So, this is our first month properly trying!

So this month my ‘estimated ovulation’ was today (cycle day 14)

From cycle day 9 I experienced EWCM until day 11, which then changed to Cloudy CM & Now appears to be getting thicker!

I cannot pinpoint ovulation, but on Monday I experienced cramps.
On the Saturday (cycle day 9) prior I had nausea and headaches which continued until cycle day 10.

I almost feel like I ovulated on Monday cycle day 11!
I just have that gut feeling, along with EWCM completely gone now!

So annoying not knowing!! So I’m going with 3DPO!

Anyone else??

Hey! I'm 1DPO and in the same boat, this is our first cycle TTC as well!

I've been tracking my BBT and OTKs with Natural Cycles. Hoping for the best but preparing for the worst.

Is this your first pregnancy? X

Hey @Rachipops
Thanks for joining I was beginning to think I’d be on my own here 🥺

I didn’t track my ovulation - I just saw the signs that happen around it so pinpointed ovulation Monday or Tuesday this week!

This will be my 2nd pregnancy xx

Congratulations on your first!

I am going to try really hard to wait until 10DPO to test. Are you likely to wait or will you be an early tester?

Also are you eating well or have you changed your diet at all? I'm feeling guilty after devouring a pizza tonight 😂

Kates21 Sat 06-Nov-21 01:03:47

My little is 4 years old now, so really would like another!

I’m going to try and wait til my period (18th), but my partner is due home from work on 22nd so would love to surprise him with a positive! Who knows!

I’m still eating as normal tbh, if not better & more - I had a kebab tonight probably not my best option 😂

@kates21 hey, how are you feeling?

I'm really paranoid I miscalculated my ovulation this month as had egg white CM past night 😪

I have such long cycles too it feels like forever until I can get excited again. But we'll see.

Could also be overthinking it because the EWCM was only there once. You'd think in this day and age they'd have better devices to tell us these things haha!

Kates21 Sun 07-Nov-21 19:56:00

Hey!

I’m good, very tired, sore boobs especially nipples, and had dull ache cramp (not painful) all day and yesterday! God knows what’s going on!

I think everybody is different isn’t it! Try not to worry about the EWCM I know it means fertile cm but I’ve experienced it throughout different days of my cycle in the past.

I had 2 days of EWCM cycle day 9-11 that’s why I’m assuming I ovulated maybe Monday or Tuesday last week!
Who knows. The wait is killing me tho!!

Hi! Hope you don’t mind me joining, I’m a little behind! Positive OPK this morning, however that was on a Clearblue, however IC were still negative! I haven’t had my usual Ov pain, or any EWCM which is unusual for me. It’s also only cycle day 15, which is super early to ovulate for me, as my cycles are typically 38-50 ish days! I’m treating this as my ovulation, but I’m going to carry on DTD every other day for another week, and continue to use IC OPKs just incase, but for now; I’m about to join you on the TWW! 3rd cycle for me, and TTC baby 1! Goodluck ladies!

Rachipops Sun 07-Nov-21 20:13:04

That's so good that you're experience symtoms already! I heard that they usually they don't kick in until implantation, so maybe you ovulate earlier than you thought 😍

You're right, who knows what is going on. Just gotta keep going and hoping. 🤗

Kates21 Sun 07-Nov-21 20:19:37

@Peonies94
Welcome!! Thanks for joining!

@Rachipops
That’s what I thought - im almost certain I sore a very small blood stream earlier but I can’t be certain, or my mind is playing tricks on me! But I’m just going to have to wait this one out to see it AF appears!

Welcome @peonies94 ... is 94 anything to do with your birthday maybe? Because I'm a 1994 gal too!

Also a long cycle sufferer of 35 - 40 days. 50 sounds rough!!

When are you planning on testing?

Rachipops Sun 07-Nov-21 20:26:12

@kates21 I am very excited for you. Sounds like all the right things for implantation. When do you think you'll test?

