Good luck Kara, Louise and Andrea! My last tww was manageable but the one before that I was going insane, thinking about it all day everyday (it felt that way). This time I will try to keep myself occupied and distracted... before we started this ttc business I had no idea that there would be so much waiting involved.
I like this post on the 8 stages of the tww. Some funny parts and I can relate:

Good luck again!

Thank you for the positive thoughts, everyone! Unfortunately, I had a big temp drop this morning and another BFN so I'm sure AF will be making an appearance at some point today :-( But, staying positive since it was only our first month trying--on to next month!!
Hope you ladies have a better outcome!! Thinking of you all!! ❤️

Awesome Andrea! Great news! It gives me hope to keep trying. Better luck next month Andrea! Stay motivated! Update on my side: CD16 and BBT hasn't quite peaked. Seems this cycle is later than usual... also wondering if any of you are checking CM if you are still able to determine CM quality the day after intercourse?

Hello I hope everyone is doing well. Update on my side my BBT finally increased in CD 19. Looks like delayed ovulation this cycle or I'm not sure since I had no ewcm for 2 days already. I think our BD window was off this cycle but still hard not to be hopeful :) starting my tww! Good luck to everyone in tww! I hope I will learn to be more patient with this whole process.

Hello everyone! Anyone in the tww now? After excluding a few outliers in my BBT I think I am now at 9 dpo. No special symptoms. I might try and test on Valentine's day just in case :) happy week to everyone!

Hello ladies! Any update from anyone?
AFM I just finished my tww and unfortunately AF showed up today. Oh well... starting cycle #6. I am disappointed but I am committed to not dwell on it and just stay hopeful and move on. I have to go on a business trip during my fertile window but I should be back in time to catch the end of it with my dh. FX that this cycle will be different!
Good luck to everyone!

So sorry that AF showed up :-( but good luck next month--it's great that you're keeping a positive mindset!! I'm back in the TWW, only 5 dpo and trying to hold off on testing until at least 10 dpo--so hard though!!!! I know it's early to have symptoms, but I am so unbelievably tired--I've never experienced this level of fatigue so hopefully it's not just me getting sick! Lol good luck again to all of you ladies!! :-)

It's so hard to just wait and do nothing during the tww! I also spot symptoms even when I know it's too early haha. Did you buy cheap strips? I just ordered some so I can early test like crazy in my next tww :-) Trying something new to keep this ttc business interesting since I could be in it for a while.
Good luck to you! Keep us posted!

Were you able to wait 2 days? Did you test? I received my cheapies today but not ready to test since I'm only on cd5. Need to bd first :) I'll be away on business trip returning at my cd12. It should be perfect window. Oh I hope this cycle is different! It will be 6 month already... I want a baby so bad and it's so hard to be patient.
Baby dust to everyone!

I've been a member here for 4 years mainly blogging and stalking bfp by dpo. I'd like to also introduce myself to the forum. I've been ttc #1 for 7 years (something like 84 cycles, I lost real count). I have PCOS, I do ovulate on my own most of the time but irregularly and apparently "weak ovulation", had 1 very painful cyst rupture 2 years ago and after trying many herbs and natural remedies for many years I finally went to my obgyn for help and I'm on round 2 of clomid. I'm a little puffy around the middle but not overweight and I eat a plant based diet. Those two things probably contribute to me having somewhat ovulation with pcos. I had a chemical pregnancy 7 years ago and a chemical pregnancy the beginning of this month (February) on my first round of clomid. No pregnancies in between and have timed intercourse for 7 years perfectly in correlation with bbt and opk.
I'm 3dpo and not very hopefully this month, timing was good or even too good with way too many bd's.
Good luck ladies.
