I'm 2DPO today so right at the beginning of the 2WW.

Anyone else?

I’m 6DPO... it’s been such a long wait already

30somethingandtired Wed 02-Oct-19 20:30:21

It feels like forever doesn't it @LRC44 .

Trying not to get my hopes up, but just can't help myself. Fingers crossed 🤞

Hi! I think I'm around 6DPO today but haven't had the usual symptoms of ovulation 🤷🏼‍♀️ so cant be sure.. I have had cramps Sunday and Monday so im thinking maybe implantation cramping? If so how long after implantation can you test? Driving myself crazy 😂 x

30somethingandtired Wed 02-Oct-19 21:34:44

I'm not sure @obkb , I'm going to try and waiting until the day after my period is due, but I know it will be hard to resist the temptation to test.

LRC44 Wed 02-Oct-19 21:42:34

@30somethingandtired It’s so hard not to get your hopes up!

@obkb I think implantation is around 6 days after ovulation, could test early but always the risk of getting negative tests if HGC levels aren’t high enough to detect - just test every day and hopefully get a positive result!

@30somethingandtired @LRC44 I'm trying my best to not test but it's so hard! Why do we find it so difficult to resist?! Sunday and Monday I had moderate cramping and everyday since then I've had mild cramping on my pelvic area like right across. Not all the time but they're the only symptoms I'm having so not feeling very hopeful! How's everybody else feeling? X

Hi all can I join pls... 6dpo. Have already had every symptom in the world but then tonight feel like they've all gone. It's going to be a long weeek...

30somethingandtired Fri 04-Oct-19 07:20:26

Welcome @Flossylou

I've had headaches and back ache for the last couple of days but I think that is more to do with work than anything else. 4DPO for me now so still a long way to go.

Feeling really tired as well, would love to stay in bed today but that's not an option 😞.

Hope you're all ok, keeping fingers crossed for us all 🤞

Flossylou Fri 04-Oct-19 08:04:16

@30somethingandtired I had really bad cramps and tired at 4 & 5 dpo. I've got sore boobs but I think I usually do the second half of my cycle.. I've had a whole array of other fleeting symptoms.

I sometimes think when you want something so much your body tricks you into having symptoms so I'm trying not to get my hopes up.

Really resisting the urge to test as I'm now 7dpo as it's not impossible but unlikely.

Hope this is a lucky thread for us all

Yay I am so glad I found this thread, I was just thinking about making a new one grin Hope it's ok if I join.
I am 2DPO Today and have been doing SMEP. I am just waiting for my third high temperature Tomorrow to confirm O.
af/bfp due on 17th. Fingers and toes crossed for the latter

HappyMouse Fri 04-Oct-19 15:54:18

Hi everyone. I'm 6DPO. I'm so pleased I found this thread! The wait feels like such a long time! I'll keep looking to see how you're all getting on. Xx

30somethingandtired Fri 04-Oct-19 17:51:45

Hello @SMiles14 and @HappyMouse

I think so too @Flossylou bodies just play tricks when you're really hopeful. Too early to be over anything really, so I'm guessing anything at this stage is just wishful thinking.

This is my first month tracking BBT. I got the raised temperature for ovulation. What should I expect over the 2WW, does it drop again or stay high until AF?

I'm half thinking that my BBT going up just coincided with me turning the central heating on, but I managed to get a positive OPK too so should be ok.

SMiles14 Fri 04-Oct-19 18:55:37

@30somethingandtired it drops before af comes... attempting to post a pic of a month when mine did an obvious drop. It's quite a useful/ depressing sign that af is coming

Flossylou Fri 04-Oct-19 19:14:54

@SMiles14 @HappyMouse welcome hopefully this is our month!

@30somethingandtired haha yes it's officially heating season! I have no idea about bbt I tried to do it but forgot to do it before I got out of bed everyday so gave it off as a bad job!

obkb Fri 04-Oct-19 19:21:49

Ohhhhh I've poas! why why why 😂 I think negative but hubby thinks he sees something?? I'm about 7-8dpo I don't really know! See what you guys think? It's his fault he's bought me 3 whilst I was at work 🤦🏼‍♀️ x

30somethingandtired Fri 04-Oct-19 19:31:50

Awww how lovely that he is so excited @obkb !

I can't see anything yet but I'm rubbish at finding faint lines. Plenty of time yet so don't be disappointed.

I've picked up a few cheap-y tests today but I'm leaving them in the car to try and put me off using them just yet!

Keeping everything crossed for you, hope you get a really clear BFP soon.

Flossylou Fri 04-Oct-19 19:45:43

@obkb I can actually see a shadow!! Fingers crossed it will develop.

I've got a cupboard full of ice and some frer but I'm trying to wait a while... it's hard trying to hold off.

WutheringShites86 Fri 04-Oct-19 19:53:12

Evening Ladies, I'm on the same schedule as you guys. Think I ovulated Sunday/Monday, DP and I had the weekend and rest of the week off work so plenty of opportunity thankfully! Trying to resist symptom spotting but keep thinking I've got signs of implantation today.

Does anyone know if implantation usually happens on the same side as ovulation? Or is that completely daft and unscientific of me? confused

@obkb that looks like a very faint squinty positive to me!

Flossylou Fri 04-Oct-19 20:03:30

Hiya @WutheringShites86 could well be implantation, was it like cramping? I had bad cramping 4/5dpo so hoping it was implantation too!

obkb Fri 04-Oct-19 20:22:25

@30somethingandtired thank you, I wish I'd have seen that idea of leaving them in the car beforehand 😂

@Flossylou oh really?! I feel like I want to test in the morning now but I should really wait! I'm not even due on until next Thursday. So hard to resist 😂

@WutheringShites86 if what I had on mon/tues was implantation then I had it all across my pelvic area! Ahhhh I wish Thursday would hurry up 😂

Flossylou Fri 04-Oct-19 20:24:27

@obkb yes definitely see a shadow and it's always less visible on camera. Have you got a frer?

Lew2016 Fri 04-Oct-19 20:25:27

Hey girls, new to the board! But in the TWW. 4/5DPO and it's the longest 5 days ever!! What signs have you guys had?! I have constant back ache today not sure if that's a bad sign and AF likely to appear soon? My LP isn't always the best!
Also had creamy CM!? Sorry tmi

Lew2016 Fri 04-Oct-19 20:27:13

Totally see a faint line @obkb ♥️

30somethingandtired Fri 04-Oct-19 20:50:23

Thanks @SMiles14 I got totally distracted by @obkb 's test and didn't see your answer to my BBT question.

This is my temp chart so far. The only day I haven't remembered to temp this month was ovulation day itself (typical! 🙈).

Hello and welcome to everyone new. We're becoming a nice group. Hopefully we get lots of BFPs between us.

Today, I have wanted to eat EVERYTHING. I'm not sure that's a sign though, think I'm just having a fat day.
