MEEE!! *raises hand*

I am 2 DPO and trying (TRYING!!!) not to obsess! It helps that it took us so long ttc last time. I know that despite our good timing this month, chances are slim that we'll get a BFP on our own, much less the first cycle we aren't preventing. But I'm still hopeful and trying to stay busy!

Heather - when did you O? How was your timing?

:teethchatter: Meeeee!! I'm currently on CD 19 - 6 DPO - so the wait is on! :clappy:

And I freely admit that even knowing it's ridiculously early and I'd get a BFN, I totally took a HPT just cuz I wanted to. Lol

ME!!! I am pretty sure that I O'd yesterday! Which, of course, would put me at 1 DPO (even though FF hasn't confirmed it yet)! I am hoping that this months TWW won't be so stressful. We leave for vacation on Sunday. So, I am hoping that I will be so busy that I won't have time to obsess over whether or not I am pregnant!

Wooo hooo! I'm not alone.

I have no idea when I O'd. Not charting or OPK'ing. My EWCM tapered off after CD15 (which is my average O date) so I just did an override on FF. It says I'm 4 dpo. I could have sworn it has been longer. LMAO.

Caitlin - I hear ya. It took us 15 cycles with dd, so although I hope this time is different, I'm trying to not get my hopes up.

Adriana - LOL, you're too cute (about the hpt). How long have you been trying for?

Noelle - Ooooh, a vacation will make the TWW go faster. Where are you going?

Me, me, me. Late, but I am so glad to finally be here. And I am still feeling positive about the possibility this month!

It will be fun to obsess with you ladies since I refuse to mention anything to DH at this point.

I'm technically always waiting because I don't know where I am in my cycle, but I took a test this morning and it was negative. However, my breasts feel like I'm in early pregnancy, the veins are becoming more pronounced, and my nipples are getting darker and bigger. I wonder how long I'll have to wait before getting AF or a BFP!

OH my word! I'm very envious of you! That sounds amazing. We went to Cozumel on our honeymoon cruise. We rented a jeep and drove ourselves around. It was hubby's favorite day on the cruise. He likes to drive and be in control. Smile

Oooooh, that all sounds super positive! Do you normally get that with PMS? Oh wait, I think I remember you saying you haven't had a period in a LONG time (and I hate you for that btw. Blum 3 ). I think you need to test soon!!!!

I don't remember having those symptoms with PMS, but do remember having them with pregnancy. I guess time will tell!

It's exciting to see more ladies joining us over here in the 2WW. I'm so excited for all of you and can't wait to see the BFPs start rolling in!! When does everyone plan to test??

Afm - I'm not going to test unless I'm pretty sure I'm pregnant. Last time we were ttc I always tested early. Right now I have one test that I got with some OPKs and I'm holding out on using it until I'm late. I'll just have to obsess over the rest of you Wink

I'm with you on that one. I had a LOT of very early testing when I was TTC DD. Ok, actually, I normally waited until 10 dpo at LEAST...but that's still pretty early. I don't have any pg tests in the house so that will help me not test. Blum 3

I tested yesterday and it was negative. I'm going to try to wait until next weekend. It is hard not knowing when I'm likely to get a positive!

And I broke down and tested today... with only an hour hold SMU. It was a BFN (I didn't think it would be anything else this early.)

Ladies, please :help1: I cannot start getting all obsessed with several more days to go.

I tested again this morning another BFN! Honestly my boobs are so sore that I should have had AF days ago. I'm also feeling cramping like early pregnancy or PMS. I need to step away from the tests...

LOL, ya, 3dpo is a wee bit early. I bet in 50 years or so they'll have a test that works that early. Blum 3

Well boo boo boo! That really sucks. Sad I hope you're just not showing on the tests yet. *fingers crossed*

AFM - I thought about going to the dollar store today and buying some HPTs but all your testing has me thinking twice. Maybe I'll order some online instead. LOL. I don't REALLY want to go into the dollar store and buy 50 HPTs. I'd look CRAZY.

