Cycle day 10...Which TWW is worse?!

Category: Trying to Conceive - TTC My First Child
Posted by Jean M. » May. 16, 2012 1:57pm

Ugh! I am on day 10 of my cycle and am going insane waiting for ovulation! This is my first round on femara and is also my first month of obsessively thinking about getting pregnant. So which wait is the worst? I feel like once the ovulation wait is over a whole new level of crazed waiting will begin. Anyone else around cycle day 10 who wants to ride this out together?

Jean,

I'm not quite in the same waiting period as you (I'm one week into the "TWW" period), but I thought I would still comment on my experience thus far. My husband and I started to seriously discuss having children back in December. I made myself wait until May to start trying to conceive my first child, just because I didn't want to have a child born around the holidays -- no one I know who has a holiday birthday enjoys it. I'm also a teacher, so I wanted to try and keep the birth a little closer to the spring. I am currently in the "TWW" and don't find it quite so bad. This website makes it kind of fun, as you can chart your "symptoms" and make yourself belive that you could in fact be pregnant. I found that waiting for May to come around was the worst and I actually started feeling a little depressed in February. I'm pretty certain that I am pregnant, but I'll get back to you on how I feel overall if that is not the case. Good luck waiting for ovulation!

-Diana

the wait to ovulate SUCKS! I totally agree with you. I have a long cycle and a 3 week follicular phase.

3dpo now so in the slightly more interesting 2WW now ha ha

lol, personally I think the tww AFTER ovulation is the worst!!!! I start symptom spotting and wondering WHEN I'll get the BFP and then heartbroken when I don't... I HATE the TWW!!!!

Hey ladies I am on CD 11 and I am tired of waiting! At least I get to POAS every day. This was my first cycle with clomid and that was no fun! How are you ladies passing the time?? I have been gardening and doing activities with me DS and DD! Also spring cleaning and baking like crazy!

Hello fellow waiters! Did my first OPK last night. Nothing yet.

Ellekayejaye--has a doctor figured out why you have such long cycles? My problem is that I don't ovulate on my own, which is probably why this wait is so difficult. I have no idea if the medicine will work!

Mrsswift--I haven't tried clomid before but have heard the side effects can be pretty tough! How's it going?

Lyric36, Diana, redshadoe & all....sending you best wishes and a BFP this month!

Now let's all go POAS and over analyze ever slight twinge, ache, or feeling we have!!

The 5 days I was on it was very hard but I also lost my aunt that week and the same day she passed my brother and sister-n-law had a baby and it was my birthday and mothers day! Im still sad but its not like it was when I was actually taking them! I was so depressed and wanted to walk in front of a bus! Im still a little bloated from the clomid and im VERY dry down below but those are also because of the clomid other than that all is well! Im on CD 12 today and getting 2 lines on every OPK!

@mrsswift keeping you in my very sorry for your loss. Have you tried mucinex or preseed for dryness? i've never taken clomid but read alot of stories on how it can dry you up.

@elle doctors always want us to wait for something as if we haven't waited long enough!! hang in there and wishing you lots of luck on your testing.

@jeanm thanx so much and wishing you


AFM: took your advice jeanm and poas....NEGATIVE but i usually ovulate on cd11 or 12 and im only cd9

Mrsswift---I'm so sorry to hear about your loss and all of the stress! That is bad enough without adding crazy hormones to the mix. Hopefully you will get your BFP this month and it will all be worth it!

Elle---ugh to waiting for more tests! Please keep us informed as you learn more.

Lyric-- keep at it!

I tested again tonight and still nothing. But am feeling twinges so I am hoping the follicles are growing.

I hope you all have a relaxing and fun weekend! I'm going to try to stop obsessing, although seeing my pregnant sister in law probably won't help. Grrrrrrrrr!

@elle g'mornin wishing you & hubby lots of @ testing!!

@mrsswift Wow $30??? for me that's preseed & ovulation strips. My bf would have a fit. i would probably forget it as well if I wasn't the one seducing HIM. I pull it out & rub it on him while laying in bed watching tv :-)

AFM:I'm still waiting to O...i only test around 230pm (hope that a good time seeing how its in the afternoon spot) so im watching the . Felt o cramping yesterday hopefully its a good sign but my temps (pre o) are kinda high so i don't know but that something will happen soon.

HAPPY FRIDAY LADIES

@mrsswift ummm...i don't think i o'd yet i have a cd6 opk posted on here looks almost to me to be a positive (but thinking too early to o) so as of now im still waiting to o hopefully today or tomorrow. My ticker says today but we shall see Yea the softcups look very intimidating but after sex or using preseed it glides in easily but im still trying to get the hang of it.

@elle happy weekend hope your keeping yourself busy!!!!
