New, Excited, and Scared---2 DPO Looking for cycle buddies

Category: Trying to Conceive - TTC My First Child
Posted by pinkstarangel03 » May. 9, 2012 5:36pm

Hi all, my name is Kristen! I'm 27 years old and I'm 2 DPO. My husband and I just began trying during my last cycle. We have been talking about getting pregnant for a long time but just now started to try. I'm very excited to be TTC but it's a little scarey too. It's like you are on a roller coaster and you are at the top of the first big hill, you're excited to be on the ride but also a little nervous of whats about to happen. I hoping to find a cycle buddy to talk to about the roller coaster of emotions.

Hi Kristen! I'm Emily (28). I'm new here, 2 DPO, and would love to be your cycle buddy. We've been off BC since February, but I think this is our first "real" cycle TTC.

Hello Kristen & Emily! I am also 2 dpo and would love to have some cycle buddies! My name is Nicole, I'm 32 and dh is 35. I have a dd that turns 3 in Sept. We started ttc 1 yr ago. We got pg in July and found out we lost the baby at our 12 week appt on Sept 27th. I had some complications with the D&C and it took almost 4 months to finally be done then another 3 months to get a "normal" cycle. So this is my 1st month ttc since the m/c. Nervous and excited! Mostly excited right now, trying not to let the past scare me.

What days are you two going to start testing?

Hi Kristen, Emily, & Nicole!

I'm also 2DPO. I'm 32 years old and my husband and I began trying at the start of my last cycle. After soooo many years on birth control, it's been exciting to get in touch with my body's natural rhythms. Looking forward to finding some cycle buddies to share the experience with. :)

Hi everyone!

I'm Kim, and only 1DPO today, but would love to join you guys.

I'm 29 and DH is 38. We're in our 3rd month of TTC#1. Desperately hoping this is our month, especially as DH is spending a month abroad for work in June and we don't want to have a break from TTC forced on us!

I know what you mean about it being an emotional rollercoaster... I'm a total control freak, so all the BBT charting and POAS has been a great distraction for me, but not knowing what's coming up ahead is really scary.

Fingers crossed for us all this month!

Hello all! I'm excited to get to talk to you all. I plan on taking my first test ever in 9 days! I've been off BC since december and I feel like my cycle is pretty regular now so I have done any charting or anything yet.

How is everyone else feeling? I'm just nervous more than anything. I'm TTC #1, how long did it take for you moms with more than one to concive?

Hello ladies!

I am going to make this short because I'm expecting company any second now.

Kat: I hear ya on discovering your "natural rhythms". It kinda fascinating actually. I love reading books about how are bodies work, etc.

Tessa: Hello! Speaking of books, I just was talking with a client today who was telling me how she tried for a girl and it worked. She read a book about it. Can't remember the name though. Her and her dh were on a specific diet, only bd at certain times and she actually douched with a watered down vinegar?! Never heard of the vinegar part! Apparently it kills off of "male sperms".

Kim: Ya this whole ttc thing really shows you how out of control you are. So it's nice to have some things we can do like bbt, checking cervix & cm. It gives you some handle on it.

Kristen: I'm feeling pretty anxious and excited! With my dd, I got pg the 1st month we were actively ttc. The 2nd time with my m/c I got pg the 3rd month. Hopefully this time it happens right away! I bought some cheap dollar store tests, so I think I'll start testing on 9 dpo. What about everyone else?

I'm trying to hold out on testing until 14 dpo but we'll see how I do on waiting, lol! I don't want to test too early and not know for sure. My dh travels for work and doesn't come home until 10 dpo and I promised him I wouldn't test with out him but it's going to be hard to wait after he gets home.

I really don't feel any different yet if things are happening yet or not I don't know. How is everyone else feeling? Any symtoms yet? For those with kids already how early did you start to experience syptoms?

I hope it's a lucky month for all of us! I'll keep updating in this post and I hope all of you do too!

No symptoms yet (4dpo), but I'm trying to to obsess too much over it. Ha! "Trying" is the operative word here. We'll see how that goes.

Going to keep myself busy with some relaxing weekend activities to distract my mind. The TWW will be over before we know it (I hope).

Yeah I'm trying to not over thing it either. It's hard when you're gassy and you can't help to think maybe I'm pregnat or it's the chinese I had for lunch. I have a busy weekend planned so I up it helps keep my mind off of it for now.

HAVE A GREAT MOTHER'S DAY EVERYONE!!!

Hello ladies!

So I just noticed that when I 1st posted I said I was 2 dpo. I was actually 3. My ticker was off for a couple days, but I fixed it. So that makes today 5 dpo. Anyone else doing bbt?

With my dd I think I started getting symptoms about 5 days before period. I had increased cm, gassy and heartburn. But no tender bbs or nausea until I was about 5 or 6 week pg. Years before dh, I was pregnant, which ended in a m/c and my 1st symptoms was super soar bbs and that was a few days before period. I can't recall any other symptoms but I was also not ttc so I wasn't really looking. But with this last pg, that ended in m/c I had the same symptoms as with my dd and around the same time.

So I'm not expecting symptoms for a least a few days, but I can't help but think about it with everything. I think I'll start testing around 9 or 10 dpo. With my dd I got my bfp at 10dpo. This last time was 12 dpo. I know 9 or 10 is early but I've got about 8 dollar store tests so I can do one every day! POAS addict?! Yup!

