Sorry to hear about your sciatica pain Delia. I know many people suffer from it but I've never experienced it so I wouldn't be able give you any help with this :-( I've heard it's a nightmare! I hope maybe some of the others might be able to help out!

Yeah I'm going to keep doing the BD as much as possible but it's frustrating cause I feel like I won't really be able to tell when I'm officially in the TWW. I won't be able tell how many DPO I am for testing etc. I'm just feeling lost with it all!

My cycles are long enough and it's gonna make it worse if I can't tell when I'm ovulating! Stupid ovaries. Lol.

You know, Ro, I'm kind of in the same boat, so maybe that will help make you feel a teeeennnyy, tiny bit better? But maybe not haha. My temps are all over the place and I haven't gotten a positive OPK yet, either. I'm on CD15. I didn't even O last cycle, so who knows. Fucking ovaries! Such a love-hate relationship, hahaha.

K, now I'm confused, ahhaahhaha. Anyway... here are my OPKs. I've only been testing once a day, in the evenings. They're getting darker, at least? Idk.

Yeah, you can... mine was induced by Provera, though. But yes, you can have an anovulatory cycle and still bleed. I would recommend the book "Taking Charge of Your Fertility." It has lots of information on the Fertility Awareness Method (both for prevention and TTC)-- details on charting, CM, cervical position, etc. Very useful!

By the way your OPKs do look to be getting darker. Mine are sooooo faint compared to yours!

Delia, your opks are almost there! I swear!

Ro, sorry you're feeling frustrated. :(

AFM: I keep getting like a pinched nerve or pulled muscle in my back! A few days ago it started in my left shoulder and would shoot up the side of my neck. It was gone yesterday, but today I woke up and it's on my right side underneath my shoulder blade/near my spine. Booo! It hurts and all I want to do it take a hot bath to soak it out, but I've heard it's bad to do that on your TWW.. and also when you get prego.

Maggie, I hope so!! I'm sorry to hear about your shoulder. Also, I'm certainly not a doctor, but I'm pretty sure that that's a myth...taking a hot bath should impact your fertility or the embryo/fetus, once you're pg. A high fever can have negative effects on baby, but an external source (like a bath) doesn't have any adverse effects. Better safe than sorry, though, I suppose. I'd ask your doc?

Ah gosh sorry about your back Delia. I have mild Scoliosis and sleeping with a pillow under the curve of my spine and only one under my head works (and i lay on my back rather than my side which is pretty tricky to maintain the whole night but it got easier after time). But i dont really know anything particular about yours so not sure if that advice will work!! Btw, I totally think you're about the ovulate, those opks look great!

Ro, I reckon maybe you could have ovulated on friday? You had a few good signs, and perhaps you just didnt quite catch the particular moment you would have got a darker opk to match the control line. keep an eye out for some subtle pms symptoms that could indicate it happened! I hope you're with Maggie in the TWW!

Maggie, sorry about your shoulder! I have read mixed things about the hot bath myth, but i'm hoping it's not true as hot baths are literally the BEEEEST and will definitely sort out that shoulder! That and a massage :)

So I'm now 1 day late and my nipples are still burning! it's not my normal breast pain as the tissue itself doesn't actually hurt, it just my nipples (normally the other way round- plus should have stopped by now!!!). I have had white CM again today and lots of cramping on and off. Still don't think I am gonna get my BFP so i feel cautious about testing. Want to wait out my "ovulated late" theory for another day or so. Can't wait to tell you guys whether i am or not instead of playing this guessing game!

Urghhhhhhh man it hurts so bad, cramping is through the rooooof. Why why why!!!

Back to opks this cycle. I'm hoping that we just timed our BD wrong as it was the weekend we moved house and were too tired and busy to BD.

Worrying doesn't help anything but cmon, my next chance to conceive is in April, I thought I'd be like 3-4 months Prego by now! And my friend is about to give birth any day so looks like my ovaries are gonna explode pretty soon lol

Sorry to moan you guys, just don't have anyone else to talk to about it plus I know you'll understand xxx

Time to go do something i couldn't do if I was pregnant, any suggestions? (apart from get drunk because I don't drink!)

Thank you for your support and cyber hugs Xxxxxx
