I am officially playing the waiting game. OPK on Sunday night was neg.. Monday morning was a bit darker.. Monday afternoon I got my positive. This morning I tested just to see if I could get a stronger positive, but no dice. Tested again after work, and there wasn't even a line. That was the smallest amount of time I've ever had a positive OPK. Luckily, we were able to BD last night and today. . You know.. for good measure.. and pleasure! Haha.. and now we wait. My subconscious is twiddling her thumbs impatiently. Baby dust to everyone♥

Welp...My last period was July 18th.
Still no period! :) Except sunday I had a light pink/red dot, that's it.
Then yesterday I took a test, negative. Then that afternoon when using the bathroom I had some brown/old blood looking stuff. None since :)
Itchy right b**b, crampy, and tiredness.
I hope this is it! :)

Good luck! I've had AF type cramps since yesterday evening, but I'm not suppose to get AF until the 3rd.... So not for about 6 more days.

Hopefully the evil b**** stays away! :)
I am late, and my mom wanted me to take a test yesterday since I was with her but I thought it was to early anyways. I took an EPT.



The negative kind of lets me down but I still think it was to early esp. since I still had some spotting yesterday afternoon.

How many DPO do you wait to test? I know most wait 10.. but by that time, my period already comes. My luteal phase averages 10-11 days.. I guess I'll just have to do what the doc says.. Wait until CD 35.. and if no AF then, do a home preg. test. Gah!



Also.. EWCM.. AFTER ovulation? Wth is my body doing? Stupid Clomid messing with me.. :x

I always start at 7. That's a super short lp. Is the clomid just for ovulation or to also help with your lp? I've read vitamin b6 (I think that's the one) is suppose to help lengthen the lp. I thought I read that it ups your chances of conceiving if your lp is 12+ days long.

Clomid can extend your LP. Mine is normally 12 days but when I took it last cycle my LP was 13 days. Also ewcm after ovulation is normal. You can have a spike of estrogen for a day and get fertile cm.

As far as I know, the Clomid was just to help with ovulation. My longest lp in the past 3 months was 11 days. Ugh, why does my body have to be all screwed up?! Le sigh. I know it could be much worse.. I know this. It's just frustrating is all I suppose. It's also our 1st month TTC.. so it's all a bit of an overwhelming experience.

It's just weird because the Clomid has made me super dry this month. Like, hardly any CM at all. and then today.. BOOM. It's like my body is saying.. Hellooooo. I've never had CM like this after ovulation before. So, it's different.

I think I have serious line eyes from looking at everyone's bfp tests all week lol. I SWEAR I see a shadow of a line, but I can't tell if its for real.... (From my test this morning). I thought i saw something in the time limit, but if i AM seeing anything, its just so light that idk if its real. and dont even bother asking for a pic, there is no way that will show up.... im going to chalk it up to line eyes from all the recent bfp tests for now. its been driving me crazy all day lol. I'll be happy to buy a FRER in a couple of days and hopefully get a clear result this weekend. I'm only around 7-9 dpo, so it's still super early.
