Its doing my nut! Have been using fertility friend and from dates I have given it etc... it say that I am due for my period next Sunday (27th). About right from my calculations too, lol!

Am so wanting it to not come this month and have a BFP already! Fingers crossed. Anyone else due to tst around this time too. I am determined not to buy any early detection tsts and just to wait (yeah right!). Must be strong!

Hi HNYF, I too am due to test on the 26th/27th and have been sympton spotting like crazy, to the point where I believe I may have an OCD problem.... wink

Am on cd24. Am 9dpo. Have been TTC n0.2 for nearly 10 months now (although I did get preg in feb but miscarriaged)

Symptons soo far have been:
A pulling type pain in my lower abdomen for a few days now -
Nausea -
Diarrhea (which is likely to be totally unrelated)-

Do any of these sound promising?

What symptons have you had and how long have you been TTC?

Hi, Sorry only just seen your msg.

This is our first month of ttc and are ttc number 4!!

I am 8dpo.

I have been symptom spotting but don;t know if its my mind working overtime. I have had a weird sensation right down low. Went to bed REALLY early last night but am unsure if that is related or not, just feeling tired all round.

Oh roll on next week!

HappyNewYearFeet06 Mon 21-Jul-08 09:34:39

Anyone, I feel lonely. Waiting2exhale and myself need more ttc buddies!


Jools1 Mon 21-Jul-08 11:55:00

Hello - can I be your buddy!

Wasn't even actively TTC, but wanting to. Didn't even know much about my cycle / fertile times etc, but have spent hours browsing this site and worked out that we must have done the deed at the right time.

Two days after, I started getting enough strange sensations that I started googling early pregnancy symptoms and decided I have a lot of them, including the sore boobs and big time evil mood swings, wind, bloated tum, and had some cramping, dizziness and nausea on Fri !

Trying not to get too excited. AF possibly due on 26th, possibly later. Think I am 11dpo but not certain. Trying to wait and not try any (more blush) early tests but will be on holiday in Spain from Wed, so am taking some tests with me !

HappyNewYearFeet06 Mon 21-Jul-08 12:03:37

Hi Jools,

I wasn't very in tune with my body and have been using fertility friend to plot possible fertile/ovulation times etc.... Due AF around 27th/28th and am not going to do any early tests (hopefully!).

I too don;t want to get too ecfited as it is our first month of ttc but have been symptom spotting like mad, lol! What are we like!

Good luck and keep us posted.


Caitni Mon 21-Jul-08 12:44:29

Hello! Can I please join in?

I'm ttc #1. I'm 9dpo today, with AF due Friday, so FF has given me a test date of Saturday 26th. I'm planning to not test until then, as have wasted tests in the past. I've decided that all these early tests are just a way to drive us all mad and make HPT manufacturers a fortune!

I also had a pulling sensation in my lower tummy for a couple of days, but am trying my best to not read anything into it. I've had three sessions of accupuncture this month so am hoping that helps and I get a BFP!

Fingers crossed for us all and hoping this is a lucky thread with lots of BFPs!

HappyNewYearFeet06 Mon 21-Jul-08 12:48:57

Hello Caitni. Welcome to the thread. I am glad there is a few of us now!

I have been using fertility friend and found it very helpful to keep me on track so to speak.

Lets not waste our pennies on early tests if we can!!

Fingers crossed for everyone. x

beanieb Mon 21-Jul-08 13:39:20

My period is due on 30th, can I join for fun?

JLo2 Mon 21-Jul-08 13:40:20

Can I join too??
TTC #4 Cycle 4 (I think!)
Trying not to be too obsessed, but failing miserably this cycle.
AF due 26/27th

HappyNewYearFeet06 Mon 21-Jul-08 13:43:17

Hi beanieb and JLo2. Welcome.

I think we are all trying not to be too obsessed JLo2 but it can't be help when it comes to ttc.

Roll on this weekend and beyond.


yellowflowers Mon 21-Jul-08 13:44:16

Can I join?

Am 12 dpo and had a bfn this morning but have been irritable (no change there!) and other niggly things but breasts not tender and no sicky feeling and still crave tea and coffee! Have had horrid lower backache though. Expecting af on wed or thurs and will test agin fri if not here.

Jools1 Mon 21-Jul-08 14:03:00

I just did a boob check and I swear the areola are getting bigger and darker, just like they should

but then again, I could just be imagining things ...

