Tricia!

Spot should be here today...tomorrow at the latest. There is no sign of him, or his owner AF either. I'm pretty sure that I'm 11dpo, didn't chart this month, but sure none the less. My BBs and nips are both sore, my nips never get sore pre AF either, very strange! Usually my bbs are sore then it goes away right before AF but it hasn't gone away yet...dunno. Obviously I'm not obsessing, but I *may* just test tomorrow or Tuesday.

I had the strangest dream last night too! In my dream there was this HUGE frog wearing oven mits! BIZZARE!

You can move me to WTO. I'm not really taking the month off as I've had a umm... productive weekend and I'm due to O tomorrow. I'm not charting, but I've had some O-like twinges and EWCF. Since I'm not charting I don't want to be moved to WTK until CF goes away and I'm sure I O'd.

i think i'm just about ready to be moved to 'waiting to o.' all signs point to it, even af's faithful companion spot. i am really bummed. it feels like my cycles are back to normal, i get plenty of ewcm, we have sex tons at the right times, and still nothing. humph.

heather, not obsessing huh?

elowyn, how exciting! from your opk's looks like your egg is getting close!

lex, enjoy your accupuncture tomorrow!

Oh, CONGRATULATIONS, Di! :

I just Oed yesterday, so now I'm in the 2ww. I'm not confident that we had the right timing for this egg, but anything is possible. DS is proof of that...he was conceived on CD 9 a few days before O, when we weren't even trying.

I can't wait to see more BFPs this week...it gives me so much hope and happiness!

Here's my news....still on my very first chart....CD 4. AF's leaving, her companion Spot will be here another day or so after I'm sure. (I LOVE that LMAO)

I WISH DH WOULD MAKE UP HIS MIND!! OK, so last week we talk and he doesn't want to wait...AT ALL other than till Feb. cause I just quit the Pill. *I* say "let's wait till March or April to try though cause then if I do get pregnant right away, we'd be in a new place by the time babe is born." (We just had to sign another year to stay here even though we signed a year lease August 05-Aug 06.) So we're in our lease now till 11/30/06. The reason *I* said we should wait is then we'd have our own w/d and I want to : I'm mad I'm not CD'ing right now.

Fast forward 3 days. Now, after *I* am all excited, I'm charting, I met the midwife, I CHANGED MY SIG LINE......*HE* now says he wants to wait a little longer than Feb. to TTC.

Now, when *I* suggested that, it was all "but I'm not getting any younger" and I pointed out we're only talking a couple months difference, it takes almost a year till the child is BORN after all even if I conceived RIGHT NOW.

I'm not holding my breath.....the tides may change by the time Feb. is here. I know him, he'll want to use condoms, then he'll get sick of using them...by the time we go through that little cycle, we'll get to what *I* wanted in the first place, which was to TTC for a late Dec. 06/January 07 birth in the FIRST PLACE!!!

I'm still charting, not going back to the Pill. Still have to buy my BBT though.

Wow. . . there are so many of you just about to poas and all with such promising symptoms! This seems to be a luckier time than some have been. I hope everyone testing sees a in the next few days.

to Chrissy, I'm sorry things haven't clicked yet. Was your cycle pretty much as it is now when you got pg before?

I'm hoping to start ttc again next cycle (and I'm just O'ing now. . . so should be about a month from now when we inseminate), but it'll all depend on the cyst. I have to go in for another u/s as soon as AF arrives. Hopefully it will be gone and we'll have a green light for ttc! My acupuncturist is going to help try to get the cyst to go away, so I'm pretty optimistic. It feels like it's been sooooo long since I even had the possibility of being pregnant. I think ttc will seem less nerve-racking after having taken this 2-cycle break, though. Waiting only two weeks between "possibly pregnant" cycles will feel like nothing!!

: for all of you!!

ok i am at work right now but will move everyone over when i get home...

AF has arrived.. with full force.. which means that my cyst was a corpeus luteum that never got released which means i attempted to O on cd24...

i am excited that at least my body is doing something... not soo excited that she decided to wait until i was at work now i have to wear those maternity sanitary pads : oh well at least i didnt wear white and i work in a hospital..

