Here's the new thread-I wanted to get it up before I went to bed, I promise I'll make it pretty later.

I think we also need a threadkeeper for next week. :

Threadkeeper bug biting me...yeah right! All I got was AF about a week early.

The bright side is that this is a brand new cycle AND a brand new month-I've yet to figure out what I might want to do differently, though!

I don't think this cycle is going to be for me. I just have that feeling. Last month blew and when I thought it was over I realized I lost my cell phone. Great way to top it off. So I figure with the way things have been going so far, I will not being getting a bfp because that would be a good thing. Now where is my freakin cell phone?

Nicole, I have to give a good deal of credit (I feel) for my BFP to Vitex. I had really long cycles, and took it hoping it would move up my O date. While it didn't really do that (I O'd on CD21) I just felt I had a really strong O from it.

If you're looking for something different to do this cycle, I highly recommend giving Vitex a try!

So in addition to this bizarre cramping BS I've been having (check the chart), today I am getting dizzy spells. In the shower this morning I lost my balance and grabbed onto the corner of the wall to steady myself and we just got home and I keep feeling, well, almost drunk. :

You know how when you get buzzed you feel all lightheaded, but not to the point of falling and getting injured? That's what I got. Anyone else on the fast track to the mental hospital? LOL!

jjrsgirl: Ive been a little dizzy too! I think its a good sign!

Ive gone from being bummed about this cycle b/c of all the CM after O (thinking maybe I Oed later then I thought and missed it) to now being VERY optimistic! This gobs of EWCM is still continuing, but its now beyond when I think it couls have ANYTHING to do with O. It MUST be a good sign. Combined with that, now Im getting that watery mouth, kinda nausous feeling, all day today! Ive never been so excited about wanting to puke! Ill admit Ive lost all scepticisum (sp?), I have a good feeling about this one!!!

I've been feeling dizzy too....hmmmm. I also have that metallic taste in my mouth for the past few days (I had it too when I was preggo but had a m/c) BUT this is my 1st mo using ProgonB progesterone so maybe it could be that??? My temp is down today. I'm 11 DPO. Very very faint cramping/pulling last few days. I had strong implantation cramps and spotting both times before. Tested yesterday and got a BFN. I'll try testing tomorrow if my temp goes up again. I'm still not convinced either way...

Sounds very promising jjrsgirl and CNutty!!

Okay ladies, I am having problems. The charts will NOT copy over from last week's thread. Any idea why? I've never had this problem being threadkeeper in the past. I'm just copying and pasting. Any suggestions?

I'm not going to move anyone until I figure this out. :

See if you can get last weeks thread keeper to copy paste it from her post (like she would if she was to go in and edit it) then you should get all the links and smilies.

I think I'm getting sick. Today I've felt so wiped out and like I've been hit by a truck. I had a hard time getting up this morning. Dh made pancakes and my arms were soooo heavy I could hardly eat. I went back to bed and slept for about 5 hours and still feel like I've not slept in 3 nights. My body hurts, my head hurts, my throat feels funny and I feel so weak. I also keep getting chills, feel flush and keep getting dizzy and light headed But we did find my cell phone!

I have definately had this symptom! (among others: exhaustion, cramping but no bleeding, excessive hunger, gag reflex, nausea, bloating, etc, etc). Often I'll just be standing there and it feels like the world tilted over so I'll start to fall and have to grab something to catch myself. Stuff that never happens to me (of course DD was a wonderful surprise so I wasn't paying attention to things like this)

BUT I last tested on Friday and got a BFN! Am I losing my mind?: I am going to see if AF comes this week and then test on Friday again if she doesn't (stay away, AF, stay away!):

OOO only a rough 1st trimester would be nice. I normally get sick and stay sick until I pop'em out. My thyroid goes crazy when I'm pregnant.
I'm feeling some what better today. I'm still dealing with nausea, and right now I'm so hungry!!! I've been hungry a lot in the mornings the past few days and I'm never hungry in the morning. I hate food in the morning. If my tummy is not awake I can't eat. Now it is awake all the time ... even when I'm not.

Hi everyone! I am Christine, expert lurker, novice thread-subscriber....I am TTC#2 and I am going insane!!!! :

jjrsgirl and ChesapeakeBorn - You both and I are on the same page!!! - I am 4 days past when AF was supposed to arrive, have had every preggo symptom in the book - nausea, gagging, hunger, lightheadedness, pure exhaustion, nipple tingling, and breast soreness...and in the past day or two my hips and butt have decided to become rounder and my pants all feel too tight but my weight is stable....whats up with that? Oh yeah and I am still getting a BFN!!!

I am trying to keep my cool and take care of myself but I have all this weird low backache and cramping/pulling right above my hip bones - maybe round ligament stretching? I am also feeling some weird stretching (maybe cramping?) in my lower abdomen but it doesn't really feel like PMS stuff..I did go for a hike in the woods with my ds yesterday so maybe I overdid it...I am so confused!

I went to the chiropractor last week and she said that she walked into the room and knew I was pregnant - then she went to adjust me and said my pelvis had totally shifted so she thought I was....but its not like she is a psychic..ever since she adjusted me though i have had this pulling sensation around my lower back/hips/round ligament area.

Wow I just wrote a lot.... ...thanks for reading if you got this far!!! I need to work on learning to write short posts : ....good luck everyone w/ TTC!!!

Ok I broke down and tested just a few minutes ago... and well I can see the faintest of faint pink line!?. I don't want to get worked up over it because you really have to look hard to see it. I'm giving myself a head ache looking at it. I'm probably hallucinating.

I'm taking it to a friends house... I'll tell you what she says.
