I second that. AF is due tomorrow (FINALLY) the past 2 weeks have been the slowest yet, I think because it would have happened by now. I'm not testing until I'm a week late.
Good luck I hope it's your month BFP.gif  smile1.gif

Yeah, I would love to say it gets easier but to me it doesn't.

Though if you are able to distract yourself and try not to think about every feeling you have then it should be a breeze. :-)

best of luck imatrying!!!

Just_keep_Swimming - I suspected it wont get any easier, think I need to take up a new hobby for the TWW! I Definately need to relax on the symptom spotting!

Hope you both get that BFP!

Wouldn't it be  nice if every 2ww we could go and relax on an island or travel places. That would definitely be Distraction ;-)

I'm hearing you..

I'm currently 6/7 dpo and I'm going nuts :/

And no Hazel, it gets harder sorry. The more you want it, the longer it seems.

I hope everyone gets their BFPs this month...

ahhhh 7 dpo today

I started to feel really nausous in the supermarket yesterday and a bit dizzy, but i was only 6 dpo shrug.gif  might have been something I ate

Starting to think i'm going looney! feeling fine today.

FF says not to POAS until the 26th (If I don't have AF), as I don't know how long my leutal phase usually is. (so , still 12 days away!! sad.gif )

When are you ladies testing?

Posted 14 January 2013 - 12:04 PM

Definitely doesn't get any better!

7dpo here. La di da.

#10 Just_Keep_Swimming

Posted 14 January 2013 - 02:49 PM

Oh no hazel, do you think you will able to hold out that long.

I'm at 6dpo and already itching to test. This morning I had some cramping, enough to make me go ouch and straight away I'm like 'implantation cramping'.

In the TTC journey it is really hard to not over think every feeling. :-)


#11 Sophie_B

Posted 14 January 2013 - 03:18 PM

I don't think I will be able to wait, tbh if I had some tests I probably would have already POAS - I'm putting off buying them for that very reason! laughing2.gif

If I can hold off for another week, and test at 14dpo I think I will be happy with that. Should show then even if I have a long Luetal Phase?

Cramps at 6dpo sounds promising! right time for implantation.

no 'symptoms' for me today, and my temp went down a little. oh well.


Caninestorm: snap on the 7dpo!


fingers crossed for BFP's!!

#12 IamAuntyA

Posted 14 January 2013 - 10:33 PM

Thanks for the well wishes ladies original.gif


I POAS yesterday and even tho symptoms were pointing towards a BFP I got a BFN gggrrr mad.gif
Ive been really sick sick.gif lately and I'm never sick, looking back on my calander at days I was getting light cramps and everything seemed to be happening on the right days if I was pregnant, and of course no AF but still got the BFN.gif  cry1.gif

I may do another HPT in a couple of days just to make sure .

and yeah the TWW NEVER gets easier...I think it gets harder each month sad.gif

Oh i also hate it! count down is on lol biggrin.gif

#14 Sophie_B

Posted 15 January 2013 - 12:21 PM

aww sorry to hear that imatrying, I hope it's more positive in a few days!

I'm losing hope this month too, as my temp has dropped for the second day in a row and i've got spotting. I know at 8dpo it could be implantation, BUT, with the temps etc and how I feel, i'm pretty sure AF is on it's way. sad.gif

but, it's not over until AF arrives hey?


Hi melrose - good luck!

#15 Just_Keep_Swimming

Posted 15 January 2013 - 05:29 PM

Good luck Melrose!

Oh no imatrying.  I really hope you get a BFP. You might be one of those ladies who don't get a BFP Until you are past you AF due date.  I have my fingers crossed for you.

Hazel don't give up hope. I may be wrong but is it true that you get a temp drop at implantation.  Mmmm :-)

#16 Sophie_B

Posted 16 January 2013 - 03:59 PM

It was AF sad.gif
Which gives me a LP of just 7 days cry1.gif
It may just be the AF hormones, but I’m really stressing about it. Even though it’s my first cycle charting and off the BCP, so I’m telling myself that it will sort itself out in the next few months? I hope so...
Going to take some extra B6 vitamins this cycle as well as my elevit and see how I go.
I hope you ladies get a BFP soon! This thread needs some cheering up biggrin.gif




#17 ~polly~

Posted 16 January 2013 - 04:06 PM

Im going against the grain here but I hate waiting to O.  I never know when its going to happen so I feel more relaxed in the 2ww.  I only have 12 days to wait in the 2ww instead of up to 30 (or more) for O.

But that's just me winging about long irregular cycles  tongue.gif

hugs for everyone who got BFNs  sad.gif

Oh no Hazel I'm sorry your AF arrived. Big hugs to you. It sucks how your LP is only 7 days. I have read on EB that some women have done acupuncture to try and extend their LP.

Good luck for next cycle.

You have a good point Pippa26. How are you able to stay positive during to 2ww :-)

I have really sore boobies to the point when I take my bra off they feel like someone has borrowed them for the day to use as punching bags :-)

#19 Sophie_B

Posted 18 January 2013 - 09:59 AM

Thanks Just_Keep_Swimming, our health care covers acupuncture so I might try that sooner rather than later!

I've been googling short LP after BCP like crazy! hehe  and have also read about vitex and progeterone cream, but I might wait a few cycles and see how I go before trying any of that, as I've also read it can take at least 4 months for cycles to get back on track after BCP.

ooooo sore boobs!! good luck, hope you get a BFP!

Hi Pippa, irregular cycles would be very frustrating. Hope you get your BFP soon so you don't have to put up with too many more!
