Terrilein - Congratulations!

Isras1 - that definitely looks like a line to me... but I've never seen one IRL so maybe I'm not the best judge...

I am still obsessing (I tried to be in the no stress/no obsess/no test camp but I'm not good at that...) even though my gut feeling is that we totally missed it this month. Then again my gut feeling last month was that I was PG so my gut clearly cannot be trusted.

My chart is very weird though... strange temp dip

Finally pregnant with #1 and #2! Due September 9th, 2014

Laggie: that temp dip looks promising, I would be obsessing too!

well, THAT is heartening. I can't help but notice that the temp pattern is very similar to the charts where i conceived my two kids, too. fortunately, i'm too busy to test today (9dpo), will pick up some tests tomorrow and hopefully hold off using them until Fri. fmu (what are the odds of me exercising that much self-control?).

I tested this morning and it was a BFN. Then I put my temp in FF and it took away my cross hairs. I'm on CD39 and really discouraged. I guess I'll just wait until this weekend and if AF hasn't shown up by then I will test again.

big temp drop today. i'm trying not to be super bummed. i'll probably test anyway, but have pretty much written pregnancy off as a possibility.

Same for me. So even if I did happen to ovulate in there, I don't think we were successful. for both of us.

Yeah. I (of course) did not have enough self control to not test after I got home from the dollar store, lol. BFN. There's one little spot on the test that I keep pretending is the makings of a future line, but in reality I'm positive it's not. lol.

Sigh. Okay, shaking it off. Going to make a nice dinner for tonight and drink strawberry lemonade. Hugs, Evie's Mama.

I'm out... AF has made her appearance today.

And... I just discovered that the oregano oil I've been dosing myself with for the past 2 days has the ability to make menstruation start. Doh! Ah well, I'm sure it would have happened anyway...

On to November! Surely November will be the month

to the rest of you for BFPs soon!

Congratulations moonmamma22!


Feeling for you laggie, tolovemercy, and evie's mamma!


AFM: BFN this morning and yesterday too. I guess the very faint BFP was an evap, sigh. I am still having symptoms, but who knows, what with the havoc our hormones play on us! Either way, I'll know what's up when AF is due on Halloween. I am trying to remain hopeful and light hearted. Going to work tonight will help to distract me.

temp shot back up today? ....?? In my early-morning confusion (and my pre-existing conclusion that I am not, in fact, pg), I forgot to test with my fmu.

so, what does that mean?

HArd to say without a history of charts to look at. Some women don't have temps drop until after AF starts. Your temps have been kinda rocky and jumping up and down so it doesn't really indicate anything. But if you test tomorrow, 12dpo is a better chance of BFP than yesterday!

Thanks. I actually do have a couple other charts on FF, but hadn't thought to add them to the homepage. But, I only have the basic membership, so i only can post two. Anyhow, that other one I put up is rocky, too, because I've been bfing forever and beyond. The only other chart I have online is the one where I conceived DS2.

So, dum de dum. I don't really think I'm pregnant, but am anxious to get to a point where I can either start AF or test accurately.

I'm trying to remember, but I'm pretty sure I didn't get even a speck of a + test before 12-13 DPO with my kids. At the moment, I'm feeling inclined to wait to see if/when AF shows up. She breaks the news more gently than a BFN, imo.

ETA: IIRC, my temps always used to drop slowly, starting at 7-8 DPO. I charted for a year to prevent before we got pregnant with DS1. Not that that means anything really, but does make yesterday's temp seem weirder.

*obsessing*

Tested this AM with a BFN. Bah. Anyhow, as long as my temps/I don't see af, I will not be able to stop obsessing.

So, if (IF!) implantation did occur 10DPO, at what point would a test become positive?

Hi everyone,
I just joined the forum and I thought I could keep tolovemercy company with some obsessing of my own.

I'm 10DPO on my first IUI cycle and 12 DPtrigger. I've been testing daily to see when the trigger is out of my system, but so far it's been a whole lot of BFNs.

I'll find out for sure on Monday with a blood test, but that seems ages away right now.

I too will obesses with you...I am supposed to start the flo TODAY and I am freaking out. No sign as of yet of my visitor. However that is 100% normal. I never get any signs of period coming before it comes. Once its here I get crampy but thats it. I am going to buy a test today (a real one not a candian dollar rama one.) and pray...lol. a bfn test on wednesday night. no testing since.
Things that might be symptoms...(but in reality are just my imagination)
I can all of a sudden squeeze a tiny drop of bm out. I weaned dd a year ago and she weaned slowly. I have not be able to do that in ages...yes I know its probably hormones/stress but a girl can wish.
breasts feel fuller....
exhausted mere hours after being awake.
not as bloated as normal for a period.

This will all go down the drain in a few hours when aunt flo rears her ugly head but for now a girl can dream!!!

So a bit of this and to my uterous in hopes of stemming the tide and being with child.
Off to stuff my child full of oatmeal, and fruit and veggies in hopes she does not devour her weight in candy tonight....
