Gotta love those abbrevs! I'm going to do my best to hold out until 10 DPO (4-25-12) to test. Wishful thinking I know. 1 DPO today!

Hey, :) OMG... I can tell I'm gonna be climbing the walls by the end of this TWW... tiny problem tho... confusion over O day... CD 11 had EWCM, but negative OPK... Positive OPK's on CD 13 & 14 tho... would you trust the CM or the OPK's? This is only my second month using OPK's...

@ JMeldrum82- OPK right? Because outside stuff can change CM? I had almost the same problem. I had O pain for a few days last week, but CM\BBT\OPK point to Sunday? Gotta go with the OPK for me.

I say we change DPO to DP(days pregnant) Whoop Whoop!

My first 3 came so easy to the shock of my dr- scar tissue from multiple m/c's and ruptured cysts, tipped uterus, severe anorexia... plus I had the copper IUD when I conceived #3 (was trying very hard not to pg because my first marriage was falling apart)... Have developed a lot of concerns in the last almost 4 years tho... for example: post- Mirena, scoliosis, asthma, negative RH factor- have severe allergies all year around too and even worried that the 20mg's of zyrtec I have to take everyday is a problem... show tons signs of imbalances as far as estrogen and progesterone levels go... plus have been showing multiple signs of 3 autoimmune disorders ( 1 since I was 15, 1 since I was 19, and 1 since I was 25)... I don't have any symptoms of issues such as PCOS or anything like that tho... all I know is that TTC has really started to freak me out... so I'd be very grateful to get a BFP very soon...

I tried really hard to do the BBT's last month, but my sleep cycles are so irregular that it's no use...

I had alot of auto immune symptoms while I was on Mirena. That's the first reason we decided to get it out. We then decided that we might as well give it go. Have you had positive ANA tests or anything? I also have scoliosis, which made an epidural impossible with my second delivery. After 15 sticks we just did natural, OUCH! If I'm pregant I plan to go to a chiropractor every month, and every week during my last month. That really seemed to help with my first delivery. Epidural and pushing were so much easier.

Oh and as far as Zyrtec goes. I'm pretty sure that you can take benadryl, and tylenol when you are pg which is the same as tylenol PM. Discuss with MD though (I'm just a MA).

I had a really bad experience with my second one. Had the worst spinal headache in the world. I had to get a bloodpatch (another shot in the spine)a few days after delivery. It was a nightmare. The first one ws smooth as silk. Natural childbirth is not for me though. With the curve in my spine my pelvis is tilted. My last daughter was born hand first with her face up. It was a more peaceful experience the first time with the functional epidural.

my scoliosis has caused my spine to curve so far forward that it is literally a half inch under my navel... this has affected the position of my pelvis so much that the "top" of my hips nearly touch the front of my thighs... have been doing simple yoga for 11 months, as per the recommendation of my orthopedic specialist, to try to strengthen the muscles along my spine and to stretch my hamstrings, but progress is slow... if I accidentally push myself too hard the muscles in both my arms and legs will lock up for 1-4 days making movement both very painful and frustrating... as far as the zyrtec goes, dr had me start taking it daily to control my asthma, chronic sinus infections, and allergies to most fruits and veggies... if i stop taking it for just a few days i get a sinus infection and start having frequent asthma attacks... in my research i have found reports that breathing problems can cause issues with maintaining a pregnancy and have found conflicting reports about whether or not inhalers are safe for pregnancy... have tried to control allergy symptoms/ asthma/ and sinus infections with benadryl, claritin, allegra, and flonase, but not with as much success as zyrtec... i know i'm probably seriously over-analyzing everything these days, but i have a hard time ignoring these concerns when we've been TTC for almost for years... hope i'm not driving you guys nuts already, LOL...

That is so much to wrap your head around, and I'm sure it is equally hard to deal with too. There are plenty of women getting pg accidentally with alot of severe medical problems that deliver healthy babies. Gotta look at the positives.

So the next thing a look for is implantation signs right?

You are so right... definitely trying to look at the positives... i can tell that the fertilaid is making some major changes already and that is what i am clinging to right now...
