Leah- Dont worry, I tested ummm 11 days ago?? and I STILL have ccramps.. and feel super full and heavy.. ick!! But its worth it right??
Michelle- so weird about the tests- maybe that'd be the place to open up a daycare in a couple years- must be a lot of people gettin preg- hopefully somethings in the water so you get a BFP too!!

Cait have you had any sharp cramps? Occasionally I'll get a sharper one on the right side. It's always on the right side. I had some bad ones a few days ago and I bet that's when I implanted. I wouldn't say the cramps hurt though. More like light pressure and it's kind of everywhere except for an occasional one that's a little more distinct. My mom says that's normal. She's funny though. She knew she was pregnant because she was falling asleep sitting up when she was only 3-4 weeks pregnant. Lol.

Let's do it. I am not very hopeful but I did look at a lot of FF charts where preggos got a - at 10d and then + at 13. It makes a wee tiny bit optimistic, but only a wee. Smile ((((hugs))))

*edit TEMP JUMP for you! Yea! That made me smile at least.

Kim, I feel like it too, and not b/c of the BFN, although that helps. Lol. I *seriously* had preggo type symptoms but last night/today..... so far nothing now. I think, maybe it was all in my head. Or maybe I just wasn't feeling well. Who knows, but it sucks.
I can't wait too see some more BFPs this month to cheer me up!! Come on :babydustpink: Work your magic!!

I am debating testing again tomorrow or just waiting it out.

Mine said November, Cait. Maybe I have a loooong way to go. Heh heh. Here I was thinking Nov due date. Oh well.

Kim, my giant stash of tests is my issue with waiting. I'd love to but *they* won't let me.

So my friends DH found my test in the trash and called his wife freaking out that she is taking pg tests (they just had twins in November). He sent her the pics below swearing he sees a very light line. She quickly told him that it wasn't hers and don't have a heart attack. I don't see it at all.... like zippo.

Eeek Kim I think I might see a light something too! I agree hun, hold your pee and test! Oh I so hope this is it for you! It is still early so maybe it's just light. Fingers crossed!

Marie it's still early sweetie. I've heard of so many people getting their BFPs after a complete negative the day before. I believe it's still possible for sure. You're not out until AF shows. Fingers crossed for you sweetie!

Hahaha! I agree, Beth. WAKE UP KIM! LOL Is it bad I was stalking her temps already this morning?

For me, I think the blasted witch is getting close to visit. :crybaby: Hubby's pretty disappointed too..... D@mn you BFNs! I don't think I'll test again until it's clear I've missed AF. Which I doubt will happen.

Temp dropped - didn't even bother to test. Why does TTC have to be hard?

I was bleeding last month at this temp. Think that means AF will come early?

Kim, big giant hugs! Sad I'm sad we were both unlucky this month. I was so optimistic. I don't even know when my AF will start. When does yours usually start? I'm glad at least ONE of our trifecta was lucky. Biggrin

Hugs Marie! I honestly won't even mention my stupid score that the pregnancy analyzer has me at. Grrrrrrrr. I really don't know what else I can do to "make" it happen.

I have been having 30 day cycles ... So I figure I have 3 more but with that temp drop, I am pretty confused.

My darn phone won't let paste from photobucket. As soon as company leaves I will, but honestly it seems like if there was something ... It should be getting darker

Awww Marie I'm so sorry. Has AF started or did you just get another BFN? It's not over until the evil witch shows. I know someone on here before didn't get their BFP until they were 18DPO. So if no AF there's still a chance. I still have hope. Smile

Kim. Eeeeekkk! Has company left yet? I need to see this pic! I've heard of a lot of people say that there's don't get darker for a few days sometimes. Maybe it's like Belinda said and your temp today was just an implantation dip and it'll go back up tomorrow. Fingers crossed!

Leah, after last month I just *know* the dif between my normal AF cramps and pregnancy. This *feels* just like AF; slowly sneaking up, ya know? And when I just checked my CP it is now low and opening. I'm sure tomorrow will be CD1. I feel a lot better tonight then I did earlier. Dec's another month! Biggrin
I LOVE Gatlinburg! It's one of my favorite places and where we took DS1 on his first out of state vacay. And you just took your LO on his/her first vacay too. Wink heh heh. Yay for that pregnancy test!

Aww Marie. I'm sorry stupid AF is coming but I'm glad that you're feeling better about it. I always felt better when CD1 was almost there and I knew the dreaded wait was over. After this I don't think I'll ever forget what it's like to be pregnant. I'm sleeping in a special made sports bra for runners tonight with super duper support. I can't stand for nothing to old up my BBs. I could barely life up my arm to shave my armpit. I also think I may have fallen asleep in the shower and possibly for a second while typing this. Lol. I've never felt anything like this before. It's so different so I completely understand what you mean. I'll be keeping my fingers crossed that your sweet little sticky bean will be here very soon. Big HUGS!

