First cycle, 3 DPO. I already have pregnancy tests and I know it is pointless to test and I can make my life miserable if I do... hmm so I really really want to wait. grin

Anyone else trying NOT to test before a later day? Shall we stick together and support each other? smile

Hello! Yes, good plan. I’m day 5dpp today and after using a pile of tests last month tracking what turned out to be a chemical I’m not going to torture myself this month.

We can do it!

Hi, I'm on cycle 2 and 10dpo. Seriously struggling not to test! I want to wait until 13dpo when AF is due as just don't think I can handle seeing a negative test. It's excruciating! Worst thing is I have this week off but am not really enjoying it, I'm just wishing the week away! X

chanderl Tue 28-May-19 08:11:56

I'm 5dpo today so I'm keen to join here! Have to try and wait!

I'm on cycle 1 of ttc baby #2 after a c section and I'm worried that I'll never get pregnant again. I'm already so anxious

whitelanner Tue 28-May-19 08:19:46

Ow, I am glad you joined ladies.

It is good to feel I am not alone. smile I am very excited as I had "strange symptoms" at my ovulation and I am really really curious...

But yeah I know even if we were successful it is a long way till implantation and it might not even happen.

This whole "getting pregnant" thing is not as simple as I thought it would be. It's basically a miracle if it happens. :D And you always hear about people who "accidentally" got pregnant on a drunk night. And I am like... how?? :D

whitelanner Tue 28-May-19 08:20:39

Haha... I didn't mean "other woman"... :D this website is a bit strange...

I'm 11 dpo, period due on Friday. I was adamant I was pregnant last month so wasted lots of money on tests confused

DaisyChainsForever Tue 28-May-19 10:13:18

Not going to test until the weekend, if I can wait! grin

whitelanner Tue 28-May-19 11:00:30

Do you ladies have any symptomps? I mean I know it is very early... but many women already have symptoms even before implantation...

Hi all, mind if I join?

Im on cycle #5 and seriously feel like a crazy person!!

I did a text at 7dpo (you are right it is so not worth testing early and I wont do ever again!) I got a very very very faint squinter of a line (the kind you need to invert to see) and again at 10dpo. on cheapy tests.
But a BFN on a FRER??

Because I got the faint lines, I have absolutely drove myself crazy! boy I wish I had have waited.

Today I am 12dpo. I usually get AF on day 28 or 29 and today is day 29 so I am just sat at work waiting for it to come!!

I've had sore boobs for a week and bad back for a few days.

I'm going to buy another test at lunch and see if I can hold out until the morning if AF hasn't come by then.

Next month I am def waiting until I am late before I even buy a test!

DaisyChainsForever Tue 28-May-19 11:14:53

@HayleyD84 I'm totally with you on the waiting!

HayleyD84 Tue 28-May-19 11:35:38


How many dpo are you?
When are you due on?

Mummylanie3 Tue 28-May-19 11:45:25

I'm 9 dpo due af Sunday not sure when to test

mumof1hants Tue 28-May-19 11:56:41

@whitelanner sorry if tmi but I was really constipated& had cramps a few days ago. Then I 'cleared out' yesterday morning. It could be the preconception vitamins tho as I only started taking them this month? I also had heartburn in the night 2 nights ago which I never get? With my first I had cramping for 2 days about 10 days after ovulation but nothing else!

Ladies the desire to test is so bad now!! It's taking all my willpower not to do it!... my partner keeps encouraging me to too! 🙈 x

chanderl Tue 28-May-19 12:12:48

@mumof1hants How many dpo are you?

CarysC Tue 28-May-19 12:47:33

Hey, mind if I join? I'm 5dpo today I think. I didn't bother to do any ovulation tracking this month except for a few fertility apps but my cycle is pretty regular at 28-29 days. I was really good at not doing any OPK or temping this month, so I'm going to try and be good and not test until at least 10dpo, AF due 8th June. Let's stay strong ladies and try not to POAS!

Seli3025 Tue 28-May-19 12:53:34

Hi all!
I'm new to this and not sure what some abbreviations mean please could someone tell me what dpo stands for! My brain can't figure it out!

I am feeling the same as you all and am waiting for AF this Friday!! I really hope it doesn't come! This is our first month of trying so who knows! I took a test on the weekend and got a BFN (my brain worked that one out haha) and we felt so down after that, but we are convincing ourselves that it's still too early !

Good luck to you all! I am not going to test anymore!! Silly me it's just all too exciting!


mumof1hants Tue 28-May-19 12:53:55

@chanderl I'm 10dpo today.

@CarysC trying to stay strong but it's soooo hard!!! X

mumof1hants Tue 28-May-19 12:55:02

@Seli3025 welcome! DPO is 'days past ovulation'. I'm due Friday too!! X

Seli3025 Tue 28-May-19 12:56:24

@mumof1hants amazing thank you! Haha so that means I'm 10dpo!!! Eek it's all too much haha! Literally sat at work (being very unsociable on my lunch break) reading through this thread and love this community and how supportive you all are!

mumof1hants Tue 28-May-19 13:04:46

@Seli3025 I tracked ovulation with tests this month so know I ovulated on the 18th... most people ovulate 2 weeks before their period (which is what most apps predict) but it can be different for everyone! Who'd have thought it was so technical!

It's hard when boobs knows you're trying but it's all you can think about! Personally I need to talk about it (on here) otherwise I'd go insane! There's only so much my partner can take 😂 x

Seli3025 Tue 28-May-19 13:12:03

@mumof1hants same here I've tracked on an app thank goodness for it otherwise we wouldn't have known how short the window of opportunity was !! It's right what @whitelanner you say about "drunk night" get pregnant just like that! I never knew how short the window was!! It's crazy!

I'm glad you're all here to talk to because obviously apart from partner you don't want to tell anyone !!

Good luck ladies let's keep each other updated! Sending baby dust to you all starstarstarstarstar

Solid10 Tue 28-May-19 13:28:17

Hello ladies!!! Can I join in too? I’m 1dpo & need some support whilst I drive myself mad symptom spotting & trying to not do a test!!!!

Really hope we get BFPs!!!! smile

Solid10 Tue 28-May-19 13:32:32

Sorry in addition to me joining in, have you all been doing BBT charting to confirm ovulation or just go by the opks?

Having cramps in my abdomen today and my boobs have been a bit tender since ovulation & mild heartburn at lunch...way too early for symptom I know but I know i’ll keep searching for symptoms non-the-less haha!