Hi Nicole,

I'm doing bbt, but for the past couple of months I haven't had too much luck with it even though I'm testing right when I wake up in the morning (at the same time). I have a digital bbt thermometer; but I can perform two tests 20 to 30 seconds apart and the temperature can vary by .5 to .8 degrees. Bizarre. I may just have erratic temperatures. I'm still testing though...because it gives me something to add to the chart every day. :)

I need to find out where all you ladies are getting the Dollar Store tests. I've been buying the 3-pack Clear Blue or First Response tests from Walgreens and I think they run about $6 per test.

Hi ladies,

Hope everyone's having a good weekend, especially with it being Mothers' Day for lots of you (in the UK we celebrated Mothers' Day back in March!) - it must make it even harder to keep yourself distracted from TTC!

I've actually been having some weird symptoms... I keep telling myself it's way too early for anything to be happening (I'm 4dpo), but the last 24hrs I've been soooo hungry! Even half an hour after a big meal I've been feeling ravenous, you know like that gnawing feeling in your stomach when you've not eaten in ages? I actually woke up at 5am, feeling so hungry it made me nauseous! I don't want to read too much into it, obviously, but it's hard not to when there's that little voice saying "you could be pregnant" lol! Never have I wanted to feel sick so much!

Anyway, I'm trying to hold off testing until at least 10dpo, if I can make it that long. I buy the cheapie Internet tests (like �£3 - about $5 I think - for 15 from Amazon) as I'm such a POAS-addict, but I have a FRER saved for 14dpo :)

I had a lovely message from my sister today, too - she just had her 2nd DD last month after 3 years of trying, so I'm totally in awe of her right now... 3 months and already I'm going crazy!

Kat - you should always take your very first temp, it will change very quickly as you wake up in the morning, so it's normal to get that variation in temps even only 30secs apart. It's a chemical thing as your body wakes up. I have my DH take my temp for me so I don't even have to move (lol, any excuse to be lazy!), but I notice a difference in my temp on the mornings I feel more "awake". So long as you do it the same way, at the same time every day, and as soon as you wake up, before even getting out of bed, you should be ok. There's some great info on the FertilityFriend website for BBT charting :)

Thinking of you all!


Kim xx

Hello all!!! I hope everyone had a great weekend and mother's day.

Today 7dpo for me...it feels good to know I'm half way done with my tww :)

How is everyone feeling? Any symtoms yet? How soon is everyone planning to start testing? I almost bought some tests at walmart last night...it was really hard not to get them, lol.

I've been feeling pretty normal, trying to not over think any symptoms. I did cry yesterday for no good reason other than just feeling anxious about upcoming testing, and my dh is out of town. Which makes waiting hard without him here to talk to. I'm gald I found this forum and all you to talk to...it makes me feel less crazy!

Still no real symptoms yet. Feeling a little bloated but that's probably from all the cake and fatty food I ate over Mother's Day weekend. Might also explain a sudden acne breakout. I swear, my skin was great when I was on the pill -- hopefully this is just a temporary flare-up. I'd hate to revisit the skin of my teenage years.

Trying not to think about symptoms too much...although it's hard. Luckily I don't have any pregnancy tests in the house...otherwise I'd probably be testing every morning. ;)

Hello ladies! Hope everyone had a good weekend! Mine was fun but busy. Now I'm being super lazy and recovering from it. Plus I woke up at 3:50 am this morning and couldn't go back to sleep?! So annoying!

Kat: yes the bbt is kinda tricky. It isn't totally accurate if you can't get it at the same time, do it the same way and there are no factors changing the temp like how cool the room is or if you're feeling sick. So it's a little obnoxious but if you get used to it, it really does help you track where you are in the cycle. Or a least confirm what you think.

I get my tests from the Dollar Tree. Not sure if they have them everywhere though? I live in Washington State.

Tessa: Wow, you have so much more self control then me! There is no way I can make it to 14 dpo! I am planning to wait till 9 or 10, but don't be shocked if its 8 dpo!

Kristen: I'm not sure if its symptoms are not. But I've been really gassy and bloated. I had most cramping on days 5 & 6 and little bits here and there. Hoping that was implantation cramping. If so testing in a couple should show up! But then again, the cramping could be from being gassy and the gassy could be from all the naughty food I've consumed lately! What day are you testing?

Kim: I hope those symptoms are it!!!

Emily and binkibdatqt4skii: how are you doing?

THE WAIT IS DRIVING ME CRAZY, LOL!!!!

Nicole- I orginally planned on testing 14dpo which would be monday but I decided that monday was a bad day and moved it to Sunday. I have a super busy week at work so I am just trying to focus on that and not testing. Let us all know when you test :) I have my fingers crossed for you!!!

Kim and Nicole- Symptom wise I have also been gassy but I haven't ate the best lately either. I've had some mild cramps ever since O they come and go but I feel them everyday. I have been super tired the past few days but I've been really busy too. I think mostly I am just feeling the stress of the wait more than anything.

I'm happy to be in the second half of TWW! I know some of you plan on starting to test soon!!! I bet you alll are as excited and nervous as I am :) I wish everyone the best of luck and I hope to hear from you all soon!

Hello ladies! So yesterday I was feeling a lot more symptoms: sensitive bbs, cramping, soar back, & super tired. So I caved and took a test in the early evening. I got a super faint line, so I took another one and it looked the same. So this morning I took 2 more, they looked the same as yesterday, pink line that came up right away but so faint. So I don't really know what to think yet. I actually felt like puking while I was at work. So I ran to the store and got some cracker then I felt better. I am still only 9 dpo so I'm quite early still. But with all this I'm feeling quite hopeful!

My test # is #25745 if you want to check it out.

How about you girls? Any new symptoms? Anyone caved like me?
