I have been feeling super strange this TWW and whilst I think AF is on her way, i'm wondering if i'm still in with a chance, or if someone can assist me make sense of of how i'm feeling!

This is my second cycle off BCP. I'm charting with FF. Last cycle I had a LP of just 7 days. sad.gif

I'm currently at 10 dpo. yay!

On 4, 6 & 7 DPO I felt nauseas all day! I've since had a look online and found it can be an ovulatory symptom from the increase in progesterone, has anyone experianced this? I've also had creamy CM every day.

This morning, after about 5 hours sleep, at my normal time, my temperature was 36.6, my highest temp so far, my LP temps have been about 36.4-36.5 - BUT i feel like AF is coming, and I just had some brown CM.

But i'm also very nauseas today.

So high temp and nauseas should mean I still have progesterone going on?

So am I getting my period, or is there still hope. progesterone should drop off before AF right?

Is 10 dpo too late for implantation spotting? wdyt?

AHHH i'm so confused, planning on POAS tues (12 dpo) if no AF.

thanks for reading original.gif

Hey OP,

Implantation can happen between roughly 6-12 DPO, so there's still a chance its implantation. I think you just have to wait it out and see - POAS on 12, 13 or 14 DPO. Also are you using opks? I just guess when I O based on CM/CD so I dont know for sure what day I O... could you be further ahead or further behind where you think you are? Not much help, I know original.gif good luck though!

Thanks for your response Mummylyss!

I haven't been using OPKs, just CM and Temps. I guess  I could be anywhere from 10 - 13 dpo.
bright pink cm this morning, then Brown cm all day today, no AF yet. huh.gif bit of a sickly feeling before lunch and again before dinner, temp dipped a little this morning, still above my coverline though.

I'm feeling about 95% certain my temp will dip tomorrow and I wll get AF, if not I will POAS!

well temp dipped, but still above coverline

so POAS this morning - BFN cry1.gif  should be abt 12 dpo atm

Convinced AF would show (and still am), but still browny/red on TP - no proper flow to it and seems to be getting less this afternoon.

sickly/light nausea feeling has continued on and off all day. sick.gif

I'm still confused, but resigned to the fact I will just have to wait and see. blush.gif

I will update on what eventuates, just in case anyone down the track has similar and finds this post !

Thanks Mummylyss!

AF showed today, finally! mad.gif It had been stressing me so much, I’m just glad it’s resolved.

Gave me abt a 13 day LP, which is great, except I spotted from 10 DPO..

I took a B complex this cycle too (as well as elevit).

I’m hoping its my body getting back into the swing of things after BCP, so fingers crossed next cycle it’s a 13 day LP with no spotting (or a BFP would be great!). biggrin.gif
