Hey ladies, sorry I haven't been updating much..busy week with my kids at school. I will start testing on Saturday and I will keep you updated!!

Torontochick, I am soo sorry!!!

Dragonflymamma, this is a good place to come for comfort! You are in my thoughts!

Jennybobenny, I have been very crampy, some definite changes in CM-a lot and it is creamy, which I don't usually get a lot of, other than that trying not to symptom spot too much after my last cycle!! lol

hey guys
it's been a while, but i'm back. it seems that this pregnancy was not meant to be and i miscarried at 6w2d (doc said levels were consistent with around 5wks). so in an effort to stay positive, i'm back on this site and eager to try again once i get the ok from the doc. not sure when that will be, but just thought i'd say 'hi' now. i'm sorry to everyone that's still here looking for their BFP, but i'm glad at least that there are still some familiar people around.
all the best to you guys!

Oh Elizabeth, I am so so sorry. I know there is nothing I can say to make it better, but just know that you're not alone. I miscarried in July at around 5 weeks, and it was one of the most difficult times I've ever had, but I'm holding on to hope that there is another baby in my future. ((hugs))

Oh Elizabeth I am SO SORRY!!! ((hugs)) That just sucks all around! Love and stuff... we're here for you!

Gray did you test yesterday? Anything?

Dragonfly... how's that cycle going?

AFM: symptom spotting again... 8dpo and I had the hip thing a few days ago but only for the one day (thank god). My temp dropped a bit on 5dpo and I had a killer headache all day - ended up going home early. And starting Friday afternoon/evening (at 6dpo) and it is continuing if not getting worse... my nipples are SUPER sensitive and sore! I could be totally hot and still have porn star nipples! And any kind of brush by them and it kills. Even when they're not being touched, they have a constant achy feeling... like someone just twisted them. My best friend is very excited about this because she says it's a total sign. I guess we'll see. :)

Hugs to you all! Happy Halloween!

Elizabeth I am soo so so sorry!

Jennybobenny, How are you feeling? I feel awful. I have a sore throat, stuffy nose, cramps and my boobs hurt bad!! I had sharp pains off and on last Sunday, cycle day 18 thinking it might have been implantation (wishful thinking? lol) but in retrospect, after looking and my chart and CM i've been tracking, I think maybe I was ovulating. So that would only make me about 8 DPO. So far only BFN's but still no AF either, which leads me to believe I am correct with ovulating maybe a few days later. We shall see....waiting until Wednesday to test again.

dragonfly, any updates? How are you doing?

Last time I wrote, all frustrated about my messed up cycle, was CD 47. Looks like I ovulated on CD 48. :) That's still messed up, but at least I ovulated! I never got a positive OPK, but I felt strong ovulation pain that evening and then had a good temperature rise. So...now I'm 5DPO and waiting.

gray and jenny..excited to hear test results! Fingers crossed for you both! :)

I'm gonig to start testing tomorrow even though I'm not really expecting to see a BFP. I'm surprised I haven't tested yet - I have a zillion tests staring at me!

Nips are still sensitive. Not quite as sore as the other days this weekend, but still very tender.

My mood today was swingy. I totally lost it after a bit of a disagreement with a coworker. My boss laughed at me and suggested I come to temple with him to chant (he's buddhist). ha.ha. I told him I'm hormonal and he was all "really?! Are you really?!" giddy like and excited. LOL fyi: he knows my journey as a wanna be mom and is totally supportive.

But since it was halloween and half the office was dressing up and we had a bit of a party, my mood was also good. LOL Like I said... swingy. :)

My rib cage is a little sore today. Happened suddenly when I was at the store this morning and the pain has continued off and on all day. Not a pulled muscle feeling or anything... more like my ribs are being stretched open or something. Very strange. Relaxin perhaps?

Gray you might be right about the ovulation. I get definite twangs when I ovulate. Fingers are still crossed!

Hi gals!!!

I know it's been a while, but it looks like I checked in a a very busy time.

Elizabeth -- I'm so sorry for your loss. I know how attached a person can get to their little one -- even in a few short weeks. You are definitely in my thoughts, and I pray that next time, your body and your little one are in sync and ready to go.

Dragonfly -- Yay for ovulating! Your cycle must have been really off due to the stress of packing, moving, and getting settled. It's kind of nice that your body was able to wait until it was ready to ovulate, though. If you do end up pregnant, I am going to be certain that it's because your body just knew that it couldn't handle being pregnant on top of everything else. You better keep us updated during your TWW!

