Anyone around 5dpo and want to wait with me?(185 Posts)
The dreaded TWW which actually feels like it takes 2 years 😫
It's too early to symptom spot I know but I did feel a bit crampy after ovulation, a few shooting pains in boobs and a horrible two day headache over the weekend.
Also a weird feeling almost like I have the start of cystitis but I don't. Had that yesterday and it's gone now.
Anyone else around the same dpo? Let me know how you're feeling!
Hi I'm about 10ish dpo I'm feeling crap, headaches,sore heavy boobs,heavy feeling in stomach which is bloated too and feel af could start any time which isn't due yet,so kind of know how you feel x
Bless you it's such a crappy time. Do you feel positive this month?
I never get any pms symptoms, period just arrives but I do get mild IBS so any cramps/bloating or twinges could be that flaring up
Hey I'm 4dpo today, af due 16th. No symptoms whatsoever yet but I know it's very early. We didnt dtd much this month so I'm not feeling very hopeful for this month xx
I do then I don't and then my minds all over place then if you know what I mean? I'm getting fed up of symptom watching tbh
I'm 2/3dpo (working on 2 just to increase the chance of a non squinted if I've caught this month) I'm going CRAZY! I really feel this is our month but it will hurt more if it's not 😢
I am 5DPO Today and I have been driving myself crazy! I swear I had cramps over the weekend and also thought I was getting cystitis yesterday!
I'm hopeful, we did SMEP and used CB digitals so managed to cover the entire fertile period.
Good luck! Are you going to test early or wait for AF? Is this your first?
@flm1988 me too, it's all consuming but instead of trawl the internet like I did last month looking for potential signs I thought I'd try and speak to women in the same situation.
It's so unhealthy. I swear you could google 'farts smell of roses' as a pregnancy symptom and you'd find someone saying it was one for them!
@charlie0692 hello! We didn't dtd that much either but hoping when we did it was the right days.
@GloriaMaximus me too! Trying to distract myself by every time I have a spare minute I'm analysing my cycle- like anything is going to change!
See, right there you saying similar symptoms makes me perk up!
Second cycle for me but last month was more 'we were on holiday so more sex than usual and didn't use anything' it was just before my fertile window so was hoping the sperm was alive for 5 days. Wishful thinking.
This month I've done opk. I bought a thermometer to temp but the bloody thing doesn't light up so scrabbling around in the dark to find light to actually see it made me flustered and definitely wouldn't have shown the correct BBT.
Not my first, I have a nearly 13 year old and a 3 year old. How about you?
1/2 DPO ! Will be 3 years TTC #1 next year 😔 1 failed round of IVF (1 mc and 1 bfn)
Every month is tedious and repetitive and a real blow when AF comes. So thought I'd jump in a group for this 2ww! Never done it before.
Hopefully will get to see some BFP's if not my own. Good luck everyone 😊 xx
@flm1988 I'm the same, its so exhausting! I always start off the cycle with good intentions to just keep busy and not symptom spot in the 2ww then when it comes around I turn into a woman posessed! Its so stupid but I can't stop!
@pollysproggle Ha I know, its terrible! and you can find at least one person who had the same symptoms as you at the same DPO and ended up pregnant which just makes it worse. I do wonder whether I should just stay off the forums but I have no idea if that would make it better? Its the lack of control I hate, I was the same in the 2 weeks before O! Just itching to get to the part where I can actually do something productive.
Does your thermometer have a recall function? I do mine the minute I wake up but look at the temperature later on when I am actually awake. It doesn't have a light either so this is the only way but works for me and means I can go back to sleep after taking it.
I am trying for #1, I got pregnant in April but sadly that ended in a MMC which was discovered at 12 weeks. I was so desperate to start trying again afterwards but I got ill and had shingles in August so this is the first month I feel fully healthy and ready again. I would have been due in January so I think as long as I am pg again by then I will be ok, although every event that passes it gets harder as I thought I would be 6 months now. Sorry to be a Debbie Downer, I just SOOOO want this to work!
Sorry for your loss and sorry you're having a shit time with conceiving, I won't offer any advice as I have none and you've probably heard it all before anyway but I will say feel free to have a good moan to me if you need one.
