Congratulations!

I did a stick test this evening, and I believe a saw a faint, faint line - not totally sure yet.
I will test again Tues morning.

I hope to be able to join the May group soon!

Are you talking about BFP? BFP stands for Big Fat Positive. BFN is Big Fat Negative.

no not yet, I don't feel like spending lots of money, haven't gotten to the $$ tree store, and haven't decided on a midwife so I can't go to an office yet.

I really do think I'm pregnant, but DH and I both feel a bit like we can't start fully celebrating yet. (although I have already read through a book of baby names - who would have thought there were so FEW baby name options in a book that is 400 pages long?)

Maybe I should splurge and get another test.

I am kind of enjoying this quiet feeling of uncertainty, very different than how I felt with DS.

Be lonely no more Ms. Missy! I had originally posted my first thread in the 'Help Me I'm Lost!' part of the forums. I was writing a reply to all of the nice mamas out there when I decided I just had to do this test right then and there. This was Monday I do believe when lo and behold, BFP, really fast. Could not contain myself and wrote a tiny word river in that post about how excited I am! They say I'm due around May 1, end of April. Many congratulations to you!!!

Well, I'm not quite sure. Here are the facts that I know:

my cycle has been a bit wonky the past few months, I am usually 28 days, very regular. I believe due to traveling a lot, my cycle has shortened (approx 26 days). Also, my fertility has changed from 5 full days of fertile cervical fluid to questionable approx a day.

I believe my luteal phase remains at 16 days.

last period 7/27

baby making sex 8/6 (fertile signs much earlier than expected)
ovulation pain 8/9

any ideas?

Hmm, I'm not sure. But with the bd on 8/6 and ovu pain 8/9 I'd say you're probably due around when I am, May 2. I'm pretty certain that I ovulated on the 9th, however I had my ovulation pain several days before. Not sure if that was really ovu pain or just something else though.

Yeah I feel pretty good. Not having that many yucky symptoms, just really hurty breasts and a little heartburn. But right around AF I usually get this stuff anyway, the breast thing more than anything so nothing really out of the ordinary. I guess I'm not necessarilly hoping for one or the other (Little Pea here will be my first) but everyone around me has girls so that would be pretty sweet as far as clothes and stuff goes. I'm so with excitement! I'm learning my way around the posts and everything so I've been seeing alot of great advice and you ladies have helped me out quite a lot! Congrats, congrats to you!!! kisha-mae the wife of a hunka, hunka burnin' love
