We are trying to conceive for the last 3 month. So I did spot/light bleeding the 10,11 of this month (to me didn't look like a real period or the way Im used to see it). my periods are 3-4 days then I spott for a day or 2. My period was supposed to show up on the 15, never came. So if I count the light bleeding I had on the 10/11 as my early period today I should be ovulating. Im really confused,stress my body is playing tricks on my one day are sore breast, others Im really tired, I have weird cramps, I did a test and was BFN. Im waiting for next week to do a blood test and really find out.

Hi Alfie......I have been ttc since June and over those months I have used OPK's to track ovulation but as of this month I wanted a more relaxed approach to ttc so I haven't used any but going on CM and cramping, time I ov'd last month etc I believe I am also ovulating around now I am CD20 today and last month I got a positive OPK on CD19.
How long have you been ttc and how are you tracking ovulation?
24/11/2013 at 17:11
hi ladies. this is first proper month ttc no 2, though we've taking risks for a while. I used cbfm last time, and it taught me when I ovulate, get a familiar pain in my side over about 36 hours, and ewcm. after having long irregular cycles having a baby made me much more regular too. normally 27-29 days but ov early this month cd 11.
yud sorry things are tough for you. do you normally notice ovulation symptoms?

On october I did I had cramps on left side lower abdomen and the day I was ovulating I did spot, I read that some women get it, so I was happy to really feel ovulation time, that was the 30/ 10. After that I start counting as DPO but on the 10DPO I got what kind of look like period but only 2 days and was gone. So I really dont know then got a ngative test. But Ill get test on monday lets see how thats go. Good luck Girls Ill keep you post it, Have a good weekend!!

Im sorry PollyDoll, I hope we can make it this time . Im about to start one more time in 2ww, stressful weeks. We havent been trying for so long compare to other people. I thought it will be easier to conceive.Only Gods know how long its gonna be. Have a nice week girls
25/11/2013 at 10:40
I am now in 2ww for baby number 3!
25/11/2013 at 10:44
oh pollydoll. so sorry to hear about your loss you must have very mixed emotions. I hope this is your month. yud will this be your first baby? I sympathise, the month I caught with lo my cycle was longer than 6 weeks so cbfm couldn't pick up ovulation. I just had lots of lows, lots of highs then nothing.resolved just to wait for af after 2more weeks, feeling miserable, I just had a bit of a hunch and peed on an opk - smiley face! goodness knows how I knew as I didn't have ewcm or pain like I have now to tell me. i remember getting the bfn and coming on every cycle and knowing i had X amount of weeks to wait for ovulation, even months. so frustrating.for the first time in my life i have a 28 day ish cycle so feel at least the next chance is never too far away.
i hope your body gives you a few more clues soon. 3 months isn't too long though hun, im sure we will all have bfps before long x
25/11/2013 at 23:01
Yes this will be my first baby, I know its not that long, but feels like that :/ LOL. Just need to work on my patience and stress less.My cycles before we start TTC they were really punctual, 3-4 days, maybe 1 day before and after my period spotting. But now is like before my period spots for like 3 days then nothing happens; then a day or 2 after get my period for only 2 days, it feels weird, not me. Now Im waiting on my blood test results finger cross lets see.
Have nice afternoon

well now dpo2 and already thinking about being pregnant, due date, when both scans will be, how we can manage childcare and finances if lo is born in august, and whether we'll have to tell people at xmas to explain not drinking or whether we can ride it out longer...HONESTLY!! I will never make it past dpo9 or 10 to test. Im hopeless.
Would really like to test with oh this time as last time I found out alone, think it would be nice. might make me wait a bit longer too, lol!
Ria how far into 2ww are you? good luck ladies keep in touch x
27/11/2013 at 03:42
Alfie you are way ahead hey thats good, my concern is that I live so far from my family that they will complain or want us to move back home so Im worry about how to explain them we are not coming back, it will be their first baby in the family so I get sad sometimes. I guess thats why Im not thinking so much about telling them mix emotions. But I cant wait see myself with a belly OMG it will be so beautiful. I cant wait for that day, Good evening girls.

Hi ladies.....well I am CD23 today....not really sure when I ovulated as not done any tests or anything this month...just going off the app on my phone and going off last month where I ovulated CD19....we have done plenty of BD'ing also but little confused as yesterday CD22 in the morning I went to the toilet and there was some red blood there when I wiped. I obviously thought AF was arriving very early (as my last cycle was 33 days long). I then put a pantyliner on to keep an eye on things and there was just a tiny bit of brown discharge after and then nothing after at all after dinner time and nothing since....could this be implantation at CD22? I honestly think it's too early to won't get my hopes up but just very strange xx

No not tested yet as I'm not expecting af till 7th December....my cycles have been all over the place for the last 6 months (as in over 40 days long). I have been taking Agnus Castus which shortened the length of af last month so it could have shortened it even more this month but I will wait till 6th December to test (only testing then because I am on a works night out and wouldn't want to drink if positive). xx

I had test BFN, I was counting that the bleeding that I had this month the 10, and 11 wasnt my period. But I guess it was AF. So if I did ovulate this month Im on my 2dpo crossing my finguers this time and hoping for my BFP.
Baby dust for all of you, have a good weekend
01/12/2013 at 21:03
hi yud, sorry it was BFN and it's set you back, but at least theres still some hope!angwass im due AF 8.12.13, so a day after you. got 2 FR tests in ready, trying to be strong. when are you planning to test? ive not had many symptoms of note (dpo7) las tmonth i had spotting right from dpo7 or 8 ish which turned into AF (getting my hopes up about implantation at the start). so dreading that starting. in the past ive had every symptom under the sun (implantation spotting,sore boobs, weird cramps) and not been pregnant, when I was pg I felt nothing so not reading too much into that. good luck ladies, keep in touch x
02/12/2013 at 08:11
I shall be testing Friday as I am out on works Christmas Do so only testing then so I know whether to drink or not
I haven't a clue where I am in my cycle to be honest as I have done absolutely nothing to track ovulation or anything this month. I had the spotting CD22 (last tues) and nothing since. I have noticed blue veins in my breasts which I have never noticed before and I have had what I would class as ovulation type pains (totally different to af cramps) but that's about it. I am never hopeful to be honest so will just see what the test says on Friday if af doesn't show before xx
02/12/2013 at 14:55
oh fingers crossed for good news on Friday angwass, I stupidly tested today dpo 8 in the middle of the day - BFN. Even on a good test like FR though I think it would be unlikely to show this early. hoping so anyway
I sympathise with your long cycles. last time I conceived 3rd cycle but it took over 5 months to ovulate 3 times and never knew when it would happen.
everyone in my life seems to get pg straight away - I don't know how people manage it, it seems such a lottery!
