Anyone trying to get that BFP and want to join me on the journey?

What cycle you on? Is this your first baby?

Hi, I have three daughters and trying to conceive my 4th and final baby - fingers crossed . I have pcos and so I only have 2-3 periods a year! So it's really hard to know where I am to try so we kind of just go for it and when I 'feel' pregnant I start testing! Although we have been trying 3 months and I feel like I am but getting BFN last night I got a very faint positive one one of the eBay cheap ones but I don't know if I trust it! How about you what's your story xx

We have one daughter and trying for our second baby now. Only came off the implant at end of jan and had two 31 day cycles so thought there was a pattern emerging but this month af came 8 days early and was a shorter and lighter bleed than usual which threw me off hmm. So not really sure what’s going to happen this month! Using the Flo app which says ovulation should be this Saturday but I’ve had period pains since yesterday now so not even sure what’s going on.

Ah so your kind of in the same situation as me right now where anything could happen! I don't know anymore if I will wake up and get a BFP or my period will start! I was so sure this time with literally every symptom going! I keep trying to not test but find myself creating new symptoms and doing another test! Xx

Hi, turning to the internet to help keep me sane. We've been trying for 8 months now and nothing. I just took a test today I was so convinced I was pregnant (AF due in two days) its stark white. Now I just wish AF would show so I can move on!

This tww business is literal torture!

Fingers crossed for you if you are still in it smile

LITTLEPICKLES88 Thu 18-Apr-19 17:48:05

I think I still in it because at has not shown up however ... this isn't unusual for me so it's kind of I won't know until it does which could be months! It's like a forever wait for me! I'm convinced my boobs feel heavier, I have been having sharp shock feeling to womb area, and really weird dreams - but I worry I make these symptoms happen with hoping I am! I know how u feel! When the test is WHITE! And u can't even squint a line ! It makes me so cross! I feel like I'm going mad that's why I was hoping to find some ladies to keep me sane and help each other smile xx

The tww is literally torture. I also find my self having symptoms and I get to the point where I’m sure I’m making stuff up but I genuinely feel these things. My flo app also randomly changed my ovulation date to today but I guess that would tie in with the pains I was getting today.

LITTLEPICKLES88 Thu 18-Apr-19 21:21:26

I just did another one of my eBay stick tests and it's a BFN sad I convince myself a BFP is round the corner then this happens x

LITTLEPICKLES88 Fri 19-Apr-19 10:02:24

Another BFN this morning I need to give up 😫😫😫

LITTLEPICKLES88 Fri 19-Apr-19 22:26:28

Babyjourney2 any luck
Today?? Xx

Hi to all
Hope you don't mind me jumping on this too. I've been trying to conceive since November and I feel like I'm going mad. Hoping someone can tell me I'm normal and every woman feels the same!

I got a BFP in January at 4 weeks and misscarried the following day. I didn't think it would hit me that hard because I was barely pregnant then it was all gone but I was devastated.
Since then have carried on as normal trying (I'm not doing ovulation tests or anything) and every month when I get my period I just feel so down. Everyone says just relax and I seriously don't know how to push the thought of wanting to be pregnant out of my mind.

LITTLEPICKLES88 Wed 24-Apr-19 12:01:51

@Samantha11K hey Samantha sorry to hear about your mc same for me last year and we are now trying this is month three, these are my tests from this morning but no BFP sad wouldn't let me upload pic

Samantha11K Wed 24-Apr-19 12:09:45

@LITTLEPICKLES88 thank you and sorry to hear about your loss also. Fingers crossed for you.

I just feel like I had that one little glimpse of what it was like to be pregnant and then it was taken away from me. I feel for any woman that went through the same or had MC even later than I did.

So this month I'm hoping it will be the month 🤞 I'm due period in 7 days

LITTLEPICKLES88 Wed 24-Apr-19 16:41:38

@Samantha11K yes I know exactly what you mean, I knew I was pregnant for a week I was secretly stroking my tummy keeping it a secret your mind starts getting ahead thinking of the future and I just couldn't bribe it when I mc it's horrible. I want this to be my month too, I have pcos so my periods are rare and not on time sometimes I can miss a few months so it's hard to track where I am, I was convinced I was pregnant so exhausted., rash on belly and back, feeling sick in the evenings, belly womb feels fuller but tests coming back BFN so I don't know if I am
Making it up xx

Samantha11K Wed 24-Apr-19 17:01:26

@LITTLEPICKLES88 I know that feeling too! It's like your mind is convincing you that you might be pregnant so all the symptoms just seem to appear then it's so disappointing when you come on your period. It must be so difficult having PCOS too as you don't know what a normal cycle is.

I suppose I'm lucky that my periods have been super regular since coming off the pill but they have only been light and short which did cause a bit of concern but Doctor seems to think it's normal for me.

Best of luck to you, hope you get your good news soon 😊

LITTLEPICKLES88 Wed 24-Apr-19 17:20:00

@Samantha11K thank you, hopefully we can follow the same
Journey and both announce a BFP at some point! Yes it's so so annoying I spend so much on tests because I convince myself xx

Hello everyone, thought I'd jump on🙋🏻
Me and my partner have been trying to conceive for about a year now. I had a miscarriage in December at 8 weeks.
My period is due on Sunday. I am feeling incredibly tired, sensitive breasts and heightened sense of smell at the minute. But I'm trying not to think about it too much as it might be my body just playing tricks on me. Trying to hold on til Sunday to take a test🤞🏻

LITTLEPICKLES88 Thu 25-Apr-19 20:03:34

@chloew1924 hey welcome to this group smile keeping my fingers crossed for you! I'm still hoping on a BFP but it's not come yet I'm thinking of forcing myself to have a break until Monday of tests I'm going crazy xx

Samantha11K Thu 25-Apr-19 20:27:16

Hi @chloew1924
So sorry for your loss.
Hope you get some good news soon.

I'm determined to wait until my period is late before I do a test but don't know if I'll hold out that long. Been like a pulling cramp sort of feeling in my tummy but that could just be because I'm due on. I'm usually tired the week before too aswell so I have no idea!
Drives you nuts how you read into every little twinge doesn't it 🙄

chloew1924 Thu 25-Apr-19 21:12:53

Hello @Samantha11K and @LITTLEPICKLES88 fingers crossed for BFP for all of us then🤞🏻 Post updates
I bought some clear blue tests today and am trying my hardest to wait until Sunday or later (my cycle can be 28-32 days but has been 28 for the last few cycles). I did a cheap one the other day and got a BFN but wasn't expecting anything because of how early it was. It's so tempting to do another one

Samantha11K Thu 25-Apr-19 21:57:56

Definitely try to wait if you can. I found the clear blue digital tests don't always pick up as early as pink tests.

I learned my lesson from testing early. My MC in January was a CP. I tested on day 28 and got a faint result and again on day 30 which was a strong positive, then had bleeding so if only I'd waited I just would have assumed my period was a bit later than usual.
It is so hard waiting though!

chloew1924 Sat 27-Apr-19 16:41:03

Have any of you got a positive test yet? I just took one and it was negative, so I'm guessing I'm not pregnant this month (cycle day 27). Hopefully I'll be pregnant soon🙄

LITTLEPICKLES88 Sat 27-Apr-19 17:28:07

@chloew1924 hey I still don't have a BFP loosing hope now. Having af symptoms now too x

Louise190 Sat 27-Apr-19 21:21:26

Hey guys! I came across this thread and since pawing over the details I feel somewhat invested in everyone's story 🙈 my partner and I are trying for our first and only in my second cycle so all very new and unknown and driving me MAD!! Fingers crossed for everyone xx
