Ovulating really early?

I'm on month 2 of ttc dc3 after a tfmr in jan at 22 weeks. I am stupidly worried about every little thing now.

Dd1 was a casual 'it'll happen' we used opk but that was it. Dd2 who had Edwards was a very quick conception.

I'm now trying to do things 'right'. I track using ovia but this month is first using opk.

I finished my period on weds. Did opk on Friday as suggested by clear blue insert (25 day cycle) and got a negative. Tested yesterday and today and got flashing smilies so I guess tmrw is ovulation day?

I'm really surprised I'm ovulating so early in my cycle. Is it going to create/cause ny issues?

Anyone? I'm aware I'm probably worrying for no reason and being lame but anxiety around conception, pregnancies and babies is the theme atm!

Hi Kitty I didn't want to read and run.

I'm not an expert but I think if you achieved 2 pregnancies without any issues with conception I think you don't need to be anxious.

I can't see how far into your cycle you are (you need to count 1st day of your period as cycle day 1). With a 25 day cycle on averages you should probably ovulate around cycle day 11. (avg LP length is 14 days but does differ from person to person. LP should always stay the same but the length of time before you ovulate can change month to month. Last month I ovulated day 17 this month it was day 22!

Overall I don't think you should be worrying yet.

I'm also so sorry to hear that you dd2 was diagnosed with Edwards syndrome. A devastating time for you and your family. My line of work is involved with Edwards syndrome (I dont want to give away to much what I do) so I have some understanding of the difficult time you have been having.

Oh yes cycle day would be helpful. I'm presuming after 2 flashing faces tmrw will be. Solid one which will be day 10.

Thank you, it has been devastating, we are only just beginning to feel ready to start again. I've had a huge amount of very specialist counselling which has really helped but the worry is still there.

I guess I've lost my innocence and now I know all that can go wrong. I assumed I'd feel like this in pregnancy, what I didn't expect is to feel like this about conceiving!

I know you're right, there can't be a problem if I've already conceived twice. I just don't trust my body anymore. It's sad really.

Its normal to feel like that kitty please don't be beating yourself up over it. But as I am sure many people have told you it was nothing you did or did not do in your previous pregnancy! and it will be very unlikely to happen again. Also this was not due to your body!! Your body has not let you down!

It is so normal to be worrying about everything now though that you have had this experience. Please join us on the summer heat sperm and egg meet page - we are a nice bunch over there

Thank you, you've choked me up a bit with that.

I guess for me it's a control thing. I want control or at least to know everything that's going on with my body now.

I may well pop over. Thanks

I started ovulating eat after my first, a 26/27 day cycle. I was worried it was too soon as I had a 35 day cycle before that. I got pg after 5 months trying. Just started try alimony as soon as my period finished.

Thanks bodecia. We've been dtd every other day from the day I finish my period. Not great as I really suffer so would like a few days 'off'.

Good to see it didn't take you too long. It took about that time to conceive dd1 but I was 30 then, 3 years on I'm aware that my fertility may well be falling, especially as dd2 having Edwards may suggest my eggs don't age well.

Excuse the typos.
33 is not too old. I am 33 this month. And everyone has a few faulty eggs
. It is just the luck of the draw whether you ovulate that month with it the month you are trying. I remember and obstetric consultant explaining to a patient that had a chromosome abnormality that when trying again there will be less poor eggs in the remaining pool now(IYSWIM).

That's a good way of thinking about it.

I know it was chance, nothing I could have done, bad luck but I'm still at a higher risk now.

It's difficult to separate emotions from the knowledge and science.
