Well, the spotting stopped last night after just one little spot of brown and the cramps went away : If no AF by tomorrow, I'm still testing. I also haven't gotten my supply dip that I ALWAYS get when AF is on her way, so I'm still a little hopeful.

CONGRATS to all the BFPs! I love hearing them, they give me hope!

I hope something gets worked out for you soon!

Is everyone cool with me taking the job? I am sure I will still be here. Maybe it will bring me some luck!
I think you'd do a great job and I haven't heard anyone else ask......I nominate esmlranch for next month's threadkeeper. Can I get a second on that?

Congrats on the 2WW! That is what I read, I'm glad you are already doing it!: it works!

That drives me nuts! I hope you O soon!

Geez....reading through this was an emotional rollercoaster! I hope it goes away again! Were you trying this month, I can't remember if you were back from your break or not. Either way I hope a baby comes soon for you!

Well thankfully my temp was back up this AM. I am very anxiously awaiting my test day! I'm not having any of the feelings I had when pregnant with DD though, maybe they will show up soon, I don't remember how early they started with her, before I tested for I sure....:

When I got prego with DS I didnt have any of the same symptoms that I had when I was prego with DD So it still could be

I did have morning sickness with him to but it was worse because I was prego with twins and miscarried one at 6 weeks 2days. So my hormones were all out of whack. I started bleeding at 5w5d and they did ultrasounds every day from that point in the OB's office to see what was going on because My #s were good just really high. But at 6w 2d they no longer saw 2 babies

I'm going to introduce myself and then ask a question

I'm anthasam, my DD just turned 2 and nurses like a CHAMP. All the time. Really. I don't mind except that I am ready for another baby and my body does not seem to be.

I am currently on day 65 (no, that's not a typo!) of my cycle. It's only the second cycle pp too.

So, I'm not sure where this puts me. I've been paying attention to CM, however, I am just starting to chart temps. I got my thermometer and I'm ready to go now

Here's my question: I think I saw EWCM yesterday. We dtd on April 5th - nearly a week ago. Could this still be "fallout" or CM?

Thanks, mamas!

thank you all so much. i have not posted often, but i always read and many posts have been inspirational to me. i honestly thought i would be here a lot longer.

i guess i'm ready to be listed in the success stories, please.

just wanted to list my 2ww symptoms and such b/c i know you might be curious. i always was.

-didn't really have any symptoms at all. my temps were up, but i was unsure if i could rely on those b/c of the nightwakings.

-had a little bit of brown spotting at about 10dpo with a temp dip that morning. i was sure af was just around the corner.

-had a BFN on 13-14dpo, pretty much gave up at this point and stopped temping.

-got a BFP at 19-20dpo. Yeah!

good luck to you all! i know it will happen for you when the time is right.

It was a roller coaster for me too. Still is, the damn spotting left again after another brown spot, the cramps are gone again. I don't know what is going on with me. I was looking at my chart before and I'm on CD 25, which is when I've been getting my period, so as of tomorrow if no AF, I'll be officially late. :

We're not actively TTC, but not preventing either. I can't help it that I try to know when I'm going to O and decide to jump him

Thanks for the baby wishes! I hope so for you too, and for all of us!

maureen: i see a line! : i am very excited for you and can't wait for you to test again!!

sarahn: also very excited for you!! :

There are a lot of potential bfp's out there right now!!

Beth144: Thanks for sharing your info. Wow, 19-20 dpo is a long time to wait!!

anthasam You could just assume it is ewcf and dtd tonight! It is worth a try, no?

Thanks for the nomination sarah, I am looking forward to keeping the thread next month.

As for me, my ds has already fallen asleep, it is only 7:00, soooooooo I am going to go take this opportunity to corner my dh. I have been reading a lot of posts lately that talk about mom's who pop the first egg late, between 22 - 26 months pp and catch it without ever seeing af. My cm seems to be increasing so perhaps I am gearing up to o? Dh does not need any excuses. We have hardly seen each other this month anyway.............soo........gotta go!!

You are not the only long cycling mama here, no worries about that! I think a week is a veryy long time for it to be semen, my vote is for EWCM! I agree, assume it is and go get DH for some BDing! Good luck!

Thanks for all the "welcome"s

Yes, I assumed it was EWCM and we've already taken care of business

I thought a week was a very long time, but I thought I would ask anyway!

Congrats to all the new pregnancies!

Maureen~ That is exactly what my first test looked like. I was obsessed and kept taking them.... Did you take this in the morning. If not, do so cuz your HCG is at the highest. Good luck:

Okay, here's the picture of today's test. The top test is the one I showed you yesterday, taken w/ FMU. The second is one I took last night. The bottom one is from this morning, w/ FMU.

I have definitely had some funky tests before so I am trying not to get too excited at this point.
What do you think?

MCKH--i definitely see a second line on all of them, but the one from this a.m. is way darker than the others! hope this is it for you!

i decided not to temp because i have an ovatel that i use instead. dh and i are "not trying, but not NOT trying", but i use the ovatel every a.m. b/c i'm curious if i'll even O, and if so when. i just had my first ppaf, and am on cd8. last night i convinced dh we should have some grown-up fun after dd went to bed. he asked if i was Oing, b/c i guess i was a little more insistant than usual, but i told him not yet. and can you believe i saw some ferning this a.m.?!? i'm thinking i haven't Oed just yet cause the ferns weren't as abundant as i remember them being when we were ttc dd, but i'm sure i will in the next couple of days. i guess i'm just still in shock and kinda excited and nervous that we could actually get pg again! so i'm thinking i'll use my girlish charm on dh a time or 2 more, and maybe just maybe this will really work!!!!

Thanks guys, my husband is running out to get a FRE right now. I saved some FMU. I just don't put too much stock in tests from the internet. I'll update.

Ohio, we have been "trying" since my daughter turned one but have never been preventing. I have had AF back since 7 mos pp. But for the first 7 or 8 cycles, things were not optimal for pregnancy (long cycles, late O, short LP.) The last two cycles have been fairly normal (my dd is almost 18 mos), with the last one being the best. We may have conceived this cycle (see above posts!) Good luck to you - it can take a while for your cycles to normalize.

ETA: totally positive FRE! I'm going to stick around here at least until I miss my period......today is only 10 or 11 dpo.
