Well, I hate to be a Debbie Downer... but I'm scared to death that AF is about to rear her ugly head. :

I'm not supposed to start until Saturday, but I'm starting to get that "feeling" in my abdomen like it's going to happen any minute.

Ugh! I could've sworn that I had implantation symptoms last week. Eventhough I was really trying not to get my hopes up too high... I still had a shred of hope because Ann_of_Loxley & I were experiencing the same possible implantation symptoms on the same day, and she got a BFP! So, because of this, I decided that I wasn't going to be sad until AF actually showed up. Well, she isn't here yet... but I have a feeling that she's coming.

Another reason I haven't given up yet is that I am still seeing some CM! Usually my CM completely dries up a couple of days after ovulating, so that is totally out of the norm for me. (I read in one of the Threads that a lot of women had creamy CM after ovulation and it stayed until they got a BFP). PLUS, I have been taking decongestants for the past 4 days and it's still there! I read that decongestants normally cause you to "dry up" and that you should avoid them around your fertile time because it will affect your fertile CM.

See how good I am at convincing myself that there's still a chance?? LOL

Oh - and since I'm sharing... I didn't start feeling the crampiness until after DH and I DTD tonight.

Soooo.... I don't know what to think!!! I'm SO AFRAID that the crampy-feeling means AF is right around the corner. Am I just being paranoid??? What do you girls think of my "situation"??

On a lighter note... because I can't stand leaving a bad post without something positive... I added some pictures to my signature line!!! It's nice to be able to put a face with a "name", so please, stalk away! LOL

LaurieD: Don't be a Debbie Downer....I know its hard (and this is the kettle calling it black), but try to keep yourself busy. I'm a firm believer of your thoughts and emotions having power. Do not bring on AF!!!

I go through this every month (right now actually) myself and this is what I try to do. You just have to try and keep that brain busy on other things. Your right, you have had symptoms, so that is a sign that SOMETHING is happening (be it a bean or AF).

Good Luck....by the way, your gorgeous and I love all the pics...I don't know how to do that yet, but there awesome!!

Me, too. Today I am crampy and totally pre-menstrual. I took at HPT yesterday at 11 dpo and it was BFN. The thing that sucks is that I took the test, set it down to finish peeing and when I was done looked at it without picking it up. I swear I saw two lines. I cried I was so happy. After I pulled up my pants I picked it up and saw only one line. That was more devastating than just seeing the BFN immediately!

I SWEAR I was pregnant yesterday. Everything in me was screaming PREGNANT. I thought Sunday night I had implantation spotting. I had pink in my CM. My cervix is not low (it ALWAYS goes low right after ovulation and stays there until AF, and I mean ALWAYS). I have CM. Just like you, laurie, I always dry up immediately following ovulation. In the morning when I have my daily visit to the bathroom at 8am (yep, I'm a regular kind of gal) I have soft stools. The last two days they have been a little harder. Okay, TMI, but that's what happened with my last three pregnancies. I can't have DH touch my nipples because they hurt and I don't get nipple pain with AF!

Anyway, I have to get my kids up and ready for school. DS#1 had Kindergarten, DD has preschool, and my little guy who is 2 and me are going shopping with my $100 gift card to Macy's (not that you can get much at Macy's for $100!).

CONGRATULATIONS, triple!!! ::: I'm so thrilled for you!!!


[B]laurie[B], you are so beautiful (and your DH is cute, too!). And I LOVE your dog! I want a german shephard so bad!!!

No AF this morning, and the crampiness has pretty much gone away (maybe it was just a fluke), so that's good. I still had a BFN this morning, so No News is Good News, I guess!

: Why, THANK YOU for the compliments, that is so sweet of you! I just learned how to do it, so I got a little "link happy" last night. LOL

I've been pretty tired too...buuuuuttt, WHAAAT?? Fertility Friend just decided my "best fertile" days are RIGHT NOW. Which is CD27 (it's mint-greened 25-27). WHICH I THOUGHT WAS 12 or 13DPO (how do you count that? is the day of O day 1, or is the day AFTER O day 1?). WHaat?
Now, I have put very little date into FF. It does not have much to work with...buttt....
So, I was planning to test tomorrow morning...but now maybe I should be getting myself "in the mood" for tonight???
I'll try to post a link to my chart. THere's not much to see, but if anyone who knows more about this stuff has an opinion, I'd be grateful.

So sorry about the momentary hope...
I HATE getting all of these positive pregnancy symptoms, and then keep seeing that damn BFN!!!! It's NOT FAIR!

And thank you so much for the lovely words. I knew I came to the right place for a little "pick me up"! You ladies made me feel so good

Feeling much better this morning - thanks to you gals!! Let's keep thinking *positive*!!!!

no. when I click it, it shows me mine. and I guess whoever clicks, it will show them their own chart.
here's what you have to do:
on the left side, there's a navigation menu. go to sharing > home page setup. there it will show you a link to your shared chart under Your Charting Home Page Web Address. that is what you have to give us.

I don't think so...my CM is watery...can't say about my temps, I've only been taking them for 10 days or so and have missed a few.
By contrast, 13 days ago, I had EWCM, and a strong (ahem, REALLY) libido, and the sensations I have always associated with ovulation pains.

Do you think that you are about to start/Time to test? Thats what it sounds like to me. Are you having any symptoms?

I'm testing tomorrow morning. In my mind, by my symptoms, I am 13DPO tomorrow. Symptoms: I had what I thought may have been implantation pains at 8DPO, plus a teensy bit of brown spotting. My nipples are tender - though I am nursing so that's no unexpected - and they do tend to get more sensitive as AF approaches. I've also been pretty tired...but that's not terribly unusual either!
I'll report back tomorrow morning!

It's okay, this was only my first cycle trying, and I had not been charting well or anything.

I'm so sorry. I got a BFN this morning, too. I did realize, though, that I ovulated one day later than I thought (on the 31st instead of the 30th) so today I'm 12 dpo. Still, 12 dpo with a negative probably means it didn't happen this month.

Sorry to you too, maxwill. As I said, it's okay...but at the same time there's a little part of me wondering if I could have trouble getting pregnant, if maybe DS was a fluke, if my body has changed since then...

Honeybunny? Any news?

Getting pregnant should be fun, not worrisome!!!

Yeah, where ARE you, honeybunny?

hey maxwill and Limabean: I only got to post for a quick second this morning before heading out to work, so I posted it on the no-test promise board. Got a BFN also today and I haven't gotten AF...my temps have started to go down and I really don't know what to think.

I started teaching at a new school this year and I have been waiting to go out and have some cocktails w/ my new co-workers b/c I have been in the 2ww. If AF started today (which it should have) I was going to go and at least have some drinks....instead I'm left wondering on a Friday night, what the hellz is goin' on!!!! I have very creamy CM, boobs are a little tender ( thats normal for AF), started to break out a little on my forehead (also normal for AF),a BFN, and temps that are low...I feel like SHE should be here.

You're not? I'm sorry. But certainly one can SPELUNK with protection on. You know, so you don't get hit by falling rocks and the like.

Honeybunny - dang, I wonder what's going on with you?
