ELR Wed 11-Sep-13 17:56:10

Don't know what happened to the last 2ww thread so I've stared my own, anyone care to join me?
I'm on cycle 2 trying for no 3 think I ovulated today af is due 25/26 Sep.

allchatnicknamesgone Wed 11-Sep-13 18:44:47

me too. i'm one week into the wait already. I'm due AF on 18th sept, but it's not always accurate. Not too hopeful though as I don't think we did it enough! Sorry, quite new, so don't know all the abbreviations. x

jaykay987 Wed 11-Sep-13 20:06:55


I'm dpo10 today. AF/BFP due Sunday.

I've got such a headache and feel really sick. Can't face diner - really want to go to bed early to curl up under the duvet as its freezing! I have to wait up to go collect DH. hmm

ExactlyWhat Wed 11-Sep-13 20:35:31

ELR, I'm your testimg buddy -not sure when ov'd but af due 25th.

Allchat - same as you don't think we dtd enough either so pretty sure wont happen but fingers and everything else crossed.

Hope these 2 weeks go speedily for us all smile

allchatnicknamesgone Wed 11-Sep-13 20:41:11

Hey Exactlywhat, I did use clear blue opk this month, so I did it around the right time, but not every day because on the 3rd day DH moaned that he felt like I was using him! That was me - off to bed early that night!

Fingers crossed guys - it's bloody horrible waiting and I'm trying not to even think about it!

DulcetMoans Wed 11-Sep-13 20:48:24

I'm in, due 22nd. Only just ov'd so no symptoms to spot yet even! Not that it will stop me...

ELR Wed 11-Sep-13 21:09:33

allchat exactly same thing happened to us by day 3 (lastnight))DH said there is only so much sex a man can take!! So we only dtd twice. That was sun and mon and I ovulated today I think. Soviet got fingers crossed that the little swimmers have stayed alive and have done their stuff!

allchatnicknamesgone Wed 11-Sep-13 21:20:52

We managed to do it the day before too, only because I had some cm that I associate with O, even though the smiley face hadn't appeared that day. Smiley face came the next day, so I definitely did it around the right time, it's just whether they do their job or not! I start cramping around a week before AF so even though cramps are a big pregnancy sign for me (had them really bad last time) it's also a sign for my period. So cruel. I'm sitting here will dull aches taunting me. I've told myself AF is coming to try and mentally prepare myself.

BTW can someone clear up which day you start counting from? i.e. if smiley face appeared on a tues, would that mean weds would be dpo1? My smiley face stayed 3 days this time (i'm not using the advanced one)

Thanks. x

jaykay987 Wed 11-Sep-13 21:25:48

hmm. that's tricky. Do you temp as well? bbt temps show the temp rise which is your ov day.
I have used CB opks for two cycles so far. I ovulated 48hours after the second peak day 1st cycle and on the second peak day this cycle.
Not sure how those only using opks tend to count.

allchatnicknamesgone Wed 11-Sep-13 21:33:32

oh gosh. So, even though I did it when I had my smiley face, i may have missed my actual ovulation.

Not charting temp's. Sounds silly because I'm on here writing about the 2ww, but I wanted to try and not get too caught up in it so I didn't want to put pressure on myself to wake up everyday. It's my 3rd cycle though, so I might see how I feel when AF arrives again. Also, my DH gets a bit funny about the science behind it. I think it puts him under more pressure.

I dtd on the 1st and 2nd day of smiley, but not the 3rd, so if I O'd 48hrs after the 3rd day, the swimmers will prob be dead in the water! Too hard to guess!

I'll just cramp for the next 7 days and try and get on with life!

ShesSoMean Wed 11-Sep-13 21:39:25

I'm on 2ww too! AF due around 22nd and this is my 5th cycle of TTC 1st baby. If it doesn't happen this month I'm going to invest in a fertility monitor to check that I'm actually ovulating. I used to get pretty clear signs of ovulation and now I just can't tell anymore hmm

Good luck ladies! This TTC thing is enough to drive anyone crazy!!

Cupcake1985 Wed 11-Sep-13 22:50:33

Can I join? I'm due af around the 21st. I think I ovulated on Saturday. I got a positive opk and side pain etc all on one day so think it was then. Dtd that day and on the thurs before so here's hoping!

