Thanks Skeeter crazy emotions, this thing. Joy followed by doubt followed by joy, etcetera.
So I see you got your +opk yesterday? So you are maybe ovulating today? Great! How are things going, then?

The last FRER in the box- I won't keep posting these every day but just this once more! I am of course thrilled to keep seeing lines. I did think that the line would be darker by now though. Is it okay/usual/normal to have it still be this light at 14 DPO? Thanks for letting me obsess!

That looks really dark to me. Do they actually get any darker? Congratulations again!

Living happily and embracing adventures.

Oh yeah- I mean, I think they are supposed to get as dark as the control line eventually. I know it is so fine! It is so funny- I will soon let go of little obsessions like this, really!

Katie... I'll gladly help you obsess! I looked in the FF HPT/OPK gallery, and it looks like it's normal for it to very gradually darken this early. Here are some examples:
http://www.fertilityfriend.com/tg/entry/7610934.html
http://www.fertilityfriend.com/tg/entry/7610992.html
http://www.fertilityfriend.com/tg/entry/7611150.html
So your test looks great!!

michelle... I'm not an expert, but it looks to me like you may have O'd on Monday, which would make today too late. Did you BD before then?

AFM.... I'm curious if anyone has experienced this "sign," or perhaps an obsessing side effect. Last night, as I was lying in bed trying to go to sleep (I was exhausted and had been falling asleep on the couch prior to putting myself to bed), I felt like my uterus, maybe my whole pelvic area, was restless, anxious, antsy. I'm not sure if that makes sense. I wasn't cramping or in pain, but I felt like I was very "awake" down there, and it had me tossing and turning, as if I had cramps, but with no pain. Is this just because I'm obsessed? Have you ever experienced this?

I have the same thing going on along with some on and off slight crampy-ness. It has always been one of my early pregnancy symptoms. It just feels like something is going on in there. I have never experienced it when I was not pregnant.

Wow, I was figuring I was just a freak! Thanks, party_of_seven, you've made my morning!! Even if it doesn't mean I'm pg, I am in a better mood now, for sure! How many dpo are you? I'm at 9 today. Is this a common feeling?

I'm only 4dpo, but feeling pretty hopeful based on this one symptom and some extreme( and unexplained) exhaustion.

I was pregnant once before, and the extreme exhaustion was my first sign! Good luck to you!!!

I just told my DH about what I felt last night, and he told me that at some point during the night, he woke briefly to find me laughing, a long, drawn out, two-part laugh. ha! I don't remember dreaming anything funny, but I thought that was hilarious!

Can I come obsess for a bit? My thermometer is all right now so I'm not completely sure when I ovulated : . It's usually around day 14 or 15 so I'm going to go off that. Although it kind of seems like I may have O'd around CD 13 so . So I'm either 1, 2 or 3 DPO. That's so freakin' annoying not knowing which one.

We were going to wait until September to TTC but DH/we randomly ended up not following The Plan on CD 10 when we DTD. I've been having some cramping way low in my pubic area. Doesn't seem like the kind I usually get post O, about a week before AF.

Been having spaceyheadyness. Not sure how to describe this. Gah, gotta go! 3YO needs to eat right now. Sorry if this is kind of disjointed! :

I am not sure how to make this pic smaller nor how to post a link to it and have it work, so here goes nothing.. (this is suppose to be a thumbnail) I POAS today, this is one of three that came back with a faint line... BFP?? It was in the time limit that it appeared and it has pink to it. IRL, DH sees it too.. what do you think???\ http://i867.photobucket.com/albums/a...0/DSC06548.jpg

It looks too much like those "bfps" that had me all worked up last week and I've been let down way too hard from it. Do not get yourself worked up until it's a clear and visible positive.

Thank you for your honesty Mae!! I really do appriciate that. I am feeling pretty level headed about it.. If it is not my month, then we will try again next month, but it sure is fun to hope!

mommymac -- I don't see anything, but it's pretty blurry.... do you have a macro setting on your camera? That should let you focus up-close. Mine is denoted by a flower symbol on the camera.

Jenfl I tried darn near every setting, I can not seem to get a better pic.. The more I stair at the test and the longer it has been the more it looks a little indented... Probably just wishful thinking on my part We will see what the next couple days bring.. today is 12 DPO.

mommymac -- Ah, well. If it's a BFP, it'll look better tomorrow or the next day. I had a "wishful thinking" line on a Dollar Tree test at 10 or 11 dpo, too. I managed not to test today (13 dpo). Maybe I will tomorrow, though. But that's my last one this cycle! There's no more in the house, and I'm not going to the Dollar Tree again for a few weeks! (Well, except there's those FRERs, but they're just for ambiguous results on the $tree....)

I do kinda see something. I wouldn't get super worked up about it yet though. You might try a First Response and test again in the morning with FMU. If you are pregnant that hint of a line will get darker and darker.
