Be sure to go by and thank your Secret Pal for their love this month! I'm currently working on matching up pals for April's fun and I'll be sending that out in the next couple of days. We have increased our number of participants this time from 13 for March to 24 for April! I'm excited about that and I hope we'll all have a great time.


Just to update you a bit on where I'm at with my cycle now, I tested on Thursday and got a BFN. Spotted all day Thursday. Woke Friday to a very slight temp decline and some spotting Friday morning. As Friday progressed, spotting stopped entirely. Had some cramping and a serious backache. Woke this morning to a greater temp decline (but still well above my coverline), another BFN and some more spotting. Another serious backache as well. Went back to sleep for 2 hours and when I awoke, spotting had stopped completely, although my back is still hurting terribly badly. That's where I am now - 12 DPO with stop and start spotting, a serious backache, a bit of a temp drop and still no AF. My LP is usually 11 or 12 days, so if she's coming, she's due anytime now. I'm hoping she stays away, but I'm not very optimistic. Surely if I were pregnant I'd be getting a BFP by now, right?

Stay tuned to this blog for our next installment of the Days of Our Cycle!

Hopefully the spotting was just implantation bleeding - thinking of you, and hoping AF stays away! Hugs!

Hey sweetie sorry you are in limbo still and getting those annoying BFN's but I did get 2 before my BFP's this time and that was testing on the day my period was due, i'd obviously ov'd a little later and so the levels weren't strong enough until a few days later x

Sorry for all the spotting and bfn's. That totally sucks. I hope it's just too early.

Your Secret Pals idea is awesome! I'll have to jump on the bandwagon next time.

Hoping AF stayed away...
