Star - I am so sorry you're feeling this way! I really hope everything goes well, even with the Zika preventative measures being no fun. Please let us know how your US goes! I am just in school for my 2 year degree. I dropped out in 11th grade to go to work to support the family, even though I had full academic scholarship offers to several big schools. It was always a thorn in my side even though I got my GED. I am on track to graduate summa cum laude, and I got accepted as a transfer to the University of Colorado but I don't want any student loan debt, so I will only complete a bachelor's if I get enough grant/scholarship money to cover it. We'll see how that goes! I get the Pell grant since I am the first in my family with a college education, but it isn't a whole lot when you're looking at the total cost. :shock:

Sms - your chart is looking fabulous!! Can't wait for tests!

Katy - Super happy you're on a fresh cycle! Mine have been horrific since Ciaran lol - we're talking changing of the pants and underwear 3-4 times a day for the first 2 days. :shock: Hopefully your body is nice to you!
I never used softcups but I think you're supposed to use them right after BD and leave it in for 24 hours? I haven't been using supplements this time, just taking my regular prenatal vitamin, b-complex, calcium, and omegas. How many OPKs do you have? You may O at your "normal" time and you may not. My O window has changed by 5 days since Ciaran!

Lindsey -- was planning on continuing my regular vitamin and omegas. I added folic acid, RRL EPO and Vitex (just to help normalize cycle) and cq10 for egg quality (because it was half off at my GNC haha). I had originally not planned on doing anything but add folic acid, but the length of my last cycle scared me into adding the others to try to get my hormones straight

I used soft cups with AD-- but mainly so I could morning BD and go about my day without lying there haha. I doubt I order this time around, unless its been a few months--- but I think that I may still have some, I should check!!


I do have a ton of OPKs and will likely order some more pregnancy tests for a few weeks from now!

Fingers crossed. Back in this mad game again!

Sounds excellent!! If I don't get my BFP this go around I will likely order RRL again.

I went through 40 OPKs trying to figure out when I was going to O each cycle lol, now that it seems to be pretty regular, I still start using them early but only 1-2 a day until they start getting darker. Good thing the clinical guard ones are $11 with free shipping for 50 OPKS!

My hands are way too small for softcups ... I couldn't even get a NuvaRing out back in the day. :rofl:

Hey Ladies,

Katy, boo for AF, but I hope your cycle levels out and isn't too bad. It didn't take long for my cycles to regulate and I didn't do anything crazy after, but I'm not sure how normal that is.

Linds, Fingers crossed, maybe this will be the cycle!!!

I'm 7dpo, I so desperately want to test, but know it would be stupid. I'm holding out for Friday. Also little guy has an ear infection again and we have to go see an ENT now about tubes. Not looking forward to this. I was holding out for as long as I could, but it isn't fair to him. Also think I got his cold as I'm sneezing and congested and just feel pretty icky. Maybe it's a side effect, but don't know. Only other thing I know is that lying on my right side is uncomfortable and I'm assuming thats the side the egg was on. Fingers crossed though, I just keep telling myself I'm pregnant and I'm going to have a healthy baby from this :)

Steph -- hope he feels better soon! Poor guy! And I don't know if you are pregnant, but I do think your chart is AMAZING!!

AFM: day 2 and y'all I forgot how tired you get on the first day of period. I BARELY made it through yesterday but feel much better today. Ready to get this show on the road! Hoping for an earlier O!

Omg. Ladies.

On dec 1, I had my beta done, and my progesterone and antibodies done.... well, guess what... it came back. Not pregnant. Less than one. Not at all pregnant, actually close to ovulation.

So major panic attack.

So I run tears and all and get a digital to believe it to see it. And guess what, it was flipping positive. I run back to get two more tests ... all positive.

What a nightmare

So I called the OB to argue with them on why I’m pregnant. They essentially didn’t believe me and begrudgently ordered another lab test. I went to a different lab. I’m pending the results tomorrow and this is so hard. Although, I feel very pregnant so chin up. Isn’t that insane??? Who has ever had a negative blood test and a positive hcg???

Maybe some how they got mixed or that the wrong test was done?

Crazy...im surprised they didn't have you per on a stick too. Well hopefully the results are positive this time.

So yeah I broke down....thoughts???? also I plan on a FRER tomorrow. This was the best with my phone and compressing. I'm so awful at this.

Star - It's possible your LH is super elevated and making your pregnancy tests positive, but it's also possible that they screwed up at the lab. PLEASE keep us posted! Ugh I can't even imagine how crazy this is making you! :hugs:

Sms - I definitely see a line! It looks grayish but I see it! Can't wait for tomorrow's test!

Hi everybody else!

I got a blazer of a positive OPK and then a temp rise this morning, but we are getting one more BD in just in case!

Ok, so still hard to see, but it's still early. I took a digital clear blue which said Not pregnant, but I'm thinking they're not as sensitive as the FRER? I used to have a chart that had the different levels, but can't find it anymore.

In person I can see the lines better then what is on the images I'm uploading and they do have color. I can't figure out how to change my phone to get better pictures. Or maybe it's just my bathroom :rofl:

Yay for O Linds!!!! We did the same. I'm hoping tomorrow's test is more pronounced. :D

I totally see that Steph, not even a squinter. Its light, so probably still under 25 hcg (which is what I think is necessary for the "pregnant" test) Keep posting pics. Praying for a sticky bean!


AFM-- CD4 over here. AF is exiting -- surprisingly not a bad period which worries me that maybe lining has not thickened up since the IUD. Considering calling for a progesterone prescription from my doctor. Last pregnancy (Anne Douglas), I started progesterone after ovulation and I think it helped. It could totally not have helped but I stayed pregnant after a MC or 2 Cps so I hesitate not using it again.
