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. I'm SUPER hungry. Maybe I should start dinner for myself and the kids...Or I could keep obsessing.. I mean 'researching' symptoms. haha
I'm SUPER hungry. Maybe I should start dinner for myself and the kids...Or I could keep obsessing.. I mean 'researching' symptoms. haha
I just want to say that I appreciate your obsessing! I'm a bit behind you (6DPO) and am feeling very similar to you - so good to know I'm not the only person who obsesses like this!
I love how supportive you gals are being, thanks
Jordan, you're soooooo pregnant!!!
Nope. I'm behind you guys too!!! And overly obsesses
I don't normally do this, of course I haven't ever been TTC either. I never really paid attention to any symptoms of past pregnancies, I was actually working with my MIL when I implanted in May of this year, I thought it was a UTI and had my GYNO call in a script for it, cause it felt to a T like a UTI, and then I started spotting and I was freaking out, I never imagined I could be pregnant. But a missed period in June lead me to a blaring positive. So this is all fairly new to me. After our m/c at the end of July we decided we would wait and as the month went on we both got baby fever and pretty much said "why wait". So here we are, or here I am, obsessing over every little thing that could potentially be a bfp!
I'm glad I have you ladies to vent/obsess with, DH doesn't understand, he said to me earlier "you know it's too early to get a positive so why do you keep wanting to pee on a stick" I just told him, he didn't understand.
Kristi- I hope you're sooo right. Otherwise i have to do this all again next month.
I have LIGHT PINK CM!
Seriously!? Who get's excited about this!? If DH was home, he would probably have me checked into an institution. Ugh, I know waiting until Friday or even Saturday would be best, but dammit! I want to POAS!
THE SUSPENSE!!!! Gosh I can't wait til Friday LOL...I am still a week away from testing and its driving me crazy. Today my b/f was saying all these cute things about having kids and it melted my heart. I have been sooooo super emotional lately...It is driving me insane. I cry over EVERYTHING!
hahah. It's driving me insane too. Took everything I had not to POAS this morning (found DH's hiding spot, he really needs to find a better one) : ) Promised him I'd wait until tomorrow though. BUT, Brushed my teeth this morning and about threw up in the sink. I have absolutely no gag reflex except when I'm pregnant. these next 24 hours or so are going to go by way too slowly!
Misty- Hope this is it for you too!
Eek, Jordan, I’m soooo excited for you!!! This day is gonna drag huh?
AFM – well I started spotting yesterday. Mostly brown discharge, but hasn’t picked up as of today. I’m only 13 DPIUI (doc said I O’d on CD 16), but today is CD 29 for me! Usually my cycles are 24-26 days, however last cycle I started Clomid, and my cycle was only 27 days (we didn’t do an IUI, it was just a test cycle on clomid) on 9 DPIUI I felt a weird pain, which could have been implantation, which means that spotting that started yesterday could be IB? I’ve never been pregnant before, so I have NO clue what IB looks like, or how long it last for me. And just like most of us, I.CAN.NOT.STOP.OBSESSING. !!!!!!
Do you believe in signs? Over a year ago, I contacted a “baby psychic” (actually got her name on this site, many others have used her) She told me that she saw the month of September. Meaning I would either conceive, find out, or give birth that month. And here we are and our FIRST IUI happens to fall in the month of September. (and there was a 0% chance we could have gotten pregnant naturally as DH has azoospermia, and it’s not like I purposely waited for this month to start)
So like I said, can’t stop obsessing. Every day I goggle something new. So yesterday when spotting started, I got SUPER upset (naturally!). I work for a large hospital, there isn’t much parking on campus, therefore we’re required to park at a satellite lot and take a shuttle in. So yesterday on the way home, the shuttle driver (a mid-70 year old man) ask a question out loud (keep in mind the bus is full of RN’s, except me, I’m not an RN!) “Ladies, when the egg is fertilized, does it implant immediately, or take a few days?” !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I kid you not!!?!?! Who ask that, mind you, a 75 year old man, to a shuttle full of strangers!?!?!?! My heart literally fell to my stomach, and my heart started beating quickly. Now if you’re a believer in signs, what would you think of this?!?!?!?!
(Note: while I did know the answer to his question, I didn’t speak up, let someone else answer!)
I haven’t POAS since Tuesday morning – I’m so afraid of the BFN. (and wasting $ on a test) I’d rather just wait until AF shows, or doesn’t show. I told myself that if AF doesn’t show by end of today, I’ll test in the morning. (DH is going away this weekend until Monday, and we both wanna know before then!!)
I’m so afraid of talking about it and jinxing myself. I fear even writing this, and then my next post having to say “I’m out…”.
