We've got some family stuff going on right now so DH and I decided to take a more relaxed approach this cycle. I've been very regular the past few cycles, always Oing around CD 14 or 15 so I figured going by my CM would be good enough during this already stressful time. Based on my past cycles I would being Oing either today or tomorrow, but yesterday I had more EWCM than I've ever had and then nothing today so I'm wondering if O was yesterday. Either way, with everything going on and DH getting sick over the weekend we didn't get to BD much so I don't think we have good chances this cycle.

Sometimes taking the laid back approach works wonders... when was the last time you BD? Sperm lives up to 5 days swimming in there ...

I'm really hoping that's the case for us! Actually that's what happened with our first, we tried super hard for about 4 months and then decided to take a month off and that's when I got pregnant lol. The last time we BD'd was Friday and I think I might have O'd on Sunday, so I guess it's still possible!

I feel like my mind is playing tricks on me. I've been randomly nauseous (almost like car sick feeling), I've been having trouble sleeping, and I just got a random ache in my boobs. Even if I did O last sunday I'd only be 6 dpo, so WAY WAY too early for any kind of pregnancy related symptoms. It's just frustrating because this is usually how I feel right around the 5-6 week mark when I am pregnant. I came down with a nasty stomach bug late in the evening on what I think was 1 dpo, so I'm sure my gut is still just off from that, it's just so hard not to get my hopes up!

Best of luck to you Carrotk! I felt lightheadedness 8dpo. But that was the first and only thing I had.

I just got back from my first prenatal appointment. Im 6weeks and 1 day. Everything looked perfect. Baby's heartbeat was 118 and very visable in the ultrasound. Hope everyone else is doing great this cycle.

Congrats KC! So happy to hear your and baby are doing well!

I'm currently around 10 dpo and got a BFN this morning. My LP is only 12 days soI'm not feeling very optimistic. Ugh an add keeps making the page jump around making it very frustrating to comment!

Not to dissuade you, carrotk, but I feel the same some months in the second half of my cycle. I was convinced I was pregnant. Only for a very bad disappointment :(

Hope it's not the case for you.

I'm super relaxed this TWW for whatever reason. I was testing with OPK's and I never got a positive! So I feel like I don't even have a shot at being pregnant. I am CD 20/21 today. AF is due on CD 26/27.

Hi ladies!!

How are you all? I took some time out, dealt with my emotions over the chemical and I am back firmly in the TWW :omg: :rofl:

KC - I am so glad to you appointment went well! So so happy for you. Whens your next app? Oh you heard the heartbeat :D :D

Sarah - today is 27th in Oz.. has AF showed up? I hope not. I really don't know when I am going to test, i am currently only 4DPO. SUPER early, have had 1 vivid pregnancy dream Friday night, but from everything that I've read we cant get any symptoms until implantation has occurred :| and this rings true with my pregnancy last month..

How are you doing Carrotk, I think you must be around 14/15DPO now? and Sulica?

So i O'd a touch later this cycle. Didnt get my positive OPK until CD19 and 20. We BD'd CD17, 90 and 20. It was definitely a different feeling this month, as in my BF felt a bit pressured so we didnt really enjoy my fertile week at all. I don't think i'm going to communicate as much with him about where i'm up to - It really depends on what mood he is. I think it was just an off week :| we still got the job done though, and I hope we BD'd enough. How do you ladies manage this part of TTC? Do you tell your hubbies everything and do they ever feel like its a bit of a chore?

So glad to touch base with you lovely ladies again

Hey Babybassy! Thanks for checking in with all of us! Glad/not glad to see you back in the TWW :roll:

I hear you about the pressure. It starts to feel like work! Like ughh I just wanted to know when I O'd so we could stop BDing already! But my tests never became positive :(
I tell my DH some stuff but he is so so so not into it. He tries lol He definitely doesn't feel the pressure like I do to BD all the time and get the timing right. So I don't tell him that part, I just let him think I'm feeling extra randy.

AF is due for me on March 3rd. I am roughly 7 DPO right now. I did OPK testing this month but the tests were duds. They were stark white most of the time, with two days of faint lines. I think the faint lines may have been my surge, which was Feb 17/18, so I probably O'd Feb 19/20.

I tested today with FMu and it was stark white, not even a squinter. I feel exactly as I would for this time of the month as AF approaches so I actually think I am totally out. But I will test each morning up until AF is due anyway :D

Hey Sarah,
Yes thats what happened end of last week - I kept OPK testing after they started to fade, basically to make sure that my surge was over and we didnt have to keep BDing!! Hm yeah I think next cycle I will just try to put the moves on the BF.. he will probably put 2 & 2 together though, and know whats up :rofl:

Last month, I never got what they call a 'positive OPK' - mine never got as dark as the control line. But hey - I must have O'd! So I think some women just dont get the really dark lines. Doesn't necessarily mean you arent ovulating though. This month was my first ever blazing positive. It was definitely as dark as the control line - first time its ever happened.

You seem pretty relaxed about this cycle, its nice to see =) I do wish my cycles were shorter! Mine are around 33-35 days. Such a long time to wait until the next fertile window :cry:

My name is April by the way =)

Nice to "meet" you, April. I love that name! I'm Sarah, very original from my username haha.

I'm pretty relaxed considering I don't think I"m pregnant lol. I just feel my period coming, just like normal. Achey breasts, some cramps, foul mood, tired...just like PMS every month. And every month I thought these were preg symptoms! But nope, now I know better.

Still doesn't stop me from POAS every day.

They might know what's up, but they won't say anything. I put my legs up on the wall after we BD and he just chuckles.

Here's FMU this am. Guessing I am about 7 dpo. What do you think?

And carrotk, what's the update?????
