I'm so excited that we are ready for #2!! Not sure how soon we'll see a BFP though because I just delivered a surrogate baby in early August, so my cycles are a little out of whack still.

My OB gave me a pack of BC pills to help regulate things, but AF is still very confused! )

I'm not sure when my period officially started this month because I had a little bleeding before I finished the pack of BC, but once I finished the pack it really kicked in 9/29.

I haven't been monitoring my temps or anything, so who knows when or if I've ovulated yet. I have been spotting for the last few days, not exactly sure why, but hopefully my cycle will get back to normal soon.

I'll probably take an HPT on 10/24 just to see, but I'm not expecting anything this month. Fingers crossed for a BFP in the next few months!!

I have a 4 yr old daughter! She REALLY wants to be a big sister! After seeing a few of her friends from school have new siblings and then seeing me deliver a surrobaby, she can't wait!

So, after taking a few OPKs and seeing the Test line gradually fade away, I have a hunch that I ovulated somewhere around 10/14. We've been BDing a lot, so I'm sure that we were well within the window.

I started temping, but don't have anything to compare the last few days to.

I've been having some odd twingy/crampy sensations in my uterus this morning...hmmm...

Early warning...I will be peeing on everything in site starting Saturday...maybe even Friday if I just can't wait!

Aisha, from what I understand, LH is often in our system at levels that will give you a faint line on OPKs, but it will surge giving you a dark line 12-36 hours before ovulation. Make sure you are doing OPKs at the same time every day (afternoon is best) and that you don't drink for 4 hours prior as it may dilute your urine causing you to miss your surge. I've even heard that some people will take 2+ OPKs per day in the week they expect the surge to happen just to be sure not to miss it.

AFM, I'm not taking any more OPKs this month since I'm pretty sure I ovulated already. I am still taking my BBT every morning, and I may have had a second shift upward this morning, but I woke up at 4:30am and then went back to sleep until 6, so my temp my have been up a little due to the interrupted sleep.

Had a few more cramps today, but they are less than yesterday...

It will be such a shock if I get a BFP since its our first month trying! Keeping my fingers crossed!

Oh, and I am on CD22

For some reason, I have been feeling flushed, kind of warm all over, this afternoon...not sure what that's about.

There are some weeks that fly by, but the 1WW is not one of them...omg...it feels like Saturday will never get here at this rate! I am starting to overanalyze every possible symptom...i really need to stay distracted!

Sorry to hear about your negative OPKs, hopefully your surge will be here in the next few days.

AFM, I have been having twinges all morning...feeling a little crampy, but not really, just strange sensations - definitely not normal for a usual cycle. My temp is pretty much the same as its been the last several days. Had some mild heartburn earlier, but that might just be a fluke.

I took a dollar tree HPT this morning just so I could pee on something - negative, of course! I know its way too early to get a positive, I'm only 7 dpo - but I couldn't help it!

I do feel pregnant...gosh that would be so crazy if I get a BFP this month since its our first month trying...it took us several months to get a BFP with my daughter.

My temp jumped up this morning, I haven't been temping the whole month, but if it stays up it looks like a triphasic pattern which could be a sign of pregnancy.

My cervix seemed a little higher up today and is definitely softer. My CM was creamy too - sorry for the TMI. I also noticed some bumps on my areolas that are not there normally...but I had them during my surro-pregnancy. I have been nauseous in waves all morning, and I have had heartburn, which I don't normally get.

I would totally order some HPTs online, but I have a feeling that by the time they get here, I will already know. I am out of tests though, so I am going to pick some up today...maybe I'll even take one later - gosh I hate waiting!!

So I woke up super early, like 3 hours early! I took my temp because I read somewhere that you can estimate by adjusting your temp .1 for every 30 minutes. My non adjusted temp was already 97.5!! Based on my chart and adjusting it that will be a second day in the third phase for me!!

I am going to POAS in a few minutes to see if I can confirm my suspicions. Last night I was so dizzy and tired. I was moody too. I sure hope I see a BFP this morning.

Well, I peed...and I'm going to say BFN for now, but I think I may be able to see a hint of a line. It's just too light to see without massive squinting and holding it at an angle, so BFN for today...will test again tomorrow morning.

Thanks ladies!! I hope I get a BFP too! The last couple nights I've been waking up in the middle of the night and then I can't go back to sleep...so annoying!

Anyway, my BBT is at 97.5 again! Yay!! Keep these high temps comin'!!

I took an EPT blue line test yesterday afternoon and think I saw an extremely faint line on that as well - although it may have been an evap...I'm going to test again with FMU in a few hours. I'll keep you posted!

Well, my dollar tree test clearly said BFN. There is still plenty of time for a BFP this cycle. Since I'm using cheapie tests, I will continue to test each morning until AF comes.

Thanks Aisha! I'm thinking of you too!

I held off on taking another HPT this morning...kind of tired of seeing BFNs! Its not a big deal if I don't get a BFP this month, ideally I would like to conceive sometime between January and March. However, we decided to start trying early, so a BFP between now and the end of the year would be a blessing!

I got pregnant in November with my daughter and my surro-pregnancy, so who knows, maybe November is a good month for me! LOL

Anyway, its not over til the witch shows, and so far she's not here (I anticipate her arrival on Wed or Thurs).

Progesterone is an evil hormone! That's why the luteal phase is filled with all those lovely PMS symptoms...its probably a little early to attribute those to pregnancy, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you...I hope you get a BFP this month!!

Well, my temp dropped a little this morning to 97.2, so I didn't take a test.

Sorry for the TMI, but today I still had EWCM, but it had a little blood in it. I haven't had any other signs of AF (no spotting or anything), so if she is not here tomorrow and my temp goes back up, I'll test again, otherwise, better luck next cycle!

Thanks Aisha! Happy 2WW!

Definitely let us know. We are all rooting for you. I myself am on cd#17 and cant stand the wait. I have not tested yet as I know it would be way too early.

Baby dust to you all,

Tonya
