Glad to hear your man stood up for you Crafty. What a silly thing for her to say
Thanks for the advice and well wishes, girls! I'm pretty certain I O'd on the 11th (EWCM + light cramping) and because my cycles and LP have been really regular when charting to ensure I'm O'ing ok this time around - textbook 28 day cycle & 13 or 14 day LP. However, I guess it *could* have been a day or two later as I didn't chart temps this month. Our 'well timed' BD was the morning of the 11th.
I've done so many tests now, I don't remember What I do remember... I took at least one test before AF as I'd been feeling really different. Mind you, I tried for 1.5 years or so with infertile ex and never felt different quite like I did this time. Then again, I don't know what being pregnant feels like Of course , but I tsk tsked myself for testing early
I had very strong period-type cramping and backache on Saturday (25th) which was the day I would expect AF to jump in like clockwork. I was certain I was out and just waited for red. Nada. Still light cramping here and there on Sunday, but I tested just in case (technically the first day of my missed period) and
Cramping has now alleviated almost completely, with just some occasional pulls. Today is 3 days late. Still no AF, still this morning. I've got 3 different types of HPTs - nothing on any of the brands. I guess I'll go back to the first one, which is the First Response brand (?)
I guess I'm kind of expecting that I'll get my period as that's always been the story... but the cramping situation has been weird. That and I on Saturday night and retched at the smell of bacon yesterday. BACON! I love bacon! And we had to leave a cafe because I thought I was going to be sick after having a piece of toast with a little egg and mushroom
As you would all understand, I just wanna know so that I can stop thinking about it! I'm not devastated if I'm not pregnant, and it's a blessing if I am. All is good either way. It's just the darn wait
Geez... Sounds preg to me!!! Really hope you find out one way or another!!
Did a CB test tonight. Thought it may be a light positive, but after some research I think evap line. Blah!
You can usually discount an evap by the colour. An evap doesn't have the colour that a real test has, it looks grey instead of pink or blue dyed.
God you could of let ME scrutinize it more
new in here, hubby n I are "in discussion" about ttc
He's very blasé ... I'm more planned etc...
Hoping for Sometime soon