Cupcake1985 Wed 11-Sep-13 22:55:24

Hi to a couple of people also on the September bus! biscuit

I've popped us six below, hope we have some bfp's smile

Jaykay bfp 15th
Cupcake1985 bfp 21st
Dulcetmoans bfp 22nd
Shessomean 22nd
Allchatnicknamesgone bfp 25th
ELR bfp 26th

jaykay987 Thu 12-Sep-13 06:02:24


Allchat- dont worry. Upto 4 days before ov and one day after counts as the fertile window. Sounds like you caught it.

She so- A cheaper way to see if you ovulate is charting your bbt. Decent thermometers (2 decimal places) are less than a fiver from Amazon.

I got BFN this morning. But it's only dpo11 so probably too early. I'm starting to think AF is on the way though.
FX this thread brings someone luck!

ShesSoMean Thu 12-Sep-13 07:58:12

Thanks jaykay. I have considered temp charting too. To be honest I'm not really sure what I'll do and I will have to do a bit more research if it comes to that.

Good luck for a BFP! Last month I went a bit nuts and tested loads as I was a couple of days late. I got a load of cheap preg tests from amazon which makes crazy testing a bit cheaper!

allchatnicknamesgone Thu 12-Sep-13 09:20:53

If I don't get BFP will definitely temp next month. Do you set an alarm every morning? I normally just wake naturally when DD walks in....

Last night the cramping was so bad it woke me up and I was considering getting up to take some pain relief. It just makes me mad because it can either be BFP or period - think it's more likely period as I only had light cramping with last pregnancy and not in the middle of the night.

Does anyone also get bad cramping about a week before AF?


jaykay987 Thu 12-Sep-13 09:29:44

Yep - Internet cheaply tests are definitely the way to go!

For temping - to get the mot accurate reading you are suppose to wake up by alarm at the same time every day. Apparently waking naturally can alter your temp. However, I refuse to set a 5am alarm on weekends to match my weekdays! So I decided to temp based on my normal daily cycle of sleeping/waking. This is an alarm 7days a week, but at a different time on weekends. I still clearly see a pattern so this works for me. I think it can easily get obsessive. I just want it to be as easy as possible! Sometimes I naturally wake before the alarm too (thought not often!).

I've got spotting again this morning - dpo 11. Tmi - weird almost black crumbs. Really weird. I'm fed up now. Just want AF to arrive so I can move into the next cycle. I have fairly long cycles, it feels like others on here almost lap me! (Must not get jealous, must not get jealous! wink)

I normally get bad period pains. Usually start slowly and then build quickly once AF starts. I've had terrible pains around ovulation this month. Not sure if its because Im using Agnus Castus, or if its just that Im taking more notice of my body. It was for a week before ov and a few days after. It's been intermittent since ov.
It's funny - some people get more pain than normal, which is a symptom. Others get less pain than normal - which is a symptom! How confusing can this ttc malarkey be?!

wispaxmas Thu 12-Sep-13 10:21:26

Hello again, I'm back!

ELR & ExactlyWhat it looks like we'll be testing around the same time.

I had a pos OPK yesterday morning and a temp rise this morning, so I'm going to be testing on the 25th!

ItalianWiking84 Thu 12-Sep-13 10:31:56

Hi all,
Can I join in?
I had my smile on the Clearblue normal digital ovulation sticks the 3rd and 4th and dtd the 30. of August, 1. of September, 3rd and 4th and the 8th.... Hope its been enough. I have no idea what day I ovulated, but because my BF works different shifts, we could not do it the 5th and 6th, because we only saw each other for like 10 minutes all together those days.
No symptoms tho at all sad
Would love to test the 16th because its BF birthday, but I am afraid its to early. BFP or AF is due the between the 17th and 19th.

DulcetMoans Thu 12-Sep-13 10:57:08

Updated the list with who I could see was missing!

Jaykay bfp 15th

DulcetMoans a bit funny smile lets hope he gets a delayed extra birthday gift the 22nd :D

jessieagain Thu 12-Sep-13 12:20:12

Hi everyone

I've got 8 days to go, testing on the 20th. Have symptoms at all.

Finished the last of my pineapple for breakfast so I hope that helped with a possible implantation!

allchatnicknamesgone Thu 12-Sep-13 13:56:09

jessieagain - pineapple? whats that all about? do things actually help conception?

