Getting Pregnant <
Trying to conceive
29/12/2015 at 13:38
Myself and the husband have been TTC since October, I know its not long but Im not really sure whats going on. I came off the pill (microlite) on October 8th and didn't get a withdraw period until the 12th of December which finished on the 16th. Haven't had anything at all since.
I have had back pain occasionally, sore boobs only sometimes and pressure in the lower middle of my abdomen, (could just be general pains) several BFN but haven't tested in a week as I'm disheartened. Has anyone else had anything like this?
I would love to hear your stories xx

I was currently on the pill but stopped 4months ago and have tried to see some pattern in my cycles as I have always been irregular. Use to have 36-40 day cycles and 1st month off the pill it was a 24 day cycle, 2nd month it was 29, 3rd was 30 and last one was 33. LMP 25th dec. So I am completely unsure when I O'd. Last mon 14th dec, I checked my cervix for the first time ever and it felt high up, open and wet(tmi) so I'm hoping I was ovulating. So I will use that as my approx O day. Been checking my cervix same time everyday since and it has been high, quite soft and closed. I will go through my symptoms since the day I hope I O'd. 1Dpo- cervix too high to reach. No apparent symptoms yet.2dpo- cervix reachable. Felt high softish and closed. 3dpo- had really bad bloating and heartburn. And breast feel a tad bit tender.4dpo- bloating again. Much worse on evenings and had abit of heartburn throughout the day. Breast don't feel tender5dpo-bad bloating on the evening once again and when I was in bed, I felt this sharp twinge in my lower left tummy. Only lasted a few seconds6dpo-more bloating on evening and heartburn and had slight tummy cramps whilst in bed7dpo- breast felt abit tender again and has severe bloating on the night and gas(tmi) lol8dpo- tender breast, heartburn and again bloating. 9dpo- tender breast, heart burn and vivid dreams10dpo- tender breast, vivid dreams and constipation. 11dpo- same as 10dpo12dpo- same as 10dpo13dpo- did a frer test and had a very very faint positive. So did a clear blue digi and came up negative. 14dpo- did another clear blue digi using fmu and came up pregnant 1-2 weeks and then did another frer and the line was still faint but darker than the day before15dpo- (today) did a cheapie test and could see a line but it was a squinter. Will test again in a few days. I'm feeling very wet down below. Keep checking if af has came but nothing yet.
When are you planning on testing?

Lmp 25th Nov. Not dec xx

I was thinking of leaving it another week to test again, I don't want to keep seeing negatives!
I have had similar symptoms to you but without the heartburn, I actually didn't remember the vivid dreams until you just mentioned it. I suppose, like me you want to be more sure before spending a fortune on doctors. I just want to have a good solid line! :)
Im glad to hear you are seeing faint lines,that must be so encouraging! I've seen nothing at all so far but I'm hoping I will next week

i am leaving my testing for a few days. I am spending a fortune on tests so I am going to do it again next Monday and hopefully itl be a solid line. If it is then il go to the doctors to have it confirmed. I am just so petrified to see faint positives and then test again next week and see a negative. I'm trying not to drive myself crazy in the meantime.
Like your symptoms, my breast were only tender occasionally and had some discomfort in my lower middle tummy. It was like trapped wind.
When I first came off the pill, I didn't want to start ttc conceive right away. I wanted to check what my periods were doing.
I really hope a bfp happens for u. But please try not to get too disheartened. Easier said than done though, I know.

This was my test this morning on a cheap testand this is mine from yesterday morning on a frer(first response earlier reader)
after having the negative, I'm now having a hard time believing the one from the day before. Maybe due to the fact of my last chemical pregnancy. Will just have to wait and see what next week brings x
29/12/2015 at 16:28
Oh my god, those cheap ones are the ones I have been using! I haven't tried a first response one at all. I have to get a first response one so! Id believe the first response one if i was you. Im very excited for us now (without getting my hopes up of course) xx
29/12/2015 at 16:39
