Hi ladies. We reached the max posts!! @BambiOnIce80 I'm feeling ok, just feel abit silly. My flo app says I'm due tomorrow but I am always 28 days and always have cramps which I don't have yet. How about you xx

BambiOnIce80 Wed 25-Jul-18 21:08:55

Don't feel silly! I'm usually 28 days, but my flo app says I'm not due until Monday this time (CD30). It's the first time I've added the OPK data, so seems I got the BFP on CD15 flo is assuming my cycle is going to be 30 days this time. I think it's more likely that I ovulated a day late this month, but will have to see what happens in a few more cycles to see if there's a trend (science brain is good for some things 😉). You may not be feeling like you're getting AF because you're not going to get AF 🤞

I've been quite chilled today. Busy at work and not letting myself dwell too much. Still feel like AF is around the corner, but I'm OK with that. What will be will be 🙂

Well done @Delilah7 for the new thread smile

Hey @Simplethings121, thanks for the message! I was exactly the same when I started, thought this can't be that bad then realised how traumatic waiting was! My DP was the same and I've had to keep explaining 'Now we need to wait 2 weeks, and if it doesn't happen we try again in another 2 weeks after that!'.

As for me at the mo, we're in the middle of fertile season and DTD isn't always as easy as we hope. Not managed one successful go yet and I'm predicted to ovulate at the weekend, aaaagh!

I’m TTC #1, Cycle 2 CD6 and anxious to pinpoint using OPKs a bit better this month.
I’m terribly anxious and convinced I cannot have children (no reason why this would be the case) we hear so much about the ‘risks’ of pregnancy and I’ve had my fair share of contraceptive mishaps but I’ve never been PG.
Gutted that I didn’t fall pregnant during Cycle 1 but I’m trying to remind myself that I don’t need to worry until it’s been a year!

Hi everyone! The old thread dropped off my watched list and have just seen the new thread, fingers crossed this will be our lucky thread!
How is everyone doing?
I am 4dpo but not feeling hopeful this month cause we only had sex once during our fw (although my boobs are killing me but that is defo not a sign this early is it)

CookieWaffle Wed 25-Jul-18 22:13:44

Hi ladies! @Patapouf you would not believe how anxious and paranoid I've been for years over whether I can get pregnant. Now I've had the chance to try I realise, yes it can take a long time for anyone at any age but it can be quick too and actually we can't predict either way how long it will take so we just have to try and see. Even if the odds are against us there's still a chance. Keeping my fingers crossed for you!

Hi everyone! I wasn’t on the first thread but I hope it’s ok to join in now.
We’re TTC #1. I could do with some advice actually!

I came off the pill on the 4th of July, cycle 1 began on the 8th of July. I had a positive OPK yesterday! That was CD17 (long cycles), we DTD the previous day, CD16, but DP didn’t fancy it yesterday sad if we DTD tonight CD18 and ideally tomorrow night too CD19 will that still give us a chance?

RanchoRelaxo Wed 25-Jul-18 22:39:37

@Hofty yea that is the ideal time to be doing it, a positive opk indicates you will ovulate within the next 2 days so sounds like perfect timing to me, good luck!

Hofty Wed 25-Jul-18 22:43:03

@RanchoRelaxo Thank you so much! You too!

CookieWaffle Wed 25-Jul-18 22:46:16

Welcome aboard @Hofty you're more than welcome here! I agree with rancho, definitely good on the timing.

Hofty Wed 25-Jul-18 22:50:18

Thank you so much @cookiewaffle! I’ve got everything crossed!

@CookieWaffle @RanchoRelaxo @sunshine1987 Thank you!!! I'm so shocked. Don't always believe in symptoms. I've not had many apart from CM. Keep the faith ladies!!! I'm gonna keep on here to update you guys and watch your journeys. I've got to go pick up a midwife pack from doctors. I'm so shoooooook!!!

@Hofty thank you!!! how're you today x

Hofty Thu 26-Jul-18 09:26:38

A little bit sad, we didn’t manage to DTD last night or the night before, CD17 and CD18 with a positive OPK. Never mind! There’s always next month.
