<gasp!> Pregnant women are always cute no matter how fat they are (I am round )! You're gonna be just as cute as the skinniest girls.

Aw, thank you shwarma! It's hard to think that bc I haven't felt cute in a year! But I have to admit you're right, at least when it applies to others, I always think pregnancy looks good on women!

Hi Can I be put in WTF is going on? please? Thank you!
My normally 30ish day cycle is now on day 44... I poas (early detection) on day 41 and it was negative, but still no AF. Major PMS for two solid weeks that has let up in the past couple days, though my boobs are still not quite normal and I feel all jittery (though that could just be the lack of exercise...). We weren't trying, but we were using withdrawal, which has failed once before for us. Anyway, I really have no idea "WTF is going on", though I'm starting to think my constant obsessing about it might actually be scaring AF away

You will look adorable! No matter what though, remember the end result is the same-- you will get a baby

Thank you Lauren31! This is a great thread and I'm excited to be here!
The concept of The One Thread is brilliant, by the way. I don't know why I didn't notice it before...
I don't know for sure that I O'd because I don't chart, but before last summer my period was really irregular and so was whether or not I got PMS, and from this I developed a theory that PMS meant I had O'd I know this is not necessarily true, of course, but it's the feeling I've had, like somehow the presence of the hormones that cause PMS must indicate the presence of the hormones that cause ovulation. Also, PMS usually means AF in a couple weeks for me. At least now that I've gotten used to having regular periods
So based on this theory that is still hanging around in the back of my mind, the PMS that I had for 2 weeks (and now has gotten milder) should mean that I did O, or at the very least that I am on the hormonal slope to AF, who just isn't showing... Also why I'm confused is that I keep getting crampy feelings in the past week but no blood at all. Cramps always mean period for me, but these just keep going away.

Have you tried homeopathic Blue, and black cohosh? I can't remember the genus species atm. I took 200c of both after I had DD, and part of the placenta was apparently retained, boy, was that painful. They really helped. I'll bet even 30c would help if you could find it.

I heard back from the Dr.s office. My beta was at 5. I have no idea what that means. She said, maybe yes, maybe no. I just keep looking at my bfp to make sure it is real. I think I will go throw it away rather that obsess over it.

Anyway, I am bleeding and heavily cramping now, so it doesn't matter.

weiss....:

and i'll have another : for me too. 13 dpo, temp still elevated, AF due on saturday. don't feel any different either way. although with dd i did have m/s on the day of implantation (i clearly remember feeling different and "as if i was going to puke on my shoes at any moment"), which was 5 days before i got my bfp. so that has me thinking AF will show. only time will tell....now if only i were a bit more patient, !

Update on me: I made a trek out to a local holistic pharmacy that carries Preseed and got a box of it. I made an acupuncture appointment for next Friday morning. I have encouraged DH to purchase a naughty magazine if he wants to. Hey, the temp isn't up--it ain't over till it's over!!!!

Hello ladies! I'd like to join your TTC thread here. Dh wanted to ttc#2 for two years now, but I wanted to wait...wait till dd was potty-trained, then wait till I get back to my pre-preg weight, always an excuse to wait! Well, I've been the same weight for 2 years now, so I figure I may as well just go for it!

I'm on CD15 (of ~33) so I can go in waiting to O!

Good luck everyone! :

I didn't have any symptoms when I got my BFP either, AND my temperature had dropped some. I did start to feel symptoms a couple of days later, but I can now say from experience that lack of symptoms that early doesn't really mean anything.
