@mrsjyw: I wouldn't worry about no symptoms. Most people don't feel any. Fingers crossed for you!

Thanks ladies. I am now in the "debate" of when I want to first test. Weekends are always easiest. But will only be about 11dpo Sunday. Never really tested, usually can hold off until I am late or AF shows. This month just seems different so its got me wondering...we will see!

I'm 8 DPO, and fertilityfriend is telling me not to test until 15 DPO. I'm pretty sure I won't be able to wait that long, but I will hold out until 12 DPO (Sunday) for sure.

@Rescuemom10: What different symptoms do you have this month? Fingers crossed for you.
@kml636: Have fun tonight!
@OLIVIAOBLIVIA- Usually my temps starty to slowly go down or jump around more. This is only my thrid month charting, but last two charts right after 5dpo it goes down. Plus like I said it usually jumps around more. Its been more steady and staying high more this time. My charts so far have been sim until this one, even though my cycles have been getting longer. So I think my body is still adjusting to getting off BC in Oct. So I really am trying to not over think things.
@Rescuemom10: High is good! It's so hard to not symptom spot. Good luck on Sunday!
Ugh still no smiley. This is starting to get me down. I think if it doesn't happen this month, I'm going to try temping. Any of you never get a smiley with the OPK's? I feel so dang impatient.
@mrskc: I don't use OPKs but do temp and really love it. Fingers crossed that you get your smiley soon!
@oliviaoblivia: Thank you! I feel like temping will take some guess work away and let me know my cycles better.
No EWCM. But been having a lot of cramps the last couple of days. It feels like someone is pinching my ovaries. It's gets sharp and it comes and goes. I hope this is a sign! Anyone else get this?
@mrskc: I don't ever really get EWCM just watery. I also get ovulation pain 'middlesmertz'. It lasts for about an hour or so.
It's definitely a good sign.

@mrskc- when are you testing using your opks? I hadn't ever gotten a positive until I tested earlier (2pm) yesterday. Maybe it was just a coincidence, but I'd been testing every other day/month at like 6 or 7 pm.
@MrsLMA: I"m trying the digital test this month, and I'm testing first thing in the morning. With that test, you can use FMU. I guess because it is just looking for an LH increase from the previous day. I'm not really sure how it works. Maybe I'll try taking it tonight.

@mrskc: I tested this month with FMU and got a faint line on the strip.... I tested again in the afternoon and got the positive line... If we don't get a BFP this month, I'll be switching to digital monitors. the lines are so hard to read!
8 DPO AND I'M GETTING STIR CRAZY... but I've been doing well not testing this early :):):) 6 more days!
@mrsjyw: That's exactly why I switched to digital this month. I wanted to take the guess work out of it. But CD 19 and no smiley. I'm going crazy! I just want to O. Fingers crossed for you!
Getting closer to Feb!!!!! Hang in there ladies and best of luck to everyone!
Oh and Happy Friday!
I'm out. This period started really weirdly, but will be officially here later today, accomanpanied with low temps and everything.
@MaisyMay: I'm sorry.

Boo, sorry to hear that @Rescuemom10 and @MaisyMay. But a new cycle is a new chance, so hopefully this one is better than the last!
Day 10/11 DPO... BFN on dollar store HPT... due for AF anywhere from Wed - Fri this week... already gearing up for Cycle 3
@mrsjyw: Booo... I hope it's a false negative, but I guess you'll know soon enough. If this isn't your cycle, hopefully Cycle 3 is!!!
DH had some not so good news at work today. Thinking we are going to put a stop for a bit with TTC. So looks as though its good we didnt get PG this month and just need wait and see on other things right now. I just hope everything with this news "pans" out otherwise we will be putting a stop to TTC for longer than I would like. This week has been horrible and its not been getting any better. Ugh!
@Rescuemom10: Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that! That's so frustrating. I hope you don't have to put your TTC plans on hold for too long. Good luck to you and your husband.
@ADIRA- Thanks bunches! Me too. It would be 3 years. We will know more by this fall. I really hope we can know sooner than that because not knowing is brutal! Soonest we can know is May. So just "hurry up and wait" right now.
@Rescuemom10: So sorry to hear that. Wish you and your husband all the best, and hope things will work out.
@MRSKC- Thanks! Trying really hard not to stress and keep telling myself things happen for a reason. Time will tell. Its just "waiting" during this time thats hard!

I have the faintest of faint pink lines (as in can't take a photo to tell the parents faint). Hmmm. I'll get a digital test on Wednesday or Thursday if AF isn't here. Good ol' Murphy, upholding his laws.
blogger / honeydew / 7081 posts
@cyneswith: Even the faintest of faint lines could be something good...how many DPO are you? Fingers crossed for you!
@redsmarties: 13 DPO. It would be the worst possible month for me to get pregnant - thus the Murphy's law comment. I can't really hope to be pregnant this month, with the associated logistical difficulties (hubby would deploy when such a wee one would be under a month old, as opposed to delaying his deployment like any other cycle would. No local relatives either.)
@cyneswith: Oh seriously? Well in that case, I will tentatively uncross my fingers...
@redsmarties: No, don't uncross your fingers. I want to be pregnant, and Murphy holds a powerful role in my life. It's better for me to work with him. I just am not letting myself be happy about it yet.
ETA: Oops. That's 14DPO.
@cyneswith: Alright then. Fingers re-crossed. You and Murphy have some talking to do.
@cyneswith: Eee! I'm crossing my fingers for you too
@cyneswith: good luck! Fingers crossed for you as well!
No such luck. I'm out. Which SHOULD mean I'm not a single mom for the sleepless months! YAAAAAAAAY!
Updates?! Anyone?! I'm not testing until Wednesday but I want to live vicariously! !:)
