When announcing a BFP please use : in your post. I don't mind if it's used in other posts but that way I don't overlook anyones pregnancy.

Also for the sanity of the rest of us, tell us how many dpo your first BFP was and link us a pic if you can

If, for whatever reason, you need removed from our BFP list just send me a private message saying "remove me" and I will, no questions asked.

"It's too early for that to be a temp drop for you. it's implantation and in two days you can see a line! "Quote to me from Lauren31

Yes! Let's believe that! Thank you
And of course thanks to everyone else too. what would I do without others who know how this feels?!!

Also I have my great dh.

Okay- enough of a Katie Pity Party.
How is everyone else?

Well, I have to tell myself that expecting the worst does not make the best happen, it just makes you feel down on yourself. Therefor, I would expect the best and the more positive vibes you put out there, the more you are going to get back!

this month i feel hardly anything at all... some very light nausea and fatigue and sore nipples, but two months in a row so far that has meant nothing but AF. and my $ tree test was soooooo fricking white this morning... no hint of any kind of line at all.

and i have the worry that if this month didn't work, DH might not want to try next month and then *i* might not want to try for a few months after that because we may be moving next summer and i don't want to be 9 months pregnant during a move!

i hate the waiting game!!

p.s. lauren every time i look at your chart i feel happy, because your post-O temps have a couple little dips in the 2ww and you still got your BFP. maybe my dip today is just one of those random things! COME ON BABY! you've got a really fun family just WAITING for you....

Thanks so much to everyone who sees my lines. I might go get a digital tonight to prove it to dp, that's a good idea.

So I've already called my mom and told her I "might" be pregnant. She asked if I would be testing again in a week or two to make sure. I was all like, "Mom, I'm gonna be testing everyday until it's dark, dark, dark."

Oh and I called the midwife cause there's a waiting list here and I'm on the top of it, now. Yay! She's gonna call me back later and let me know if they've worked me in. :::

Maeryn, they don't look like evaps to me. Mine were always sort of white-ish and were obviously not real lines. Maybe that's just my experience, though?

ttc #2!

lol malinda... i also can't imagine waiting a week and testing again. i am not a waiter!

MP, even if every canyouseealine person thinks it's an evap, you would know the best since you're seeing them in person! a lot of the ones where i do see a line, there are always people who vote no. maybe some people go through and vote no on every one they see - you never know! i bet lots of people feel spiteful when looking at sites like this, just like on hotornot.com and such.

blech my hope goes up, then down, then up, then down

I just want saturday to get here so i can either get my af or a "PREGNANT"

and omg dd has me giggling, she's singing "SHAKE MY BOOTEH SHAKE MY BOOTEH" from whatever show or movie it was from... and shaking it actually quite well for an almost 4 year old (and thank goodness in more of a mocking way than a sexual one)


oh and :

On FF, below your chart.


and omg i just had another "sign"

something that hasn't happened since pregnant with DD... white flashes in my eyes (my blood pressure was fine while getting them too, they kept a close watch on it because of the flashes)

Just randomly had a few... i'm so excited now! I have NEVER had that happen when not pregnant!

I hate the early pregnancy signs thing!!!! I had an 88 last month and I was so hopeful and then I totally got my flipping period and I was super depressed. I'm not indulging this month, no siree.

BTW, Mae, I agree with YYYM on the canyousealine votes. Some of the tests are absolutely, undoubtedly positive, and they've got "no" votes!

I'm off to take an OPK (hopefully the last one... for a long time!). I've had 3 days of positives, and I'll be shocked if I haven't O'd yet...

Du says it's still really early so it's ok my tests are light. I so wish I could show them off! I'm having like no symptoms. Just sore boobs and bad cramping and like uterus tugging but no naseua and I usually have crazy ms. Oh and I am super tired. I just so want this to be a sticky baby!! But again dh says it's super early. It is right??

I've got tugging, cramping, major lotion-like cm... can't handle the "heat" and its only 73 degrees out!

but no nausea or puking which i was doing by now with both dd and ds... but not with baby #1 that I lost at 13 weeks, that one didnt start until almost 8 weeks along... so maybe it was the daddy? (dd and ds had a different daddy than baby #1... and not df)

Only because I got a new digital camera yesterday and I am having so much fun posting pictures on the web, I decided to share a photo of my 2 bfn's form today! Dh is like, "Why are you doing that?!" Just for amusement, I don't know. I also recently joined facebook and posted a bunch of my garden pictures today- just cause it is fun to play with my camera and put stuff online!

I see no hint of lines on either of these. I don't expect anyone else to. Just for fun I guess!
http://i725.photobucket.com/albums/w.../7DPO005-1.jpg

anyway- I have heard that people who get bfp's on 7 DPO say they are surprised how early they got it. So it is still early for me.

Okay- also then, here are some garden pictures from today, just for fun! These are my gardens

I may not leave these up forever as I get pretty vulnerable about sharing personal actual stuff online sometimes! but I am happy to share them right now.
