TWW testing first week of August

This is my third cycle trying, I’m currently 5dpo and definitely symptom spotting already 🙃 thought it would be nice to have some company in the TWW, meant to have AF on the 5th august but hoping I won’t 🤞🏻

Heya I'm also due AF on the 5th and symptom spotting already 😂

@H1994 of course you do! What day are you due AF? This TWW feels like it’s going to be a long one!
@trailrunner87 it’s so hard not to symptom spot! I feel like I shouldn’t have any symptoms yet at all so don’t know if I’m just reading too much into things 🤣 do you know when you ovulated?
fingers crossed everyone 🤞🏻🤞🏻

@H1994 so not too far behind me only three days! I’ve got a positive feeling this month so we’ll see, how long have you been ttc?

@TC95 no, we're pretty close! (Or at least I think we are... predicted ovulation and that!!) And this is my first cycle TTC #1 so I'm literally a first timer 🙃🙈 how about you??

@TC95 I know it's impossible not to symptom spot. I'm sure it's too early for anything but last month I drove myself nuts over thinking it all!

I ovulatated on the 21st according to Clear blue ovulation tests. It was two days earlier than expected so was glad to be testing. How about you? Did you track?

@H1994 it’s my third cycle ttc #1 as well which is super exciting! So I’m brand new to it all as well, this is the first cycle I’ve taken it super seriously though. The last two I kind of just thought things would happen naturally but nope!

@TC95 ahh amazing, so exciting isn't it! And yeah, I think it's just a matter of working out what works for you... seems very 'catching the timings right', we're probably somewhere in the middle... I use flo for my predictions and we DTD as much as we can/want really 😂🙈 which is harder than I thought! I'm not cut out for sex every other day haha!

@trailrunner87 honestly last month I was convinced my back ache was implantation, turns out it was just AF paying a visit a few days earlier than expected 🙃 but I feel like I’ve had a few twinges today but keep telling myself it’s way to early to even think I feel anything!
I ovulated the 21st as well! Which was also a bit earlier than I thought it would be but glad I tested! DTD the night before and the day after so hoping that enough!

@H1994 honestly my Flo app literally has a heart on it every other day my boyfriend doesn’t know what’s hit him 🤣 especially during that ovulating section I don’t wanna be putting too much pressure on him though as well!

@H1994 you planning on testing early or are you going to wait for a late period?

Hi! Hope you don't mind me jumping on - AF due 6th August. This is our 4th month TTC. We had a MC in May (first cycle) and have everything crossed for this month.
Will be trying very hard not to test early next week but not sure I'll have the will power!

@TC95 Wow so we're on the same timeline this month! Sounds like you've covered it and now it's just the wait 🙃

@H1994 I'm also going to try and not test until AF is due but I'm sure by next Wednesday I'll have cracked!😅

@H1994 I’m gonna try wait for AF I’ve got a test in the draw in the bathroom but wanna try forget it’s there so I’m not tempted to use it haha!
@winstondog11 I’m so sorry to hear about your mc, got everything crossed for you that this is your month! How many dpo are you?
@trailrunner87 yeah just this awful waiting game now! 6dpo now so not too long before we know! I’m off work this week though so feels like the days are going even slower!

@H1994 you could say you’re on antibiotics for a chest infection so can’t drink? and just hope no one asks more questions about it 🤣

Antibiotics is a good one... 👀 how early can we do an early test? (Silly question?)

Hey, can I join? :) AF is apparently due on the 7th, not sure if I believe I've ovulated though! I had two days of static smiles on Fri/Sat which was CD 15/16, I usually don't ovulate till CD22 (this Fri). Also to add to the confusion the highest reading I've had on a cheapie OPK is 0.4! Very confused.
@H1994 can you be the designated driver as your excuse? 😊
@tc95 good luck with not testing!!

@H1994 I think you can take them from like 7dpo but from what I’ve seen they’re not really accurate 🙃
@alwaysseeingstars of course! Welcome and sending lots of baby dust your way! You never know you might have ovulated earlier than usual this month but maybe also keep trying until Friday just in case? So if you ovulated Fri/Sat you’d be around 4/5dpo?

@TC95 bollocks... haha ill have to wait!! I'd be 10dpo then?... and @alwaysseeingstars it's my friends wedding, my other half is my +1, I don't think designated driver would cut it 🙃🙈 I might just pretend? Get lemonades as much as I can and if someone buys me an alcoholic one I'll just pour it? Haha might not even be pregnant at this rate but I wouldn't wanna drink!

@H1994 yeah I’ve seen a few people on here take them and them be negative and then it turns out they’re pregnant!
