i think i am here too. i am kind of hoping that by posting here i will coax AF into coming. on the other hand, i am kind of hoping that i am pregnant.

usually i know when i ovulate, but this time i'm not sure. it was sometime last week. i lost my thermometer (or rather, my 3yo lost it) and so i'm not sure of the exact day.

my littlest is 11 months old and so it is probably too early for me to be pregnant again. but a new baby, ahhhh, the thought always makes me smile.

Oceans Eve - I'm glad things worked out the way you wanted it seems. Opening up conversation is always a good thing.

I tested this morning 12DPO BFN, but my tem went up again, normally it starts to go down today (normally meaning every cycle but this one). ARRG PP was right sticks in the back yard would be just as helpful. AF is due in 2 days, if she does not show up I'm not sure if I will test again or wait till 18 dpo

Who am I kidding if my temp is still high or climbing on sat I will test again. If it is + we need to find a place to live pronto, the guy we live with is anti baby.

Can I sneak over here too?

I spotted this thread in new posts and decided that I had to join.
I don't chart but I"m usually very aware of when I ovulate. I don't have any idea what happened this month. I think I was just so busy I wasn't paying attention. Actually I have been so busy dh hasn't gotten much attention either. The few times we DTD, we used protection. So wasn't the least bit worried. Then on Sat. I had some light spotting which I usually get 3-5 days before af. So I have been waiting for af to come the last few days. Then suddenly yesterday, the light bulb over my head blinked on, and I realized that af is almost 2 weeks late!! Where have I been, I usually know when its even 1 day late!
So now I am raking my brain trying to figure this out. So far I have no pg symptoms. The only thing I've had is a very vivid dream on Sun. night that I was pg. I don't believe in dreams and such, it was just weird. Then other day I commented that the cat food stank and my dh looked at me and said,"you keep commenting on the smell of things, are you pregnant?" Mind you he would be beyond thrilled! I am the one who says I'm content with 3.
I might run to the dollar store today to get a test. If I waste money on a test that ususally gets af to show up!

I would have sworn that af would be here by this morning due to cramps/backache etc... Instead cramp are gone & nothing... Oh & I almost puked after having supper last night & I had pulsing pulling pain in my groin...: Very freaked out at this point... I have to go to Dr. today, so I'll ask him what he thinks...Hopefully I don't get yelled at

Oh, sweetie, you're toast! My first pregnancy symptom tends to be a dream of being pregnant or a positive pregnancy test. Dreams can just be ways of your body telling your mind something it already knows!

Good luck!

I only have a second so I will reply to the newer posts later (sorry!).

I took another one this morning and BFN. I think. As soon as the dye started to go across I saw another line...but it's not really colored...so I think it's an evap line. I feel like AF is coming.

I'll keep testing once I spot..but I spot every cycle before AF so I know it will be over then.

I'll be back later.

Isn't fertility such a roller coaster? You hope hope hope that you are not preggie, then you start getting used to the idea and then when it doesn't turn out that way, you feel that sadness....

I know I will be both relieved and sad If I am not pregnant.

I have had heartburn for the past couple of days, I never have heartburn. I thought is from one of the supplements I was taking, but I didn't take it today and I still have it. UGH, if i am not pregnant this is one funky cycle.

I'm out. I'm spotting. I NEVER spot while pregnant.

I'm so sad now. I was so hoping to be able to tell my family at our camping trip next weekend too.

Oh well. I"m currently discussing with my husband about becoming quiverfull. And he's actually listening. It was pressed upon me when all this pregnancy stuff came up. Honestly, before I thought I was...I wanted NO more children. I was pretty much done. So *something* convinced me to feel otherwise.

Anyway, good luck to the rest of you who are waiting to find out!!

nak

pretty much, i either haven't O'd yet (at CD 38) or i am pg. i'm waiting till 2 weeks post our last unprotected sex to test. i am not charting officially. we had unprotected sex twice, two weekends in a row. the first time i thought i was nowhere near O'ing, second time i was spotting (i never do) so thought it was AF. it wasn't.

spotting could've possibly been implantation, i guess. i haven't POAS at all.

no symptoms. i'm leaning toward i just never O'd yet, but you never know. i don't want to be pg. maybe ever

so why'd we risk it at all? i am so irritated with myself!!!

Well i'm still in the waiting game.

Kimmiepie, sorry to hear AF showed up I was really rooting for you. We both has DS born 2/06.

