Hi Ladies,
My TWW is about to start and I would like friends to cheer, support & accompany each other through these dreadful (and exciting few weeks). Who wants to join me?

Hi Alaskagirl,

I'm 2dpo (I think lol) I'm using opks for the first time and I've had some confusing results. How many dpo are you?

I'd love some company in this TWW, it feels like it drags so slowly

yes! I am fixated on symptoms. I had an e/p last year and this is 2nd month ttc. I am 3dpo today. Obviously, I have no "pregnancy" symptoms at this point.

I don't have any symptoms either, i know some women say they do so I was just asking... 3dpo here

Feeling bummed out bc I think may have used my opks and clear blue advanced wrong. Been getting weird results. But I hope you all are feeling good.. I'm praying for our rainbow.

Baby dust to everyone!

Hoping for those 2 lines

Do you guys mind if I jump on here? I'm 2dpo today and would love some company these next couple of weeks.
Obviously no symptoms yet, but praying for a positive. Had a late term loss back in August so I'm excited to be trying again.

Hope you're both well! You guys are a bit further along than I am, are either of you getting any symptoms yet?

Please take care.

Hello Ladies,
I'm so glad that there are so many of us on here and can help each other go through this dreaded two week wait.

I'm feeling a little blue because my body has been sorta out of whack sense my miscarriage in September.... and i don't know if I ovulated this month. I have had a lot of conflicting information from my poor body:

Clear Blue OPK: I had 2 days of high fertility followed by a Peak fertility... there was no EWCM

Cheapo OPKs: Never picked up an LH surge

CM: I started on Saturday with EWCM through today...

BBT: I have been charting every day and had a weird dip thing yesterday... My chart is on my home page if you want to check it out.

sooooo have I ovulated? It seems not.

Leah, any +'s today?

thinking of you all!!!!

@ Alaskagirl, so sorry about miscarriage. I've heard that's very hard to go through, and I bet the wait for your body to reset is hard to handle. However, at least you know you can get pregnant, right? My husband always says A LOT of miscarriages happen, but that doesn't make it easier at all.....:( It's very scary to think about how many can potentially end in a miscarriage. We just have to think about how it's nature doing it's own thing for a reason. Wish I could be more helpful. I'll check your chart next.

I didn't get a positive today, it's still only 11 DPO, so it's early, but chances are if it picked up any HCG during 9 DPO and it's not now..it means it was a chemical pregnancy that ended in very early miscarriage, but I was told to expect that, so I'm not really emotional about it. I'm totally bummed, but it was the first month we tried and it happened on accident that we did it the day before I ovulated, so I guess I can't complain too much.

Just always remember there is next month.

Hi ash, so sorry to hear about your loss. Unfortunately I think I can relate my daughter was born sleeping in august as well. It's been a really hard couple months. My prayers and thoughts are with you..

Leah, faint positives are a great start... fx they get darker..hcg doubles every 2 days right? Def test again!!

Alaska, I used opks and the clear blue advanced. I think they confused me..opks would be dark positive but clear blue was low.. then it went peak that afternoon. I think I messed up bc I used fmu and smu for each test and I think clearblue asks for fmu. The smu threw off my results : \ wish I followed the directions better. And my cm didn't seem to match up to anything lol I'm a mess for sure! I wish I could be more help. I heard that the peak result is more reliable than the high results, but again not sure.

at 5do I don't really have any "real" symptoms to report haha I sure feel a few things pulling, cramping, exhaustion, really moody lol these past 4 days. So we'll see! Fx!!

Any of you ladies feeling anything? I'm waiting for the bfp hcg tests I ordered to come in..they're taking forever but maybe that's good, itll keep me for testing too early! .

@ Alaskagirl, I saw your chart. Hmmmmm, here are my thoughts, I understand if you totally disagree... Instead of being worried about if you are ovulating (as you obviously can ovulate and probably are since you have been pregnant before), my thoughts are (as it looks a bit complicated), is just use the calculators that are on this website and know how long your cycle is and when you ovulate and when your good days are. Having intercourse 2 days before your ovulate and the day you ovulate should work. Why not try that for 3 months and see how it goes?

Every 48 hours your HCG doubles, yes.

Hopetobe2- I did test today....so, I tested 9 DPO at night and got that faint positive, and I tested again today 11 DPO in the morning and NOTHING, and nothing all day yesterday! I used first response curved at 9 DPO, so I am thinking it might have even been a false positive (although the line was definitely pink, look at my pictures, so I find that hard to believe even if some of those tests this year might be screwy supposedly).

Hope, how do you think you used the tests wrong?


