 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?

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

 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!

You know you are an addict when you are pushing the first response boxes to the side on the shelf looking for the 2 pack with a 3rd free.  yeah, you girls know which box I mean....LOL  

I mean why would I buy the three pack when there is usually a two pack with one free?  I mean, heLLOO!!!  LOL

Vickie, have you mentioned anything to your husband about your hopes for this cycle? Mine keeps asking if I think I'm pregnant, but in the past I have always done something fun to tell him about the pregnancies, so I'm trying to be evasive with my answers. "It's too early to tell....I'm not really sure....probably not...." All the while, hoping against hope that a little present is taking root! Since this is our last cycle TTC, I'd love to surprise him again:) Nina, I'm with you on stocking up on HPTs. I have a 3 pack of First Response waiting to be used:) Happy, busy, fast moving days to all of us:) Krista

 Krista- I was pretty certain it was for me! I understand working off of little to no sleep. I haven't even thought about my face breaking out but it did about 3 days ago. I usually have my worst flare or breakout during AF- hmmm...I am trying to stay busy but it is really hard to do. I guess you could call me a recovering POAS addict. I used to buy 50 or more IC's and would test cycles out with them and OPK's. I called it all my little science experiment! I now only have Dollar Tree tests in the house and I tell myself they aren't as sensitive so I have to wait. Plus, I keep 2 cases of water here with me!

Nina- you made me literally LOL when I read that! 12/17 does seem really far away but IF this Friday will ever get here, the next will be here before you know it. I know the sellers on ebay miss my business- I was a steady customer to a few of them. I'd hate to really add up all the money I spent during these last years TTC  When I do get obessed, I run out to the Dollar Tree and buy a box of their cheap tests- yes, a whole box- 12 at the time!

12/17!  Oh good god so far away!!!!  LOL

I dont know how u are not testing!  I POAS about three times every cycle.  I'm adddicted to it!  I am stocked with three sticks - how long will it take for me to POAS?  First response is super excited that I will be back to buying them again.  LOL

Last time, I didnt get a positive until the day after my period was to show.  so day 25 on a day 24 cycle.  I actually had a negative on the morning of day 25 (and days leading up to it!)  and then after work at 5:00 I got a faint positive.  I actually just knew so I tested 6 times leading up to that positive.  

BTW, All the same feelings and symptoms (and similar vivid dreams) are showing right now.  I keep rejecting the idea.  and then I have a dream that was almost exactly the same as last time.

I am keeping my fingers crosse\d for you Vicky!!!!

Yes, Vickie, that post was meant for you! I'm bleary eyed with lack of sleep and not thinking straight. Sorry! You are too funny about drinking water to dilute:) I agree that time seems to pass so slowly in the final days of the waiting to test! I usually try to plan lots of errands and things to "check off" my list to keep the day flying by. I am getting excited for Friday too. Every morning I wake up and anxiously look at the thermometer to see if the temps are rising. I have a backache this morning, not sure if that is a bad sign though. On the flip side, my face started breaking out several days ago and typically, I don't break out until right before AF shows. Hoping that is a good one! Yours sound more promising than mine, I'd take nausea and sore BB anyday:) Hope you have lots to keep you busy today! Krista

Nina, I am working off of less than 5 hours of sleep and I had just finished posting to you, when I tried to post this message to Vickie. I'm sorry! I've heard women are often more fertile right after a m/c, so you certainly could be pregnant this month! I'm testing this theory too, as I was (briefly) pregnant last month. As for testing, I wait until at least 12 dpo to test and I've always gotten a positive at that time if I was pregnant. Sending lots of fx your way! Krista

 Nina, with a normal 14 day LP, Af would be late if she didn't show by 12/17.  And I'm sending tons of + thoughts that she doesn't show!

  "Oh Nina! I am so excited for you to test on Friday! (Are you going to hold off until then?) Here's to a day full of feeling pregnant! Krista"
 
Is this for me?  If so, it's so hard to wait! I have talked myself off the ledge for this morning. I drank 2 bottles of water within 15 minutes just to dilute everything. How are you holding up? Can you wait? How do you talk yourself out of testing? Time is going by so slow.
