well, not sure what to think - today i'm 9dpo and should get AF tomorrow if i follow the pattern of the last three months. this morning i had a wave of nausea when trying to eat breakfast, but then it passed. my bbs feel big and my nipples very sensitive, but i started spotting today. very light brown (sorry if too much information) but it could be either implantation bleeding or just good old AF. recently i have been spotting before she arrives, so we'll just have to see. and my temperature dropped today. it was holding steady at 98.1 and today dropped to 97.6. don't know what that means. ugh. this waiting is the worst! if i don't start AF tomorrow i'll feel more hopeful...

baby dust to all! hoping all get O's and lots of BD'ing!

well, i have been pretty slack lately and haven't yet ordered more preseed. yikes! only have a few left. also haven't bought my opk's yet. i'm temping, but i think i may just not buy opks this time around. try and play it casual and try and tempt murphy's law. so i guess that means we'll just have to bd a lot!

my dh actually asked me when i was going to ovulate with a little naughty grin! i could have died! i guess he's ready! that is the best part. this is lifting a lot of tension we had between us before and is bringing us closer. yay! this is also inspiring me to get more excercise and lose a few pounds to look even sexier!

baby dust to all!

well, i love early-pregnancytests.com so much! i ordered pre-seed and it came in like 3 days with free shipping! yay! well, no 'O' yet and lots of BD... so here's hoping. i should 'O' tomorrow, so we Bd'd this morning and hopefully will have lots more fun later today and tomorrow! glad this is falling on the weekend as my weeks are so stressful at work and i end up getting home way after dh has gone to bed. i didn't do OPK's this month, so trying to just relax. i am temping, though. didn't really want a christmas baby which this would be - like almost ON christmas. but i'm sort of playing with murphy's law on this. i don't really care at this point when i have a baby - i just want a baby anytime! i didn't want to miss this opportunity to try!

baby dust to all!

well, i think i o'd yesterday on schedule. my temp went up from 97.7 to 98.1. but we shall see. dh was tired so we didn't bd yesterday. poor guy. i've been attacking him! it's weird though with my thermometer. i've noticed that if i temp a couple times in a row the temp is different. it levels out after three takes. so i'm pretty sure my temp went up, but i didn't temp multiple times before yesterday. anyway. i need to relax!! if it happens this month -great! if it doesn't, no biggie. there's always next month. and then my future baby's b-day wouldn't be competing with x-mas. even better.

baby dust to all!!

well, i think my thermometer might be on the fritz. my temp pre-ovulation consistently has been 97.6 and 97.7. Then it usually jumps to 98.0 or 98.1 after ovulation. anyway, when it has kept showing 97.7 for days straight, i was starting to wonder if that is correct because i thought it was weird not to have any fluctuation. anyway, on the 17th when i thought i o'd, it first read 97.7 again. then i temped again and it said 98.1 literally seconds later. every day since then i've temped twice - first it shows 97.7 then jumps up to 98.1. so i'm not sure if i o'd the 17th or earlier this month.

anyway, why i am telling you (or myself) this is because yesterday and today i have spotted a little bit. weird! it's only CD 21 and today CD22! i usually spot a little before AF arrives, so normally i wouldn't get excited. but it has NEVER started this soon! so if i o'd the 17th, i'm only 5dpo - and yesterday 4dpo. that seems too early for implantation? but maybe i o'd earlier. who knows. trying not to get excited yet. i have had the slightest twinges of tightness down there - not quite cramps. but i've had that before and it hasn't been pregnancy...

only time will tell. the other thing that is different is that today my temp rose to 98.3. and it dipped the day before i started spotting. am i dreaming? this ttc waiting game is making me crazy.

one other thing. just read a lot online about short luteal phases which i think i have. i barely make it to 10dpo - really it is more like 9 1/2. i think i may be "deficient" where my body is starting my period before it should and makes it really hard for implantation to occur. have i miscarried before and just not known it? i read that vitamin B6 can help and also progesterone cream. i apparently have low levels of progesterone which makes getting pregnant really hard. and B6 and this cream help to lengthen your luteal phase by increasing your amounts of progesterone. i just bought B6 today and started taking. the cream was like $26 so i passed on that for now. also bought folic acid as a good luck talisman.

