Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive

I've been quite slack on the weekly threads recently but couldn't see one for this week yet so hope you don't mind me starting one. How was everyone's weekends?
I'm currently 6dpo, I'm symptom spotting like mad but I'm not feeling hopeful this month.

Hi Dolly, try not to symptom spot yet, you'll just go crazy, and you wouldn't really have many symptoms until implantation, anyways. Yes, there would be slight hormone changes, but it's pretty rare to experience symptoms that early, and even women who claim to have had symptoms from only a couple dpo probably felt those symptoms every month when they were ttc, as so many different things could be put down to pregnancy, but that could also be things completely different.
My weekend was entirely too hectic with two weddings, AND I totally missed dtd yesterday because I was hungover from the wedding on Saturday. And there was totally EWCM and everything! ARGH!
Ah well, still no temp rise, so it should be fine. Hope everyone else is having a good Monday!

Hi Dolly, fingers crossed for you this month!
Hi Wispa, your weekend sounds great! Hopefully you haven't missed out this month.
AFM cd 6 so nothing to report, on holiday count down now!

Hi All!! Dolly I'm DPO5 and doing my best NOT to symptom spot :) Wispa - not too late to DTD yet to be in for a chance this month!
Lulu - hi!! Hope AF clears off quickly. m

Wispa - Yes I know I do this every month and it does me no good! I am actually making a note now for me to refer to next month so I can see I am being daft!! You may still be ok for this month if no rise yet?
Lulu - Where are you off to on hols?
Hi Sue, hope Monday is treating you well

Hi Sue! I hope you manage not to symptom spot :-)
Dolly, I am going to Santorini I am so excited!!

Hey all, this is my first one of these threads ... I need to gen up on the abbreviations I think!
Abbreviation homework aside. We did our first baby dance on Wednesday last week which was day 13 of my cycle. According to my iPeriod app that I use, this was when I was apparently at my most fertile, however I will be buying ovulation kits for future as I know the apps are based on averages and likelihoods rather than facts. Anyway, I'm due on 18th September and I am usually like clockwork so we'll see what happens.
In the meantime we'll just keep DTD-ing ... can think of worse things to do on a rainy evening.

I changed my name but haven't really posted much under my old name. I got my BFP yesterday and starting bleeding this morning. So looks like we're TTC again.

This is me so far this month. Looks promising, but too early to think yet. Finally worked out how to post graphs!

Evening ladies, I'm cd29, 15dpo and bfn this morning but still no AF. I guess I'll wait till the weekend and see if maybe I got ovulation date wrong but I'm dreading that this might be yet another cycle with no end date (I'm seriously never going on the pill ever again)

DollyP & Sue: Symptom spotting is a pain, try to keep busy
Wispa: sounds like you haven't missed your chance yet
Lulu: enjoy your holiday, when are you off?
Enjayee: Well you may not know all the abbreviations for here but you've helped clear up an abbreviation on other sites that I've never known. I've always wondered why dtd was referred to as BD, clearly it must be baby dance!
furmummy: Some people I've seen on here have had bleeding in early pregnancy & have continued to carry to full term healthy babies, I really hope this is the case for you x
Barefoot: I don't temp so I don't know anything about your chart but I hope this cycle brings a bfp at the end of it!
AFM: It's CD12 for me. As I'm trying to follow the sway for a boy we dtd yesterday & am now waiting till I ov to dtd again. I took my 1st opk today & it was neg but I can't remember how long after the 1st positive you ovulate. I've been taking quite a few supplements to help sway boy & create more cm & they're definitely helping the latter. So much so that I think tomorrow I'll put my mooncup back in. Hope to see a few BFP's soon x

Sorry I missed you there ww, hope it's good news for you soon x
10/09/2013 at 13:40
Hi Sue, hope the 2ww goes quick for you!
DollyP - I'm off to Santorini :-)
Enjayee - Fingers crossed for you!
Furmummy - So sorry to hear you are bleeding are you going to go to the docs?
Barefoot - Fingers crossed for your as well, will you test early?
Wishfulwhispers - Hope it's a bfp for you soon!
Blackkat - It will be very interesting once you get your bfp to see if you get a boy!
JJ - Sorry to hear your cycles are so long, I hope you get a bfp or af soon
Nothing to add from me, cd 7 not temping or anything just going to dtd every other day and see what happens!

JJ - Have you been to the doctors about your irregular cycles? I have, not that they can do a lot about it.
AFM - CD28 and I have no idea what is going on. As some already know - I used the Clearblue Advanced OPKs last week which showed high fertility on Mon / Tues and peak on Wed / Thurs (i.e. I should have ovulated then). I used alongside IC OPKs (not sure why now...). On Wed / Thurs they were quite dark, but in all honesty, I don't think they were a positive. Wish I'd kept them to look at now! Its only on reflection I've decided they were not positive.... I had all other symptoms alongside my Clearblue results, EWCM, slightly tender chest, etc.
Sunday I had EWCM - white in colour but definitely stretchy. Bizzare as previous days (during what I thought was ovulation) I had the wet / clear EWCM. Today - cramping (Sorry for TMI but feels how you do before AF / when you need the toilet but you don't) and more EWCM - again white, and stretchy, and a substantial amount again. Yesterday I had positive OPK and just done another and very dark again also (not quite as dark as control line but I'm doing it earlier than I would normally and I've just been drinking lots of fluid!).
Basically, I have no idea what is going on *shrugs shoulders*.

Hi Mrs_A, sorry if this is a stupid suggestion but would it be worth doing a test at all? I hope you get some answers soon! x
10/09/2013 at 14:08
Mrs A - did you do a test just to make sure your not pregnant?????
I'm CD22 today and just xcounting the days till AF.... I'm a pretty regular 28 day cycle so I may test on Saturday as I have tender boobs which is how it was last time..... and we are going to a party on Sat night so I want to drink :)
Hi to all :)
Hi Lulu - we are on the same idea for Mrs A!!!!!

I'm only 5 DPO if the Clearblue was right. I thought perhaps body gearing up to ovulate then not doing it so gearing up again etc? I have very irregular cycles and have never known when I've potentially ovulated before as don't usually use opks so it's hard to know what is normal for me. I have also noticed the tiniest bit of blood when I've gone to the toilet and wiped. Like literally wouldn't even notice it but as I'm looking at the paper for ewcm I have seen it. Twice. Could be because I keep wiping so much as want to see if there is ewcm etc.
10/09/2013 at 14:35
Do a test - if just to rule it out!
10/09/2013 at 14:39
I'm overseas so can't get hold of one. I don't think I would do one anyway. I really don't want to start testing too early you know?
