I'm 8DPO today and am probably going to test on Thursday (trying to hold off until then anyway!)
Anyone else planning to test around that time? I have a 10 day LP so testing then should give me warning about whether AF is coming or not.
I'm obsessively symptom spotting even though I'm aware that pre AF symptoms and pregnancy symptoms are pretty much the same at this point.
It'll be DC3 for us if all goes well but I'm still just as excitable TTC this time around blush

Good Luck @NoseringGirl Im 9dpo today and also have a 10 day LP, so not long left to wait! I've been symptom spotting like crazy this month, its hard not too. x

NoseringGirl Mon 18-Jun-18 12:24:39

It's really difficult not to! I swear time slows down at this point in the cycle as well.
Good luck to you!

Hi @noseringGirl 👋 we were on the waiting to ttc thread together.

I’m 11dpo AF due tomorrow or the next day. Have been testing since 8dpo.... bfns

Surely if it had happened it would show by now? I’m driving myself crazy!

How soon did you get your bfp with your first two?


NoseringGirl Mon 18-Jun-18 12:45:22

Hello @BeeKeeping! I didn't get a positive until 12DPO with DS2, so I reckon you've still got hope yet. Fx for you!
It took nearly 18 months each for my last two 😬 I wasn't ovulating though (I have PCOS). DS1 took 3 round of clomid and then with DS2 I was on metformin, stuck to a low GI diet and had acupuncture. I'm ovulating fairly regularly now though so hoping it doesn't take quite as long!

haha @NoseringGirl it really does! Were just lucky we don't have to wait 2 weeks I suppose, when are you going to test? I had what looks like an implantation dip yesterday and it rise up again this morning, not sure whats going on. I just think I've my hopes up now and set for disappointment.

Prembabymum Mon 18-Jun-18 12:56:34

Can i join please! I'm 7dpo and desparate to test!! Trying to wait until sat but no doubt I'll cave early!

NoseringGirl Mon 18-Jun-18 12:59:42

@Tinker315b hopefully that implantation dip is a good sign! I'm trying to hold out until Thursday when I'm due on but might crack and test Wednesday!

Of course you can @Prembabymum! Good luck with holding out, the temptation to test early usually gets too much for me. I probably won't be a good influence grin

Took an ic today as i'm in spain i have a clear blue digital i am going to wait until after i'm late to use my clear blue digital

winterwarmers Mon 18-Jun-18 14:50:42

this is my ic from today

Tinker315b Mon 18-Jun-18 15:08:59

How many dpo are you @winterwarmers?

winterwarmers Mon 18-Jun-18 15:10:31

i'm not sure because i stopped tracking this cycle, but af should be due wednesday

Prembabymum Mon 18-Jun-18 15:24:23

@winterwarmers I don't want to get your hopes up but I think I see a line on that ic. I have been wrong in the past about my own tests though; keep us posted!

Prembabymum Mon 18-Jun-18 15:26:06

@noseringgirl when I say I'm nkt testing I may or may not include ics in that! I dont even count them as testing these days because I do so many of them! Keeping my frers for when I see a hint of something! It's such a horrid waiting game!

Prembabymum Mon 18-Jun-18 15:28:43


NoseringGirl Mon 18-Jun-18 15:38:26

Haha @Prembabymum I like your style!! I also save FRERs and mostly use ICs. Digitals are only ever for special occasions 🤣

@winterwarmers I can't see it but I'm on my phone and am always a bit rubbish at seeing the line. Best of luck!

Tinker315b Mon 18-Jun-18 15:44:28

Good luck everyone, keep us updated! smile

I'm 11dpo. Don't think there's anything there but then ..... I think there might be

winterwarmers Mon 18-Jun-18 16:36:40

thanks, i'm waiting till i'm late to use the clearblue as they are not that sensitive and i havnt seen any tests in shops here

Prembabymum Mon 18-Jun-18 16:54:43

@calmisthemantra I can see a hint on the bottom one... I'm terrible for line eyes though! Anyone else see it? What's it like in real life?

Htaylor182 Mon 18-Jun-18 17:12:37

Can't attach my photo but posted on seperate thread evap lines.
I'm jumping on this post too as desperate to test again (it's so hard to hold off isn't it!!) I took one this morning but a line showed after the 10 min window so probably counts as invalid so I'm desperate to test again arghh

Calmisthemantra Mon 18-Jun-18 17:25:49

@Prembabymum it's no clearer in real life confused

DaisyMay25 Mon 18-Jun-18 17:32:44

Joining if that's okay?
I'm 9dpo and I can never wait so I seem to find myself testing from 8dpo each cycle on ics not even a squinter so far.
Think I'll test with frer on Thursday, I'll be 12dpo so if that's negative I'll bow out for the month.
How long has everybody been trying?

Tinker315b Mon 18-Jun-18 20:50:20

Hi @DaisyMay25 when is af due? I have been trying for 6 months, not very long but still long enough when you really want it to happen. How long have you been trying? X

Doglady28 Mon 18-Jun-18 21:35:24

I'm roughly 12 DPO and AF due tomorrow. Not sure when to test 🤔
