Does anyone else feel like the two weeks after ovulation go on forever?! I read into every slight cramp or twinge hoping I'm pg but never am. Impatient doesn't even come close. Please tell me I'm not the only one?!

Choc- Sorry for the bfn. When is your period due? Reading through the thread I see you're 12 DPO, is that right? It still may be too early to test, so keep fingers crossed!
Big 'hello' to everyone. I'm 11 DPO today and also driving myself mad with every little twinge. Resisting testing until Sunday or Monday, can't bear to look at another Bfn! Xxx

Yes 12\13 dpo. Am cramping & got stabbing pains on left side, am at work so not much fun. I wasn't gonna test eaither, not sure why I bothered. Am going to the loo every 20 mins to check. Am insane! X

hi ladies can I pull up a chair and join you?
I'm cd23 but as last af turned up on cd35 my 2ww could be more like 3! had a bit of a tough 2012 so hoping the new year is a good omen for me, had a mmc in June then mc at 6weeks beginning of Nov. This will hopefully be DC3 for us, have 2DD, was a good girl got lots of alone time with hubby over xmas, couldn't really have done more! so really hoping this is a good month, but of course that thought seems to increase symptoms to spot smile

Thanks choc quick and doctor! Here come the details... I felt strong period pains 2 days before AF was due and was sure I was about to come on. Then the pains died down and I've just had occasional twinges ever since. I usually notice changes in my CM during my cycle, but it didn't change at all which was weird for me. Since the bfp, I've been feeling very sleepy and that's all really. Oh, and I've been peeing on the hour every hour for the last 2 days! No other symptoms.... yet!

Been to doctors today who confirmed the bfp (hurray!!). I should be 5 weeks and 3 days today, but doctor said its still very early days and suggested that I might be even earlier than that. So maybe I ovulated much later than I thought? Not sure. Having a scan in 2 weeks to date it more accurately and I get to see my little tiny peanut of a baby!! Can't wait!!!

Hang on in there everyone else, you'll soon be looking at your own little tiny peanut on a screen smile My best advice is to keep yourselves busy during the tww! Good luck all!

Oh Choc I'm so sorry thats horrible. Take care of yourself and have a big glass of wine, then onwards and upwards for next month! x

Got myAF this morning. Trying not to be too upset but had a bit of a cry. It is only our first month trying so trying to stay positive. Plus it's another month of saving towards more lovely baby clothes when the time comes.

AF was a week earlier than expected too (28 days rather than expected 35) so perpahs still not fully back to normal after coming off pill in Sept.

Here's hoping next month is more successful.
