Alli- What is Alli short for? My daughters name is actually Aliena, but we pretty much always call her Allie ☺

Jwc- Thank you! Doing ok so far. I've been taking at least 3 tests a day because I'm so stinkin on edge, but everything looks normal so far. Over the last couple days my lines haven't gotten darker or lighter, but no spotting so I think it should be fine. 16 dpo today. If I make it to 5 weeks I'll schedule an appointment with my midwife and an ultrasound for around 9 weeks, mid September. I mc'd right at 4 weeks the last time and am now officially pregnant longer than I stayed before. So far so good. How are you doing?

I know that pretty much everything says that your fmu is best for testing but I consistently get darker results with my evening tests. I can't wait to hear you update!

Alli- Hi! I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope that your cycles return to normal soon! I have a daughter named Allie and I call her 'Allie-gator' too 😂

These are my tests from the last few days. I mc'd at 15dpo last cycle so a little anxious but my tests are WAY darker this time. I hope and pray this little one sticks! One day at a time I guess!
Congrats Artsy!
sorry for your loss Alli

My full name is Allison - only my parents call me that! Or my husband if he's trying to be annoying LOL.

BFN for me again today. I know 10 dpo is still pretty early but it's getting harder to keep hoping seeing so many people have gotten at least faint lines this early. Especially when I got the cramps that I'd have thought were implantation five days ago. :P I think I will do my test tomorrow afternoon/evening with a FRER and then if I can't see anything on that still I'll try to hold off and just see if AF comes.

It's only our first cycle trying, so it'd be a little much to expect to catch an egg right away, I know!

When is AF due for you, Sorcha? I tested positive at 11dpo or thereabouts with my previous pregnancy that ended in a loss. It was faint but clear. AF was due in 2 days though as I have religious 28 day cycles. FX for you!!

Don't give up hope yet Sorsha, it's still early

As for me, I think I'm about a week out from ovulating so just waiting patiently until then. I'm oddly putting a lot of hope in using preseed this cycle. I also started temping this cycle so I'm anxious to see not only confirmation of ovulation but also how accurate my OPKs are in comparison.

My cycles are slightly irregular and I haven't been closely tracking ovulation past cycles, so I'm not sure of my exact LP. But they're usually 29 or 30 days, so AF should show up next Wednesday or Thursday.

Symptoms have mostly cleared up today. A lot less queasy than earlier. I've decided to wait one more day to do the FRER, just in case I Oed a day later than I thought (my temp only went up a tiny bit the first day "after" and I didn't get a super obvious positive OPK until the theoretical O day, so maybe it happened over that night or early the next morning). That way I will definitely be at least 11 dpo when I test. And after that I'll wait for AF, just because BFNs can get a little depressing.

Definitely don't give up yet, Sorsha! Even if you are 11dpo today, that doesn't count you out. And at 4.3 weeks I still only feel sporadically nauseous. I wouldn't count on any symptoms indicating whether you are preggo or not this early. Bfns are totally discouraging. I hope that you do get your bfp tomorrow with your frer!

Jwc- I'm excited to hear about how preseed works for you! Does it help you have more fertile cervical fluid? Fx this is your month!

Thanks, ArtsyLady! I went and adjusted my FertilityFriend chart to see what would happen, making my "maybe as dark as control line but maybe a little lighter" OPK as a negative instead of positive (the next day it was SO much darker) and putting in the exact temperatures instead of adjusting down .1 degrees when I hadn't had a full three hours sleep before temping, and it switched my O date from Aug 1 to 2 based on that. I wish I slept more consistently so I could count on my temps giving an accurate picture! (A lot of nights I don't sleep 3+ hours straight at all. :P )

Next cycle I'll at least start temping from the beginning of the cycle which will give the program more to work with.
