I am CD 25 as of Monday and 10 dpo. Before having Amelia I had 28-29 day cycles, but now the first one was 21 days and the second 33 days, and I don't think either cycle involved ovulation. This cycle I seem to have returned to my pre-pregnancy norm at least somewhat. I've had cramps a bit today though, so I'm trying to convince myself it is implantation, not an impending period. I'm planning to wait until CD 28, but it might not be super effective until I see high temps and I get past CD 33. It's driving me crazy!

Okay I have something weird to add...due to some *strange* new CM, I decided to use my last OPK, and it came out positive in like 30 seconds and got very very dark, okay I am completely confused now. I decided to recheck with the hpt and it was negative. ACK!! what is going on? I told dh back to BD'ing for the next 48 hrs! could I "O" 2 times this month? my body is being very wacky right now.
here's my chart if anyone cares to take a peak..and tell me what is going on...lol

You guys are too cute. I hope everyone is preggars!! I'll be an honorary member of your club, as my little sister is in the same boat. She took a test this morning which came back negative but she is 12 dpo. She's coming to visit this weekend to celebrate Evan's 1st birthday and I told her she could use a leftover HPT that I have. She's testing on Friday morning. I'm so excited for you girls!! Good luck!

Hi Tracey! I am 11dpo, CD27
I tested at 10dpo also and also got a neg. kinda expected it, I also am not feeling "pregnant," if you know what I mean. I think I'll start AF in a while, have no idea when its supposed to be. My temps are jumping up and down still, but still way above coverline. I have decided to break for the week and ignore FF except for entering my temps! how well I will do this I have no idea. I am trying to fill up each day with a project or somewhere to go so that I don't go completely insane waiting. I am not going to test until Saturday @ 15dpo, maybe wait till Monday. My dh said to hold onto the one remaining test strip till then so that I know I have to wait, ugh! I think I'm too scared to see a negative, and just as scared to see a +++.

We are running all the same symptoms, though my nausea went away on Sunday after 5 days straight. I am still having huge hunger pains, headache, cramps, bloating...but this could be all pre-AF. I am really trying not to look too much into each little symptom now because its driving me batty!

Good luck everyone!!! I pray that at least one of us get pg by the end of our cycle :o)

So, this thread serves a dual purpose:
1) so we all could "meet" everyone who is in the same position we are in (I know there are a few of us, (Elizabeth, DJA, AliMarie -- are we missing anyone? Members sound in here!)
and
2) so we could find out when everybody plans to start testing! (dpo)
(Or if you already have, when, and what was your result!)

As I posted elsewhere, I was impatient [:I], and tested at 10dpo, and, not surprisingly, got a negative. I just read last night on Fertility Friend that the average number of dpo for a positive test is 13.6. It also says that the average dpo for the first "false" negative test result is 10.3, so I feel slightly reassured (based on their own stats). I'm feeling some symptoms, and I'm pretty sure they're not just because AF could be on her way, as they seem to be lasting too long. The most prominent symptom being this crazy left-sided cramp, which I've had for a week, and is soooo familar from when we conceived Ila.

As of today, I am 11dpo, and I've taken a solemn vow that I won't waste any more tests by testing before Thursday. (Or maybe Wednesday, but no sooner!
[:p])

How are you all coping?
