jenjy - congrats on your fabulous news!  So you are 11dpo?  Did you have any symptoms that were different than usual during the TWW? 

 

delighted - I like your reverse psychology.  In that spirit.. did I mention I love the TWW?  It's just so fun!

 

wife - hopefully you'll be able to keep your mind off things, but I get a hoot out of your posts! 

 

AFM:  CD 24 today and AF is technically due.  I always start in the a.m. but she's a no show.  Est I'm only 10 dpo though so I'm still hanging out, waiting a few days to test.  My boobs were sore every day until today... now nothing.  Still more full, but no soreness.  No symptoms except the same intermittent super faint nausea and mild cramping that's happened since CD 19.  Have a headache but I know that's sinus related.  Ugh.

I'm narrowing down my testing window, haha. My mom's surgery is at 7 DPO. I have to work on 11 and 12 DPO. I have to go out and help with my mom on 13 and 14 DPO. I was talking to DH and thinking of narrowing my testing window to either before I head out to my mom's (night of 12 DPO or morning of 13 DPO) or after I get back (morning of a possible 15 DPO). I'm not sure how I'm going to feel with the uncertainty of not testing until after the work weekend. Luckily its a short one. I could technically test on Saturday morning. This is what happens when you already have tests laying around!!

 

Anyone want to be my testing buddy? Next Saturday or Monday (2nd and 4th) are my current options. I got my BFP during a "pee stick party" where a bunch of people promised to POAS at the same time, lol.

wifeofant I'll be your buddy on the 4th, if you can wait that long, lol. That is when I am guessing AF will be due. Although I'm still unsure of if/when I O'd. Will be BDing until then to hopefully catch something. My CM and temps are telling me little at this point.

That is a great idea!  I have a very good feeling you will be!!

I didn’t have many symptoms until yesterday when I started to get a hint of sore breasts.  (I never got that symptom very strong at all in my chemical pregnancy cycle in August so that made me suspicious back then.  I know it's not a required symptom, but it's been an early sign in my two successful pregnancies.  My losses have had minimal signs.)  The other day I was out grocery shopping and the smell of those holiday cinnamon pinecone things was horrible.  I remembered feeling the exact same way when pregnant with my DD (I got pregnant with her at this same time of year) so that was actually my first sign this time!

Congrats on all the new BFPs!!!

I just wanted to share that I'm breastfeeding (11 mos. now) and haven't seen AF yet. I had a chemical last month, since I somehow O'd, but never even had bleeding/spotting after that.

I started taking vitex sunday night and the very next morning my temp was up to 98.3 from a week in the 97's (I only started temping last week). I've been just taking one capsule in the evening and have had all temps in the 98's this week! Now tonight I have spotting!! I think AF is coming, and I've never been so excited. I've been waiting for my full fertility to return so that we can TTC. This is a really good sign! So far vitex is pretty impressive.

So just for the heck of it I bought the dollar tree ovulation predictor test and it instantly came positive for LH. What is your experience with this $tree test? Accurate-ish? I did happen to have some EWCM today but not a huge amount.

I'll take over! just update it one last time so I know where to start. It'll give me something to do during my 2ww. Of course, if we don't conceive this time, we'll have to wait until December to try again (to avoid an August baby). So maybe I'll be here for a while.

rosie, if my hcg had been just a smidge lower, I wouldn't have had a line at all yesterday at 11DPO.  Please don't count yourself out.

That's great, WifeofAnt! :love  Yes, if you want to take it now that would be fantastic!  The list should be up-to-date.  Do you want to start a new thread for the last week of October (and I'll adjust the title of this one accordingly)?  (I think these "One" threads used to be weekly anyway.)  Or would you rather see if I can get a mod to switch you to being the OP of this one?  Or another way to handover?  Thanks so much for volunteering!!  Let me know if there is anything else I can do.

*yawn* It's thursday. DH's bad cold greensad.gif is almost gone but the little one and I are still sleeping sleeping.gif in the guest room away from him until he is fully recovered. I have to admit, I miss sleeping in bed. And I'm definitely starting to miss DTD. He's need to hurry up and get over this cold ASAP! And did I also mention that it was freezing here in Atlanta this this mroning?cold.gif Fall is officially here.

I was looking at the calendar - if we conceive in late October, or sometime in November, we will have an August baby. DS was conceived during this same window of time because he was born on August 4 with a due date of August 8. Fingers crossed that my ovaries cooperate!praying.gif

It'd probably be less confusing if a mod switched me to be able to edit the OP. Then I'd just create November's on the 1st (funny enough I should be 10 DPO that day, if I get my BFP it'll be either in the first week as OP or in December/January).

 

Fertility Friend is not letting me add new data. It won't "stick" from either the app or the website. Either way, I'm either having a fall-back rise or I didn't really ovulate. I guess I should know tomorrow whether or not my temperature picks back up. If it doesn't, I'm going to remove my cross-hairs and go back to waiting to o.

 

edubluv - The test line should be as dark as or darker than the control line on a positive LH strip. A line will always show up but it needs to be dark to be a 'surge'.

WideofAnt -- Sometimes I have to enter data a few times before it sticks... it's strange.  Anyway, I hope it's just a fallback rise.  I pm'd the moderator for this forum to ask about switching it so you can edit the first post.  Thank you again.  

 

NaturallyMo - I hope this is your cycle!

 

Russell -- it's still early!!  :hug

jenjy - I got it to stick. I had to wait a few minutes in between entries. It would only accept one new thing at a time.

 

AFM - I was messing around and if I have 3 high temperatures over the next 3 days then it will consider today's temp to be a fall-back and keep my ovulation day. So I'm tentatively holding today as 2 DPO.

An interesting fact is that the mother's body begins producing Early Pregnancy Factor (EPF) shortly after conception. Its actually slightly immunosuppressive, its a chemical designed to keep the mother's body from attacking the zygote.

 

Add: Why do I have to be *so* tired? I'm only 2 DPO for ovary's sake! I slept like 9 hours and I feel like I'm dragging myself around. I guess if I want to be pregnant I'm going to have to suck it up and sneak naps or something, lol.

Well AF due today going by my last cycle. Only she's a no-show, but I did do a test and the strip couldn't be any whiter, BFN! I have no symptoms (pregnancy or AF) so perhaps I'm in for a loooong cycle, caved and bought some OPK strips for next month already...

If you woke early, tried to go back to sleep, and couldn't, would you just throw that temperature out completely? I've been sleeping like sh** and my temperature didn't come back up, so FF is saying no ovulation. If I weren't taking my temperature I'd be assuming I had but now I'm really confused. If it comes back up, I'll just discard today. Of course that means I'm going to have to start actually sleeping. Is 5:30 really that hard!?

Took today off. Everyone left for school/work and I got to sleep to 9!! Felt amazing!!!! So I got up and took a first signal cassette. After 10 minutes I imagined I saw the faintest of lines. Then kicked myself for dumping my cup of FMU. So after 30 minutes I used my only digital with the small amount of pee I could muster. Went outside and prayed/waited. When I came back it said Pregnant!!!! OMG! I'm freaking out and so scared and so excited! Haven't told hubby yet as this was literally 5 minutes ago!!!!

Rosie2727- congratulations! What a wonderful sight to see this morning! So many positives this month (and it's my first month here). So excited for you

AFM probably 4dpo and have a strange positive feeling, but maybe that feeling is hope! Haha! it's only our first attempt so I better not get carried away looking for signs. Darn fortune cookie fortune messing with my head!
