2WW anyone? Af due Friday(407 Posts)
I am new to mums net. I am currently in my tww and losing hope again for this month. My af is due Friday the 24th. I have no symptoms really! Slight bruised feeling in sides of my boobs, and yesterday and sharp stabbing pains in my pelvic area. That's about it really. Just feel like af will show again and it's not happened again. This was my chart for this month as well and when we dtd
Hey, same here. AF due this Fri.
I've been pretty symptom-less, apart from a couple of sharp pinching sensations on my right side/pelvic area on Saturday and lower back pain for the first half of yesterday. I don't usually get cramps or back ache with AF, it just comes, so I'm not sure if this will be a new and improved AF or what.
I think I must be 10/11 DPO today - I broke my promise to wait until at least tomorrow, tested this morning with FRER and got...nothing.
Hi @rita83 welcome to Mumsnet! Is this your first you are trying for?
I'm not exactly sure when AF is due but I ovulated Friday 10th, and normally have a short luteal phase of 7/8 days (which the doctor is starting investigations over) but have now made it to day 10 so am just daring to hope. Had cramps on Friday so thought AF was starting (also had two spots of blood) but nothing since then so very strange!
Really hoping for you and Danani that it's your months
Thanks @Janey3090!! I hope it's our month!
10 days and no AF when you usually only get 7 or 8 sounds SO promissing!!! Have you tested yet?
This sounds promising for you as if you get af type cramps and a little bit of blood this can be implantation bleed. No this is not my first time I have three girls and fell with all three within two months. I am hoping for a boy though this as well. I had a chemical pregnancy in December last year. I had positive pregnancy tests for two weeks that were declining. It was so upsetting as this would again have been the second month that I would have fell. I had a sharp twinges yesterday in my left pelvic area as well and today nothing at all. I feel fine and I normally get af pains 4 or 5 days before and haven't got them this time either. I probably won't test until af is missed. I came on two days early last month as well and it was a very strange period. I had a day of heavy bleeding and 6 days after only light blood when I wiped. Sorry tmi I know 🤣 x
@Danani I haven't yet, still expecting my AF to turn up at any point. Holding out to Wednesday/Thursday then if no sign of it will test then. Eeek!!
Are you going to test again later in the week? Read loads of stories of women getting negative tests then a positive one a day or two later x
Danni did it feel like the pain u get when u ovulate cos that's how it felt to me. I said to my husband I don't normally get this now, not 5 days before af. It was coming and going over about half hour or bit longer. One time it made me jump and say ouch!!!! X
@Janey3090 I think I won’t be able to help myself tbh 😬 In an ideal world, I will wait until Fri or Sat when it should be one day after missed AF. But in reality…I might do another test on Wed. I find it so tough to wait around, but the testing and the BFNs just make me feel worse, so I’m in a hell of my own making.
@rita83 I don’t usually experience any ovulation or period cramps to be honest, and this was like a stabbing sensation, lasted only a few seconds but I had to stop what I was doing, it got me by surprise!
Yes this is what mine felt like as well sharp jabbing pain right in the pelvic joint area. I feel fine though as well. My boobs are bruised pain if I push them at the sides but other than that I feel ok x
I’ve just updated my ovulation day on the Flo app, from Thursday the 9th to Saturday the 11th (only by my method as I missed my surge on OPKs, though it was definitely negative Tuesday, Wednesday & Thursday ).
After doing so, my estimated period day is now Friday as well so I suppose I’ll jump on here too 🙂
Might get myself one more pack of FRERs as I cannot wait till the end of the week to see if AF arrives or not 😂
Good luck ladies ✨
Hahaha!!! We are all in this together and my fingers are crossed for all of us but I think I'm out just have that feeling as I don't feel pregnant what's so ever!!! X
I'd love to hop on if okay?
AF due on Sunday so a few days after. I think I'm around 8/9 DPO. I've got a full aching pain in my lower tummy today and my boobs are a little tender but that could be usual time of the month.
Think we got ovulation but who knows!
Hey! AF due on Friday and had the same sharp pelvic pain mentioned by others above. Backache has kicked off a bit in the last few hours and some AF type pin which I don't normally get until a few hours before. Boobies a bit fuller and more tender than normal, but I'm on month 1 so I think it's maybe because I'm looking for it all 😂 I'm 10 DPO and tested this morning but nothing.
Think of the Superdrug points @Mummytobe93 😂
@MrsM29 were on exactly the same cycle I am due Sunday too and am 9dpo today!
When are you going to test?
Lol. I too ordered another pack of FRER and the CB early 😬😬😬
It feels somewhat encouraging we’re all experiencing similar “symptoms” this cycle, hopefully that’s good news!!!
@beckybabyx I'm trying to hold off until 12dpo so hopefully Thursday morning as I have a FREr not sure if I can hold off any longer? How about you?
Hey ya all. Well for the past hour I have had mild period pain. Can feel aching in my uterus and little twinges and pains in the bottom of my back. Is this af gonna show cos it's due Friday or cld this be something else I have no pregnancy tests at all in the house 🤣 I am just gonna see if af shows which I'm adamant it will. Just have a feeling.
@rita83 I admire your willpower (and have very similar symptoms).
I am so new to this but wanted to hop on as my af is also due Friday. This is the first month of properly trying, i did the clearblue ovulation test on tues 7th and it was static face, does this mean i'm 12 dpo? I've been testing everyday since Friday and its driving mad! I also can feel AF coming as i get very specific cramps so not sure why i can't stop with the testing!
@MrsM29 I think I’m gonna hold out until Friday/Saturday if AF doesn’t turn up beforehand x
Yes Mia you would roughly be that but ovulation Normally occurs with in 36 hours after the static as well. If you ladies go on utube as well and type in the great british sperm race and watch this, it's very interesting and very hard in fact to conceive. Everything has to be right the timing the egg quality the level of mood between u and ur partner etc. Take a look cos it really made me more aware and not to get so distracted heartened by them bfn's as well. I have period type pain at the moment I have had it for about three hours now 😞
Hi all, do you mind if I join? AF is due on Saturday and I'm anywhere between 9-12dpo. Tested a couple of times but BFN, I just can't shake the feeling that it's different this month. No sore boobs, absolutely shattered and last night I woke myself up crying in my sleep because of a horrible dream! I am going to hold off testing again until at least Thursday though. How's everyone feeling?
Welcome @Cruz86 I’m feeling a bit deflated this morning as spotted a tiny bit and I just feel like AF is on her way not due till sat/sun though xx
