Wanna join my 2ww? (January)

post #1 of 216
Thread Starter 
Anyone in the middle of a two week wait?

We were going to start TTC after I got my dental filling this month. I'm probably not pregnant, but I've just been feeling really tired and hungry lately, so of course it makes me wonder. I was TTA, and we DTD a week before O ...so it's so unlikely, but then I started reading some thread on here, and once in a while there's that person that says it happened to them. Now I'm like "What! I didn't think it was possible for sperm to live that long!"

It's possible for sure! I will join you in your 2ww. I forgot to mark when I got my visitor this month but I think it was the 20th so I think around the 17th I should be due or testing. Good luck and lots of baby dust to you! :

I'll join ya. Af is due on Friday. Took a test this morning bfn, I'm hoping I'm just one of those 49% who don't get a positive this soon.

Cool, thanks for joining me.

I just took a $ store test this morning at 12 dpo and it was negative. AF isn't due for 4 days, so we'll see what happens.

I'm in! I'm still BFing my 17MO, and so am having totally random periods. I'm not really sure when I'm ovulating (if at all I guess), but the start of my last period was Dec. 17th and we started trying for the first time last week. If I were regular, I'd say I'm testing on or after January 14th. Symptoms thus far include abdominal cramping, lower abdomen "feeling," dry mouth, and little waves of nausea. I have been having some random nausea since starting my period though, so this all could be a coincidence, but of course I'm obsessing. Why is TTC so annoying?

I'll join!

My last period began on 12/10. My cycles are usually very regular 29-31 days. My husband and I went on a "grand baby making tour" vacation to celebrate the face that we were TTC #1. We were gone from 12/22-1/1. He got a horrible flu for the second half of the trip, so we didn't dtd as much as we had planned....I should have o'ed during the vacation, but don't really chart so can't be sure.

Well, I know it is my first 2ww - and that people do it all the time... but this 2ww is KILLING me! I poas as soon as we walked in the door on New Years! In my mind, I knew that there would be no way that a + would appear so soon, but I was insane. Two days later, I couldn't resist buying another test while grocery shopping and got another neg.

I have had every preg symptom in the book: vivid dreams, bloating, cramping, tender breasts, intense ...well, "bitchiness" is really the only word. Last night I got what felt like hot flashes and this feeling washed over me...in that moment I knew I was pregnant. And it wasn't joy that I felt. It was....terror. I felt like I was unprepared and alone. Meanwhile, I am fully aware that I could be manufacturing these symptoms in my head. Ugh

So, long story longer (sorry) I ordered some preg tests from amazon that should be getting here on Wed. I will not allow myself to go to the store and buy any more before then. I have to control myself!

Good luck to all of you!

I am 8dpo. Of course i have all the pregnancy symptoms I was even vomiting all morning. But I also had a migraine. I've been exhausted too. But today my cervix started hurting like it normally does around AF. Its still Low Firm and Closed though. who knows. Still bf dd 800000 times a night so, my lp is really short. I poas today but neg of course. Last month I got a bfp at 8dop so thought maybe I would this month too. No such luck

I'll join in too, we're not technically TTC, but we're not avoiding at all either. LMP = 12/20, DTD at 13, 15 and 16 DPO, set to test/start AF 1/16 or so.

I'm going a bit nuts here, wavering between hoping for a BFP and not - timing is off for us as we weren't even thinking of TTC until a week ago, and I think we were just a bit caught up in New Years, etc this month, so we'll see. :
post #9 of 216
jayemtee - I think you and I will be testing at about the same time. So yesterday, I was having lots of "feeling" and a little cramping, but today, not much of anything. Trying not to get my hopes up too much because I don't think we DTD on the right days. We were going along pretty well, but then got into a little "disagreement" and ended up sort of ignoring eachother in the evenings right in the period when we should have been trying...lol Oh well... guess we'll see. How's anyone else feeling?
post #10 of 216
I'll join. I'm not charting, but according to my normal cycle, I should have ovulated a few days ago. I'm analyzing every little thing already, and I won't even be testing until the 21st. I'm excited and scared at the same time. I'm scared because of our previous miscarriages. I've already been nauseous a couple times, but that sometimes has happened before without being pregnant. I had some minor abdominal cramping - I've never had that symptom before unless I was having my period, so I don't know what to think. It's such a long hard wait. We sort of had a "baby-making vacation" too, but it was also our anniversary , so we had a couple days at a B & B which was wonderful. It'll be really neat if we are pregnant, since this baby would have been most probably conceived on our anniversary.

Mind if I join?

I'm closer to the end of a wait than the beginning, as AF should be here tomorrow or Thursday, and I always start first thing in the morning. My temp went up .1 yesterday and then back down .1 this morning, so I obsessed over all my charts for the last 6 months on FF for a good part of the morning (if anyone wants to throw in their two cents, have a look at them). I have a few good signs, I think. I always spot on DPO 8 and 9, and no spotting yesterday or the day before (today is 10DPO). So, even if my chart is a day off, I should have spotted yesterday, but didn't. I also had some light cramping/tension last night as I was falling asleep and a bit this morning. I also had some dream that I can't really remember, but I woke in the middle of the night really happy, and for some reason thinking that I was pregnant. On the other hand, I had pretty sore breasts 4DPO until today, but no soreness or anything today. I'm definitely in a "meh" kind of mood today! So, I am not sure if I'll test on Thursday when FF says I can. I might wait until Friday if no AF by then.