I will have everything crossed for you! This could be your month xx
You poor thing, finding out at the scan must have been awful
It's good you're feeling healthy and ready to try again. Fingers crossed it happens quickly.
My stupid thermometer does have recall but you have to set the age range on it every time you use it so it's useless for tracking.
If I'm not successful this month I'll get a proper one I think as even the opk's gave me strange results.
I didn't get a true positive this month but it was almost positive on cycle day 12 at 8pm. I drink a lot and wee a lot, can never hold for 3 hours so my sample was either too diluted or I missed my surge or, I didn't ovulate.
7 dpo for me, third cycle of TTC no 2!
Hopeful as used CB digital, but didn't ovulate til day 21. Been a bit all over the place since had implant out a few months ago. Took 7 months last time but I am impatient!!
Hey gang . Do you mind if I join. I'm somewhere between about 2- 10 dpo , and that's if I even ovulated ! I suffer from pcos and this is my third round of clomid . Got bfp on my first but ended in mc. Ever since the mc my cycles have been very erratic and not following the norm. Went for ultrasound on cd10 ( last cycle of clomid we taught I ov'd very early so doc suggested getting scanned earlier) had good follicles in both but they were still a few days away and looked like I should have been good to go around cd 14. He'd from cd 13to about cd 17 and again cd 18 and cd 20 . Had loads of cm around cd 13 for about 4 days not really strong opk but that's nothing new for me. Had a big bbt drop cd 17 and a rise for two days then its stay around normal so convinced I did ov . Then cd 18 got another kind of stong opk and since sat I have had a dull pinchy pully sensation on and off in left side of overy uterus ,boobs have started to get sore today. Very bad insomnia last night and nauseous today but that more then likely due to the tiredness. Holding out hope that I popped an egg at some stage, just really dont know when!
@pollysproggle Thanks lovely, I hope so too
That thermometer sounds frustrating! Yes if you are not preggers this cycle I would treat yourself to a new one
I was the same with cheap OPKs, I never got a true positive and like you I drink a lot so I have no idea if that made a difference. The one month I got close to a positive it was at 10am and I only tested at that time because it was a weekend, I couldn't do that at work! This month I changed to CB digitals and they are sooo much easier, they show the full fertile week too so you can cover as much of it as possible. Also you just POAS in the morning then can forget about it all day. Pricey but I think worth it if you are having difficulty.
@dublino That sounds super frustrating, I hope you 'popped an egg' too! it sounds positive and fingers crossed your temp stays up!
@sMiles thanks. In my view my temp is not as high as it should be so I'm desperately trying not to symptom spot in case I never ov'd . In impossible though!! Evey little twinge or pain and I'm on to dr Google . I should cut myself away for the internet for these two weeks. My google search history is rediculas. Had a nightmare the other day and was googling that
@charlie0692 I'm similar to you - AF due 17th and didn't DTD much this month. Fingers crossed though, you never know!
Feeling very negative this month. Only on cycle 4 but it's still feeling like a very long time!
@fancytea I'm exact same as you. On cycle 4 now and not feeling very positive about this cycle at all. But it will happen when the time is right so trying not to get too disheartened. When will you test? I'm hoping to wait until sunday/monday to test x
Can I join too? 9dpo today on 7th cycle. I've got a cold which actually seems to be a blessing as I can't symptom spot without blaming it on that! Did a test this morning which was negative.
I am so fed up of the TWW.
@dublino the absolute worst! I was on conception boards with people who have now had their babies, so starting to get a little impatient.
It's even worse when your cycles aren't standard. Mine are all over the place at the moment. I'm either 6dpo or 12dpo 🤷🏼♀️ who the hell knows.
@Mimi91 thank god I'm not alone in the confusion of dpo!! Cycle so erratic this time round it could be anything. I'm gonna test next monday and every few days until af shows her ugly face .
@NamelessNinja welcome! If your 9 dpo thatsbstill quite early . When is af due ?? Maybe hold off til then
@charlie0692 I'm hoping to hold out until the 17th, but who knows if I'll make it! You're right it will. Trying to keep my chin up!
