Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

hi ladies im desperate for some advice if that’s ok.
so I ovulated cd12 i know because i tested with a cb digi also ovulation test strips and both confirmed. Dtd cd11-13.
at 6dpo started cramping it was mild and thought ok will start af early this month. So I continued to have mild cramping to 9dpo. Remember feeling a very sharp pang on the right side of the uterus then suddenly the cramps slowly disappeared, didn’t really feel nothing all day other than loss of apitite but I think that’s to do with the weather I tend to get like this during the hot weather. Moving on the next day at 10dpo I started feeling tightness in the uterus and sore, got somewhat better at 11dpo (currently) with some mild abdomen cramps. Boobs feel bruised however not a lot, right breast nipple area on and off throbbing Mild pain. Did have a whiff of smell that over took me like twice but not since. Did test with a cheap hcg strip don’t see nothing I’m confused! Why am I feeling tightness in my uterus and some soreness? has anyone had this before? Also When should I test or should I just hold out till af due date?

I'd try and hold out until your period is due. The closer you are to your period being due the more accurate the results, even with sensitive tests. Its really hard to know what our bodies are doing sometimes...its a shame there isnt a clear definite wag of knowing as every month i've felt different stuff that convinces you this is the month. Hopefully its good signs for you

Thank you for writing back @stilltrying.
Yeah I suppose that’s the only thing I can do because it’s either test early and get a bfn and still be hopeful and suddenly AF arrive which is a double disappointment or just wait it out however and deal with it either way it goes. Just hate going through this and it’s my 2nd month ttc! It’s torture if I have to go through this every month. 😪
what dpo are you at @stilltrying? i hope you get your bfp! 🤞🏽
24/06/2018 at 22:01
I think i am about 9 dpo but could be as little 5 as i ovulate usually between day 15 (which gives me a 27 day cycle) and day 19 (which gives me a 31 day cycle) ... Pretty certain it was day 15 this time so shortee cycle .This is our 17th cycle so i never expect it to happen now to be honest but will wait and see.
Good luck. Hope your journey is a lot shorter than mine x

I've had similar symptoms so far this month. I'm not certain when I ovulated, or even if we were lucky enough to have dtd around the time, but, I'm having way too many weird symptoms.
For the last 4 days I've had sore bbs, AF isn't due until 29th, it's very unusual for my bbs to be sore so soon!
Ive had weird bubbles, tightenings and flutters. Cramps that I can't explain by any other means. I've had major heartburn for days. Dizzy spells... To the point where I (embarrassingly enough) passed out at a Stone Sour gig last week - major blush -
It's just not like me at all. I'm constantly tired, too.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who seems to be feeling all sorts of weird body stuff.
I'm kinda trying to hold out on poas til my af is due, but, it's just too tempting to get an early hint on the news!
I definitely hope to see some bfps coming, and I hope to get one myself :)
Sorry to randomly crash a post without having introduced myself! Just felt I needed to reply :) offer support etc.

