I'll test on Saturday...or maybe tomorrow. I'm CDO13 right now. I bought a more sensitive test, so I'm thinking I might test sooner than later.

This is my first PP ovulation. My ds is a nursing 17 mo. I haven't seen AF since 2001! I hope I either get AF or positive test!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you Joy, Oceanone, EnviroBecca, Naturemama and whoever else hasn't tested yet!

Here's my chart...
http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1ff63

The only signs of implantation I had were cramping this last monday (which would've been 7 dpo) - but no spotting, no temp dip, no triphasic temps....

I know not everyone has any signs of implantation, but i was really hoping. Fertility friend says not to test til May 10... so I guess I'll be pretty sure if AF hasn't shown by then. Gods I hate waiting....

Hi Joy, I'm going to test May 10th too, I think. I could test a day or two before that, but it's a Saturday and perfect for dh to be there, either way. That would be 17DPO, maybe too early to show up for me. Last time it didn't until DPO 19, or maybe it was the kind of test I took. Either way DPO 17 would be a VERY long luteal phase for me.

I still have achy boobs, and a little tiredness, but that's pretty normal. The cramping is still there, off and on. I might go to the Costco and get myself an industrial size pack of tampons. It worked for me last time! That would be huge overkill though as I started using the Keeper now....

Hi, JC cat, good to see you on the other side.

Naturgirl, sometimes those tests just don't show up early. Which one are you using? No AF yet, that is hopeful. I hope, hope,hope we can graduate together this month.

Sparklin, I'm looking forward to hearing your test results. .. Good luck It's about time someone around here got pregnant, might as well be you!

Happy May Day everybody. Now, let's see what the Easter bunny really brought for us.......

Mama to 12, and 9 and 3.

Good luck everyone, I hope there are lots of by the end of the month!

I am 2 dpo, however it has been a hectic couple of days around O, found out we are moving out of town end of May (on my birthday ) and have to pack up and hopefully find a house to buy in a month So I don't know if the added stress will prevent my body from becoming pregnant :

It will definitely keep my mind busy during the 2ww though!

I have been using the tests from 2weekwait.com and I also did one test with a First Response. Problem is I have no idea if/when I O'd so I am testing blindly.

I have a question about cf though...I have been having very moist cf the past couple of days. Almost egg white but not quite. I have heard that pg can cause more mucus to be produced for the mucus plug to be formed. I am normally very dry right before af.

Any other explainations for this. I am unsure if an anovulatory phase can have similar cf findings.:

I really need to know more about what is going on down there! :LOL

Hi ladies! I was part of the April2ww for about 2 days, then AF came, so you probably don't remember me.

My low down - ttc#2, this is cycle 8, I am bf-ing my almost 2 1/2 dd and my LP was 10 days last month.

This month, I am back to my 35 day cycle (last month it was a mere 21days). I think I o-d today, but because of a cold, my temps rose the past few days and FF thinks I am 3 dpo. So, I think tomorrow's temp will tell me more and hopefully will feel comforatble saying I am in the 2ww.

I look forward to celebrating everyone's BFP this month!!!

Oceanone, thank you so much for the vote of confidence. I appreciate it. I hope we fill this May 2WW full of pregnancy stories! I have creamier CM going on, cramping like crazy, tender/sore breasts and I'm tired! I'm at day CDO14. Here's my chart if you want to look. http://www.FertilityFriend.com/home/20edf I'm being strong and not testing till Saturday. (Or so I think)

Naturegirl, I, too, heard that CM gets wetter while pregnant. If you're testing blindly though, I'm thinking it's possible you don't know for sure when you Oed. It could be a delayed O. I'd make sure and take advantage of it just in case. You never know...

Saralou -- That sounds hectic. I hope everything goes as smoothly as possible.

Do you guys think I dipped yesterday in an implantation dip sort of way? I know, I know, I'm obsessing, and AF is still due Monday, and may still show up, and I'll cry my eyes out, but really, I think I have a VERY good chance of being pg here....

Feedback, please?

I think I will test on May 15, cycle day 30 for me. We have not been temping this month, so I'm not really sure when I o'd. I thought my CM was drying up, but now it seems to be back so who knows.

Joy, That dip could definitely be implantation. Did you see any spotting or have any cramping? As you might already know, you don't need those to have had implantation, though. How long are your LP's usually? I don't remember if you said when you are going to test. I would give it a couple of days - but that's easier said than done!

Good luck! I'll have my fingers crossed for you!

Wow, some very promising charts posted here!

Joy - I think that could be an implantation dip

If I make it past 10 dpo I'll probably become a "crazed" tester! Luckily we will be out of town and far away from my tests until I am 14 dpo, which is still early to test but will save me a couple days of wasting tests. But that is only if I make it that far past o

But since spring is here there should be plenty of for us all

Joy, that sure does look like an implantation dip to me! I hope it is for you. Wow, so if your AF is due on Monday, this could be exciting! Seems like you body might not have enough time to make enough HcG to show up on the test between now and then. Are you going to test right away or temp for another couple days?

