The 2ww can be a very stressful time for some. It can feel like the longest 2 weeks of the cycle. How do you get through them? Do you find yourself obsessing about temps, or symptoms or do you have the patience to just wait for AF or a + test? Share your tips for getting through this wait.

I hate to agree with FF, it could be your temps were off and it was confused... I didn't O the first month I temped either, in fact, it was a short cycle by at least a week... If FF is right I hope that you have a short cycle this month so that the waiting will be over faster. Luckily, the very next month, I did O and all seemed right with the world again... well as right as it can be without a BFP. Hang in there, I know it is frustrating. It also may be that you have not O'd yet. Is DH back yet? Maybe someone is looking after you and offering you a second chance. :) A girl can dream right? I hope your efforts pay off quickly AnneMarie!!!

Adding myself to the 2WW, not sure if I did before, my computer is playing tricks on me. Anyway, I think I am loading my chart. I've got a HUGE dip today. I'm cramping today. I remain hopeful :-0

I took a couple of Aleve last night because of a headache, I'm wondering if that affected my temps... such a HUGE drop :-(

That was a big drop, WOW! I'm not sure what to make of it but sometimes our bodies do whacky things. I would like to see what tomorrow brings for your temperature. How long are your cycles usually, are they around 24 days as a general rule?I'm curious for purposes of figuring out if your drop could be the drop that occurs the day before or of your AF... hate to say that but I also have a temp drop that day. If it's too early for AF then I'm at a loss but hopefull. It could mean an implantation dip or it could just be due to taking meds last night. FX'd that it was just a fluke drop and you get a BFP!!! :)

hmmm I started to cramp, like AF style, so I checked... well it looks like sure enough I am spotting. Though the blood looks strange... probably just my mind playing tricks on me but it is orangey red instead of purplish read like usualy (sorry tmi). Also, she isn't due for at least 4 more days... probably not enough of a difference for this to be implant bleeding. Anyways implant bleeding is supposed to be brownish not orangish. Of course, I am elated if that is what it is. IF it's AF I guess that is good for two reasons 1) AF was supposed to come possibly on our anniversary (GOING TO NYC for my 1st time over our anniversary whoo hoo), so now it will be over by then and 2) it shifts my fertile patches so that I have a fertile patch over a week my DH took off again, his birthday week the end of May!!! I'll keep you posted whether it's the witch or a dip... :)
