I've been reading through this website now for 2 months, since DH and I started TTC #1 and I believe I've learned all the lingo attached to pregnancy and everything around it! :D
And then I thought, why not share my story? :)
I have polycystic ovaries but it's not turned into a syndrome, as my doctor said. I had treatment for and with the pill and I got off that 3 years ago when DH and I got married. We used pulling out for BC (as we didn't really care if any "accidents" happened but weren't anxious enough to have a baby at the time). So 2 months ago we decided it's time to have a family. First try we didn't use OPKs or BBT measuring or anything else. We just BD'd as often as we liked and decided to see what happened. No luck though! Same second month.
This month I decided to use the Clear Blue Digital OPK (which I regret) to see when I would ovulate, as I don't have a very steady cycle (can be from 35-45 days). I think I missed O for this month with the OPK but I was also tracking CP and CM and at the time I got a negative OPK I had - TMI - stretchy egg white CM and cervix was high and open, so we BD'd then and ofcourse throughout the cycle. According to my 40 day cycle, which I take as a granted I think I ovulated on the 16th August and we BD'd 13, 15, 16, 18, 19 and just to make sure I wasn't late Oing we also BDd on the 22nd (today!).
Now my CP is mid-hight and soft, with creamy CM, bbs are slightly sore (not a lot though) and I think my TWW has already began. I know those symptoms don't mean that much as it could be either PMS or PG symptoms but I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.
I will update as days go by about my symptoms.
Possible O - 16th August
Expected AF - 29 August
20th August - Had a cold! Woke up in the middle of the night with stuffy nose and what felt like a fever. Spent all day sneezing and feeling like I'm burning from the inside! O_O
21st August - Woke up at 4am to pee and was a little bit nauseous. In morning bbt was 36.2 C. Cold had completely gone. Bbbs slightly sore. Slight headache
22nd August - Didn't sleep well. Morning bbt was 36.4 C. Metal taste in my mouth and I feel very very gassy. Like A LOT! Also last night felt a pinch in my right ovary, don't know what that was exactly. Also could not sleep. Lastly I seem to be noticing smells much more than before.
23rd August - Slept like a baby! Morning bbt was 36.7 - Later at night cervix has lowered, mid softness... Starting to think AF is on way... :(
24th August - Slept ok. Morning bbt was 36.5 - Cervix this morning was high soft, in the evening still high, soft and creamy white but also stretchy CM.... Have had twinges in uterine area... Could be constipation though... But still... Constipation could be a symtom! Hahaaha!
25th August - Morning bbt was 36.6 - No other symptoms whatsoever.... Had a PG test left from last time, so I couldn't help myself and tested... Got a BFN in my face! Oh well... Since I have absolutely no symptoms, not even for AF, I guess this might have been an anovulatory cycle... I'll just have to wait and see. Cervix last night went back to low and hard.
26th August - Morning bbt was 36.4 - Boobs are only the slightliest sore. Cervix is really low and seems kinda open... Lots and lots of creamy cm... Damn AF seems to be on her way....Also have been having weird cramps all day.... meh.
Those symptoms mean nothing to me though, as I know that the body can be affected a lot by what you want it to do so maybe I am imagining these. Anyways!
Baby Dust to all TWWers! :)
