Just wanted to let you all know that I'm in Florida. Leaving this morning, the weather was nice, flight was on time and smooth and we landed to nice weather as well. By the time we got to the hotel it was raining and hasn't stopped since!

Interesting things occurring to me today (you all would be the only ones to understand!):

at the airport at home, right across from me sat a woman using her iPad. I was paying close attention since I am getting an iPad on this trip. Anyway, she had her two daughters with her. She started showing them pictures of herself pregnant, with a newborn etc. Since I should have been pregnant on this trip, it really bothered me.

Anyway, we get to the hotel (this is a hotel we stay at all the time and I actually found out on one of these trips about my first pregnancy) and I must say we have never seen any functions happening here, but as I walk in I see a huge 'babyshower' sign in the lobby and the whole dining area is decorated.

We go shopping and I kid you not, everywhere I went there were pregnant women. Honestly?

I just kept thinking....years ago, before the loss, I would taken all of these occurances as a sign. Now I am just so negative about it all. Before the loss, I would have been giddy with excitement at all of these 'signs'. Now I am just living in my own personal 'pregnancy' he11.

I don't know what is going on with my stomach. I've been having severe like cramp pains all day today and I've also noticed them the last few nights when I lay down and relax. Very strange...I wonder if it is nerves?

Anyway, I will keep you all updated while I am away! Hope everyone has a great weekend!!!

Well, I've seen the FRER tests in numerous places already, but I refuse to buy them because I know once I buy them I will want to start testing right away, lol. I did bring my up&up tests with me, but since they are blue dye (correct?) I think I will not use them unless and until I get a good positive on a pink dye test. I jut wouldn't be able to take the heartache of a false positive.

Anyway, we have two Walmarts, Target, Kmart, Walgreens etc. all very close to the hotel so the minute I need the tests, I can run out and get them.

I woke up this morning to these annoying cramps again I'm going out to the lobby to get some tea in a bit to see if that will ease them up!

I'm so sorry. It is hard to see the pregnancy stuff everywhere.

I hope you can get some relaxation on your trip.

Wahoo! Welcome to the mainland.

Ugh, of COURSE there would be a baby shower convention at your hotel. Murphy's law, right? Sorry you have to wade through all of that. Sending hugs and strength!

Honey - LOAD UP!!!! I'd be buying every one of those places out of their entire stock. On the way home, the x-ray machine attendant would think I was an absolute nut because I would have an extra bag with just HPTs and OPKs in it.

Have a Great Vacation!

Yes, we'll be here for a week. I still have the stomach cramps. I notice them more at night time and this evening I am completely bloated. Besides that we are having a good time! I already went to Walmart and got a 3 pack of FRERs. So excited, but so nervous to test....

Seriously, just like lelila said, I would buy ALL tests I could find, regardless of CD! So what if they go unused? Let's hope so!
For instance, I have about 20 OPK left from this month (my stash!!), but since I use more than that in a month, my husband already ordered 40 more...

Update: I went to the plaza where I thought there was a dollar store. NO such luck...the store is gone It's like I am not meant to buy any cheap tests....

I decided to test 3 times while here in Florida - this morning (9dpo and exactly 4 months after my D&C), Thursday (will be 11 dpo and my daughter's 7th Birthday) and Saturday (13dpo and the day we leave to fly back home).

Anyway, this morning was negative, go figure!

Will keep you all posted

Keep trying! I hope that you are having fun there, and hope the rain has stopped. And even if you can't get the cheapo tests, the medium price ones will fill that POAS need!

Yes, we are having lots of fun! It's been raining every day since we got here, but nothing to stop us from going out etc. Tomorrow is a big day for us.....the mall (to buy an iPad and an iTouch5), dentist checkups for both girls, endo appointment for my daughter (she has type 1 Diabetes), more shopping at the mall and then dinner at Olive Garden. Of course, in the back of mind is always the one nagging question though, lol Hopefully I'll get a positive answer soon! LOL

Yes, it's Thursday...after this morning's temp, I just don't know how to feel now It dropped below the cover line. I did research that online because of course I just can't accept it just like that and now I read that you should never test in the middle underneath your tongue, but that there are two hotspots on either side. So, AFTER I had already gotten up, moved around a bit, used my brain....hahahaha, I had to retake the temp just to see. Okay waking temp was 97.07 and temp after being awake for about 15 minutes was 97.71. Does that seem like a 'normal' difference?

Of course I took a test - it's officially negative, but of course my eyes have a way of playing tricks on me.

Yesterday I had a little bit of eggwhite/orange/brown CM, but only when I wiped once.

Now I'm wondering if either AF is coming or the CM and temp dip could indicate implantation???

I'm so confused and sad right now

BUT knowing me, unless AF shows up of course, I'll still test Saturday again. It's like, once I build a plan in my brain, I can't deviate from that!

Send me lots of good vibes, pixie dust etc....it's always worked in the past when I've asked!!!

I don't know anything about temps and such, so no advice there. But I will certainly send all the other requests your way!
