@mrswant2B:  The pictures is a little blurry so it’s hard tell, but I’d say that’s positive!  When mine look like that, we start BDing.  Once you get a positive, that’s all you need, but I would still test this evening and tomorrow to see if they’re getting darker or lighter.  Then you know if you caught the LH surge on the way or the way out.  But it’s time to get to it! ๐Ÿ˜‰  Why do you think your thermometer isn’t working?  My temps are pretty consistent until O and then spike after.

@linz09:  I don’t know if it helps at all scientifically to lay there for a bit, but it makes me feel like I’m doing something to help the process along, even if I’m not.  So, I lay there for 15 minutes or so.  By then, the swimmers have either reached their destination or my vag has killed them off! Laughing Too bad that’s actually true…

Ladies, I’m in the 2ww and I’m officially going crazy. I was all relaxed during my FW and now I’m psycho obsessed. Last night at 3DPO, I was convinced I must be pg….seriously WTF? I know enough to know that none of my phantom symptoms are real at 3DPO. I really need to take it down a notch or I’m going to be a puddle of tears when AF comes. I was reading that it’s best to find a hobby to keep your mind off TTC….what if your hobby is TTC?!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

@blondee: Congrats!

 

AFM, I’m getting super obsessed. I got my first + on my OPK on 11/8, and another on 11/9, and then stopped testing. So, did I O on the 9th? or 10th? I went and bought FRER’s today. Trying to wait til 11/22 to test, but I really want to know NOW! Plus, we have a hot tub and wine night scheduled for this weekend with my sister, and I gotta know before then… Ugh! ๐Ÿ™‚

@hardtoconcentrate:  I’m sure I will overanalyze every temp shift in the next 2 weeks, so I might have spoken too soon! lol  to pass the time, I’ve been reading “slutty books” as DH calls them.  After reading 50shades, it’s kind of become an obsession…::blushes::  It makes the days go by faster for me to be so into a book that I don’t even realize it’s time for bed!!

@lroetheli:  Ohhh, tell me more! What books?  I read 50 Shades on our Honeymoon and have been looking for something like that to read since, but the stuff I’ve found has been a little too hardcore.  I spent an hour on my nook the other night trying to find a similar book, so any info would be awesome!

@Steinberg:  Do you temp?  I think it’s hard to know exactly which day you O-ed unless you chart your temp also.  Everyone reacts on OPKs differently.  Some people get + ones a couple days before O and some people, like me, only get one positive and it’s the day of O.  I was able to confirm my O date with my temp spike.

@hardtoconcentrate:  I do not temp. Guess that will be a new adventure to start after this. Actually, I tried it for a little while, but it was a PITA. Cause, you know, I’m lazy. Lol.

 

Did anybody get crazy irritable before getting a BFP? I was irritated at the world yesterday, then was crying while watching Criminal Minds last night. At an episode I’d seen before. Oy.

@MrsPuddingface:  Heehee thank you for your obsession support.  I don’t even want to talk about it because I feel so stupid…like ridiculous.  I know none of this is real.  But you twisted my arm so here goes…;)  As a preamble, I am fully aware that none of this is real – I’m only 4dpo. 

Yesterday I was feeling off all day – nausea, indigestion (never happens) and all burpy and (TMI) I planned to do the dirty orally with hubs and couldn’t put it in my mouth without gagging (HUH?).  So he got a handy instead, thanks to your suggestion yesterday.  He thanks you.  And this obviously means nothing but (MAJOR Too Much Information AGAIN!!!) doing typical stuff for us (nothing new or out of the ordinary), I had the most intense orgasm ever…like seriously, ever…so of course I obsess over that and if that means anything.  See an obsessive pattern here?   Then there’s the headache that started yesterday and hasn’t gone away.  I took some Aleve last night because that always helps and it didn’t go away.  Then I freaked out because if I did happen to be pg, I probably shouldn’t take Aleve.  The headache is in full effect today.  And I generally just feel crampy and off.  I feel stupid even writing this because I know I’m being ridiculous. I’m being way too crazy this month but I can’t seem to back away from reading and obsessing on the computer – it’s a slow week which doesn’t help. 

Sorry for the Too Much Information, ladies.  I stared at this and deleted it and rewrote it and deleted it multiple times trying to figure out whether to post.  Oh well.   

ETA: I’m going to feel like such an idiot in 2 weeks when I start my period and I have to reread this post.  Hopefully I’ll be able to chalk it up to the random crazy thoughts we have during the TWW.

@hardtoconcentrate:  Well, while it is def too early to tell, I’m with you on the slow week = extra obsession time. Do you ever go to count down to pregnancy website and look at all the pictures of pee tests? OMG, talk about feeding the addiction. Every BFP reinforces that it’s totally possible.

 

Why is symptom spotting so easy? Regardless, baby dust to you.
