Thank you for the new thread motray.

I am 6 DPO today. Only one more week to go. *sigh* I am super optimistic, but super impatient. I really hope I get a sticky BFP.

Now just waiting on my second results drawn today at 21 dpo...5 weeks preggo today. Should get those back next week sometime. This is such awesome news to us....with so many miscarriages it just helps reassure us a little bit that this baby is here to stay!!

Welcome back Hykue!
I'm hoping for you!

AFM--Nothing new really. Another birth/breastfeeding dream last night. I hope OH won't be stubborn about our date and maybe cut it down. He's definitely talking about kids more often these days... (Trying not to get my hopes up but you all know I'm terrible with that!!)

Just kind of chillin' here trying NOT to obsess over my chart right now... it looks so good. I haven't tested in 2 days but I have a feeling we did it... I am having a ton of symptoms but I guess they could all go either way. I don't know if/when I will test again.

Attached2Elijah - your chart is looking good!

Lydiah - may I join the cycle buddies? i am 4dpo! No symptoms really. Unless you would count ovary pain. It has been constant since ovulation. I had the same pain when I was PG in August and it is not common for me any other time. I am wondering if I had a large cyst in August and then ovulated from the same side or maybe due to hormones, that it is just residual irritation from the previous cyst? I have no clue? Anyone else feeling ovary pains right now?

Attached2Elijah - Your chart looks good. That temp has been climbing!
Also, if you figure out how not to obsess over your chart, please fill me in! I've been obsessing nonstop this cycle.

Stevi - Hurray for ovulation. Good luck!

AFM: My 2WW obsession continues. I've obsessed other cycles, but wow, I've really been terrible with it this time around. On one hand I don't want tomorrow to come because that means back to work, but I'm anxious to see if my temp stays up which would mean my chart has likely gone triphasic. I know - I know - not a guarantee of pregnancy, but it still gives me hope! Feel free to check out my chart and obsess with me. lol

Not yet. I'm going to talk to my ob/gyn about maybe living off the pain killers without the pill. I hate this stuff! Makes me sick at the start of every pack and I can't remember to take it half the time. Ugh. My check-up is next month so I'll talk to her about it then. The only thing I'll miss it the predictability of my cycles. Although, I was a strict 33-34 day cycle before the pill.

I have been playing an RPG on my Nintendo DS, when I am not chasing my 2 year old. It seems to pass the time. Especially now that DH is back at work. I am sooooo bored. Its a rainy day to boot.

If you click on the left side under my name "Visit [my] homepage," it's actually a link to my chart. I'm having so many symptoms it's not even funny... if I'm not, I would be highly surprised.

Is your pain from AF? If it is, Vitex might help you. I tried it for awhile and it completely erased my cramps.

Welcome, new cycle buddy!

I've been having crazy cramps since 1 or 2 DPO. I've never had them before and I keep hoping hoping hoping it's good news. They are odd pains, I keep worrying it's a UTI or something, but I'm pretty sure it's ovary/uterine. If I move in an odd way, like twist around in bed, I get some sharp pains. Feels sort of like AF cramps but not as constant. Anyone else have insight on this?

When are the rest of the cycle buddies thinking of testing? I'm going to try to hold out until Wed which would be 9 DPO for me.

I have sharp pains that are definitely near my ovary, and then a few cramps on and off in my uterus. I am trying really hard not to read into it, but this is exactly what happened in August before I got my BFP. The thing I find really odd is that while most of my pain is on the left side and way more intense, I am getting a few duller sharp pains in the exact same place on my right side. I will try to wait until a week from tomorrow to test, I would be 12dpo. I do have a ton of ic tests, so it might be hard to make myself wait!

Weird. Me too, but I'm a week ahead of you. Hmm, when do you consider the 2nd tri, 13 weeks or 14 weeks?

AFM - same old here. Some symptoms that could be pms or pg, except for some weird tingly bb pain that I've never had before. Who knows!?

Can I join in? We decided to TTC this month after much indecision. But this time round I haven't been charting, partly because I haven't got round to getting a new battery for my thermometer. We DTD on the 7th, so a bit of a wait yet until I can test. Annoyingly I also have an awful cough, so I hope being ill doesn't affect fertility!

nettlesoup - Good luck to you, and welcome to the group!

