Thought it was time for another of these threads! I think it's a great idea to keep each other company and obsess together on EPS hehe
I currently 8dpo today. My temps have been unusually high for the last 3 days, I've had some odd cramping and my boobs are really tender. I've also been really hungry, but that may not be related lol
I'll be testing at 13dpo which will be on Monday.
What DPO are you all up to? Any symptoms (real or imaginary)??

Hi goingbatty (love the name, assuming it's the TTC that's making you go batty?).
I'll join you in the 2ww. I'm a bit behind you (4dpo today) but it hasn't stopped me getting excited about IPS.
Since O, I've experienced: bloating, 'full' feeling + slightly sore bbs (although they don't actually look any bigger), almost non-stop hunger (after breakfast this morning I immediately started thinking about second breakfast!) and unusually clear dreams.
Like you, we started in October, so this is cycle 4. I'm doing acupuncture and chinese medicinal tea for the first time this month, so really really hoping to get my BFP next week.

I am in my first 2WW, so this is all new to me.
I am currently 10dpo, and should be due for AF in 4 days.
I have been feeling 'strange' over the past week but not sure of the cause. I have felt waves of nausea, been extreamly hungery, teary and sensitive, exhausted and mild constant cramping for the past few days. I was thinking that AF might be comming early (due to the cramping) but not sure.
I have been very busy since 'O' with moving house and travel for work so im not sure if it the life stress or potential conception thats making me feel the way i am.
I guess i will find out on Monday (either AF or testing)!!!
Posted 24 January 2013 - 11:18 AM
I'm in too!!..
I think I O'd about 12/13 Jan and am expecting AF this weekend. I have had nauesa every day for the last 9 days and my boobs are heavy. I have moments of irrational hunger (just at breakfast time), twinges & cramps... I have also succumbed to POAS about a million times and still so far
!! I will have to wait and see.. Either I'm crazy, or I have a virus or I'm up the duff! lol.. But until I know either way, I'll still be POAS every morning!
Posted 24 January 2013 - 12:43 PM
Im in the 2WW, i BD'd on the 11th, 13th, 15th & 17th, i then got a +ve OPK on the 19th and we BD'd again last night the 23rd, heres hoping we have covered all our bases and get a BFP.

the acupuncture and herbal tea sounds like e great idea, for general health too, so it can't hurt
so at 4dpo, when will you be testing? And yep, it's the ttc that's sending me batty- crazy obsessed woman!Mo2k
how long is your LP? If you are on day 6, should af be due yet? MrsBee
good on you for holding out until af is due to test! It's hard to tell sometimes with symptoms whether they are because af is imminent or not.Jaymic
I think you're the first tester!! Well, first af due lol. I'll be stalking!! Luvmy3
sounds like you got some good bd'ing in before you O'd! When will you be testing?Afm
I am desperately trying to hold out on poas early!! Currently 9dpo.
I was at the chemist today and they had frer 3 packs for $11!!!!i bought two packs without telling dh lol so now I can test and he won't even know I'm being naughty and testing early
I really am trying to hold out until at least 13dpo.
Really tender bbs today and very hungry. Cramps and twinges but nothing out of the norm from the last few days. Hmm .. Would I be really disappointed if I tested tomorrow and got a bfn? Is it worth it??

Gemcat the acupuncture and herbal tea sounds like e great idea, for general health too, so it can't hurt so at 4dpo, when will you be testing? And yep, it's the ttc that's sending me batty- crazy obsessed woman!
I swore I'd hold out til 12dpo this cycle but if I keep getting ips, I may cave at 11. I don't mind getting bfns - i'd rather know and get on with it, rather than thinking about it all day.
Your symptoms sound promising. Good luck if you do decide to test tmrw.
Posted 24 January 2013 - 07:46 PM
Yes we're in our tww wait too, i got what i thought was a +Opk early yesterday, and we Bd'ed days before and after, so fingers crossed we timed it right?
Good luck to you all in youre tww, its frustrating waiting it out!
Posted 24 January 2013 - 09:40 PM
I caved early I know, but only because I was feeling nauseous and I expected a BFP right away!!.. lol.. now i've started, I just can't stop! I guess I will find out soon enough, by the end of the long weekend I hope!
Posted 25 January 2013 - 09:18 AM
Well according to fertility friend i am now 4DPO, i was intending on testing on monday but i think that will be too soon mind you there is no harm in testing early
Posted 25 January 2013 - 05:24 PM
Jaymic here's hoping for some news by Monday- either way!Gem I'm the same as you, I'd rather just know. How you feeling today?Is ips the same as eps?
Lol LM3 if you have some ic's, why not!
Afm, DH and I are away for the wknd, so I won't be testing till Monday. I've had a few bouts of strong cramps today, and my bbs are quite sore.
Are there any testers over the weekend?

