6DPO and going crazy in the TWW... Anyone else ;)

Gosh I am going slightly nuts!!

This is my third month TTC after a miscarriage in November, OPK confirmed peak for two days last week and I swear I've been having symptoms yesterday/today - I had symptoms around this time when I was pregnant so am really hoping it's not in my head! And definitely feels different from other months when I've ovulated and AF has come along...

So as I'm sitting here eating my second day's worth of pineapple... Figured it can't harm - I heard chopping it up into five and eating it for five days can help implantation, I started wondering how other ladies are getting on smile

I am also hoping for someone to stop me going crazy! I had a strong word with myself this morning about POAS as other months I've tested randomly only to be disappointed (had a horrible situation last month with a false positive, double checked with two other tests that were BFN) so I guess I'm also a little nervous so will be doing two at the same time (if I last) to 12dpo (who am I kidding I will so be POAS on Friday!)

So who's for joining me smile and if your just lurking and TTC then I wish you good luck!!!

Fx for your bfp penguin! I didn't know about the pineapple, but if you're enjoying it can't do any harm as you say!

I'm TTC cycle #1 and due AF Friday. Been symptom spotting like mad but could as easily be first cycle off the pill so I'm trying to distract myself....

Penguinepenguins Tue 15-Mar-16 12:05:18

FX for you too Anne!! My cycles went completely back to normal after my first cycle of the pill and had been taking it for donkeys years so I hope you get a BFP or find things settle into a rhythm for you, but if not don't loose heart as for some people I know it takes longer. I invested in the clear blue monitor was pricey and takes a while to get to know you, but I'm glad I did as it takes some of the guesswork out of things and I actually feel quite proactive POAS from an OPK perspective and seems to settle my nerves a little (however to be honest I become like a nymphomanic around ovulation lol and sorry if tmi so I properly don't need to be spending so much money on sticks)

The symptom spotting however is crazy smile the ooo is it, isn't it lets spend an hour on google until I get a yes this is a symptom smile but this time things just feel different, only time will tell!! DP is the same and just as impatient as me was trying to see if it was time to POAS today (he's enabling me!!!)

I can totally sympathise with yousmile I'm 8DPO and time is dragging. I reeeeally want to test but it's probably too early.

That's good you're feeling different this month penguine! Can I ask in what way?
I feel like that too but just can't put a finger on it. Had a vivid dream last night about us having a baby and it was amazing. Other symptoms for me are being thirsty, needing to pee more, some spotting 6/7 DPO, sore throat (probably completely unrelated) and feeling irritable today (poor colleagues).

This is our 6th month trying. I had a mc in Jan - sorry to hear you went through one too, it's heartbreaking.

Last month I also got a faint line on a FRER and was so excited but all other tests were BFN, such an emotional roller coaster.

I want to test soon but I also know it's too soon and don't want to be disappointed again confused

Good luck to you! Keeping everything crossed your intuition is right. Keep us posted!

I'm sorry to hear that Scottishgirl it was the hardest thing I've ever been through, utterly heartbreaking xx

How do I feel different... I just "feel" different I know that sounds silly and I know it's way too early for HCG but im very sensitive to hormones and hormones are bouncing about all over the place from the moment of conception...

So apart from just a feeling I've also been feeling way more emotional the last few days than normal I also am really snuffley and I'm not one to get colds and my boobs hurt like mad when I turned over in the night, having very real dreams and I'm getting tired earlier and waking up early... I'm a complete night owl - all this happened to me last time around 4/5dpo smile

Last night I also had some cramping on my left side... So I'm hoping this is implantation! I have a text book cycle its regular as clockwork smile

Just crossing everything for everyone xx

Penguinepenguins Tue 15-Mar-16 14:05:31

I'm also super thirsty!

JoMalones Tue 15-Mar-16 16:49:10

Hello! Currently 8 dpo and tearing my hair out! Had MC in December, this is the fourth cycle since. The last few months have been hard so this month I didn't temp or use opk or track cm or cervix. However, this week I've had more cm and just felt a bit weird. I think I'm being paranoid because I haven't been tracking. Anyway, I did an ic and was obviously bfn. So much for not testing at all for anything this month! I did well to get this far though!

Penguinepenguins Tue 15-Mar-16 22:56:07

Having passed out with tiredness for a couple of hours am now awake... Yawning but awake... I'm a complete night owl so this is not like me and I have had a few stitch like pains so I'm so hoping this is implantation - and not the fact I've eaten a lot of cheese...

Jo sorry to hear about your miscarriage - I had positive tests for ages, but miscarried very late November so this is actually our fourth month trying too but I didn't count the first month as everything was still out of sync and I am officially going insane! I'd go more so if I hadn't been tracking i think, knowing I ovulated has given me a massive sense of relief and that's why I like the monitor as it tells me when to POAS OPK wise - I don't listen to it for pregnancy tests I just go wild!

I got really emotional again this afternoon over something ridiculous - I am too embarrased to announce this at this time to anyone and thankfully was only witnessed by the cat... If there isn't going to be one in here I may have to go to the loony bin as I am far from my usual self!

I've decided to POAS tomorrow, one I can't contain myself anymore but 2, we have a celebration tomorrow and if it is negative (and I know some people stay of it completely when TTC) but after all this stress over the past four months i would really love a glass of bubbles - I'm still not sure if this is the right thing to do but if it is a BFN and it likely will be, I think one will be ok?? Can't decide shall sleep on it.

I had extra cm last time round it was something I had way before my BFP and I think it's gone up a notch today... So I do hope this is a good sign for you!!!

