Hello! I thought I belonged in the August DDC, but here in the beginning of May is where I go according to the little pg wheel. Math never was my strong suit!

I got my Wednesday, 10DPO.

Keeping my fingers crossed to have lots of company here!

Maybe if I post here then af will show up and I'll just know! lol I'm trying to convince dh to go to the dollar store for some pg tests. Af usually shows up after you take one of those, right? I'm hoping to be lucky one of these times!
I'm 14 dpo

Me too! Me too! Me too!: I hope that I get to join you, but right now I am only 13DPO. Tomorrow is due. I am so so scared that she is actually coming. I do feeeeeeeel PG though. You know how it is, I am afraid that I might of convinced myself but not really be. I am not ready to take a HPT yet, because in the past they have come up false negative.

Sorry to go on and on. So glad to have others that know what I am going through.

I'll join you beautiful women! I'm only 7 days PO, so I've got another week to wait (if I can make it that long! ) I'm hoping that my upset tummy today means something besides just eating bad food!

good luck to everyone waiting!
I am waiting to test again too--tested this morning and I knew I was wasting a test, I am only 8dpo.... but I couldn't stand it anymore.

The symptom I have been having is cramping for the last week, and totally exhausted. I am afraid to get my hopes up though.

etoile- i'm right there with ya! i'm 10 dpo and tested this afternoon.... negative. it's so disappointing even though i know it's still probably just too early to show. cramping here as well, but mainly last week, and i've noticed my stomach's been really sensitive to things i normally eat. i really hope it's not all in my mind! sending lots of good baby vibes to everybody!!

Yay! We finally tested at 16dpo and positive. Phew! I'm not a total nutcase!! The test turned positive in about 10 seconds, before the "test window" was even wet. neat.

That puts my due date at May 5th (mothers day is the 6th!). My brother was born on Mother's Day, and he was my mother's first. I think that if that happens to me that it'll be pretty funny. But, since it's my first aren't they usually a bit late? Hubbies birthday is May 19th... and my bro is May 9th. Ugh, May is going to be busy busy!!:

i'm waiting till next week to test, but I have VERY sore breasts, and lower back pain and I'm SO tired. I am still nursing my 9 month old, but my periods have been really regular. Could it be??? :

I'll add myself to the list. 8DPO here. Trying to decide when to test ... I was going to attempt to wait until 14-16DPO (last LPs have been 12 days), but the waiting is too hard! I have to prepare for disappointing BFN if I test too early, so just weighing the decision ... :

8 dpo here, too! Okay, I gave in and took a test. It had a verrrrrry faint line... I think. It's way too early, but I couldn't resist. My body says I am, but I could be just wishfully thinking.

I am interviewing a doctor tomorrow that does VBAC's. I needed to find a new doc, anyway, so I figure now is a good time!

My son is 9 months old and still nursing. Anyone out there in the same boat? I want to keep nursing through this pregnancy... if there is a pregnancy...:

I am cramping like I'm about to get my period, which I did with my first baby. Hoping....

i feel silly posting here but i am thinking maybe. funny thing i was laying with a headache and just wanted to DtD , trying to decide if the deed is worth moving with the killer headache. when suddenly DH kisses me (i had a pillow on my head so couldn't see) so i tell him how funny it is and he says sex is good b/c it made our beautiful girl (she was sleeping in the room) and we DtD. then he had to go work and DD#1 gets home i read her a bedtime story that asks what you wish for and she said a little brother. it was all very strange and magical and i had gossbumbs. that was the 26th. i have had some cramping and stuff since then. i am hoping but feeling silly and after dh (who doesn't want another baby) heard dd's dream he called a sex ban. i told him we could just use something now. anyways i am foolishly hoping, foolishy reading everything as a symptom and i am hoping ot to be crushed with a no. although i don't know when i will test. My DD#2 is almost 8 months and my period hasn't returned yet. so it's probably just silliness on my part.

anyways sorry for the long post i haven't told anyone yet.
