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

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.

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

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.

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!!

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!

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 🎉🎈🎉🎈🎉🎈🎉🎈🎉

me 39, DH 39, one (TTC since November 2012) At least one confirmed chem.Ivf #1 march 2014 - 6 day 6 blasts, two transferred bfn, 4 frosties. Ivf #2 may, cancelled, Ivf #3 July two transferred, 3 frosties... BFP! 15dpo 336 hcg, 17dpo 681 hcg... Scan at 6+4 wks - twins!! Feeling more blessed than words

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!

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.

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!!!

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.

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!
