TWW

Officially in the TWW Smile

AF is due the 23rd and I'm hoping to hold off on testing until the 22nd. Usually I fold and test way to early so one day before would be doin pretty good for me.

I guess I'm technically here though my TWW is just waiting for AF so we can start fertility drugs again. I'm CD19 today so I know if I O'd it would have happened by now. Hopefully I'll just be here a week or so and then be on to actually trying. I'll hang here to wish everyone luck though. Smile Good luck Megan!

I think I may have ovulated this morning as I had lots of pressure in my abdomen and pain in both ovaries. DH and I DTD this morning and we will every other day for the next few days just in case. AF is supposed to show on DH birthday (Poor DH :(, lol) So I would love to get a BFP and show that to him for part of his birthday gift Biggrin

Well FF has given me a new O date - now it's saying I'm 5 DPO which oddly coincides with when my bbs started killing me so maybe, who knows. If AF hasn't shown in another week or so I might test again.

Michelle that's funny my dh's bday is the 21st and AF is due the 20th. I thought about surprising him on his bday but there's no way I would be able yo wait until then if I get a bfp on 9-10 dpo I know I won't be able to hold off testing much longer than that.

Crystal sorry that your cycle is so crazy! I think 5 dpo could make sense with the symptoms you were having but then again you could totally be pg too! GL!

Crystal - With that crazy cycle going on, I hope I see a BFP real soon in your future!! Biggrin

Tiffany - I know what you mean about the testing. It is really hard to hold off sometimes. My new philosophy is keeping no pee sticks in the house and only buying one when AF is late. Working pretty good so far, but we'll see lol.

AFM - Still not sure if I ovulated yesterday or if I ovulated today. Ugh. I had the swollen bloating feeling in my abdomen and painful ovaries, but today I am swollen/bloated with painful ovaries and EWCM. So I don't know if that means yesterday, today or maybe tomorrow is/was O day? Either way, DH and I DTD yesterday and today and we will see if we can get it in tomorrow too.

THanks Michelle, I hope to see one in your future too!

I have friend who tried for 10 years to get pg, went through clomid and IUI etc then went to an IVF consult. She and her hubby decided against IVF because of the injections and expense. Little did they know at the time they were already expecting! They went on to have 4 kids in 6 years!! COMPLETELY NATURALLY!! Is that not insane?! Gives me a little hope Smile

I think I need to go away for a stay in a padded room lol. Today I swear I talked myself into being nauseous. Can you even do such a thing?? I felt kinda weird in the tummy area after we got back from the library (and let me tell you taking 6 kids to a place where they're supposed to be quiet can make anyone sick). So I start to make dinner and start to feel more funky then I get a **LIGHTBULB** moment and I start thinking must be nauseous total pg symptom!!! So then I really did start feeling pukey and went to sit down and let dh make dinner (we were just having frozen pizzas w/ some veggies on the side to make us feel like good parents lol since we were gone late at the library). I didnt eat much dinner but felt better after a little bit. I swear I'm gonna go crazy. I really want to test in the morning but I'll just be 7 dpo. Plus my symptoms are prolly all in my head.

Back away for the test Tiffany....(lol).....however, I hope that is a good sign(smile) ...when are you going to test? I can't wait to hear the outcome.

As a (attempting to quit) POAS a holic I know how hard it can be to stay away from those tests but remind yourself - the earlier you test the more likely you'll see a BFN because it's too early!

AFM - temps are inching up which is a good sign but bbs are feeling better (maybe because I stopped cramming them into a bra?) and today seem to have deflated a bit.

FINALLY heard back from Jenny Renny:
Original prediction:
Your reading reveals that your BFP news comes the month of June from a cycle that begins in May. The baby shows as a girl and her EDD/birth date is referenced the 15th of February 2013 and the 27th of January 2013.
Updated prediction:
Ok, well given that information -your reading shows a conception in October and given your length of cycles it aligns with a cycle that begins in September and a BFP would show the end of October/beginning of November. The baby shows as a girl and her EDD/birth date is referenced the 10th of July 2013 and the 30th of June 2013.

