Hi all, i'm currently in a tww and want to chat with others in a tww too. We a ttc our 3rd child and the first month of trying. I'm currently 3dpo and due for AF on the 8th March.

I think i'm doing well so far...no strong urge to know...but fingers crossed we caught the egg! I'm sure the wait will feel the longest when i'm closer to AF but for now i'm ok. Anyone else in March is MY month group?

Hi 3's A Charm, I'll join you! AF is due some time between 8th and 12th March. We're TTC our 2nd child and this is also our first month of trying. DH is a teacher and we're hoping for a baby at the end of the year after the Year 12s finish, so he's not so busy at school and so he can help out in the holidays!

I'm also hoping we caught the egg, as my OPK was only positive for one day, whereas the OPK packet said you usually have two days...? Anyway....!

I had lots of aching just after ovulation, so I 'felt' pregnant then (even though you can't apparently, until implantation!) but now I feel perfectly normal, so not feeling very pregnant at all.

I'm also reasonably happy to wait, although if I knew I could get an accurate result now, of course I'd test! DH was pleasantly surprised that we 'only' have to wait 2 weeks, but for some it can feel like a long time!

How old are your other kids? Did you fall pregnant easily with them? We conceived DS in the 2nd month of trying, so we're hoping it'll happen quickly again.

My DS is 6..7 in 3 weeks and DD is 4, I think it took about 3/4 month to ttc DS and around 2/3 months with my DD...so I too am hoping we conceive nice and quick again original.gif

I too had period like cramps shortly after ovulation...thought I was going nuts but only time will tell i suppose  original.gif

TWW here too happy.gif
AF due on 3rd March and I expect it to show up at this stage, but as it's our first cycle trying I can live with that. I took an early HPT today and got a BFN. The only "symptoms" I have are feral mood swings and an aversion to looking in the mirror this week - usual PMS for me though.
Fingers are crossed but I'm definitely not expecting a BFP this month. Good luck to you ladies, I'm glad we can share the loooooong TWW together.

Me!

I think i'm at DPO 7 and AF due on 5th March.
We're TTC our second and this is our second cycle trying.

BJK76
, we too conceived our DS in the 2nd month of trying, but i don't think its the same this time around as i don't feel pregnant at all.

I've been feeling fine, no symptoms except for some period like cramping tonight but i had cramping exactly this time last cycle so its not looking promising sad.gif

I'm really not expecting a BFP this month...

Trying to hold out for testing for at least a few more days but i must admit i was close today. I hope we can hold out together!

When are you all thinking of testing?

I'm with you! Glad to find company because I'm going a little crazy with the TWW!
This is our first cycle TTC #1. Also first cycle after coming off BCP - so I don't really know when AF should I arrive (on the pill, it would have been today). I didn't have a thermal shift so this month probably wasn't a winner, but I did get a clearblue smiley on cd19 so I'm still hopeful! (Bjk76 - i only had the one pos opk too).
Currently cd9, going to test on cd12 (Wednesday) if no AF before then. DH is currently travelling for work and he gets back on Wednesday night, so it would be lovely to surprise him with the news!

Hi
I just started the 2ww and I'm due for AF on 8th March.  This is the first month I have used the ov-watch so hoping for a BFP but after 2 years of trying and one miscarriage we have a FS on 6th march.
Good luck everyone
Lisa

JustPlainMum, I think I won't test until AF is due, so around 8th-12th March. Seems a long way away!
FrenchSoda - that's interesting you only got one day of 'smiley' as well!

It's 12.30am and I've just gotten up after falling asleep putting DS to bed. (I feed him to sleep.) This has happened 2 nights in a row. Does it mean anything to do with a pregnancy? Probably not! I guess I'm expecting not to be pregnant, so that I won't be too disappointed if I don't get a BFP. Also because I'm not feeling overly pregnant, but then again I'm not really meant to feel pregnant just yet! Keep wondering if I'm going to start feeling nauseous soon. I only had mild nausea for 3 weeks with DS though and it was later in the first trimester. I hope at least some of us get a successful pregnancy out of this TWW!

Good to see I have a few test buddies  biggrin.gif I don't know if I want to wait until I miss AF or test before AF is due, I have 10 internet cheapies and 1 FR and I want to get some digitals soon, I should stock up on opk's and things just incase AF does arrive.

Hope everyone is still sane laughing2.gif

Hi! im CD24 of a 29/30 day cycle. We are TTC #3 and this is our 3 month trying.

We didnt try with DS1 & 2 so this is our 1st time trying and we are hoping to finish our family with a baby girl as we are only having 3 kids max.

#11 lisajane666

Posted 25 February 2013 - 07:19 PM

How do you hold off testing as I'm so impatient and want to test now and often test early even though I know it's too early. What is the earliest you can test most test are the 1st day due of AF?

I'm in!
8dpo today, going to test on Saturday the 2nd, at 13dpo. I bought a stack of frer on special $11 for a 3 pack so I'm not too concerned about wasting them lol. And I'd rather know either way.
No new symptoms this month- usual sore boobs and cramping intermittently.
Looking forward to some + results!!!

#13 Jaymic

Posted 25 February 2013 - 08:03 PM

I'm in as well.. I think I'm about 9 or 10 DPO today and I caved and tested  last Saturday.. needless to say BFN!! So I'm holing out to test until next Saturday....
No symptoms as such at the moment. I had lower back pain much like when I get my period at 3/4/5 DPO.
I used OPK for the first time and it tested posative for a couple of days.. when that happens when do you ovulate? I'm a bit confused. I though it would be 12 to 36 hours from when the OPK first comes up positive.. is that right?

