We are leaving this evening and will probably not temp until i return (10 days)

I am really bummed i thought this was it for sure.

??what else can cause spotting at 6dpo? It was one time when i wiped and pink in color.

Goodluck to everyone testing this weekend. :
Not everyone gets a BFP at 12dpo, some people take a little longer to build up the hcg etc. You could definitely, definitely still be pregnant. I would test again in a couple of days. Your symptoms sound so promising!

I had that same spotting on the same day, remember? And I was hoping it was implantation too. But I've had it in the past, even on bc. Every once in a while it happens mid-cycle when I wipe (just once or twice though). I don't know why it happens, though.

The fact that your temp rose is good, though... Good luck! You're not out yet! But have a good trip, try to relax, and if you're not BFP (but I really hope you are), I'll see you during our next TWW!

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I am searching around for this answer (i think i am trying to hold onto some hope) If i had spotting 6 days ago wouldn't the test be positive by now if i were pregnant?

Not necessarily...from what I've heard, each person is unique...I've even heard of the rare case where someone never gets a positive POAS.

GL!

As for me- Feeling like AF is coming already...Temps have been going down for 2 days. I'm still above the cover line, and this technically COULD be implantation cramping, but unlikely. : We'll see.

I may test earlier than I had indicated. Today my breasts hurt worse and I've the weirdest metallic taste in my mouth. My temps are still climbing and I'm tired and a little headachy, but not too bad.

I caved and tested last night at 8dpo, because I'm going out tonight and wanted to know if it was safe to drink. BFN. But this morning a wave of nausea woke me up and my breasts are still sore. I can't figure it out, unless it's just too early to test. I'm not surprised though. I didn't get a BFP from a blood test till 25dpo last time.

I think it still just depends on how high your levels are. I would say if your temps are still rising, it's a really good sign.

So... I should have said.... see you in the "I'm Pregnant" discussion!

The two week wait officially begins today. The IUI procedure was done this morning, and now it's a matter of wait and see.

yes! See you there very soon!!

Still af like cramps, but no AF yet. I usually have cramps the first day of af only so this seems like a good sign. Its pretty early for af too. Usually have one or two days of spotting to warn me before the full blown red waterfall. nothing yet. : boy am i obsessing.

Well, I was really calm the first week of the tww but now I'm 8dpo and going nuts with the waiting! 10 days to go - I REFUSE to test until I'm sure it will be positive...

No symptoms, but I had a bit of spotting at 6dpo, and nice high temps since then.

My temps are always really low compared to all of you. My temp is always in the range of 96.5 to 97.5 is that bad? I think next month I will test vaginally. I am waiting for AF still; this is my 4th cycle off hormonal birht control and so far my cycles have been about 35 days. FF predicted that I would get AF yesterday. I am having that full feeling, but no cramping yet. I took a couple HPT last week a few days apart but both BFNs. FF did not pin down when I O'd but probably because I didn't start taking my temp until the middle of the cycle. With my own prediction, I am 22DPO and on CD38. I just ordered 50 of those hpt from online so I will POAS in a few days if I don't get AF by then.

Actually, I'm pretty low. My cover line is 96.9 and the first half of my cycle was pretty chill. Course this is my first cycle temping and might not be the norm....

At least most of y'all only have a few more days to wait. I think I'm just ovulating today (maybe yesterday) so I have almost two WEEKS to go!

I'm with you there. I had my IUI this morning. I have a minimum of 10 days until I can test.

Got a BFN with FRER. Trying to convince myself my urine is diluted thanks to the soda and water from the midnight showing of The Dark Knight. This was technically FMU for me

I think my temp might be lying.

2.5 high temps now!! If I get another one tomorrow, I won't be "stalking" anymore!

I feel like everyone here is already testing.. and I'm still waiting to know when to test. But I think that's an illusion

I thought it would be easy to be chill about it this month, as it's only our first REAL month TTC. I kept thinking "I'm not going to get pregnant the first month, why am I even *thinking* about it?". But now that I'm (probably) in the TWW, I'm just as obsessed as...everyone else here!

DH(37) + I(36) have been working on collaborative project #1 for 6 years, fighting more battles than I ever imagined. 

2/2014 - IVF cycle = 2ndtri.gif due in late November!

I just got back from the Dark Knight and I sat there the whole time with nausea. I could barely consentrate on the movie with all the pregnancy thoughts. DH and I were even talking names before the movie started.

Must have been difficult to watch while nauseous...I heard it's way more violent than the others...

Yeah it was quite violent. But AWESOME! My dh is a die hard batman fan. So die hard that he has a ton of props and is working on building a batmobile.

Anyway, back to your regularly scheduled POAS-a-holicness!
I'm not going to test tomorrow because I used up my one test and didn't get to the store. I will test on the 22nd though! It should be conclusive then!

to all!

All of a sudden I am really emotional. I teared up during 2 horror movies, 28 Weeks Later and Underworld 2! These are obviously not tear inducing movies.

I hope I get my BFP soon, cause I feel like I am loosing it.

MrsMiller I know what you mean! I don't watch horror movies, though! But been very super teary myself.
But today is 10 dpo and still no buggering 2nd line. What a drag. I am taking it harder this cycle. Going between having a real feeling of being pregnant, to poas and feeling utter loss and despair. Real loss- like- omg I know I have a baby coming to me, WHERE IS SHE?
It is almost like having lost my child- this yearning to be connected.

Then I had this dream last night- long post- sorry but I have to share so I don't forget it-
Something about I was in Canada Quebec area- on the side of this great big river. I was lost. Then this handsome guy who looked some like dh but wasn't dh told me I had to go to the other side of the river to be in Quebec. So he carried me across, then back again I think, stopping in the middle. When we got to the first side again, I somehow had a hpt but it was all decked out and adorned with green strings and shells and pretty things. And lo and behold there were two lines on it! And the guy said, looks like you are going to be a mother. How do you feel about that? And I said, Great!" but silly thing was he was like- so who is the father? I'm like, I dunno- guess it was DL ( an old 12 yrs ago lover of mine!).

Any interpretations?

Maybe you think subconsciously that your lack of conception is DH's fault?
