Hey, on the 2ww and looking for some support! Just changed onto a 40 day cycle so this has been a long time coming, not that hopeful though as even though we used OPKs we only DTD a couple of times during high fertile time because hubby feels the pressure and can't always perform lol still be nice to have some support. I would call this cycle 2 of officially trying so still early days.

I'm in <waves>!
I came off the pill in Oct and have had some weird/irregular cycles so this is officially the 1st cycle of TTC rather than just seeing what happens. I haven't used opks yet so it really is a long shot this month, but here's hoping! AF could be due anytime from 25th to 30th.
When do you plan to poas bump assuming AF doesn't arrive? wishing you lots of luck and here to keep you company smile

I'm in the other thread too but think it's a bit further on than me grin

Think I'm 4-5 dpo, no symptoms.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought symptoms were only noticeable after (hopefully) implantation? I have a few ttc apps on my phone (pink pad being one) and some of the girls on there claim to have symptoms from 2dpo! Is this normal?

I started a 2ww thread this time last year.

I've just fed my 12.5 week old DD and will be popping her into her cot in a mo.

Good luck ladies ... You could be in my shoes next January!

Hello all- thank you for responding its so nice to have company :-) cakebaker, have your cycles settled down then? I came off pill in sept had two 28 day cycles then on Xmas day got a 40 day cycle so hence why I decided to start with OPK. Also means I really don't know when AF is due now, ovulated on CD21/22 so I am hoping if no BFP then at least I get AF sooner then last cycle so hopefully not before 27th jan.

Tap dancing - I have read far too many posts not to believe that you can get symptoms straight away, according to my mum she actually felt conception happen although I think that is a little far fetched lol if you are really in tune with your body u reckon you can but most of us are far too busy to notice things.

Anythingnoteverything - loving your post, it made me smile so much I really hope that is me next year I've never wanted anything more then this all my life :-)

I will be testing on cheapies at the end of next week probably, how about everyone else?

Hi guys! I posted on the other but had miscalculated my dates so I am also about 4-5 DPO on a cycle of 28-30days so my 2ww is underway.
It's our first cycle of TTC but I'm very excited!
I've become more aware of my usual cycle symptoms since being on here and TTC... Feeling cramps I didn't feel/notice before!
Wishing everyone luck!

cheshirem2b Thu 16-Jan-14 23:36:15

Cakebaker... I've got the tests ready but not going to test until at is due which is supposed to be on 28th. If it doesn't come I'll test but not doing an early to get my hopes crushed.

Bumpforme2014... I've been using OPK to calculate cycles and they spare great. I use digi because I find it a better reading for me. We used them properly this month and dtd at "high" and then every day until "peak" came and went so here's hoping!

Bumpforme2014 Fri 17-Jan-14 08:14:18

Cheshirem I will be surprised if you don't cave and test sooner haha you stand a good chance i
Think. I used digital as well but if don't get preggars this cycle I have purchased a fertility monitor. I wished we DTD more than we did, feel like I don't have much of a chance this time round :-(

cheshirem2b Fri 17-Jan-14 08:25:30

Bumpforme2014... Get dtd more! I thought, as bad as this sounds, I'd find dtd so frequently a bit of a chore but I'm enjoying myself and so is DH! Ask me again in a few months though! ;-)

I am happy too but hubby feels under pressure and can't perform! Didn't think we would have that problem, not sure there is much we can do about it other than try not to obsess over it. He really wants a baby and I think he is worrying about it too much bless him.

cheshirem2b Fri 17-Jan-14 10:03:34

Oh bless him! I'm sure if he relaxes and stop worrying (easier said than done I know) then things will be ok. So sweet to hear that your DH is so committed.

Bumpforme2014 Fri 17-Jan-14 12:46:49

Yes he is, took him 11 years to get broody but thanks to numerous friends and family having babies recently he finally got there !! He will soon get used to it I think, I'm trying to be patient which isn't easy for me lol

Cakebaker35 Fri 17-Jan-14 13:00:17

bump my cycle not back to normal yet, had 27, 25 then 34 day cycles so far! So this month is really a long shot and although possible I'd just be happy to get a normal-ish cycle under my beast. Very sweet about your DH, mine a little the same, partly due to tiredness and busy job he just struggles with all the planning to DTD! We were extremely lucky to conceive immediately with DD but he's realising this time won't be quite so straightforward as that was a total fluke! I think I am due roughly the same time as you so fingers crossed.

cheshire vey good idea not to test early, it just drives you bonkers in the end so definitely try to hold out.

Hello to everyone else playing the waiting game.

Cakebaker35 Fri 17-Jan-14 13:00:48

Beast?! Belt I meant - autocorrect gone mad!

Still no bloody symptoms here sad

How is everyone else?

newforest Fri 17-Jan-14 13:47:02

I'm due on 28th. I'm 5 dpo. I ovulated on day 12 and had a positive opk on day 10 and we dtd on days 10 and 12.

I have no symptoms I have to say, though last month I was feeling every twinge and hoping for the best! I won't be testing unless I am late.

claudeekishi Fri 17-Jan-14 14:11:38

Signing in - due on 26th or 27th. No symptoms here yet either sad

Cakebaker35 Fri 17-Jan-14 14:18:15

Only imaginary symptoms here! Total nut job for the next week so! Not sure when I'm due but could be from 25th onwards.

flipflopfiesta Fri 17-Jan-14 16:45:26

Hi everyone!

Have never posted here before but would really like to sit out the 2ww in company! I am on my 10th cycle of ttc so really hoping this time we'll have some luck. Am due a couple of days later, on 28th or 29th...let the wait begin smile

Bumpforme2014 Fri 17-Jan-14 19:03:57

Welcome everyone!! Seems like we are all in the same boat together. I am 2DPO now so not expecting any symptoms yet. Cakebaker nice to know hubby isn't on his own with stress of it all. Like you, I will be happy to just get a shorter cycle then 40 days this month!

One question for you ladies and sorry if TMI is it normal to have wet watery CM week before ovulation and week after? This happened to me last month as well and I thought I was preggars coz never had it before but maybe it's normal when not on pill? Been a little more creamy today but I don't like it, very annoying! Lol

newforest Fri 17-Jan-14 21:35:50

I think it's fine bump. I noticed the same last month and again this month. Probably always had it but now noticing everything!

Cakebaker35 Fri 17-Jan-14 22:03:17

Agree with newforest, I think we just end up analysing every little thing whereas before we just didn't really pay attention in the same way!

MrsExcited Sat 18-Jan-14 00:07:45

Joining in, ov was wednesday going on dates so will see. 1st month of ttc again after ectopic ending in mc in October. Had a shit time of it in 2013 as also had a mmc in March.

However both pregnancies resulted from first ttc so hopeful but nervous and definitely need some handholding.

Managed to dtd a good few times this week, but fully get the not finding it sexy having all the pressure.

Bumpforme2014 Sat 18-Jan-14 00:12:38

Welcome mrsExcited, sorry to hear about your mc that really sucks but onto a new year and new cycle! You ov same day as me, how longs your cycle at the moment?
