Hey everyone!

I’m currently only around 5dpo and the wait is killing me already!

Anyone want to join me to discuss symptoms and ‘patiently’ wait out the next few days? 😂

Hey. I'm 5dpo today. Its dragging alot! Only symptom I have is that I'm currently starving and I'm trying to tell myself that's something other than me just being greedy!! Any symptoms?

Michellebops Tue 26-Feb-19 18:43:13

I'm 2dpo and cramping.

Symptom spotting too early more like and probably something I ate 🤣

I'm 2 dpo and I dunno why but I'm feeling like I'm out already. Sorry to be a sad sack.

Michellebops Tue 26-Feb-19 18:51:34

Aww @pollyannatomnoddy there's plenty of hope, I'm planning to jump my oh tonight as according to my flo app there is still a chance.

Mseddy Tue 26-Feb-19 18:56:45

@pollyannatomnoddy your not a sad sack. It's just the horrible emotional rollercoaster of TTC! In reality I know my chances are slim to non in naturally TTC but I have a little hope each month as science can throw a curve ball occasionally! Try not to let it get you down and instead if you genuinely think your out think of all the things you can achieve between now and your next fertile window, that's what I try to do! I'm either super good and think I can shift a few more pounds before next time, or super bad and think of all the "none pregnancy foods" and alcohol I can squeeze in before it might be my last chance! Takes my mind off the TWW

Thanks guys, we're 8 months into trying and it's getting to me a wee bit. Thanks for the advice @mseddy, going to try to concentrate on other things till the ttw is over. Might talk oh about having a break.
Keeping fingers crossed for you all x

Can I join? I am 8dpo and have all sorts of symptoms: dull cramps and headaches for 4 days now, a strange taste in my mouth, sensitive boobs and I feel soooo tired!

All of which could be great signs... but also not. It could all be in my head.

I don't think I can last another week (when AF is due) to test. Is there any chance I could get a positive this early if I am pregnant??

Hello! Can I join? I am 6dpo..
I'm technically not starting to ttc until after out holiday in a few weeks but we DTD on ovulation day unprotected (he pulled out.. but I'm not convinced it was 100% on time..)

Today I have been getting random burning all over my stomach, mild ache in the right side of my abdomen and back. And as I have been laying in bed there is a a weird sort of tingling feeling to the right of my belly button and my boobs have started hurting.

I think I am just symptom spotting... 🤔

I'm 8DPO today and not a symptom in sight! @Polly I'm 8 months in as well, it's a hard journey!! I think I'm less bothered by the TWW this time as we are currently going through fertility testing and it's taking my mind off it thinking about them results instead of POAS. I can't remember the last cycle I didn't POAS every day from 8dpo!

Chanel05 Fri 01-Mar-19 21:26:32

I’m in the tww also 8 months in!

sometimesalways Fri 01-Mar-19 22:29:19

It is so hard isn't it!! I POAS today, on DPO11, and negative. Possibly still early. But I admit I am not holding much hope any more. Maybe next cycle will be the lucky one! Gotta stay positive

Turlet Fri 01-Mar-19 22:52:55

Hi all,

Also in the TWW and it’s excruciating!! Think I’m 5DPO. Also did a test today but it was negative. Symptom spotting like crazy. Very slight dull cramp like aches, and dizziness. Had dizziness on my last pregnancy (MMC), so I’m hoping that it’s better news this time.

By the way, is 5DPO really too early to test? According to my app I’m due my period in 10 days.

Best of luck to all in this horrible, awful wait!

Michellebops Sat 02-Mar-19 07:56:20

5dpo is definitely too early. You may not have implantation yet. Then takes a few days.

Some people get faint positives at 9 or 20 dpo.

I had a mmc too so i understand.

I'm 6dpo today and doing my best not to symptom spot as last month I must have done about 6 tests all negative as I was convinced. This time I'm not planning on any or any early as that crushing disappointment it so difficult

Turlet Sat 02-Mar-19 10:14:48

Thanks for the message @Michellebops. It’s crap, but I hope we both have good news very soon. It’s nice to have people here who understand this level of crazy! grin I’ve tried to explain this to my OH but don’t think he really gets it!

Best of luck xx

I tested yesterday at 9dpo. BFN. I think I'm starting to see signs af is on her way. I'm just going with the flow, no more testing!

Turlet Sun 03-Mar-19 10:09:03

Sorry to hear that, Mseddy. But you just don’t know until it definitely comes. smile

I just downloaded a good app, called natural cycles. Seems it’s FDA approved and has been developed by gynecologists. Dunno, hope it will help. Weird thing is though that it’s giving different dates to the app I was using (Flo). So don’t know which is correct. Will use both as well as ovulation kits, and temperature mapping this month too. Hopefully it will work.

sometimesalways Sun 03-Mar-19 11:19:10

@Mseddy I am in the same situation! Starting to feel Af cramping now... I know there is still hope since it's not here yet but I don't feel very positive right now.

But maybe next month we'll get our BFP!

Mseddy Mon 04-Mar-19 18:06:45

I've been an emotional wreck all day, that's usually a sure sign AF is coming!! I got my blood results today to confirm I ovulated, so that's something positive I guess. Just DH results to wait on now.

Mseddy Tue 05-Mar-19 15:10:38

How is everyone getting on? I'm really not sure what is going on. I have zero symptoms (except hunger which isn't really rare for me!!) Not even pre AF symptoms except being a little emotional (again not abnormal for me any time of the month!!) I temp and usually get a huge drop 11dpo followed by AF later or the next day. Today is 11dpo and my temperature has risen. It's stressing me Out! I've gotten good at being negative about things, now I feel like this is really getting my hopes up!! And tomorrow when my temp drops and AF shows up im going to be even more gutted than I would have been today sad just needed to vent a little!

Michellebops Tue 05-Mar-19 16:27:02

I'm 9dpo now and boob are really sore, like stabbing pains but that can be af too.

Trying not to symptom spot and don't want the test early 🤞
