Yay!! Hi Krisssaten!!

I'm doing well! Having some weird twinges on my left side. Hoping it's implantation. I just went to google to read all about it lol.

How long have you been ttc? Is it for #1?

Omg I have been doing the same thing! Since about 4-5 dpo most of the symptoms I had during ovulation like cramping and sore bbs went away, and then yesterday afternoon bam, cramping on the same side I think I ovulated from which felt almost stabby at times, then it reduced to a dull ache towards the evening, and I was thinking maybe a cyst? But then I was laying in bed about to fall asleep and I felt what can best be described as a pin poking into where I imagine my uterus is? Same side as the cramping, my right side, but not so far over by the ovary, it was like the inner part of my hip area, lower down towards the groin/pubic area. It felt like a poking/pulling for about an hour and this morning (tmi sorry) I'm so gassy! It's annoying lol But I still feel a pulling in that same spot. So I've been googling my brains out.

Yes we are TTC #1 since almost two years ago now. I have pcos/insulin resistance and I've been working on losing weight and eating better in hopes of getting my BFP naturally. If I need a HSG and clomid so be it, but I wanted to be able to say I did everything I could first yknow? So we shall see!

How about you, TTC #1?? I hope your pinching is implantation!

Yes!! that sounds so similar to what I have going on! Same side I felt my ovulation pain. I had such noticeable ovulation pain that I thought it was a cyst as well or a uti! Then the day I got my big temp shift it stopped lol.

We have been ttc for #1 for almost 2 years as well!! So similiar. And I fully understand your hesitation with clomid and the hsg. I felt that way for a while but then gave in to clomid Dec/January last... i guess this year. I only did 2 rounds of the clomid because I felt like it didn't do much and my doc didn't monitor me on it. I still have the prescription for the 3rd round but haven't take it. I just had my HSG last month actually. I went to see a specialist and she recommended it. Not as bad as I thought and she said I should have an increased chance these next two months so bonus!

Oh wow, so much in common! It's kind of nice to not be alone in this way, even though it stinks we're having a hard time! I have an order for an HSG from spring, but that's when I decided to hold off on getting any more tests until I worked on my health a bit. If this turns out to not be my month I think I may call for a new order and try to schedule a HSG ASAP. My ob did mention some people finally get a BFP after one, since the dye tends to clean you out a bit! That would be amazing if that's what happened for you! :D

This pinching thing has come on with so much bloating and gas, I'm a sad puppy rn. Think I'm going to pop a gas X and see if it helps. Did that happen with you, too? I thought it was the gas I was feeling at first actually. But the pinching was nowhere near that. It's driving me nuts though lol

Yes, I would recommend the HSG because at the least it does clean you out. My right tube for instance I think needed some cleaning because at first the dye did come out but when she went back to it, it did! And believe me, I was a nervous a wreck going in to it, but it wasn't bad at all!

I'm not having gas really, well no maybe last night I was actually lol, but my stomach is upset today. I thought the same thing, maybe the pinching is because of my stomach being upset. It's very rumbly.

This is interesting that we are having such close symptoms!

I'm also really tired. I only had about a half cup of coffee. I wanted to make another half cup but decided I should make some tea that has less caffeine in it. Only I'm out of green tea so I got stuck with this raspberry leaf tea that's caffeine free! ugh. On the bright side, this is tea is suppose to be good for your uterus so maybe that will help that bean implant. FX FX FX FX FX!

Oh wow, gosh we are really mirroring a little bit aren't we?!

For a couple of hours now I've been feeling more things. I think the gas X helped yet I still feel bloated esp on that right side. I was even googling appendicitis symptoms just to be sure! I've had two cups of coffee today and usually I'm good - I don't nap ever. I don't get tired until 930-10 pm. I swear I could sleep right now if I let myself. I'm suddenly so tired. And my lower back on the right side has started to hurt over the last 40 mins or so. And I'm feeling light headed and nauseous on and off.

These are all VERY unusual for me. I don't even get this way right before or during AF. So I'm pretty suspicious. And also cranky because none of this is obviously pleasant. Very interested to see if you have any of these as well!

Does raspberry leaf tea actually taste like raspberry?? I've never had it and I'm not a huge tea person but I keep hearing great things about it!

That is so crazy krissaten! this will be interesting if we both have the same symptoms and BFPs!!

Raspberry leaf tea has a mellow taste, like green tea. Not very raspberry at all actually haha. I like it because it also helps soothe cramps.

Yeah definitely keep me updated! Today has been a roller coaster. For a while it almost felt like I was coming down with something. And then it stopped. Wtf!

I'm going to add that tea to my shopping list for next week. I love green tea and anything that helps with cramps is A-ok for me lol Thanks for the info :)

So tonight I'm sitting here watching tv and got more twinges in my left side. eek! I wish I could tell from my chart what day I O'd.

Eeeee! Sounds promising! I'm starting to feel anxious to test but I'm holding strong lol The twinges give me hope for us!

I don't chart no :( If this isn't my month I think I'll start though. I did take my temp today twice given how randomly awful I felt. 98.5 and 98.9. I have always, since childhood, ran a normal 97.8 temp. I remember my doctors being a little baffled by it and taking my temp multiple times, and also having trouble diagnosing me when I was sick because what seemed like a normal temp was a low fever for me. So for me, those are high. I have never temped or charted so I'm not positive what that would mean.

Hi there!

I have come to tww.com many times in the past, but this is my first post. I am 7 (??) dpo I think?? I didn't take a test, but I just based it on ovulation symptoms. My dh and I have been off and on ttc for over a few years, a few months at a time, and never "not trying". We have started again these past 3 months. I have been going to a naturopathic doctor (I used to work for him as well) to prepare my bod the past 6+ months. I am currently taking "Pregnancy Prep" herb, rotating oils for hormone balancing, optimizing thyroid function with a homeopathic, and taking the amazing herb VITEX. So here I wait while simultaneously going a bit bonkers in my tww. I swear, the morning I take a pregnancy test I start my period within hours. It's uncanny.... and cruel. So I always dread taking a test.

As for my symptoms, the day or two after O, I felt amazingly depressed, like out of my mind depressed -- I've never felt that bad in my life. I also nearly fainted, and was nauseated x 2 days. Then a few days later I had cramps like af was coming, but this was only mid-cycle so I was HOPING for some ib, but nothing. I also felt like I had a boggy uterus! Like I felt full down there. Now the symptoms have tapered off and I feel relatively normal, with occasional light cramps. Maybe a bit tired and hungrier, but that could be just some hormones balancing out still??

Anyway, nice to meet you. Look forward to sharing in the wait!

Hi ladies, welcome! I believe I'm 8dpo, although I think I'm really only 7.

Kris - It's hard to tell with out a consistent number of temps. I highly recommend temping, gives you sooo much information about your body and actually takes a lot of stress out because you're not guessing what dpo you are and if you ovulated. But a higher temp occurs after ovulation, then if your temp remains elevated for 18 dpo (days past ovulation) you're most likely pregnant. It drops right before AF shows, so it also gives you a warning. Mosty luteal phases... the phase after ovulation is usually like 12-15 days.

Megan - - welcome! Sorry you felt so depressed after O! How are you feeling now? I took vitex for about a month or two but didn't really feel a difference I did notice my temps for steady. this month I'm on coq10 and pregnitude and my temps were the best I've seen and I felt great! Which meant it was doing something. good luck to you!!

Hope - welcome as well! When do you usually test? I already have the urge to poast. I think I will wait until Friday, 10dpo. Although I should really wait until Sunday or Monday if I can! Maybe we can try and keep each other from testing too early lol.
