Tomorrow is 14dpo. A teensy bit early to test for me and I don't have a test. Tomorrow I will go buy some tests and see how long I hold out before testing.

Momma Mia -- good luck......

Jillybean --- any "luck" with teh healing work you ahve been up to -- feeling any better (in general, as well as cycle?). I have been thinking of you

it is a little odd -- i think about you all so much, but could nevre pick one of you out of a crowd if we met at teh mall !!!

CD 5 here. AF seesm to be done; which is good. Normally she visits for 5 days, and maybe spotting on 6.... last month (39 days) she was here for 8 days.........granted this month she came late (not as late) but at least she isn't here as long -- even though the first two days were teh worst bleeding I'ev ever had except PP....................

Tomorrow afternoon I will start my O tests, I got a buch on -line and intend to test each day till I know for us if I am Oing at all.

Tomorrow I will also start temping.

Thanks Jill There's no way to make a pregnancy where there isn't already one, (okay, maybe if you're god!) but a prayer for the grace to handle the outcome of the test would be ohsowelcome.

I'm broken out, I was crampy yesterday and the day before and I'm very weepy tonight, so I am figuring that I will get AF soon. No reason I can't waste a pregnancy test or two this cycle. It's my god(dess) given right!

all of you ladies are so awesome! the support and love here is beautiful.

i feel so crappy, i don't know what's up.
i'm crampy, tired, i have zits all over (haven't had one since pre pg).

i just want something to happen o, af, bfp. does anyone ever wish there was an af test, just to know if she was coming?

and now ds is nursing constantly, all night and day.

does anyone know what green tea does? and how much you are supposed to take?

i'm sending love and good thoughts to all, especially those dealing with disappointment.

YES!

Broccolilover are you charting? Hopefully those are all pg signs! :

Good luck Mama Mia!

Aimee, it is easy to get obsessed. The trick is to keeping it a "healthy obsession" and not getting too stressed out.

jillybeams : for an early O for you this cycle!

Spotting hasn't gotten worse...tomorrow I should know more. I at least would like to have a longer lp even if I am not pregnant. Of course I would prefer a 9 month lp.

I am trying not to cry right now. I am having an emotional roller coaster kind of day, and my cycle symptoms are totally making it worse.

This weepiness is classic to my AF showing up. I am bloated, broken out, feel heavy in my uterus. It's classic. I've been having goopy cvm (yeah yeah tmi) that is just seeming like copious sticky mucous. Fine. Well yesterday it was really watery, and this morning too. Well now all of a sudden tonight I have tons of ewcvm, something I haven't really made since I started taking clomid. I felt it drop down and it was warm and I was sure it was my period. When I pulled down my pants I saw red, I swear. Then when I wipe there is pink tinged mucous, it's egg white all of a sudden and there's tons of it. My underwear are black, but I SAW red. I know now it must have been pink tinged.

I stopped temping (and saliva scoping) because I didn't want to obsess in the 2ww. I can't be absolutely sure that I ovulated and I am not being monitored for ovulation. But clomid generally causes ovulation within about 5 days after you stop taking it. All my fertile signs pointed to O 2 weeks ago. Now I am one day away from a test and my cvp is high soft and medium (a.k.a. TOTALLY FERTILE) and my fluid is also totally fertile. What is the deal? So maddening.

And I've been a tiny bit dizzy today, but I didn't read that as a pregnancy symptom but as a severe sleep deprivation symptom. A part of the reason today has been so hard is because I got somewhere areound 3 hours of sleep last night and had a really emotionally stressful morning. Then ended up going out with a mamma friend all day and having a great time. Those swings and the sleep deprivation, along with bad news that made me cry tonight... I just don't know anymore!

I am totally rambling which I do when I'm sleep deprived. I'm just going to sit back and try to watch TV streaming on the internet and veg until DP gets home. Then I'm going to do the just in case baby dance and crash hard.

Man. This is one of those days I wished I cohoused with my best mamma friend.

no, i'm not charting, i can't see it being worth it since i have no cycle.
i am use the scope and today there was nothing.
i' have to admit that i do feel pg but the reality is i am more than likely not.
this happen with my ds, for three months solid i thought i was pg before getting bfp. i just wish i knew something. the cramps are really annoying, and i'm so psycho i keep making up symptoms in me head. i wish my uterus was like a toilet and when cycles go wrong i could just flush it and start fresh.

Mamma Mia- all you symptoms sound good to me, are going to poas soon?

Morning ladies, CD2 here for me today. Didn't temp this morning either but it was because I forgot my BBT at the in-laws. Ah well, I'll start up again tomorrow morning.

MamaMia we are here for ya.

Naturegirl, those temps are looking good. Keeping my fingers crossed for ya!

