I'm going to POAS tomorrow morning at 9 dpo. I got a BFP at 9 with #2, but I was neg a 9 with #3 (and pos at 10 dpo). At any rate, I've got SIX sticks just BEGGING me to pee on them, so I'm going ahead at 9 dpo. I'll update tomorrow evening-- hope to have good news!

Did you test?? Spill the beans, woman!

I'm here at 4dpo just twiddling my thumbs. It will be at least 4 more days before I can start looking for any symptoms.

Well, I have a back ache and sore BB's, so it could go either way. I hope to make it to Sunday! There is a chance I ovulated a few days earlier than I thought in which case my chances are much slimer. And my dd has been nursing a lot more this month for some reason. I'm afraid it might have affected my cycle...but hopefully I'll be testing Sunday. I'll keep you posted.

ARgh... don't think I can wait til sunday... I really want to test today, but I know that it's ridiculously early for any true results. Anyone care to look at my chart and obsess for me? *grin*

I'm tired (but could be allergies) my boobs hurt (but could be because I keep getting elbowed/kneed/insert body part-ed here in them by DS), I have to pee a lot (but I've been drinking more water, I think), and I've been feeling an almost constant discomfort (sometimes pain) around my left ovary area (felt the same way when pregnant with DS, but it comes and goes when I haven't been pregnant as well).

I have all sorts of reasons that I shouldn't test yet, but I really really want to, darn it! Someone help and talk me out of the insanity!

My decision is based on the fact that I only have one test, last month tested the day before AF and was mad at myself for wasting the $$. SO, that being said, if you have an abundance of tests or spent very little on them, I'd test tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day.....

O.K., so now I'm starting to obsess--I've been Miss Cool-As-A-Cucumber up until this morning. I really wanted to see my temp. up at 98.6, it's not, but I did wake up tired and I went to bed early last night. I may also be coming down with something. Yesterday I woke with a swollen eye-lid and a scratchy throat. Both symptoms are gone today but it has me thinking either allergies (but I'm taking nettles so that really shouldn't be the case) or a little cold. Of course, I hope it's neither. I'm 10dpo today and my boobs are bigger and a scant bit sore on the outsides, mostly the left one. I got my bfp with dd1 at 12dpo so I'm a little tempted to test earlier, *but* I just really don't want to get all wrapped up in the excitement and then disappointment if AF shows. I just really want to wait until Wed. which won't be so bad as we're going out of town this weekend. I'll definately have my mind on other things. I've got 6 tests hanging out in my cupboard, but they haven't been calling my name yet--the story might be different tomorrow.

BFN.... yeah, well, I gave into the urge... and I got a BFN, just like I knew that I would. I used a digital test, so I figured the little computer could obsess for me... but I did get a package with more than one test, so I can repeat on Monday (or Sunday, maybe), and then I'll have a more reasonable expectation for a true answer.

I just wish I could concentrate. Anyone find that an early pregnancy symptom is lack of concentration? Or maybe I just need ADD medications! HEE!

9dpo is pretty early. I'd give it a few days and try again.

Just checking in...my bbs are big, puffy and hurt to touch or lay on. I'm thirsty. I'm so hungry. My eyes are heavy. I'm tired. My heart is beating faster and I'm having to catch my breath quite a bit today.

Despite all that, I'm feeling positive and trying to be relaxed about it all. 6 more days until I'll think about testing.

How are you all doing?

Oh mommycakes you sound like me!

I usually get a fast heartbeat and breathless with pregnancy, but sometimes with AF too.

Well, the past few days have been pretty heavy with that stuff, so I'm hoping.

I posted another thread about my spotting issues. So I am 12 or 14 dpo and dh is going to bring home a test tonight. If it's negative then I'll know that it's just AF on her way.

Well, I did it. I tested at 9 DPO and it was as negative as I expected it to be deep down. I also had a bit of a temp dive today which is unusual for me. I usually dive on AF day. I didn't start today (which is good, since that would have given me an 8 day LP and I've been having 11-12 day LPs), so if my temp is back up tomorrow maybe it's an implantation dip. So for now my hopes are hanging on that, even though I've never had one before!
Temp up, I'll test again; temp down or the same, I'll save the tests for next cy.

I guess I'll join in here. I'm 15 DPO and my temp keeps going up. So I figure if I post here tomorrow I'll get my drop and AF will come.

My boobs are tingly.. normal for pms

But I've been having so many dreams about babies and loose teeth! I only started thinking that I could be pg yesterday, so I know it was not in the back of my mind. I'm thirsty. And today I felt really bad when I got up.

Good luck to you MissAnn!

Still no more spotting, and some mild cramping. Still waiting on that test from dh..........

Are you temping, kimmiepie? I checked your chart--it looks like you've been updating it but there aren't any temps. How many dpo are you?

Good luck to you.

Welcome MissAnnThrope!

No, I'm not temping yet. Ds just weaned so up until very recently my temps were all over the place due to frequent night nursing. Just charting cm.

I actually hadn't been charting this cycle because when we switched computers I lost my ovusoft cd and couldn't transfer it. So I had just been writing down things occasionally. And now I downloaded the trail and filled it in. That's why there are only 2 BD dates on there because they're the only ones important enough to write down. The O date could have been on the day before because sometimes I O on my peak day, but with no temps it's hard to tell. So I could actually be 13dpo. I've never had a LP longer than 13 days. Very few things recorded this time around until I get my new software cd.

Well, I wasn't sure what to post at this point.

I took the test, Answer Early, and as the dye went across there was a white line that immedietly appeared in the test area. It stayed there and is still there. I only had like a teensy bit of pee (enough to soak the stick but not enough hcg) so I'm thinking it hadn't been held long enough to detect very much. Maybe that's why it stayed white?

I took apart my other Answer tests that I took earlier this week and none of them have this on them. I can't take a pic because it's white.

I'm thinking I'm going to test first thing in the morning with the other one that came in the box and then I'll stop.

Oh kimmiepie--where are you? We're all rootin' for you.

Day 11 here. I feel like tomorrow is sort of a make or break day for me as it seems in cycles past, my temps start to go down at that point (though with my dd it's when I got my BFP). Otherwise, I'm really excited about the way I'm feeling and about the way my chart's shaping up.

Crossing my fingers and praying that this is it.

Well, I didn't even need to test. AF showed first thing. I am thoroughly bummed as I was really hoping for this because I won't be able to TTC again for many years due to dh's school. Oh well.


Good luck to all of you still waiting!! :

Why for many years? What difference is an extra month or two?

6dpo here and starting to obsess. My nipples are killing me, but the rest of my breasts are normal. Very weird for me. I'm gassy and tired and I've been having light cramping on and off since o. I'm already halfway through the tww, and the next week is looking very long to me.

Well, we weren't really trying, but we were just like if it happens we'll be happy. But it isn't ideal with the school situation. So we'd have to wait until he's done. I don't know, I guess we were sort of on the fence (or he was).

I should have known better because it took me quite a while to get pg before and I even had to have some acupuncture. Ah well. Who knows what the future holds.

mommycakes - I just saw your chart in another thread and agree it looks great. It almost looks triphasic to me (but I am still a novice charter).

Thanks Sunshine. I should be thankful for what I have, I know.


I agree, I thought mommycakes chart looked like it was going triphasic too.

My chart is a completely flat line, no implantation dip, nothing triphasic... AND, I have no symptoms at all! I'm thinking we didn't catch the egg this time. First month charting, so I don't even know how long my LP usually is. Averages are between 12 and 16 days, right? So I should look for a temp drop between Sunday and Thursday?

We weren't really trying this month either but I'll still be bummed if I'm not pg.
