Hi ladies, Happy New Year. So it appears I ovulated early this month (not unusual for me) and I'm now 2dpo. Is there anyone else in their tww and who would like to wait with me?

I am / will! I'm 8dpo and symptom-less, so don't have my hopes up.

Hi Gemcat, nice to meet you smile1.gif . No symptoms isnt always a bad thing so dont loose hope. When will you be testing?

Welcome Sunnybird. I'm currently waiting to O, so not up to the 2WW yet. Just to let you know, the TTC buddy groups are great for getting together with others in similar circumstances to you - I'm in the TTC #1 group. The list in there is updated regularly with the members & what stage in their cycle they are. It's often good to have company from others at the same stage in their cycle original.gif

Will probably test on Saturday. Have been googling and lots of people are saying they had no symptoms until missed period. According to averages I probably wont even have implanted yet, but since I'm an early ovulator, I just assume that I'd be an early implanter as well (silly, I know!).

Ooh, wow - #4! I can see that group would be less likely sad.gif . There is one for "TTC Now" too that is used a bit. Although the monthly thread in here has the most conversation. Good luck with your TTC journey! original.gif

Jessietroy, definitely not over. I was reading this last night ( as I was thinking about taking a test this morning as thought a BFP would be a great way to start the new year).  Read this and decided against testing:


So you never know.....!

So there is still hope original.gif although I a, not feeling it as I don't have many signs sad.gif

I never had any with my first two. Had to keep looking at the hospital booking form to remind myself it was not a dream!

#20 sunnybird

Posted 01 January 2013 - 09:58 AM

My husband said no kids when we met, I was 16 so it was fine with me, then he said 1. Number two was a happy slip up, then my hubby asked for number 3 and begged for number four, lol. Men they can change their mind at the drop of a hat so dont worry mo2k you may still have heaps of babies original.gif .

If that is the road you need to go down rest assured many of us have. My first was ivf and there are many success stories. There are buddy groups on EB and feel free to PM me if you need to chat  original.gif

In a way I think I will have a more positive approach as I think I am going nowhere with my treatment now so I will see what he says tomorrow. Thank you original.gif I am sure I will have plenty of questions and support if that's the route. Only a couple people know about my troubles conceiving. Each month is getting harder and I am taking the hit harder

I think I am about 10 dpo  , DH actually got home (he works on the APY lands) on ovulation this month normally he misses it happy.gif

My boobs are very sore and I am very moody but all tests so far have been negative sad.gif
I have been getting sore boobs just before AF recently anyway .
This is our last chance then I will need to seriousley consider getting a hysterectomy sometime this year .

Count me in.  I'm 6DPO.  Saturday I woke up with a headche, then couldnt sleep properly that night. Sunday night I was extremely moody, woke up at 2:30am and had a massive panic attack and couldn't sleep. Last night I had spotting. AF is due next Wednesday so I'm just going to wait before doing a HPT.
