We have been TTC for a couple of months but this is the first month that it might have happened. I came off the pill and have had 2 really long cycles - 43 and 53 days. This cycle seems long too but temp charting and OPK shows ovulation on CD31. This is the first time fertility friend has shown bold red crosshairs for ovulation (dotted lines the last cycles). So I'm on CD35 now and my temperatures are still up. I'm feeling positive that ovulation just might have happened! We BD on CD31 so hopefully things will have worked out. Testing on Sat 22nd unless AF makes an unwelcome appearance! Anyone else testing around then? It will be a long 10 days!

Fingers crossed sparkle.
My cycle is 27 days, so hoping to try again this month! DP has a low sex drive so I shall be using all my female tricks to entice him!

I'm on my next TWW now. FF says I ovulated on CD22 and it's now CD25. I got a positive OPK and we BD around the right time I think. Still not sure if things are actually working properly but this cycle seems to be heading for a cycle of 35 days so it's all heading in the right direction at least.

Sorry to hear that Longo sad

I think they are a estimate, you'd need to chart or monitor cycle.
I got AF today so feeling rather sad and sorry for myself sad

Hi Ladies, hope you don't mind me joining you! I'm on my first two week wait. Although I think I missed my ov day because we wanted to wait till we got back from holiday I still can't help getting hopeful!
Has anyone else found that they get different ov dates with different calculators? Some say we would have just missed it, some say I would have been ov.

AF is due today, tummy ache though so just waiting now sad

sparkle9 Tue 09-Jul-13 01:05:58

Any update?

5 days late and still no BFP sad

I'm on my two week wait, fingers crossed! Good luck to all.

Thank you pasta. I'm now CD34. I wish it would just come and get it over with! I really hope this isn't going to be the norm! I'm sure I ov-ed around 16 days, then 10 days later got cramps that went. AF should have come after another week (Sunday). I expected to find it had defo come this morning, but now my cramps have gone again! Just tummy tender to press. Maybe it'll take a while to settle down, especially since I've been on steroids earlier this month. I think my cycles pre-pill were always a few days long, its just last month (first post-pill) it arrived quite nicely on time without too much of a fanfare!

Thank you!

pink when I came off pill with my first my cycles went to 33 days and stayed that way. I hope it's just a delayed BFP for you though. Good luck.

That's great news pasta!!

Keep at it sparkle, like he says its early days. Try to enjoy all the extra fun!

I'm still waiting for AF- I'm sure its on its way but now 2 days late, though this is my first real cycle since stopping pill so maybe i have long cycles after all? I've also been poorly and on meds this month so maybe that's messed things up. I have cramps and a scrapy feeling in my tummy for days. Normally I have a few strong cramps then come on. Another bfn this morning though so not looking promising sad

Pasta, that is great!!! :-)

Well. It's not my first 2ww as I've been trying since April, but I am on my 2ww. xxx

PastaBeeandCheese Mon 24-Jun-13 17:37:20

He is right but I do know how you feel.

I have a very unexpected BFP! Thought AF started on Friday but it stopped completely by Saturday. Have had two faint BFPs since then!

sparkle9 Mon 24-Jun-13 17:13:04

Fingers crossed for you!

I am now onto my next cycle. This AF was longer than the others since coming off the pill so my little hope is that this is my body getting back to normal. This AF was the length that they used to be before I took the pill. I had been on the pill for 10 years though so I'm not sure how relevant that is now!

I'll have to BD every two days. I don't think DP will like it if he knows it's mainly to conceive IYSWIM so I won't mention TTC too much at home. He knows I was disappointed this month though. He's told me not to stress and it's early days. I know he's right but still....

Not bfp so far but no AF today either, but think I might be just wishful thinking as got a few cramps now sad

sparkle9 Sun 23-Jun-13 09:25:20

So did anyone get their BFP this weekend?

My AF has gone so I'm back to having my fingers crossed for this new cycle.

PastaBeeandCheese Sat 22-Jun-13 17:35:59

Jen, I think you'd need a First Response Early Response at this point. A cheap test probably isn't sensitive enough. Fingers crossed for you.

Could any one help me my af is due tomorrow and I have had cramps about 8 days ago been soooo hormonal for about 7 days and now I have a bit of cm and a headache witch is not like me. Usually I only get hormonal 2days before af and I get bloated but that it. Some one said I can test now but to use a good brand of test but I only got a cheap brand and don't know wether I should just wait a few days or what? Very confused by all this. As been not preventing but not try for 12 months so this is first month of keeping track ofv l everything. Good luck to you all! X

Good luck to those testing this weekend!! xxx

I thought I was further into the 2 wk wait but temp this morning and I'm on day 3po apparently soo I'll keep waiting

Caved in and tested (AF due Sunday). BFN sad really felt it would be positive- had a really strange metallic taste in my mouth. Not much else though. Guess ill test again on Sunday if no sign of AF.....

PastaBeeandCheese Fri 21-Jun-13 06:16:17

AF due today and no sign it is going to arrive so I caved and tested......

BFN hmm

sparkle9 Thu 20-Jun-13 21:56:23

Definitely AF for me. On the plus side it's decidedly different from my other bleeds since coming off the pill so I think this could be my first real AF since stopping the pill. I'm going to temp this next cycle and go to the GP if it is still really long.

Fingers crossed for everyone else who is still testing this weekend. X
