Willow-You testing today?

Hawkeye-I hope that you and your husband are finding the time to grieve! I know that family and friends mean well and want to be there to support you, but understand the need to have some alone time!

Everybody - Hello!! My boss is in town and things are hectic here, please forgive the limited personal's.

AFM-AF is due today or tomorrow. I tested at 12DPO and BFN so I'm out. Had a weird temp rise today although I expected it to start going down...not sure what that is about. If no AF tomorrow then I'll test again, but I fully expect her to show.

Also...I wanted to share my fortune from this weekend.

Julie, that is the best fortune ever! Your temps still look great, you should definitely test tomorrow morning if you don't have a temp drop. I have seen ladies get BFNs at 12dpo and then get a BFP at 13 or 14dpo, you are still not out!

Willow-I got that fortune and have clung to it for dear life! Them my temps have stayed and I'm getting myself all worked up. Unfortunately, I've been, way too many times, let down. Can't wait for tomorrow! I only hope I'll be able to sleep tonight!

Thanks for the new thread, Julie. I agree - your chart looks so good, and that fortune is great! I love getting little signs like that. Just for the sake of honesty though, I'll warn you that sometimes you can get a progesterone surge just before AF which can cause your temp to jump. I've had it happen to me before - it's another mean trick that our bodies can play on us. I hope that isn't the case for you, of course, but I just wanted to let you know.

I tested yesterday and today - just BFNs so far, but I'm only 9dpo...so there's still a couple of days to hold out hope.

Meggola-You still have lots of time to your BFP! I was told over the chart stalkers thread that my rise may be a pre-AF rise, so I'm prepared!

Michele-I'm not holding out hope for tomorrow, but I'll post here for sure!!


Everybody- :hi:

Oh wow, I didn't know that! You ladies are so full of great knowledge! I hope that's not the case for you, Julie.

sorry for the bfn meg - you still have several days that it could still happen though, so my fingers are crossed!

I wanted to start testing tomorrow (7DPO), but my good pink cassette tests (the one's that gave me a 7DPO bfp with our last little girl) have not arrived yet. I ordered them almost a month ago :? so I'm not holding out hope in getting a positive on any of the other tests I have at 7DPO. I'll probably wait until 8DPO to start testing.

Julie: What an awesome fortune! I'm really hoping that temp spike is a good thing. :fingersx:

willow: Good luck testing!

meggola: It's definitely still early! :luck:

michele: Dang, you would think they'd be here after a month. Good luck testing.

AFM, I finally had a day to relax yesterday. It was such a relief. DH and I just sat around in pjs watching football, got a nap and everything. Today we went truck shopping. DH had just sold his the Monday before everything happened b/c his old truck was too small to fit a carseat in the back (we're both pretty tall and couldn't move the seats up far enough). Honestly, I was kind of glad to see the old truck go, but I know that DH was pretty bummed about getting rid of it. He seems excited about one we test drove today so hopefully things will work out so that he can get it this week.

Michele-good luck with the testing! FX!

Hawkeye-wow! A new truck! I always love getting new vehicles!

AFM-As you will see, my temp took the expected nose dive. I knew it was coming so I'm not shocked or overly disappointed since I had prepared myself for it. Just waiting for AF to hurry up and get here. This next cycle will be strictly Gonal-F and the deciding factor in whether or not my RE keeps me or terminates treatment. Sigh....

boo for the nosedive, Julie! I was really rootin for it to stay up! I'm sorry. I hope next month is your month!

Hawkeye - good luck truck buying - I hope you get a great deal! It has to be a little bittersweet.

AFM - I tested with an ic, and of course it's bfn at 7DPO...why do I do this to myself, lol! :roll:

Hawkeye--I'm so glad you and DH got some time to yourselves. I hope everything works out with the new truck.

Julie--I'm sorry about the temp drop. FX for you next month. Keep believing that fortune!

Michele and Meggola--hope those tests turn positive in the next few days!

AFM, I tested this morning and, BFP. I had a good feeling this month, but I still can't believe it! I already went in for betas and my level was 99.9, which is good. So back on Thursday for repeat betas. I am both nervous and excited as I am sure you can all understand.

:jump: Congrats willow!!! :jump: That's a great first beta!

Julie - Sorry about the temp drop. Glad to hear the ladies in Chart Stalkers are giving you good advice and info. I've relied on them many times and they've always come through. I hope this next cycle works out for you!

michele - Sorry about the BFN. I bet you'll be getting a BFP soon!

Hawkeye - I'm so glad you got to relax and hang out in your pjs. It's a very therapeutic thing to do, you know. I'm sorry DH had to sell his truck - I hope he enjoys the retail therapy of shopping for a new one though.

Not much to report from me. Didn't test today, but I will tomorrow morning. I only have two wondfos left! Gotta make them last!
