 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?

Oh, wow, Nina!! LOL I hope you're still eating small meals and NOT feeling dizzy! Vickie, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I hope you're having a wonderful day!! :) As for myself, I'm still feel crampy and that feeling comes and goes throughout the day/night. SB were achy during the night. Not so much now. The only thing to really report is when I wiped myself. I noticed a teeny tiny spot on the TP -- maybe dark brown in color? When I tried to move it to make sure it wasn't part of the TP, it moved and I wonder if it's part of my CM? That dark spot was the only "CM" if that's what it was on the TP. I'm not too sure how to feel about that considering that AF should be arriving in three days, Wednesday, the 12th. Hm. Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!! Buckets of baby dust to us all!

Hmm..about the yellow.  I had that last time.  Thinking good thoughts!

Ok- so smells have been overwhelming at times.  I put my spinach and riccotta pies ( did I mention before that I cook up a storm for others??  LOL)    in the oven and I start unloading the dishwasher thinking it just smells awful.  Not giving it much more thought than yuck.  Then I think and open the oven and what do I see on one of the metal sheets on the last pie I made?  a steak knife.  OMG!  When I cut the puff pastry into the squares I must have left the knife sitting on the parchment paper on the cookie sheet.  

What an idiot.  LOL

Nina, I'm with Krista and think that frequent small meals are a great idea!! NO one is out until AF shows; so don't consider yourself out until then!! Having said that, I'm still keeping my fingers crossed for all of you!! :) As for myself, I noticed yesterday and today that some foods I frequently eat don't taste the same. They were pretty bland. I thought that was a little weird. Last night, I had a little yellowish CM when I wiped, and I never had that before in all my years. I don't know what that means since I haven't had any more. Oh, well! :/ LOADS of baby dust to you all! Barbara

Oh and by the way - last time I tested positive on day 26 in the after noon and was negative in the morning on that same day...so it just encourages me to test often, LOL

Krista:  I'm not sure about testing...I am sure I will break out a stick tomorrow knowing me :)  ...and every day till I get AF.  Wednesday supposedly is the day AF should arrive according to a life's worth of AF, but I have not had a second one after MC to time them so not sure if I will have 24 like before.  Day 26 last time is when I finally got a positive...it took forever to show!!

Krista, Oh my goodness - that must have been so hard! Recently an office coworker asked me to pick up a baby gift from all of us at the office for a coworker who is having her 3rd ( no shower, obviously). Nope, cannot do it. I will contribute but cannot see all the baby stuff at the shoppe. Too soon. Happy for her, I will either contribute or if they don't end up doing anything, send her a gift card/flowwers etc. But I CANNOT go to a baby shoppe. HeLLO!!!! lol Number one priority is me....and keeping my sanity.

Nina, your symptoms sound great to meSmile  Frequent small meals are a great idea.  Hopefully they are helping with your dizziness.  I couldn't eat anything with my last pregnancy except for frozen fruit.  I'd fix dinner for everyone else and suck on frozen mango, blackberries and pineapple.  Smoothies were okay too.  I'm expecting you'll get your BFP very soon!  What day will you test again?

Vickie, I caved and tested this morning just to know for sure.  BFN again.  I'm sure I'm out now.

Yesterday was so hard for me.  Every year our family chooses an "angel" from the Giving Tree at church to buy presents for.  The kids are from families who are going through difficult financial times and won't get a Christmas without help from others.  This year, I chose a baby boy the same age as Will would have been.  I thought it would make me happy to buy for another baby, but I could hardly keep it together in the store as I looked at all the baby toys.  I had to keep telling myself to breathe, breathe, breathe...As I checked out, the cashier asked how my day was going and I almost burst into tears.  It was all I could do to look away and say, "good, thank you" as my eyes filled and my lips started to quiver.  I was so sad that I would not ever see our baby play with toys. That coupled with the knowledge that I wasn't pregnant and wouldn't be pregnant again was so depressing...Sorry for being a Debbie Downer (Wink) but I don't really have anyone else I can say this too.  

I hope everyone has a great weekend and FX to everyone!  Krista

I caved :(    I poas'ed - LOL

Negative, of course.  It IS too early though!  I just thought I'd see.    AF due on Wednesday.  Last time I didn;t get a positive until 2 days after AF was due and I think having a 24 day cycle is the main reason - just not enough time.  12 day LP,  Takes a bit longer maybe to show?

my symptoms are getting more intense - dizziness being the most troublesome.  I am forcing my self to eat meals even when I don;t want to.  I have this guilt that my first had something to do with my aversion to food...It stopped growing after 6 weeks :(   MD encouraged me to not lose all the weight I gained (the little I did) after mc to enter another pregnancy with a "running start".  I had real trouble getting weight on.  I am a picky eater and a light eater - I eat meals, but small ones.  I cook up a storm, but don;t really indulge much in it all...Fabulous for a figure, but not good for a pregnancy...and additionally, when I do indulge my metabolism kicks into overdrive.  Sounds like I'm whining, but maybe you all will understand that it is a problem with trying to have a healthy pregnancy.  

Everyone sounds like me - dying to POAS and get a positive.  I really don;t think any of us are out yet- Early Christmas present next week for some of us maybe?????

 Krista- I hope that temp is still up and you get a + test. I didn't bother to test this morning- BB's still burning, and I feel "blah". I feel bloated now though like AF will be here. I'm just going to wait it out. FX for you

Bonnie!  I was thinking of you tooSmile  I'm so glad to hear the homestudy went well.  What is your next step?  

Vickie, I'm so glad to hear you are still having symptoms!  Which ones are they again?  Are you going to test again?  I'm not sure what I'll do.  I guess I'll see what my temp is in the morning, and if it is still higher than my usual temps, I might test.  My symptoms are now so vague that I am probably imagining any I notice!  Ugh!  We'll see what the morning brings...FX to you!
