Or TRYIING to wait till then as in my case....

Hi there... as title says really. I am on CD 36 of a usual 32 day cycle, however this is 2nd cycle since last mc so I am trying to wait another week at least before getting too excited.

Mega symptom spotting, knicker checking and general madness associated with TTC.

Please feel free to join me and hold my hand while we wait to test.


TTC#2 DD aged 4
Been TTC for 16 months. Have had 3x BFP's unfortunatly all ending in early mc's.

look forward to chatting/ moaningsmile x

I'm in. Hopefully testing about the 27th as it's my birthday. I'm currently 2 dpo so not symptom spotting ...yet.

Knicker checking???

ImmaterialGirl Tue 18-Aug-09 21:10:28

Yes! I am. Weird, I just said to DP today that I'll test next Tuesday if no AF by then...

Just one week...

Kaystar Wed 19-Aug-09 05:54:53

I'll be testing around that time too. Think that AF is due on 29th (cycles vary) and if I get too impatient I might take one of the early tests.

TTC #1 and only the first cycle but now on DPO 5 (I think) and, like you, have been analysing every little twinge... I was convinced at the weekend that I was pregnant but now I'm not so sure.

Roll on next week

Hi everyone.

If I can wait that long then I'll probably be testing. I just came off the pill after 6 years so still don't really know my cycle length yet. AF came last month after only 22 days and I'm on day 26 this month, although from what I remember from before I went on the pill I was always about the same time each month. I would guess my cycle length is 28-30 days so really hoping AF doesn't arrive at the weekend and then I'll probably test next week.

Does anyone have any experience with the cheapy ebay tests? Do they actually work?

sky27 Thu 20-Aug-09 20:12:29

If af doesn't get me by tuesday morning I'm gonna cave and test. Anyone else getting impatient?

Trying4Baby1 Thu 20-Aug-09 20:15:47

I am!! Seriously thinking of testing tomorrow as I'll be CD28. What do you think? Is that a long enough wait to test? Am trying to wait till next week or even Sunday but getting sooo impatient! grin

emma2617 Thu 20-Aug-09 22:55:27

hey ladies!!! I should really wait until at least 25th to test but am going to test on saturday as i know i cant wait!

I have a 5 and half month old and only had sex once since having him (unprotected...before i remembered i had missed 2 pills!) i have come round to the idea of a second now and really want to be pregnant!!

sky27 Thu 20-Aug-09 23:07:35

Trying Do you know the length of your lp? That'd help. Good luck if you test fingers X

Im joining you im on day 23 of my cycle and have already tested it was negative I only tested because I have a wedding Saturday.
Im going to wait because sons bday is 29th may do it then if no af.

Trying4Baby1 Fri 21-Aug-09 09:22:46

Hiya all, decided what the hell I'll do a test so did one this morning and BFP!!! Still can't believe it. OMG well no going back now grin. Showed DH as I hadn't even told him I was testing just incase I got a BFN. He just looked like he was in shock. Line wasn't really dark and I know that doesn't matter but going to do another test on Sunday as it should be more pronounced and might help it sink in a bit more!!

Still can't believe it but had to tell someone so you guys are my someone. Feel sorry for DH as we decided not to tell anyone till after first scan and that would be ages away. Never mind he's better at keeping a secret than me!

pinotgrigiolarge Fri 21-Aug-09 09:46:16

Congratulations Trying4baby1 thats great, really happy for you wish you all the best keep us updated xx.

sky27 Fri 21-Aug-09 09:59:40

Congrats trying that's such good news.

emma2617 Fri 21-Aug-09 15:06:10

Congrats trying!!! If you,re going to re-test I strongly recommend a clearblue digital...there is no feeling quite like seeing the word pregnant show up, far more emotional than seeing a line!!!

I tested oday, but didnt use FMU and got a BFN! Not surprised as it took like 4 weeks to finally get a BFP with my first, I think my body is very slow at producing HCG!

Trying4Baby1 Fri 21-Aug-09 16:37:49

Thanks everyone. Still a bit in denile (sp?) about it. DH actually said to wait till I got tested at the docs before getting excited and I had to explain that they don't bother doing that any more as home tests are so reliable. Good luck everyone and hope you get some BFP!!!!!

Kaystar Fri 21-Aug-09 17:54:50

Congratulations Trying - that is fabulous news! Let's hope that we get more BFPs in the next few days

1LittlePrincess Fri 21-Aug-09 20:24:15

Hi all,

Really sorry that I created this thread and then not posted again since. My internet has been playing up so havnt been able toget here.

Huge Congrats Trying thats super news, hopefully you'll bring luck to the res of us smile

OK so I am now on CD39 getting really desperate to test, but worried incase its a BFN. Although I am convinced that I Ovulated early for me around CD 10-13 ashad EWCM and Ovulated pains, I also had EWCM on CD29 so could only be 10 DPO!

Still at least 25th is nearly her. Wonder how many of us will test before then wink

How is everyone going on the symptom spotting?

My jeans are feeling incredibly snug today, I am convincing myself that the bloating is down to being PG. It is however, more likley down to the fact that I cant eat 'meals' due to sickness so am instead pigging out on biscuits smile


sky27 Sat 22-Aug-09 17:08:57

How is everyone? anyone caved yet? I thought I was done for last night, even put a pad on I was that sure af would arrive in the night but I woke up feeling fine...bloody body lol.

emma2617 Mon 24-Aug-09 10:06:13

i have caved 4 times already!!! With my son it took ages for my HCG levels to get to a reasonable level which ended up in scans for ectopic pregnancy etc! So i dont know why i bothered testing less than 14 days after we did the deed!!

I am now resolved to not testing until at least friday possibly even next saturday!

godblessmothernature Mon 24-Aug-09 10:11:02

Im new please help ttc on the 7th aug im on 27 day of cycle ,AF lasts 5 days when could I test next to know for sure preganant or not please help going mad.

sky27 Mon 24-Aug-09 15:05:04

Godbless do you know when you ovulated? Or your normal cycle length?

I'm holding in no sign of af yet. I caved this morning and BFN - what did I expect, only 8 dpo blushI don't care, i'm gonna test everyday until af arrives.

Anyone else test this am?

Babydust to all

sky27 Mon 24-Aug-09 15:07:57

Princess I'm with you now - knicker watch - was out shopping today and felt damp, panicked until I got to a loo TMI, I knowblush

Anyone else behaving strangly?

emma2617 Mon 24-Aug-09 16:29:21

hey ladies! despite my resolve not to test...I was out and about again today and walked past boots...i say walked past, I went in and bought a test, and just did it...another BFN! Though thats not a huge surprise considering its only 16 days since we did the deed and I didnt use FMU and it took 3 weeks to get a negligable result with DS1!!

sky27 i get that same panic whenever I feel even remotely damp!

sky27 Mon 24-Aug-09 18:42:46

Does anyone else have a friend who so desperately does not want them to get pregnant that they gloat when you say your due and have cramps?!? She has just made me cry twice sad Unfortunately I can't get away coz she's staying with us for awhile, which is the only reason she knows we are TTC.

Feel really low, af is chasing sad

emma2617 Mon 24-Aug-09 19:59:01

sky27 she sounds like a total cow! What business is it if hers? If she's any sort of friend she should be supporting you!

When I was TTC DS1 even my frineds who had previously mc'd were supportive and happy for us when we got pregnant.

Unless she has a VERY good reason then she is just being very, very cruel.

I'm sending you babydust and lots of it! (I have very fertile pregnant with DS1 on cycle one after implant removal and DP has low sperm count!!)
