Hmmm. It's a shadow, but I can definitely see what you're looking at. Not on the top photo as much as the invert. So exciting. Fingers crossed!

Found a cheapie. This showed up in time limit but did not take the pic until later. I'm the kind of person who has to have more solid proof, like two distinct lines lol.

Hi guys! I turned 40 right after Christmas and this is our first month of trying for #3. My youngest son just turned 4 and I have an almost-8 year old, so I think the fact that they're growing up has set off my biological clock one last time! ;)
I am currently 5DPO and waiting to test next week.
I'm looking forward to following all your stories and hope everyone gets their dream baby soon!

Hi thirdnerd (love your name btw lol). :D

Hope you get your BFP this cycle (hope we all do actually).

I'm doing a hold currently, will poas in two hours. I ordered some more FRER yesterday and they will be here today. I will stop taking my progesterone in four days, so hope something shows before then.

Well, shoot SEL. I was hoping you would get the dark lines you were looking for this morning. But it's still really early. They could definitely still get darker. The waiting is absolutely the worst.

In news from over here, witch showed up this morning. The fat lady is singing. And I'm out. It looks like we're really going to stick to the plan this time so I'm figuring out how to not be TTC anymore. I think that means I have to stay away from this board.

Good luck to everyone and thanks for the conversations!

I am sorry to hear this you guys. :( Mind you I'm not feeling as positive today. I keep thinking if I am out this month I will stay off TTC but it's so heart wrenching bc I don't have time to give up or even take a break. Uurrgghh! AF is due the 25th and maybe just maybe I'll get symptoms between now and next week. Keep your heads up!

Hi Tingham, I hear ya! It gets really deflating. My tests are now negative, no faint lines so I'm def out but I do still feel encouraged. The soft cups worked, his swimmers work but I just have to produce that good egg. Hoping that will happen next month. We only bd one time (deposit into a soft cup) and it worked so we don't have to have the crazy bonking sessions that some people have lol. Hang in there -always remember, anything can happen!!

Hi all, well AF came early so I'm out again. I was a bit more disappointed than I expected. Anyone trying next month? Idk if I am going to try or just go with the flow. All the best to you ladies!
