    I am kind of having a little freak out here right now! I should be ovulating yesterday according to my opk and then today when I used the washroom I seen some spotting.  Sorry for tmi but it was red like fresh blood. Not a lot but enough to show up after wiping.  Im scared there is something wrong.  Anyone else have bleeding  right in the middle of their cycle??? 

     

    @Elayne51:   I was wondering the same thing.  I just got two positive opks and I am just wondering if I should use the whole box

    @missstarling:  I had some light red spotting last night after we BD’d and now I have brown spotting.   I researched it and ovulation spotting isnt anything to worry about as long as it light.

    @nonapkns:  haha, I wonder if he knew what the Mucinex does for TTC, or if he just thought “aw, poor thing is sick AND pregnant at the same time.”

    @ajillity81:  I wonder if the FRERs would be cheaper at the Wal-Mart across the street from Meijer where I live. I have kind of a grudge against Wal-Mart, so I rarely shop there, but I might be willing to call a truce for truly cheap FRERs.

    @missstarling:  Sounds like ovulation spotting to me. Nothing to worry about!

    @PeachBee:  

    At a GOOD regular price 19.99!    I was going to buy some the other day, the were 22$ a box  >.<    Then I went to another pharmacy and found them at 13.99 a box.  

    So I bought four, lol.    That’s 8 tests…

     

     

     

    You all don’t even want to SEE what came in the mail today.    30 OPKs and 30 HCG strips.    That’s on top of what I have left over from last month of different brands, plus my 8 FRERs and two pharmacy brand blue dye tests…    I think I have a problem.   hahaha.

    Does anyone else play a little reverse psychology on their bodies?

    I’ve come across some great deals on clothes lately (I usually don’t want to spend, but I have a weakness for Lululemon and workout clothes in general) and I keep telling myself not to buy anything because it probably won’t fit for very long, and then it might not fit after I have the baby.    And here I am, months and months later, still not pregnant.  

    I just went and bought a bunch of things hoping that I will buy them and then I get pregnant… but if it makes me  have a sticky baby it’s worth it.

    Oh can I ask everyone a question? I’m in my TWW and am driving myself crazy haha this is my first cycle and I ovulated on the 3.01.2014. At 7dpp I had a lower back ache and mild ache/cramp above my pubic bone, today at 8dpo I noticed a small amount of discharge (brown) that has now gone and I have an INSANE appetite! I have eaten so much and every 1-2 hours I feel like I haven’t eaten in days along with a dizzy/spacey feeling and headaches. I don’t want to get my hopes up since I’m not sure what I’m looking for since I haven’t had a pregnancy before. Has anyone else experienced this?

    @Charlie89:  hey, we are cycle twins! I also ovulated on January 3rd and am sitting pretty at 8 DPO. 🙂

    I agree with BellaDee that the symptoms you posted sound really encouraging. If the brown discharge was implantation bleeding, I’d expect you could get a BFP if you test on CD 10 or CD 11, but I’d really recommend using a good test like a FRER rather than an internet cheapie. Good luck!!!

    @Purple_Bride:  aaahhh! Me too! I am OBSESSED with lululemon! It is so funny that I have been having the same thoughts as you. I just dropped $200 there yesterday and thought to myself “well now I’m sure to get pregnant” lol. But actually I’m not too stressed about the clothing.  I have been googling other pregnant women still wearing their Lulu appearal and there are a ton out there! Apperantly the cool racer backs make great maternity shirts and don’t lose their shape.  Crossing my fingers we’ll have baby bumps to dress in lululemon soon!

    @TigerLily13:  

     

    With my last pregnancy, I never even got maternity clothes.   I stayed super small, I’m hoping the same thing happens again.   I was still under 100 lbs at my 20 week check up, lol, and I gained 23 lbs total.   I figure I might have to give up on wearing some tight tanks afte a while so I don’t stretch them out, but everything else should be fine, bras, skirts, pants shorts, etc.   At this rate, I’d take not being able to wear my clothes right away if it meant I could stay pregnant…

    Hello bees! Might I join? First of all congrats to all the bees who have already got their BFP. I am so excited for every single one of you and also excited to join this fabulous group of ladies.

    NewBees: My husband and I got married August 2013, we wanted to start TTC in May 13 but my husband got diagnosed with cancer. Luckily we had great doctors and lots of help and he is doing awesome now. His sperm check (could have decreased due to chemotherapy) came back 100% PERFECT in December so decided to not longer wait and start TTC January. I got off BC in August and I’ve had pretty regular cycles (29-31 days) since then. So here we go, my first roll call, eeeeeek.

    Current Cycle Day/DPO: I am 2DPO. I think, it’s my first cycle really monitoring my fertile window. At least my calendar and first positive OPK were on the same track.

    Ovulation Date/fertile window: January 9th

    POAS Date/Usual Cycle Length:  I’ll try to hold out (haha) till I miss my period which would be January 24th. Normally my cycles are around 29-31 days.

    Cycles Trying: 1st!

    BFP Plan (BD timing, supplements, etc.):  I had a smiley face on my clearblue OPK set but we tried to BD a lo t around that time, too (TMI?). O-4, O-3, O-2, O-1, the day of O, O+1. So I think it’s a pretty good timing. I’ve been on prenatals for half a year now.

    Link to Chart, if any: Not charting yet.

    and for fun –

    What is your New Years Resolution??:

    Being thankful every day that everyone I love is happy and healthy and not getting stressed out by the little things. Yay!
