Hi guys, sorry about my long silence When I last checked this forum, you were at page 192, so I have obviously not read all the posts I missed!
We are still TTC but this is only our 2nd cycle. We're still at the beginning! My biggest "job" this time around is trying to get my 11 month old to sleep through the night. If/when that happens on a regular basis, I will feel a lot more like doing the baby dance when the time is right! When he doesn't sleep through and is very needy (like all of last week), his chances of having a sibling are much reduced since I end up sleeping half the night in his room rather than with DH. Maybe he has it all planned out that way. !!! Last night he slept from 8:30pm or so until 5:30am so there may be a light at the end of this tunnel!
@alzora, I read about your weekend with your sisters. It's so hard to be happy for others when you're sad for yourself. I hear your pain. Sending you a hug and baby dust to use for the next 'round.
@maggiefromcanada hopefully you will have good news on Tuesday and either Google is right or there was something weird going on with your test kit (what, I have no idea... but you know, weird things happen sometimes!)
I hope there's lots more good news for all of us this roundMommy to John Alexander & 3 furbabies; Maggie the dog, Rex & Bella the wannabe lions

Maggie, that is really weird and incredibly frustrating! I'm looking forward to hearing what your doctor has to say.
I'm hanging out at 7 DPO. Would really like to exercise today; it's a gorgeous day here, last Sunday of summer! I really want to go on a ten mile bike ride. But after Loveday mentioned that some say excessive exercise is counter indicate for normal weight women TTC, (and I found studies indicating the same) I've been cutting back-had been cycling about 10 miles a day to-from work, which really makes even the crappiest work day fun, even though it's very vigorous. But I am entering the days of possible implantation and don't want to mess that up! But it's so beautiful out! Indecision over here.
Here's a link to an article citing the research: http://health.usnews.com/health-news...his-may-be-why
Now I guess a question is whether 10 miles of biking is 'extreme' or 'moderate.' It certainly isn't 'leisurely' for me.

@Alzora No one else has been sick. The symptoms were still definitely there. This morning I upped my essential oils that I take for hormone imbalance to hopefully get things back where they go. There is a stomach virus going around, but I have been nauseous for over a week...I threw up a few days ago, and that's it. The rest has been a nagging nausea.
Here's something weird. I have NO signs of AF showing up. No spotting since yesterday morning (I spotted every day for 3 days but only in the morning and not enough to wear anything). I have no cramps. I'm EXHAUSTED, but I am working a lot right now. I still have that freaking annoying pennies taste. Something is definitely off hormone-wise. It's just frustratingmamacravings.com

Maggie, that is so odd about your BFNs and long LP. I think you have a copy of Taking Charge of Your Fertility so you might have already seen this. I was just going through it this evening, and you might find the section in Appendix A about 18 or more high temperatures helpful (page 326 in the revised edition). In case it's not handy, this is an excerpt:
"If you have 18 or more consecutive high temperatures above the coverline (drawn 1/10 of a degree above the highest of the six last days before the thermal shift) with no sign of a period, it is almost always an indication of pregnancy."
"Another possible reason for 18 high temperatures is an ovarian cyst, either from LUFS [Luteinized Unruptured Follicle Syndrome - even if you have all the classic signs of ovulation, it is possible you may not actually be releasing an egg] or a corpus luteum cyst [I wonder if it could be a cyst from PCOS too??]. In both cases the corpus luteum may continue to live beyond the normal 12 to 16 days - even when the woman isn't pregnant. If this should happen, the temperature would continue to remain high due to the progesterone that is still being emitted from the persistent corpus luteum. Of course, if the progesterone doesn't drop, the uterine lining is not shed during menstruation... A pregnancy test combined with a manual exam and ultrasound of the uterus may be warranted to rule out an ovarian cyst. If it turns out that you do have one, the good news is that they usually dissipate on their own."
I hope your doctor is able to help you out this week!
