Wow this thread has grown since earlier today! I hope everyone is doing great!

Angel and chuord, I might be moving to feb. TWW with you. My normal pms has started. I turn on my Bruno mars on pandora, nag my husband about more romance, and light all the candles in the house. LOL. Pretty on track for starting my period in a week.

I guess I can't be sure until she shows her ugly....flow! I just don't have any symptoms or feel pregnant at all right now. I'm ok with it though. Just sad I won't be able to join all the friends I've made here that got their bfp this month! It seems like it was almost everybody!

Cloth diapers rock! DS born 5.11.11 ...weighed 8lb 9oz and still nurses accordingly(breastmilk is more than just food!) TTC #2 since 5/2012 and already planning a home birth!

AKK - I love that your boss and his wife sent you a plant to recognize your loss. Too many people don't get it.

 

Dahlia - your tests look great!  

 

Nova - hope you get to test soon! Sunday sounds good to me - hope you can stay busy this weekend and not think about it!

AKK - what a nice gesture. So glad you have such caring people around at a tough time.

Nova - definitely test if you want to!!

Dahlia - tests look good for sure!

Blonhrt - not everyone is gone! Still getting BFNs and PMS symptoms here so I'm sure ill be here for the feb TWW. Blech. We should have a margarita to celebrate when AF arrives. I'm sure Sparkle will join us! We can have some sushi too wink1.gif

We will miss you girls but come back to cheer us on and send some baby dust our way!!

Well ladies:( i think i will be joining you in the feb 2ww. Lastnite i started light pink spotting when i wiped, and eventhough its only there when i wipe i kno its AF trying to make her way down because its too late in my cycle to even cling to the hope of it being implantation. Eventhough im a cry baby mess right now im sure ill be ok once AF gets here full blown and i hav a couple of days of letting out my fears of never being a mom through my tears. I would like to think i will never give up but i dont know how much more i can take. I am however better this month than previous months because i know i have all you lovely ladies on this journey with me. Thanks for being the most supportive mamas in tha world. I'll make sure to keep u posted.....

That's a really good idea when we were ttc ds2 my cycle was very regular but when I thought I was ovulating was wrong, I started using opk's and charting a bit more and that did the trick, I worked out that we had just been missing the ovulation window. Pin pointing it was essential for us. Good luck!

Big hugs, Nova. It is so hard when it doesn't happen and you want it so badly. I would definitely think about charting and/or OPKs. Even being off by a few days could really drop your chances. Hugs and we will all have fun on the Feb thread! wink1.gif

Nova- head on over to the Feb TWW and we will teach you all about OPKs and Temping. DH and I tried for a year with DS. Once I started temping I was prego in 3 mths. It is amazing what u learn about your body by temping!

Aw Nova, I'm so sorry this wasn't your month :( Big hugs to you, I hope you heal soon. Temping and OPKs are a fantastic method. With temping, it's so nice to be able to look at a nice clear picture of what your body is doing, and when. I used a combo of wonfo OPKs and clearblue OPKs; I only used the clearblue when I knew Ovulation was close. That way I would have 2 tests verifying when I ovulated. But I'm a huge control freak apparently lol. Best of luck to you lady! xo

 

AFM- Talked to my doctor today, and got my beta results! My hcg was at 18, but she's not worried because I had the blood draw on the day of my missed period and that is a totally normal level :) She even said that I didn't need to get another blood test, but I requested one for my own peace of mind haha. I told my husband that the results look good, and I can tell he's very relieved and happy, like me joy.gif

Nova - I'm so sorry.  I am having my first taste of what you're going through and I really sympathize :(

 

Dahlia - I'm so glad your numbers look good!

 

The negative I got yesterday proved true. Temps down this morning, and much heavier spotting. I will see you all in the latter half of February. Luckily I expect to be fertile right around valentine's day and my birthday, which should be fun :)

I'm sending mega amounts of baby dust to you all!! *hugs* grouphug.gif

Nova, I did this. Also watching for EWCM. I needed the clearblue because the Wondfo never gave me a clear positive, but once I saw that smiley face I knew I was good to go! And then I got my BFP! Good luck, and you might consider seeing a doctor too to get some testing done. 8 mos is a long time to be trying with no success, you may just be missing your window, but it wouldn't hurt to get checked out.

Serenyd: I definately agree on getting checked out. Long story short i was basically told without adequate testing that everything was fine and because of my age to try for atleast 12m:( so frustrating. Everyone close too me feel im obsessing too much about it and too relax. How do u do that after 8mo?!

Nova- my doctor told me the same and that is about the norm! Ill be 9 cycles TTC this next cycle if I don't conceive but I know it has a lot
To do with pcos. I wouldn't stress about it too much (easier said than done) because you're not alone! Stress is a high factor in infertility like symptoms! Get some OPKs and test this next cycle and see if you're ovulating! If you're not ovulating but having regular periods that's a totally easy fix for most women by using clomid! I have my fingers crossed for you and if you need any support were all always here smile.gif

A little late to the show here ladies but things have been busy, busy.  Unexpectedly got a BFP on the 29th.  We thought we totally missed it.  My temps were up and down so my ovulation date kept changing.  Very excited to be having an early October babe.
