So this morning I had a temp dip and a tiny bit of spotting. CD20. I ALWAYS get breakthrough bleeding between CD18 and CD23 so I'm not surprised that I got spotting. AF is gearing up. My back is sore and the girls are tender/burning.

Why does AF feel like PG?

DH is SO disappointed. I have to say, I'm a little too. If DTD 6 times in 5 days prior to O doesn't catch the egg, than I don't know what does. It really shows that sometimes it's all about luck.

Hope you girls catch that egg. Someone around here needs to get knocked up for heaven's sake!

That is what frustrates me is all the BDing right before ovulating.

Sorry to hear about the spotting. AF needs to piss off!!

I hate that they are the same, too!! My girls are hurting worse than they ever have before, I have troubling sleeping at night because they hurt and my back and stomach hurt, too. Sometimes it feels like I am going to be sick and other times it feels like gas pains.

Leia, could it be possible that it was an implantation dip and IB? I have my fx'd that is what it is and not af getting ready to rear her ugly head!!

Well, if it was an implantation dip & bleeding, it sounds like it would be the same symptoms? I say...it ain't over till the fat lady sings, and she hasn't sung yet!

I typically get no reliable symptoms of AF, even when I was regular.

How many dpo will you test? FX'd for you!

Don't give on this cycle just yet. The spotting could be a positive sign of pregnancy. What were your last pregnancies like?

I'm giving up. Temp went back up today, but spotting continues. Cervix is low hard and closed. AF is around the corner. I had spotting once when I was PG with my son, at like 6 wks or something. I don't know, I didn't know I was pregnant until over 9 wks. (That was a fun conversation: "Honey I'm late." "How late" " Like 27 days late").

Truly Pissed Off. I didn't even have the heart to tell DH that I spotted this morning, he was like a giddy school boy counting down the days until we test. Honestly, I think he wants a baby more than I do at this point. I'm just waiting for AF at this point so I can call the OB and start getting bloods done and maybe another tube test (maybe something went screwy after the D&C in march?) DH's sperm count last Oct was 45 mil per sampling with excellent mot and morph so it's not him. With all the times we DTD prior to 0, that's 270 MILLION boys swimming around Crying WHERE'S WALDO! Couldn't at least one find that egg? I mean geez!

Sorry, just frustrated. My bioclock has turned into one of those bomb shelter alarms that could be heard over 9 counties. Vent over.

AND just to add insult to injury, I'm eating all the junk food I want today and I called my OB and made an appt for after AF ends.

I would seriously be pissed off too if I was experiencing the same thing. Vent Away!

Hopefully your Dr will be able to fix it so you can move on. Now I'm cheering on AF to visit you as quickly as possible. Sorry for the disappointment. Hugs!!!

Maybe it's implantation spotting! We'll have to wait it out and see I know what you mean. I feel the same way too. I get so tired of hearing maybe you're pregnant every time I'm not feeling well from DH.

Whatever happens Leia, we are here for you.

I would love for you to be preggers though.

I completely feel your frustration! I could have written your post myself. I am in the same predicament right now, with a whacky temp this morning that went under the cover line as well as some brownish CM yesterday when wiping. So, either implantation? or AF? I also look at my chart and think, 'how the he11 could we not have caught the egg?' If AF shows up, I honestly think I'll go into a depression. AND the sad thing is that this is only the first month temping and ttc after the m/c. I don't know how a lot of ladies here do this month after month for years...I would lose my mind, that's for sure.

Anyway, I really hope AF stays far away from both of us!!!

Woke up this morning at 4AM and took my temp. It was too close to my normal wake up time of 5:45. It was down just a tiny bit. I went to the restroom and went back to bed. It took me about an hour to fall back to sleep. I woke up 35 min later and retook my temp and it had crashed. I charted that temp. I figured that was more realistic since AF was coming anyway.

DH begged me to POAS and I told him there wasn't any point and told him my temp had crashed. I didn't tell him about the earlier temp. I feel so negative and I know it's no good for me, but I can't help it. No spotting today, but that is typical. I always spot for 3 - 5 days, then skip 1 - 3 days then get AF.

I have pretty lousy AF cramps right now. DPO9. Last pregnancy I implanted on DPO9 and DH knows it so he still has hope. I feel bad that I'm not happy and encouraging. Maybe if I had PG symptoms, but I only have AF symptoms. I'm not even looking forward to getting AF so I can start a new cycle. I just want to crawl into bed and sleep.

Sorry I'm not being a happy girl today ladies. Just depressed. I'll cheer up soon.

Don't cheer for her until after CD 25. That'll be a 12 day luteal phase. I need to keep her away at least for that long. I'm pushing for at least a 12 day luteal phase.

So no AF, No AF. No AF. Stay Away Witch. Stay Away witch.

LOL. I totally and completely CAVED this morning. Temp went back up and DH rallied my spirits so I POAS. BFN. In fact, that pee stick couldn't be anymore negative. There was actually a white strip where my line should have been, that was whiter than the rest of the strip. I was so afraid DH was going to be upset but he said, "Well, you probably just implanted, so you still have 2 or 3 days before it'll show up."

Always the optimist.

I Love Love Love his optimism. I'm sure it can frustrate rate you at times, but he sounds so sweet.

That sounds like a faulty test and maybe you should test again today?? Please!!