I am getting a blood test on Thursday....so lol, we'll see, but I am 99% sure it's negative. It was just very weird seeing how I had every symptom, I threw up, had horrible heartburn, had pulling and pressure in my uterus that wasn't like my period. So, I am definitely thinking it was at least chemical. I'm feeling nothing today.

Every test should be FMU, period, it's the best time to take the test because it's less diluted. However, eventually, it won't matter and the HCG will accumulate enough that you'll get a pregnancy sign no matter what.


Just keep in mind, testing very early isn't advisable, even though it's flipping hard and I'll probably keep doing it!!!!!!! It's just that most of these pregnancies only turn into chemical pregnancies. My husband kept telling me that, and I now I wish I listened to him. Lol.

I just uploaded a picture of my OPK, could you please look at it and let me know if you think it's a positive?!

I started getting positive OPKs and my digital Blue "peak" smiley face. So if my temps go up tomorrow then I'm just behind you all in my TWW.

How are you feeling today? Has anyone taken any more tests? For those of you who haven't started... when do you plan to start?

Hope - so sorry to hear about your loss as well. I hope you're doing alright.

Alaska - I'm sorry to hear about your loss also! It can take some time for things to regulate. I checked your OPK today and it looked negative but almost positive; I'd be anxious to see what it does tomorrow. Maybe you already had a surge, I've heard that you can have multiple surges so I would probably just act as if you hadn't already had one.

I'm 3dpo today - not feeling much of anything yet.
Planning to test around 10dpo but might hold off a bit longer if I can bear it so I get a nice, clear positive (fingers crossed!)

How is everybody else feeling today?

Well, I finally got positive OPKs (both on my digital Clear Blue with a "peak" and with my cheapos). It funny that I have now gotten positives twice this cycle. It seems that my body was gearing up for an ovulation and didn't quite make it, so its trying again now. Hopefully i'll see confirmation of the O in my temps tomorrow or the next day!

I know what you mean, its soooo hard for me not to test. I think i have a really strong desire to know whats going on... even if it means knowing that I'm having chemicals! I plan to start testing at 8DPO, but I might start earlier!

Well, I just started my period this morning....bad news..I'm not preggo. Good news? It started 4 days earlier than I expected, (I had the nexplanon in so I'm figuring some things out still), which means we get to try again that much sooner!!! This time, we won't just be doing it once, but I'm creating a schedule and hopefully that'll make all the difference. I'm feeling good about this next time.

Good luck you guys!

Hi everyone! I'm 14 DPO and "technically" 1 day late as I have an average 27 day cycle. Last month I had a 28 day cycle, so the witch could show today. I have not tested yet because I am so sick of seeing that stark white box. I was tempted to purchase a test over the weekend, but I resisted. Yesterday after work, I was on my way to Target to buy a one, but I drove right past and went home. Guess I want to get beyond the 28 days before I test, as it's been a very long time since having a 29 day cycle. I still have yet to experience true AF symptoms, but here and there I feel like cramps might be starting. However, I have gone to the restroom 3 times just to check and so far nothing at all, not even spotting.

My husband and I stopped actively trying in October this year after TTC on and off for 5 years without success, it was too stressful. I feel if I don't test and then get my period--it won't be that big of a let down. It's so weird, as I type this I feel like AF has arrived just suddenly. My luck, she probably has! This waiting is so obnoxious! If I don't get AF by the time I leave work, I think I'm going to buy a test. EEK!

Awe Leah sorry to hear about the witch : / you mentioned using the first response curved, well I used that a week after I had 3 days of light bleeding and got a definite pink positive even bf saw it! 2 days later got a negative beta though! We were so disppointed and confused.. that was a week and two days ago. Not sure how that could've happened bc I never bled after that yet. But it had to be a fluke I guess. I'm glad you can start trying sooner now!

As for how I used the opks wrong... the clear blue advanced said first morning, the anewer opks said it didn't HAVE to be fmu so I tested multiple times daily.. when I got a positive opk in the afternoon I used the same urine sample and did the clearblue advanced. It gave me a peak result but it was afternoon urine... I figured it probably isn't that accurate than.

So I'm not really feeling any new symptoms. . It's 7 dpo for me today. I'm getting bfp hcgs today in the mail. I'll probably have to test later lol

Welcome dakiddo! Fx for no AF, I'd have to test by now lol good luck : )

Sorry Alaska I'm terrible with opks haha, still don't even know when or if ovulated at all

Ash, gl on your test,I wish I had the will power to wait.. I'm a glutton for punishment I guess

Mollsk, how are you doing??

to everyone