Anyway, The wait is driving me crazy. One day I am positive I am, and the next I'm not sure. I had some menst. type cramping yesterday, but I was also dealing with the stomach flu. And I felt terrible and nauseous all day. It kinda scared me. I was horribly sick with DD for the first three months and I wondered if i was pg if I would be sick like that again. This time I have 2 little ones to care for. So the thought of having morning sickness and taking care of my DD and DS totally freaked me out. It was kind of a reality check. Then how am I going to juggle 3 kids at once. I feel like I just got use to having 2! :

Okay...take a deep breath...There i go freaking myself out before I even know if I'm pg or not. And I was the one who wanted to pg.

So is the life of a worry wort. I am trying to wait until Sunday, which will be 4 days before AF, before I test. Here's making it to Sunday...

Ick! I never should have posted on this thread. I was just trying to be helpful to mention my newest find in paranoia tests, but now I sit here with a massive headache (hormone related?), lower backache, sick stomach and indigestion (even though I haven't eaten hardly anything all day). I tested this morning, but at 9 DPO it's much too early to really tell anything.

I still have spotting,cramping & a really bad backache from time to time... & the spotting gets worse when we bd & then goes away... I just want my stupid af to come so I can start trying again...


I hope the rest of you get the results your hoping for

maybe I'll just not test at all and just figure out that I am pregnant when it's ready to pop out!

I am either 12dpo or 6dpo....all I know is that I was ovulating around those times that we were together and my libido was thru the roof.....

I've been lurking on your thread ... thinking "oh, these poor saps"

Now, you've got me freaked out!! I'm EBFing my 8 month old. No idea when to expect my first PPAF. With DD it was about 16 months I think.

For the last three days though I've been very off. First of the 3 days, felt nauseous after a bowl of cereal for lunch. Then started feeling very drained of energy. Second day, add headache (eyeball ache more like it), weakness, fatigue, nausea after bowl of cereal, no appetite. Today, better, but not much appetite, and little queasy after lunch.

We have not been having much in the way of traditional intercourse, and when we do he pulls out. I don't even know if I'm fertile again.

Of course, this is also how I felt when I had a stomach parasite

So, here's hoping it's a return of the parasite!!

See I posted, and guess what? AF showed up this morning with a vengence!
No idea why my cycle was so off this month.
It is such a roller coaster! Now it really has me thinking though if we do want one more, it has to be soon. Dh really wants one more, I'm so one the fence. But I'll be 39-YIKES in 2 weeks! My baby making time is drawing to a close.
Hope everyone gets the results they want(or dont want-LOL)!

Okay so a bunch of people are "out of the game" for lack of a better phrase. Sorry no offense. So, who does that leave...Me, fireflies and twilight girl? Really that's it. Everyone else has recieved their AF.

Well hopefully i'll know something soon, but AF is not due for me until May 1st. All I know is I was having cramping today and I am usually hungry all day but the past week I can't seem to think of anything that I want to eat. Then when i finally eat i get full really fast and my stomach aches for a long time afterwards. Today I am having a " I think I'm pregnant" day. not to mention I have been having a bad case of the dropsies. I drop just about everything I try to pick up. I had a bad case when I was preggers with DD.

I sure would be weird if no one on this thread ended up being pg. But I think I'm going to be the one who get the short straw.

Yeah, and I don't even know to know if I'm "late" or when AF is "due." If I don't feel better tomorrow, I'll POAS ... just because it's cheaper than getting tested for parasites

if it's negative I'll call in the 'scrip for antiparasite medicine!

ETA: fireflies: I'm also having digestive symphonies going on ... but, also consistent with stomach parasites

You can add me to the game, had ahem, a nice evening of unprotected sex while at Disney (my dd is a Disney souvenir), and that was exactly two weeks ago and no AF, so we'll see what happens, if AF doesn't arrive by hmm, Monday, I will take a test and see, and if it is positive, I will have a heart attack :-), but will need to stay strong to catch my husband when he passes out

Time to play Pregnant Or Parasite:

Intense thirst and dry eyes ... pregnant or parasite?

I just finished a bottle of water (after I don't know how many other bottles today), and my eyes are feeling gummy dry and throat is dry. I just drank a bottle of water!

It's got to be a parasite right?

LOL-pregnant or parasite!

Wellll....I tested this morning. That would have been 14dpo or 8dpo depending on exactly when I ovulated...and





was negative! Whew! Am I outta the woods yet on the 8dop though???
But get this...since I thought I was already pregnant we had unprotected sex last night...I am sooo laughing my ass off. We sound like complete idiots who have no idea what fertility is or how babies are made!

Part of me (I think that same part of me that had libido through the roof like a wild woman) is sad though

So, is 8dpo too early for a Kroger test?
Good Luck to the rest of ya!
