@littlebee3:  I’d do four hour hold (don’t drink too much that day) or wait until Saturday morning. You SO don’t want to miss having him there so you can freak out and celebrate with him however you want, and he might be disappointed if he misses it. 

At 14 DPO, with a 4HH, I feel like you’d see a second line with a good brand of test. I’m excited for you!

@littlebee3:  I vote for #4. At this point you should get your BFP even if you test in the evening. Just make sure to not go overboard with water/fluids in the afternoon.

Finding out Saturday will be torture, I guarantee it. You won’t be able to stop smiling if you get that BFP and yet you will be going from one activity to the next without time to digest. I found out Thanksgiving morning and DH and I had to spend the whole day surrounded by family pretending that everything was normal. We didn’t really get a chance to discuss and digest until the next day. It was BRUTAL.

I can’t wait for the Dec POAS Derby (otherwise known as Dec 10!)

I’ll be in Mexico, excited to see all the BFPs I will come back to!

i never heard of the countdown to pregnancy so i decided to check it out.

every sympton has an opposing one. 

increased appetite – decreased appetite

acne breakout – decreased acne

high energy – fatigue/exhaustion

increased saliva – dry mouth

etc.

so really everything can be and can’t be.

it just made me laugh.

@Miss_Magoo82:  I know! I am one of the Dec 10th POASers and I was just looking at the list – with 7 of us, statistics would suggest that at least one of us should get a BFP! Fingers crossed it’s more than one!!

thanks for the responses! I really appreciate the voices of reason while my patience is wearing thin 🙂 I will try to do the 4 hr hold Friday evening. Even if it’s a faint line I could test again Saturday morning just to be sure. I’m so scared it’s going to be negative and that the symptoms are just a coincidence! I go back and forth between thinking I definitely am, then thinking there’s no way we got that lucky so fast.

@kate02121:  I’m 9DPO (maybe??) and totally symptom spotting too, even though I pretty much convinced myself we didn’t time our BD well enough this month and I’m still not sure about O..

@BellaDee:  You changed your pic! Love it!

@ajillity81:  According to the internet, every symptom that I spot is either pregnancy or cancer…  ;P

So….I just found out my best friend is pregnant!  They had just started to try too(I think this was her 2nd round).  While I’m super happy for her, I just can’t help but feel a bit sad on the inside.  That’s terrible right?  ….This is the worst tww ever and I’m only a few days dpo 🙁  Man, I’d love to get a bfp and be preggo together. 

 

Sorry to thread jack, I just need to vent.

@E_Lynne615:  haha thank you! 😉

 

so husband and I just BD’d … and i’m on my laptop about to do zumba (I find the full videos on google) and I keep getting pink orangey looking CM. what the actual heck??

we did JUST BD, so it could be just mixed with his sperm….but I don’t know why it’s day two with spotting.

I can’t wait to test tomorrow! lol I didn’t buy tests yet, I forgot. So i’ll get them later on.

@ajillity81:  I agree!! I had never heard of it either and went on to check it out.  So funny.  First of all I have like 80% of those NORMALLY!!! Secondly they all contradict each other.  Amother reason why the tww is so painful!!!

@PeachBee:  I’m a Dec 10th too—it seems so far away!!!  I just had a work meeting scheduled for that day and I was like that sounds familiar like I have something planned already–then I dawned on me-time to POAS lol

Hey everyone! It’s been a few months since I’ve been here…I had a chemical in August and sort of abandoned the TTC world for a while. I actually haven’t had AF since the chemical, but 110-ish LONG days later, I finally got signs of O. I’m not 100% sure I O’d because I’ve been sick for the last few days and I haven’t been temping, but I’m going to think positive and jump back in. 

ROLL CALL

Current Cycle Day/DPO: CD 113 (!!)

Ovulation Date/fertile window: Based on CM and OPK, I’m going to guess O was either yesterday or today

POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: Going to try to wait a whole 14 days, so December 19th

Cycles Trying: Uh…since May. That’s only 3 cycles, though. 

BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): folic acid supplement

Link to Chart, if anyhttp://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/emb610

and for fun –

What would you REALLY, REALLY love for a holiday gift (other than the obvious BFP of course…) ? 

I would love an iPad, even though I don’t really need one. Our “gift” to each other is a trip to San Francisco in the spring!

@CocoLoco523:  Thanks for keeping track of all this!  Please roll me down to 12/30 since AF arrived today.  DH was out of town for work during my FW this month (bummer!!) so it was the calmest TWW I’ve ever had, with no symptom spotting at all.  :). Great to see all the BFP’s already and FX for the rest of us!
