the 18th.

Do you think a bit of EWCM at 6 dpo is a good sign??

Put the test down and slowly back away. You've still got 12 days!

laughup Really, if you're going to start testing so early, at least get the dollar store tests or you won't have $ to pay for the baby!

: Them's fighting words....but I need them. I have a minimum of 10 days to test and I want to test NOW. But even in 10 days, if I would be pregnant I probably won't test positive until more like 25 dpo. UGH. Darn, long cycles.

TWW for me, testing 20th or as long as I can hold out!

Sorry, posted a moment ago, forgetting that I have yet to obsess here:

TTC #3 for about 6 months now......not so happy with the negative results so far. I O'd according to the CBFM on the 5/6th of July.
post #73 of 553
Anyone else here have this terrible tendancy that I have:
At 2dpo I feel no symptoms and fall into a pit of sorrow saying- it didn't happen again! I don't feel any different boo hoo. Yet it is only 2dpo.

I hope this is simply obsessing rather than intuition!
Ugh.
I want to be pregnant so much it is starting to drive me NUTS.
It is taking so long.

My other bad habit is finding ways of blaming myself such as, it is 2dpo and I feel nothing. That means I am not pregnant cause I am probably being punished for _____ whatever thing I decide to feel bad about.

This ttc thing can really put you through the ringer!

Needless to say, 2dpo and no symptoms yet

Yesterday DH asked me if I were pregnant. I told him that my period was still 11 days away and he shrugged and asked me how that would stop me from being pregnant. Weird. My breasts are sore, but it's only 2DPO, that could mean anything or nothing.

Oh yes, that. A million times that.

Phantaja - I don't think men understand how our bodies work quite like we do.

Wobblykate - let me know how the BBT thermometer works. I'm still using a digital one, too, but it is very sensitive and seems to work well, but I always wondered how much of a difference the BBT thermometer would make.

So here's some TMI stuff, but it kinda sucks... Last night while I was going to the bathroom (#2), when I wiped afterwards, there was a little bit of pink spotting. (It was definitely from my female parts, not from my tush). I'm 5dpo, so it would be too soon for implantation bleeding, and this has happened to me sometimes during past cycles. I don't think it's a very good sign Also, my temps dropped today just a little (still above my coverline though). ARGH.

Understatement of the year. DH didn't want to BD last night (too tired, which I understand) and he was like, "won't the ones from the night before be okay?" ARGH. I don't even try to explain to him that yesterday I had EWCM and that might mean I ovulated on CD20 so our chances are already slim because he'd be like "WTF?" and after the EW part he'd probably only hear "blah, blah, blah" anyway.

I thought implantation generally occurred at 5-10 dpo? It'd be on the outside, but not impossible. GL

Well, I did both thermometers this AM and the BBT read 96.9 while the digital read 96.6. Pretty big difference when it comes to BB Temp, but I'm going to keep going with using both because if the digital's consistently showing a difference of .3 degrees, then it's still going to show an accurate temp progression throughout the cycle, in which case, I'll use the numbers for the digital to pinpoint ovulation b/c I've been using that one since CD1.

BTW the hammer smilie is awesome, almost theraputic. I feel better already and I can't get arrested for using a virtual hammer.

The poor guy doesn't have a clue. But I still thought that it was cute, not to mention true. If I'm pregnant in 11 days, then I'd be pregnant now anyway, right? Boy logic makes me giggle.

LMAO
I've had to explain the "facts of life" to DH a few times now. He has it in his mind that because the doctor told him that his swimmers can live up to 72 hours we don't have to worry about things as much. Like...HELLO!!! Then I have had to explain the whole ovulation thing to him and that the idea is to already have a good supply in there waiting to catch that egg. I think after a semester of reproductive biology he finally gets it. : Plus now we have conversations about CM in which he adds in his two TMI cents. Then last night I was trying to explain cervix position stuff because he wanted to know and wants me to talk to him about this stuff. Why I don't know. Seriously...just shut up and get naked. *wink*

That is so funny about your men, girls! I was going to say in my last post that my man has no idea that having sex 5dpo isn't going to get me pregnant, but I was embarrassed to write that, because I was like, "They are going to think he is a total moron!" I think my BP thinks that we can get pregnant no matter what - the more sex, the better, whenever.... Even though I've explained ovulation and everything. Once, we were DTD the day after the end of my period, and when we were done, he was like, "Are you pregnant?"

Not a moron...just genetically challenged. I mean, unless your guy is an OBGYN he probably only barely understands how babies are made. I think in 6th grade sex ed they all tuned out after their part is explained and started thinking about baseball so they wouldn't embarrass themselves.
