Hello July 2011 DDC!

I will be lurking here and waiting to see if I join you ladies. I'm not testing until next week.

Congrats to everyone with July 2011 EDDs!

lurking here also. we had 2 oopsies this month, so here i am. dh is "done" having kids, but won't get the V, which is fine with me, b/c i'm not done yet! (a part of me is done, but a bigger and bigger part of me is not, yk?) anyway, i have 26 day cycles and our oopsies happened on cd9 and 15, so we'll see (dd1 and ds were conceived on cd13, dd2 on cd15). i bought a bunch of dollar tree tests, and plan on using every.single.one.of.them. LOL!!!

good luck lurkers!!! and congratulations july ddc'ers!!!

Thanks, y'all!

Any other lurkers out there?

Keri, I am sending you good vibes. Love those dollar tree tests! I got some internet cheapies so that I can obsessively test. This is my 4th cycle of trying, and I got wise to the cheap tests last cycle.

do the internet cheapies really work? when can you start using them (what cycle day?! how sensitive are they?!)

let's talk obsessing symptoms... my uterus is very weird today. like i'm in the middle of the first or second day of af, but i'm not due for af until monday. this HAS happened to me once before, and i wasn't pg, but in light of the 2 oopsies, i'm all "is this a symptom?!" anyone else experiencing some "hhhhmmmm.... could it be?!" symptoms?!

i tell you... the easiest was my ds... i KNEW i was pg with him, even when it was so early that the test showed a bfn. my uterus was BUZZING, like a low level current of electricity was running through it... bizarre!!! AND i had 2 dark spots on my upper lip (melasma)... i looked like a member of the gostapo or something. one day i just looked in the mirror and was like "what in the hell is THAT?!!! is that a moustache?!!!" but it wasn't, it was pigment... greeeeat. i KNEW that i was pg, b/c what else could possibly cause melasma and a buzzing uterus?! LOL!!! the tests kept coming back negative, but i was like "whatever... i'll just keep testing until i get my positive." (which never came until a couple days AFTER af was due!!!) (with both dd's, i had NO symptoms. NONE. drove me batty! i ended up getting some m/s with bad food aversions with dd2, but in the beginning... nothing, except my uterus was cramping, like af was coming. i kept going to the bathroom, checking to see if there was blood.)

how sensitive are the dollar tree tests? can you detect like 4 days before your af? is it as sensitive as frer? or not, but almost as good?

ok, katie just said what my uterus feels like in the other thread... "heavy uterus". that's what it feels like... like blood engorged. like my pelvic cavity is filled up or something. i hope i make sense.

I don't think the cheapies or the dollar trees are as sensitive as FRERs. That's a question for the TTC board, lol!

When are you testing, Keri?

Hi Sourire!
tbh, i'm testing every other day until tuesday (af is due monday), as i'm just really curious as to which day i got pg, from our two oopsies, if i am pg. i know it's not conclusive, but i figured that if the bfp came very soon, then it probably was the first oops... later, then it was the second. when are you testing?

I hope you get your BFP soon!

I'm not testing until Monday morning, 11 DPO. I have no symptoms, just hoping!

Just wanted to say I got a BFP at 10 DPO with an internet cheapie. I didn't even have to squint too much so they must be reasonably sensitive.

so, symptoms... my uterus is heavy, like af is coming any minute. and my left breast keeps getting a shooting feeling in it, on and off. i'm extrememly moody (like PMS on freakin' crack!!!) and tired (which is very rare for me. i usually just keep going and going and going...).

anyone else?

I'm lurking here too! We've been pretty laid-back about ttc, but I think maybe this is the month. I have been feeling really nauseated off and on the past few days (like dry-heaving in the bathroom nauseated). And tired. I don't usually obsess over every little twinge, so this is unusual for me. Waiting to test until next week (if I can wait that long!).

Good baby vibes to all! How exciting!

hi NicaG!

and i'm the same way... i usually might notice "symptoms" but am really obsessing this time. i just strongly feel that there is another child out there waiting for me to be his mommy, so if i'm not pg this time, i think that it will be soon... if not, then that's ok also. i am content with what i have... if i never have another it would be ok, i feel very blessed. (but what to do with these feelings that there IS another out there?!... hhhmmmmm...)

Okay...I'm ready to admit that I, too, am lurking! I'll be testing the 5th if I make it that long! I don't feel pregnant, and have been having major AF cramps and severe *itchiness which I always seem to get before a period, but I do remember feeling like AF was going to come at any minute with my other pregnancies!

umm...yes, me too.

It could be some kind of hormonal shift b/c I haven't had a PPAF yet (DS is 20mo). However, I do have quite a few of the symptoms and will be testing 10/30.

Hey, I'm in sort of the same boat. Testing negative, but AF is nowhere to be seen. She's at least 1 day late, and I usually spot 24 hours before she comes, and nothing so far. For my own sanity, I'm assuming I'm not pg and that I'll start AF sometime today or tomorrow.

I sure am tired of being in limbo! I'm sure you are too!
