3DPO

Category: Two Week Wait - General Chatter
Posted by lilypad09 » Dec. 13, 2011 9:06am

I'm currently 3DPO and absolutely hate the TWW! Was just wondering if there was anyone out there going through the same thing.

YES!!! I am currently 4dpo (I think) and am now second guessing everything I so painstakingly charted this month!!! I got three full days of positive OPK's this month and it is just really throwing me off...then my temp only just spiked today 3-4 days after I thought I ovulated...I thought it was supposed to spike sooner than that...BUT this is only my first month charting BBT and I have missed some days and really shouldn't rely on that!!!

I am just driving myself INSANE...and to top it all off I have a baby shower at work today and totally stood in the baby aisle last night hoping and wishing...LOL :)

Good luck to both of us...but I am here if you want a cycle buddy!!! :)

I would love a cycle buddy! And I had the exact thing happen to me...three full days of positive OPKs!! The darkest one was the cycle day in the middle. I read it can take up to 2 days after the LAST positive to ovulate. I'm sure all your charting is fine. I totally second guessed myself on two of the temps. And, I know how you feel with the shower. Two of my close friends just found out they are pregnant. I m/c four months ago and this is our first cycle trying again, so I'm really nervous and just hoping it works out. This is my first time BBT charting as well. I enjoy it though. It's neat to see your body functioning properly. Well, good luck to you and keep me posted! I know it's early but are you having any symptoms?

No symptoms yet...I used to have sore bbs before I ovulated but I havent had that in a while...certainly don't have them now...i dont know if that is a bad sign but i am only 4 dpo!! lol...

I have been having massive hot flashes this last week...MASSIVE!!! but that is really all I have been feeling. I usually start cramping with AF about 1 1/2 weeks before she arrives so that will be the end of this week. We will see if those come and if so then I will definitely be out :(

I am trying to find things to keep my mind occupied!! It is tough though not thinking about it 24/7...but then of course I worry I am stuntin my O cycle with all the worry!!! This feel like such a scientific process!!! UGH!!

I am sorry to hear about your loss 4 months ago...I am happy to hear that you are finally able to try again!! Have you had any symptoms yet??? I am trying not to be all mental this month and think every little thing is a sign...LOL ~ Last month i was completely crazy with it!!! This month I am trying to just go with the flow...but it is HARD!!! :)

I hear ya. I tend to over analyze things too. I've been having some symptoms but who's to say those have anything to do with a potential pregnancy. I've had a weird headache since last night. It's much better today but last night it was brutal. And I've felt a bit nauseated but that could be the head thing. I have some increased CF too but again who knows. I had no symptoms with my first pregnancy and just a few right before I tested with my second. I tend to think no sign is a good sign usually but you never know. Even if you do cramp later this week, you can't say you're out. I thought my period was starting with my first but I was preggo. It is hard to keep from obsessing but luckily work has helped the past two days with that one. Hopefully the time passes for us quickly! Well good luck and keep me posted, Lizzy!

I am 3dpo, I am very tired, slightly sore bbs, mild cramps on and off, mild back pain on and off, forgetfulness and increase creamy cm. Today I drove down the wrong side of the road, the last time I did that was 6 years ago, when I was pregnant with my son, so I hope this is a good sign. At 1 dpo I had a hot flash and the shakes. I am so out of it, my dh keeps asking me if I am ok.

I love it girls!!! We will all be in this "FUN" together...LOL!!

It would be wonderful if we all got our BFP's and could wrap up those two lines to suprise our dh"s!!! Tonight I was shopping for a friend's baby and added a cute stuffed, giggling monkey to my hope chest!!! Do you ladies have hope chests??? Mine only has a few little things in it...the first baby blanket I crocheted and a couple of onesies and now a giggling monkey :) But it keeps the hopes up everytime I look inside!!!

So far I still don't have any real symptoms...my bbs aren't sore at all so that is concerning...I have had a wierd headache over the past week and I am very tired today...but it was a long day!!! Today I had a temp spike and creamy cm...gross right...lol :)

It is so nice to have people to talk to this stuff about without them gagging like the dear old H!!! :)

How are you girls doing??? I am going to start a new stroller blanket and settle in for a big bang theory marathon!! :) Have a great (symptom filled) night girls!! :)

Hi ladies! And I'm glad you're still hangin' in there with me, Lizzy. I love this! It's nice to have support out there during the waiting game. Some of your symptoms sound really promising! I thought about wrapping the test too! What a great Christmas gift that would be! That would be awesome too if we could all have that experience! As for symptoms, I'm still having the occasional headache issue and slight nausea. That's really about it for now. I'm excited! I hope you guys all follow this thread and keep us all posted! I'm rooting for all of you!

