    Current Cycle Day: CD23 (ETA 8DPO)

    POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: I can technically test tomorrow w/FRER but trying my hardest to hold out until at least the 14th. My cycles are averaging about 29 days.

    BD timing: Every day in my fertile window, O day and a couple days after for good measure.

    Thong, Bikini or Boyshort: Whatever is clean LOL

    @MrsPuddingface:  thanks for starting our part II thread with a fun poll!

    Current Cycle Day: CD19/5DPO

    POAS date/Usual Cycle Length:  10/14 club!  I’ll be testing early at 10 DPO.  AF is expected on 10/19

    Cycles trying:  Cycle 2

    BD timing:  -5, -3, -1.  If this cycle doesn’t work I might have to convince DH to BD every day during my fertile window.

    Thong, Bikini or Boyshort:  Briefs!  I’m a grandma underwear type of gal, and I don’t care who knows it 😉

    Question – does anyone know if night sweats can be a very early PG symptom?  Dr. Google says it’s a PG symptom for sure, but I’m wondering if it’s possible for that to happen before implantation.  I’ve had night sweats for the past 2 nights and I’m only 5 DPO.  The only time I’ve had that before is when I was on BCP.  

    Baby dust to all!

    @Macintosh:  It’s possible,even if you haven’t implanted yet you hormones could be a little crazy. Earlier this cycle I experienced hot flashes…. I really hope that means pregnancy and not early menopause haha.

    @SimplyChic11:  LOL Thats so funny that you said that because I posted on FB last night about being confused about why my eye brows are growing in blonde and red (I’m a brunette who’s always had black eye brows) and curly after 31 years and someone wrote that is was from hormone changes from getting older and I made a joke about peri menopause. I then made the mistake of Googling peri menopause and I have all the symptoms! I know I’m too young but damn you interwebs!! LOL

    @MrsHovzilla:  haha.. oh how sad! D: Damn you interwebs!!!!! I swear my husband could look up symptoms based on a toothache and the interwebs would say he is pregnant. 😉 The proof is in the period/blood test though, or so I tell myself the longer the wait goes on. 

    A somewhat interesting fact- in doing more research on when the best time to POAS is,  a lot of medical sites said that technically you can’t test PG until after implantation. From what I understand, PG will usually show up in blood work 2-3 days after implantation, on an at-home test 3-4 days after this! D: Figuring this out and calculating implantation can take over a week- it’s very possible not to test pregnant until about a week after your missed period. I’m really anxious I may not test positive even if I am pregnant come Friday/Saturday. If I experienced true implantation bleeding yesterday it may not show up for days and days yet! 

    On another note I’ve hidden my pregnancy tests until the weekend and have hid my wall calendar- which is useless because I calculate my CD in my head every morning. 😛 

     

    Edit: going by symptoms: I do think we’re in for a LOT of BFPs this weekend! 😀 I’m beyond excited to see some positive pregnancy tests.

    @SimplyChic11:  I read that about implantation, too – that pg won’t show up on a home test until 5-7 days after implantation, and that bleeding takes place at the end of implantation.  That’s what is keeping me sane right now with my BFN. What I think was implantation bleeding started Sunday and is still going today (it’s like 1 spot a day), so at the earliest, I would test positive on Friday, which is when I’m supposed to get my period, and I might not test positive until a few days later.  Ah, more waiting…

    @hardtoconcentrate:  Do you know how long implantation takes? That’s one thing I didn’t read. I always thought it was fast, but maybe I’m wrong.
