I had some trouble uploading the most recent TWW thread because of all the fabulous posts – so I figured it was time to start a new one.
CD: 29, DPO: 10-12.
“Symptoms”: bloating, minor cramping, some in my low back which makes me think AF is on the way. Crying at every sad commercial, movie or story I read.
I was on a regular 28 day cycle until last month when it bounced up to 32 days. AF should be here on Thursday, if I’m at 32 days again. But I’m hoping she either comes early or not at all because it’s our 1-year anniversary this weekend and AF would put a serious cramp in my style.

I should be in the TWW next week but I’ll jump in here and hang out anyway because it’s what I’m thinking about anyhow 🙂 Your symptoms sound really good! Are you taking temps at all? Good luck!

I’ll be on both boards then : )
CD23 and 8DPO. AF due Saturday. Been a little crampy and have had low back pain. Also very tired the past few nights. These symptoms could all be attributable to anything, though, and honestly I get kinda crampy occasionally during my TWW. The only odd thing is that I’ve been constipated which basically never happens to me.
I’m definitely not testing until Friday (12DPO)…but I may not test at all unless AF is late. Last month I tested on 11DPO and was devastated by the BFN and then devastated again when AF showed up right on time. Also, I’m feeling generally pessimistic this month for some reason so don’t have any urge to test.
Good luck to everyone!

I’m glad you did this. I have had ghost pages on that other thread since page 5:)
I’m on CD 36. My average cycle length is 43 days since a miscarriage.
I am 11dpo and I’m having more symptoms than ever. So I’m either pregnant or fantastic at controlling my body through my mind and may need to be committed after this.
Some of them are Too Much Information for sure 🙂 Gas (I never have gas and I am farting up a storm), I have been cramping since 3dpo, my nipples started to get tender yesterday, I have had bouts of dizziness for the last 4 days, yesterday I was so nauseas every time we got in the car, I’m exhausted but can’t sleep, I have increased salivia production, which I didn’t even know was a sign of pregnancy until my Darling Husband told me (I keep spitting and drooling on him LOL), and I have had some strange things happening to my cervical fluid.
It’s a lot and if I’m not pregnant I know I’m going to be super sad this time since everything is pointing to a positive, however with both of my pregnancies that I miscarried I never got a positive pregnancy test until AF was late, so I’m holding off testing now since seeing the BFN makes me upset every time.

@winniewolf: I’m feeling super pessimistic too, so you’re not alone.
I’m not temping yet – I figured I’d wait until we hit cycle 5 because it would give me something I could “do” to make a BFP happen. If I can hold out long enough, I’m going to wait until Sunday to test. But if AF doesn’t come on Thursday, realistically I’ll POAS on Friday. Patience is not my middle name.
@mwitter80: LOL – I hope you don’t have to be committed! And your symptoms sound great. I was farty last night, but attributed it to DH’s cooking. Although he wasn’t farty, and usually it doesn’t take much to set him off!
Oh and I also had creamy CM on Saturday. Although I’m not good at checking it regularly, that seemed weired to me. We’ll see!

Okay, so this is the first time I’ve posted on one of these posts, but here it goes…..
CD 27, not sure DPO.
This cycle has been really weird for me and I’m always very regular. My cycles are usually 24-25 days longs, with the longest one I’ve had in a year being 28 days. I usually ovuluate anywhere from day 8-13, very early in my cycle.
This month, nothing is the same. I had posted a post about this under a pseudo-account, but now just decided to come out and post on my usually account. I feel different, I’m ususally never late. And, my temps are still elevated. Yesterday, I had the highest recorded temp I’ve ever had in a year’s worth of charting, this morning still pretty high for my normal temp area.
I’m either getting ready to have the mother of all periods, which will not be fun for anyone or I’m getting ready to be a mother.
Oh, how I hope it’s the second one. (fingers crossed)
I’m going to try to be strong and not test until later this week. I don’t know if my temp will drop or will continue to stay high. Just on pins and needles until I find out.

@Mrs. Bonnie Blue: fingers crossed for you! good luck!

@mwitter80: Thanks! You, too! I’ve found myself analyzing everything. I didn’t know that increased salvia could be a sign of pregnancy! Yesterday, I had to keep swallowing all during church (while I was singing) because I felt like I was going to drool in front of everyone. I have never had that problem. Then, someone told me I looked like a was totally drained after one service. I’ve been falling asleep on the couch, but then restless when I get to bed. My dog seems to cling more than she has in the past. So many symptoms. Or they could be major PMS symptoms.

I’m on CD 26 and 9 DPO. I was a little disappointed this month b/c according to my chart, we missed our window. I ovulated earlier than normal and we BD the day after…darnit! So I’m also feeling pessimistic…I’ve never had a cycle this short either (since coming off BC), so we’ll see!
@mwitter80: I hope your symptoms are right on! Sticky baby dust to you!

@Mrs. Bonnie Blue: Agreed! I keep telling Darling Husband that I’m either super pregnant or going to having one gigantic nasty AF and he might want to take cover!
@2PeasinaPod: Well that stinks! However, you never know anything is possible. Cycles changing around is the worst!
Post # 12
@mwitter – Sounds like folks are having some good symptoms!!
@2peas – you just never know! maybe your egg hung around for a bit after ovulation. also, great news that you are having a shorter cycle!
@goldi – I think I’m trying to play reverse psychology on myself. the past few months, I was really positive (and last month was convinced I was pregnant). we know how that turned out!
@msbonnie – welcome to the thread and good luck!!

I am officially out. My spotting had stopped yesterday, bought a test last night. Woke up and took the test this morning (BFN) and then later this morning AF started:(
I was unsure, I had so many little things that were similar to my pregnancies with my girls that made me think it might be positive and I was late CD 31 (usually 28)
I guess atleast I know and can move on to the next cycle!

I’m in! I’m 4 or 5 DPO. Can’t remember exactly. My temps are high and a couple have been higher than normal. I also O’d early for me this month on CD18.

GOOD LUCK LADIES!!! I can’t wait to join you all soon… I’m CD8 so hoping to get busy soon!!!!!! 🙂

Today is 14 DPO for me! AF was due today and I have had cramps for the last 3 days but no AF. Temp was still high today so I plan to test in the morning unless AF makes an appearance between now and then. Good Luck to everyone!!
