Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

Hi everyone, I’ve been off the pill since August 2017; had a miscarriage in March and have been TTC again since then.
My cycles are always pretty regular (around 32 days give or take). Last month my cycle was 35 days which is the longest it’s ever been.
This month I am currently on CD38, so nearly a week late based on my usual cycle. No AF, but also took a FRER with FMU today and got a BFN (also had BFN the last few days with FRER).
I’m not really holding out any hope for a BFP but just wondered if anyone else was in a similar situation at the moment (or has had similar before)?
I had some EWCM at the weekend so DTD just in case. I have been feeling a little nauseous and slightly sore boobs but I think it’s probably all in my head!
Anyone else experiencing this?

Hi busybee. I'm so glad to have read your post as I'm in the same boat!
I'm on cycle day number 43 and going nuts! No symtoms of pregnancy or period at all! I had a BFN 5 days ago but worried to test again as a negative result is rubbish to see :(.
Iv been off the pill for 3 months, 1st cycle was 28 days, second was 34 days and now 43 with no signs.
Frustrating isn't it, when you want it so bad xx x

Aargh I know jlisa, it’s so frustrating - just want to know one way or the other now - at CD43 you must be going mad.
I’ve heard it can take three months or so for your cycles to settle down after the pill so that might be the reason for you?
my cycles have been pretty regular up until this one so it’s so weird, I wish I knew the reason.
I know what you mean about not wanting to see another negative test - expensive and depressing!!!!!
ive had EWCM again today which just doesn’t make sense at all with this cycle.
Think I’ll go to the dr by the end of the week if no AF and still BFN. Not sure how I’ll last the week! Have you been able to distract yourself?

Hi ladies, are any of you taking pre-natal vitamins? X
18/06/2018 at 21:53
Hi Loz27, thanks for replying! I’m actually not taking them at the moment as I read from some other ladies on here that it can mess with your cycles - did you hear that too? x
18/06/2018 at 22:16
Yeah it can take a while to regulate, I'm just impatient! Haha. I hoped I'd be one of the lucky ones who fell pregnant on the first month.
Yeah that's odd if you are normally on time. I have my fingers crossed for you that this is your month.
My CM hasn't really changed. The only symtom i have is being very tired all day then insomnia at night, but work is very busy at the min so could just be that!
Iv got a first response for tomorrow morning, not getting my hopes up though! If it's a negative il wait another week and then go docs to see what's going on.
Keep me updated with how your getting on!
And Loz, yeah I use the pregnacare ones x x

Thanks Jlisa! I’ve got my fingers crossed for you too for your first response test tomorrow! Let us know how it goes.
I’m going to try and be strong and not test again until Friday but I just bought more FRER on amazon so we’ll see!!
tiredness can definitely be a symptom but it’s just so frustrating that so many early pregnancy symptoms are also symptoms of AF! I’m sitting here with unbelievably sore boobs right now but I don’t want to get my hopes up that it’s anything other than pre-menstrual as I’ll just be more disappointed if/when AF comes.

Thank you I will definetely let you know either way! If this month isn't my month then I'm going to try ovulation sticks next cycle to see what's going on in my cycle.
Fingers crossed for your test too! Please let us know :). Sore boobs is usually a good sign! Do they usually get sore when your due on? Mine are never sore, and if anything feel smaller today haha!
18/06/2018 at 22:46
They’re not usually sore at all when I’m due on so it’s very weird, but I’m worried that I just want to be preggo so much that my body is giving me phantom symptoms! This TTC business just messed with your head :D
I tried ovulation sticks but I was so rubbish at working them out I think they just got me more confused haha
i think lots of ladies on here get on well with them though xx
18/06/2018 at 22:47
That should be “messes” not “messed“ :D
19/06/2018 at 07:03
Hey yes I was taking them An my cycles were getting longer each month so I looked into them and found quite a few ppl had the same problem although a couple had no effect on their cycles,
it was so frustrating as I had pregnancy symptoms, I stopped taking them after being a week late then af showed 2 days later x
19/06/2018 at 08:05
Morning ladies. Well it's another bfn again this morning :( so feeling pretty rubbish. I'm going to book in at the doctor today.
Busybee yeah that is different then, sounds like a good sign :). I understand where your coming from with the phantom signs, it's very hard not to symtoms spot isn't it.
That's interestng Loz, maybe il stop taking them and see what happens xx
19/06/2018 at 08:13
What's also annoying is that I must have ovulated very late in which me and DH will have completely missed the fertile window :(
19/06/2018 at 08:28
Ahhh sorry to hear it’s anotheir BFN Jlisa!
Good idea to book in with the doctor.
I’ve not done a test today but I am beginning to think I must have ovulated really late too and we will have also missed the fertile window if that’s the case :(
19/06/2018 at 09:40
Iv got an appointment tomorrow morning, let's see what they say.
Your very strong to not test haha. I hope this is your month. How long have you been trying? Xx
19/06/2018 at 11:27
Ahhh good luck with the doctor tomorrow Jlisa, great that you can see someone so quickly.
we’ve been trying since August 2017, I think it took about six months for my cycles to properly settle after the pil. Then I had a miscarriage in March at 5 weeks. I’ve had two cycles since then which seemed normalish so no idea why this one is so weird. I hope this month is my month too but the BFNs are making me think that’s pretty unlikely. really going to try not to test until Friday.
Let us know how it goes at the doctor tomorrow!
19/06/2018 at 14:41
Thank you, il let you know. Yeah they are fantastic my doctors.
Ah bless you, since August is quite a while isn't it. Did you have similar symtoms when you were pregnant in March? I hope Friday comes round quickly for you and that its a BFP! Xx
19/06/2018 at 14:53
Weirdly I didn’t have any symptoms in March!
with that pregnancy I even had a light bleed when my period should have been, but I think now it might have been implantation. With that pregnancy I had a BFN at CD33, then a light bleed CD35, then BFP nearly two weeks later!!
19/06/2018 at 16:32
How bizzare! Life for us ladies is never easy is it. Are you going to test again? Xx
19/06/2018 at 16:38
Really going to try and hold out and not test until Friday. BFNs are just too depressing (and expensive)!
