Thanks LatieK really sorry that AF showed up tho. What a witch. But, true, least you can set your clock by her. Fx for next cycle - enjoy some wine in the meantime wink

LatieK Wed 21-Nov-12 13:25:27

Massive congrats Brave - so happy for you. Fx it's a sticky one smile

'Fraid AF showed up bang on schedule at 12 dpo sad I s'pose one positive thing is that my cycles are regular??

Thanks for asking after me and sorry I dropped off the thread. I'm new to MN and clearly don't know what I'm doing as I thought the thread had disappeared...

On to cycle 7. Whoop.

Hello to cherry and katerina and everyone else <waves>

Just a quick one to say good luck to everyone in the 2ww... I thought I was out of the game at 10dpo, but actually, I wasn't. Got a BFP this morning at 17dpo!

My totally normal AF symptoms turned out to be a little bean-ette instead. So you're never out til you're out I guess! Fx it sticks <eek>

Good luck fellow 2wwers!

I'm on the TTC train now too. Am currently in the waiting period. First month of trying so not sure what to expect yet and trying to not get hopes up as so early days. Not really sure I'm feeling any different. I'm really thirsty and a bit crampy but nothing I wouldn't have noticed if we weren't trying. Another week of waiting yet for me.

Cherrycherry Mon 19-Nov-12 20:51:43

Hi ladies
Please can I join you???

Sorry to all of you for your losses and sorry some of you had bfn but congrats on any bfp!

I'm probably a bit out of sync because I think I'm 2 dpo but can't be sure.
Am ttc #2 (DD is 3 next month), came off the pill in August, had a wtf cycle that month, then a 28 day cycle then had a bfp very quickly followed by heavy bleeding and bfn on what would have been 5 wks so chemical pregnancy and that was the end of October. Stopped bleeding about 10 days ago and am pretty certain that I ov'd over the weekend. Don't even really know if I'm on 2ww or if af is going to come at any time! I guess I'll test around 30th if nothing happened by then. I'm addicted to POAS though so fx I can wait that long!

Am desperately trying to keep my mind occupied until either af or bfp!

we have another long six days before testing!! trying to take my mind off things but everywhere i go its babies!! oh and of course i was very open about having ivf as i'm not ashamed of it but the only prob now is everyone who knows is asking 'any news yet' so i'm slightly regretting telling some people xx

BraveLilBear Mon 19-Nov-12 12:32:08

Hi Blonde good luck for your 2ww - it's agony at the best of times, must be torture on IVF. Fx for you!

happylass Sun 18-Nov-12 22:43:02

Welcome blonde. Good luck for the 2ww. How long til you can POAS?

blondebaby111 Sun 18-Nov-12 12:19:47

Can i join the waiting room?? Horrible nasty 2ww after 1st round of ivf. My neres can't stand it any longer sad

setayharas Fri 16-Nov-12 16:30:45

ohh baker im sorry!maybe christmas is your time!

7dpo now and back ache is still there aswell as my calfs killing me and generally feel like some coming down with flu or something. iv shouted at atleast 50% of my customers today lol and cried in the staff toilets when i got another well early i know bfn.
think af is going to be early as my usual teary horrible mood swings are here already aswell as the usual sore boobs.

ohhh well the waiting game continues

happylass Fri 16-Nov-12 16:02:44

Sorry to hear that baker sad I'm on cd 5, so another week before the dreaded 2ww begins again. Im kind of enjoying this time of the month because there's no OV or BFP to think about so can just relax! Come join me in hoping for a festive BFP. I'll next be POAS around 8/12.

As expected BFN.

BraveLilBear Thu 15-Nov-12 16:33:06

Good news setay smile

I'm holding out, but am convinced AF is packing her bags and getting ready to move in. Sore bbs (like normal AF), bloating (like normal AF), and last night was boiling hot all night (like normal AF).

Had promised myself I'd hold out til the weekend before caving and POAS, so if she visits before then I'll have at least saved myself some squidage. Trying to be positive though!

10dpo refuse to test early cos I had a chemical at 5+2 last time and wouldn't want to invite the same tragedy on myself again (doctors claim that women wouldn't know about chemical pregnancies if they didn't test early).

