on 2ww... only 2dpo!(37 Posts)
Lol, nightmare isn't it. I can test tomorrow but I'm so used to bfn's I really can't be bothered this time. Just going to wait it out. I know when I ovulated this month so know af will be here Monday at the latest.
I am dpo 3 i know its taking forever lol do u have any early symptoms? X
I'm 7 days dpo (at least I think I am!) and driving myself absolutely crazy with the symptom spotting. I've had mild cramps (mainly on my left side) since Wednesday and I feel bloated, gassy, and occasionally sick. I don't know whether these are signs of pregnancy or nerves!
I know there's no point testing until the middle of next week at the earliest but I'm so tempted to. Believe it or not I used to be a perfectly sane person until we started ttc.
I hate the 2ww, possibly the worst point of the cycle. I'm nearing the end of the 2ww and driving myself mad desperately wanting a BFP!
I tested at 8dpo and got a positive(did it in the afternoon at m&s, so not FMU) but when i retested next morning i got a negative, i should not have tested at all but i am spotting so assumed it was inplantation bleed like last time(although that ended in mc at 10wks) am temped to test again this afternoon...somebody stop me please!
Hi Runaround - so sorry to hear about your MC. As you've already had unclear results you should try really hard to wait until next week before testing again. So far today I've been for a walk, visited my mum, and cleaned the house which really helped to take my mind off things. I was doing really well until the cramping started and now I'm back in crazy land again. I've never had cramps this early in my cycle before so I'm really hoping they mean something - I've only ever had them the day before and during AF. Thankfully DH and I are off to a comedy gig tonight so that's another distraction.
Anyone else experiencing symptoms during the 2ww?
I ov today so just entered 2ww, its horrible and Im such an impatient person.
Sorry about your mc runaround, I have had 3 before my 2 ds's. I bleed with all 5 pregnancies including my boys. I know it's ard not to read too much into it but bleeding doesn't necc mean anything. Fx for you/.
GoldenDaffodil - I had cramps from days 20-22 when I fell pregnant with dd. Thought I was getting an early af so bought a bottle of wine and a test to do before drinking wine just in case. I was pregnant. fx for you.
Thanks Pomme that's very encouraging. Four days to go until o can test - I'll be trying to focus on work until then.
Hello Golden. I am on 2ww. AF due on Friday/sat. I am also driving myself mad wondering if the cramping / stabbing pains I've been having on and off all week are implantation... It is a nightmare. I Am so desperate to take my mind off it that me and DH are going to Slovenia for the weekend.
Pomme - thank you for giving me hope that this really might be it.
Good luck to all.
It really helps to vent on MN and find other women in the same boat. Let's hope the cramping we've both been experiencing is a positive sign. I've certainly never had it before and it's definitely not as severe as my AF pains.
My AF is also due on Fri/Sat but I'm planning to test on Thur because I can't hold out any longer than then. It's good you'll be going away for the wkend - that will be a great distraction. Do you have any children already or are you ttc #1? We're trying for our first which makes the symptom spotting even harder because I've got no past experiences for comparison.
Good luck to everyone : )
Golden we are ttc#1, I am 35 but DH is 47. He doesn't have any DCs. I have been feeling so miserable thinking that this will be another month I won't be pregnant. I will be 36 in January so it feels like time is ticking by quickly. What about you?
More cramping now. I am convinced it's my period. But of course there is always hope. I have been feeling a bit bloated which I don't normally feel when I am pre menstrual but obviously this is a common pre period symptom for some.
I don't want to bring you down but I can help feeling that if I were pregnant I'd have other signs, like metallic taste, sore or itchy or tingling boobs...
I'm 28 and DH is 33 we are ttc#1 and I have PCOS so I always knew it was going to be a challenge - this is our 6th month of trying. I try really hard not to be disheartened, but like you I get the blues each time another month goes past without me falling pregnant.
The cramping I was experiencing last week and on Saturday has disappeared now, and I didin't get any spotting to back up my hope that it was being caused by implantation -so I'm much less hopeful of a successful month than I was last week.
Like you I've been feeling very bloated - although this has happended to me before and the only breast tenderness I can report is very occassional pain at the sides - not the heavy feeling or sore nipples that expectant mum's complain about. It's not looking good...
I don't think I can face another negative test at the moment so I think I'm going to hold off unless AF is late. I've bought a clear blue fertility monitor and plan to give that a go next cycle.
Golden - I think you are right not to test until AF is late. I am not planning to test until Monday but like you the cramping has gone without spotting (from what I have read spotting is NOT common) and I don't have pregnancy boobs either. Yesterday I saw an old school friend who has an 18 month old. My friend said she didn't have sore boobs until 6 weeks.
