Anyone in the two week wait?

I am 6 days past ovulation and I just wish everything would hurry up already. I am in the grumpiest of grumpy moods. Hope all you TTC ladies are doing well.

The two week wait sucks! It's really frustrating. I was also really grumpy and moody. Good luck. Baby dust all around.

Thanks... I don't think this is the month, but I just hate waiting around for things to happen.

I'm in the two week wait too! It's my first month trying. Image fingers crossed for both of us! I'm 10 dpo now. I've been spotting for 3 days. :( Could be implantation bleeding I suppose since it started 7 dpo, but I think it's just the old AF starting up early. I typically spot a couple days before the flow and I'm feeling pretty pms-y. *sigh* Of course I didn't expect it to happen my first month (not at my age!) but it's still disappointing.

Kerisue! You and I are going to be cycle buddies... I can't believe how excited I am to have an online cycle buddy. LOL Anyways, I hope this is it for you... that would be just AMAZING! Even though I would lose my newly found cycle buddy... it would at least be for a good reason!

Cycle buddies sounds fun!

so I've been spotting all week still and no flow. I've never spotted this long without an actual period (which I'm not quite due for anway). this worries me whether I'm pregnant or whether I'm not because I don't know what it means. i have one digital pregnancy test which i didn't want to waste on an early test (I'm currently 12 dpo) but I just wanted to know so badly so I bought one of the tests at the dollar store and went to the fast food bathroom next door (I can only guess how many others have done the same thing!). Unfortunately I have never done a $1 test before and you're supposed to have a cup of pee and use a dropper, rather than pee on the stick. Well I had no cup so it was quite comical how it all worked out. I'll spare you the details but it came out BFN. Boooooo! I am disappointed but trying to console myself that maybe the $1 test done incorrectly in the fast food bathroom wasn't accurate. we'll see.

Anyone else?

Kerisue, I really hope that spotting is good news! Those dollar store tests are ridiculous. When I found out I was pregnant the first time I kept getting inconclusive results, not negative. Finally I ran to CVS and got a regular 3 pack of tests and before I even set the test down got a positive. I hope that maybe it reads higher amounts of hcg or that maybe its just crappy and that you will get a BFP soon.

I am currently waiting on AF. She is 1 day late and I am 11 dpo. I will try really hard to wait until 15 dpo to test (unless of course she shows up before then).

Baby dust to everyone. Keri, I'm glad you're TTC! In terms of the dollar tests, I actually bought mine from Amazon. The Wondfo brand is the best. If you actually look up tests strips side by side, the Wondfo has one of the highest ratings in terms of accuracy. I think I bought 25 or 50 of them for about $12. Check them out at Amazon. Make sure the strips you get are blue and say Wondfo on them. Sometimes they send you something else. That's the bad part about it. But when they make a mistake they do correct it.

Any hoot, that's what I used when I was TTC.
