Okay, after taking another test... an equate this time, I believe the lines I am getting are evaps. I also believe instead of more DPO as I originally thought, I think I might be a little less then what FF says... at least saying so makes me not want to test so bad I still think we might have done it this month... but I am going to wait until at least Tuesday or Wednesday to test again. I am quickly being reminded why I hate TTCing so much.

Attached2Elijah - bummer about the lines being evaps, but it sounds like you still have time to get your BFP!

AFM: My temp is back up today at 6dpo. I'd love to believe that yesterday was an implantation dip, but I'm trying sooo hard not to let myself get carried away. It's hard not to obsess!

Can I be moved to Waiting to Know? FF gave me crosshairs this morning, so while I'm still confused about the OPKs this month (stupid Answer brand... I'm not using them next month, and this time I really mean it!), I'll defer to FF for this one (especially since I like the day it says I O'ed). I'm not holding out much hope for this cycle, though... between bronchitis and dog sitting, the BDing didn't really happen like it needed to.

Attached2Elijah - That sucks about the evap lines. But at least if you think you are not as many dpo as FF says, that gives you plenty more time for that eggie to stick!

Hykue - So sorry for your loss, but I am very impressed and inspired by your attitude! That list is a great list of things to learn and feel positive about from this experience. Hopefully some of your positive attitude can rub off on me during this TTC journey.

Updated OP

So does anybody want to be threadkeeper tomorrow?

AFM: 5 DPO and no symptoms really, which is good because its early. Someone I know on the nets got a BFP today from her soy cycle. Gives me some more hope although I am pretty optimistic.

It's a bit soon to think about this, but I'm trying to figure out when I should test. FF tells me 10/16, which is 13dpo. However, according to my other method (Creighton)I'll be at 14dpo. I started my progesterone at 3dpo and am supposed to continue it until 12dpo. However, I have extra progesterone on hand and plan to continue it if I find out I'm pregnant. When I'm taking progesterone, AF doesn't come until 14dpo, so if I wait to be late I'll have been off of my progesterone for 2 days and that could cause my level to plummet if my body hasn't started doing better with making its own. I used my Creighton to figure out when to start taking progesterone. So if I look at the FF ovulation date I started taking at at 2dpo instead of 3dpo, which means I'll actually stop at 11dpo according to FF. So if I try to test that day to decide whether or not to take my progesterone, I'll likely be testing at 11dpo, which could be too early for a BFP and I really am tired of staring at stark white HPTs. But I'm not sure what other choice I have. I feel like I need to detect pregnancy as early as possible if I am pregnant. If I am off of my progesterone for a few days and then get a BFP, do you think that will make a difference in being able to carry the pregnancy? Oh...and I'm between insurance carriers and have to find a new doctor for my fertility stuff. That's not helping things. Thoughts??

Swimming-Duck... Why are you stopping the progesterone at 12dpo? That doesn't make sense to me.

Stevi - I usually stop it so that AF will start on 14dpo. I guess in thinking about it I could wait until I'm 14dpo (provided there's no BFP) and stop just to be sure I'm not pregnant when I stop. The only thing this would do is extend my cycle by 2 days. It usually takes 2 days for AF to start once I stop the progesterone.

It's nice to have company!

Right now it's all I can do to try not to think about how sore my bbs are and how tired I am. It's all happened every cycle and I know it's no indicator of anything, but man, it's so hard not to get my hopes up...

I've used progesterone cream in the past and it never extended my cycle, AF always came right on time.

I also used it during my second pregnancy, and I believe it is the reason I did not miscarry right away. As soon as I was sure that there was no chance my pregnancy would continue (I was getting blood tests that proved the numbers were going down), I stopped the progesterone and miscarried the next day.

So, I know just how powerful it can be. Of course, the fact that it takes 2 days to leave your system isn't surprising. We all react differently to these things.

If I were you, I think I would wait until I was positive I wasn't pregnant before stopping.

Welcome back Hykue!!

10dpo today...bbs started hurting yesterday just from walking down a hill or crossing my arms. Really tired yesterday -- couldn't stop yawning starting at 7-7:30 but it was a long day. Trying not to read into it too much.

Chart has been kind of wacky for some unknown reason...anyone have any opinions on all the temp dikes/drops?

bonadl2 - I looked at your chart. I'm not sure about the temps. Are you definitely taking them at the same time every morning? Do you have any early waking and/or early morning bathroom trips? That could throw it off. Otherwise, I really don't know. If not, you still seem to have a definite biphasix pattern, so I'm not sure that I'd worry about it unless it starts dropping below the coverline.

AFM: My temp is up up up today. I'm trying not to get too excited. But my temp has not been this high for as long as I've been charting (roughly two years).
