well... my AF never showed. I was on cycle day 36 and starting to get really annoyed. My temps were higher, but all over the place. My boobs hurt and I was VERY moody. So finally gave in on 13 dpo and I tested ...

It was positive!

I about peed my pants. I didn't update sooner because I was afraid that my blood test would come back low or show something bad. I decided today that I should tell you guys because even if that does happen it would be better to have all of your support than to go through all of that alone. I still don't know the results of blood work, but I just thought I would share.

Ladies, I'll join you next cycle (am CD 18). I decided to pass this one (somehow I was not quite ready).

Kerisue, sorry to hear that you got a negative! Good luck to everybody else still in the game.

aww! i'm sorry Kerisue! I'm still waiting. I will test on Tuesday, which will be 14dpo and cycle day 37. I'm not feeling very hopeful, I feel like AF is coming.

Well it's a bust this month. Another negative at 15 dpo. I guess all that spotting was a period? But it was waaaay early and I never had any flow whatsoever. Why oh why would my cycle pick this month- the month I start ttc- to go completely wacko?! Now I don't know what day to count as day 1 for the next cycle. I'll be calling the doctor tomorrow. :(

Hopefully Holly and Christa have better news.

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.

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).

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! 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!
