Lets hope it goes fast for all of us! When is everyone testing?

ETA I know it's really early for most January hopefuls, but for those of us who'd have EDDs early in the month, it'll be right around the corner. Biggrin

Hi Ladies, I posted on the "waiting to O" thread b/c I'm currently on CD 14, so not sure if I'm waiting, or it has already happened!

I will def test before April 23, b/c I have a obgyn appointment (for my annual) I think my EDD would be Jan 3!! DH & I always host New Years Eve party at our house, hopefully we won't be able to host this year!!! Wink

Good Luck Ladies!!!!

That is too funny about the EDDs as mine would be 1/3 based on LMP too :D. I don't know if I can hold out until the 23rd though. FF thinks AF will show on the 21st which seems right as my LP is usually about 14 days and I O'd early. If we did conceive this cycle, FF puts my EDD at Dec. 28th. I'm going to try to wait until Monday to test (10 DPO) but we'll see.

Michelle - Oh yay testing buddies!! How many DPO will you be then? I'll only be about 10-11, but b/c of DR appt, I'd like to at least know that I could be pregnant. Fingers crossed!!!!!!!!!! Smile

I guess I'm here. On Sunday (Easter), I had 2 embryos transferred during our 2 fresh IVF attempt. My beta is scheduled for Mon 4/23. Pretty sure I'm might test before that though. Probably that Fri or Sat. Good luck to everyone!

It is really cool that so many of us would have EDD around the same time! Sometimes I think it would be nice to have a 2012 baby (esp for tax purposes!) but not sure I'd want to spend NYE in hospital, so might be nice to have 1 last NYE hoorah (obviously w/o drinking!!) w/o baby..... heck, I don't think I'll complain as long as I have a baby!!!!!!!!!!!

Baby Dust to all!!!

Hey ladies....I typically O later in my cycle, but Fertility Friend puts my due date at 12.30 if I did in fact conceive. I'll probably wait until AF is due since we didn't get to BD as much as I'd hoped. AF should be here next Wednesday, so we'll see. I'm not feeling too optimistic, but if we did not conceive, I'll get a second chance at January Smile

Thanks! I *think* I had some implantation spotting this morning and last night. Didn't have it with our other 2 cycles (both BFN) so maybe? I'm 7dp3dt today. We'll see. Good luck to everyone!

Ooh, sounds promising. When do you test? Technically you are "10 dpo" so you could get a positive now. Did you do a trigger shot? If so, are you testing to see it fade out?

When will you test? Prior to beta? When is your beta? Yes, I'm a little excited... Smile

My beta is 4/23. I'm almost sure that I will POAS before then, possibly next weekend. But now I'm a little excited since I got a pos "sign" if you will. But the thought of seeing that stark white stick is too strong right now. I did trigger w/ HCG but haven't been testing it out. There are no tests at home and with my luck up to this point I'm being pretty stubborn about paying any more $ to have my hopes dashed. I wish there was a "POAS fairy" ROFL

So my OPK this morning & afternoon were lighter than the past few days, so I guess I've already OV (this was my first month with OPK, so I don't know how it all works!) DH & I DTD every day so fingers crossed with got that egg!!! and now I'm in the dreaded TWW......... I have obgyn appt on 4/23, so I'm wondering if she could do a blood test even if I don't get a BFP - I'll only be 11 DPO by then.

PS - Michelle, I LOVE the ladybugs on your ticker, or (tickler, whatever their called!!)

I hope you caught that egg! At 11 DPO it's possible to get a positive blood test if you implanted 2-3 days before from my understanding. Can't hurt to ask! :goodluck:

Oh Mrs. F - how exciting would that be if you got a BFP on your wedding day!!! What a wedding present that would be!!! Fingers crossed for you!!

I'm only 2-3 DPO, but I've been having cramping - but I had that last cylce around this time - so I really can't "read into" every freakin thing that happens!! This is why the TWW is so hard b/c I obsess over EVERYTHING!! haha anyone else out there like that??

So where is everyone at within the TWW? How many DPO?? Any symptoms?

