First flashing smiley

Postby EnglishRose » Fri Mar 03, 2017 9:36 am

Hello ladies..i came off bcp on 15th feb and had a bleed for 5 days from 17th feb..before bcp my cycles were around 33 days give or take a day on random months. So would mean im due to ovulate around Wednesday. Started tracking with the clear blue ovulation with dual hormone and got my first flashing smiley face today so hopefully in track..i know it can take a while to ovulate after coming off the pill but things are looking positive so far..will keep you updated..anyone else due to ovulate around Wednesday next week?

Awww I hope you ovulate, there are a lot of ladies who fall pg after coming off pill.

I feel okay about this cycle but have a long history of chemicals. No problem conceiving it seems but making it stick is a whole different issue. I have three children from previous marriage, DH has two from his first marriage but weI have none together. Doc has me on progesterone after O, so we'll see. If no luck, in these five cycles, we are off to try IVF. Clock is ticking away lol!

I think temps are the best way of telling personally because there is no denying the jump in tempo that indicates ovulation.

How was your bd timing?

Are you from or in England? I am English living in NY.

Oh you've definitely got your timing well covered.

OMG, I'm from the South East too. Ashford in Kent. Was born and raised there, then lived in Australia in my twenties, my thirties in USA and the moved back to UK (Norfolk) now back in the States.

Ugh, I hate the 2ww lol. So boring and it messes with your mind.

Wow that's crazy. I have never seen anyone on here (have been a long time stalker of this board for years before I actually signed up lol) with any connection to my hometown. How cool.

I'm feeling optimistic this cycle but I always do. I think it is mainly due to the fact that we promised ourselves six cycles of trying and then we are off to do IVF....I think that makes me more relaxed about the whole thing. Our timing was good and I used softcups along with a clomid/estrogen protocol that Doc put me on and I have started my progesterone two nights ago along with vit d, folic acid, vit c etc.

How about you? How do you feel?

I am now 6dpo. Had mega bad cramping on 4dpo (WTF lol?) so bad that I couldn't sleep but nothing now, just the usual post O symptoms (sore right boob). I have one test so I need to purchase some more for 14dpo. I'm going to purchase the flat handles FRER's as the new ones suck!

How about you?

Ugh, so yesterday my left nipple was erect for hours but the other one was not lol and now I have discomfort in my right armpit. I'm so tired as well, keep nodding off in recliner at 7.30pm lol.

If it is any consolation to you, my first daughter was conceived whilst I was on the pill, I had missed about two pills I think. So, don't think anything about that. There have been lots of people on here who have conceived first cycle off it too.

I don't know when to test. I ordered some tests from Walmart yesterday, but we're in the throes of a huge snow storm currently so I don't know when they will get here. I will test as soon as I get them. I'm 7dpo today, so anytime from now is when I usually go for it.