Sorry tannin am half asleep.. But so excited x

Penguinepenguins Tue 15-Mar-16 22:56:37

Bloody autocorrect

Sorry I'm rambling am half asleep that was suppose to be smile


JoMalones Tue 15-Mar-16 23:37:03

Sorry for your loss too penguin. I did have a glass of wine tonight, had a bad evening so thought why not? Alcohol doesn't pass through so early on so don't feel guilty! Good luck for the morning, will report back here too!

Penguinepenguins Wed 16-Mar-16 09:02:41

Until you get a BFP it isn't going to do any harm, many people don't even know until they miss AF so your right, I should not feel guilty smile I'm just quite late to this baby making game at 38 and don't want to scupper any chances after what happened before, but I can't live in a complete bubble until it happens it hopefully will be this month but it could take ages!

So I POAS and of course it was a BFN, it's way too early for me.. But.. So I can't see how a couple of glasses will hurt if I fancy it, I think (I know) I overthink things smile but I think if I hadn't POAS I would have had it in the back of mind so will be guilt free should the mood (it will) take me!

Fx for your POAS smile

JoMalones Wed 16-Mar-16 14:41:15

BFN for me too but only 9dpo. Will see tomorrow but other than a v v v strong sense of smell - v annoying! - I have no other symptoms!

Penguinepenguins Wed 16-Mar-16 16:56:27

sad maybe tomorrow smile

I am exhausted... Was at home today and sat down to watch a bit of telly and passed out for two hours... After a lot of sleep last night.

Same thing happened to me before and still having stitch type feelings.

Sense of smell hit me a few days before my BFP before, and I couldn't even face meat unless it was a KFC burger and I've never been that fussed by thoughts so hopefully this is a good sign for you smile

ScottishGirlx Fri 18-Mar-16 13:02:09

Hey Penguine & JoMalones, how are you both doing?

I just wanted to pop in and say that I got my BFP this morning at 11DPO. I was almost certain that AF was on her way with spotting exactly like I get each month. Also hardly any symptoms. Like you Penguine I just felt a bit different. I just had a real thirst and had a couple of vivid baby dreams.

Still can't quite believe it and I'm (cautiously) so excited and happy! Really hoping I have a sticky bean this time shamrock

I've also posted a pic and I know I like to see other BFP pics.

Hoping that you both get your BFP over the next few days too thanks

JoMalones Fri 18-Mar-16 13:38:19

Hello Scottish - I'm joining you! Ecstatic to get our BFP!

ScottishGirlx Fri 18-Mar-16 15:02:50

Woo hoo Jo!! Congratulations to you smile That's fab news! Nice dark line too. How many DPO are you? I'm 11 DPO

Penguinepenguins Fri 18-Mar-16 15:05:11

OMG what wonderful news!!! I'm so happy for you both...

I am still cramping on my right side, stitch with occasional feeling like a stabbing still early for me at 8/9dpo just have to hold out for Sunday as my next test day will fall off the loo if it's positive on 10/11 but be so happy! must be patient smile

For me apart from the stabbing pain, DP said he's not seen me eat with such gusto since the last time I was a pregnant (was super hungry week before) and I've been so thirsty, nothing stops me feeling thirsty, peeing a lot and exhausted still!

I hope I get one too!!!

JoMalones Fri 18-Mar-16 20:10:38

Congratulations to you too Scottish! 11dpo too! Was 10dpo when tested!

Good luck penguin!

Penguinepenguins Fri 18-Mar-16 20:20:07

I'm thinking good news comes in three smile

And there are three of us here so I hope I'm
Lucky number three xx

I'm just so very pleased for you both! Am feeling very emotional for you both smile and DP poured me a glass of wine which I went to drink and the smell made me feel so sick so I'm guessing this is a very good sign smile

We shall see...

JoMalones Fri 18-Mar-16 20:57:42

Ooh yes that's a very good sign and very much think this is it for you!

Penguinepenguins Fri 18-Mar-16 21:11:53

I think so I like my wine smile

And cats are being weird near me

I will try POAS tomorrow was going to wait until Sunday but hey it's just a stick smile and hoping your luck will run off on me xx

I am also so very very pleased for you xx I really am - I know the heartbreak you have been through and even if it turns out to be a BFN for me I'm just so happy for you!

JoMalones Fri 18-Mar-16 21:43:57

Oh that's so sweet of you.

Already missing wine!

You've got everything pointing in the right direction, I know my cats could tell too

Penguinepenguins Fri 18-Mar-16 21:54:39

I might have a sneaky glass tomorrow for you if it's a BFN ;)

No sorry can't thought of it just made me gag smile again! An entire I want to vomit now reaction. If I don't get a BFP I need committing...

I am so please for you! And I keep everything crossed (within reason) that this is a beautiful sticky baby for you xx

Penguinepenguins Fri 18-Mar-16 21:55:30

Now go out your feet up and get DH to wait on you hand and foot! I certainly did not take advantage of this last time and intend too next time ;)

Hi girls hope you don't mind me being a late joiner. Well done on your BFPs smile im roughly same situation as you penguin. I'm finding it so frustrating though this tww. I ovulated early this month do don't know how many dpo I really am. I'm also using cb opk. I was originally due af on 24th but then got smileys on 6&7th which was earlier than predicted, around 4 days so not sure what's happening now. I think I'm about 12dpo and was totally convinced with my symptoms that I was gonna get bfp but this morning got bfn.. Need to stay away from those poas !! But got my last 2 BFPs at 10dpo , one mc sad and my little rainbow is 3 next month smile and ive had all same symptoms .. Soo frustrating !! Anyway I'm going to have to try and distract myseft lol and see if af shows. Good luck penguin fx for you hon.. And hope you other ladies have sticky beans xx
