I know there's already a 2ww thread going but they're getting to the end of theirs and I'm only at the start.

AF is due around 21st march for me. Been trying to chart for the last couple of cycles and struggling a bit. I got a positive opk on Monday (CD11) but my temp is all over the place.

Anyone want to join me? Soph80 we're usually quite in sync?! smile

PuppyMummy Fri 08-Mar-13 18:56:04

ill join u! af due Wed 20th although last month it turned up 3 days early!

I had a hsg on day 9 this month. xray woman said 25% better chance this month as it flushes u out! (tubes were all fine anyway) so fingers crossed!

couldn't dtd before that so have done cd9, 10, 12 so far, think ov was cd 11 but will carry on eod anyway just in case!

Sonics Fri 08-Mar-13 20:31:32

Yay puppy waves

I want an hsg! Been told we can't have any more fertility investigations until 12 months after my mc, even though we've now been trying for 2 years in total.

How long have you been ttc?

PuppyMummy Fri 08-Mar-13 21:22:36

were on cycle 14.
sorry to hear u have mc.

I'm hoping for the rest of the blood tests done next cycle then will have had all the tests.
I thought we might miss this month because of the hsg but as we could dtd on the same night I'm now just crossing fingers.

don't feel any different from usual though!!

Blondie276 Fri 08-Mar-13 21:48:00

Hi all!
My next AF is due 23rd march if I can join ( although this is my 2nd cycle coming off BC and although cycle 1 was on time I have a feeling I'm all over the place this cycle!) not using an opk just taking note of body changes but don't seem to know exactly what's going on bagpipe have o today although not seen the signs sondont think it's happened yet.
Fingers crossed for everyone!

gilly86 Fri 08-Mar-13 22:06:26

Today is Cd14 for me and AF is due around 25th..

I don't think I've ov quite yet as been using OPKs and haven't had had a positive result! However the line is getting darker (I think) and my calculations show the next few days are my best days so lots of dtd this weekend!.... But the plan is to dtd as much as possible anyway! Lol smile


Skinnywhippet Fri 08-Mar-13 22:39:10

1st cycle. Dtd only twice on about 3rd march and 1st march so about one week into the 2ww now. Not exactly optimistic and don't even know how long my cycle is. Good luck everyone.

SarahMargaret Sat 09-Mar-13 20:06:39

i'll join, af due 22/23rd not sure if this has been our month or not. Ovulated on Thursday according to opk, but hubby works away so we couldnt dtd till last night. Not sure if sperm and egg will meet but seriously hoping so.

Good luck to all of you this month too smile

crazycatlady82 Sat 09-Mar-13 20:10:17

Can I join this thread? I am due on the 16th. So, not really the end of the month but...just l

crazycatlady82 Sat 09-Mar-13 20:13:57

Can I join this thread? I am due on the 16th. So, not really the end of the month but...just looking for a bit of support.

I have had a few symptoms over the past 5 days or so - I have been brought to tears by the slightest thing, quite unlike me, I have been not sleeping at night and lastly I am completely off wine and shunning sweet foods both of which I would usually lap up!

I want to think I'm pregnant but I am scared Mother Nature is playing tricks! Naughty Mother Nature!

Is anyone else feeling out of sorts?


PuppyMummy Sat 09-Mar-13 20:14:42

Welcome everyone! Fingers crossed all round!

PuppyMummy Sat 09-Mar-13 20:19:17

Sorry Crazy cross post!

Symptoms sound good but im afraid im very sceptical as I have had every symptom going during one cycle or another because its always in the back of my mind!

I regularly feel queasy during the 2ww, often have sore boobs etc etc!
However this month I am feeling distinctly 'normal'.

crazycatlady82 Sat 09-Mar-13 20:54:42

Puppy - sounds like your month smile

Kind of what I thought. This is only mth 1 making an actual effort so I think it's doubtful.


PuppyMummy Sat 09-Mar-13 21:02:28

Cycle 14 for us. I will die of shock if I ever actually manage to get pregnant!

crazycatlady82 Sat 09-Mar-13 21:27:46

Oh Puppy stay positive and relaxed.

I do really hope this is your mth. You deserve it after such a long wait


PuppyMummy Sat 09-Mar-13 21:56:25

We decided today that if we cant get pregnant were going to get a labrador! Add to the pooch family of one that we already have!!!

Id prefer a baby!!

Fingers crossed for u to crazy

QuietTiger Sun 10-Mar-13 14:38:41

Can I join? AF due on 21st March. Am seriously hoping for a BFP after DH and I have been shagging like rabbits making a serious effort to get up-duffed. smile

Dasie Sun 10-Mar-13 20:15:52

Hi everyone, could I join your thread?
I'm on cd12, af due 27/28th March I think. Came off cerazette on 1st Feb and had one cycle since but not really certain when things will happen as I haven't had enough time/cycles to see a pattern!

Be great to have people to compare and share with smile x

PuppyMummy Mon 11-Mar-13 19:48:24

Welcome everyone!

anyone got any exciting symptoms yet. I normally have them all so clearly they r just in my head! nothing interesting to report yet though and still over a week to go... yaaawn!

Skinnywhippet Mon 11-Mar-13 20:19:56

No symptoms apart from firm cervix but that could mean anything! I don't think I will be pregant, I don't think I will be ever. I know this is only cycle one but I don't think we dtd enough and I've always had this fear about infertility/ oh having low sperm etc. probably completely unfounded, and I doubt being in mumsnet helps..but that's how I'm feeling at the moment.

Dasie Mon 11-Mar-13 21:18:48

I got a +ve OPK today so finally/officially ish in the 2ww grin

Skinny I think everyone has the same worries and doubts about what may or may not happen. I think being here may help you talk through some your fears and get through them.

Puppy excited about symptom spotting imagining grin

winterpansy Mon 11-Mar-13 21:25:27

Hello there, ladies. Can I join you for the demented 2ww?

I'm 2dpo and am going to poas on Fri 22nd March...if I can hold off until then.
I've already got a fab DS who is almost 2 and this is our first cycle tt#2 - used cb opk ad got smiley on Friday just past (cd18). Dtd twice since then, and a few times last week.
I've got internet cheapies, clear blues and first responses on their way from Amazon ready for action. Obsessed much, moi?

Alexandra6 Tue 12-Mar-13 07:22:52

Hi, I'm 7dpo as far as I know (if I did ovulate when I think I did!) and today after dtd I noticed some browney-pink cm. Am now paranoid I either was pg but dtd "disturbed" it so very early mc or could it be implantation spotting or just spotting?! Confused, thinking of testing now but that's pointless right?!

TTC1Madness Tue 12-Mar-13 07:58:12

Hi Everyone! Can anyone help stop me going mad Got my smiley face on the 6th March (Wed) DTD on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (assuming OV was Friday). That would make me 4 or 5 DPO (28-30 Day cycle) haven't had anything really up untill today - slight feelings of nausea thought I don't know if I am making it up and just a funny feeling in my tummy. Don't feel tired or anything and actually quite calm considering 1 to 2 weeks before I turn into a raging woman before AF... I've also had a few tiny brown spots on knickers yesterday and today (SORRY TMI!!) is it all to early yet?

Thank you xxxxxxx

gilly86 Tue 12-Mar-13 08:02:48

"Today is Cd14 for me and AF is due around 25th..

I don't think I've ov quite yet as been using OPKs and haven't had had a positive result! However the line is getting darker (I think) and my calculations show the next few days are my best days so lots of dtd this weekend!.... But the plan is to dtd as much as possible anyway! Lol


So that was my post last week......

FAST FORWARD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Today is CD18 and I had a positive OPK (finally!) YESTERDAY!
Later than expected but oh well.

Also noticed quite a big dip in BBT over the weekend which Ive heard can happen right before OV...(?)... AND I also noticed EWCM yesterday! So... good times smile

We DTD on CD13, CD14, CD15, CD16 and CD17! <exhausted> lol

I guess I should probably try and DTD tonight as well?

