So, looks like I will be 10-12 DPO on Christmas morning (not sure exactly yet when I O'd....awaiting the verdict on FF). Does anyone want to join me and hold off until Christmas morning to test? Can you just imagine how much more joyous of a morning it could be?

I'm testing Christmas Eve only because I know how totally bummed out I get if I get BFNs and I want a day to get used to it... but I'll probably be testing Christmas morning too!

I also think I will be ready to test on Christmas, but I have a bad track record for spotting and cramping leading up to AF that makes it clear I'm not preg so if that happens, I might not test because it will make me feel too sad to see the BFN. But at this point I am hopeful and if all goes well, I would definitely test on Christmas!!!

I wish I could wait that long with you guys, but there's no way I can take it that long If I make it to the 20th I'll be amazed.

I will be checking in though, to see some BFPs!!

Xmas morning will be 15dpo (ish) I won't be able to hold out that long, although that would be a great time to test. I o'd either 12/9, 10, or 11. So I think I will start testing Sunday which would be 9-11dpo. But I won't be disappointed with a bfn until Xmas eve I think.

FF says my period will be due on the 31st. So i guess I will be testing around C-mas because I am obsessive.

I will be 14 days PO and my LP is usually 11 days, so I will 'know' before that, but am thinking of waiting until Christmas day if AF doesn't show up by then.

Good luck to all of you ladies!

I haven't decided. I will be 12 DPO on Xmas and would LOVE a Christmas miracle.

We have fertility issues and less than a 5% chance of conception w/o assitance, so I generally dont post here---since we have not have a BFP in 2 years of TTC. I am blessed to have 4 yr old DD through IVF!

DH said he was very proud of me for not wasting money peeing on sticks so far this month. I still have to make it Christmas though, in case I ovulated late. After six months, I let it go and didn't do OPK's this month. So we shall just see where the winds blow.

I'm in! I'll be 14dpo on Christmas. But I probably won't test. Too much psychological turmoil for me! The hoping a BFN is really a BFP is not good for me.

This was my first month charting, so perhaps we BD too early in the month... Still hopeful.

Hello ladies! I am going to be 12DPO, December 22nd. I'm going to test then, and if I get a BFN and still don't see Ms. AF, then I will test on Christmas morning for sure!

Good luck to all of you.

Hello! I am have been away from these forums for awhile. I must say I have always loved MM and have got very busy with my kids and life. I been on OS awhile, and am not finding it very helpful lately. Many issues there. Besides, Mothering feels soo much more homey and in line with my attachment parenting instincts and worldview. I am a EBFing, baby-led-weaning, non-vaxing, cosleeping, babywearing, noncircing, nonviolent Ojibwe Buddhist mama. I hope this is an okay place to introduce myself (again). I was drawn by the title of this group cause I have been dreaming of a Xmas BFP myself. I have been doing ecological bf with my DS who turned 1 last month. Yet I am ready for another!

1st PPAF has not yet returned for me, but I have been charting my fertility (sorry, are you guys familiar with TCOYF? ) again for 2 months and getting lots of gear ups from my body, fertile CF, and twice I thought I O'd earlier and didn't. I am afraid to be hopeful, but have been doing OPK's for a few weeks and got what seem really positive tests a few days ago. My temp dived 2 days ago and I had O pains. Now it is technically above the coverline the last 2 days. Once again I am hopeful of O if it rises and stays high... if so I will only be 7 or 8 dpo on Christmas but I am of course planning to test (bit of a poas addict here) then. While not likely of accuracy so early, I have seen it happen! Forgive this book of an intro, and thanks for reading! I am excited to meet you all and wish you all BFP's!

Nanatte56- Thank you so much! I hope you get your Christmas BFP too!

bless- hi there!

sorry not many personals today. Not starting off as a good buddy, am I?

AM alas, temp down today (after up 2 days) so my cautious hope has dwindled. Looks like no O. What is with those OPK (positive-or?) tests! Not going get Answer kind again. so unless something miraculous happens, I can't test with you guys on Xmas.
