 Share those symptoms or the lack of during your 2ww. Do you test? When do you start testing? What is your secret to waiting for AF without testing?

 Krista,  hubby doesn't ask, and remember the cramping a few days ago- when he said it's just gas! ? If he has any hopes or ideas it could be a pregnancy, he hasn't said a word. I honestly think he would faint if I said I was pregnant again. He would be that shocked that it actually happened.

Nina- LOL I know just what you mean! Do they think we are crazy enough to pay for 3 when there's usually a free one?!

Vickie   P.S.  Thank you both for being here today- it has really helped the time go by and I love chatting with you! Krista- I'm drinking my 5th bottle of water just to drown those POAS thoughts!

OMG, Vickie - I really read that thinking...I thought Nuttinfancy was Vickie - who is Vickie then?  ROTFL!

I thought you had a PS to Vickie....I am a Idiot and just had to share my smack the forehead moment when I reread the end of that comment.  Ever have one of THOSE days?  When all day long you are making stupid mistakes...and laughing at yourself so much you decide to share your idiot like behavior with others?  

Yup, that's today in a nutshell.  It is a good think I am off from work today.  God only knows what I would have been like.  HAHAHA.

I love your comments and am happy to share your trying not to POAS day.  But, if I was with you I would be unwrapping it and handing it to you - we know you have more---I have a closet :)  LOL

BTW- I think hubbys don't ask because they are afraid of upsetting us.  It's THEIR version of us not wanting to make them think all we want is BD for a baby, not just for them.  Think about it.  If they got our hopes up constantly it would be so disappointing- and they would feel responsible.  Men don't like that - they want everything to be okay.     They are not going to purposely rock the boat.   When wives are happy, husdbands are happy.  It is their creed.  LOL

Don't think they don;t consider the possibilities or are not interested...or don;t care.  They just don't want to upset us.  And............they need to know we want them for just the act sometimes, not just BD.  

(so....one can always fib and say we are not ov'ing....we just want fun...it's a win/win as long as both parties are TTC, ya know what I mean)

 OMG! I just saw where it posted my PS. I had typed it all and looked over most of it but hubby drove up so I thought I may need to look busy ( so I jumped up to fold laundry) and  I just closed the page. I thought I typed it below my name LOL I would have done the same as you and could just hear my daughters- they are 15 and call those (and it's a really weird sound) DUUUEEERRR! moments! I have quiet a few of those and that's when they invented the word. We get a kick out of saying it to each other!

It wouldn't be too hard to persuade me to POAS- that's the reason for all the water for today and tomorrow. I just want as much time as possible so that IF I get a line, I can see it without standing on my head with my arm over my shoulder and one eye closed! I hate squinters!

I do agree that the hubbies have more interest than they show but are afraid of bringing up a subject that is sensitive to us.  With my long cycles lately though, I think hubby really has no idea that we have a chance to be pregnant as I never told when O was. I think I'll just keep that to myself until after testing. Does your hubby know that you O'd?

At the time, I really didnt think I was going to.  I mean seriously, 4 weeks after mc I am at zero and get a period?  Come on!  He was at the md office when they were saying it could be up to 3 months and I was starting at something like 18,000 HCG.  Never thought it would happen.  So..when we had fun neither one of us thought it was with purpose - all wekend of fun.  And then on Sunday evening while movie watching I got that familiar feeling, pinchy stabby pains with pressure (every o, this is my sign) and realized I had not thought anything of the CM I had previously been expiriencing for a couple of days...so much of that kind of stuff happens for ever with a mc....maybe I was just ignoring the signs. So...he knows now and so do I.  But, I told him its so not gonna happen.  It's my reality check.  But, I'm kinda nervous it just may have.  I had that omg, what smells moment today and another light bulb went off.  Fluttery feelings.  Prickly feelings.  pressure (this one scares me, cause that's how my mc started.  it just brings back the memory of how it felt at first..so I need to relax...LOL)  I also got weepy at a song...only time that ever happened was last time.  Starnge...BUT all these symptoms could be a uterus that is post mc and first o and  healing, right?  Things could just be like working for the first time again.  Who knows?    Whoever or whatever you belive in made women wait too long to find out.  What kind of joke was that\?   Lets make her wait an eternity...and call her a woman.  LOL

You girls are so hilarious, I actually laughed out loud and my husband asked what I was doing...um...paying bills, er...reading e-mails. Vickie, I laughed when you mentioned your husband driving up and you jumping up to look busy by folding laundry, I do the same thing! I feel really guilty if I'm on the computer when he's home....hard position because I often only have time at night after the homework is done and kids are in bed. I usually try to get one while I'm washing up for bed. "What's taking you so long in there?" "Um....taking out my contacts, flossing my teeth, etc." Ha, ha! Nina, yes, I actually have the 3 pack in my cabinet, plus another one because the first pack had a BOGO offer on it! LOL! And yes, I did move the front boxes to find the 3 packs in the back! LOL! An aside question...how do you girls get your comments to post with spaces between comments for different people? I type it that way, but when it posts, everything is jumbled together. Well, I've been "washing up" for too long and hubby is getting irratated. Better run! Can't wait to see everyone's temps in the morning;) Oh...my new symptom today is gagging when I brush my teeth. Anyone else? Krista

Nina- I lost my first at 12 weeks and had a normal period and cycle within 5 weeks. I couldn't believe it. My doctor told me it could take up to 3 months before my numbers went to zero but he was wrong.. I hope you did catch that golden egg and that everything will be fine. It isn't fair to have to wait so long to find out. I would be content with turning green the next day ( and for the whole 9 months) if that's how you knew you had got it right!

Krista-we are going to get you in trouble with hubby!  I can't let mine know that I'm not working as hard as he does. I will come to IV to start the roll call and 2ww threads after dinner with him here, but I don't do a lot of reading because I don't want him over my shoulder asking questions. He would just be grossed out if I told him that we have been discussing CM and periods. He gets all weirded out when my girls tell me that AF showed while they were in class.  When I'm done typing to one of you,, I just hit enter then it skips 2 lines and it always works except for my PS yesterday. Which gave us a good laugh and brightened my day with Nina's post.

Ava- so glad you are here cheering for those BFP's. I can't wait until you are in here sharing symptoms. I will be chart stalking every day!

I'm getting nervous about tomorrow. I am already telling myself that my temp could drop, I have been poking my BB's most of the day to make sure they still hurt- and they do because of all the pokes they have gotten! I will not test if my temp drops- I am certain with a drop that there will be no need to test.    Hoping, praying and waiting...

OMG, I am soooo sick!   Gagging, freezing, smelling, dizzy, nausea, and yawning- so tired.  

This is either the period from hell or I'm positive.  This is all the symptoms I had before except extremely more nauseaus.  I never was really sick until the mc started.  Now, I feel like I need a bag.  

And I'm getting fluttery feelings in my belly....caught me by surprise...So scared to get myself worked up.  It's just seems so soon after ov.  

UGH!!!!!  LOL
