Let's get those September BFPs!
Some days I am my own worst enemy.
Thanks to Katie, Tara, and Joelle for my wonderful siggies!
I have some PG-test questions for you ladies!
1. When do you normally test? Do you do it at 10DPO (when many tests say is kind of the earliest to do it), or do you wait until AF is late?
2. I know you're supposed to test with the first urination of the day. I tend to have to go to the bathroom at some point during the night too - should I do it then, or do it the first time I go after I get up for good in the morning?
3. The tests I have say to put it in the mid-stream for 10 seconds. I don't know about you, but I don't think my "stream" lasts that long, especially if I have to cut out the first and last bits. Does it really matter that much?
Ok, freak out over :)
As for pregnancy test questions:
1) As I demonstrated this morning, I'm willing to test at DPO 9 :)
DEE - Hope you had fun at the rodeo!! Yeehaw! :)
JEN - Glad you got to see those swimmers and that has eased your mind. I can't believe you went out to get a better microscope, LOL!
MARY - I can see how you would go bonkers over chart. That is really confusing. :o/ My instinct is that you haven't O'd yet. What's your gut telling you?
ALYSSA - to answer your questions... 1) this time around I think I'm going to test at 13dpo. I only have one test left and am not going to buy more IC's unless this cycle is a bust. :)2) I would use FMU instead of the middle of the night stuff3) I PIAC usually. Just seems easier to me.
*Hi everyone else!*
AFM - Just over here enjoying the fact that it's a 3 day weekend. My allergy thingee sprang up again yesterday (I'd gone two days without taking any allergy medicine and had no problems, but then yesterday POW! Back with a vengeance!) This morning I was leaning my wrist against the laptop and now my wrist is all itchy and red. I can see how this is going to be a highly annoying thing if it's a lifelong issue to manage. I need to start doing serious meditation so I can train myself not to scratch an itch! (sooooo hard!! LOL)
Good luck Erin with the move!!! Hope it goes smooth for ya!
Jenni, your temps look great!! Hope you get your BFP! Enjoy your trip
Jen, good luck! I`m not sure about the early symptoms either. Right now I have loads of CM but not putting much stock in it really. Every other gal that is a PG grad had symptoms that ran the gamut so its hard to know what is normal, ya know? Yay for finding swimmers!
Andi, hope you had a good time at the birthday party! Sorry your allergies are giving you trouble.
Dee, enjoy the rest of your vacation!
Alyssa, to answer your tests questions--
I dont plan to test until AF doesnt show up and hope to hold out 3-5 days after she is supposed to be here, just in case.
I usually use FMU and pee in a cup. I`m not good at getting my urine to hit the stick.
AFM, DH and I went to the cottage this weekend to help close it up for the summer. His grand maman has been REALLY talking about how old she is and how she might not be around which seems so bizarre to me but I guess she is just being reflective, (she is 78 years old and in good health) so she surprised us this weekend with $5000!!! Holy crap....she is apparently giving $5000 to each of the grandchildren (7 boys) to go towards a car or house. So naturally DH and I intend to buy furniture and I hope to buy a china cabinet which is something we`ll have forever and it`ll be a reminder of her. She also gave my DH his grand papere`s coin collection as well. Anyway it was a fun weekend, back at it tomorrow.
On the TTC front, just waiting now. I have loads of CM and I feel like I could smell the lake really strong this weekend....more so than normal (it wasn`t windy either, I just really noticed how much it smelled) but thats really it. I`m on CD 22 about 7DPO and expect AF next Sunday or Monday. We have a wedding this coming weekend and I don`t plan to drink at all. I`ve basically given up alcohol gradually for the last few weeks so it doesn`t seem like such a huge deal to everybody else if I dont drink. Also, the neighbor at the camp today asked why we or my BIL and SIL arent making babies yet?? Oh my gawd I hate that question!!! None of yo damn business lady!! Any way, I rolled my eyes and said not for a looooooong time...BIL just laughed it off, he`s on strike right now, AS IF he or SIL can think about a baby as he could be out of work for a long time. Plus they`ve been married 4 months...nothing like pressure ya know?? And all it does is get MIL riled up too with comments here and there....ugh...no tact, I swear some people.
Thanks Katie for my siggy!
