Negative! :( I am on CD26, 11DPO, not feeling to preggo at all. I had nausua yesterday in the a.m. and I noticed an increase in CM yesterday and today but that's about all. My period is to come on Saturday.

Do you all think it is too soon to get a BFP? Do I still stand a chance. I am kind of discourage right now ::smileysad:mansad:

Thank you Rebekah!! I tell you this is so overwhelming at times. The weird thing is that I am not feeling preggo nor like AF is coming... I will test Saturday again. Also, which OPK's do u buy? I ran out of the Clear Blue Digitals and they r expensive ( I may not need them at all, lol God willing). Which pregnancy tests do u use? I heard some dollars store has some ? Do u use those?

I hear ya, Lola. It is overwhelming, that's why I decided to just BD every other day and that's it. I'm not OPKing, no BBTing, no checking my CM......nothing. Just good old-fashioned making love!!! hahaha

Pregnancy tests on the other hand, I use First Response Early Result. They are usually a little pricier, but are one of the more sensitive brands that picks up the hcg quicker than other tests. My local walmart had them on sale this week (It had 3 tests in the box, usually it's only 2, but it was a "bonus test" in it) and if you go onto the first response website, they have a $2 coupon you can print out [also, there is another $2 off coupon inside the box when you buy them to use for next time]. I just let my husband buy a box so I can use 2 coupons. haha.

I like this website: http://www.peeonastick.com/hpts.html

Yeah it can def be a little early to pick up a BFP. Keep your chin up until Sat :-)

I also use the Clearblue Digital OPK, as well as HPT.

Okay thank you Rebekah. I have used First Reponse Early Results too. I have an empty box I will look for the coupon. I am using clear blue digital, target had a box of 5 for 17.99. That's the best price for HPT and in a box of 5! :)

If AF finds me I will not but the OPKs, I am going to join you in the BDing every other day! :) I want to relax and make this experience fun...

Thank you Shigh! I will wait until Saturday in hopes, AF doesn't find me before then. If so, on to the next cycle.

Do you like the digital HPT? I used one today for the first time and was bumbed by the "not pregnant" reading versus the little lines HPTs?

I got a pack of 5 at target for 17.99 :)

You can either print one off on the website or the coupon is on the instruction pamphlet.

I got the First Response because I read a lot of mixed reviews on the digital ones about false results. I don't trust "computers"....especially inside a pregnancy test! haha. But each to their own. I might use one after I get a BFP on a regular one just to see the word "pregnant", but then again, I'd be scared it would say "Not Pregnant". Eek. :smileyindifferent:

Yeah I used one last month and obviously got the "not pregnant" :-(
Hopefully next month I'll get the "pregnant" though, lol. I just hate trying to decipher the little lines. When I was pg w/ DD I used a Walmart brand one that had plus/minus and the cross line was pretty faint even though AF was several days late at that point. I think I liked that better though than if it had been 2 vertical lines to compare.
I was pretty excited a few days ago when I used the digital OPK and got the smiley face! :-)

Hello...my first and second pregnancies, the HPTs worked only on the third week past O...this time around it worked the second week...I'd say, stay hopeful and positive and test and test again. Clear Blue and Fact Plus, though they state you can find out 4 days prior to AF, need 50 mg of pg hormone while Ultra and that blue and yellow box (they sell them in walmart here in quebec) costs three times less and only needs 25 mg of pg hormones...you can perhaps be pregnancy with low levels of pg hormone like I was my three times!! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!!!
Cheers,
Donna
