I am going to bump the post of lingo for newbies, it is great. That's how I became oriented.

Thanks, I gotta lot to learn while ttc. :-)

 

Paula - May 20

No problem, that why we are all here to help. How many dpo are you or when do you expect af? How long have you being ttc. This is not a test. Just wanted to offer encouragement in your quest.

 

keshia - May 20

Sure this isnt a test...lol. We've been ttc for 5 months. I am approx 15 dPO and expected AF on 5/15. last month she came 2 days early - i am never late. i have been running to that bathroom a dozen times a day becuase it feels like Af but when i get there nothing. i took an HP on thurs but got a BFN. today i noticed brown spotting - like 3 spots but nothing else. i am trying to wait a week to do another HP if no AF just so I dont upset myself with another BFN.

Are you temping? If you are temping and there is a constant elevated reading usually above 98 in the morning around waking then that is a good indication of prego. What hpt did you use?

i was temping last month but got real lazy about it this month. i have been really tired lately. I cant rembr which HPT it was either first response or ept. I want to think its a good sign but dont want to get depressed. if i dont see AF by next week, i will try another HPT and visit my doc.

Try temping starting tomorrow monring and see where your temps are and see if they stay elevated. If they drop you know what to expect. I know that ept and first response you need to have at least 50 ml of HCG in your urine and that is usually around 5.5 wks to 6 wks if you have low HCG. If you use the early response by First Response I believe it can detect at 20 ml of HCG, if you have a Dollar Tree near you the New Choice test is a $1 and it detects 25 ml.HCG very sensitive. Here is a cool website to look at http://www.pregnancy.org/article.php?sid=1197. Hope it helps. Baby dust to you!!!!!!!!!

I will def try the dollar tree - i wont feel quite as guilty about using multiple HPT if they only cost $1 and I know the temping is fairly reliable. You helped a great deal and made my morning go faster. Thanks and Baby Dust to you too!!!

 

Paula - May 20

Thanks so much, glad to be a source of encouragement. That's what we are here for. I don't have the problem of ttc but staying prego. I am trying it again after having my 4th m/c. I use the New Choice Ovul Test and HPT. It works for me and it is only a $1. Baby Dust to Ya!!!!!!!!!
