Yaaay!!! SO happy for the BFPs today!!!!

: : :

Sabo, especially thrilled for you as we were at least semi-cycle buddies!

:bfn here, though. Not too surprised, but a little bummed. Ah, well, less stress (or no MORE stress! ) right here before Christmas.

Hope Sabo, dctexan, and artgirl all enjoy telling the families for the holidays, though!

Off to DS's preschool... My sweet DS who prays for a baby girl and snow!

Heather: My heart actually jumped when I saw you had posted and then the "Oh, man" moment. I hoped it would be your month too.

Your ds makes me giggle.

So basically I am somewhere between 11-13DPO. I am pretty comfortable saying 12DPO. My normal LP is 14-15 days if that info is helpful to you & Katie at all.

Sabo - I believe my ETD is Aug 30
Oh no! I think this adds fuel to my fire. And, if we get a neg test, it may be because she O'd a day later than FF thought.

What is the relationship between normal LP length and when you test positive. Hers are actually 12-13 days. So does that mean that a pos is more likely at 11DPO, or is there no relationship? Can you tell I'm grasping at straws? Whoa. MUST CALM DOWN over here.

thanks!

YAY to all the BFP today. You make me want to go test again, but I'm holding off until tomorrow.

Two days late now but I'm still convinced af is on her way. I had a dream last night that I was trying to check my cervix and it was really hard but I could not find or reach the opening. I've also been dealing with major insomnia so that might have had something to do with it.

Thanks, Greengrey. I used FRER and ClearBlue Easy Digital. We'll see in a couple more days. I have my annual OBGYN appointment on Friday, so I'll have a lot to talk to the doc about, one way or another LOL
If I am preggo, then I'm going to print and frame this chart 'cause it's so dang pretty. (and if I'm not preggo, then I'll probably be tempted to burn it!)

kelly1216, I hope you can figure out wtf your body is up to & get on with the ttc with a body that's making sense (I know how it feels)!!

MamaSweetP, big fat bummer on your bfn. AND on your illness! I wish you much luck in the coming year.

Juneau
:!!! I hope we both find ourselves in the Sept ddc! I actually had a dream a couple months ago where my 8 yr old son had peed on my hpt & gotten a positive & I was sooooo jealous!

Nicole
! Good luck at your appt tomorrow! Here's hoping for some magical news! :

Amberbella, don't worry, it's just too early to test! : :

Greengrey, that sounds extremely promising to me!! : I look forward to giving you a smiley parade tomorrow!

kJad29
, good luck!! :

megin, so true, it is better than Christmas! And I can't wait to hear about Katie's bfp!! :

Heather, I'm bummed about your bfn. Last month my semi-cycle buddy got a bfp, too. Sigh. Hey I'm praying for snow & a baby girl, too!

I'm at cd7 & just impatiently.

megin i had a normal 12/13 day lp when i conceived dd, and didn't test + till 12dpo. i don't think it matters because even though she may have a shorter lp, it doesn't change when the egg implants. : Rooting for you guys!

Congratulations everybody!!!!!!!: : : : : : : : : : : : : : : :

Emily, I'm so glad you got threadkeeper's luck; that's the first time I've personally seen it in action.

Who is planning on testing on Christmas day?

I love the irreverence of a "pee on Christmas".

I was planning on holding off untuil then, but it looks like may have other ideas; no spotting yet, but my temp is absolutely plummeting after that one day's spike and it makes very little sense.

Oh well; I think they call it "menopause".

Maybe you can leave me on the list until my Diva comes out of the medicine cabinet anyway, okay?

Holy Mary Mother of Maude! There's a VERY faint second line on a $tree test this afternoon, appearing at 5 minutes. I will not scream until this is confirmed with a morning test, because after 2 BFNs this morning, i don't quite believe it. However, after nearly yacking in my trashcan at work, I just had to test again. Please, say a prayer, meditate, think positively, whatever for my sanity!

OK, if you look at the pics in this thread: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...ht=%24Tree+HPT
That first one is what my test looks like (yes, the thread in which I warn agains $Tree tests . . . but my evap lines were all well after 10 minutes b4, and this time it was by 5 minutes, and there was definitely some kind of somethin' happening b4 that.)
