I am literally checking my cm around 10 times a day, and no, I am not using the word 'literally' liberally. I check Ovia constantly just in case it manically says I can test earlier and I already have an eBay wish list for everything baby will need from newborn to 18!! I used to be a normal level headed person I swear!!

*magically not manically - although that also works ;)

Google symptoms at least 10 times a day. Check on mn and ovia constantly. Check my cm every time I go to the loo.

It's the 2ww, isn't it a killer. I keep googling "earliest bfp" and "bfp 4dpo" etc as if finding one story of one woman who had a bfp on ovulation day will miraculously make me pregnant.

With my first I had the Amazon wish list of everything I needed to buy drawn up from day one! I already have everything I need this time, which is a shame because I really enjoyed the shopping.

You'd think second time around you'd be more relaxed about it all. I am here to tell you that is not the case!

4th time around I am far from relaxed about it. Although last pg was 9 years ago so forgotten everything!

POAS twice a day for a good few months and not the cheap ones either didn't know those excited with PFB
Googled symptoms anytime a was near a computer ( this was 9 years ago so not on my phone)
Searched the web for stories of women who continued to have periods even though pregnant.
Become slightly militant about when we had sex blush

Yep to the incessant cm checking and despite my rational self saying it's pointlees, Googling every little thing. I did stop temping and using opks thus cycle in the hope it would make me less obsessive. Stupid thing is, we've been told there's a less than 1% chance of natural conception. You would think I would take the hint, but instead I'm grasping into that small chance with everything I have! I'm going on holiday tomorrow so here's hoping some relaxation does the trick, although I have already ovulated and af is due on Saturday. I've packed two tests and took a frer this morning (how to waste a fiver).

After is due Saturday too! I'm still getting positive opks!! I'm constantly on Google and looking at baby things! It's crazy what it does to you! I took a hpt yesterday and thought I saw a very faint line so held it up to the light and can see it very clear. Would the line show anyway if held up to the light?

It sounds like you're pregnant. Opks can be positive when pregnant too. I think congratulations is in order!

I walk around mothercare trying not to smile like a loon at all the lovely things!grin
I watch YouTube videos reviewing baby products.blush
I constantly update and check ovia too!

I am only using opks as I was on the pill for over 10 years so I wanted to try and understand my cycles. However, while this is the only thing that I am doing, TTC is the only thing that occupies my mind. All the time! I can barely think of anything else. I have actually found the journey quite lonely. Once in a while I will talk to DH but he is very relaxed about the whole thing.

I POAS, take photos of them and spend long periods of time studying the pictures in photo editor for hints of a line blush
