Check-in ~ Week of July 8th

How is everyone doing?  Recovering from the holiday weekend?


I'm 5dpo and refusing to get too hopeful. My luteal phase issues usually pop up 6-8dpo, so that's more what I'm thinking of, not counting down to test.

Hey ladies!
I'm 9dpo today. Absolutely zero symptoms. Not going to test until Saturday unless AF shows up.
This month wasn't great for us, our timing was a little off during O and I've been really stressed about work and summer classes. We'll see what happens!
@kristen so sorry! Will be praying for you, I'm so sorry you are going through this. Have a wonderful vacation!!

 So sorry Kristen, I will be praying for you hopefully cycle 12 is your cycle!! 


I am having something pretty weird happen to me, I am trying to not stress it and not really think about it. My cycles have been crazy since coming off of DEPO, my second real period was June 17th, on CD 11 I started using OPK, (the clearbule advanced digi) On CD 17th (July 3rd) I got a smiley flashy face which means high fertility (we had been doing the BD since July 2nd), on July 4th CD 18th I got a positive for O with all my opk, wondfo, clear blue digi, on July 5th I got a positive with the wondfo at 12pm, after that the opks have been negative. Now on Saturday I got some pinkish blood, on Sunday it was brownish and pinkish and it's only when I wipe, maybe like 1xs in the day and today I had some more pinkish blood, I thinking that it's way to early for implantation bleeding if I am pregnant... not getting my hopes up but praying to God that this is it...


Tons of baby dust to us all...

@ Kristen: so, so sorry.  Enjoy your vacation with DH :-)


@ cbrust: some months won't go as well as others with BD as "life happens".  It's not over till AF shows, and if it does here's to hoping next month has more BD ;-)


@ MK: keep us in the loop!  Spotting sounds promising...

Hi girls!

I'm CD16, but according to FF, no ovulation until the start of next week. I bought the Clear Blue digital opk this week and have started using those (no happy face yet though!) So hopefully we will time everything well! This is our first month TTC and I am so torn between excitement and trying to prepare myself for this to possibly be a longer journey (DH is 3 years post chemo and radiation for lymphoma). We go to Maui next week though so that should help me just relax and keep me from obsessing!

I'm 10DPO today. Had some brown spotting yesterday and today. BFN yesterday and today. I'm assuming AF is on its way, although this is really early for me if so.

@ajfisher: You may want to retest in 5days time. The timing is about right for implantation for you, and what you described sounds to me like implantation bleeding. FX for you!

So today I'm 12DPO. Last night I tested again (I've been testing morning and evening just to have a record if this cycle is a no go of what the tests look like), and I thought I saw a line on a wondofo, but I just chalked it up to nothing. The brown blood/CM has stopped (yesterday - warning TMI - it was brown and stretchy but like rubber cement). This AM I took another test and it looks like a faint line, but darker than the one last night. It's still not as dark as the faintest OPK, though, so I think I might just be insane.

My other thought is that maybe I'm not as far DPO as I think I am. I had EWCM + light pink spotting 4 days after FF said I O'd. So I might only be 8DPO today. 


I felt like I was pregnant last week, but this week...not at all. I just feel like AF is coming.


Here's three pictures for comparison - one is normal, one is contrast added, and one is just inverted:


So today I m photo 3479605-1


So today I m photo 3479605-2


So today I m photo 3479605-3

Ajfisher: FX that this is the start of your BFP


Kristen: So sorry sweetie. Sending all the prayers and baby dust I've got


As for me, I am currently 7dpo on my fourth round of clomid and having absolutely NO symptoms. Not even my normal post-O stuff. Not testing this month unless I actually miss AF. My temps aren't as high as normal for me either. I have to go in today to do another progesterone level to see if I am ovulating strong enough or if we need to up the dosage. However, even if it is not good I don't know if we are going to continue ttc or take a break. DH just found out he is being laid off next month. I know he will find something else and I make plenty to support us but I don't know if it is the best time to have a baby. At the rate we're going it might take awhile anyways. We will see

chekcing back in again..


still no BFP however AF was due friday/today and never showed. (!!!) i usually get horrid cramps day before/during the night and haven't had a single ache yet. I noticed today at lunch my sandwich and coke tasted weird. interesting. also came home from work and fell asleep on the couch for 3 hours, which was totally out of the norm for me. 


trying to decide if i should go out and get a FRER or a clearblue for the morning.. ugh!
