So, I POAS again this AM, BFN.

But, I should have had my period by now! Gah! No feeling that it's coming either. I'm at least 14 DPO now, and maybe 17DPO.

Dang that I didn't start charting last cycle! I pretty much only found out about it around the O time, so it was too late.

So I'm waiting for AF to start the charting, or waiting for no AF and a BFP.

Here's keeping my fingers crossed for you guys who are POAS tomorrow! I can't imagine a better V-day surprise!

I'm bleeding. ?? GAH, I'm SO confused!! I really need a little smiley that's riding a crazy up & down roller coaster right about now.

Did I have an annovulatory cycle? Did I actually O when I had the EWCM on CD14? Is this just spotting that will stop soon?

Oy.

Well it must be going around... I'm spotting a bit now... VERY VERY little but I feel it coming on. So I'm not off to a late dinner and drinks. I hope she stays away from those that have escaped her grasp so far.

I'm sorry to hear that MissAnn, and FiberLover too! :

I can't believe this. Please move me to throwing my hands up in the air in exasperation and stomping from the room. AKA, waiting to O.




(I will be back to address your comments guys, I'm not ignoring punquin & others, but I'm feeling too freaking self absorbed & whiny. I need beer.)

To all who got AF


As for me I'm 15 DPO....which is beyond strange....I think either I didn't O yet (since I had fever temp rose and even though fever went away temp was still high-FF might think as O) or

I did later than FF think.

All the time that I've been charting past 8 months my LP was never long- as a matter of fact I'd LP defect it was only 7 days or so. Last cycle the longest was 12 DPO.

Here is my chart if anyone wants to take a look-

http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/134810

2 missing dates are my fever days-- what do you ladies think? (I know I posed this question before too )

zjande: I'm so sorry! How freaking frustrating! It is possible that you had an anov. When i got married, i had an anov the cycle during the wedding. I think we freak ourselves out more than we let on.

to all those who AF found. Can I join you all in a big pity party? I am on CD 2, never got to move out of waiting to O this past cycle at all. I had a very messed up 17 day annovulatory cycle. At least it was a short one, but these cramps are killing me. Okay I am off for a bedtime glass of wine and some good chocolates.
Good luck to all those POAS tomorrow, I hope to see lots of BFPs!

for those entertaining AF this week. I have a feeling I'll be joining you soon. I POAS again yesterday, and nothing. But today or tomorrow AF should be here with me. My temp just CRAZY jumped this morning, but I'm sure it has more to do with being sick. I went to doc yesterday and have a bacterial infection, she wants me to take amoxicillin. Yuck.

As expected, a bfn today. I haven't had a single cramp - the one symptom I had early on with my pg in Oct. Since I am already 12 dpo, I doubt this is my month. I will probably have to go through another year+ of trying before I get pg again.

And my friend who got pg on the first try a few months before i finally got a bfp (then m/c'ed) just had her baby. She keeps sending me messages that say "When are you coming to see my baby?" - no hello or anything. I am happy for her, but at the same time, it's a punch to the gut. :

So sorry for the bfn's... That really really sucks.

OMG...I think I might actually be pregnant. I took a test (from saveontests.com, does anyone else use these???) and I swear there was a hint of a line. I've taken them before and never thought there was a line. So I dipped two more in (LOL) and one didn't show anything but the other could have had a hint too...I can't believe it. Maybe it was a weird fluke with the test. But I swear I actually sneak tested yesterday morning just bc I don't really know when I O'd and there was NOTHING. So maybe??? I doubt I'll be able to wait til Sat to test again!!!!! I'm not sure I'm ready for this now...aaaaaaaaaack! I wish I had a definitive answer now....I was really hoping that if I got a BFP I could send DH something cheesy and cute to tell him the big news on Vday!

Now I'm wondering if I should go out and but a "good" test...wish I'd saved that FMU, darnit!

Cyrusmama, please move me to waiting to O. I started AF spotting this morning. Guess that temp spike really was due to illness. :

true blue~ actually you would have more hcg in your urine if you poas this afternoon (than this am) with pee held a few (or several ) hours and no gulping water , I say go for a better test if able : for you. Keep us posted!!!

HUGE to all those found by af . I'm sorry.:

Nadia~ hoping you are on the mend and feeling great soon! Be gentle with yourself.:

I'm still in for poasaturday, I'll be 11 dpo and should get a reliable result, as I usually get my bfp by 10/11 dpo.
Anyone wanna stalk my chart? I think it's pretty and at this point could really go either way: ~ tomorrows temp should be a pretty good indicator :.

Happy Valentines Day my Friends!!!! May next Valentine's find us all with either babes in arms or babes in bellies!!!!

Really? I always thought there was more HCG in FMU????? Ok wait, I think I see what you mean...that as time goes on there is more hcg concentration, right? I think I'll grab some better tests this afternoon and see what I can get. Now, what test? FRER has always been kind to me.

No no no...I charted way improperly...and self put in an O date....I really don't know when I O'd. I think it may be more like Monday, making me more like 9dpo...I just changed it to reflect that, since that coincides with my O pains better (TMI warning: we dtd so much that I really didn't differentiate for sure ewcm from semen...we never do it that often LOL!...we were on vacation though)...I only tested today bc it's Vday and I thought it would be such a cool valentine to send DH (who is in NY right now and I am in FL...and so glad to be here since it's sunny and hot and it's icing there LOL). That and I have a bunch of internet cheapies so I've just been playing (since they were like $.60 apiece lol). I swear I don't usually test like crazy!!!!! I just never saw these look like they might be positive...always stark white. The only reason I may try once more today is bc it's Vday...
