Trying to conceive

5DPO for me, yesterday I kept getting fluttering bubbly type feelings and very weak cramps all day, I actually remember having those with my daughter very early on but again, it's most likely my imagination...or just gas lol.
I am going to try and not symptom spot from now on!! Work will keep me busy today and tomorrow and going out with OH tonight for nice meal
Happy Friday all!

Morning BM - good luck with not symptom spotting, and fx for a BFP in a week or so.
I am officially in the 2ww
Please remind me of this enthusiasm in a week when I am tearing my hair out
We have definitely DTD at the right times, so all I can do now is hope.
Early start for me so I'm off now, but will hopefully get back on later...hi to all who follow

Fingers crossed for u ladies & hope the 2ww not too painful!
Afm - CD 14, finally finished my run of nightshifts & off all weekend. Think i shud ov Sat or Sun

BM- I hope thise flutterings are a symptom!
MY- 2ww eeek! Lets hope it flies!
Cooper- Get dtd! lucky Mr cooper.
AFM- well MY, FF thinks I'm in the 2ww too. It put me as ovulating yesterday. I'm not 100% convinced as the opks have messed with my head this cycle, so i'm going to carry on dtd as much as possible just in case I'm having a weird long cycle. At least this way i won't really feel as if I'm in the 2ww I suppose. Let's see if I can avoid symptom spotting though!

BM - you will be driving yourself mad with symptom spotting, but its easily done. Good luck with keeping busy.
Saf - I will give you a virtual slap next week when you want to test! haa
Cooper - have fun this weekend dtd.
IMP - keep at it, as im not convinced with FF and predicited ov either, hhhmmmmm.
AFM - I got my cross-hairs finally woohoo. FF has given me an ov day as Tuesday making me 3dpo, but im still convinced it was Sunday/Monday but i just took my temps at the wrong time as they are open circles. If FF is correct then i really dont hold much hope this cycle as we insemmed two days before ov. Also, those CB dual hormone sticks gave me a static smiley on Saturday morning, which dissapeared on Monday morning so how could I have ov'd on Tuesday as it wouldnt have been a peak?

Good morning ladies,
Blessed - Good luck not symptom spotting, have a good night with your H tomorrow
Saffron - Good news the chart looks good, hope the 2ww flies by
Cooper - Have fun dtd lots!
Imp - Welcome to the 2ww! Hopefully it goes quick
Vikster - another 2wwer now! I'm not sure whether you should go with opk or chart, do I remember correctly it was a slow rise? maybe FF didn't confirm ov earlier without a stronger rise? Sorry its confusing for you, but you're still in with a chance, the sperms can live for a few days in you.
AFM, CD29 and nothing much to report, sensitive boobs yesterday which is normally a signal AF is a few days away. I think I ov'd at cd19 so that would mean I'm 10dpo today.
18/10/2013 at 10:15
Vik as Dolly said they can live for a good few days imside, especially if there was EWCM,
Dolly I hope AF stays away and the boobies are a good sign rather than an AF sign. FX for you.

Sorry I'm an interfering nosy mare but I wanted to say to Vik that there are two scenarios (I was temping and charting for what felt like forever!!) one is that ov can happen between 24-48 hours after you peak, secondly however, going by your OPKs, it sounds to me like you probably did ov when you think and that FF is perhaps being confused by your inaccurate temps. Remember that FF is simply a computer generated guess whereas you know your body! You'll know when you had EWCM and ov pains. Obviously you now can't know for sure so best thing is to try and survive the 2ww and not worry about what now can't be changed. It must be so tricky for you guys in terms of timing! Fingers crossed for you though! (And the rest of you in the 2ww)

Sweetpea, thanks for the info and the luck, we need it! haa.
Yeh its hard timing, and even more so when our donor is now in a relationship and is hardly available, but charting/CM does give me kind of an idea when to expect OV i suppose. Yeh i am a bit peeved as we could have got another donation in on Monday night if i knew i was going to ov Tuesday, but i really didnt think i would as CM had dried up and i only had it Fri/Sat. So annoying, but its only my first try so hopefully will be a pro next month. Whats done is done and all that jazz.
18/10/2013 at 11:42
A key indication of being post ov is when CM dries up! You are no longer fertile if you have no CM so it really does sound like you might have timed it correctly!

Happy Friday everyone!
Blessedmummy - Fingers crossed for you, have a lovely evening with you h tomorrow!
Saffron - Hope the 2ww doesn't drive you crazy and you get a good result!
Cooper - Good weekend in store for you ha ha!
Imp - I hope you can avoid symptom spotting, hopefully with not knowing 100% when you ov'd it will be easier.
Vikster - Hopefully you'll still be in with a chance.
Dolly - Hope this is your month, not long to find out now!
AFM cd18 so another 2ww but I don't think this is our month so I'm quite chilled about it, I think after reading some of your stories this week I've realised I do need to relax as it is still early in our ttc journey.
Quick question about ewcm though, I normally get it for one day does this mean I ov on that day or is 24 hours after? Sorry if that is a stupid question but I really can't remember!
Hope you all have a great weekend!
18/10/2013 at 15:27
wow - lots of waiting going on here. hope everyone manages to have a fun, symptom-spotting free weekend!
Lulu ewcm comes at or just before ovulation, so could be that day or the next. certainly means its time to dtd though :)
AFM, CD27. Not sure exactly but around 12-14dpo. going to test again tomorrow morning.
18/10/2013 at 16:45
Thanks veecee! Good luck testing hope it is good news! x
18/10/2013 at 20:03
I'll do personals & hope you all get to read them!
BM: Good luck trying not spot signs, it's a nightmare. I convinced myself I was feeling all sorts of things last month. Hope it's all good for you.
Saff: Welcome to the 2ww, hope it goes quickly. Looks like you've done everything you can so fingers crossed
Cooper: Looks like you're in for a good weekend! Have fun
Imp: I guess as long as you're dtd it doesn't matter if you're sure the exact day of ov
Vik: I'm no expert but I imagine 2 days should be fine as I read that arrive & swim around for up to 3 days waiting for the egg (I've read so much recently & have a bad memory so don't quote me!)
DollyP: Hope your wait isn't too much longer
Lulu: Can I have some of your chilledness?! I have ewcm for a few days before (taking lots of supplements to help achieve this) but once it goes I think that's ov over
Veecee: Fingers crossed it's good news for you tomorrow
AFM: I'm at 7dpo, trying hard not to symptom spot but every time I think I feel something that could be it I remind myself what else it could be, eg a little dizzy as I haven't drunk enough! 1 week to go, hope it goes quickly (wish the same for all of you currently on the 2ww) x
