Bonita, some people see a little spotting around the time they ovulate. Some people see it before, or on the day, or right after. I think its a little different for everyone. I see it occasionally, but not every month. The timing sounds like that could be what you're seeing. FX the timing works out well for you this month!

AF came for me (over two weeks late) yesterday, so I'm on to a new cycle. After confirming a BFN, I was glad to see AF just get on with it. I'm reminding myself that my body is purifying and preparing for a new cycle.

Hi everyone -
Just got caught up with the thread. I'm sorry for those of you out for April. :(. I hope we all get our BFP in May!

I'm not sure what is going on with my body right now. Possibly TMI, but yesterday and today I had some light brown spotting. I'm 2.5 weeks post AF but pink pad has my O for later this week. I'm having a hard time believing it is implantation bleeding since CP is pretty low and I don't think I've even O'd yet. I've only has mid cycle spotting 1 or 2 times in the past and not for two years or more...

I don't know. I'm trying to not obsess with tracking and it seems like I don't produce a lot of CM so that sign is difficult for me to interpret. I guess we will see.

Baby dust to you all!!

Dana :)

Hi all. Just want to say, I'm thinking of all of you!

I just realized I totally forgot to update the thread (I'm out since last week). Last week was pretty chaotic, We had to go to a funeral in the UK (I live in the Netherlands) so I haven't logged in to SP since.

Anyway, guess I'll see most of you in next month's thread :-( I've decided to try to not think about this whole TTC. I feel like I'm getting a bit obsessed. So I'll go with the flow and hope for the best.

My body continues to be mystifying. AF did finally come . . . and now I have brown spotting at the end of it (which is not normal for me). Trying to refocus now to eating well and exercising. This last week I ate horribly.

Hugs to all of you. It sucks to feel like your body is working against you.

Well, I'm right there with you both. AF is officially two weeks late today, but blood test yesterday came back negative (after several negative HPTs). Making an appointment with my doctor for next week to figure out what's going on. Sometimes the positive affirmations help me and at other times I just feel like a fraud for even hoping.

I'm going to check that out Lmswebnet. I've been doing a free meditation program with Deepak and Oprah. It's still going on and is for 21 days. I think they leave some of the past ones on there for 5 days. If anyone is interested.

I'm sorry Malissa. We've all been there. I found this podcast a few weeks ago in iTunes. The series is called My Thought Coach by Stin (astinproject). There was an episode on May 10, 2012 with affirmations for fertility. It's free and it's only 7 min long. I know it sounds kind of silly, but it really helped me.

Edited on 4/23 to correct the name of the podcast author.

Temp was down below coverline this morning. Waiting for AF to start any time. Now to eat right again—I've been stress eating the last few days . . . and with Easter candy and potlucks galore, that did not work out well. Back to calorie counting, pushing water, and getting in the workout today. Interestingly enough, I'm not really disappointed today—I think I got all of that out over the weekend (I was seriously bummed yesterday).

Guess we're in the same boat Jennifer. I'm 15 DPO, AF is 1 day late. Had a little spotting yesterday, but then it stopped. Tested negative again this morning. Ah! I hate this waiting!

I guess I figured since with my first two pregnancies the results were clear right away, if I was pregnant now it should be, too . . . I know that is false reasoning in a lot of ways, I just really wish bodies were consistant! Thanks for the link.

Good luck Jennifer, I hope you get a positive result! I read that HPTs aren't reliably accurate when AF is just a few days late http://contraception.about.com/od/contrace

And good luck with the TWW Malissa!

13dpo. Temp is still up. Pregnancy test is still negative. Period is two days late. I have no idea what is going on. But I'm ready for it to stop.

5DPO. We shall see. Didn't do the greatest with timing, so not very hopeful. Not very hopeful, at all.

Walked to our local grocery today to pick up a few things. The pharmacy only carried one brand of pregnancy tests—Accu-clear. Sadly, not digital. Guess I'll try again tomorrow. Either way, if AF doesn't come, I'll call the doc on Monday.

My results are inconclusive. I studied that test hard and may have seen a REALLY faint line—or may have wanted to see a line so badly I thought I did. I'm now 12 dpo and AF is a day late. Temp is still elevated this morning. I'm now getting a bit worried wondering what my body is doing if I'm not pregnant. Bleh. If I get out to get groceries today, I may pick up a digital test. What I have now is the Walgreens One-Step, and fertility friend does not seem to rank it very high.

Good luck! Can't wait to see another BFP...

