Is it possible to be pregnant if I am 16 DPO and still got BFN this morning?

7dpo!! I am getting impatient. I went to CVS yesterday and got a 3 pack of PG test. Dumb move on my part. Now they are sitting in my bathroom just calling my name. Even though I know I wont get a positive at 7dpo. I am feeling hopeful though because I have had alot of cramping and I dont remember that last cycle.

I just found out that one of my good friends who is 33 weeks pregnant just lost the baby. She had high blood pressure and passed out so they took her in and the baby was gone. My heart is broken for her. I cant imagine. They tried over a year to get pregnant and she has had a hard pregnancy too. I feel so bad, but am kinda clueless as to how to help them ya know?

oh wow... that is so incredibly sad. I honestly don't think you can help her, except to just be there for her. Wow... that is devestating.

That's how it was for me this morning. I knew I shouldn't test, but I just couldn't help myself, and then I was sad when I got a BFN. It's only my 2nd cycle TTC, but the waiting is so hard!

Good luck to you! Hang in there! :

Oh, how heartbreaking. It really is hard to imagine a loss so late in the pregnancy. I know there is a forum for pregnancy/child loss on these boards, and there would probably be lots of women who have walked in your friend's shoes and would share some ways you can help your friend.

My miscarriages were very early, but I still wanted to talk about them, and I wanted people to remember my children. Everyone is different, of course, and your friend might not be so open. But my gut reaction is always to be a listening ear, to cry with her, and to not be afraid to mention her baby by name in the months and even years that follow.

I'm really sorry this has happened to you and your friend.

Shannon there's no right thing to say in that situation, in fact there is nothing anyone can say to help the situation. Just be there for her and give her plenty of hugs. Try to be normal around her and do whatever she wants. What I don't want is people constantly saying I'm sorry for your loss as I can't deal with other people's grief and that's what upsets me.

You can get memorial jewlery so maybe at some point suggest it to her and help her choose something.

Try to help her get through one day at a time instead of getting overwhelmed by it all and wondering how she'll cope a month or two months down the line.

That sounds a lot like my cycles. I have a short period and my temps stay pretty high until about CD 4 or 5. Your temp will probably go down more in the next couple of days. You can see my last 7 charts in my FF homepage to see what I mean.

Mrs Compgeek - I'm so sorry for your friends loss.

Lauren - I have no idea, but I was reading on FF that your temp can be high or low during AF, or be very erratic, and all is "normal". As each persons hormones change differently.

I'm just waiting for ol' AF to show up. Part of me is glad that I peed on so many sticks. Because now I know that even though AF is "late" (by only one day in my mind, but FF is saying that it isn't due till tomorrow now), I know I'm not pregnant. Because the little stick said so. That and I am PMSing (not pregnancy) and have AF symptoms not pregnancy symptoms. On the other hand I feel like I wasted $6 buying all those "sticks".

Anyways I have Feb cycle to look forward to, and some wine! And seriously, being hugely pregnant in the summertime isn't fun!

Thanks guys! Im just so heartbroken for her. And Im really worried about her because she had a miscarriage last year right around this time now this, Im really worried about her bouncing back emotionally from this. This baby was definetly wanted. Her son is 4 and was so excited for a baby brother. I am very worried about him. If any of you pray please just say a pray for her and her family and especially her son. They just finished the nursery so I am sure its going to be hard to come home today and see it all.
Im scared to death now that If I am pregnant how to tell her? Its gonna be sooo hard.

Shannon- That's horrible what happened to your friend. Take her flowers, make her dinners, listen to her mourn, and give her lots of hugs.

Lauren- I've seen charts where temps take a few days to get back down to baseline. I wouldn't worry about it.

My periods are medium to heavy on CD 1 and 2, and then get pretty light for about 2 days. I've read a bunch of info about period flow and length, and none of it is conclusive. I had very light periods when I go PG with my last son, so it didn't seem to affect my fertility then. I think the concern some people have is whether or not your flow is indicative of how thick your endometrial lining is, and if it's thick enough for implantation to occur. I've heard before that your body actually absorbs some of the lining, so what comes out might not be indicative of how much was in there in the first place. I don't think this is something you need to worry about. Your cycles are just now becoming normal, so it's not fair to say this is "normal" or not for you until you have a few more cycles to compare it to. I hope that helps a little.

AFM: I am too nervous to test. I'm going to wait until Thursday the 5th so I can be more certain that it will be +. I am very hopeful!

Thanks for your thoughts ladies. I know my endometrial stripe is normal *from the u/s I had of it* so maybe I just have light flow.