I held out this morning! And yes Crystal I feel the same way and I hate BFNs so I'm really trying to hold out. However my body is messing with my mind. My BBs have been a little sore since O but they feel fuller now and possible more sore and my face is breaking out like I'm a teenager again. Both of those things could totally be PMS too though. Ugh! I am trying hold out two more days atleast until 9dpo. That is still early to test but it's killing me not too already.

That is crazy about all the DH birthdays this month ! I hope you are all able to surprise them with BFP's Smile

My MIL's birthday is July 30th so if we are pg this cycle we are going to give her something baby related for her birthday in addition to her present. Tonight we had Salmon patties and Hamburgers with them and DH was like "Should you eat a Salmon patty?" and she was like "Are you pregnant ?!?!" I felt bad having to tell her no Smile Hopefully I will be able to say yes soon!

Tiffany - Don't feel bad because you are not alone ! I don't feel good today and I know it's not baby related but I want to believe it is ! I took a three hour nap and had an upset stomach, but I think I'm only 2DPO so ... it's probably just a stomach bug that I wish was a baby starting to grow Smile It's so hard not to test and even harder not to examine ever twinge in your body and hope! I'm going to make myself wait to by tests until the 22nd so that I'm not tempted. That way I will probably test the 23rd and still only be 12DPO.

Yeaaaaahhh that ship has already sailed lol I have 5 ICs and 2 FRERs! They call to me from my cupboard. I felt decidely irritable today. Which deflates my "I could be pg" mood. 7 dpo is a really normal time to start PMSing thus the reason for my irritability. BAH! Not a speck of nausea today either. Its early days yet but my nausea is usually present by 12-13 dpo. I need to distract myself from this roller coaster of emotions. We are going to a drive-in tomorrow night which will be a nice break we are taking 5 of the kids but leaving our 1 yo with my parents. We are watching Madagascar 3 and MIB 3. The drive in is about 45 mins away but we are lucky to have one close enough to go they are rare these days!

I swore I wasn't going to test again, trying to hold out and not buy any tests since I just spent $30 on HPT's and OPK's online, but it's getting harder and harder since I my bbs have been so sore and this morning I woke up feeling like I had 2 huge rocks (very sore rocks!) strapped to my chest. FF puts me at 9DPO and TCOYF puts me at 5DPO. Need the will power to hold out.... REALLY REALLY don't want to see another BFN....

Well I caved lol. Woke up feeling a little queasy and that pushed me over the edge. It was a bfn not surprisingly since I'm 8 dpo. I still have hope since its early lol my crazy self just couldn't hold out any longer! I swear I think I see a shadow on the test but it's probably just where I know the line should be. Since I broke the ice so to speak I will just keep testin now. I've had a bfn on cd 9 and a bfp on cd 10 before so who knows?????

Edited to add: Crystal your temps look good!!

Sorry about the BFN's Crystal & Tiffany ! Fingers crossed that it's just too early for both of you.

I am excited that we have ladies testing though. Can't wait for the 1st BFP for a March Baby Smile

If FF is right about my O date my EDD would be Feb 26 and if TCOYF is right about my O date my EDD would be March 2nd. Now based on my LMP my EDD would be Jan 25th (I'm on CD 58!) but that obviously wouldn't work! I want so badly for this to be it!!!! I've been cramping like crazy on and off for a week now and am unable to wear a bra. Nips are starting to feel better (not so much like they are on fire but still sore). This TWW might just be the end of me lol

Sorry Crystal about the bfn. I am sure we are both too early to get a reliable result either way so we will just keep the hope alive!

I was totally wrong about the tests I have too! I have 3 FRERs and 10 (well 9 now) ICs, woohoo for me! I'm breaking out a FRER in the morning :). I hate to waste one but the temptation is too great.

