Looks like your temp is on the rise again. That looks good. I would say your symptoms say it all! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
My temp didn't go up at all but it also didn't go down. I don't know if the thermometer made a difference or not? But, still no af and I will likely still test tomorrow if she doesn't show today or tomorrow am. It will still be pretty early at 10 DPO but I have at least 3 or 4 of the cheapie internet tests so it doesn't cost a lot of $$ to see. I am such an POAS addict...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/bag.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Bag">:

1/2 way through the day and no af....Plus, I got my "<a href="http://ellenspencerprints.com/imagelib/sitebuilder/misc/show_image.html?linkedwidth=300&linkpath=http://www.ellenspencerprints.com/sitebuildercontent/sitebuilderpictures/motherandchildearthtones.jpg&target=tlx_new&title=MOTHER%20AND%20CHILD%20(earth%20tones)" target="_blank">mother and child</a>" print by Ellen Spencer today! That has to be a sign!! Man I hope so. I noticed I am very sensitive, emotional, teary eyed today so that could be af on her way or pregnancy related. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/shrug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="shrug">

Well, with this pregnancy, I was so like this during the first 10dpo. It was awful. I never got that way with af.

Keeping my fingers crossed, although DH will flip out if I am (he was done with the 2 we have). He actually said to me earlier today when I started getting a 2nd helping on my plate- "Are you eating for two?" Very timely comment!<br><br>
I'm thinking again about POAS tomorrow- it will be 14 DPO. Probably still too early, but I just want some definitive answer. My breasts are so sore- I just can't understand what would be causing that except being PG!

I definately don't think 14 DPO is too early, but then again I am testing at 10 DPO! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol">

Thanks. I try to not get too excited for obvious reasons. It is really hard not to hope though.

Any news? Mine was a BFN this morning again. I'm starting to wonder if this is just a month of having the worst pms symptoms ever. And when we DTD this morning, my cervix was starting to feel a little tender, which always happens before AF arrives <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

I was talking with a friend yesterday and she said it is her experience that the dollar store tests are not nearly as sensitive. Also, she said that with a bunch of her kids she didn't get a BFP by POAS. She charted and everything, but wouldn't get the BFP until going to the dr. I honestly will be so surprised if you are not pg. I mean, some of the symptoms can be kind of explained away, but how do you explain those temps? Have you ever had temps like that when you weren't pg? You might want to splurge on a more sensitive test. Usually they come with more than one in the box, so that you can "waste" one early and if you get BFN then you can wait to take the other. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Thank you for your encouraging post <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I can't explain the temps- except maybe stress induces higher temps? I have had more stress at work lately. I've only been charting a short time (fairly new to FAM), but never got a temp above 98.6 before. And I have no comparison with my past pregnancies because I was so clueless at the time- both were suprises and I seemed to be oblivious to symptoms until 6 weeks or so! I still have nausea and sore breasts today, so I guess I'll just keep waiting to see if AF shows in a few days....<br>
By the way, do you remember anything about cervical position at the early part of your pregnancy? I know it's not necessarily indicative of pregnancy early on, but I was just wondering....

Well, I am not sure...<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: It looks negative BUT there is the <i>faintest</i> line. I am not sure if I am hallucinating it or not. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I guess I will wait a couple more days and try again. Assuming af doesn't show. My lp is normally around 8-9 days (very short) but I am using progesterone cream this cycle and I don't know if it is longer due to the cream or possible pregnancy? I have used prog. suppositories which are higher dosage in the past and it hasn't stopped af from showing for long. So I am kind of surprised the cream would do it. Anyway, still kind of in limbo...<br><br>
I sometimes wonder if women with shorter lp implant ealier and get BFP earlier than women with longer lp? It would be interesting to find out.<br><br>
And if those are pms symptoms, that would really suck! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

As far as cervical position. From what I understand the cervix goes to it's unfertile state (low/medium, firm) after ovulation and stays that way through early pregnancy. I don't think the cervix really gives you any clues on pregnancy or not. EXCEPT, when you start to form a mucous plug it gets wet/egglike consistency for come mamas...<br><br>
And I hope you get a BFP soon!!

I can't help you there as I have never checked my cervix. I don't think that stress would cause higher temps.

When I got my BFP 10dpo the line was *really* faint, so I would count yours as a positive. Maybe test again tomorrow AM to be sure. With my first I tested much later and as soon as the pee got to the result window there was a positive. This time I had to wait for the result and it was so faint. Sounds like you will have good news soon!!

Thank you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Yours sounds very promising! Please keep us posted because if I just end up with AF I can at least be excited for you!

Ok, thanks. I might post a question about this (cp and early PG) in another thread.<br>
As for the higher temps, I wonder if wishing would cause them to jump up? LOL

I am using the cheapie internet tests but they are "supposed" to be pretty sensitive.
