Oh no, that is horrible about another UTI! I wonder if even the second round of meds didn't completely knock it out.

Your temps are very confusing! I guess you will just have to keep BDing!

CD 30/6 DPO

I have dull cramps again today and that lower back ache is more persistent. It burns a little when I'm done peeing, and I'm peeing more frequently, but it's not like I just have the urge to go -- I'm actually peeing a lot each time. I don't know, but my back is starting to hurt more now that I'm at work and in this stupid chair.

I'm going to investigate the thermometer thing. I made a bad choice to begin with -- it's digital, not basal and the read out is wicked fast (less than 10 seconds).

Welp, I need to decide whether I'm going to wait for a new primary care doc to call me or just go to an urgent care place. SIgh.

Maybe you need a different sort of antibiotics? Some infections are resistant to some antibiotics, you may need a stronger one or one thats more broad spectrum. I hope you get it sorted soon.

CD 31/7 DPO
I had a bad backache last night. I couldnt get comfortable. It could be due to me running my last three runs on pavement, something that I haven't been doing often.

I ran last night, did my normal weekday 3 miler. I was so winded the whole time, it was not an easy run. I just did 7 miles on Saturday, so 3, on a regular route, should have been easy. Not so much. And I was dizzy as all get out. Also not normal, unless I'm having sinus issues, which I'm not.

I didn't feel that great last night. Extremely irritable yesterday -- DH was trying his best initially to make me feel better, then he just got the heck out of my way and let me spit venom. I ended up going to bed early -- I had cramps and twinges last night and I couldnt' get comfortable.

It's too early for AF so maybe something else is going on. Idk, I'm trying to explain away my symptoms b/c I don't want to get my hopes up!

Doctors appt: No UTI, no kidney infection. I'm getting blood drawn tomorrow (idk why but they couldn't do it in-office) to see my counts, and she ordered a quant. hcg test, too. I think it'll be too early either way, but who knows.

She thinks its possible I just have a virus, and maybe my urinary tract is just irritated from so much BDing last week.

CD 32/8 DPO

I slept terribly last night. For one thing I kept getting way too hot then way too cold. Couldn't find a good medium. Then at 2 a.m. DH and I were awoken out of a dead sleep to this crazy sound outside, which turned out to be a momma fox. The sound was horrific -- a mixture of a duck and a dog being strangled. Seriously! When I woke up from that I was feeling really sick and had a hard time getting back to sleep -- my back hurt and I just couldn't get comfortable.

Tested today for the heck of it, BFN as expected.
I'm getting bloodwork drawn tomorrow morning. I just discovered that Quest Diagnostics (I think they have these in other states) has an app that, when installed on your phone, will deliver your lab results straight from Quest! So that's pretty cool, especially since my Dr. takes forever to call about results.

I thought the cramps were gone, but lo and behold, they are slight but definitely still there.

I was so tired and out of it yesterday, so I definitely have something going on. I'm leaning towards virus but PG is still possible!

Unfortunately I can't really know how long my LP will be -- just have to wait it out.

I hope that you start to feel better throughout the day. KUP on the lab results, though 8 dpo is a bit too early for pregnancy results. Hopefully you will be pregnant soon and you will feel better!

CD 33/ 9 DPO

I got bloodwork done this a.m. and they said my doc will have them tomorrow. Then I realized that I probably will not know until Tuesday --- my doc is transitioning into retirement and is helping the "new" doctor out, but only on Tuesdays :/

A bit of a temp spike this morning. It is so hard not to read into anything! And even harder when I don't have enough cycles inputted into FF yet to see any patterns. So it's all speculation.

I've been pretty bloated the past two days and my stomach is bothering me. I have some decent cramps going on right now, and I feel "wet" but there really isn't much CM discharge.

It's also hard to know when AF is going to be here -- I only have the last cycle to go on. Still trying very hard not to get my hopes up! Managing expectations is something I have to work on in every area of my life.

So that's that. My guess is that come Tuesday I'll probably know one way or the other anyway (that will be 14 DPO)

I know how hard it can be to not get your hopes up!! Try to stay as busy as possible, it's the only solution. haha. I do slightly wonder if you may have ovulated on CD 29 instead of 23. May just want to keep an eye on that.

I will be keeping everything crossed for you!

Thanks! It's possible, but doubtful. I think my temps were lower those days b/c my bedroom was very cold and my thermometer itself was cold. So far I haven't reached 98.0 unless I had already ovulated.

But keeping it all in mind, you never know!

That totally stinks you have to wait until Tuesday! Go figure, huh?

Hopefully you get your own news this weekend when you test

CD 34/10 DPO

**** computer just f'ed up and deleted my post again ahh!! I'm so not retyping everything so summary:

-Negative tests today, but I'm not too disappointed. It's early, and even if this cycle is a bust, I'm just very happy that my body is figuring itself out.

-temp went up .1 today, good news but no guarantees

-as of today LP is one day longer than last cycle -- so that makes me happy

-breasts are sooooore today, but like w/ other symptoms I have no baseline as to what is "normal" for me pre-AF. I didnt' have this last cycle, but again that doesn't mean much.

DH and I are traveling for his parents' today for a funeral, so no work for either of us. He wants me to test again tomorrow a.m., but I *really* don't want to at my in-laws. It's just weird to me!!!

So sorry about attending a funeral. Yay, about your body!!! Hopefully if you don't get your BFP cycle, you will very soon! Yeah, I wouldn't test at their place either. Wait until Sunday if you can. GL and KUP!

Sorry about the BFN but yea, it is still early!!!

I wouldn't want to test at my in-laws either. Or even at my parents. Half the time I don't want to test before work! I just don't think I would be able to hide my feelings either way. I would try to wait! GL!

Cycle #2, CD 1
Well here I am at CD 1! I'm not sure how many of you saw my post about the dye runs, but I think I had another one last evening (Saturday night). Craziness. I think I might have to spend a bit more this month on something other than Wondfos -- so not even worth wasting emotions over again.

I feel miserable today. My boobs hurt so badly and I swear they are swollen. My lower back is killing me, too. Blah

I woke up with some light bleeding, haven't even filled 1/4 of a tampon today and my temp hasn't dropped yet. It is weird that my cervix is still very high, and it's hard. But perhaps all of that will change once my flow gets heavier?

Is the flow bright red or pink??

I have never had these problems with Wondfo's, but if they were stressing me out like that, I would probably ditch them too!!

It's bright red, a bit thinner. But brown, too.

I just checked my tampon, and there are a few spots of red on it and a lot of brown. Pretty much how it was yesterday, too.
