Me too!

I'm obsessing already. My husband actually asked me "Honey, why are you squeezing your breasts?" *snerk* I'm only 4-5 DPO for pete's sake, but I'm checking for symptoms.

I really REALLY didn't want to obsess, but this being our first attempt TTC, I'm realizing that mindset was naive. LOL.

I wasted 3 IC tests already (on 7, 8, and 10 DPO (i.e. today)... BFN, obv.). I'm trying not to let it get me down because I know it was early. I still have hope, and am obsessing over every little symptom. I'm pretty happy w/ my timing and my temps so far, so IMO, it's not over till AF!!

GL to everyone else in the TWW (MaerynPearl, I'll be interested to hear what your "symptoms" are! LOL!)

Hi! I would like to join in if I can. I am 8dpo and wanted to test the day after O. Stupid, but I feel like this is torture...waiting and waiting.... I broke down and tested, even though I knew it would be negative. Why do the tests have to be so cheap at the dollar store? I just feel like I can test and toss, test and toss...lol! I feel like a wasteful maniac.

I also, of course, pay attention to every....single....twinge/pang/cramp...and blog them. It will be fun to see in retrospect. I have had two drops in temp, but not below baseline. 4dpo and today.

This is my first actual 2ww, so this is new to me, all 4 times I have been pg it's been a surprise. I do have a lot of pulling/crampy/pangy feelings in my lower abdomen....very vivid dreams, and two bloody noses. (not normal) I have been paying a lot of attention in the last few months since my m/c's so I know this isn't normal....butttttt that doesn't mean anything!

I am on progesterone supps and they are gross...just so you know. It's hard to monitor cm when using them too.

Congrats to all of you who have your bfp's!

Dull pangs in the right ovary... still... comes and goes. Could be anything... 5-6 DPO now (depending on whether you're looking at FF or Ovusoft...) and obsessing... of course I am... of course...

ArtsyHeartsy, I agree. The cheap-ness of HPTs really does nothing to help our obsession. Only feeds it.

AFM, temp drop today. Still .3 about coverline, but I'm not happy about it. However, it's probably not worth it to stress about this since it's CD 11 and this could be implantation, right? Gahhhh... please just humor me. (x posted)

I posted here over a week ago about well, testing early and what not. Well, i guess I didn't really O when I thought. I thought I O'd on the 19th of June (no temping, it's too stressful for me and DH) but I was using OPK's. So I'm going to assume i geared up to O and didn't O because AF didn't show and I'm clearly NOT pregnant. Not sure why I would expect my cycle to be normal, I just had my first PPAF on June 1st after my son was born in July last year. So here i am on CD 38 waiting for O or AF or something to happen (I prefer NOT the latter of course) and I kinda feel like I O'd on Friday night/Sautrday morning time frame (we shall see). I did go from EWCM to a ton of creamy on Monday tho, so that's a good sign I guess. I'll keep you posted tho.

Congrats to all the BFP's!!!

1dpo... symptoms? backache, crampy and SUPER hungry. Couldnt temp the past few days but I am positive I oed. My temps should be up tomorrow morning from where they usually are to prove it.

Its so much fun to do this when I KNOW Im not pregnant. You wouldnt think so but it is!

Yay! temp went back up this AM! Higher than usual on 12 DPO, so hopefully this is good news. Also perhaps the FAINTEST of faint li .... ooh, I'm not even going to say it! Don't want to jinx anything. Let's just say it's really tempting to go pick up a FRER. (x-posted)

We shall see! *twiddles thumbs*

I hope this is your month!

I'm 8-9 DPO and I'm soooooo trying to keep away from the sticks. I think I should tell DH to hide them or something. I'm so impulsive.

MaerynPearl, sorry you're not feeling well.

GL to everyone else in this agonizing TWW.

AFM, I'm 13 DPO. AF is due tomorrow. I had another teeny temp rise today, and my chart is officially looking different than my other ovulatory charts... (http://fertilityfriend.com/home/lyndzies) but I can't seem to pee a BFP. I had what I thought were faint lines on ICs yesterday, but tested in the afternoon w/ a FRER and BFN for sure. This morning used another IC, and the same very very faint line... evap? It came up w/in the time limit (and photos below were snapped in the time limit).

I'm wondering IF I'm MAYBE pregnant, if perhaps my chart indicates that I implanted on 11 DPO and that there just isn't enough HCG to really show up yet? Bleh, this is an awful wait! Thanks for taking a look (and tweaking, if you feel like it) my pics. I swear there's something slight there IRL, although posting them here makes me feel like a crazy person.

Original
Inverted

Still holding out hope. My bbs are very tender (could be pre-AF) but I have this other strange symptom, too... after I eat (this is gross, sorry) I don't feel nauseated, but I do burp and feel like a little "comes up" if you know what I mean... like I could puke if I was near a toilet. :P

your chart looks good!!! and your symptoms sound great too - i had that light nausea/burpiness super early on with DD! i am AWFUL at detecting lines unless they are glaringly obvious, but hopefully other people with better eyes will give you opinions.

afm 4 dpo and i am feeling blah about my chart. a quick search through the FF chart gallery for pregnancy charts with low post-O BBTs has ever so slightly cheered me up, and so have some of the BFP charts on here... gah, i hate how crazy i drive myself with temping, but i can't seem to take a break without driving myself MORE crazy. then i feel dumb for letting one stupid number on a thermometer get me so down. SIGH.

Well, I'll just keep feeling positive about the symptoms and the temps, then. And it's okay that you don't see any line. I wholeheartedly expect to be told that I've got crazy goggles on!

I feel the same way! And I'm probably not going to get an accurate temp tomorrow, which is driving me NUTS!!! My good friend... hehe, my KD, actually... hosts an open mic but he's out of town so I told him (a while ago) that I'd cover for him while he's away. The open mic, if there's good attendance goes till the bar closes (2:00 a.m.) so my sleep/waking time is going to be all kinds of wonky!

MaerynPearl, thanks for the tweak! I'm cautiously optimistic.

Do you think it's even worth it to poas anymore today, or should I just be a good girl and wait? LOL!

if you DONT drink a bunch first and hold your urine for several hours (4+) then I see no reason not to pee on a cheapie... but save your urine when you do the cheapie because if that one shows another line... im going to beg you to do a FRER LOL
