thanks....
AF is due next tuesday. i think i am about 10 DPO but i'm not 100% on that since i am not temping. UGH i don't know, i feel like a basket case kind of, i just can't believe what an emotional ride this all is! it's insane, i really was hoping to keep it together this time. i feel i can barely function as all i can think about is if i am pregnant or not, o'h and let's not forget about all the "symptoms". last time i had those they were totally imagined. i keep wondering now about the test i took, i accidentally got rapid response instead of early response, probably doesn't matter much but when i was looking over the pamphlet it said you must test after a late period and i recall the early response giving a table of probable early test percentages. i think i'm just obsessing. i could scream.

TTC is a crazy ride. Last cycle I was a disaster by the middle of the 2WW.

FWIW I think it's possible you're only 9dpo, assuming ovulation typically happens after the last day of EWCM.

Seroiusly, We can relate... I'm feeling the same way, but have to keep reminding myself that I'm only around 12 dpo with Monday being "D" day.... I was just saying on another thread that I feel like bawling like a baby right now. (btw; I got a BFN today) But I have to keep in mind that the "fat lady isn't singing yet" and it just ain't over til it's over. But hope is diminishing for this month, sigh...

went and got digitals last night. got a "NOT PREGNANT" this morning. DH and i were together while waiting for the results and it helped being with him. i didn't feel as sad this time. it's so frustrating since i am actually still experiencing sensations in my body i equate with possible symptoms. i just don't want to get my hopes up this time. not feeling quite as nutty as before but i am pretty tired from all of the emotions i have been dealing with the last few days. :yawning:

OK so what i am going to do is list my *symptoms* for posterity's sake. AND if i find myself in the 2ww next month i will hopefully remember these better as not to be fooled again. : the biggest one so far is how hungry i am at night. i am not typically this hungry every night. i know it is not stress hunger as it gets worse if i don't eat. second thing is i have a slight full feeling and some cramping from time to time in my lower abdomen. also i feel a little AF ish off and on. i wiped tonight and saw a bit of brown spotting. i am pretty moody too. i am very glad i have support here and that atleast a lot of you understand me right now.

Hi there, just wanted to say that I would be THRILLED to have brown spotting on day 10 (which is what I think you are right now)

Anyways, I'm 9 dpo, and I am so depressed (inwardly). I feel so restless and cannot concentrate on anything. I'm going against my better judgement and testing in the morning, even though I swear it off every cycle.

Anyways, hi everyone, sorry to barge in! om deep breaths....

more spotting today and it was pinkish mixed with brown. i don't think i usually have spotting before AF but then again i am not usually obsessively checking either! i guess it could be AF, she has come as early as cycle day 24 which is tomorrow YIKES!!!! it's almost over either way, WHEW!!!! i'm so glad!

Court i know how you feel, :

OK so i have to post you this update, i went to see my acupuncturist today for my regular monthly session. i told her we were TTC etc..... when she felt my pulses she told me they felt like pregnancy pulses as they were different than my usual ones. AND she said i could be pregnant! WAY to get a girl EXCITED!!!! i already felt pretty hopeful going in b/c of the spotting this morning. my LP is an average of 15 days which wouldn't put AF till monday or tuesday....... O h dear i WAS feeling much calmer too!!!

AF is here and she is an angry son of a gun....

dang gina!

many hugs to you gals, especially October moon, I had a short LP too...I think it had something to do with the moon...when it's a full moon about to happen in a cycle towards the end I notice my lp is shorter like it wants to get in sinc with the tides and the moon....
oh well AF dropped her huge carpet bag on my doorstep yesterday morning, so I'm out.

I usually lurk when I'm TTC but decided to jump in today...

I got a faint on Friday -- I had to test because my boobs hurt so much! My AF is actually due tomorrow (Monday). I'm getting all the symptoms I got last time I was pregnant, so that's a good sign! But I'm a hesitant person -- for me, a is no guarantee of a :. Still, I'm hopeful.

I'll watch my temp on Thurs when it should jump. Haven't even told DH yet... I get so nervous that I have to keep it to myself. Last pregnancy, I couldn't even say the words "I'm pregnant" to my DH -- I had to show him the ultrasound so he could figure it out.

sunnykbird sorry you got you know who, but happy trying next time for sure!!!!

majorsky congrats!!! :::

as for me i know this sounds crazy, and maybe it is, but i still have a little hope. AF didn't show yet, i am so not sure what to think. i read that implantation can take several days and that some spotting can occur during that time. it's just the faintest pink color every now and again. as far as the BFN -maybe it's still too early? i don't know, perhaps i am in denial and it's pathetic? i waver between feeling like i am pregnant and feeling like there is no way i am. sometimes i want to go to sleep and not wake up until i am either pregnant or have AF.