Im charting my bbt and havent had a rise in temp yet....

AF is due around 25th March but hopefully wont come at all wink

gilly86 Tue 12-Mar-13 08:04:32

Hi TTC1Madness... Ive heard spotting can be a sign of implantation!? Not sure if its too early for that though....?

Fingers crossed for you and everyone else too! x

TTC1Madness Tue 12-Mar-13 08:09:49

Thanks Gilly86! I know.. I really am trying not get hopes up and trying to 'ignore' the symptoms I think I have!
Fingers crossed for everyone smile x

Dasie Tue 12-Mar-13 12:01:46

Hi ladies, looking for a little advice from you.
Because my positive OPK was yesterday, should I count yesterday or today as ovulation day? I did one OPK yesterday at 11:40 which was negative (only just) and the positive one was at 15:40. Have repeated this morning and I'm undecided if its still positive, could read it either way as the test stripe appears kinda in half!! any opinions welcomed!!

Dasie Tue 12-Mar-13 12:05:17

p.s I'm temp charting too but its not much help! It's only my first cycle of TTC so I'm learning as I go! smile

gilly86 Tue 12-Mar-13 13:51:31

Ahhh dasie that's a good question I want to know the same thing! I also got a positive OPK yesterday!!!!

LittleStar0909 Tue 12-Mar-13 16:59:41

Hi, can I join? I'm new to mumsnet and online chat rooms generally! My DH and I are ttc #2 after our son was stillborn in September. This is our 4th month of ttc and I think I am 1DPO (got clearblue smiley face on Mon morning). Really hope this is our month but after being disappointed for the last 3 I am trying not to get my hopes up. I'm hoping being on this thread will help me to preserve some sanity during the 2ww! Really hope you lovely ladies get BFPs this month. X

winterpansy Tue 12-Mar-13 17:25:55

Hi littlestar, so sorry for the loss of your DS.
Fair play to you for ttc so soon - it must be very stressful.
Fingers firmly crossed that this month is sucessful for you! x

PS I'm on cycle 1 and used the smiley face cb opk too - it's great that you can know when to do it at the right time!

IamKuma Tue 12-Mar-13 18:01:22

Can I join too please! I felt a bit out of the main March thread as AF not due till 28th.....

2nd cycle and already going a bit nuts! Like SarahMargaret DH works away quite a bit so wasn't able to get timing quite right last month so DTD rather a lot at the weekend and intend to keep at it for the rest of the week hoping to catch OV. Not using OPKs at the moment but according to the Ovuview app it should be around today based on a few months of tracking symptoms.....

Good luck everyone!

SarahMargaret Tue 12-Mar-13 18:31:16

IamKuma..... if you can help it stay away from opks, I got a positive last Thursday knowing that hubby wasn't home till Friday night so frustrating, was hoping I'd ov later on Thur and egg still be alive on Fri night but depends how long his sperm took to reach it sad This is our 3rd cycle, timing wasn't on our side last month and the 1 before that we used KY Kelly as we always had done not realising it has spermicide and was killing off sperm!! AF due 22nd so this day next week I might give in and start testing. If this your #1?

Dasie Tue 12-Mar-13 18:46:30

I have a similar problem Sarah and Iam, myself and DP are currently only together at weekends so I'm really hoping the DTD at the weekend equals sperm meets egg with my +ve OPK yesterday!!! grin

IamKuma Tue 12-Mar-13 19:06:12

SarahMargaret, yes this is #1; I'm 38 so I feel under time pressure too. DH is pretty much away 1 week in every 3, so we're OK this month and next, but would miss relevant dates in May.... if we are still ttc then. Before starting ttc I didn't imagine that I would be that worried about it but it's frustrating me already wink

Dasie - good luck with your weekend timings; I've read that the sperm can hang around for about 5 days so if you DTD a few days before OV you are in with a good chance!

Flossytoes Tue 12-Mar-13 19:39:29

Hellos ladies,
Can I join? I'm ttc #1 on cycle #2. It's day 21 and AF is due on 25th March (since off the pill my cycles are 32 or 33 days consistently). I got +opk on day 15 but am charting as well and haven't really had a big rise in temp although had quite a dip on day 20. Not sure what that means as I've read that could mean I ovulated that day but that's probably too many days after my +opk? Very confusing

SarahMargaret Tue 12-Mar-13 20:04:21

Dasie, I think you might be in with a shot this month, if you dtd at the weekend sperm are prob still alive and will be waiting for the egg smile good luck.

Iam hopefully you will be on your way by May ;) xx

Dasie Wed 13-Mar-13 08:56:28

Hi ladies,

How are you all? Any updates or news from anyone yet?


gilly86 Wed 13-Mar-13 09:01:15


DTD CD13,14,15,16,17

Positive OPK on CD17 after days of negatives (although the line was getting darker around CD15-16)

Gutted we couldnt DTD one more time on CD18 (yesterday) but DH was tired and had to be up at 4am this morning AND we ended up having an argument! Arrghhh! (We rarely argue so thats even MORE annoying!)

Only thing is I havent really seen an increase in BBT yet. I had a considerable DIP just before my positive OPK on monday but no big increase.... yet. Maybe tomorrow?!

Today Im going away to see some family without DH as he couldnt get the time off work.... Im back on Sunday night and OV would have definitely been and gone by then (if it hasnt already) so I feel like my DTD to conceive work is done for the month and now its time to wait!

Dasie Wed 13-Mar-13 09:07:13

Great news Gilly. I think you have the DTD front covered grin

I'm having the same thing with my temps, got my +ve OPK on monday but still no rise in temp confused.

I'm counting down to the last second til POAS time comes around!!

gilly86 Wed 13-Mar-13 09:10:56

Same!!!! My trackers say AF is due around 25th....

Fingers crossed I'll get a bfp instead smile

And hopefully u will too!

FromagePlease Wed 13-Mar-13 09:13:09

Hello all,

My AF is due 17th or 18th, and don't feel entirely hopeful. Just don't feel pregnant. However this morning I feel sick as a dog, that awful naucious feeling that won't go away. Haven't actually been sick, just waves of nausea.

Anyone get the same? It's all in my head isn't it.....?

Good luck everyone smile

FromagePlease Wed 13-Mar-13 09:18:03

So sorry, I meant 'nauseous'. Must be the queasiness impacting my spelling smile

Dasie Wed 13-Mar-13 09:20:02

Fromage I think until proven otherwise you should take everything as a positive sign smile

FromagePlease Wed 13-Mar-13 10:20:25

Thanks Dasie that's some good positive encouragement! Still feeling rather sick but not quite as bad as earlier. I'm at work at the moment, so hard to hide it! DH thinks it's the wine I had last night (I know, not approved, but was sure that it wasn't our month and so had 2 glasses)

I hope that your timings work out. As IamKuma said, I've heard that it's best to dtd before the +OPK so that the little blighters are in there are ready to go. When are you due to POAS?

Dasie Wed 13-Mar-13 10:44:58

This is only my 2nd cycle since coming off cerazette (1st TTC) so I'm a little unsure of my exact cycle length but if OPK is correct then due 25/26 March. Will probs be poas from 8dpo knowing me!!

When are you gonna succumb to the temptation to POAS Fromage

Fingers x for a BFP for us all grin

FromagePlease Wed 13-Mar-13 11:41:46

I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for you Dasie!

