I usually spot pinkish red the day of or the day before AF. Brown is a good sign. I am ridiculously nervous now though because I had talked myself into believing I was definitely not pregnant and now this glimmer of hope is setting me up for a hard crash and burn if AF shows up. I will be devastated if I get my hopes up now. I'm going to test Sunday morning and if I get a faint line I can feel better and less weepy about it. Haha

I know how you feel. I feel like yesterday's super faint bfp got me all worked up and I'm terrified it's going to be a big let down. I can't handle the crash. Ugh. Fx this is our cycles. We both deserve it =)

Yeah this weekend is going to feel like forever. I just want to know. We are going to a party here in an hour and it's hosted by my heavily pregnant friend and her good friend who is a baby shower crafting guru and wants to do my shower someday and so they both know we are trying and they also both know this is the weekend of truth so I feel like they may ask a lot of questions tonight and I'm nervous. But they also may be good for advice because they both have kids and the crafty lady had struggles with infertility. They may have good feelings about the spotting.

So here's my tmi for the day.....I wanted to see if there was any bit of blood up in there so I checked and my cervix felt soooooo weird. It changes all the time and I've found its not a good predicter of anything for me. However, this time it was completely flat and flush with idk the wall up there. Idk what to call that. But I couldn't feel the opening (which I always feel cuz I think it's always open) and it was soft. Not pursed out or anything. Soooo weird. No blood tho yay!!!!

Have fun at you're little house party! You're lucky to have good friends to talk through fertility stuff with. We haven't told anyone we are trying or NTNP basically. I don't want the added pressure and I like the surprise factor! I can't even begin to explain how excited I will be the day we get to tell our son. I may be more excited to tell him than my hunny hahaha

That's exactly how your cervix should be if you're pregnant!!

I woke up to full blown AF. :( done with this cycle. We are going to be NTNP while I focus on losing weight. I'm sad, but it's for the best.

Nooo Emily =( Ugh. I wanted to run this course with you! I'm so sorry. Don't lose hope tho. You'll get your bfp when you least except it. I know it!!

AFM....Still no spotting. Not even a tinge. I feel weird tho. Like a little crampy sorta on my right side. Not cramps but a weird wave of uncomfortable. I felt like really wet this morning like I was going to stand up and have af but nothing. Keep your fx for me!!

For real??? That's so weird!! Are you sure it's not just spotting? How strange. I was pretty upset this morning when I woke up and AF had arrived but I have kicked my butt in gear - bought a new yoga mat and a yoga DVD. Some hand weights and new workout clothes from Old Navy. I am dedicated to losing weight because I know that's the key to my BFP. I am otherwise a healthy person, have always had regular cycles and never had any type of infection or abnormality at all. But inn overweight. Severely now. I always struggled with it but I totally lost control the past 2 years. But not anymore. I want to lose 50 lbs before I get pregnant.

Do you have Facebook? I might not be as active on this group daily because I am going to focus more on my health and be NTNP. I'll test if my period is late but otherwise I'm not going to track anything. If I'm not pregnant by July, and if I've lost a bit of weight I am going to restart the hardcore TTC. :)

Those cramps got intense on my right side. They're still there but I couldn't handle the pain so I took some Motrin. I put in a tampon so I'll check in an hour or so. I know I'll be super upset when I get home but I'm at work so I'm dealing with it pretty well. Just sucks major balls.

I like the weight loss plan. I wanna do it too. We can help each other along. I've got a solid 30lbs I'd love to lose.

Aw there are actually quite a few people by your name on fb. Mine is Emily Louise if you can find me. The attached photo is my profile photo. Same goes for me, no mention of TTC! Haha only a select few people in my life know and they know not to mention it. :)

So has af continued for you? I feel like mine is rather normal, well I consider normal for me. It'll be done tomorrow night I'm sure. I'm gonna bite the bullet and make an app to see my OBGYN. I'm over the spotting and I need to know if it's causing problems. I don't think only 3 months of TTC constitutes saying I'm having infertility problems yet. I'm just aggravated it's not happening as quick as I wanted.

Yeah mine came back this morning. It's pretty normal now. But I have a good plan in place to lose some weight and hoping that maybe in the next couple months I'll get my BFP. We are officially NTNP. Are you NTNP too?

I haven't had much time to discuss anything with my hunny. NTNP was the plan all along but not knowing everything about my cycle was killing me so I started doing everything I could to help ya know. Him and I have briefly talked and he knows I'm planning to go to my OBGYN just to discuss and make sure everything is working properly. This month we will be for sure NTNP. Focus on getting healthier and being less obsessed with every twitch my body makes lol I will reasses after I see where my bodies at with all this.