Best of luck ladies.. I hope there is a rush of BFPs comming our way!

#14 JustPlainMum

Posted 26 February 2013 - 10:35 AM

Hi all! This thread is looking kind of lonely...

Trying really hard not to test but i want to know already!!!
Af expected on 5th March so 7 more days, i could test tomorrow but i would probably get a BFN so i'm fighting the urge to test but i need help!

I think i'm about DPO 9/CD22 and still not feeling about real symptoms besides some more period like cramping and hot flushes, and major stabbing pain in left boob all last night so i'm not really feeling this month but FX anyways.

Jaymic that sounds about right, you ovulate around 12 to 36 hours from your first positive OPK. Hope you got lots of BD in then.

goingbatty looks like we are cycle buddies! Hope you can hold out till saturday.
Those tests were really cheap, where did you find them?

*~Luvmy3~* I read you got a BFP on another thread!!!!! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! eexcite.gif  eexcite.gif  eexcite.gif  tthumbs.gif  tthumbs.gif  tthumbs.gif
Fill us in on all the details!

ooohh running out of time, sorry to those i left out. FX to more BFP!!!

#15 FomoJnr

JPM, we are indeed! When will you be testing? Only reason I'm testing on Sat is because SIL's baby shower is that afternoon so I'd like to know so I can sulk accordingly at the shower lol. Got the tests at Docs Megasave in Newcastle. I might have 3 packets ... Lol



#16 *~Luvmy3~*

Posted 26 February 2013 - 11:33 AM

Hi!

JustPlainMum yes i did get a BFP.gif this morning, in fact i am shocked actually to say the least!! The last 2 cycles i got 2 faint +ves but they must have just been chem or something else as those lines are nothing like this one! I am going to see my Dr this morning for a blood test cos i am way too impatient and more so i want that dating scan referral in my hot lil hand!!!

Posted 26 February 2013 - 12:18 PM

Hello ladies...
I've just experienced some light pink spotting on the toilet paper.. Now I don't know what to think. unsure.gif In a normal 28 day cycle this could be AF, but my cycles have of late been irregular. I had a posative OPK at CD17/18 and consider today to be 10/11 DPO...

So now I'm just confused.. I never had spotting in my first pregnancy and I don't have any AF symptoms.

I was going to wait until Saturday to POAS .. but if it's AF I guess I don't have to bother. huh.gif

Luvmy3... YAY!!!! Congrats!!.. I just scrolled down and read your post!! YAY!!

Posted 26 February 2013 - 01:21 PM

goingbatty I was trying to hold off testing until the 5th march, the day AF is expected but i think i will probably cave and test earlier as i'm way too impatient.
Well the plus in testing on Saturday for you is that if it is a BFN at least you might be able to enjoy a drink or two. Well that's what i will be doing anyways.

Jaymic Could it be implantation spotting?
When are you expecting AF?

*~Luvmy3~* There's definitely two lines there! Thats what my test was like when i found out i was pregnant with my DS. When in your cycle did you test? Goodluck with your blood test and keep us updated with what happens!

#21 Jaymic

Posted 26 February 2013 - 07:05 PM

Hi JustPlainMum,

I was expecting AF on Friday.. so who knows... periods have been irregular.

I guess I'll find out in the next day or so.. but I will prob cave and test in the morning... lol.. like you.. I'm way too impatient!! If it's implantation spotting, will it be too early to test do you think? maybe I should just wait it out. if AF is on it's way, then I wont need to bother. huh.gif

#22 JustPlainMum

Posted 27 February 2013 - 06:41 AM

So I caved and tested.... BFN sad.gif
So disappointed!
I'm around dpo10.  I knew I didn't feel pregnant but seeing the test made it reality.
Jaymic, I think you should wait.



#23 Jaymic

Posted 27 February 2013 - 08:40 AM

Just Plain Mummy


Sorry to hear about your BFN.. but it is still early..Fx for a BFP next time you POAS original.gif try again in a few more days.
I caved as well and BFN this morning sad.gif .. Also no AF yet and no further spotting. If it was implantation spotting, then I will test again in a couple of days.. just hoping that AF doesn't arrive on Friday.

I hate waiting!!



#24 Country (deci)Mel

Posted 27 February 2013 - 08:51 AM

Me!

I'm waiting on the outcome of my 10th? 12th? cant remember now - IVF transfer... AF is due on the 2nd and I'm supposed to be testing on the 5th.  (the clinic give you a HPT and a referral for bloods on transfer day)

I am slowly going mad (if you read my post in the IVF long haulers buddy group you will see the silly extent of my madness!)

My DP has been much more 'aware' this time - usually he is the 'we shall not mention this' type (his way of coping) but for some reason we are both a bit 'up' about this one - a few times a day he will rub my tummy and say "Hang in there little buddy! Hold on tight!"

Good luck to my fellow TWW stress-a-thonics!


#25 Jaymic

Posted 27 February 2013 - 09:54 AM

Hi Mel,
You have bee through a tough time!!!.. fingers and toes crossed for you for a BFP this time around!

Through all your attempts did you have EPS.. or IPS as they say? Were they common through your 2ww's?

I think actually having IPS and getting a BFN is so much harder than not having symptoms and getting a BFN.. it really can drive you batty!!!

FX everyone with a huge sprinkle of BabyDust!!!