I'm 3-4 DPO (I'm pretty sure) but today I've been having a lot of cramping (more like sharp pains) on my right side....so I don't know if they are OV pains or not?! but the last time I got a positive OPK was CD 15 (I'm currently CD 18) & nipples are sore (but I noticed they have been sore since I started taking royal jelly) haha I'm trying not to "read" into these symptoms too much Wink

TMarie - I find it SO hard to not read into things whenever there is a possibility. Now that we're TTCing it's driven me nuts. I have tried to not read into it but it's so hard.

Mrs. Furtado - That would be the sweetest wedding present!!

AFM - We're at 9 DPO (assuming I did O last friday and not this weekend like the OPKS think). I've had sore boobs, been tired but not exhausted, emotional, nauseous if I don't' eat. I've been having some aversions to textures (seeing beef, feeling chicken) and hearing DD chew her food was killing me the other night. Trying no to read into things . . .

Oh its so hard not to read into everything! I've been comparing how I feel to previous months, but since I've never had a BFP, I don't know what "normal" pg symptoms feel like.

And, I discovered two week wait website, & members post their symptoms at each DPO. Prob not a good thing since now I'll be on their everyday until AF. Ahhhh

That sounds really interesting! I honestly can't recall how "different" I felt before my BFP with DD because we weren't trying so I wasn't paying attention to it, I just remember feeling different. I know my bbs didn't start hurting for a few weeks but since I've gotten my cycles back I've had a few months (with preventing) that I swore I was pregnant because I wasn't on bcps anymore and my pms symptoms are just like early pregnancy (like all the websites/books say). Maddening stuff!

I've only had one BFP and my first clue was that my bbs weren't sore. They typically, but not always, got sore just prior to AF. Otherwise, I had slilght cramping and generally felt like AF was coming. AFTER my BFP I noticed more symptoms (nipples hurt BAD...felt like they were on fire). Morning sickness didn't start until closer to 6 weeks. Even on non-pg cycles I have a lot of variation. Normal, non-pg for me is nausea starting around 8 dpo. Some cycles I have mild cramping pre-AF. Other cycles, I don't. I tell myself that early symptoms aren't very useful (except in hindsight after a BFP), BUT I still check those posts and obsess, too. Wink

TWW is driving me crazy as well....I'm reading and looking up every twinge,cramps and what should be going on the days after "O"....Yesterday(sunday) around (4'sh) I had lots of crampiness..this was the around the same time I had "O" like pains on the right side on last Sunday..yesterday evening I was cramping off and started bloating ....today I feel a little bloated....had some lower abdominal twinges off and on, and was so sleepy I to took a 2 hr nap......I'm trying my best not to read into anything but is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! FREAK-EN HARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!... If nothing happens this month I will be VERY VERY DISAPPOINTED!!!!

Michelle - how many DPO are you?? Last night my sharp pains got worse, like O pains, but OPK test Sat, Sun, & today were all neg, so I don't think it was that. and I was soooo irritated, like I just didn't want hubby to touch me, haha. but that could also be b/c I was so restless & couldn't fall asleep.

Like I have these symptoms, but then talk myself out of them b/c I don't want to get disappointed. I've read almost every person's symptoms on twoweekwait.com & I've had ton of them in previous cycles, & all BFN, and I keep hoping I'll find someone who has the EXACT same story as me and can be like "YES THIS IS IT!" haha, but yes, everyone is different so I can't obsess....easier said than done!!

TMarie That's awesome that your LP lets you shave off a few days. Biggrin

Mrs Furtado - Keeping busy is key. What are you knitting? I only know the basics and keep telling myself I'm going to sit down with my MIL sometime and have her show me more as she's masterful, but I haven't done it yet. I love the idea of making hats for my kid(s) and stuff like that.

I am starting to think I either implanted really late or did in fact O when my OPKs thought (this past weekend instead of two weekends ago). I'm 12 DPO by the initial time I thought I O'd and yesterday I had cm with pinkish brown tinge to it. If I O'd this past weekend, I'd be about 4 DPO. My symptoms have been three fold what they were and my temp went up a bit this am so I'm hoping that was implantation. Just sucks that instead of AF being due 4/21 it'd be the 28th. Thankfully it's warm enough to take DD outside a lot and get my mind off things.
