Two week wait...

Hello all!

I've been lurking for a few weeks since beginning ttc recently, so thought it was time I posted something!

I think I ovulated yesterday (and dtd) so will now have my fingers crossed until 7th feb when AF if due. Anyone want to keep me company?! I'm ready to obsessively symptom spot and look out for implantation pain!

As background, we've been careful on and off since November, but are active ttc this month. Trying to be patient knowing this could take ages yet! I already have a nearly 13 yo ds from a previous relationship.

Good luck to us all xx

My last AF started 7th jan and I'm a 28 day cycle, and my app tells me I was due on today.

Sounds like you're not late yet Wardy!

Oh btw guys, I think I have answered my own question after conducting sme research. I think my new super senstive OPKs detect LH too low (25 miu), most OPKs detect the surge at 30 - 40 miu...hence the reason why my test is positive! Grrrr

Wardy I would just check the detection level of any brand. I have used First Response and ClearBlue but seeing as I am yet to have +ive I can't really back up my advice on PG tests!

I've been calculating it wrong this whole time sad

AnythingNotEverything What app do you use??

It's called My Cycles - free on App Store and the pic is a pink Chrysanthemum.

Works for me - you can track symptoms and it averages out your cycles and tells you when your fertile time is likely to be. It's not fool proof, but my cycles are pretty stray so it's great for me.

Brilliant, thanks Anything, I shall be downloading that as soon a my iPhone is back up and running! Managed to accidentally (I swear!) throw it into the fireplace! lol

Does anyone else find they actually seem to make their 2ww longer just by hoping they don't get af?

Wardy17 Thu 07-Feb-13 13:49:35

Yes!!! I've made the wait do much worse for myself by obsessing!!

Tinyflutterby Thu 07-Feb-13 13:53:25

Sometimes I wish there was a little window that you could look in and say 'ah, so I'm ovulating' or 'oh, so that pain is implantation'... (sorry, bit weird, but would make things so much easier and none of this hanging around obsessing about what every imaginary symptom is!)

Wardy17 Thu 07-Feb-13 13:55:23

I know!! And this the only place to vent coz everyone else would think I was crazy!!

mrsLAQ Thu 07-Feb-13 17:00:54

A window would be great! I always thought I would be quite relaxed about ttc, how wrong I was...

babyrose Thu 07-Feb-13 17:18:31

How's it going Mrslaq? Having anymore symptoms?

mrsLAQ Thu 07-Feb-13 17:29:41

The only new one is that I burst into tears today, not sure that's a pg symptom though! Cramping seemed to ease off around lunchtime today. The more I over think it, the more I have convinced myself that I have just missed ovulation sad

I have been drinking plenty of (decaf) brew to try and cheer myself up, feel free to tell me to snap out of it! I think I'm going slightly doo-lally...

How about you? Any new symptoms?

babyrose Thu 07-Feb-13 17:44:28

I'm getting that feeling aswell missing ovulation but would the crampy/pressure feeling go on for 3 nites makes me wonder.sore boobs for the last two days but more noticeable today. And (sorry for this) snot like discharge.
Ive read people getting hormonal whilst pregnant, so it sounds hopeful!

mrsLAQ Thu 07-Feb-13 18:15:09

Ahhh it worked, you have restored my hopes!

Spooky how similar our symptoms sound, although my boobs aren't doing anything unusual. I know exactly what you mean by "snot like", it's definitely not snot like in an infected sense but I had wondered what it was all about!

I have to go to a drinks thing on Saturday, was wondering about caving and having one as I was being a pessimistic grump bag, but perhaps I'll hold off in hope.

When are you testing? I was thinking about next Friday as that's the theoretical day my af is due and I'm scared of doing it too soon for a BFN!

babyrose Thu 07-Feb-13 18:37:22

U could always pretend to drink! Then nobody would suspect anything.

I'm not sure about testing, I think I might try to hold off as long as I can( im sure I will cave in sooner tho!

Its heart breaking getting that bfn.

QueenofClean Thu 07-Feb-13 18:48:28

Hey Ladies

I'm home from a long day at work. My girls are in bed so just having a hot bath before some dinner and relaxing and enjoying the last few hours of my twenties!

I have no symptoms tbh although do feel my boob are bigger it's all in my head

Like MrsLaq AF due next Friday so just waiting to see tbh.

Wardy17 Thu 07-Feb-13 20:00:28

AF due tomorrow tested this eve BFN!!!

mrsLAQ Thu 07-Feb-13 23:41:59

Ahhh happy birthday queen! Sorry about the bfn wardy,fx afraid will stay away and you might get a different result in a few days.

mrsLAQ Thu 07-Feb-13 23:42:26

QueenofClean Fri 08-Feb-13 05:23:48

Thanks MrsLaq.

Today it's my birthday and I'm 29+1 grin

No symptoms here. I will be really shocked and thrilled if we managed to get upduffed this month considering we had the bug the week I was ov.

LoveLaughingLots Fri 08-Feb-13 06:35:10

Happy Birthday Queen of Clean!! All the best for the coming year!

* raises glass of champagne * Oooh champagne....

Apprx 4/5DPO today, defo feeling more pain. So much so that We couldn't BD...is that normal? We BD throughout the cycle not just during O, it takes my mind off things (well, sorta!)

How is everyone doing today? Symptoms? More BFPs?! Fx...

QueenofClean Fri 08-Feb-13 08:07:55

LLL thanks I think we are all entitled to a large small glass of champers wink

LoveLaughingLots Fri 08-Feb-13 09:07:15

Queen of Clean I feel guilty if I drink! Like I've given up or something...I dunno...I'll think about it, I would KILL a glass of champagne though! Hope you have a good day!

Wardy try and stay positive! A near impossible feat, I know! But I find focussing on what I want makes me feel better. If focussing on a BFP doesn't feel too good because you're just thinking about not having one yet, then just think about something else that makes you feel good!! Thinking of you...

Is anyone testing around Valentines Day?? How cool (and cheesy! lol) would that be? I think Ariel said she was...

My DP kindly reminded me this morning that I will be nearing the date AF is usually here...I didn't think he paid much attention tbf! lol

Have a good day girls.
