I'm doing well. Just returned from a quick trip to my hometown Miami.
Waiting to O !! Had some mixed cm today (creamy with ew) so hopefully I'll O soon. Temps are still at normal level. No drops or raises past a couple degrees.
Should be soon ! Just BDing as usual lol

Wowwwww, that sucks Casey!!!! Sorry to heat that :-( I hope you're better soon! Creativity is always fun.... or funny lol.

For me last night was CrAzY!!! I still had some mild lower abdomen pain, nausea, was achy, sleepy and had to lay down ALL day. Later in the evening I had a 99.6 fever and tossed and turned all night with body aches. Then this morning I was fine, fever gone! The abdomen pain is gone and I'm just super bloated with little energy. Crazy I tell ya! Also a BFN this morning.

Womp womp! Am I still in this?? :doh:

Hello Casey and thank you for the reply, sorry to hear that and hope you'll get well soon :) I did yesterday on a first response and I don't know if it is only in my head or there is a Really Really faint line Lol. My breasts are not sore anymore and I spotted today as well but also just one spot (brownish/yellowish). Another strange thing is that for the past 4 days I woke up at 3;30-4:30 AM and I couldn't go back to sleep! I want to test tmr again but I am a little scared :( my AF should come Friday and perhaps is better to wait until then.P.S: I'm struggling not to buy the tweek app to see if there's a faint line there lol

Hi, ladies!

Welcome, Loredana! FX for you! And... there's an app for THAT??! LOL! If you can hold out until Friday/Saturday and not test until then, do that - especially if you feel like getting a (perhaps false) BFN will upset you. If you're fine with the possible BFN (because you would be testing early, some women get their BFP when they're a week or so late), then go ahead and POAS.

So sorry to hear about your leg, Casey! Being creative spices things up BD-wise, huh! :) FX you'll feel better soon.

BabyJayne, it sounds like you'll O soon! FX you catch that egg!

MrsLun, you're not out until AF shows! Any chance it could've been late implantation?


AFM, I may be getting into trouble with SMEP because I keep getting negative OPKs (and am slowly running out of them) AND hubby will be partying this weekend with some of his friends so he won't be around if I ovulate during the weekend. :( I wonder what's going on with my cycle. I should've Oed by now.

Anyway, FX for all of us!

Hi and thanks for the reply,

Of course I did Poas (FRER) and it looks BFN so probably AF should come soon!
Wakasa I had a problem detecting my O day as well, based on my CM was around 12th June but FF app says it was in 18th which is odd since my AF is due tmr..what Opk do you use? I used opks once about 3 months ago but they were so expensive(Clear blue)

Hi Loredana!

It isn't over until AF shows!!!!

I use some internet cheapies, I think they came from China. They basically came in a zip-lock bag with a bunch of HPTs and printed out instructions.

I don't know if I'll use OPKs after this cycle, it's sooooo frustrating!

I think you if you can establish a pattern and see around what cd is your O day you don't need them any longer..CM is the best thing that you can rely on..I just bought 2 more tests for the weekend and that's it!!:)) if not, for my next cycle I am armed with Mucinex, Geritol and Raspberry leaf tea:))

Any news ladies? Symptom spotting? Is anyone close to POAS yet? There hasn't been enough BFPs lately. I hope this is the month for everyone!

I'm pretty sure I O'ed yesterday. I didn't temp or opk or anything because of the leg sitch, but we still BD'ed a few times this week. So there's a chance! Not getting any hopes up, but I'm sure you know that goes!

Hi!

I'm 4DPO I think. Slight cramps now and then, but they could be anything and/or imaginary. :mrgreen: But it appears I got some kind of tonsillitis, ugh. I don't have a fever and my throat isn't in pain, so I think I'll just wait and see if it goes away on its own.

Hang in there, BabyJayne!

FX for casey, hope you caught that egg!

How's everyone else?

Hello,

I am on CD8 so I am waiting for my O day, all those symptoms last month and nothing..AF came right on time :(...I started temping and we'll see how this goes..I am coughing a little bit so I wonder if I can take Mucinex ( also heard that it helps your CM) but not sure if I'll do that. Hope everybody is ok and I am wishing u all baby dust and happy 4th of July:)

When are you ladies going to test? Are you early testers or hold off pros?

I didn't take any HPTs with me to the summer cottage, so I have to hold off (on testing AND buying a new test while we're here), LOL!

Happy 4th to all the Americans. :)
