Looks like another 2ww for me, anyone else just Starting? I'm only 2DPO so still 12 days to get through!

Age - 25
TTC #2
Cycle 5
CD 16 on a 27 day cycle (usually)
Only 2 DPO
AF due 25th July

Firsttimer16 Fri 13-Jul-18 13:02:04

I'll join! 5/6dpo - af due in about 9 days so I'm going to start mid next week because I definitely didn't do a test the other day knowing it was impossible to be bfp!

I'm on cycle 4 ttc no 2.
Did smep this month and really have everything possible crossed but also not getting any symptoms so 🤷‍♀️
The wait is killing me.

I’m 3dpo, only managed to dtd 3 times in fertile week but they were day before, day of and Day after ovulation so keeping my fingers crossed.

My last pregnancy (mmc) we only did it once!

Got a good feeling about this month.

Hi lovely ladies, Can I join?

Age - 30
TTC #1
Cycle 2
CD 22 on a hugely irregular cycle, last one was 56 days this one is looking more normal!

AF due 22nd July

No symptoms at all at present, and have a feeling this is not our month but if I can get my cycle shorter I will be very happy!

What date is everyone going to test?

TinyPaws Fri 13-Jul-18 13:16:55

Also 2dpo here! Had medicated IUI on Wednesday, keeping everything crossed that I get to catch one and keep one this time!

Hello smile first off I'd like to say @TheHalfBloodPrincess I love your user name!

Age 27
TTC #1
Cycle #2

I am completely unsure how many days PO I am, I'd like to say 9 BUT I think I may have ovulate late so it could be a lot less. I only use an app to track ovulation and my body is still regulating after coming off the pill. According to the app, I ovulated 4/5th and AF due 19th. Fingers crossed this is our cycle!
I did have some cramps yesterday which is why I'm thinking it was a late ovulation but I really have no idea what my body is doing at the moment! 🤷‍♀️

alicepol Fri 13-Jul-18 13:19:57

Hi everyone!
I'm not as hopeful this month as only managed to BD twice in fertile week, 3 days before ovulation and day of ovulation so trying to keep my mind from going crazy like last cycle!
I will wait until 23rd to test (maybe.. maybe not 😂) which will be 12dpo.
I'm hoping where I don't think it will happen this month I'm hoping it will stop me going crazy and testing everyday too early this time.

purplestar9 Fri 13-Jul-18 13:36:38

@alicepol it only takes the one lucky time! 😉
I literally have no idea right now when ovulation was for me so no idea if we managed to BD at the right time or not! I hope so but time will tell. I'm going to try and hold off testing until at least a few after AF is due (according to my app) because I do think ovulation was later than it said. Who knew TTC was so technical!?

8DaysAWeek Fri 13-Jul-18 19:08:47

I think that's me in the 2ww. The last 3 months I've used opks, temped and tracked cm religiously. Not done any of that this month as I was getting too obsessed. I have been ill most of this month so sex has been down on the agenda. I reckon either I've completely missed O or I've caught it in the nick of time, purely going by previous O dates. Not feeling confident this month, but then last month we BD all over fertile week and BFN so who knows!!

CD - 19 of a 27/28 day cycle

Totally obsessed last month and tested both opks and PTs like a crazy lady. 🙄 tried to be a bit more chilled out this time around for my own sanity. 😂 Going to try and not test until AF due 😳 #needwillpower

winterwarmers Fri 13-Jul-18 19:25:42

HettyBettyBoo Fri 13-Jul-18 19:51:21


Age 30
Ttc #1
Cycle 14
CD 19 (usual length 28- 32 days)

Got a positive opk on CD 11 and 12 (usually CD 14). Already driving myself mad as took a test this morning and got an evap....why am I even testing so early!?
Tried using preseed and a mooncup this month.
Hoping for BFP's for everyone

Newbie21 Fri 13-Jul-18 20:23:49

I'm with you!

TTC #2
Cycle 1 of actively trying since MMC in April
CD 20
DPO 5/6
AF due 21/7

Only tracked ovulation via an ovulation calculator so no accuracy whatsoever but dtd pretty much daily over the relevant period as we're on holiday so not having to deal with life stresses! Hoping that the happy holiday mood will lead to a BFP next week. I will test on 22/7 if AF no show but not before (she says! I blatantly crack by Thursday!)

