So, I tested this morning and for my New Year, a 11DPO, I got a little tiny faint positive. On an FRER none the less... I've had two chemical pregnancies, so I'm cautiously hopeful but feeing pretty distanced from the whole thing. I have really sore breasts, and that squicky feeling when nursing my son, plus the bacon and eggs DH made yesterday morning smelled just vile.

I'm debating going out today and filling my progesterone script, I'm suppose to start taking it at the first positive, so I suppose I should, but somehow it feels like I'm jinxing things... I'm already on my Folic Acid/B6/B12/Baby Aspirin for the MTHFR already (that's all the time when TTC).

So... shhh... I need a few days, and a stronger positive, and I won't count anything as real until I start to see quant. HCG levels rising. My temps are still well above the cover line..... There you go....

Joining.....

CD14 for me today, waiting to O. Normally I O around CD 16 or 17, but had the flu last week and don't feel like O is imminent. I'm using OPK's because of the unusual cycle. It's frustrating when we're finally ready to TTC, my normally very consistent cycle changes on me!

Welcome to our new members!

And best wishes to everyone that January brings BFP's

AFM- Thanks for all the sticky baby dust, keep it coming please I had a much clearer BFP this AM, but my temp dropped this AM and I woke up pretty crampy. Last night I was 100% sure I was pregnant. I just had that full tingly abdomen, sore bbs, super sensitive smell, etc. This morning I'm just second guessing everything. It was the coldest night of the winter last night, with temps in the low single digits and wind chills in the -10 range. I sleep with a little mini-cover stealer, DS is always kicking and pulling off the covers, and I could tell when I woke up my temp would be low because I was uncovered and physically cold.

However.... The cycle of my chemical, I got a positive test at 12 DPO, stronger at 13 DPO, symptoms gone and lighter test at 14DPO, bleeding at 15DPO. Ugghh.... It's going to be a LONG couple days until Monday comes, and I can get into the OB for a quant blood test. I'm torn between wanting to think positively, manifest what I want, and thinking I need to be prepared, be distant from this, so that if it's another early loss, I'm not devastated

Wow, lot's of new mama's! Welcome!

I will try and keep up here - lately I have been trying to keep up with the ONE...

I'm a day or 3 away from ovulating, and feeling pretty good.

I have been reminding myself it will totally happen - we've done it before, so we know it works. My cycle is pretty text book. I'm just 2 months away from 35, that's all. right? (can you tell I am doubting my own pep talk?)

ilovemyavery, sending you baby dust, making this one stick!

Started my clomid yesterday (cd 3). I'm hoping to have a less stressful month. Last month I was super busy with work and then I got the worlds worst cold three days after my IUI...I'm still just barely feeling back to normal. This month I'm working a lot less, starting mom and tot swimming with DD again, and hoping this month will pass quietly and happily and end with something good

Come on Qbear you and I have been on this thread too long! It our turn!

DTD twice so far, will try to get in the mood again tonight. Man it was easier when we were younger I think we timed it well. Now it's the 2WW for me. It's more like a 1.5WW for me though, because i have a fairly short LP and will have a missed period before 2 weeks
