Hmm...I think I will test tomorrow. I am 16dpo and no sign of AF. I almost always will have spotting, at least internally, a day or two before AF begins. No spotting at all. This is our 12th cycle trying, so I haven't been expecting anything. I started drinking some raspberry tea just a week ago- no more than one cup a day. Wondering if that could have a strange effect? I haven't been temping, but I am pretty sure I o'd on cd 15- ewcm and o spotting two days before. I looked through ff- and if there is no AF today(cd 30), it would be the longest cycle. The previous year, it does show a 31 day cyle.
Oh- and my boobs only just started feeling tender yesterday. They usually are bigger and tender thru the 2ww.
Anyways, tomorrow makes sense right? I really keep checking and thinking AF is just about here. Only one preg test left! Lol

Made a preconception appointment today! It's next Wednesday with a new doctor. Hopefully it will be better than last time...
I have been using the clear blue smiley face digital ovulation tests. I'm not 100% sure how much I trust it since it says to test only once a day with fmu but today was the third day and it read highly fertile so we will see what happens over the next couple days! The directions say it can give me 3 highly fertile days and 1 peak day? So DH and I will just keep on BD'ing over the next couple days!
Hmm...that sounds interesting Jessie. I'm curious about opk and fertility monitors. What other ones have you ladies tried and what's your impression of them?
This cycle was my first time using them. I bought a box of Answers from Walmart. I got a positive one on Tues the 5th, and we BD'd that day... I'm currently waiting for AF, so I'll let you know if it worked or not! lol. I mean, the test worked as far as giving me a postive. There are a lot of other variables that go into it. I just know I'll like OPK's more if I get a BFP this cycle. LOL
Still no sign of spotting or AF! Just scant amounts of yellow creamy cm. will be fun to test tomorrow!
Ok ladies I need a little help (probably a lot of help but that's another story!)
So I started spotting today (had a somewhat large temp drop this morning so I figured it was AF coming) it's not uncommon for me to have a day of spotting before the regular flow. But I'm feeling unusual discomforts --not pain necessarily and definitely not cramps either -- one on the right side ovary area and the other which happens at the same time on my back directly on my right hip.
Since the spotting is pinkish brown and not red...is that combined with the weird pseudo-pains something to worry about or am I just overthinking the early stages of my period?
With that temp drop I would assume AF is OTW So sorry Natalie. But it's not over until AF shows!
I got a positive on a wondfo today!!! I will test again this afternoon and if it's positive I may break out my FRER lol
Ebennett...praying for a bfp tomorrow !!!!
Jessiebee...!! I hope you get some answers...and really hoping this dr is much more understanding (((hugs)))!!
Natalie...praying it's not AF but a little one burrowing in ! I don't think it's anything to worry about otherwise (((hugs)))!
Ack, I ordered wondfo opks and they sent me hpts ...going to have to ask them to expedite it to get them here on time...hopefully they'll be willing to since it was their mistake.
I am going to have to order more tests but I don't think I will be doing OPK's again. Temping is always so much more reliable for me. Even on clomid I don't O until CD 18-19 so I have a ways to go. I really hope my doctor can prescribe something to help me jump start a period so we can move onto the next cycle. Today is CD 39 and as of tomorrow that's the longest cycle I have ever had. Crossing my fingers he will give me clomid! I went to see him the month before I got pregnant with Olivia and even though we hadn't been trying more than a month or two he prescribed it for me no questions asked. I never had to take it because I got pregnant on my own that cycle but it gives me hope that he will be open to doing it again.
I use the Clear Blue smiley face digitals because I hate trying to interpret OPKs. I only use OPKs because my RE makes me and I've NEVER gotten a positive. However, my RE wants me to test with second morning urine, and I guess I didn't read closely enough that FMU is recommended. Wonder if that makes that much of a difference?
Wow Karen that's awesome!!!!
I suppose I will stop posting in here since I'm no longer TTC! You guys will have to find a new volunteer to do the April Testers thread too! good luck ALL OF YOU!!!!!!
Perfect Jen thank you!!
I can tell my body is getting ready to O so do I wait or do I DTD??? I'm so torn. I wish I could just make a decision!!