I won't POAS until Monday earliest. Partly as I'd rather not have the disapointment and partly as I'm too tight to pay for something that I might not need (if AF arrives) Although if I'm feel sick again tomorrow morning perhaps there's a more persuasive arguement for a cheeky early test... smile

SarahMargaret Wed 13-Mar-13 18:07:54

Totally over thinking things now. Tears yesterday and today, for no reason.. such a cranky mood too, prob just AF - due next Friday. Don't feel pregnant at all but would LOVE this to be our month sad

Dasie Wed 13-Mar-13 18:40:48

Sarah Feeling emotional and teary is probably a symptom of pregnancy as much as it is of PMS so keeping my fingers x for you grin

SarahMargaret Wed 13-Mar-13 19:26:40

Thanks Dasie, likewise for you. I love your positive mental attitude smile keep me posted x

SarahMargaret Wed 13-Mar-13 22:05:21

Just sobbed my heart out at One Born Every Minute.... seriously obsessed x

TTC1Madness Thu 14-Mar-13 06:11:56

I hope everyone is doing ok....

Last night we went out and hubby said it looked like I had heat rash because cheeks looked red (I did feel a bit hot) but we live in the middle east where it is is always warm...plus I have had stomach cramps, some spots on my face plus a bit of white discharge...
Not feeling like I want to eat loads either...which is unusual for m@

I hope this it xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

PuppyMummy Thu 14-Mar-13 06:45:22

fingers crossed everyone!

week 1 done here! still no symptoms to report, (not even 'in my head' ones). not sure if that's good or bad! hoping the magic hsg flush out effect will help!
have dtd cd 9,10,12,14,16,18 (one more for luck planned on cd20!!) and think ov on cd11/12 so fingers crossed.

Alexandra6 Thu 14-Mar-13 08:10:01

Week 1 done for me too! Going to test on Sunday, 11dpo and then if BFN wait until later next week (I have no willpower but after 15 months of negatives I'm also quite used to seeing them!) Had two days of that brown spotting which I hope was implantation bleeding, it's got a bit lighter today I think. Fingers crossed for everyone!

Dasie Thu 14-Mar-13 10:24:29

I'm so looking forward to seeing some BFP reports on this thread!! grin

Good luck ladies!!

winterpansy Thu 14-Mar-13 11:08:31

5 dpo and symptom spotting away here - I've picked up a runny nose and have increased cm. I've had a few funny feelings rumbling in the downstairs area but that could just be wind!
So happy to be going away for the weekend to take my mind off things.
Ahh, it would be so great to have lots of BFPs here over the coming week.

Good luck from me too!

SarahMargaret Thu 14-Mar-13 12:28:55

Oh is cm a sign of possible pregnancy? I was wondering that over the last couple of days, mine has increased significantly, I ovulated on the 18th so only one week ago, af is due next Friday x

winterpansy Thu 14-Mar-13 12:39:14

I read it it here: http://www.countdowntopregnancy.com/early-pregnancy-symptoms/dpo-chart.php?dpo=5

I ovulated on Sat 9th - AF is due on 26th says my App. I have irregular longish cycles which is annoying but I am going to test next Wed, if I can hold on til then!

SarahMargaret Thu 14-Mar-13 12:43:59

Thanks for that. I am obsessed, the past 3 cycles getting negative results, although it isn't a long time, I guess I was always taught you have unprotected sex you get pregnant, I never realised there was so much trying involved. Was in Tescos this morning and actually walked around the baby clothes, cried watching OBEM last night, cried when I realised how much I'd have to pay to get my car fixed, cried listening to Grimmy on R1 this morning about Comic Relief, if this isn't pregnancy hormones I'll fear I'm going crazy!
My cycles vary from 37 to 32 days so longish too, how you feeling? xx

winterpansy Thu 14-Mar-13 20:14:57

I'm obsessed already and am only on cycle 1! I am trying not to get my hopes up as I am sure it will take a few months. I am just hoping we dtd enough.
DH thinks his super sperm will just magically make it happen as DS was a little surprise so we were not even trying and I was on the pill!

I really hope that it is pregnancy hormones making you a litte crazy! I don't really feel pregnant at all but I suppose you don't feel much at 5dpo. Arrgghh..it's so annoying having to wait!

When are you planning to poas? x

SarahMargaret Thu 14-Mar-13 20:25:04

Wow you were so lucky, you might be lucky enough this month in that case. smile AF due next Friday and I really want to try then but might give in and do one next Thursday x

winterpansy Thu 14-Mar-13 20:29:55

We were lucky! Best thing that ever happened to us grin
Keep in touch next week then. It WILL happen for us both! x

SarahMargaret Thu 14-Mar-13 20:46:47

Will keep you posted, likewise x good luck

winterpansy Thu 14-Mar-13 21:05:43

Thank you x

FromagePlease Fri 15-Mar-13 09:57:56

Morning everyone.

Is anyone symptom spotting and driving themselves to distraction? I'm feeling bloated and have occassional nausea. Sometimes I've been quite lightheaded. That said, I just don't feel pregnant at all, so very much doubt it's the case and think it's all in my head. AF is due Sunday so might POAS then.

Anyone else symptom checking, or POAS this weekend?

Alexandra6 Fri 15-Mar-13 10:48:02

I'm bloated and lightheaded too!! My boobs look a teensy bit bigger. Hmmm. Shame so many symptoms fit for AF coming too!

I'm POAS on Sunday, 11 DPO, do you think there's any chance it will give an accurate reading then? Let's face it, stands more chance than when I tested 6dpo! wink

FromagePlease Fri 15-Mar-13 12:48:13

So hard to distinguish symptoms isn't it! My boobs are resolutely unchanged, even when I give them a sharp prod they aren't hurting one bit! V. annoying, but perhaps comical to watch!

I guess there isn't any harm testing on day 11DPO, why not, what's the worst that can happen? smile I'm 11DPO today myself and it's so tempting! I'm trying to hold out until Monday if I get that far as AF due Sunday. So far I have no particular PMS symptoms

Alexandra6 Fri 15-Mar-13 15:04:22

Just hid behind my computer screen in the office and gave myself a good grope - they didn't hurt at all! Damn. Good luck holding out until Monday on poas!

FromagePlease Fri 15-Mar-13 15:35:21

ha ha, that made me chuckle! I'm working from home today, much easier to give them a poke. Sadly, even my latest attempt still yielding nothing at all smile

Skinnywhippet Fri 15-Mar-13 18:35:09

Ouch. Af is here. Feel like my body has failed me but my stay positive as was only cycle 1. Might give up trying for a bit! Not sure I'm ready for all this.

PuppyMummy Fri 15-Mar-13 19:13:41

skinny don't give up after 1 cycle!

I'm on cycle 14! you do get used to it jot happening although it is annoying.

I don't poas so I think that makes it easier...

still symptom-less here!

SarahMargaret Fri 15-Mar-13 19:13:56

awww Skinnywippet I thought it would happen for me on cycle 1 but unfortunately not, Im on cycle 3 now and waiting not so patiently for next Thurs to take a hps, that will be 14 days po. Debating trying a bit earlier, does anyone have any advice on when I could start trying?

Symptoms today (real or made up) are watery cm, sore boobs, tired, grumpy and weepy, also feel a bit airy fairy like I'm not really with it.

QuietTiger Sat 16-Mar-13 09:26:16

Well that's me off the 2WW. sad

Have had flu all week and AF arrived a week early this morning - just to add insult to injury.

PuppyMummy Sat 16-Mar-13 09:52:51

sarah depends what test u use. Sensitive ones you can use 5 days before you are due but it will only be about 60% accurate that early. Superdrug own are supposed to be sensitive too.
You could get a false negative, probably better to wait a day or so before your due.

Fwiw I dont poas unless I have a big drinking event planned.its too disappointing!

Sorry to those who af has caught up with them. Mine came 3 days early last cycle after 4 cycles nice and neat at 24 days. Annoying!
Had a few twingy cramps yesterday so suspect same mite happen this time!

TTC1Madness Sat 16-Mar-13 18:02:59

Hope everyone is doing ok. Sorry if AF has caught up on you xxx

TMI alert - ladies has anyone felt like they are leaking down below? Last few hours I have just seen wet patches in my knickers has this happened to anyone? I'm now about 9 days dpo! Argh! If pregnancy tests weren't so expensive here I wild be doing them everyday from now!

