Hi, I'm guessing I'm now in the 2WW as had positive OPK yesterday and the day before. Is there anybody that has their BFP due around the 20th and that has just started their 2WW.

Would be great to talk to stop ourselves going bonkers! What have you done this month to ttc? Anything different?

I have used OPKs and have followed the smep plan. Also drinking pineapple juice which apparently makes you produce more Ewcm and I'm taking pregnacare.

Joining! BFP due 19th - based on my longest cycle so far.
I've used OPK's for the first time this month. Been taking vitamin C & D along with my folic acid. Got DH on the vitamin C and Wellman Conception. Coming to the end of my folic acid, so considering buying the his and hers conception. Hopefully I won't need to though and we'll get BFP's!!
Not heard that about pineapple juice. May add a glass to my morning routine.
How are you finding OPK's and SMEP? Is this your first month of trying both? x

Squeakybeaky Wed 05-Feb-14 13:58:01

Hi Bobo. It's my second cycle so have been trying everything. I like doing the OPKs, gives me something to do. I don't drink anything from 3.00 and do my test at 6pm which seems to work well for me. I'm quite enjoying the smep plan, I'm a bit of a control freak and I like having something to work with if you know what I mean.

What day did you get your positive OPk?

Bobo13 Wed 05-Feb-14 14:06:33

I got my +OPK on Sunday night. I had a lot of cramping and nausea on Monday, a bit of cramping yesterday and none today, so think I ovulated on Monday.

Cnix Wed 05-Feb-14 14:08:38

Just in the 2 ww. BFP due 12 Feb. Have quite a short LP though. Been taking vit b6 this month to see if it makes a difference. Also our efforts has been hampered this month due to DH illness. Couldn't DTD on first +opk :-(. Considering trying SMEP next month. Though not sure I've the energy for it though TBH! Good luck with your BFPs

Hi ladies hope you don't mind if I join!

I hoping for a bfp on valentines day..I have been using opk and also ladytimer app which is brilliant! We have been trying for a around 3 months but only really just worked out when I'm ovulating and when Af is due, plus OH was very ill for the first month so don't really count that! The last few months I have been bding after getting positive OPk but this month we have done it the day before, day of and day after, hopefully this will be our month! Is this everyone's first ttc? X

Hi! I just started the 2ww too. BFP hopefully due on the 19th. Used opks for the first time this month and got my first positive on Sunday evening. Think I ovulated yesterday.

Nice to have people to share the agonising wait! (Hi Bobo!)

Squeakybeaky Wed 05-Feb-14 20:49:48

Hi maeanne. I think we are very similar in our cycle this month. I got my positive on Sunday too and think I ovulated yesterday too. Guess we are 2dpo tomorrow then, yay

Bobo13 Wed 05-Feb-14 20:59:43

Hopefully this 2ww will go quickly!! And end in bfp's for all of us! (Hi maeanne smile)

maeanne Wed 05-Feb-14 21:09:52

Yep, identical cycles!

I don't know if I can stand the excitement. The next two weeks will drag so much.

I'm not feeling particularly hopeful though if I'm honest. Not sure we have done enough.

Bobo13 Thu 06-Feb-14 08:17:27

Oh, I try to talk myself out of feeling overly positive every month, but this month I'm fairly hopeful. Fingers crossed OPK's will do the trick, although if they don't I think I'll be doing SMEP religiously next month!!
Are any of you girls trying to change your diet or watch what you're drinking whilst TTC??

maeanne Thu 06-Feb-14 09:34:59

Bobo, I don't drink much anyway (think I've had about two glasses of wine since Christmas) so no change there.

I am trying to eat sensibly but no major changes. I lost over 4st on slimming world 3 years ago though which I have (mostly!) kept off. In an ideal world I'd like to lose another stone before I get pregnant... but I want a baby more!!

What about you?

I'm tempted to try SMEP next cycle too. Not sure DH will keep up though!

Bobo13 Thu 06-Feb-14 14:00:10

I have to socialise quite a lot with work, so it's been quite difficult saying I won't drink, but since Christmas I've been making a conscious effort to cut back.
I wouldn't say I'm making too many differences to diet, as I eat fairly healthy anyway.
That's amazing weight loss...well done you!
I think the trick with SMEP will be to try and not have everything become too clinical......could be difficult! Ha ha!!

maeanne Thu 06-Feb-14 15:41:16

Definitely Bobo! wink

Bobo13 Fri 07-Feb-14 08:49:45

Oh I promised myself I wouldn't do anymore symptom spotting, I'd just get on with things. At DPO 4 I swear I feel like AF is about to start, feels like I'm having really mild cramps confused. It's horrible as I know it's most likely all in my head! Anyone else getting this??
I'm sure my quest to not symptom spot will not have been aided by me spending last night deciding which prams I'd like to look at!! Lol

EmberElftree Fri 07-Feb-14 11:21:57

Hi Squeeky & all also on my 2ww!

Positive OPK on Tues. and temp spike of 0.6c this am so let's hope it's a sticky one and temps remain high.

Feel a bit sick but also have a cold and probs reading too much into the nausea so just have to wait...

Fab weight loss Meanne congrats grin fingers crossed for everyone x

Squeakybeaky Fri 07-Feb-14 11:29:44

I am trying not to symptom spot this month and just go with it. I'm on 3dpo today so feel it would be impossible to feel anything yet anyway smile welcome emberelftree good luck to you! X

EmberElftree Fri 07-Feb-14 12:00:47

I know I've turned into a total nutter - must not symptom spot!! Thanks Squeeky and to you too x

maeanne Fri 07-Feb-14 12:51:30

Thanks Ember smile Fingers crossed for you too!

I've been crampy too Bobo - quite pinchy cramps which is different to the usual dull ache. Don't know if that is good, bad or nothing at all! 4dpo today so still too early for implantation... Gah! Wish I could stop thinking about it!

Squeakybeaky Fri 07-Feb-14 21:51:24

Wish I could stop symptom spotting too. I'm only 3dpo today and I have sore boobs which is very weird. Mustn't think about it, lah lah lah

impatienceisavirtue Sat 08-Feb-14 01:24:44

AF due 22nd here - so am still in fertility window and I'm already counting down days until testing... Now in about month 8 of trying I think

impatienceisavirtue Sat 08-Feb-14 01:25:24

DrewsWife Sat 08-Feb-14 01:59:53

Squeakybeaky Sat 08-Feb-14 07:13:54

Of course you can join! The more the merrier! I really hope all your symptoms will be true this month impatience!