Hey, while we're at it, take a look at my chart. I think I went to triphasic land! I'm so excited. In fact, I was so excited that I tested today at DPO15. It was negative though. :-( My AF should have been here by now though. Before I conceived Jude my lutal phase was 11-13 days. I still have not had PPAF so I don't know if I've changed or something. http://www.FertilityFriend.com/home/20edf Help! I hope I'm not getting my hopes up for nothing!!!

I'm wondering if i bought bad tests or if I indeed am not pregnant. Hmmm.

Brooklynn, welcome! Testing on Mother's Day is a great idea!

Sparklin your chart looks good! Here's a little extra for you

Brooklynn welcome. I hope that miracle baby comes to you very soon.

As for me, I am in testing insanity. Every day I test and every day I get the You'd think I liked the punishment:

I was expecting af to show up on Wednesday but don't consider myself officially late until Sunday. (I had a short cycle last time and I think I am re-adjusting to my regular schedule...)

Keep your fingers crossed for me too ladies! I am thinking or you all and sending you good baby vibes.

Cheryl, a nice, long cycle is good news either way of course. But I hope it's because you're pregnant. I have everything crossed over here for you.

Claire, you are looking SO triphasic on that there chart. And Joy, yours definitely looks implantation dippy! Oh, I hope we have a bumper crop of January babies making their presence known this month!

Here's a baby for everyone here



and some extras in case anyone wants twins

If only it were that easy!!!

Brooklynn - Definately looks like an ovulatory cycle to me....

Sparklin - looks triphasic... YAY

As for me.... Fertility friend says to test 5-10. Thats a **long** way away. I'm thinking if AF doesn't show by Tuesday, I'll test either Wed or Thurs morning. Both mornings I could bounce back to bed and wake DH up with fabulous news.

My LP is 13 days. Today is #11


Here's hoping we all have beautiful January babies!!

ok I'll explain more of my madness. I normally have a 28 to 30 day cycles. My last cycle was 25 days that was very uncommon and never done before. the Re's nurse said I should not be worried about one short cycle. Ok got a positive opk on cd 12. but I didn't temp that day. Then I temped on cd 13 and had IUI. didn't temp on cd 14. So I'm having trouble telling if I ovulated on cd 13 or 14. Fertility Friend has me for cd 12 but I highly don't think so. On cd 14 I had a lot of EGCM. I mean a lot. I took another OPK on cd 13 just to show dh how they work and it was still pos. So I'm thinking on cd 12 I caught the start of my lh surge. Continued to have back cramps and took another OPK on cd 16 and it was neg. I've been having a lot of cramps in the uterus area. But I'm not trying to read too much into them. But they are very noticeable and uncomfortable at times. I've been very tired too but that could be from my sinus and allegery troubles. Ok I'm rambling. I guess after 3 years I just desperately want to see a plus hpt

Brooklynn I also say you ovulated. Sending mucho dust to you

I hope those cramps and tiredness are from a growing !

I have a problem though. I have been sexpecting af to start soon and the only signs I've had are of ovulating! I even thought, what the heck, and tested with my ovulite (which I never seem to get good readings on) and low and behold, ferning! Tonnes and tonnes of it! Ovulating at cd30? My cycles have NEVER been off. I mean they are like clock work. What is happening to me?

Naturegirl - HMMM.. i know nothing about ferning, but I do know that if you're pregnant and using OPK's you'll look like you're ovulating.... have you POAS lately?

Can i just say i'm so glad to have a group of at least openminded women TTC online... I'm so radical (homebirth, no circ, no vax, breastfed, family bed....) that I just don't fit in over at the fertility friend circles... they think i'm a freak there.....

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend,

Hi I've never posted on here before. Quick intro. I'm Lissy mom to Andrew who turned 2 in March. We've been officially ttc since January. I had a early m/c in Febuary also my first pg before ds ended in m/c. Ds has recently gone down to one nursing a day (he was nursing 5x a day) I had a bad case of thrush with infected sores on my nipples (yea real fun) ds weathered the few days when he couldn't nurse , but unfortunatley my supply didn't (I tried to pump but it would re-open the sores) but ds is happy to still nurse first thing in the morning. So in some ways I'm grateful that weaning down from 5 nursings down to 1 was as easy as it was. I told ds nay nays were sick and showed him the sores and he seemed to understand. But still happy that he didn't wean completely and hoping that it helps my fertility. I know MOST women can get pg while nursing. Anyway I'm 5dpo and I might test on mothers day that would put me at 14dpo but I refuse to spend money on hpt unless I'm LATE!!! Best wishes to all!

Welcome Lissy! Hope that test on mothers day is a BFP! Thrush and infected sores on your nipples! Yikes! Mine hurt just thinking about it

Joy, I POAS yesterday and got a ?If no by Monday I will test again. Keep those fingers crossed for me ladies.

Other Symptoms I have been having: Some twinges/cramping but it is much different that pre-af, really tender nipples just yesterday and today, seem to be tired. Now as all of you know, this could all be "in my head". I am trying not too get too excited because I don't want the appearance of af to be too devistating, kwim?

Anyone else test this weekend? It sounds like we will have a lot of testers on Mother's Day Weekend! to everyone!
