well it's darker today. and I totally feel pg. I've been feeling pg since about 2dpo! when I got the weird taste in my mouth around 6dpo I just knew it.
dh suffered through many of my evap line scrutinies when we were ttc#2, and he wasn't afraid to tell me "there's no line!"
this time he completely agrees there's a pink line, we just don't know if it's going to stick.
I'm being treated for Lymes disease so I was taking lots of things and will most likely be on abx through this pregnancy. I see a doctor an hour away specifically for that, and i haven't called yet because i'm afraid what he's going to say. Lyme can do really bad things so that's why I'm not sure if this is going to stick.
The other thing is I'm in the middle of getting some dental work done, among other things I have a cracked mercury filling so that's really freaking me out.
Well I'm going to get it over with and call my Lyme doc now, wish me luck.

I guess I'm pretty late on this but I was hoping I could join. I've got early cramping, it started yesterday, but no bleeding. It's really unusual for me, I don't think I've ever had this happen or if it did I guess I didn't notice.


ETA and that was my 50th post, woohoo

I caved and bought a test, make that 5 test (I didn't want to have to go back and dollar store test are great!) I took one before I even got home and didnt' see anything until after the 3 minute mark and then I *thought* I saw a very light line, in fact I still think I see it. Not sure if it's just an evaporation line or something more, I'm kinda getting excited...going to test again in the morning

Uh, Hi I didn't even know this thread was here--but, wow, I'm glad to see it! I hope it's ok to tag along!

I have three lovely children--two girls and a boy. I feel like our family definitely could be complete. In fact, dh had the consultation for his vasectomy this morning....except...my period is no where in sight. I expected it two days ago. Even though I'm nursing, I'm pretty regular.

I wake up so many times at night (gotta start thinking about nightweaning!) that I can't accurately chart temps, but I chart fluid and cervical position. I've been charting for years. I'm fairly confident in what I see.

We had a condom failure 1dpo this cycle.

I'm feeling kinda panicky. I haven't tested yet. I was out today, but I didn't buy one b/c my girls were with me and I didn't want to have the conversation. They're well versed in reproduction, but if I actually am pregnant with baby number FOUR, I'm going to have to hold it close for a while!

I thought I'd go out this evening and get one, but dh had a meeting after work, and then the baby's bedtime was sabotaged by a late afternoon snooze in the car, and before I knew it was 10pm.

So, tomorrow. Surely buying a pregnancy test is the best way to get my period, right?!?

Back on the 2ww. DH and I have a hard time breaking away in the heat of the moment to slip on the condom. I am 4 months PP, but I AF has yet to return. I am feeling very, um, moist down there (sorry TMI) ... and I'm getting congested in my nose like I did when I was first pregnant before.

I am currently 1 week past possible conception. (Can't do DPOs, because I'm not sure if I'm Oing yet PP ...) I'm going to test next Tues. ... which coincidentally happens to be our wedding anniversary.

We would welcome a 2nd baby and have talked about having a 2nd baby. The timing wouldn't be so great, but I would just love, love, love another LO.

I am here too. My period is a week late. A couple weeks ago I had some brownish spotting....and I currently have a yeast infection (sorry if tmi) The YI happened at the beginning of all 3 of my pregnancies. I keep getting headaches....Im beyond tired all the time, and certain foods are not tasting good anymore.
Im not testing till Saturday.
Im really scared, and so not ready to do this again. I had severe PPD after my 3rd, and I got an IUD because I/we felt done, but not comfortable with permanent methods. Dh is thrilled at the possibility. I dont even have health insurance....I kept getting denied coverage through several companies because of past issues with depression. I have to wait one more year to apply again.

If you are pregnant, try getting pregnancy medicaid through your state. That's what I had to do.

I hope everyone gets the result you want!

DanelleB - you don't mess around do you! Congratulations on your double blessing! How are you feeling?



Sorry to hijack. I don't belong here, I just lurk all the time. I love how we women love to play such complicated mind games with ourselves. I've convinced myself I was pg so many times over the years.

Those of you waiting to find out: big hugs and I hope you get the results you want.

Congratulations! How exciting!

I'm still on hold. BFN--no sign of AF. I'll poas again if I don't see anything by Sunday, and then I'll chalk it up to nursing and not worry about it for a while. Or try not to

I'll stick around for a few days. Just a feeling. Not late yet, not even close really. Just a few symptoms, like nausea and food aversions like whoa.

