Hello, ladies! I guess I'm joining in the 2WW now...FF says that I OV'd on the 15th, though I still haven't gotten a positive OPT! According to FF I am 4DPO...so at least I had a reprieve from 4 days of the 2WW hysteria (lol). I've got my fingers and toes crossed for everyone out there at the middle and tail end of their 2WW - hopefully we'll have a few BFPs to celebrate this month! Happy 4th of July!!

Today I'm on day 23 of a 28 day cycle. And 7 DPO. And man- I have cramps going on. Should I be thinking- oh well I guess it's AF who's due to come here soon. Or look at it as hey maybe its a "sign". I have no idea. And comments on this??? ~~~Happy 4th of July~~~ ****BABY DUST**** Smile Mary Ok, So this is a post that I wrote earlier today. Since then I just couldnt wait to take a HPT. So I took one and it was a BFN!! But however yes I've read the stories of how this is early to take one, I still had to! I just wanted to pee on stick!!! I'm due for AF this Thursday July 9th. Should I wait it out until the? Or try again in a couple of days? When is the earliest that you could actually take a HPT and get a BFP????????

Santinosmommy~ Sorry you got a BFN, but like you said it IS a little early to be testing (I completely understand the urge to POAS, however lol). You should take into account that it can take five to ten days for the embryo to implant, and that you don't start having hGC in your system until implantation occurs. Then it takes about two or three days after implantation for hGC to be present in your urine - hGC levels should double every 24 hours or so, so with a sensitive test (25 units to 50 units needed) so 13 to 14DPO is probably the earliest you should test. I would wait until AF is due before I tested again, but I know that can be near impossible to do Wink Let us know how it plays out for you this month - I'm hoping that you tested too early and got a false BFN!

Santinosmommy~ One of the worst things about the 2WW is that early pregnancy signs are often the same or similar to PMS and AF signals...the cramping could be a very good thing! Or it could mean that AF is coming... I have decided to keep on online journal this month where I can write about everything DH and I did prior to OV and then every little 'symptom' I experienced on every DPO. At the very least it keeps me occupied so I am not stressing about every little twinge my body is experiencing.

that's what i am doing too. i am keeping a little journal, and writing my symptoms down each day. today i am 6 dpo, and i have been having some mild cramping off and on today. i'm taking it as a good sign, and you should too until you have reason to believe otherwise. keep positive and it will happen. i just can't wait to get that bfp!! i know we are all so anxious during this wait, but when we do get it, it will be soo worth it!

Hey ladies....I hope everyone is surviving this 2WW. I'm 6DPO and nothing....no sore BBs, no nausea, no nothing. I should start AF on the 12th and right now, I don't even have PMS symptoms. The only thing I have going on is horrible, horrible gas and bloating. Sorry but I'm at a total loss with it. 10 minutes after I eat, I blow up like a balloon and I'm miserable. It started on Wednesday and I was hoping it was just a side effect of the tubal reversal but I called my dr and he said that any bloating would have been in the first week and it's been 3 weeks tomorrow. I don't know but it sucks and the worse part is that it doesn't matter what I eat, the results are the same. I have a dr's appt tomorrow with my ob/gyn so I hope she can clear this up. Any thoughts?

Still chugging along in the 2WW. Had a good 4th... hope everyone did too and was able to get slightly distracted from all the TTC!! Smile It was a welcomed distraction until people at some point got around to the when ya having babies talk. I hate lying, but I don't want nobody to know we are trying so it was soon, little more time to our selves, etc. Trying to be sly and not drink alcohol was tricky!!! I didn' want to tip anyone off so luckily DH was the bartender and would make me a pina colada "special" for me. HEHE. OF course it was a virgin, but everyone else thought I was joining in on the fun. This cycle is sooo different from last cycle. NOTHING. I haven't had the cramping like last month, the sore BBS... in fact I have felt oddly great! Today I had some moments of irratibility back to happy though... sign of PMS maybe.. sometimes Ill get a sharp twingy pain in my lower stomach... could be gas or something else... soo odd. Maybe since I feel different its my month??? argh... wish I could know. 7dpo so still tooo early to know.... still hoping for great news for us all!!

Jaimiesgirl~ Ugh! That bloating sounds terrible - on the plus side, bloating can be a sign of pregnancy. I have my fingers crossed for you! I am currently 5DPO and had a really low temp today (dropped below my coverline) - I don't know what that means in the long run, though I know you can get a dip during implantation...I'm thinking this isn't my month, though. I've been having some awful mood swings and been really cranky, but no cramping or bloating or tender bbs... I hope everyone gets a BFP this month!

The bloating is terrible.. I'm the same way and have been for a while. I notice it more after I OV (now that I am charting anyways). Also, I started keeping track in a journal of my symptoms a couple of months ago, and it really helps you see a pattern or see whats going on. It also is a bit of a stress reliever just writing it down as its a way of getting it off your mind. Smile
