Alright so quick relapse! Ever since AF ended I have had mixed EWCM and watery/sticky CM. Not usual at all for me! Not really concerned about it though. Just went to the bathroom and there was a surplus of EWCM with some tinted color to it! The second wipe it came away with slight yellow/brownish and red speckles?! Took two OPK's. One said positive and one was negative. Don't really know what to believe here!

A part of me wants to google if it's possible to O super early and another part of me (the more rational side) thinks it's spotting from O. I have gained alot more self confidence over the last couple days with working out! I feel better and wonder why I stopped working out in the first place?! Signed up for my first 5K run in denver this year! It is called The Graffiti Run! 25 bucks to sign up and you get skin safe color paint to have fun and smash all over yourself! It will be a blast! I am so excited!

So an update...Friday I started getting some brownish ewcm. Saturday, more ewcm. Saturday evening, faint positive on an HPT test I took On a whim! Wake up Saturday morning, slight red spotting when i checked my CP and it feels like AF is coming with low dull cramps just once and then get another faint positive! Nothing since then.

Oh, I hope it is implantation spotting and not a chemical. GL and KUP!

I hope that this is not a chemical either!

So here is an update! The only spotting I had was yesterday morning and through out the day I had EWCM with some brown streaks. The DH and I BDed last night and he didn't say that there was any spotting color!

There is a ton of EWCM today. I used the newer batch of wondfos that I got in the mail to test today just in case the others were a bad batch and I got the same line! AF is not due until towards the end of this month.

Yesterdays spotting scares me in the fact that the line on the test is not getting darker. Oh well...we can only wait and see. FRER is not picking anything up yet either. I am remaining skeptical. But everyone I talk to says they see lines!

There is also some low dull achey cramps that are very AFish. That is the other thing that worries me!

Test results came back negative at the doctors office today. I am sad and hurt and all I want to do is curl up in a little ball and sit in the dark. But the weird thing is is that I am getting almost positive and positive OPKs still. Weird right?

Hey ladies. So the doctor called back last night to apologize for her rudeness. Earlier she told me if I was TTC I shouldn't be doing intense abdominal workouts. She apologized then recommended I not do strenuous workouts in general but especially abdominal. She told me there was still a good chance that I could O again but according to my chart, I don't think that is going to happen.

I had the faintest of faint lines on the wondfo again this morning, so faint I am considering it negative. Funny thing is, looking back on this journal I should have listened to myself and my body! I knew that all that EWCM and wetness after AF was not normal. Oh well. Maybe I will O again, maybe AF will hurry up and get here. Maybe I will win the lottery lol.

This has been harder than I thought it would be for me. Today was better, I don't want to curl into a ball and cry anymore. I am going to be consuming my days with runnning and working out somemore. I am not going to stop working out because working out makes me feel better so I am going to continue doing that, just nothing to strenuous.

The DH and I cuddled alot last night. It was much needed. Next month we are going to seriously go all natural. No temping, no OPK's, no early testing, none of that. I am still going to be taking my prenatals and folic acid though. I started taking extra folic acid on Monday on top of the 400 mg in the prenatals, so 1200 mg a day of folic acid. Can't hurt right?

Sorry you are feeling down Hopefully going all natural next month will help you feel more relaxed and relieve some of the pressure. Working out can be a great stress reliever!!! Hopefully that is helping as well. So glad you and DH got some good cuddle time - that can really be the best cure.

Elle, Thank you for being so nice! It has been hard. Today was my day off and I just bummed around! I am going to keep temping for now until next cycle starts. Today I had more EWCM and watery-ness. I am just shrugging it off because it is probably nothing. Temp was back up today so I am going to assume that it is AF on her way with the usual temp rise then waiting for it to fall down when she comes!

I made it to my next round of testing for the Sheriff's Department! All of JM's good thoughts and prayers worked! I am excited and nervous. But here it goes.

I have found a way to take my mind off of TTC! I am now proudly addicted to the show The Vampire Diaries! Hehehe..May be a bit pathetic but it is working and I really addicted!

The DH has started helping me do pushups and it is insane! My collar bone hurt! I can do crunches like crazy but cannot do a normal pushup to save my life!

Thanks Elle! It has been a crazy time! Just found out that the application I put into for Coors has been looked at! My interview with them is also next Wednesday. I am freaking excited!! It would be a huge pay raise.

On a TTC note, my temps are being weird still and FF is trying to tell me that I Od again and that I am on 3 DPO!!! What a crazy roller coaster! Feels like O pains yesterday and today so I have no idea what to think...
