Just feeling sad this morning and wanted to write. I took a First Response HPT this morning and it was negative. I could barely sleep last night with nerves, waiting to take the test today, I even dreamed about it. Yesterday was such an emotional day, that I was hoping I’d have something to be happy about.
The thing is, I’m not giving up hope yet. Fertility Friend has my projected period today, which I felt was a little early for my cycle. Today is only Day 29, and in the past 6 cycles it was 33 or 31 days. FF also changed my ovulation date from Day 14 to 19 and back to 14, so I’m hoping there’s still a chance.
This was my first month charting with FF. I have 25 points in their “Early Pregnancy Signs” and no normal PMS signs. I think my Ovulation day was closer to Day 17-19.
We shall see. Thanks for listening.

Sorry about your BFN. I’m in the same boat, I tested this morning and got a BFN. I had/have 44 pts on the FF app :/

Thanks, Lyndzo. Hoping we’re both just testing too early.

it’s not over until it’s over. Good luck in the next few days. I wouldn’t pay too much attention to the points on the FF app.. I had like 6 points when I got my BFP

I am not too familiar with charting and testing and such, but wanted to reach out to you. I am hoping you get a positive result tomorrow, maybe today is too early to tell? Good luck, OP.

@tracylesq: Looks to me like you ovulated on day 17 of your cycle based on your temps. Also, I wouldn’t pay much attention to the number of points you have – I had 68 last month and wasn’t pregnant. Good luck!

@tracylesq: I think you ovulated on CD 17 or 19. It’s hard to tell. Definitely by CD19. If you don’t start shark week in another week, take another test, but I wouldn’t beforehand. Don’t pay attention to “points” because progesterone is the cause of all symptoms in the TWW until the last few days, and even then the difference is so subtle it could easily just be due to progesterone and not hcg. The only symptom you should really pay attention to missing your period, otherwise you drive yourself crazy.

So sorry to hear that, hopefully good news tomorrow 🙂
I’m not ttc yet (tho we had an incident last month that had a very small chance to lead to pregnancy, and I was crazy excited / nervous about testing last month, and irrationally disappointed with bfn). We’re waiting a few months before starting officially, which is proving difficult as I’m so impatient…

@Lyndzo: what does 44 pts mean?
Post # 12
Thanks for all the input, ladies! I had a feeling my ovulation day was later than FF was saying. Nothing yet, so fingers still crossed. 🙂

Yeah, I have to agree that you ovulated later than FF says. I’m almost leaning toward day 21 actually. It’s hard to say since you’ve only been charting one cycle, but you could have an 11 day luteal phase (which is still an appropriate length!), which would explain your 33 day cycle. You’re not out until AF sings 🙂
But, I’m sorry you’re disappointed. It’s such an emotional process.
