My temps are dropping nicely. They had started out this cycle being very high. I am wondering if that is a result of remaining progesterone- perhaps another sign to confirm a chemical pregnancy.
I really hope that I O. Maybe I'll see some signs soon and I'll O before cd21 (when my next round of blood tests are).
guess what? I got PEAK this morning! It was totaly unexpected! Hopefully it means that I will O tomorrow. I am so flipping excited! I am still in the running for a June baby!
I'm gonna go find DH!
another Peak this morning.......but I also saw a temp spike, so I think I O'd!
I did have two glasses of wine last night.....I know that could mess up my temps.....but could it cause a .8 degree shift? That seems too high.
So, in two days or so, I wil have my O confirmed (or not)....but we covered our bases nicely.
on to another 2WW......
I'm calling it! I O'd! I'll get my crosshairs tomorrow, but my temp sent up even more this am, to 97.8. Thats a solid post-O temp for me. woo-hoo!!!!!
on to another 2WW.
I had my cd21 blood work yesterday. I know that I O'd, but if I do not see a BFP this cycle, then my Doc likes to see my progesterone level to adjust my clomid. ofcourse, I O'd a full week later this cycle so I don't expect to see the high number that I saw last cycle (which was 45). My Doc is in surgury today, so I don't expect a phone call from the Doc until tomorrow.But its ok. I am not expecting anything. I KNOW that I O'd. and it is too early to detect pregnancy, even if I am pregnant, so......
Last cycle was so weird. I am feeling very "ofcourse I'm not pregnant" and "why bother testing"....so I don't know when to start testing. I figure in another few days I'll start to get anxious. I'll probably test on 10dpo (the day I got a BFP with DD) and then 12dpo, 14dpo and so on, until I get AF or BFP.
Its just hard b/c I had so many symptoms last cycle and in the end, I wasn't pregnant, or it was a chemical pregnancy. I don't know if I can trust my 'symptoms' or not. I'm just going to try not to obsess too much.
in other news: my business deal has fallen through. Good thing I figured out that my potential partner was a flake BEFORE we started our firm....oh well. Now I can just concentrate on getting pregnant.
Temps still look good, although I don't hold much weight in charting anymore, at least not as a proof of pregnancy. My chart was Perfect last cycle.
I am having weird cramps in my lower stomach and lower back today. Like a throbbing, dull, pain. Not sure what that is.
I am still not too anxious to test yet. I think that once I do POAS, I will want to POAS all the time, so I may try to hold of until 12dpo to start. My last 'normal' period was a 12 day LP. Ofcourse, I saw 21 days last cycle......so I'm not sure if any of that mean anything.
I am feeling very 'meh' about the whole thing. and I think that that is some sort of protective instinct, to avoid diappointment and heartache again. All I know is that I am still heart sick over last cycle and I need to be careful with my emotions this time.
Chart still looks great.
So I saw my Doc today at a kickboxing class at the gym that we both belong to. I asked her opinion on working out during the 2WW. She said it was fine, but not to do anything too, too high impact or jarring. (ofcourse, she told me that right after a really really tough kickboxing class...ooopps). I hope I didn't unstick any potential beans in there!
She also said that my numbers for my PL looked really good...'like a 25' and that when she saw that number she thought "this might be the cycle". I'm not sure about that. I had a 45 last cycle (but I was 12dpo) and this time, my b/w was at only 4dpo....so I guess maybe a 25 is pretty good.
I am still having that weird crampy, tingleing in my lower stomach. Not sure what that is. Its been almost constant for three days now.
I have not tested yet. I am very proud of myself. It will get harder and harder NOT to POAS, but I'd like to wait at least one more day, and test on 12dpo. (the last regular cycle I had, I had a 12day LP). so- we'll see.
All of my patience went down the toilet (so to speak...)
I POAS this morning. 11dpo
and got a BFP!!!!!!!
Its faint but its definetly there. I used the equate "+/-" brand. The line came up within a minute or two and its pink.
I am so nervous that it is a mistake, an evap, or a bad test. I'll keep testing every day now to see if the line gets darker. I am scared that its wrong. I don't 'feel' pregnant and I'm having trouble wrapping my head around the idea.
none- really, none.
except that I have had cramping since 8dpo. Like a weird, heavy, tickelish feeling.
I have taken three more tests and they all came up BFP.
Yesterday, I took a FRER and a Fact + without FMU and got 2nd lines.
This morning I took a FRER with FMU and got another BFP.
I am starting to believe that I may actually be pregnant! The line though, is still so faint. I won't feel better until I see that it starts to get darker. I'm going to hang out here until I am more comfortable with the whole idea, OK?
I do actually have symptoms now though. I have bad gas/burping and a little nauseus here and there.
Got a BFP with a digital this morning with FMU.
I gotta say....seeing "pregnant" was amazing! Its the first time I've gotten a BFP with one.
So, its starting to sink in that I am in fact, pregnant.
I have so enjoyed being a part of this community. Thank you for saving my sanity during the hard times and sharing my bliss during the good times.
I hope everybody gets their BFPs soon!
