Amy I agree if there is another line your prolly preggers!! :-) YAY!

E- My hubby is a POAS pusher too. He wants me to test every day. But thats freakin expensive and there is no way I am doing that. Plus this whole seeing negatives thing is soooo depressing and frustrating!

AFM- If my temp takes a dive tomorrow I am sure I am out! I am soooooo soooo over waiting! This didnt happen while TTC DD so this is a whole new ball park. And I am not so upset about not being preggo. I am just upset that my body wont give me my period so I can move onto my next cycle and get to work on TTC. I wanted a May or June due date from the start so thats not what bugs me. This whole living in limbo is bugging me. Sorry for ranting so much. This is all so new for me.

Has anyone gotten a bunch of Negative tsts and then gotten a positive at a 15 or 16 or 17 DPO?! It seems like if I O'd when I did wouldnt I have a BFP by now? I dunno I am super confused!??!

I am out ladies! Praise the lord! I could t have bee happier to see pink tinged CM just now. :smileyhappy: now I need to see if this picks up to a light flow or to just mark it as spotting. As of right now it was literally a light pink streak when I wiped several times. And when I checke my cm with my finger. So I guess spotting?

My grandpa quit smoking after smoking his whole life (he was 53 when he quit). And it has been over 5 years now since he quit! He used lolipops at the begining to help when he needed to keep his mouth and hands busy. It really worked for him. He also went to the doctors and got put on welbutrin (sp?) apparently it helps with the cravings part (its normally an antidepressant). He was only on that temporarily.

My grandma (married to him) quit when I was 13. and she replaced it with menthol cough drops and mint gum. She still uses that as her replacement. But both have been not smoking for a long time!!

So good luck! You can totally do it!!

Mandy, you know you can order pregnancy tests online for as little as 25 cents a piece? they are pretty simple but then if you want to POAS all the time its a lot cheaper then $5 a pop.

Jan - Good luck You Can Do It!!! Both of my parents started smoking when they were teenagers and both quit when I was in my early 20s. My dad just quit cold turkey and my mom went w/ the lollipop route. She really needed something "in hand" to break that habit - holding something while driving, on the phone, etc.

E - Enjoy your river rafting trip.

Amy - FX crossed this is it for you!!!

Mandy - I totally second the internet cheapies. (Might be a good idea of E as well, especially is DH is a POAS pusher), you can easily get them on Amazon, just stay away from blue dye tests.

In regards to BFN/BFP and days PO, we were talking about this on other boards and I must say everyone and every pregnancy is different. Some women can get BFN 14dpo, and then a positive 16dpo. Some women seem to only get positives from blood work. Some women get positives as early as 9dpo. Also keep in mind, unless you are using a fertility monitor, FF is just giving you it's best "target" date for O.

AFM - based on something DH said last night I think I might try to talk him into NPP sooner rather than later. But I am still on the fence about that one.

So temp dive this AM. I still haven't seen AFs arrival... I am sure anytime now. Last night all I saw was the pink tinged CM. and then this AM all I saw was a teeny tiny bit of brown on my pad. An nothing when I wiped. STRANGE! I marked yesterday as a light flow day and thus CD 1. But maybe I should change today to CD 1... Or wait for my flow to pick up before marking anything as CD 1. Lol. :smileyhappy:

I would mark yesterday as spotting and today as spotting, unless AF picks up later today.

Mandy- Could it be implantation bleeding? How much of a dive did you temp take? I don't have the link to your chart with me? Just a thought. Also could it be all messed up coming off birth control. I can't remember is this your first or second cycle.
