Hi all,

Just started the 2WW (I think) as I’m pretty sure I ovulated yesterday/today based on Flo & the bloatedness I’ve had...just wondered if anyone was at the same stage as me and how they were feeling about it all? This is TTC #1 for me xx

LilyLolo81 Thu 25-Jan-18 21:13:20

I’m just starting the tww too and already feeling like a crazy woman. I’m ttc #1 also xx

Hi! I’ve just started the tww too. I’ve tried to join the other groups but they’re very full already so would be good to settle here for now! smile
This is ttc #2
This is cycle 1 for me.

Ahhh, I’m pleased I’m not on my own! Any idea how many DPO you are, Hun? AF is due on the 9th Feb for me...I get the feeling this will be a long two weeks! Xx

DaisyMay25 Thu 25-Jan-18 21:20:39

Pretty sure I'm ovulating today so can I join a day early please?

HappyThoughts7 Thu 25-Jan-18 21:27:28

Absolutely @Daisy - the more the merrier! Yea, I think threads get busy pretty quickly, so thought I’d set up a new one so we can all keep each other company leading up to AF due (or testing...eeek!) dates xx

Dragonandthewolf Thu 25-Jan-18 21:32:03

More the merrier!! smile

I’m CD15 and think I ovulated today or last night. I had 2 days of positive opk so has been a little confusing! If tomorrow is still high then perhaps I’m not going to ovulate this month or later than usual.
Looks like we’re at similar points!

I am half way through my tww and am going crazy! High as a kite one moment thinking this could be our month then crash down the next thinking it can't be possible. I imagine having babies and pregnancy sticks flying round my head like a cartoon! Good luck everyone

HappyThoughts7 Thu 25-Jan-18 21:36:28

Yeah, I’m CD15 too @Dragon! Hmmm, maybe you ovulated overnight & that has something to do with positive OPKs over two days? I’ve never used them though, so that might just be me talking rubbish! Xx

HappyThoughts7 Thu 25-Jan-18 21:37:59

Oh bless you, @hope! My brain feels a bit like that tbh, and I’m a week behind you, so I can’t begin to imagine how you’re feeling! Fingers crossed it will be for you. Will you test early or wait to see if AF appears? Good luck! Xx

Hopehope20 Thu 25-Jan-18 21:55:49

I go up and down! I want to wait another week for AF but some first response tests have arrived in the post who knows! It is quite nice having some poas free days what with all the ovulation and pregnancy tests! I promised myself this month I was going to relax but already symptom spotting like an insane woman!

Hopehope20 Thu 25-Jan-18 21:56:55

How long have you been trying for? I hope your TWW goes quickly for you

DaisyMay25 Thu 25-Jan-18 21:59:42

@Hopehope20 I'm terrible for symptom spotting too! I'll probably start testing 8dpo I'll test every other day, think I go a bit test crazy though

Hopehope20 Thu 25-Jan-18 22:04:17

I think I ovulated late (which is a worry in itself in terms of short LP) but because of that I don't think anything would show up on a test for a while now. What tests do you use?

DaisyMay25 Thu 25-Jan-18 22:08:40

@Hopehope20 I use onestep ones off amazon, they're cheap enough but I had a stash of those, some cheap ones from home bargains and some FRER so if I get a positive on a cheap one I can confirm it

HappyThoughts7 Thu 25-Jan-18 22:11:28

Oh bless you, @hope, although no judgement here; I know I’ll probably be exactly the same! Maybe hold off if you think you can, so any positive results will be really clear for you...and enjoy knowing they’re in the drawer just in case you can’t resist!

This is only our first month of trying, so not really sure what to expect, just trying to relax and not overthink it if I can (easier said than done!). Fingers crossed this is a lucky thread for us! X

Dragonandthewolf Thu 25-Jan-18 22:19:39

I’ve got the amazon cheapies too, they’re addictive!

I’ll prob start testing from 10dpo. Who am I kidding.. it’ll prob be from 6dpo!

Dragonandthewolf Thu 25-Jan-18 22:21:57

Hope I think LP stays similar each month, so if you ovulate late your cycle should be longer. I think it’s more problematic if you ovulate too early in the cycle.

Running365 Thu 25-Jan-18 22:37:47

Please can I join you all for my third tww? Currently 4dpo (based on +OPKs over weekend). First month of actually trying to dtd at most fertile times but starting to worry/stress that it might take longer quite a while longer than we (I) naively expected! Spent way too much on FRER last 2 cycles so ordered some ic for next week. It's our 13 year anniversary next week (been together since we were 16) so would be a lucky surprise but that's probably wishful thinking...lots of luck and baby dust to you all over the coming weeks!

Millypad Thu 25-Jan-18 22:47:06

Hello! I am 2dpo I think, if I’ve actually ovulated for once! Haven’t been temping so not sure. May I join as a “possibly in 2ww, we’ll see in 2 weeks?!”

Millypad Thu 25-Jan-18 22:48:11

(Oh and I’m ttc #1 after one mc and 16 months of trying.)

pickupapenguin2 Fri 26-Jan-18 07:45:36

Can I join in too?! I’ve actually no idea what dpo I am as I didn’t use OPKs this month. I had loads of EWCM for a couple of days a couple of weekends ago so thought that was it but then about 3 days later I had another few days of EWCM so I might have ovulated later than I think.

I’m reckoning either 11dpo or 6 dpo....really wish I’d done OPKs lol. Trying to chill out about it this month but not having much luck! I’ve been having reflexology too so hoping I see some improvement to my cycle lengths with that.

FX for BFPs for everyone!!

Dragonandthewolf Fri 26-Jan-18 08:07:18

Ah running that would be lovely timing but don’t put pressure on yourself smile

Welcome milly sorry to hear about your mc.

So I’ve had another positive opk this morning, how strange! Slightly lighter than 2 days ago but still as dark as the control.

Dragonandthewolf Fri 26-Jan-18 08:08:09

penguin have you poas yet?!

pickupapenguin2 Fri 26-Jan-18 12:22:09

Did a IC this morning dragon but BFN. The more I think about it the more I think I’m more like 6-7dpo. I don’t think I’d have carried on getting EWCM for so long after OV.