13DPO for me. Temp still elevated. AF is due tomorrow. Couldn't help myself and took a test: BFN. Could be too early though.

I'm starting to feel like I'm waiting to win the lottery and have all those people around me who are winning all the time. I suspect my SIL could be pregnant (would be baby #4). She's the kind of woman who gets pregnant every time her hubby just as much as looks at her. I'm really happy for her if she's pregnant again, but I can't help feeling a bit jealous.

I know, right? And I really wish they had talked about cm during the pre-adolescent talk about menstrual cycles. I never had a clue what it was! As a teen, I really thought that maybe there was some bodily function I was not fully in control of (that I should be). Seriously, why don't they tell you those things? Or was I sleeping in class that day?

I'm sorry for your loses, Jennifer. I hope this month is the one for you!
The only thing I've been tracking is my O calendar, I have a 32-33 day cycle, and my CM. DH and I were using the rhythm method as BC (successfully for 2+ years), so I know my fertle days (or at least enough to avoid them). As for the CM, I took notice of when TTC DD & just paid attention since then. It's funny how you never notice these things about your body until you look for them!

Good to hear, Ali! Today I am bemoaning my short luteal phase. I usually consider that a blessing during the TTW, but realizing that the claims of being able to take tests certain days before anticipated period don't really apply to me.

I've technically been trying for over a year now. I say technically because I have been pregnant twice during the last year. Had one miscarriage at 11 weeks and the next at 8. Hoping that the third time is the charm . . .

I'm out as of this morning so back to 1. I think this is probably considered a 2nd April hopeful just because my cycles are short, even though my period would be due the first week of May? I don't know.

10dpo this morning. My luteal phase tends to be 10 days, so when my temp went up this morning, I tested. I probably shouldn't have. I stared at the thing and held it up to the light, and pretty sure that it was a negative. Guess I'll test again on Saturday if no AF before.

Sorry Kat and QTLADY! Hope you'll have better luck next month! I'm still in. 10DPO today and AF is due next Sunday. BD-timing was really good this month, but for some reason I have the feeling that I'm not pregnant. Well, I'll just have to wait to be sure... Wish me luck!

My cycles aren't that short unfortunately. I am not due for AF quit yet but since I am already spotting I am assuming this is like every other month so far. May will hopefully be the month!

Sorry to hear that Kat. I think I am also out. So will this mean a second April hopeful or just May? My cycles are so short.

Pretty sure I am out for the month. I haven't been tracking this month and I shouldn't start AF for a week but I started spotting today (this is usual). Good luck to everyone else!

7dpo here. I'm exhausted and my breasts are definitely sore.
FF is listing Friday as test day. My luteal phase is usually 10 days long. So my temp on Friday should be a good indication of whether I should test or not.

How is everyone doing? I am 10dpo today and had some brown spotting on Sat and yesterday. I did break down and test yesterday and it was a BFN, but I know it is early. AF should be here Wed or Thurs, so we shall see.

Same here. I'd like to know what's going on. And to know whether I'm just having a long cycle or I'm late. Don't want to get my hopes up for nothing. I also know what you mean about being to controlling and obsessed. But for me I choose being more aware of my cycle over the risk of becoming a little obsessed.

I started temping and I have learned a lot about myself and my body. At first I wondered if it would drive me crazy, and it might have like the first month, but now I welcome it. It's actually really interesting. I frequent another board that is just for TTC and I have learned more than I thought possible about charting! lol

I take my temperature every day. I like to know what my body is doing and I think it helps keep me from freaking out more often. I like knowing when I can expect certain things (like AF or hormonal shifts). I started temping before we were trying to get a sense of what my cycle does and when I ovulate.

Yep, definitely out. I'm not really surprised since I don't think our timing was that great but I'm also not sure if I want to start tracking everything.... I tend to always want to have control and all the info but since we are just starting, I don't know if I want to "force" it. I also feel some pressure since we are starting a little late (I'm 33, DH 32). Thoughts on tracking vs not?

I will let you know how the concert is. We are seeing Pentatonix, the winners of The Sing-Off season 3. They are an amazing acapella group that occasionally will use instruments. Here are two videos if you want to check them out... Let me know what you think

And I think I'm out. Leave it to DH to find the bright side "that just means more practicing!" Lol. We are going into the city (NYC) tomorrow for a concert, so I guess that means I will be able to enjoy some wine or a cocktail.... Good luck to everyone still in! I know many of you have been trying for a long time. I hope you all get your BFPs!

Good luck to everyone this month!

