TWW

And here I am talking to myself again Blum 3 I know it will be awhile before anyone joins me. Lets get this TWW show on the road. I personally am hoping it passes quickly with two lines at the end.

So 5dpo, too early for nausea right. I felt so sick this morning and woke up with a headache. I still have to do some cleaning before the in laws visit and will probably be limited on here for the next few days, I'll be back properly around 10dpo ish.

Oh and I had the tiniest amount of blood when I wiped yesterday as well. I'm trying to stay positive this month, I will be pregnant, I will be pregnant. Wine tasted nasty last night but I think it was just that wine because hubby said it was gross as well

I'll keep you company, just for conversation. I'm not in the tww yet but you have to have some people to get you though this Wink
I'm sending all my luck over to you! That would be amazing news.

How are you doing Wendy? I know you are busy with company. Hope the visit is going well and keeping your mind off of the TWW.

Feeling really down lately, 8dpo and no sign of anything. This sucks. I didn't even feel like wine last night and I was in bed by 9pm so no fried Camembert (fresh from a local dairy we went to yesterday) either. I just want an answer, either yes I am pregnant or no i'm not so I can set up IUI stuff seeing as getting a freeze for hubby's contribution is hard. IOn saying that IU don't want another 10 day LP this month

Well I thought I was out last night, got to my Mum's after dinner and was bleeding. It didn't pick up overnight but was still there in the morning, slowed throughout the day. I also had a temp rise this morning so who knows. I have never had spotting early on and turn into anything positive, though I did have spotting from 9 weeks when pregnant with DS. I guess I will know soon enough.

I'm joining in; I just got a peak on my monitor yesterday and had severe O pains around 8pm last night. My temp dropped yesterday morning and went up today. I put in fake temps for the next three days and FF gave me cross hairs for yesterday. So, I really think I'm at 1 DPO today (9/18/13).

I was a bit worried that are chances were lower than I would have liked this month because of our timing. Just read an article that says the two days before ovulation are the best time wise to have sex! Woo Hoo!! We hit that timing. Unfortunately didn't bed on the day of ovulation and tried to the morning after (today) but got interupted by our 7 yr old daughter waking up -- UGH! So, I'm really hoping those two days before really are the best Smile

Baby dust to all!!

Good luck, I hope you caught the eggie.

Spotting is still going. I am noticing an increase with TMI Bowel movements. I feel a bit off this morning and temp dropped back to where it has been sitting for days. I want to stay positive but it's getting so hard.

I think this is looking promising for you christa, I'm really hoping for the best!

Wendy keep an open mind, I know easier said then done but you never know, everything is so sensitive, I think we start to feel things because we want things to happen so badly

Do we really know what everything really means!?! I don't even know anymore

Katie, it's getting easier as the months pass by to lose hope, I am up to something like cycle 19 of TTC.

Keeping my fingers crossed for you Wendy! If you have had early spotting like this before maybe you should mention it before you do IUI. Did they ever test to make sure you don't have a progesterone issue during LP?

The doctor did not want to do any tests he sees my charts as textbook and can not see anything wrong with them. When we do IUI (if this cycle is a bust) I will be asking for progesterone, especially because of that 10 day LP last month and a few times I have had spotting prior to af which isn't always an issue. It's also over $100 (i think my initial consult was $180) to see the specialist, plus a 3 hour round trip which pretty much means a day off work, my local gp is useless and was the one who was dragging out the process by sending hubby for an SA, then giving him antibiotics for a possible infection (no evidence except for something minor in his SA which may indicate infection) then a repeat SA and on and on. The spotting has pretty much been gone since about mid morning, I thought it had picked up massively at one point but thankfully not, seriously though I think it could be the weather and drinking a lot of water but damn I am sick of peeing.

Hi Ladies,

Currently in the TWW - and wow it's been a long time since I've been here! DH & I have been TTC for over 2 years, but not really "trying" for the past year as DH has azoospermia. However last Friday was our first IUI and now I'm 6 DPO!!! I'm SUPER excited, and trying not to get our hopes up too much...

Good Luck Ladies!!! Smile

Wendy, I'm praying you get your BFP. I'm so sorry hun. I just want to give you a hug.
Your chart does look great! Try to keep your head up. What did y'all tell me? It's not over until the witch arrives. I'm praying she stays away.

