I have been drifting through this site and found advice and comfort in other members experiences. I'd like to offer something back.....
TTC started in January , pretty sure I was way off with my cycles and timing Ovulation etc. Both work shifts and work away so conceiving was quickly becoming a logistical nightmare. Also in the back of my mind I have been worrying about spotting that I have always had since I remember. I have always spotted 7/8 days , each day before full flow arrives. But we thought ..... Lets give it a go and if we have no joy after 12 months then we would see a GP.
Tried to figure out ovulation just by monitoring CM or when I felt horny in Feb & March . April & May we missed as away with work. I then bought ov strips from amazon to try and pin down out fertile time !
So I had a pos ov test strip on Fri 14 June , DTD on 12th,13th &14th , then work constraints kicked in over the weekend. Felt a little disheartened as my typical spotting started on 23rd :( I kinda thought it was an issue that would stop me conceiving :(. So cracked on with life .........
On 25th my spotting just stopped :-0 , I thought as the rest of the week went on that it was totally out of the ordinary for my spotting to stop . My full flow was due on Sunday 30th ....... but nothing. I am normally 26/27/28 day cycle with the horrible 7/8 days spotting pre AF .
Since my spotting stopped all I had was the creamy white cm , not much but noticeable on my pads. Sunday 30th came & went , AF no show but assumed she will arrive over next couple of days..... I got up this morning , still no AF ( three days lateish) . It wasn't being late that prompted me to test ..... It was he constipation I have had since the weekend ....... I eat all bran , fruit and nothing was moving it. !
POAS this morning ....... Strong positive :-0 ......... wow
I'm not a big believer in symptoms that early but if I look back over the last two weeks :
went to bed twice really early last week , felt knackered
Had AF type cramps for ages now prob since my spotting started on 23rd , however they are lighter than AF..... Like flutters and pulls.
Nothing else noticeable , no booby changes yet .....
I just wanted to post as I was so worried about my lutreal phase etc with my spotting ......I know reading through this site it causes other women concerns as it did me....... Well I'm proof this morning that you can conceive ...... Fingers crossed all will be ok !
Thank you lovely ladies for the advice I have had over the last few months
Praying for great news for all of you xxxxx