Also yes Gatlinburg is great! DH gets tired of it because he grew up so close that it's too touristy for him but I still love it. We live about 2 hours away so it's a good day trip for us. We also went there for our anniversary this year. I kept telling DH "This is our first outing as expectant parents" :). Also I did the thing where you calculate how far along you are and it looks like I'm around 4 weeks 3 days. I'm hoping that means they might be able to see something on an ultrasound soon.

Deirdre- I just did a search for due in October blinkies. I think mine came from photobucket Smile

Marie- Just saw your chart. {{{HUGS}}} So sorry sweetie!

Kim- Can't wait for the pic!!!

Leah- We're about 2 hours from Gatlinburg as well! We lived in Lexington VA for a couple of years while DH was in the military. Now we're in TN. I bet we are really close to each other!

Sorry about your cycle ending, Marie. Sad

Kim, any more news?

Pam, where are you? I think you were a day ahead of me last time I checked. Haven't seen you around though!

Karen, ???

Michelle, are you getting settled into another cycle? Are you feeling better about moving forward?

Belinda, Leah, and Cait...looking forward to following all of you on your journeys. Smile

Thanks ladies. I was 'prepared' for AF last night and was sure it started this morning while temping. BAD cramps! But noooo, that witch is dragging her feet. If only she'd get her butt in gear, I'll have a 2nd shot at Nov. Finding that out made my day a little.

Belinda, how's little Candy Corn? Any morning sickness yet?

Beth, how are you feeling about this month? Sending lots of :::babydust::: to you! Smile

Belinda - thanks for the blinkie info Smile

Good Luck everyone still waiting to test!!!!

Well, if AF is coming...hurry up! Nice to have cycles that are short enough to give you two shots at Nov! Smile

How am I feeling? To be honest I really have a hard time convincing myself that I am capable of getting pregnant naturally since that has never happened. We drove to Des Moines yesterday to visit my DH's family and go to a kids' party (Erin...I was thinking about you!). We live almost 2 hours from there, but our RE's office is there. We talked about making an appointment with the RE again if I'm not pregnant by May because we'd like to at least try some injectable IUI cycles late summer/early fall. Not sure how much testing we'll have to go through again, but would like to get the ball rolling sooner rather than later. I'll be 39 in Aug. Still not feeling like we would go through IVF cycles again, but we're willing to try injectable IUIs again. Those are emotionally easier on me. At this point, I feel like I'm just here to cheer everyone else on and celebrate others' BFPs. I have one blessing and I hope we add another, but if not, I at least like sharing the excitement of seeing my virtual friends experience pg. Smile

Beth you're stil BF'ing right? Maybe when you ween you can get back to the RE and see what they can do though I certainly hope you can get pregnant naturally this time around. It's just so hard on your body when you can't and I'm keeping fingers crossed that you'll get your miracle very soon!

Beth - Yeah, I am settled into another cycle and feeling much better about it. AF can just bring out the worst in me some times. I will be getting more answers this cycle, so I am just focusing on that.

Beth, I'm here--just busy. I worked 3-10 Friday night, 745AM-8PM Saturday, and have been running around at a birthday party and errands today. Plus, I have nothing going on to talk about since I just feel like I'm never going to get pregnant and can't really get into the birth boards anymore :(. This is the third Clomid cycle, and I think I'm going off it for the next couple cycles to see if my body has regulated itself. I don't think it'll do any more good after 3 cycles anyway.
I have sore boobs this month, which isn't something I normally have but I know it doesn't mean anything--my temps aren't very high at all so I don't think progesterone level is that high either. I really want a baby but I feel defeated and wish there was a way we could do IVF. I definitely had a positive pregnancy test a year ago, but I am seriously thinking it was a false positive now rather than a CP and my tubes are blocked (as I had a high likelihood of that being the case after all of my abdominal surgeries due to Crohns Disease). SadSad

Pam, I understand where you're coming from. Any chance you can at least have an HSG done to check your tubes? Even if you don't have infertility coverage, they can sometimes get an HSG done on suspicion of endo and have medical cover it. I didn't realize you had Crohns. :bigarmhug:

I don't think I can get that done at this point. They even denied the blood work I had done to test hormone levels and the office visit to go over the results, even though having abnormal cycles is a medical concern too

I'd be upset if I was told that I couldn't have medical issues that are not IF related taken care of.