I'm 9 dpiui (CD 25) and I caved this morning and POAS. BFN Sad But I'm not losing hope as I realize it's still so early! I've been having cramping (on & off) since the day after the IUI. I haven't noticed I'm extra tired and my boobs aren't sore, but I have noticed other "weird" things...like my hair has been falling out a lot more than normal. I also have these small bumps on my forehead along my hairline. Of course I googled it and some women have experiences these same things in pregnancy...then again, I think you could turn ANYTHING into a symptom of pregnancy. LOL!

So anyone having symptoms?

I guess I am over here now. And would be 2DPO (based on Saturday night ovulation pain and the Trigger being Friday morning).

Marie each cycle we do I have a very different 2ww worth of symptoms.

FX for everyone here, hoping we all get BFP's this cycle. My last pregnancy I felt like I had a UTI accompanied by spotting, that ended in a m/c at 11w at the end of July. I didn't realize I was pregnant or have any suspicion until the day i was supposed to get my period and it didn't come. Tested that night and got a dark BFP right away. Yesterday, (5DPO) and today I've had AF like cramps and today lower back pain, I woke up at 4am to pee and couldn't fall back asleep. Praying we caught the egg this month. I'll be testing on Friday, I'll be 11DPO.

I just asked on the other board when you planned on testing - got my answer here! Smile Oh I'm praying we all get our BNP this month!!! I haven't been on the boards in such a long time (at least a year!) since DH & I have been dealing with infertility, it was difficult to read about others getting pregnant. We didn't try for a year b/c well, we couldn't. I started a new job (which was only temporary), and DH didn't want to do more testing, and possibly IVF knowing that I didn't have a permanent job. And now that we are FINALLY getting somewhere, I'm excited to be back and going thru this with others Smile

I will be good, I am going to test at 13DPO, we have a wedding when I am 14DPO. Also I see my family dr on the night of 12DPO and seeing my RE will be away on holidays I will get him to write me a pathology slip just in case. I am going to try holding out...

So I've been pretty good, I haven't bought any tests or talked about it much really (except here, of course) : ) DH went to the store today to get some chicken... He returned home with 3 FRER's. I'm telling you it's a sickness, haha. I ran into the bathroom and POAS. Nothing came up within the 2 min I was in there, and DH was off to work, so I came out to say goodbye and got distracted with dishes/laundry. Remembered my test and ran in the bathroom, probably about an hour or so later, and there is a second faint PINK solid line. I'm assuming I shouldn't put too much into this, since it was over the time limit. I thought that evap's were either indents or gray, no color?

Well, I'll test in the morning with FMU and wait this time!

I hope its a BFP for you but don't put to much stock in a test after the time limit. It's way better to call that one inconclusive and just hope for good news in the morning! Smile

I am finally over here. FF says I O'd on Thursday (CD30 @@) so 5 DPO today. I didn't realize it until today because I took a break from entering my temps after I hit CD 30. I was just stressing too much. Happy to be here finally and hoping for BFPs for everyone!!!

That's what I was pretty much figuring, getting my hopes up would just be too horrible if it's a BFN. I'll test first thing in the morning and see. : )

FX for the rest of you girls that we see some BFP's soon!

I just realized my EDD would be 2 days before my BFFs wedding if I get a BFP this cycle. I'm supposed to be her MOH. I still hope I'm pregnant but that will not be a fun phone call to make.

Hi ladies,

Thought I would join in Smile

Bare with me, I get so confused when you all talk DPOs etc haha.

Kixsgc, sorry are you Jordan or Jesse? hehe. I can't wait to hear if you get a BFP! You could be June's first Smile

Becca, I'm sure if she's a real good friend she will understand. She might be peed at first, but she'll get over it I'm sure Smile

POAS about 4 minutes ago and there is a SUPER SUPER faint line. I could possibly be imagining this, that's how faint it is. This is driving me mad, I'm going to wait until Friday and test again....if I can hold out that long.

Becca-I'm sure she'll understand. I hope you get your BFP too!

Kristi- I still can't believe you haven't POAS yet!

Oooooh a line - don't you hate when it's so faint that you think you might be having double vision? haha. Can you post a pic so we can help you out?