Jennybobenny -- Yay for your TWW!!! I'm so glad you made it here. Last month, when there was no donor, it seemed like forever until we'd get to this point again... Yet here we are! I'm so hopeful for you. I hope this is your month and that this donor has good, strong, healthy sperm that are looking for a nice egg! ;-) Sore boobs are definitely a good sign. Here's hoping that you have many, many more good signs to come.

Last but not least: Graysam!!!! YAY!!! Congrats, girl! How ridiculously exciting! I hope that everything goes swimmingly well for you. I read your post from about a week ago where you mentioned the sore throat and stuffy nose and I totally smiled. I think that's one totally huge pregnancy symptom that most people totally overlook. I love that you noticed it, and I love that you're pregnant!

My quick update: I'm still pregnant -- and almost done with my 9th week! We said we'd keep it a secret for a bit, but that lasted for about 2 weeks. By week 6, we had told quite a few people! ;-) However, after my husband was diagnosed with testicular cancer last year, we both realized that life is too short to keep good news to yourself. I'd much rather spread the joy than hold it in. The actual pregnancy is going well. I got to see my little monkey's heartbeat at the 8 week appt, and that was the coolest darn thing imaginable. It definitely made up for the constant, sometimes debilitating, morning sickness. I'm looking forward to becoming nice and big and fat...

I'm also looking forward to lots more happy BFPs from this group of amazing women! Keep the updates coming. I love reading about what's going on with all of you, and I'm always sending you good thoughts. My baby is also waiting/hoping for some Thinking Positive Buddy Group friends!

Hey V! It's great to see you again!

Chart stalkers.... I was bummed yesterday with a big temp drop at 10dpo. Thought the trend was going to continue and AF was on her way... but it jumped almost a full degree this morning! Went from 97.7 to 98.5!!! Yipee!

Trying not to be SUPER excited (it's hard though because the temp is really high!). We'll see what tomorrow brings... and the next day and the next day and the next.

Crossing fingers for myself! :D

Oh ladies, I'm not doing so great today! 12dpo and BFN.

Feeling SUPER emotional on all levels. I'm crying, angry, edgy, depressed, people all around me are irritating the EFF out of me! I can't even handle reading emails today without screaming inside (and they're normal emails). Everything is bothering me to the Nth degree. I just want to go home and lay in bed.

My temp dropped a little today and even though it's still in the high range, I can't help but feel like AF is on her way. Started feeling cramps that feel just like AF/PMS and I know I can feel that and still be PG but I can't help but feel like it's AF.

My bbs and nips are still sensitive though. The skin is very sensitive too. Actually all my skin is. I can't even wear a ponytail in my hair today because it felt like it was pulling on my scalp too much.

I'm so tired. I know I've only tried this twice, but already I feel like I just don't want to go through this tww again! Wah.

Don't give up Jennybobenny! I felt the same way before my BFP! I was laying in bed crying because I was just so miserable and everything bothered me, kinda thought I was getting the flu mixed with PMS. It was awful. Got my BFP the next morning! I have a very solid BFN one day before my BFP. Like it magically changed.....


Keep me updated!

8 DPO...so much pain!! I think I have a cyst on my left ovary. Had one during the 2WW when I was pregnant with my daughter, so that's encouraging. That one was so bad I ended up in the er, I hope this one isn't that bad!! On top of that I'm bloated and having terrible gas pain. If I'm not pregnant I'm going to be upset that I went through this pain without taking any motrin. ;)

Hope everyone else is doing well. Thinking of you, Jenny. I hope today is a better one for you.

Dragonfly I hope the cyst is a good sign but also hope you're out of pain very soon! How you doing?

CD30 today... 14dpo and AF is due. I will be holding my breath all day long. Good thing is my temp stayed high this morning at 98.2. Crossing fingers but for some reason I'm still out of a lot of hope. Won't be surprised if AF shows up, but hope she doesn't of course!

Thanks V! AF stayed away all day. Had creamy CM today too which is odd before AF... usually it's sticky or dry altogether. I had a great day with lots of energy. I had a lot of retail therapy and went for dinner and a movie. It kept my mind off things!

Just waiting for tomorrow now. Not sure how the time change will affect my temps. Shouldn't be out by more than .1 or .2 I would think. Guess we'll see!