I always had long cycles too, and actually the first month we were TTC, I had my longest ever (44 days). It was crazy since it was our first month trying. Took many tests, all BFN. After that I had a random 28 day cycle and then things leveled out to be about 32 every month. Still to this day not sure what was going on that first cycle!

TTC can be so confusing and frustrating!!

My cycles changed after each miscarriage. After I stopped birth control, they went to 26 days, which was rather awful for periods, but amazing for TTC. I'm now at 29/30 days.

Looks like our cycles are pretty close to one another! Looks like I'm 3DPO right now. AF is due Sun 20th.

@Jennifer, I can't imagine how you must feel. Hope your next BFP will be the one that sticks!

@Bonita, I know what you mean. With me the strange thing is, it seems that my cycle suddenly became a few days shorter when I started TTC. I have no idea why, but as long as it doesn't get too short I guess I it's fine. Anyone else noticing changes in their cycle since TTC?

Baby dust to all of you! Hope April will bring us our BFP's!

Just checking in. In the 2WW now, I think. Lol. AF due next week, so we will see. It's funny how when I wasn't ready to start a family I didn't mind AF every five weeks.. But now that we are TTC, these long cycles are the worst... Baby dust to you all!

My fx for you! I can understand why you would be hesitant to keep going. Certainly do what you feel you can emotionally handle.

I'm currently 4dpo. Last month I was spotting at 2dpo for like a week. *knock on wood* this time.

Vacation is about a month away. I defer to motivational quote on our living room wall..."Good things take time."

I'm sorry Malissa. But enjoy your vacation!

I'm CD14 now. No O detected yet. I'm using OPK's for the first time, and I find it hard to interpret the test results.

We're doing great BD-ing this month. I agree every month is different BD-ing. Guess I was lucky that this weekend was our anniversary. Talk about great timing! We had lots of time together just the two of us. We went out, had fun and were relaxed. Hope we can keep that up until O.

Baby dust to all of us!

17, and negative this morning so I think I am just getting desperate. And no, I gave up temping a long time ago, but that was the other thing, I had woken up feeling hot a few days after. Oh well. Thinking I am going to schedule an appt with the RE when we're on vacation.

I think I'm done with my fertile period and not really feeling that hopeful this month. I guess some months are better than others with the BD. Today is CD 12 and i think tomorrow I will most likely get my crosshairs and I will be 3dpo.

Since that was several days ago, a test should be accurate now, I'd think. Hoping for you!

I should be ovulating any day now . . .

Trying to convince myself that when I was out that it wasn't the mother of all implantation bleeds. I know this convienient mild nausea is probably due to sinus drainage and this imagined urinary frequency is probably due to an uptick in fluid intake but can't shake the feeling that I know is wrong. The only question is, how long would it be after implantation bleeding can a BFP show? Well, not the only question...I can Google my hear out, but can implantation bleeding truly show as AF-like? Grasping at straws. May POAS tomorrow. Think I'm going crazy, really. Otherwise, in (yet again) for April.

Good luck to everyone this month.

I am 24 and this is my 9th month TTC. No known problems between the two of us. Since I have a physical fitness test this month with the Army I am going to try and not think too hard about getting pregnant. I usually check my cervical mucous, position, feeling, temperature and use opk's. Everyone tells me it's stress so this month I am not checking anything! haha. We will see how it goes.

I'm turning 37 in May, Mariel, and I know my doctor has already told me that if we aren't pregnant in 6 months, to come back and see him. My insurance doesn't pay for anything fertility related, so you are really lucky! I think our next steps will be to test my dh, who is 29, and to make sure my hormones are good.

I'm glad you were able to convince your dh to go to the doctor with you. I pray that all turns out well for you guys, whenever you begin.

We have been TTC for years now, I am already 37 and it was really hard to convince my DH that we had go to the doctor. His sperm is not 100% and I have problems with uterine fibroid. According to my doctor my condition should not be a problem and that we can start with our first IVF. The insurance company has already approved it and I don't know what to expect or what to do or how to beginn or even what to think. I am so afraid, I haven't called the clinic.yet. I don't know if we can start now in April or wait til May...

Looks like I'll be back in the game for April. I'm not yet sure how I feel about that. After our second miscarriage, we decided to wait for 6 months and then see where we are. We've been talking the last few weeks and finally decided today that we would try again this next cycle. We've tentatively decided that this next pregnancy is our last shot. If I have another miscarriage, I just don't think I could try again.

It is hard to believe that we are now at the year mark of trying to have a baby.
