Thanks for the reply, holy crap GOLFBALLS, I am terrified.  
I was hoping this would just be like a heavy period.

Hi all, this is my 3rd pregnancy and I'm about 8 weeks and started bleeding last night, at first just brownish spoting but now it's bright red like a period.  Am I out?  I've never had a miscarriage...

I wasn't so good about temping this month, but my period came a day later than I was expecting and had fairly big chunks of tissue -- but probably I'm just happening to notice them, right?  The...

Aw, hi Annie!   I hardly ever see anyone from the old CTA board -- everyone's having babies instead.  I guess it's cyclical -- I'm hoping to hop back in the gene pool next year ;)

Thanks for the responses -- I finally caved and did a $store test (hey, it was going to expire in January anyway) and it came back BFN at 12 dpo.  Can I sort of rest on that? Or is 12 dpo too early...

I've been charting for over 2 years now, with no problems (TTA, obvi) but we've also been SUPER strict (only DTD after confirmed O).  We took advantage of the first 5 days rule for the first time...

My DS will be 3 in October -- so we're just about there!  We temp every day and abstain until we're sure of O, and it's worked BEAUTIFULLY.  NFP totally works if you work it! But cheat in even one...

Isn't it funny that so many women think "right after my period" is the safest time?  After my dear oops DS we decided only AFTER O was safe, and no troubles since (knock on wood) ;)

Hey y'all -- CD 2 here. Based on my normal LP I think I actually O'd around CD 15/16.  This was the same time I switched wake-up times to two hours earlier, which I think sort of masked my temp...

It's possible, but pretty unlikely -- I think the pre-ejaculate has very little viable sperm in it -- which is why a lot of ladies here have had great results from careful withdrawl.  Also, you...

I guess you could have gotten an early BFP with FMU, then had more diluted stuff later in the day -- but I'm surprised you'd get false BFNs 15 DPO -- it seems like FMU wouldn't be necessary at that...
