@ostrich:  I caved and bought tests, but haven’t tested – waiting for FMU, but trying to hold out for a Thursday or (better) Friday test.

@jaguar:  I’m so sorry.  ๐Ÿ™  Sending all my positive thoughts your way this morning.

I’m still only 9DPO, but I just had a temp dip this morning and started getting some fun cramping. So …. it’s either PMS, implantation, or … gas from the tacos DH made last night. I love symptom spotting. Ha.

@iRun2004:  Are YOU the reason I started cramping in the past couple of hours?  I’m not charting but I should start this weekend.  I don’t want to POAS until I’m officially “late” but kinda wanted to do it before Mother’s Day.  Not sure how many DPO I am since I didn’t get a positive OPK from CD8-16.

@texasbee:  Absolutely! I will take all the blame!! How long are your cycles normally? When is AF “late”?

I have mixed feelings about the charting. My doc said temperatures can be maddening (no kidding) and said I should just spring for the expensive OPK and use that as my guide.  But I’m concerned about not getting the positives in some cycles because I didn’t test at the right time/couldn’t hold it long enough.  So for now, I’m still taking the temp every morning at 5:15 am.

@jaguar:  Oh Jag, I’m so sorry. I know how badly you wanted it to work out this cycle. I was praying for your miracle baby. Really hoping that things work out despite the spotting.

@iRun2004:  So according to webMD, I’m 26 days but the last 3 months have been 28, 26, 28 so go figure.  It says based on 26 days, AF is due Friday but if I’m more like 28 it should be Sunday.  I’m having some serious all over full-feeling cramps and lower back cramps.  That usually starts the day of AF and is the worst the day after.  So maybe its some weird 23/24 day cycle???

@texasbee:  26 is already on the shorter side, I would be that Friday is the earliest you should think AF is due (sometimes the witch likes to play tricks on you like my fun cramping today when AF isn’t supposed to be here until Saturday).  Did you track your CM? Does that give you a better idea of when you may have O’d?

So my AF arrived yesterday ๐Ÿ™ This was cycle 1 for us, so I wasn’t counting on it or anything, but I had such a pretty FF chart (really obvious O temp shift, and consistent temps) that I was getting pretty hopeful. But 14dpo and AF came with a vengeance. I forgot how painful periods were off hormonal BC, I was a super-grouch all day yesterday.

This past cycle, I tested at 8dpo and 12dpo (both BFN, obviously) with a FRER stick. Are there cheaper sticks out there for HCG, like does Wondfo make them too (I use their OPKs which worked very well for me)? I feel like I saw a pic of them in another thread, but has anyone used any cheaper test method? I think I want to save the FRERs for once I’m late, rather than jumping the gun and hemorrhaging $$ on tests….

@xstine515:  Have you checked out the “internet test strips”? I think they detect HCG levels as low as 10 like FRER’s (I think!), but they are super cheap!

@iRun2004:  Nope, I didn’t track my CM.  It’s hard for me to tell what’s the real stuff as opposed to other stuff.  I’m thinking maybe I’m more likely gonna see AF on Friday. Which sucks b/c I know I’m gonna be tired on Saturday.

@xstine515:  I’m sorry about AF! I’m overseas so I have a very limited choice of HPT and OPKs so I’m gonna order some off of Amazon for next month.  Plus, I’m going to order some Preseed.  Heard it’s supposed to be good.
