    Thanks for the faith @SP128 - I've come to realize this is the most dreaded week of my cycle. I started wearing my lighter colored underwear so I can see when the spotting starts. It always starts in the morning. It's just the more that time passes the less faith I have. But there is still a little hope left in me or I wouldn't have saved my maternity clothes.

    @ladipale - I hate it because I know its another month we had decent timing actually better timing than last and yet I just know spotting will begin Friday no later :( 

    My bloat is feeling better - it must have been from eating out too much over the weekend.  I'm not use to it.

    @vlagrl29 - I actually have no idea if we had good timing... we likely had sex in FW but since I'm not tracking ovulation not sure when it happened.

    we don't track either but my cervical mucus is very regular so when I see it that's when it's on.  Usually we start having sex around CD 6ish after AF is long gone and continue until it's dried up and then add another one just in case - tend to be done BDing around CD16 or 17.

    I've now reached the "oh I felt something come out so it must be spotting phase, better check the undies".

    Haha @sp128 DDs noticed me doing it and says gross. I should probably stop it while she's home for summer.

    @vlagrl29 - I'm in the same boat with checking undies. I HATE IT! Mostly because of my ridiculous short cycle last month.

    And i'm same with CM but we missed a couple days because of kids being sick.

    I've cried in months past when spotting starts before AF but tonight was the first time I had a cry before spotting has even happened. I use to be positive and now I'm finding myself back to negative expecting what happens every month to come. It is what it is and I'm constantly reminding myself to let go. I have no control and if I force it - it probably won't happen.

    I'm sure it is @sp128 - DH though thinks I'm nuts. I told him if I could just get myself to not care and throw all the baby stuff out of our basement.  But I know I can't even do that.  Oh well it was my 1 freakout this month so hopefully that was it for me until next month ha!

    Maybe if you got rid of all your stuff you could jinx yourself in a good way..... ;). This is such a roller coast of positivity and negativity! Try not to be so hard on yourself girl.

    @amberruka I was actually considering doing some of this in hopes that it would "jinx" me into a viable pregnancy.   I can't get rid of my DS's stuff just yet even though there is stuff he doesn't use anymore but I was thinking about getting rid of my maternity clothes

    I so believe in "jinxing" yourself. For me, my jinxes were paying for VIP ff and going to re. Didn't work for me but I totally support you ladies in purging your maternity clothes.

    I actually listed my maternity clothes on CL and got a few emails and then when I was taking photos of the clothes I just couldn't do it! Like newborn clothes - can't do it. So I know I can't get rid of baby gear either - it would break my heart and make me feel like I'm totally giving up so I do what's best for me and not track cycles.

    Heck, I'm still buying maternity clothes just because they're so comfortable  :|  Whether we have another kid or not, I'll probably wear maternity clothes for a while.

    Pregnancy Ticker

    because I feel a responsibility of knowing if I'm pregnant or not I tested today with an OPK since they detect HCG.  No flashy or smiley face obviously but there was a very faint line next to the dark line when I trashed it.  So when you ovulate does it give you a faint line going to darker once you are on peak day. I know I should probably just get a real preg test but I just hate testing.  I  may pick some up at the dollar tree tonight because I'm cheap.  The only reason I would test is because I would feel responsible if I was pregnant, didn't know it and needed progesterone supplementation.  My plan next time would be to call OB as soon as possible to get the HCG and prog tested at same time.

    BTW I hate those advanced OPK tests - they take forever to turn

    @vlagrl29 - yes, they get darker and darker and OPK is not 'positive' unless test line is darker than control. Buy HPTs for sure if you want to know...

    Good luck.

    I'm chillin at 7 dpo. I have a girls weekend which should be a good distraction although I also know the girls will want to talk about my losses, etc. We get deep - its cool, just have to mentally prepare.