CoffeeGuzzler Thu 12-Sep-13 14:01:59

Hello all, waves to fellow September bussers.

AF due on 14/15 depending on how I count from ovulation. Good point allchat. The counting dpo method is confusing to me too as I don't temp. Smiley opk on 31st and 1st.

Seriously tempted to poas today

allchatnicknamesgone Thu 12-Sep-13 14:23:25

I've decided to count 14 days from the second day I had the smiley face (i.e. next weds 18th)??? If I were to take it from my monthly cycle it would be on the weekend. My periods are not bang on and vary by a few days, so I think I O'd a little late and therefore I'm using that timing.

Does that sound right to you?

CoffeeGuzzler Thu 12-Sep-13 14:32:19

That's what I am doing too. 14 days from second day of smiley face ie 15th. Going by my last cycle af should have arrived yesterday. But I vary by a few days so who knows.

DulcetMoans Thu 12-Sep-13 15:14:31

I'd not heard the pineapple thing before either but I googled and apparently it helps with implantation! So I had some for lunch! grin

wispaxmas Thu 12-Sep-13 15:31:31

I'm so confused about OPKs..

Yesterday I did 3 of them, at 10am, 2pm, and 8pm. The one at 10am was positive, but the other 2 were quite clearly negative, and I was practically swimming in EWCM all day [grim]. The 2 days previous it had slowly gotten darker, and the 2 days before that it have been non-existant. So I figured I'd ov'd yesterday/last night.

This morning I had a temp spike and no more EWCM and I don't know why, but at 2pm I decided to do another OPK and it was very very positive! Again!! It went positive-negative-positive, is that possible?? Is it possible to have 2 LH surges?

I know I should just wait and keep temping to see if this morning's thermal shift was a fluke or not..

My chart, fyi:

jaykay987 Thu 12-Sep-13 15:43:57

Looking at you chart wisps Id say you ov'd last night. Keep temping - you need three sustained days high to confirm ov.

Not sure why you got a positive OPK again today. But Either way your temps and OPK results line up and you've dtd loads in your window.


jaykay987 Thu 12-Sep-13 15:45:43

Apparently it's only the core of the pineapple - so I never fancied that!

This month I went with the grapefruit juice pre ov and Brazil nuts post ov. I'm not sure if any of it is more than old wives tales..but it helps me think Im doing all I can! smile

internationallove985 Thu 12-Sep-13 20:10:52

I'll be in my 2ww wait from 14th. xx

Amymia03 Thu 12-Sep-13 21:46:45

Hello everyone,

Could I please join? This will be our third cycle, Af is due (if I have calculated correctly) on the 18th. I wanted to poas today as husband is working away from today, for 3 weeks, but I thought it best not to. This will be our second, our dd is 9, and is desperate for a sibling.

internationallove985 Fri 13-Sep-13 00:15:38

Hi Amy. Welcome abaord. xxx

CoffeeGuzzler Fri 13-Sep-13 09:09:42

Got BFP this morning. grin
May it be the first of many on this thread.

ItalianWiking84 Fri 13-Sep-13 09:50:30

CoffeeGuzzler Congrates

jaykay987 Fri 13-Sep-13 10:14:47

Yay! Cycle buddy pregnancy! grin
When you off to the doctors? Have you joined the May antenatal thread yet? When's your due date?

I threw away my FMU after getting a negative on an Internet cheapy. Not sure I can handle the disappointment of attempting to test without using FMU. I'll use a "proper" test tomorrow morning. I'm really hoping your positive is "catching"!

wispaxmas Fri 13-Sep-13 11:09:34

Good luck and baby dust jaykay, let us know tomorrow morning, we want more BFPs!

jaykay987 Fri 13-Sep-13 11:14:12

Thanks Wispa. I'll be sure to let you know given its occupying ever cell of my brain! (No idea how much work I will finish in normal hours today! I usually have productive Fridays as I don't want to work late!)

DulcetMoans Fri 13-Sep-13 12:16:54

Congrats coffee and jaykay! Great start to our testing time!

allchatnicknamesgone Fri 13-Sep-13 12:52:59

Congrats CoffeeGuzzler!!!! and GL for tomorrow jaykay.

I had such a bad night of cramping, I completely caved and just did a text and got BFN - I know it's way too early, but the cramping was driving me mad and thought that if my body is reacting then it must be producing the hormone.

