So I took another test, no pink streak but no second line either. But it wasn't with FMU. So I'm counting it as a negative/evap.
But keeping my hopes up. *sigh*

I decided to put it as a + on FF. If only because I really really REALLY just wanted to. And the line does have color if you look closely, and not just the bleeded bit.
Sure my test this afternoon was a BFN but it's not FMU.
I want to hold onto hope even if only for a day.

Lex, I think at this early point only FMU would show anything. But I'm really hopeful that your first test was a true positive! When are you testing again?

I'm testing again on Tuesday (the 22d) if I'm nice, tomorrow if I'm naughty

Probably tomorrow. If I got a faint line with FMU today I should tomorrow with FMU as well. Perhaps darker. And hopefully it won't bleed. (the 2d one I took didn't bleed).

This afternoon I played around with the picture in the Gimp & by reducing the test to a strip of it towards the top (it didn't bleed up there), and ONLY the results part, the border detection algorithm picks up the 2d line. So it's for sure there, and with color.

Dan is SOOOO sweet. We were out of plastic cups after my 2 tests this morning, and he bought me some at the mall as an "early christmas gift" LOL. I loved the way he put it and I was expecting some small "classic" gift like cheap earrings or some tea and then I see all these plasic cups!

Well it's a BFN this morning. Must have been an evap yesterday. Maybe the dye bled and just fixed somewhat onto the pre-dented line or something. Who even knows?

Well as I'd tell any which one of us in the same situation, it's only 11 DPO, my temps are still up, and there's always next cycle (I'm only saying that to myself, to anyone else that would be somewhat insensitive)

Aww thanks
Well I just got "home" for christmas (actually I consider our apartment to be home but I mean the place I grew up, with my parents and siblings)
So I'm happy and there was lots of catching up to do.
I'll wait a couple more days to test, and only if my temps stay up. I can't deal with very more BFNs this cycle. I'd almost rather AF.

Enjoy your family, Lex and get some relaxation in. I really hope AF stays away for you!

Well still no sign of the witch, which means this cycle my LP is longer than last (yay!) so hopefully she'll stay away again.
I'm actually tempted to ask my mom for some progesterone cream since I know she has some. I figure every little bit helps. I scoffed at it at first but I guess she's right although for different reasons (she is obviously not using it for the same purpose as I would)
I just really really really want a baby!!!!!!

But would the cream raise my BBT artificially?

I'm so freaking out about AF I don't want to see her AT ALL in 2010.

Today I've been pretty moody (I'm glad it's christmas, kinda counterbalances everything) and my breasts are still sore and tender (yay! I jump up and down every now and then to check that they still hurt). I've also been peeing more often than usual but not enough to be VERY noticable, I wouldn't notice if I wasn't hoping for this.
My stupid skin is breaking out. And I had another nosebleed today.

I'm feeling guilty because I ate cookie dough, forgetting about the raw egg in it. Ugh. Hope it doesn't harm baby!

DH & I have been talking about names (it's so cute, HE launched the topic!! he's almost more excited about this cycle than I am, his hopes are almost up higher than mine) and we realized we both really like David. (but I told him NO, his middle name will NOT be Bowie!!!) And for a girl, Natasha, ESPECIALLY if I get a christmas BFP. If I'm pregnant this cycle a boy would have Noel as a middle name (we don't like it enough for a first name).


My suitcase has *interesting* contents :
  • a BBT thermometer
  • prenatals
  • HPTs
  • plastic cups
  • a mooncup
  • pain meds in case the witch shows
  • a little christmas outfit for a newborn just in case I get that BFP because it would be so cute to announce it that way!

Woo hoo!!! Bleeding gums when brushing my teeth (no pain, not a lot of blood, just a little) and I've been having nosebleeds (just a little in the tissue when I blow my nose)

Early Pregnancy Symptom - Bleeding Gums/Nose | Countdown to Pregnancy

This page seems to confirm that this could be a sign, especially since I'm in the right DPO time frame for that to happen to me!!! I'm holding on to hope so much that I almost don't want to have to wake up tomorrow because I don't know how I'll react if my temp is down or I get AF or another BFN.

I was doing fine hopes-wise until my evap/odd test on Sunday. Now my hopes are sky-high.

Turns out my mom's cream actually said that it should NOT be used by TTC or pregnant women because it's actually a "balancing" cream. But since it's in the fine print she didn't see it when she told me about it. Soooo I'll just have to rely on my own body this cycle at least.

Sounds like lots of symptoms... I hope they are RPS (real preg symptoms) and not IPS (imaginary preg symptoms)!!

Your chart is looking really promising!! Hope this is it for you!!!

Great. Now I am getting new IPS symptoms (thought they were real because new and odd). And I probably should consult a dentist too now. Just lovely.

This morning I woke up to a low temp, cramps and the stupid evil witch. Where is the spanish inquisition when you need them?

So I'm definitely going with the evap theory, it's less depressing than a CP.

Here goes cycle #5 of TTC. Which will probably be epically long with the stress from the move. (stress makes me O late, my longest cycle was the one where I started a new job)
