<p>Hi ladies! There is a thread for early December testers, so I thought I would start one for later December testers. Are there any other ladies that are just now getting into the 2WW and will be testing sometime the week of Christmas?? If so, let's obsess together! <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" height="1" src="http://files.mothering.com//images/smilies/smile.gif" width="1"><span><img alt="smile.gif" height="16" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/smile.gif" width="16"></span></p>

<p>I'll be testing the 20th. This was not a planned bebeh, more like a "eh we weren't careful and oops I just ovulated for the first time since having my baby" which we didn't see coming. I don't have regular cycles and I did acupuncture for my DS. I can't imagine getting pregnant before ppaf by just accident. I told my husband that are chances are low. But wouldn't the reverse be amazing?! My kids would be 20 months apart. My friends are just now having their second babies, their firsts being a few years older than my son and here I go, without any preparation, planning or charting and just poof! make a baby. That would be so cool. I don't want to get my hopes up. But I can't stop obsessing. We DTD 2 days before the temp spike so it is utterly and totally possible, but again, no expectations.</p>

<p>Sigh...........</p>

<p>Hey Bobbys and nurnur!  I'm excited to have someone to obsess with.  I've started a list within the original post to help keep track of testing dates.  What dpo are you guys?  I'm currently 2dpo.  My LP is usually 14 days, which would put my next expected AF on 12/21.  I will try not to test until AF doesn't show, unless I have any signs or symptoms to make me think I might get a BFP.  Good luck, ladies!  I hope we all get our Christmas BFPs!  What a great gift!</p>

<p>I'm 2DPO as well!  Put me down for 12/19 though, because I can't wait that long. LOL  Plus, the 21st is Yule so I don't really want to have to think about testing that day.</p>
<p> </p>
<p> </p>
<p>ETA: Nevermind, duhhh, I'm 3DPO according to FF.  I'm only going by OPKs this cycle though, so who knows how accurate that is.</p>

<p>saoirse2007... Hi again!  Next time we need to meet in the DDC instead of 2WW club!  I hope we both get BFPs for Christmas.  I put your test date as 12/18 - just let me know if that's incorrect.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>TTCMama - Welcome to the group!  I put your test date as 12/25 (that would be 14dpo if you O Saturday).  Just let me know if it needs to be changed.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Good luck, and baby dust to all!  <span><img alt="dust.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/dust.gif" style="width:113px;height:35px;"></span></p>

<br><br><p>I was running a low grade fever last night and was really worn out.  We had a long day so that explains the worn out part, but the fever part is weird for me.</p>

<p>mamabutterfly - Welcome to the group!  I've added you to the list in the original post.  Good luck and lots of baby dust! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>urchin_grey - The fever does sound off, if you aren't feeling sick at all.  Fingers are crossed that it may be a good sign! </p>
<p> </p>
<p>AFM - More weirdness.  I had cramps overnight (and a few this morning), and I woke up to brown-tinted CM.  Oh, and my temp plummeted.  Hmmmm... I'm hoping it's not my pre-AF spotting started super early.  That would suck, since I'm only 5dpo. </p>

<p>I'm not one to think every odd feeling is a pregnancy symptom, only because it's not unusual for me to get headaches, stuffy noses, run-down feelings (I have a horrible diet), but this morning I lost some sensation in my right arm after a hot shower. How weird is that?! The only thing that tipped me off when I was pregnant with DS was sore boobs at 12DPO and a triphasic chart. Other than that, I don't remember anything odd about it. Today, I feel odd. Could be the fact that I am eating fudge covered mint oreos or maybe...........?</p>

<p>this O is after my first ppaf, so I havn't been able to track several cycles to see how long they are tending to be. I have had ewcm the 6-9. trying not to obsess is hard! the 21st would be the earliest I think I would see anything, fingers crossed!</p>

<p>I should be starting (hopefully NOT) on the 21st or so. So I will probably test on either dec 23 or 24, depending on any symptoms.</p>
<p>I'm being very optimistic this cycle. But my inner pessimist is peaking out every once in a while.</p>
<p>Baby dust to everyone!<br>
Hopefully we'll all get a BFP for Christmas!<br>

<p>Yesterday, I felt incredibly achy. In my uterus. That has never happened. I'm starting to freak out. What if I am actually pregnant? We really aren't ready for that second baby quite yet.<span><img alt="redface.gif" src="http://files.mothering.com/images/smilies/redface.gif"> The more I obsess over it, the crazier I feel. I wish I could just know already!</span></p>

<p>Hello, you can add me to the list.  I'll probably test the morning of christmas eve 12/24 :)  I just O'd today I believe... so that would be 12 days DPO.  But who knows... I might give in and test early xD</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Here's my chart: <a href="http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/103b79" target="_blank">http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/103b79</a></p>