Oh girls...why is it that you can do everything right just like you should and the ugly cramps just always rear their ugly head???? I am at this point jus hoping I'm imagining them or that implantation cramps are miraculously occurring on the exact date that my pre af cramps usually arrive lolz...ugh :)

How are the rest of you fabulous girls today?? Symptoms????

Try not to let it get you down, Lizzy. I know that's easier said than done. It's still way early. My friend, who just found out Monday that she is pregnant, had horrible cramps from the time she ovulated till she found out. She was sure was crashing the party. It's early, and there's still tons of hopes!

Well it's 4DPO for me. Another day down, woohoo! Too early in the day to post any symptoms. I overslept big time. Hey, maybe that's a symptom, lol. How's everybody else faring?

Good evening Ladies!!! Well I had some af like cramps today but I had them while i was sleeping so maybe I just dreamed them...so worried about a bfn again!! Maybe I am causing dream cramps lol :)

On the upside...and this goes into the TMI category so cover your eyes if you are grossed out by CM talk...I have heavy, creamy cm going on right now and usually after O I am slippery but not creamy...I hear creamy is a good sign. My hubby tells me that it can be one of the first signs...and since he's a dr I suppose he knows lol :)

Other than that...nothing...no sore boobies or anythng... I am trying to hold off on the testing this month because testing this early is just silly. It is so hard!!! Going to the ballet this weekend with my mother in law so I am looking forward to that and trying to keep my mind off the rest.


here is hoping that the cramps are implantation and not the other...lol and that we all get our BFP's soon!!! :)

How are you ladies???

Yeah, I'm having a bit of that too and mild cramps here and there. I'm an early tester as well. Can't help it. I will probably start testing around 9DPO or so. I love POAS though ;) I wish they would come up with some other form of testing so you know instantly. Ah well. The ballet sounds fun! Enjoy!

It's sounding good for you Lhen!!! As for me, I am still cramping off and on today. They are just little spurts of pain and pressure but they feel like what I normally feel so I just can't get too excited that they are anything but pre cramps!! :(

I am still experiencing copius amounts of cm...which is wierd for me but I guess not totally out of the norm. I assume will rear here ugly head in a week.

I have been a bit naseous today but again...I am hesitant to blame any of these things on anything but my overactive imagination :)

Any progress from you ladies today???? Tomorrow I will be 7dpo and REALLY want to test...LOL even tho I know it will be negative!! I just cant help it!!! :)

It sounds promising to me, Lizzy.

I'm having a hard time not thinking about it this time around. I wish I could fast forward to testing. Today I am 5DPO and my boobs are a wee bit sensitive, but nothing drastic just very slight. It's got me thinkin'. I just don't want to get my hopes up ya know? I'm just praying and waiting.

I am 4dpo today, mild headache and lower back pain with hip aches. Neither of which are part of my reg pms symptoms. I guess I am lucky, the only thing I get exactly 5 days prior to AF is gas. So for me, this backpain and headache is actually a good sign... though last cycle I had it and wasn't pregnant. My cervix was fairly low after ovulation, and I did not dry up, cm kept coming. Now cervix is high and I have creamier cm vs the clear. When my cervix is high, i can just barely touch it with the tip of my finger... so I can't really tell if its soft/hard etc. Last cycle I did not have the creamy cm as I do now, i dried up for several days. Hoping this is a good sign.

What I actually think is these early symptoms are progesterone symptoms, which maybe means the egg was fertilized? Implantation is what we all want of course, but I bet that is where most pregnancies fail. So if my symptoms are indeed because the egg was fertiilized, then here is to hoping the egg also implants :)

Hi Lily and girls!! 7dpo today and hot flashes like WHOA!!! No other symptoms besides the cm hanging around...and lots of it!!!

I broke down and took a test today even tho it was a silly SILLY thing to do. Of course, it was a BFN!!! I didnt' think I would be disappointed since I kinda figured that is what would happen. But then I thought I saw a line but it was just the white antibody line...it was negative!!! And now I am so disappointed even tho I promised myself I wouldn't be. Oh what an addiction to have...lol :)

Any symptoms from you guys yet??? How are we holding up so far???
