Saw a thread today from September testers, is there anything for oct yet? Just joined the TTC crew for baby #1 ☺️

I'm due af around the 12th October but I don't have very high hopes for this month as I had a cold during my fertile week. It was a total mood killer so didn't dtd much. Grrrrr!

JadeA021 Sun 01-Oct-17 20:07:16

AF is due around the 9th October, so I'm currently 7DPO, having quite a lot of symptoms already but don't want to get my hopes up too muchsmile

Mrsmumtobe Sun 01-Oct-17 20:20:11

@betsyboo I think I saw you in previous threads so I have everything crossed for you! All it takes is once lucky wee fella to catch you!

Ooo exciting Jade, when will you test?

Af due anywhere between 3rd and 6th oct and no idea what to look out for as positive signs! had some strange cramps and sharp pangs over the weekend, but this afternoon a lot of bubbling and popping so think I'm going to be out as that's normally a 24hour warning sign of AF!

JadeA021 Sun 01-Oct-17 20:25:36

@Mrsmumtobe I'm probably going to test on Wednesday which will make me be 10DPO and probably every day after that. I'm a little bit crazy when it comes to testing haha.
I've had the pains and popping/butterfly feelings since around 2/3 DPO.
Headaches, tiredness, a lot of nausea, loss of appetite, stuffy nose? and back ache plus a few other ones. I'm hoping for the best as we could use some good luck right now but i'm not feeling hopeful anymore.
Fingers crossed for you though, You're not completely out until AF arrives.

PumpkinPatch000 Sun 01-Oct-17 20:53:47

@JadeA021 i'm exactly the same as you! Waiting to see if AF arrives before doing any tests. I've felt different the last few days and have some symptoms but also trying not to get my hopes up. We are only on cycle 1. What symptoms do you have?

Fingers crossed for everyone!

JadeA021 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:05:12

@Pumpkinpatch000 This is our first cycle aswell, I just feel completely different to what I did last week. I feel very bloated and heavy in my lower stomach (Weird I know), Nausea that seems to get worse further into the day, Tingling boobs, Back ache, Headache, Stuffy nose, Cramps on one side of my stomach mixed with like a bubbling/popping type sensation? strange CM (TMI sorry) and now today loss of appetite and needing a wee a lot more :/ I still feel as though its all in my head and i'm just hoping on a miracle thoughsad What symptoms are you feeling?

Mrsmumtobe Sun 01-Oct-17 21:09:27

Fingers crossed all of you! I'm already going crazy with waiting and we have only been 'trying' for 3 weeks! Sure I've started imagining things as I was sure I started feeling nauseous yesterday but it's cleared today!

@jade, I've read a lot on here that people have had the 'cold' like symptoms and it's been a good sign so here's hoping along with the others that it's a positive outcome!

EverythingNow Sun 01-Oct-17 21:09:49

I’m 8dpo today and due anywhere between Thursday and Sunday. My cycles were really regular until ttc!

JadeA021 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:15:24

@Mrsmumtobe I'd read that cold symptoms are a good sign aswell and then I start to think 'what if there's just a cold going round' but hopefully it is a good sign.

@EverythingNow Fingers crossed AF doesn't make and appearance and you get a BFP!

PumpkinPatch000 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:19:21

@JadeA021 i know exactly what you mean! I started getting symptoms from 3DPO but yesterday morning i just felt 'different'.

It sounds like you have loads of the symptoms i have read about online that can be signs you are pregnant. I wish you lots of luck it does happen for you! When are you going to start testing?

I feel bloated and heavy in my lower stomach, and have a dully achy, tight pain there which can get quite uncomfortable at times. It comes and goes but i can have it for several hours at a time. Also nausea, lower back pain, tired, emotional (teary) and anxious at random times for no reason. I also don't have much an appetite.

Every month i'm pretty predictable in terms of getting emotional and stomach cramps when AF is due so it's unusual for me to be feeling this way when it's not due until 9th Oct! i really don't want to get my hopes at though! I'm actually starting to worry that if this isn't the lucky month then why on earth have i had such uncomfortable pains for all these days.... born worrier! blush

JadeA021 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:23:41

@Pumpkinpatch000 We are literally due AF on the same day and I've only just realised!
I know exactly how you feel, If all these signs are here and I'm not pregnant then what am I going to feel when I actually am pregnant? but fingers crossed for everyonesmile
I'm going to start testing on Wednesday with an early test and then probably every day after that and hope for the best!

