Anyone else lurking in hopes of a BFP for May?

I started TTC last month but am pretty sure I mc at 4.5 weeks. You never really know why it happens but I suspect it had a lot to do with having VERY low iron & the stress of having one of my dogs put down right in the middle of the 2ww. So here I am, supplementing iron & back lurking in hopes of joining you all with a BFP for May! I O today so here’s hoping all goes well!

I'm lurking too, up until this morning I was pretty convinced I was going to be here for sure, but had some spotting this morn which is cd28 of 30ish day cycle, so I think I might be right on track to see AF in the next couple days. Who knows! I could test, but why waste the money if I can hold out a couple more days.
I think I had an early mc in June, but can't be sure, got 2 BFN's even in the midst of feeling nauseous and smelling everything w/in a mile radius, and now I feel like I had pregnancy symptoms already this month too, but didn't have any last month when we weren't trying at all. Maybe my hormones are really out of whack or I'm dreaming it all up? Anyone else have this experience?

This was me last month exactly. Tiredness, nausea, waves of acne - had it all but got 2 BFN's before AF finally came. When AF did come (right on time) though it was one of the worst I'd ever had. More bleeding than usual & even a migraine which I've never had. Spoke with my NP & she said she couldn't confirm of course but highly suspected that it was an early mc.
I was upset at first but just happy that it had happened before I ever had the chance to get excited over a BFP.
I'm really curious to see how I feel this mos as I didn't have any symptoms until much later on with my DD's pregnancy so I had thought it strange that I felt so strongly so soon after O. Each pregnancy is different though so I had chalked it up to that.

naturechicplus1 - same for me last cycle. I figured it was a conception that didn't implant right. I'm starting with some of the same symptoms this cycle already, which of course gets my hopes up!

awindes - do you know when you'll start testing? It looks like we're cycle buddies. And welcome to MDC!

I am lurking too

I am approx 12 dpo (but I don't know for sure because I am nursing my 16mo old and have not gotten my first pp af). I have a few symptoms...

Extra tired

Light cramping on an off for a few days

Irritation on my "parts" (this has happened early on in my last 2 pregnancies)

I felt a digging pain/sensation last Saturday which I am thinking *could have been* implantation (felt the same thing last pregnancy)


I think that's it for now. I have taken about 7 tests already but they are all negative. It is still early though so I am going to try to hold off on testing for a few days and see what happens

Good luck Mama's/Mama's to be!!

I don't think I could stand it to wait it out! We'll see, I might start as early as the 5th & then likely again on the 7th. Kind of a waste of $$ I know but it drives me nuts not to know. With my DD I got a brilliantly firm BFP at 13dpo so I'm kind of hoping to get at least a faint bfp by 12dpo this time around.

baileyann3 looks like you're around the same point in your cycle as mommytomahmoud & I!

yeah! Seems like it. The first day of my last period was aug 9th, so I'm going to TRY to wait until then to test. And until then I'll just obsess over every tiny symptom-y feeling I have! Lol wanna join?

I am lurking... 8dpo for me, I have a few tests on the way from babyhopes and that is the only thing preventing me from going to the store and buying some. I am trying not to test early but it's soooo hard!! I have always wanted a May baby, my birthday is in May and it's always been my favorite time of year!

Here's to bfps all around!

I just ordered mine too! i used early-pregnancy-test.com I bought 20 (thats 2-0 people!!) for .80 a pop. and they do free shipping for orders over 14.95. So 20 tests was 16 dollars! They are the blue dye ones, so I know a lot of people here don't use that kind

So here's to an um... "busy" evening for all!
& then the dreaded 2ww begins, the guys really have no clue how brutal that suspense can be! LOL never mind the 4am bleary eyed testing ('cause you're already awake so you might as well right?) when you know full well it's probably too early to tell... not that I obsess, not at all...
