Maybaby--I agree with ArtsyLady--9 dpo is too early to call it! How early you can get a BFP depends on implantation, and apparently that can happen anywhere between 6 to 12 days, with 9 as the average. You probably had an early implantation last time to get dark lines that soon. Good luck!

ArtsyLady--We're loosely trying Shettles for a girl. We weren't swaying either way with our first, but I'm pretty sure we conceived right on my O day (I'd thought I already must have, because it was late, but noticed signs and grabbed DH for a quickie BD ) and that did result in a boy. Yay for a positive OPK--good luck to you too!

Melewen--That's really cool about the fertility bracelet! I hadn't heard of it but it sounds like it'd be great for anyone who struggles with regular temping. Let us know how it goes!

I'm a writer (mostly novels, of various sorts). Love pretty much all types of arts, though particularly books, music, and movies. Also love traveling and am looking forward to getting back into that once the kid(s) are older.

I'm Erzsebet ☺

My husband and I have been married 7 years (I'm 29 and he is 35). I am a Christian, mommy to 3 beautiful girls and an artist. I recently started up a page on facebook to sell art and jewelry. I am pretty excited about it. We are originially from Florida but have lived in Ohio for 6 years. I am a sahm and homeschool my kiddos (well, at least the oldest so far). My husband and I are currently trying to prepare to buy a house. After my two chemical pregnancies over the last couple months I am a bit anxious but super excited about ttc'ing for #4. I have been in contact with my midwife already. I had a hba2c (homebirth after 2 c-sections) with my third daughter and really look forward to planning my 2hba2c! I also was able to have a pool and give birth in the water with my hba2c which was really neat!

Today is my O day, so I guess in 10-14 days we'll see!

@Mel- That is AWESOME about the bracelet! I have never heard of it before, I'm going to have to look it up! I have such a hard time with temping, it sounds like the bracelet would make nfp a lot easier 😀

@Sorsha- *Fingers crossed* I hope that you get your little girl! Have you sold any of your novels or is it a personal passion?

I'm currently binge watching Gilmore Girls for the first time, I'm obsessed. Don't judge me. lol

Hi all! I'm Jess and I'm a software consultant in Raleigh, NC. My husband and I have been married 3 years and are on our second cycle of TTC. I am currently 6dpo so I'm super anxious for the next week to fly by so I can start testing.

I can't wait to hear about the Ava bracelet! I considered purchasing one too but decided to hold off a few months given the cost. I would love to hear how it works alongside of OPKs to see if the two are consistent.

I knew that I would probably O today but I was not prepared to cramp like I did! Wow! Usually it's just a little crampy on the left or right but this was just everywhere 😵 Hopefully it's a good sign!

I ordered a 50 pack of wondfo hpts. They will be here tomorrow with my vitex. I already want to poas but will try to hold out until 9dpo.

How are all of you?

Artsy cool! Will you link your site? And hopefully your cramps mean a really strong ovulation!

Sorsha what have you written? I want to check them out! I'm so excited about the bracelet because it means no overnight anxiety and analysis ha! I'm so Type A its hard for me to NOT do those things

JWC I can't wait to report back!! I'm hoping it'll let me be a bit more chill during TTC. I know it's early but have you tested yet??

@ Mel- I hope so!

I just started my page a few weeks ago and don't have many people following it yet or much art posted. Art has always just been a passion for me and since my oldest was born up until recently I haven't done much with it. But, this year I have really had a renewed desire to become a better artist. I also started painting pretty recently. Most of my art before that used Prismacolor pencils (a very high quality soft core pencil). I am now working on my first oil painting. It is a special picture to me to remember those babies I have up in heaven and honor mothers who have lost little ones. Oddly enough I had already bought all of my supplies for this painting before finding out I was pregnant a few weeks ago, and losing that baby makes painting this a little more emotional than anticipated. I really hope it will turn out well. It means a lot to me.

Since I recently created my account here and don't have 10 posts it won't let me share the link but you can type in @ArtsyErzsebet on the facebook search engine and it will take you right to my page which is Lady Erzsebet's Artsy Creations 🌸

It is taking all of my willpower to not test right now. I'm only 7dpo so I know it will come back negative but dang if it isn't soooo tempting to test just to make sure
