When I got pregnant with my DD, I remember feeling like my period was coming on. I'd had 1 cycle where we didn't conceive and I was so disappointed that I was getting my second period. Only it didn't come and I was pregnant. I had the typical pains, migraine and short tempter that the time of the month usually brings - enhanced by my disappointment.

So although getting pregnant first month is unlikely - you don't know for sure yet.

Thanks orange lily, is that a forum type website?? Xx

johnandkymberley Sun 12-May-13 22:09:49

Thanks Catherine, so I may be in luck?! Did you have sex on you're ovulation etc?? Xx

1Catherine1 Sun 12-May-13 23:02:52

I think we were DTD every other day, or at least every 3 days when we were a little tired. I didn't want to wait for ovulation and then miss our chance, anyway, I read something about quality of sperm and that lot. And apparently every other day is best when ttc.

Although, the book I was reading was written by a man wink

I haven't read the rest of the thread but just wanted to reply to say the month I got pregnant I had period pains the same as usual. It ain't over til AF actually comes. Good luck! wink

johnandkymberley Mon 13-May-13 06:37:55

Hahaha!!! Yep I read that too, although one week we did it once in 4 days rather than in 2/3 but the rest if the month it was that and it was 4 times around ovulation, 1 before, 2 during, 1 after

AF best not arrive!!!


johnandkymberley Tue 14-May-13 14:53:33

Okay everyone I have had some very light bleeding at 7 days past ovulation, when can I take a test?? Xxx

seatfor5 Tue 14-May-13 16:05:15

If your due Saturday really the earliest you would be likely to show anything up on a PG test would be Wed/Thursday I would say test Thursday at the earliest to save disappointment maybe wait until Friday! Tesco's test seem to be quite good and then first response but a lot more money if I were you use the cheapie until your AF is due on Saturday x It is possible to fall in your first month I have 3 ds the first was a "surprise" the second took 3 months ans the 3rd one month am now trying for my 4th and am only on cycle 2 AF arrived today x

johnandkymberley Tue 14-May-13 18:52:40

Oh no seatfor5!! Fingers crossed for next month smile

I'm going to wait till sat morning I think, as hubby wants to be here too

What about the clearblue digital? The one that tells you how many weeks u are?? Xxx

Relax... Honestly, you may be incredibly lucky and get pregnant in a month or two (many of my friends have, sometimes twice!), but it could be a longer hail instead...

... It took me 14 months including an early miscarriage to get pregnant with DS (now 3.25). We are now 15 months (including one very recently failed IVF cycle) TTC DC2 and still it pregnant.

Hopefully you will be a lot luckier, but you need to manage expectations armed relax. You can do everything "textbook" and it still might not work straight away I am afraid.

Good luck smile

Should read "and still not pregnant"

johnandkymberley Wed 15-May-13 15:50:07

Still no sign of AF don't know whether I'm going to test tmoz morning, what should I do?!? Xxx

alicebear Wed 15-May-13 17:34:30

Test tomorrow! Nothing to lose apart from the cost of a test. If BFP fantastic. If BFN the games not over until AF arrives or BFP later on. BFN just means not enough Hcg in your wee for BFP so until you get a BFP or AF you just never know! My last pregnancy AF was 5 days late before my BFN became a BFP! Fingers crossed for you.

1Catherine1 Thu 16-May-13 20:50:01

So now I need to know, did you POAS? Any news?

johnandkymberley Thu 16-May-13 22:58:01

Hahaha Catherine!!

I chickened out! But will be doing it for deffo tmoz morning. I promise! I have got a really busy weekend so tomorrows the time!! Will keep you posted xxxx

alicebear Fri 17-May-13 07:45:22

Well what's the news?! Fingers crossed.

1Catherine1 Fri 17-May-13 08:44:47

Remember - best to test in the morning!

Januarymadness Fri 17-May-13 09:13:22

First month would be very quick.. But I have to add for me implantation HURT. Like really bad period pains.

johnandkymberley Fri 17-May-13 12:03:42

Yep I had pains all over last weekend-hence I posted this and thought it was my period!!!

Tested this am and was not pregnant but I'm going to buy a traditional test today as I'm nipping into boots anyway just to see if there is a faint line, digital tests are not as sensitive are they?? I've read that on loads of websites?!? Xx

johnandkymberley Fri 17-May-13 12:09:07

Then if there is no sign of a positive line I will have to wait for AF then I suppose?!

chipmonkey Fri 17-May-13 12:53:51

Am I the only one who noticed that FriendOfDorothy corrected OP's grammar but then said "you isn't".
Pedantry fail!

FriendofDorothy Fri 17-May-13 13:27:29

Hehe no I noticed that I had done that too but thought I had got away with it!

Typing on an iPhone is a pain in the arse sometimes!!!

The difference is that I knew I had got it wrong wink

alicebear Fri 17-May-13 13:55:04

Sorry it's BFN today but maybe just too early. Just a waiting game now for AF or test again in a few days if she doesn't turn up.

Beccadugs Fri 17-May-13 14:52:11

Good luck Johnandkimberly!

I know what you mean about being totally gutted the first month you try. Although, intellectually you know it is very unlikely to happen straight away you still hope! I think when you have the first month of it not happening straight away it's like a loss of innocence.

I think after the first month it'll get easier.

johnandkymberley Fri 17-May-13 16:39:13

Beccadugs I hope you are right!!! I have been and bought first response normal tests not digital and will test one of them when I get in, then if still negative which it bloody well be!!! Ill leave it a week and test again of AF isn't here!!

It's just really worried me where the slight pink blood came from as I thought that was implantation and that happened on day 8 po so it would b in the time frame???

Also noticed the grammar but too polite to say lmao!!! Xxxx
