TTC Baby #1

Hello all, I'm Jenn and my husband and I are TTC baby #1! We got married in September last year and are in the process of buying our first home! We are really excited!!
I quit taking BCP right after the wedding, so October was my first month of being pill free! YAY! It has been nice to not have to remember taking it every day!
We started TTC in January 07 so send babydust my way!!! Smile
I'm am doing the following...
BBT
OPK

CD17

4 DPO
I've been having some cramping feelings like AF is coming. I had major bloating and gassy feelings this morning. Here's a quick update for the past week...

CD 8 - BD
CD 9 - nothing
CD 10 - OPK-
CD 11 - BD, OPK-
CD 12 - OPK-, BBT 97.6
CD 13 - OPK-, EWCM, BBT 97.5
CD 14 - BD, OPK+ (not a solid line but very close)
CD 15 - OPK+ (line darker than concept but not completely solid), BBT 97.9
CD 16 - OPK-, BBT 97.5
CD 17 - BBT 97.9, haven't checked OPK today yet

So it looks like we may have caught that egg....I surely hope so!

5 DPO - CD18

I was driving to work this morning and was having mild AF cramps...they didn't go away completely yet. I feel like I am about to start any minute but i'm only at CD18 and I usually start like CD27-28. I think my mind is playing tricks on me...making me think things are happening because I'm pregnant. I am just hoping and hoping and hoping!!!! Not sure how soon you get cramping from implantation though. :?

BBT today was 97.9

5 DPO

Ok so I can't count...today is 5 DPO. hehe!

BBT today was 98.0

What does it mean if it goes up again?? It was a steady 97.9 there for a while...maybe it's just a fluke.

Don't really have cramps today...but I am tired. I didn't sleep too well.

I get a free lunch at work today for the February Birthdays. YAHOO!! Biggrin

K the 2WW is the LONGEST ever!!!!!

BBT today was 98.0 again, still not other symptoms. I did wake up last night once with some strange stomach pains...around my belly button area...i'm sure it was just gas or something haha! But I can't help but hope!

I didn't sleep well...woke up a lot. I hate being a light sleeper sometimes! So I am pretty tired today, but at least its FRIDAY!!! YAHOO!

3 more weeks and we can move into our new house. I can't wait!

9 DPO

Ok so I realllllly wanna test today!!! But I won't...I am only 9 DPO thats too early right? Can I test on 10 DPO? The tests I have say 5 days before missed period...so 10 DPO is ok right? Can someone respond in the comments board about that??

My BBT yesterday was 98.3 and today 98.1 again. I had slight cramps yesterday off an on. And I've been emotional...crying WAY too easy lately! I'm sure part of it is the stress from buying our first home and having to pack and realizing that I will be moving away really soon. It's starting to set in!!!

Oh well....hope you all have a happy monday!!! Biggrin

10 DPO

Ok...10 DPO...I really want to test!!! I am going to try to wait until Friday though.
Since I'm just starting out with charting and stuff I was looking at the day I had the EWCM last month and the day OPK said + it was like 2 days... so if its the same this month then I may not have caught it? I had EWCM on Friday then OPK + on saturday and sunday...we only BD on Saturday morning.... I hope I hope I hope it worked!!!!

I'm just thinking about it way too much now. I wish it was Friday so I could know!!! I do have cramps today again...I also did yesterday too. Could be AF?? UGH! Go away AF!!! GO AWAY!

BBT today was 98.2

temp dip

Hello! Happy Hump Day! (Wednesday for those of you that haven't heard of hump day before Wink )

I woke up today with my temp at 98 it's starting to drop which makes me think that AF is on her way!!! It's still above coverline but its dropping none the less! It dropped yesterday too. :cry:

I went and picked up some HPT from the dollar store yesterday at lunch and my cousin-in-law and my friend both convinced me to take one at work! LOL now that was a task! I had to sneak in a test AND a cup to the restroom! Sure glad no one saw me! :?

The results were Neg as I was assuming but it didn't hurt to check anyways!! FF says I am 9 DPO but I believe I O'd earlier than it says...so I'm going with 11 DPO...

We are signing our papers tonight for the new house! Can't wait!!!!!

Ok I guess that is all for now!! Take care lovely ladies!!

CD 2...starting over...

Well Saturday I felt super sick at the store, I thought I was going to vomit...so I thought OMG I might be prego!!! But then I woke up yesterday with my BBT dropping to 97.9 and AF showed up! UGHHHH!!! The sick feeling must have come from the Chai tea I had in the AM without any breakfast or something. Darn it!!

So we're starting over now....but I think I have figured out my O date for sure with FF so I'm excited to try this month!!! YAHOO!!!!

Have a great Monday ladies!
