Hi there currently month two ttc ... I'm 7 days post ov looking for some testing buddies. I have two little ones already , 30 and live in NI. Let the symptoms spotting and lunatic behavior commence! 😂

Me! I’m 2dpo, third month TTC since a miscarriage at 12 weeks in December 2017.
All my common sense goes out the window during the TWW, at 2dpo I’m already thinking “hmm is it too early to test?” Crazy woman 🤦🏻‍♀️😂
Good luck, FX for March positives! ☺️

Hi smile
Im currently ttc for 6 months with 2 early miscarriages. Now 13 dpo period is due on saturday. Feeling nausious for 3 days now, tired, hormonal, peeing every 5 mins etc really hoping now is the time but worried its just all in my head!! Scared to test cos i dont want to see a negative and i dont want to miscarry again

Good luck ladies!! It's so rubbish isn't it brings u to the brink of insanity. And to throw a spammer in works have scan tomorrow on ovaries and womb as all of sudden had a few reallly long cycles like 5 + weeks! Got a peak on Cb digi this day last week and bd loooadsssss . But here's what's confusing I have what feels like ov cramps ( cos I always get them day 18 and know when to opk) and I just did another IC ov yest and it's a faint pos??? What if last week wasn't ov!! And we literally shagged 1839292 times inside four days for nothing 😂😂😂 surely I wouldn't ovulate on day 25 for God's sake

lolacola13 Tue 13-Mar-18 22:36:01

Lotus1990 that's sounding good how ur holding off til Saturday I don't know

Hi I'm 8dpo (I think, new to opk) ttc for 9 months post miscarriage at 12 weeks and erpc.

Currently trying to talk myself out of testing too soon.

Lotus1990 Tue 13-Mar-18 23:04:22

Lolacola13 i have no idea how im holding off cos im so eager to see but scared to see a negative if i test too early lol. What if im just having phantom pregnancy! I think im mad anyway lol

lolacola13 Tue 13-Mar-18 23:25:44

Anyone know what the hcg level for internet cheapies is? I have loads here but I read it's 20 and first response is like under 10 so detects it quicker .

24Juniper Wed 14-Mar-18 07:47:31

Good luck ladies! I'm only 7dpo and not testing early as AF is like clockwork so going to sit on my hands and wait!

@lolacola13 I think that is correct, if you're testing early better with the frer ones although someone said Superdrug ones are quite low too?

Eeeeek2 Wed 14-Mar-18 08:35:43

@lolacola13 I'm holding you to blame for this, I researched your question. The answer is they are sensitive but the lines stay very light for a while ie missable/ ambiguous lines. So I thought I better test this out. Cue fmu on 9dpo ......

Eeeeek2 Wed 14-Mar-18 08:36:34

.... tiny vvvv faint line so frer

Eeeeek2 Wed 14-Mar-18 08:39:31

In real life you can see a line in the cheapie. Ahhhhh it's only taken 9 months, hoping this one sticks, it going to be a very long 7 weeks.

Fingers crossed for more pfb

lolacola13 Wed 14-Mar-18 10:19:42

Omg eeeek!! I think that's a congratulations 🎈🎉.. that's a very good line to be getting at 9dpo, maybe u ovulated a day or two earlier ? Any app I'm on that's like unheard of u medical marvel u! I'm sure ur buzzing.

hayleyfx Wed 14-Mar-18 10:50:01

Congratulations @Eeeeek that’s what my positive looked like at 9dpo when I was pregnant last year! I hope it’s a sticky bean! ☺️
@lolacola yeah it seems to be pretty uncommon but happened to me too somehow lol! Also, I second what eeek said - when I was pregnant the frer line was very dark by about 13/14dpo however the internet cheapie was still very light, they picked it up at the same time as frer but they didn’t get darker until a week or so later!

lolacola13 Wed 14-Mar-18 11:18:38

How do u know the EXACT date u ov then. I got my peak Tuesday morning last week but how do I know the egg was released that day could have the next. Prob have completely mistimed the bding 😂🙈

Eeeeek2 Wed 14-Mar-18 11:44:12

First month doing okps so I had a almost positive on 3/3 pm then positive on the 4/3 fmu (but apparently you shouldn't use fmu) and then the line was almost no existent on the pm of the 4/3

Apparently you ovulate 24-36 hours after positive so I think I ovulated on the 5th (but could of been the 4th) so by going by the 5th I'm 9dpo (could be 10)

Period not due until Tuesday/Wednesday next week

Eeeeek2 Wed 14-Mar-18 11:49:08

Have you read about SMEP
Did it this month, but looking back over my app it looks like I was concentrating too late in the month as once I put a positive opk in this month it brought fertile period forward by 4 days

Also used pre-seed for the first time this month.

lolacola13 Wed 14-Mar-18 13:54:40

It's very interesting maybe give it a go next month. I didn't twice on peak day and the day after but this egg way sounds better lol makes more sense as ur egg can be slow to hatch lol

lolacola13 Wed 14-Mar-18 13:55:03

Dtd twice on ov peak day that should say lol

hayleyfx Wed 14-Mar-18 14:24:52

I’m not 100% sure of the day I ovulate but the day after a positive OPK I get some cramps and heavy CM, so I’m pretty sure I O the day after positive OPK, af then shows 14 days later, bang on time. Temping would give you a more accurate result but that’s too stressful for me lol.
In Jan and Feb we DTD every single day of my fertile window and I didn’t get pregnant, last October when I did get pregnant we had only DTD 3 times my whole fertile window so I’ve tried to relax a bit more this month. I hadn’t heard of the SMEP but it looks like we followed that this month! DTD every other day or so then three days in a row after positive OPK! Fingers crossed it has worked! 🤞🏼

Hi I'm 7/8 dpo. Got a positive opk last Wednesday pm and some really bad cramps which wernt as bad the next day so I'm assuming I ovd Wednesday. This is my 1st cycle off the mini pill so no idea if what I'm feeling is normal or pregnancy related. Been feeling a bit nauseas, had a bit of aching low down and in my lower back/hips. Have also been really irritable the past few days which is unusual but like I say I have no idea If this is just normal monthly stuff lol really hoping for that bfp though

lolacola13 Wed 14-Mar-18 17:34:58

Hopefully we get our bfp.... sharpie have u had normal period yet off the pill from my memory I was quick to get normal cycle and conceived within weeks coming off cerazette .

lolacola13 Wed 14-Mar-18 17:35:27

SHARNIE!!! Not sharpie. Fml lol xx

Sharnie44 Thu 15-Mar-18 06:56:13

Don't worry I've been called worse lol Yh I got my withdrawal bleed as soon as I stopped the pill. I said I wouldn't go crazy and do opks and temping but as soon as TTC became real I brought them all lol hopefully I'm lucky like yu then and catch straight away that would be amazing.

Sharnie44 Thu 15-Mar-18 06:58:30

How old were yu when yu had your other 2 if yu don't mind me asking lol I'm 27 and Just keep panicking that I've left it really late and I'm going to find it difficult TTC because I'm older
