Can I be changed to 2013 Graduates? BFP this morning at 9dpo :)

07-28-2013 03:24 AM
clarwyn please change me to waiting to O!! I still have one more AF before we're officially "on", but it's due in a couple days so we decided to go ahead and stop preventing. so exciting!!
07-16-2013 09:42 AM
Sunshinemama8 Update: I'm on CD5 now (AF is still blessing me with her evil presence), so I am now in the Waiting to O category.

Congrats, Seattlemama!!

Jayray I'm still here!  And I *think* I might have had implantation cramping this morning!  I'm on CD22 and was having weird menstrual-like cramps, but only on one side.  I will be so freaking excited if this is for real!! 


I am still dealing with the stupid yeast.  The rx cream didn't work (and gave me weird cramps!), so the doctor prescribed a dose of diflucan, but wants me to wait to take it until AF.  I bought some expensive probiotics and started taking them and started feeling better.  I also decided to just go ahead and try another round of monistat while I'm waiting.  If I could get rid of this stupid yeast AND be pregnant, it might be the best July ever.

07-15-2013 10:45 AM

Oh hun.. So glad for you.. congrats.. how are you...

07-08-2013 06:00 AM

I'm out for July as well. AF showed up yesterday and I took two early pregnancy tests a few days prior just to confirm. We are officially NOT pregnant greensad.gif. I'm sure my husband is probably going to start to wonder if something is up with him or me but maybe its just taking some time. I've only been off BC since April so who knows.


Congrats to those are getting BFP!!!joy.gif

07-07-2013 09:02 PM
clarwyn congrats Cressy and seattlemama!! I have one more month waiting to try. I'm traveling a lot in August tho so hopefully we find time!
07-03-2013 02:29 AM

Thanks, zbugmama. Sending baby dust to all those who are continuing on their journey. Hope you all get BFP's soon.


My pregnancy was confirmed at the doctors. Hope this little bean sticks.  8 dpo is the earliest I have ever had a BFP.

07-02-2013 06:18 PM

Congrats, seattlemama!  Looks like you may be the last BFP of the month.


AF arrived on the eve of the day I'd planned to test.  I'm trying to look on the bright side - at least I still have 2 tests, though that may just make the next TWW harder.  


sigh ...


Bring on July!

delightedbutterfly Had some cramping which I was taking as a positive sign, however after a potty break it seems I won't be testing tomorrow. I am having some spotting which I'm assuming is my "new usual" period. I think the progesterone is messing up my body worse than when I wasn't on it.

I've been bleeding every 18-20 days lately. And I'm supposed to take the progesterone from day 10-21. So I'm not even able to take the whole course.

I think I need to go back and see my doc again. I'm only 9DPO today and now CD1... My temps don't show regular ovulation and when I do my LP doesn't seem long enough.

Fingers crossed the doing the July thread keeping is a positive thing!

Oh and I keep forgetting! Those who are waiting for a March DDC... Two of you need to choose to be co-leaders and then PM Cynthia so she can put it up for you smile.gif

And only now do I realize tomorrow is the first... D'oh and it's Canada day here tomorrow so it should not have taken me so long!

I will definitely take it over then and start July's tomorrow smile.gif

Fingers crossed for everyone testing this week.


I'm just hanging out on cycle day 2, hoping the next 11 days pass by quickly and that nothing gets in the way of us trying this month as ovulation time will be tricky busy this time. So might have to bd a bit earlier than we would like to.

Congrats Seattlemamma! That doesn't look very faint to me!!!! I can see it just fine! No squinting/tilting or otherwise! So awesome! Hoping I'll get one too tomorrow!

AFM: temp was still up today smile.gif tired & sore bbs but that is most likely head cold and progesterone. I'm not feeling very good about this being the cycle greensad.gif but I'm still hopeful!

Hey all! wave.gif


I know I'm jumping in right at the end of June so if you want to just add me to the July thread under WTF is going on that's ok too smile.gif


I was a member of this thread and got my BFP in June 2011. None of the names here seem familiar so I hope that means that the members then all got their long awaited BFPs too! DD was born March 2012.. She's 15 months now and DH and I are ready to get back on the TTC wagon. Our first BFP took 2 years, a diagnosis of PCOS and Clomid to happen, so we decided not to prevent after DD was born. I had my 1st PPAF in December and was SHOCKED to find myself pregnant in January. A week after BFP I started bleeding and had an early miscarriage. We were devastated of course but are looking at the silver lining and hoping that we will be able to get PG quickly and naturally this time around! Since January I've avoided keeping much track of AF cause I just felt sad about it...thus my WTF is going on status. I'm sure AF will show up sometime in the next few weeks and I can start tracking things again.


I love MDC and particularly the One Thread. DH loves that I have others to obsess with over my cervical mucus etc other than him too lol.


