So here I am beginning the 2 week wait after MC the last 2 cycles. Lets hope it's 3rd time lucky for me! Anyone else about to start the count down ?

I hope so but not getting my hopes up, cramps seem worse today. I got some at 5dpo but it went away and now at 9 and 10 dpo i'm really crampy.

Oh and I cried at some lady who lost her house to Sandy and said it was nothing after loosing her grandson last year, she managed to find hid pictures in the rubble.

I don't cry at strangers misfortune, I have ASD and can't cry at the misfortune of people I care about most of the time. (I cried at a cancer advert with the woman in a wedding dress wanting her mum about 10 years ago - reason never found, lol)

Crossing EVERYTHING right now (expect the legs, thats counter-productive).

Thanks ladies!

Know exactly whar you mean with confusing symptoms baker. Why oh why do early pregnancy symptoms have to be the same as pms?! My breasts are sooo tender & depending on my (wildly erratic) mood this means either i'm def pregnant or af is definitely on the way.

Fx for us all!

Meh, so cramping got the better of me and I peed on the second stick in the pack, I was going to wait until wednesday at the earliest.

I swear I can see a line when you tilt it to the light correctly, well more like a shadow.

Probably just wishful thinking, evap or something but.... oh please let it be!

bakerbakerfairycaker Sun 04-Nov-12 17:43:45

Ok, I used found a used stick from last cycle in my draw (rank I know but it was still in its pouch) I remember the bathroom being cold so I legged it back to the bedroom before reading it.

When I compare the two todays definitely has a line.

Stick baby. Stick Stick Stick!

EchoDragon Sun 04-Nov-12 19:50:33

happylass Sun 04-Nov-12 20:50:34

Keeping everything crossed for you baker!

bakerbakerfairycaker Sun 04-Nov-12 22:09:52

I'm going to test again tomorrow with FMU, is frer really the best? i used a tesco own brand today.

llamaface Mon 05-Nov-12 08:20:04

Any news baker? fx

BraveLilBear Mon 05-Nov-12 10:23:59

Baker you never can tell - like BabyJames says, crampy can be our friend!

Think I will just have to lurk and cheer you guys on from afar... My hormones must have been jiggered post early mc. I ovulated last night. Mittelschmerz.

So I won't be testing til the 19th now. Grrr.

Fx for some BFP action soon for everyone else though!

bakerbakerfairycaker Mon 05-Nov-12 10:49:44

I've only just woken up, couldn't sleep last night.

Off to the shop, god I'm dying for a wee now.

padster75 Mon 05-Nov-12 11:09:22

Very new to all this, nothing like this was around when I had DS (15). Now on 2nd DH, TTC #2, 15DPO, POAS errrrr well AF due today and so far she is a no show.

Had cramping all last week, some really sharp stabby efforts on Wednesday (have no idea how many DPO it was, I think about 10).

We shall see. GL everyone and please bare with me while I get to grips with all of this, not even sure I have posted in the right place confused

bakerbakerfairycaker Mon 05-Nov-12 12:18:23


Shop all out of frer, so got a clearblue with conception indicator. It took sodding ages to decide. I dont like em.

AF due on sat/sun so I'll just have to wait it out.


BraveLilBear Mon 05-Nov-12 12:31:53

Sorry to hear that Baker but probably still too early - I think it has a low accuracy 4 days before AF due, which gets higher every day until AF due.

My inner jury is still out on CBCI - used them last time but wasn't sure. Liked the black and white results though.

littlepinkfizz Mon 05-Nov-12 12:50:21

Stupidly tested myself at 10 days PO and not e run with fmu...BFN ? Really disappointed though. Know how you are feeling baker

happylass Mon 05-Nov-12 16:56:43

Sorry to hear about the BFNs but like Brave says its probably too early. Fx for lots of BFPs in the next week grin

babyjamesblackberrycrumble Mon 05-Nov-12 17:12:37

I second what Happylass said. Probably just too early and those hormones wouldn't show yet either way. I am sooo tempted to test but after MC last 2 cycles I am also very scared. Hi there Padster welcome and good luck.

frogchops Mon 05-Nov-12 17:59:54

Anyone know what's going on..or a guess...
Having come off the pill and assuming tht I'd have a normal 28 day cycle, I Dtd like crazy around cd14...I'm on cd16 now and cramping reeeeally bad. However the cm has gone (but it was stringy and white on cd14)
Basically I duno know whether ov was cd14 ish due to cm signs, or today due to cramping signs. Can u get cramping after ovulation?? Can't be implantation surely this early??

BraveLilBear Mon 05-Nov-12 18:07:01

Hi frogchops, coming off the pill is 'all bets are off' territory - it can take a while to settle back down to reality, several months in many cases.

Plus, the withdrawal bleed isn't traditionally seen as a proper period (because the body hasn't ovulated so therefore it can't be, I guess).

I get a very sharp, specific cramp when I ovulate, so it could be that I guess, but honestly, it just sounds like your body's working itself out again. My first few cycles after the pill were all over the shop. They sorted out after about 3-4 months for me, but everyone's different.

No clue about cm though, I'll have to refer you to the TTC experts!

LauraSmurf Tue 06-Nov-12 09:14:03

I'm on CD28 of a 32 day cycle, It's driving me mad! I just want to test. It's so hard.

I WANT TO KNOW!! Sorry, I just needed that, can't say it in RL so I hope you don't mind the rant!

RaspberrysAndIcecream Tue 06-Nov-12 09:52:03

Rant away LauraSmurf!!

I'm on cd33, now AF is officially late, & another BFN this morning. sad And I've got a bit of a stomach bug sad

RaspberrysAndIcecream Tue 06-Nov-12 09:53:44

Sorry about all the other bfn's, hopefully it's just to early for a +!!!

RaspberrysAndIcecream Tue 06-Nov-12 09:58:52

frogchops the first cycle off the pill is a bit of a minefield. Some say you're more fertile, but I don't think you can really look at ovulation etc because none of what's happened before has been a real period iyswim.
My first cycle off the pill was a bit odd, bit of a breakthrough bleed that was just like an implantation bleed (according to all discriptions I've read) & then my period came 2 weeks later. So 5 weeks after stopping the pill was my first AF. I started day counting after that.
Good luck. smile

bakerbakerfairycaker Tue 06-Nov-12 13:10:16

Yes frogchops, I came off the pill, had my breakthrough bleed. My first proper period came 32 days after my breakthrough bleed. My next one 29 days after that.

I am assuming I have a nice 28-29 day cycle and my body is still adjusting.

worriedmum100 Tue 06-Nov-12 13:16:47


Can I join in? TTC DC#2 since August. Had a WTF cycle last month when for no apparent reason my usual 31 day cycle became a 36 day cycle so I went through all the the "no AF but BFN" stuff which was horrible so those of you going through it this cycle I know how you feel!

So, I don't really know where I am now or when I will test. I am on CD21 today. We just decided to DTD EOD from CD10 onwards this cycle and so far we've managed it! I was having a horrible time at work over the summer and was very stressed/lost of lot of weight etc but things are much better now and I hope being less stressed at work will help.

Fingers crossed for everyone!
