Lou lou - with some of my pregnancies I had no symptoms. It can happen!

Jlynns - I've heard of that, and I'm hoping it's true this time too.

Veronica - how is your weekend going?

I did take a cheap dollar tree test and it was bfn. It took forever to start to work, though, I thought it was faulty. Oh well, I expected it.

Maybe I can stop obsessing for a little bit, lol.

Hi Ladies-

I'm about 7 DPO TODAY. Not too many symptoms to note. Still some slight cramping and lower back aches. Other than that, nada! I have Internet cheapies so I tested this morning and BFN of course. Will keep you updated.. Hoping we all get our BFP's this week!!!

I hope so!

I was sick all day - nauseated and bloated. I don't know what it is! It eased up in a major way later this afternoon. I've also had sharp shooting pains through my cervix that reminded me of when I had my IUD in. I'm hoping these are good signs. :D I have this feeling I'm going to get myself psyched up and then AF will rear her ugly head on Friday.

Okay I don't really think I've ever noticed this before.. But this evening I had yellowish tinted thick cm. There was no smell or itch so I don't think it's an infection. I was reading up on it and I've read it could be a good sign or it could be nothing. Lol any thoughts?

I have heard yellow lotiony cm is a good sign! I have been looking for it for myself, but I don't seem to have much going on in that area.

Back to work today which will be a nice distraction. I had to get up in the middle of the night to use the bathroom. My rice crispies gave me heartburn. Checked my temp at school and it is 100.0 so either I am sick - or pregnant. ;)

Hi Jlynn- I also read that thick cm is a good sign- the more the better!

Crysann- Both heartburn and temp sound like great signs!! If i'm out this month I will start temping next month- hoping and praying it won't be necessary!!

As for me.. I tested this AM at 8dpo and BFN. But today I'm having cramps (mostly on my right side) and lower back aches. I seemed to have an increase in CM this morning.. will see if it continues throughout the day! I'm really thinking this month is my month!

What about you ladies... when do you all plan to test?

I only really had it last night. Guess I'll just keep track of it. I don't know when to test because I think I'm only 6dpo. I'm not really sure when af is due because I went from a 28 day cycle to a 37 day cycle last month. If I did o on cd20 like I think I did (positive opk on cd18 and bit of spotting following cramps on cd20) then I can assume af would be due roughly two weeks from then? Haha I'm so impatient and I want to test asap but I don't want that to upset me.

I am halfway through my teaching degree but I currently work as a 1:1 para in an intensive needs special education class in a high school. Our kids range from 13 to 21. I am in charge of if their whole curriculum. I adore my job.
Now that I am back in the real world, I don't feel quite as sure as I did before that I am pregnant. I have had sore boobs a bit today and some cramping too. I hope I hope! I plan on testing tomorrow morning. I will be 10 dpo. That is the earliest I have ever gotten a bfp.
Today my baby turns 4!

Hi Ladies, I am 4 DPO today and I am ill with the flu. I have very painful gums, frequent urination and tightness in my lower abdomen. According to CB OPK (Dual Hormone) I have 'High Feritility' i.e rise in Ostrogen today and yesterday even though I had 'Peak Fertility' and O symptons last Thursday so pretty sure I O'd last Thursday - it was CD 13 also so makes sense.

Plenty of BD during fertile window so fingers crossed.

I'm a few days behind y'all but I was hoping to join in. My husband and I have been trying for #1 since Oct 2011. I have Hashimoto's, Stage 2 Endo, and high prolactin levels. He is just fine. :)

We have been using the CBFM that measures both hormones. For some reason this month I have had a high reading since day 14 and am still reading high today on cd20. I have no idea what it is doing. It is not the first month of using this. I'm guessing it missed my surge.

cd 1-6 BD
cd 8 random spotting (any thoughts on that? Never happened before)
cd 11-12 BD
cd 13 BD, pinching twinges in left ovary
cd 14-15 EWCM, more pinching BD (Guessing O'd on cd15)
1dpo BD
5dpo SEVERE right ovary cramps (possible cyst?), light headed, headache, mild cramps and twinges in uterus

:)

Hi all! Newbie here and wanted to share my symptoms as I think I'm near your time frame! :)
9 DPO today, been having back aches, abdominal cramping on and off, boobs fuller and nipples started to feel sensitive this morning. Around 6 DPO I had some sharp spasms in the sides of my boobs--not sure if that means anything, then yesterday I saw a light pink spot in the TP in the am and then a light brown smear on my panties in the pm. AF due to come on 2/29 but she's not welcome! Praying for everyone to get a BFP this month! I plan to test Thurs CD 27 at the earliest--so I think!

Welcome Pny2016, Chelsea, and JC742.

JC - I've never used a cbfm. How does it work? Do you only test once a day? It sounds like it did miss your surge, but you had it covered. :) GL!

PNY - That spotting sounds so promising!

Chelsea - I hope you feel better soon! My gums were always sensitive when I was pregnant. Fx for you. I hope you feel better!

Jlynn - I really do love it. Do you work in a high school or an elementary school? Any signs yesterday?

Veronica - When are you going to test again?

AFM, my temp shot up again this morning to 98.44. AND I had a twinge of a sore throat, that's gone now. It could also have been from sleeping with my mouth open I suppose. I had yellowish ewcm-like cm yesterday, and that made me hopeful, except I think that ewcm is a sign of af coming. :( We'll see. I did test this morning at 2:30 when I got up to use the bathroom (I don't usually get up in the middle of the night to pee anymore, unless I've had a lot of water before bed!). It was a blue dye, and I literally peed on it and went back to bed. I'm calling it bfn, but I feel like there *might* be a disturbance. I don't know. I'll most likely test again tomorrow morning. If I'm smart, I'll hold off till Thursday, but I have literally zero will power. I have a blue dye and a cheapie from the Dollar Store (but the cheapie measures 25miU on the box). I don't know the sensitivity of the blue dye.

And how are you all?

I work in a charter school that is currently mostly elementary. It's k-7. It's only in its second year so next year it'll be k-8 so there will be a middle school.

I thought my throat was scratchy last night but I fell asleep on the couch around 8:30 while my husband played video games. Lol he woke me up to go to bed around midnight. I've had some odd dreams here and there. I caved and poas this morning (I know.. *slaps own wrists* I'm only 7dpo). Looked like a bfn. Of course I'm stupid and looked at it after the shower when I'm more awake.. Looks like there's a super faint line but I'm guessing it's just evap, although I was only in the shower for about 15 minutes. I'll wait a few more days I guess. I attached a pic for fun.. But like I said I think I looked at it too late.. Really unsure if that was there before I got in the shower. I don't know how quickly evap happens.. But the stick was still wet. I won't get my hopes up though.

How's everyone else doing?
