  • Well I should go here, but after a positive OPK on Sunday and a lot of EWCM that ended yesterday, my temp actually dropped. WTAF? I slept like crap last night and I started the prednisone for my headache, so I wonder if that has anything to do with it. Either way, DH and I will be using protection the rest of this cycle be/c the last time my body faked me out and my temp didn't go up, my body released a triploidy egg, Not doing that again! I'm hoping that my 97.56 temp was due to crappy sleep and I will get a better spike after a better nights sleep? Otherwise, this just adds insult to injury after my crappy week.

  • 12DPO and BFN here. Don't think it's my month again. Days like today I feel like it will never be my month. I go for my yearly GYN appointment in a few weeks and I'm not even sure what to ask him.

  • Lots of thoughts and prayers for a super strong beta for you on Thursday @DungeonTrollMel.

    Sorry about the temp drop @chloe97. Hopefully it's just the meds messing with you. Are they at least making you feel better? 

    @Taggarab so sorry about the BFN, this process really can get discouraging. Hugs <3

    I should be coming over here to join by the end of the week! Bring on the crazy!

    still have my fingers crossed for you @BitterBetty12.

  • @BitterBetty12 Congrats girl! Always good to see a TTGP lady get that BFP.

    @DungeonTrollMel FX for you. We're all here rooting for you and good betas!


    I'm in the TWW now as well. It's been a crazy week, where unfortunately my grandfather passed away. I took time off the Bump to spend time with family and in the meantime, I got CH (which I guess on the bright side is good because BD wasn't happening once we heard the news). This is my first TWW after a loss and I'm terrified of both a BFN and a BFP. I'm trying to keep myself grounded and say it's ok if this isn't our month but we all know that barely works.

    How does everyone handle their testing? I can't decide if a BFN is worse or the waiting for AF is worse. I think deep down I know that even if I get a negative, I'll still have a sliver of hope it was too early, etc. etc.

  • Looks like I'm in the same boat as @Taggarab.   12 DPO and BFN this morning.  :(  
    I've been having crazy symptoms this month, and BSC is out of control.  I had a temp drop on Monday, so at this point I guess I'm hoping I just tested too soon. 

    @DungeonTrollMel sending good thoughts your way!

    @chloe97 FX that one temp was a fluke! Maybe a fallback rise? Only time will tell but I have everything crossed for you that it was successful ovulation. 

    @hartmich Thanks girl  <3 I really appreciate it. I haven't been super active over there in the last month but I still follow everyone. Also I am so incredibly sorry to hear about your loss  <3 My thoughts are with you and your family. As for testing, it is absolutely TERRIFYING to get a BFP after loss. But it's also incredibly exciting. And emotional. I have always been in camp 'I want to know if AF is going to show'. Hence why I was crazy and tested so early. But that's absolutely a personal preference. Knowing early can also cause unnecessary worry. FX.

    @Taggarab Sorry for the BFN. Having a yearly appointment coming up is definitely a good opportunity to start talking to your doctor about what is going on. I don't know what you should ask either but if I think of anything I'll let you know!

    ETA: @dpjennifer sorry for the BFN as well. Hugs.

    I'm still waiting for my beta. Going to call around lunchtime today if I haven't heard from the office yet. Hopefully I'll have an update for you ladies later  <3

  • Congrats to everyone who's gotten a BFP in October! Gives me hope!

    Today is 8 DPO and I tested this morning like a masochist. BFN. I got a BFP 9 DPO last time, so I'm convinced that if I get another BFN tomorrow I am really really out this month.  I keep reminding myself that it's not over until AF sings, but I'm feeling very pessimistic.  Maybe next month I'll try acupuncture or reiki or some other new agey thing that'll make me feel like I'm doing something productive about this whole situation.
  • Congrats @BitterBetty12! And @DungeonTrollMel - keep hope alive!
    @fivetimesnoluck - glad everyone is OK and you are handling thing well.

  • @hartmich so sorry about your grandfather passing, especially so soon after your loss :( Big hugs to you! As for which would be easier to take...BFN or waiting for AF....I'm always torn on this. The BFNs are hard. The only good thing is that by the time AF does show I'm usually not AS sad. That said, the first AF after loss is extremely hard regardless and can be very triggering, even if you know it's coming :/ Obviously I hope you get a BFP and don't have to worry about it but just thought I'd try to share my thoughts <3

    AFM, another BFN this morning just "to be sure" *eyeroll* Sorry to the other BFNs in here, too :( It feels like CD1 will be today or tomorrow so I'm trying to find out when my next FW will be and if DH will be home...and of course can't help but notice that the end of this next cycle will be right around our anniversary ....  :#




  • Back to WTO for me. I started spotting yesterday at 12DPO and bleeding today. Frustrating, but I guess my LP isn't necessarily too short right? I hope some of you have better luck this month.

  • @taggarab sorry for AF showing up. I usually have an 11-12 day LP and my Dr said that's fine, as long as it's not 10 or less. 
  • @Taggarab I'm sorry you're back in two :( My LP has been 11 days and I'm wondering if that's my problem. so frustrating!
