Tricia- I think I will go get a test or 2 or 3!  I'm just so scared of a BFN. Keeping my FX for you.  I'll be stalking Thursday morning!

Monica, sorry about the BFN- hopefully it was just too early to test. Some of those are symptoms of progesterone but it seems they would have started within a few days after taking  it- Keeping my FX that good things are happening in there! Keep us posted.

AFM, I'm 13 dpo today. I am driving myself crazy because I don't have the first test in this house with me. I have said I don't want to test but today has been hard to get through. I haven't had any symptoms and even thought I was out when my temp dropped at 8 or 9 dpo but it is back up (not real high but enough) and my BB's are killing me. I woke up at 3 a.m. and was sick to my stomach and had some weird cramping- I thought I had a stomach bug but I'm fine now just weird little cramps over on the right side. I would rather not have any symptoms to raise my hopes but now I am going to be absolutely crushed if my temp drops tomorrow.  I'm sitting here debating on going to the store for a test.... AARRGGGHHHH

Bonnie, YAY for starting the 2WW. Hopefully your symptoms are the real thing this time. As for omitting the temps- have you used the temp adjuster on FF? I don't usually recommend using it but it may help and I even use it every once in a while to set a temp at what I think it should have been. Maybe try that and make a note of the actual temp and time so you could go back if needed. I'll keep my FX for you!

Nessa, I'm so sorry. I was so hopeful for you. Hang in there and enjoy the time with your DS. Hopefully next cycle is the magical one!

oh and i'm on progesterone suppositories for the first time. are all those symptoms also side-effects of progesterone? i didn't have them at all last week. everything really started yesterday (11 dpiui).

i tested this am -- BFN. i think it must be too early. i'm 12 dpiui today, but my dr wants me to test on thursday which would be 15 dpiui. still having major back pain, had some strong smell stuff this morning, and not feeling puke-y but feeling like a have a small lump in my throat all morning also. so who knows what that all means.

thanks for all the positive thoughts everyone. i'm now going to wait to test until thursday (i hope i can wait that long) as i only have one FRER left a home. the drugstore is on my way home though....

Monica/Tricia - both sound very promising. GL to you both!

AFM - took my beta on Sunday am. Got the results in the afternoon while at the park with DS sitting on a bench next to five late twenty/early thirty y/o moms discussing when they would have their next child and who would get pregnant first. Made me want to scream that they were so fertile they could make games of it. So in that supportive environment, my result was - My progesterone level was only 3.5. I am, of course, completely confused based on all the "signs" I had, but not surprised. Still no but I guess that will change sooner or later. Anyway.... This cycle will run its course.

I think we are done with assisted pregnancies. DH has never been a fan and honestly it takes so much out of me and is such a huge time committment. And then there is the guilt that the process takes me away from spending quality time with DS. I live in NJ, my RE is in NYC (where I also work). Takes me 1.5 hours to get there in the a.m. for monitoring (which means I don't see DS b4 I leave) but it is the only convenient way for me to still get to work on time.

I have decided to work on improving my fertility to the best of my ability (natural fertility cleanse, maca root and continued supplements, not sure about accupuncture yet) and then just let nature take its course. If it is meant to happen....God willing it will.
