Forgot to say earlier....
Shelley- I am so sorry honey! That sounds like something I would so do. It is hard when our emotions are this high at the end of the month, too.

Jezzy- I am sorry that your mother was so mean to you! That was never an appropriate thing to say to you. She had every right to think it (no matter how ridiculous it is), but she should have never said anything so hurtful to you. I am sorry that you are having to go through ALL of this. Just try to take good care of yourself now.

Subbing. I'll probably ask to be put on the list on Sunday.
For those of you that remember me, "Hi!" I know a lot of the moms that were on here months ago are pregnant or having babies.

We're still trying. It's been 2 years that we've been TTC #2.
Waiting for AF. Two neg tests this cycle.

CONGRATS CLARA!

Yay! I am soooooo happy that POAS worked out for you (I would have felt horrible if I had pressured you into POAS and it was a neg.

Have a wonderful and happy 9 months. Lots of sticky vibes to you.
Be sure to blow baby dust our way

Hopefully we covered it between the 5:30am BD on CD12 and the 1:30am BD on the night of CD13/morning of CD14. I tried this morning, CD15, with a decidedly leave-me-alone reaction from DH LOL, but I'm going to tray again late tonight!!!!

Its all so frustrating!! I just don't understand why DH won't just enjoy it while he can lol!! :

Wow- big changes here! Congratulations Clara!! I'm so excited for you! I'm glad your crappy week paid off! Congrats also to Maylea_moon!

And a belated to Jezzy. I wish I had some wise, comforting words for you, but unfortunately I don't. I just found out the SIL of one of my best friends is in the process of a m/c and I feel so sad for both of you, even though I don't know either one of you IRL. I hope you are comforted some by knowing that strangers are thinking of you and mourning your loss with you.

I'm anxiously waiting for tomorrow morning when I'm going to POAS... I don't know if AF is late or not because this is my 1st PP cycle and I had a 2 week long AF in the beginning, but I'm at 14 DPO and I've convinced myself I felt implantation last Saturday, so I'm feeling very positive about this... possibly too positive, ... hope I'm not in for a big letdown!

willowsmom I am still here too. We have used no protection without actively trying since ds was born and he will be 4 on the 21st of December. I have now been charting for 10 months. I am older though and I am sure that plays apart in my not being pregnant yet.
Anyway, I hope your stay is short and we can celebrate you moving to the DDC soon. Punquin just got to move and they were trying for 15months.

After 3 negative tests (used up ALL I had by the way...had to buy more a few minutes ago), I give up!!!!!

Please move me to Nov. BFP I am shaking so hard that I can barely type, but I had to tell...someone. I also need to come up with a good way to tell my hubby. I was pretty sure that my body was all strange this month, but I didn't feel pregnant. I guess 16 dpo (when you ovulate day 13) is a good time to test...anytime of the day. Now, I just need to find a way to eat my lunch....

YEA!

Omg-someone give me some opinions on this please. And for some reason I can't post a pic/attachment for you to see. Anyhow I took an early preg test and not even 3 min into it there's a faint line. I'm only 9dpo so I'm so afraid this is a positive and I end up getting af next Wed anyhow. So tomm am what test should I get to test again? I was going to get one of those digital ones, but if the hsg level is too low it won't pick up right? so ept? first response? I expected a bfn but couldn't wait any longer to poas. What should I do? Is it too early to try to get to a dr tomm?

Christy -- We haven't even made it to POASaturday yet! Hopefully you get to move more of us to BFP tomorrow!

As for me, I am definitely spotting, don't even have to check internally. I'm pretty sure I'm going to be out.

ETA: There are only two reasons I am retaining any hope at all. One is that I am STARVING today. I can't seem to eat enough. The other is that I am crying all the time today. Any little touching thing is making me cry. I've been trying to read the information about this year's Families in Need over in the Holiday Helper thread. I have to limit myself to only one or two at a time, because I start crying as I read each family's story. Normally, I don't cry very easily at all.

I have no idea. According to ff, I can't really get pregnant this month. I don't even feel pg. I just feel off, but I did start cramping at 7 dpo. That never happens! With my son, I spotted at implantation...so I knew. I didn't think it was really implantation cramping.

It was like this at my work last time. Two of us found out we were pg and due on the same day! It was really in the water. Five of us at a small private school were all pg the same year.

Sending good thoughts and lots of dust (sorry but I have to save the best dust for my sister ttc for 3 years...how do I tell her?????).

I have 30 minutes to figure out how to tell dh...because I really can't wait!

I have to tell you- I looked over almost nine months of charting, and every other month my cycle was textbook. The rest were kooky and random, and often FF didn't even give me dotted crosshairs. As a teen I had an ovarian cyst that ruptured, but I never even had it checked beyond that- who knows? Maybe I've only been firing from one barrel this whole time.

I have been eating like some kind of strict nutritionist the last six months. Lots and lots of prayer and visualizations. Green tea like mad. Robitussin every other day this last cycle. I think it was all going to come to some kind of good.

I just have to tell you girls something. Every month for five months I got this weird intuition thing about a week before AF where I just suddenly knew I wasn't preg. I always held out hope but I told DH each month that I was 99% sure it didn't happen. I can't explain exactly but I'll just be zoned out driving or waking up or something and just all the sudden know I'm not preg and then feel kind of sad and low for several days until AF shows.

Well, long story short, yesterday the oppisite happened. I was driving home in the dark (darn daylight savings) and was focused on the road when I felt aching in my boob and just realized all of the sudden that I thought I was preg. So I've been feeling so happy since then and today again my boobs just ache. They never do this for PMS. The only other time was when preg with DS. It feels a lot like when I was engorged early on in nursing. I know there is still a chance I'm not preg as it's just feelings, but I'm approx 6 dpo today and just feel so sure it happened. I think I told you guys before that this whole cycle I had a good feeling and everything seemed to come together right for us. I hope I'm not getting myself up for a giant let down but for now I'm gonna ride this high feeling until I feel safe enough to POAS. Maybe Tues or Wed, not sure yet.

Just wanted to share as like some others said, you are really the only ladies I can share this stuff with.
