Hi I’m new to nesting.
Im 27 and me and my partner are on our 3rd cycle of TTC. My cycle is a bit irregular – ranging from 24-35 days. This month I think I ovulated on CD16 (using OPK) and so think I am 11dpo today.
Ive been totally symptom spotting this month – at the weekend I had cramping back and lower abdo pains all day sat and sun and thought I was getting AF. I now have a creamy CM (I usually don’t have any CM so can’t use it for charting) aching breasts and some mild nausea (however I usually get both these last two before AF).
I tested yesterday and got a BFN and I tested today with FMU (though due to bladder issues this is only a 4 hour hold) and it was a BFN – no doubts about it. I feel like I’m out of it this month now as I cant see me getting a BFP in the next few days.
I know now it’s only been 3 months but my irregular periods are making me feel like this is going to be a continuing thing 🙁
sorry for for the long post – just felt like I needed to get things out!

mini-bride: Why don’t you try temping to be more sure of your O date? OPKs never worked for me even though I could tell based on my temps and CM that I was in fact ovulating. Other than that, make sure you are BDing every other day until you O (even better, BD the day or two following O as well just in case your OPK is wrong.)

I work extremely variable shifts (quick changes between days and nights with some 24 hour shifts) so temping was a mess this month (high temps if I slept in the day or was on a 24hr ) – I’m going to try again and see if I can find a way to make it work better!

Do you use a cycle tracker at all? I would look at some natural viatamins to help you regulate. I have always had irregular periods, and i have recently started taking Estrosmart(all natural horomone balancer) and my periods have been regular. You shoudl research this an dhcek out the reviews… it is amazing!!

mini-bride: have your cycles always been this all over the place or have you recebtly come off bc? If you haven’t been on bc I’d recommend getting your bloods done with your gp just to make sure hormone levels are ok. And just to reassure you, approx 70% get pregnant within six months so there’s every chance youre going to see your bfp sooner rather than later.
