Temp still up but no cross hairs yet. Thinking I'm 3pdo so even longer to wait arrrgghh. Nothing else to report really. Anyone testing soon?
17/10/2013 at 08:10
Hey Vik, the 2ww aolways feels like forever. Grrr
I thought i'd pop back in today as you were all really helpful yesterday!
I had the closest thing I've seen to a positive opk yesterday so unless todays is positive I'm going to assume i ov'd yesterday I think. It means I am on for a longer cycle but probably only 33 days still, so not too bad in comparison to some. Will still carry on dtd as much as possible, just in case.

Vikster - sorry that ur going to have longer to wait
Imp - yay for positive opk. I only used them last cycle had significant ov pains for nearly 3 days but yet my opk test line was never darker than the control line. I'll use them this cycle to see if i get a darker line but if not i'll just go with my body rather than ic opks
Afm - CD 13, gearing up for a weekend of BD-ing ;)

good luck with the wait Vikster - not fun at all
Imp - do your cycles tend to vary much?
AFM cd26 and another negative IC HPT this morning.

Cooper I have been getting ov pains too, so I'm thinking ov must be imminent/happening now. Good luck with all the dtd ( I can't bring myself to use bd!)
Veecee- My last 2 cycles have been 28/29 days. Pre mc I was always between 29-31 days.
Sorry about the bfn, it could still be too early.

Dtd thats what i meant to say but cudnt think of it - darn nightshift brain!!
Veecee - sorry it was a neg

Vikster - 2WW is a drag! Hope it flies by for you!
Imp - woo hoo for positive opk!
Cooper - Have fun ;)
Veecee - sorry for bfn...May still be too early though! :)
AFM - I'm going to say 4DPO - and the symptom spotting has begun lol I was starving yesterday couldn't stop eating which is weird cos I usually have a small appetite particularly when I'm stressed which I am with my job at the moment, I randomly woke up last night, wide awake at 3am and needed to pee, again very weird cos I usually have the worlds strongest bladder! Also had a few af type cramps and a fluttering type feeling this morning briefly but most likely all of those are in my head!!
Enjoy the day all!

Wow! Aren't we a bunch of early risers! I'm still in bed and there's about ten comments already, it's lovely to see the thread so chatty
Vikster - really hope the 2ww flies in for you, and fx for a positive outcome at the end
Imp - in future I would definitely try the IC OPKs a bit later, as we were discussing yesterday. I'm sure you've got all bases covered though, you know I have everything crossed for you.
Cooper - ha! Enjoy your weekend
VC - really sorry, hope it was just too early. Do you know how many DPO you are?
BM - oh goodness, you are kicking off te symptom spotting early, eh? Really hope the next ten days fly in for you!
AFM - CD14, and I either OV'd in the early hours or I will OV today. I had bad cramps before bed, but I can't always differentiate between OV cramps and my IBS, so will DTD again later today just in case. Positive IC OPK last night with a RIDICULOUS amount if EWCM (sorry if TMI) and a static CBD OPK this morning, without ever having a high, just straight to peak. I'll try to flash my chart, but not sure if it will work.
Off to Uni soon, so hi to all who follow

Glad you got your static smiley Saff, otherwise I dread to think what you'd have done with the cb monitor! Haha! I thought it went static when you were about to Ov? ( I know morning about opks etc!) so does that mean you'll Ov today or you have ov'd?
17/10/2013 at 09:53
Saffron - LOL I know right! It's the only thing getting me through!
17/10/2013 at 10:04
Normally I would think I would OV today, but I've dried up and had bad cramps through the night. We will DTD anyway to be sure, and then my temp will confirm in a few days.
17/10/2013 at 10:10
Vikster - I think we are around the same, hope the 2ww goes quickly!
Imp - Good news on the opk!
Cooper - great weekend in store for you ha ha!
Veecee - sorry for the negative
BlessedMummy - Ha ha, there are a few of us around the same time so we'll have to try and keep each other sane!
Saffron - Sounds good fingers crossed for you!
AFM - CD16 not sure when I ov'd but I'm guessing 3 or 4 dpo so another one in the 2ww! I'm not symptom spotting though as I'm not convinced we have done enough but there is always hope!
17/10/2013 at 10:13
Vikster - Really hope you get those cross hairs soon.
Imp - Good news on the positive opk and ov pains all good signs.
Cooper - It's always good when ov falls over the weekend, lots of lie ins!
Veecee - Sorry about the negative
Blessed - Hope you manage to stay calm and don't go into overdrive with the symptom spotting!
Saffron - Wow sounds like you have some very definite ov signs, looking positive!
AFM, CD28 and nothing much to report, just waiting!! AF could arrive any day from tomorrow. I had a dream last night I got a BFP which shows I was thinking about it yesterday, in my dream I tested on an FR and two CB digitals all positive, oh how I wish that was real life!! I feel like now I've dreamt that it won't happen and AF will arrive.

Vikster: Hope the 2ww goes quickly, try keeping yourself busy
Cooper: Enjoy your weekend ;-)
Imp: Sorry to hear the opk's are working for you but it sounds like you know your cycles fairly well, hope you've done enough this cycle
veecee: Hope you're just testing too soon
Blessed: It's so hard not to symptom spot, good luck this cycle
Saff: Not sure about charts but hope you caught your ovulation, only time will tell
AFM: I'm now 6dpo & I'm managing not to symptom spot (maybe because there aren't any!!). It's funny, last month I was convinced I was pregnant with all the symptoms (just symptoms of a cold) whereas now I'm sure it'll take us a few more cycles, which I'm ok about now. I really wanted a summer baby but I've managed to tell myself that it doesn't matter what month a baby is born, it's more important that they're healthy. I found out yesterday that 1 of my best friends is pregnant with her 2nd. I can't help it, I'm very jealous & that was my 1st thought. It's so silly as I purposely didn't start trying a few months ago so I wouldn't have a baby due on my birthday (her birthday is 2 weeks before mine in April & she's due the day before her birthday) so there's no way I could've been pregnant then but it still seems so far away. & I know they're not 1 of those couples that have fallen easily (she has POCS & they lost a baby before a 1st scan) so I'm happy for them but I just REALLY want to be pregnant! Sorry, didn't mean for it to turn into a moan. Thanks for letting me vent.

Hi Ladies. Just want to wish you all good luck and I hope you get your BFP's soon! I I'm starting to enjoy Mum Drum a bit more now I don't feel out of place anymore, think that's down to coming to terms with my own issues and I'm happy in my own self, so I plan on being more of a permanent fixture :)
17/10/2013 at 11:18
Claire Lou - Lovely to see you here, and it's very nice to hear you are in a happy place!
Blackkat - Well done on the not symptom spotting. I think that feeling jealous at your friends news is normal, most of us TTCers seem to feel the same way at this kind of news.

Hey, I'm back...boring lecture
Lulu - hope the 2ww flies in for you
Dolly - I really hope that your dreams come through
BK - it's normal to feel like 'why isn't it me', but you know that you are happy for them, and that your time will come...that's what matters
CL - lovely to have you here, and thank you for hoping for us all, we are just as hopeful for you