Anyhow, I think it probably is just AF gearing herself up to be really horrible this month!

CoffeeGuzzler Fri 13-Sep-13 13:17:34

Thank you all!! Can't quite believe that I am up the duff!!

jaykay There is a antenatal May group?! Bloody hell. Nhs website says due date 23d May. Looked up star sign (don't believe an ounce of it though) and it's Gemini. I don't know a single Gemini person!!

keepswimming1 Fri 13-Sep-13 13:43:29

Congrats coffee

I'm Gemini smile

CoffeeGuzzler Fri 13-Sep-13 13:47:24

Thank you keepswimming. Angelina Jolie is Gemini too apparently. And Johny Depp. And Marilyn Monroe. Sexy baby!!

wispaxmas Fri 13-Sep-13 13:49:01

I'm a gemini, coffee. trust me, we're lovely grin

jaykay987 Fri 13-Sep-13 13:54:30

I'm a Gemini too!

CoffeeGuzzler Fri 13-Sep-13 14:22:10

Oh wow!! I do know a few geminis then..albeit virtually. looking forward to you guys joining me in the antenatal group. Saw Mrsmummytobe and Snoozy there. smile

wispaxmas Fri 13-Sep-13 14:39:10

How rubbish, though... if I manage a BFP this month (trying to tell myself it's a big if) I'll be on the as of yet non-existant June ante-natal group with a due date 3 days before my bday.

jaykay987 Fri 13-Sep-13 14:51:41

Ahh, Wispa - are you saying that's good or bad?

If I get my BFP anytime soon before AF comes my due date is three days before my bday too!
(Not sure how DH would cope living with two feminist!)

wispaxmas Fri 13-Sep-13 15:28:51

Rubbish in that we're all be split into different antenatal clubs, and then a mixed good/bad at the due date .. because chances are it would go late, and I'll be ridiculously over-pg and uncomfortable for my 30th bday. But then, I could potentially have a birthday baby! Amazing yes, but then also means having to go through labour on my birthday, and I'm just selfish enough to not want that to happen!

jaykay987 Fri 13-Sep-13 15:50:17

Hehe. Well don't worry. I think AF is coming, so my next due date is towards middle of June. So you won't be alone! smile

I'm (stupidly) annoyed. I had decided we would inform PIL and my parents in our Christmas card.

If we don't conceive next cycle - we won't be able to, as we won't have had our 12 week scan. Then if we are lucky enough to conceive in my November cycle, I won't want to tell PIL, but no idea how Ill get away with not drinking over Christmas at theirs!

Wow - I over think things! I'll be grateful if we conceive at all. I just wish I could control it! I'm such a control freak!

ShesSoMean Fri 13-Sep-13 16:25:18

jaykay I am exactly the same on the over-thinking thing!! I have ideas on when we'd tell people, how far along I'd be at certain events, when I'd need to tell work etc. unfortunately I've been thinking like this for the last 5 months! If it doesn't happen for me this cycle I'm torn between having a month off so as to be able to be bridesmaid for my best friend at a wedding 5 hours away at around the time I'd be due if i did conceive in Oct, or - keeping trying on the basis that it probably won't work anyway and if it does then baby comes before being a bridesmaid. I know this is all currently pure fantasy and pie in the sky but its so hard not to get caught up in it all!! I sound like a grade A nutter.

jaykay987 Fri 13-Sep-13 17:00:38

I'm out.

Off to sulk/cry/distract myself for three weeks until my next fertile windows starts. hmm

ItalianWiking84 Fri 13-Sep-13 17:13:53

jaykey sorry to hear, sending virtual hugs...

I am btw a Gemini too smile

ItalianWiking84 Fri 13-Sep-13 17:14:52

I am still hoping that I can test Monday and hopefully also get a positive so I can surprise my bf smile

ShesSoMean Fri 13-Sep-13 17:38:44

Sorry to read that jaykay. Best of luck for next time.

wispaxmas Fri 13-Sep-13 17:39:53

Oh no, jaykay!! So sorry to hear, but have come cake and wine and get back on that horse in a couple weeks' time.

Amymia03 Fri 13-Sep-13 18:06:16

Also sorry to hear JayKay. I'm really hoping for a positive result this month, as the next three months husband is working away and we will only have about two weeks together until Christmas.