Ok, done. I ordered 30 from Save On Tests. I used them when I was TTC DD. I didn't get OPKs though...trying not to be freaky. Trying SO HARD. LOL

Jessica-thanks for the above chart comment. I am keeping everything crossed.

Heather- hey now, I am an OPK hoarder. Does that mean you think I am freaky?;-)

HA HA HA, no, not necessarily. We TTC for 15 cycles to get DD and things got a bit desperate for a while there. I didn't use OPKs a whole lot, only a bit...but I temped for over 1.5 years. Wow, right? I tried everything from cough syrup to fertility vitamins to pre-seed. I'm sure there is more, but I'm trying to not think too much about all that. Must. Stay. Grounded. LOL!!!!

So my HPTs shipped today! Yay! They are super close so hopefully I get them by Friday.

I am pretty sure I O'd last night, lots of right sided pain, plus the EWCM, and high cervix, bloating and what not, we DTD sunday, and today... so I am not really expecting it to happen this month, but we will see.

I've never really paid much attention to the side pain that you speak of. I can get some bad gas so I normally just think it's that. LOL. The last two cycles I noticed left side pain around O time. Not sure if that means anything...aren't your ovaries supposed to alternate? I definitely could tell when my cervix was low though...ouchies. LOL

Well, after having the IUD for five years, and having tons of stomach pains all the time, these past couple weeks there has been no pain what so ever, which has been fantastic, so I def. noticed the pain going on... or I could be crazy, either way, either that was O or I shall O really really soon. I am still not so sure that I will get pg this month, with our work schedules being opposite DTD time is pretty limited, and if DH keeps getting to bed so late its not going to happen... but I stop work at the end of the month (woot!) and the schedules wont matter near as much...

So really I am just trying to convince myself that even if I get a BFN I don't need to be sad, even though I still will be...

Heather- woohoo for ordering tests.

Sandi- I have been asleep by 830 pm every night for over a week now and dozing off during dinner

Mary- I wish you luck this month!

Same here!! I can't wait to see the BFPs start rolling in!! I'm 9 DPO today but AF isn't due for a week still. If she doesn't show by next Saturday then I may test. I'm trying so hard not to get my hopes up about anything!!! Smile

Oh and I think my DH knows something is up. He said to me this morning that maybe I am pregnant and it would explain my crankiness and the fact that I literally waked in the door last night, had a little dinner, showered and went right to bed...

Well that sounds like a great sign. I know I was dead tired for my first trimester.

I'm 11 dpo today. Not feeling much other than being more emotional than usual...but that might be just the normal hormones getting me. Also, DD is really growing up too fast these days and that's making me sad. I need to get pg so I have all the baby stuff to look forward to again (along with the big girl stuff).

I hope my HPTs arrive today or tomorrow by mail. FF forecasts AF for Sunday...so we'll see.

Soooo hard!! With DS, I KNEW I was pregnant before my BFP bc my ovary was sore from the corpus luteum cyst. It was my first true symptom. Last night my right ovary started hurting and it was sore today! So now I'm really having a hard time keeping the obsession at bay. I just keep telling myself how totally unlikely it is that we could get pregnant our first month JLIH after everything we went through to get DS.

Ooooh, that is very positive! I've heard of people getting pg easier the second time...but I guess that depends on what the fertility issues were the first time, right? Ooooh, I have everything crossed for you!

I have been having some pains on my left side too lately. That's the side I felt things on around O time. I guess time will tell for me. I normally just blame it on gas but we'll see....

Yeah, I usually don't break out with PMS until the day before I start. I've also had almost constant light cramps the past few days. Probably all psychosomatic.

I hope that's a good sign! I had some the other day too. I got pretty bad implantation cramps with DD but it was later. Maybe it was something else but it friggin' hurt.

I agree with everyone else and am so excited to hear about so many promising symptoms!! I can't wait to see some more BFPs rolling in.

I'm 11dpo today and ALMOST caved and tested. I'm really trying to hold out though!

GL to everyone who will be testing soon!!
