TWW testing end of sept/Oct(89 Posts)
First cycle trying, 3 days post ovulation.
How do you all cope with the TWW? My best friend rang me today to tell me she is pregnant with her second so it's almost to good to be true that it's worked for me first time 🤞🏻
I'll be testing next Sunday, want to wait the full 2 weeks incase of chemical pregnancy.
@Crazymummyto3 oh yay! Where are you upto? How are you keeping busy with the wait? X
Also testing next Sunday, ahhh I want to know now it's driving me mad. Good luck to both of u🤞 r u trying for first?
@MrsSokhi This is our first proper cycle of ttc baby number 4 so not 100% when AF will be due so basing it on OPKs and online app. I took my last pill on 5th August, got my first bleed which I'm assuming was AF on first September and positive OPK last weekend so based on that I'm guessing AF will be due on the 29th. I'm not really holding out much hope this month as two of our children then hubby had a sickness bug so we only managed to dtd once towards the end of my fertile window so I think that's helping me with the wait as I'm not really expecting it. Really going to try and stop myself from testing early though! What are you doing to help you get through it?
@Teabisckie oh how exciting. Yeah first baby.
Make sure you both post what result you get and fingers crossed for you both
@Crazymummyto3 this is our first cycle too, I came off the pill in May but my cycles were all over the place and I didn't ovulated in August so was a bit worried but I definitely did last week. I'm not holding out for a positive this early on but who knows xx
Hi, hope you don't mind me joining? I could do with the outlet and support through this tww! TTC for about a year now, had 2 MC's and so used condoms over the summer to have a break. Now back at it, average cycle length of 26 days and I think I am now 8D0.
Question is are my symptoms real or caused by anxiety of the tww?! Was up at 4/5am with a bit of insomnia, although napped y'day following a migraine the night before which made me a bit sick. Feeling a bit queasy and slightly sore boobs but questioning if that's in my head. Also, ongoing headache and super hungry!
Testing day should be Weds next week but not sure I can wait that long. What do you all think about early symptoms, too early too have them?
Thanks ever so much x
@MadisonC not at all and I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully this month is your month.
Doesn't sound like the wait gets any easier then. I know what you mean about it being in your head though, the whole way through this cycle I was convinced my cramping was imaginary. I would definitely wait the full two weeks then you have a definite answer and no risk of finding a chemical pregnancy.
If you can relax and try to enjoy it but I know that's easier said than done xxx
@Crazymummyto3 I read the other day that some doctors reckon your at your most fertile the first cycle after the pill so fingers crossed for you xx
@MadisonC how you getting on? Any more symptoms?
I'm not if I'm imagining my symptoms as only 6dpo but I'm feeling sick during the day and getting slight cramps today and just feel deferent. I don't wanna get my hopes up incase it's not.
I've got slightly sore boobs which I don't usually get before my period so fingers crossed.
@Crazymummyto3 @Teabisckie almost there for us ladies xx
Hiya @MrsSokhi , nothing really, a slight bit of indigestion and some cramping but that could be pms. I felt so energetic yesterday morning and actually went for a little jog (which is rare!), by 6pm I was asleep on the sofa. I do get tired fairly easily but this felt different.
Only time will tell now! I'm just trying to be calm and wait it out. Also telling myself nothing is lost if it isn't our month. It's interesting you're having some early symptoms though as that's almost the same time as I really felt it, if we are preggers maybe those are implantation symptoms? There's got to be so much going on inside our bodies at that time. x
@MadisonC best way to be I think although easier said than done
Yeah I hope so it's pregnancy symptoms as I don't usually feel like this in the lead up to AF, but like you say only time will tell xx
Hi all, how's your Sunday going? Just wondering how everyone is coping with the tww now? I'm stuck between trying to relax and ignore what feel like real symptoms.
I've remembered how I tested early in previously pregnancies and got a lot of false negatives until at least a day after missed period so reminding myself how pointless looking for that little hint of a line on an early test is ... at least trying lol x
Can I join? Clue says I'm due 1 October but I got a positive opk on Friday which means I'm more likely due around the 5th. My boobs have already grown and gotten sore but I'm guessing that's normal after ovulation?
Hey I'll be testing Sunday too!
I came off Cerelle in April and have had a torrid time with a bleed then nothing and then a period last month.
So I guess, although the chance to get pregnant has been there, this is our first cycle of trying.
I hate this TWW, thankfully during the week my job keeps me really busy so I don't have time to overthink symptoms (which o have done before)
🤞🏻 for everyone.
@MadisonC I'm trying to keep today with it being my day off and husband at work. Getting pains today on one side but not like cramps where you would say your bikini line is. Not sure what that is but not over thinking it.
Not long to wait for you 🤞🏻
@MrsLEB of course
my symptoms after ov were really bad constipation sorry if that's tmi, sore boobs and feeling sick. All have gone now apart from feeling sick sometimes.
@ItAllStartedHere this is my first cycle trying also xx
Hey everyone, hope u are all keeping well. Only a week to go now! I don't really have any symptoms the odd twinge on right side but think that's just my imagination and sore boobs but always have that before period. @MadisonC I'm glad I read Ur post about not early testing because I'm already feeling tempted.
@MrsSokhi how are you holding up? Sounds promising! Are u testing or waiting to see if af arrives? Fingers crossed.
Sorry ignore me, just reresd the chat and everyone is texting next Sunday lol, only 7 days to go :D
@Teabisckie hey no baby for me this time AF arrived last night, either I ovulated late and luteal phase was really short or I didn't ovulate at all. Either way it's a good thing since coming off the pill my cycles have been all over last cycle lasted 49 days 😩 this one 34 👍🏻
Looking forward to seeing if you all have positives this week 🤞🏻 xxx
Oh @MrsSokhi that's a shame. Like you my journey has been affected by the pill. My cycles have been non existent so if I'm not pregnant I'll just be glad to have more information to try and make the most of knowing a more accurate time of ovulation.
Good luck next cycle!!
Awww @MrsSokhi I'm sorry, but definitely a positive sign if cycle length becoming shorter and more regular! Wishing u best of luck this cycle x
@Teabisckie @ItAllStartedHere thanks but honestly I was absolutely fine about it. When I started with pms symptoms I kinda knew and it's only been 1 attempt.
Looking forward to seeing your updates on Sunday 🤞🏻 xx
@MrsSokhi sorry to hear it's not your month, although it seems like your level headed about it all and I agree with you and others, any chance to get to know your natural cycle better is a massive help. Sending best wishes to you.
As for me I'm still in the waiting game, I'm pretty sure it's a no this month and so if AF comes I'll kind of be relieved pms symptoms will end for a little while, it's due between Thurs & Sat as my cycle ranges from 26 - 28 days generally ... ah, I don't know about anyone else but I will never get used to this waiting game xx
Hi ladies can I join?
This tww is torture, its our 3rd month ttc baby #1... I'm 35, husband is 27.
I'm on 7dpo, AF due in 8 days. Stupidly got some tests in the drawer that seem to chant my name to be used but I know it's just silly.
Sending lots of luck to everyone
@MadisonC all good don't worry, and yeah I completely agree about getting to know your cycles. I'm not sure I want to go back on the pill to be honest I feel so much better and I swear my body shape has changed slightly.
I've never really had pms until now and oh my god, I'm so moody 😂
I was thinking the same thing about the waiting around, dreading the next one.
@Lilsttc good luck I hope it's your month xx