CoffeeGuzzler Fri 13-Sep-13 19:13:50

jaykay sad.
Chin up. October will be the month when a sperm collides with an egg.

ItalianWiking84 Fri 13-Sep-13 19:40:06

Damn I feel like I have to throw up, tmi sorry, but so annoying to enjoy a Friday night burping, have bloating tummy and no appetite

Nottalotta Fri 13-Sep-13 20:57:01

Evening all, i am due af on the 24th but have only managed 2 ots of BD over my fertile window. Think i ov'd yesterday.

I too was thinking i could inform parentals in the xmas card and am poor tight enough to think it would mean that i wouldn't need to buy presents!! (any present will be totally overshadowed so not worth bothering surely?)

DulcetMoans Fri 13-Sep-13 21:54:10

Card was my plan too but it was my plan last year too so hoping I can see it through this year. Fingers crossed!!

wispaxmas Fri 13-Sep-13 22:14:53

I also thinking of the possible Christmas announcement.. I know Internet isn't for using real names, but my surname is Christmas, so there all sorts of options for a thematic announcement.. Photoshopping a Santa hat on the scan picture, getting H a shirt that says 'father Christmas' etc. I'm going a bit mad with ideas, really grin

jaykay987 Sat 14-Sep-13 07:19:40

ahh Haas! wisps you should have posted on ny crazy announcements thread grin
great name btw smile

DulcetMoans Sat 14-Sep-13 07:23:54

That is a fab connection there wispa! Hope it works out to be possible for you!

ItalianWiking84 Sat 14-Sep-13 08:51:14

Help!!! I need help... I took a super drug test this morning, more than 4 days earlier than my af/BFP and there is a very faint line in the test field.... But now I am concerned if I can count on it when I tested so early... Expected it to be negative and don't even know why I tested... My ovulation was the 3-4 so as you can see, it's way to early,.. Help....

jaykay987 Sat 14-Sep-13 09:00:00

Hi Italian. What type of test did you use? It's not too early. You could be dpo 9/10. Some people do get positive tests as early as dpo 7/8.


ItalianWiking84 Sat 14-Sep-13 09:01:42

I used the superdrug early pregnancy test which should be able to detect 4 days early

DulcetMoans Sat 14-Sep-13 09:07:14

Sounds good to me Italian. I'd say get a digital test to use in the morning though, to be sure. What a great bday present for you DP!!

wispaxmas Sat 14-Sep-13 09:14:25

Congratulations, Italian!!! Definitely not too early for a positive, though lots of people do get false negative, it's not possible to have a false positive (barring chem pg).

I would wait a couple days and test with digital. CBD aren't are senstitive to hgc than some early tests.

ItalianWiking84 Sat 14-Sep-13 09:15:27

Thanks dulcet, yeah have the clearblue digi as well and will use one of them Monday I think smile hoping that to be positive too and then have the best pressie for my bf smile

ItalianWiking84 Sat 14-Sep-13 10:38:10

Used the clearblue digital one just now, couldn't wait lol and it came back with 1-2 weeks pregnant smile
I am over the moon and over excited smile

jaykay987 Sat 14-Sep-13 11:03:53

Yay! You get to give our DH an early birthday present!

ItalianWiking84 Sat 14-Sep-13 11:15:53

Jaykay yes thanks, must be the best pressie even tho it gets delivered later lol

CoffeeGuzzler Sat 14-Sep-13 17:51:24

I've got 10 more days til af due. Dear lord this is by far the worst bit. Wish me luck!!

Alohomora Sat 14-Sep-13 22:12:37

Hello, I've just seen this thread!

I'm in the 2WW, well, -10 days to go. Have had twinges and pain in my left ovary area all day, I'm not amused, something better come from this discomfort!!!

wispaxmas Sun 15-Sep-13 10:15:21

I'm a day behind you two, but will be testing early like the insane person I am, from 9po. Who our next tester? I'm not going to try until next Friday..

ELR Mon 16-Sep-13 10:48:14

Got achey boobs and tummy ache.......

Karmalaa Mon 16-Sep-13 11:03:51

Hi all, can I join you guys? I'm in my first ever TWW. Going from temp charting etc I'm 3DPO.

allchatnicknamesgone Mon 16-Sep-13 13:56:14

I think I'm out. Just did a Boots digital and it was neg. Been cramping for so many days....Period not strictly due for another 1-2 days, but I think if I were preg, it would have detected it by now. I'm 13 dpo.

