3dpo here - AF due 2 December! Feels like a long wait already...

Albiesmum2021 Thu 18-Nov-21 22:03:04

@Hopefulhedgehog it feels like forever doesn't it. Last month, I got loads of cheapies on amazon and tested constantly from about 10dpo convinced it was my month. Going to try to hold out this month until AF is due!

Hi ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป Also in the tww, not completely intentionally ๐Ÿ˜‚
We havenโ€™t really been trying this month due to other things going on. So no tracking or testing etc, but yesterday I noticed a couple of odd symptoms, then went on my fertility app for the first time this month and realised we dtd on my most fertile day. So I guess Iโ€™m not out ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ 5dpo if the tracker is accurate. Who knows. I feel like itโ€™s unlikely but I still like going through the tww with others! Going to try and wait until 13dpo before testing this time!

Hi @Bex7290

I'm symptom spotting already! Didn't use OPKs this time so not exactly sure when I ovulated but dtd plenty around that time. We've already got one but didn't try as such. Came off contraception and just decided to see if anything happened so I don't know if I had any symptoms between ovulation and AF with him! I'm going to try wait until next Saturday but know I'll cave before because I have 5 Internet cheapie left ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ when are you due on? Loads of people say it happens when you aren't trying!

@Albiesmum2021 Its so interesting to hear of so many who actively try for months with no success but when they have a break from it is the month they get a bfp! AF due on the 28th, so going to try and hold off before then ๐Ÿ™ˆ I just donโ€™t feel like it will be a bfp this time round though. How about you? Have you had any symptoms yet? I have a First response and a clearblue lying around somewhere so I know Iโ€™ll probably test early too with the temptation lying around ๐Ÿ˜‚

Hey, 7 DPO here. Only odd thing this month are my dreams. The last few days have been mad including aliens & monsters. I can remember them all.

Not feeling very confident this month. DP was away on my peak days & I have regular PMT at the mo. A bit emotional & withdrawn.

Hey ho! A week to go!

lettyloulou Sun 21-Nov-21 13:54:14

Can I join? I'm 1 DPO. We dtd yesterday on my most fertile day (five times ๐Ÿคญ). We were trying previously for 18 months with no success - this is/hopefully will be my first baby.

I had fertility blood tests last Christmas which were fine. Life got in the way and we stopped actively ttc. In April this year my period didn't arrive when it was due, but as I'd spent years and years convincing myself I was pregnant then being broken with endless BFNs, I wasn't even tempted to test. I was cramping like it was coming literally any minute. Got to four days late, did a test out of annoyance and there it was, my first ever BFP.

I knew in my gut something was wrong when my digitals weren't progressing from 2-3 to 3+. I then started to bleed and miscarried at 7 weeks, made extra traumatic as my HCG levels stayed static for nine weeks. It was back and forth to the EPU. The whole thing was horrifying and I've spent the months since recovering.

But anyway, we are trying again now so good luck everyone waiting to find out and fingers crossed for that magical moment ๐Ÿ˜

Albiesmum2021 Sun 21-Nov-21 15:59:45

@Bex7290 no I don't feel like I'll get a bfp this month so going to hold off until next Saturday. We have a babysitter and are going out for a few with friends so want to make sure I'm not before I have a drink!
I did get a spot on my chin which I never do and thought this must be it but no, nothing!

@groovesintheheart I had funny dreams last month and that convinced me! Fingers crossed for you. I'm hoping I do this month but really don't feel like I will be!

Hi @lettyloulou ๐Ÿ‘‹ omg five times! Super woman haha!
Oh I'm so sorry. Thats so sad ๐Ÿ˜ž I hope you get a BFP soon and it's a sticky bean โคโค

The tww is horrible isn't it. I literally think of nothing else ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ˜‚

Super hubby more like ๐Ÿคฃ I've got everything crossed for you all. I know the heartbreak of BFNs and mc so all the luck in the world ladies โœจ

Hi everyone! Would love to join this thread! Myself and DH have been trying for 6 cycles already. Fingers crossed this month is the charm!
@Albiesmum2021I am due on the 30th, so very close to you! Likely going to hold off on testing until missed AF, as I find the BFN very hard to deal with. I'm already thinking I'm out though, as I've had cramps and back ache (typical for my PMS symptoms) since 2DPO. I've also got CM, which I get before AF arrives. One can always hope, eh? smile Baby dust to everybody ! x

