Hello there 2 wwrs, anyone else get that excited tingly Xmas eve feeling down below while waiting?? Every time someone mentions babies, pregnancy or children my stomach turns.
Anyway, just wondering.... Although I know we're supposed to Dtd even other day/as much as possible.... Is this still the case during the 2ww? Was thinking of going DP some 'time off' lol.... But if people suggest otherwise, I'll get back on it!!

I know what you mean Frogchops.

A BFP this month means a Christmas or New Year announcement.

That would be just lovely.

Almost cracked and POAS earlier on but managed to restrain myself. Only 9 dpo but don't think can hold off much longer! Gonna try to wait until Saturday. Having half a cider tonight at the pub quiz. What are you ladies doing about alcohol in the 2ww?

frogchops Tue 06-Nov-12 21:03:45

I'm not a huge drinker but in any case I feel so sick so alcohol isn't really bothering me. I think because anything fizzy is giving me heartburn, is why I don't really want it. I just this second thought about Poas but I'm only about 3dpo, so a ridiculous idea!! I'll be a wreck by 9!!

Decided to just have the odd drink if I fancy it. This TTC lark could be a very long process and being teetotal is only going tokay it harder. Pretty sure I've had some mild twinges/cramps over the last few days, or am I just imagining it hmm

happylass Tue 06-Nov-12 22:34:54

tokay wtf?? To make!

Hi all,
I'm out sad AF has got me. First since July as have had 2 MC. I am trying to focus on the fact that it's good to have a period and will hopefully help sort out my body. Still gutting though. Anyway onwards and upwards. Day 1 again!!!
Good luck to you all x

BraveLilBear Wed 07-Nov-12 09:58:53

Oh BabyJames sorry the witch got you. Maybe she'll tuen out to be a good fairy, and help things, but still. Sucks. x

happylass Wed 07-Nov-12 11:49:59

So sorry baby that's rubbish. Have a glass or two of wine. Fx you get your BFP next cycle.

bakerbakerfairycaker Wed 07-Nov-12 12:24:21

Sorry to hear that babyjames. Hopefully next time xx

I'm more and more convinced my line was an evap. It was like a shadow for ages and I think I was staring so long it only went pink after 10 mins.

All tests since then have been BFN (one FMU clear blue CI the next day and one tesco one last night).

Still feeling crampy, cervix feels sore to the touch. I have IBS which flares up near AF time.

Can't this be a sign of something wrong? Can being on the pill for 12 years, and all of my reproductive life, mask any problems?

I have very light periods. I think I need to break my internet.

RaspberrysAndIcecream Wed 07-Nov-12 13:21:00

So sorry babyjames

That witch is a bitch!!

Think she's about to get me 2!! I've started spotting, just waiting for it to arrive in full force so I can get on with the next cycle.

baker - step away from the internet! If you cant resist please please use reputable sites such as, or NHS choices.

What are you worried about being "wrong"? Firstly let me reassure that being on the pill definitely does not affect your fertility in the long term. Yes, it can take a few months for your cycles to settle down when you stop taking it, but it doesn't reduce your fertility. Also IBS is a pain, but doesnt affect your fertility.

Periods are a variable affair - light, heavy, long, short (just like people!). If you are having a regular monthly cycle roughly 21-35 days, then that is absolutely normal. Very irregular bleeding, passing lots of clots during your period, having cycles much shorter than 21 or longer than 35 days, bleeding midcycle, or bleeding/pain after sex can be markers something is "wrong" and is worth going to see your GP about.

Your cervix can be very sensitive - why do you think dilating it during childbirth is so painful! Different women have differently sensitive cervixes, and poeple with IBS tend to be very aware/sensitive of their "insides". If touching your cervix is really very painful (throughout your cycle), and causes you lots of pelvic pain, (or you get deep pelvic pain on sex) that is also worth going to see your GP about as it may be a sign of Pelvic inflammatory disease. It just being a bit sensitive is normal though (it wasnt designed to be poked!)

And remember. The AVERAGE time it takes for a woman to get pregnant if having regular, unprotected SI is 5 months. That means half of normal people take longer than that. Around 1 in 7 couples will not be pregnant at 1 year, but more than half of them are pregnant by 2 years (ie have no "problems" with their fertility).

Hope that helps smile I know its really hard to be rational when in the 2ww and loads of hormones are sloshing around to try and make you a bit paranoid - we've all been there!

llamaface Wed 07-Nov-12 19:13:14

and have a wine babyjames and raspberries. Sorry that it hasn't been your month sad

I'm really confused atm (Day 11 po)- lots of breast tenderness especially when I poke them, feeling a bit sick on and off probably because i've scoffed all the leftover halloween chocolate, increased CM but also some back pain and pelvic heaviness like AF is on its way. Why does time go so sllllooooooooowly.... Must resist urge to POAS....

Hi I am also hunkering down for the wait. I am ttc#1 and on 3 cycle and trying to get to grips with it all. Got a positive opk Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and now "imagining" all sorts of twanging going on down below which really can't have much to do with anything! My attempts to be relaxed about it are not fooling anyone smile Btw what does POAS stand for?

bakerbakerfairycaker Wed 07-Nov-12 23:05:34

Thanks Llama. You speak so much sense. I'm quite sure I'm out for this month now anyway. Normal AF Symptoms starting up.

What I meant with the pill was (bearing in mind I was a late starter, periods at 15, went on the pill at 16), they use the pill to treat some hormonal problems and problem periods and the such. Can being on the pill from the start of your reproductive life hide problems?

I mean what if someone had something, that is normally diagnosed early on after puberty due to the issues it caused and is normally treated with the pill or some such but that person was already on the pill so it was being treated without them knowing and masking symptoms.

I'm not thinking that could have happened to me, I was just pondering earlier.

happylass Thu 08-Nov-12 07:32:57

So I cracked and tested early. BFN of course. Now im telling myself it could just be too early. Why couldnt I just have waited arrrrrgh!!

llamaface Thu 08-Nov-12 10:08:49

How many days po. do you think you are happy ? i'm sorely tempted to test too, but if its negative that doesnt help!!

happylass Thu 08-Nov-12 11:06:04

llama I had my only smile on CB OPK early on Sunday 28th Oct followed by some serious OV pain as I was going to bed that night. smile was gone again the following morning. Based on that I think I'm 11dpo?? So probably too early to test. When will I learn?!?

LauraSmurf Thu 08-Nov-12 18:49:06

Hi all,
I am so sorry for those with evil AF or BFN's. I'm currently confused. My AF not due until Sunday. I am like clockwork, always have been. Well except once when I was 3 days early and it turned out I be implantation bleed with DD! I have just found some blood when I went to loo.

So confused and scared to be hopeful. It took 2 years to concieve dd1 surely I can't get it first time this time?

I think I'm over thinking!


LauraSmurf Thu 08-Nov-12 18:53:30

PS - greenlizard POAS means pee on a stick (preg test)

happylass Thu 08-Nov-12 22:02:29

Sounds promising Laura!! When are you going to POAS?

LauraSmurf Fri 09-Nov-12 07:08:55

Tomorrow morning was the plan, but now have to go to MIL overnight tonight. So not the plan angry

llamaface Fri 09-Nov-12 08:57:32

So i caved and tested this morning at day 13 po. There was the faintest pink line ever after about 6 mins - bfp or not? Going to get another test on way home- which ones are most sensitive?!

happylass Fri 09-Nov-12 10:53:10

A line is a line llama!! FRER is very sensitive. Good luck and keep us posted!
