So I'm on my "2ww" starting to turn in to a nut job lol. Ttc #2 had a crazy month last month with AF 10days late never happened!! Anyone want to join in this horrible waiting game?? smile

Katnisscupcake Fri 05-Apr-13 19:32:06

Me please!!! I am 6dpo and have been for a progesterone test today (bloody typical that 7dpo falls on a Saturday so I am having another test on Monday aswell). I decided to get the test done as I've started spotting from about 9-10dpo and then having full flow on 14dpo. Which can sometimes be a sign of low progesterone.

Hoping that I may fall pg this month and then not have to worry about it too much!

Wattage88 Fri 05-Apr-13 19:47:15

I'm only 5dpo! It's torture.... What's the earliest I can test? X

Katnisscupcake Fri 05-Apr-13 19:49:48

If you're really desperate you can test from 10dpo but after several months of disappointment, I tend to leave it until about 13dpo... x

Wattage88 Fri 05-Apr-13 19:51:51

I might weight till AF is due then. Last month was an awful blow, been off bc around 8months but only been focusing on the last 2-3 months. X

Wattage88 Fri 05-Apr-13 20:12:52

Wait X

LoveWine Fri 05-Apr-13 20:22:17

I'm also in the 2WW and this waiting game s killing me. Not sure where people get the strength to do this for months and sometimes years. I guess some don't really have a choice.

Hopefully, it won't be too long for everyone! AF is due on April 11th although she tends to be late some month.

Good luck to all!

Wattage88 Fri 05-Apr-13 20:29:05

I'm due AF 14th aaahhhh it's horrible. After last month I'm trying not to think about it too much but can't lol

LoveWine Fri 05-Apr-13 20:33:31

At least if AF shows up, I can safely share a bottle of red with my husband smile

Wattage88 Fri 05-Apr-13 20:41:23

Ha yea that's the only good thing about it smile

LoveWine Sat 06-Apr-13 11:00:37

I just had some brown/pinkish spotting and AF is due soon. Arghh that must be her showing up early! Blah

Snowylady Sat 06-Apr-13 11:25:10

Hi there again Wattage, we meet again :-) in the same boat...again. AF officially due today - no sign. GRRR!

Snowylady Sat 06-Apr-13 11:26:36

I think I've just won the record for saying 'again' (must proof read before posting!)

twentythirteen Sat 06-Apr-13 18:01:56

Hi Wattage, I remember your ridiculously long cycle, good luck! Ooh, Snowlady how exciting you'll be testing soon! Any signs?

I'm terrible in the 2ww, I've so far had two dreams of being pg (not normal). I'm addicted to poasing as well, I find all the negatives in the lead up to af help me to not be so blown by its arrival and since I'm having these dreams I'll need extra help accepting it when it comes. I don't know what dpo I am today as I had 2.5 days of positive opks but it's somewhere around 7/8 dpo. I'll poas from tomorrow. I had a low blood sugar moment today, haven't had one in ages so of course reinforced my thinking I'm pg. And I'm an emoitonal wreck. Been invited to a wedding and struggled not to cry for the joy of it. Oh dear. blush

Wattage88 Sun 07-Apr-13 15:18:37

Ha we do meet again! I hope we all get BFP this months smile

Wattage88 Sun 07-Apr-13 15:20:25

Snowylady have you tested today? X

LoveWine Sun 07-Apr-13 21:07:48

Ladies, I'm out for this month...AF showed up yesterday, 5 days earlier!! Good luck to the rest of you, I'll be hoping May is month!

NZMummyof2 Mon 08-Apr-13 03:40:01

Hope you don't mind me joining you all. DH and I have (sort of) been ttc for a couple of months now. I say sort of because we haven't been properly trying no ovulation tests or too much monitoring of dates. I am desperate for 3rd baby (DD is 4.5 DS is 2.5). AF is due on Wed (that will be CD 28), I am not always super regular but last few months have been between 26-30 days.
I am crampy (comes and goes), occasional pain in boobs, sometimes a lot of cm (feels like wet pants sorry for tmi), had headache last night, been waking up with dryest mouth and been waking up thirsty int he night, can smell everything and have been having heartburn all the time!! (i had terrible heartburn in last 2 pregnancies).... however I am almost 100% certain it is all in my head! It is so nice to see so many woman also stressing about every little thing!
Oh and did a test on Fri and it was neg

Wattage88 Mon 08-Apr-13 08:19:07

Lovewine aw no way!! Yes may will be you're month.
NZmummyof2 I would say wait till AF due date then test one day missed? I'm not really sure what to advise as my AF was AWOL last month and I had every symptom too, but it arrived 10days late x

twentythirteen Mon 08-Apr-13 08:22:55

Sorry af got you love, boo!

