Hi everyone! Can I join you? We arent really TTC, but I am suffering through the 2WW. Im 6 DPO, and trying not test like crazy. I know its ridiculous, but last time I tested every single day from 5 DPO to 15 DPO (which was the day I got a BFP) I have a 14 month old, and we werent really trying, but now that its a strong possibility, Im getting more excited. If I get a BFP, it would likely put me in the FEB 12 DDC right? My calculations said Jan 29 would be the EDD, but I figure thats so close to being Feb. (My birthday is in feb too!)
Congrats to all the ladies with BFP's!!!

Well I'm having my first symptoms. But It's so late in the cycle now it could be AF. I'm not sure. I'm testing again tomorrow, and then sat if still no BFP or AF. *Fingers crossed*

I'm barely in the 2WW, I have ovulatory symptoms today (and yesterday) and will prob have a temp spike in the next couple of days. Still, I'm already so distracted, thinking of the possibilities!! We're trying for our first, and it's scary to even imagine how much my life will change...


Happily married for 5 years. Tried for our first baby 6/2011, got preg right away, and miscarried. Took a 4 month break, and then had nothing but infertility & a few early miscarriages until 12/2012 when we learned I had a lumpy edge in my uterus. Doc removed it and now we are trying again....

7 dpo. I caved and tested this morning. Silly, I know. It wasnt a BFP. Thankfully, that was the last stick in the house, so I have to wait until I go buy some more to test again. ::trying to restrain myself until saturday::.

Hey friends! I'm new to these boards. I accidentally posted this as a new thread the other day when I meant to post it as a reply on this 2WW thread.  Still trying to figure it all out.

 

Anyway, Happy to find this group because the 2ww is killing me.  I'm 9dpo right now, jumped the gun against all my better judgment and tested this morning and yesterday morning (obviously bfn). We've stopped preventing a few months ago, but this is the first month that I think we timed everything right - so I'm hopeful!  With my first (he's 4.5) it took nearly a year of serious trying/temping/charting to conceive and I remember how discouraged I felt.  I'm trying to be more relaxed and positive (haven't started temping yet - just charting my cycles, cm, reacquainting myself with my body) but I am so anxious/excited I can't stand it. AF is due in 5-6 days (my cycles fluctuate) so I'm watching for every pg symptom I had before - sore bbs, frequent peeing, & I've had two pregnancy dreams; and I've noticed that I'm not having my usual AF symptoms - grouchy, acne...so who knows?! Anyway...congrats to all the BFPs and here's hoping for patience for all of us still waiting :-)

I was wondering the same thing about my dreams, but they were both really vivid and funny actually... I've got two tests left (both digital which I don't like because when we were TTC our first I got a false positive on one) and I'm trying to convince myself to wait until Saturday to test...doubt I have the willpower.

Ok, along with some fatigue and headaches the past few days this morning I had some pretty localized cramps, right under my belly button on to my right just slightly. I've never had cramps like that, usually it's just a broad adominal cramp. So fingers crossed for implant cramps. I'm still a little sore from the cramp, and 6 days past when my period was going to start. I tested yesterday and a bfn, so I'm trying to hold out till sat to test.

I had those same pinchy like cramps on the right side of my right abdomen, near my belly button yesterday.  Now thinking I may have o'd a day later than I thought...still have my fingers crossed...not getting my usual AF symptoms that I normally have by now. But really...who the heck knows :-)

  Trying to stay calm. whistling.gif I'm considering this cycle as our successful cycle. I feel good, and I expect a BFP. 7DPO and starting to get test-y (as in, itching to test).

Ah! I'm going insane over here! Fatigue, those sharp cramps yesterday and few more this morning that weren't so severe but were in the same location, and now I'm spotting! I keep telling myself that pink is a good sign and I'm still good, but I'm SO worried it's AF! I want to test so badly, but I promised I'd wait till in the morning...

 

 

Edit to add:

What counts as spotting? It's still pink/brown, but it's a little more than I picture when I think spotting. Guess I'll just wait ans see if it stops... *sigh*

I'm definitely feeling an increasing urge to test. It's easy to find 7DPO pos tests on FF. Makes me think "why not?"

Rosie, what did you wind up doing?

I'd like to think this will be my last post here on this thread, because Im typing this so that I can hold off three more minutes before taking two more tests. Im going to take an Answer strip test and a FRER. As some of you know, I got a faint BFP on an Answer earlier today. Ive been holding my pee for FOUR hours because Id like to take another test tonight. Ive never used Answer before, and I know its stupid but part of me is so hesitant to trust a cheapie test. (so hesitant that Ive gone ahead and changed my siggy....). Anyway, Im off to pee in a cup and dip the test. Ill post the results (without pics because my camera sucks)

The faint line on the frer confirms it for me. The answer strip test (I took the answer stick test earlier) has no faint line at all, nothing showing anything close to a second line. But, with my last one frer was the only test I used and I got my BFP at 14 dpo, after not testing for 5 days in a row. So, I had gone from a BFN to a BFP with nothing in the middle. Im just not used to this whole very faint line business. But, havent usually tested this obsessively. For 10 DPO, I think a faint line is totally normal. I just want to send all you ladies good testing vibes!!! Good luck and maybe Ill see some of you in the DDC!

Congrats again AM! 

 

No testing for me yet. I woke up in a fog to pee this morning and stopped mid-stream, then decided nah, I don't need this morning's FMU, I'll wait. Silly me. Now I want that FMU back! 

 

I plan to hold out til Monday. DH won't be here tomorrow morning, and he wants me to test while he's around or int he house. 8DPO and counting...

I'm out this cycle. AF is here, light but def more than just spotting. I got a bfp, but then AF showed up, so does that mean my luteal phase is too short? I'll be temping this cycle, last cycle I didn't because we traveled so much.
