Officially here (just waiting for FF to recognize it!). We've been getting discouraged and I haven't really been "around" because I just feel like my heart is into TTC. Hitting that point of thinking this is pointless and still not sure if we'll go back to the RE. I didn't even re-order opks (had 3 and lucked out with testing) or hpts (none in the house). IDK...maybe when I get further into the TWW I'll perk up some. Until then I'll probably be the creepy lurker...

I've missed you Beth! Happy to see you popping in! Smile

I missed a lot!

Cara, we are cycle buddies. I just noticed. Although, I'm not too happy with my cycle this month. Woo hoo for a temp jump! Any more signs sticking out?

Kim, did you test today? Wink

Beth, (((hugs))) Why does TTC have to be so frustrating?!? It should be so simple yet it's not. :/ I love having you around to chat with too so I'm happy to see you pop back in. Everything crossed for a little Christmas suprise!

Kate/Michelle, ~*~ baby dust~*~!!!!!!

I dumbly looked at this mornings test (hours later) after I woke up feeling nauseous. I could swear I see a tiny shadow. Lmao! Yea right, I'm sure just an evap. Not testing again till Friday if no AF. Maybe Friday will be extra lucky!

We will be testing buddies Marie, I am testing Friday too!

Marie- PICTURE woman!!!

Michelle- Good luck on Friday!

And no, I didn't test today. I am staying at work all this week. We have a "potential" foreign exchange student here this week and I am helping entertain here. I brought NO pregnancy tests with me. NONE. And I promised myself I would not go buy any. There will be wondo's in my mailbox when I get home Friday. And bras. And aloe vera.

My stomach doesn't feel the best this morning. So I have a question for you ladies... last month my chart had highs and low. This month, nothing. Is this good? Bad?

I'm testing Friday too. It's my 31st birthday so I am hoping that is going to bring me good luck.

As for signs, I'm tired, I have had cramps since 5 dpo and my back is so sore. That's it though. I know with both my previous pregnancies I didn't have anything until 5 weeks or so. I'm hopeful....

Kim, my theroy is, if your chart looks completely different from last month, which was a BFN, then it's gotta be good! I *almost* took a pic, but it's been so long afterwards. Maybe I still will. Wink

Yay for Friday!!! One of us has GOT to get lucky with this many testing.

Hey everyone! Hope your Tuesday is going better than mine. Grrrrrr.

Michelle/Kate: I totally understand. I'm only 2 days ahead of you and the TWW is CRAWLING this time!

Beth: I'm sorry, but I also totally know how you feel. I go through phases where I can do this, and then times when I feel... despondent and sad. Just know we all support you.

Kim: I wish I could answer your chart question but mine does different things all the time. I try not to read too much into it, but I know that's really hard!

Marie: Good Luck on Friday!

AFM: I've had two days of just being in a funk. I was hoping I would wake up this morning in a better mood, but no such luck. And I got a speeding ticket last night ($114!) and was only going 33 mph (8 over....as it turns out). I don't know what's up with the bad mood. Too early for PMS--but seriously, I could easily burst into tears right now. I did get my progesterone test blood draw this morning and waiting to hear the results of that. Hopefully they are good. Beyond that.....just waiting another 7 days or so! Oh--for anyone looking at my chart--those white circles make it look weird. I had to start waking up at 4:45 am (to get to the gym before work) instead of my old 5:15 am. So I changed wake up time by a half hour. I don't think it makes that much of a difference, but apparently FF does.

Thanks--so far just grouchy with sore nipples. But that very well may be Clomid and/or Progesterone related.... Who knows?

Beth- I am so sorry that you are feeling this way. TTC can be tough filled with ups and downs. When my ex and I had been trying for over a year, I threw out all my OPKs and HPTs. I tossed my BBT and vitex. I was over it. And then I found renewed hope. Hopefully that 2WW will maybe getting you feeling better. :bigarmhug:

Michelle/Cara/Kim/Marie- You are all testing friday? Maybe I should join you! I don't think I can wait any longer!!!! I am going crazy.

Erin- Maybe it is not PMS!!! Hoping its something brewing inside. I am also with you. I have been very emotional the last couple days.

Marie- So....I am dying to see a pic, but it is hard to get a quality pic sometimes!!! I think I am joining you all on friday testing. Maybe it will bring good luck cause we are all doing it together!!

