Linzie your chart does look a bit off and BD does look mistimed, but hey, a BFP is a BFP, wonky chart or no. Congrats!

That's exactly what I was thinking too.

The lightness of the line isn't really any indication of how pregnant you are. I didn't get very dark lines on my HPTs until I was 6 weeks pregnant.

Kleine Hexe- Could you please move me to success stories. I tested again and the line is even darker so I think I'll move on.

Thanks so much to everyone for your kind words and encouragement after my bfp. I hope to see more of you over in the July ddc! November is turning out to be a successful month so far!!

Spreading some

Just thought that I would post something in hopes of "catching" the Nov. BFP "bug"...congrats to all.

Ryan'smom: so sorry for your loss; I'm sure the shock and confusion does not help

As for me, I'm on chart day 21 of my 1st cycle. DS was down to nursing 2x a day but in the past week has been asking repeatedly throughout the night and doesn't want to let go. Hoping this is a positive sign that I O'd but I'm not sure.

I can't decide if TTC before getting AF was easier because in the back of my mind I knew the odds were against me OR if this month, now that there seems to be a chance will I be even more devestated?

Keeping my fingers crossed for all of us.

Can I be moved to 2ww wait DS is now 21mths oldThanks

Hi all,
I'm about 9 days from O and my son has been nursing so so much and I've hardly been sleeping (he's getting some molars and is having an awful time of it). I fear this will throw off my O or just make conception less possible. Any insight?
Thanks!

p.s. congrats on all the BFPs!!!

Maybe I did O earlier, then. It said PREGNANT so who cares!

Congrats on all the BFP's. It's only a few days into November and look at all the success stories!!!

baby baby momma, I'm in the same boat as you. We're actually all getting over a flu or virus of some sort, so dd has been nursing round the clock, don't know how that's going to affect ttc this month, but we will go for it anyways. Of course this had to happen after finally nightweaning her last week, but we'll just start over again...

Just popping in to say congrats to all the BFP mamas

Linzie, that is one crazy chart . I agree, you must have o'd on 35 or 38. In any case, I am so happy for you!

Just finishing up AF here. Her arrival was a total shock. I actually felt pg this past cycle - I didn't have my hopes up or anything, just the symptoms were tough to ignore. I was totally shocked when the spotting started. :. Ah well. As Brooke says, this is getting old (and fast!). I can't even remember for sure which cycle I'm on now - 8 or 9 I think. Sigh . . .

to all the new mamas! I sure hope your stays here are shorter than mine has been

Laura I am so sorry for your loss. I just got a chance to go back a few posts and wanted to share my thoughts.

My last pregnancy was an ectopic pregnancy and you described almost exactly what I went through. I also didn't know I was pregnant. I had a "light" period, felt pretty normal but slightly lighter. I was starting to test for ovulation because I was about 12 days into the next cycle and all my opk tests for about 5 days were positive . Then I got an excruciating pain in my side (mostly left) and it was BAD. I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. I knew I was losing the baby and suspected an ectopic from the pain I was having. Anyways, you can have an ectopic and it resolves itself without the need for intervention, especially if it starts earlier (3-5 weeks vs. 6+ weeks) You may have had an ectopic or it may have been an early m/c. I had experience m/c pain before and the ectopic pain was much much worse. At points I couldn't stand up straight or lift my left foot off of the ground. The ectopic happened to be on the left side.

I hope my experience brings a shed of understanding on what may have happened. I wish you the best and send you comforting vibes. Pregnancy loss is very hard.

Holy cow! Congratulations!!!!! In two days we have 5 BFP's! Incredible. Let's hope this is a sign for a very fruitful month for the rest of us.

Linzie, you did your part in continuing the tradition of Threadkeepers getting BFPs.

Wow, so many BFPs already! Congratulations!

Please move me to waiting to O. I got first PPAF last week. Hopefully my cycles get on track right away. It's kinda exciting to know my body's ovulating again. : Hoping to catch 2nd eggie.

Hi Mamas!
I'm back. I finally stopped bleeding/spotting from my miscarriage, so I guess you can add me to waiting to O. I am going to take an HPT tomorrow to see if the HCG is finally out of my system. It is the first time in my life that I am praying for a BFN! I was a graduate in September, but now I am back. I am still nursing my 17 month-old and I am hoping to start using the OPKs and to catch that first post m/c egg.
I hope we have lots of BFPs in November!

Wow! Look at all the BFP's this month already!! Congratulations mamas! :

I'm still hanging about. We probably don't have a shot this month as hubby is gone until Thursday. That's CD 21 for me and I've been Oing cd 18-20. I guess there's a slim chance but according to my temps, CM and CP... it's not likely this eggie's gonna wait.

Can I be moved back to waiting to O?

I have no idea what's going on with my body this month... Usually O b/t CD 19-22, on CD 29 now. Thought for sure I o'd the other day, but my temps aren't reflecting that. Maybe this will be an annovulatory cycle? :

Hey everyone-this has been my shortest cycle ever. Only 20 days! Big difference from last month which was 40+ days.

Anyhow, could you move me to waiting to O? AF came today.
