Re: The Official TTC Thread!

It was miserable. I have a 2 year old and a 7 year old and we are living in our house while renovating it and my husband just started med school, so TTC this month was out of the question. I think I O'd late due to the pneumonia so am not totally sure what CD I am on. Theoretically AF should come Fr...

Re: The Official TTC Thread!

Hi Dainty, I am definitely not new, but am TTC:-) I got pneumonia this month so we didn't really try anything, but we are planning to try very deliberately this coming cycle:-)

thanks April, I am not RH-.

I just had a good long cry with DH and E walked in on that and very sweetly asked me if I was sad and needed a hug to help me feel better, which made me cry more.

I started bleeding today, bright red, and got a negative HPT, so pretty sure I am miscarrying...I am just 5 weeks along, do I need to call my Dr? What should I expect?

Re: The Official TTC Thread!

April that looks pretty close to positive for me. I am a huge fan of the smiley face OPKs though as my Wondfos tend to hover on near positive for a long time. This cycle I just used 2 smiley face OPKs, but in the past I would use wondfos throughout and then when it looked close to positive would use...

Re: The Official TTC Thread!

In the first pic you can see the progression (though they are a little darker in person). You can also see the darker whole window on the first test. In the first pic the 6/7 test was taken after less than 1 minute--I was just so happy to see the line. He second pic was the 6/7 test after 5 minutes.

Re: The Official TTC Thread!

Things are looking good..digi says "pregnant" and the FR got a nice line today. I think I am 14 dpo today. Cycles are kind of irregular lately, so could be anywhere from 12-16 dpo. I had so much anxiety (and awful, awful nausea/hyperemesis) when pregnant with E. I am going to enjoy this as...

Thanks ladies. Hopefully my tests will arrive today. I looked at the old tests again and realized the whole test window is a darker color on the first test, so I don't necessarily think my lines are darker as compared to my other tests.
