**Calling ALL TWWers** Testing buddies starting 15th June Onwards(408 Posts)
Hello and welcome!
I kinda wanted to make my own thread as I've been itching to POAS at only 7dpo 😒 I know I know... ridiculous right?
So need you lovely ladies to join in and keep each other distracted, share your experience, have a giggle/cry together and most importantly have each others support during BFNs and BFPs.
Please feel free to jot down your cycle/dpo info and when your AF is due so we can all keep a track of where we are!
This is also a thread where you are free to post any thoughts, poems, pictures, recipes, dreams and aspirations, the good the bad and the ugly 😝
As always stay safe and baby dust to you all!
A fudging F due 17th
Hey @CaramelTart23, I'll join you!
5 DPO (estimated)
AF due around 19th-20th
Completely feel the same about feeling the need to POAS so early. I reckon I'll be testing early on the 15th.
@2020mission Thank you for joining! Lool I knos my hubby definitely thinks I'm a nutjob 😩
How are you symptom wise?
I think one of the reasons why I created this thread was the fact that I'm just feeling really deflated ughg I get twinges here and there and had a bad headache and hot flushes but not putting that down as any kind of preg symptoms other than that I'm not getting what other ladies are especially at my dpo 😞
I think I may be testing next Monday tooo let's hope I can even last that long lol x
Can I join? I’m 9dpo and af is due 15th.
I did test yesterday at 8dpo and today at 9dpo and got faint lines, but after a mc at 9 weeks and a chemical I’m not taking anything as a positive until I’m past af due date.
But I intend to carry on testing every day until I either have a clear bfp or af arrives.
I’m a total poas addict though and will admit I tested also at 7dpo! 🙈
Can I join too please?
Ovulating tomorrow! (Peak opk today!)
AF due 23rd June
Hoping this will be a positive month for all of us. I hated the TWW last month and I used way too many HPT's because I started testing around 8DPO so this month I've told myself I will waiting until AF is due. Hoping I don't over think the TWW as much this month but it's so hard isn't it! 🤦🏼♀️
@Moominmiss @hannah88j heyyy of course you may!! Thank you for joining 😀
Really sorry to hear about your MC 😞 @Moominmiss I know it sets off all kinds of thoughts, I've had an MC myself a few years ago and had a fear of TTC. But I realised that over time it has made me a lot stronger, I am able to deal with emotional setbacks a lot better. Are you experiencing any symptoms? X
Oh godddd I had all kinds of symptoms during the tww last month. I was so hopeful and really excited as it wasn't AF like symptoms and then BAAM AF made her grande appearance 😒
I was just an emotional wreck... but I quickly recovered and hubby who was really supportive bought preseed and vitamins etc.
Feel more prepared this month as we've been BDing every day lol
Let's hope that this thread brings us good luck and sticky bean(s) 😝😝
A fudging F due 16th (or thereabouts, my cycles are a little irregular)
I understand and completely relate to all of the feelings described - I'm veering between obsessively symptom spotting and then trying to calm myself down as essentially any symptoms I have could easily be the start of mild PMS. It's a bit all consuming!
Really hope this month is the month - good luck to everyone 🤞
Wooohooo @Darcy86 welcome!!
Ughgh I've been the same way 😞 it's literally consuming my entire life!! Just the constant googling and looking into other threads and prodding my breasts like it will make a difference 😩
I'm feeling a lot more lethargic and this off feeling in general.
I'm usually someone who can jump right out of bed and get the day going but today I've just been feeling like a complete sloth!!
I'm assuming you will be testing this week? X
@CaramelTart23 same! I was really hopeful but it was my body playing tricks on me and AF showed up two days early just afternoon is wasted another pregnancy test 😂🙄
We've been BD'ing nearly every day as well. I think we've missed 1 day since CD4 lol 😂
I'm ovulating in the next 24 hours though so hoping I haven't worn OH out and he's got a few more days in him 🤞🏻
It will be nice to have a thread where we can all chat about our symptoms and try not to go mad together! Xx
Thanks @CaramelTart23 ! I totally get you, I'm exactly the same!
I'm going to try and hold off until next week to test. I'm weirdly nervous about testing early and think I could become even more obsessive if I started that. It's so hard to wait though! When are you planning to test?
@hannah88j I'm sure you will be absolutely fine haha! One thing I can recommend for OH is Brazil nuts and walnuts. It helps with sperm production
My hubby was and still is snacking on those with a bit of drizzled honey... I know it's TMI 😩😩 but I noticed his 'load' was more creamy whiteish looking as it's usually part egg white and creamy.
I'm trying all I can this cycle to optimise my chances but I wanted hubby to be equally involved as I am.