What do you guys think?

ItalianWiking84 Mon 16-Sep-13 14:07:12

Thanks ELR phoned the doctor today and had to do a urine test and then I can call up mid week again and then I think I will get a doc app... Not sure, since I still dont understand Scottish accent, so sometimes I just say yes lol

Amymia03 Mon 16-Sep-13 14:17:23

Congrats Italian. I shall be joining you as I could wait and poas this morning. I got pregnant 2-3, so I'm guessing I am about 4 weeks already. So excited. Good luck everyone

ItalianWiking84 Mon 16-Sep-13 14:23:32

Amymia03 yaaaaaaaaaaaai congrates :D

wispaxmas Mon 16-Sep-13 14:36:44

I wouldn't give up just yet. Check this out:

Apparently 14% of these pregnant women reported getting a negative at 13dpo!

wispaxmas Mon 16-Sep-13 14:37:01
allchatnicknamesgone Mon 16-Sep-13 15:58:34

ah thanks wispa. I found that myself when I tested negative, but I think that's a pretty small %. I'm telling myself AF is just around the corner, as i want to get this month over with now. Feeling completely deflated and shit.

Congrats though Amy and Italian and soz Jaykay. It's a pretty hard thread to be on, when the BFP's start rolling in!

Alohomora Mon 16-Sep-13 17:40:41

Italina , Amymia congratulations!

I have to admit I'm getting my hopes up this cycle - I'm 7 DPO, I've had weird ovary pain over the weekend, I've had a raised temperature for a few days now, am whizzing like a horse... I'm probably setting myself up for a disappointment, though.

Amymia03 Mon 16-Sep-13 18:21:27

Thank you. Getting a doctors appointment is proving to be impossible. Going to call again in the morning. My fingers are crossed for everyone that's testing in the next couple weeks

ItalianWiking84 Tue 17-Sep-13 15:31:56

Amymia: know the feeling,'my doc wanted me to give a urine test and first when that comes back positive will they book an appt for me

ShesSoMean Wed 18-Sep-13 12:51:18

I think I have just had a very faint positive.... Came home for lunch decided to do a test and left it to decide my fate whilst I made lunch. Just went back to check and I THINK there was a very very faint line. I am pretty convinced I'm wrong / insane. Going to have to check again in the morning with first pee. I'm not sure I can wait that long! Until then I will spend my afternoon convincing myself that I'm seeing things whilst trying to concentrate at work. I'm not sure why I'm even writing this, I'm pretty sure I'll be proved wrong when I do the next test.

ItalianWiking84 Wed 18-Sep-13 13:04:05

ShesSoMean crossing my fingers for you dear

ShesSoMean Wed 18-Sep-13 13:11:44

Thank you!! Not sure how I'm going to get through this afternoon. I'm trying not to get my hopes up but I've done about 10 - 15 of these tests (internet cheapies!) over the last few months and none of them have looked like the one today.

jaykay987 Wed 18-Sep-13 15:04:55

sounds exciting! no idea how you are concentrating this afternoon!

allchatnicknamesgone Wed 18-Sep-13 15:04:59

Hi all - can I jump on the wagon for the last few days? 10PO today but POAS this morning and nada. I'm not feeling it but until AF actually turns up I will cling to the slightest hope. Did have a contraceptive implant until January (had it put in straight after the birth of DS1) and before that I was regular as clockwork. Not any more though. Was really hoping for less than a two year gap between my kids but as of this month, that's not going to happen.

ShesSoMean Wed 18-Sep-13 17:55:14

Just done another 2 tests. Still not as conclusive as I'd like. Have drank quite a lot of water this afternoon so pee probably very diluted (sorry TMI!!!). Just want it to be the morning so I can do a proper test. AF still not due until Sunday so I'm being very impatient.

wispaxmas Wed 18-Sep-13 18:35:27

So excited for you, shessomean!

ShesSoMean Wed 18-Sep-13 18:40:10

Thanks wispa! Not knowing for sure is driving me even more insane than the normal 2WW craziness!! Have been symptom spotting a lot: very tender boobs, mild cramping, lower back pain, bloating and stomach pain, mild acne which has just popped up. Could all be premenstrual symptoms. I really can't wait to know for sure!

