Boo to AF ending (potentially, but hopefully not) right before valentines day! Hopefully she doesn't hold out on me that long!

katiecornflakes 02-01-2013 06:42 AM

jjh - Hopefully you'll be celebrating your BFP and puking on Valentine's Day instead! ROTFLMAO.gif

Livnkadesmom 02-01-2013 08:02 AM

Hi ladies! Not officially in the TWW. CD 12 so expecting to O in the next week. Here's to the month of "love" ladies. Fx'd for massive amounts of BFPs.

slammerkin 02-01-2013 08:13 AM

Just chilling. I'm 9 DPO, not 100% sure when to expect AF, if she comes. If she hasn't come by Monday or Tues I will test, so another 3 or 4 days to wait.

katiecornflakes 02-01-2013 09:15 AM

I've decided the worst thing about the BFNs and waiting for AF to show is that I am totally irritable. I am just so mad today. greensad.gif

Renaissance31 02-01-2013 10:15 AM

Well I am here and freaking out! Can someone look at my chart? I would love to know what all you wonderful ladies' thoughts are!

Renaissance31 02-01-2013 10:17 AM

I was expecting my temp to be up today and it went way down! :'-(

I am so anxious!

Blonhrt88 02-01-2013 11:14 AM

Hi again wink1.gif

Katie, where are those margaritas? wink1.gif

I'm supposed to start on the 7th, but um, I'm also supposed to dry up too. My cm has been abundant lotiony stuff, and it's making me think twice. I wanted to wait until I missed AF to test. Now I'm not sure.

sparklemaman 02-01-2013 12:45 PM

My apologies for my absence, I've been trying to finish all my grading and comments for the semester. Wow, it is amazing how much I need to write about 100+ students!! It takes a long time. So here I am in limbo, still feeling like I am out but not yet positive. I am 14 DPO today. No AF. Still having some very light spotting and lots of watery CM. And crampy off and on. My gut tells me it's a no go but I am feeling good about the fact that I O'd on CD 15 and I will have a 28 day cycle - longest cycle I think I've ever had. I was always a 27 day cycle (like clock work!) gal before DD. Then once AF returned PP I was more like 23-25 days. Since beginning TTC #2, there is not much about the last 9 cycles that is the same except that my LP has been 13 days ALWAYS with O occurring on CD 10-12. I did not temp or test this morning. If AF does not show tonight, I'll test and temp tomorrow morning, I guess. Fx that we all end up with late BFPs!!! If not, we'll keep each other company here in the February TWW for another few weeks. hug.gif mamas!!

Blonhrt88 02-01-2013 12:47 PM

Yes, sounds great sparkle.

I've done so good so far, but now I'm symptom spotting!

sparklemaman 02-01-2013 12:49 PM

Blonhrt I hear you, it is SO hard not to!! Lots of  goodvibes.gifto you!

jjh5351 02-01-2013 02:10 PM

So many of us are getting so very close! I'm hoping this month is the month but I've been very irritable lately and that is a major AF symptom for me greensad.gif luckily I am getting back from my parents house for a visit right when I am supposed to be fertile so yay to that!

chuord 02-01-2013 02:38 PM

Hi ladies!
Renaissance I'm not very good at charting - i had a look and I can't make head or tail of yours! Have you been temping the same time each day?
Hugs jjh... Hoping you are wrong (I get that same weird emotional thing pre AF)
Good luck sparkle and blonhart - I hope it works for you!
Afm lol since I missed this months egg, and I have a 33 day cycle, I probably won't O till 2 march! So I will be lurking and reading and sometimes commenting... But there's no point to be nagging you all daily until I'm in the game 😜 so take care and hopefully you'll all graduate 🎉🎈🎉🎈🎉🎈🎉🎈🎉

jjh5351 02-01-2013 03:10 PM

Renaissance sorry to not respond, but I have no idea how to read charts either? greensad.gif I think Katie is really good at it so trust her!!

Chuord I was like that last month just lurking and randomly commenting lol!

Renaissance31 02-01-2013 03:41 PM

Chuord- yep, there were only like 3 that were off a little. :-/
jj- that's ok! Thanks... It will happen eventually right? Lol I'm just hormonal and freaking out. This is our 6th cycle trying and we have never had it take this long before so it's making me worry!

larski 02-01-2013 04:24 PM

Hi everyone!  Newbie here.  We just started TTC this cycle, and I am currently 8 DPO... assuming I'm right about when I O'd (I think I am going to start charting after a couple cycles if nothing happens soon).  The wait is already killing me!  I broke down and POAS today, even though I knew it would be negative, because I just had a feeling.  Negative of course.  This is going to be a roller coast ride.  Everything feels like a symptom.  Agh.

jjh5351 02-01-2013 04:51 PM

Haha most of us are as nutty about POAS as you so if you're hoping to get people to not encourage you to test... Ignore many posts lol! But good luck!!!

larski 02-01-2013 04:58 PM

Thanks, jjh!  You, too!  At least I have a bunch of cheap tests, so I can indulge this obsession without going broke...

Blonhrt88 02-01-2013 05:24 PM

Larski I'm right there with you? Are you due on the 7th?

We can symptom spot together, hehe.

dahlia810 02-01-2013 05:26 PM

Good luck everyone :) I'll be lurking haha!



NovaM1 02-01-2013 05:40 PM

Hi mamas!! Just popping in to wish everybody goodluck on their tests:) I hope AF will hurry up for me so i can continue on my journey into mommyhood. I HATE this spotting crap its torture!

Blonhrt88 02-01-2013 05:44 PM

Hey dahlia! Thanks for the vibes.

ladyelms 02-01-2013 06:18 PM

so funny how we all pee when we know it's irrational!


11dpo and bfn. :( i know i'm not out, but i don't have a good feeling. i tested positive on 10dpo last pregnancy, so i assume if i was, i'd get a bfp by now. is that usually how it works? would love to hear from others about that.

mamacatsbaby 02-01-2013 06:29 PM

CD 17 and 6 DPO here. Still hanging tight tea6.gif .

larski 02-01-2013 06:51 PM

Yes, Blonhrt, I am due on the 7th, too.  It's so far away!  Good luck to all of us.

amycvincent 02-01-2013 08:29 PM

Renaissance- looks like you haven't ovulated yet. Your body can gear up to ovulate which will give you the positive opks and temp rise. Then, if you don't ovulate, the temp will fall again and your body will try again. There's also sometimes a fallback rise, where you have one low temp after your ovulation, then they go back up. Unfortunately, it's a waiting game to find out the answer! Keep BDing, just in case!

mamaBlue 02-01-2013 09:04 PM

CD17 and 5dpo. I'm going to test on the 8th. That feels like so far away. GAH!
