How is everyone doing?
I'm just kinda waiting really. 12dpo/cd31. Last 6 cycles have been 28-33 so AF basically due. Temps have been slowly falling the last two days which suggests AF is coming. On the other hand I've had lots of strange spotting this month (5-8dpo and 10/11) and my boobs have been sore since about 4/5 dpo. I do sometimes getting spotting for a couple of days before AF but not that early or with a gap. Nor do I usually get sore boobs, cept for maybe a day or two. So basically I don't' know but temps are making me think it ain't my month.
Anyone else got any news? Vikster, how were your temps today?
21/11/2013 at 12:40
Got fingers crossed your temps recover and AF stays away.
Temp went up again this morning, but FF then decided to change my ov day to CD18, which makes me 11dpo today not 13dpo (and also means that it was 6 days after our last insem so not a hope in hell. Had a small amount of spotting this morning to expecting AF tomorrow now. This cycle has been really wierd.

argh - that is very frustrating that it changed the day like that.

Veecee - Still got fingers crossed for you, maybe your spotting was implantation?
Vikster - That is very annoying hope you are ok
AFM - I am sure AF will be here tomorrow or Saturday, slightly more spotting today. All very boring from me!

Veecee still hoping for a positive test for you x
Vikster, that's very annoying. Hope your next cycle sorts itself out.
Lulu, sort it didn't seem to be your month.
CD 13 for me. Negative opk on the cheap dip sticks, but a line on the fancier plastic one although not quite as dark as the control, so not sure. Watery cm which FF suggests is fertile anyway. Got OH to come home early again just in case ;-). Expecting a temp rise or ewcm or at least *something* tomorrow!! OH is whining that he's getting tired though LOL!! Bless him :-)

Veecee - hope AF stays away and sore boobs means something wonderful
Vistker - how annoying your day got changed!
Lulu - hope there's no AF for you
BF - good doing on your H - wear him out!
me - day 25 now and still no AF so starting to get hopeful. last negative test was 3 days ago tomorow, so packet says test again in 3 days. Want to fast forward until tomorrow morning so i can test as day 26 and deffo should have had AF by then!

Just popping my head in ladies
Sounds like most of you are at that crucial stage, and have some weird (and possibly hopeful?) symptoms, so I have everything crossed for you all.
My life is still as insane as ever, some days I feel like I'm getting there and other days it's all too much for me to cope with. I had my graduation today for my undergrad which was really great, and then afternoon tea with H and the family. We were so stuffed that we had to come home and have a nap, I'm still stuffed now, it was gorgeous! Off to Uni tomorrow for a mid-placement visit, and the file that I need to take with me doesn't exist yet, so it's a late night for me in a vain hope to cobble something together. I was hoping to see the new Hunger Games tonight but will need to leave it til tomorrow, anyone else a fan?
TTC wise I think I'm anywhere between 5-7dpo. Absolutely no time for symptom spotting, and tbh I'm so stressed that I'm constantly dizzy/sick/tired etc all cycle anyway, so I wouldn't be able to tell if there was any difference. I've packed away all my OPKs, thermometer, preg tests, etc. in the loft for a few monta as I'm just too busy to have an added stress in my life, hopefully the lack of focus works wonders. We've been fairly consistent with DTD anyway just by chance, and I had plenty EWCM and cervix signs last week, so confident that I am firmly in the 2ww and in with as good a chance as we have been any other cycle.
Hope I come back to an empty TTC board

I came on earlier this morning but didn't want to start a ttc board with a negative start.
Veecee: Sore boobs was the only symptom I remember from getting my bfp last time so fingers crossed for you
Vikster: That sounds so frustrating
Lulu: Hope that it's not what you think (says me in the same position) but if af arrives I hope it comes & goes quickly & as painfree as possible. Take care
BF: Enjoy the fun part - these men aren't good at stamina are they!
CJ: exciting stuff I assume you have a test ready for the morning!
Saff: Glad your graduation went well & you've had a good day (even if you're now burning the midnight oil) Fingers crossed this is a good cycle for you
AFM: CD28 (9dpo I think). I had a tiny amount of spotting last night & a speck this morning but nothing all day. This is what happened last month so I'm expecting more actual spotting tomorrow & then af to arrive on sunday when I'm hosting my family get together with 2 pregnant ladies! Oh well (although obviously not completely ruling anything out & not ordering more opk's until af arrives!)
Just looked on ff & it seems to think that my af won't arrive until Wed as that's 15 days after I ov (although I may have ov a day earlier) which would make my cycle 34 days long. So I'm guessing that's not good so I'd better start taking that vit B to lengthen my cycle & help stop this spotting. Am now off to google this...!

Hi Saff - nice to see you back and congrats on your graduation! I hope the stresses you are going through ease up!
Blackkat - of course a test is ready and resisted the urge to test tonight. Hope your family get together goes well and fingers crossed AF won't show!
21/11/2013 at 22:42
Fingers & toes crossed for you CJ, hope you manage to get some sleep tonight x
22/11/2013 at 01:16
Fingers crossed for you CJ, and BK I hope you're wrong and the spotting is actually a good sign this time...good luck! x
