I used clear blue digital yesterday morning. Is there any more sensitive?

Hi all
Been trying to catch a new post when it started, can I jump on this one?
Had my implant removed on Valentine's Day n been DTD every other day since then.
Not had a bleed yet so not sure if even frustrating not knowing what is happening inside our own bodies!!
Looking forward to hearing all of your stories!

I'm here smile
clacton hi, welcome! hopefully you'll get a bleed soon. I honestly don't think there is a rhyme or reason to how they come back.
kitcaty I believe Superdrug do but can't be too certain. Would best googling smile

Kit I lost my periods for 7 months and have very light bleed before. Have you lost weight? Under stress?

Kitcaty Thu 23-Feb-17 20:22:34

I have two normal period since coming off the pill. My cycle changed from 28 days on the dot when I was on the pill to 32/33 days. My weights not really changed, over the past 4 years I've put on a stone slowly but been at a steady weight for the past yearish. No more stress than normal although TTC isn't without stress. Did your period stop after coming off conception? I've read alot of the past posts but not 100% up to speed

Hey girls! I'm in ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
Welcome clacton!!
So I'm about to gross people out now... beware TMI ๐Ÿ˜
Sooo I always wear pantyliners, you know those lil scenty ones that don't hold periods lol but just keep you feeling comfy down there... I've worn them for years, (I must have paid for shares in Carefree by now lol) and I was a bit concerned the other week that I may be missing obvious ewcm coz it would get absorbed by the liners, but then I noticed it last week pre-ov and have noticed it almost every day post-ov (I'm 7dpo today) well I was in a particular rush this morning and completely forgot to put one on. I wore black knickers and I went to the loo, initially shocked I'd forgot to wear one and then immediately grossed out by what was there... (this is the gross bit, warning โš ๏ธ) it was like creamy whitey stuff ๐Ÿ˜ฉ not thick or blobby, it had been a good 4 hours since I'd been to the loo last and it wasn't wet, it had obviously dried into my knicks (yaakkk) but now coz I've always worn liners, I'm not sure if this is normal! I've never noticed it on liners before but obv it could just have been absorbed previously but I can't help worrying like what is it?! I don't usually notice any CM so it's a stroke of luck I noticed the ewcm before ov last week and have been noticing a bit of watery since, but now I'm like is this creamy stuff what I've always had and never noticed on my liners? Or is this what the watery stuff looks like on cotton rather than liners? Or is it something different? I'm sure I'm not in the running to be pg this cycle due to the totally lack of and mistimed dtd, and have had no symptoms except sore boobs (and slight cramps today) BUT that's exactly normal for me before af (which is due a week today) but now I'm just like.... dafuk is that stuff ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Thanks for the new thread mrsj smile

Welcome to the thread clacton aka the best thread on mumsnet wink

tuxie11 Thu 23-Feb-17 20:49:03

misty what you've described is pretty normal! The black underwear will deffo have made it 10x more obvious but I believe when I've googled Cm cycle you get dry after O and then it turns to thick (non fertile) so I would say you're good smile

MistyBxx Thu 23-Feb-17 21:16:21

Oh thanks tuxie. That's good to hear. I love my liners lol but it has defo been disguising my stuff I think lol. And then I just freaked out and was like wtf is that ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚x

mrsjkerry Thu 23-Feb-17 21:29:13

Hey misty I agree that all sounds pretty normal!

Marie90 Thu 23-Feb-17 21:39:08

Yay! Thanks for the new thread mrsjkerry!

Welcome Clacton smile

And yeah tuxie11 it definitely helped! My OH is well and truly prepared for the next FW now so Fx he's not Ill again (or if he is he'll have the understanding that he can be Ill in his own time and I'm still going to want to DTD)!! ๐Ÿ˜‚

I think I'm well and truly trying to convince myself I'm Pg this month...I've been noticing smells more (odd for me as I usually breath through my mouth), but I'm only 5dpo so not really close enough to AF/BFP to even be getting symptoms! My brain is trying to drive me crazy!

Anyone else had this?

mrsjkerry Thu 23-Feb-17 21:41:49

Yes Marie every cycle I have convinced myself I was pregnant. I even bought a pregnancy cushion one month (which by the way I absolutely don't regret it's the comfiest thing ever)! This month, despite promising myself I wouldn't symptom spot and convince myself, I have decided that my boobs are bigger than normal and the weird twinges in my stomach must be implantation. Every time I go to the toilet I look for spotting. It's a nightmare!!

MistyBxx Thu 23-Feb-17 21:48:01

Oh I'm so excited for tomoz girlies!! For the first couple of tests!! It actually feels quite nice NOT symptom spotting for a change! I feel quite relaxed lol ๐Ÿ˜‚ but I am enjoying the butterflies for others!!x

Marie90 Thu 23-Feb-17 21:48:45

Hahaha mrsjkerry the pregnancy cushion sounds like a good purchase.. BFP or not!!

It's so frustrating isn't it! I just want to stay sane and almost forget about it all until it's time to test but it's currently all I can think about!

Are you finding these are different symptoms to the ones you spotted in your last few cycles?

Marie90 Thu 23-Feb-17 21:51:23

And me too MistyBxx I've got my Fx for the first few BFP of this month!

mrsjkerry Thu 23-Feb-17 21:56:11

I struggle to remember Marie. The problem is I never used to get swollen boobs like this, but since losing my periods and then having them come back, they swell up about 10 days before AF. At first I was mega excited because I thought 'wow this is weird I must be pregnant' but now I know it's just a new thing my body does ๐Ÿ˜„ I would say my boobs feel more "full" than just "tender" but who knows! And yeh I've never had the twinning in my stomach before, but again..maybe I'm being over sensitive? Or maybe it's all the food I've eaten ๐Ÿ˜„๐Ÿ˜„

mrsjkerry Thu 23-Feb-17 21:56:24

Who is testing tomorrow???

Marie90 Thu 23-Feb-17 22:03:06

mrsjkerry Ahhh it's so frustrating that loads of of signs are the same as pmt signs! And I've got a whole week to wait as well ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™ˆ

mrsjkerry Thu 23-Feb-17 22:08:19

Marie when are you testing? I have to wait till 3 March. Seems an eternity

Marie90 Thu 23-Feb-17 22:12:45

mrsjkerry AF is due 3rd March so if she doesn't arrive by that evening then I'll test then (trying to convince myself I'll wait till then and not test early)!

Just think..Just over a week! Are you testing early or is that when your AF is due too? (Sorry, I can't remember if I've asked you that or not)!!

mrsjkerry Thu 23-Feb-17 22:22:17

Ovia says 5 March. Clue says 3 March. I'm not 100% decided but will probably want to test around 3 March if AF hasn't arrived.
