That's what I'm hoping it is but I expected my temp to rebound and be higher this morning. I have never had an implantation dip before so I'm not sure.

According to FF: "There are some signs of implantation or successful conception that

You just made my day!:smileyvery-happy: Thank you for keeping the faith when mine has been dwindling. I am just scared to get too hopeful because I have been let down so many times. I would like to be in a coma for a couple months and wake up with a baby bump!

Awww, you're welcome! I know it's harder to get your hopes up and then have them dashed repeatedly. But the way I look at it, sometimes it takes a whole lotta "no's" to get a "yes." I just hope that this will be your "yes."

I have a CL!!!! YAY!!! so now the true 2WW begins, luckily 3 of the days were used up waiting to see if I truly O'd, so now I suppose it is only the 11DW :)

I don't think I have any symptoms. I had a headache yesterday that I attributed to cutting out my evening diet coke... and it went away after I had a few sips of hubby's DC. Seriously, the caffeine addiction I have is no joke. I am down to one in the morning though if I can avoid taking sips of his. Tapering off my use here so it won't be so hard to quit altogether. It is hard enough watching hubby drink alcohol on Friday date nights while I long for it. This is all worth it though 100%.

I am glad to see my temp inching up. I'm 8 dpo today and still only have tingling BB"s. I don't really have the urge to test that I had the other day. I am feeling a lot calmer about testing-although that could change in a matter of minutes. I am going to wait until Friday as I have so much to do before then.

What a beautiful chart you have! I can't wait to watch the days of your 2ww ( I mean, 11 DW) go by. Gonna keep my fingers crossed the whole time for you!

4dpo

Nothing of substance to report. I felt a little nauseus yesterday when I was jogging but it only lasted a few minutes. I felt very tired last night, like you would have thought it was Thursday night rather than Tuesday night tired. I guess I wouldn't consider that all that odd though. I don't want to do too much reaching here. I would rather either have obvious signs or simply a BFP on 12dpo. My birthday is on 11dpo (Nov 30th) I can imagine the pull that day to want to test. I don't have any cheapie tests though. Also, FF said to wait until 18dpo since my cycles were so irregular (damn that 20 day cycle). 18 dpo would put me at cd31. I might wait until 13dpo that would be the friday after my bday and likely a celebration night. If I'm not pg I sure could probably use a drink by then... or do you ladies think if I get a BFN on 13 I should retest again on cd31 (or day after AF date missed).

Since I have never been pg or a mom, I have never had to give up anything... I guess I have to learn now that with motherhood, baby always comes first and since I'm TTC baby's needs are more important than my own. I should start living for my baby now. I mean not that I am bad because I have given up most of my caffeine (though from my research I had seen mostly said a little caffeine was fine) and drinking alcohol once I know I have O'd. I also eat well, lots of fruits and veggies, am drinking reduced calorie grapefruit juice (which is replacing my diet coke and quite tasty I might add) drinking tons of water (for me also very hard to do), exercising 3-5 days a week but not too strenuous - no more strenuous than prior exercise, I mean I am not pushing it like I used to. I take a half a prenatal vitamin everyday I remember which is most days (they make me nauseus and or constipated so I can't take the whole thing for now). I guess I need reassurance that I am doing the right thing here. The caffeine thing really gets me... It's a friend of mine :( ACT LIKE A MOMMY! Suck it up. That's the end of my rant for today...

Hugs girls,

Have a happy thanksgiving and drive safe if you are travelling. I hope we all get that BFP this month!!!

Still here...and that is probably a good thing.

7dpo

had a slight dip in temps on 5dpo, temps seem to be soaring now. I guess that is good as long as they stay high but not crazy, I wish the temp pattern seemed a bit less erratic.

Symptoms: well last night I had water at a restaurant I had been to before.They serve them in plastic cups, I could actually taste a very strong plastic taste in the first water. The second water I didn't taste it though. hmmmm food tasted better... but it could just be that I missed our old hangout in Kansas City. Otherwise, some slight breast tenderness yesterday, possibly feeling fuller today. So far nothing earth shattering I can definately cling to. The ability to taste the plastic is the only odd thing...

Caffeine update: bought decaf folgers coffee and some caffeine free diet coke. I was amazed how easy the caffeine thing was once I fully committed to it and bought some fairly equal tasting equivalents. YAY me! Finally acting more mommy like, so proud of me. I kind of hope others are too. This isn't to say that I have completely removed caffeine the last couple of days but I have only had a couple over the last few days. That is instead of a couple everyday like before. I feel like once I am back at home I think I can go completely caffeine free.

Anyway, hope you all are doing great. Praying for a bunch of BFP reports in the coming month! I'm so glad I have you guys :) I am thankful for you all.
