I've never been in the 2ww before. Told myself I wouldn't obsess or anything when we started TTC (despite having waited SO long for it!).. and here I am, obsessing! AF isn't due until 11/19 and I sit here thinking, "Am I pregnant? Am I not?" ahh, the impatience! Tell me it gets easier... And we don't plan on telling anyone until I'm 12 weeks along when I DO get pregnant?? I guess this will be good practice then, huh?!

It is certainly good practice! Sunday was CD 15 for me, too, so I guess we are cycle buddies! Anyway, try not to over-analyze too much right now--the earliest we could possibly have symptoms is next Sunday, since implantation takes five-seven days . . .

When will you start testing? I have had at least one chemical pregnancy and a miscarriage, and I know by now that I am not PG unless my temp hits 98 degrees--I have taken a break from temping because I was sick and had a fever but I will probably start again tomorrow if I can remember in the morning. And, regardless of my temps I'll probably start testing on CD 9 just for something to do . . .

Anyway, feel free to join the TTCing thread--that is where we end up doing most of our chatting. ;-)

I was insane for our two week wait. It didn't help that I was charting and that my chart looked SO different then it ever had before, plus I had some symptoms and was sure- but then also sure I wasn't- you know?


We were on vacation and the last week I was checking fertility friend and looking at my chart every day. I also took 2- negative tests but then fertility friend changed my O date and I got my BFP right after our vacation. But anyways it was definitely hard for me.


I also had to tell a few people right away like my mom- I think that helped.

So are you at about 10 days past O at this point? Because you could always test :)....

AF is due on Thursday if she shows up on her average of 33 days. I am TRYING to hold out until then to test, but I know I will probably cave before then!! Symptoms right now that make me think I'm getting a BFP include increased body temp (I don't temp before getting out of bed, but I know my body temp is usually 97.5 and it's been around 98.7 lately), cramping (I cramped when pregnant with DD and didn't test until CD43 because I thought the cramping meant AF was coming! I don't usually cramp until AF is actually here), and I was VERY emotional this weekend (even more than usual). Still, sometimes I think I'm more suited for a natural disappointment than one that comes from a pee stick, KWIM?

Ooh, that all sounds so promising!! I know my two big symptoms were much higher then normal temps, and having to pee a lot.

I can understand not wanting to test too early though, seeing just one line sucks. I hope your TTC is already over :)

I got a BFN last night and another this morning, so I'm not feeling so hopeful anymore. Now I'll just wait for AF to arrive... if she doesn't by the 27th (she's due Thursday), I'll test again then. That's our anniversary, and by CD41 I should be able to get something!!
