So, the subject says it all! Although I feel I may have more a chance this month.
I came off the pill December - last month we was out. But this month, I apparently ovulated yesterday 12/01/20. We did the deed twice 2 days before ovulation... so today Iam 1dpo.

Anyone in the same that wants to join?
I really want to try not symptom spot, but yesterday I felt the cramps - which led me to think it was ovulation.

1dpo for me too!!

We DTD a lot this month haha! Its our first cycle trying to conceive after our MMC at 11 weeks in November. Feeling optimistic :D

Is this your first?

Hey Anny27

I actually thought no-one would reply so this has made my day haha! This would be my 2nd baby, my first is almost 3! We’ve only done it twice 2 days before OV, but I have read the majority of pregnancies occur 2 days before.
I hate this part lol!

Sorry to hear about your MMC sad x

Its nice to speak to someone at the same stage as you when you are in the tww :D

Ah lovely! Must be harder to fit in DTD when you have a 3 year old haha. But yes just before ovulation is best so fingers crossed you managed to catch!

This is our first baby smile took us 3 months to conceive our first pregnancy so hopefully it isnt too long again this time!

Kates21 Mon 13-Jan-20 11:22:02

Yes it is!
When is your period due? Yeah it’s difficult to fit it in, usually when it’s child free moments which are very rare!

Ohhh I hope it doesn’t take you too long to conceive. If only we could see inside our bodies hey!

Me 🙋🏼‍♀️ I’m in the TWW 5dpo, only managed to DTD twice on predicted ovulation day, only went by my app this month didn’t do OPKs, trying to be more relaxed this month. Not started symptom spotting (yet)

Kates21 Mon 13-Jan-20 11:33:13

Hey sh84

I’ve never used opks, I’ve always just gone by my app - which I know can be slightly off sometimes but I’m pretty sure this month was right & last month my period came when the app predicted!
I remember my first pregnancy, I had no idea - wasn’t obsessing over symptoms, I did a test and was adamant it was negative & it was positive!
So this month I’m going with that approach too haha!

@Kates21 my app has been spot on too, did OPKs in nov & had positive ov test on predicted ovulation day & it was negative either side. We’ve never really “tried” for a baby before just took the see what happens approach. This would be baby no 5 (yes I’m greedy) I had my 4th in aug last year but he died shortly after birth, I fell pregnant in October but it turned out to be a chemical pregnancy. Getting pretty desperate now, OH works away a lot so it’s really hard to get the timing right, really hoping this is my month

Kates21 Mon 13-Jan-20 11:45:49


Last month I thought I had a chance and spent a fortune buying tests just to be negative.. although I kinda knew they would be negative - strange lol! Yeah I’ve never really tried it just happened last time with my first... but this time I have a really strong broodyness and I just want a baby now!
I’m so sorry to hear of your baby loss, that’s tragic and a horrible thing for anyone to go through! Wish you all the luck in the world!

Thank you @Kates21. It can become a bit all consuming when you just want a baby right now, broodyness is an understatement it’s a complete longing. Keeping everything crossed for everyone

Kates21 Mon 13-Jan-20 12:08:43

@sh84 @Anny27

Keep in touch tho through this thread! I wanna know everyone’s results 🤞🏼

Will do. Holding out till af due on the 22nd before I test. Af has turned up when due in nov & dec so no hanging around wondering

Kates21 Mon 13-Jan-20 13:15:04

Mines due 26th! Only time will tell! X

Anny27 Mon 13-Jan-20 13:44:39

Yep mines due on the 26th as well smile @kates21 - when will you test?

I used OPKs this month so know exactly when I ovulated (although i usually k ow anyway by my CM)

@sh84 so sorry to hear that you lost your baby 💗 you definitley deserve a bfp soon!

Kates21 Mon 13-Jan-20 13:52:27


I’m not sure when to test... I’m going to try and wait it out until af. BUT maybe start testing dependant on symptoms earlier on! I know I OV yesterday because I had the cramps & today I’ve had no cramps.
TMI: My cm today is wet but white, and cervix position is so high I cannot feel it!

Thank you @Anny27. I usually get ov pain so have a rough idea. Cba with OPKs this month or last month. I’ve never checked cervix position & my cm doesn’t really change that much, I have “dry” days but it’s never been egg white, during fertile week it’s usually really thin watery cloudy/white & it stays like that for a couple of days after ovulation. Just talking about cm with random strangers, only acceptable on a ttc forum 😂

Kates21 Mon 13-Jan-20 14:48:45

I’ve never used opks either!

I never really watched cm until I started looking into my symptoms - the body plays tricks and everyone’s different, so no answer is the right answer! Hahaha it’s so acceptable here - if I don’t talk about it I’ll google it until the cows come home! 😂

This month I’m also noting down my DPO symptoms! So that’ll be interesting!

Even now... I’ve just started feeling a burning sensation in my lower back & I feel like I’ve been punched in the lower tummy!

Hi ladies, can I join in too?
It's my 2nd cycle TTC #2. My AF is due on 21st, but whenever I think it's been 'normal' for a few months it usually messes around. I've been using OPKs, but not sure if we got the peak this month. Ive been spotting ever since I (possibly) ovulated as well. I'm already counting myself out for this month, but we'll see.

@sh84, so sorry to hear about your loss. Got fingers crossed for you this month

Spark27 Mon 13-Jan-20 15:54:50

Meant to say I'm (possibly) 6 DPO

AutumnCat Mon 13-Jan-20 15:58:47

Hey everyone, can I join too? 1st cycle ttc #1 and definitely symptom spotting EVERYTHING. It's so anxious-making! I'm going to refuse to test until when my period is due, my cycles can be very variable so I'm going by what the clue app tells me and hoping its ballpark right...

Kates21 Mon 13-Jan-20 16:00:05

Hey @Spark27

Thanks for joining, more the merrier!!
Have you got an app you follow or just opks?
Oooh spotting sounds promising!

This is all so frustrating isn’t it! I’m trying to remember last month but silly me didn’t write down any signs, so I can’t compare.
Right now I generally feel I’m going to start af, not sure if it’s the backlash of ovulation because I know it’s way too soon for pregnancy symptoms!

Hey @AutumnCat

Welcome! Thanks for joining!

How many DPO are you?

OP’s posts: |
sh84 Mon 13-Jan-20 16:16:00

I use the clue app too. I started noting things I noticed each dpo last month. I’ve had left side pinching for about half hour today, had it last month but later in cycle. Really trying to ignore everything this month & just note down if I notice anything. I put a question up yesterday about sex in the TWW, what people’s thoughts are about it

Wackadoodle84 Mon 13-Jan-20 16:26:19

Can I join you ladies, 1-2 dpo today depending what app I go by.

Had positive opks on cd 13, 14 and 15.
This will be our 3rd month ttc.
I booked us a ‘romanatic weekend break’ last weekend so timing should be bang on for this month.
We’ve had previous issues with ttc and our last pregnancy (over 10 years ago) was a clomid pregnancy. I was at the gp on cd 3 and had bloods done which were all normal. Need to go back on day 21 for more bloods
