Alrighty, so who is waiting around in the second half? Do your try your best to resist POAS until a certain DPO or do you hold out for AF?

I try to resist and generally fail. Wink This cycle I'll have family around when I'd usually test, so I'll be waiting longer.

I'm a party pooper no testing here until af doesn,t show. Last time i was so super regular i tested the day af didn't appear, this time there are some slight variations in days. I am not holding much hope though, last time around 4 or 5 dpo i was so hungry nothing could fill me up, i am at the same point now and no feeling like that. it may have just been a coincidence last time though. I am getting some weird aches in my stomach area so it could be something, but again maybe it's nothing. Only time will tell. Hubby has predicted yet, just that when we do conceive it will be a girl

I've been trying to hold out the past few cycles, but I always break down and test. I'm sure the same will happen this time. POAS helps the time go by...or wait does it just make it feel like eternity seeing a bfn?

Hmmm maybe i am ruling myself out early 4dpo today ( i think ff hasn't given crosshairs, but i got a pos opk about 4 days ago) and i was pretty hungry today. If it happens with the super ravenous tomorrow it will be hard because i am in court all day

I'm in the TWW now. Where is everyone else? Board hopping I assume. I might just break down and board hop, it gets lonely over here. Wendy are you board hopping too?

I can't believe how late I ovulated this cycle compared to last. This explains why JLIH was not working for me. I think this cycle is just a weird one too. Either that or I'm just way more in tune with my body than I ever was. Ovulation cramps hurt so much this month that I almost felt sick. Plus its only 2dpo or 3dpo (I think) and I'm so freaking hot. I'm having hot flashes. I do usually feel warmer, but that usually happens much closer to my period.

Anyways, not much else going on. Trying to study for my arch exams so I can avoid symptom obsessing. Going on a walk later when it cools down.

I'm not board hopping. I peek in on March but not fully joining anywhere until i get a bfp. I have my Oct 2010 board to keep me company in the meantime as well thoug, so that probably helps with the no board hopping

I'm pretty sure AF is going to show tomorrow, started to spot earlier today. I was pretty hopeful about this cycle until a few days ago, but I have a feeling that this just isn't it.

This is a huge bummer, because we were really hoping to tell people at our wedding that we're pregnant, and it definitely won't happen now. This stuff happens for a reason though, I guess. I've decided that if we don't get a BFP before the beginning of September, I'm asking my family doctor to send FH in for a semen analysis. I want to know what we're dealing with.

Aww I'm sorry you are down, but its not over yet. Plus its only your 2nd cycle of trying. I think its great that you're being proactive about it though.

Sorry it seems like af might show, hopefully the spotting doesn't turn into anything and you get a bfp.

Seriously i better get a bfp or else i will the size of a whale, i am starvung constantly. If i am pregant it is very different to ds's pregancy after a day or two of constant hunger i wasn,t too hungry for the next twenty weeks. I considered going to hubbys work for thei buffet dinner tonight just to eat a lot. Instead i am staying home with home made minestrone and sweet chilli and cheese bread

Sad Jessica - I'm so sorry to see your chart. I was really optimistic for you this cycle too. Your chart was looking SO nice for a while there.

Wendy - What cycle day are you? Are you going to test? I remember being ravenously hungry when I was pg.

Elizabeth - Your chart looks good!! Yay for solid crosshairs! The line looks like the lochness monster, LOL! I know it was only our second cycle, but this was a big one for us, kind of a make it or break it one since there was a lot more riding on it. I hope that the reduced pressure helps us out, because my LP is still short, the B6 didn't make it lengthen at all.

Wendy - Your chili sounds amazing! Can I come for dinner!? Minnestrone is my favorite soup ever, mmmmm

Heather - thanks! I'm still going to stalk the March board, I don't think too much is going on over in April right now.

Wishing the rest of you ladies all sorts of luck and baby dust for the remainder of your TWW!!

I'm 9 dpo, so technically i could test tomorrow, but i don,t test until af is late so will wait until next week if af doesn't show. Along with being constantly hungry i have lost a kilo, for the amount of food i have been putting away that should not be possible.

Ha! My chart does look like a lochness monster. Sorry I didn't mean to come off as insensitive about it being your 2nd cycle. I just want you to stay positive, because it could happen very soon! I'm sorry it didn't happen this month. Hugs!

Looks like my LP is also short this month, 10 days. Last month it was 14 days. I wonder why it changed so drastically.

Wendy-Sounds like some symptoms. I can't wait for you to test.

I am so tempted to test early but going to hold out, i still don't feel confident this cycle but this hunger is unusual, i haven't been starving like this since i was in the early months of breastfeeding. I also got uoset at work on Friday, similar to how i was after i went back after ds, so who knows. Just under a week until testing if af doesn't show

6dpo here and time is starting to creep by again. So my bbs are getting more painful and today I had watery cm and my cervix seems softer than it usually is around this time. I have backaches on my lower left side, which I never get, although I'm a little worried that its kidney/uti related again. I'm trying to keep temping, its been hard this week as I've had some super early work meetings and I'm not taking my temps at the same time.

I know it may not happen, but I'm taking the approach of "power of positive thinking" and seeing where it gets me.

Wendy you are killing me over here by not testing, lol.

Heather are you in the 2ww yet?

Wendy, any news?

My temps have been down for 3 days now. Not sure if that means anything, since they are still above the coverline. Trying to stay positive, but I wish time would speed up already.

Nope not tested yet, i held no hope yesterday as i had some pink tinged cm, and today was one of the two days ff predicted for the start of af but nothing yet, i'll see what happens today and decide when i will test from there. i hate wasting tests

No need for me to waste a test, looks like the early stages of af are showing. I had a good feeling I wasn't pregnant this month, i was hoping because I hate the whole ttc part, hubby gets home so late so it makes me more exhausted than i usually am with the little non sleeper in the house