Dasie Sat 16-Mar-13 18:12:23

TTC - Can't help with your symptom but have you looked on amazon for the cheap HCG dipstick tests? I bought 50 for around £9!

I intend to do lots of tests grin

TTC1Madness Sat 16-Mar-13 18:15:38

Hi Dasie! I have but it takes amazon about 18 days to deliver to the Middle East and sometimes takes longer! Hubby has said to wait till AF is due and then we will buy a clear blue!! Are you in 2wwxxx

Dasie Sat 16-Mar-13 18:26:10

Ah, yep that would rule out next day delivery then grin

I'm 4/5dpo and getting very impatient!! Going to test from 8dpo as I am a fool!!

When are you due BFP?

SarahMargaret Sat 16-Mar-13 20:01:50

TTC I feel the exact same, although was worse yesterday and Thurs, don't know what it means but read that increased cm is a + sign so fingers crossed. keep us posted x

Alexandra6 Sat 16-Mar-13 21:25:49

Ladies I'm testing tomorrow,11dpo, wish me luck! Xx

BankWuggery Sat 16-Mar-13 21:49:56

Can I join? I think I am on day 19 of a normally 28/30 day cycle- but having a rough time at work and stress always delays my ov a bit. Gah. So i should have ovd on Tuesday but might only have done so today- ov normally v obvious to me but symptoms all over the place! So AF may be due on 26th or 30th. Bugger it all. Only cycle 1 of ttc #3 but bloody hell why did it have to be so complicated straight away? Normal cycle please!

TTC1Madness Sun 17-Mar-13 07:01:24

SarahMargaret lets hope so! Keep posting!

Fingers crossed for everyone xx One week to go...!

TTC1Madness Sun 17-Mar-13 07:01:51

Alexandra6 fingers crossed for you!!!!!!!! x

gilly86 Sun 17-Mar-13 07:58:18

One week to go of my 2WW!
AF due on 25th so I'm gonna try not to POAS til then (even though I have loads of pound shop cheap tests!)

Dasie Sun 17-Mar-13 18:32:08

Good luck Alexandra

Hello Bank

Great willpower Gilly

Fingers crossed Sarah and eveyone else grin

10 days dpo here. Boobs tender and nipples feel strange. So poas and errrr... I think it's positive. Faint but there. DP can see it too. But I'm now paranoid it's just an evap line (it appeared in the time ut takes to brush teeth though.) Going to boots at 7 am tomorrow to buy another test or 10

TTC1Madness Mon 18-Mar-13 06:22:52

Hi Guys - Don't know if I am feeling a bit downbeat but I think I am out this month. The nausea feeling has gone and I am feeling more like I have cold appearing more than anything really! sad sad Will still test on Sunday when AF is due but feeling negative!!

gilly86 Mon 18-Mar-13 07:09:45

Ooooh congrats MrsF - fingers crossed its a bfp! Sounds promising smilex

gilly86 Mon 18-Mar-13 07:10:44

It's not over yet TTC1madness!!!! Stay positive smile
Fingers crossed for you too!! Xx

SarahMargaret Mon 18-Mar-13 10:23:22

Eeeek MsF congrats hope it is a positive keeping everything crossed for you.

smile smile

I'm on day 1opo now, really bad cramps feel just like period pains though, have massive sore boobs too.

IamKuma Mon 18-Mar-13 12:00:38

TTC1 I know how you feel, the 2ww is a rather despondent time.... remember though that symptoms really aren't likely to start until at least 10 dpo; I've even read that is virtually impossible to get any early symptoms as hormone levels are so low even at implantation....still not easy to forget about it though!

Good luck MsF, I think best results are first thing in the morning!

minicc Mon 18-Mar-13 12:26:06

Afternoon all, I'm 2 or 3 dpo and staring down the barrel of my first 2ww ttc baby no 2. Stopped bf in December so I'm hoping my cycles are somewhat normal! Slowly going mad symptom spotting- was totally obvious I was pregnant last time and it happened relatively quickly so.... We'll wait and see!

It's a bfp. Oh my word. I feel so emotional.

Now I have to figure out how to do Passover without drinking wine as I don't wish to tell the extended family until end of trimester!

gilly86 Mon 18-Mar-13 13:47:46

Congrats MsF!!!! That's brilliant news!!!!!!!!!!!!smilesmilesmilesmilesmile Xx

Thanks. Hope to see everyone on Nov/Dec baby threads soon!

gilly86 Mon 18-Mar-13 14:14:29

Aaahhhhh I hope so too! Gotta get through this last week of my 2ww first! hmm

Dasie Mon 18-Mar-13 16:38:24

Congratulations MsF great news grin

TTC try not to feel too negative, not feeling pregnant is totally normal at this stage so that's a good sign!!


PuppyMummy Mon 18-Mar-13 17:47:36

congratulations MsF ! lets hope its the first of many.

2 days to go for me. af due Wed...
still no symptoms so its just waiting, waiting!
I don't normally poas but if af is being funny and is late, ill have to on thurs as have appointment for blood tests which have to be done on cd1-5!! no good if I'm not bleeding!

IamKuma Mon 18-Mar-13 17:53:03

Great news MsF smile Congratulations!

SarahMargaret Mon 18-Mar-13 18:22:26

congrats mrsf smile smile

winterpansy Mon 18-Mar-13 20:35:51

Congrats MrsF! Great news!

I'm 10dpo tomorrow and have FR, Clearblue and internet cheapies pg tests in the house.
Should I do one in the morning with fmu? Which should I use? Oh, I'm nervous!

How are you Sarah?

MortifiedAdams Tue 19-Mar-13 00:53:17

Hi all can I join? AF due 29th March, ovulated today, I get pains so at least I know when to jump.on dh. Ttc #2, got bfp on second cycle with dc1, but just feel totally highly strung this time around.

If this.month is successful (first cycle so doubtful), baby will have its birthday very very close.to dds.

I know Im going to drive myself.potty the next two weeks.

SarahMargaret Tue 19-Mar-13 08:15:47

Morning winterpansy - I think I'm 10 dpo today but tested this morning on a superdrug test which says it can tell 4 days before but I got a neg. Not going to do another one till Fri when af is due its too disappointing. Did u take a test this morning

Meemawandmoonpie Tue 19-Mar-13 09:39:56

Morning girls,
3rd month of trying and have been DTD like a fiend, hubby thinks all his chrimbos have come at once.
Since yesterday I've had weird bloated feeling (I never get bloated), period type pains (AF not due till 29th) and even though I was sitting down yesterday, still went very dizzy... PG or a cold? I'm hoping for the former, I suspect the latter, though hubby did mention I was a bit different yesterday.
Gawd this baby making thing is a bit hard 'innit?

Anyways, have fingers, toes and eyeballs crossed for some good new from those trying and a hearty congrats to those who can now move onto the pregnancy forums!


Mythreeknights Tue 19-Mar-13 10:01:32

Hi all - can I join in? I've been watching this thread for ages and now AF is due on Thurs but I have felt really 'pregnant' for the last ten days, I am really hopeful. This is TTC for baby 3 which I've been brooding for since August but only just got DH onside...feeling: sore boobs (nipples), nausea, glowing skin, glossy hair, stuffy nose and slightly off wine...BUT I POAS yesterday (cheapie boots one which only works from 1st day of period) and BFN. We shall see.

Dasie Tue 19-Mar-13 10:26:47

Hi Ladies new and old smile

I'm 7/8dpo today and I'm wishing my life away!!

Excited in case a BFP is on its way but even if not then AF means we can get cracking on cycle 2 grin

How is everyone doing?

