We had a TWW Thread for May 15-31 so I wanted to keep it going for the beginning of June. I am 8DPO. My temps look good (are still high at least). I had massive amounts of creamy CM yesterday and cramping. Today I am still cramping off and on and have major irritability but these signs don't guarentee anything....I am trying to keep open minded

Please Join Me!!! This way I can focus on all of you rather than myself

I am 9dpo today. I'm not feeling much of anything, really. I was very crampy last month, but AF came EARLY of all things. I remember being crampy with both of my other pregnancies, but right now I am not feeling anything. I don't know- I just have a feeling it didn't happen this month, but who knows.

I found my chart from when I got pg with my 2nd dd in 2003 and have it overlayed with my current chart. They are a little bit different, although the temps are similar.

Anyway- good luck to everyone! I hate the wait!

I'm in the 2ww too, but am not sure about my chances. I don't temp, but was almost positive that I ovulated (spotty mucus, obvious fertile mucus for a few days, and a high cervix) but last night I had more cm and yesterday my cervix was still high...?? But my 'drive' has significantly diminished, which usually happens right after I ovulate.

I'm on cd21, and around 3-4 dpo. (I think):

I am with you! I am 10DPO. I tested yesterday morning and got a BFN, but I am am still hopeful. I will test again tomorrow and then again on June 5th (my 8th wedding anniversary). I really hate that I am getting my hopes up so much for this cycle, but June is shot for me because I will probably be ovulating when I am on a business trip this month (DH won't be with me)

3dpo here! This is my first tww and I have long cycles (40-45 days) so I'm excited just from the novelty of it. I think we had good timing, so : I don't really plan on testing unless I"m definitely and decidedly late. So ... June 15th-ish? If AF hasn't shown by then, of course.

Thanks Rachel!

I broke down and tested during my lunch break at work. I am still in shock. In a zombie-like state, I told my boss that I wasn't feeling well and left early. This is worth a half-day, right?

I just took a second test, a different one, and I got another . YAY!!!

to all!!!!

I think I am going to wrap this test up and hand to my DH tonight as an early anniversary gift. Any idea how long it will read "pregnant"?

Well, I saved the test from when I was pregnant with my daughter in 2004 and it still has a faint but obvious line...so I'm guessing you're at least good until tonight! Congratulations!!!!

phillybama: CONGRATS!!! The test should be clear for a good, long time. When I got a positive with my son, my sister-in-law was living with us and we wanted to keep it a secret until we told our parents, so I hid the test under the bed. Well, in the excitement of the pregnancy, I totally forgot to retrieve it later. Just about 3 months ago, we moved the furniture around in our room and I found it. Totally gross, I know, sorry! However, it still looked like it did the day I took it, over a year earlier!!!:

CNutty I agree with Sunshine4004, no AF is a great thing!! Hang in there. I thought I had read on the nursing mamas thread that you had already had a pos. test. Sorry that it is still dragging on!

mamasgirls I am also 9dpo today. When are you planning on testing? Are you going to wait for AP first, or start testing sooner?

As for me, I am 9dpo, and couldn't resist taking a test this morning. It was negative, but I kept imagining that I was seeing the hint of a second line. I am having some of the symptoms that I had with my first, so I think that I may have just been seeing what I wanted to see. Oh well. I'll see what the next 24 hours brings.

That is definitely worthy of a half day. If I get a BFP I may need a whole day off to let it sink in

My goal was to test on June 7th- which is my dh and my youngest dd's birthday. I would love to give him a positive test on his birthday- I have already given him a baby on his birthday

But- I ordered some cheapo tests from online and I am hoping I have restraint to be able to wait then. But I might sneak one in at the beginning of next week I am just hoping for some symptoms. I am feeling a little crampy- but I did last month, too and AF showed up early.

Yea, I think it was the one thread a few days back, I swear that I had a faint line...who knows, its could have been an evap. Im thinkin that it would have been darker by now if it was a BFP. I am completely pissed off at my health insurance/ doc. They did a urine for me today, neg of course, but refused to do a blood test for 2 more weeks! I pay out the a$$ for health insurance and NEVER use it, the one time I need a doc for some thing and they are jerks!!!

