I hope everyone is well!! I feel like I have been posting so much lately, so sorry in advance ;) I am CD11 and waiting to O. I am starting a fiercely strict fertility schedule today (LOL) ---- fertility smoothie for breakfast with vitamins, and a fertility massage with castor oil packs every night along with my Fertility Tea and Pregnitude supplement. I am stocked and ready to go with OPKs, PreSeed, and a Moon Cup (read about it alot and saw a video on youtube - let me know if you wanna know about it) and I am in GAME MODE!!! I AM going to get pregnant in the next couple of cycles, I can feel it!! :) FX to everyone Oing or testing this week - Can't wait to hear about you all!

 @ Kristen: I know no one says this anymore, but...you go girl!!! Lol. Seems like you have all your ducks in a row, and are trying absolutely everything in your power. You deserve some results! Tons of positive thoughts and baby dust to you this week, lady:) FX times a million!

AFM, I'm 9 DPO and trying sooo hard to be patient! DH's brother got married this past Saturday, so last week was a busy one helping them with the wedding, and I didn't have much time to think about it. Now that things have settled down, I'm so excited to test I can't hardly stand it! But I only have one test in the house, and I'm saving it for Saturday. I haven't noticed any symptoms other than being tired, but I think that's just from all the busyness last week and still getting up with our puppy once a night. We shall see! Saturday can't come soon enough:)

Happy Monday!

@ Kristen: I am so proud of how much you do for yourself :-)  I'll have to Google those smoothies and the Moon Cup.  How are the smoothies?  Good luck!!!

@ littlebit: glad you had distractions to help pass the 2ww!  FX for Saturday :-)  You also have a week to pick up other tests, if you like!

AFM, 8dpo and not hopeful, BUT I'm going to the dr tomorrow so I'll get my game face on to not take "no" for an answer.  On 6dpo my chart had a temp drop that looks suspiciously like an implantation dip (I've studied way too many charts!), but I'm not hopeful.  I don't feel PG at all.  No changes, just my usual pains.

I photographed a friend's brothers wedding on Saturday (mostly for fun, wedding photography is not something I'm serious about) and I honestly wasn't thinking about the 2ww AT ALL!  Such a nice change!!  The wedding also had me nervous and stressed for a few days leading up to it (HUGE responsibility) so I know that would have decreased my chances of conception too.  But DH and I have some fun stuff coming up so hopefully that keeps us distracted :-)

 Hi ladies! 

@Kristen--don't apologize, keep posting. I love staying up to date. You are a TTC queen, seriously!

@littlebit--we're pretty much in the same boat with our TWW, stay strong, I know you can eait to test! ;)

@Winterbride--Temp drops sound positive, I'm wondering how many symptoms there really are during the TWW. FX for a BFP! Glad you had something to keep you distracted. These two weeks can be rough.

AFM I am 14DPOish and AF is expected tomorrow. I had slight spotting on Friday (11DPOish) and I NEVER spot before AF, so of course I Googled the crap out of that. Basically I got no where...Implantation bleeding is very rare and from what I Googled it seems like it could go either way. I keep thinking everything going on in my body is a symptom. Other than the spotting, I had heartburn yesterday, I'm sleepy (I'm always sleepy though?), and I would kill for chocolate--that one makes me think AF is ready to arrive. Like Littlebit I have one test at home, so I'm trying to hard to hold off on testing, I'll test Thursday if no AF by then.

UGH, testing is ALL that is on my mind. AF is due to arrive today and so far no sign. She's been a day late the past few months so I'm TRYING to hold out until Thursday, I just don't want to waste my last digi. HELP! haha.

@ Nicole - you girls crack me up! If I were that anxious I'd use a lunch break or the way home from work to grab some more ;-) I've actually stocked up (on sale) on FRER and Clear Blue digis for when the day comes that I think I stand a chance. If you lived closer I'd say swing by and I'll give you one!

@winterbride: You're too sweet! Sometimes only having one test in the house is the only way I can keep myself from testing way too early and bumming out over a negative that had no possibility of being positive. Lol. And now that we've been TTC for so long, somehow AF is easier to see than a negative test at 9 DPO that has me wondering for the rest of my cycle...

@ winterbride -- Hah! I was so close to running to the dollar store for some cheapies during lunch, too bad you aren't closer. ;) I have a Clear Blue digi in my desk drawer which makes this even tougher to hodl out on testing. When I bought that pack I was shocked how pricey they are.  I'm trying to hold out on spending any money when mother nature has her free (and cruel) way to let me know if it's a BFN. Good idea though, I think I may stock up if I find a sale!

I'm currently on CD 10 and just started OPK (again). DH and I decided to take some time off from the temping, opk etc and just not deal with anything TTC related. It was really hard given the fact that we thought we would conveive right away and didn't. Oh well we're back at it but, this time we're like "It will happen when it happens". GL to everyone!!
