Ughhh...this 2 WW is dragging for me! DPO 5 today and it seems like the days are so long and it's still a long time to testing.

I bought Wondfo's on line this month, so a few more days and i can start peeing my little heart out!

I am feeling exhausted and emotional, but tell myself that if I am pregnant, the embryo hasn't even implanted yet, so i should not have symptoms yet. I think it is just the waiting and the not knowing getting to me....

Part of it is still grieving for my last pregnancy. I have a coworker with almost the same due date as mine was and it makes me sad for myself to see her belly grow and I am back at the start.

Hello ladies! Hoping I can join you all in this horrible 2ww.  I am 1dpiui and boring.  Two early for symptoms or anything else exciting.  Praying this next two weeks flies by!  Good luck to all!

Well, it looks like I am in the middle of the 2WW again!  Yeah!  this cycle is definitely more "normal".  My temp is going up nicely so I will just wait and see.  Went to the doctor about possibly thyroid issue - I am "borderline low"  - but I still need to get my prescription off to the mail order pharmacy.

I too am in the 2WW, just the very beginning. We just decided to start trying this month, so I haven't charted. If I get AF this time around, I will dig out the 'ole thermometer...

 

I think I O'd a few days ago and we DTD only on the 27th and 28th so I am like a minute into this wait. Sigh... I will be bugging my DH tomorrow too, just in case I am O'ing later than usual. I have shortish cycles and this would be like day 14 for me today. I usually see AF around day 25.

 

We already have one little girl, age three, and I feel excited about feeling ready for the second child. I want to really take my time this time around and not rush all the stages like I did last time.

 

Craziness - I felt crampy yesterday and a sense of fullness in my womb, and today I woke up with a headache and felt like I had a hangover. There is NO WAY I could feel pregnant yet, so I know it is TTC psychosis. Fun to analyze!

lilacvioletiris- I'm smack in the middle of my 2ww as well.  Hopefully this next week flies by and we both get good news at the end.  What day will you be testing?  Are you an early POASer or do you wait it out?  I'm hoping to wait until next Saturday. I'll be a couple days late by then. 

 

anyalily- Funny how the 2ww can play with your mind right?! I'm 8dpo now but I feel like I've been having symptoms for about a week.  Still not sure what is real and what is all in my head.  Good luck this month! 

 

Keeping my fingers crossed for us all!

Forgot to update-- we had a *very* faint line on day 12, a "pregnant" digital read that night, and a strong line on day 14.  Yay!  I was pretty sure I wasn't pregnant since we missed the 2 best days.

Congratulations Altair!  Very exciting news.

 

AirforceGirl, given my usual lutual phase I will wait until next Saturday to test as well.  Since I temp, I am not an early POASer because my temp tells me pretty clearly each month, nope, this isn't it.  Hopefully, my temps will keep rising and it will be the month!  Today my temp was up a little higher than my average temp.  I have been extra gassy the last couple of days, seemingly unrelated to the food I am eating.  Weird.  Hopefully next weekend will bring exciting news!

Altair- biggrinbounce.gif Congratulations!! I'm very excited for you!

 

lilacvioletiris-  I wish I was temping- I just never got the hang of it and always forgot to take it first thing in the morning.  I'm seriously hoping I can hold out until Saturday and that AF stays away for the both of us.  Your symptoms sound promising!  Good luck! 

 

AFM: No new symptoms to report.  Went to the bookstore today to get my book club's latest book and the trip completely wore me out!  I should have taken a nap earlier, but was afraid if I did I would be up all night. For once, I'm looking forward to the start of the week so that it will hurry up and be over!  Most of the time I feel like I'm wishing my life away- wishing for the next cycle, for O, for the 2ww to end, for a bfp... Oh well.

I am here to encourage you to NOT TEST!  No use wasting money on a test when a few extra days is all it takes to push the "line" over the edge from BFN to BFP.  Saturday Morning Nov. 4 here we come!

