Hello everyone,

Not been on the boards for a while, and feel some May threads are far too big to join now! Thought I'd make a little one for anyone due AF this coming Sunday/Monday (then join June threads if no BFP).

Quick background: Been ttc since last year with no luck, not even a sniff of a line! Was a regular on conception boards but started it find the whole ttc lark quite stressful so we stopped trying for a while. We are now TTC again but trying to be relaxed about it! Had 2 MC's (one with a D&C) about 3 years ago.

Only symptoms so far is very strong metallic taste in mouth. Normally have PMS symptoms by now but nothing.

Please join and test with me, and stop me going mad! This is the most positive I've felt in ages grin

I'm due Tuesday, we were going to start ttc from next month but we got a bit carried away around ovulation so my chances are very very small but I'm still hoping for a BFP! I've had a few symptoms probably imagined. But today has been the most with cramping and a couple of dizzy spells. I'm only 7dpo but might start testing from Thursday (10dpo).
Are you planning to wait for a late AF before you test?

Hi mighty!!
Im due Saturday!

Quick background for me....
Been try 5 years, diagnosed with unexplained infertility last August, fell pregnant naturally straight after but unfortunately miscarried at 11 weeks.

This month I've been quite relaxed as got a bit obsessed with OPK, but we have used conceive plus for the first time twice this month, both times around my fertile period.

No symptoms really other than my nipples being a bit sore (sorru if tmi) don't really ever get any symptoms before af arrives so fingers crossed!!

When are you planning to test??

I have everything crosses for you! 😚😚

I'm due next Friday but was planning on poas on Monday at 10dpo!

MotherofBoy Tue 09-May-17 08:13:48

Pa my background: ttc #2, this is cycle 3. Fell almost straight away with DS who is nearly 2, so bit put out it has taken longer than him already! I am temping and using opks, second cycle of temping. Not feeling too positive this month tho as haven't had any stabbing pains or boob aching yet and I had a lot last month around ov

I'm testing on Sunday!
I'm only due AF next Thursday, BUT this Sunday will be two weeks since ovulation (I have very long luteal phase).
I don't have any symptoms at all, but don't recall having many symptoms at this stage that last time I got my BFP - which sadly ended in MC at 12 weeks.
Good luck gals xx

Ovia tells me I can test from tomorrow but I'm going to wait and see if AF arrives and if no sign by Monday I will test then.

Although might have to test on Saturday as meant to be going out for drinks...

The last couple of cycles I've been late so what was a fairly reliable 27 day cycle has now be stretching out to 30 days and even 32 last month, so I'm not going to allow myself to test early.

Kittykat89 Tue 09-May-17 15:50:20

Hi ladies! I'm due af Sunday but I have zero self control so I tested today (think around 10dpo ish bit didn't do any OPKs or temping). Very faint bfp. Fingers crossed it's darker tomorrow. Good luck and baby dust to everyone else testing this week! Xxx

MightyLightningMouse Tue 09-May-17 22:34:45

Hi Wiggly well you have as much of a chance as anyone else, so fingers crossed for you (as they say it can only take the once!!) I'm also started to cramp as well, and horrible bloating! So these could all be positive signs! I'm planning to test on Sunday at the very earliest if I can wait that long Keep me updated!

Arual Personally I'd have a sneaky POAS before drinks - better to be safe than sorry! Keep us updated!

Nanny with you falling pregnant do they think it'll still be a struggle for you? How amazing that you managed to conceive, and so sorry for your loss, it's devastating isn't it! Keep a note of your symptoms on this thread, any "new" symptoms can only be a good thing! I'm planning to test on Sunday, how about you? Fx!

motherofboy let us know how you get on! grin

Forever You'll be testing same time as me! So sorry it ended in MC, it's so unfair. Fingers crossed!

Kittykat Wow, I hope it's a line!! Are you able to post a pic so we can take a look?? Thank you for the bd!

