(Think) I ovulated on Sunday. DTD several times at the right times(I think!) so it’s just a case of waiting now... boy oh boy, I’m driving myself nuts!! DH has no idea when I ovulate(don’t think he wants to know as it puts the pressure on him) so I’m flying solo on the 2ww. Which is where you guys come in grin
Anyone else in the same boat? Fancy talking each other down from THAT shelf in the supermarket??

Me! Ditto with my DH too... However the last time we dtd I had to rush him as he was off travelling and the pressure was almost too much... He guessed then I was ovulating Woops. but yes I'm 6 dpo and testing around 30th/31st.... But I want to test in about 4 days time. I need to sit on my hands or something. No symptoms though 😥

Somethininthewater Tue 17-Oct-17 22:05:23

It’s hellish isn’t it!! I poas today!! Wtf?! As if anything would show up today🤦🏻‍♀️
I’m doing my own head in thinking about it. Is this your first?

18mnthsandcounting Tue 17-Oct-17 22:09:47

Me too! I'm only 4dpo and want to test 28th... also not really had any signs apart from my temperature staying high. Do any of you ladies temp?

Somethininthewater Tue 17-Oct-17 22:45:57

This temping malarkey scares me! I’ve used the OPK for the first time. Got 2 lines so got busy. I’ve already got 3 DC but they all were pretty easy to conceive. This is our first month of TTC. If it doesn’t happen this month, we’re waiting until at least feb to try again

I ovulated on Saturday/Sunday. Due af 29th October. Going to start testing on the 26th. Ovulating on the weekend was bad timing for us as the kids (12,9,4) were of course home all weekend and they stay up a bit later because there is no school. It was like mission impossible trying to dtd but we got it done. Although we both felt very pressured this round.

I ovulated early cd11 of I'm guessing 33 day cycle (it's between 29 and 34... Never the same) hoping that's ok so I'm just constantly thinking about it and I need to stop argh.This is my 3rd. I have 2 DDs but have had 1 Chem and 1 mmc too. 😕 One week tomorrow since I ov .. Hoping for some signs of implantation from now on ... Nothing major, occasional feeling like I've got an upset tummy but nothing else.

I’m not 100% but I think af is due on 2nd nov. That’s going by the last af. If going by when I ovulated though, it could be 29th. Who the hell knows?! Only a few days post ov so not e petting symptoms yet. Ugh this waiting around is annoying!!

Somethininthewater Wed 18-Oct-17 16:23:39

Am I imagining the tiiiiiniest of pathetic lines on the right one??

Somethininthewater Wed 18-Oct-17 16:26:04

I think I’m seeing things!! My poas addiction has driven me to the brink of craziness!!

Hulaballoo Wed 18-Oct-17 20:10:21

I can see something but not sure if it's a line or a splodge... If it's more of a splodge may be faulty... I haven't poas yet... Only 7dpo and just no way I'll see something this soon...😖 slight twinges today but I may be just imagining them now.

Hulaballoo Wed 18-Oct-17 20:12:28

I think we're about the same...My positive opk was Wednesday so I probably ov then on Friday if ov happens a couple of days after? Af due 29/30th

Somethininthewater Wed 18-Oct-17 20:16:21

I’ve been in bed the past hour with horrible period-type pains really low down. Feel like I’ve been kicked in the lady garden!!

Somethininthewater Wed 18-Oct-17 20:17:28


18mnthsandcounting Wed 18-Oct-17 21:59:08

How many dpo are you somethininthewater? I also had bad pains in my ovaries this morning only lasted about 10 mins x

Somethininthewater Wed 18-Oct-17 22:44:13

4 I think. But I’m doubting myself now. I’ve still got the pains now, though not as bad

18mnthsandcounting Thu 19-Oct-17 20:48:15

I'm 6dpo and negative test today but it's still to early really to tell

Somethininthewater Thu 19-Oct-17 21:39:55

It’s hard to be patient isn’t it!!

Mulberrywhite Thu 19-Oct-17 22:10:04

Our dates are exact @some. Was so tempted to take a test tonight. Ahhh

Somethininthewater Fri 20-Oct-17 07:35:22

I’ve stocked up on tests(eBay cheapies). Who am I kidding... I’m going to do one right now!! I’m a fool! Dreamt last night I was getting weird looking BFPs. It’s taking over my life!!

Mulberrywhite Fri 20-Oct-17 08:18:49

Good luck!! Hope it’s the BFP, dreaming positively is a good sigh. Keep us up to date

Somethininthewater Fri 20-Oct-17 09:37:26

Obv it was a bFATn! I’m a tit!

Mulberrywhite Fri 20-Oct-17 10:01:27

Ah no your not! It is so tempting. I am going to take a test Sunday. Think that makes it 7 days before period. You want to test together then? It’s going to be so hard to wait

Somethininthewater Fri 20-Oct-17 10:02:53

Yes!! I’ll hold off until Sunday with you. Thanks! I’m still having a(small!) glass of wine tonight...!

Lollylollypopxo Fri 20-Oct-17 10:26:14

I'm in the exact same boat. Should be around 7DPO and I think I've already tested twice 🙈 Only with ebay cheapies mind. I already feel as though I'm out this month 😢