Good luck to all you ladies. This is my first month playing the waiting game, and I feel totally batty! I keep telling myself that everything will happen in God's time, but I'm having a hard time "letting go, and letting God," if you know what I mean.
post #12 of 216
I think I'm either 2 or 3 dpo now, so I'mma come in here finally I will be testing 1/17 or later. IF I get that far. I refuse to waste tests anymore unless there is a GOOD reason to!

Checking in...

Just checking in...

It's funny how skeptical I am this cycle. I have good reason to be, but it's almost as if I'm bitter, or something. See, my last two cycles I had tons of pregnancy symptoms during my LP...Like the kind you don't make up (nausea, vomiting, heat flashes, tiredness, cramping) We really thought I might be pregnant (DH was "sure"). It's just so frustrating when you find that you're not, despite what you thought your body was telling you. It's almost strangely embarrassing. Who knows, technically, I could have been pg, and the HPT just couldn't pick it up that soon, but I doubt it.

In the "I'm Pregnant" forum, I started a thread asking who got pregnant from dtd way before ovulation. (cause that's my situation) I got more response than I expected. It's a pretty interesting read. http://www.mothering.com/discussions....php?t=1021224

I just posted my chart in my sig. (I got kind of lazy around
Christmas, because of all the traveling, so that's why there's such a huge gap in my temps.)


How's everyone else doing?
post #14 of 216
my cervix is low and medium today. That means af is probubly around the corner 9dpo. af is usually here between 10 and 12. so its the final days for me and my 2ww.

Oooh, so great to have a POAS buddy, lol! Maybe you can keep me from doing it too early, as I'm already feeling tempted. I've been keeping track of AF and CM, but not temping, so I don't know exactly when O was, but I'm thinking we hit it pretty closely.
post #16 of 216
I think my 2WW is about over, too. I started spotting this afternoon, just very light pink/brown, which I always do around 8 or 9 DPO. I wanted to believe that it could be implantation spotting, but I've never had that with either of my other PGS. I assume I wouldn't have the usual spotting if I am PG (has anyone had any experience with this?) So, AF will surely be here in a couple of days.

This was our first cycle trying, and I knew in my head that it was unlikely that we'd get PG the first time out the gate, but I'm totally bummed. We were never "trying" with our other two, so I've never had this kind of cycle of trying, then waiting, then big disappointment, before. To make matters worse, my husband will be hardly sympathetic. Let's just say he consented to this (after almost 2 years of pleading), rather than agreed, if you know what I mean. If we never get PG, he'll be just fine with it.

Thanks for letting me rant a little. I am feeling really frustrated right now. Good luck to all the ladies that are still waiting. And to the ladies with AF knocking at the door...tell her this is her last visit!!!

I'm nearing the end of my 2ww. My little mind trick that I played on myself seems to be working, as I have not run to the supermarket in a fit of insanity and bought more tests...the preg tests should arrive from amazon tomorrow.

I told myself I will wait till Sat morning to test (the day my period is due...) but I'll bet I start peeing on those bad boys as soon as the UPS driver leaves haha!

My gut says I ovulated on the 24th, but I can't be sure since I don't chart. I'm trying to hold out on poas since I don't know exactly when I ovulated.

I feel very alert and super awake -- if that makes any sense. My mood stopped swinging this week. And my breasts feel huge and soooo tender. This all could also mean that my "beloved aunt" is coming for a visit. Gah! Waiting! Good thing I'm almost done!
post #18 of 216
I would love to join too! I need something to distract me. I can't seem to think about anything else! I am about 6-7 dpo I think, expecting AF by 1/15 for sure. I feel like I have lots of symptoms but I'm afraid that I'm just paying way too close attention to my body! :

we can test together AF will technically be late as of sat but I'd still only 13dpo.

I'm not sure when I o'd either since I didn't temp this month. But we dtd on day 3 of ewcm and high open soft cervix which closed and was firm the next day and dry cm...I'm half hoping I was right about O and half hoping I was wrong b/c new baby would be due 4d before dd's bday
post #20 of 216
I'm in too... This is our first cycle "trying" after our miscarriage, and I'd love to get pregnant again right away. I know it's unlikely, but I can always hope. Last time we got a BFP the first cycle I checked CM and used a OPK. I did that this cycle too, so who knows...

We DTD a LOT this month, so there should have been plenty of swimmers up there waiting, lol. I'm 2 DPO now, and expecting AF 1/16. I have short cycles, so my wait is a little shorter, but last time I didn't test positive until about 14 or 15 DPO.

*sigh* I hate waiting...

ETA: I can definitely empathize with being hyper-alert to changes in your body during The Wait. I get paranoid about every little twinge!
