Hi ladies! I may be a little late to the party but I’m excited to see this board.  We got married 3 weeks ago and planned to start TTC right away, so here I am…

 

Current Cycle Day: CD25

POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: My cycles are consistently 27-28 days.

Cycles trying: This is our first cycle trying.  I O’d at the end of our honeymoon (on CD14) and didn’t think we hit the right timing because we were sleep deprived that week and trekking through airports for a couple days as we headed back home.  BUT then I started spotting yesterday (CD24), which is 4-5 days early for my period and an extremely short cycle.  So now I’m holding my breath in hopes that this could possibly be implantation bleeding. So we’ll see!

BD Timing: Every day of our Honeymoon, but the last time was 3 days before I O’d and then we did the morning of O. 

Any obstacles: None yet.

 

Good luck everyone!!!

@Mrs.Sunflower:  I’m so obsessed right now too!  Ok, not gonna lie, I did a test on Saturday…WAAAAY too early (6 days before I expect AF) and it was a BFN.  So, I was feeling a little down and then the next day started spotting, and I have spotting again today, really minimally.  Like I said, that’s 4-5 days early for me and I already have a pretty short cycle, so it’s really surprising. And, my temp hasn’t dropped like it does when I’m starting AF, so I’m DYING to test.  But I don’t want to be disappointed again.  Maybe tomorrow??  I’d love to be able to wait until Wednesday, but I just don’t think I can.  What about you?  When will you? (I’m reading the past pages of the thread now, so sorry, I’m sure you’ve probably said it before in the thread, it’s just taking me a while to get there. Smile)

@SimplyChic11:  I’m in the 14th club haha. But I’m 8 days from missing my period. It’s so frustrating to wait. My cousin just announced she was pregnant, and said “Oh, the condom broke”. WHAT? How can it be so simple for you? lol

@hardtoconcentrate:  Oppps, I meant to have that in reply to you. But I’m testing the 14th. It seems so long from now. I’m excited. I would test in a couple of days. Its never good to get a lot of negatives.

Bees!  I’m joining but I have to be honest, I already POAS this AM.

Current Cycle Day: CD36..I’m late should have gotten my period yesterday.

POAS date/Usual Cycle Length: My cycles lately have been 32-35 days.

Cycles trying: For me, the gloves came off the minute the ring went on.  My husband however just figured out I was serious in August.  I charted in August and used OPK’s when I got the positive one we BD’d a lot!  At the end of August I had my yearly and the first thing my doctor said when I told her I was trying to have a baby was don’t go online and don’t use the strips, you’ll go crazy.  Little did she know I already was.  And the very next week AF came knocking on the door and then I went really crazy.  So I took her advice got off the bee didn’t chart, and didn’t use the OPK’s.  I started lurking here again about a week ago knowing I would POAs soon.  I tried ignoring other people symptom spotting and the urge to test for as long as possible…which ended this AM. I vowed when I came on to post again I would start fresh with a new user name and so..here I am.

BD Timing: With a 35ish day cycle I should O around day 21..just to be extra studious we BD’d every other day from CD 14 on though we fell off the wagon around CD 22 and have been consistently every two days.

Any obstacles: My own obsessive brain.

Bees!  This is where I need your help.  I specifically waited to test this AM because hubby is at the office and I have the day off. I definitely see a second line ala @Sea_bass but I’ve tried and tried and tried to get a good pic to post up here for advice but they all suck.  I seriously know I’m not crazy and there is a line. I tested again after 2.5-3 hours and while it wasn’t as noticable there was definitely still something there.

I don’t even want to tell my hubby because the thought of getting his hopes up is too much. I just don’t know, go ttc crazy again and head out to buy better tests or wait it out a few more days.  This is where I show I’m still a bit of a novice…what would be the reason for the line to be so light? I know it has to do with picking up HCG in my pee but that’s why I wonder if I should go for it today with a better test or wait a few more days… .

Oh bees, the things we do to ourselves mentally!

@TheNewlyMrsD:  To me it sounds like you’re expecting ! ESP if the line showed up on more than one test. ๐Ÿ˜€ did you test with your first morning urine? You could do that tomorrow or get a digital test if you want to be absolutely sure. From what I understand its not probable you’d get a false positive although a false negative can happen very often with at home tests depending on the test and how you take it. Best of luck to you!

@TheNewlyMrsD:  Sounds like you’re expecting!  I know the wait sucks, but I would try again with first morning pee.  That should show up best and give you the clear BFP you’re looking for.

@Mrs.Sunflower:  There are so many people testing on the 14th – how fun!  It’s so hard to wait.  I think I’ll test tomorrow AM.  That’s 2-3 days before AF and CD26.  If I keep spotting like this without AF coming today, I feel like I’m pregnant.  I have never spotted like this before any period.  So every time I pee, I’m terrified AF will show her ugly face!

Thanks for the advice!

@SimplyChic11:  I tested the first time with my FMU and the second was about 3 hours later.  I’m thinking the same, I should go out and get some better tests and do it again tomorrow morning with FMU…but seriously if it comes up positive, how in the world am I supposed to concentrate at work!

@hardtoconcentrate:  Thank you!  It does indeed suck…it’s crazy how mental we get!
