UPDATE: Tuesday AM....well back on the crazy train I guess. Here are some pics....The first of my FRER yesterday mid morning and today with FMU. This mornings is lighter for sure.<br><br><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/4659416011/" target="_blank">http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/4659416011/</a><br><br>
i had a small stash so being freaked by the lighter FRER, i took these...<br><br><a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/4660039384/in/photostream/" target="_blank">http://www.flickr.com/photos/5071339...n/photostream/</a><br><br>
i guess we'll see how this all plays out. i thought/hoped they would be darker considering i am mostly likely 5-6 days late if we go on my positive OPKs back on day 15 16.<br><br>
blessings!<br><br><br><br>
hello wise ones,<br>
my body is playing tricks on me this month. i am either preggo or not so take your wager on what is going on w. me....!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
just got my AF back when my little dude was around 20mo..so about 5 months ago. i have not been charting or trying but using OPKs (cheapy sticks from walgreens) to get an idea of when i am o'ing. the one things i noticed clearly was that from my very first positive OPK (they were pos for 2-3 days w the cheapies)...I would get AF exactly 2 weeks later. Like clockwork for 5 months. So we decided to wing it this month.<br><br>
Positive OPK (cheapies) on all of day 15 and 16. negative (expensive stick kind) from day 16 (late PM) through the next 4 or 5 days. DTD days 15 16 17.<br>
lots of cramping day 23-24....definitely thinking preggo...but..<br><br>
...impatient me...took a answer the morning of day 26 (8-9-10 DPO who knows?) BFN <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/angry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="angry"><br><br>
but of course, expecting my period on day 29 as in last couple months....here we are, about to roll into day 33. No sign of AF. Preggo or wacky body? I have no symptoms but I never do when early pregnant. this would be our 3rd<br><br>
I just need a test but thought i would throw this out there for opinions <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
much love

yes, no other tests....<br><br>
when i was trying to get pregnant w. my first child, i took some many tests and saw wayyyy too many BFN...(it took us 9mo + to get preg w her). so i branched out last week by testing early...<br><br>
who knows??

Thought I would bump this and post an update..<br><br>
crazy times over here. So this past friday, i was on day 33. no sign of af. now i'm thinking she's anywhere from 2-4 days late based on my positive OPKs which were on day 15 and 16 with walgreen cheapies. i have been using them for a couple months....<br><br>
so FMU that morning... BFN... (i used a frer)<br><br>
i was really thinking i was knocked up and so resigned myself to getting AF over this holiday weekend....<br><br>
i planned to see my Naturopath doc this week if AF didn't come. I'm googling all the possible reasons for a missed period (brain tumor, ectopic, cyst, etc). Surprisingly, I had JUST had my yearly bloodworkup with her/thyroid check....all was great...<br><br>
so.....well here we are monday....for the past week, i have had minor af twinges, etc in my lower uterus, lots of creamy cm... i'm like..."get it over with already"! its 11am here i just ran inside from playing outside w. the kiddies and i'm like...."i can't hold out waiting any longer!!!!...(i was going to give it another week to test again...)<br><br>
holy moly...second morning urine....BFP<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br>
i'm almost a week late, its a light BFP but it is there....<br><br>
do you think i have any reason to freak out i didn't get it until late? or that it's faint with SMU being anywhere from 5-7 days past when AF was due???<br><br>
the FMU i used from last Friday, whether this matters or not, had sat out a couple hours in a lunch size tupperware w. a lid. in a drawer of my bathroom....its been warm around here as well. maybe that doesn't matter?<br><br>
i need to be more zen about this, but it sure has been a rollercoaster <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
love to you all<br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

because you werent charting, its likely you Oed a lot later than normal. The only way to be sure is to get an early ultrasound, but I feel like if you go by your LMP you are going to end up being induced for going overdue with a baby who is not due yet.

no, nada on dtd since day 17...<br><br>
also, i had obvious low cramping/twinging on day 23 24....and i have had that same implantation feeling w other babes and m/c's....<br><br>
i guess i'm just going to have faith everything will turn out as it is meant to be. and i hope dearly that its a baby and not heartbreak <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

I do know someone that got pregnant from DTD 8 days before O... so let's say you geared up to O around the 16th/17th, and then didn't but then Oed around the 23 /24 when you had that cramping - it's within the realm of possibility to get pregnant (though not very common!) from DTD 5-7 days before you Oed. That would put you at 12dpo when you got the positive... I think that is probably the most likely happenstance here.

and that would mean theres NO worries over lines showing up late or anything.<br><br>
I do highly suggest the early ultrasound to confirm though because if you go with what you think is O day but it didnt happen until a week later... your due date will be a whole week off and that can cause problems later on<br><br>
at 13 weeks, no heartbeat on doppler could be simply due to being 1 week off on your dates, at 24 weeks if something goes wrong, 1 week can make a difference between them delivering or not, at 36 weeks if you go into labor, 1 week makes a difference between trying to stop the labor and just letting baby come. at 42 weeks, 1 week makes a difference between forcing you to be induced and saying... oh its still a bit early...

thanks for your thoughts ladies!<br>
yes, looks like an early ultrasound is in the cards. especially w. my m.c history, if i expect to (mentally) survive the next 10 weeks or so <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
so i guess it will either turn out to be:<br>
1. funky test due to the stored urine<br>
2. later O than thought<br><br>
it's a nice positive for mid-day not a squinter... i'll try to post a pic. which reminds of me of something funny. when i took that frer on friday, i was standing over it watching. so you see the pink start to run from Left to Right. well i was sure that as it passed the pregnant line it started to form a line. i remember clearly seeing that!!! STRANGE<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked"> i got wicked excited and ran out of the bathroom as one of the kiddos was hollering or something crazy<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> ...but when i went back it it was pretty darn negative. makes me wonder......
