No internet while you're away? I'd go nuts. Lol.
Ask for a STAT beta! It usually only takes a few hours. I'm still waiting for the results of mine today, anxiously.

When you live too far from the lab (like I do) thats just not possible. Myself if I want one sooner, I have to drive all the way to the hospital (2 towns over) to have it done. And unless its an emergency (such as possibly ectopic) they would find no reason to do such.

Well lol ok back from work... lol I'm a nurse on a women's surgical floor lol so here's my thoughts lyndz.

If your chart is truely accurate... (i think maybe a couple days later on O... but I"m new at charting so not sure)...

Anyways I'd be worried about so many seemingly light positive tests and not one good positive. If you are indeed pregnant (which I suspect) you need to get your numbers done. Because if they aren't going up quick enough you could have an ectopic pregnancy. (usually those don't double). So I'd call your doc and say I have gotten multiple light pregnancy tests i've been charting so I know my dates and I think something isn't right could I get some labwork to figure out what is going on. Most docs will be ok... don't lie lol that makes it harder for them to trust you in the future.

That being said... holy crap am I nauseous today. like ALL day long. Its pretty yucky. And my temp went up today too here is my chart http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1c0fa4

Ooh mae I'm excited for you tomorrow!!

Rylee what did your FRER say?

Aaaaahhhhhhhrrggghh!
How am I ever going to survive the next 2 weeks???!!!

Just got my IUI done today and feeling the urge to test just so I can stare at two little lines, even the false ones that would undoubtably come from my trigger shot!

Ok, deep breath.... In ... Out.....

This is gonna be hard

oh it was a stark white test. i lol'ed about it, actually...
of course i poas 3-4 days before AF is due, in the middle of the afternoon, after drinking a coffee and peeing 45 minutes earlier.

so that was a huge waste of 8 bucks. hahaha.
oh well...i'll poas on the 22 or the 23 i suppose if AF isn't here yet.
in the MORNING.

Rylee, I so would try again in the morning... I was so cheap, I peed on the same stick again with DS a day later and it showed the second line... Btw today I saw the FRER really cheap at Walmart (don't like the place, but money doesn't exactly grow on trees!)...

Anyway, what do you think about those tests here:
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...CV6C6&v=glance
Did anyone try them? I cannot find the sensitivity... We are currently neither trying nor avoiding, letting things happen, but will actively try by March (I got some ovulation sticks for that already)....

ive tried them knowing 100% im not pregnant and not even gotten a questionable line (sort of a control, to test that)

Adorkable- I say go for it! I tested each day (sometimes twice ) after my trigger. I wanted 1) to see what a positive test would look like and 2) to know the *moment* the hcg was gone so that I would know any positive after that point was *real*. I saw if you have some $store or internet cheapies give in to that oh, so, primal urge!!!

Mae- Have fun...don't do anything I wouldn't do (remember Santa's jolly because he knows where all the bad girls live!)... Thanks for the song! That rocks!

Lyndzies- Hang in there! Wow. This is tough. I'm praying for you...

I missed my call from the doctor's office today--my phone only rang 1 time before answering machine picked up so I don't have my progesterone results. Oh, well. I guess that's what Monday is for, huh? I'm totally setting myself up for future disappointment by focusing on the fact that next cycle will be the one! Oh, well, it's making for nice thoughts now...

Yeah I couldn't really not test, 1$ was surely worth the joy of having a BFP to meditate on! And ok this is sad, but it looked so pretty... Yeah I know sad

anyway I'm sure I'll test every other day at least till it is bfn again and go hog wild.

For right now I'm just dealing with O / IUI cramps like hell. So a glass of wine advil and a heat pad are my friend right now, hopefully a last goodbye to all three

nia - I get mine on Amazon from Formosa Med - same price as those - They look exactly the same and they're also 20mIU/ml.

Jenne - Boo on the missed phone call. I hate having to wait on stuff like that over the weekend. Hopefully the results are worth waiting for.

ryleeee -

Adorkable - I would have done it too .. and over and over again

mae - I missed the actual post but think I saw that you're definitely reuniting with your DF? Wonderful news.

turnquia - I dunno, I think that 15dpo (if that is what I am. If there's a chance I O'ed on CD20, then I'm 11dpo) is still a little early to be really worried about much of anything. As obsessed as I've been, I do know that, for some women, it's still early for ANY BFP let alone light BFPs.

Your chart looks good so far! And I think the yucky nauseous feeling is a great sign! FX for you.

Jenne - thanks for the prayers!

