Hello ladies, I'm still here lol, I had a couple of crazy work days and took Thursday and Friday to spend with my DH and DS which was absolutely wonderful. As my DH works on weekends and takes care of DS during the week and I work during the week and take care of DS on weekends, I love taking time off to spend as a family. We had a fabulous time just doing yard work and going to on our favourite nature walk when the birds will fly down and eat seed right out of your hand!

Welcome Jenni and Stat, it is so nice to build up our forum again!

Nice to see you back Rockysmom even though you had a BFN, we are still there cheering you on!

ER,any new news?

Luvsdogs that is a great approach this cycle, I hope it turns not a BFP

AFM, well I was really hyped about this cycle and the fate thing by this morning my temp dropped and I started feeling PMS cramps. I think im out this cycle but I am trying not to be too disappointed. I know I'll fall not that BFN depression for a couple of days when AF arrives eventhough I am trying not too. I went to my family doctor's on Thursday for a physical and I got bloodwork to test my thyroid (ill send the results to my fertility naturopath next week).

TTC: thx for the welcome! I am now 8dpo today if "My Days" is on target again. I slept a LOT yesterday afternoon, but I did have ONE beer at abt 3:00 pm- and it was horrible tasting and flat! I felt today like my brain was in a fog and the bb's are still have a sense of dull tenderness... crampy a smidge off and on and some more brown discharge in my undies. I am holding off buying even the Dollar Tree tests cuz I just don't wanna face a BFN and guess I luv torturing myself with the "what ifs" right now! lol. I only had symptoms this early on after OV when I was doing crinone supps after IUI cycles, so if this is alllll just PMS- it is very weird!

Hey girlies!!!

Just stopping in to say HI!!! Welcome new ladies...glad you are here! Always nice to have new people to converse with during the entire month! HOLIDAY bfp's for everyone would be AWESOME!!! Just skimmed thru posts...you girls do have some wonderful symptoms. Sorry about the af witch :(. Hate her! One good thing about holidays...keeps everyone busy and makes this time a little easier just because you are so preoccupied with other things.

AFM...well, we did have u/s a week ago tomorrow. We did see hb! They could not hear it because they said it had just started?? They have me dating 9days behind where I am. That truly made me NERVOUS! However, the doc said not to worry about it because it is a human measuring and the important part is they saw the heartbeat. We have a repeat u/s on Thursday and we meet our new OB on thurs. Hope she is a perfect fit or we will have big decisons to make..choosing another one that is far away and doesn't deliver at the hospital we want to deliver at :(. Will update after u/s!

Take care fabulous ladies. FX for all of you!!

Good for you ER! Keeping yourself busy while TTC is always good. If you do get pregnant than that would be a great trade off don't you think?

AfM I am still having period like cramps like I am going to get AF any minute, I even have to go to the bathroom to see if AF arrived because I am having discharge but no AF. I am 14DPO and my Luteal phase is 15 days so ill hold out until Wednesday before I test again. It is weird I only cramp 12 to 24 hours prior to AF but this has been going on for 3 days and still no AF. My temp dipped a bit but it is still high if I dip another 0.2 C I know I will be out.

I'm getting less hopeful...Monday was 9dpo and the sxs seemed to bd subsiding when I thought they would intensify if anything was perking in there! lower ab cramps barely there and bb tenderness barely noticeable. By evening time there was a light brown/ tan discharge in my undies, but that wasn't enough to lift my spirits... I guess I should just bite the bullet an test Tues or Wed, but I was so enjoying the "what ifs"... :-(

Hi Ladies:

Just popped in to say hi! If you remember, DH had a potentially medical scare but he has since checked out OK so onward and onward! We were caught up in the superstorm Sandy mess (we live in NJ) so we were without power and heat for 8 days and are now dealing with the damage (not major) to our home. We will likely begin ttc again next month as I will be out of town during our fertile week this month. Hello to all the new ladies and good luck to all my "old" friends. I will check back in again from time to time. Good luck everyone!

Tiff - no worries about the heartbeat. You will hear it next time for sure!

Ttc and Stathumluvr- good luck with testing in the am! I won't be able to check in until after work. :goodluck2:

ER- I O consistently on cd 17 so I have a bit yet. I wish I felt o pains or could tell a diff in cm or just anything! Cm hasn't been a reliable sign for a long time for me so I don't bother checking anymore. I usually don't get ewcm,anymore. I will start charting next month.

Tiff- the only bummer about getting an u/s early is that sometimes you just can't get the heartbeat recorded. I am sure it will be just great!

Shanessa- glad DH is ok and you can proceed to TTc! GL next month!

Jenni and second chance how are you gals?

ER - don't you just hate those cycles .... you BD according to your normal O date and it gets all messed up because you surged early or you think you'll be late so you hold off on BD and than it is on time ... oh TTC in your 40's is NEVER boring!

Shanessa - I am so glad your DH is doing better and the medical scare if over with. At times like this you are thankful for your helath and family and what you have. I'm sorry to here that you got caught up in Sandy, I hope all fairs well. Looking forward to hearing from you regularly next month!

Tiff - try not to stress too much about "9 days behind" ... every pregnancy and child is different .... they had me 2 weeks ahead but that was impossible because they did my cycle monitoring and IUI at the same clinic where my OB GYN was! :doh: Try to relax and enjoy the pregnancy, this is what we are all striving for, you made it now try to enjoy! Plus you seen the HB that is what counts.

Statham - baby dust to you and your test!

Luvdogs - have you O'd yet?

AFM - I broke down and tested this morning and got a BFN but my temperature shot up this morning and I did wake up hot so I dont know what my body is doing but I don't feel pregnant and some of my sxs could be from PMS or the progesterone. I think I'm out but my TTC brain is in denial and keeps giving me reasons to still have hope. I'll wait for AF today or tommorrow, if she doesn't come by Friday, I'll test again but really I am 16DPO today and my luteal phase is 15 days so if all is still working correctly AF SHOULD be here today. Oh the joys of TTC :?

Well, at approx. 8:40 am on my 11dpo this morning I did poas and got a BFN. Big let down after all the excitement of all the "symptoms". Guess I should not be surprised since pretty much all the sxs disappeared by last night. Today, I hv very mild cramps, but AF is due on 11/19. I guess I'll save my second Dollar Tree test in case AF is late, but I'm pretty much out of hope now. :-(. Good luck to all the rest of ya!!

OMG! I just woke up to go pee and when I wiped I saw blood on the to and then cramps popped up out of nowhere! Seriously AF??? 3-4 days EARLY???? She really IS a witch!! I can't believe this after she was EXACTLY on times last month and close to it the month before!! I was half asleep in s bathroom lit by a nightlight, so I couldn't see how red the blood was on the tp, but I was PI**ED OFF when I saw it cuz just seemed like a slap in the face!!!