Hp345 Mon 22-Nov-21 19:01:31

Hi guys! Can I join? This is my first cycle ttc and am currently 4dpo. I am finding this tww so hard. The days are just dragging! Obsessing over symptoms but at the same time I don't really feel different. I know it's still early days but can't thw mind going into overdrive!
Lovely to read all your posts and praying you all get a bfp soon! Xx

Hp345 Mon 22-Nov-21 19:04:42

@ali2021 Be gentle on yourself. You're not out until she's here. Praying for you! X

@lettyloulou Thats to sad to hear, hoping this is your month and you get the bfp you deserve! X

ali2021 Mon 22-Nov-21 19:51:30

Thanks, @Hp345 - also keeping everything crossed for you!! Days are fairly dragging by, yes!! Will you test before AF is due, or just wait it out?x

Hp345 Mon 22-Nov-21 19:55:02

Thanks @ali2021 AF is due on the 01st Dec but I don't think I'll be able to hang in there until then. Was hoping to test on Monday. Would that be too soon? Currently 4dpo. It's so nice having people to talk to!

ali2021 Mon 22-Nov-21 20:10:35

11dpo seems like a very decent wait!! ๐Ÿ˜€ I am due nov 30th. Will this be your first? It is indeed so lovely having others to chat to. It's hard as I don't feel happy chatting to my family or friends about it. I'd rather people not know we're trying; less people to have to update!! ๐Ÿ˜†

Hp345 Mon 22-Nov-21 20:31:49

Ah just before me, excited for you! Praying its your month! Yeah it's my first cycle so first tww. And oh my gosh, does it drag! I am a bundle of nerves. Ok going to test on Monday. Which tests are the best? Shall I order a bunch of cheap ones from Amazon or do a frer? I know how you feel, so much easier not telling family and friends and avoiding the constant questions and pressure.

MrsYan Mon 22-Nov-21 20:50:49

Hey, please can u join to? I have just had my peak on OPK so about to start my TWW.

I hate this wait ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ I'm far too impatient!

MrsYan Mon 22-Nov-21 20:51:18

I meant can I join*

Not a good start sorry ๐Ÿ˜‚

Albiesmum2021 Tue 23-Nov-21 07:50:01

@ali2021 that is close to me! How do you hold out on testing? I find it so hard even though I know it makes no difference. I'm testing Saturday as going out so can have a few drinks if it's negative. Hopefully it would show. With ds, I found out the day before on a cheap b and m test and wasn't fmu!

@Hp345
I'm obsessing over symptoms too!! Think I make things symptoms when they most probably aren't!! When are you going to test? I use the amazon cheapies but only because I become obsessed and test loads!

@MrsYan
Hi ๐Ÿ‘‹ also hate the wait! Hopefully this is a lucky thread and some of us see a BFP!

Can I join! Iโ€™m 99% not pregnant as I came off the pill in summer and not had a period since August.

However, DH and I threw caution to the wind this weekend as Iโ€™m waiting on a scan from the GP to see whatโ€™s going on (I have pcos as well).

So im probably not, but thereโ€™s a tiny chance I could beโ€ฆ going to buy folic acid today just in case

Albiesmum2021 Tue 23-Nov-21 08:38:59

@Mushrooms0up hi ๐Ÿ‘‹ โ˜บ
I have a friend who missed a pill and is now 4 months pregnant so it is possible!

Mushrooms0up Tue 23-Nov-21 08:41:39

@Albiesmum2021 thank you! It was such a spontaneous (drunken) decision this weekend Iโ€™m think it would be a big surprise if it did happen hahaha

BabyFeet92 Tue 23-Nov-21 08:51:41

Hi all
I'm 8DPO now, but I have no symptoms at all so trying not to get my hopes up.
I don't usually test early, but I think I might this month. I suspect that I had chemicals the previous 2 cycles, but because I didn't test, I can never be 100% sure. I think it's probably better to know than to wonder.
Holding thumbs for you all!