Mythreeknights Tue 19-Mar-13 10:41:15

ARGH!! Just went to the loo and sodding AF has arrived. Feel completely crumpled as was 100% convinced I was pregnant. Boo hiss. Good luck to everyone else still in with a chance this month!

gilly86 Tue 19-Mar-13 10:44:28

Hi dasie how are you?!?
We are at the same point... 7-8dpo and wishing for a bfp but if not a quick and painless AF so I can get cracking next month!!! wink

When's your AF due?

My cycles have ranged from 29-31 days since coming off the pill so earliest AF would be Sunday for me but maybe next mon/tues/wed...! Arrgghhhhhhhh.

gilly86 Tue 19-Mar-13 10:47:56

Ahhh sorry to hear that mythreeknights hmm <hug>

Hope AF goes away quickly for you!

Good luck for April! Xxx

Dasie Tue 19-Mar-13 10:51:00

Hey Gilly

This is only my 2nd cycle since coming off cerazette so not 100% sure of exact cycle length. Last one was 25 days but ov'd later in this cycle so possibly 27 days this time. Guess I'll know for sure if AF does strike again!!

It's good to have a cycle buddy to get excited with as no-one except DP knows in RL smile

gilly86 Tue 19-Mar-13 11:06:37

Ahhh same smile
I'm pretty sure I OV'd either last Monday or Tuesday so cd17-18.

My mum+sister know I'm not on the pill anymore... wink
My sister in law kinda knows we are trying because I asked her a while ago about how it took her to conceive after coming off the pill and other questions like that so she has probably guessed we are trying...

And one of my friends knows too but she's not a friend I ever see.. She lives abroad now.. We never see eachother.. Rarely chat on the phone... Mostly just text and check in with eachother every now and then so I felt ok telling her cos she's not someone that will constantly be in my face talking about it!

winterpansy Tue 19-Mar-13 14:15:06

Hello new ladies!

Sorry to hear about AF mythree. That's rubbish but sure today is another cycle. Not exactly comforting, I know, but at least you can get stuck in again in a week or two.

Sarah Ditto! 10 dpo today too, I think. BFN from an internet cheapy.
I'm a bit down about it but know there is a tiny, tiny bit of hope of a BFP in a few days. I'll try to hang on until Fri too...can't promise though!

Meemawandmoonpie Tue 19-Mar-13 14:15:08

Am in agony. Not due on till 29th so shouldn't be aunt flo pains, but it feels almost the same, not as much as'oh my god I'm gonna rip my womb out and stamp on it' pain, but pain nonetheless. And TMI alert, this morning I noticed a definite change in my CM (does anyone else hate the word mucous?), as in it was more present than usual.
Implantation pain?
I do hope so. Anyone else had these pains before the red witch returned?

gilly86 Tue 19-Mar-13 14:17:31

I'm not due to 25th/26th but been experiencing period like pains today and lots of CM yesterday.
I'm an idiot and POAS today. Of course it was a BFN - 7dpo! (lucky I have loads if cheap tests so can afford to be wasteful!)

Meemawandmoonpie Tue 19-Mar-13 14:31:47

I think I'll hold off POAS till of I'm late, just so don't get myself too hyped up. If its a BFN I think it'll probably make me a bit more obsessed.

winterpansy Tue 19-Mar-13 14:38:42

I've definitely experience an increase in CM most days since OV.
I hate symptom spotting, it's driving me insane and this is only cycle 1....

mema You have a lot of patience and sense to hang on til AF is late. I have those cheapy tests too so I'll do them and if I see anything at all I'll crack open the FR and CB. This is going to bankrupt me!

SarahMargaret Tue 19-Mar-13 14:44:35

winterpansy - I'm not going to test again till Friday - how r u feeling? any signs this might have been your month?

So many people on my facebook news feed have been announcing babies due over the past few days its driving me mad! I keep telling myself 50 - 60% OF COUPLES CONCEIVE IN THE FIRST 6 MONTHS OF TRYING AND 85% IN ONE YEAR.

If I've been unsuccessful this month #4 then theres a good chance it'll happen fairly soon smile but I have felt a niggling pain down below for 2/3days now, boobs = massive and sore as, crying all the time at anything and generally feeling down - could be PMS but could be symptoms.....

please God let it be the latter smile Good luck to all you ladies

Meemawandmoonpie Tue 19-Mar-13 15:08:15

Yeah, I think part of me just thinks its AF deciding to mess me over this month and don't want to jinx it. Either that or I'm bricking it and it's a good coping strategy. I really want to be pg its just fear of the unknown...and lack of sleep x

Mythreeknights Tue 19-Mar-13 15:48:28

Thanks gilly and winterpansy I do feel quite blue about it which is silly but I was so convinced!! How could I have fooled myself to that extent? Sending lots of BFP vibes to all of you waiting to test and I'll see some of you no doubt on the April 2WW thread (if there is one!) The only problem with April is that it ends up with a December/Jan baby, which lets face it, isn't ideal for the little one! So, I may be a bit half hearted for April and crack on again in all seriousness for May.

TTC1Madness Tue 19-Mar-13 16:24:49

Omg - I got a opk smiley face on cd 11. AF due on Saturday and I have just done another Opk as I don't want to waste my only HPT...and breathe it came back with a smiley face trying not to get hopes up. Question...should I do my hpt straight away? Of should I wait until tomorrow morning? Worried my urine won't be concentrated enough anymore. Last 2 days tired, sore back, heavy boobs and increased clear cm today. Please help!

Dasie Tue 19-Mar-13 16:32:45

TTC OMG thats pretty exciting!! If you can hang on for a FMU tomoro you're more likely to get an accurate result?

Fingers and toes x for you grin

gilly86 Tue 19-Mar-13 16:36:19

TTC1 that's very very exciting!!!!
Fingers and toes crossed!!!!!!!! smilesmilesmilesmile

TTC1Madness Tue 19-Mar-13 16:36:44

Hi Dasie x think I am going to do that! Just needed someone else to say that to me!!! I did the test randomly..had been drinking water and only held my pee for about hour! Two lines quite strong on the test stick but that could mean anything!!

gilly86 Tue 19-Mar-13 16:37:09

TTC1 you said cd11... Do you mean 11dpo?

TTC1Madness Tue 19-Mar-13 16:37:53

Thank you gilly! Don't know what I sold do without these boards!

TTC1Madness Tue 19-Mar-13 17:08:35

I couldn't wait! Faint 2nd line!!! Going to get a digital tomorrow!

PuppyMummy Tue 19-Mar-13 17:19:15

welcome all new people!
exciting news! fingers crossed ttc

af due tomorrow. have started the usual cramps this aft so expecting her right on time! still ill keep a few toes crossed just in case!

gilly86 Tue 19-Mar-13 17:24:14

Good luck TTC1!

Puppymummy fingers crossed for u smile

IamKuma Tue 19-Mar-13 19:15:00

Gilly - I'm also 7dpo today and have had AF style cramps all day, trying not to get my hopes up though.... AF not due till 28th but I OV early in my cycle so can't decide whether to try an early HPT on Friday which will be 10DPO or wait until 27th when I had decided to do the test as I have a work event in the evening during which I will be expected to be drinking ....

TTC1 (and everybody else) Good luck!

gilly86 Tue 19-Mar-13 19:18:35

I want to wait until the 27th but don't think I can!!!!!!!

winterpansy Tue 19-Mar-13 21:33:56

Sarah I don't know. Because it is only our first cycle I am not convinced it's going to happen but on the other hand I think I have had a metallic taste in my mouth and my nipples are sore! I didn't find out until I was 5-6 weeks with DS, and he was a surprise so I wasn't actively looking for signs. Now I think I am looking too hard. Ttc is definitely difficult on the old brain! Fingers crossed for us on Friday x

Meema Keep us posted. I'll have everything crossed that evil AF doesn't show. I'm not due until 26th because I have stupid long cycles so can't wait that long to test again!

Mythree Don't beat yourself up,we're all losing our minds with this waiting. I'm 90% sure I'll be joining you on the April 2ww thread. I'm not bothered about a potential Dec/Jan baby - DS was 3 weeks early so I hope no.2 will be too. We'll be giving it the heap during ov time!

