3DPO and feeling poorly 😔 TWW buddies?(784 Posts)
3DPO and feeling generally shit. Tiny little stabbing pains in my pubic area and my lower back is killing. Feeling sick and generally full. Have a feeling I'm just getting a bug but can't help wondering if it's something else. I know 3DPO is far too early for any kind of symptoms but its always in the back of my mind 🤷🏼♀️
Anyone else's AF due around 21st feb?
Hey there @Twitchett22 !
I’m a little behind with AF due the 25th -ish but I’d love some TWW company! This is my first month monitoring BBT, I wanted to know just how accurate the ovulation calendar predictions were hehe and also just see what’s going on ( implantation dip, ovulation dip etc)
I know what you mean with symptom spotting, it drives me up the wall, hang in there though!
What cycle are you on now?
@gingerglitter4ever on cycle 3 now but tbh we haven't really DTD that much each time due to working shifts, having a toddler etc. Was hoping to try a bit harder this month but DP has been unwell and now me so it's just not happened much. We DTD the day before ovulation which I'm hoping will be enough but my cycles are a bit irregular so could have ovulation day wrong aswell 🤷🏼♀️ CM was very thick that day though so I think that's a good sign? I'm rubbish with all of this 😂
Haha I know what you mean, I’m also on cycle 3 but this is the first month I consider trying for real. I took a step up tracking BBT and have been taking the “sex every other day between CD7 and CD20” very seriously, my fingers and toes are all crossed haha
It’s all been a rollercoaster though since I’ve had a Mirena since I was 21 (now 28) and we are TTC our first. So I feel like I’m really relearning my body and what’s “normal”
I guess it’s all a journey and we just gotta roll with it? A real nail biter though 😂
@gingerglitter4ever I know, I got pregnant with my first straight away so didn't track cycles or ovulation or anything. So I don't have a clue what I'm on about or if I'm looking too far into things. I wasn't that bothered about having another just yet but since getting what I thought were symptoms last month and turned out not, it's made me really really want it now. Fingers crossed for us both!
Hi everyone! Hope it's ok to join you, I'm due around 22nd Feb and already going crazy symptom spotting! 😂 Even though I have a cold atm so that probably accounts for everything! It going to be a looong few weeks!
@Nora11 hi! 😂 I've been constipated the last couple of days and now frantically googling to see if it means i could be pregnant 😂 I'm only 3DPO i don't think even my body knows if its pregnant or not yet 😂 I'm so impatient!
Hey I'm 4dpo so I'll join if that's ok? Same I have little mini cramps so not sure what to make of that, sick of symptom spotting every month xx
@Twitxhett22 oh god yes I can't count the times I've googled "[symptom] early pregnancy" over the past few days 😂 I really need something to take my mind off it for a while!
Welcome to the club @Nora11 and @AliSxo !!
I’m with you guys, hopefully this month I can keep my cool a bit and just get the dang BFP already hahah
Hi all, hope you don't mind if I join! I think I'm 1DPO today so no symptoms yet and DH is now away for a few nights. Trying not to get carried away but it's nice to have some company during the TWW
Im 2DPO currently on my first cycle of Chlomid. Been TTC#2 for over 2 years. My 1st child was with a previous partner!! Hoping my chances are even better this time!!! But no holding out any hope x
Hi all, think I'm about 7 dpo so in the much the same boat as you all! Have had a few cramps and a few sharp little pains low down and boobs a bit sore. The fact that some symptoms and normal before a period is just cruel really!!
I also felt yesterday morning a bit fluey and as if I was coming down with something but feeling fine again today
@Fifol i was feeling a bit fluey yesterday too! It's so hard isn't it. Its exhausting tbh and I'm not sure if me feeling crappy is just down to anxiety 😒
Welcome @Loladisco @feelingpositive2020 @Fifol baby dust all round! Looking forward to some BFP’s in this group! The TWW ain’t got nothin on us 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻
Not sure who's the same but I tend to only have a 12 day luteal phase, 6dpo for me is a halfway marker and I don't beat myself up for testing from 7DPO xx
Hey everyone 🙌🏼 I'm 6dpo today so I think we're all super close this cycle?
I have a 28 day cycle as standard so can test from Saturday onwards.
This will be our 5th cycle trying for our first and I've been taking a load of supplements this month so fingers crossed.
How's everyone feeling so far? I'm trying not to symptom stop as it ends up disappointing me but it's hard not to!
Hi @HalfPenny28 welcome to what will hopefully turn out to be a BFP group! Seeing as I know literally nothing about cycles and testing and I'm just winging it can one of you help me out? When can I test? Ovulation was Friday 7th (i think) and AF due Fri 21st. My cycles since coming off the pill have been 35 days, 33 days, 32 days and last month was 28 days so I'm working off 28 😬 if I test before AF is due there's more chance of bfn right?
@Twitchett22 I would take the average of all the cycles you’ve had since coming off just to be sure, that way you eliminate a higher chance of a false negative and don’t get your hopes up. The fertility friend app that I use has re-calculated based on an average since I started using the app and I feel like that’s good so I don’t have to think about it too much haha
But look out for typical implantation symptoms, I’ve been seeing a lot of people (the ones who notice implantation anyway) they have gotten a BFP as early as 3-4 days after those symptoms, all individual of c but if you are feeling antsy maybe 12dpo at the earliest?
So my update, according to my BBT I haven’t ovulated yet, keeping an eye on my chart to see what’s up but I did get a sneaky feeling last month that I was later than predicted (hence BBT monitoring this month)
There’s so many things I’ve suddenly become aware of since getting back into my natural rhythm after my Mirena was taken out. I have more pain every other month on my left side during ovulation for example.. twins run in my family so maybe I hyper ovulate from my left ovary? 🤔 anyway how’s everyone else doing? Any more symptoms?
@gingerglitter4ever thanks! I'm going to try and hold out for as long as possible but I'm so impatient. I work in a hospital so have used the hcg machine there before but i don't know how sensitive it is so i might try to wait until AFs due and use a CB digital
Hi all! I seem to be in a similar situation as most here ☺️ according to Natural Cycle app AF is due on Friday 21st Feb but that’s the app assuming it’s a 33 day cycle. This is my very first cycle since coming off the pill on 14th Jan and I’ve had my withdrawal bleed. No idea what to expect as I’ve been on the pill for 12 years and can’t remember what my cycles are like! I think I ovulated on 1st Feb but basing that purely on stabbing pains that I’m guessing was ovulation pain haha. So hard to tell! Fingers crossed for all of us 🤞🏼 It’s just a waiting game for me to see when AF arrives and I can work out my cycles a bit better!
I'm due AF on 21st too and think I am 5dpo, last 2 evenings I have been completely exhausted and really painful breasts with a sharp stabbing pain on left side. Energy levels are up a bit today but hoping it's all good signs 🤞
@LuluHeidi its so annoying not knowing what your bodys doing isn't it 😂 and you get all excited coz AF hasn't turned up only for it to appear a couple of days later 😡
@becca321 I've also been exhausted and little pains around my womb area and having constant headaches but I can't work out if it's a sign or I'm just willing it to be 😩 so frustrating having to wait!
Hey! I’m due 23rd and 2 DPO - on cycle 6 ish as oh works shifts so not always around. First one and 35yrs old 🙈
I don’t know why I have high hopes this month because I tried testing for ovulation and it’s matched my app!
However, I had a chemical pregnancy in December and it made me want things even more. Worried I’m going a bit crazy over this ...
