4 Months TTC #1 @ 30

Postby TheMrsBriggs » Fri Jul 15, 2016 5:52 am

So we have been ttc for 4 months now. Every single month I get my hopes up just to be let down. I have charted bbt, used opk, and journal-ed every single symptom. I also use the Ovia app for ttc. And every month we bd on every fertile day and nothing! This month I found an O chart on justmommies.com. It is different than Ovia and showed different fertile days with symptoms I may be having on each day. It is dead on! (Note - I have only a 23 day cycle)

CD - 11 - July 10 - O day - had lots of ewcm and some o pain but nothing out of the ordinary for me.

CD - 12 - July 11 - 1 dpo - lots of ewcm, restless sleep.

CD - 13 - July 12 - 2 dpo - some ewcm, twinges in my right and left side very low. Restless sleep, back ache, head ache.

CD - 14 - July 13 - 3 dpo - school glue cm, twinges in my right and left side alternating, cramps, heavy feeling, pressure very low. Restless sleep, back ache. Super Moody! Stuffy Nose and super tired.

CD - 15 - July 14 - 4 dpo - school glue cm, still having the twinges in both sides, cramps, heavy pressure type feeling very low.Restless sleep, back ache. Super Moody!! Stuffy nose and super tired. Today I am thirstier than usual.

CD - 16 - July 15 - 5 dpo - still having twinges, still heaviness and pressure, still crazy thirsty, super tired even after a good night sleep, stuffy nose. New symptom this morning -- bb's are tender. Not unbearable but definitely noticeable.

I am trying so hard not to read into any of this because I know it is too early. Every month I get my hopes up and then BAM -- AF! This month is different though. I have never had these constant cramps, back ache and low twinges. I am never moody like this -- I have cried over something DH said or didn't say every day since O.

Can someone please shed some light on this for me? Could this finally be my month?

How did you get on after this post?
I completely understand what you mean. I think I keep overanalysing everything and always read into random symptoms. I am trying to conceive #1 after a MC (we had an unplanned pregnancy). If I remember well I only had minor breast soreness and period like cramps a couple days before AF was due, so all very similar to PMS. I didn't think for a second I was pregnant. Now it's completely the other way around! I keep seeing symptoms where there are none...
