Hi ladies,

I HATE this two week wait window and it kills me every month 🙁 I become so obsessive over every twinge or pain or 'symptom' and wondered if any of you are in the same boat?

I'm 28, and my partner and I are TTC baby number 1. We've been trying since November 2019. I miscarried at the start of February and had a chemical (we think) in April. I feel like my cycles have been all over the place which doesn't make the wait any easier.

Using clear blue digital ovulation tests, conceive plus and all the vitamins around.

Took a test this morning and BFN. With my MC in Feb it was because my body wasn't producing enough HCG so I'm terrified if I do get pregnant that could all happen again.

Anyone else testing soon? 🙂

Hi, I'm really sorry to hear about your miscarriage. I'm definitely similar with the symptom spotting. It becomes a bit all-consuming doesn't it?! My cycles are a bit odd as well, always on the longer side and length always varies by a few days so it makes things a bit harder to track.

We've also been trying for our first since November - well, we stopped using protection then but I haven't been tracking anything else up until this month. I've just started using the clearblue digital ovulation test and a bbt thermometer. I think I'm around 7-8 DPO right now. No symptoms at the moment other than a mild cramp/pull in my abdomen for the past couple of days. I'm going to try and wait until my AF is late to test...if I can!

Fingers crossed for you. X

I’m also 28 and been trying for first baby since October. Now being on cycle #10 I’m the symptom spotting gets easier as now I know most of the “symptoms” I’ve had in the past we’re clearly nothing!
I’m currently 10DPO with AF due Tuesday.
We’ve been trying everything; preseed, OPKs, tablets, fertility cup, reflexology. Getting fed up of it all!
Fingers crossed it happens for us all soon ❤️

Totally consuming! It's nice to hear from someone in the same boat. It's hard to speak to friends about it who aren't in the same place or haven't been there. Feels like the longest 8 months ever 😒

I've been using the clear blue ovulation sticks for a couple months now and I much prefer them to regular OPK's, they were a nightmare to read and I never felt the line was dark enough so didn't know if I was ovulating or not! Least the clear blue ones take the guess work out for us.

I think I'm going to hold off for a few days now, in theory my AF should be here on Wed but with my cycles being all
Over the show I can never tell.

Fingers crossed for you 🤞🏼

Hi @Nat4392. Sounds like we're pretty similar in our journeys so far- sucks doesn't it! I'm also getting pretty sick of it all to be honest.
Feels like since I've been TTC my social media baby announcements have gone through the roof!! It's tough seeing it every month.
My AF is due Tuesday/ wed but my cycles are all over the place so I never know for sure.
Hope you get your BFP this month 🤞🏼

Hi OP it's awful isn't it? Every month I say I won't turn into a crazy lady but then from around 8dpo I turn into crazy lady googling, poas and it consumes me. Then I feel a rubbish mummy to my little toddler!

We miscarried at the end of last year and until then I was calm about it but now I think about it so much and I hate it!

Let's hope we get our bfps soon and we get put out of our misery! Xx

Forgot to say I'm also 11dpo and did a frer this morning that couldn't be more white 😭

@raspberryjamlove it's so horrible isn't it 😞 so sorry to hear about your MC, they're physically, emotionally and mentally exhausting. I also tell myself every month that it's all cool and I'm relaxed about it, then check my clue app about 100 times counting my DPO as if they will have somehow changed.
Mine was also soooo white this morning. I know 11 dpo is considered too early by a lot of people so fingers crossed we see some lines over the next week or so!

@chasingmyrainbow I tend to agree with the CB ovulation tests, the other ones are a bit confusing although I know they're cheaper so if this is going to take a lot longer I might have to consider them at some point! Also it's a nice feeling to just get a smiley face, as sad as that sounds!

AF is due early-mid next week for me, so not too long to wait to test now, trying to remain level-headed but it's hard. Crossing fingers for some lines to start appearing for all of us!
