Amanda- don't think I will test this month. If AF isn't here by the 13th then I'll test. My LP is around 10 days. Not feeling it at all. I don't think my temp looks promising, what do you think? I would love to be here with you. I told my dh about you getting your bfp and he says congrats:)

Meg- I checked your blog out. I feel for you. I understand not seeing that second line it sucks. I've got a good feeling for you. Sticky vibes coming your way.

Hope all is well with the rest of you ladies.
