Anyone want to join me... Currently 1DPO...a long two weeks ahead of me xx
me im 1dpo aswell well I think, had first static smiley (lh surge) on sunday evening and pain sunday and Monday which I think was ovulation. we only dtd Friday and sunday though so do you think that's enough? dh doesn't want to label it as "trying" just wants to stay relaxed and "see what happens"
Hello! 👋 I think I’m 1dpo today too (although not entirely sure but I am on CD20 today and my cycles are usually 33-34 days long).
@biscuit13 my DP is exactly the same! Have to be careful what language I use when talking about it with him haha. So technically we’re ‘not trying’ - except we are!!
@MilsCookie oh my goodness our situations sound exactly the same! cant mention being "fertile" otherwise he thinks im getting obsessive. he knew I was doing the clear blue OPKs though.
Im on CD21 and cycles vary a lot, between 30-40 days long. This is literally our first month TTC first baby, ive been so broody for ages and im so excited that we are finally giving it a go! (but cant be overly excited in front of DH... just trying to play it coo) I don't want to get my hopes up too much, the odds of conceiving on the very first month are quite low but im just praying it'll happen!
is this your first?
@biscuit13 hahaha oh god we’re in the same boat then! Whenever he sees I’m on mumsnet he’s like ‘are you talking to complete strangers again?’ LOL 🙈 he doesn’t get it at all. Any time I mention ‘trying’ or that I’m fertile he’s like ‘stop putting pressure on it!’ And since it’s constantly on my mind it’s really hard not to talk about it and be 🤐 around him. So I just come on here haha 🙈
We’re almost cycle buddies then! Mine are usually 33-34 days but can also vary between 31-36. Sadly I had a missed miscarriage in November when I thought I was 12 weeks but the baby only measured 10 weeks. That was an accidental pregnancy but we had planned to ‘not try’ as of Jan 2020 anyway, so we were really happy! So this month is our first official month of TTC and yes it will be our first baby. I’m so scared it might happen again but trying to be positive. I love that you’re ‘trying to play it cool’ 😂 - totally the same as me!! Is this your first?
@MilsCookie haha! yes our partners sounds exactly the same! yeah same its all im thinking about at the moment.
sorry to hear about your MC, that must of been sad. yes lets try and stay positive, its so hard when you have so little control over what happens!
yes it will be our first, im just scared I wont be able to get pregnant or something, we've never tried before.
when will you be testing? are you going to wait until AF is due?
I'm 1dpo, so now the waiting game.
But been having cramps for 2-3 days, so either painful ovulation or...... well I don't know, but it hurts.
@MrsTumbletap hello! Yeah must of been ovulation pain, I can sometimes get it, like sharp stabbing pains on and off for a day or 2. Welcome are you trying for your first baby?
Hey! I’m starting to test on the 26th. Can I join?
@biscuit13 this would be my second.
But now I'm having a bit of a panic and feeling too old. I'm 37 and got all broody the last month or two and now I'm thinking, shit. If I get pregnant I will be in 41 with a 4 year old. Will people look at me and wonder why I'm pregnant this late. Why did I leave it so long? (DS is 7)
My head is a bit of a mess right now!
Sorry guys, started the thread and abandoned you.
Hope everyone is well... I'm trying to be calm this time and not think about testing every day... Think that's why I'm not on this as much, but it does help to talk to others xxx
@MrsTumbletap not old at all!
I'm just wishing the days away so I can find out. My mind keeps switching between thinking I've got a good chance this month and I'm healthy so I should be pregnant to thinking theres not much chance I probably wont be....
I dont really know what to expect symptom wise either. Ahh just got to wait I suppose. Will probably test on sunday 26th if I have enough will power to wait... even then that's 2 before before my period is due.
Cd21 today, still going to baby dance today and over the weekend just in case of late ovulation. How are you @ceebee21?
@ChampooPapi I'm good thanks, just pretty chilled about it all this month and hoping for the best. I am tempting and am 3dpo atm xx
@MilsCookie @MrsTumbletap @ceebee21@ChampooPapi
how are we all getting on? 7dpo now, I don't think I really feel any different to normal, boobs maybe a bit more tender than normal at this stage and today I feel super emotional like im going to cry at any moment. but I could be looking for things so have no idea.
@biscuit13 I am good thanks. Same as you 7DPO... don't feel any different, still chilled out though.. nothing I can do about anything!!
Hi guys, can I join? I’m 5DPO and don’t feel anything at all, no sore boobs, no moodiness! Normally get quite bad PMS so not sure if that means anything or nothing, so hard to tell. I’m testing on Sat before a afternoon tea hen party!! Better be safe than sorry haha. When do you all plan to test? Xx
hi @Catred4, when is your AF due? I think I might test Friday when i'll be 11dpo but that's still quite early isn't it? i'm just really excited
Hi @biscuit13! It’s due Monday or Tuesday so maybe Saturday is a bit early but I can’t help myself! This is my first month trying for number 1, fingers crossed for us all x
@Catred4 im due the same, next Tuesday... so yeah I know testing Friday is really early. I'll prob test again sunday, want my husband to be there really if its good news. (getting a bit ahead of myself)
same for me first month trying for baby number 1, its nice to have people to talk to, instead of my husband rolling his eyes over more baby talk .
im trying to stay calm because I know theres nothing else we can do this month, but its more, I want what ive pictured in my head to become a reality x
@biscuits13 ha I saw you guys talking at the top of thread, my husband is exactly the same. He’s like “what the hell I thought we were just gonna have sex without a condom, I didn’t expect you to be peeing on these sticks every day and using fertility lube!!” Hehe got to be prepared!
Hi Ladies! Is it too late for me to join the convo? I'm 5/6 DPO and first month TTC... nervous! Excited and hopeful! Have been feeling cramps/twangs since 3 DPO and today checked and still wet CM (lumpy but definitely wet). Been stalking all the forums for early signs and when I can test etc etc so thought to join the party! Might be in for a long ride 😎 hope everyone here has a successful journey if no BFP this month then hopefully it comes the next month.
PS my husband is also a bit taken back by my overanalyzing/paranoia so this could be a healthy outlet for obsessing over TTW
@biscuit13 hey lovely, I’m doing ok thank you. I have had a few symptoms but no idea if they’re just PMS or pregnancy. I’ve had cramps/twinges for about 5 days now on and off, and a weird taste in my mouth. Today I’ve had a lot of milky cm, so much that I had to go to the toilet and wipe as it felt like I’d wet myself!! 🙈🤣 how are you today?
@MilsCookie ok that's interesting, im pretty sure if had little twinges of pain/cramps on and off last few days (but I did think that last month and AF showed up) ohh me too about the CM... it had dried up for a few days and now seems like im getting more? also my boobs are definitely getting sore but im pretty sure all of these things I get before AF anyway so who knows! don't think I usually get sore boobs this early though.. normally few days before AF but im still meant to be a week away.
so lets hope we both will have a bfp within a week!
when are you going to test or are you going to wait to be late?
