Hi everyone,

Its my first time of posting on here so i hope I'm doing this right!

After our recent marriage in June, my husband and I have decided to try for our first baby.
This is our first month of trying of which we are both very excited about.

As far as I know my ovulation date was Thurs 30th ( last AF 17th August) so been at it like rabbits since the tuesday before. Now its the waiting till Af is due... boring bit. I'm very impatient the best of times and I think this is going to kill me!

Anyone have symptoms soon after ovulation? What were they?

Since yesterday I have had backache ( bottom of my spine) and a grumbly,achey, crampy, bloated kind of feeling- Hurts to push on my stomach and couldn't stand Husband laying on top last night! and tired.

Not sure if my overactive mind is reading too much into these.. ie could have just slept funny on my back and just generally tired or early AF symptoms.

Any advice would be great for us newbies to ttc.

Thanks Cheryl

Cheryl, I'm in the same position (married in May). So nice isn't it?! grin

Come and look at another thread in the Conception section called 'Anyone want to join me in symptom swapping?' or something like that! It's a very fun thread for obsessing people and full of very imaginative symptoms! Fingers crossed for you! We need a BFP on our thread! smile
