Erin, I think your chart looks awesome. I'd give it a few more days and test again.

I thought so too! But I'm being cautiously optimistic so far. Maybe until tomorrow when I can repeat the test.

And Erin, your chart is looking good too!

Notice, that I tested BFN on Fri and Sun...

ugh. please move me to waiting to O I'm 8dpo today, and it looks like the clomid just isn't working for me anymore, even with the doubled dose and added progesterone. I started spotting last night, two days EARLIER than on the lower dose. I don't know what to do. I don't think we can afford much more, or if there is even anything else out there to try. :

Oh Jillybeans, : . I totally feel for you. I think TTC while breastfeeding SUCKS! That's been my take on it lately anyway. My first 3 kids were conceived instantly & I assumed this time would be the same. I had no idea how impossible it would be for me to get pregnant while bfeeding. I laugh at how hard I tried *not* to get pg after my other babies, all the money & stress spent on birth control. I had nothing to worry about, apparently I just don't get pg while bfeeding! ~grumble~

Last cycle I had a 7 day LP. I am 8dpo today, too & my temps are soo low, they look just like last month's so I assume AF will visit me any second, too.

I haven't yet researched any of those things you mention regarding lengthening the LP. My thoughts are, as soon as my next AF begins, I'll research & try something new. This is our 5th cycle of actively TTC (plus 2 mos of NTP) so I feel that *6 months of trying* thing looming over my head. I'm SO bummed that this is taking so long. But then my mom will remind me that I am fighting against nature & that I should maybe just not ttc for now. And I guess she has a point, the nature of breastfeeding is such that it allows for natural child spacing. But *I* want to space my children the way *I* see fit!!!

Anyway, I commiserate & I'm so sorry that stupid AF is here again for you! I hope you find yourself pregnant very very soon!

FiberLover, wow, that's a gorgeous BFP you have there!!

Stellimamo, your chart does look awesome! I agree that maybe you are actually 13dpo today. Good luck with your testing today! I hope you get your BFP! : :

Arduinna, I'm sorry to hear that this wasn't your cycle.

Ooooh, stupid. That's my favorite word this week. Stupid chart, stupid temps, stupid AF!! In all seriousness though, I'm so sorry that you got a BFN. Here's to hoping that AF just shows up & gets this cycle over with for you.

Hooray, that's my plan for today, too! DH started a new raised garden bed this weekend & I'm going to go work on it. Soon as homeschooling's done! I'm feeling so freaking obsessively pessimistic, I need distraction too.

Yes! Gardening!

gardening is good....I got 2 BFNs over the weekend, finished building the greenhouse (there are links to pics of it in the TTC #1 in our 30's thread) then got the BFP today!

Maybe the act of creating life in any form is good for us?

I think so.

Thanks for the congrats, and *hugs* everyone!

Michelle! That line looks great, darker than my first positive was! I got my Beta results and they look good, so I am moving over to the Nov DDC, but I will be lurking here for a bit anyway!

Yep a Dollar Tree!

Oooh Yay! I think it is too. BUT, I'll of course repeat the test again tomorrow morning just to be sure!

I just can't bring myself to spend the $14+ on the fancy tests, so the only kind I've ever used are Dollar Tree!

Nothing wrong with Dollar Tree. I just recognized the kind. peeonastick.com rates them high. Our Walmart carries Answer HPT's 2 in a pack for under $7 Or one for 4 something. But I don't think you even need to test again that one looks good to me. LOL

Hey my seedlings are out on a field trip in the sun right now too!!

Since I started AF at 7dpo last cycle I keep checking for her now (8dpo), but nothing so far. : I have felt just a wee bit of nausea & weirdness but I've learned to NEVER get my hopes up over symptoms.

i've done that a lot tashauna. If it was instant bright red, and kinda thin, it was probably from a scratch. Mine usually don't hurt either.

oh, btw those of you coming up on 6months...we need some more girls! Things slowed down a bit when some people unfortunately graduated to 12months.

That's exactly what it was...this is the first time I have had nails in a LONG time, so I may have been a little too...um....rough I guess is the word. It's long gone now, so I guess it's nothing.

Fishie, I have nails too and it makes it hard for me to check to see if the cervix is open.