Who else?

setayharas Thu 15-Nov-12 14:46:19

back from the doctors! i dont have a kidney infection and i dont have a water infection. so iv either pulled a muscle in my back or iv got bad af pains or and the doctor kinda smirked and i really wanted to scream dont get my hopes up... i might be with child..

of corse im only 6dpo so theres no way of knowing but now im hating this 2ww even more.

hows everyone else holding out??

BraveLilBear Wed 14-Nov-12 17:11:40

Oh no setay darn those POAS voices in our heads! Probably wise to see docs - sure it's probably nowt but best not to mess with kidneys. Fx!

Baker that sounds intriguing! There's hope yet then wink Sorry about the car though sad

Do keep us posted!

Any joy yet LatieK? Anyone else POAS yet?

If I make it to the weekend without AF showing up, I'll be POAS with great confidence as have had on-off crampy twinges and v sore boobs. But as these are both normal pre-AF fodder for me, right now I'm not so confident! We shall see smile

Warning TMI coming up...

..AF lasted 4 days in the end, but never got red, was more brown/black and was a lot less than normal and tacky, used one tampon, realised I didn't need them, then 2 pantyliners in total. Normally I would use about 10-12 tampons during af.

My car broke and I spent all my money trying to fix it so can't test until Friday.

I don't think I'm pregnant, but I am still getting odd cramps, not like af cramps iyswim. Will test Friday just to rule it out.

Congrats to all BFP's grin

setayharas Wed 14-Nov-12 13:01:26

Soooo I gave in and poas. 6dpo so dunno what I was expecting happen. Now Im sat in a shopping centre surrounded by mums and babies sulking that I hit wasted £7 on a test.

Oh I'm off to the doctors tomorrow bear to see if it is my kidneys.

LatieK Tue 13-Nov-12 18:00:57

Thanks Brave. I'll blatantly be POAS every day until AF comes - I've got a cupboard full of internet cheapies. Don't know if they're a good or a bad thing - they're saving me money on expensive tests but it means I cave in at the slightest inkling!!!

Feeling a bit crampy this eve as if AF is just around the corner... Why oh why do pregnancy symptoms have to be the same as AF symptoms???

BraveLilBear Tue 13-Nov-12 15:30:18

Hi LatieK welcome to the strange world where people share things that no right thinking human would ever say to another, all in the name of staring down the 2ww grin

It ain't over til the witch swoops, so you might get more joy at the weekend (if you can last that long!)

setayharas ouch, that doesn't sound like fun. Could it be a kidney problem? Fx it is a crazy early pg symptom but take care just in case...

setayharas Tue 13-Nov-12 13:57:05

heyy everyone!! so im not 5dpo and today woke up with back ache kinda near where my kidneys should be. of corse my first thoughts was thats its another symptom! dh is trying hes hardest to keep me ane and explain to me that i probably slept funny.
ohhh well 10 days until af is due.
good luck everyone. what a great xmas pressie a bfp would be for everyone

LatieK Tue 13-Nov-12 13:14:34

Hi ladies, hope you don't mind me joining?

I'm on cycle 6 TTC#1, 9dpo with an 11 day luteal phase, so I'm supposed to test on Friday I may have POAS this morning... BFN sad

I've been having all sorts of weird crampy, pokey feelings in my uterus this 2WW, but every month has been different since I came off the pill in April (after 13 years!) so I'm trying and failing not to read anything into it.

Hope you're all doing ok and thanks for sharing - it's so helpful to read posts from people in the same position as me.

BraveLilBear Tue 13-Nov-12 11:30:56

<waves at everyone>

Have been trying to post here for the last two days but every time I do, Mumsnet dies dramatically - but only when on this thread? Bizarre!

Boo to AF victims. Any news yet Baker I got a BFP 2 days after IB last time out, but I guess it could be up to 5 days if HCG only starts after implantation and doubles every day. Could take up to 5 days to reach 10, IYSWIM?

Welcome setay and foxy

I'm now 9dpo and having boob twinges. But can't tell if it's pre-AF or what.

happylass Tue 13-Nov-12 09:10:28

Welcome setay. Yes you will drive yourself mad with the symptom spotting during the 2ww I'm afraid! The trouble is most pregnancy symptoms are identical to AF symptoms so its easy to convince yourself. It doesn't seem like it at the time but the 2ww does go fairly quickly. Good luck!