Hi NZMummyof2! Fx, they sound like good signs!

My af is due around Friday. I'm not terribly regular but it has been 26 days long the last 4 cycles. I think I'm around 9 dpo but hard to tell as had pos opk's for 2.5 days. I have no symptoms at the moment.

gemma277 Mon 08-Apr-13 10:09:52

Hi all i'm also in 2ww. Bfp due on friday too CD33 usually between 33-40 days long so will see but the wait is crazzzzy! So busy yet so bored all i want to do is find out....

Wattage88 Mon 08-Apr-13 13:40:26

If my charting is correct this months I'm 8 DPO X

sparkle9 Mon 08-Apr-13 19:19:24

I'm on cycle day 23. I don't really know how long my cycles are because I've only had one proper period since coming off the pill. This took about 6 weeks to arrive after my usual pill free bleed. I am charting temperatures but can't see a temp spike to indicate ovulation yet this month. Last month there was an indication of ovulation but we didn't BD around then so this is the first month of properly TTC. I had 3 days with a tiny bit of spotting on cd20-22 so now I'm obsessed that this could have been implantation bleeding. It's probably all in my head but when would be good to test?

agendabender Mon 08-Apr-13 22:07:32

Can I join? AF due 14th or 15th, first month of just going without contraception and seeing where it takes us, still breastfeeding DS 2 1/2 years old. Over the weekend breastfeeding has become increasingly uncomfortable and my nipples are tingling a lot. However, all of this could be put down to the usual weirdness of breastfeeding a toddler.

Wattage88 Tue 09-Apr-13 07:39:38

My AF due around 14th too so in the same boat. Exciting times ;)

mangomom Tue 09-Apr-13 10:13:26

Yes. I am in the horrible 2ww confused

Purple37 Tue 09-Apr-13 18:11:14

Can I join in? Ttc number 3 at 38, now on 9dpo, veiny sore boobs and cramping but not holding my breath!!!

WakeyCakey Tue 09-Apr-13 18:34:42

Is anyone testing on Friday??
I'm not a fan of these 2ww's!
Symptom spotting today, have very erect nipples (have been very confused all day as I'm not cold and they are showing through a bra,top and jumper!)
And crazy dandruff that has appeared overnight!
I have never had it before in my life!!

Anyone else getting strange symptoms?

musiceverywhere Wed 10-Apr-13 22:09:39

first mn post... AF due this friday and am determined not to test until next week! Hmm do we think I can hold out? (If AF doesn't turn up that is!) Had spotting and cramps sunday-tues (approx 9-11 DPO) and still a little now all which is v unusual for me. Boobs were sore, but bit better now.
Really hoping for bfp, although have only been ttc for 2 months. So hard not to test early, but I don't want to waste the money (or emotions). Hope everyone else doing ok.

Wattage88 Thu 11-Apr-13 21:00:47

My AF due Sunday. Don't think I feel anything this month? Maybe iv told myself not going to be thy lucky after my AF being 10days late last month! Soul destroying sad

agendabender Thu 11-Apr-13 21:10:26

wattage it sounds like a complete pain. I did a test this morning because I was going to see my doctor and thought it would be useful to know, but of course it was negative. Had to do it with clingy toddler in tow, hope he doesn't tell anyone that mummy wees in a cup!

Disappointingly the doctor suggested that if I'm not pregnant this month we wait for two months in order to change some medication I'm on, so really hope I am. Don't want to stop trying really!

Loving the smell of DH's beery breath this evening, which was a real feature of my first pregnancy...

Wattage88 Thu 11-Apr-13 21:43:33

Have you been trying long? Iv got a slight pain in my left ovary just now??

agendabender Thu 11-Apr-13 22:15:04

Me? No, this is our first month without contraception, but we've been waiting for other things to fall into place for more than a year.

Wattage88 Fri 12-Apr-13 06:31:39

Iv been off bc since sept I'd say... Not properly been ttc till this year. Mostly last 2 months. Didn't think it would be so hard well I know it takes the average couple almost 2years. I'm guessing my daughter was a miricale baby lol x

Wattage88 Fri 12-Apr-13 08:44:00

Well there was an experience iv never had before! Just washing my daughters face and was overcome with nausea!! Wasn't sick but very close. Never had that symptom before smile

twentythirteen Fri 12-Apr-13 15:51:08

Can't believe I haven't checked in since Monday! No bfp's? Where are they???

