I spotted for two days starting Mar 30th... so I'm on CD 99. I've been exclusively BFing and inconsistently taking the mini-pill (missed 4 just this month in 2 day increments... I'm horrible at remembering). The last time we DTD was June 23.. two weeks ago tomorrow.
If I go on whenmybaby.com's preg test calculator, and put Jun 23 as day of ovulation, then the first day to test (4 days before AF) was Saturday, being AF is "due" Tuesday. However, I am also keeping in mind that if we got pregnant from the last time we DTD, it might not have "happened" until a day or two after knowing how long the average life span of a spermie is... I have NO clue where I am in my cycle by my syptoms are the following:
allergy type symptoms- itchy nose, itchy ear canals, dry/bloody nose
craving water and Gatorade
tender nips (could be from bfing a distracted lo)
Daniel is fussy while nursing could be teething but my sis weaned herself to the bottle when my mom got pregnant with me, they say the taste/consistency changes. Well, I can SEE that the consistency has changed to less fatty.
milk supply decreasing
intolerance to heat
smells making me nauseous
the feeling like I need to pee, though there is not much to come out....
oh yeah, and a cold sore

My son will be 4 months on the 9th and I've been FFing him for about a month now. I EPd for about 2.5 - 3 months. I had a very light AF when he was 2 months, and this month my cycle came back where it was before I got pregnant. So my body basically stopped AF for 11 months, and then came back to its normal self. Is it possible your body did the same thing? The sore boobs were my first sign of being pg, and really the only one until I got heartburn around 6 months I hope you test again tomorrow! I think you have another bundle of joy en route!

The pic does look like a positive to me.
I found out I was pregnant with our second child when my first DS was only 6 months old. Talk about a shock! We had TTC our first son for over 2 years, so we took for granted it would take a while to conceive #2. We were not planning on having our kids so close together. It was so strange when I found out I was pregnant again. With our first pregnancy, I was thrilled and elated. With the second one I was shocked, in denial, petrified, sad, and only a little bit happy. I went through that whole pregnancy feeling anxious about having 2 kids under 2 years old.
Well, now our boys are 18-months-old and 5-months-old, and things are wonderful. We settled into having a second baby around really easily. Looking back, I wouldn't change a thing. My first DS was only 13-months-old when my second DS was born, so he was too young to really be jealous. Once you find your groove as a mom to 2 under 2, it's really not bad at all!
Best of luck!
Well, thank you all. My first thought when seeing that line was that it was a positive, but now I'm getting bfn's on FRER's. I tested with FMU today and it's snow white.
I think I have decided that I want to be pregnant but I know that that won't happen unless God decides to give it to me. DH and I both know that it's too soon for us and not the right timing (in our opinion) for our family, especially financially speaking.
I'm not sure what to think right now as my symptoms are very promising and I feel miserable. I feel pregnant, but I trust the FRER's more than the blue dye Equates.
I am taking into consideration that I was having promising symptoms with DS#2 and tested neg with FRER then retested 4 or 5 days later and only had an FRER Digi left and it came positive and shocked the heck out of me.
I'm thinking I might do the same here, retest again on Friday.
I need to call and make an appointment with my doc in case I'm not, to discuss our bc options because we don't want to go through this again any time soon (maybe 6 months from now) but at the same time, I don't want to get in the way of God's plan for us. My first two pregnancies came within 5 months of quitting bc, but my 2nd was a m/c and then it took 2 years to conceive Daniel (my 6 month old).
I guess what I'm saying is I don't know what's going on and I don't know what I want, but I know that DH would wait 2 years beforing "giving in" to another baby.
Anyway, thanks again. I'll let you know *if* I test on Friday and what it says.

And I know how you feel about being unsure... but keep Faith that the Lord will bring you a LO when the time is right! No matter how much we try one way or the other, He manages to bring us our babies at the right time!
Well, I called the doc and they said to come in right away for a pee test.
So I did and the tech told me when drawing blood that the pee test was snow white neg. Should get the results of the blood test tomorrow if it gets sent out on time today (Monday, if not).
I think I'm gonna go to Wal-Mart again and buy another Equate pack just to see what it says now.

When I was about 4 weeks preggo with my son, I went to the doc for a blood draw and they did a pee test which was also stark white negative. But, the beta came back positive, and I'd already gotten a positive digital test at home, which are evidently more sensitive than the ones the doctors use. Just FYI!
