I have 777Star. I usually notice it anywhere between CD3-5. I don't actually think I'm ovulating, but the sensation is very similar.

Married to my high school sweetheart. We have four awesome kids.

Hey all, I'm new, too. This is our second month actively TTC, this month being the only month I've ovulated in the two (at least according to the ovulation strips). It appears as though today was the O day, so we've been doing plenty of BDing, now for the wait! Good luck to all of you, and congrats to the BFP's and hugs for those who received the BFN's this month!

I'm so trying not to obsess about every twinge I feel! Today is dpo 5 and I'm so anxious to be able to POS! We just started trying for a baby. This will be my third and my partner's first. It has been over 6 years since I got pregnant with my last baby, so this all feels so new (not to mention that I'm actually in love with this man!! Wasn't like this with my ex).

What tips do you all have to keep me sane during this TWW?

I've had twinges of cramping, nausea, and bloating... but maybe it's in my head, or something totally unrelated: like something I ate?

Hi mamas! Still lurking and cheering you all on smile.gif

I had my first official visit with my MW and an official ultrasound because I was measuring big. Baby bean is perfect (and yes, just one bean) and measuring about a week ahead. I'm not surprised as I know I implanted early, BFP at 8 dpo. So here's baby's first pic. Fx for all of you. I am sending lots of good vibes to Chourd, Oxford and Livnkadesmom who spent a great deal of time with me here during many TWWs! Big hugs mamas...

Congrats Sparkle!! Praying all goes well smile.gif praying for the rest ttc.

I'm hoping yesterday was my O day, since this morning I tested positive for LH (friday morning and evening was positive, yesterday morning was SUPER strong positive, and yesterday evening was a negative). Anyone notice that the morning LH tests turn out false positives? Also, do you all think that thurs morning and evening, plus Saturday morning and evening is enough? I'm afraid I'm wearing my DH out. Sorry for the questions, this is hopefully baby #1 for us!

Hello chuord, yes I'm still here. 7dpo is looking good. Have you got any symptoms?

Over here. AF has packed her bags so I am CD6. My LP was showing quite a variation so I got some help on my chart and have overrides the O date to make my chartsore regular. It does mean I'm less sure when I will O this month though. I might try OPK. Any recommendations? I always seem to get a negative!! Despite temp shift and CM pattern.
DH has greed to come to the doctor with me as we have been TTC for 6 months now. Feeling a bit nervous about that, but hopefully the doc can put my mind at rest and I may relax a bit then. I'm determined not to get so stressed this month, please remind me of that in a couple of weeks!! ;-)

Baby dust to all and welcome to our new members :-)

Oxford, what OPKs have you used? I used a combo of Wondfo's and Clearblue to pinpoint O. My method was to use the Wondfo's in the week or so leading up to when I expected to O (this way if it came early, I wouldn't miss it), and then to use both Wondfo and CB on the days when the Wondfo was starting to darken. And then to be even more sure of when I O'd, I would test twice a day- morning and night on the days when I knew O was imminent.. it sounds like overkill haha, but hey, it worked for me! :) Good luck!!!

Oxford - I'm in Australia lol, so different brands here... Most people I've seen on here have had success with the combo Dahlia😄 used. I think (correct me if wrong dahlia) the idea is to use the cheapies to get close and then the good one on the one or two days you expect a + good luck with it! I've used Internet cheapies and had a hit and a miss - the miss was this month and I got three days of a second line just not stronger than the control... Re symptoms, nothing really a bit of not cramping but sensitivity today but maybe AF is due lol... We will see... Scjp - that's my issue with cramping, I get it either way, same as spotting... Do you?

Chuord, that's correct :) I liked it because the wondfos are so cheap, that you don't feel like you're wasting money every time you get a negative OPK, since the CB's are so pricey. That way you only use the expensive ones for a few days!

going to try those clear blue O tests this month to make sure I wasn't completely off with our timing because I don't see how on earth we didn't have any luck this month!

fingers crossed for all, new and old!

So, AF is due this coming Thursday. I've been cramping all last week and still this week. Honestly, I cramp a week straight before AF or longer so I'm kind if thinking that AF will be back once again. Has anyone felt the normal PMS symptoms before AF would be due but were in fact pregnant? I'm just clinging onto the last bit of hope :/