@stilltrying awww I really do pray you get a bfp this time! Have you Had blood tests done to check your hormone level? To make sure your actually ovulating. I think it’s a 21 day blood test. it’s to check if you’ve ovulated. Get both you and your partner tested to make sure everything is ok. All the best and keep us updated. X
your symptoms sounds way more promising! I’m beginning to think it’s all in my head although I know it’s not 🤔😞
my uterus feels tender and nipples are painful that’s about it now. I did feel crampy before and had milky whitish discharge before which I think it means Period is on its way. I just don’t trust these symptoms. I’m now 12dpo and think af will get me by tonight! But I rather be on if im not going to be pregnant and get it over and done with ready for the next cycle! I have a good feeling about your stmptoms! wishing you ladies all the best!
25/06/2018 at 16:36
See I've had the milky white discharge for about a week too! If not slightly longer. But the test I took today (4 days til AF) gave me a bfn (booooo)
So, unless I'm still testing too early - despite weird a$$ symptoms - I'm imagining it all! Still it felt pretty realistic when I crashed at the gig lmao.
25/06/2018 at 21:35
@spyrthebadger i do feel it’ll be a bfp for you but the same time I don’t trust these symptoms! Today woke up with cramps was sure af was coming any second, but nothing! kept checking to see if af arrived. Wore a pantiliner in case. Started feeling wet and checked it was milky white discharge. I craved for tea and straight after I finished it I vomited...attempted to make DH breakfast and couldn’t take the smell and vomited much more I had to walk away from his breakfast and my DH I couldn’t stand the sight of it. I had on and off cramps throughout the day, was feeling depressed thinking af coming! Kept checking throughout the day and each time checking dreaded it but still nothing. a while later noticed egg white stringy mucus which was stuck on my vaj non on the pantiliner and felt throbbing on and off pain on right boob for a few seconds. Now the cramps and right boob pain have subsided. Feel pulling sensation when I lean forward also gagging! I swear if this isnt pregnancy symptoms and I’m going through this shitty torture for no reason I would be so pissed! I feel like I’m on edge with the cramps though. 😞😪
25/06/2018 at 23:04
So I tested with a cheap hcg pregnancy strip and it’s a bfn. Probably a tiny line there but I shouldn’t have to squint to see it so I take it as a bfn! I started taking conception pills well been taking them on and off and back on again 4 days ago and beginning to think it’s the conception pills giving me stupid pregnancy symptoms as side effects. The cramps I feel on and off can’t be implantation cramps because if it is what was the cramps I got during 6 to 9dpo? I think it’s slowly making its way out in a very very cruel torturous way! Have to be realistic about it I suppose. Just want this week over and done with now!
25/06/2018 at 23:23
Hey abby, I sure hope it is an eventual bfp for us both! It definitely sounds like you've got something going on!
My vomiting was a one day event, but I have felt nauseous every other day and seem to be craving sweet foods. I'm up to 3 sugars in my tea, because I can't stand to drink it with less. I'm all about eggs and beans too! Not together!! Oh has had to find a different cologne as his current one stinks! But I used to love it he'd put it on and I'd be all up in his business just to get a whiff :D
I really just can't help thinking with only 4 days to go til AF, and also feeling random wetness, I'm out the game. Its coming. AF is gonna visit on that one day where I think sod it and don't wear a panty liner and head to work a 12hr shift... :/ that'll be interesting...
I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you, lovely. I really hope we both get some fantastic fat pink/blue lines!
26/06/2018 at 00:01
spyrothebadger, I couldn’t take it and tested with frer and got a bfn. I know im out of the game this month! Just think it’s the pregnacare giving me false symptoms. I do hope but know it’s too good to be true. Your one deffo sounds promising! Fingers crossed for you! I’m due to start on the 28th but have a feeling af coming early this month! i hope you get a bfp!! Wouldn’t like the thought of no one getting it! All the best Hun. X
26/06/2018 at 07:41
Thanks hun, I'm sorry to hear the FRER gave you a BFN.
I have wondered myself if it's the pregnacare type thing I'm taking that's causing my weird symptoms. Is that really possible?
Surely they can't cause sore bbs and other stuff your body controls with hormones? What are those things full of? :/
I might just swap to plain old folic acid!
I'm trying to resist the urge to test again this morning. It's too close to yesterday's to see a huge difference. I've only got 25s left no early ones, and I think it'd be just a bit pointless.
