Omg yes, came off the pill last month, had normal bleed then one proper af, ttc first ovulation after. Had pain in right ovary with ewcf so think that’s Ovulation. Been feeling all manner of things In lower abdomen, bloating etc but it’s only 7 days so am I imagining it. Obsessed with testing knowing it’s far too early. Help! 😂

I’m 1 dpo. It’s already going slowly 😂

Yep! 5DPO and had mild cramps on and off today, but surely it’s too early for those sorts of things..? But never had them at this time before! 🤪

Hi girls can I join? AF is due on the 9th!
This will be our 4th month trying after a miscarriage, fingers crossed x

Af due 15th for me. Not convinced it’s gonna happen for us this month - first cycle trying.

Longestride25 Sun 06-Sep-20 04:32:30

I’m now 7dpo well I think 😂
One week to go before I can test.
Have a massive head ace and sore boobs actually feels like I’m due on early !!! 😭🙈

Hi @Longestride25 I hope it’s okay to join? Very new to this!

Long story short I came of the pill in Feb (Cerazette) after 12 years. To my surprise by cycles came back very quickly and have been very regular.

First official month TTC #1. Only managed to DTD once in Aug around ovulation (I think from my app it was 1 day before ov and had EWCM so I’m hopeful).

Anyhow, I’m now (I think) 6DPO, 7 days since DTD (cue severe case of symptom spotting!!). Yesterday I had mild cramps all day and a bit so far this morning. Yesterday also had the tiniest bit of white/yellow ish stringy CM (sorry if that’s TMI). I don’t know if I’m just being hopeful tho confused

No other symptoms so far. Have read countless threads. Some have obvious symptoms from 6DPO and go on to get their BFP. Others have no symptoms and don’t realise until 6 weeks!

So in summary, at a bit of a loss in this crazy 2WW but wanted to join so I can chat with others. I hope that’s ok!? X

HopingForTheBest24 Sun 06-Sep-20 11:09:06

@Orlandoflorida1 it’s my first cycle too and I’m due AF around the same time (14th for me). Any symptoms? How many DPO are you?

Orlandoflorida1 Sun 06-Sep-20 12:58:26

Hey @HopingForTheBest24 I’m not really symptom spotting as I don’t feel like we tried hard enough this month 😂 happened first time with my DD though so who knows. Back then I had a weird taste in my mouth and also strong sense of smell. Nothing yet! How about you?

HopingForTheBest24 Sun 06-Sep-20 13:09:56

@Orlandoflorida1 I suppose we aren’t really officially ‘trying’ as only coincidently DTD day before ov but aren’t preventing either and both said we’d be happy (I’ve wanted a baby for a while!). I had cramps start yesterday in lower abdomen (5dpo - I think) and a little today. Could all be in my head though as any other month probably wouldn’t even notice ! Yesterday slightly thick stretchy cm (sorry!). Only once and tiny amount but think I’m normally quite dry from ov to AF.

How many DPO were you with your DD when symptoms started?

Such a confusing time isn’t it as I read lots that people have had no symptoms and that was the month they caught !

Orlandoflorida1 Sun 06-Sep-20 13:20:37

@HopingForTheBest24 I didn’t actually know when I ovulated I had a really weird cycle when I was pregnant with dd. I didn’t even think I was pregnant and was desperately waiting for AF to come so we could start again!

HopingForTheBest24 Sun 06-Sep-20 13:25:19

@Orlandoflorida1 I’m just hoping this week goes fast. I don’t want to test until AF is late. Although I was 2 days late last month for unknown reason (hadn’t DTD as I was really ill all month so wasn’t pregnancy related) so if that happens again it will set me off 🤣

LemonDrizzle44 Sun 06-Sep-20 14:26:39

Hi all. Hope it's ok to join.

I'm currently 7dpo and spotting symptoms like mad. I've had a strange feeling in my lower abdomen and have felt nauseous for the last 2 days. I'm similar to you @HopingForTheBest24 me and DP aren't properly trying but not being careful either so will be happy if it happens.

