BHappy I got your link added

Still nothing on the pad but is there when I wipe. I am pretty sure it will get heavier as the day goes on.
What do you all think? Is it a chemical or do I have to have a clear bfp to call it that?
I have never felt more pregnant during a cycle than I did these last few days.

Laurie: Dang it! I tend to agree with Kristin that a line is a line, so maybe it was a chemical. Disappointing, but it still would be a good sign, yes? I'm still holding out hope that it's just a bit of spotting and that you'll get a darker line tomorrow. :

I agree a line is a line. It means some HCG was detected.

And, I can't remember if I told you all this mix of cliches I was amusing with myself with last month...but...it ain't over 'til the flow lady rains on your parade.

: : Massaginmommy! I'm still hoping that little one turns into a sticky bean.

Welcome back hsmamato2. I am so with you on the TWW being hopeful and restraining myself from chewing out parents who don't pick up their crying babies. I hope your return time here is short and fertile.

Well it has increased from just spotting to a very light flow.

Okay I am not calling this a flow yet it has pretty much gone back to just being on the tp. I need to wait and see what tomorrow brings.

Oh Laurie. So sorry about AF but you know a line is a line so it sounds like a chemical which is a good sign that you can get pregnant. Maybe you should have your progesterone level checked? or just try using the progesterone cream for a few months. My TCM doc. says it can't hurt to use it. So sorry about AF but I think it's a good sign of improving fertility.

I need to schedule some acupuncture. I used to use the progest cream from Emerita.
I did end up telling DH yesterday that I was spotting and that I was a week late. He said "that explains the test" I told him I got a slight line and asked if he would be totally freaked out if I was pregnant and he said yes. My response was that he does know it is a possibility each month. To which he said yes. He is on the don't ask don't tell plan of TTC and is okay with another baby but doesn't want to do anything other than not use protection to try to achieve that. IF it happens it happens is his philosophy.
Anyway, we did use preseed a few times during my fertile window. I am going to talk to TCM doc about the progest cream.

MM So disappointing. Little yeses to the silver lining of knowing you can get pregnant, but so not the result you wanted. I hope it helps lead you to a path to your little one.

Hello everyone! Thanks for adding me to the list! I just got back from a "recharge" weekend with the hubby in St. Thomas....so we are waiting to O...I'm on cd14, been ovulating around cd17 lately, so hoping it's any time now! I only found MDC AFTER the birth of #5, so I didn't have anyone to share the obsessing, temping, and testing joys of ttc with! Glad you are all here who understand!

me-45, DH-46, ds1-23, ds2-18, dd1-17, dd2-14, dd3-4....hoping for #6.....

Good luck, Thankful for five! (I have 5 as well and we are hoping for #6, too. )

I used to have the user name amydearmas but I didn't use that email account and had to change it- so now I'm homebirthy.

My DH (39) is taking Singular, a prescription drug for seasonal allergies and I am wondering if we should wait for allergy season to be over before we ttc. I also found out that he occasionally uses chewing tobacco and I don't know how that will effect his little swimmers, either. I don't know what to do. Any advice??

massaginmommy I am sorry AF found you. (I was following along with your updates on my Itouch, but couldn't post.) But that could only be a good sign, longer cycle and possible chemical. My fingers are crossed for a future pregnancy.

Karen1968! Congratulations!

can you update for me?

Rauri was born 16 aug 09

she was 8lbs 9.5 oz, went to hosp at 5cm (trying not to throw up from contractions...lol) and she was born less than a hour later.

i didn't push once! my body heaved her out..scared the crap out of me!!

my nipples are trashed and i have to have surgery for massive painful roids, had 2 hours sleep last night...and now up with ds because my husband "needs another 40minutes", but besides that and being a little moody and weepy.....I AM OVER THE MOON

she is wonderful....

mom to ds '07 first day of a new year, dd '09 in the caul, and  ds '11 at home Oct 24th

Welcome to the world Rauri!!! ::::

Enjoy your little one. And get some sleep ASAP!



AFM, I do believe I am back on track. Looks like it was a CD13 ovulation and I hope the fact that I woke up sick to my stomach means it was a healthy egg that is releasing lots of progesterone. Not doing any herbs this month during my LP as my TCM provider wants to "see what my body will do on it's own this month." I'll start progest cream tomorrow once ovulation is confirmed. I don't want to take any chances. I'll order the progesterone pills for next month.

Congratulations Saoirse!!! : : : Welcome to the world, Rauri!!

Sounds like a wild ride of labor. Happy, happy babymoon : And good wishes for good sleep moments.


AFM, my ovulation wait is getting as difficult as my TWW. I actually had a dream the other day that my temp shifted. When I really woke up it took a minute to realize I hadn't really temped. I'm CD18. Was hopeful the TCM would mean shorter cycles for me.

:: Welcome Rauri! ::

Congrats Saorise, enjoy your babymoon :


Waturmama Yeah, waiting for the O is as bad as TWW for me... I am usually day 18ish. Hang in there

Kristin : Hope you caught the golden egg.

Homebirthy aka Amydear I wouldn't wait... I'm worried about taking medicine and watching what I ingest but for some reason I don't worry about DH... I think drugs can do damage to the embyo because its cells are growing so fast and anything the pregnant lady takes, the embyo is going to be stewing in. If DH takes something bad, it damages the sperm cells and a damaged sperm cell isn't likely to survive the trip to the egg. That is my theory... I could be wrong.... gosh I hope not... *ponder,ponder,worry*

Thankfullfor5 St Thomas! Ah, I am so jealous. Good luck this cycle!

Thanks Lisa, I'm sorry that is your situation too, but it is somehow really nice to know I'm not alone.

I'm up late by myself now because dh was too exhausted to BD making this unappreciated delayed O all the more stressful. (Hey self! Trust! Trust! Remember? Trust!)

Amy, you can change your e-mail address for an account. Go to User CP, Edit details. It seems a shame to lose all that history.

Also, Amy, I'm not totally sure, but I believe I was taking Singulair while pg with ds (a very healthy guy!) and probably during conception. I remember asking folks if it was okay to take while breastfeeding and finding out it isn't good to take while bf. My guess is it's okay, but if you're concerned I'd keep looking into it until you are satisfied. Good wishes to find peace with that and hopefully an answer you like!
