Thought I would start us out for October...<br><br>
(From the September thread...)<br><br>
Ahhhh you guys are great! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">You are making me <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> because you are so great (cry in a good way) I have never had this much support and well wishes for anything! I sure hope I don't let you down.<br><br>
As far as the POAS, yikes you are pushy :LOL I may be late for my standards but I am only 13 DPO still... I am waiting to test until Friday so you will all have to wait until then.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> (Plus, I peed on a cheapy stick yesterday and got a BF (false) N! Temp is still up today. Little higher than yesterday and still no signs of af! (my longest lp before this was 11 days and that was with prog.!)<br><br>
Heaveasoul! What a great Thanksgiving gift that would be! Good luck!<br><br>
Good luck to everyone testing soon!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><br><br><br>

I am 5 dpo with a test day of October 10th. Feeling very normal, had cramping yesterday, but I am trying to be low key and not obsess this month <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> , is that possible?<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> Anyone else testing that day?<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/sticky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="sticky"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/belly.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="belly"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/baby.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="baby"> to all!<br><br>

I am copying my post from the September thread too...just in case everyone is checking here instead. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Aww Cheryl..do you feel the love!!!! I am so praying for you!! 13dpo is awesome!!! I wouldn't put much faith in those internet cheapy tests....<br><br>
Okay, it is with some hesitation and trepidation that I post this......My last cycle was 27 days, 11 day lp. Well..........<br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br><br>
This month, I am 13dpo, cd28....and my tests have ben getting darker! Yes, I am ready to say I have my BFP <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/pos.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="positive"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/belly.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="belly"> !!!!<br><br>
OMG!!! I can't believe I said it (typed it) out loud!!!! I usually do not tell anyone until around 10-12 weeks, but you all have been so supportive and wonderful! I was going to wait for Cheryl to post, because I didn't want to over shadow the joy we will all feel for you! But since you are waiting until Friday, I figured this was a good time to post.<br><br>
Btw, Cheryl, I started testing at 10dpo, using both a FRER and an internet cheapy strip (shut-up! I am not obsessed!). The FRER showed up the first day in about 3 minutes with the faintest shadow of a line., The internet one took about 30 minutes to show anything. Even today, the FRER showed up (not as dark as the control line yet) within 3 minutes, but the internet one took about 30 minutes to even come close. I would totally disregard the internet tests. My chart <a href="http://circles2.fertilityfriend.com/home/2f07a" target="_blank">http://circles2.fertilityfriend.com/home/2f07a</a> if you're interested<br><br>
Alright, I guess I am off to the June board with Robin and Liz..oh and I think Jaqueline is hanging out there too. Ah yes, here is a liberal sprinkling of<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"> to all of you!!!!

This is so wonderful.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
~Cheryl I'm not all that strong. I've had a chemical pregnancy before where I saw a faint positive at 16dpo and got AF at 18dpo.<br>
So now I like to wait till I have 18 days of high temps before I test. DH would prefer that I wait till I go 2 months with no AF, don't think that will be happening.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br>

congratulations!!!!!!!!<br><br>
and i'm so excited to hear about the other waiters too!!<br><br><br><br>
as for me, i'm pretty sure i'm completely insane, but i'm glad i'm not alone in my obsessing!<br><br>
i'm thinking of taking a test knowing it will be negative (i think i ovulated saturday) just to see if it reduces my obsessing for a few days... does it work like that????<br><br><br><br>
my appetite is all funky and i swear i had a slight hint of nausea today, but i'm quite sure it could just as easily be psychosomatic or the cold that is going around this office.<br><br><br>
and i have a pimple.<br>
one of those that you can't see but it kind of hurts.

This is my first cycle trying for baby#2 - DS was conceived on cycle #3 of trying for him (which was also my third cycle of BCP - and this time our first cycle trying is the third off BCP's). I'm 9 dpo today and I'm feeling sort of hopeful but not really - if that makes any sense. I really want to be pg this month cause I'd rather have a June baby than a July or August baby. One of my friends IRL said - well just stop trying for a couple of months if you're not pg this month - apparently she doesn't understand that when you want to get pg - you want it to happen now and who cares what the consequences are (ie. being heavily pg in the summer - lol!!).<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="dust"> to everyone!!

Help! I started having some light spotting this afternoon. (Just when I check my cervix) Tell me this is okay<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">: <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"><br><br>
Flitters, early testing doesn't help with the obsessing. Especially when you get a BFN from, maybe?, testing to early. Trust me I know. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">:<br><br>

Cheryl, repeat after me: "I will stop checking my cervix." For some people, esp. in early pregnancy, this can be very aggrivating to a cervix, and cause some bleeding. Used to happen to me when I was first pregnant with dd after pelvics, because my doctor would touch my cervix.<br>
It can be very normal though even if you aren't pregnant. If you aren't bleeding so much that you spot onto your panties or clothes, or you only bleed from touching your cervix, I wouldn't take it as a bad sign. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> Good luck.<br><br>
My chart had a nice dip at 5DPO yesterday, then back up today. I am feeling very positive. <a href="http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/246EC" target="_blank">Check out my chart.</a><br><br>
And Welcome to the new Waiters out there!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

Cheryl~I'm sending you all kinds of baby vibes!<br><br>
As for me, I'm 10dpo, and experiencing a myriad of *symptoms* <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/rolleyes.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="rolleyes">: But I'm doing okay with obsessing mostly because (1) I'm working too many hours and (2)I don't know if the things I'm feeling that are different are just due to the hormones I'm on<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/confused.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Confused">: I did poa FRER tonite, with early evening urine, and got a BFN. Not even a shadow of a line. I get a dr test on sunday, results monday. I'll probably take 1-2 more tests between now and then though. Cha, I'm not obsessing at all. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
Good luck on Monday LM2K!<br><br>
