During my TWW I was constantly on this board! I loved reading all of your stories, they really helped me pass the time and feel connected to other women who were feeling all of the same things I am. DH is 27 and I’m 25, we were just married in November of 2015. We were using protection up until April 2016 when we decided to NTNP. I was SO naïve to think, “oh we just won’t use protection and I’ll get pregnant, that’s how it works right?” HA! When I got my period in April I was SHOCKED! Anyway, I’ve been tracking my period since I was 16 years old, I have CLOCKWORK regular cycles. In May I explained to DH how tracking your cycle works, and we BD’d everyday around the day I THOUGHT I ovulated…but during the TWW I just knew I wasn’t pregnant. I just felt NOTHING and I knew it didn’t happen. I was shocked! I thought FOR SURE we had done it that month. So, now comes June…I ALWAYS have very noticeable CM throughout my cycle. And I noticed that the days I had EWCM weren’t matching up with the days my Period Diary app told me I was ovulating…so I decided to bite the bullet and buy some Clearblue digital OPK’s. WELL my app told me I was ovulating on the 11th…turns out I didn’t even get a positive OPK till the 14th. I’m counting ovulation day as June 15th. Which makes total sense as to why I didn’t get a BFP in May, I had the days all wrong…lesson learned BUY THE OPK’S EVEN IF YOU HAVE CLOCKWORK CYCLES!! Now for the fun part…
May 31st-June 4th – Period
June 5th – BD
June 8th – BD
June 12th-14th – BD everyday, Headaches & tons of EWCM—all normal O symptoms for me.
** June 14th Positive OPK (solid smiley face) at 8:00 in the morning and it was negative by that evening so I’m counting June 15th as O day…did not BD that night (6/15) because DH wasn’t feeling well.
O day- Infertile, chunky gross looking CM. (Ew, I know TMI but I wanted to know all of these things during the TWW!)
1 DPO- Okay this is weird and SO GROSS…but I had A LOT of white YI looking discharge ALL DAY and this has never ever happened to me…I wasn’t itchy, irritated or red down there so I was very confused…I thought maybe a YI is coming on?...WEIRD! I used Vagisil wipes throughout the day and it really helped clear it up. Light AF cramping for maybe 2 minutes. By that night the YI looking discharge was gone and I had cloudy EWCM.
2 DPO- Woke up in AM with random itching down there, nothing TOO horrible but definitely enough for me to notice it…but most of the YI looking discharge is GONE and I have more of stretchy, clear looking EWCM. I had a pounding headache all day. Urine smelled REALLY weird today!! My sister babysat her boyfriends little brother today and he was OBSESSED with me. Did not leave my side and kept hugging my belly really tight. Also, my sisters dog (sister lives in the basement apartment of mine & DH house) ran upstairs in the middle of the night and kept trying to jump on my side of the bed!! SO WEIRD!
3 DPO- Lotiony/chunky CM. Got a canker sore. Sore arms. Pinched feeling in one nipple for like 10 seconds. Also, this morning I had a severe cramp in my lower abdomen. DH buys me an iced mocha latte (my fave!) from Starbucks and I threw more than half of it in the garbage because I was just NOT enjoying it one bit. Random rib cage pain…Also, I notice that I’m scratching my scalp a lot. Face feels warm all evening.
4 DPO- Woke up with middle back pain that goes away when I get up and walk around. Underboob pain for a few seconds, but enough to make me notice it. Tingly right nipple again. SNEEZING! Omg the sneezing. Stuffy nose at night. Ate A TON at dinner time without even noticing. Light cramping on and off. No CM.
5 DPO- Woke up with the same back pain that once again goes away once I get up and move. Thick lotiony CM only at night. Itchy scalp and skin AGAIN. Standing in line at the post office today I was SO irritable and annoyed at everyone around me. No boob pain at all!
6 DPO- One sharp pain on left ovary when I stood up quickly. VERY hot at night.
Itchy scalp. Dry/no CM.
7 DPO- Woke up with the same middle back pain that goes away when I walk around. Dry/no CM. Very thirsty. Bloated in the afternoon. Cramps. Weird pinching pain down there. Tingly hands/fingers.
8 DPO- Thighs are sore- like I ran a marathon; I start to feel out because I get this thigh pain during AF sometimes. Back pain in the morning still. No/small amounts of CM. Tingly hands/fingers. Didn’t want to finish breakfast. BFN on Wondfo with FMU (shouldn’t have tested lol). I peed at like 12:00 in the afternoon and had EWCM with two specks of pink blood!...Implantation?
9 DPO- Boobs feel really full (not painful just like they’re filling my bra out more), tiny bit of lotiony CM in morning then nothing all day, Sore throat, gassy even after not eating anything for 4 hours. Brown tinged CM when I wiped at night…officially think I’m out because this happens to me before AF.
