Who Else is still in the TWW here?

I am still in... for now. I felt like AF was coming all day- the wet crampy feeling you know? Kept checking for blood- none. At least I'm not spotting early like last "normal" cycle. Cervix still closed and hard, though higher up. Moody. We'll see what my temps do tomorrow.

I'm still in. 9dpo.

I couldn't wait any longer...and took one of those cheap internet test strips today. I SWEAR I saw a faint little line there-we're talking super faint- but swear it was there. Then all my touching the test screwed it up and you couldn't tell what your were seeing anymore. So I thought...Oh, I'll just do another one when I get home. Unfortunately, I had to pee REALLY bad at work tonight, and it wasn't until I had already started peeing that I remembered..OH CRAP, I wanted to POAS when I get home. Oops. SO later, w/ stupid dilluted urine, I peed on a first response....and BFN. Grrrr.

My temps...on the other hand....are higher than they have EVER been in this 8 month process. So that's something, I hope.

SUPER HAPPY CONGRATS to those w/ the BFPS!!!!

ME!
Still in, but losing hope... I'm 12dpo today, with a BFN this AM. UGH! I swear when/if (?) AF comes, I'm going to be a ridiculous fool bawling like a baby. :
sigh.

I guess I shouldn't get my hopes down yet, as I still have until Monday before AF is "scheduled" to show her ugliest side. I mentioned earlier (I think on a different thread, sorry, I lost track and I might be repeating myself), I didn't have my usual dull crampy feeling after O day this time. Also, no pms bloating and gas as i usually do in the early dpo's. My cervix feels soft, and I felt like it was too early to soften before AF- maybe AF will come early (ARG!) I don't know. I thought I was doing good. I was also trying SO HARD to not obsess about symptoms, but GEEEESH! It's so hard to not notice everything! Oh well.... We'll just wait and see. and wait and wait and wait and...

I hope for a miracle for you!

AFM: Temp went back up this morning! Still crampy and AF feeling but no sign of her yet. My LP is officially longer today than the last time so that's good.

How does my chart look?

I'm OUT ! Finally, after an unexpected 3 week wait, AF arrived yesterday evening. At least we get to start over. I definitely enjoy this part of the cycle more than the TWW. I think the tooth extraction and the necessary ibuprofen caused the delay. I will be using OPKs next time around though, as I really would like to KNOW that I'm O-ing (even though I think I am).

Congratulations to Penstamon and Blissful Maia! :

learnlovebe - Hope it really was a line!

I think I'll start a waiting to O thread mid to late November, and all of us with AF visiting can relocate there to wait it out until the next TWW. Hoping to see more BFPs!

Well... my last period was wonky and I haven't been charting for a few months, so it's hard to say. I *never* spot before AF, but I did for a few days last month, so I don't know when, exactly, to consider the beginning of AF. I usually ovulate around day 18, and I'm pretty sure I felt ovulation pains on the 3rd... normally, my LP is 10-12 days, so.... that means... sometime this weekend... tested today and got a BFN, my boobs don't feel full anymore, but they are still sensitive... so who knows?

If I am... cool. If I'm not, cool. I'm good either way.

kalishanti, your chart looks good! Granted, I am so NOT an expert in charting and temps, so my opinion probably doesn't mean much.

lisko, sorry af decided to grace you w/ her presence. ((HUGS)))

I must have been seeing things yesterday, becaues I took another test this morning, a first response (Is there an acronym for those?), and bfn.

*running to go pull it out of the garbage and check it again, just to be sure*

yup, still a definite BFN.

My temps are still high...98.6 2 days in a row, which is still the highest my am temps have been in 8 months of charting.

However, I would have to stretch to say I've had any symptoms. There are 3 instances I guess I could count: 1) for a brief moment, earlier this week I was hyper-sensitive to smell. I was like I could smell EVERYTHING that was in the room. But, that hasn't happened yet.
2) the last Saturday night (only 5dpo) I just about fell asleep on the couch. I NEVER do that, I'm the night owl, always up late, my dh always falls asleep on the couch.
3) i felt a slight achy feeling down in my "lower region". the other night, just for a minute or two.

That's IT. I would barely consider them symtoms if I wasn't trying to reach for it! MY boobs don't hurt, I've got energy (well, I have to, I'm packin for our vacation, errrr, visit to my in-laws).
I'm rambling now.

I"m testing again in the AM~ agh! I'm a glutton!

GAH! So today I spotted... a little but with EWCM?!? : I've never had that before.... so if I'm not PG, something very weird is happening for me this cycle. I absolutely did not imagine the cramping 5 dpo, which was bad enough I wanted ibuprofen. I did NOT imagine my boobs swollen and very sensitive, especially since I woke up one day and they felt completely normal again. I'm also not imagining this EWCM/spotting business, which is weird for me. Blech.

More than anything, I hate not knowing. I figure I'll know here pretty quick, when AF shows up full force, which is what I'm expecting now. So I think I'll call this 2WW done for me, unless I have even more weirdness. Who knows?

Thank you, ladies for letting me crash your waiting party! Congrats to those needing congrats and good luck to those needing good luck!

BFN this morning (TCOYF says I'm 12 DPO, FF says 13DPO). No spotting. Creamy, kinda eggy CM. Cervix firm and closed. Temps high.

No more testing until Tuesday if AF holds off. At least my LP is lengthening, right?

Next cycle, I'm not going to test until 16DPO or after. And I'm not going to temp after ovulation is confirmed (maybe until 5-6DPO). This is wayyyy too stressful, especially since I thought we had a really good chance this month.

Good luck to all of us still waiting!

BFN this morning. I'm starting to lose hope. My temps went down a little bit this morning, but they're still pretty high for me, so I don't know what to think. I wish I could just KNOW, you know?

Wow, exciting! Good luck!!!

This is only our first month ttc after bcp. Due for my period around Tuesday but not 100% b/c first month off of pill. I've had weird symptoms though--sheer exhaustion, starving when I should be full, butterflies in stomach, lower back pain one day, really weak earlier this week, really burpy too. Trying not to obsess but that's nearly impossible! This morning took a test and got a bfn. Knew it was too soon to tell but really wanted to try anyway. I'll give it a few more days and see what happens.