AFM - I'm 4DPO today, I think. It's either 4 or 5... FF moved my crosshairs yesterday, which makes me 4dpo today, would be 5dpo if I believed the first O date. Anyone want to take a look at my chart at give me your opinion on when I O'ed??

Nettlesoup - Hello and good luck with your TTC journey!

Savah - How fun to share the news on Christmas Day. I hadn't thought of that. That would be an amazing Christmas gift for sure.

Bootsvalentine - I'm going to try to hold out until Friday to test. That's a day before when FF says I should test. But it's also usually when I stop taking my progesterone, so I'm going to try to see if I can get a BFP! I'll be 12dpo then. We'll see how that goes.

ValH - I looked at your chart. I'm not really sure. I don't have any experience with OPKs and that's throwing me off. I would tend to agree with FF, but the OPKs show ovulation even later than that - I think? ?? Either way, you're definitely in the 2WW. Good luck!

AFM: I'm really happy about my chart this month. I never have a triphasic pattern and my chart is shaping up to be just that. I really hope that temp stays up!

Welcome nettlesoup!

ValH - Your Odate looks right to me. I've heard that you can get + OPK after you O as well due to residual LH. But, not sure. I don't use them b/c they just confuse me.

Swimmingduck - Your chart looks great!!! Let's hope you're one of our first October BFPs! I can't believe there are none on the list yet...

AFM: 11 DPO today...still haven't tested. We only BDed once this month but O date is uncertain b/c I forgot to take my temp one day and also had UTI right around O. So, we either timed the one BD perfectly or after O. Trying not to get my hopes up, but I've been pretty tired the last few days. Also, my BBs have been sore -- walking down a hill on Saturday caused them pain, as well as folding my arms. I typically get nipple pain, but not usually actual breast pain before AF. I also had some pretty vivid dreams last night and some restless sleep. But, who knows. Only time will tell. I am too scared to test and get a BFN so I am holding off until Thursday to test if AF doesn't come. In the meantime I'll just keep an eye on my temps as they should start to drop tomorrow or Wednesday.

nettlesoup--Good luck! I hope your stay here is short!

AFM: It's official. By keeping myself busy from my motherly instincts I only backed them up. Now I'm getting hit full-force with it all. Ahhh! Nothing new to report. I still have a killer cold.

nettlesoup - welcome!

Lydia - thanks for starting the cycle buddy list...I like stalking you all

swimming-duck - that is a good looking chart!

AFM: I am going to tell myself that I am going to wait until at least Friday (11dpo) to test...but realistically, will probably buy some ic's today and start peeing as soon as they get here...which might not be until later in the week anyway. Maybe I will force myself to buy some with a long shipping time Nice temp jump this morning, plus a ton of creamy CM this morning. I'll check later in the day and see if its still there! Plus cervix is higher and softer than the past few days. I've been bloated and "heavy feeling," but that might also be because I've been eating a lot. I keep pushing on my boobs to see if they are sore...they aren't. That symptom started around 6 dpo with my last pregnancy.

Sigh... Lower back ache and some uterine cramping. I'm CD21, the last time I took antibiotics at the beginning of a cycle, AF arrived on CD22. I'm only 4dpo, so it's very likely that the antibiotics screwed up my cycle, again.

11dpo today... and all the sudden I woke up this morning with absolutely no symptoms either way. I feel absolutely wonderful... no PMS-y feelings (I only have a 11-12 day LP so it's definitely time to be feeling something)... I have quite a bit of energy and just feel pretty good so that's probably NOT a good sign of pregnancy. Or maybe it is since I normally have such horrible PMS symptoms (I.E biting my children and husband's heads off, sleepiness, cramps, sore breasts, skin breakouts, greasiness) I feel like I'm in a great mood, tons of energy, no cramps, my breasts feel completely normal, not a pimple to be found and no greasiness... maybe no symptoms is a symptom itself? I don't know but my temp is down this morning but not a dramatic drop, just a little. Our windows were also open last night and it was pretty chilly so I'm pretty sure it's not my normal AF drop... Guess we'll see what tomorrow brings us.
