I have 11 days before af is due - we only dtd on cd6 and I have a 29 day cycle so I am not holding out much hope, but still symptom spotting if anyone wants to join me in the craziness of ttc !

MrsLCW Mon 28-May-18 17:30:43

11 days til AF for me too... I'll join the countdown! When are you planning on testing? X

HidCat Mon 28-May-18 18:15:00

I'm in the TWW now, about 5dpo so AF due around 5th June. Desperate to POAS even though I know it's quite probably negative 🙈

Gracesmom28 Mon 28-May-18 18:21:34

Hi ladies, 8 days until af due for me, currently 7DPO and time feels at a standstill! I have already poas a couple of times but obviously too soon even if I was pregnant. I’m planning on testing on Wednesday! Fingers crossed for you all xx

Tidyhomewannabe Mon 28-May-18 18:35:36

Af is due on the 8th but I have my mum visiting that weekend, if I’m having any signs, I may do a frer on the Wednesday/Thursday so I can get my head around the results and relax while they’re visiting. I think it’s highly unlikely for me this time but it doesn’t stop me wondering what if ......,
Fx we all get the results we’re after!

Af due on Saturday, currently 8dpo and symptom spotting like crazy and dying to test but I know it’s too soon and just can’t deal with a bfn. This is my last month trying then I’m giving up on the idea for a while I think, it’s too draining getting your hopes up every month.. sorry bit negative just hate the 2ww🙃😩

ronniemipperton Mon 28-May-18 22:08:44

Don’t worry @peggyssue I’m with you. I’m also 8dpo but pretty much symptomless. Feeling a bit fed up and despondent this month tbh. Fingers crossed for everyone.

Tidyhomewannabe Tue 29-May-18 07:02:56

peggysue ttc is an emotional rollercoaster, I hope that this is your month!

With my 3 children, my first sign was veiny boobs, dark nipples and a metal taste so I knew before testing. Yesterday I noticed veiny boobs but I’m still bf my youngest and I don’t know whether they’ve always looked like it and I haven’t noticed before confused I keep telling myself that there is no chance this month, only dtd on cd6 but the possibility still takes over and it’s all I seem to be thinking about ! Frustrating isn’t it x

Tidyhomewannabe Tue 29-May-18 07:03:46

Oh and 10 days left now grin

Gracesmom28 Tue 29-May-18 07:20:05

@peggysue it’s so frustrating, I go a bit crazy in the tww. FX for you this month x

I find myself completely obsessed with all things conception and pregnancy!

What’s everyone doing to keep busy over the next few days? I’m working today and tomorrow and going away on Saturday so hoping that’ll distract me a little! Hoping af stays away!! Xx

Tidyhomewannabe Tue 29-May-18 07:47:28

I’ve got work this morning, oh and the kids are off this week so will possibly go out for a walk later. The 3 kids keep me physically busy - hence the tidyhomewannabe title, there’s always something to do, but my mind will keep wandering off! May try and sort dd dance costumes, they need alterations so that may help me completely concentrate on something else xx

MrsLCW Tue 29-May-18 07:52:43

It's so hard isn't it ladies?? I'd love to be one of these people who finds out they're pregnant at like 9 weeks (happened to my friend - she thought she'd developed a dairy intolerance!!)
I'm now 5DPO and time feels like it's at a stand still, but I know I'll be testing early as soon as I know there's a slight chance! X

Delilah7 Tue 29-May-18 07:53:35

hoping I can join you smile
depending on whether I go from when my withdrawal bleed was I could be due Friday if not Monday.
So convinced somethings going on though. Strange taste in mouth, boobs are HUGE and I'm used to big boobs but these just feel different lol. Xx

Delilah7 Tue 29-May-18 07:54:18

I'm 12 dpo btw smile

Peggyssue Tue 29-May-18 07:54:23

Thank you, 9dpo today but holding out until at least Thursday to test my partners working away so will be alone and won’t be able to resist.

I’m working mornings today and tomorrow and have ALOT of housework to get down so at least that’ll keep me busy for the next couple of days, lots of early nights so the days go faster🙈😂

Gracesmom28 Tue 29-May-18 08:34:07

It really is so hard. I feel this whole journey has really changed me. With my DD I unexpectedly fell pregnant at 19 and DH 21. DH and I focused on her, work and getting married. Hence the big age gap (she’s 9 now and an absolute dream) I can’t get my head around how difficult TTC is and the heartache that comes with it! I had a miscarriage in May last year and nothing since. I’ve been reading lots about TTC, using apps, tracking CM. Spent a year just ‘seeing what happens’ but only obsessingly TTC for a few months! Feels like forever! How long have you all been TTC? xx

MrsLCW Tue 29-May-18 08:41:55

I'm feeling mega nauseous today... praying it's super early symptoms, as I was real sick with both previous pregnancies from early on!
I lost my first baby at 9 weeks to a MMC, and then our little girl was born sleeping at 20 weeks in Feb.
Both times we have fallen in the first cycle of trying, and so I'm hopeful we'll manage soon this time too, but for me personally I know that a positive pregnancy test is the start of a very long road.
Good luck everyone! Xx

Peggyssue Tue 29-May-18 09:10:45

Sorry to hear about your loses. I’ve had a few symptoms but don’t wanna get my hopes up as they’re all so similar to af symptoms..

I’ve been actively trying for just over a year now, it does become quite an obsession and then you get people saying just relax and stop thinking about it and it’ll happen- if only it was that easy lol

HidCat Tue 29-May-18 11:23:21

@MrsLCW fingers a crossed it's an early sign and third time lucky for a baby to take home.

@Peggyssue you have more self control than I do!

Peggyssue Tue 29-May-18 14:41:01

I have no self control lol, I tested at 7dpo I don’t know why cos it was obviously going to be negative, I think the reason I’m putting it off so much is because i don’t wan to see another bfn

Kr250710 Tue 29-May-18 15:10:20

I’m also in the tww! Cd 22 and according to Ovia 8days till test day. Been feeling dizzy and sick all day today and spotted but trying so hard to not think anything of it!!

Fx for everyone x

HidCat Tue 29-May-18 16:08:57

@Kr250710 that could be an implantation bleed if your 8days off still!

Peggyssue Tue 29-May-18 16:27:26

Just tested (don’t know why, I just can’t help myself😩😩) bfn as expected, only 9dpo- have one more text which I’m saving for Thursday then no more tests until I hopefully miss af

Gracesmom28 Tue 29-May-18 20:24:29

Oh no Peggysue I’m itching to test I’m trying to hold off xx

Gracesmom28 Tue 29-May-18 20:25:15

Mrslcw sorry about your losses fx for you xx