Whew! Glad to see we just moved and that I didn't kill the last thread

4dpo here and still trying my hardest not to obsess *but* I barfed this morning. I know that it's because I popped my suppliments right before I ate breakfast (and then didn't eat right away). I took them, then quickly dressed my dd for preschool and then ran back to the stove where scrambled eggs were cooking. When I got to the stove a HUGE wave of nausea hit and I tried my hardest to hold it back. I quickly scooped some eggs out of the pan, hoping that if I ate them quickly enough I wouldn't barf. It just made it worse. I ran to the bathroom and threw up a few times (sorry if TMI) and of course I saw my suppliments again. ANYWAY, I know it's not very realistic or likely but now I've got it in the back of my head that maybe it wasn't just the suppliments on an empty stomach. The thing that's getting me is that the nausea really hasn't gone away. I'm sure it'll be a different story tomorrow. So, there's me--not obsessing

Congrats phillybama!!!!

6DPO

My temps have stayed high (after their usual dip after O) which they don't normally do and I've had a wee bit of cramping and thick CM.

I was nearly tempted to test, but I saw the price in the pharmacy and decided against it. :

I'll keep you posted

I'm here!

Seeing as how it's after midnight I am CD 20 and am either 7 or 8 DPO (I am not sure which day of the two it was). I caved and tested today and of course it was negative. I knew it was way too early but I just couldn't resist.

Anyway, my symptoms have been some cramping and lots of cm at 4 or 5 dpo, frequent urination, sore bbs, very tired, and today a headache and some nausea.

My plan is to test on Sunday morning just in case and then wait again until Tuesday. If that's possible for me to do.

Good luck everyone!!!!

Hi everyone!

I'm joining in - 6dpo here.... after 2 m/c, I'm a little worried about celebrating too early (as in, right away after I get a BFP) but that doesn't stop me from obsessing!

So, I think I see the beginning of a triphasic pattern on my chart, but that could also be wishful thinking... we'll see, I guess! What does everyone else think? (because the only thing more fun that obsessing about your own chart is obsessing about someone else's right???)

chart here!

Blessings,
Mindi

I don't know that there are enough temps to call it triphasic yet but I like that it is still climbing. I love obsessing about someone elses! I am 9DPO and getting tired of looking at mine....soon I will be seeing it in my sleep! I would like to test tomorrow morning but I am worried it is too soon and a BFN will really bum me out.

This is my first time here, but I'm just jumping in. I usually post over on the nursing mom's thread, but I need more people to obsess with in this 2ww. I'm currently 4 dpo in our first cycle TTC #4. I'm obsessing MAJORLY: I've never been this preocupied ever in a 2ww. I think this may be because this will more than likely be our last pregnancy and it just seems like all my cards are on the table this time.
So, check out my chart if you wish. I'm a usually 10 day LPer, but I have had 2 12-day LPs in the last 3 years. I have a bunch of HPTs coming in the mail on Monday and I'm just trying to hold off till 9-10 dpo.

Hello!
I'm 8dpo.
I tested this morning and it was a bfn.
I convinced myself I would see a very light pos. line but there wasn't one. It's too early....why do I waste my $. I knew it was too early to test.


I plan to re-test Wed. June 6th which is our 8th anniversary.

Man, the money I would have if I could have convinced myself it was too early to test when it REALLY was too early... I'm TTC #4, so I've got 3 kids' worth of TTCing and needless POASing... I feel your pain!

Ok, I know Fertility Friend has it's quirks, but this one just baffles me. If the setting is advanced, with my reading today, it moved the ovulation day from day 19 to day 21. Now, with my CM notes, day 21 seems to make more sense. However, if I change the setting to FAM, it moves ovulation back to day 19 (which doesn't even follow the 3 over 6 rule, but whatever). If I follow that rule, it's day 20 for ovulation.

I'm very confused. Anyone care to look at my chart and tell me when I ovulated??? I was actually surprised with the day 19 hatch mark, since I was still getting EWCM after that. We DTD on days 16, 18, and 21, so I think I slightly prefer the day 19 determination, since that's a slightly higher probability, but who knows - really it only takes once, right??? And getting pregnant hasn't been our issue, it's getting pregnant and having a baby actually develop (one m/c was a blighted ovum, the other was a loss at 5 weeks that didn't come out until a D&C at 10 weeks).

Sorry, I'm rambling. But if anyone cares to take a look at my chart and let me know what you think, I'd love some feedback.

Thanks!

Huge temp drop for me today. I am sure AF is on her way and it is seeming like another short cycle for me (I usually average 28-30 days, last month was 26) :
