Aw Shawn I'm sorry. It's really hard to stay positive. Especially when I've seen so many "early" positive tests all over the internet.

It was another BFN for me this AM too! My first morning test with FMU actually. I was so hopeful (again) because my temp surprisingly went UP this morning! Last night before bed I looked at my old charts and predicted today at 12DPO my temp would be 97.6 or lower, instead it was 97.9! Still stark white BFN though. :( Saaaaad.

We had so much sex during my fertile time this cycle! We're going to be so frustrated and confused if it doesn't "work"

E & Shawn - hugs on the BFNs. I'm with ya (every month!) but the good news is you have clear shifts and accurate BDing - it WILL happen!!

E - FWIW, with both of my PGs I didn't get a BFP until the day AF was due.

Thanks Jules! :)

Alison- I know you're right - clear shift and good timing and very good things to have a handle on. Now it's just a game of chance! Working on my patience here ;)

Kate - thanks, that's reassuring. When I look online all I see are ridiculous things like 7/8/9/10 DPO positive tests. That makes me feel like if I have nothing at 12DPO there's no chance I could be pregnant. But I know rationally that all women are different and I might not get an accurate positive test until much later like 15/16/17 DPO.

Shawn and E--


Your charts look so good! I have my fingers crossed tightly for you both!

AFM--I'm in the 2ww. Timing wasn't fantastic, but we have a shot. We'll see what happens.

Thanks Liz, but I'm 99% sure I'm out. Temp went down a little bit again this morning, another BFN and cramps are starting to get stronger. Took my last prometrium last night so I expect AF this weekend.

Good luck to the rest of you ladies!! I hope to see some BFPs!

lol Jules, thanks for the excitement. You should totally chart - it will drive you INSANE. DH just called my office to ask if I think I'm pregnant .... we both can't stop thinking about it. I'm really trying to manage my hopes, because it will be so tough if AF shows. I had two cycles, one with a 15 day LP and one with a 12. So I don't know which is "correct" - if it's a 12 day LP, then I'm a day late (yay!), if it's 15 days ... then my chart might just be teasing me and AF could show up soon (right on time).

Liz - good luck with your TWW! :)

Shawn, sorry you're feeling 99% out. :( Anything you'll try differently next cycle? It helps me work through the negative feelings if I start planning for the next round ...