Posted 25 January 2013 - 07:41 PM
Mo2k yay, hope George stays away!
Goingbatty still feeling like I could be preggers at 5dpo. Getting tingly cramps , almost like a uti.
Eps=early pregnancy symptoms (which I think you can possibly only use when you have a confirmed bfp). Ips=imaginary pregnancy symptoms, which I think is everything up to the bfp!
Posted 25 January 2013 - 07:59 PM
I like that
...IPS... I'm hoping my IPS turns into EPS real soon!!!Mo@k
.. every day could be a day closer to a BFP!!
Goingbatty.. Hope you have a great long weekend!! Try not to think too much about POAS!!
Good luck all with the TWW.. Hoping you all have more patience than I... lol..
Posted 26 January 2013 - 06:05 AM
Well...... Im out - AF arrived today
as this is my first cycle TTC im not really sure how to feel but i do feel a bit disapointed. But oh well, onto the next cycle i guess (i was never going to be lucky enough to fall first round)
Goodluck for all those still yet to POAS, i will be hoping for lots of
Posted 26 January 2013 - 08:35 AM
I'll join in. My temp jumped today so I'm 1dpo. I'll probably test 9dpo cos I have a shortish LP.
Posted 26 January 2013 - 09:29 AM
Me, and I'm sick of it.
Posted 29 January 2013 - 06:59 AM
Mrs Bee sorry af arrived
I too remember being totally shocked when we didn't fall the first month.
Gemcat any IPS over the weekend??
Did we have any testers over the last few days??
I did this morning, 13 dpo. BFN
though I am noticeably lacking in pms which has me annoyed. I normally have 2-3 days of good cramps prior to AF arriving. For the first time ever last month I had a 16 LP which of course had me thinking if was UTD. hopefully this doesn't happen again, it's such a tease!!
Posted 29 January 2013 - 07:44 AM
sorry about your bfn, but it's not over until George arrives. Check out fertility friend's study of hpts - the average first bfp comes at 13.6dpo, so many don't get one until after George due.
AFM, super-sore bbs yesterday and today. It's unusually early, so it's making me hopeful.

Can I join?
I am in my TWW too, AF due on 2 Feb. This is our 2nd month trying. We conceived our first baby first go, so I got a little cocky!
I'm trying really hard to not test until a few days after AF is due (if she hasn't turned up, obviously). Last time i got a BFP it was so so so faint 1 day after she was due, so faint that I almost threw it in the bin thinking it was a BFN. So I figure it's not worth wasting the money on BFNs. It's so hard waiting though!
So far only possible ips are sore boobs, one in particular!
Good luck to all those still waiting!

im in too, first cycle trying after M/c TTC#1
I fell in my second cycle after coming off the pill which I was on for 10+ years.
hears to hoping - but not feeling lucky considering first time I had intense EPS this time nothing apart from spotting this month 2dpo.. im now 5dpo
good luck to you all!
Posted 29 January 2013 - 03:37 PM
I will join in! Currently in the 2WW on cycle day 22 of a very steady 28 (has been 28 days every month except 2 for 13 months so far). I had a + opk on CD 16 and we DTD on days 8,10,13,14 and 15 - DH went away on CD16. Hopefully this has done the trick as we have been trying 13 months now.
Not sure if I would have eps yet but have had a few dizzy and nauseous spells the last few days and some low tummy pains?!?I had no symptoms with my DS - in fact he was a surprise and we didn't find out till I was 7 or so weeks!
Good luck everyone!! I will prob test this weekend.
Posted 29 January 2013 - 03:54 PM
I am in the TWW. AF is due on the 6th. I am not testing until the 6th.
If I don't fall pregnant this month it will be 24-25 Months of ttc.
I am currently on CD24. Stupid 31 day cycles feels like they never end. I have been feeling slight stomach aches and little twinges here and there. Also I have had quite a rise in wanting to bed this month
Good luck everyone.
Posted 29 January 2013 - 04:07 PM
Also I have had quite a rise in wanting to bed this month
Good luck everyone.
Hmmmm me too - even DH commented on it - wonder what that means?!?
Posted 29 January 2013 - 04:56 PM
Me too, first cycle after taking the pill for 20 years
so I think it'll be a BFN for me.
IPS have been a cramping, extra hungry in the mornings and *very* sore boobs, particularly one, for last 3 days.
Was expecting AF 4 days ago, but that's based on the date I stopped taking the pill so who know's what could be going on! I can't even workout whether I O'd this cycle, no temp change, no CM change.
Will just ride this one through and hope i can figure my way into a regular cycle next time round.
Good luck ladies
Posted 30 January 2013 - 09:35 AM
Silversmiley: i used vitex after coming off the pill from long use, got my body back into its natural cycle quickly and used it this time too after M/C and i o'd within 2 weeks back in check... FX'd for both of us but alot of internet pages will tell you your body is most fertile after coming off the pill so good luck
AFM: Im 6dpo and very tender and tingly boobs like the first time I got my BFP, heres to hoping..
