TWW - testing 4th September(617 Posts)
Anyone else in the TWW and want to keep each other sane?
Hi @Blossomingflower94, I'm due on the 5th or 6th of September so almost the same time as you! I won't test unless AF doesn't show up though, as I don't rate my chances this month.
Can i join, im 4dpo af due 2nd September. Do you plan on waiting for af or testing early?
Oh wait im 5dpo. Don't even know where i am haha
Hello @itssquidstella & @mrsc1987 Heres hoping these two weeks don't drag too much!!
When are you planning on testing MrsC?
I'm going to test on the 1st or 2nd as its DP's birthday on the 4th and I'm really hoping for good news!
I think im going to test 12dpo with a frer as im at a wedding that day and would like an idea if i can have a drink or not
Hey dolls 🙋🏾♀️
Hope its okay to join in...
Im due AF on 2nd sept and this is dragging on🙈
This is my first cycle trying to conceive and first time too.
In June I had a MMC, went to 12 wk scan and no heart beat, baby stopped growing at 7 weeks (was unplanned and had just came off the pill that month after 10 years been on it)
Hows everyones symptoms and when is everyone testing?? Xx
I’m due around 29th August so plan to test then if AF hasn’t arrived. This last week is going to be soo hard! I’ve had really sore boobs since ovulation which I never usually get. I think I’m just thinking about it all too much though. Would love for a BFP this month, then it would be due around my birthday!
@Banoffeepie91 I feel ya 💁🏽♀️ My nipples are sensitive, quite stingy actually and my boobs feel slightly sore.. mostly a heavy feeling.
I dont have any other symptoms, my CM is appearing milky white if thats a symptom 🥴
@TTC1993 it’s my first proper cycle since I had my coil out in June that I’ve actually been able to detect ovulation so I think I might be getting my hopes up a bit. My partner is so relaxed about it all. He was like if AF doesn’t arrive wait a few more weeks and then test?! Haha. No way I will be waiting that long. Hopefully this time next week I will know either way.
What are they like my OH is so chilled too, he's like 'babe It's cool what do you want for tea' 😂 I'm like Fuc** tea I am too busy googling my symptoms hun💁🏽♀️
🤞🏽🤞🏽 for you x
@TTC1993 haha! Glad it’s not just me. So nice to be able to talk about it, not told anyone we’re trying as we don’t want any pressure.
🤞 to you to. Looking forward to hearing how everyone gets on.
Hey I'm also 4DPO and also due AF on 4th Sep. Time flies so I'm trying to distract myself and just hoping I've caught! I think I'll test as of the 1st Sep with the FRED test but might see how long I can hold off xx
@TTC1993 That made me laugh so much "fuck tea" 😂
I'm 4DPO today and 0 symptoms. Know it's super early and even if I am pregnant implantation wouldn't have even happened yet but meh. Want to know either way!
@AliSxo I also have FRER waiting there to test on the 1st, AF due on 2nd.. I'm 7 DPO now. Have sore boobs and stingy nipples and thats about it. How about you? X
@Blossomingflower94 😂😂 he just looks at me like im a full blown psycho 🤦🏽♀️
how are you feeling about things? Xx
@ttc1993 I'm not sure. This is our first cycle of TTC so it's all so new. Like I said I have 0 symptoms but I'm only 4DPO and implantation won't have happened yet. Part of me is hopeful, the other part is dreading having to do this TWW multiple times 🙈
How many DPO are you and how are you feeling now?
@TTC1993 I think if you've got sore boobs that's a good sign!! If I get that I'll be positive as I never get that normally when waiting for AF, I'm not 5DPO and I had cramps and lower back ache so maybe that's a good sign! I'm really nervous to test as I don't want to be disappointed xxx
@AliSxo I so hope so but probs unlikely as its my first cycle TTC, i do have sore boobs and stingy nips and my CM is creamy white (SOZ!)
i done a test this morning, but it was negative as expected too soon to test but I ordered them and thought I'll just do one on the off chance 🙈
Will test when AF is due on the 2nd..
When is it AF Is due for you again? Xx
@TTC1993 I'm due AF on the Wednesday 4th!! I think the earliest I could test would be the Sunday just before but i might find myself really tempted to do one sooner!!
I've had barley any CM which isn't unusual, I did around ovulation. Only symptom I've had which could be implantation would be cramps and also being more tired.
It's my first cycle trying too! I came off the pill the first weekend in August and had a withdrawal bleed as normal. I'm so hoping I've caught this month but if not it'll be ok 💗 xxxx
@AliSxo I have had cramping also forgot to mention that, but just a couple of times throughout the day for the last 4 days ??
I came off the pill in feb after being on it for 10 years to give myself a break, wasn't TTC and fell pregnant straight away didn't even have time for my first cycle.. went for 12 week scan and had a MMC has to have the operation was not very pleasant. So we waited two cycles and now TTC for the first time so its all new to me i just have to google everything..
How have you been doing things apart from the obvious 😂👏🏽 i'm using flo app to work out my fertile window xxx
Hi everyone! I think I am 3 DPO, no real symptoms as of yet apart from feeling exhausted on Friday evening and Saturday morning, but I think that's just the progesterone surge that kicks in with the start of the luteal phase more so than anything. AF is due on 6 September so we shall see.
How is everyone feeling? I'm quite positive about our chances but it's early days for us so won't be devastated if it's not our month.
6dpo and my 'symptoms' are a few cramps which tbh i cant say are symptoms i get this in most of my 2ww, nips are a bit sensitive to the touch though which I've only had once back in the first month ttc so may or may not be anything. We are ttc #1 in cycle 6 now im quite over weight so my plan is to focus on making this less of an issue now #dietstartstomorrow
Hey all ... looking very positive for a lot of you Fingers crossed these symptoms keep coming.
I'm only 4DPO and have begun to experience intermittent cramps/stabbing/pulling pain in my lower right abdomen, trying not to read into it too much but this was the side I ovulated from this month!
@mrsc1987 Sounds like you're on track to improve health for both you and baby ☺️
@Blossomingflower94 You must be very in tune with your body if you knew which side you ovulated from! I can't even pinpoint the day 😆 Felt very light cramping on Monday and loads of cramping on Thursday so those are the two main suspects.
I'm finding so hard to not symptom spot with every little twinge, even though it's realistically far too early. Feeling extremely bloated today and obviously looking for it to have a hidden meaning, when the most likely explanation is bank holiday overeating 😂
