jh2013 I'm back to waiting! April was the 8th month since we've be TTC. I really hope this is it. I tried doing the OPK but I would get positives twice days apart and it was aggravating and confusing. So, me and DH just decided to do BD every other day during the fertile time. It's nine days till AF is due so I'm really praying that it will happen this month! Keeping my FX for all you ladies.

writeonyogamama You're one of the first Dec mamas! Maybe it hasn't been started yet. Also try looking under new groups.

Here is the link to the April thread.


Good luck everyone!

oxford Mamablue- fingers crossed for your appointment. I hope everything becomes clear and you have a great doctor
04-02-2013 11:00 AM
oxford Oh livn- that must be a terrible disappointment. Does he understand just how much this means to you?
I hope the laid back approach works- for you and him. Maybe in not trying, it will still happen and in a way thy is less stressful for you both. Big hugs :-)

mamaBlue Livnkadesmom - I went through this with my DH, too. He didn't mean it. Turns out he absolutely hates TTC, but really wants another baby. I can relate to that. Maybe your DH feels similarly. My DH struggles with being grumpy and sad that we don't concieve easily, and so I give him his space. He gets tummy aches if I push the issue too much. Men are just as complicated as women aren't they?

AFM - BFN. No surprise. That's okay. I'm looking forward to this afternoons appt. Hopefully my DH will meet me there. He's made it such a big deal in his head that his stomach is not happy. He grumbled something about work getting in the way of everything, so I don't know if he'll make it. I'm not mad at him, but I sure wish he'd go so he can know the game plan. Knowing what's going to happen would make him feel better.

Livnkadesmom Well ladies, I feel like I am back to square one with DH. I mentioned TTC #3 to him again on Sunday. Our plan (so I thought) was to actively start TTC this summer but he told me Sunday that he doesn't want another baby. 😰 Needless to say I am devasted. I go from being very angry at him to being completely shattered. I know he loves me and hates to do this to me, but he gets so content on the way things are. Our kids are at easy, fun ages (11 and 5) and I think he just worries about having to "start" over. I have always wanted 3 children, partly due to being an only child. DH has 2 older sisters, so he sees having 3 children much differently than I do. Anyway, I put up the thermometer. We still are not doing anything to prevent, so I know he has to be open to the possibility or he would demand we do something to prevent...right? I wonder if it is the stress of timed BD that bothers him. we went through that when TTC DS. I have decided to just go with it like we have been and maybe the good Lord will allow it to just happen. Anyway, sorry for the sob story. I will be lurking and may comment every now and then. Good luck to all!

777Star Angelbaby Congrats on your bfp!!!!!
04-02-2013 04:08 AM
oxford Mama blue- good luck with the frer. Sometimes our bodies are quite contrary, so it may surprise you, mess up your diary and pop up a BFP. Fingers crossed, let us know!

Chuord- well done for holding out so long. It's lovely not to obsess, although not k owing can make it worse!! Did you take the OPK? Are you busting out the lingerie tonight!! Happy BD, the lower stress must help.

And for me, I've not got a clue!!
After my dramatic below the cover line drop on 4DPO, it went nicely back up in 5DPO, only to drop again today! I've no idea what is going on, my body hasn't done this before. I checke the temp over and over and it was adamant.

So u have been doing the only thing open to an obsessive TWW- stalking charts on FF for double dips!! Lol.
There are some pregnant charts with this pattern, and guess what? Some ovulation charts show it too. I've no clue now!! I guess I'm going to have to do it the old fashioned way and just wait.

I have sore breasts, light gentle cramping (like a tugging or pinging) on my left side and I am tripping to the bathroom to urinate every 5 mins. Whether this is pregnancy, I don't know, but it is twisted fun to obsess about a new symptom!

Hope you are all doing well? Loads of baby dust to all, here's to Christmas babies :-)
04-01-2013 10:28 PM
mamaBlue Oxford - Things look promising for you! I hope hope hope this is your month.

Chourd - I hope this month is a peaceful one for you. It's difficult to take a step away from the TTC craziness, isn't it?

AFM - 10dpo. Negative dollar tree test this AM. I'm really thinking this isn't my month. I'll use up my FRER tomorrow as planned, (get my negative,) and then it's off to the RE's office in the afternoon. He has a good reputation, and I hope he's nice. The last RE I used was pretty much just interested in the $$$$.
04-01-2013 08:50 PM

My soon to be DH found a 1200 power microscope today at the thrift store we always go to, so he got it. Of course since we're trying to conceive we decided to look at all different stuff. We checked out my CM and it was definitely progesterone, so I'm taking that a positive sign that I DID ovulate when I thought I did (3/28), and his guys can definitely swim ;)


Tomorrow will be 5DPO. I've been having cramping on and off, and DD today was kind of painful, I had cramps after :(


The TWW is so hard. I need to stay busy!

