Totally happened to me on two of my pregnancies. Just have to wait a few more days or a week and try again...

We're "whatevering" right now and I sort of hope for a late spring/summer '11 baby. I haven't even ovulated yet (I think sometime this weekend--I'm not charting) but if we were to get pregnant, the online ovulation calculator says I'd be due May 30th but I always go early. So maybe! Maybe not! We'll see. I keep seeing the baby name I love all over the place...suddenly there is this big huge ad with his name on it that keeps popping up on my screen all the time! The name came from a very vivid dream last year. Plus I had a dream I gave birth last night and it was a boy! I think he's coming soon!

Well, AF did finally decide to visit... so I won't be lurking or joining this board after all. I thought that I'd be really upset, but I'm mostly relieved. Not knowing if I was pregnant or not was driving me crazy. Knowing that I'm not and get to try again is a much more comfortable place to be in.

I think I'm going to sneak in and lurk here too I'm pretty sure I O'ed this evening, so if I get pg this cycle, I'll be due May 27th. I have a great feeling about this cycle and it's the first month since we started TTC that I've been relatively stress free. So, fingers crossed that I'll be joining in for real soon!

I'm totally lurking. We did what we always try not to do on August 22 (heh), and my period was due a week ago. Nothing yet, but I absolutely feel most definitely pregnant! I spotted a bit a few days after dtd and thought it was my period starting a bit early, but nothing else happened, except occasional cramping pains, and I thought for sure it would start any time... so I just went through some highly annoying/scared days of not knowing what the heck my body was doing and it was driving me bonkers. Always on my mind. I just wanted to wait and see what happened, and that's what I'm still doing, except now it's very obvious to me that I'm pregnant. I can't be more than 2 weeks, but my stomach's bigger already! It seems to get big immediately for some reason. And I have to go to the bathroom all the time.

Anyway, I haven't tested yet just because I haven't really felt like it. I had a miscarriage that I didn't expect at all in May, so I have no expectations whatsoever. But I do feel really good and happy and tired, instead of just awful in general with my last 8 week pregnancy.. so maybe that's good. But I'm just going with the flow and enjoying each day. Thanks for listening. I haven't talked to anyone about it yet, and it's nice to get it out! I hope everyone is feeling good and taking it easy.

I was reading this article by Sarah J. Buckley in which she mentions this about testing - "In fact, from the very beginning, when we first suspect that we are creating new life in our womb, we can use this ancient 'system', and allow our bodies, rather than a technological test, to inform us. Often, the truth of our bodies will unfold gradually, allowing us the space to learn and adapt at our own pace and giving us opportunities for reflection and dreaming."

After the roller coaster last month, I totally resonate with that idea, and admire your approach Danidama.

Soo... I couldn't wait until Sunday & got my BFP Saturday morning!! Yayy!

Wow I am so excited & honestly pretty nervous all at once this time around. I LOVED being pregnant last time around & never felt better but I'm really hoping to be able to have my home birth this time & then there's the challenge of balancing a toddler & a newborn. Yikes! I guess I am getting a little ahead of myself though, after a 4wk mc last month I'm thrilled for my bfp but will probably keep things under wraps outside of this ddc for a while longer.
