Moogatron Mon 06-Oct-08 14:29:36

Me too, one week!

spats Mon 06-Oct-08 16:19:12

This is 3rd month. 1st two DS conceived in 1st month so this is really frustrating (and clinical). Think got PMT as really grumpy so not holding out much hope but wish it would come quickly so can get on with next months try.

Hello! Af due Monday 13th, ttc no. 4 after mmc in July. No symptoms at all to report really other than slightly sore boobs which I would have anyway a week before af. Am determined not to test early though, so test day would be 14th for me!

questions2008 Tue 07-Oct-08 10:33:24

erm, i tested this morning blushblush
obviously BFN

i have one more test left, so either I won't use it till i'm late or i end up using it and then don't have anymore and will be forced to wait. well that's my logic any way! wink

only symptoms this week are a few spots on my face (which i get before AF), random feelings in pelvic area (which could be imaginary). I felt nauseous in ASDA a couple of nights ago, but that again could be imaginary!

spats Tue 07-Oct-08 12:33:52

questions that was early wasn't it? did you use a very early kit? When will you be late? mine is due mon so almost same as lovelymonster. My symptoms are being a really miserable cow!! but that could just be pmt and the nervous,endless wait for next mon which seems so far away!!

LullyMummaOfOne Tue 07-Oct-08 13:43:08

Im sue the 17th, a bit longer than a week but i can still hang with ladies for support & cheary chat!
I still have my free clear blue digital test that is still in my knicker draw so will be using my cheap ebay one first then the clear blue to confirm! Fingers crossed for us all!

Oh just a bit of info for you lovely ladies, this is my 2nd cycle after a MMC in July. I have a DS who is 2.5 yrs. Lets hope this is a lucky thread!

Diege Tue 07-Oct-08 13:53:03

Lully, this is also my second cycle after mmc in July - so fingers crossed for us!
There seem to be quite a few of us due on Monday or there abouts - hopefully the odds are that at least a few of us will strike lucky smile

LullyMummaOfOne Tue 07-Oct-08 14:39:06

Im sympton spotting already. Im sure i had tingley boobies the last few days and i keep getting very mild like period pain in my lower tummy. Although i know all of this is second guessing i still live in hope!

questions2008 Tue 07-Oct-08 15:24:22

yes it was early testing, i'm not due for another 6 days and I knew it wouldn't work but i couldn't help myself....

the thing is, i used to have the copper coil in, which would mean i would get really painful cramps a day or so before AF was due so I'd know it was coming. But now that it's out I don't know what to look out for.

LovelyMonster Tue 07-Oct-08 15:35:07

Great that there are lots of us due around monday. Seems like an eternity away!! I am working this weekend too so will drag!

Becase we did not get the bd dead on this month I have decided to take a realistic approach to symptom spotting (just this month, next month will be crazy lady again shock)

Sore boobs: Always always always have sore boobs prior to af!
Tiredness: Stay up too late watching desperate housewives.
Snappy and grouchy: Tired becase stay up too late as above.

At least i can be thankful I am yet to break out in spots. He he. Hope this blog does not sound negative case its not written so.

Moogatron Tue 07-Oct-08 16:08:46

I have no pre AF symptoms and no other symptoms. Wierdly, I have found circuit trg REALLY hard this week- am clutching at straws here......(hmm).

clairey80 Tue 07-Oct-08 16:32:02

i'm due 17th, going to barcelona on the 18th............ major fingers crossed!!

ray81 Tue 07-Oct-08 17:53:54

Im due around the 14th so about a week to go.

I have been TTC for 4 and a half years for second child, DD is 7. This is my first month on clomid and hoping this is a good luck thread too.
Have realy sore BBs but always have them, have back ache but always have that too. Dont think it has worked but heres hoping.
Good luck everyone i realy hope you all end up PG.

baby dust to you all.

spats Tue 07-Oct-08 19:15:08

gosh ray81 that is such a long time, really hope this month is good for you. Makes my 3 months seem not so bad. My sis tried for 18 mnth and got pg 1st mnth using clomid so there is hope.

is being grumpy a good sign does anyone know?? Not sure how quicly pg kick in. Maybe just tired and stressed though. Only 6 days to go!!!

PussinJimmyWhoooos Tue 07-Oct-08 19:24:26

Am due to test this Thur....only managed to BD once this month as DH had to go away urgently but it was the same day I had EWCM and the day after, I had colour, which I always do when Ov so...

Symptoms so far - tingly boobs and weeing loads in the morning even though have not changed my fluid intake or my breakfast. However, I am very anxious in the mornings as am awaiting an update from my DH re my MIL (terminally ill) so the weeing could be nerves couldn't it??

spats Tue 07-Oct-08 19:27:24

Oh puss sorry to hear about MIL - the stress must be hard. Not sure how quickly pg symptoms kick in so weeing could be nerves or hopefully a positive sign of a BFP coming your way - fingers crossed for you - you need some luck. How long you been trying?

PussinJimmyWhoooos Tue 07-Oct-08 19:41:13

This is only the 2nd month so not very long at all. Funny thing though, pre DS I never showed any colour when ovulating but now I've had about 5 normal cycles and each time on day 14/15 - bam! I think last month we BD too early as I had a 30 day cycle so hopefully this month by bd'ing on cd15, I may have cracked it....its so hard though as you imagine every symptom going and then feel a twat when AF arrives!

LullyMummaOfOne Wed 08-Oct-08 10:06:19

For some strange reason i testes last night which is far to early in everyones book and guess what its was a BFN!! although i wasnt supriesd i just couls resist temptation! I am now holding out until the 17th- thats a promise!

SecretlyInHiding Wed 08-Oct-08 10:16:45

Hello all you fellow due-next-weekers!

Period not due until 14th but I've tested twice already blush.

I feel sick (psychosomatic?), sore boobs (get them at this point in my cycle anyway) and tugging pains in the general area of my uterus. Hmmm.

I am driving myself mad, when I fell with my first child I had all these symptoms for TWO WEEKS before I finally got my bfp. I suppose that only time will tell...

PussinJimmyWhoooos Wed 08-Oct-08 12:19:27

I tested this am with fmu but bfn...however, last month I had my period on CD30 and so this being CD27, it could be too early....I ovulate on CD15 or 16 as well so I'm expecting a slightly longer cycle iyswim?

I don't know why I end up testing - I never believe a bfn this early! Am addicted to the buzz of weeing on a stick I think!

ray81 Wed 08-Oct-08 12:41:39

Hi spats, I think however long you've been trying it feels like forever when it doesnt work first month. I'm kinda getting used to it now, it seems like just a part of life!!! i do go through times when i just want to give up though and this is one of them i realy hope this clomid works i could do with some good news.

Puss, weeing alot is due to increase in progestrone i get it every month so could be just a sign of AF coming although you never know.
i think you must be addicted to peeing on stick, me i hate the things and refuse to do them wherever i am in my period i have this stupid idea that i jinx myself when i do them and all the time i dont there is still hope. I think you got BFN as it is to early so am keeping fingers crossed for you. how long is your LP? its best to keep track of that it gives a good idea of when to test.

Baby dust to you all and good luck.
