I had a bunch of cramps with all my pregnancies in the beginning- so yeah- very normal! IN fact on my 4 m/c I never had any cramps- until after I started bleeding! So to me- cramps equal a growing and stretching uterus- and no cramps for me meant a pregnancy that was not growing right. As long as your crampiness is not severe then I wouldn't worry any. :-)

Maeryn-even if your cramps do feel very strong, that can happen too. I don't know what your other pgs were like, but with a couple of mine I thought worst AF ever was on its way... for weeks!

BelovedK-sorry still bfn... obviously there is hope thanks to Maeryn, right?

SimplyRochelle-I wanted to test since 1dpo this time, haha.

Kingsdaughter-I will check out your chart. This metal mouth has been going on for days, basically all the time! No matter what I eat or drink, after I brush (or don't brush) my teeth. Sheesh. If I am not pregnant I am sure going to feel like a fool...

That said, here is my interesting news of the day...

CALLING ALL TESTERS AND OBSESSORS.... I seriously need help interpreting this!

Tested this am FMU and bfn. Decided to PIAC with SMU and use up this last SFO strip I had, but bfn. However on both of these, again, after test, I can see the antigen strip, grey, but faint. So because I am getting crazed and disappointed I decide to OPK just so I can see 2 lines (they usually show at least a faint pink something I can look at, hehe)
I had the new ones still from babywishes, but found my last one from SFO so decide to just dip both! I walk away and imagine my shock when I return 5 minutes later and they are both blaring positive! WTH? Ladies, I am confused. But I confess, a bit hopeful. Confused because for the last several days my cervix is high closed and firm, defniitely NOT fertile. CM has mostly been creamy or sticky for several days... ( I never got/get dry up after O when breastfeeding, even when I conceived my DS.
Plus with my temps up (again they are not very high, leaving me to wonder about O, but I have to add that the last 2 which are lower I had to take at 5am because I woke up having to pee SO bad and could not go back to sleep and hold it, for 7am temp. Did not sleep more than 20-30 min after that so 7am temp not reliable either.

Ok sorry, family calling. Where was I? Oh yes, come to think of it, it is weird I had to wake up to pee at 5am last 2 days. Usually if I wake at 5, even if I have to pee I can hold it fine...or I don't have to go. Actually, I have to pee again! Already! SMU was just voer an hour ago. That is weird, usually I can go hours in the morning without having to go.

So i am confused because why would I get a positive OPK if I have already ovulated? And if I haven't, why would I get a positive OPK, if none of my other fertility signs are showing O is near. Especially because my charts think I already O'd.... I do not have PCOS. I have taken many OPKs in the last month and I know that I do not get positives, except for right as this shift on my chart that shows O, occurred.

But i am hopeful (doh!) because of the whole OPK as HPT I have heard about. I have read peeonastick.com and she says that usually OPKs would turn pos during pregnancy, but usually not until you would get a positive on a HPT, so kinda pointless. I wonder what anyone else's experience has been? If that was true, would it still be so popular as a 'myth' or whatever?
I also got ferning again today on the saliva scope. Full. Again, a fertility sign of being close to O. But I had only 1 day of full ferning before now, (yes I am still checking) and that was just before my temp shift. I remember reading on the reviews of the saliva tester that one woman hypothesized that it would show ferning again if the woman was pg. It did and she was.

Couldn't resist taking a pic of my OPKS to show you, so will post it here shortly. Anyway, it's fun having SOMETHING positive to stare at. Or maybe it's just me.

I did save my cup of SMU and its calling to me. So far only real faint gray shadows, but I have not yet dipped this pee with a new 10-15 sensitive IC. Sooo. WWYD?
Should I dip it?

That sounds cool about the OPKs I would test again tomorrow (Well, I would test today, but I am crazy ) I might pick up a few OPKs at the DT today when I go to get more HPTs (a bit later. I plan to hold my pee until this early evening and test again. I am still feeling crampy, am in such a limbo state. My house is a mess, and I have so much to do (costume to sew, must finish by next weekend) and I am also making a strata for dinner tonight. I did drink coffee today, I wasn't thinking about the preggo factor, I guess I should hold off until at least 14dpo if I am still getting BFNs.

I swear, if I am not preggers I am doing a cleanse this month.

So, I'm out. AF reared her ugly lil head this morning. ugh.

But I'm better prepared this month. At least now I have a general idea of when I O. So I can be sure to bd every freakin day that week.

And my sister got her a week ago. I'm happy for her, but it's frustrating. Good thing is she is being very supportive and helping me keep hope for this cycle.