Nurse just called--Progesterone levels are 27 which she said is great. (Minimally they look for 8--anything below is a problem). Hey--at least my body does one thing right!

I am not testing until Saturday..... *repeat this over and over*

I won't be home until late Friday night, and because of my long cycles, I don't think AF is due until 3/30 which is what.... like 15 or 16 dpo?

Erin- Good for you!! Glad your levels look so darn good.

Kim- Your strong. I dont know if I can hold out till then. I know I should!

AFM- 6DPO. I'm super cranky/emotional and exhausted. And just all around feel crummy. My allergies are also horrible. Either I'm pregnant or PMSing. Until then, I will be staring at my FRERs everytime I need to get into the bathroom cabinet. ughh.

Erin- so happy for your great number!!!

Kate- AHHHHHHHHHH I am so emotional too. I cried both Friday and today at work. I hate when I cry.

I am so trying to hold out. The next two days will be hardest. So.... my friend that had twins in November has a missing period. She is giving it a few days before testing. I swear if she is preggo, I will cry. Literally cry.

Charting makes me a little anxious. I think I hit my top temp at 7dpo last time and then was downhill from there. I dread the same thing happening this month Sad I mean I know I have NO control over it, but I wish i wasn't so anxious. Topping it off is that I am spending tonight and tomorrow with the friend with twins ... I can't wait for Saturday to get here so I can test.

~*~ baby dust ~*~ on everyone!!!

Soooooo, my temp dropped, like usual, AND when I checked my cervix this AM it's open and a drop of blood. SadSad I'm sure, like clockwork, AF will be here tomorrow. D@mn you body! I'll have to if I have another shot at Dec.

I know what you mean. I'm obsessing over my temps. For some reason, I was feeling super optimistic yesterday and today I'm worried about my chart. haha.

Your chart looks good. There are ups and down... I can't find any charts that look like mine. And I just dread taking it tomorrow am because if it drops, I know I will start feeling down and there is no reason for that.

You are so right...you start feeling down and there is no reason for that. I told Marie a couple days ago to look at BFP charts and they are all soooo different. One of my first DPO temps was way high and I knew it had to come down or I would have a fever soon. Even still, I was bummed. Charting is good and bad.

This totally! Good AND bad. I like that I can find out this cycle isn't looking good and I'm not POAS every 3 hours round the clock thinking, 'these HPTs have GOT to be broken!' heh heh. But, you can loose hope the second your temp starts to drop, even if you shouldn't. *sigh* What's a gal to do?

No more blood draws for me, this cycle anyway! They were just testing at CD 21 to make sure ovulation was strong. For that, it has to be over 3, so I was pretty thrilled with 27. Smile Sorry about the temp drop this morning. I know how frustrating that can be!

I don't post here nearly enough but I had to get in the conversation on temping. Temping stresses me out so bad after ovulation that once ovulation in confirmed I just stop doing it. I know I will be heartbroken if/when AF arrives so I figure there is no point in stressing every day over something that might be telling me nothing. But I do understand the addiction that it is too Smile

Oh Kate and Marie, I am right there with you. I didn't sleep again last night. So my temp dropped a lot this morning. I discarded it but I'm freaking out thinking that theres no hope. But I just want this so bad right now.

Officially 3dpo. Still in that mental place of thinking this is pointless though. I go back and forth between thinking about making an appt. with our RE to start treatment again or just counting my blessings and giving up on TTC. Can't give up stalking everyone on here though. I hope to see some more graduates soon!

Beth - :bighug: Don't give up hun, it will happen for you, I know it!

Ok, back to 'waiting to O' with me. Pinkish spotting and temp is waaaay down. D@mn.

Marie - Sorry about the temp and the spotting Sad I'm going to continue to keep my fingers crossed for you though!

Kate - Well I have been feeling exceptionally fatigued, crampy, achey sore bbs, and I have been STARVING. When I eat food it tastes like I haven't ate in years! Meaning it tastes SOOO good! Been nauseated too, mainly when I think of certain foods. But, unfortunately I am thinking it is all signs of AF. Been having dull cramps tonight and with me being only 8dpo I'm worried I am gonna have a short LP this month as I usually run 12 dpo. But we will see when the witch shows.