Ahhh I know, me neither! I am soooo tempted to get one at lunch, but I don't want to tempt fate.

It's really not worth posting a picture, it looks stark white now, i can't even see the imaginary line. that i saw this morning. haha

I'm only 9DPO, I'm going to wait (hopefully) until Friday or Saturday. Or maybe DH will just show up with more tests and I can POAS until AF is supposed to come. haha, I swear, I've never tested so early, My first PG with my first husband I was late before I tested, same with my second PG, This last PG with my DH now was a crazy accident and I was in CT because my mom was in the NICU for a stroke/aneurysm when I found out I was PG (and I was late then too). So this is the first time I've ever TTC and have tested before AF was supposed to show.

I feel crazy! haha.

How late are you? I would totally POAS. But then again, we've seen how crazy I am lately. haha

I think because we know what it feels like to be pregnant, as soon as we 'think' we have a symptom we convince ourselves lol. I have done this soooo many times and always been devastated when AF arrived. Usually though, that would be after being 1 day later - this time I am 8 days late.

I just went to the bathroom at work and the lady before me left a terrible odor in the cubicle. I was a little sick in my mouth and had to vomit before even getting chance to pull my pants up! If I'm not pregnant, this is some serious tummy bug lol.

Sounds promising Jordan! KUP!

Kristi - go POAS already! 8 days late is late enough to be seeing a doctor for all the puking you are doing if you aren't pregnant!

Becky - so glad to see you finally over in the TWW. Your BFF will have to get over any annoyance she feels.

Haha I know you're right Mel!

Thing is, the first time we DTD in this cycle was only 3 weeks ago this coming weekend and I have heard that a BFP won't show until at least 21 days afterwards. That's the only reason I am holding out!

So when will you test Kristi?

Jordan, welcome to POAS Addict Anonymous (well not so anonymous lol)
I peed on a stick everyday until AF came for cycle 1 and thought I would hold out until I missed AF for cycle 2...but I tested on 9DPO and couldn't stop. I got my faint line on 11DPO.

Even though I thought I was out...these girls here kept my hope up! It's not over till the witch shows up. Smile

I'm so excited for all of y'all!

Edit to add: I know I'm technically in May but I can't help it. I wanna see y'all get your BFPs. And hey...I'm due at the end of May with my first vaginal delivery. Who knows when this baby will be here. Smile (that's what I tell myself to excuse my board watching lol)

This is a no holds bar post. haha, Was over at MIL helping her clean out one of her spare bedrooms, and I would have sworn AF had shown up (not due until the 30th) I excused myself to the bathroom only to find basically a puddle of watery CM. Holding back from testing.. again...DH will be so glad when all this craziness is over, either from a BFP or the witch. I honestly will too! But until either of those happen, I'll continue to feel insane. Wink

Kristi- this is like my own personal soap opera, waiting to see who gets their BFP's. You need to POAS! (nothing like peer pressure) Smile Hope to see a happy update soon!

I am so frikkin mad at myself! Could not resist and just spent almost $20 on 2 digi tests. POAS and there you have it, BFN Sad

I'm not giving up hope just yet though. I'm sure I'm right this time *say this EVERYtime haha*. If no AF by beginning of Oct ill use the other test.

Grrrrrrrrr.

Yea I totally understand. So my last AF was Aug 16th, then we DTD for the first time this cycle not even 3 weeks ago so I'm still hanging on in there, believe me lol.

Roll on Oct 1st!

Only 6 more days : ) Less than a week sounds even better! Hope you get a BFP or some kind of answer! I'd be going insane.. (wait, i am already and i'm not even late yet!)

DH thinks I'm slowly sliding into clinically insane I just know it, we just took a shower and before we got in I noticed my chest (neck-down) I have clearly visible dark blue veins, which doesn't happen unless I'm PG. Maybe I'm just pulling at straws here...

Awww Kristi. I hope you get your BFP soon. Those digi tests are a lot less sensitive than the dye tests.

Jordan, girl I'm feeling really good about you getting a BFP.

Dh hid my last FRER before he left for work... I don't know why he doesn't trust that I won't POAS until Friday. ROFL

I'm SUPER hungry. Maybe I should start dinner for myself and the kids...Or I could keep obsessing.. I mean 'researching' symptoms. haha