CD 19 and trying to be positive! I plan to test next weekend if no AF before. I'm not sure what's up with my body, last month's cycle was so wacky, after the previous month's text book perfect chart (almost!) I had a LP of only 8 days! At the very least I want a good LP this time.

Congratulations to all the newly pg moms!!

Now, I can't remember if I"ve actually posted a thanks for the smilies... but thanks if I didn't. I also can't remember if I posted that my internet cheapo tests gave me a very very light pos, but the Answer test was really clearly pos after a few minutes. I wonder if the day that I got the really late pos on the cheap tests, even then it would have shown up on the Answer? Anyway, some stuff that TTCers think about

Looks like the BFPs are on a roll! Here's to having an empty One Thread this month because everyone is in a Due Date Club

CONGRATULATIONS DI!!!! YOU LUCKY GIRL!!!!
: : : : : : : : : : :


I am feeling blah today, kinda tired. Hubby and I are doign major housework. We are getting new carpet installed and have repainted the entire interior of the house. Luckily there are no fumes form the paint! I am 6DPO (CD28) now still WTK. I feel pregnant but something is making me doubt it for some reason. I am kinda starting to get a little bummed. I have had backache which I get before AF and I have also had PMS pretty bad too. I really dont remmeber if I had PMS during my 2WW with my other 2??? Does anyone remember having PMS during 2WW? I am gettign very impatient now!! I am not going to test until the 17th (hubbys Bday) if I can wait or next weekend if I cant. hubby said he doesnt care when I test. I thoguht he'd wnat me to wait for his bday but I think he wants to knwo too. He already says I'm pregnnat becasue of his "super sperm".

Is anyone else testing wihtin the next week or next weekend?? I really wish I knew now. My mom will be here Tuesday and I'd like ot knwo for sure before she comes so I can tell her If I cannot test until next weekend she will already be gone. Gonna get some rest. Nite all.

last evening I was typing up a nice, long, chatty post just chock full of personals- and the computer took another dive : That is really really frustrating.

chrissy- doggone that Spot. And his owner, AF, too. I'm sorry it is looking like this won't be it for you.

pycelan- have fun at your training tomorrow! Wow, ACLS instructor, even! I used to be ACLS certified.... seems a lifetime ago, now.

tricia- the new thread looks good! Will you move me to Waiting to Know pretty please? Thanks!

time4another- I've got my fingers crossed for you! Those signs sound promising!

fay- welcome to the 2ww! We're pretty much cycle buddies again this time around. When do you think you might test? I plan on Thursday the 19th I think it is.

savethewild- I hope this is your month, too!!! Stay away AF!

harmony- glad you're back with us on the thread!

cheesedreams- Here's hoping AF stays away for this week and a good long time afterward!

mamaem- I hope it works out that you get to tell your mom while she's there. teehee about your DH and 'supersperm' Let's hope he's right!

As for me, this 2ww is dragging by, as predicted. *sigh* Just taking it day by day; the little things keep me going, such as I can't wait to see what my temp is tomorrow. I can't wait for FF to show my O day and a coverline. Yep, I am easily amused LOL.

Um I don't even know what to say/think but...could someone please test my eyes for me? Do you see it too? I watched 4 min then got discouraged went off to do other stuff came back 30-40min later and saw this...http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v5.../IMG_12921.jpg

Its faded now but its still there very light.

Needless to say I'm hitting dollar tree on the way home from the gym this morning...

Oh and no spot still...

And I'm sooooo shaking right now (nope not caffene I only had one cup so far today-usually I have 2 or 3 LOL)

Well, we are actually sticking to our decision not to TTC this cycle. I'm on cd 9 and temping for the first time in years! I find that I wake up so many times in the early morning that I know I am not temping after 3 hours of sleep, but hopefully I'll see a trend anyway.

We are focusing on losing a few pounds around here and that is really helping to take my mind off a baby. ALthough I am still very emotional about the situation.

Best Wishes Heather! I couldn't see your pic but a line is a line right?

Timeforanother- I'm sorry, but I can't see the line on my computer! The resolution just isn't clear enough. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for your next test!

I'm testing on Saturday, if no AF. I don't want to get my hopes up too high, though.

Can I be moved to waiting to O, please??

We are officially TTC.
