Trying to conceive

I am currently ttc baby number 2 and have had 5 cycles so far with no luck, if i come on this month then will be cycle 6!
Mainly my cycles have been 28 days, shortest 27, longest 30.
When i conceieved my DD i OV'd 4 days early and thought i was pretty similar this time around. Yet since having her my cycles have been lasting 6-8 days and i was having EWCM around CD8-10.
We now BD as soon as AF has stopped right up untill AF arrives again and i'm having no luck at all, its making me think am i even OV'ing!?
Judging on a 28 day cycle my 14 day OV would have been sunday just gone, but i was having EWCM last Thurs/Fri so assumed i was OV'ing then but on Tuesday just gone i had more EWCM for 1/2 days.
I'm a little confused about when i'm ov'ing. Weds i was having bad pains in mu tummy and on my right side near ovaries i would say. Not sure if this is a sign of OV or something else?
Since then i have been having mild cramping throughout day, every day and not sure why.
Is anyone else experiencing anything similar or know what it could be?
Next AF is due 17th June

WHat a nightmare. My cycles have been all over the place since having ds. Have you tried OPKs? YOu can get them cheap online - theres a website called homehealth that I used last time. maybe that might help??
If not - you could try speaking to your dr, I know they say a year but it could be worth atleast having a chat.
Hopefully that mild cramping is your little bean being implanted!!

I've been reading up on cm recently, and apparently ewcm 1-2days following intercourse can just be semen, not a sign of ovulation. Sounds gross i know, and made me a bit gutted coz now wondering if some i had wasn't ovulation after all .

Yes I am wondering TigerLily if the first lot of EWCM I had was semen. I am pretty confident that I am on 2dpo now - the pains I had 2 days ago just must have been ov pains. If I don't get my BFP this month I may just need to get me some OPKs lol. That's the only way we are going to know for sure!

Tigerlily we were in DIS together Hopefully we can be in another DI forum too!
I have actually thought before perhaps thats what was happening but wasnt sure if it could still leak out a few days after lol.
I'm thinking i'm about 8DPO today. Still having a lot of dizziness and feeling sicky on and off. Been having the crampy feeling for almost a week now and past 2 days been having an achey lower back.
Woke up this morning to a very achey back and lots of niggly pains in tummy but not quite like AF pains. Really trying not to get my hopes up but its so hard!
I'm rubbish at holding out to POAS so when do you ladies think would be a good time to test early with a FRER? I'm thinking maybe weds/thurs?

I thought I recognized your name! You started trying again soon then! We've only just started, impatient already though!
What is FRER btw? I was always testing early with number 1. When I got my BFP it was 3 days before AF was due, and I actually only tested coz it was New Year's Eve and I was about to go out for a drink, so it was a 'just in case' test. Although, looking back I had been feeling nauseous the week between xmas and New Year, and I was bursting out of my work's xmas do dress and bra which i'd bought specially just a couple of weeks before!
Fingers crossed for us all! I've no idea of my cycle as not had af yet and still breastfeeding, but trying to hold out to test at the end of the month, knowing me i will give in before that though!

First response test Says you can test up to 6 days before AF is due which i suppose means i could test from today but thinking it may be too early?
Achey back has worn off a little atm but feeling crampy! Hate all this waiting lol!
If AF turns up this month then will be on to cycle 6
