Interesting....anyone doing the Robitussin? Sounds like something fairly simple I can try if this was not our month.

I have used mucinex walmart brand. Its okay... I stopped doing it because the month we tried it I did get pregnant but that pregnancy ended in miscarriage. So I stick with preseed. Plus... it makes your nose runny as hell!

stacy..i should have AF by now! It's been 33 days since my last period..thats why i'm frustrated..cuz no AF and still a . I feel like its a big TEASE! I should be spotting at least...but i feel it, like its coming and nothing. the longest my cycle has ever been is 34 days and that was only one time...but usually its around 30-32 days. Now i'm on day 33..so i'm confused and don't know what to do.

i'm not too stressed about caffeine..screw that..if i can't have any when i'm pregnant, i'm enjoying it now. I'm not gonna go pyscho. Lots of women, drink, smoke, down coffee by the buckets before they get pregnant and have perfectly fine pregnancies. I'm not doing all that..but i have a crack-like addiction to coca-cola. I'm seriously trying to cut back to only 2 or 3 cans a week. i used to have one like every day.

nicole, that whole "if you just relax it will happen" is bullshit. I'd wanna drop kick anyone who said that to me too lol.

yeah i had two wisdom teeth out..but i think the doc did a pretty good job..i barely have any swelling and only a little pain. I've only been taking tylenol. I took the day off yesterday when I took them out but I was okay to come to work today thank god. I just feel kinda BLAH.

whats the deal with the robitussin??

I will pray pray pray (for all of us of course) but I am the same way I keep getting Big Fat Negatives and it's literally making my crazy! What's this talk about robitussin and where do you put it LOL! I am going so crazy I just talked to my hubby and told him to pick up Those EPT's that say 6 days sooner because dang it I'm at a point where I just want to know one way or the other!! Ya know! Angel I don't know how you are not going crazy girl! What brand of tests are you taking?? What symptoms are you still having??

WHEW rough. I hate the dentist! Robetussin helps produce more cervical mucus. I hope we get our BFP's this month!!! I am taking a FRER tomorrow. I told stacey that they are better than the dolalr store brand! I have also talked myself into seeing a line. I hope you feel better Angel! for all of us

Hello :) Its Anna here. I just joined and would love to follow everyone here. I'm not sure how.... But I'm figuring it out. Seems that most of the ladies here are one week ahead of me. I am 9 dpo today. 3rd month of ttc. Found this awesome website and already flipped through all the dpo days of symptoms. I revisit my particular day each morning and evening. Finished reading What to Expect Before You are Expecting. moved onto What to Expect Eating Well. Just looking for a support group during the tww n hopefully after as well. I feel like no one else would understand my obsession. The countdowns to test totally made me smile. Today I feel as I do for an ordinary pms. I feel as if I'm going to start my cycle any minute. Cramping, constantly munching, and draiiiiiiiined. Thanks for listening. And baby dust to all!! (I feel connected and happy tonight!)

Hehe I'm imaging a line there now too! Just caught up on 7 pages of your chats. I wish I found this sooner!! 34 days seems positive to me. Do u know how sensitive your tests are? If its 10 IU/something... It will detect sooner. Maybe you have a less sensitive test that needs higher levels to detect? I'm hopeful for u! I feel like I'm starting my cycle. I think I'm purposely phsyching myself out so I don't cry when AF arrives.. Something feels inferential this time. Btw we BD 2-3x from day 11-19. Hopefully we didn't overdo it. If negative, I'd like to try this sperm meets egg as well. Maybe a new group for this! And to catch up, I am 30 and DH is 27. Married since Nov and living in Ireland since Feb. most of friends n family back at home. Going back for a 5 week visit next Friday and loveeeeee to come home w good news for my parents!!

I'm still pretty sure its a negative because I feel really strong period symptoms.

but this month i'm going to be more serious with everything, i'm gonna do the BBT and the OPKs and the do the sperm meet egg thing.

sorry for the overdose on posts by me..i'm just on the computer 24/7 at work and at home.

Hey girls! Angel, don't count yourself out yet! Last month I did a lot of research about cramping, and it turns out a lot of women get pms like cramping during the early stages of pregnancy! So you still might be pregnant! If you look at the pregnancy stats by DPO on this side, you'll see that some women don't test positive for a really long time! So just stay positive

I think it's cool that we're all pretty much the same age. I'm 27 and hubby's 30, and we'll have been married for 5 years in September. I read the book Before Your Pregnancy: A 90-Day Guide for Couples on How to Prepare for a Healthy Conception (long name!), which suggests both parents take a prenatal vitamin because it takes 90 days for both eggs and sperm to mature. I've cut out alcohol, stress, and I've been working on cutting out sugar and other empty calories. I've stopped taking ibuprofen because I read it could affect fertility and is linked to early miscarriages (I think I read that's true of all nsaids, but I could be wrong). I run three times a week and walk seven times a week, and am generally trying to build a strong healthy body so that I can build a strong healthy baby!

Hi Anna welcome!! Angel, don't feel bad , I took the EXACT same test last night and got the SAME response too girl! My husband told me that he thinks I have totally convinced myself I'm preggers and I agree! I mean he says I could be but we think either way I totally have convinced myself!! This morning my temp is still up 1 degree for the 5th day in a row and I had awful nausua this morning after I ate ( it's only 5am I am an early bird ) and I thought I was going to throw up everywhere but havent yet! I have also had hot flashes for the past 3 days and now my left side is cramping really bad. Yall I am 17 DPO and no positive test, I need to realize I am not and maybe some of these symptoms will go away! OH and I am peeing like crazy, 6 times in the past 4 hours! grrrrrrr why am I so crazy LOL!!!! And obsessed haha to everyone!! Angel no for you girl and you are not crazy!! I am just going to start fresh next month and pray for the best

Hi ladies! :) Is it bad to still hold onto hope during the first day of spotting...? The last two cycles, i pray-pray-prayed it was implantation spotting. But was never the case. I still held onto hope til the every last minute.

That book, What to Expect BEFORE you are Expecting was great. I am looking for a good read for DH. What to Expect when your Wife is Expanding - its supposed to be light and "comical". Dad's Guide to Pregnancy for Dummies has good feedback. Want to find something to get him reading and knowing the all-abouts as well. Hes told me he is purposely not trying to set himself up for disappointment, so he doesnt want to get overly worked out in case of a negative. (I asked him to talk to the "baby" last trial.)

Angel, Stacey, and anyone else... we get to try a brand new method next month. >> Actually realized 2 more months for me. =\ I cant wait to see if it really works. It kinda makes sense to space out the BD, but i never thought about giving him time to replenish. Hes supposed to have millions... we only need ONE. What the heck! I keep feeling like AF is creeping up too. I am working from home today - and i keep running to the bathroom to see if it happened.

And IF we do start over, Im going to also try a cleansing. As in, cut down (notice - not cut out) the sweets and junk. Increase the healthier munchies. Little Sapphire seems so good at this. The newest book I am on says to fill your plate up w colorfuls:: reds, greens, yellows, purples. All the vibrant colors are great for you. Ill be back in the States for 5 weeks without the hubby, so I will have some time to cut the non-baby pudge. Yes, i have only myself and the morning pastries to blame. =\ It actually makes me incredibly irritable and uncomfortable....esp this past week. My skinny jeans feel overly skinny. My bra is too tight under my arms. Makes me cranky. :(

Btw:: this REALLY helps pass along the 2WW. Its truly awesome!
