Kerri - February 25

Hi I've had many symptoms of preg and did one blood test (assuming its quant_tive -.05) and two HPT which also came back neg but still getting preg symptoms. The first week after I suspected something was different I had the sore nipples not as bad lately, cramping off and on still to date, noticed darkening of aerolas, increasing appet_te, and peaks and falls in my energy levels as I am a female bodybuilder. But I had a blood test done a week before on Feb 4 to see if I was pg but not due for my period Feb 10. The only other change that I noticed why I'm not convinced of the results of the test is that I normally don't get any pms symptoms for my period outside of my lower back aching two days before and then I'm fine. The above symptoms are new and my last so called period lasted two days with only some brown spotting and on the second day brown spotting with thick milky cm when normally I have a large flow and wear super tampons right from the start. I'm not worried though cause if I'm not we will try again but just find it strange and not sure if I should test again but will possibly wait until Mar 5.

Hello Kerri! I am also waiting for my af on the 7th. Hope it doesnt come!!!

 

Kerri - February 25

Hi Smiley, Me too but we can keep in touch until then. The only other thing I forgot to mention in the above question is that I have never used the pill so I a__sume it probably won't take long to conceive hopefully!!

 

Smiley - February 25

I was on the pill for 5 years. I have a five yr old and recently decided that I think i am ready for #2. I think that it is a good think that GOD doesnt give you more than you can handle, because before this i couldnt of done it!! Keep in touch.

Smiley, I agree that God doesn't give you more than you can handle and I know its difficult when you are trying. I forgot to mention some things I read about for trying that the best position for conception is man on top or doggie style which allows for deeper penetration and also putting a pillow under your hips to elevate them and then to lay there for at least half an hour (bring a book after hee hee) and a blanket cause it gets cold at night with the pillow underneath to allow the sperm to travel downward. I've been trying with the man on top and the pillow under the hips and just waiting to see if it works! Baby dust to you and let me know what's up, we'll wait for next week together. Hang in there!

Don't elevate your hips to high b/c it can cause the sperm to pool around your cervix. They do suggest this position but there is no need to stand on your head if you know what I mean.

That is funny. I heard that if you do like a half head stand kinda thing, they swim down there. But I cant say that i havent tried that. :) I think that all the things you hear about how others have concieved it is worth a shot. I have done it every which way like you said and 1 of them has to work. I guess we will wait until next week. Keep your fingers crossed and leggs open!! :)

Hey guys! I am due for my AF somewhere around the 5th. I'm not entirely sure of the date because for the past few months I have been anywhere from 25 to 28 days for my cycle length. I haven't gotton any signs so far which I am somewhat glad for because they just get my hopes up. How long have you all been trying? Me and My hubby have been trying for over a year now so I'm getting very anxious. Anyways... I thought I would join in on the wait! Baby Dust to you (and Me!)

 

Kerri - February 28

Kim, That's true but if we had to stand on our head to get the job done I'm sure we would (big laugh) but thanks for the advice for sure. Shannon and Smiley we've only been trying for about a few months but I'm still in the waiting game but something strange happened again over the weekend and need advice. As stated in my question, I'm not due till Mar 5 but yesterday had a small red patch about the size of a small kiwi fruit and then back to brown with cm which makes this the second time that this has happened to me as the last normal period I had was Jan 10. This only makes me 18 days from my last so called period which had no red flow and only brown spotting with clear cm off and on for a day and a half. I had the cramps and was nauseaus off and on on the weekend too. I took a HPG on Saturday and it came back negative its the cheap kind of home pg test. If I am pregnant it would make me 6 weeks. Its really confusing because one minute it points to being pregnant and the next I'm not so sure because of all the weird signs and was thinking of going to my family doctor to see what she thinks is up. So far after the little red flow yesterday none today as of yet. I hope I am pregnant but its hard to tell and if not we will just keep trying. Baby dust to you all and we'll wait together!

Hi! I am due on the 5th so I know how you feel. Good luck to you!

 

Kerri - February 28

Hi Mallory, Welcome to the around Mar 5 waiting time. Its so frustrating when you get certain symptoms and don't know for sure what's wrong or should be concerned. Two things though I do know for sure is that I never come early or have any type of spotting. But then when you test with an HPT and comes back negative then it really makes you wonder what's going on. But the HPT test I took was a cheap kind and wonder if they really work at all. They do recommend EPT and better brands to get results. So if nothing happens near the end of the week I will be making an appointment with my doctor to see what's up. But my advice to anyone else experiencing this type of problem would be to go to the doctor as soon as possible just to make sure nothing is wrong. Baby dust to all and keep in touch.

I took one of those stupid sheap tests too. I am not suspose to start until the 7th, so I can see why it would say negative. But with my son, I found out at 3 weeks. I guess I need to get a public brand and try agian around the 4th or jus tbe patient and test after my af doesnt come. Good luck to you all and baby dust.

 

Kerri - February 28

Hi Smiley, If you decide to do a public brand of HPT, please let me know and I called my doctor at lunch to tell her the problem I was having and they requested that I get a urine sample in and to make an appointment for blood work and the funny thing is I had a funny feeling that it would come back negative too. Let us know what brand you pick and when you test. Also what kind of test did you use when you had your son? Keep us posted and baby dust to you!

 

Smiley - February 28

Thanks Kerri! I used EPT and it was visible right away. I guess I thought that I often hear people say they all work the same, so what the hell. I gave it a shot. :( Nope, not what I wanted. But i was told in advance not to get discouraged if it was neg. because it is too early. O yes I will definatly let you know what happens on the 4th. I am trying again. Good luck to all. AND lots of baby dust!

 

Smiley - February 28

The name of the one that i took yesterday was Answer. It was $7.00 for 2 and the EPT was $14.00

 

Kerri - March 1

Hi Smiley, Thanks for the info on the tests and actually that was a good price as I paid $11.99 for two of the cheap ones called Exact so that was a good price for the Answer tests and not bad either for the EPT. They sure are expensive. Also I would wait until the end of the week again. As for me I couldn't get the urine sample to the doctor last night because of the weather (it sure is wicked today). But I had no spotting yesterday and a little brown spotting again this morning. I swear if I'm not pregnant then there is something wrong. Last period was only a day and a half with brown spotting and cm then Sunday a small patch of red then pinkish with cm, nothing yesterday and then brown spotting today with cramps off and on for about the last few weeks. What do u think? Something up? Hopefully I will be able to get that sample to the doc's office tomorrow as still the weather is too bad to travel in to drop it off. But we'll all still wait together!!

Kerri~ You must be a northerner getting hammered by the winter storm. Don't get discouraged just yet, your spotting could be implantation bleeding, which is quite normal and can last 1-5 days. I just bought a few tests (New Choice is the name of them, and at my store, they were kept behind the check out desk) from the dollar store (Dollar Tree to be exact) because I read on this site yesterday (someone did some research on all hpt's) that they are the most sensitive of all the ones out there. They detect 25mIU/ml, and the name brand/ more expensive brands aren't nearly as sensitive. I think the fact that they are made in Canada was mentioned as the reason. Not sure what that had to do with it. Anyways, give them a try, I got a faint positive today using them, and my period is due on Friday the 4th. Let me know what happens. :o)
