So... SO and I have been having a few problems, so we're calming down on TTC. It was stressing us out so bad with the constant OPK testing, and then sex was like a chore. Anyways. AF is due in 8 days and I'm cramping a lot. I've also had a ton of egg white discharge. I used an OPK a little bit ago (thinking maybe I was ovulating late, IDK)... it was negative. I hope AF isn't trying to come early :?

It could be implantation.



You aren't out for the month until AF shows! Good Luck!

dude bug us?! Come on!! At the very least it wouldn't bug me at all. I expected it and wanted to watch it darken!!!! You should ask for a blood draw just to put your mind at ease. When do you think you'll put up a due date?

Haha. Sometimes I feel like I go nuts and don't want people to get irritated haha.
I can post later. I've been doing afternoon tests because they're the best. I put a call into my midwife's office this morning, just waiting on a call back. That won't be until at least after 9am. She works with an MD and is a nice mix of md and midwife practices, so it's a toss up if they'll even do a blood test to see if levels are rising. But I need to ask. A very good BG friend of mine who we were pregnant and due together in July, then m/c together, then pregnant together again is having another miscarriage. I'm sick to my stomach this morning. From worry or that cereal who knows. But it'd be nice to have my mind at ease.

Do you feel anything spiritually about this? I have to ask because I always come back to when I felt like God was telling me "let me do this for you". I feel like it solidifies this baby. The fact that God wanted to give it to me, yes He could take it away, but I don't feel like He will. Anything like that? Do you feel different this time around?

I have a problem being so worried that it's hard to see past that emotion y'know? Jason has been amazing. He wrote this amazing long note to me about this and says he knows everything will be ok. That was really nice.
As far as symptoms go, I feel more. I felt absolutely nothing last time other than kinda tired.
My b**bs are kinda achey (and apparently more perky says J lol)
Absolutely NO sex drive. None. It's gone.
I just ate cereal and it actually made my stomach ache worse lol
And lots of CM, almost like at ovulation time.
Oh and I feel like I'm dying of thirst constantly. I can't get enough water. I don't want any warm liquids just tons of water.

I've been feeling the same way lately. 6 DPO as of today when going off of my calendar and the tests I took. I'm really hoping my mind isn't playing games on me. Fingers crossed for you!

Stress sucks. And it looks like it negatively effects me. I have conceived the last three times when I stop tracking my cycles :? Dang my OCD ways! Hopefully taking an easier approach will help!
I cramped a lot with my daughter from 7dpo. And this time I have a TON of CM like ovulation. Good luck!

I hope so. I tried so hard with B and in the end his failure to thrive ended it :( Broke my heart. It wasn't my lack of trying but his body not being able to digest something I ate. And here I was avoiding dairy, nuts, wheat etc. :(
