Trying for #2 12dpo (updated) 2 days late.

Postby Kendra Spring » Sat Jul 08, 2017 8:38 pm

Hey, all! I've stalked this forum for the last 3 months and finally decided I would post.

I'm an American ex-pat living in Japan and we are trying for our second child. Our son will be 4 in November and was a surprise, so the first time it just happened.

I'm 38 and my husband is 30.

This time I've been trying to get a handle on my cycle. Since going off the pill in January, my cycle went from it's clockwork 28 days to gradually getting shorter. I've had cycles as short as 24 days but my app is averaging it out to 26 days.

The first month we tried (May), I had every symptom in the book. It was REALLY strange. I thought for sure I was pregnant, but got AF on CD27. Last month I had fewer symptoms, but did have ovulation spotting. Unfortunately, we missed that window as my husband wound up in the hospital when I ovulated. I also notice that I don't ovulate on day 14, at least I didn't last month. The spotting was on CDs 16 and 17 last month. AF came on CD26.

This month, I had a cold, so when I thought I was supposed to ovulate (and had tons of CM) I don't think I did. I didn't see EWCM, but was figuring it was close enough because I then saw a temp spike (turns out, I had a cold). On CD16 and 17, I got genuine EWCM and on CD19, my cold dropped into my chest and knocked me flat on my booty. I'm still struggling with bronchitis on CD26, which isn't unusual for bronchitis, but since I've been in Japan, I've managed to kick most colds before they progress this far. Better diet, cleaner air, more exercise, etc.

I'm currently CD26 and according to my app, I'm due for AF tomorrow.

However, and this is the tricky part, my app is counting the last 5 cycles to give me my average, which starts before my cycles started getting shorter. If I adjust it even one month, to count only the last 4, it changes from a 26 day average to a 25 day average, with AF being predicted today.

Ugh . . . I SO wish I was still regular!

Anyway, here is a listing of my symptoms. I'm assuming ovulation occurred on CD17 (Friday June 30) which puts me 9dpo. Since I was sick, BBT is pretty pointless this month.

Some of the "love" indicators count as two, as we often BD after midnight (because of our work schedules) and then again later in the day.

I know some people say too much BDing isn't good because it lowers the sperm count and, at least for my husband, that's bogus. When I got pregnant with my son, we were BDing AT LEAST once a day. Very often twice.

Talking to myself, I guess! Lol It's AF day. No bleeding. More acne, dizziness, and some loose bowels. Same thing happened with my son, so I'm feeling good about this cycle. I had all the period symptoms but without the bleeding.

Thank you! So far, no bleeding. It feels, actually, like my heaviest period day, like one of those days where you have to peel yourself out of bed and you're bleeding like a stuck pig and your bowels are liquid, but nothing. Also, my cervix is still closed. Maybe implantation? I thought AF was at my doorstep for a solid week before I finally vomited while deveining shrimp at work and decided to take a test, though at that point it was basically a formality. I knew already. Sat on the toilet and cried because I didn't think I was ready.

The feeling now, emotionally, is so different and I love my little boy to the moon and back.

I took a test this evening and it was negative. If this is implantation, it's far too early. Or, AF is just being weird. Who knows?

Definitely, and why I'm sure I ovulated late. Still no AF. I've resolved to wait until Friday.

Last night I was ridiculously bloated. I also noticed the veins in my chest were slightly more visible, of course, I'm so pale that it's a very subtle difference. I can always see the veins in my breasts, but in the chest area where my shirt dips down and I have a poor excuse for a tan, I can now also see them.

More gas, bloating and dull cramping today, but no blood.