Baby dust to all of you dust.gif and congrats to the BFPs I saw while reading through!! joy.gif

Cycle day 28, which is late for me, and about 2 hours ago had some brown spotting, which seems to have stopped.  Hoping, hoping, hoping that AF doesn't decide to show the night before I was going to test.  Tho' I suppose that's better than a bfn.


Waiting and trying to hold off any excitement or early disappointment.  


Sooo hard!

06-29-2013 01:32 PM
Debbie perez A week late and bfn. Will retest again thursday but i know im pregnant i have 4 more kids so i know my body.
06-29-2013 10:11 AM

marcyse I hope you have a positive outcome! For me it was an extra day LP length for some unknown reason, I'll have to google that later. AF arrived today and my temp dropped as normal, just a day late. I wonder why it didn't work this cycle...timing seemed perfect and no health concerns, been checked out so I don't know what went wrong in there confused.gif I'll be thinking that every time it doesn't happen, anyone else wonder why? so frustrating!


TeaJunkie and Ocmom I'm one day behind you guys! Nice to have cycle buddies. And so begins another 2 week wait but this time for Ovulation... feels like I am always wishing time to pass for ttc purposes!

06-29-2013 09:51 AM

Congrats, Cressy!


Winter - I am having a really similar experience to you!

I'm at 14 DPO, which is my usual luteal length, and by now in my cycle every month my temp has either dropped really drastically or spiked and then dropped. Right now I am just sitting firm at a nice high temp, which is getting me excited, but I did FRER yesterday and today in the morning and both BFN. I am so confused!!!


Trying next month will be difficult because we will be traveling and not really have any privacy. I would love for this to finally be the month!

06-29-2013 08:10 AM
delightedbutterfly Gah! Two wildly different temps this morning...

First one was on the cover line so a 1/10 down from yesterday. But it was at 4:20am and I didn't getting sleep until well after 1am. Plus DH came to bed after that and woke me and left sometime between then and 4 because it was too hot upstairs and it woke me again.

Second was at 8am and way up! But I had slept well from 420-8.

Regular temp time is usually 630-7 but I vary from 4-8 depending on day, I don't sleep well and half my temps are usually at normal time and half of them are usually off time.

I also have a horrible head cold and super sore throat the really grabbed ahold off yesterday... Which could account for the higher temp too... 8DPO today... No cheapie dollar store tests on hand as they've been sold out for a couple weeks now.

Most likely still going to test Monday if temp is still above cover line. If I had a cheap test on hand I would have tested today. But instead of a $1.25 test I only have a $7 test (next cheapest test in this town and it's pink line) so I'm holding off smile.gif the money isn't really the issues it's more that I feel I'd be wasting a test today as much as I WANT to test wink1.gif
06-29-2013 04:13 AM
Sunshinemama8 Another positive OPK for me today (clearblue says I can use fmu, and I got a pos in the afternoon yesterday, too). Also, more light bleeding, and cramps, and cervix is still super high. Hoping that means I am Oing this cycle,
06-28-2013 08:56 PM

Fingers crossed for everyone in the 2ww!  And thanks, everyone, for wishing my dream to come true.  love.gif


delightedbutterfly, I totally get not wanting a Summer baby.  When we moved to Arizona, I told DH that I refuse to have my 3rd trimester in the Summer.  That makes planning tight for us since I also said no more holiday season babies!

06-28-2013 05:31 PM
delightedbutterfly Seattlemamma - I am 7DPO. It dipped yesterday and was the same temp today. I am really hopin it goes back up tomorrow! The last couple days I temped a bit earlier than normal. I find I either wake up around 430 and temp or I don't wake until my alarm and temp 630/7ish. The last couple mornings were somewhere between that.

I had a total emotional break down today. One of those hormonal over nothing ones. And a head cold has firmly planted itself in my body. I'm also a bit crampy but that could always be something I ate considering I've eaten one meal out each of the last 3 days and there's always a bit of cross contamination eating out for me.

Oh and DH says that it sounds like work won't interfere until August smile.gif Although we are going on a family vacay at the end of July/beginning of Aug and it looks like I'll either be smack in the middle of morning sickness, or smack in the middle of a TWW with AF due to show up while we're gone. I'm hoping for the former wink1.gif

Oh an I'm exhausted and laying down right now but that could be the head cold or the family golf game in the sun and heat doing it to me!

Thanks for your reply seattlemamma! Does it sound like I finally am ovulating now that I have a positive OPK? I'm really kicking myself for not temping, but my kiddos broke my thermometer, and I'm still waiting for my new one to come in the mail. This is the longest and the heaviest this light bleed/spotting has gone on for so far, but we also had a rough bd earlier, so I think my cervix might be a tad irritated.

Edit: I am still bfing, as well, but not often these days.

Congrats, cressyhoke!!!


Still waiting to know on cycle day 27, but went and bought tests today.  27 days would be long for me but I'm trying to wait until Sunday.  Now that I'm on summer break, it's hard to be busy enough to stay distracted.


Waiting, waiting, waiting ...
