Hello all!! I just love these threads so I wanted to start another to pass the time and give me something to look at while at work all night.

I am 6dpi/dpo and about an hour ago, I had dull cramping pain in my lower right abdomen this isn't as strong now, but is still lingering. I have had a headache for the last 2 days but I think that is all the symptoms that I have had. But I am trying not to get my hopes up tho I am not sure it is working. :)

Good luck ladies!! Baby Dust!!

    Good luck stash! Are you feeling better? If memory serves me right I remember reading you were sick?

    I am so glad you decided to try this cycle. Hopefully in another week you will be announcing your much awaited BFP! I just messaged you on FB btw.

    I have had these exact same symptoms. cramping and headaches. I caved, and did a HPT yesterday at 9dpi. BFN. Sooooo....I realize it's too early to tell. Just had very high hopes yesterday....

    I'm one day behind you, and for the first time since TTC for baby #2, the TWW is draggggging for me. I am obsessing over every little detail of insemination timing, follie sizes, could we have twin because there were two mature follies, will either of them be fertilized? I wish it would hurry up and pass because it's driving me nuts! Good luck to everyone in the TWW, and baby dust to all.

    We are still using my OB, he prescribed 50mg of clomid and monitored, plus we did a trigger. We IUI'd at home ourselves as well. My first appt with the RE is the 17th. I will be 11dpo then so hopefully they can do a blood test to see if I'm pregnant and even need to be there. Although it could still be too early to tell. I'm not sure what the RE is going to suggest but I don't want to waste anymore time. I want to try one more cycle with clomid and then start saving for IVF. With income taxes I think we will be able to start immediately, I'm just hoping I can emotionally withstand it.

    Doing IUIs at home are very beneficial. You're able to get the exact timing you want, our OBs office is only open M-F 8-6, and then Saturdays 8-12. Also, my partner is more involved in the baby making process when she does the procedure. Our son would not be here today if it wasn't for her, she did the IUI. It is more intimate that way.

    I was sick, but am feeling much better. I still have a headache and the dull cramping is more like a heavy feelingor something. So who knows. Plus, I have been exercising so my symptoms could be from that.

    I'm 3 dpo today and the wait is driving me crazy. Last month I over analyzed every symptom during the TWW. I'm going to try not to assume anything this month.

    This is so exciting!!! Having the same symtpoms as you is AWESOME!! And Congrats again on your BFP!

    I still have that mild dull cramp in my right abd that is like pressure or a full felling now and again. Always the exact same spot. Headache still shows its self on and off. And now I am so tired I have had to take a nap the last 2 days. And now I have heartburn and gas all the time. But... My bbs are swelling like AF is coming except they don't hurt like they normally do. And they are more swollen then usual. I am gaining my water weight like AF is coming too. So I just don't know. Everything is a sign of BFP and AF. I don't know how much longer I can wait. If I do have a 'little' in there, then implantation took place roughly 6dpi/dpo, which would mean 9-10dpi/dpo could show a positive. But I don't know if I want to see a BFN. I was going to wait till I was 14dpi/dpo but I don't think I can hold out that long...

    Good luck with your cycle. Twins could be fun, but I would prefer one at a time lol!

    I am trying really hard not to obsess and it works for the most part since I am always on the move. But when i come to work and can hang out on here, it is hard not to think about it. Tho the first half of the TWW is over and I don't know how it happened so fast. When are you going to test? I am not sure when I should. I am 9dpi/dpo on Sun. So I may test Wed, but probably Fri so my KD can be with me. He is super excited. :D

    Good luck not over analyzing every little thing. It is so hard to do. Baby dust to you and all the ladies in the TWW!

    Yes, the cramping and headaches were definite pregnancy signs! I've also had a little pink tinged spotting that happened on the same day I got the faint bfp. This is sounding good for you!

    I truly hope so! And now I am getting slightly congested!! Hope it is a good sign instead of a cold.

    8dpo here and I'm still obsessing. I have this eery feeling and I KNOW I'm pregnant. It could just be false hope but I have never felt so sure. And, I have this weird feeling it's a girl. I never KNEW I was pregnant last time and I never KNEW he was a boy before our anatomy scan. I'm really hoping to get a BFP tomorrow or the next few days following. I tested this morning, still way early, and it was a negative.

    The tww is absolutely horrible! I'm so anxious. I'm 9dpi an I got a bfn because I couldn't wait to test anymore. I've been having crazy symptoms though. My boobs are swollen and aching like crazy (which never happens). I have lower abdominal cramps. Also I can't get enough cheeseburgers!! I haven't had a cheeseburger in over a year.
    Good luck to everyone else in the tww! Af is scheduled for next Sunday ad I have my fingers crossed!

    I am 9dpi and I am back and forth about knowing I am PG. I really feel that I am, but I don't want to be devestated either. I am trhing to hold off on testing but I can feel my POAS addiction kicking in. Lol! So we'll see. I know I posted that this TWW was going slow, but I am shocked at how far I am. When should I test ladies? I have wondfos and only two clear blue easy digitals...