TC1 Brill news! That sounds very promising indeed. Hope the digital gives you a happy result!

Puppy It's not over til AF arrives. And if she does then at least you'll know for sure and get cracking on the next cycle.

Gilly Bet you won't hold off. It's just too hard!!

SarahMargaret Wed 20-Mar-13 08:01:29

So this morning I have had to ring in sick to work - feel awful, sick tummy, sore head,sore back, sore legs. I took a cheapy internet test to see if that what it was but its negative. sad af not due till the weekend though and she's always late. Can you get pregnancy symptoms byt get a bfn? or have a just got flu

FromagePlease Wed 20-Mar-13 08:29:27

TTC1 - Good luck with your test.

Sadly for me AF arrived, it's hard not to be disappointed. I see babies and pregnant ladies everywhere I go now! Fingers crossed for next month and good luck everyone smile

FromagePlease Wed 20-Mar-13 08:31:30

SarahMargaret - I'm sorry that you're not feeling so well and that you had a bfn. Sounds like you might have the flu, but why not test again in a few days perhaps? Maybe you're testing too early? I know that my mum had flu symptoms when she was newly pregnant with me, so you never know!

SarahMargaret Wed 20-Mar-13 08:37:40

Fromage - sorry to hear af arrived, i think she'll visit me very soon too. As much as I want these symptoms to be preg 1s I doubt if they are. I'm going to test at the weekend again if af doesnt arrive. At least ur af is here - you can move on to a new cycle smile

winterpansy Wed 20-Mar-13 11:56:12

I'm out this month! AF arrived today - only a 30 day cycle this time so I'm not in too bad form about it as it means ovulation time will be sooner than I expected.

BFPs in April then, ladies?

SarahMargaret Wed 20-Mar-13 12:00:09

Aww sorry winterpansy sad but yes your right on to the next cycle smile Im on days 31 now still no bfp

gilly86 Wed 20-Mar-13 12:00:37

Aggggghh sorry winterpansy that's rubbish sad
Hope AF goes away quickly for you so you can down to business in April! X

TTC1Madness Wed 20-Mar-13 13:50:21

Hi ladies just to let you know I got a BFP on a clearblue digital today x thnk you to all you ladies and I wish everyone lots of baby dust! Looking forward to seeing lots more BFP's soon!

gilly86 Wed 20-Mar-13 13:52:43

Oh my goodness ttc1 I'm so happy for you!!!!!!!!!! Another BFP this month! WOW!!!!
What's your secret BFP ladies?? Share it with the rest of us!!!!!!!! smilesmilesmilesmilesmilesmile

Mythreeknights Wed 20-Mar-13 13:58:23

HUGE congratulations TT1Madness! Delighted for you and what's brilliant about these boards is that even when the BFP isn't for us, it is just magical seeing it arrive for others. Wishing you a very happy 9 months! xx

TTC1Madness Wed 20-Mar-13 14:17:07

Thank you Gilly and Mythreeknights xxx these boards have been a godsend for me and I wish everyone the very best of luck xxxx

Meemawandmoonpie Wed 20-Mar-13 15:16:05

Congrats TTC, so happy to see some good news!

SarahMargaret Wed 20-Mar-13 16:57:00

Congrats TTC, it really is good to see some good news smile

PuppyMummy Wed 20-Mar-13 18:36:32


af arrived right on time, cd1 for me!!

gilly86 Wed 20-Mar-13 18:52:24

Ahhhh puppymummy that's a bummer! Hope it's a quick AF so you can crack on with some Easter dtd gringrin

Hekkie Wed 20-Mar-13 21:52:44


I'm a newbie :-) DH and I started TTC this month. I stupidly thought you just need to have lots of sex to make a baby before stumbling on mumsnet and realising timing plays a big part in it! I think I ov'd last week and AF is due 28th. I'm desperately trying not to symptom spot but it's so hard not to. We only DTD twice last week due to work commitments / stag do's, so it's highly unlikely we'll have conceived....

Good luck lovelies x

Meemawandmoonpie Thu 21-Mar-13 06:28:22

Hi hekkie, we're almost AF twins! Good luck xx

MortifiedAdams Thu 21-Mar-13 06:54:39

sad feel totally symptom-less and 'hollow'. Had mega bloating when ovulating and now just nothing at all.

How soon do/shpuld symptoms start after ov?

SarahMargaret Thu 21-Mar-13 09:53:09

That's me out for this month too, AF ruined the party this morning. So disappointed but at least its another new cycle again smile Going on a 10 day holiday from next Friday and ov due 8th April so might be in with a shot next month.

gilly86 Thu 21-Mar-13 10:03:29

Arrgghhhhhhhh Sarahmargaret sorry AF has found you! sad
Good luck for April and enjoy your holiday... Happy Easter humping grin

gilly86 Thu 21-Mar-13 10:04:19

Also hi hekkie <waves> good luck smile xx

gilly86 Thu 21-Mar-13 10:05:36

Mortifiedadams when did you ov and when's AF due? Some people have no symptoms at all! X

winterpansy Thu 21-Mar-13 10:08:51

Thanks Sarah and Gilly. DH is not too bothered as he knows he is going to get even more action this month than last, just to be on the safe side! He says he will not panic unless we haven't conceived by cycle 3. I like his optimism anyway!

I'm due to OV around 8th if app is to be believed so will get cracking every day from 2nd until at least the 10th if we can (makes me tired thinking about it though!). I'll be using the cd opks again.

Oohh..I think a load of us are on nearly the same cycle days - let's keep this thread going for some massive BFPs around the end of April.

Sorry for those who are disappointed by AF - let Spring bring us baby news very soon x

Big congrats to TTC

gilly86 Thu 21-Mar-13 10:13:14

I agree on keeping the thread going..... If I don't get a BFP this month my BFP will be due same time next month! smile

And every month grin

SarahMargaret Thu 21-Mar-13 14:08:43

smile PEASE lets keep this thread going - same winterpansy due to ov on the 8th. I think if it doesn't happen this cycle I will start to panic!
Thanks gilly - I'll try my best with the easter humping lol.

gilly86 Thu 21-Mar-13 15:09:54

Wish I could STOP POAS! I'm addicted.

Having hundreds of cheap tests is a double edged sword.

Keep testing and get BFN after BFN. I'm only 9dpo this is ridiculous.

Someone slap me with a wet fish.

TryDrawing Thu 21-Mar-13 16:21:16

Hi all,

Mind if I join you? We're ttc #2. This is our 1st month of trying and AF is due on the 28th. It's silly really because dd was ill and we didn't get to dtd as much as planned but i'm still kind of hoping...

winterpansy Thu 21-Mar-13 17:14:38

Yay for thread continuation and plenty of Easter humping. We'll all be at it like rabbits grin!

GillyI am a POAS addict too. I even did this morning to double check AF was not not implantation bleeding. Jeez. Can you even hold off over the weekend and try again on Monday for a more reliable result? Easier said thatn done, I know...

Hi try! You're very welcome to the 2ww club loonybin. I'm on cycle 2 of tt#2 so at a similar stage to you. Every dtd can count so maybe something will stick this month, you never know!

gilly86 Thu 21-Mar-13 17:18:33

Yup I'm gonna TRY and hold off til Monday... Lets see how that goes! Lol! grin

MortifiedAdams Thu 21-Mar-13 18:40:58

Sorry for late reply Gilly, been at work. I ovulated a week ago, if that grin and DTD every day before it and the day after. been mental busy at work so not much chamce after.....think I may book an Advanced Purchase.on the next bus.

I.know its too early for symptoms being totally honest with myself but Im so hyper sensitove to.every twinge or bit of wind grin

IamKuma Thu 21-Mar-13 20:59:30

Hello Newbies! Hekkie, Meemaw I think we are all due AF about the same time so lets hope for positive results!

