YAY! I have some cycle buddies!! 8 today. yawn.

Question: does anyone know anything about temping with a regular digital therm? I once read that it's not OK, then, on a forum thread somewhere, someone said they use that and not a BBT... ???

Well girls, here I came ready to mention that this thread is 1 month old in a couple days and we should probably start a new one (on the 15th, maybe?). But gosh...

reason 1
reason 2

Running this thread seems to be such a good luck charm.... who wants to take charge of it next?

My chart pretty much says I'm not pregnant, right?

Aufilia--
Now I'm confused too. Were those yours???? I figured they were from various personages using the thread this last month!

CONGRATS Aufilia -- and thanks to those for the welcomes! I look forward to the next lucky thread and the bit of dust I have gotten from this one!

I'm on CD 11 and anticipate the O pretty soon, using the CB OPKs, only faint still. CM looking good, trying to decide if it's creamy or watery as it is on the lighter side of creamy. My DH is so humored.

Is your temp still high? I've heard of some women getting what seems like a light period but their temp stays high. Thinking of you,

I posted on the 'one thread' and thought I'd add it here, too... I couldn't hold out til tomorrow to test. After another unusual nap this afternoon, I reasoned that $$ store tests are cheap and I can always buy more. I had one early-pregnancy-test.com test left and I'm glad I did, the quality was slightly nicer but the results were the same. A faint pink line! This is the crappiest picture ever, pardon my cheap-o camera but my nice one is on the fritz. I texted my hubby (how cheesy!) since he can't answer his cell right now, and I just started bawling as I saw the words "2 lines = pregnant. We're pregnant!" We have been trying for 11 months, and I have been WANTING for about a year and a half. I'm crying again! Anyways, I had to share. Here's my fuzzalicious picture, I think you can still see the 2 lines.

Ok, sorry, clearly that wasn't a totally coherent post. Yes, it appears I am preggers, EDD 7/23/09. Thanks gobs for the well wishes everyone. I absolutely plan to try to keep up with this thread anyhow (BUT with DD, I had a lot of m/s starting at 6 weeks and could barely look at a monitor in the first tri. So we'll see how that goes.).


Rhiannon -- Oooh the outline of a plus sounds like a + to me. Do you have one of those blue dye tests? peeonastick.com claims they're not as good as pink dye ones.

Binkin -- I am really, really hoping that your temp stays up and you get a + soon.

ompath -- I always kinda pick creamy or watery based on how copious (or not) my CM is. Sometimes I feel like my decisions on that are kinda random.

Katey -- 21dpo!!! That's crazy. Have you considered calling your doc about a blood test?

ratrodgrl -- Congratulations!!! How many DPO are you? I can totally see 2 lines. sup

Erin, mom to DD (1/06) and DS (10/09)

thanks for all the kind congrats! I'm still reeling... but I have enough 'symptoms' to keep me grounded. I haven't spotted at all, and every cycle since I started up after DS I have spotted about 4 days before AF. Also, my urine is cloudy and I remember it being like that with DS. I've had uterine cramping and lower back achiness (very slight but there) and today some odd stretching ligaments over my uterus.

I took baby aspirin this cycle, and after reading up on it a bit it seems like I can keep doing that at least til I go meet with the midwife and talk it over?

Aufelia, I'm at 12 DPO, looks like our EDD's are right next to each other! yay!

Mrs.Babycakes, if you're reading this thread, we have the same EDD! 7/21/09, it's gonna be a good month, eh?
