So here I am beginning the 2 week wait after MC the last 2 cycles. Lets hope it's 3rd time lucky for me! Anyone else about to start the count down ?

happylass Mon 29-Oct-12 21:45:53

So sorry to hear about the MCs babyjames. I too am just beginning the dreaded 2ww. OVd yesterday. TTC#1 and on cycle 2. Here's hoping for a fast and fruitful fortnight for us both!

Thanks happy it's been a really tough time. Really hope it's good news for us both this time round.

Hi Ladies, hope you don't mind me joining in. I think I'm about 4-5dpo. I had a positive OPK last Wednesday and felt pains on my left side on Friday. Only on cycle 3, so still not sure of the signs and can't pinpoint ov exactly yet.

Really want it to happen this month, TTC#1 and if it happens this month it will be due on my 30th. I know its still early days tho. This TTW is killing me already.

Fingers Crossed for us all. xx

Hi there Baker Bit fed up of living in 2 week blocks! I hate hate hate this waiting bit!

happylass Tue 30-Oct-12 19:10:53

Welcome baker <waves>
Does anyone know if the 2ww is exactly that - just 14 days??
Didn't have any periods whilst I was on the pill but before that my cycle varied from 25-28 days. Only had one proper cycle since stopping the pill and that was 27 days. If I OVd on cd 11 this time does that mean AF is due 14 days later on cd25? Or can I expect it on cd27 like last month? confused

I'm on it-again! Hate hate hate it! TTC #2, after 3 mc sad Please let this be my month!

whiterose2011 Tue 30-Oct-12 20:51:36

Good luck to you all. This will be me next month (just got AF after first mc) so will keep my fingers crossed for everyone. smile

babyjamesblackberrycrumble Tue 30-Oct-12 21:42:34

Hi Gnomes and Rose so sorry for your losses. MC is so terrible and sad sad I have not had a proper period for ages as got pregnant and MC last 2 cycles. My scan was clear and knowone said wait so we didn't. Not sure I would cope with another loss.
Happy I think most peoples lutual phase is about 12 - 14 days. I never get a positive test before 11 / 12 days past ovulation and I've done a fair few tests these last few months!
Think I need some distracting during the countdown!

Hi babyjames and white rose-yes it's awful sad so sorry to hear about your losses too. Fingers crossed we will all get there in the end smile I am desperately trying not to symptom spot but it's very hard.

I think my LP is 16 days happy

Thanks all. So is the number of dpo more important than the number of days before AF is due for getting an accurate POAS result? Don't think I'll be able to wait until AF is actually late! When is everyone else POAS?

LauraSmurf Wed 31-Oct-12 07:47:03

Can I join in? My DH and I are TTC %232. This is our first cycle (in earnest anyway). It took us 2 years to conceive our DD. we were beginning preliminary IVF work and everything.

I'd forgotten (or purposefully blocked out) the hideous anxiety of the 2ww.

Fingers crossed, touch wood, god willing for all of us!

RaspberrysAndIcecream Wed 31-Oct-12 08:11:37

Morning ladies, please can I join u!!

I ov later this month so not to sure when af is due, day 27 of cycle, cycle us usually 32 ish days long so who knows. I don't think it's worked this cycle, I've been ill & I'm on antibiotics for a chest infection. If I can hold off then I won't poas until next weekend, but I doubt that's gonna happen!! I'll probably do it this weekend!! Lol!! grin
hope the wait goes quickly for u & there's a BFP at the end of it for u!!! grin

Hi ladies. I'm joining you on the 2ww. I need a bit of a slap am symptom spotting!
I know I shouldn't but 5 dpo am knackered and super hormonal! Crying one minute and fine the next. How early is too early to test? <eyes test hopefully>

Come on in echo the water is lovely.

I try not to symptom spot, I have IBS so gurgle down there all the time. but I have been feeling particularly bloated the past two days.

Damn, I hate the wait!

EchoDragon Wed 31-Oct-12 15:28:32

Ha I know what you mean baker am queen spotter! Only 10 more days for me sigh.

EchoDragon Wed 31-Oct-12 15:30:20

Gah autocorrect meant symptom.

babyjamesblackberrycrumble Wed 31-Oct-12 18:49:35

Hi everyone, waves to all.
Sorry for your loss whiterose
Well I'm not sure the exact date I hopefully ovulated but had a positive OPK last Thursday pm and its usually over the next few days. Trying to work out when to test. I'd like to wait until AF late but I know no chance of that! Should we do a list of testing dates?

happylass Wed 31-Oct-12 20:30:08

Hello all. Team 2ww seems to be growing by the hour! Not told anyone in RL that we are trying so it's really nice to have someone to chat to things about. DP is a typical bloke and completely clueless about all things TTC related!
A list is a great idea baby. Can I start? Feel free to copy, add and paste!

Happylass TTC #1, cycle 2 POAS around 12th November

Happylass TTC #1, cycle 2 POAS around 12th November
BabyJames TTC #2, Cycle 8 (2 MC) POAS around 12th November

BraveLilBear Thu 01-Nov-12 11:33:52

Hello! I'm in the 2WW too (just about - am in a WTF cycle after early mc last month), may I please join the waiting room?

I'm TTC #1, will be POAS around Nov 15th. Last time was all pensive and excited and patiently waiting to test (waited til one day post AF!). Now I feel totally different and impatient and a bit scared of both results even though I really really want a BFP.

It's a crazy, crazy place TTC.

Let the symptom spotting commence! wink

Happylass TTC #1, cycle 2 POAS around 12th November
BabyJames TTC #2, Cycle 8 (2 MC) POAS around 12th November
BakerBaker TTC #1 Cycle 3 POAS 11th November.

Probably a silly question but can DTD disturb implantation?

babyjamesblackberrycrumble Thu 01-Nov-12 18:09:20

Hi there Bear so sorry for your loss. I knoe just what an emotional roller coaster it is after my BFP last 2 cycles followed my 2 MC. I just trying to think that BFP is one step closer to where I want to be! Very emotional journey!
Baker I have really no idea but would like to think not. Hope someone my be more knowledgeable than me!