Monday seems sooooo bloody far away!!! Symptoms today: Lots of cramping and bloating today (never bloat normally) & this metallic mouth comes randomly. What tests will you all be using? Apparently Superdrug early responses are famed for giving false positives, think its best to stick with a standard (non-early) one??

MotherofBoy Wed 10-May-17 05:41:09

I will be using a FRER only Ines I trust but I do have a big batch of internet cheapies should I get twitchy!!

BasinHaircut Wed 10-May-17 09:02:53

Ohh can I join? I'm 7dpo and trying furiously not to symptom spot.

2nd cycle TTC DC2. Last month AF came at 9 or 10 dpo (I can't remember if I recorded the day of positive OPK or the day after as O day) so I've said I'll test on Sunday which is 11 dpo if AF hasn't arrived.

I've only got internet cheapie tests and am trying not to obsess (but my Google history would suggest otherwise grin)

RedPanda25 Wed 10-May-17 09:41:08

Hi ladies! In the same boat I think smile I'm currently 7dpo I think and also trying desperately not to symptom spot! It's our first month of TTC number 2 so not expecting to be lucky this month but still can't help obsessing!

Kittykat89 Wed 10-May-17 10:06:26

It's definitely a line this morning! Eeeek! I've got sore nipples and a bit of cramping and bloating. Started with mild pains similar to af but much too early at about 7dpo, and I was needing more sleep than normal. My Google search history is hilarious haha the targeted ads are exclusively about babies now! Good luck to everyone testing this weekend including those of you as impatient as me that don't wait till the weekend! Really hoping to see some more bfps!

BasinHaircut Wed 10-May-17 10:18:00

Congratulations kitty!

Kittykat89 Wed 10-May-17 10:43:08

Thank you! grin

RedPanda25 Wed 10-May-17 10:57:23

Congratulations kitty!

BasinHaircut Wed 10-May-17 14:31:13

redpanda you are exactly where i am, when are you testing?

ForeverHopeful21 Wed 10-May-17 18:45:59

Congrats Kitty amazing news!

I'm 10 dpo today. I have achy legs and pressure in the uterus area. This is the exact same feeling I get just before AF shows her ugly face. I feel gutted.
I've not had any symptoms or a sign that I could be pg ...if anything I've had quite a lot of energy the last few day, even did a major spring clean yesterday! I'm wondering whether to test tomorrow morning? I keep telling myself it's too early but I kind of want to put myself out of my misery. What to do? x

RedPanda25 Wed 10-May-17 20:59:40

@BasinHaircut I'm going to try and wait till Sunday! But I'm so bad at resisting so I'll probably poas before then. I've been feeling sick all day today so obviously taking that as a symptom (although I know it's too early!)

RedPanda25 Wed 10-May-17 21:01:27

@ForeverHopeful21 when is AF due? I got my bfp with ds 4 days before AF was due because I couldn't resist!

ForeverHopeful21 Wed 10-May-17 21:15:58

RedPanda AF is due in 4 - 8 days. I have a 30 - 34 day cycle (so my tww is usually a 3ww!!). This evening I've felt convinced that AF is going to show so I'm not sure of that's a good sign or bad?? I'm 11 dpo tomorrow so would I be wasting a test?

BasinHaircut Wed 10-May-17 21:18:56

redpanda I'm testing Sunday if AF doesn't show before, but my LP was only 9 days last month (first month off the pill so not sure if that's 'normal') so going by that I should expect to see AF before then.

RedPanda25 Wed 10-May-17 21:46:48

Perhaps @ForeverHopeful21, maybe wait a few more days if you can? It must be so frustrating having a long tww!

@BasinHaircut right I'm going to try and wait till Sunday too! Maybe your luteal phase will be longer this month?

Fingers crossed for us all!

ForeverHopeful21 Wed 10-May-17 21:56:45

Ok ladies, I'm going to wait until Sunday too! xxx

NannyGR Thu 11-May-17 06:38:21

I think I may be out ladies..... and 2 days early too 😢😢 gutted really thought this was the month, good luck to everyone else!
