Hello ladies! So we're currently trying for baby #2. Came off implant in december. AF showed 1st February then again 30th March. My friend suggested the app Flo. According to the app if im regular i should have ovulated around 12th. We DTD every other day from AF finishing. Now im having mild cramps in lower belly. (I think its in my head though!) Just got to enjoy the 2ww (yayy)
Anyone else ttc and their brain finding symptoms everywhere?

Hotpinkangel19 Sun 16-Apr-17 09:20:36

Me! I either ovulated on 8th or 12th, so either 8DPO or 4DPO. So far I have the most sore nipples (sorry!!!) and low cramps. Feel slightly sick this morning although that's far too early!!!! 😂

Hey hotpink
Yeah, my boobs are sensitive when i take my bra off.. i kind of put it down to the fact the girls dont like being restricted haha.
Yep, defo got cramps this morning.
Cant wait to POAS x

Hotpinkangel19 Sun 16-Apr-17 09:38:21

Me too... I hate waiting!!!! Constantly symptom spotting!! X

Same, im new to MN so thought id join and have a natter with ladies in my situation. Try and keep my mind off of it.
Really shouldn't have stocked up on PT's im a bit of a POAS addict haha x

Hotpinkangel19 Sun 16-Apr-17 09:53:58

Snap! Already POAS this morning...obv negative!!! 😂😂 I've not been on long either, no one really knows we are ttc so I'm coming on here! X

I've had every symptom possible every month TTC (all 8 of them) but it's all in my head. And every little ache or twinge, I google straight away.
I'm turning into a total baby psycho. This can't be healthy!
AF shows every month and I have to do it all over again!

pocketfullofsunshine Sun 16-Apr-17 22:21:47

Yep, thinks that's going to be me.
I've cramped all day, but its more of a dull ache in lower belly, and I'm also knackered. But I do have a toddler too!
Also, I have a cold I can't shift. Unsure what that means.
Last AF was 14 days late, all BFN. So unsure if my body even knows what it's doing right now.

Hi ladies, I think I ovulated on the 10th or 11th. Yesterday and today I have felt exhausted with an ache in my stomach. I think it's too early for symptoms though. I am a crazy symptom spotter!

This is cycle 7 for me. Last month af was 2 weeks late for no apparent reason. Was so happy when she turned up so I could start afresh after countless bfn confused

It's hard not to become obsessed

SSF8 Sun 16-Apr-17 22:27:03

I had lots of cramping last cycle and I convinced myself I was pregnant. Turns out it was a water infection and AF showed up right on time!
So annoying. I have read a lot of posts from people saying they had colds etc. Your immune system is weaker in early pregnancy. So you never know.
It's hard not to get your hopes up when you're so desperate for something.
Stay positive and good luck xx

pocketfullofsunshine Sun 16-Apr-17 22:37:20

@Faye We ovulated around the same time then hun!
According to my app I should have ovulated on the 12th.
Have DTD every other day since AF left the scene.

Have also come down with an awful cold, my throat is sore to the point I'm losing my voice. Have read this is a good sign as can be a sign that something is happening and my body has lowered my immune system.

Really do need to stop SS though!!
Will drive myself mad!
When do you plan on testing?

pocketfullofsunshine Sun 16-Apr-17 22:39:38

@SSF I really hope this is our month, hate having to go through this.

Last month was hell had a dodgy test that gave me BFP when all the others including blood test were BFN. Don't get a Lloyds digital test!
AF must have got sidetracked last month too as she was 2weeks late!

Drove myself insane!

gigglygiraffe Sun 16-Apr-17 22:41:39

Hello! I'm definitely symptom spotting. First month of TTC and now experiencing the 2ww- never has two weeks felt so long!
@pocketfullofsunshine I've lost my voice too, let's hope it's a good sign!

SSF8 Sun 16-Apr-17 22:43:05

I hope this is our month too!
My daughter is 9 next month, the age gap is slowly getting bigger. She'll have left home before I give her a brother or sister at this rate! (Although she has specified sister not brother)
She also keeps asking why she doesn't have anyone to play with and her friend do. It makes me feel so guilty! But she's too young to understand that I'm trying my hardest!

pocketfullofsunshine Sun 16-Apr-17 22:52:17

@gigglygiraffe Fingers crossed for us croaky throats!!
This cold is knocking me for 6, can't keep my eyes open without matchsticks!

