Do you guys think this opk is positive yet? Both were taken this morning, before noon. It's not the blazing positive I had last month, but they seem about equal to me.

Becca, you are so strong for going through all of this with such a great attitude!

I would definitely call that a positive.

It's probably nothing , but I have been SO thirsty today. I can't get enough water, and I wasn't feeling my coffee this morning (normally I always have one cup, this was only 1/2 cup).

To those of you not on the north east coast of the US... enjoy your weather lol. We are at a stand still. Every where is closed and schools are closed tomorrow as well. If you look at the picture, just beyond that trash can is one of my cars (a neon and the vue behind it is also mine) and you can see the neons window outline. It's buried. And the snow isn't done. As for me, my flu symptoms are almost gone, I'm just sweaty.

Kathryn, I'd call those positive! Thank​ you for your kind words!

Maggie, I could never get enough to drink when I was pregnant with Henry. I can't remember when it set in, but pretty early on. ;)

Bre, wow that's a lot of snow! I'm glad you're starting to feel better. Being sick is the worst. Stay warm!

AFM, I finally got my blood drawn this afternoon, so I should have an answer tomorrow. I was feeling pretty confident all was well, but yesterday morning I felt kind of nauseous, then this morning again, but worse. I ended up throwing up 3 times in a 45 minute span. I was babysitting and so I took a zofran I had leftover from my last pregnancy just so I could function. I still felt nauseous most of the day, but didn't throw up again. I felt better after dinner tonight.
It certainly feels like morning sickness, but it makes no sense. If my hcg was 7 a week ago, even if there is retained tissue causing it to go up, it would be nearly impossible for it to go up enough to make me sick. That makes me worry about other problems, like an ectopic pregnancy.

Fingers crossed it was just a weird coincidence and my levels will be normal tomorrow!

Hi Becca! I'm glad you got your blood drawn, finally! Let us know what happens there!

Bre, I'm in west central Indiana, and we were supposed to get hit with snow, but it's only really been COLD and we've gotten a light dusting. My SIL and her boys just came down with the flu, so I hope you guys all get better quickly.

AFM: Still super thirsty, I was put off my coffee again this morning, but I think that's because I put too much milk in it, and as I was getting dressed, my breast felt full? Idk how to describe it, but it was only my right one again. Lol. No other breast sensitivity. I DD'd for DH last night for his birthday and we didn't get home until 11:30, but he wanted to stay up to talk. I didn't get to sleep until I'm sure past 12:30. No makeup and dog tired this morning. The alarm clock was my enemy today.

How are you other ladies doing today?

Ok so I accidentally woke up a hour past my regular temp time. Becca or anyone, do you use online bbt adjusters? How reliable do you think those are?
I use this site,what do you think?

Taylor, they vary in reliability from person to person, just because everyone is different. I used to use them on nearly every temp because I couldn't ever temp at the same time. I came to realize that for me, though, my temps didn't change as much as the adjuster changed it. So the last cycle and this one I've just tried to temp within about an hour of usual and not adjust it.

Yay for the blood test Becca!! Let us know when you get the results!


Well ladies..I'm 14 DPO and things are looking semi-promising for me this morning! AF is a no show so far (she's due today) and no spotting since the evening of 12 dpo- I ALWAYS ALWAYS spot leading up to AF, so the fact my spotting has stopped is major for me- plus no AF type cramps. The only negative thing was this morning my temp dropped back down, but I decided to test anyways...

I took a wondfo with FMU and saw something forming within the time limit- but again so so faint! And it dried into a line. So I took a second wondfo with the same urine sample.. see below.. I think they both have faint lines?!

This pic has both tests from this morning, bottom test us still wet. Top pic is unedited, bottom is inverted..

Ok so IF my temp this morning was accurate it spiked a little this morning and hopefully it's the start of a triphasic pattern :)

Veronica I totally see a line on the top inverted one!

That's looking like the start of a triphasic pattern, mama bear!

I also took a First Signal test with the same urine.. didn't really see anything but figured it probably just wasn't as sensitive as the wondfo's. BUT I think I see something on that test too!! Here are all of the tests dried..

Eek, so much good stuff going on this morning! Veronica, I see those hints and I hope they turn into an undeniable BFP! I will warn you that the first signal tests are known for leaving evaps. Mine was a clear line after it dried and I wasn't pregnant that cycle. That being said, I have high hopes for you as I am seeing something on all of those!

Taylor, that temp looks great! Even if it's not 100% accurate, it would still be right up there with the rest of your temps, so things are looking good!

AFM... Just spoke to the nurse and HCG is less than 2. I got a little teary when she told me. Oddly, they were happy tears, though. IT'S OVER! Now I just have to wait for my body to get back into the swing of things. I'm feeling so relieved, and oddly confident. This next one is going to stick!

Oh, I also now know that my non-pregnant HCG is super low. I always assumed it would be higher since I get my bfp's pretty early. I never got betas drawn with Henry, so I have no idea what my legs were like, but I'm assuming I have a very high doubling rate to see positives on 9dpo starting from basically nothing.

Yay for your HCG being back to normal Becca!! It's a officially a fresh new start for you!

It's funny you mention your HCG starting levels... remember how low mine was at 7 DPO? And how I said I would be getting a very very late BFP? Lol. I think it's actually happening!

The top two tests are "Evaps" from the past couple of days.. the bottom two tests are this morning's tests. They shouldn't be getting darker if they weren't the real deal right?!! Ughhh I just wish I knew for sure! I'm going to test again in about 20 min with a 4 hour hold (i haven't had any liquids at all).