PumpkinPatch000 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:27:39

@JadeA021 we are indeed! Let's hope it doesn't arrive for either of us haha

It's good to know someone is feeling the same! I'm feeling quite lost at the moment because no one knows we are TTC so i don't really have anyone i can talk to about it besides DH.

Eek how exciting!! At the moment i'm thinking i'll wait until after AF is due and see if she turns up... whether i will or not who knows. I'm excited to test but at the same scared of the disappointment.

JadeA021 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:32:21

@pumpkinpatch000 Fingers crossed! People know that we are going to be having another baby but they don't know that we are TTC now so its going to be a shock for a few family members.
I mean if you test early and its a BFN then you're still not out until AF arrives that's what I've been telling myself but I just don't have the patience to wait until the 9thgrin

PumpkinPatch000 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:35:06

Aww that will be a lovely surprise for your family! This will be our first baby so completely out of our depth at the moment.

That's a good point about the BFN and AF...hmmmm... maybe i should test earlier. Eek!

JadeA021 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:39:50

@pumpkinpatch000 Theres a better chance of it showing up on a test around 10/11DPO hence why I'm waiting till Wednesday but I have done the few early ones just incase and of course they've been BFN.
Its just the excitement of getting a BFP before AF is supposed to arrive and then not having to cope with the anxiety the day beforegrin

PumpkinPatch000 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:42:52

@JadeA021 True, i didn't think of the anxiety on actual AF day waiting to see if anything happens... i'm not looking forward to that! Maybe i will test earlier after all so you kind of have a heads up but the door is still open to the possibility. What test would you recommend?

AnythingNotEverything Sun 01-Oct-17 21:44:41

I'm hoping for a bfp this month but I don't even ovulate until Thursday ish. Longest month ever! Planning to DTD every night this week then wait and see.

In my experience (3 successful pregnancies so far) the only sign of pregnancy has been the lack of pmt symptoms and then no period. Good luck ladies.

JadeA021 Sun 01-Oct-17 21:46:02

@Pumpkinpatch000 I might be wrong but I think they're roughly all the same I think, I'm using just the cheap ones at the moment but I suppose for extra reassurance clear blue or first response are your bestsmile They do all work the same though.

Mrsmumtobe Sun 01-Oct-17 22:02:31

Is there a way to know ovulation aside from the tests? Everyone seems to date testing etc around dpo but I've no clue?
I have done a couple of cheap early internet tests Friday and today both bfn (mind you it was afternoon/evening on both of them after reading other peoples excitement on here getting the better of me!)
This week is going to be the slowest week ever!

AnythingNotEverything Mon 02-Oct-17 07:16:02

I use an app to track AF etc which says when it is likely to occur, but I can tell also when I ovulate. There's a clear change in CM and often libido too.

Mrsmumtobe Mon 02-Oct-17 08:13:05

I also use an app which tells me a date but I didn't feel any different on that day (or the days around it) so wasn't sure if it is right.....
will maybe get the wee test sticks if nothing this month or next

EverythingNow Mon 02-Oct-17 09:12:32

I tracked my cycles with reasonable success for the 18m before ttc by cm and using the clue app.

Since ttc I’ve been using opks (just cheapies) glow app and also keeping an eye on cm. This month I got a positive opk next cd10 and ewcm leading up to that. I have short cycles but this was early even for me!

CherryVicky29 Mon 02-Oct-17 10:20:00

Can I join currently 5dpo on second cycle 🙂 last cycle i POAS too many times so trying to keep busy till af due next Monday

Mrsmumtobe Mon 02-Oct-17 11:04:58

Hi @cherryvicky!
It's frustrating huh. Only cycle 1 and af due pretty much tomorrow or Wednesday so on tenterhooks right now!
Had no real unusual symptoms though, but did wake up feeling bloated which is the norm for Af but been feeling lightheaded and dizzy all morning which I never normally do 😏
Think I'm going to be out though and onto cycle 2 next month!
