    Monday Updates - 3/4/13

    Happy 1st Monday of March! I hope the luck of the Irish is with all of us this month. Bring on the BFPs!

    My Update: CD19. Into my TWW. After all my complaining about my DH last week, we did get several BDs at what I hope was the right time. So, now we pray and wait. And I try not to read too much into all the little symptoms that my brain is tricking me into feeling.

    My birthday is Thursday, so I plan to test that day. I will be 7 DPO and rationally I know it's probably too early to get a BFP. But, it's my party and I'll test if I want to!! I don't temp or chart, so I don't know exactly when I ovulated. So, cross your fingers and send up a little prayer for me!

    On a side note, for the past week when I blow my nose, my snot (sorry, TMI), is bloody. It's the worst when I first wake up and seems to taper of through out the day. I'm trying to will myself to not hope that this could possibly me a sign of pregnancy. Especially because it started two days before I believe I ovulated. And, after 4 pregnancies, this would be a new symptom for me.

    Any other causes? I have not been sick, not even a cold and it's been realtively warm (for winter in Ohio) and moist (rain and snow).

    Have a good week, ladies! Prayers, hugs and baby dust all around!

    I try not to test no sooner than 10 dpo, since 7 dpo test was negative the last time I got pregnant. BUT, I hope yours is positive

    nothing interesting here just waiting for af due tomorrow or the next day.

    I'm not sure the monday updates are good for me to do, just typing in the previous sentence was very painful. I dunno...I'm having a really bad week. I wish i could sit down and chat with someone who understands this, I don't have any friends close by that have my problem.

    I hope everyone else is having a much better week than I am.

    am on CD22 and we are still BDing ONLY because i have not gotten an actual positive on a OPK but i am also still having EWCM, not as much, so i am thinking i already did or at least it's tapering down.
    i do have a question though, if someone doesn't O, can they still have O symptoms? i always thought if you didn't then you didn't have the symptoms too. ie: EWCM.
    that is the only symptom i have, so i don't know anything else! i think i am gonna try to POS on sunday night, i will be on CD28. so it could be legit, if i am preggers. i am not feeling it though. but i am still hoping that God has my sense of humor and grants me the wish/prayer of a november baby!

    good luck to all!!!

    Hello ladies..I hope everyone had a good weekend..
    CD 23 for me ladies...I am going to make a prediction today and say that I think I am pregnant..maybe I'll end up with egg on my face when AF decides to start but it feels like I am..
    We BDed on CDs 14, 15, 17, 18 and I'm pretty sure O was on CD 18 this cycle..I don't test I just go by the signs (cm, cramps etc)..
    This weekend I felt a little under the weather..plenty of nausea, tiredness, back aches...BB's were sore on and off and I got some headaches too..
    I know it's too early to know for sure or to even be guessing at the symptoms right now and no one knows better than I how all these could just be AF symptoms fooling me AGAIN...but IDK something tells me we got her this time..AGAIN..
    I seem to have some pretty good luck getting pregnant it's following through with it that I've been having troubles with in the last 2 yrs...3 losses in the space of 18 months was very hard to swallow..after the last one on Hallowe'en I was just done..emotionally I went somewhere I didn't even know existed and I didn't want to come back from it where it concerned TTC..if my Dr. had been the kind to do as the patient says I would be operated now and unable to keep TTC.
    Thankfully she understood that I needed time before making this type of decision and she refused me the operation until some time had went by and I am ever so grateful to her for this..
    But the fear remains IF I ever do conceive again HOW do you NOT stress after 3 losses in such a tiny space of time??!!?
    Any how I guess I will face that if I indeed get a BFP next week..
    I am surprisingly relaxed about all this..I mean if I am then I am and then I'll be plenty stressed so I am staying calm for now..
    I just have this feeling...
    Baby dust to us all, fingers crossed and prayers sent xoxo
    Have a great week all
    Let life be a journey of love

    got a positive OPK! i even had hubby determine if my eyes were playing tricks on me, he even said that the test line (left line to him!) looks darker than the control line (right side!)... so of course we are BDing tonight! ha! it's soooo funny to me that really, when it comes down to it, we ALL know when our beds are getting use of! hehe! i don't know if i am just delirious because of the OPK or if i am just tired, but yeah, i am seriously LOLing about that!

    Well ladies I just thought I'd come by and let you all know that I am pretty sure my prediction was wrong...I've been feeling more and more like AF will make her appearance next week so I guess I'll be asking you girls how you like your eggs? Ha!
    I know it's a little early for it but I hope everyone has a good weekend

    Hey Vicky. Crossing my fingers for you that your AF symptoms are really PG symptoms.

    I have been waffling back and forth thinking I'm PG and then getting discouraged. I went ahead and tested yesterday knowing full-well that it was too early. BFN, of course.

    I am waiting until Monday to test again. AF isn't due until next Thursday. Still experiences some potential symptoms like frequent peeing and tingly, tender and fuller-feeling breasts. Not convinced that it's not all in my head though.

    Oh, BTW... I don't like eggs, so you're in the clear!

    Jenny and Vicky, I'm counting on at least one of you getting a BFP this month, someone has to!

    I'm on CD# 34, at least 3 days too long and no BFP....I don't even think I ovulated this month, which would explain why i never really got a positive opk. if it's not one thing, it's another:-(

    a little mini update though, DH's specialist has decided to put him on clomid for 2 months, 50mg every two days. His count has improved since november, but the clomid is to boost his testosterone levels.
    praying that this stupid cycle would just end already...
