Hello Ladies! Mind if I join too?

I think yesterday was o-day according to OPKs. I think we did alright this month on the trying front, but my expectations are a little low. Last month I was so SURE I pregnant that I had already practiced how I would tell my DH, and when AF arrived I felt quite stupid.

So I am going to do my best to not take symptoms very seriously, unless they are crazy (like throwing up or something).

HOPEFULLY, I will have the discipline to not test until missed AF... but we'll see!

Good luck and baby dust to all!!

Oh my, Tiebreaker! So sorry to hear about your loss I can't even imagine how devastating that must have been. Feel free to vent all you want hun!!
It sounds like you ovulated and had great BD timing, FX this is your month!!

@ sunnydee: I got 70 or so IC's included when I ordered my cheap OPK's so I've been dying to test them. I hope I'll get a chance this month

Welcome margeandmom! I don't read too much into symptoms either as a lot of pregnancy symptoms are also AF/PMS symptoms. Sorry to hear about last months' cycle It sucks when we get our hopes up like that. Good luck!!

Hi ladies I'd love to join! I think I O'd two days ago but I never got a positive opk, just aaaaaalmost there. Also had a teeny tiny streak of dark red that same day. My boobs have been hurting, which they never do, and I'm bloated so I guess it's safe to say I have O'd. I had a temp shift but of course I'm doubting things bc one night I turned the heater up one degree, or wore two pairs of socks etc. So frustrating not to know exactly when I O'd but in a way I think it's better so I don't try to symptom spot and do little calculations haha! Anyways, glad to be here, sending baby dust to all!

Haha yeah I get that babylights! But looking at your chart, it definitely looks like you O'd which is the most important thing Love that about temping. Not so much the waking-up-at-6 am-every-morning-including-weekends-part though I never thought this process was going to be this stressful lol.

Thanks SunnyBe! I am trying not to stress this time! I am only 2 dpo and I am trying to figure out the earliest I can test. The ectopic just happened so fast that I want to know as soon as possible if I am pregnant again. I was only off birth control for 19 days when I got my positive pregnancy test!!! What is the earliest you guys test???

Babylights- I was like that with my ovulation tests with my dd. I ended up testing twice a day so I wouldn't miss the surge. I got an aaaalmost positive in the morning and a positive that evening. My surge was super short! Hoping this is your month!

Anyone know if it is OK to during the TWW?

I googled and found mixed things and wasn't sure. My OH was in the mood tonight and really don't want to make it feel like we are only doing it for baby making... But got all guilty and worried now, especially as I achieved the other big O....

Sweden- don't worry about dtd during the tww. I did many times with ds and he stuck around. I did have to lay off in later first tri as I started to cramp after o but that was only about a month.

Afm, I'm dying to test. I'm only 4 dpo! I want to hold out until 12 dpo since that's the day before af is due. Now I'm not so sure I can. :crazy:

marge omg my last two months were like that! I had such symptoms, and I was so SO convinced, that when af showed up it was just plain mean. I feel like now I dismiss everything because my body just can't be trusted!

sunny no kidding right?! What is up with all the years we were so freaked out we might've gotten pregnant! Turns out it's pretty freaking hard even when you try ugh!

tiebreaker omg thanks for letting me know it was successful for you! We had good timing - but then again it's always been good timing so I'm starting to disbelieve the timing thing. It's just a compete crapshoot imo!

So I think I figured out what happened - my opk's started getting really dark Wednesday morning, then almost positive Wednesday night, then dark but lighter than Wednesday night on Thursday morning, getting lighter from there as Thursday went on. I had ovulation bleeding on Wednesday and my cm was creamy on Thursday. So I think I ovulated in the middle of the night between Wed and Thursday, and it didn't catch on the digital opk Thursday morning bc I'd gotten up to pee less than three hours before I had my "fmu" to test. phew I feel better having an idea of what went on, and now if my temps stay up two more days then it'll be confirmed! Although honestly, like I said, I think it's all a crapshoot anyways! Just gotta keep trucking and eventually all trillion of the pieces will magically fall perfectly into place, right???

Babylights- glad to hear you figured out what happened! Our bodies are so confusing!!! We are on the same schedule! I am 99% sure I ovulated Wednesday too! I haven't been temping, but I got all my usual ovulation signs. When do you plan on testing?

Thank you Swedengirl. It was such a shock! I am still emotional on days, but am doing better.