Jill my love! You know that my LP was was MUCH better this month even though we still didn't succeed. AND I O'd later in the cycle so don't give up hope. To me a late O and short LP don't have to go hand in hand.

Proud mama to DD#1 (11) DS (4) and DD#2 ( 2 )

I thought LP was pretty standard -- the same , more or less, each month in the same woman -- but that O date effects AF -- that is late O, later AF....but that the time between O and AF should always be amost the same?

so a late AF would either be a failed pg or a late O??

yes? no??

aww mia. : I don't know you, but i still love you and am here if you need a shoulder. The best advice given to me when struggling to conceive dd was stupid, but it worked for me. (i don't know who i'm quoting, but here it is "Someday, as hard as it is to imagine, you'll have that warm little body in your arms, and every test, every tear, every month of ttc crap, and every single heartache will be worth it. In fact, you'd do it over again in a second." And you know what? She was right, it was all worth it. And I am doing again, and will keep doing it, because someday it'll be worth it all again. Hope that helps. :

carrie, i really hope you're right. But i'm still nervous. Especially because even while not nursing i have issues.

Cd14, no definitive signs of O.

Aimee: my first session is tonight. I'll let you know how it goes. I do feel better because of you rachel. I'm definitely able to let go more.

eta: cheryl, i'm really pulling for you!

Broccolilover- The only reason i am confused and frustrated is that I haven't been making ewcvm when all the rest of my signs point to O. That's why I think I didn't get pregnant last month even with BD on all the right days.

I am going to poas soon! Maybe later today!

I think I saw someone (not sure what thread) say that the latest for an Aug EDD is Oing on Dec 8, which is tomorrow. I know for my cycle (currently in the TWW), I could have a very-late Aug EDD. My DS2 was due 9/9 and my O date when he was conceived was 12/18. Of course, he was born 9/5!

Aimee, my O date on the 23rd would put me at Aug. 16th as a due date. So I'm guessing that the last two weeks of August EDDs are going to be ending soon as my two week wait ends. Make sense?

Well hello there HeatherB! We cross-posted

Broccolilover: to you! yes! I wish that was a test for AF!! I drink decaf green tea... from what I have learned that it helps with your cm. I do not think that it actually increases the amount... but it helps make what you do have thinner and easier for the sperm to reach the egg. Any of you other ladies can correct me if I am wrong. I drink one to two cups a day.

Hi zjande! How are you doing?

naturegirl:: soon!!!

Mamma Mia: !!! Good luck : !!

Aimee21972: good luck temping!! Also, I think that you are right.... I know that if I get pregnant this cycle.... which will not be for a while yet... I will be due in Sept.

Hi yogachick79! to you!! This is going to be THE cycle for you!!!!!!

Jill: Go luck tonight! Let us know how it goes. I am SO happy that I was able to help you!!! Thank you for your very kind words.... it means a lot to me as well!

LOTS of to everyone!!!

rachel, i've found the green tea thins things down a bit as well. The epo is the only thing that has actually helped with amounts.

to Mama Mia. I hope your bfp happens very soon.

to everyone testing soon and good luck to the new temp takers

Update on me: Thoroughly confused. I put my cf as light menstruation today. Sorry if TMI but this is what is going on. Usually with my cycle I have one day of spotting than pretty good medium flow menstruation on day 2 and 3. Well today (spotting yesterday) I again had spotting. Enought to wear a liner but not my usual day 2 flow. Really only when I go potty and wipe. So I don't know if this is af starting or what? To make thing more confusing...when I was preggers with ds I had similar symptoms and was SURE my cycle was starting but it never really got going. It was very stressful for me as I had already had one m/c and spent about the first 14 weeks of his pregnancy thinking I was having a m/c. Lots of light bleeding and cramping, etc. I even had clots of blood passed at one point. I wish I could just "do it" get pregnant and have a NORMAL, uneventful pregnancy.

Well hello everyone. I think I am joining you. It'll be a bit. I just got AF tonight though I've been getting them since August. I was on the darn minipill for a while and that really screwed things up. I stopped that a month ago. Well, soo.... nice to meet everyone.

So sorry Mamma Mia!!

MommaCrystal!

to you naturegirl!! I will pray for a perfect pregnancy for you!
I had placenta prevera with my ds and I had lots of bleeding... I understand... it was very emotional for me as well!

I am on CD10... I am starting to get concerned about the implantation happening during the time that I will be around my family for the holidays.... we always seem to catch a cold & fever..... am I silly for worring about having a fever when implantation happens? Can that hurt my chances of conceiving this cycle? Urrr.. all the little things that makes our minds busy. I am really trying to be relaxed this cycle.... what a difficult task!

Rachel, I think you can take alegna out of waiting to O and add her to success stories. I read on some other thread she got a bfp after checking in with the November thread. Not sure which month to add her to though!
