EBennett...so glad you had an encouraging talk with someone irl who understands...sure is nice when those doors open isn't it! I met a woman tonight and we got talking about our kids and low immunity (my toddler has an "unspecified immune deficiency")...it felt so good to share with someone who has btdt .
Laura...cmon af (lol, always so weird to root for af, lol) !!! !!!
Natalie...(me chanting) bfp bfp bfp !!!!! Everything is crossed !!!!!!!
Afm...I think black cohosh works for me...both times I've taken it I've had more than usual ewcm. I o-ed earlier than my average last time and it looks like I will this time too if my hcg levels don't interfere .
Sorry, Natalie! We will be cycle buddies. I am not excited, but am happy/relieved for the ttc break here. I'll be out visiting family for two weeks and we'll miss the window. I'm going to take a temping break as well. I can jump into it next time and hope for another may baby like my first!
EBennett... thinking of you in your "off" cycle!!
Afm...opks are getting darker . I did an fmu opk to make sure it wasn't the hcg skewing my results. The fmu opk is lighter than the smu opk (only a couple hours later so there's no way hcg went up that fast, lol). My smu opk is aaalmost + (backed it up with a digi which was -). Last night's opk was the lightest I've had the last few days so I think today's smu opk is accurate.

Today's hpt (about the same as yesterday's but definitely still darker than Thursday's): http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/...ncy-test153384
Hpt progression (Thursday, Friday, today): http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/...ncy-test153386
I had a very low temp today...took it 3x to be sure it was accurate (with my brand spankin' new bbt and my usual one...same brand). My sleep has been erratic the last few nights so I'm assuming that's the reason for the fluctuations. On a different note I think it's extremely unlikely I'm pg with a temp that low...it's the lowest one I've had since I started temping vag (we have a/c so our room is a consistent temp...no changes there).
Anyway, just analyzing and rambling "out loud" . Hoping for a +opk sometime today or early tomorrow .
Thanks ladies I know what happened regarding the vomiting---I'm just an idiot is all. I hadn't eaten in like 6 hours and since we went to a place where they like us and we're "regulars" well...they make our drinks "better". And since I don't really drink anymore except for wine occasionally, I have no real tolerance anymore. Not like that's a bad thing.
Lizzie--Sorry Maybe a break will be just the thing and when you come back you'll get that BFP!!
Jen--How you doing over there??
And...wanna see something crazy: http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/...ncy-test153446
The top test is my +hpt from this morning...I also dipped a wondfo hpt and an opk in the same fmu (dipped the opk last since I know opks can affect hpt results). The wondfo is extremely faint and the opk is neg. I dipped another wondfo and then an opk at 10:30am...opk was + (confirmed with the digi) but hpt didn't change...at all.
So I think this +opk is accurate, especially since it was with 3rd or 4th morning's pee (which was clearer than my fmu). Considering all my other fertility signs which I *never* have during pg I'm going to assume I will have a temp shift within the next couple of days.
With this morning's temp drop though I think tomorrow will be a slight increase and then a big jump on Monday but I guess I'll put the crystal ball away and see what things look like at that point
Sorry for all my over-analyzing...helps me cope
I think you're right, higher temps coming to a BBT near you!
Now Kelly, Stay away from DH!!! I hope this all gets cleared up soon for you, I am always stalking!
My temp finally rose this morning so officially in the 2ww now. And I am now officially on TTC break regardless of the cycle outcome. I'm thinking it is going be be indefinitely because I am just done TTC. I know I haven't been around too much lately and it's because this is getting to be a little much for me. I want a baby but I do not want to TTC anymore. I am going to go back to working on my weight loss and either hope that we get a miracle or maybe resume in a few months after we've had a good break. Today is our 7th anniversary and hubby is on vacation for 9 days so I am just going to relax and enjoy my time with my family. It is off to a great start since I won a trivia contest and got free tickets to the local musical theater production this week.
Hoping this is your month Rach!!! I would love to share a dd room
Dorcas - how's the spotting? Fingers crossed for implantation bleeding!!
Afm! I got crosshairs for the very first time!!! So excited!!!
I am starting an unofficial count down to my BFP....65 days and counting.....(that is IF everything goes according to schedule)
WISH ME LUCK!
Good Luck Lizzy! So exciting to have a plan in place, I know!
Jessie - Awesome about the crosshairs!
AFM - Still pretty light, maybe TMI but even overnight and after I got up there wasn't enough to drop onto the panty liner. It seemed slightly heavier this morning, so I switched from a liner to a pad just in case, but so far I haven't felt any normal period-like gushes. I do feel crappy, though. I'm trying *NOT* to run to the bathroom 20 times a day this time. Wish me luck with that.

Dorcas- that's how my weird AF was it was so light and not crampy at all... So strange and was so frustrating trying to figure out what was going on...it never got as heavy as a normal AF flow so waiting didn't help...Hoping its IB for you cause I know how it feels to run to the bathroom to check what's going on down there...
Really really hoping this is it for you...
Thanks Shanica. I really appreciate your kind words and understanding of where I'm at.
I'm 1 for 1 now with this crap. 1 = pregnancy (ended in m/c at 10 weeks) and 1 = AF and a short LP. I guess this month is the tie breaker.
I'm drafting an email to my triage nurse in the event that this is just another early AF. I need to know what's going on an fix it so that I'm not just spinning my wheels.
Dorcas, what dpo are you? I think we can forgive last months short LP but this month we stand for it!
Natalie, I'm 9dpo today, spotting started yesterday (8dpo) at like 3pm. So if this is just another short LP, it's even shorter than last month, as I started bleeding at 9dpo then.
I have had a couple of small gushes since my other post, but they haven't been enough to leave anything substantial on the pad. Oh the obsessing!