I ovulated on CD17 (earlier than usual) and we DTD CD15,16 &17. I track my BBT. Had a dip yesterday so hoping this was an implantation dip as has picked back up this morning. I have a 10-11 day luteal phase and my temp usually drops 8dpo ready for AF. So if temp stays up tomorrow I'm hoping this is a positive sign. Will try and hold out til Friday (12dpo) before I test.

HopingForTheBest24 Sun 06-Sep-20 15:23:23

@LemonDrizzle44 welcome! Have you been TTC for long or is this your first month also? I’m not tracking temp etc so can’t give much advice on that. Although from reading lots I do believe it dips then stays up so fx for you!

LemonDrizzle44 Sun 06-Sep-20 15:39:03

@HopingForTheBest24 thanks. I came off the pill in January (not TTC but more for my mental health). DP works away a lot so really hard to try properly. This is the first month we've been together around the time of ovulation.

HopingForTheBest24 Sun 06-Sep-20 15:43:25

@LemonDrizzle44 this TTC malarkey is tough! Well if it makes you feel better DH actually isn’t that interested in sex (I know - who knew that was possible in a man 🤣) so it’s hard to get the timing right.

I came off the pill earlier this year think it was Feb. Actually DTD ovulation day in March but wasn’t aware as hadn’t had my first period since coming off. Didn’t catch that month though so trying not to get too hopeful.

My DH has a history of steroid use also which really upsets me as I want nothing more than our baby but have a feeling it’ll be hard. Just made another post about that to see if anyone has any success stories.

All we can do is wait I guess...

LemonDrizzle44 Sun 06-Sep-20 15:50:39

@HopingForTheBest24 fingers crossed that it happens for you soon!

Who knew TTC was so difficult! I started tracking my bbt last month as my cycles were getting longer (started with 27 day cycles, which increased to 36 days). So was curious as to what was going on and when/if I was ovulating. I've found my LP is 10 days which is a on the shorter side of normal. If I'm not successful this month ive got some B6, B12 and high dose vitamin C lined up for next month to try and lengthen it.

HopingForTheBest24 Sun 06-Sep-20 16:14:14

@LemonDrizzle44 everything crossed for you! When is AF due? Are you testing before or if she doesn’t show?

LemonDrizzle44 Sun 06-Sep-20 16:20:31

@HopingForTheBest24 AF is due between Thursday and Monday. I plan to test on Friday which will be 12dpo if AF doesn't show herself by then.

HopingForTheBest24 Sun 06-Sep-20 16:27:34

@LemonDrizzle44 good luck and keep us posted! I have another week from tomorrow Of waiting 😑😩

HopingForTheBest24 Thu 10-Sep-20 07:44:53

Any updates ladies ? @LemonDrizzle44 @Orlandoflorida1. I’m 10DPO today. No real symptoms. Think I’m out sad thought I had the tiniest bit of brown / pink CM but now at the stage where I think I’m imagining !

Orlandoflorida1 Thu 10-Sep-20 07:48:10

Hi @HopingForTheBest24 I’m 8dpo today. Yesterday I had a dip in temp and today it’s gone right back up. I’ve had a couple of days of cramps and got sore boobs but could just be getting ready for AF Wednesday

LemonDrizzle44 Thu 10-Sep-20 07:53:02

@HopingForTheBest24 I'm 11dpo today. Still no AF. I caved and tested yesterday BFN. Been cramping since 6dpo but cramps are worse today like she's on her way. My bbt hasn't dropped and RHR is still up too so none of the usual signs she's coming! I've woken up with a headache this morning and really hungry which is very unusual for me. I've got no more tests so I'm waiting a few days and will get some more.

HopingForTheBest24 Thu 10-Sep-20 07:56:08

@LemonDrizzle44@ @Orlandoflorida1 sounding positive girls ! I’ve also had cramps on and off since 5/6 DPO! Haven’t tested yet. AF due Sun / Mon so may just wait as think I’ve got my hopes up. Didn’t really try this month after all !
