@bunny – This was only our second month really trying, so I know I have zero room to complain because we just started. For some reason I just figured that we would be one of the couples that got it the first month of trying. I should feel blessed that at least my cycles regulated immediately after stopping BCP.
@chrispygal – Woot! Congrats!
@jaguar – *fingers crossed for a OPK+ for you soon* Are you doing OPKs once or twice a day? I’ve read some women need to do them twice a day to catch the postive test.
@MissMaine – ((hugs))

Today makes 7 dpo, I’m crossing my fingers! I’m trying not to get too excited because it’s our first month ttc and our first month off bcp.
Ovulation was estimated last Tuesday the 8, but I had cramps Monday-Wednesday. Think it might have been Monday instead? We BD 2x Monday.
I guess we will see! I have a little discomfort today, but nothing super serious..depending on how I’m laying/sitting I feel minor discomfort but not quite AF pre-cramps.

Are you charting BBT or CM to determine your O date?

Thanks girl. I’m trying to stay positive and know there’s lots of things to look forward to if this cycle ever ends. At least I’m relaxing a bit because I’m not hoping I’m pregnant anymore, so hopefully my stress level will decrease a bit too and bring on AF. I hope you had a blast at the wedding!
Sorry to hear of AF’s arrival. Whether it’s month 1 or month 17, it still sucks. You’ll grow a thicker skin as you get further along (although I hope you don’t have to!), but it never hurts any less. Hugs to you!
I do have horrid PCOS, so we’re hoping a low-dose of Met will regulate my hormones enough to bring on AF. I’ve done this once before and it worked like magic, but it’s taking longer this time. I’m on Day 4 of 500mg and I just have terrible AF cramps, so I’m hoping that she’ll make an appearance soon. I just want this cycle done and over with! Good luck with your blood test 🙂
Thank you! I am no good at deciphering charts but I hope that this was a weird temp and you already O’ed while DH was there! Good luck! 🙂
WOW – congratulations! What a fantastic surprise. I can’t imagine how good that digital “Pregnant” feels!! H&H 9 months!

Yick… sorry about the BFN! I know how discouraging it feels. It’s so weird that the month you have all the symptoms, you are so positive that you are pregnant. Then the month that you don’t have any at all, you’re super hoping this is it because you’ve heard those stories as well – where everyone had no symptoms at all and didn’t even suspect they were pregnant and BAM! Ugh. We can never win! Here’s to hoping it was just too early… what DPO are you?
Good luck staying sane during this TWW!

Congratulations!! Just seeing that PREGNANT pop up on the board makes me smile 🙂 A happy and healthy 9 months to you!!

Good luck to everyone in the TWW right now – seems like there’s a ton of you!! Hope everyone gets a BFP to be especially thankful for this Thanksgiving 🙂
Sitting at CD11 right now. Still getting high’s on the CBEFM, which I take as a good thing? DH and I have resolved our silly fight, thankfully. Now I guess it’s just a wait to see if I ever get a peak and BD the heck out of things anyway 🙂

Thanks everyone! I appreciate the well wishes and congrats. And @chastenet:
I have no idea how I didn’t analyze everything. I knew I was having this stuff happen but I was just so convinced that my body was making things up before that I wasn’t paying attention to them. I was sincerely shocked. In a good way of course. 🙂

I would like to tell myself that I’ll be able to wait to test, but I wouldn’t be fooling anyone. 🙂
OMG congrats!!!! How many DPO are you?

I’m sitting here at 11-12 DPO. I’m beginning to think that AF is going to show up for sure. I got a BFN on a 10 m/ui test this morning. Boobs are feeling a little deflated right now, but sore. I had the weirdest period like cramp this weekend lasting for about a half hour then nothing. Still not sure, but thinking that AF is still going to show up anyway.
What’s weird about the 10 tests is that this month, I don’t know if I’m seeing a lot of evap. lines or not. When I took the test, the line area looked negative. When it dries, the faint second line got darker than the day before. I’m still convinced that it’s just evaporation lines at this point.

@chastenet: started bbt but couldn’t remember to do it, so I switched to just cm. last time I went off the pill I had normal cycles right away, which coulda been luck! But I had definite cramps starting Monday, and until Wednesday (sometimes intermittent sometimes constant.)
Post # 58
Fingers crossed for you! Cramps this weekend could have been implantation since usually between 6 – 12 dpo. It would make since that you aren’t getting clear positives yet if that’s the case. I think it’s a good sign 🙂
I set an alarm for charting, otherwise I would forget. That’s awesome though if you get ovulation cramping. I have no idea when I ovulate, which is why I need OPK’s (not much of a help though) and teming, otherwise I drive myself crazy trying to figure out when it happened and where I am in my cycle!
Once I have confirmation that I O’d, I’m going to channel your “ignore the symptoms” attitude. Tell myself that it’s all in my head and try not to think about it until 14 dpo….yeah right, I seriously doubt I’m fooling anyone here 😉

YAY! this is great news~ let’s keep the BFP’s coming. also, i know you are in your late 30s so this gives me and the rest of us older wannabe mums lots of hope. have a H&H 9 mos!
little miss maine i am so sorry this hasn’t been your month. i know your new RE can help you get preganant in the comings months regardless of your challenges.
i am fighting a crazy headcold over here. i am worried it may be messing with my temps for my chart. i usually ovulate on cd 16 which is today but i am still having patched of EWCM and my temp dropped this morning. this is my first time temping vaginally and i have been under a tremendous amount of stress this month so perhaps it is just delayed a bit?
i have my first ever accupuncture appt tonight. wish me luck bees! i’ll let you know how it goes. it is supposed to aid in stress levels and help ovulation and blood circulation to the reproductive organs. you can get great deals on lifebooker.

@chrispygal : Congrats!!! How very exciting!!! Good luck with your 9 months!
I’m 11 dpo and pretty proud of myself for not testing over the weekend….I ususally start POAS at like day 6 so i’m trying to hold out for AF due date cause that shiz gets expensive! I’m actually not feeling too positive though; I haven’t seemed to have any kind of symptons at all except sore tata’s but that always happens a couple days before AF….so I guess time will tell. Good luck to everyone else who is waiting it out!

Congrats!!! How many DPO are you??
I am sitting here at 10 DPO with a HPT on my lap trying to talk myself into waiting to POAS…Really want to hold out until at least Wed…ugh!!
Hope everyone has a great week and good luck to all the ladies who are tesing this week!
