(Closed) FEBRUARY POAS (part two!)

posted 7 years ago in TTC
  • poll: Do you untie your shoes every time you take them off?

    I slip my shoes off and then have to undo the laces when I put them back on.

    I listened to my mother - always untie them before taking them off!

    I manage to force them on and off without undoing them.

    I don't even own a single pair of shoes with laces.

    I tie my shoes so loosely that they never have to be untied.

    I wear my shoes untied.

    My baby fever is so bad that I can't even wear shoes. (??? hahaha..)

    i have been on the TTC boards for a while but I don’t think I’ve been in here yet. Fingers crossed that this is finally our month!!!! I’m getting really impatient and surrounded by friends and family who are preggo!!!!

     

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: 8dpo

     

    Ovulation Date: Feb 12

     

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length: luteal is usually 13 days, so Tuesday the 25th would be it. May test tomorrow, 9dpo, just BC I have a lot of tests.

     

    Cycles Trying: 7

     

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.): prenatals, this is our 3rd month of clomid, just got bumped to 100mg. Bd at least EOD, but 4 days in a row during fw.

     

    and for fun –

     

    What are you going to do to ENJOY this month aside from TTC? Lots of wedding festivities!

    @shaniqua: Honestly… I’ll probably test early. Haha. Because we used NFP before, DH is totally aware of exactly when I ovulated and exactly when I should take a pregnancy test, so the only way I can surprise him with the news is if I find out before 14 dpo. I just would rather do something cute to give him the news, rather than wait until 14 dpo when he’ll be like “so, have you tested yet?” Of course, I know chances are I’m not even pregnant, and even if I am it’s possible a test won’t show positive early anyway… but I have a bunch of wondfos in my bathroom drawer so why not use them, right?

    @candy11: I’m so sorry. I have long cycles too, so I’ll have to skip March as well if this month doesn’t work out.

    @graygodess20:  So sorry to hear about your dad. I’m sure it will be a great comfort to your parents to have you there though.

    Yesterday I was eating a cookie, and it tasted like fish. FISH. I was so confused, but I figured it was possibly because the cookie dough was in the freezer originally, and I also have frozen tilapia in the freezer (although both were in sealed packages, and the cookie dough was totally unopened). But then I was drinking a glass of milk and it tasted like fish too! Does that happen because of the prenatal vitamins? I had forgotten to take the prenatals for a couple days though, so it seems like it couldn’t be related to that, right? I know I’m symptom spotting or whatever and it’s probably all in my head and I’m just naive and on my first cycle TTC and overly excited and all, and I totally don’t feel pregnant AT ALL otherwise. But still. Weird.

    I stopped myself from testing this morning, but that’s mostly because I started out by taking my temp and found it was starting to drop. Went from 97.9 to 97.6 this morning. If it’s down more tomorrow, then I know what up. If it’s up, I’ll probably test tomorrow morning. But I’m almost positive I noticed some very light spotting this morning as well, so maybe AF will show up today.

    I think I’m going to take a break from the boards for awhile. I love finding support here, but I think I need to focus on other things like my hobbies while we wait for our BFP. Last night I broke down in tears and my husband reminded me that I used to do things for myself, like paint and play the guitar. Lately I’ve been so overcome with trying to get pregnant that I’ve put a lot of that stuff on hold. I need to relax a bit and let things happen and try not to force it.

    So no promises, but I think I’m going to try and stay away for a bit. Best of luck ladies!!

    Just checking in…I’m about 11-12 DPO and up until now the TWW has been pretty easy.  Now I feel like since it’s possible that I “could” get a BFP this far in, I want to test…but I’m still trying to hold out until next week.  I was testing like a crazy person from 9DPO to 16DPO last cycle, so I’m trying to refrain…

    Or maybe I should go buy a $1 cheapie at lunch and test….hmmm…

    LOL

    Hope you ladies are having a wonderful Friday, and have a great weekend!! Sending baby dust to everyone! πŸ™‚

    I was originally on the list but removed myself shortly after. I totally messed up my cycle this month so I thought for sure there was no chance but to our surprise we got a BFP this morning! After work I’m heading to the dr to get my blood drawn. I should have results early next week. Praying for a sticky baby!

    I’m a rollover.  I’m actually in really good spirits about it.  Cycle 1 of trying…how upset can I really be, right?  More wine and even more sex!  πŸ™‚ 

     

    It took me 18 months to conceive my prefect little baby girl.  Perfection takes TIME!  πŸ™‚

     

    Congrats to the BFPs out there!

    @E_Lynne615:  Wait’s over – roll me over. 

    I really had no expectation of a BFP this month because of our timing so my extreme disappointment really caught me off guard.  I walked around in a total funk yesterday.  And to top it off, this is a REALLY bad AF.  I would have thought that with my cycle being so much shorter than normal that the bleeding would be light but no such luck.  This is the most miserable AF since my miscarriage.  In a couple days, I’m hoping to be able to look at the positives: I O’ed on CD16, my cycle was 28 days exactly (for the first time ever in my whole entire life), and AF held off long enough for me to squeak out a 12 day LP.  All fantastic things for my first cycle on met.  I think today I just need to let myself feel like crap, though, and probably drink some wine.
