- Wedding: August 2015
I’m going through the TWW for the first time and it’s hard to avoid symptom spotting. I definitely have symptoms that are NOT normal for me, but it’s also my first month off BCP so who knows why my body is reacting this way!
I’m 10 dpo, have lower abdominal cramping (not the same type that I get before AF) and starting two days ago my boobs/nipples are super sore (noticeably more than normal).
Got a BFN this morning – couldn’t resist testing! I’m still 4 days away from when AF should start so we’ll just see what happens. Waiting sucks.
Holy crapalloooo!! I got two positive tests yesterday bees (my CD32)!! I cannot even beleive this it’s so crazy! just got my IUD out at the end of last month, right before my fertile window according to my chart… I mean, we joked about how crazy it would be to get pregnant that first “try” but damn- never thought it would actually happen! No real symptoms either, except a lack of my usual AF symptoms… DH said he thought my boobs were getting bigger, but I figured it was just wishful thinking! I had some really light cramping last night, which appears to be normal, and noticed my boobs are more tender & swollen- otherwise nothings! I guess I need to some research with my insurance company for a new OBGYN (I used Planned Parenthood before now, but their wait is always soo long due to last minute walkins)…
bit of an old thread but feels as good a place as any for an intro. Many years ago I was an active poster around the time of my wedding and remember thinking that I’d have to come back some day to the TTC boards as it always looked like a wonderfully supportive place. So, with a fresh username, the time has come!
I have to admit I was hoping I would quickly become pregnant after going off BCP and hardly have to give a thought to conceiving or wanting to share every detail with women who would understand. Ha. Haha.
I’m just to the end of my first official cycle trying though we went off BCP (after 6.5 years on) in early May before a wonderful last “pre-baby” international trip in which I definitely secretly hoped things would just happen. I wasn’t charting yet but know we hit one fertile day that cycle, though the overall cycle was like 41 days as I came off the hormones. Didn’t test or anything and no dice. Cycle in July came right back down to 32 days which was my norm pre-BCP but we had no BD days during the right times. So, August was full on with OPK tests and BD on -2, -1, 0.
Was supposed to test today (13DPO) or tomorrow but I saw some brown/tan stuff this morning after BD last night. Took the one test I had and a BFN, so I’m expecting full on AF tomorrow. Didn’t think it would bother me as much as it is since it is just the first month. Had thought I was out a week ago as nothing felt “different”, but the last few days noticed an increase in CM that seemed atypical to the dry pre-AF days. And a very high CP. Oh well, definitely broke out some wine and cheese tonight! And can’t stop thinking about what to try differently next time.
Look forward to getting to know everyone though I do hope that all our stays here are short 🙂
