I had posted in the 2WW thread about seeing a temp spike this morning, but I was still going to hold off on testing until I saw my temp tomorrow, because I felt like AF was coming: a lot of the same symptoms. But then DH suggested grabbing dinner at this place that makes awesome margaritas, so I figured I might as well test. And it came up positive, super fast, on a Clear Blue Easy, which I bought before I learned the evils of blue dye from you fine ladies, and again on a FRER dipped in the same cup!
What we did: first cycle temping, third altogether. Sex on O minus 1 and O plus 1. Prenatal vitamins and green tea maybe a half dozen times before O.
Symptoms: I still can't quite believe it because I'm feeling a lot of PMS symptoms, cramps and bloating, though the cramps are lighter than they'd be the day before AF showed up. Tender breasts and sensitive nipples, too, both of which I noticed pre AF last month.
I wanted to thank you ladies for being a wealth of information. I poked my head into this forum our first month TTC and saw all the talk about temping and charting and wrote it off as too complicated and not something I wanted to bother with. My mistake, which I learned pretty quickly. You are a great group of women who make this sometimes stressful or frustrating process much easier to live with and are fantastic at putting things into perspective. Good luck to you all.