@SSF Oh gosh! That must be an awful feeling! sad ((hugs))
Luckily, DS is very young so don't have to worry about that..

Hmm, this 2ww is going to be the death of my sanity! I can feel it!

SSF8 Sun 16-Apr-17 22:57:47

I can't wait for the day I can tell her she's going to have a little brother or sister to play with!
Trying not to symptom spot this month. Although I'm only 1dpo and I have cramps. It's probably from eating far too much Sunday lunch, chocolate and cake today. But it still makes me google!
DD was an unplanned surprise (I was only a kid myself) but I think it makes it worse knowing it happened before without trying, and now I'm trying it won't happen!

Fayemay27 Mon 17-Apr-17 07:42:34

@pocketfullofsunshine we did and i see your af was 2 weeks late last cycle exactly like mine! I plan on holding off testing until the weekend. AF is (supposed) to be due Saturday/Sunday at the latest. Altho if last month is anything to go by I'm not sure when it will turn up!

It's too easy to SS. Every month I google like mad and it always ends in a bfn.

Fingers crossed this is our month!

pocketfullofsunshine Mon 17-Apr-17 11:41:04

@SS yeah thats exactly the same with DS. Wasn't trying, had literally no symptoms whatsoever so missed the 1dt trimester and skipped a bit of the 2nd!

@Faye we're also having the same symptoms. FX for us both. A lady on the April thread put a website on. If its all gone to plan implantation should be around 9dpo. But can happen before.

I wish our bodies would catch up with technology and we get a text alert or email to let us know whats going on. It'd be much easier!

Hotpinkangel19 Mon 17-Apr-17 11:49:29

Never using Superdrug again! POAS this morning and a really obvious evap line comes up..... it was there before I took the casing off btw. 😡 what test are you all using? X

pocketfullofsunshine Mon 17-Apr-17 12:34:22

Oh dear.. i always used boots own brand. Never did me wrong smile
Also ladies, never use lloyds pharmacy own brands digi test.. i got a "pregnant" appear when every test came up negative. Including a blood test from gp.

I have boots own brands and internet cheap strips. Also have a cbd that ill only use if and when i get BFP.

Sorry you have had an evap Hotpink, FX for you for the next test!! Xx

louste78 Mon 17-Apr-17 12:43:58

I Ovulated on the 10th, so now 7DPO.....this has been the longest week in history, hubby is off 4 days in the next 7 so he will distract me and hopefully it goes quicker...AF due 25th,
we are using a sperm donor (DH had snip 24 years ago) so fingers crossed for a BFP

pocketfullofsunshine Mon 17-Apr-17 12:54:09

@louste sending baby dust your way hunny! Im already going crazy after 5 days and feeling every twinge means something even though i know it probably doesn't sad

louste78 Mon 17-Apr-17 13:04:52

this is our 1st cycle TTC this way, we did the whole private clinic 7 years ago and it didnt happen £15k later we decided to stop.....but in the last few months we have discussed it alot and DH said lets do it! found our donor so we are good to go.......but at 39 I know the odds are slim :/

I will wait for AF and only test if she dont show! :O that would be a shock, as i am already geared up with OPK's for next cycle LOL

CatRen27 Mon 17-Apr-17 13:26:35

I ovulated on the 13th so join you on the dastardly tww! We had sex only twice this cycle though but that included the night of ov so fingers crossed. Need support not to test early or symptom spot although totally guilty of the latter!

pocketfullofsunshine Mon 17-Apr-17 13:47:33

@louste yeah its our 2nd cycle of ttc. Last month i really thought was it when AF didnt show for 15 days!
I caught pregnant soo fast with DS, like with the 1st O i had after implant removal.

@CatRen I'll do my beat for support to not POAS although you'll probably find you'll support me more! And also in the guilty boat with SS. I'm terrible for it this month! Last month didn't SS at all. This month im googling everything x