HappyNewYearFeet06 Mon 21-Jul-08 14:18:23

Hi yellowflowers and welcome. Sorry about your BFN but do test again if AF doesn't arrive.

Jools1, You could be right. The thing is I would never usually notice any changes unless I wasreally looking for them and only doing it now we are tcc, if you know what I mean.

Lets see if we can get to the weekend without testing early!

yellowflowers Mon 21-Jul-08 23:10:32

oh no - spotting started...

Waiting2Exhale Mon 21-Jul-08 23:50:35


Glad to see me and Happy are not alone anymore. Sorry for the late posting but I only get a chance to visit this site at a bit of a 'secret lemonade drinking'....hehehe...showing my age now.

Yellowflower - sorry to hear the spotting has this usually how your AF starts?

Caitni - Am with you on not giving the manufactures anymore money than needs be. Am hoping to last to the weekend before taking my first test. Lord knows thats gonna be hard blush

Jools1 - If you do break down and test while visit MN and let us know how it went. Enjoy your hols. Just wanted to say that as am likely to miss you last postings before you go.

Me, still have this weird pulling low down. Could be AF signs or dare I say it... the beginnings of new life. Oh how I wish...ehehehe.

Almost 11DPO. The count down has officially began ladies...YEAH ! grin

Jools1 Tue 22-Jul-08 07:51:38

Hope the spotting isn't AF Yellowflower. I noticed vague brown-ish spotting briefly yesterday evening (often how my AF starts) but nothing since. If it was starting, I would expect my boobs to have deflated overnight, and I'm also still horrendously moody and tearful (major row with DP last night)

Waiting2Exhale - fingers crossed and thanks for the holiday wishes grin, yes, I'll try to log on from Spain but don't know if I will be able to. AF is officially due at the weekend, so if she doesn't arrive earlier, I'll probably test then but might have to wait till Wed next week to post !

JLo2 Tue 22-Jul-08 08:22:08

I can't believe it's only Tuesday! I'm with you, Waiting2Exhale, in that I'm desperately trying to wait until after the weekend and keep on spotting symptoms that could be AF arriving or preferrably not arriving.....
I convinced myself yesterday that I had a headache that then turned into a backache that then became nausea as well as strange aches low down. I'm sure it's all in my head and I'm slowly going mad grin
It's my birthday on Friday, maybe I'll treat myself to a test!! Then again, I don't want to spend the day fed up that it's a BFN

JLo2 Tue 22-Jul-08 08:25:26

I don't want to give false hope, but I found out about my last pregnancy because of the spotting and DS is now a very healthy 5 year old wink

HappyNewYearFeet06 Tue 22-Jul-08 08:53:34

Hi Guys,

I am counting down to the weekend too.

Determined not to test beforehand.

Not feeling right today and I don't know what it is?

Yellowflower; hope everything is ok?

Jools; Have a lovely holiday, I have a friend who has just left for Spain too. I'm not envy at all!!!

yellowflowers Tue 22-Jul-08 11:38:21

hi, yes think it's period proper which means it was 28 day cycle not 31, It keeps changing. Have checked fertility friend though and we did have sex on day 13 and 14 so guess it's just not my month (again)

JLo2 Tue 22-Jul-08 13:07:53

sad Sorry to hear your news yellowflowers sad

Caitni Tue 22-Jul-08 14:10:06

Sorry to hear AF got your Yellowflowers sad - hopefully next month will be your month xx

HappyNewYearFeet what do you think this "not feeling right" is? Could it be a symptom??

<<<waves>>> to all the other ladies. Hope you're all well and not going too mad on the TWW!

I'm also desperately waiting for Friday, when AF is due, and still planning to not test until Sat, but time is moving soooo slooowly...can't believe it's only Tuesday lunchtime! I'm 10 dpo and no spotting yet (which is a Good Thing), no more pulling sensations since Sunday night and tender (.)(.). But trying to not read too much into it as I have "symptoms" every month!

HappyNewYearFeet06 Tue 22-Jul-08 14:15:10

Hi Caitni,

I think it may be but don't want to read too much into it. I have never visited the toilet so much since I was last pg and have never woken up in the night before, well apart from when pg too. Just feeling, I don't know, a tad bit queasy too but again don't know.

Am definately not testing until after weekend if need be. Am due AF Sat/Sun so will test on Mon if nothing. Will get a test in ready over the weekend!

Caitni Tue 22-Jul-08 14:27:00

Sounds pretty hopeful to me HappyNewYearFeet smile. Am keeping my fingers crossed for you xx
