the funny thing about FETA is that I ate at a greek restaurant with some girl friends on Saturday, and my husband is addicted to feta. So when I went, I bought a whole block of it! We haven't gotten into it yet, but it's like "NO! I WANT TO HAVE SOME!!!" because I totally <3 feta.

Feta is one of those cheeses that doesn't last forever, so eat it already!!!

Lauren Don't worry about Nyquil, wine, etc this early. The placenta starts working later and then you expose the baby.

noraflood I'm so sorry.

I feel so, so, so nervous about testing...I'm so afraid that I'm going to get a BFN. It's not hard for me NOT to test, it is hard for me fathoming the results.

I think I'm going to take a break from the boards for the rest of the night and tomorrow (It's going to be HARD!), but I'm just going to relax, not think about BFPs or BFNs...

11DPO: had a great day, normal energy, mild cramping (nothing that I would have noticed if I wasn't sitting down thinking about it), bbs are getting bigger and not so sore, aversion to food (ate because I had to), thirsty at points, creamy CM, very yellow/orange U (thinking it might be due to the Prenatals I'm on and/or the green tea I drank...which I drink every day, but never has these results), mild heartburn...

I don't know what to think. I always turn off the Early Pregnancy Indicator on FF because I really hate seeing the number it's at...mainly because I don't want to be let down (it's at 85 right now). My chart looks amazing, but scares me...I don't want to get my hopes up.

*sighs* I'm really scared of being let down. If I don't think about it, I'll be good to go.

Mariacm, don't test until Thursday! That's when I'm testing too with FMU.

See y'all on Thursday, first thing in the AM...hopefully I'll have some good news.

and for all...

Nora,
I'm so, so sorry. I know what you're going through. We had a chemical pregnancy in December, then got pregnant again right away, then lost that one after two months. It's so hard. Please take hope in what I firmly believe is true: you're more fertile after a m/c. I'm putting my money in that bank right now, too.

weiss...you are wise. i could not stand it and tested this am with fmu and it's negative. oh well. this is our first month ttc, so i sort of expected this. it's just part of the process of me trying to sort out my : .

i am only 12dpo but i used a FRER test, so i feel it is pretty reliable. i am just going to be patient waiting for AF and if no AF, i'll test again next week.

and for all...
I'm 12DPO today, and was tempted to test this am, but my temp was down to 98.0 so I didn't... will test tomorrow still. I'm scared to test, though - scared I'll get a BFN. Last night I checked CP just to know, and got a bit of pink... but then it was gone, like maybe it was just me irritating the cervix by checking (it was really low and firm and closed). And then we were lying in bed before going to sleep, and I had the slightest feeling of fluttery abdomen... but htat's hard to interpret. Usually the 1st day of AF or several hours before it starts, I get a sort of sick feeling in the lower abdomen, not pain and not nausea but just a bit queasy uncomfortable. Well last night it felt sort of like that, but a bit different, like I wondered if I sat up would it turn into nausea from the flutteriness. Anyway it went anyway after a few minutes. Then we BD'd and I figured if AF were imminent that would help it along, but nothing so far today. Then today my temp went down 0.3 degrees, which is still well above coverline, but made me wonder if AF is imminent. However I don't have the usual tender BB's that come before AF. Ugh! I'm so confused!! I hate the TWW!!!! Hopefully I'll know tomorrow what's going on... and hopefully it won't be AF.

Thanks for the new thread Lauren31!!! Can you please move me to 'waiting to know' though my time there might be short lived. Last couple of days temps been low:
We found out we have to move, so I've been demoted to lurker as of late - but I super love reading you ladies!!!
Also, even though I'm a die hard chart by hand-er, I broke down and joined Fertility Friend so I could chart share. Here's the link: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/ttc/index.php
Thanks again!
