Mid October testers?

I'm 6 dpo and have used up all my methods of distraction already!

I'll be testing on the 11th if I can wait that long!

For context, we weren't actively trying but I always knew we'd have a third and there's a (small?) chance it has happened this month. It would be earlier than we planned but if there's anything I've learned it is that there's never a good time and never a bad time to have a baby. grin This would be my last so Im getting myself really excited.

Does anybody want to join me in this waiting marathon?

I'm around 7dpo and due af on the 12th. Probably only a small chance for me too this month as I had a cold during my fertile week so wasn't really up for dtd!

DaenerysismyQueen Tue 03-Oct-17 23:20:16

I'll squeeze in. BFP hoped for around the 15/10. Am confused about when I'm ovulating though and will have only DTD once or twice in the guesstimate window so unlikely this month. Still you never know...

Hello! I'm 5dpo af due on the 11th.
My birthday is on the 10th so fx for a nice bday positive.
Goodluck xx

deanery im the same. I don't track my ovulation, just go by dates. So I might be less or more than 7dpo today... Still, holding off until Tuesday next week at least. It's hard!

blue that would be a wonderful surprise!
FX for you!

Good luck all!

Hi all, my AF is due on 11th too! I have a 16 day long luteal phase so I always end up caving and testing early grin

MamOfFrankie Wed 04-Oct-17 09:31:11

Another AF due on the 11th here! No good at tracking ovulation but THINK I am about 7/8 dpo. Seems like a long time to wait to test, doesn't it?

PJsAndProsecco Wed 04-Oct-17 09:57:02

Joining! I'm unsure as to whether my cycle will be 28 or 36 days. Came off pill start of August and had a 36 day cycle. My usual pre-pill was 28 days and I went back to this straight away last time I came off it. I came off mid-pack this time so I'm wondering if that's why I had a longer cycle. SO. Either I'm about 4dpo now or I'm still waiting to ovulate and will be due AF on the 21st October! Just doing lots of BD'ing last week and this week, hoping to catch it! I kinda hope it's 28 days as I'm impatient! But if no AF on the 13th I'll just hold out and wait another week to test, as I know it could well be a longer cycle!

LittleBirdBlues Wed 04-Oct-17 10:19:40

It's the first time that I'm actually tracking ovulation and dpo's. I don't even know what a luteal phase is! off to google blush

So how many dpo will you all be checking? If I'm not mistaken Tuesday next week will be 13 dpo for me. Does that sound about right for testing? Or is it late/early??

LittleBirdBlues Wed 04-Oct-17 10:21:09

Just realised AF is due on 12th so I should probably test on the 11th (Wednesday) shouldn't I? Not the 10th...

Laura2018 Wed 04-Oct-17 20:24:18

My AF is due today and I'm suddenly too scared to test, I've been desperate to test for two weeks and now I just can't bring myself to do it. I think I'm scared of both outcomes. My last pregnacy ended in ectopic xx

BlueeSpottyTiger Wed 04-Oct-17 23:04:05

little I've had 2 bfps from 3 pregnancies at 9dpo (1 at 13dpo) every pregnancy is diff because of implantation. The average dpo for it is 9 but most the time it can be anything from 6-12 or even later. So you could test at 10dpo and get a bfp or you might not have even implanted. If that makes any sense 🙈

Laura aww i know! I'm so impatient right now but when it comes to the time to test i will be nervous because of previous loses. Goodluck xx

Lots of us due on the 11th 🤗

LittleBirdBlues Thu 05-Oct-17 08:06:15

blue oooh, you're tempting me to test earlier! I'm 8dpo now (I think) but not planning to test for another 6 days. My dad is arriving from abroad for a few days and I don't really want to test when he's around! He's leaving first thing on Tuesday

LittleBirdBlues Thu 05-Oct-17 08:09:07

When are you planning to test this time blue?

laura yes I know the feeling too. Have you tested this morning? Hope you are OK.

CoconutGal Thu 05-Oct-17 08:20:38

I’m 7dpo. Nausea always happens once AF has finished so this time round I’m trying not to symptom spot. But the nausea is unbearable this cycle. I’ve got mild cramps & some spotting this morning. So not sure what’s going on

LittleBirdBlues Thu 05-Oct-17 09:33:23

coconut that definitely sounds pretty promising! Hope you're not feeling too poorly with the nausea. I'm definitely not looking forward to "morning" sickness!

Only symptoms I've had are vivid dreams and (sorry tmi) more discharge. So pretty vague. But then I only found out that I was pregnant with my first two when I was about 6 weeks in, so I think my symptoms kick in later.

Laura2018 Thu 05-Oct-17 10:12:30

LittleBirdBlues no i'm still too scared to test! No sign of AL either....

Laura2018 Thu 05-Oct-17 10:17:05

BlueeSpottyTiger sorry to hear about your previous losses, I hope it goes well for you this time xx

BlueeSpottyTiger Thu 05-Oct-17 15:18:59

Laura Sorry about your ectopic 💖 have you tested yet?? Xx
little when im 9dpo on sat🙈
Coconut Goodluck! I'm 7dpo too and I'm having lots of stabby pains in my left pelvic area. Apart from that i have nothing else happening now since the cramps stopped yesterday.

CoconutGal Thu 05-Oct-17 15:33:07

@LittleBirdBlues @BlueeSpottyTiger - I hope it’s promising. According to Ovia I can poas in 5 days. But I haven’t done a lot of tracking recently so I’m not sure how accurate that is. I have a ultrasound scan next week to check for pcos as I have been showing some symptoms so hopefully if there’s no obvious signs before that, that should shed some light. I’m hoping to see lots of BFP’s this month from you all ladies!! grin

Laura2018 Thu 05-Oct-17 15:57:58

BlueeSpottyTiger thank you 🌺 I haven't tested yet. I might wait until the weekend so I'm not a wreck in work!

Mrsmumtobe Thu 05-Oct-17 16:07:40


Jumping in on this one if I can please! (also started an October testing thread too so watching them both with anticipation!)

I was due AF on 2/3rd Oct but nothing as yet and only BPN tests!
I did just come off the pill early sept so wondering if that has thrown my cycles as I was 5 days into my pill cycle? I don't know! I just wish I knew one way or the other (--because I have a mate date on sat with or without wine--) so I could get back to 'trying'..... Gahhh

LittleBirdBlues Thu 05-Oct-17 17:40:40

Yay there's more of us!

mrsmum I will have some wine this weekend, it could well be the last for a long time! FX grin

Mrshand123 Thu 05-Oct-17 22:36:57

Hi all, I'm on my fertile window now so testing bit later on 17th. Actually on holiday in Spain so fingers crossed October might be the month. But good luck 🍀 xx

Mrsmumtobe Fri 06-Oct-17 07:59:44

Another BFN from me, think I'm starting to agree with dh who is telling me I'm just late and not pregnant as a reaction to coming off pill. Though I've been off that twice over the years and never been late as a reaction confused

Think it will be wine for me tomorrow instead of a BFP!