Hello,
Jumping into the conversation I have two amazing girls (4 and 8 mos) After DD1 I didn't get AF for 18 months yippee! However, DD2 is such a good sleeper (I knew I should have been waking her to nurse at night ) I got AF at 4 mos PP. I do not chart at all, I am terrible I don't even chart a little, note to self start charting. We use the withdral method. After looking at this fabulous pregnancy wheel my MW just created I realized that AF is somewhere between 1-2 wks. late. So that's the story I feel what could be some symptoms or what could be all in my head or just PMS so at this point I don't know. I took a .99 store test (love those!) a few days ago and didn't see anything but my daughter being her tiddy self threw it away before 3 minutes when she went potty after me. So at any rate, that's my story ...

Yep! Twins! The shock has finally worn off and I'm starting to get a little excited (it's been about a month since we found out). I guess my body knew that this was its very last chance to be preggers so it decided to finish with a bang! LOL What's ironic is that if this had been a singleton pregnancy, DH probably wouldn't be very interested, but he's totally into it this time.

Congrats Kangaroomum!

I have to agree. I suffered with serious anxiety and depression for years. Taking fish oils/flax oil and B vitamins has really helped me.

I tested yesterday and thought I saw a line, if I held it just it right...tested again tonight and didn't have to hold it at quite as much of an angle...

We'll see, I'll test again in the morning with FMU and see what happens then.

Oh! Here's where I belong.

We, um, weren't so careful on CD 8 and 9, I O'd early (12 or 13 - wasn't charting or anything, just paying attention to CM and pains.)

And though we're SO NOT ttc . . . I just have this feeling.

But I also recently got the baby-lust again, so perhaps it's all in my head. . . Oh, well, I'll know in a couple of weeks.

Um. I'm gonna hang out here for a bit. Definitely not trying (I have a paragard iud) but I'm late (still nursing dd#2, so that's not entirely impossible), nauseous, crampy, bloated, dizzy, tomatoes taste weird (this happened with both my pregnancies), and I'm ... uh ... FREAKING OUT. I had very light spotting off-and-on starting 10 days ago, but nothing for the last 2-3 days. I've felt like my period is going to start any second for the last 10 days, but it still hasn't. I'm seriously scared to DEATH. Too scared to buy a test. Stupid, I know, since I'm sure as soon as I poas my period will start.

Well, I poas Friday PM and it was negative. No period, though. I poas Saturday AM and ... well ... there's *something* there. Evap line, maybe? It's really, really, really faint. Still no sign of AF, though, and MAN do I feel like crap. I'm gonna go buy some more tests at lunch.

Looks like I'm here by myself, but I'll post an update anyway ...

2 more tests yesterday afternoon -- 2 more bfn's. Still no af, and I swear I'm having the *exact* kinds of pains I had in early pg with dd#2 (round ligament & hooha pains). Still nauseous off-and-on. And dd#2's nursing has gotten SO weird. She switches sides, like, every 10 seconds. It's driving me crazy!

So, 2 more tests this AM. The Dollar Store one is a bfn. The Equate one ... well, there's something there. Again, it's really, really, really faint. Maybe another evap line? Gah! Would af just COME already!?! I mean, I've taken like 6 tests. The 1st one was supposed to trigger af, right? That's what has always worked in the past ....

Where's the dang nail-biting smiley when you need it?

When I read that first line, I felt my heart drop all the way to my uterus. I'm sure the resulting crash will get af kickstarted again, so thanks!

After 2 more bfn's this AM, I'm declaring myself not-pregnant. I'm still sick as all get-out, and no sign of af, but the tests don't lie. *sigh* Of course, I convinced myself over the last week that I *was* pregnant and now, even though I KNOW we're not ready for another baby yet, I'm completely disappointed.

I'll join for a while, which means that AF will start tonight!! It's day 36 and no symptoms either way. Boobs are a little sore, but that could be from all the poking to see if they were sore in the first place! Cervix is nice and low... but still...day 36. That's 6 days longer than my previous longest cycle. I O'd on the 5th or 6th of the month..... Hmmmm

Not real sure I'm ready for this!! I wanted a puppy!!!
