First I want to say good luck to all waiting to O, and also those who are waiting for a bfp. And hopefully all expecting mamas are doing ok. I'm here in the background reading, but haven't got much to report.. No idea which cd I'm at and actually like it that way. Guessing O are coming up in a few days, 'cause now I'm starting to feel that familiar O-pain. I guess my body doesn't like it when I try "fertility supplements", because most of the time my ovulation pain are either a lot less noticable or completely goes away when I take those supplements. Now I'm only taking the prenatal ones and my O-pains are back.
Even if I don't count my cycle days, I still like to at least know when af is expected. So I'm trying to draw some linogonberry to make stickers out of and put in my calender. I don't know all the nicknames that af has where you all are from, but here one of those nicknames are "Lingonveckan", or Lingonberry week if I translate it directly. Hence the lingonberry stickers.

Lalou Hopefully you’ll find a good doctor who cares and support you the right way on this! Really hope your cycle will start or maybe you’ll be getting a late bfp? Fingers crossed!
Agatch Not quite relaxed yet, still managing with things for work preparing for the new season but I believe next week will be better and I’ll actually start to enjoy my vacations!! I’m crossing my fingers for you that you’ll be getting 2 beautiful lines in a few days!!
Burkette and pandorica seems like O is around the corner for you ladies! Good luck this cycle. Hopefully it will be a lucky one!
Millbarnett So sorry AF came! Hang in there and keep the faith! I’m sure your baby is on its way
AFM I’m 4dpo and all about pms started way too earlY this cycle. I enjoyed couple of months with minimum or none symptoms but this cycle oh boy! I got it ALL and got it bad.. cramps, sensitive nipples, tender and achy breasts, acne breakouts. Nothing unusual though. It’s kinda normal for me, I just got used to it not having it lately!
Have a great weekend everyone

Have a great weekend guys @mill a new cycle is a new chance to have a baby cheers to April 2020 a lot of family members are born in April including my mother her brother my 1st brother....
@Alex I think it is also because you were really stressed and the hormones picked up on that. It is crazy how women s bodies have a direct correlation between our mental health and hormones.
@Pandorica and Burkette have fun bd
AFM yesterday was full of emotions with my DH. We fought and cried together. We had to borrow some money from family members abt $4000because we did not budget well at least not enough for all the extra fees we have had to deal with. To apologize DH surprised me with a beautiful vase and red roses a love card and some milk chocolate. It was very sweet and so romantic. We talked and feel much better. Our issues reside in having extreme amount of stress and also not taking care of our individual spiritual health's. Having balance in all aspects of our lives is so important. And well like it was not enough the people that were supposed to help us yesterday never came they made up some excuse and now I am trying to find some other people to help us unload bc they are not even sure they will be able to help us today. ????
I am reminding myself to breathe calmly and to keep the faith.

@Agatch good luck to you! I always test early too lol
Just had to go brush my teeth so decided to take a pregmate and easy@home opt. Pregmate looks positive and easy@home almost there. DH didn't come home Saturday night but will on Sunday night after work. We talked about it and since bd'd around 11 pm on Friday night we'd be ok in waiting *hopefully* until Sunday night since no positive test when I talked to him. that we are doing better timing this cycle.

Lalou how interesting I never thought that my stress could have an impact to my pms. I’ll try to notice next time I’m having a stressful month! As Agatch said looks like you guys found your way to calm things down and I’m happy for you! Couples do fight but are always on the same team!
Agatch yes indeed! I did had more caffeine during rehearsals and show preparation! I actually used to drink way too much coffee like 5-6 cups per day and I cut it to one the last 2 years due to TTC. Now I’m drinking decaf at afternoon if I crave but this time I had like 1 cup in the morning and one in the afternoon. I don’t think I’m pregnant but I would totally accept it if I had a bfp this month lol
Hopefully something faint will start to form on your test tomorrow, leading to two big fat pink lines!!! Are you testing on cheapies or normal tests?
Crams Good luck girl this month! I hope you’ll manage to catch that egg!!
AFM 5dpo and pms still going hard. I cannot believe I have like a week in front of me and I have to deal with all of this till AF worst part is the nipples... I mean ouch!! Come on body.. why you play me like this?? Lol anyways.. one cycle closer to my truly hopeful cycles! Next one will be the actual cycle that doctor told us that supplements could start working! Plus I’ll be probably ovulating on my good side if my body is not a jerk lol
I hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend and hopefully we’ll see some bfps soon!!

@crams sounds like perfect timing if your husband is able to be home tonight!
@Alex i’m Using the Clinical Guard tests form Amazon. They are not super sensitive but usually very accurate from my experience.
I did test this morning (only 8 dpo ) and it is of course negative. Maybe a shadow there but so faint i’m not thinking anything of it. I had some cramping yesterday that felt almost like mild AF cramps. I had a dream I got 2 pink lines last night. So far no PMS irritability which is the only slightly unusual thing for me because that usually starts a week before AF. My lutheal phase used to be 14 days (before my MC) but last cycle was only 10 days so the absence of PMS at this point at least means my lutheal phase is getting longer which is a good thing regardless of the outcome! I may pick up a FRER today...