I had forgotten I got a prediction from Cheri too! (Is that her name?) Well I thought she was wrong, because she said September, and we got pregnant in Nov/Dec with a August EDD. I had a m/c, but if we are pregnant this cycle, I should find out in September!
Well ladies I caved, I was at Walmart with my MIL and I bought another 3 pack of FRER (just so DH couldn't say we had to wait because we didn't have anymore) haha. POAS and BFN. I've been having light pink spotting since last night, today there's a few red spots. I hope AF isn't coming 4 days early, AF has never been early. Feeling discouraged now. I'll see how the spotting goes and maybe I'll wait until Monday to see if AF arrives. God, I hate when DH is right! : )
TMarie- Everything sounds very promising! I'm usually a believe in 'signs'. I hope this is it for you!!
Awe Jordan, crossing everything for you!
Jordan - I'm hoping that it's too soon for a BFP and that what you're experiencing today is IB like me!!! FX!!!
I also wanted to eleborate on my last posting about "signs". I obviously realize that just b/c an old man talks about fertilization/implantation, doesn't mean that you're pregnant! I was just feeling really down and upset b/c I thought AF was coming, , but then bleeding wasn't picking up, and just wanted to KNOW (AF or NO AF!?!?!) and I look for signs everywhere...and then to hear that on the shuttle made me stop and think "maybe that's a sign, maybe God is reaching out to me to let me know not to lose faith"....only time will tell!!!!
Here's to our BFP!!!!!!!!
Bleeding hasn't picked up for me as of yet. Wearing a liner just in case, but it seems to only be when I wipe. FX for you! I do the same thing, I've a bazillion pregnant women lately, especially at my kids school and i'm like "Hmmmmm...". We'll see, I say I'm going to wait until Monday, but we all honestly know that's not true. haha : )
So sorry about the BFN but its not over yet!! I threw up twice this morning so maybe that is a good sign but could have been because I hadn't eaten in quite awhile as well. We will see.
FX for everyone during this TWW. I almost prefer not TTC and just letting things take their course. This obsessing and everything else is draining.
You're only obsessing because you're trying! I'm the same and never thought about it when I conceived DD.
Ok, what the heck does FX mean? I've been here since 2007 and I still don't get all the abbreviations lol.
Ps. I'm getting shooting pains in my bbs!!
FX is Fingers Crossed. : ) Not sure I like the obsessing, I think AF is here, though I could be wrong, I'm 4 days early if that's the case, which has never happened before.
Shooting pains is a good sign!
I hope ya wrong, would love to share a bb with you lol.
My goodness I have one busy day being distracted by a book and I lose track.
So for those testing in the next few days, good luck.
For those with a week or so more to go, how are you staying distracted?
I have been head first into a book (well my iPad as I can't hold novels anymore). Also DS is on spring break and had been at a special needs Vacation care where an older child has attacked him. (So see my blog about that mummy guilt.)
I am so tired at the moment with waves of nausea mid morning. I also have a majour case of sore breasts. (Tender can not cover it lol.) Oh how I love my sports bras and nana naps.
what does bb stand for exactly?
Sounding good Jodie!
Jodie and Kristi, sounds like you both have some great symptoms.
So, even if I'm out this time, I'll still have a June due date if we catch it next month! You ladies are stuck with me! :bleh:
Sounds good Jodie! Crossing everything for you
Bb is birth board and bbs is boobies hahaha.
Jordan, that would be ace - arrrrgh! I'm debating whether to wait for my next AF due date and see if I come on before testing again.
When is your next AF due? Do you ever go a month without AF? I would be calling the doctor, but again I'm very impatient.
Will be due again on oct 16th. It can vary a couple of days at the most, I've never gone this long before.
I'm gonna stick it out before rushing the docs. I only ever go if I think it's life threatening haha.
For me my symptoms just have to stick around and not fade out over the next few days. This time last Friday I had a trigger injection to do IUI. Sigh the false hope it gives does your head in.
20 days?! I would absolutely go insane. I can barely wait 1 day!
Update, the light bleeding seems to have slowed down, for now, not to say it's not going to come back with raging force later, but a glimmer of hope in my so-so day. I also have a dull headache/sore throat and these annoying waves of nausea. If this is AF, this is a very mean, mean trick.
Another update- I'm pretty sure this is AF, no cramping or anything but it's getting heavier. I can't wait for everyone's updates! Especially you Kristi!!! And Jodie, I hope your symptoms don't go away and this is it for you too!
Took another digi today, whyyyyyyyyy am I doing this to myself!? Another BFN. Technically 3 weeks tonier ow that we first DTD this cycle.
Def def holding out now until Oct 16th!!!
Sorry Kristi:bigarmhug: I hope you get answers soon!
