CD24- 9DPO

BFN this morning on both an IC and FRER. Will be purchasing more FRER tomorrow morning. Only 4 days til AF and I'm already feeling out. I think I'll genuinely be surprised if a BFP shows up this weekend. Still feeling bloated, gassy, achy, and nauseous at times but I blame half of that on overeating around the holidays.

No Christmas cheer here...

CD26- 11DPO

I still see the same faint looking line on my FRER except I'm feeling more crampy and upon checking CP this morning I had some brown spotting. Have a feeling I'm out already and a little irritated these dumb tests keep giving me either evaps or indents. *sigh*

Happy New Year to me... not.

CD28- 13DPO

Well, AF is supposed to arrive anytime between today and Tuesday. I've had some signs but no full blown spotting yet. I took an equate cheapie last night and SWORE I saw something within the time frame but still pretty light to be 13DPO (if I ovulated on CD15). If I only implanted at 11DPO I could understand the light testing. I'm pretty confused though. Still have the urgency to pee, breasts were really sore yesterday, and I'm very bloated and gassy still. Back has ached pretty badly for the last couple days and on and off pressure down there.

I'm going to use SMU and my last equate test this morning and if it leads to nothing than I'm just going to play the waiting game.

I'll update later once the test is complete. Until next time...

CD4:

Nothing exciting to report today. AF is pretty much on her way out already thank goodness. Was so bloated and crampy the previous couple days. By tomorrow I bet it'll be just light spotting.

In other news, I went ahead and ordered some IC opks and pg tests. Told myself I was not spending the amount of money on opks and FRERs I did at Walmart this past cycle. That was just silly. I'm also promising myself to wait to test with opks until next weekend (CD 13) and with a PG test til at least 9/10DPO. Testing at 8 was just silly and then I drove myself nuts with the faint lines. Which, I'm thinking was a chemical because that was just too odd to have faint lines like that out of two different FRER boxes and on some dollar store cheapies.

In the meantime I'll continue charting, focus on maintaining a healthy diet and taking my prenatals. I did have a couple glasses of wine last night with DH while we watched a movie but otherwise the goal is to not eat out this month and limit my alcohol consumption. Not that we buy much anyway...gets too expensive and I hate feeling bloated and blah the next day.

Until next time...

CD 5:

ICs shipped out yesterday. Should receive them by tomorrow or Monday. Anxious to start testing and see a better progression now that I'm not limited to only 6-7 tests. I'm not convinced I actually O'd last month.

In other news, we're taking some BIG steps to revamping our finances. I'm really trying to push my Independent Business, as well as, making a conscious effort to really get some things paid off and get a newer vehicle before baby #2 arrives. We aren't swimming by any means but we're certainly not soaking it up on the beach. 5 years ago we had some (meaning my husband) financial issues. Defaulted loans, etc. We've now become homeowners, paid off those student loans, and, purchased many luxury items. I can't help but be a little stressed after the holidays though with first of the year payments and things due though.

If we can just get past this month I think we'll be okay. Mortgage payment day always sucks though.

Until next time...

CD7:

OPKs showed up yesterday, yay! Only a couple more days then I can start testing. Today I woke up without spotting so I'm hopeful I'll O again around CD15/16. Sxs wise I'm mainly just feeling achy. I think it's from working several days in a row overnight and not sleeping well.

Until next time...

Here's my OPK from this morning. I wasn't going to test but had a few gushes of CM yesterday so was curious. Plus, I've got like 40 OPKs...why not?! I was actually surprised. Despite it being negative it's much darker than I anticipated. Maybe an early O this month?

Trying for a boy this round so I think we'll end up BD closer to O instead of like with DD we did it like every other day. FX!

Here's today's test. Much darker than yesterday for sure but still negative. Come on little eggie...gear up!

Sxs today are non-existent other than some slight back pain. Maybe a little bloated but we ate poorly yesterday.

Watery cm, soft cervix, and increased sex drive. OPKs still point to no O but I'm definitely closer than I was a couple days ago.

No sxs otherwise just lots of BD. Temps are hanging well in the 97s and no drastic changes yet. Anxious to see where we are by Monday.

Until next time...

It's negative but it looks like it's starting to get darker.

CD 14:

Here's my progression over the last couple days. Last night and today's are the most convincing but IRL they still aren't as dark as the control line. Had a temp dip today of almost a full degree. Wondering if by this evening or tomorrow morning the test will be pos. FX.

Otherwise I'm having mild/dull cramps/pressure and some slight left-sided O pains. DH and I BD earlier this morning and will probably aim to again tomorrow. Hope we catch the eggie if she ever lets go!

Until next time...

CD15:

Technically tomorrow could be O day but with last night's super positive and today's negative in combination with O pains and a temp shift I think today's O day. I'll get a better idea once I see tomorrow's temp and test.

So, it's onto the TWW for this girl! Finally, yay! This cycle has seemed to take forever. I have good feelings about our BD timing and other sxs. In the meantime we need to do some serious cleaning, reorganizing and financial saving. Even if we don't get PG this month the reality is that we need to prep in general for a growing fam.

DH cleaned the living room and kitchen really well yesterday so now today it's my job to clean the bedrooms and bathrooms. Better run, DD is up.

Until next time...
