Aw sorry to hear you got a bfn, but as everyone says 'its not over til af shows' ... im finding everything odd this past cycle and im thinking maybe its because im ttc that everything has gone a bit crazy. Like i got random cramps mid cycle then my af was super heavy for the first two days then stopped now its started again... so strange, it makes it harder to tell whats going on when my body plays tricks on me.. hopefully next month ill get a clear indication of O fx

Hope you get either get AF soon or you are pregnant! :)

Hi fraggle! Yes the body can soo play tricks. My husband thinks it's so funny when I think every little symptom means I'm pregnant haha have to laugh about it!
I'm still in the dark over here no sign of AF, Creamy cm has increased, 3 BFN and now FF has really kicked me out based on low and fluctuating temps. Totally at a loss. I am on CD 37!! Wish I had some answers :/

Fx for you to get a clear O for this cycle!!!

Well still waiting...... Called Dr they said they'll do a blood test if I don't see anything in a week. How is this cycle going for you? In the 2ww yet?

I'm not sure if any of you ladies are still around since it's been a couple months since the last post. I'm new to the boards and my DH and I are TTC #1 month 1. I'm 6 dpo and the wait is killing me. :) I've been reading everything I can get my hands on, but I would love to have other people to talk to going through the same thing! :)

Thank you! The wedding was lots of fun but I am glad the whole thing is over so I can finally breathe again. How did your first cycle go, have you tested yet?

Hey justxher

Sorry for the late reply. I tested up to around a day or so before I got AF.

I ended up getting AF on Valentines day which was really rough. I also ended up with gastro a few days before AF which I thought could have been early pregnancy vomiting. I mean what are the chances one would get a stomach bug in the TWW only a few days before AF was due on the first cycle? Considering I have only had a handful of stomach bugs in my whole adult life I consider this pretty rotten timing

Currently I am on cycle #2 now and on CD 14 (not counting valentines day as it was only spotting). Having a few confusions with OPK (see my other post under ovulation) but basically I cannot get a positive on first response OPK but have got 'high fertility' today and yesterday (CD 13, 14) on clearblue digital. Having some very small localised cramping sharp on my RHS. Typically get them there mid cycle. We BD today (CD 14) and depending on if I get solid smiley on clearblue will either BD again Sunday night or Monday

Any updates with you?

Hi everyone! Well, no luck for us yet since my first post on here. We're on cycle #3 now (ttc #1) and I'm 5 dpo. We finally got the timing down this month (BD day before O, day of O, and the day after just to be on the safe side), so I'm much more hopeful for that BFP than I have been. For some reason the Clear Blue Digital Advanced is just not working for me. It gave me the first high reading on O day, and a peak on the day after!! Thank goodness I've gotten my CM patterns down pat, and have been temping, so I was able to catch it instead of relying on the monitor. DH is in the military and has a short tdy this month, but he'll be coming back in town in a few weeks to celebrate our 2 year anniversary early since he'll be gone that actual day. I'm going to wait so we can see the test results together when he gets home on the 14th, but the wait is going to killlll me! If we see that BFP it'll be the best anniversary present ever! :)

How is everyone else doing? Baby dust to all!

Hi phDer, sorry to hear you were sick this month, that must really suck to have legitimate symptoms (that can't be blamed on AF) and get your hopes up only to get your AF a few days later. But don't get discouraged, it's only the first month, I don't think too many people get pregnant on their first month trying.

I saw your thread in the ovulation section, I wouldn't worry so much about the O day, if you are BDing every other day during the fertile window then there's no way you'll miss it. I do think you should do another OPK today as the LH surge usually happens later in the day and not in the morning, so maybe the flashing smiley from this morning will turn in a solid smiley this evening. If you really want to certain about O day then I think you should try temping, I don't do it myself but people say it is the only way to confirm ovulation because sometimes your body gears up to O but does not actually O until several days later. I also had a good 3 days of positive OPKs last month which was confusing but on the fourth day I got a negative and I think that was 1 DPO based on when AF came that month.

I'm now on cycle 2 now, CD9, waiting to ovulate in about 5 days. This month we are trying out Preseed, I have read really good things about it, and it's kind of nice to have when you're BDing so much lol. I have a good feeling about this month, can't wait to test lol
