So it's my first cycle of ttc number 3. I'm only 2dpo but I'm so, so impatient! grin

Anyone else entering the 2ww madness? X

I had my 5 day blastocyst implant 3 days ago and still have another 8 days until my blood test at the Hospital......only 3 days in and I am going crazy! Every little thing I feel makes me paranoid! Slight twinges like very mild cramping has been happening....not sure whether this is the enlarging of the uterus to make room for the Baby to grow or I am getting my period. This is torture!

Oops pressed send by accident, on my iPhone! Was going to say that my cycle was also 3 days shorter than I'd expected it would be. So looking forward to trying again this month hopefully with a better idea of when to try. My OH has been really stressed out at work, and really tired so trying to encourage him to regularly dtd is a bit tricky, but he's going to have to buck his ideas up this month ;) good luck xxx

That sounds like a good plan of action Penguin, all of those things can only help, and at least you also feel like you're actively doing what you can to help things along.

I've bought a BBT thermometer today and an opk so will start tracking myself properly this cycle. We only dtd 3 times last cycle on what I assumed would be my most fertile days, was using fertility friend on my phone and going by the fact my cycle is usually 29 or 30 days. This time round I initially thought I'd ovulated around day 14 as had some ov pain and ewcm, but then on day 19 I had ov pain again, a lot worse and more ewcm so very confusing,

Penguinttc Sun 26-Jan-14 17:23:34

Oh no, are you tracking? I'm ok... Taken a few days out of the Ttc page to get over it and now we are preparing for round two.
Sorry you got your af! X
We have decided to up our game, I know it's only cycle two but ...
I'm going to exercise abit more to get my blood flowing. Taking more vitamins and getting dp on them too. He is going to look after his balls (temp wise) and I am going to temp, check for ov and we are going to Dtd abit longer into my cycle. Last time I got a pos ov stick and we had sex once because we were trying the trying for a girl thing and having sex so the girl sperm would get there before I oved. But after the chemical pregnancy/ early loss we are just going to go for it, and do it over my full fertile time.

So sorry penguin sad hope you are doing ok.

AF came for me today 2 days early, 27 day cycle instead of usual 30 days and looking back have a feeling I ovulated on day 20.

So sorry Penguin x

sebsmummy1 Fri 24-Jan-14 12:02:15

Thinking of you, so sorry xxx

Penguinttc Fri 24-Jan-14 11:57:09

Still bleeding, very heavy. Not like my usual af, and the cramps are very bad. It's more like when I miscarried at 6 weeks. I've not tested and I don't think I will unless it's longer than a week, the bleeding. My boobs are still tingling and I've had sickness too today, strange since I only ovd on the 8th or there abouts... I've never bled this heavy and gone to term, so we are just going to come to terms with it today, and then try again when possible.
Thanks you two xxx

Lottystar Fri 24-Jan-14 10:01:55

Sorry Penguin, perhaps you should contact your GP or EPU for advice? Some ladies do bleed early on and go on to have a healthy pregnancy. It would be too early for a scan yet but they may check your HCG levels. Sending you lots of unMumsNet hugs xx

sebsmummy1 Fri 24-Jan-14 09:41:20

Oh Penguin darling, is it like a full on period now or has it stopped? Maybe there is still hope? xxx

Penguinttc Fri 24-Jan-14 08:47:59

Previous post... 20th February? I meant September... Sorry, another dim moment from me.

Penguinttc Fri 24-Jan-14 08:46:45

Started having really bad crippling cramps last night, stood up and felt a gush.... Red blood. The cramps are awful, so I'm having the day off and spending it in bed. sad gutted. With 5 pos tests, I had had so much hope. Dp is saying don't worry as soon as the loss stops we can try again, at least there's hope ey.
Sorry to bring bad news so early.

Squeakybeaky Thu 23-Jan-14 21:00:27

So happy for you Penguin, really great news! I woke up to AF this morning. I'm ok about it though! I'm promising myself I won't test early next month x

Penguinttc Thu 23-Jan-14 15:15:47

From lmp it's 4th cot, but I'll probably be elective section like last time so two weeks before - so approx 20th February. But I'm hoping for vbac, if spd stays away.
What's yours sebsmummy? Have you moved over to pregnancy yet? I'll probably wait a while before joining in over there, just incase. Although I've had a lot of strong waves of nausea today, still no af and my titties are tingling loads! That's my tell tale sign, so I'm so pleased. Dp has already dragged me around the baby section in next, it's so cute seeing him so excited!

Lottystar Thu 23-Jan-14 11:45:11

Congrats Penguin!! smile

sebsmummy1 Thu 23-Jan-14 09:18:43

When is your EDD Penguin? Xx

Penguinttc Thu 23-Jan-14 09:14:59

Just done one more (my last- promise) and it's positive! Sainsburys with fmu. I decided to test because I was feeling queasy again.
Fingers crossed it sticks and stays the duration!
How u feeling squeaky?

Zermatt Thu 23-Jan-14 07:36:02

Sounds very promising and very exciting penguin! smile

Penguinttc Wed 22-Jan-14 23:43:50

Ok, so I was naughty... I went and brought two different types of tests... A blue one (sainsburys) and a new one in Lloyd's... Viola or something. Both have very faint lines! The viola is a lot stronger, but still faint. I'll try and get a pic in better light tomorrow!
I have two more, I'm going to wait until the weekend now and see what happens... And now af as of yet either smile

Lottystar Wed 22-Jan-14 18:21:57

Do another with your first pee tomorrow Penguin, sounds very promising. I've not had evap lines with First Response. The blue dye tests are the ones to watch for that.

Awr, pleased you told him MissMagpie, I'm sure you made him very happy.

I'm feeling super anxious today. Tired but other pregnancy symptoms are mild. After the mc in Oct I just can't enjoy or believe it yet confused

Squeakybeaky Wed 22-Jan-14 14:56:12

Sounds good to me penguin........congrats!

sebsmummy1 Wed 22-Jan-14 14:23:29

Penguin, I'm my experience, no!

Penguinttc Wed 22-Jan-14 14:06:37

Arghhhh I dug out the test from yesterday, the first response early test and there's a line pink line! Do this tests give evap lines?!?!?

Zermatt Wed 22-Jan-14 13:24:07

That's really good MissM, I couldn't have kept that all to myself either for that long, and good that you can now both talk about it. Bet he can't wait to get home to you smile

MissMagpie Wed 22-Jan-14 13:03:12

So I had to tell him! It was too big a secret to keep all to myself. He was very pleased and relieved that we actually do work after all, but as it's our first experience of this we are keeping our feet on the floor unless something goes wrong.

Now he keeps texting asking if I'm ok etc. He would much rather have known now than wait until Sunday so I did right in the end.