Gilly try this link Pregnancy Test Timing for a slap with wet fish realistic timeline for testing it gave me a giggle anyway! I'm still planning on holding out till Wednesday though as I only have 2 tests rather than a box wink

SarahMargaret sorry to hear AF arrived; it sounds like you're in with a good chance next month, enjoy your holiday.

gilly86 Thu 21-Mar-13 21:29:08

Yeaaah.... I should be testing next Tues/Wed/Thurs really!

So difficult to wait though! haha!!!!!!!!!

<slaps self with wet fish>

Dasie Thu 21-Mar-13 21:45:11

Hi ladies,

I'm 9dpo and like Gilly I poas today too, and it was BFN not sure why I'm suprised!! Will join in the wet fish slapping!

Bad news ladies that have bee hit by AF, I'll probably be joining you all soon on the April thread smile

Congratulations TTC grin

Meemawandmoonpie Thu 21-Mar-13 22:59:57

<waving at iamkuma>

SarahMargaret Thu 21-Mar-13 23:20:36

Hey Dasie - sorry to hear you af arrived today, mine too, we might be on the same ov cycle next Month my ap says Ill be around the 8th.
Thanks IamKuma smile maybe next month smile

Dasie Fri 22-Mar-13 11:57:04

Hi Sarah haven't quite jumped off here yet, AF not here as yet, was just summising that it probably would be soon. Sorry to see yours has caught you now sad

Trying extra hard today not to poas, no news is good news as they say!

gilly86 Fri 22-Mar-13 12:26:31

Daaaaaasiiiiiieeeee <sings> grin

I need to snap out of it and stop testing so early!
Anyway... I'm feeling more and more like I'll be hopping on the April bus sad

Trying to stay positive as AF isn't due for at least another 3 days...

IamKuma Fri 22-Mar-13 14:28:51

I'm feeling good as new today so not feeling positive. Symptoms were probably just my mind playing tricks on me. I even woke up in the night dreaming that I needed to get up and POAS!! Seriously brain, be kind to me ... confused

Dasie Sat 23-Mar-13 12:50:47


11dpo and I POAS........it was a BFP!!!!!!!!!!! grin

I'm excited and scared, not counting my chickens yet as this things needs to stay stuck IYKWIM.

I hope you all catch it from me now grin

gilly86 Sat 23-Mar-13 13:22:04

Congrats dasie! So pleased for yoooooou smilesmilesmilesmile

My bbt has dipped a bit today so I think AF is on the way... Boooooo sad

Dasie Sat 23-Mar-13 13:31:39

Thanks Gilly, I had a couple of 'mini' dips on my BBT over the last four days?

It ain't over til the fat lady sings, as they say smile

Fingers crossed for you x

MortifiedAdams Sat 23-Mar-13 14:16:46

Congrats Daisy!!

Hekkie Sat 23-Mar-13 17:28:55

Congrats daisy!
I'm convinced I'll be joing the April bus - i have zero symptoms.
I'm working away this week, which will hopefully take my mind off (obsessively) symptom spotting!!

IamKuma Sat 23-Mar-13 18:08:22

Congrats Dasie!

I'm staying with friends this weekend so can at least stay away from poas opportunities.... can't quite step away from this board though wink

gillywillywoo Sat 23-Mar-13 22:33:35

<pokes head in>

this is gilly86 with a new name! <waves>

SarahMargaret Sun 24-Mar-13 11:33:03

congrats Dasie so pleased for u xx

TryDrawing Sun 24-Mar-13 22:05:01

Well, I couldn't resist poas this morning but it was a bfn. Af not due til the 28th though, so it's no surprise. I just couldn't resist!

No symptoms, although the only one last time was a super sense of smell and I wouldn't know about that because I have the cold that everyone seems to have!

gillywillywoo Sun 24-Mar-13 22:07:37

Yup I've got a cold too so sense of smell is not working haha grin
Bunged up nose and phlegmmy throat but don't feel ill so to speak... Just snotty! grin

gillywillywoo Mon 25-Mar-13 07:56:49

Grrrrrr! Think AF has arrived! Very light spotting... 12dpo. Don't think it's implantation bleeding... 99% sure it's AF on the way.

Boooooo sad

I'll be back same time next month for more symptom spotting! grin

littlepinkfizz Mon 25-Mar-13 08:14:40

Really sorry to hear that gilly Will see you on the April bus.... X grin

Blondie276 Mon 25-Mar-13 10:15:26

Morning all!

Well, I'm 14 dpo today as had few cramps over weekend an the nothing which is unusual for me. AF was due today so did a test and have got a faint line!
Trying not to get too excited as much as it is a line it's very faint so will test again on wed to see. This TTC has so many ifs and buts so trying to be patient!
Fingers crossed for everyone! wink

Mythreeknights Mon 25-Mar-13 12:54:50

It's definitely AF.. No doubt about that! sad

I'll be back in this thread at the end of April grin good luck ladies x

Hekkie Wed 27-Mar-13 22:43:40

AF has arrived a day early. I am never early.

jools70 Wed 27-Mar-13 22:49:37

Can I join, af due 3rd April, I'm 10 dpo and ha e been cramping today, felt sick cooking dinner and bb's are bigger and a little sore, can't seem to stop crying, even got teary this morning reading the paper about frozen lambs, omg what is wrong with me lol!
I pray that I'm preg.
Anyone else have similar symtoms?

TryDrawing Thu 28-Mar-13 00:47:48

Well um, Af due tomorrow (28th) but I'm going away for the long weekend and the pregnancy tests winked at me in the bathroom as I was brushing my teeth. Thought I'd do one last one before Af arrived.

And it's only a (faint but definitely not imaginary) bfp!


jools70 Thu 28-Mar-13 08:10:25

Trydrawing - Congratulations!!! Wonderful news.
Hope the baby dust comes my way this weekend!
Can I ask what symptoms you have had if any?

TryDrawing Thu 28-Mar-13 10:14:13

None so far this time. Last time, I got a super sense of smell, which is actually what made me go and poas. This time I have a stuffed up nose, so if i do have my super sense of smell back, I can't tell!

Crossing my fingers for you jools70

winterpansy Thu 28-Mar-13 15:06:39

Congrats try!! A line is a line grin
Hello to the newbies.

The news here is that AF has just gone so 'Operation Get Knocked Up' is ready for action. Come on April BFP, lets be having ya!

jools70 Thu 28-Mar-13 16:52:28

Winterpansy - good luck for april x

Trydrawing - no sniffles here.

Bought two tests today, just poas and it was BFN, still 6 days before period maybe too soon. If its not positive at the weekend I'll give up on checking all my symptoms each month as this month I've had the lot.

At the mo I still have cramps, back pain, crying all the time, headache and I just saw two magpies.

The sun has just started shining in Kent lets hope it stays for the weekend.

Happy Easter all, hope the baby dust scatters amongst us x

jools70 Sat 30-Mar-13 10:14:04

Morning all, how are we all doing?
Had stabbing pains on the right side yesterday, when I was off to bed I noticed blue veins around my bb's and my areolas looked enormous lol, Af due on Wed.
Tested again this morning, it's only a cheapy from Sainsbury's but said can detect 4-5 days before.......BFN i'm sorry to say.
Why all the symptoms?
Why do we put ourselves through this, agonising every month.
Sorry to have a moan but I really don't think it's my month.

winterpansy Sun 31-Mar-13 20:28:56

Thanks jools DS hasn't been sleeping well so we're really having to summon the energy to DTD!

Sorry to hear you are feeling down. It really messes with your head, all this ttc stuff. You're still not out though. It's not over til arrives!

MortifiedAdams Sun 31-Mar-13 20:31:56

Hey, no AF for me yet and was expecting it friday (dont think its clockwork thougg). POAS tomorrow. Had a heap.of EWCM yesterday - not sure if thats a sign.

winterpansy Sun 31-Mar-13 20:35:04

Oohh..that sounds promising mortified. Keep us posted!