Monday Check in: Tuesday Feb 3
Name: lala
Date: Tuesday Feb 3
Where are you at in your cycle: not sure, "not thinking" about it this cycle
Appointments: none
Symptoms if they apply: none
Testing: Valentines Day if we have a miracle (DH has been out of town for the last 6 days so I think we missed the O)
Thoughts: Wow! I never have CM, very rarely. Every few months I get EWCM but this month I starting drinking atleast 8 oz of water a day and boy did that help on the CM. And for a few months I've been drinking lots of green tea trying to get more CM. I even had EWCM (but really early, wonder if I didn't O early). So ladies start drinking ur water.

Oh my gosh, DH, DS, and I all have the flu. I don't think I slept three hours total last night b/c DH threw up every hour on the hour. So my temp is wacko, and I'm a little scared that the illness might affect any potential developing egg from implanting. What do you think? Could being sick right after O harm my chances?

So this is my first cycle charting and FF says that I already o'd on day 10. I know this is not true.
-My shortest cycle in the past 15 months was 28 days. On average, they are about 34-37 days, as long as 54 days.
-No EWCM yet. Not even close.

So, what does the dotted line mean as opposed to the solid line?
Will the o date automatically change as I keep recording my temps?

Ooh, sorry you guys are sick. As for hurting your chances for implantation, that doesn't *seem* very likely. However, I am not basing that on any concrete info. But, I wouldn't worry about that! Hopefully, someone else some insight for you.

Take care of yourself and get well quick!

Tuesday Check-In:
Name: Slowtime
Date: 2/3/09
Cycle Date: cd 20, ? dpo
Appointments: n/a
Symptoms: Still getting lots of EWCM. I had a positive OPK on cd 15, but I didn't keep testing after that. Not sure what's going on.
Testing: Not right now.
Thoughts: My cycle is still a little screwy. I've always had a regular cycle, but I'm not sure what my new normal is. I've only had two periods since my miscarriage. I should've kept doing the OPKs.

N,: Wife and Wannabe AP Mamma. 11/08. 9/09. Wishing for a , but wondering if I should.

I think once your body has released the egg, and assuming it was fertilized, not much can interfere at this point. A very high fever might make implantation less likely, but I don't think that just feeling awful will affect your chances. Being sick shouldn't interfere with your endometrium, your progesterone levels, or anything else that I can think of. I'm sorry you are all feeling so badly, and I hope you all recover quickly.

As far as I can tell, the dotted line just means that the cross-hairs are "tentative". Once you actually have fertile quality CF and another temp jump that coincides with it, FF should revise your O date. You can also change the "Method" setting and see if that changes anything. FF says to use the "Advanced" setting, but I prefer and always use, the FAM setting. Good luck!

FF is whacky. Dotted line means they think you might have ovulated but cannot say for sure. Solid line means they are pretty sure you did because they have enough data to "confirm" it. Even after getting a solid line, it can change based on the data you enter so don't worry about it if you don't think you O'd yet. It just moved my solid line to a day later. One cycle, it moved my solid line 4 times :

thanks kparker and brinalicious!

I changed the method to FAM, but it still has the crosshairs. That's okay though, I'm sure it will probably change. It is good to know that it can move and change the O date, because I know that is not right how it is.

Also, I had been adjusting my temps a bit to correct for taking them at different times in the morning. I *really* need to figure out a way to get more consistent with taking them at the same time. So, I'm sure that could be throwing it off. Also, since my cycles are really wonky, there is a chance that I am no ovulating, and I read that anovulation can cause a lot of temperature fluctuations.

I guess I will see as time goes on. I just wish there was a way to get a real accurate temperature consistency. I wake up at different times. I will have to get that figured out so that I can be more confident in my temps.

Hey guys, I might not be on here for a few days. My friend losing her baby hit me pretty hard. I realized it could have been me. She went through so much to get pregnant why did it happen this way?? I just keep asking myself over and over. And If Im pregnant now its going to be VERY hard to tell her and to feel good about it myself after all this. Sorry, Im pretty debbie downer today

Kparker Hope your DH's SA comes back ok. DH had to do one before they would start me on Clomid. Thankfully his came back fine but it is still nerve racking waiting for the results.

Mom to JJ Sorry your all sick Thats no fun! Hope you guys get to feeling better soon.

Brin Good luck!!!

I set the alarm on my cell phone to go off at 5:25AM every morning and I just sleep with it next to my thermometer on the nightstand. I have the alarm tone set to a low kind of bell sound, which is just enough to wake me up, but not loud enough to startle me (or DH). I take my temp right when it goes off, and then usually go back to sleep for 30 minutes or so (I don't like to get out of bed before the coffee is made!). On the weekends, I sleep in more, so I just temp and then go back to sleep. I think it is important to get your temps taken at a consistent time so that you know the fluctuations are actually due to your hormones and not something else.
