Trying- Mrs P ended up reply to my PM. So we are all caught up which is great. And thanks for the congrats- it still feels like a dream.

Maufie- hi! I’ve been trying to steal clear of the forums, but it’s hard to just forget about everyone. We’ve heard from
Mrs P.

Ckmelb- wow! So brave! I have everything crossed for you. As Mrs P once said “I’m going full pretzel”. I’ll pop back in to see how you go.

Nepo88, it is not fair you need to deal with these sort of things, when ttc is stressful enough in the first place. I'm sorry you need to go through this :(

Ckmelb, are you talking about Czech republic? Best of luck!!

Fx for everybody else in the tww, hope it will be quickly over and end with two lines for each of you.

I am 7 dpiui today, got bfn, expecting AF in 4 days. I think I only have 1 hpt left, so will try to save it for weekend. I don't have a clue about my pms/bfp symptoms (my body proves this to me every cycle :>), but yet use each spare minute reading the web.

Hey Everyone

Well I really don't want to be a negative nancy but I have a feeling our little moon beam didn't work. I have a sorest back. I am not too sure if it is my AF coming or my body changing...I am hoping the latter. AF is due on Friday 12th but because of all the drugs I have no idea if she will come or not.  BT is next Wednesday 17th. It is just wait and see really :(

Trying again I hope you are proved wrong in the happiest way over the weekend and next week. Fingers are crossed for you.

Nbmb wishing you all the best too! Hoping that the weekend hpt bring you a bfp.

Nbmb I think 7dp is a bit too early to test after an IUI. It takes 1 day to fertilise, 5 days to blastocyst and then a few days to implant (if my understanding is correct). I think 11 days
+ is more reliable.

Trying again, I think all the meds do all sorts of things to our symptoms. So my strategy is just to ignore them all

Maufie and Theia best of luck on this cycle

@joany - I hop dhea does the trick for you!

Thanks birdie, I do remember the full pretzel :) thanks so much