ShesSoMean Thu 19-Sep-13 06:27:08

Well I've now tested 5 times and I don't think there is any denying that I have a little lodger on board!! smilesmilesmile BFP line on test much stronger this morning but still not as dark as the control line. After EXTENSIVE research / obsessing overnight it seems like a faint line is normal. I really can't believe it has happened! I think I am 3+5 which I realise is very early days so I'm trying very hard to control my excitement. I guess the next step is to phone the GP and see what they suggest.

Thank you to everyone who replied yesterday and good luck to you all with getting that BFP and beyond! grin

Congratulations! Exciting morning for you!

dontsqueezetheteabag Thu 19-Sep-13 10:14:40

Can I hop on this bus? I think I ov yesterday or the day before. Been dtd like mad to see what happens.

This is our first cycle and first DC we are trying for. I have been feeling cack yesterday and today with odd twinges in my tummy (probably just my imagination!!!)

Testing on 2nd October...........

ELR Thu 19-Sep-13 10:24:17

Congrats shessomean is it your first?
I had really dark line with dd but very faint line with ds so its normal to get different levels of faintness!!

ShesSoMean Thu 19-Sep-13 11:00:46

Hi ELR! Yes, this will be my first. I phoned the Doc this morning and was told I need to collect a pregnancy pack which contains the details of the midwife for me to contact. I'll try to head down later today to do that. So exciting!!

wispaxmas Thu 19-Sep-13 14:06:12

Congratulations! How many dpo are you (or have you not been checking)?

Karmalaa Thu 19-Sep-13 15:12:32

OK i'm super confused and a bit disappointed, It was our first cycle so I didn't know when to expect ov really and tried to time DTD every other day leading up to what i thought was ov time. I was sure from charting & increased temp that I ov'd on CD16 but then i had a huge temp spike and so think I ov'd on CD18 so we might have mis-timed out dtd... if i ov'd on CD18 we dtd on ov day and 2 days before.
its so nice reading everyone's updates, i just don't know what to expect this month for me!

ShesSoMean Thu 19-Sep-13 16:59:16

Thanks wispa! I think (although I've not been keeping track) that I'm currently 11 DPO. That is based on counting backwards from my AF due date by 14 days.

Really good luck to everyone else! smile

Karmalaa Sun 22-Sep-13 13:59:03

all quiet here, any news?

wispaxmas Mon 23-Sep-13 09:41:01

Evening ladies, last AF was 26/8 AF due yesterday/ today.... Tested and faint line..... Could it possibly be a bfp?? Been ttc #2 1year+

MrsLadyL Mon 23-Sep-13 17:51:59

kArama we are in the same bout O later than expected we think

wispaxmas Mon 23-Sep-13 18:13:03

Congrats! Link to a photo? Load it onto How many dpo are you? What kind of test did you use? My internet cheapies showed a shadow and a negative this morning, but a first response was positive, and a CBD showed pregnant 1-2, so if you used an internet stick, you should get a better quality test!

MrsLadyL Mon 23-Sep-13 18:43:48

Well I'm on CD29 I posted some pics on here today have a look. My hubby wants to wait to use a CB digit t

MrsLadyL Mon 23-Sep-13 18:44:28

To get a pregnant or not he can see the line but both a bit scared

MrsLadyL Mon 23-Sep-13 18:57:21

Iv posted a pic to that website you suggested

wispaxmas Mon 23-Sep-13 19:40:43

Is yours the internet strip on the toilet paper here?

wispaxmas Mon 23-Sep-13 19:43:57

If you think you saw a line, use a digital. I was going to wait an extra few days to use one, but caved today and glad I did.

MrsLadyL Mon 23-Sep-13 19:47:34

No. Mines are ones with pink lids with number 1&2 on them

MrsLadyL Mon 23-Sep-13 19:48:56

wispaxmas Mon 23-Sep-13 20:06:38

Those are definitely lines!

MrsLadyL Mon 23-Sep-13 20:30:55


wispaxmas Mon 23-Sep-13 20:50:10

Congrats to all those getting BFPs!

We've just started trying for our fifth (my third and his third - we both have two boys from previous marriages). Only had my Mirena taken out yesterday so no idea when I'll ovulate as no period since December!