It's impossible to stop hoping! Fingers, toes n eyes crossed for us both
Sorry to hear that you have PCOS but take comfort from being 7 years younger than me. You could have 3 DCs by the time you are my age!
Hello, may I join you ladies?
I have no idea when or if I ovulated this cycle (first months of ttc) but my AF is due next week either on Thursday or Friday (I'm getting married that day!!!) so the plan is to do a test on honeymoon if nothing has happened by Sunday.
I was so excited about ttc and couldn't wait to start but know it's actually happening, it's just more waiting. I'm only 27, well almost 28 and H2B is 25, so really we should be quite fertile but I'm a worrier and paranoid that something is wrong with me in the reproductive department.
I guess there's nothing left to do but wait...I wish you all good luck!!!
Fingers, toes and eyes crossed indeed! I really feel like AF is imminent now but I never give up hope until she actually puts in an appearance! The worst thing for me is when the PCOS causes missed/long cycles (which happens every few months) becuase when that happens I can't predict when I'll be ovulating next. I'd love to have three DC's by the time I'm 35 but with things being the way they are I'll be eternally grateful just to have one. I really hope this is going to be your month.
Big congratulations on your wedding, I hope you have a wonderful day. I also really hope that your first month of ttc has been a success, but don't let it spoil your honeymoon if it hasn't. As you may or may not discover the 2ww opften feels more like a 2 month wait! It's a strange mix of hopeful fantasies about becomeing a mum mixed with the acute anxiety of symptom spotting and POAS addiction. My tip is not to test to early, not only will you waste money on tests, but seeing BFN's really starts to bring you down after a while. Remember that age is definitely on your side and that anything up a year is normal - taht's what I tell myself anyway.
Very best of luck to you both - keep me updated
Welcome MrsHuxtable, congratulations on getting married. have a wonderful honeymoon (somewhere hot?), enjoying ttcing and good luck. I second everything Golden has said re testing early and also want to say that the stress and misery is definitely not helping, so ENJOY this pre-parenting / newly married stage, have lots of sex and good luck.
Golden, I am so with you. Its the hope that I can't bear! Even though I have no symptons at all and I am sure AF will arrive tomorrow or Saturday, I can't help hoping and dreaming and working out what the due date would be.
Me and DH are off to Slovenia tomorrow. This was my idea to distract me from thinking about my period all weekend. However, I don't think my idea is going to work and it could be worse being sad and not making the most of the trip than just being sad at home. It is a nightmare. Please post and let me know how are you are feeling / doing. I won't be able to post from out of the country unless I can log on.
I wonder what the chances of all 3 of us finding out we are pregnant this weekend? Probably a lot higher than winning the lottery!
It's makes me really sad to think of you and DH going all the way to Slovenia for a miserable weekend. Try to throw yourself into exploring the sights - and avoid pharmacies because if you test and get a BFN your break really will be ruined. Persoanlly I find BFN's set me off a lot more than the acutal arrival of AF even though they both mean the same thing. I think the visual 'no' you get from a HPT is somehow harder to bear.
AF hasn't arrived yet but instead of being hopeful I'm now starting to worry that I'm going to have one of my long cycles becuase the PMS type feelings I had yesterday have disappeared. I'd been planning to hold off POAS until at least Sunday becuase this would make me technically late but I've just discovered that DH has invited friends round for dinner tonight, and as I want to have a glass of wine I'm going to test. I've only got Boots cheapies to use but if I am pregnant surely there would be enough HCG for it to show up by now?!
FX for you.
I'm ttc #2 and have the most random periods. I could be in the 2ww right now, or I could have just ovulated, or not even ovulated yet!
I go between 28 and 40 days - seen dr and she says as it's in the normal range I'm ok - don't think it's that normal to fluctuate 12 days!!
The latest of late would be 13th June (day 40) so have to wait until then - did 5 tests last month as didn't know when I was due and on day 40, BAM! If I'm on 28 day - I'm due AF this coming Wed.
I can talk! Maybe I wasn't on wifi last time I left the county...
Golden - if I were you I'd would have been
Cross with DH for inviting people over at that point
In the cycle. I do take my frustration out on him which us awful.
How are you? you have my sympathies re your long cycle. You too Kat.
Really REALLY tough.
I have brought tampons, nurofen and a test with me!
Despite me reading an article about how the ideal
Age to have kids is 28 in today's mail on the plane,
and getting really down, am ok and we're having fun.
AF is due tomorrow. I started feeling all hopefully
Because of the cramping we had last week and earlier
This week and was even trying to convince myself
I felt sick but I think that was all the travelling.
Meanwhile think I can feel AF cramps starting... DH and I won't be together for my June fertile days so that is going to make this
Months AF even harder.
Fx for you tonight golden
