Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
05/06/2016 at 15:13
My fiance and I have been trying to conceive for 7 months now. This last month I tracked my ovulation and I thought 100% we would get pregnant. I had cramps and back pain from the day I ovulated up until today. This morning I got my period (I think at least) and it came 3 days early. What do you all think is going on? I don't understand why I have pain from ovulation until my next period.

Has anyone used the clearblue digital ovulation tests? I done one an hour and a half ago and had smiley face, done one just now and only have a circle!!

HI! Iv been TTC for 7 months too Melissa after copper iud removal, no success as of yet.. what ovulation tests where you using? I tried them for a couple months and couldn't get the hang of it! Could possibly be implantation bleeding??

Apparently the clear blue digital are not accurate the best ones are the test strips which show a darker line than the other line.

I'm hoping it's implantation bleeding but I don't know :/ It's light and it's red/brownish i'll see how it is tomorrow. I use the clear blue ovulation tests. They're the easiest to read for me. Once I see a smiley face I know I will ovulate 12-36 hrs from then. I also get a lot of cramping in my right side within that timeframe and I think that's when my egg releases

Hi ladies I hope you don't mean me joining in. Myself and bubble are now on month 13 trying to conceive baby number 1. I did get pregnant back in Jan but sadly miscarried. Jan, when I got pregnant I started using the clear blue ovulation tests and panicked as I never got my static smily face. I however got pregnant that month so I knows they were wrong. I use the cheap stripes and find them far better.
im getting so frustrated at this stage but at least with the MC I know I can get pregnant. Unfortunately it just seems to be a longer waiting game for some of us. Good luck to u all this month x

Hey EmmaT2 I'm also ttc baby #1 I'm so sorry to hear about your misscarriage, life can be so cruel! I used the cheap strip ovulation tests for a couple of months but had the same result every day both lines as dark as each other! So I gave up with them rather than stressing myself iut even more! If only you were fertile every single day to make this experience a little less frustrating:/ it's a painful waiting game! I hope you get that BFP very soon and lots of baby dust! :D x

Hi Scottishsun I totally agree lol every day would be easier. I think the more u read these forums the best advice we can give is that everyone is different and everyone's body works different. get to know your own cycles and changes and work with that.
thank you, hopefully we won't have to wait much longer. I was due to ovulate fri sat past. Did wed, thurs, fri and sun so hopefully I have it all covered. Have u been ttc for long? X
06/06/2016 at 11:29
It totally would be!! Lol, I'm on that ovia and the group chats are amazing so many supportive girls on therequest think that's what's kept me sane while ttc! Yeah definitely I only made this yesterday to find out more information and what not! My cycles are everywhere I don't know if I'm coming or going haha, fingers crossed for you!! Try not to stress to much in the 2ww! We are coming into our 7th month after copper iud removal but seems to be getting harder as the months go by! Why is such a natural thing so hard to accomplish? X
06/06/2016 at 11:45
I know and we spent so many years trying not to get pregnant, little did we know it wasn't that easy lol I'm 33 so really wanting to get started as I would love 3 or even 4 kids x
06/06/2016 at 13:05
Tell me about it! We decided after a year to start trying so made sure until then there was no possibilities as we still lived with his parents we've came far since then to start our family! I'd love 3 kids! Slightly hoping for twins 😄 do you want your children all to be round the same age?x
06/06/2016 at 13:09
I would love twins too. Yeah I think because of my age we would love to go one after the other so long as it is works out and it happens. You never know u could get a nightmare of a baby and number 2 would be last thing u think of for a year or 2 lol We will just have to wait and see what's meant for us x
06/06/2016 at 13:13
Would be great! Both of my God sons have put both of my friends off having any more kids but I think they'll cave in soon and have more! We never know the time will come for us to find out 😄 your right! I can't wait I'm to impatient for this waiting around haha x
06/06/2016 at 13:15
It's terrible and to think when we eventually fall pregnant we have to wait 9 whole months after that lol. Where abouts are you on your cycle now? I'm day 16 of a normal 28/29 day cycle x
06/06/2016 at 13:17
But at least when that time comes well be glad we've finally done it! Haha, right now I'm on cd25 mines ranges from 28-40 days since I got my coil out but we've just been on holiday for 2 weeks so I never tracked my ovulation 😢 so I think I'm out this month, do you ovulate on cd14/15? Hope this is your month!! X
06/06/2016 at 14:16
yeah I think so. I got my positive ovulation test Thursday so think Friday or Saturday. Dtd wed, thurs, fri and sun so hopefully we covered the time well.
You never know I bet the more relaxed approach will work for you both.
Do you mind me asking what age you are?
06/06/2016 at 14:20
That's great! At least you know youv done what youv had to do 😀 I really hope so! If not at least we had a great stress free holiday to practice! Lol, I'm just turning 21. I know still young and have plenty of time! X
06/06/2016 at 14:22
Ah to be 21 again lol
sure it's the same procress for us all no matter what age we are. when you have decided its something you want, you want it now lol
06/06/2016 at 14:25
I'm aiming to be pregnant by my 21st so 3 months! Haha, I honestly didn't think it would be so hard especially with my age but I was clearly ignorant to the fact it is hard but you learn the hard way 😊 oh God yes I'm a there and then person haha
