Yup Sad Day 46!
I went back through my chart and I had some very light spotting starting on the 24th of November, wasn't much but it did last for 4 days. If I use that as my LMP O would have been right around the time I was showing signs but didn't get a surge on an OPK (could have missed my surge, since I had stopped testing regularly) so AF would be due NOW, which means that BFN tests were done too early. Going to hold out another few days and test again.

FF threw some crosshairs on my chart today. I'm at 3dpo. Bracing myself for the craziness that enters me around 7 or 8dpo. That's usually when I start looking at pictures of other people's pee sticks as if to will a BFP into existence. Then around 9 or 10dpo, I break down and poas. Even though it's negative, I will examine it under different lights, with and without my glasses, and turned at different angles. I need serious help.

If I had a dollar for everytime I broke down and poas I'd have some serious cash lying around.... You are not alone!

Just to let everyone know how crazy I am, I actually peed on an opk this morning (6dpo) to see a faint second line which I knew, if it even showed, wouldn't be from hcg because it's too early for an that. I told my DH last night that I wish I knew if I would ever be pregnant again because if it's not in the cards I'd like to not get my hopes up every month. With low ovarian reserve I wonder if my DS was my only remaining good egg. My DH jokingly says that we don't need to have as many children as my sister (she has 5) because my only egg was "perfect."

Is there a 12 step program for poas addicts? lol I need to join! I don't know if you remember, the first month I started posting here, I started testing the day after I o'd. I tested every day, until AF showed. This month I'm hoping to hold out until at least 8dpo.
Your dh's "perfect egg" comment is so sweet. Smile I'm going to be stalking you this week Beth!

Even though 8dpo is early, it's at least realistic. I feel like we go back and forth between stalking each other in the tww.

My DH is pretty sweet. Today's our anniversary...glad I married him. Smile

Awww, New Years Day?! What an awesome day to get married. Happy Anniversary!!

I was trying to convince df that we should get married Feb 29th. I thought it would be cool to only have an anniversary every 4 years, lol.

We decided on New Year's Eve because it would have been a couple of years before we hit a Leap Year. Wink We thought if we ever want to go out and celebrate on our anniversary, there will always be plenty of events to choose from, too. Of course we never even make it to midnight, but just in case...

I'm entering the crazy poas phase...8dpo = BFN...not really a surprise.

9dpo = BFN. I'm glad I temp because I know that I'll see a temp jump if I'm pregnant. On my successful cycle my temp shot up the day I got my BFP. I was so excited to poas that morning (11dpo). I sat there and waited and waited...BFN. Didn't get a faint line until that evening and by then I was only re-checking because I was certain my last ditch cycle had failed and I wanted a drink.

I had a day off between teaching a winter break class and the start of our spring semester so my morning routine of logging in here didn't happen yesterday.

11dpo = BFN. My temp looks like it's starting the usual slow decline. Sad

Don't give up yet! I know you're familiar enough with your cycle to make a really good guess at what's going on, but you could be surprised!! Worst case scenario, you got another longer lp this month. Smile

I should be heading onto the 2ww this weekend. This would be the worst cycle of the year for me to get pregnant (other kids' bdays) but we're going for it anyhow.

Deirdre...How about a crystal ball that actually works? I don't have one, but it'd be nice, wouldn't it?

Tina...Maybe you could have another on 9/15?

AFM...12dpo = BFN; the good news is that my temp didn't drop today (went up

Aww Beth Ugh!! I'm right there with you though, and so far I've made it to like cd 9 or 10 without any spotting, so I'm feeling like if I can just make it til Sunday without AF I'll be pretty happy- even with a dumb BFN- that at least my LP was long enough to actually get pregnant!!!

Just curious. What is considered a good length for LP?

A minimum of 10 days is considered "normal," but over 12 is "good."

I just started the 2ww, not sure exactly how many dpo I am though, probably only 2dpo. I'm going to try to hold off as long as possible before testing though.

Yeah, I've been feeling pretty discouraged lately so I've just been lurking. I do check to see whats going on here daily though, I just don't have much to contribute since it was too busy over the holidays to temp or anything and I used up my last opk on the weekend. I'm definitely not board hopping right now, it's way too much of a bummer for me.

Tina - Haven't tested yet. I'm trying to hold out until at least Sunday. I should be 10 or 11 DPO. But if I can, I'm going to try my darndest to make it to next Thursday. There are a couple of other ladies on the Sept BB that are testing that day so I figure we'll make a party of it. But that's if i can hold out that long.....................................

Good Luck Amber!

I've been feeling that way, too (see FB group post). I hope you get back on a BB soon.

Anyone testing soon?

I'm only halfway through the 2ww, but I'm going to try really, really, REALLY hard not to test until next Tue or Wed, because AF will be late by then. I'm tired of all the extra disappointment early testing brings, so I am going to use every ounce of will power I have to wait.

Just wanted to say HI AMBER!
I know what you mean about the bb's... I think last night I just wanted to torture myself so I went and lurked in September and made myself feel bad about everyone else just goin along w/o me and still bein preg.. I think I might just try to lurk here for a while, or try to just not come on AT ALL... that always makes time go by so much faster!