04-01-2013 03:34 PM
chuord Oxford fx your dip is the same as sparkles! I had one around 3dpo last month - but not below cover line so hugely different! (And no result obviously lol)
Dahlia - you're welcome, lol but it's soo true! Hmm baby sex, I don't know I think I'm pulling more towards a boy, but no idea really lol... I'm getting vibes for either.
Sparkle - so excited to see your u/s and see what's happening 😄 and really glad you and dahlia are still with us!
Afm - thank you so much for all the fx and hope... I have no idea about this month, I'm cd18, last month o was 19, earlier the previous one... I've been good and not temped this month, or opk'd but have had antibiotics and a low grade virus so no idea if o Is delayed? Am only just starting to get ewcm and ready to bd so ??? Lol also dh has been feeling too blah to get with it the last day or so... I'm thinking its time to cave while he's at work and opk lol... It's one thing to focus on the romance but (as I'm discovering) another one completely to have no idea what's going on! 😵 Lol
04-01-2013 02:23 PM
oxford Thank you sparkle, you are very kind. I am so enjoying watching your journey from a distance. Keep us posted on your scan :-)
04-01-2013 02:15 PM

Sparkle, woohoo!! I can't wait to see your pictures! Thanks for your guess, I'll add you to the girl tally lol winky.gif

04-01-2013 02:04 PM

Dahlia My U/S is next Tuesday, April 9. I am SO excited! My DH, DD and sister are all trying to convince me we're having twins so this will clear things up for sure winky.gif I'm just anxious and so very excited to see my little peanut. And I guess girl, btw. I have nothing whatsoever but gut feeling to go on. But that's my guess for you!! I think I have just one little bean, myself, and I guess boy for me.


Oxford I am doing well, thanks!! The morning sickness is easing up a bit and I have some motivation to do anything, which has been entirely lacking the past few weeks - just so tired! But I generally feel great. My DD spilled the beans at school, so most of my colleagues and all her classmates know. I plan to share officially with my students after my ultrasound next week. They haven't let on that they know. . . I am watching and waiting to celebrate your BFP!!


Cressy I'd test. Sounds like something is up. . . if negative, I'd check with my provider, as Jjh said smile.gif


Berry I'd test, in your situation too. But full disclosure, I am a bit addicted to POAS so.. take it for what it's worth. I got a BFP at 8 DPO too, a full week before AF was expected. I got my darkest first positives on Wondfos, followed quickly by a FRER.


Good Luck!!

You're probably best off seeing your provider. Sounds like something may be up.

Sparkle and Chuord, sooo good to hear from you ladies <3 Thanks for the sonogram love haha :) When do you have your first sonogram, Sparkle? Chuord, I'm sending you tons and tons of baby dust!!! Fingers sooo tighty crossed for you! xo

04-01-2013 11:20 AM

And angelbaby84: Congrats!

04-01-2013 11:20 AM

angelbaby84: It's due Saturday or Sunday. I have one of those tests that say you can test 4 days before your expected period with 53% accuracy. I'm debating testing tomorrow morning with FMP. I only have one test, though, so if it's neg I'd have to buy another. Also considering going to the Dollarama to get some.

I had the samething around 6-8 DPO and I test @ 8DPO and got my BFP.. I used the first response test(6 day before your period). In the morning when I took it it looked like a evep line, and something was there.. so I took one back in the evening around 7pm and I got double lines.. and the lines was def. there at 8DPO. when is your period due.. ??

oxford Thank you sparkle!! You have made my day :-). Your chart is beautiful, thank you for sharing.

My dip was a massive 0.3 degrees Celsius and dipped below the cover line. I've never had that before, then again I've not had a baby before so let's hope it's a good sign. I did temp 8 times just to check I hadn't made an error!

I'm feeling far more chilled this month. I'm going to sit back and see what happens. Roll the dice...

How are you getting on sparkle?
I hope you are having a smooth pregnancy and sailing through it. Have you told people in TRW yet?
04-01-2013 07:38 AM

Oxford Super promising!! I had a clear temp dip at 4 DPO with the cycle I conceived!! Here's my chart My previous chart was much more jagged in the temps, and I was sick just before AF so I suspect that's why my temps remained elevated. Fx for you!!

04-01-2013 07:36 AM
scjp1109 I started a April TWW thread
04-01-2013 07:21 AM

I guess it's not March anymore, so I will probably be in between here and the April thread when there is one. I'm pretty sure I am 4dpo so far. My CP is still high, and now closed. White CM when I check. I'm going to my PCP doctor today (and I get to tell her I took my own IUD out between now and the last time I saw her, haha). It's way too early for a blood test. I was going to see if she'd give me a progesterone test so I can see if I actually did ovulate. I'm pretty sure I did, I haven't had cramping like that in almost 5 years!


Baby dust to all!

04-01-2013 07:04 AM
oxford Ooooh how exciting scjp! I hope your stay here is short and sweet :-)

My temp has gone back up today, nothing to worry about. Has anyone else ha a dip around 4dpo? The Internet seems full of people who have this every month. Have you ever had that?
04-01-2013 06:25 AM
scjp1109 Well hubby has cave in and is helping me out during ovulation smile.gif I'm suppose to ovulate between the 29-3 and we have dd twice so hoping this month is it cuz I have never really tried to get pregnant it's been easy for me and hubby. So fingers crossed this month smile.gif I'm so excited that he is wanting to try for anothe baby finally smile.gif
04-01-2013 05:24 AM

Angel There isn't a December DDC started yet. You need two moderators to begin one. You can post looking for someone to start one with you in the I'm Pregnant Thread or wait until someone else starts one.


Dahlia Beautiful pics!!


Chourd Fingers SO tightly crossed that April is your month, mama!!


Sending lots of goodvibes.gifto all of you!!

04-01-2013 04:05 AM
