I'm here for September too, it's CD 4 for me. Last month I o'd on day 22, and each cycle has been getting earlier so hoping I don't have to wait too long this cycle.

Hi Ladies,
I should actually be in this month. I’m CD8, but expecting to do a FET probably about 9/10 Sept, I see my doc on 6/9 to confirm everything is on track.
Good luck for September everyone.

Hi everyone! Thought I’d join in, September will be my first month TTC after my son was born 15 months ago (May 2018). AF is due in two days, so won’t be trying till later in the month, but I loved following along with everyone’s journey first time around, so here I am! Good luck to everyone.

Hi all!

AF due today for me and no sign of it yet. Don’t “feel” pregnant and haven’t tested yet... Only have some ICs anyway so waiting it out a few more days. August was our first month TTC #2.

Best of luck everyone!

Hi ladies, jumping in here again. Cycle #3 TTC #2, have a 21.5mo DD who still breastfeeds (no intention to wean) but that is causing not so regular cycles. First two TTC cycles were 38 days, last cycle was 21 days (O on CD11,10 day LP). Today is CD2 and just a bit TMI, it seems like a healthier period than what I’ve had since it returned at 15mo postpartum. So perhaps that’s a sign that my body is getting back to “normal” and maybe this month will be our month.

Our plan is to DTD every second day, I’m using IC OPK’s, but that’s about it.

Good luck to everyone this month. I have my fingers crossed for all of us.

Hi all! I'm a long time follower and finally posting...
I've been off of BC for 15 months now. My cycles are irregular so we've been tracking and DTD every 2 days for 6 cycles with no luck yet. Currently CD28, which doesn't mean much because of my irregular cycles. Hopefully this is the month! Good luck everyone

AF 2 days late here. Did a test this morning with IC and negative. What’s weird is I have definite ewcm today and quite a lot. Anyone else had this just before their period? Or in early pregnancy?

I did LZTM. I thought maybe I didn't o and that it was happening super late. I also has no luck on IC but then used a FRER and turned out it was +VE. Only now at 5 days after an I starting to get a line on the IC

Okay off to buy a frer today! Will update tomorrow morning!

#13 loulou1985

With a frer you should get a line no matter what time of day if you're overdue for your period! Just saying 😛

Officially in the 2ww. We timed BD very well this month so we've definitely given this month a good shot. Also first month taking Clomid. Have to get a blood test on friday to check progesterone levels.

On our second cycle trying to conceive #2. Took 10 months to conceive #1 however I have had some hormonal issues since giving birth to ds1 so I have no idea how long it will take this time round.

good luck everyone!

So an update from me... I waited to test until this morning because I knew the voice inside my head would convince me it was a BFN at any other time of day there *could* be a chance it’s wrong haha.

Tested this morning and there’s definitely a second line but it’s reallllly faint. As in, barely shows up in a photo but I can see it clearer inverting the photo. My hopes are not up as I’d have expected a stronger line at 3 days late. Maybe a chemical? I don’t know. We’ll see!

#17 Kezzy321

Have my fingers crossed for you that the line continues to get darker for you over the coming days.

Fx LZTM, could you have ovulated slightly later than you thought? Or perhaps implantation was on the later side.

I'm jumping in because I'm freaking out a little. I'm CD 28 today but usual cycle is 32 days, so should have ovulated last Monday. Had a few spots when I wiped last night, which is earlier than I expected (expected period to be next tuesday/wednesday) but I usually have spotting then period starts so just figured I was out one and for all. But woke up this morning with no period. Negative pregnancy test. I've never had (or maybe noticed) implantation bleeding so unsure wtf my body is doing. Just wait and see a few days I suppose

This could definitely be possible. On my Flo app I recorded ewcm on the 23rd which is almost a full week later than I would usually O. The 23rd/24th would put me at about 12DPO now so... maybe?! Going a bit mental today.

Keeping fingers crossed for you! Could be promising!

Morning all. I wanted to wait until Saturday to test again but caved and tested this morning. Very much a BFN so I guess yesterday was either catching the tail end of a chemical or a false positive.

Sorry to hear that lztm. Hopefully af shows up soon so you can start afresh

#22 Kallie88

Posted 06 September 2019 - 08:33 AM

I've got a little bit of light blood today. Never had bleeding in pregnancy so I'm going to assume it's af. Guess no more babies for us :(

I'm sorry to hear that Kallie and LZTM, it's so disappointing.
