Hi ladies, I'm currently 10dpo and I use opk but not temping. To give a bit of background - I have pcos which I'm trying to manage myself as drs won't medicate (I already have two children) I've managed to regulate my periods from have 1-2 a year to a 34 day cycle!! So I'm pretty psyched. So... I got my positive opk on cd20 which makes me 10dpo today. I have no symptoms at all except 3 days ago I was actually sick in the gym was very sudden and strange but I didn't think much of it just that maybe I was overdoing it. Today I wipe and I have a few strands of brownish blood in lots of ewcm?! Now I'm trying my hardest not to overthink which isn't going too well! Lol. But could this be implantation bleed? Or simply a shorter cycle? I should just wait for the morning to see if af arrives early but I think I may need some grounding haha! Any advice or similar things going? Any cycle buddies out there? X
Hey! Thought I was out here on my own for a minute then.. No AF and no more blood.. no idea if that means anything! But I have my fingers crossed. Little bit crampy today and seems a bit early for af as due Friday?! I HATE 2ww!!
Good plan. Saturday earliest testing for me but was thinking about Monday, just to be definitely sure I'm late. I fully expect AF to have kicked in by then. My toddler has been a bit off with me and I'm taking that as a symptom, she knows and is angry 😂
My cycles was terrible!! I think the longest was 145 days. After being diagnosed pcos last summer the gp was awful. Told me I was too overweight (fair enough) I was 19.4 stone. And that I would probably never have anymore children. I was gutted and moped around for a few months eating chocolate lol. Then decided to do my own research and see what I can do. So November I joined the gym, was super hard at first but I'm now doing 45 mins of cardio and 30 min weight training. I also changed my diet completely. Cutting carbs back to 50g a day protein at 190g. I also started taking maca powder with my protein shakes which has been amazing I think! I've lost 3 and a half stone but I swear the month I started back in November I had a 38 day cycle and they have been regular every month getting shorter each time! It was 34 the past two cycles. It's difficult to stay on track but I actually enjoy the gym now. I still have a long way to go. On my meal plan I have 300 calories to play with daily so I can have treats etc and I don't really feel as though I'm going without. The most difficult part is keeping my protein high every day. I don't think it's so much the weightloss although it's helped massively I think it's mostly down to the exercise?
That's a huge achievement well done!! I have started exercising more and have lost a little weight although I wasn't too over weight originally I had put 7-8 pounds on which I really need to shift. Lost about 5 pounds so far. I've just had my first AF since October so I'm hoping it's as a result of upping my exercise and losing some weight. It is hard though isn't it!
Thank you girls! Its was a struggle but i hate missing more then two days now and I feel so much better. I'm actually able to catch up with my 2 year old boy! (Who by the way is a miniature sonic the hedgehog) I do believe that exercise is the key though 100%
And happybus keep it going! You'll find something you enjoy doing exercise wise and go for it, you really will start to enjoy it and it will no longer be a struggle. X
