Yes, spotting is very exciting I think! I'm supposed to test Monday if I can hold off.

Just checked out this thread! Best of luck to you Cyndi, sorry about your loss.

Wanted to share my mom's story with you for inspiration. She had my bro and I a few years apart when she was young. She didn't get pg again until 37:

37 - *loss and then* PG baby sis # 1 (Lexi)
39 - *loss and then* PG baby sis #2 (Rissa)
42 - PG baby sis #3!!!! (Kyra, although I call her Kyraboo)

:) Got tubes tied after Kyra, she was a BIG surprise.

Best of luck to you and I hope you get the BFP!!!!

oh cyndi...I'll be holding off on the testing. If AF doesn't come tomorrow, I'll be surprised. BUT...

I like to make myself feel better by finding charts that look like mine that ended in BFP.
This lucky lady (in green) ALSO ovulated on day 16...had similar temps (just shifted about .2 above me)...had a negative BFP at 15dpo...GOT HER BFP at 17DPO!
There's still hope, right? (my chart is overlaying hers for your viewing pleasure.)

I love it! I spend hours looking at my own charts, trying to make sense of my current one. O_O

In other news, im caving and testing in thr morning. I feel so nauseous and have that awful taste in my mouth. Last time, I didnt feel like this until 12 dpo when I got a faint bfp.. I'm hoping that the sooner/stronger feeling means a pink line. I told dh to get the tests on his way home.

What a tease to get to 31 days and bfn? That's not fair!
I'm so tired of this cycle.I'm not sure we have a decent chance because we were all sick at o time. Also, I went poas crazy and tested TWICE this morning even though the first was stark white. :doh:

Nothing too amazing. I had an ovarian cyst removed last Oct, instead of going back on BC we decided it was time to start trying.

Together 9 yrs, on BC for 12 yrs, just bought a house a year ago, and my job stability increased with a new position (tech in SanFran)... Started OPK's this cycle, got my first real ovulation pain since before getting on BC. I had almost forgotten what it felt like. This cycle I also took Soy Isoflavones and am continuing with a little bit of progesterone cream twice a day on forearms, with B6, omega 3, prenatal and CoQ10 started mid last cycle.

I am 5dpo today with cramps, trying not to read too much into anything, but things seem different this cycle (starting with intense O pain). Been pretty quite up until today, for now chalking it up to hormones and the cream.

Like I said before, my mom had many pregnancies and losses (as did G'ma). The last few I was much, Much older and I helped out with the PGcies, and birthing. However, she never had to do much work in ttc, and was never on BC except for one shot after my bro (however after that shot she did not conceive for 13 years despite not using protection within that relationship). This site helps calm my obsession, I shall not POAS until this Sat at at least 10dpo lol

oh, i've promised myself no POAS before. sometime I hold out...other times I fail miserably.
Best of luck there!

yes, she came. I hate that i went to 31 days when I have had 7 straight months of 28. frustrating. and a tease.

I have an appointment on Friday with the gyn. curious what he'll say this time.
