Continuation of previous threads new name...
ooo fun new thread
This weekend, we're having a lovely barbecue with a friend (well a couple and their baby) then on Sunday my niece and I are going to sew some curtains. She's very excited.
@candycrush2298 thanks for the new thread!
Ovulation was Wednesday according to femometer although only by OPK. They were peak Tuesday.
BD sat, sun, mon, the and Wednesday. That’s literally the most we’ve ever done consecutively. Even on honeymoon 😂
As you said there’s no such thing as a quickie when I’m up at 6 for work and there’s 30mins if leg elevation.
We used preseed etc. I have an overwhelming feeling today that this hasn’t worked and I’m bummed.
Thank you for the new thread! I hope everyone is doing okay?
It's super hot today (in the south east) so much so I am officially wilting.
No real symptoms here at perhaps 7 or 8dpo.
Anyone having any interesting symptoms?
@Elakiya ooooh sounds like a great weekend planned. The weather looks like its going to be fab again so need to have a think about we going to do. Also want to have a barbecue and might go spend some time with one of my friends on Sunday will see if she is free.
@NamechangeTTC oh yes the day after ovulation is my ultimate rest day lol!!! I enjoy bd'ng lol but everyday is not so hot going to try plan next cycle a bit better so we don't have to do 3 days in a row as I really want to get the SMEP right lol!!! We usually just do every other day. Every time we try everyday we give up after a few days lol!!
Awwww no theres always a chance it worked remember even when we do everything right theres only like 20 or 30% chance we will conceive making a baby is a miracle even if others make it look so easy.
@indecisivewoman81 I am all good thank you. How you doing? Got plans for the weekend?
Its really warm here too in Scotland but not like you guys hot... I would die if we got near the 30 degrees lol!!!
7 or 8 dpo and no symptoms could be a symptom in itself. You never know when are you planning on testing???
@candycrush2298 honesty it's 36 degrees and stupidly hot now!!
I'm probably going to test next Thursday although I am fighting the urge to poas every morning at present. I can't remember feeling like this with my other two children!!
We are having a friend over for lunch tomorrow but not much else planned.
When is everyone is planning to test?
Ugh it’s boiling!!
I’m 2dpo and due on by Friday next week but could start wiping brown Thursday like last month
Stupid short LP
Got my progesterone blood Wednesday at 7DPO
@indecisivewoman81 you got some will power going on i was testing from 8dpo lol!!! Didnt help me much though did it. 13dpo tomorrow and just waiting for AF to show her face now.
I think most of everyone else is in the beginning of their tww like 1-4dpo kind of thing.
As for your previous question about symptoms I have had weird ones that just turned out to be AF so cant tell you any symptom that is actually a pregnancy symptom lol I can tell you I have no symptoms now had mild cramping the last few days alternating between ovaries, and back ache mostly the left side.
Only thing that is really weird for me is that today for the first time ever I have actual lotion CM lol mine has always been milky but more watery so I never knew if it should be marked as watery or creamy lol.
@Boc86 thats excellent news that you have the progesterone test on Wednesday will that be CD21? Holding thumbs you get some answers!!!
@candycrush2298 you're not out until AF arrives and that "lotion" style cm sounds promising!!
The very first time I ever got pregnant (ended in miscarriage) I remember thinking I had flu and was tired and achey then my boobs were sore.
With my DD I remember just thinking I was and I was. I had some slight nausea but never sick and was very tired in the early days .
With my dS I remember just thinking I was and again I was; no real symptoms either
So sometimes I think any symptoms could be a sign. The problem is we become so in tune with our bodies that every little niggle gets us wondering. Xx
Huge stabbing pains around the left ovary today. That’s not planned!
@candycrush2298 I had lotion CM on the first month of trying to conceive I was so excited because I read thread after thread of that being a sign that you're pregnant.... and then AF arrived . But it is still a positive sign as loads of people were pregnant with it.
@candycrush2298 ah you live in Scotland too!!
@indecisivewoman81 yeah i know you are never out until AF but sometimes you just feel it hahaha.
Wow so then you not having much symptoms could well be a symptom for you lol!!!
I agree that we become so in tune so any little thing you think this could be it. That's why I mark every "symptom" down now so that I can see the trends and determine whats AF hahaha.
@NamechangeTTC its likely residual from ovulation sometimes my ovulation pains last a few days. At least you know you ovulated lol.
@Elakiya I also googled in the veginning because I always get watery cm which isn't actual cm not like the fertile kind its just milky wetness hahaha but I have never known what to put it down as so I always said watery even though I know its not that lol. Then I was thinking this is maybe what creamy lotion cm is and so I spent loads of time googling way too much tmi pictures lol and mine never looked anything like that. The good this after so long I have determined what is my normal progesterone cm before AF lol!! But I have already written off this cycle and I am sure my body has whatever reason for making creamy cm maybe thats what it has been trying to make all these months but the antihistamines prohibited it lol or the maca root is normalising my cm lol no idea😂😂😂
@ReginaaPhalange yes I am a South African in Scotland lol!! Are you Scottish?????
@candycrush2298 they are my cd21 bloods but it’ll be cd26 as i don’t ovulate till 3/4 of the way through my cycle - cd19 this time
But effectively they’re what they call ‘cd21 bloods’ basically has to be 7DPO x
@candycrush2298 yep!!!! Or should I say, AYE! 🤣
@Boc86 oh right hahahaha makes sense I had to have them twice because they thought my prolactin was high but it wasn't. It was totally normal lol.
And it was always CD21 makes total sense now even though mine was 8dpo lol. Really hope they can help you out hun xx