3 days til AF, still getting weird milky discharge - sigh -
C'mon AF visit already then I can start again lol
26/06/2018 at 15:16
Spyrothebadger, I actually read that pregnacare hasn’t reported any side affects as It’s not suppose to. I don’t know anymore just don’t care now...I noticed a vvvfaint line on the frer but not sure what it is as it’s happend to me last month. Thought I was pregnant but the line wasn’t getting darker and af came on the 14th dpo. just very bloated now and feel gas pain or is it cramps? I don’t know I don’t trust these symptoms at all! gosh I really hope your pregz! will Be praying for your bfp! Hope your having a better day than I am I feel so shit.
26/06/2018 at 15:33
Af has arrived 😭
26/06/2018 at 16:28
Spyrothebadge, it’s just you now sweetheart! I’m here not going to disappear just because this isn’t my month. I’m routing for you! I really hope you get a bfp. I had all the clear symptoms can you believe it?! It’s so cruel how it plays with you! I’m actually happy and excited for the the next tww I know now to to read too into every little symptoms. I’m glad I started a day early I don’t like time wasters! Anyway how are you feeling today?
Stilltrying, any updates? Hope your well love and I’m routing for you too I’m here for you also. X
26/06/2018 at 18:24
Hey abby, still no af, which isn't a surprise, I'm never early. Even when I want to be.
I've been feeling pretty pappy today too, so I had a little me day, did my hair, make up etc made myself feel pretty :)
I feel right pampered, but, this hot weather has got me melting so I'm pretty sure I looked a state within 30mins of doing my face!
Im sorry you're out the runnings lovely, but as you say at least you're more prepared for next month's tww.
I reckon that's what's gotten to me the most yknow? The weird symptoms and still getting bfn. I wasn't prepared for that to be a thing so couldn't make any sense of it. I'll know for next month.
Speaking of weird symptoms just had an odd popping sensation lower left abdomen...
I was told that's an ovulation thing? There's no way thats happening now!! See what I mean about everything not making any sense? I'm done trying to figure my body out. I'll sit and relax for 3 days, wait for AF and start again.
Don't hold your breath for a bfp announcement from little old moi. It's pretty damn unlikely, I've come to peace with that.
26/06/2018 at 18:30
Sorry the witch got you Abby. Here's to tge next cycle for you
Pretty certain she will get me too on thursday when i expect her.
Don't really feel any different to normal. Have tried not to think about it too much this month (but at the same time i was absolutely convinced at one point we had done it - no reason to think it, it just came into my head)
Spyro seems we are both due on Thursday. Will keep my fingers crossed for you.
26/06/2018 at 18:33
Spyro we cross posted... I had that weird popping feeling about three cycles ago. Was definitely too late for ovulation though. No idea if it was the start of something that never happened though. Hope its a good sign for you
26/06/2018 at 19:50
Thursday or Friday it'll happen for me. Late Thursday night or early Friday morning.
I seem to alternate each cycle, if I go to bed not having come on guaranteed I am by morning. Then the next cycle I'll be on by bedtime. Regular. As. Clockwork. 26 and "half" days pretty much haha.
The popping sensation went away, but it definitely won't have been ovulation.
Sorry again to all those ladies that are out. I'm sure we'll all be back to posting faint lines and symptoms next month together!
Here's hoping for bfps next month.
26/06/2018 at 20:05
Spyrothebadger, I think getting dolled up is exactly what you need to take your mind off tww and just go out and have a blast! Yeah I tend to use water based foundation during the hot weather, a Little powder bronzer and dark Matt lipstick! i think dark lipstick takes away the attention of the face so even if your flaws show or the make up melts the lipstick just makes it look good no matter what!
well I had a little spec of blood when I wiped but nothing since...I’m not going to overthink! I know af is making her way slowly! Last month I spotted for two days and thought maybe implantation but I’d be stupid to make the same mistake again, thinking all sorts of crap!
Tell me about it! I only started getting these weird symptoms from last month which was the 1st month ttc and again this month! Next month I won’t bother thinking anything I just know it’s my body playing tricks on me. I’d be pregnant when I least expect it so basically I need to stop overthinking every little symptom.
Never heard of popping sensation could it be trapped air? It could be implantation but who knows?
other than my experience i do hope what your feeling is real! 🤞🏽X
