Can I join and mark my place?

Boyle1884, ttc #1, 26, af due 24 dec, cycle 1

First month off BC for me so unsure when ovulating or if af will arrive on expected date!!!

toohardtothinkofaname Mon 15-Dec-14 07:25:11

Marking my place! 3dpo here & massive dip. Hoping it's fallback rise & not confirmation of not ovulating.

I swear, having to wait until the next day to confirm is a right pain in the...

Marking a place, although af might be on its way (wasn't due til Friday) and I might be heading straight for Jan!

Marking my space, thanks for the new thread MaGrat!!!

I'm in. Still waiting news. Apps are saying I'm in my 2ww but temping suggests I am still waiting to ovulate :S So if I have a cycle as long as last months I might be out till January confused

BeauticianNotMagician81 Mon 15-Dec-14 11:42:13

Marking my place.

7dpo and still no symptoms. I'm not hopeful for this month. Creamy cm which is different from last month but I'm sure not completely unusual following ovulation. Also heartburn but I never get that as a symptom until much later so probably just over indulgence.

DizzyNorthernBird Mon 15-Dec-14 11:54:05

I'm still here! Reckon I'm probably out for December and have already got a seat reserved on the jan bus, but will still cling on to the tiny glimmer of hope that I might have managed it this month! Think I might be in the tww now....actually I have no idea though fblush fhmm, still getting to grips with my new found awareness of my cycle and its signs and symptoms!

BeauticianNotMagician81 Mon 15-Dec-14 12:04:54

Dizzy I've no idea really either. I'm not even completely sure on when af is due but I think 25th. I stupidly decided to just try and dtd in the middle of my cycle around about when I thought ovulation due rather than temping and using opks.

DizzyNorthernBird Mon 15-Dec-14 12:33:28

beautician that's probably a good idea to avoid opks because I'm totally confused.

Ok, so I had 4 days of ewcm last Tuesday-Friday with a final small amount on Saturday. As I've said in my previous posts, got neg opks on Tuesday and Thursday. Due to a stressful week I wondered if my body had gotten geared up for ov but then didn't. No ewcm at all yesterday, pretty much as dry as the Sahara. As far as Iwas concerned, that was me out. Dtd tues and Saturday but assume as this was at the first and last day of ewcm it would be unlikely to be of much use.

The ovia app, which has been tracking AF since May and ov symptoms since sept, has my fertile window as starting yesterday and finishing this Friday. So, just as a last ditch attempt to see wtf is going on, I've just done a test expecting another neg but I seem to now have what looks like a pos?! Second line being as dark if not darker than test.

What do I do now? Surely if ewcm has gone then I've missed the boat? Annoyingly because of me and DP's opposing shifts today and me being out tomorrow night I can't even dtd just to make sure fangry.

Anyone got any ideas as to what is going on?!!

BeauticianNotMagician81 Mon 15-Dec-14 12:53:11

What cd are you on and how many cd do you have on average. I'm not convinced on the opks as I'm sure io missed ovulation last month. I know it's really basic and might not work for everyone but when I've got pregnant before I've just dtd according to mns ovulation calculator and it's worked out. So that's what I've done this month.

alien11 Mon 15-Dec-14 13:03:14

Hi can I hop on please ? Cd 31 here...... Last cycle was 35 so sure AF will be here soon, bfn on tests couple of days ago.

DizzyNorthernBird Mon 15-Dec-14 13:06:49

I'm cd20 and average about 35cd give or take.

I'll probably continue using the op sticks I'm just hoping it takes a while to get the knack of them. But I've spent most of the weekend swotting up on 'tcoyf' and have all these signs and symptoms swimming around my head so no wonder I'm confused! Great book though, definitely worth a read!

If the simple approach works for you beautician then defo stick with it, all I've done is work myself into a bit of a tizz about the whole thing lol.

BeauticianNotMagician81 Mon 15-Dec-14 13:35:03

Possible you are ovulating then. I did on cd20 last cycle according to opks and I had a 35 day cycle. Usually 31. But I think I missed ovulation so I think it sounds like you did ovulate when originally thought. It's all so confusing. Throw Christmas shopping into the mix and my brains frazzled this month

lalalemon Mon 15-Dec-14 17:41:34

Argghhh this is driving me insane!

11dpo got a very feint bfp on frer
13dpo got a feint bfp on frer and bfn on cb plus and cb digital
Today 15dpo, got bfn on frer but wasn't first morning wee like the other was middle of day after I'd been shopping and had done a couple of wee's in the morning!

Got another frer to test again in am, still no sign of AF but not feeling so optimistic now sad

CoffeeTwo Mon 15-Dec-14 18:26:04

Place marking. CD24 and 4th day of flashing smiley. Actually getting really cross with this now. Most people would have ovulated 10 days ago. In a year I'll only get 9 or 10 cycles. I'm tired of waiting. Sorry for the moan.

Purplelilly Mon 15-Dec-14 18:27:40

Could I add my stats please smile

29, Ttc#1, 9 cycles. BFP due 29/30th December.

Congratulations everyone who has already got their BFP. Enjoy your special Christmas! Fingers crossed for all those waiting!

Purplelilly Mon 15-Dec-14 18:30:28

CoffeeTwo, I was told that it is normal to have up to two months without ovulating a year. Do you have very irregular cycles?

I really hope that this is your month, a BFP for Christmas smile

CoffeeTwo Mon 15-Dec-14 18:53:08

Thank you Purple, my cycles this year have been between 34 and 41 days. I did conceive DS with long/irregular cycles so I'm fairly hopeful I can do it again. I just get frustrated with all the waiting around. Don't we all!

Fingers crossed for a lovely NYE bfp for you smile

Rainy34 Mon 15-Dec-14 20:58:59

hi everyone i am either 7 or 8 dpo, i found yesterday and today i feel the need to wee all of the time, does not sting or sore, it is like pressure almost, really hope i am not about to get a urine infection

ninjabeer Mon 15-Dec-14 21:26:02
