ok... so I think these look promising :)

My opk's started to get dark again, so I thought I'd test cause I'm an addict

I think these look pretty promising, I'll test again though and see if there is any sort of progression.

I took three Answer Early Result and this is what came up...

I think I see something but 6 dpo is insanely early. Hopefully they get darker.

Yes, I totally agree that it's insanely early but I do tend to get bfp's very early - I apparently don't have any issues getting pregnant, it's just keeping the bun in the oven that seems to be the problem.

The lines came up fast too -- as the pee was traveling along the magic baby stick and it stayed there Smile

Funny, I am not really having "symptoms" this cycle. I had nausea twice in the last three days (nothing I wouldn't normally chalk up to a bad meal) and the only other thing of significance is the appearance of the veins in my boobs... otherwise, I feel fairly good and I did not suspect anything yet - just saw a kinda pos opk after I'd gotten straight blank negatives for days and thought hmmmm

Yes, I know I am weird because I use opk's even after O - and yes, I do it twice a day even after cause I am obsessive, they are so cheap compared to hpts and it satisfies my insanity.

Oh, and ladies, so sorry about the original size of that pic, I shrunk it! So I won't put bfp on my chart till I see a digital "pregnant" this time Smile

LOL I'm obsessing today for sure. I just had some dark, and I mean dark, brown show on my TP.

This is my chart, look at my totally insane temps. Sometimes I feel like I'd have better luck asking the 8ball! Oh, and ignore the profile, it's ancient!

IB? brown is ok, it's old blood. Are you going to get betas done?

No, I don't do beta's only because I have no control over what the numbers do - usually they do a beta when I go in for the 1st appt (usually at 12 weeks) - unless I make it to 12 weeks I don't even bother going to the OB. Otherwise, it's something else I have to stress over -- not to mention pay for !

Obviously if I am in pain or have any "weird" symptoms I'd go in, but they can't do much about an early loss or CP and I don't allow any paps or pelvic exams until after my safe point. My well checks have all been good and normal and there is no sign of infertility on either side. Midwife just says it will happen when it's "supposed" to lol Of course, she's right, but it's still annoying and frustrating.

Curious- What factor caused the open circle for today's temp?

I think it's cause the temp jump, the charting tool sees it as a possible inaccuracy, but that was my BBT - I normally don't adjust just so that the chart reads it the way it wants, I have weird temps, I know it, that is why I hate temping, it's never predictable for me.

Hmmm, even more curious. Usually I've only seen them with time differences but hmmm. Must be frustrating! I looked at some of your other charts and I see what you mean about your temps.

I hope everything becomes clearer in the coming days.

I took my temps at 5:30am this morning, at 5am the day before, and throughout the begining of my cycle it was consistently around 4:30am - so maybe that is the trigger, who knows. I thought it was the crazy temp jump.

Oh, ok, it was time them. Usually you'll get that if it's more than 30 minutes before or after when you normally temp. That's still pretty high, though!

I hope the tests stay positive and keep getting darker! I dont know anything about charting..never done it, but I hope it clears up a bit in the next few days for you!

FWIW...I definitely saw a line on those tests you posted!

I totally see the lines! Congrats!! Sending sticky vibes your way. I got a super faint line 7DPO, and it got continually darker. Some tests showed it better than others, but by 13DPO the test line was WAY darker than the control line. Hoping the same for you!

That is unbelievable!! I don't understand how that is. It makes no sense to me at all!
FF has never seen my temp rise as inaccurate unless I temp at a wierd time, and I have been using FF for years! that is strange!

Do you have one or 2 children, because on your chart, it shows only one???

LOL I have 2 daughters. The profile is old and I never updated it. I used to chart only on paper and transfer some of the info later to FF ---

If you look at the two cycles in August of 2006 -- I was bleeding on and off from a loss, the second Aug chart shows my actual pregnancy with #2, but it is not an accurate chart by any means because I was on my period again at the end and if I tried to put that in, it would start a new chart because it was after supposed ovulation... so basically, I was charting on paper, and then putting enough stuff into FF for it to interpret EDD and so on -- I also liked seeing the bd' timing meter -- you know with all those xxx it always says HIGH and that made me feel encouraged -- you can tell from all the xxxx's on those charts, were were really just trying and trying lol

At this point though I've been keeping track mostly online because mom lives with us and she is nosy. She will know the difference in my charts (normally chart to avoid) but if she see's xx around O lol that would be bad! She doesn't use computers so my info is safe that way.

I have to fix the profile, sorry for the confusion, I tried to warn on the first post about the ancient stuff -- I guess I should update it lol!

The temps have always been awful, I can only really tell O accurately from CM -

I'm just hoping the lines start to get darker. I took another Answer Early this morning to get the same stupid faint line. On the other hand, the spotting from yesterday seems to be totally gone today and that is good. My temp dipped down to hell though so I am hoping it will go back up tomorrow. I have one test left and if I can stop my obsessive POAS syndrome I would like to wait till 11DPO to retest just so I stop freaking over the stupid lines.

Okay, I have to run - covering for my bro at his store again today - but I'll be back later xoxo

I feel about the same as you at this point--lately it hasn't been getting pg that is the problem, it is staying pg. And if I go in for beta's--it could still all change anyway. Even an early u/s for me could show up as fine right now, but something change later--thats what happened last time. I had great beta numbers in Nov, a u/s with a h/b at 6w5 days in december, horrendous nausea all the way until 11 weeks, then it began to taper off and at my appt at 12 weeks, h/b couldn't be found, so an u/s was done and it showed baby stopped growing at 8 weeks--2 weeks after my "good" u/s. So I didn't even schedule my first appt until 10 weeks this time--I'm going on prayers until that point and trying not to get too attached.

But I see your lines and I wish you a very sticky bean!!

Holly, sorry to hear you're having this issue too :bighug:

I am considering stopping temp all together again and just using OPK, CM, and CP to calculate O date and working from there. I think maybe all the constant stress is to blame for the non-sticky business. It's really the only difference between now and BEFORE. Midwife still insists it's normal and that I only notice cause I test early. She also said that some women do produce some HCG - although I always thought that was total rare -- then again, rare only means it's not impossible.

At least I am glad I haven't been sharing my BFP's with anyone other than DH and you guy's - I hate having to "notify" friends or family, and it's comforting to know I"m not the only one that has this problem.

I'm in a crappy mood again today. I have been literally exhausted the past two days and last night I laid on the bed for what was supposed to be a few minutes and literally passed out in an instant and slept right through. I don't even remember DH getting into bed - or moving me -- at all!

I am definitely going to wait to re-test. I just don't think I can take seeing a BFN or another faint line.... ugh

Okay, I'll stop babbling and go stalk some more threads.