It's his favourite snack now ☺️
Oh and sliced pineapple for me but only here and there in a week as it is quite acidic
@Darcy86 totally get you. I was extremely heartbroken especially last cycle as I was 4 days late with AF and an Evap line at 11dpo.
I just thought finallyyyy my luck is turning around but at 13dpo got a slapped with a BFN and it scared me to test again.. I sooo wanted it to be real and feel the same joy other women were.
I think what hit hard is that my SIL announced her pregnancy last cycle and I kept being asked when am I going to bring in the grandchildren 😩😭 although they are unaware of my fertility issues.. I just felt alone.
However being on MN really helped me cope and gave me every reason to stay sane!!
Really blessed to be a part of a community that gets it xx
Hey all! so im currently cycle day 22 and AF is due next tuesday 16th. I am constantly overthinking everything, I have sore boobs, pain in side, really tired, emotional but I know its way too soon and think I am just looking for signs and symptoms. I have even got to the point were I overthink what would I do workwise if I got a BFP because work policy is that you have to work from home but then everyone would know so would I just not tell them and continue going to work? silly right?!
Hey can I join ☺️
I have the worst boob pain ever like they feel so swollen TMI but last night I had a big vein across my nipple they were so warm also really tired and headaches but worries I'm just looking for symptoms due AF next Tuesday or Wednesday
What's everyone's symptoms? X😊
Hi!! Can I join?
Cycle #7 (have had 3 miscarriages in this time frame)
31 and trying for #2. Testing around the 19th
@Anastacia1I can relate to that so much! painful heavy boobs, tired - like more than usual to the point where I don't feel I can concentrate but I feel like its just me making these symptoms up! today I have a pain in my right side, prob made that up too.
Hello! Can I jump on. I’m 9 dpo. I have the worst headache today and feel nausea. I really want to POAS but don’t want to waste the only test I have in. I mean is 9 days too early? I’ve been getting twinges in my stomach but think I’m overthinking and looking for any signs 😫 I would normally take ibruprofen for migraines but don’t want to just in case so I’m Soldiering this one out today. Fingers crossed for us all.
@Mayhammonkey 9dpo is still pretty early considering implantation doesn't take place until 6-12dpo.
I understand it's frustrating trying to work out every twinge and aches 😩 I'm absolutely losing mind over it lol
I've had THE worst migraine a few days ago barely could see and cried myself to sleep as I didn't want to take anything for it in case it messes up potential implanting.
@LittleTooMuch I think if I could just go back to work I wouldn't be looking into every little symptom.. but I guess I have you ladies for the distraction. God I would love to have more symptoms. Although I am still only at 7dpo and I've ovulated late this cycle usually it's at CD13
@2020wish really sorry to hear about your MCs hopefully this thread brings you all the luck and baby dust you can get!! Do let me know how you get on I should be testing a few days earlier than yourself x
@CaramelTart23 fingers crossed this is all
@LittleTooMuch yeah so had the tenderness for a few days then when I woke up yesterday it was gone then when I was walking my dogs I got this really weird/sore ache in my left boob then right and it's been coming and going since ...tenderness is back as well ... yeah I've literally slept the last two days between work today's not so bad I'm off and just not done anything feel like it's only really the boob symptoms today odd headache just want to fast forward a few days don't want to get my hopes up
@Anastacia1 heyyy this might sound crazy but I'm actually waiting for the day I get sore boobs.. I don't have much to go on in terms of symptom wise but have been getting hot flushes especially around evening and night time not sure what that's about?
I don't want to get my hopes up as I've been such an emotional wreck in the past. I'm trying to have a more laid back approach but I find myself yet again... googling every little symptoms I 'think' is valid or remotely pregnancy related.
I'm glad to see so many of you on board 😆😆😆
I'm really hoping to see BFPs by the end of this month, we truly deserve this blessing!
Here's to our rainbow babies 🍻🍻🍻
@CaramelTart23 hey I'm hoping it's a symptom I usually get them a few days before AF so could just be normal ... I just feel this time it was earlier than usual and more extreme trying not to get hopes up
@CaramelTart23 yeah I'm the same I've been watching TWW YouTube's for the last week then I tell myself I need to stop this it will happen eventually 😫
Hi all! Thought I would join this - first month TTC and AF due on 16th so nervously awaiting...
Over the past few days been feeling very queasy. Had a lot of headaches and currently laid in bed as I'm just exhausted! Had a few cramps and lower back pain the last two days. Anyone having symptoms like this? Driving me mad! The only other timeI've felt like this was last year before I had a MC. But I'm sure I'm just overthinking it!