MortifiedAdams Sun 31-Mar-13 20:37:23

eeek will do! Wont be able to go and buy a test til later in the day so am considering peeing in a beaker and leaving it on the side til I get a test - thats not.odd is it?

winterpansy Tue 02-Apr-13 19:18:10

Well mortified? Any news?

Only news on my side is that we have DTD 3 times since AF has gone and are determined to keep this energy up while we can! App tells me I'm due to ov next Sun/Mon (will be doing cb opks to find out for definite) so we've a few more opportunities to try and make it happen this month then it's back to the 2ww. Arrggghh.

How is everyone else doing? Hanging (shagging) in there?

MortifiedAdams Tue 02-Apr-13 23:33:07

Tested at tea time - BFN. AF arrived at 10pm (in the pub of all places!)

Now on a strict 'DTD every other night' rule - music to DHs ears!

winterpansy Wed 03-Apr-13 21:33:33

Aww sorry to her that AF got you sad.
At least you could comiserate with a drink in the pub!
Good luck for this cycle. Fingers crossed April is good to us all.

winterpansy Wed 03-Apr-13 21:34:05

sorry to hear - not sorry to her!

gillywillywoo Wed 10-Apr-13 22:33:35

BUMP! We're approaching that time again ladies... End of the month crew... Assemble!!!! grin

winterpansy Wed 10-Apr-13 23:30:02

I'm in gilly! How are you?

Having a bit of a weird cycle. No smiley face on opks yet and I'm currently on day 21. It was day 18 last month. Missed testing on Saturday because I was out of town so am wondering if it happened then..but I've had ewcm since then? Have managed to dtd cd 10,12,14,15,17,19,21 so hopefully I've covered all bases! Will try for another few times over this weekend too, just in case of a super late ov. So I am unsure of how many days dpo I am! Will just aim to test on Friday 26th April as that when my app says af is due (unless she arrives first, which is possible).

gillywillywoo Thu 11-Apr-13 06:12:21

Hi winterpansy same here!

CD18 today and I have cheap OPKs AND clearblue digis... Been testing since CD11 and still no positive!
Also charting and my bbt is still low.

Last month I got a very clear positive OPK on CD16 and CD17... And also EWCM on CD17 and CD18.

Last month I ovulated around CD17-18 but this month I've had no sign of it do far.

Wondering what's going on blush

Maybe we are both gonna ov a bit later than usual this month... Although that worries me a bit of it means my luteal phase will be short... Unless my whole cycle is going to be longer this month...?!

Hmmmmmmmmm. X

PuppyMummy Thu 11-Apr-13 06:57:21

hi again everyone!

af due for me on sat...

winterpansy Thu 11-Apr-13 22:42:41

gilly I thought I'd poas once more and then leave it for the rest of the cycle and I got a smiley face! Day 22 ffs! It was day 18 day week. At least I know that next month (If I'm not pg) then the dtd window needs to be longer. I'm hoping our efforts on Sunday, yesterday and this evening will hit the jackpot though grin

Any sign for you today?

Hey puppy Ooohh when are you going to poas?

gillywillywoo Thu 11-Apr-13 22:49:22

Hiiiiii oh that's good news for you! Finally!

Nothing for me though... I've compared all my tests since cd11 and the line was definitely darkest around CD16 and today is CD18 so hoping I O'd then but who knows?! The line was still no where near as dark and clear as last month though.

Carrying on with charting my bbt and waiting for a rise... Also carrying on with dtd and hoping I've either O'd already or I'm about to any day!!!!!!

Fingers crossed you will get your BFP this month! X

Hekkie Thu 11-Apr-13 23:36:31

I'm in! AF due around 24th/25th. Have been DTD on an every other day basis since last week and I think I ov'd yesterday, but will continue DTD just in case I'm wrong. Poor DH - the novelty is starting to wear off already!

Good luck lovelies x

gillywillywoo Fri 12-Apr-13 06:32:26

Hi hekkie! My AF/BFP is due the sane time as yours! smile
Good luck x

gillywillywoo Fri 12-Apr-13 06:37:22

Same not sane!

Still not sure if I've ovulated yet. All my apps and my own calculations say I should've O'd yesterday but been using clear blue digital OPKs and haven't had a positive all week! Cheapie OPKs just been showing different variations of FAINT lines all week hmm

Had some pains and twinges down there yesterday though so maybe I did ovulate and just missed my LH surge.

God knows! grin

PuppyMummy Fri 12-Apr-13 07:24:10

hi winter
afraid I don't poas! just wait for af to arrive. I find that easier to deal with!

however I am already getting the usual cramping so Im expecting her today or tomorrow. boooooo!

winterpansy Fri 12-Apr-13 21:27:42

Thanks gilly. I'm feeling very positive about things. Wouldn't it be great if we got our bfps this month around the same time? You too hekkie.

Here we go then...the agonising wait begins!

Oh puppy you have great restraint. Well, it's not over til she arrives so don't give up hope just yet x

Hekkie Wed 17-Apr-13 22:55:19

Huge apologies for lack of input since my last post. We were away for a wedding all weekend and I've been working away since Sunday eve :-(
Soooo I'm on my 1ww now. Been feeling very sore and bloated for the past 2 days but this could be to do with eating a ridiculous amount of food since Friday.

How's everyone else? X

gillywillywoo Thu 18-Apr-13 07:56:32

Hi hekkie!!! brew

Good luck to you smile

I'm not happy! Really my AF should come in less than a week but my temps are still low and pretty sure I haven't ovulated yet hmm (possibly ovulated in the last day or 2 as I had what I think was a positive OPK and some EWCM so maaaaaybe my temp will rise tomorrow)

So I'm either having a strangely long cycle or my luteal phase is verrrrry short. Last month my luteal phase was 12 days so don't know why it would suddenly drop?! Reckon my cycle is just going to be long hmm

Booooooo hmm

Mullin1982 Thu 18-Apr-13 12:07:36

Hi everyone...

I think I need some advice here if you kind ladies don't mind...today I am CD37 and 16DPO after coming off the pill in September last year my cycles have been all over the shop, according to my 'fertility friend' AF is due today, yet yesterday and this morning I have had brown sticky CM, a lot more today than yesterday, although its now 11am and it's vanished again, as it did yesterday... And still no sign of AF, I have been having some very very light cramps but nothing to complain about and tender boobs around the armpit area..I did a test this morning and got bfn?! I'm so confused?! Any ideas/advice would be most welcome thank you x

Hekkie Fri 19-Apr-13 07:31:15

Oh Gilly - I'm a newbie at all this so can't offer much advice about temping etc - although I'm sure I'll be an expert in a matter of months! Are you dtd as much as poss just in case you are ovulating late?

Hi Mullin1982, do you think you could be experiencing implantation bleeding rather than your af? I know it's piseible not to test positive immediately after missing your af. A friend got a positive result 4 days after she was due, so you may still be in with a chance.

I was an emotional wreck last night (I'm normally quite calm). Could be down to tiredness due to a heavy weekend and working week or could it be due to a change in hormones as af approaches? No idea - guess I'll find out soon enough.

Hekkie Fri 19-Apr-13 07:32:43


Mullin1982 Fri 19-Apr-13 09:52:39

AF arrived with a vengeance this morning so I guess that answers my question sad ah well.. Onto to next month.. Good luck all x

winterpansy Fri 19-Apr-13 13:31:58

gilly That's rubbish. Booo to long cycles. Hope you get some sort of resolution soon!

7dpo here and possibly imagining symptoms. Mostly extreme fatigue - tfi Friday grin

Hekkie Wed 24-Apr-13 07:17:07

Morning all,
So I've woken up with those pre AF feelings - mainly lower back ache.
Feeling pretty gutted if I'm honest :-(
