Oh one thing I did forget to mention is that I’m having stomach issues...diarrahea. I haven’t gone yet because I’m stuck at work but I know it’s coming. I ate last night around 6 and all of a sudden while at work I could feel it. It could’ve been something I ate which is what I’m thinking.

Oh god not the FRER lol I just used the one to *make sure* the other day and Im saving the other one for when I beat the control line on something. Ive been using the cheapies as well as the super cheap walmart tests. 88 cents a test! Cant beat that haha Patrick thinks im nuts for still testing but its putting my anxiety at ease a little so im keeping it up!

If I remember right, I think I had diarrhea the cycle of my chemical so it could be something.

Girls- we did not have a chance to tell the in-laws this weekend- either they were tied up with something or we were :/ and trying to find a time when the kids aren't around is tricky haha. So hopefully soon!

On the FRER I beat the control at 15dpo, on cheapies I think it was 20?

Isabel- I wouldn't count yourself out- sometimes stomach issues can be a sign!

Well ladies, I’m getting my normal af cramps I get a couple days before af. I’m getting stomach cramps and my cm is starting to dry up. Also my boobs are sore which is an af symptom for me. So I’m about 95% sure af will be here in a couple days.

Lynsey I think as long as you are still having pregnancy symptoms and your lines are getting darker you have nothing to worry about.

Kat aww man that sucks. Now you have to wait even longer. That’s the worst especially when it’s news like this. I know it’s gonna be hard to keep my mouth shut lol.

Oh man thats so disappointing Kat! I dont know why I thought it would take longer to beat the control on the FRER than the cheapies. Im veryyyyyyy close to beating it on the cheapie so maybe I'll try the FRER tomorrow. Tomorrow is 17DPO.

Im still keeping my fingers crossed for you Isabel!

So this morning I had the most ‘symptoms’ I ever had. I woke up with a headache stuffy nose nauseous and I somehow left my pee cup out on the bathroom counter. Josh was a minute away from seeing it lol. I was really hopeful for the first time only to see a bfn. So I’m thinking the progesterone has something to do with it. At 11dpo I’m not feeling very hopeful. Now my negatives seem very accurate.

In my case, progesterone has a gradual effect. Taking it from 1dpo until 14dpo, the effects start to build up @7 or 8 dpo... I could barely stand myself at 14 dpo and was super depressed. On "regular cycles" (although I am not quite sure about what normal and what isn't anymore), I barely had any PMS symptoms.

Geeky that seems like what’s happening with me. I started it at 3dpo and today is 11dpo and it’s definately doing something. I’m going to use the cream again tomorrow and if I get a bfn at 13dpo I’ll stop using it so af can come.

Ugh my stomach is acting up again. I’ll be fine one minute then the next I have to go. It has to be a side effect from the progesterone definitely not something I ate. This time it happened in the evening. I’ll have to start googling lol.

I am sorry your stomach is off Isabel, I don't know much about the progesterone cream. I wish o could be more helpful!

Lynsey- I still feel pretty much the same haha, 9 weeks today. I feel like I am getting used to all the water I am drinking because I don't feel like I have to go as much (thank god). Still have some lingering all day nausea but he past day or 2 it seems to be easing up a little. Sore bb's, exhausted etc.i am hopeful over the next few weeks some of these things tone down a little as the placenta takes over- but only time will tell :) other than the constant peeing, how are You feeling?!

So tested this morning with a frer and bfn so I’m stopping the cream and hopefully af will be here tomorrow. I’ve had an lp of 13 and I don’t want to delay af. I’m just glad next cycle I won’t have to deal with the cream. I have prometrium pills for next cycle. I have to start taking them cd17 if I’ve ovulated already.

Lynsey have you taken your last frer and beat the control line?

Kay I’m glad your nausea is easing up some!