Oh, of course.

Here are the pics as promised.

First, the 2 pos OPKs, 7-10dpo, SMU
http://i744.photobucket.com/albums/x...0/DSC02179.jpg

Then my last SFO hpt strip, same SMU, in natural light
http://i744.photobucket.com/albums/x...0/DSC02180.jpg

Here is the babywishes, supposed to be super sensitive HPT dipped in same SMU
at about 10 min, in natural light. I could see *something* but is hard to see here, I think.
http://i744.photobucket.com/albums/x...0/DSC02181.jpg

Here is same test again, right a minute later in indoor light:
http://i744.photobucket.com/albums/x...0/DSC02187.jpg

And a few more pics, taken between 12-30 minutes, same test

Sorry I went a little crazy with the picture taking! But was excited and of course wasted my one and only FRER. Obvious BFN. But if I look close, I can see just the faaaaaintest shadow, lol.

Were cycle buddies!! Im 4dpo and dying to start testing and obsessing over my tests!!! Im determine to wait until at least 7dpo, if i see a temp dip though I will hold off a little. I had a BFP at 10dpo on IC when i was preg with second DS, and it was a blaring BFP. So fingers crossed for my BFP this cycle!!

Yeah that was way too many pics, lol. So you don't think the evap/whatever line on the IC HPT means anything?

Getting to BDing... Well that's the thing. I would but my other fertility signs like CF are not lining up. I have barely creamy CF here and a closed firm cervix.

I just wanted to let all of my fellow test & obsessers know that I put my BFP story up in the TTC in our 20's thread. I was VERY surprised to get a BFP after getting a BFN on an FRER digital at 12dpo. Maybe my O date was off, although I doubt it. I was not a big believer that it was possible to get a BFP after a BFN on an FRER at 12 dpo. I'm happy to have been proven wrong.

Tara did that IC have any colour to it? It's hard to tell from the photo's. If it's an evap, it's a pretty nasty one! I think I maybe see something on the FRER too...

Looking forward to hearing your result in the morning BelovedK. Unsure what the time difference is between here and there, but I'm heading to bed soon so hopefully I'll see good news

AFM I had some very very light spotting yesterday. Like so light that it wasn't even pink, it was more yellowy/orangey tinted CM. Today there has been none whatsoever. I'm approx 10DPO today. Tested with FMU and SMU but BFN's. Will test with the same tomorrow!

Well, I'm going to be honest and admit that this is a BFN but I thought I saw something (not sure if it has color though) I may just be seeing things, at any rate, it should be darker (if it is a line) by 12dpo.

http://i68.photobucket.com/albums/i9...DSCF5368-2.jpg

Yep, pretty upset I really thought this month was it.

(I'm still going to test later today though just in case) I may use my smu and test soon. I just can't accept this )

ETA, I just tested again with SMU and it looks the same, when I hold it in some lights I can see a faint shadow, but no color that I can detect. I wonder if I should take a picture?

well... dont look at the tests after 10 minutes!

but still...

my early bfps on my ICs were so light and did not show up until after all the ink had passed off the test so I thought they were evaps too

Kingsdaughter-I don't know about you, but I am maybe going for brand name tests here on in. I remember that I never got a bfp before 11-13 dpo (not sure which I was). My ICs never gave me pink until the FRER did. I hate to blow the dough, but I hate to be uncertain too.

BelovedK- totally see something on the SMU one! Any color there?

Melly- could not see any pink to my line yesterday. A line again today but fmu, fainter, still can't see pink. Yes mine are after the ink has all passed too. The light spotting at 10 days in and no more is an awesome sign!

Maeryn- got in bd last night...

Got another pos OPK today, and the faint evapish line today again on the HPT. Feeling like I need to spring for (just 1) more pack of FRER. To use 1 a day for a few and see what's what. Temp higher today. Metal mouth continues. Some crampy feelings down low. It is not my imagination that I am peeing more today and yesterday. Finding it hard to hold long enough- 3-4 hours to do test! Weird. And had a few dizzy spells the last 2 days. One good one just now. Being a bitch to DH for 3 days. Could be pms, could be pg...

I'd spring for the FRER too Tara. That was my plan today but it looks like I'm out. Started spotting red today which is normal for me on 11DPO. AF usually starts on 12DPO after a day of light spotting...

Noticed the smell of my daughter's hair conditioner kinda making me feel sick since last night. That's never happened before. Thinking of posting pics of my opk and strip from today.

Melly-(hug) so sorry dear