Yeah my edd would be Feb 27th according to FF and my LMP. I O'd on cd 15 and usually have a 29 day cycle so I figure that's pretty spot on. Still feeling nauseous! So testing in the morning. Even if it is early can't stop myself!!

Tiffany- I bet I'll be testing this time like crazy too! I was feeling symptoms for sure at 8-10dpo last time. I thought it was AF but every day that went by felt less like AF and more like something else though at the time I wasn't sure what that something else was. Lol. Before that I didn't believe you could have symptoms so fast but yeah...I'm a total believer now and a test pusher! So I'll be stalking you girl! Smile

Hi Leah :wavehello:

Good luck, Tiffany! Hope you get an early BFP Smile

Hi to everyone, haven't been around much as a hopeful on the birth boards, but this month we have at least a chance, so here I am. Hope you don't mind if I just start from this page.

Well if y'all didn't see on my other thread it's a bfn at 9 dpo for me. I'm sad and a bit mad if I'm being honest though at who escapes me. I'm still nauseous, still have other symptoms. Trying to keep the hope alive and think tomorrow will show something. It happened that way with my 1 yo bfn at 9 dpo and bfp at 10.

We will be out of town this weekend and I'm hoping I come home to some BFP news on Sunday !

Thanks, ladies.

Crystal - Hoping your temp goes back up!

Tiffany - Sorry about the BFN, it's never fun to see that white space. Hope you get a pink line tomorrow.

Megan - Have fun this weekend, hope good news awaits you when you return. Congrats on your weight loss, by the way. I lost about 25 lbs, then gained about half of it back :rolleyes: Now I'm working on losing it again but it's been a battle.

Ok I'm sure this is totally unrelated to any kind of symptom as I'm only 3 dpo, but just for something fun to talk about thought I'd mention it. Last night my left boob felt SO WEIRD. It was like someone was squeezing it from the inside. Strangest sensation I have ever had in my entire life. LOL. It lasted for oh, maybe a minute, then it went away.

What is everyone doing today? Fridays are payday for me Biggrin I'll be going grocery shopping, then tonight maybe getting together with my brother and his kids for dinner. My DD loves playing with her 3 yr old cousin.

Mary I totally feel you on the weight loss battle. I have the worst time losing weight even if I'm counting every calorie and exercising for an hour or more every day. It's hard! I've been walking 3 or more miles almost every day for 3 wks now which makes me feel awesome about myself and eating much better and while I've felt a change body shape wise I've only lost a little bit of weight. Weird about your boob lol!

Megan hope you have a great time this weekend!

AFM we aren't doing anything today really. The older kids went to go swimming at my parents they have an in ground pool. I'm gonna take my walk in the evening today it's super hot and humid out today. Other than that we have no plans maybe watch a movie. I like to go to eat too Michelle but my dh doesn't either if we do order out for food he'd rather bring it home, boring! Tomorrow we are going to a parade and Sunday an art fair and carnival the weather isn't supposed to break though so it will be hot!!!

So sorry for your loss Tiffany! Hugs!!!

Mary I have had no energy to run since the beginning of this horrible cycle, despite trying to watch what I'm eating the scale refuses to move :mad:

AFM My temp went back up this morning, however, timing of was not ideal for temping (hopefully that didn't mess it up too much). The dogs woke me up at 5am and I couldn't find my thermometer we found it after I let them out but obviously I couldn't temp then (not to mention I was freezing from letting them out), went back to sleep and woke up at 7 and took my temp then. I was going to retest again today but I will wait to see what happens with my temp tomorrow first.

Still bfn at 10 dpo. Ugh! Still have nausea, backache, sore BBs, skin breakouts and I have been fatigued all day today. I did find this chart on http://www.peestickparadise.com/FAQHPT1.html and it made me feel better! The whole article is interesting.

HPT accuracy by DPO:
10 dpo : 35%
11 dpo : 51%
12 dpo : 62%
13 dpo : 68%
14 dpo : 74%
15 dpo : 80%
16 dpo : 88%
17 dpo : 92%
18 dpo : 99%

Hi Michelle :wavehello:

Tiffany - sounds like you still have a decent chance Smile

Crystal - hope the higher temp was indeed accurate and tomorrow brings a darker line!

