emmsmom - Sorry to hear about AF :( At least she didn't keep you waiting several days past when she was due. FX for a BFP next month!

Update for me: 14DPO. Small amounts of brown spotting continues (started at 11DPO). AF due tomorrow. I took a test this morning, and after 5 mins it looked negative so I went and took my shower. When I got out, I looked again, and I thought I saw a faint line. Not sure if I can trust that though, since it was more than 5 mins later. :?

I plan to keep POAS until I get a definite BFP or AF arrives!

Emmsmom - so sorry. Always a bummer. The way I look at an early period is less agony and now you can try 2 days earlier next month! Hope that helps... :hugs:

Chall - keep us posted! I love that we are now getting into the days on this thread where any morning I can wake up to read it and get hit with some BFP news! :baby tumble:

noreenc wrote:Mine never hurt for AF. In fact, the only symptom I get like clockwork and have ever had with AF is lower back/abdominal cramps and that's it. She's here for 4 days and she's gone. That's why I was looking for something out of the ordinary for this month bc that's all I had over the last few weeks and I was like, "I never get sore BB's or nausea hope I get that..!" Of course I did not.... :cry:

Yeah, I am the same way. I get cramps, a zit or two, and the runs as symptoms, every month, the day before like clockwork, AF for 4 days super heavy, and then gone. I'm really hoping the cramping, nausea, and fatigue I have had the past week isn't simply a sign of a super nasty AF on her way because of the HSG. Though, that would be my luck =(.

Afraid I will have to disappoint you tryingnottoobsess... BFNs last night and this morning, and a big temp drop this morning. AF hasn't technically appeared, but looks like she is imminent. :(

Well, I caved this morning and got a solid BFN :mad:

I'm 11DPO and AF isn't due until probably Wednesday...but I feel pretty certain that AF is coming. Feeling my typical PMS crap. I will likely be moving on to cycle 4 and crossing fingers for a Christmas baby!

Chall when is your AF actually due?

Af is due today. But she still hasn't shown. What the heck? Still just a small amount of brown spotting, only when I wipe. So I've had 4 days of this brown spotting stuff, and still no AF.

BFN for me today too. Still feel super disgusting and nauseous all the damn time =(. I can't even tell if I am getting AF symptoms, as I've had AF like symptoms since 3-4 days after O =(. So just gotta wait it out till the 14th-ish

Actually take that back. BFN for me yesterday, just POAS tonight and a super faint positive that even DH could see. So that's 2 super faint BFP (one pink one blue) and one BFN on a pink. Not trying to get my hopes up, so just waiting for AF at this point. Will probably POAs every day until she shows her ugly head.

I'm out as well. AF started today. Either way, super stoked to even have a chemical, since I've never had a BFP ever. Here's to the end of this month =D

Sorry, radkitten! But that's a really great way of looking at it. I often think that I'd be slightly relieved if I had a chemical...just to know something was "clicking" in there. Of course I'd prefer to just get pregnant, lol...but as someone who has never been PG, I totally get where you are coming from.

I'm still expecting AF...probably Wednesday. I will probably still POAS in the morning just for kicks. Btw, had a $10 coupon for CVS so I got a box of 2 First response tests for $6.75...BOOM. Won't feel bad if I "piss" through that box in the next 2 days!!! :mrgreen:

Yeah, for me it's my first sign in 6+ years that something is "working". It's thoughts like that that really keep me going. A chemical is totally a good sign to me :D!
