Re: ATTS: December 8, 2011

Good morning ladies .... Hope you are all keeping warm wherever you are! The temp dropped in DC like 20 degrees yesterday. BRRRRRRRRRRRRR!

Maaike, how are you? I've been thinking about you and hoping you are okay! Sorry you have to wait a week to test your quants again (did I read that right?).

Kim, so sorry you've had such a rough experience. I guess early testing definitely has some drawbacks. Hug your kiddos! Maybe 2012 is going to be the year for another one!

Carissa, hang in there. Sorry to hear about the BFN. I know that it gets harder every time ...

Caroline, hope you catch the egg!

AFM, I OFFICIALLY missed my ovulation! I am really upset. Well not that upset, I GUESS, but this egg coulda been a really good, healthy one that would have caught a good swimmer. How do I know I missed it? Well all the O symptoms I experienced Tuesday ... they were for real. The glob of CM was probably after O CM, which apparently can be globby (according to Dr. Google). My OPK yesterday AM was not as dark as the test line, but it was pretty dark. Last night and this morning have been very faint. I JUST missed it. I would have DTD last night, but I got home at eight and crashed in bed. I feel like such a bad ATTSer, and I'm absolutely flummoxed about my O date ... I've never ever O'd as early as CD 12. Never! (I've usually had positive OPKs on day 15-17, and my cycle was mega-long last time.) Not sure what is going on with me. I meant to start temping this month, but next month I'll really have to! (As I have mentioned, I'm lazy and I wake up a LOT at night, but I'll give it a go so I can figure out my egg routine.) SIGH.

Hope you girls have a good day! Stay positive so you can see those positive lines!

Re: ATTS: December 8, 2011

Good morning everyone!
I am so glad I have this forum. I don't really have a lot of people IRL that I can obsess with about this. I mean, there are a ton of people who I could call to talk about pregnancy, but not about this waiting for two weeks (which seems like eternity) and trying to read every nuance of what my body is doing to guess if I'm pregnant or not.

So how early can you POAS and get a BFP?

I am starting to doubt whether I was ovulating when I thought I was b/c I haven't been keeping track of my cycles or temps. I started to do the temp thing but then got a cold and sinus infection, and then my daughter got a cold and sinus infection, so I was up every night until the last two nights.

Also, what is an evap?

Oh no!! Sorry you missed your O! I can't imagine the bummed feeling! I do however know what it's like to O early. There for a bit after ds 2 I was o'ing on cd6-cd8 talk about insane!

Afm- still waiting for ppaf BUT since I ordered tons of opk I've been having fun poas! I have yet to start temping since I can't seem to even get 3hrs of sleep at a time but I'm not really worried about that right now. Usually ppaf shows around 6-7 months pp which means I should O in another month or two. Guess we shall see! They messed up my opk order and sent me double so I have a stash that's super fun to play with! So weird that I've had O signs and af symptoms but still no af.

Re: ATTS: December 8, 2011

Camilla, you could always DTD tonight just in case. For all the testing, temp taking and reading other body signs, when it comes down to it, we've all heard stories of pregnancies happening when they weren't likely. You just never know!

For all the ladies whose posts I've been reading about m/c's, BFNs and so forth, you are in my thoughts and prayers, for what it's worth. I have been rather quiet about those posts b/c I just felt that I needed to be in here a little longer before chiming in about such sad topics. But I suppose that was remiss since prayers, hugs and "I'm sorry"s can never hurt. My heart truly goes out to all of you as you deal with these trials.

Re: ATTS: December 8, 2011

Anyone experience cramping all throughout your cycle? I feel like I have been marking the "Cramps" checkbox on FF every single day for a long time! Some days are worse like the cramps right when AF is starting, and other days are less like when its tapering off. But almost every day I've had some kind of cramps, which is really unusual for me. Usually I get them only the day before and first few days of AF. Could cramping all the time be a sign of cysts or something?

Re: ATTS: December 8, 2011

Carissa, I forget what you had posted before about tests... Did you get a BFP before? I'd say there is still hope since many of the signs for AF are signs of pregnancy also. I learned in college bio that your body actually acts as if you are pregnant toward the end of each cycle whether or not you are.

I wish you the best!

Re: ATTS: December 8, 2011

Camilla - how frustrating that you missed your O! That would make me really upset as well. Maybe you can BD tonight?

Carissa - I don't know much about temps and such but I have my fingers crossed for you. Do you have any symptoms?

Eileen - I cramp all the time. I have endometriosis, not sure if that has anything to do with it.

AFM - I'm going back in for betas this afternoon and I find out the results tomorrow morning. I don't have much hope. The nurse told me that my progesterone was very low (single digits). I asked to be put on progesterone but they wanted to repeat my betas first. Ugh. I took a test this AM that was pretty light. I have no pregnancy symptoms other than being tired and slightly tender bbs. I have my fingers crossed but at the same time I'm bracing myself for another loss. There's also the worry of a possible ectopic because I have spotting off and on. How do you wait for that? This sucks.

Starting with the first period I ever had and ending with my pregnancy, I had cramping every day of my period (except the last day sometimes) and the few days prior. It can be a sign of cysts, but not necessarily.
