I JUST FOUND OUT I'M....

CRAZY!!!! Haha, I knew that would get some of you! Okay, I am sorry for being mean but I seriously must be crazy. Okay, First of all I don't know about my temps, I'll get to that later. I wake up, go pee, and still spotting but not much. I was expecting AF in full force by now! This is CD 31 and 16 dpo! Why the hell did I not go ahead and test?!

I think b/c of the fact I am still spotting, I don't know what my temp should be and still having cramping on and off. Well, here is the deal with my temp. I woke up at like 4:15 or so and took it then b/c I just happened to wake up and since I normally temp between 5:30 and 6, I knew I wouldn't get 3 hrs consecutive sleep. The thing is I was awake at about 2:30 or 2:45 too so even when I temped at 4:15, I hadn't had 3 consecutive hrs of sleep. Well, my temp was 96.9 (1 point below coverline,...boo hoo) What do I do, what is my temp, do I count it? I am so confused! AF feels like she is coming at times, and at other times not but my God I think she should have been here by now! Is there any way maybe I "O"ed later than what my chart says?! FEI(for everyone's info) I brought my last ClearBlue Easy HPT with me to work, it's in my purse (teeheehee)!

The only thing I am concerned is: if I am PG, is it ectopic, is it healthy, am I at risk for miscarriage. I am so scared and paranoid right now! AAAAGGGGHHHH!!!!

((Sheree)) I'm sorry this is being so weird for you! I think you should put that test to good use! But I'm paranoid so I wouldn't use it til the morning. However, since you are 16dpo, you could hold it for a couple hours and then test.

Aren't I awful? No help and encouraging you to test...

Aw Sheree. . . This is a tough one. Ok, so if you add .1 for every 1/2 hr. that puts you at 97.2, which is a drop of .3 but still above cover by .2. However, if you calculate in the fact that you didn't have 3 hrs. consecutive sleep at that point either your temp could still be higher maybe. In addition, when you went back to sleep did you really sleep well or toss and turn the last couple of hrs. That too will affect your temp. Oh so tricky!

On the bright side, looking at your other charts it seems that once you take the large dip your next dip is below cover. So, considering that you were up early and didn't have 3 hrs. consec. sleep, your temp may very well still be above cover. I know, I'm probably all that more confusing.

Unfortunately it's hard to figure at that point what is going on. I think you should try to save your test and wait and see what the morning brings temp wise. However, on the flip side, I would want to know and would hold my pee for 3 hrs. and test now. Ok, so that isn't much help either.

Anyhow, whatever you do, I wish you all the best and hope you see that BFP really soon. Take care.

Urgh! You ARE mean! Sheree!! I've never clicked on a post so fast in my life!LOL! But, you did make me laugh.

I suppose you could have "o"d a day or 2 later than what is indicated. You did get that + opk on the day it indicated "O" so it may have actually happened the next day, but still...how long is your lp normally? I don't blame you for getting frusterated!

Hopefully you'll know the answer soon. I bet that hpt is burning a hole in your pocket!

Well, I thought too that I would wait and see what my temp is tomorrow. Hopefully I can sleep well and temp at my normal time! Then I would have a better idea. I think I am still above cover though b/c according to my past charts, when I go below cover is when AF SHOWS in full force. I will say that this morning the spotting was definitely less than yesterday and the cramping is not as bad anymore. I just started drinking a cup of coffee in the morning again this past week, do you think that has something to do with it. Could that be causing the cramping and all if I am pg? Right now I am thinking, if I am not spotting after lunchtime (it is 10:10AM here now) then I might test. I even brought one of Kaylyn's disposable cups and put in my purse too. LOL! Well, I guess we'll just see. It is so weird. I guess if she comes I will post on the Sisters Of Irregularity board (maybe) I have no idea but it is so aggravating.

OT: my cat had her kittens yesterday (I will post about it later though!)

I AM sorry Tara! You have been here and supported me a lot and I shouldn't have done that to you gals! You are all so wonderful it just seems that on this new board format, if you don't make an interesting post, you don't get as many responses! That's why I did it!

It is frustrating and I bet you are right about the HPT...it IS burning a hole in my purse! I can hear it calling out my name! "SHEEERRREEEEE....come take me please!!!!" Well, Like I told Melissa (Tutter13) I will see what my spotting looks like after lunch. It is now about 10:30 AM CST (in TX) so I will see what happens after lunch. I just finished my coffee so by then I will have to go to the RR anyway. I will try and hold it as long as I can. BTW: my LP is usually only 12-13 days long, but remember I tested on CD 13 and got a BFN! Like I said, I am really scared that IF I am pg that it is not okay. Ectopic, chance of mc etc. I wonder if starting to drink coffee this week has caused some sort of effect? When I used to drink coffee though before it never had an effect that I know of. I don't drink it on the weekends though so I guess we'll just see. I can't beleive I have been waiting this long and still don't know anything! It is scary and frustrating.

Sheree--promising that the next time you see a post like that from me it WILL say a BFP!!!!!

LOL! (((HUGS))) Sheree! You silly girl! The best thing to do for the most concentrated urine is to go pee out your coffee, THEN hold it for as long as you can without drinking anything else. (if you can!)

I'm sure the coffee would have little effect on the health of an early pg....please don't worry.

I don't think the coffee is having any effect. I drank a cup a day in the AM (work days) until it made me sick. Remember, early pg. cramping can feel just like AF cramping. With both of mine I thought for sure AF was coming from the cramps. Hang in there. You know, it is possible that you didn't sleep well in anticipation of temping and testing today. Just another thought. My best to you, and I hope all goes well.

Oh, congrats on the kitties.

It's a good thing I was in outline view... he-he. It's not April 1st today, Sheree!

I am sorry AF is being such a cruel trickster. Sheesh, what's up with these long LPs? You could test, you know... That way you will know for sure. Although, I am not sure whether that will reassure you or not. Ectopic pg was also on my mind as AF keeps away, but I am getting BFNs, but I have a history of ep. With my ep I got a faint +ve 4 days after AF was due. It was my first pg, so I did not know to be concerned until I started severe cramping and spotting week later. I am not telling you this to scare you - eps are very rare (1-2%), so chances are high you do not have one.

Looks like I am out for this cycle, but going for the longest LP on my record. My temps crashed today. Still above CL, but should go down tomorrow, I hope, I don't want a repeat ep, as I was starting to fear.
