    XANTH - many congratulations - sending lots of luck and best wishes for your rainbow.

    You are our first BFP so I have changed you from TWW - well done.:baby:

    How many DPO were you - I am now 8 DPO and have a BFN but i am wandering if it is too early?

    11dpo before I could definitely see a line although some of my BnB friends could see one on tests before then :)

    8dpo is definitely early. You're not out yet :hugs:

    I use this site religiously each month to stop myself testing way too early, and to console myself day by day until AF shows up :wacko:

    http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/pregnancy-test/results-by-day-past-ovulation.php

    There is virtually no chance of a BFP at 8DPO as the most common day to implant is 9DPO and you don't start to produce detectable HCG in the urine until 2-3 days after implantation.

    Having said that, I am 10DPO today and BFN and feeling disappointed already about this month.

    I said the same. I even came on this thread and said I was out.

    I got a line which I thought was an evap on the evening of 11dpo.
    Have you tried using later urine. FMU never seems so good for me.

    You should post your pics. Even when you're taking a photo of a test it becomes clearer than if you look with your naked eye.

    i know i shouldn`t have tested early because i feel really down now. bought 5 early tests off ebay and have used all 5 - decided to get rid of them so i am not tempted again - i have never tested early before.

    It will be monday now before I will go anywhere to buy a test and i think my AF will be due Sunday.

    I don`t really have any symptons - i don`t think.

    i did have some very very very slight cramping the other day and have had a slight increase in CM which now seems to have gone.

    I have also got a couple of spots on my face, which I only usually get before OV.

    i am feeling tired at the moment but don`t know if more so than ususal.

    Did have a slight headache the other day, but nothing since.

    had diahrea (sorry can`t spell) last night - just the once and was very very thirsty.

    This morning my abdomen felt a bit heavy but that has now gone.

    BB are not sore or sensitive.

    My temps are high.

    The last few nights i have been having vivid dreams, waking up each day and being able to remember them.

    Last night i dreamt I bought HPK and tested twice both were BFP in my dream my DH also bought me a test - there was other stuff going on but can`t remember that.

    XANTH have you had or not had any symptons - i think I am clutching at straws now:cry:

    I think all those symptoms sound very promising. I've had aching boobs, headache, cramping and backache. Nothing different to pre-menstrual symptoms for me though :)

    If I had 20 of those cheap tests I'd have used them. It's an addiction lol.

    You should definitely take a photo of tests. The lines honestly show up more on a photo.

    Got everything crossed for you :hugs:

    I`m driving myself crazy!:headspin:

    i don`t have any other symptons today but keep feeling I need to wee - not a lot there, but i need to go again now and have been 3 times already in the last 3 hours.:haha:

    Arrgghhh - why is this waiting so horrible?

    Looks like I'm out:(
    This cycle has lasted 37 days. I hope the next one is a more normal one as I have no idea what's happened to me since the MC everything is out of kilter.

    Creative, sorry to hear you are out. Good luck on this next cycle.

    Wish I finally had an answer to my crazy limbo. I really truly thought af was coming yesterday...cramped all afternoon and evening...opened a bottle of wine to celebrate even. but woke up this morning to no bleed and the most cm I have had in years I think. With such a long cycle I really thought there wasn't even a real chance this time but am starting to question myself. Gonna test in the morning if no af.

    creative - sorry it`s not your month.

    lilblossom - let us know how you get on.

    I am now 9 DPO and really worried to do another test in case it is BFN because i will be so gutted.

    Based on previous cycles my AF should be due tomorrow- so we`ll see what happens!

    hi guys

    I am 12DPO today.No symptoms to speak of. Have done a couple of tests but both BFN's.

    This is my first cycle following my first mc at 5.5 wks. We tried a couple of times only this month. Its weird I was shocked when I got pregnant but I accepted it and just presumed it would work out ...naive I suppose.

    My partner is unmoved by any of the negative information I have collected along the way fee pregnancy after 40. (I am 42) He says there are always people with theories but successful people follow their own path. Kind of inspirational no? He is so lovely :)

    Well I have decided to take his advice and be carefree about the whole thing and treat it as though we were any other couple trying to conceive with the full expectation of succeeding.

    It is very exciting to read about BFP's from you girls. And I am full of optimism for everyone else who is still trying.

    Good luck this month everyone and keep the good news coming :hugs:

    Madeline xxx

    I've had really mucked up cycles since my MC. I had an 11 day and then a 37 day. I got AF today and it's incredibly heavy which it's never been before. I also don't think I ovulated at all in the last cycle as I have always experienced pain. Has any one elses cycles gone to pot since their MC?