Kates21 Sun 07-Nov-21 20:33:00

@Rachipops
I’m really trying not to get my hopes up, I can’t deal with the negative after convincing myself it’s time!
I may test next Sunday! So I have another week to go! Xx

@Rachipops I am indeed 94 girl! Is this your first child? How many cycles in are you? My last cycle was 46 days, and it’s just so hard waiting so much longer isn’t it? This month I could be having a really short cycle if i am actually about to ovulate though, as it’s so early for me, so this one could be a really typical 30 day cycle, if all is true!!

Last month I started testing at 7DPO and drove myself a little crazy, so I’m going to try and hold off until 10DPO, though I’ll probably cave at 9! What about you?

Rachipops Sun 07-Nov-21 21:05:34

@kate21 that's when I plan to test as well! I feel better knowing you're on the same boat 😍

I swear as I'm typing I'm feeling pinching pain in my uterus area! But I am probably just imagining it 😂

Rachipops Sun 07-Nov-21 21:09:30

@peonies94 awk isn't this just lovely then! Yes this is my 1st. Although I had an early pregnancy miscarriage in Feb 2020.

Although it was a surprise pregnancy, it made us realise how ready we were for starting a family. So since then we bought a house and got a puppy, and now we're trying for real 😍

We're you on BC before? I found my cycles were unsettled for a while after that.

Peonies94 Mon 08-Nov-21 06:15:25

@Rachipops yeah sorry to hear that! Yes, I’ve always had really irregular cycles though before the pill too! I’ve been off it 6 months now. Ahh that’s fab your both testing Sunday, will you both be 10DPO? I’ll probably wait until the Tuesday, or Wednesday if I can wait!

Kates21 Mon 08-Nov-21 08:01:24

@Peonies94
Sunday I’ll be 13DPO if I assumed ovulation on the day I calculated! My period is due around the 18th, but I think I ovulated earlier so assuming period is due earlier!

@Rachipops
I’ve had constant twinges etc but I suddenly can’t remember if this happens every month 😂
God I hate this TWW!!

Peonies94 Mon 08-Nov-21 11:33:41

@Kates21 ahh that’s good self control! My AF usually arrives by then. I have a 10 day Lat phase, so I think I’ll test 9DP0 as not sure I can wait longer! 🤦🏻‍♀️

xoxo321 Mon 08-Nov-21 12:00:30

Mind if I join you on here?

Also just starting my tww and distractions already needed!! Not a lot of hope for this month but hanging on to the small chance that it could still happen!

Hope you're all doing ok so far 😌

Welcome aboard the struggle bus haha.

Do you know how many DPO you are? X

Rachipops Mon 08-Nov-21 12:25:32

I swear to god girlos, I'm experiencing the weirdest itch / light burn feeling on a tiny point in my uterus today... hoping its early implantation but also well aware I could be imagining things haha. I feel like I could literally scratch it, I know exactly where it is.

I also had crazy vidid dreams last night!

How are we all doing today?

xoxo321 Mon 08-Nov-21 12:31:00

@Rachipops According to OPKs my peak was yesterday so the premom and flo apps are saying ovulation is today - first time I've tracked so all new to me!

Long story short my OH is unwell so weren't able to dtd during my peak so.. I'm not in a particularly good mood today 😂

Rachipops Mon 08-Nov-21 12:35:31

@xoxo321 Men!

We cut it pretty close to the wire as well this month, we DTD 3/4 days before my positive OTK on premom.

So just hoping those swimmers lasted the distance!

Sending you all the good vibes and baby dust. Is this your first cycle TTC?

xoxo321 Mon 08-Nov-21 12:56:17

@Rachipops In a similar position here, the only time we managed to dtd was also around 4 days before peak so fingers crossed 🤞🏼!!

This is our third cycle, but second actively trying. The first I'd just come off the mini pill and my body was all over the place so couldn't really track anything. How about you?
