I'm now 12 dpo and I should be spotting for sure by now (I ALWAYS spot before AF, usually 2-4 days before, unless pg), even on progesterone, which I've been on since 3 dpo (I was on this protocol a couple cycles last year and I

Well, just outta curiosity, I tested again this afternoon with a couple Wondfos again....and stark white neg. I'm thinking that one from this morning was an evap. Oh well. Still no spot, but I'm thinking the progesterone is working just a bit too well and holding back any kind of bleeding. I've been off of it now all day, so we'll see when the witch shows. Gosh....it would have been better if I'd never seen any line at all to begin with. I'm beginning to feel like I don't want to keep going through this. I can see, just from today, how obsessive I got. It's just getting so old. Sixteen freaking months of this up and down roller coaster. Ughhhhh.....

Thanks, Vickie. I still see a line....but it's so very faint and can't tell if there's any color in it or not. So, at this point, rather than saying a BFN, I'm gonna say....ambiguous. I believe I'm 13 dpo, but I didn't use an OPK, just going off temps and mucous signs. I had a temp rise on cd-14 and then another rise on cd-15, so kinda hard to tell. I might only be 12 dpo, with a late implant. Still makes me nervous though....hoping it's not a chem pg. :( I do seem to be getting some symptoms which seemed to manifest yesterday.....so we'll see.

I'm glad your dh is back in the "game." Crossing my fingers and praying for you, too.

Sounds like there is a little bit of hope left though with the shadow of a shadow. Maybe late implantation? Just a thought- so hoping you get a very dark line this evening.

I'm sorry. {{{HUGS}}} I know the feeling well. If others have never lost a LO before, or if they had a m/c and it didn't really affect them much, then they can't really understand the turmoil we go through.

This just sucks....no other way around it. :(

Well....I think I need to call it a BFN. I thought I saw a shadow of a shadow of a line after a couple minutes, but it's really hard to see (it's a Wondfo...and they work pretty well for me). I might be imagining it. It was FMU, but it was also not that concentrated (I had just peed about 4 hours prior) and it had a lot of progesterone coating the stick (it was from the suppository last night). But, nonetheless, at 13 dpo...it should have been very apparent. I think I'm just gonna get off the progesterone and let spot or AF come now. I might test again later today or tomorrow if still no spot or AF. Oh well, it was a nice thought, even if I was scared.

Nah, I'm waiting till tomorrow, for sure. I HAVE been know to not spot until cd-26 (which will be tomorrow), so we'll see.

Hope you're doing alright. {{{HUGS}}}

I know what you mean, Vickie, but honestly, if you're ready, emotionally, I think I'd go for it, especially since your m/c was pretty early and it happened naturally. I only waited cause I was 9 weeks along the last time and had a D & C. I wanted to make sure my lining was built up adequately again.

Whatever you decide....we'll be here for you.

I really don't know what to think about my situation....could just be my body playing tricks on me. Ughhhhh.....I have such mixed feelings about this. I soooooo don't think I can handle another loss. But, I'm not quite going there yet..............

Good luck and {{{{{HUGS}}}}}