I am so impressed by your attitude re: missing the phone call! I'd be so frustrated. But you're right, you'll be able to talk to them on Monday.

Oh, and although I know what you mean about setting yourself up for disappointment (I do it every month!) but it's the only thing that keeps me going...

AFM - I'm so proud of myself. I didn't test yet today! I just temped, pee'd and then got myself some tea. I kinda want to see how the morning goes (usually I get AF by noon on the 15th day, if a 14 day LP). So I'm just sitting here in a holding pattern. Temp's still up today. Don't FEEL like AF is on her way, but who knows. Bbs hurting more today. Cream (no tinge) CM.

Aaaaannnnnd... that's about it.

Happy WEEKEND, everyone!!!

Lyndzies, you're killing me, test already!! I am snowed in (over a foot ) and I need something to obsess over I am following you from the BSL thread. I hope you test this afternoon when you are more likely to get a good line

Lyndzie I meant more if it keeps up... and your leaning towards being 15DPO and say it keeps up for another week or more. LOL because man If I were in your shoes I'd be going nuts! I'm 9DPO and man I'm already wanting to pee on another test. I've been nauseous bad for 3 days. (worse than any of my other pregnancies) and the stomach flu is going around but i have none of those other symptoms.

Okay, well... yesterday's test was a BFN. Nothing to report. Today, though... it's a faint faint FAINT maybe. I think. Unless I'm making up invisible lines!

I'm 10 DPO today, temps still up.

Don't pay attention to the dent/dark spot next to the control line. Annoying, but that's not the line I'm seeing.

Do YOU see a line??

Beloved - if no AF, I'll probably POAS this afternoon. About to come over to BSL and post in a second.

turnquia - I gotcha! Yeah, if I'm still in this situation 4 days from now (because that would account for if I O'ed on CD20) THEN I'll start being more "WTF????" and call my OB.

MI_Dawn - I TOTALLY see what you are seeing, girl! it gets darker!!!!!!

MI_Dawn maybe... yay hope to hear good news from you by the time I get back too!

Will be starting to pack up soon. DFs mom invited us to go swimming before we go meet DF and his brother at the airport. (This is, to say the least, a very odd invitation for me. I think it will be the first time in my entire life to go swimming in December. In Chicago, no less!)

I dont have much packing to do, of course, since we will just be staying at the hotel tonight then going to my dads house tomorrow... but I still have to remember: holiday clothes, swim suits, Christmas gifts for my dads house and most of all my THERMOMETER!!!!!!

Man, this thread is busy! I feel so out of the loop here being waiting to O still.

Lyndzies, soooo can't wait for you to POAS!

MI_Dawn, I totally see it!! Test, test, test!

I'm going back to twiddle my thumbs and live vicariously through those of you who are testing. Fortunately, I ordered a bunch of tests a few days ago, so that gives me some other kind of obsession outlet. That, and the mountain of holiday prep stuff that I have to get done.

Baby dust to all!!! Keep posting.

So, how long til you pee?

AFM- I'm anxiously waiting for O day to get here so I can anxiously await 6dpo so I can start testing. That being said, if 6dpo ends up being before the new year I'll wait til the morning of Jan 1st to test. I think. DH has said that since a won't be under the tree, it would be cool to ring in the new year with one. I agree.

Oh! A quick temp question- I temped an hour later than usual this AM. But I got about the same amount of sleep before waking. Should I leave it as is or should I edit the temp?

Thank you

I am so excited... this will be the first time I ever get to spend Christmas WITH him... before we had to do opening presents while on the phone with him so he could hear their reactions... and last year we ended up giving them several of their presents just after thanksgiving (including an xbox 360 thats really mine but they get to play too lol) just so he could be here for them to hug.

Oh man.... barely over 12 hours until he is in my arms again! Spending 4 days with him in November was such a tease... at least this time I get 14 days with him!

Okay, I'm back. Someone please talk me through a very minor freak out.

I woke up this morning (CD12) with EWCM, but very calmly and rationally reminded myself that LAST cycle I also had EWCM on CD12, followed by a minor temp spike (for two days, which I eventually discarded), but did not actually ovulate until CD25 or something.

So anyway, I just went potty again and had yet another patch of very, very stretchy EWCM. I don't have any OPKs, and don't have a car this morning, and also just ordered like 100 opks, so hitting the $tree isn't actually feasible.

In addition, there is literally NO time to BD today. I guess maybe late tonight. I'm worrying. And, if my temp gets any lower, I'll probably die tomorrow.