ugh. must relax.

o.k. trying not to get too hopeful here. but today my temp climbed to 98.5. the highest it has been ever to date. usually it stays a constant 98.1 after O'ing. BB's are feeling full, a little tightness down there, a little heartburn, and the faintest of spotting. but i get all this stuff before AF all the time, so who knows. just maybe not quite this early. and the spotting is more like a creamy CM with just the hint of brown. usually it is wetter and just a little heavier if that makes sense and i'd be getting AF now.

here are my stats, though:

CD16 97.6
CD17 97.7
CD18 98.1
CD19 98.1
CD20 97.6 (i double checked this three times so def. was 97.6)
CD21 98.1
CD22 98.3
CD23 98.5

ugh. the countdown begins till wednesday...
happy easter, everyone!

i'm feeling secretly hopeful - hope i don't get too disappointed... i am on 8dpo - two more days to get through without the evil AF!! i'm making myself wait until friday morning (12dpo) to test. i've been falsely excited before in the past - getting AF a couple hours after testing negative!

but my temp is still high - CD24 and today CD26 both 98.3. the exciting bit is that i spotted, well, not really even spotted - more like dark creamy CM on 4dpo and 5dpo. but then it disappeared! now i'm as clear and dry as can be! that has never happened to me before. if i spot, it continues on until AF arrives.

i feel different. i feel "full/slight ache" with twinges down there. not quite crampy. i had headaches this weekend which i never get. i'm not that tired, but i do feel like my metabolism is faster - definitely more "low sugar" moments. tonight i feel hot - almost like a bit feverish. like how you feel when you are sleep deprived. my bbs are sore, but same as always before AF. although today, the nipples felt more sore than usual. and i feel like i think AF is starting, i go the bathroom, and nothing. dry as can be. it doesn't feel exactly like i have to pee, but it feels like that really slight tingle - where i think it may be AF coming. sorry if TMI.

ugh. only time will tell... but if i get a BFN or AF, this was the worst joke my body has played on me so far!!!

just a couple more days...

i made it through today without AF... although tomorrow is the big day. if she were on schedule, she'd come tomorrow morning or early afternoon. temp today remained at 98.3 but i didn't feel pregnant today. i also had the faintest of spotting again. same as like on 4dpo and 5 dpo, but it made my heart sink. AF, are you trying to come?

it still feels tight down there, but i've had that before AF. so i don't know what to think. i'm so ready to be really disappointed tomorrow...

i want this so badly! argh. one more day to make it through - AF STAY AWAY!! please, God, let me be pregnant this time...

girls, i'm pretty sure i'm out this month. AF still has not arrived, but i'm not feeling too good about it. My temp went down today to 98.0. i started spotting again yesterday and today which makes me think AF is around the corner. i kept feeling wet all day, but then nothing but really light spotting when i wiped. very light cramps/ mega pressure down there all day.

this has been a weird month. not at all typical which is making me crazy thinking i could be pregnant when i'm not...

sorry this is TMI but the real kicker was tonight - i just went to the bathroom and was super constipated which made me pass bright red blood. AF still hasn't really started, but i'm pretty sure she will super early tomorrow morning.

i guess one good thing is that maybe my vitamin B6 is working - giving me more than 10dpo... i keep wondering if that is our biggest problem- that i don't produce enough progesterone.

baby dust, everybody!

AF arrived this morning FULL SPEED. onto the next cycle...

man, i'm bummed. i really thought maybe this was it. just goes to show you how powerful the mind is into creating real, physical symptoms. what a weird month. i wish i could relax and not read too much into symptoms. but you just get your hopes up so much.

at least the good news was that i made it to 11dpo. maybe vitamin B6 does work a little bit.

baby dust to all -
