    So, DH and I were successful with the BD'ing on the day I should have O'd, so now I'm waiting on whether or not AF is gonna rear her ugly head. I am 2 days from starting AF (according to my cycle length before m/c and D&C) and have not noted any of my usual telltale signs of spotting yet. I have planned to take an HPT this coming Wednesday, provided AF doesn't show before then. I do feel like maybe I am pregnant; like that instinct only a woman has about her body. Like the first 2 times I got pregnant, I just knew. I kinda feel like that now and hope I'm just not playing tricks on myself.