I'm due now, the last 4 or 5 months I came on today cd 26 so am just waiting, lots of knicker checking but bfn's so far. I don't feel pg and have no symptoms. Boo.

Wattage88 Fri 12-Apr-13 16:13:40

I'm due on Sunday! Few strange feelings today that's i never had before. But I really don't want to test again ever!!! Ha

agendabender Fri 12-Apr-13 22:57:54

Sounds positive wattage ! I think AF has arrived three days early for me. It's never happened before, but started bleeding a little today. Feel very low, especially as I though I didn't have to deal with it until next week.

musiceverywhere Sat 13-Apr-13 11:07:14

Well, 1 day late now.... Still not going to poas, heard too often ppl getting bfp really early, then mc really soon afterwards and I don't want to get all excited if it's not going to 'stick'.
Also don't want to waste a test until i'm properly late. Will try and hold out!
How is everyone? Coping with the wait? (I should really be out in this lovely weather!) smile

Wattage88 Sat 13-Apr-13 14:47:35

Well I'm feeling a little crampy today like AF is coming sad

agendabender Sat 13-Apr-13 23:13:17

Has it, wattage? Mine hasn't really got started. I have just had some pink in my mucus since Friday morning, and it's pretty much clear now. I don't know whether it's worth hoping it was an implantation bleed or not. Anyone ever had one?

music sounds like this might be your month!

musiceverywhere Sat 13-Apr-13 23:37:46

Thanks agenda Ashamed to admit I caved! Think being at work all week was taking my mind off it, but a whole day at home and I couldn't hold out.
BFP! shock I'm really pleased, but trying not to get too carried away as I know its so early and its my first.
In my defence of early testing after I said I wouldn't- I did use a test that was one month past expiry date. Found in back of drawer from uni days I think blush so I didn't waste money as such. From what I've googled, I don't think an expired test would give a false positive.
So I guess the spotting last weekend was implantation, tmi- it was mainly brown, pink on one visit to the loo and continued over a few days. I also had dull cramps, but I just knew it wasn't AF as my cycle has never been shorter than 28 days.
Yikes! Hope all you ladies are coping with the wait and enjoying weekend.

agendabender Sat 13-Apr-13 23:57:54

Congratulations music! That does sound like what I'm having, but I'd like to wait until Tuesday to test. DS has his parent-and-toddler swimming lesson on Monday, so that's pretty much guaranteed to bring on AF...

Wattage88 Sun 14-Apr-13 07:45:26

Congratulations music! I'm out this month ladies sad

agendabender Sun 14-Apr-13 22:19:27

See you in two weeks, wattage.

Wattage88 Mon 15-Apr-13 07:58:15

You sure will. Have you tested yet agenda??

mazzie40 Tue 16-Apr-13 11:56:57

Hi ladies. I am also in the 2ww. Wishing everyone lots of baby dust smile.

littlepinkfizz Tue 16-Apr-13 12:46:18

Just marking my spot....

AF due 26th..
Been ttc now since mc in July. Not feeling confident but wil be anxious up until AF arrives. Praying she will do one this month and for the next 9 ...


ladylashes Tue 16-Apr-13 15:18:01

Hiya ladies! Room for one more? :-)

I'm ttc no.1 - currently on dpo 1/2 on 1st month trying. Thought cbfm wasn't going to show a peak for the first month, but a big surprise when I got the peaks on day 23/24....much later than expected! Very early days for me but going a little crazy already! I'll have my fingers crossed for all of us :-)

Wattage88 Wed 17-Apr-13 10:21:38

Looks like we are all turning in to crazies haha. That's AF done one today so round 3!! Heading towards a 2014 baby now haha X

ladylashes Wed 17-Apr-13 19:34:09

Good luck this month wattage!

P.s - how do you do smiley faces?! Is it smile? Sorry, I'm a newbie!

ladylashes Wed 17-Apr-13 19:34:25

I guess it was that! Haha!

Wattage88 Mon 22-Apr-13 09:44:10

Ok so iv started the dreaded opk this month after discussion with the hubby. I think iv got the jist of how they work.(strips off eBay) lets see if this give me a better chance or understanding.... X

Wattage88 Mon 22-Apr-13 10:24:08

Ps ladies iv posted a pic and will do as I continue to test. Be great to hear you're feed back to help me to success!!

memphis83 Mon 22-Apr-13 10:36:11
