Couldn’t figure out how to type after the picture. So I had told DH last night at midnight that it was positive and he goes “hmm .. I’d like a darker line” and falls back asleep. What? Exactly as I had planned! Haha, not.
So this morning, he goes “did you take a test?” and I said “Yes, I told you it was positive.” And he goes “OMG! YAAAYY!! NO COFFEE FOR YOU!” Bhahaha. He was sleepy.

@chelles07: thanks 🙂 FX that your sticky BFP is close too
thank you! I really do hope so too…even if I get a BFP I’m not going to let myself get carried away until I have my betas checked. Sadly I have learned to be cautious.
thank you! 🙂

@carolinabee: WOW! Congratulations 🙂 And LOL at DH’s response!
I’m surprised you slept at all knowing you were waiting to get up hoping to see a darker line!!
Sorry about AF 🙁
Everyone else: What is Preggo? Obviously not something we have in Australia 🙂 Your announcement ideas are all so cute, I don’t think I’d have the patience to execute any of them though…I’ve always wondered if I found out in the morning if I’d even be able to wait to tell DH face to face. I think I’d have to drive to his work and tell him, I’d explode if I had to wait until the afternoon!
I’m ready to start POASing with OPKs again tomorrow – I feel like I get a little crazier once any sticks are involved. That means I’m crazy for about 20 days/month…not good

@BumpAhead: Sorry about AF 🙁 You’re welcome to join the March board though once we make it! I’m thinking sometime next week since there should be a lot of us by then.
Congratulations! I’m so happy for you! Loved your DH’s reaction too, hahaha!

@AnnieGrace: Prego is a brand of jarred spaghetti sauce.
So sorry about your furbaby. We did use that idea to tell our parents. I bought this shirt for our pup and when we were ready to tell them, we put it on her and sent her in the room saying “Lucky has an announcement to make”.

@carolinabee: WOW! Congrats! How exciting for you! FX for a sticky baby!
Love hearing about all the cute ways to tell you DH. I have a few different ideas, but I really like the idea of having them look through a pile or album of pictures just to stumble upon the announcement. Thinking it might be cute to include in our wedding album pics (which would mean i would actually have to order them first…lol)
We are officially in the TWW! aka, torture!! 🙂 FX for all the other bees!

preggo is pasta sauce. Ever since starting TTC I make sure to keep a jar of it in our pantry.

Aughh I am so frustrated and just need to vent!
SO I haven’t been on the pill for almost a decade so AF is pretty regular and I have a good idea of what is normal/not normal for me. Just started TTC in December. Last “normal” AF started Jan 2nd. To make a long story short, I usually either wake up with AF or it hits in the morning (no spotting, just surprise!), and last Wednesday it showed up as afternoon dark brown spotting on the verge of being late (I refuse to test unless late so I never did). I got bummed, assumed I was out, tampon-ed it up and went on with my life. AF is always 4-5 days for me starting out heavy then lightening up til its gone. This ended up being barely 2 days and then on and off spotting until Monday. Had weird brown spotting after sex on Sunday too which has never happened to me before, kinda freaked me out! Now it is a week later and I have been flat out exhausted for days (keeping my eyes open is a chore) and I still feel PMS-y with occasional cramps and light nausea if I don’t eat. I took a test yesterday afternoon after work out of sheer curiousity and of course it was negative, so now I am wondering if maybe I was pregnant for a hot minute and it just didn’t pan out? Would you take another test with FMU or just wait to see how this month goes? Just seems like a bit of a coincidence to have my first wonky period ever while TTC and I know it isn’t just in my head, sigh

@chelles07: I agree, finding the “right” thermometer is frustrating. My Target thermometer has a range of favorite temps…Mr. Google tells me a lot of women have the exact same fav temps…97.33…97.05…97.18. I’m very skeptical of it, now!! Maybe I’ll try out a regular ol one if other Bees are using those…
I’m planning on telling DH ASAP when I see that BFP. I’ll probably wave the pee stick in his face. We’re not cutesy, nor am I creative enough to come up with a fun way of telling him. The best I can think of is maybe getting a Packers onesie (he’s a die hard Packers fan).
Bummer!! Onwards to the next cycle! 🙂
Oh my goodness, CONGRATS!!!!!!!!
Ugh, how frustrating!! I know some other Bees have had some serious, period-like spotting and ended up being pregnant (cowgirlace, I think????) Maybe try out a FRER if you’re OK with the possibility of a negative?? GL!!
Ladies, I think it’s time for a new thread soon…think I’ll start one…

@MrsPuddingface: Thank you, hon. When i used to babysit, when i was in college, to keep the kids busy i would go to the craft store, Michaels’, and buy a bunch of those puzzles and have them draw on it and they loved it…lol…and kept them busy
Oh no, sorry about AF;(
FX for you sweety!
AWWW i love the Big Sister Shirt!!! That’s soooo adorable and Congratulations. I hope you are habing a H&H 9 months…what an amazing journey you are in!!!
Oh my goodness, I hate the TWW….FX for you girly!
Oh boy! I would be frustrated too, did you take a digital test? I hear those are much accurate. Also, sometimes some woman don’t get a BFP but might get a postitive blood work…can you maybe call your doctor and get a blood test? Otherwise, if you think its too much, then wait how this week goes for you, before testing again. GL and keep us posted….I hope you get your BFP! 😉