Altair, yay!

 

Well, I am now 5 days into the 2WW. Hmmmm. This morning I woke up early in the morning dreaming I heard my daughter calling me, but she was silent. As I lay there trying to go back to sleep, I felt nauseated. Yesterday, I also felt woozy. Unlikely it is anything more than an anxious feeling or fighting a cold, but it is so fun to imagine the symptoms.

 

I vacillate between thinking, "I must be pregnant" and "No way, I am not pregnant." Anyone else?

Totaly BTDT vacillating.  Yesterday's temp - wow, it is going much higher than expected, maybe I am pregnant.  Today - well it is my normal "high temp", I am probably not pregnant.  DPO10 today.  I will wait for tomorrow to see what my temp does, usually it bottoms out on DPO 11 or 12 and I get my period DPO 12 or 13.

Well, 11DPO and I'm just not feeling very optomisitc about this cycle.  Feeling a little crampy, like af is going to be here any minute.  I expect to start tomorrow or Thursday.  I'm pretty bummed about it. 

 

Still keeping you ladies in my thoughts and prayers.  Fingers crossed we see another BFP!!

Hello All,

 

Sorry for not being very active in the thread this past month, I've been insanely busy!  Sending sticky vibes to everyone, and lots of love!  Hopefully this November will be a time of Thanksgiving for us all.  So...  I'm 14 DPO and got home to do a POAS, as AF is scheduled to arrive tomorrow and I am impatient.  Last night I had a BFN, but today I had this, will you please take a look and tell me what you think?

Calpurnia, could you take the picture and put it in "negative" version?  I am not even sure where I am supposed to look and maybe I would see it if the colors are swapped.

Ok, so I'm seeing a faint line just to the left of the dark line.  I looked at images of other BFP's from this test at ff.com and the test line was in the same spot.  Although looking at this - I wonder if I'm going crazy.

Calpurnia, if you look over in the 30's thread, I made it into black and white negative.  I think I see it more clearly there.  Can't wait to see what happens this morning for you.

 

 

My temp took a nose dive.  I expect my period tomorrow or the next day.

Ugg, it was a false alarm.  At 5am I woke up with cramps - AF has come again.  A lesson learned: no more POAS before AF is supposed to arrive!

Oh no!  I was really hoping for some BFP's! 12DPO here and AF still hasn't arrived. Still not feeling optomisitc, since I'm pretty sure she'll get here tomorrow.  I guess it's good luck next time!!

Yeah, light bleeding this morning that I am sure will turn to full on AF by afternoon.  Here is to another month!

Still holding out, not testing... I have been feeling pregnant, just energetically (and slightly nauseated, repulsed by things) and having dreams! I had an entire dream conversation with the midwife who delivered DD (literally, it was a dream) but it went on for a long time was very informative and at the end she said knowingly, "Oh, you are so pregnant!" LOL. I am going craaaazy!

 

I am only 9 days after O, just based on the calendar. I am CD 20 and usually have 25 day cycles, so I will test on the 8th or 9th if I don't start to have symptoms before then, or don't see AF.

Me again. I was just sitting here and starting to feel really pregnant! I felt some gentle cramps and then my BBs started to hurt. My resolve is weakening about that whole POAS thing... First Response is supposed to be able to detect hcg as early as 6 days before missed period right? So by my count, this is day 20 and I usually bleed on day 26. Hee hee hee.

 

I need someone to talk me down.

I would wait a few more days.  Why spend money on a test or waste one you already have before your period is due?  You can do it.  Wait until Nov. 8!

Hi ladies,

 

I got a BFP last cycle at 9 DPO, had Hcg's done right away due to history of ectopic pregnancy and my numbers went from 6.11 to 6.57 in 2 days. Needless to say I started bleeding a few days later. Hcg check on Tuesday showed less then 2.4, so I am back to TTC. 

Hoping to have a great Thanksgiving....CD 8 today.
