Hello everyone. New to these boards but thought would be nice to chat with others in the same boat. Currently CD25. Got positive ovulation test 5/31 & 6/1. I have PCOS and am currently nursing our 20 Mo old. I have had 3 cycles so far pp. First was 120 days, second was 48 days,. And now if I ovulated on 6/1 this one would be about 38 or 39 days.

I don't know, but this cycle has been a little different got EWCM for 8 or 9 days before positive ovulation test. Breasts were super sore past couple days which is unusual for me even with nursing our lo. Then 6/1 around 5 to 630 pm started having some cramping/ mild pain in left pelvic area. So thinking may have been ovulation pains?

We have been ttc#4 since October before my cycle came back by using opts. For PCOS with 20 Mo old was on metformin 1500 mg. Dr upped it to 2250 but had been making me feel yucky so stopped them last cycle and didn't start back up yet. Taking prenatal vitamins. I will be starting vaginal progesterone suppositories on Monday once I get a chance to pick up my prescription.

DH works out of town a bit so try to time sex close to fertile window. With having many days of ewcm we had sex 5/28 and he came home 5/31 and got to have sex before went to bed around 1am 6/1.

If go by pains would be 1dpo 6/2. If we get pregnant we'd be due about 2/22/20.

Hoping have a chance this month as we're 41 and would love for our youngest to have a sibling close in age. Otherwise the other 2 from my previous marriage are 19 and 18 yrs old.

Good luck everyone!!

Kait If you think that staying away from tracking will calm your mind, then do it! This s the most important thing my doctor told me. Stay calm, stop stressing about it and stop tracking! He told me exactly “you’re driving yourself crazy.. you’re on a two week wait anxiously waiting when you’ll ovulate and after that you’re on a two week wait to see if you made it. This isn’t gonna work with so much stress on your system!” And he’s right tbh but personally I want to keep tracking just to have a general picture of things so Hopefully you’ll find what works best for you!

Jessica I really hope your tests will keep getting darker!

Nasa Hi! I’m one of the ladies that was so much symptom spotting in the past where I had all symptoms on the list and was never pregnant. I stopped symptom spotting a long time ago and I’ve noticed that it is all period related as well. Actually progesterone hormone rising after ovulation causes same symptoms pregnant or not because its role is to prepare the body for pregnancy. With that said I’m having my fingers crossed for you that your symptoms this time are indeed pregnancy related! Good luck!

Kgirlkaw and Crams welcome and good luck!!!

AFM I don’t know what’s happening with my O. I’m having normal O pains as every cycle and I was expecting to O today as usual. Last night I was 100% sure I might be Oing earlier based on pains but my opks second line last night was almost invisible. I said “ok.. tomorrow then as normal..” this morning my opk is still sooooo light.. wtf? Usually if it’s not super dark at CD12 and it’s one of the cycles I’m Oing later, at least it is close to positive. I’m thinking could it be cuz I’m having a lot more water than usual and my lh isn’t showing? My urine are not super diluted when I’m testing tho..

Alex, for some reason I've had better luck taking OPKs at around 7 pm. They are always super light in the afternoon for some reason. What time do you take them?

Jessica usually my opks are showing late evening and morning. But not this so far! Hopefully tonight..

Hello everyone,

Welcome to all the newbies. I am sorry it is hard to keep up but I will try harder. I just wanted to stop by and wish gL on everyone ovulating this week For sure @Alex that your opks tests will show better.
Fingers crossed for everyone else in the TWW.
AFM Testing exam tomorrow and also my birthday. I am turning 30!! I had a nice weekend with friends visiting from out of town. I feel very blessed. Thank you again everyone for the support. I hope to do better on my test tomorrow being the 2nd time around. Fingers crossed.

Keep up the faith and stay brave and positive.

Lalou Good luck babe on your exams and HAPPY BIRTHDAY Entering your 30s is always so thrilling! At least it was for me lol I wish all your desires to become true this year!! ♥?

CD13 here for me and no positive opks yet. The last 14 cycles I only had twice ovulated on CD13 and only once on CD15. Every other cycle I was on CD12 as I expected this month too and some times even on CD11. I guess this will be a different cycle and I hope a lucky one too!
I’m very sad though cuz I had a huge fight with my husband last night and idk how things are gonna be today between us.. he’s still sleeping. We didn’t BDd last night of course, which is not good for my planning but at this point I only want us to solve our stupid issues and get back to our normal loving selves! Do you guys find yourself more irritable around O days? I know most of women are going bonkers before AF but I swear I have this around O and rarely before AF..
.. anyways! I hope everyone is having a great one!

Hello all! Coming across from the last group.
I'm 3 dpo but didn't get much bd in this month so not hopeful.
My 16 month old is going through some sort of phase and waking every hour making me wonder if i should delay baby 2 for another 6 months until she is a bit older. And maybe being too tired to bd is a sign
Good luck to everyone this cycle! Is anyone else in the 2ww?

@Lalou - Hope your exam goes (or went) well! And happy birthday!

As for me, I'm cd 11 and just entered my fertile week. Last time I took borage oil up until cd 14 and didn't ovulate until a week later. This time I'll stop taking them tomorrow, and hopefully it won't be too delayed. I definitely feel that it's doing something, because I can feel a kind of prickling sensation in my right ovary. Fingers crossed it's my golden egg that's maturing.

Yes, I’m very aware of how my body can convince me that I’m pregnant but after 2 years TTC and 2 losses I’ve learned NPUP (not pregnant until proven) so I never assume anything until my period is late and I get a positive pregnancy test. It saves me a lot of trouble of getting my hopes up. I mainly log my symptoms to see how my cycle is regulating post surgery. Things are actually a lot different post lap.

10 dpo for me at still getting super light positives. Still not convinced. I'm either having A LOT of watery CM (and I remember that in early pregnancy) or I have super bad bladder control. Which if this is #4, wouldn't be out of the question lol.

I'll just keep testing. Not much else to do but wait. Have I mentioned I hate the 2WW?
