@Mrs. Oreo: I would only test if you're feeling like you need the reassurance.
I'm getting nervous about my hcg draw tomorrow - worried it is going to be way too low for how far along I should be. I think I just don't have good associations with hcg draws after having so many of them done after losses.

@periwinklebee: thinking of you I know this is so hard
As for CM, I notice the thick, sticky stuff maybe 4 or 5 days before ovulation. To be honest, I have a hard time telling EWCM from leftover "ingredients". I don't think I have that much, though.
@jhd: Thank you I'm super grateful to have been able to get pregnant, which I wasn't expecting. Trying to stay neutral and distracted...
How are things going for you? Thinking of you and sending lots of positive vibes.

I think I'm going to move over to the June board. I'm still waiting to ovulate CD 17 today and I think I'm just now getting EWCM and my cervix is moving up. I think my body was just messing with me with the close to positive opk a few days ago.
Has anyone ever noticed they ovulate later when they ovulate from a particular side? Call me crazy (but aren't we all? ) but I can usually tell the side I ovulate from and the last time I ovulated from my right side, it wasn't until CD 22. The last few months it's been from my left side and has been more like CD 16 or 17. Weird!!
@mrskansas: well. My FRER was as faint as the first tests.
@Mrs. Oreo: Really?? That's surprising. How long was your hold?

@Mrs. Oreo: some people's tests never get darker. A line is a line!
@mrskansas: 4 hour hold. @dc yoga bee: yeah there's still a line there. I'm just gonna keep believing my digital!
No spotting happening though. I told a very close coworker today because she and I have really crazy clinics and she can take over my patients if needed since my headaches and cramps are making me wanna lay down.
@Mrs. Oreo: Ugh sorry for the uncertainty. @dc yoga bee: is right though, a line is a line.
@jodyblair: That is strange but then again our bodies do weird things! Hopefully ovulation is right around the corner
@mrskansas: it's getting a little darker than the first tests now that it's dry. I saw about 6 babies this morning and all they did was smile and stare at me. It's like they know!
@jodyblair: Oh poo, sorry about the delayed ovulation. I think my ovulation pain (when I think I feel it) varies from one side to the other, so I'm no help.
@Mrs. Oreo: Can you post a picture of it? That's good that it's drying darker!
Ok now I feel like a dumbass. I guess it's getting darker, albeit slowly.
@Mrs. Oreo: ok yeah that's quite a bit darker!
@Mrs. Oreo: That's darker!
@Mrs. Oreo: Definitely darker!!!

@Mrs. Oreo: way darker! Thinking only positive thoughts for you!
Hanging out at 7DPO over here. Zero symptoms which I don't know if I should be happy about or not. Lol. Last month I had more cramping and sore nipples so maybe the lack of symptoms is something. Will know in a few days!

@Mrs. Oreo: that looks great!!
@Coral: @bushelandapeck: @periwinklebee: @bhbee: @jodyblair: @dc yoga bee: @mrskansas: Thank you, ladies. What would I do without you all?! I'm officially done POAS and temping. I will try to relax and wait for my OB appt. 6/21 seems like it's a year away!
Hope your Friday is off to a good start!
I caved.....tested this AM at 8DPO on a wondfo and I swear there is *something* there. Can't be sure if it's just an evap or a true second line but it did come up within the window. I would post a pic but I don't think you'd be able to see anything.
@bushelandapeck: for me zero symptoms has always been a good thing. All the times I thought I had a ton of symptoms were bfns.
@periwinklebee: same!!zero symptoms with my first.
@bushelandapeck: crossing my fingers it turns into a line!
@bushelandapeck: good luck! @periwinklebee: I had ZERO symptoms with this one too!
@bushelandapeck: good luck
ETA: You should definitely post a picture. You know we all love starting at HPTs.
I'm officially in the TWW... We are able to BD at 2pm yesterday and then at 1am. I'm pretty sure I ovulated overnight so we should have covered our bases.
I am so bloated though that it was hard to walk when I got out of bed. My stomach just feels really sore, especially on my right side.
@mrskansas: Yay for good timing! Hope the TWW passes quickly for you.
@bushelandapeck: Post a picture!!! Fingers crossed for you.
@jodyblair: I hope so!
How are you doing? Any progress with your OPK?
@mrskansas: Yay!!! Enjoy the "Hawaiian vacation" of the early TWW
Okay. I'm going to post the one with SMU because I think it's better lighting.
HCG is 7025 (23 or 24 dpo) - I know one draw doesn't tell you much but according to beta base it seems pretty good for 23-24 dpo so yay! One step at a time... Will go back for another draw Monday.
Out of curiosity and b/c I like peeing on things, I took one of the CB weeks estimator tests with very concentrated urine. It is supposed to give 3+ when hcg is above 2500, I think, and it gave me a 2-3.
@bushelandapeck: I see it! Get a FRER if you can!
@bushelandapeck: Is that a Wondfo or easy@home? Just asking because of the false positives from the easy@home tests a few weeks ago.
But I definitely see it!
