Me! I'm 32 and TTC #1. Cycle 5, 10 DPO. Have had BFNs yesterday & today, I know it's early but can't help myself! Have quite long cycles (40d) so it's very tedious waiting each month!!

babyG123 Sat 25-Apr-20 23:15:15

@gb000 welcome! I have 36 day cycles it really is soooo long!!!

I'm 32 too. My DS1 is 13months so this is number 2 for me and cycle 1 🤞🏼🤞🏼

Fingers crossed for you! Yes it's v annoying though could be worse! I actually had a fertility work up recently and the obgyn said long cycles just happen to some people so it stopped me stressing quite so much. Feel suddenly since turning 32 that everyooone is preg around me. It's hard not to get panicky about it!

@gb000 I had the opposite when I was younger. Most of my friends children are 8-16!!! I found the party life 🤣

Hoping to send us luck

@2020wish I'm so sorry 💐. That must be incredibly tough. Sending you a virtual hug!!

I just turned 32 this year. Came off the pill as didn't want to leave things too late for #1 but not actively trying, just not not trying... I don't want to get too overwhelmed with the potential pressure of it every month as I am a huge worrier

babyG123 Sun 26-Apr-20 09:03:01

@2020wish of course and welcome. Sorry to hear this. 💐

@ShellMc2237 welcome! Finger crossed for you too!

Hoping to bring good luck to us all.
Totally impatient and lucky DS1 was a surprise so I didn't go through all of this waiting game!!!

@shell welcome! Yes, I am finding it hard not to get obsessive every month. I am trying to stop googling every little thing which has helped.

Speaking of which...I usually don't POAS until closer to my period (I'm 11DPO & have another 5 days before AF due...). Does this look like a faint line to you ladies!?

2020wish Sun 26-Apr-20 09:12:09

Thank you all sad. It’s been tough and weird x

ShellMc2237 Sun 26-Apr-20 09:39:11

@Dee8416 , you can use the paperclip logo to attach photos but think you have to have posted a few times before it will let you.

Dee8416 Sun 26-Apr-20 12:22:10

Oh my gosh congratulations @gb000 !! Amazing!

Do you know when you ovulated this cycle? My cycles are long too, 36-39 days and I ovulate really late. On CD23 today and still no peak on OPKs.

babyG123 Sun 26-Apr-20 13:58:42

@gb000 wooohoooooo! So happy for you xxx

Thank you girls! Honestly so in shock. For some reason I never thought it would happen.

@fifi1989, I think I ovulated on cd24. But to be honest this is the first month I've ever had a peak on OPK - all other months the strips have gotten dark but not darker than control line, and last month my clearblue never went beyond flashing smiley. But I know I O'd at least one of those months bc a scan confirmed it. So I wouldn't trust OPKs 100%! Do you track CM and temp?

fifi1989 Sun 26-Apr-20 16:20:20

@gb000 I've only just started temping yesterday. I've had a peak on OPKs in the last two cycles on CD26, but no BFP yet ufortunately. Late ovulation (at least I think i'm ovulating...) and long cycles are so frustrating when it seems like everyone else has perfect 28 day cycles with ovulation on CD14! Think i'm just getting impatient smile It's our 3rd cycle trying so still early-ish days I guess.

Huge congrats to you! x

gb000 Sun 26-Apr-20 16:58:31

@fifi1989 totally know what you mean - as soon as we started trying I was impatient! Even harder with long cycles...I think staying distracted is good! Wishing you all the very best of luck!!

babyG123 Sun 26-Apr-20 19:52:01

@gb000 just was thinking of you and wondered if you know you add 2 weeks to the clear blue which makes you 3-4 weeks xx