DH and I both love to go out to eat, so we have to really watch it or we'll overspend on our food budget. As for what we did today, DH had to work, and I took my DD to a summer kick-off at the mall. We were supposed to meet some friends there but they couldn't make it. Beee We still had fun, though.

The TWW sucks Tiffany! I had to have a nap after a whole day of doing nothing, couldn't even keep my eyes open by 1pm!!! The most ambitious thing I did all day? Made DH a ham sandwich....
However my bbs are less sore than they were, or at least my nips are better anyway. Temp is still up, even with taking it a bit early this morning, normally I take it between 6 and 7 but this morning I woke up at 4:50 and took it and it was just shy of what it was yesterday (I normally find if I take it earlier than normal it's a bit low).

No visible line yet though....so the TWW continues...

What is everyone doing for Father's day?

Crystal - your chart sure is looking good. I would be surprised if you didn't wind up with a BFP. Smile I thought you had already gotten a super faint line, though? :question: I thought I saw that on FB Hopefuls Group, but I must be mistaken.

My dad is in the hospital, was admitted from the assisted living home yesterday morning after he fell when getting out of bed and bumped his head. So we'll be wishing him a Happy Father's Day there when we go see him after church. For those who don't know, he is in the more advanced stages of Alzheimer's, so we won't be able to do a card or anything for him, because he probably wouldn't be able to read it or even focus long enough to hear it if we read it to him. Oh, and the reason they admitted him was because he also had a UTI and Sinusitis. He can't communicate too well, bless his heart, so he couldn't tell us when we went to visit him at the assisted living home that he was in any pain, or that he didn't feel well.

For my DH, my DD got him a card and a magnet while we were at the mall yesterday that we plan to give him at lunchtime. I'll be fixing him one of his favorite meals for dinner.

By the way, has anyone noticed how s-l-o-w it's been on the boards lately? That's pretty normal as summertime approaches, but it's been even slower than usual. My "Question of the Day" questions on my boards are going completely unanswered now, LOL. Plus I had a chat thread going on the Charting board and it's been completely dead for a few days. Maybe everyone went on vacation at the same time. Haha. The Chat thread on the TTC after a loss board is almost dead now, too, and that one is usually fairly active.

Beautiful day here today, though later it's going to be HOT. What's the weather like for you guys?

So sorry about your Dad Mary, hope he gets better soon. It's great that you'll get to see him today regardless. How does your DD react to her grandfather? When my grandfather was sick my DD was scared, but she always said he was 'the best Pappy ever' Smile

I DID see *something* on a test the other day but I'm going to chalk that up to an evap, it was so faint it didn't show on camera. If it HAD been a faint + I'd be getting a darker line by now I would think. I'll test again in a few days I think but not till after AF is due Wednesday now.

Thanks for the positive thoughts - sending some to you and your dad today!

Oh and as for the weather here? Sunny but not too hot, maybe high 70's low 80's. DD and I are having a 'girls day' since DH is in stupid training all day Sad We're going to lay on the deck with some books and get some sun!

Tiffany - sorry about your grandpa. Huge hugs!

My dad seemed to be doing a little bit better today, as better goes with Alzheimer's. He seemed to recognize me and smiled with his eyes and gave me a great big hug.

This morning I was majorly nauseated for awhile, then it went away thankfully. Probably because I had a midnight snack last night, LOL.

Hello Ladies Smile

We spent the weekend away and had a great time. DD and I made breakfast in bed this morning for DH and she made him a card.

I've been feeling a little weird/queasy today. I'm trying to convince myself that it's just sun exposure and dehydration but ... I really want to believe it's not. I never had nausea or MS with DD though and I'm only 5 or 6DPO so it probably is the sun Sad

Crystal I suck at charting Smile but yours is looking good ! I'm hoping for a BFP for you later this week.
