I woke up to nothing...no cramps, nothing...still waiting. LOL.

I hope the universe doesn't play a cruel trick again and make my cycle longer again. SO mean. On the plus side that sort of thing helps you realize you really do want to be pg. Smile

Thanks for the kind words Caitlin. After the struggles we had TTC dd it would be a bit of redemption to get it easily this time.

I totally agree!! It would be great for it to happen faster this time!! And it's great that you still have no sign of AF. When are you planning to test?

I've been having some nausea, but I could just have a little stomach bug or something. Sometimes I have random bouts of nausea so I'm not putting too much stock into it.

Everytime I think about caving and testing I remind myself of everything we had to go through to get DS and how unlikely it would be to get a BFP this quickly and easily. I will KUP though if I do cave and test!! Wink

Ok, so I'm REALLY REALLY trying not to obsess or get my hopes up... But I just went and looked at my past 4 cycles and I had an 11 day LP, 11 day LP, 7 day LP and 12 day LP. Today is 12 DPO and no sign of spotting or anything... Just saying... Before DS I had about a 16 day LP, so I just figured that it was the same now. I was pretty surprised to see how short it's been lately!!

But I'm still going to give it a few more days. You ladies know how it goes when you start ttc... Suddenly you have tons of symptoms and cycles get all wonky.

I'm definitely on TP watch the next few days!!

I'm just glad we're in it together!! I'm proud of us for being strong and holding out. I don't think I ever made it past 10dpo when we were ttc DS!

LOL! I used to test super early when TTC dd but I got so jaded. I never thought it was going to happen so I just stopped testing. LOL. My BFP with dd was on 14 dpo...which is today if I o'd when I guessed I did.

My issue with ttc this time is that last time we FINALLY got pg after an HSG. Now I know those clean you out...but it was 10 days later...so part of me wonders if it was because the chemical composition inside me was different. Know what I mean?

Oh, and I would have tested by now if I had my ICs. I gave all mine away after dd was born...I think. Perhaps I should rummage in all my TTC junk and see if I have JUST ONE MORE LEFT. LMAO. Probably not.

Well I caved and got a test at the store while I was there. Took it just now and it was bfn. I'm not discouraged though bc I know how unlikely it would be for us to get a BFP this easily. But just wanted to keep you guys posted. I'll wait for AF and if she hasn't shown by Saturday then I'll test again.

:sad11: I'm sorry girlie... Ya know, at least you're level-headed about it, knowing your past with TTC your adorable DS. Being realistic about opportunities and chances is the key to life.. You're a smart woman! :comfort:

Aweeeeee. I'm so sorry sweetie. Even when you logically know it probably won't happen it can still hurt seeing that BFN. Sad how many do are you?

I just checked the drawer. No tests. Sad Well the BFPs from dd are in there. What the heck? What do I do with those? Keep them forever? They kind of make me smile.

k k.

I had dinner, now I feel I'll. Sad

I'm 12 DPO. It's kind of a bummer to see the bfn but not a huge deal. This was just our first month JLIH and I'm still super nervous about the thought of having two LOs! So it's probably a good thing that we'll have to work a little harder for it.

Heather - bummer about not having any HPTs. I know what you mean about old BFPs. I threw mine away (but kept all the pics). But seeing the pics always brings a big smile to my face. It's tough making those decisions. I hope you have some new BFPs to add to it soon!! Smile

Ok so I think I O'd last Tues. I feel *funny*, kinda crampy, not quite nauseous but stomach feels unsettled (prolly just from terrible day at work yesterday, still anxious over that one), and I am feeling super moody. I had a terrible sleep last night as DS was in the bed with DH and I, and DS kept kicking me really hard (I told him he could no longer sleep in the bed with us, but this has been said before and I feel like pulling him into our room to sleep right now). So I am sitting here telling myself that POAS will not be a BFP as IT IS TOO EARLY! I really should just go to sleep and obsess about it tomorrow. Friday cannot come soon enough.

