NO-TESTERS, NON-STRESSERS!!! That's what we are.

We aren't against testing, just testing early. And now we've decided to make this a mostly no-stressing (about symptoms) thread, too. Come join us!

b-girl is PREGNANT!!!!!! Let's let the baby dust settle down upon all of us on the list below

Ravenstar is PREGNANT!!!!!! Mo' baby dust!

Octobermoon
is PREGNANT!!!!!!! Let the baby dust snow, let it snow!!!!

texmati is PREGNANT!!!!!!!! Baby dust, baby dust, baby dust!

Tear78 is PREGNANT!!!!!!!! Baby dust blizzard!!

Look for more comfirming BFP tests (after AF is late, according to our creed, that also includes exclusion from getting wrinkles and scars outside of stretch marks from pregnancy) here's when we're all scheduled to test:

Be calm, be cool, be positive!

But don't be POAS!

POAS doesn't make you pregnant, and doing it too early can cause a lot of grief. Stay strong, mamas!

"No Stressers, No Testers"? Was that it?

Thanks for starting a New Thread!

I will be testing at 16DPO. No idea when that will be. I'm CD9 and just remembered for the first time this cycle to temp. Hahah. My temperature was high too. I don't like flukes; they mess up my chart.

Happy New Year!
Happy New thread!
I am 9 dpo today. I plan on testing at 14 dpo which is Jan 6th.
So far I'm feeling fairly calm. I'm not temping every morning...that seems to help the days go by.

Married Mama to two girls, A (4/06) and I (9/09).

Hello All,
I'm new to this kind of thread, but after a non-sticky BFP this past month, I vowed not to test before AF is missed. I'm at CD9 today, too. I plan not to test before 15dpo. That would be January 20th I think. Man, that seems like a long ways away. I can't promise not to stress about symptoms....but I'm going to try. Good luck to all!

UPDATED TO HERE.

How am I doing so far? I won't be constantly looking for approval and kudos all month, I promise, but tell me if I'm missing something. I want to be a good thread leader.

Hello! Thanks for the new thread MrsTC.

I'm testing on Jan 3rd if AF does not arrive by then. I have a back ache and some cramps so AF is likely on the way. I'm guessing tomorrow.

I was just looking at the calendar and I may squeeze in another cycle before the end of January (because there are 31 days) so I still have hope before the end of the month.

I was feeling totally uncreative, and my husband suggested I take the name of a character from the video game I was playing, tear, and i was born in 78. Weird...but I kinda like it.

To add a chart to your signature:
copy this line, but remove the * and change the "http://www.yourchartaddress.com" to your own chart's address (if using FF, under the sharing menu click on "Home Page Setup, and copy the address in the box under "Your Charting Home Page Web Address").

No signs of AF yet. It's cold here right now so banishing AF to somewhere hot would be good!

I am not testing until 18 DPO for ANY cycle this year. At all. Because if I don't have AF by then I certainly must be pg, or I'm broken.

How'd I get my username? My name's Karen and I married Mr. Parker

Thanks for the new thread MrsTC! Can you add me to the list as well? Lisko15 testing January 17th (18 or 19 dpo) or January 14th if AF just doesn't feel impending... THANKS!

HI to those I haven't posted to before... and welcome Tear78. Followed your post last month... very sorry about your early m/c. Hoping you get a healthy, happy sticky baby very soon!

How did you come up with your user-name?

Nickname is "Lis", last name begins with "Ko", and the 15th is my anniversary date (and just a special day for us all around... would be amazingly cool if this baby we are trying to make is born and/or due on the 15th ).

AFM - Nothing exciting to share symptom-wise. Too soon for that anyway, only 3 or 4 dpo. Feeling a bit yeasty... that's just no fun...

Have a good day ALL!

Still no here.. still haven't tested :too nervous:

As for my user name..
my first name starts with B, and I'm a girl -- I'm not a b-girl (ala b-boy).. didn't even think of that when creating my user name.

Doing good! A suggestion: list us in order of our test dates (like Jan 3, Jan 8th, etc). That way when we look at the list, we see who is next to test/AF!

How did you come up with your user-name?
It's my first and middle name. Easy.

And Octobermoon, your is one of my favorites!

Good idea, Kali. Next time I have more time to sit and edit, I'll make it easier to read, more user-friendly.

Thinking good thoughts, b-girl!!!!!!: Don't want to add drama if you're trying to stay chill about it, but what are you feeling/thinking?
