Me and OH decided we WILL get pg either Jan or Feb... (We hope) had symptoms already this month.. Yippee!!! And bad ones at that.. The usual... Sore boobs frequent peeing, extremely veiny boobies, headache, nausea etc and this is all only 10dpo! Come along for the journey my fellow ttc-ers brew
What's your TTC stories/symptoms ? First or second baba? Support & love x

I'm in, thinking positively!
Only Cd 4, preterm labour and loss in October so starting the new year as positively as we can and throwing ourselves into it, hopefully not throwing any backs out in the process! :-)
Is this your first? Have you used anything in particular this month when trying? Keeping my fingers crossed for you! X

spaceyboo Mon 04-Jan-16 22:42:22

I'm hoping I get my BFP this month/next month. Am waiting to test in 3 days. Doing all the symptom spotting etc.

fridaylady7 Mon 04-Jan-16 22:43:44

I'm in for Feb! Good luck to everyone! Hope we all get BFP's! X

emanne Mon 04-Jan-16 22:47:20

Hi all of you!! Seacrown - sorry for your loss flowers fingers crossed for a bfp this month or next!! This will be my first yes smile exciting!! I hope I'm not just giving myself false hope with these symptoms though.... sad trying to keep positive!
Not used anything at all.... Only really been trying for a few months, I'm thinking of starting folic acid as I've heard that is helpful! X

emanne Mon 04-Jan-16 22:48:38

@spaceyboo when was your conception date (or possible date) mine was around Boxing Day so I'm in the 2ww!!! sad I tested tonight (whoops) of course it was negative!! Ad not due until 10th/11th so long way to go yet, impatient hmm good luck and hope for a bfp! X

emanne Mon 04-Jan-16 22:50:27

Fridaylady7 hi!!! Hoping for a bunch of bfp's!!! Fingers toes and everything crossed grin is this your first? How long have you been trying? (If you don't mind me asking) and do my symptoms sound like PG or am I just being a moaner... Sorry I've never experienced preg before so don't really know what's pg symptoms or just an illness lol blush x

Seacrown Mon 04-Jan-16 22:55:19

Emanne-with my first, I had no symptoms other than a raised temperature. If you've got a thermometer, I fully recommend charting. I felt no difference whatsoever other than my temperature so might be worth checking it out! grin

emanne Mon 04-Jan-16 23:00:23

OH noticed a raised temperature on me today, felt burning earlier but now I just feel slightly hotter on the inside than usual which is odd. I will definitely look into the charting smile
6 days until AF due 8 days until I take a test (if it's late) doubt I can wait that long... hmm I hate waiting! 70% of me thinks I just am coming down with something a sickness or a bug but the rest of me thinks baba... Trying to focus on the latter!!! X

Seacrown Mon 04-Jan-16 23:05:14

Go for it! Generally anything over 98f is considered elevated but you get a better understanding of what's high for you with a full cycle of charting! And if you want to test early, first response tests claim to do up to 6 days early and generally seem popular on here! Fingers crossed, keep us updated! X

fridaylady7 Mon 04-Jan-16 23:05:16

Hi Emanne!
Yup this is my first time ttc and for #1. I think I had a chemical a couple months back, but who knows? !
I haven't experienced pg but your symptoms sound positive to me for all its worth. I really hope you get your bfp this month!!
Next fertile window for me is end of the month. Hoping for a BFP, somehow I don't think I'll be one of the lucky ones that gets pregnant the first month trying!

emanne Mon 04-Jan-16 23:11:10

I have become obsessed with googling pregnancy symptoms - I'm far too early along to even have most of them but I can't stop myself - psychological pregnancy or what!! hmm I hate not feeling right within myself - it's like when you have a morning of just feeling cr*p but it goes on for days!! sad ahhhhh I may just order a bulk of tests (probably a bad idea but to kerb my peeing on a stick addiction. Lol) I will Deffo keep you updated!! I will feel silly if AF arrives on time... Would be just my luck! Last month AF was over a week late and I got excited though tests BFN... then low and behold along pops AF ruining my happiness lol oh well there's always another month! 2016 will be our year girls x