TTC #3
1st cycle.
Had coil out on 14th june during AF
AF was possibly due a couple of days ago but as ive got zero symptoms i am trying to convince myself not to test. im busy all weekend, so will test monday if no af by then

alicepol Sat 14-Jul-18 05:31:22

Recognise your name from last month @8DaysAWeek nice (not nice) to see you again.
I'm the same, not very hopeful for this month due to hardly any BD, so not going crazy with thinking when to test as I don't think it will happen this month.

winterwarmers Sat 14-Jul-18 07:11:47

3rd day of temp rise so i definitely ovulated on cd 19, so 3dpo and i am so hoping this is the month

BasinHaircut Sat 14-Jul-18 07:43:33

Can I join please?

Cycle#0 (will explain grin)
3-4 dpo

I say cycle 0 as only came off mini pill on 20th June and haven’t even had so much as a withdrawal bleed let alone a period.

HOWEVER DS was conceived in similar circumstances (pregnancy was dated from day after my last pill) so I started doing OPKs on Monday and got a positive one, and another Tuesday morning so I could have ovulated Tuesday or Wednesday.

I’m not getting my hopes up as I know it’s more likely that it’s just my body sorting itself out and probably not even ovulation, and we’d be incredibly lucky to get pregnant so quickly twice, but who knows!

Good luck to everyone for this cycle

FlapJackered Sat 14-Jul-18 08:37:31

@alicepol i think you did pretty well Dtd twice in the fertile week. I think some research does say it is better not to go everyday.

@8DaysAWeek - It's so easy to get over obsessed with it all. That is definitely me this month. Definitely need to find a way to chill out about it more next cycle.

I have had the 5th day of temp rise but for some reason Natural cycles app still hasn't pin pointed ovulation. It's really frustrating!

TheHalfBloodPrincess Sat 14-Jul-18 17:43:10

Anyone up for some symptom spotting?

I’ll go first. (Although I know it’s too early really and they’re not ‘symptoms’ as such but I can’t help myself 🙈)

Lots of creamy cm
Had to get up to pee last night
Weird feeling in back of throat

alicepol Sat 14-Jul-18 18:26:50

Nothing here! Only 3dpo though but still just not expecting much so maybe why I haven't been symptom spotting this month like I usually do

8DaysAWeek Sat 14-Jul-18 18:31:54

Yeah I recognised you too from last month @alicepol ! We must have very similar cycles, af due on the 25th for me too. I conceived DS with no tracking (wouldn't have had a clue what all the acronyms even mean) and on the very first occasion we had unprotected sex since being together, so it really does only take
one time!! Fingers crossed we timed it ok.

@FlapJackered it's so easy to get carried away with it all. I think the deflation from the last few months of testing and BFNs made me just give up all the tracking. I feel so much more at ease because I don't know exactly when I O'd, so hopefully I won't be tempted to test at 8-9dpo!!

alicepol Sat 14-Jul-18 19:02:05

Same here @8DaysAWeek with DS it happened the first month of 'trying'. I wouldn't even call it trying as again no tracking etc just BD alot 😂

TakingtheLeap Sat 14-Jul-18 22:45:50

FlapJackered I've recently switched from Natural Cycles to Fertility Friend. I found it was overestimating my coverline and not recognising ovulation whereas FF does pick it up.

Currently 9dpo but starting to get typical pre-period cramps. TTC no.1, cycle no.5.

FlapJackered Sun 15-Jul-18 08:00:08

@TakingtheLeap really, that's interesting. Now I have put the temps into Fertility friend it has found my ovulation, but Natural cycles still hasn't. I emailed NC and they said apparently because my last cycle was 56days, the app doesn't believe I can ovulate so early. 🤦🏼‍♀️ they even sent me a message on the app saying 'Sorry you're not ovulating...'!

@8DaysAWeek - that is great you're feeling more chilled. I think once my cycles are less erratic I will do the same. The last few cycles have just been so crazy my fertile days have been between cd18-46 days so the opks etc do help to narrow down the fertile time. They do also make me into a crazy poas lady 😂

I am not getting any symptoms really. Just the very occasional twinge in my boobs. I think I am a bit early for symptoms yet though.

8DaysAWeek Sun 15-Jul-18 08:16:51

Then definitely worthwhile using opks etc @FlapJackered!

My cycles are still settling down after stopping breastfeeding but have been between 27-32 days so I can still time it near the middle without wearing myself out BDing all the time.

Though, I must say, I was pretty chilled out over fertile week but now that I'm in the 2ww the chill is disappearing 😬 hate this bit!
