HELP! I have chronic Hayfever, I mean real bad! I go through a box of tissues a day... I know I can’t take Zyrtec during my fertile window as it dries up all bodily mucus, but I’m wondering if I can safely take it now at 5/6DPO???
When not TTC I have to take 1 a day just to function...
I am really struggling & it’s particularly bad tonight & my throat is itching like crazy!
I want to take one tonight so I can try & get some sleep...
I will call my FS tomorrow but can’t call now 😫

Funnily enough, I’ve had bad hayfever tonight too.
Just googled, Zyrtec fine to take while pregnant, so should be no issue in 2WW.
Antihistamines either send me loopy or don’t work at all

I caved in last night & took a Zyrtec so feeling much better today!
Funnily enough I have still had a fair bit of CM today... I usually don’t get much but today I almost felt like my period had arrived a week early it was that wet down there but nope just clearish CM!
I think I am actually only 6DPO today based on the above responses... I got my solid smiley last Thursday so probably O’d on Friday.
Not yet tempted to test so will try & hold out as long as possible...

I tested at day 24, bfn. Day 30 now so will test again tomorrow. Not feeling like anything has happened though.

Keepswimming... what CD did you O? CD 24 seems pretty early to test! Fingers crossed you test tomorrow & get your BFP!
Posted 09 May 2019 - 06:16 PM
Keepswimming - good luck for tomorrow! You've done well waiting 6 whole days between tests, my willpower is terrible haha.
I am super excited because I got a positive OPK today for the first time since we started trying. I'm breastfeeding so my cycles are all over the place, and I've been doing OPKs for weeks. I'm guessing O tomorrow then the two week wait begins.

I’m a fool... 7DPO & I caved in & tested! 😫😫😫
Not to anyone’s surprise it’s a BFN....
Posted 10 May 2019 - 07:59 AM
Sooo I am trying not to get to excited, but on Monday I got my bfp. I was 9dpo. I got a bfn at 7dpo babyblessed so don’t worry at all about that.
Good luck to everyone else!

Thanks peebs and Nat. Been here twice before in the last 12 months, both ending in mmc (one at 11 weeks, one at 12.5 weeks after seeing that healthy baby on two separate scans) so just taking it one day at a time. My obst couldn’t provide reasons why. All tests came back clear with me and Bub.
I know days of scans will be very nervous!!
For everyone else, thought I’d list my symptoms pre bfp as no doubt everyone is symptom spotting like I was!
My major symptom was yellow cm. I don’t remember having it before, even with my other pregnancies. This month was different too. Had way more EWCM before ovulation! Was like everything just finally fell into place.
I really hope that everyone finally gets to welcome a beautiful Bub into their family. Some of you have been through so much. Losing a Bub after meeting it, I can’t imagine it. You are all so strong! Good luck.

Oh Wow... Congratulations TTC!
Thanks for giving me some hope to hang on too...
So happy for you & have everything crossed that this is the one you finally get to take home safely in your arms!
I am annoyed with myself for testing so early but pleasantly surprised I didn't collapse in a heap like I normally do when I see a BFN!
We still have about 2 or 3 more chances to fall naturally before we start IVF & I feel better now that my FS has told me he is confident that either way we will have a baby (or two) in ours arms by end of next year!
I just need to learn to be patient.... Definitely NOT one of my strengths!

TTC123 soooooo happy for you but totally understand why you don’t want to get too excited just yet. I really hope that third times a charm really rings true for you and that this one is your take home baby. All the best of luck and congratulations xxx

Congrats ttc123! I can imagine the next couple of months will be very nerve wracking, but I really hope it all goes smoothly for you.

Day 31 bfn. Waiting for AF now.
Congrats Ttc123. Hope it goes well.

Congratulations TTC very exciting for you.
I tested again today BFN 9 days late and 22dpo this is driving me insane. Two nights in a row I've had a suddon onset of wanting to vomit at 6.30. Ahh who knows.

When you hear how someone just had sex once this month the day after O & they are pregnant in their first month trying...
Breaks my heart we are all on this sh*tty ride 💔
Posted 10 May 2019 - 07:44 PM
Babyblessed Im surround by friends who had multiple kids like anyone could just go to the shop and buy them or accidently fell pregnant to random people. Whilst I haven't been trying for long I was certainly fooled into thinking it was just have sex once and you'll have a baby kinda thing... I'm most frustrated about the weird deviation to my cycle I've been tracking for years and a couple of day has been the latest go AF.
Posted 10 May 2019 - 08:03 PM
Its breaks my heart too babyblessed.
But so thankful thats pretty much how it worked for my other 2 children.
Incredibly cruel twist that this one has been so difficult.
Fingers crossed for an amazing May.

Sorry I’ve been absent... just felt a bit down.
In my 2WW technically but I no longer get my hopes up like before. At least I’m not counting the days. I went to the doctor and I have blood tests organized for next month. So that’s positive. Who else is in their 2WW?
Congratulations Ttc! Great news!!
Posted 10 May 2019 - 10:29 PM
Congrats Ttc! I hope this is the one
I hear you Peony. Are you getting blood tests to check when you're Oing?
I don't really know where I am in the 2WW, but I've been busy and sick so haven't really had time to think about it. I'm not holding out hope for this month because it's been weird. I was having strange cramps around the time I was getting EWCM, but haven't really ever had O pain before. I guess I'm overthinking everything because I just want to get pregnant again so badly!
Posted 10 May 2019 - 11:17 PM
Yep, 6dpo here. This will be my first cycle where I know I have a fighting chance. I’ve had my fibroids and polyp removed, medication has helped me ovulate and I’ve pretty much BD 5 days leading up to o.
I’m not sure how I got though 6 months of no ovulation. Good luck to everyone in the 2ww.
Posted 11 May 2019 - 07:46 AM
I no what you mean Peony it’s an emotional roller coaster xx
I’m also in the TWW at 4 dpo.. I have just started using the Ovia app and it says 8 days until pregnancy test so I’m going to try really hard to wait...
Big congratulations Ttc that’s great news xxx