I think we're just going to have fun from now on, I can't do this craziness again. We'll just DTD and if it happens it happens. I was thinking and I've always had a 28 day cycle, this month apparently it was 24 days. The last time I got pregnant (May of this year) I started AF on 5/9, Implanted on 5/15 ( had what felt like a UTI and dark few drops of blood) Found out I was pregnant after I AF was late on 6/5. DH and i only DTD on 5/8 that entire month because I was gone for work. So I'm just going to wing it from now on and hopefully we'll have a good outcome.
Still sticking around here though, I like you ladies and if we catch it this time I'll still be here : )
It's all very stressful, I'm not gonna lie!
So I had an really uncomfortable feeling down below tonight. Went to the batroom and had a feel around and it feels like I have a million tumours down their don't worry, it's not but its prolapse
This scares the crap outta me!!
Oh my! I hope you get it checked out and everything is okay
My bleeding has almost stopped and is turning brown. WTF is going on with my body!? I've never experienced anything like this before. So naturally I POAS. BFN, not surprised, really. Ugh. Why can't our bodies just do what they're supposed to do!
I can't keep track of where everyone is in there cycles. I wish you had tickers so I could tell if your BFNs are early tests or not! lol Keeping my fingers crossed for everyone either way.
I'm on 12DPO today, Started what I'm assuming is AF on the evening of 9DPO, Which I should have started AF on 14DPO. So, I'm all sorts of screwy.
ugh no fun Jordan and Kristi!!!
9DPO, I can see the next 3-4 days going slow. Although DS is on holidays still and there is no vacation care this week with the exception of a few hour Friday.
Breast still very sore. LOTS of ovary pain (I have PCOS) that had me worried yesterday, which if it is still bad Tuesday will see my GP about as my RE is on leave this week.
Good luck Jodie, I hope this is it.
Wishing you all tons of luck ladies!
Ok, so I took another flaming test and still BFN. Confused dot com!!!!
Still no AF (was due sept 16th) but the nausea has stopped, thank The Lord. I'm going out of my mind wondering if I'm still testing too early or if something is seriously wrong with me - kinda lol'ing.
I just can't explain the no AF cuz it's normally like clock work. Now I'm worrying if its something to do with the prolapse. Only 17 more days to go to see if she rears her ugly head in Oct, if not and still BFN i will be straight to the doctors!
I'm 10DPO. Have been cramping since Friday. This is reminiscent of when I found out I was pregnant with DS but also of the last few cycles before AF came so I don't really know what to think.
Jodie- FX this is it for you!
Kristi-I have no experience with prolapse, so I'm not much help, but I hope you get answers quickly!
I'm wishing AF away. She keeps slowing down and then when I think it's over there she is again as fierce as ever. Ugh, I want to start BD'ing!
Thanks ladies. I am trying not to get my hopes up.
Kristi I really hope you can work out what is going on soon. You have some serious patience waiting that long.
Fingers crossed for you Julie and Jodie!
I spent all day saturday nauseous. I thought it was motion sickness from a drive through the mountains but we got home at 5 and I still felt sick at 10 when I went to bed so I tested this morning with an IC, 10 DPO, BFN. Last month I had a barely visible line at 14 DPO so I'm hoping I'm just testing too early but who knows.
You are NOT gonna believe this.
So, I was laying in bed last night and it suddenly occured to me that it was impossible for me to have been on AF Aug 16th. I remembered being on annual leave from work for 2 weeks and having AF on my return. For SOME unknown reason, I had the 16th in my head - thinking back, I think it's because I had quite bad cramping, that felt like AF pains etc. Anyway, I just got into work and looked at the holiday list - AF was Aug 26th!!! Technically, I'm now just a week late but OMG - no wonder I have been going out of my mind LOL!
Still hoping I have a chance!!
I'm out for June. I guess I was more like 14 DPO yesterday, not 10...Or there are other issues that I don't know about...because AF arrived this morning. Good times, happy Monday.
Sorry to hear that Julie!
Oh no julie. I'm so sorry
AF arrived for me at 10DPO this month too, which I have a clockwork AF and she doesn't arrive until 14DPO. Who know what's going on! But I am so sorry to hear Julie
Becca- Fingers Crossed! I hope you're just testing too early and get your BFP soon!
Kristi- OMG! That is some great news!!! I'm crossing everything i have for you!
Good luck Kristi and Jodie! Hope this is it for you two So sorry for all the BFNs and AF's but glad some of you still have a chance for June! Im still waiting to test. AF is due 10/5 so getting close finally but trying to keep busy to keep my mind off of it
I don't really want to say it out loud, but it feels like AF might be on her way
I'm still hoping I'm wrong - I mean, over a month since she last visited!!
