I've not really said where I'm at in my cycle since I started posting here, mostly because I couldn't deal with it at the time... But I'm now at 27 days from when I lost my last baby, and I know for sure I ovulated on day 12 of this cycle (so I'm 15 dpo). Actually I ovulated from both sides... First time ever!
However, I have never gotten a bfp before 41 days (27 dpo(my twins) -and has been as late as 35dpo), so I'm just now entering into the 2nd tww that I always have. Hate it, hate it. OB gave me permission two weeks ago to come in for blood work whenever I know I'm pregnant (usually 3-4 dpo-NEVER Been wrong), but with an hcg of only 1000-3000 at 8 weeks (checked because of spotting/bleeding with my pregnancies that DID survive) l don't know that there's any hcg to w up in the blood work back that far!!!

Thanks. smile.gif

I would get bloodwork after your expected period. You only need a 5 to get a positive level with that, so probably it'd show up. Just my opinion. I hope you get your BFP (blood or urine) soon!

LivingSky 7DPO today, 7 days to go and then I'll test... not sure I'll make it that long this month. Not that I have any symptoms at all. smile.gif

Thank you Starfish....it is so disappointing and sad, but then I look at my 3 beautiful healthy children and I feel guilty for being sad...i think of those ttc who haven't yet, and i think of those, like my dear friend, who have sick children (her 6 year old has been battling cancer for 3 years) and i feel like a heel for being sad at all....which makes the whole thing worse.....but i am trying to just be in the moment today and be sad and then move on to prep for this month of trying....this month would give me an aug 1 due date and my oldest is an aug baby and we have 2 feb babies and he has always wanted another aug baby...so maybe that is the plan....we shall see....

Karin, I 'm so sorry :( It really is disappointing in a way that is hard to explain.  I'm thinking about you today and I hope you allow yourself some to be sad.

Well, as expected AF showed up last night.  I am feeling so disappointed this month.  I had really felt pregnant for a few days - things felt different, not sure if it was a chemical pregnancy or not....I know it was only our third cycle trying this time but I am kind of a mess this morning.....oh well.....we will be trying and waiting again soon enough......

Congrats Dayiscoming!!! Today is day 32 for me and AF will most likely be here before I go to bed, or maybe tomorrow.....Last week at this time I was pretty sure I was pregnant, really did not feel typical PMS stuff and just felt, well, different....but things seemed to have changed and I am feeling much more like my typical PMS.  We shall see.....

I understand, it's just one of those things.

I tested today and it was BFN. Surprise, surprise. (only 8 DPO) and never have gotten THAT early of a positive. Silly me. hahaha

I'll try to force myself to wait a couple more days before testing again. I think I may be able to test postive (if pregnant) around 10-12 dpo. Don't know why I had to waste a test. At least it was a wondfo and they are really cheap.

Nice to see you all. It's easier to wait in groups. :)

Hi. I am now on day 36 of my period. Still no BFO after many tests. I'm starting to feel pretty negative.
 

10-22-2012 11:51 AM
LivingSky Well I'm officially in the 2WW now so thought I'd come hang out here. 3DPO today, I'll test on November 2nd if AF hasn't arrived. I'm generally pretty good about not testing early so hope to stick with that! I hate wasting tests smile.gif

Starfish11 It did get quiet. I lurk here constantly and try to catch up with you all every night before I go to bed. I have missed the chatter smile.gif we are not actively trying but not actively preventing. I really want a third and feel that it will happen this year. My lp is short, though, so I will need to work on that.

There's a possibility this month but I don't feel a strong " this is it" intuition. I am four days away from AF.

Hoping for more positive news from you all joy.gif

I hate waiting lol.....I am not really experiencing my normal pms symptoms...much much less crampy....my boobs are sorer than usual though and have been for much longer.....I was kind of thinking I might be pregnant, but now I am not so sure....I had a really messed up cycle last Spring (related to my Lyme disease we think) and I am starting to fear that is what this is....If AF doesnt show up before then I will test of Friday.....hope everyone else is waiting well!

Taking it one day at a time sounds like a great plan.  I hope your intuition is right and that this is the time you get your take-home baby. 

10-22-2012 07:54 AM
dayiscoming2006

This thread got awful quiet. I'm still waiting. I have a feeling I am pregnant based on my symptoms and I've been right every time with all my other 4 pregnancies, so most likely I'm right, but you never know. Waiting is hard to do, but I'm trying to be patient. I'm not quite as impatient as I was last month because now, I know even if I get a BFP, that doesn't mean I get a take home baby. Sad, but true. So, I'm trying to  take one day at a time.

nerissav - Oh, ok. Not a big fan of DK then? I looked at your chart and it went back up. That IS exciting. :)

 

I'm hoping for ya countrymama, sounds possible.

 

 

Even with the not so wonderfully accurate temporal thermometer, I was able to notice a thermal shift and pretty much know when I O'd, so yey. I'm 3 dpo if my calculations are right and now the long wait...

My back is killing me today and my temperate dipped super low.  http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/1ef585/ 

Maybe an implantation dip?? Looks exciting!!

I'm 8 DPO as well. My luteal phase is a bit shorter than most and I PMS for a solid week lol I am usually PMSing by 5 or 6 DPO. No PMS signs yet!! Not even a pimple (I usually break out). I have been cramping on and off this whole luteal phase though? And I've been tired but I just kicked a head cold and work has been crazy busy so that could be why.

I realize the thermometer I'm using isn't giving me accurate temps, so unfortunately, I have no idea what's going on anymore. Blah... annoying. Don't by a temporal thermometer. I had the exergen one. - $34 thermometer, kinda makes me mad.

I just bought a basal thermometer at walmart and will start using that instead.

I'm a mouth breather and do not want to stick that in the hoo hah, so will under arm readings be accurate? I guess I'll start temping right away, though without starting at the beginning of my cycle, I won't have much to go on. Might be useful to have those reading when I go into my next cycle though.

10-16-2012 04:39 AM
dayiscoming2006

Well, I think I am officially in the 2 WW. I thought I was before because of spotting mid-cycle I figured was O spotting, but wasn't. I have a temperature shift and if it goes on for the next 2 days I can confirm, but I never got this high of a temp and it would make sense and give me a 13 day luteal phase, which is far more normal. lol

I jumped the gun before, but now I've made it.

 

 

 

Too funny nerissav about your sister. Yeah, testing can drive you batty. I went through that last cycle. I had more patience with my other pregnancies. LOL Now that I have an actual idea when I ovulated and when I might test positive, I know how long I have to wait and won't be wasting my tests.

 

I see you aren't in DK anymore then. Must be state-side.