emanne Mon 04-Jan-16 23:13:55

My next fertile window is also a few days before the end of the month - time to get busy!!! Haha! I have had a few Evap lines - false hope !!! I've only been trying for 2/3 months! The only thing that's making me think I'm just coming down with an illness is the headache/migraine I've had all day since yesterday afternoon...not sure if it's an early PG symptom or not?! I hope you get your bfp, you could get pg in your first month who knows!!! grin x

spaceyboo Mon 04-Jan-16 23:21:33

@emanne - Mine should be approx 28th. Period due on the 7/8 (I have irregular cycles but have consistantly had 28-29 day cycles over the last 3 months). Waiting is so hard. I'm determined not to test early tho - have wasted so much money on those blasted tests!

emanne Mon 04-Jan-16 23:25:13

I sometimes have irregular cycles too but recently they seem to have sorted themselves out! Yes the waiting is the worst part!! Especially waiting to test right by AF - so nerve wracking thinking AF might appear when you least want it too sad sad

Hi, can I join in? I'm ttc with #2, dd is currently 8.5 months! Think I've missed my window this month after 1st af since pregnancy. So fingers crossed for Feb :-). Last time it took 7 months though. My only pg symptom was a blocked nose for no reason last time. Pregnancy rhinitis. Nobody ever tells you that symptom but it's a genuine thing!

emanne Mon 04-Jan-16 23:29:36

Of course, the more the merrier!!! smile ahhhh congrats on your first baba!!! If I am PG (fingers crossed) will be my first!! Excited grin don't want to get my hopes up too much though..
But I know something is up with my body, and I have a slight blocked nose which is more annoying than anything else lol! I'm on my 3rd month TTC (not much I know) hopefully bfp soon!! X

Demoiselle Mon 04-Jan-16 23:32:06

I'm in!
Hey all, hoping for BFP's all round!

I'm nearing the end of my cycle and hoping for the best! Last cycle I really thought there would be a BFP had majority of the symptoms but AF showed up!angrysadThere was plenty of chocolate consumed!

Idiot I am have been reading about early pregnancy symptoms... And I don't even have any! I swear I am my own worst enemy.hmm

Baby dust to allthankssmile

spaceyboo Mon 04-Jan-16 23:34:50

I have a blocked nose/sore throat but could be due to a cold. Really hope it's not tho grin

emanne Mon 04-Jan-16 23:35:10

Hi Demoiselle!

I'm the same - convinced I'm pg most of the symptoms only 10dpo though.... Driving myself mad obsessing over this! Lol if AF appears when it's due this month for me there will be a lorry load of chocolate consumed!!!! Worst feeling ever when you're determined for bfp then the lovely AF arrives. sad
Hoping for bfp's for everyone! Yay! X

spaceyboo Mon 04-Jan-16 23:36:05

What did you take to sort out your irregular cycles? Mine seem to have improved with Vit D megadoses (for an unrelated problem) but the GP doesn't want me to keep taking it.

emanne Mon 04-Jan-16 23:36:44

@spaceyboo lol I'm the same with the cold thing. My head is pounding but no sore throat or blocked nose (that I would class as a cold) which is making me think I'm just unwell sad but I never get headaches and when I do they only last an hour or so... This is a 48 hour!! Please go away headache sad fingers crossed for bfp for you x

spaceyboo Mon 04-Jan-16 23:38:21

Fingers crossed for you too. Hopefully we both get good news!!

emanne Mon 04-Jan-16 23:38:24

Absolutely nothing - when my period first started they were all over the place - luckily they sorted out all by themselves! Sometimes I still am a week late for no reason - my first few months of periods EVER I could go months without having one lol strange! Hopefully you can find something to sort yours! X

nuggles Mon 04-Jan-16 23:43:46

Good evening! Can I join in too?
Ttc our second. First was conceived first month of trying and now been trying for 6 months and nothing.
I know that's not a long time - Mind you still bf my son, periods are totally irregular and having sex is last thing on our minds. Feels more like a chore this time round.

We will get there in the end 😀