Oh man! That sucks. Sad You're only 9 dpo though right? That's quite early to test so you're still not totally out.

I feel better this morning. Sometimes my stomach reacts poorly to the food I eat. I made stir fry last night...and I guess my tummy didn't like something in it. Oh well, I feel better this morning.

OMG I have zero patience today! Either AF need to come or I need to be pg. I'm currently laying in bed while dh does dd's hair. I was at my wits end and couldn't deal with crazy toddler time any longer. Sad

LOL, I hear ya. It's sunny here but the morning is still gross in my mind.

For those of your with toddlers...how do you keep your patience? I need help. Her constantly asking me over and over and over and over and over to do the same thing, even AFTER I've told her I'll be right there, is making me insane.

I'm sorry you are having a rough day. I have days like that too...and when that happens I tell her to go watch cartoons or it is nap time. Sometimes momma just needs a break! I hope she settles down a bit for you!

Thanks, but luckily today was a daycare day, so I'm now 'at work' (I work from home) and she's at daycare. Daycare is closed 3 days this week so I have a 6 day stint with her. Sigh.

Crap, guys. I was just checking/googling the sensitivity of the FRER and found this article.

The Best Pregnancy Tests - CBS News

Now I know why my Answer tests sucked so much as an OPK. I bought the target cheapies and got my positives with those, but never got one with an Answer. I think I will do the target ones again next cycle.

As a side note, I have the leftover Answer tests still. I used one of those yesterday and got an almost + result. Hmm...

Heatherbella, when mine are driving me nuts I either put on My Little Pony, send them to play in their rooms, or take them outside. Usually a change of scenery helps.

Well that's positive! Test again tomorrow with FMU!!!!

So I'm crying again. WTF. I wish I had my ICs. If AF comes after all this emotional crap I'm going to be right pissed.

No good news here either...........

Had 1 pink tinged wipe yesterday and then today temp dropped. Totally mad, sad, pissed, and disappointed. My chart was gorgeous, I feel horrible, blah. Feeling like temping is pointless after this.

To top it off, today I woke up with sore throat, ears, etc.

Ok, so I didn't get my ICs in the mail today. I put on my big girl panties and went to the dollar store to buy a couple of their tests. Total budget. So I get there, hoping I don't see anyone I know. Then I remember my friend's cousin (who I know) works there. Crap. Well, hopefully she's not working. Guess what? She's doing inventory IN the HPT aisle. Awesome! She looked pretty 'into' her work so I snuck up, snatched two tests, and then booted it the other way. HA HA. I don't think she saw me. Just going to wait for pee then I'll test. Probably a BFN but whatever. I just need to know. After the crap-tastic day I've had, I can take more crap. LOL

Well, the results were blah. At first I thought bfn but then I saw a super faint line. I mean SUPER faint. Could be evap or because I only held in 1.5 hrs. I'll use the second test with fmu tomorrow.

Sorry you're still in limbo! And that you didn't get a blazingly obvious answer. I hope it's a true BFP and that your bean is just a little late snuggling in... Can't wait to see tomorrows test!!! Eeeee!!! Wink

I am so sick to my stomach this morning. It started last night. Blah. Not sure it means anything though. My temp was back up slightly. My chart also looks a little better now that I excluded the number I took after 2 hours of sleep.

Oooooohhhhh, that sounds promising!!!! Ok, feeling sick sucks, but not if it's for a good cause.

So I got a blazing white BFN this morning. Booooo! Still no AF though.

The thing I don't get is WHY are my cycles going so long? My average cycle length is 27. I've had a 32 but it's not normally that long. The cycles prior to TTC were: 27, 26, 25, 26, 28, 27, 28, 27, 22, 29. Seeeee? around 27. Last cycle was 30 days and it will be the same this cycle if I get AF today. What's the deal? Do you think maybe it's a chemical pg or something that makes my cycle longer. It's SO weird!!!
