Let’s do this TWW together!

View Full Post

Hi ladies! I’m currently going through my first two week wait in this whole, crazy TTC adventure and it is killingggggggg meeeeee. I though I had ovulated two days ago, but had some serious ovulation pain last night so now I’m in limbo, assuming I’m 1DPO - Wondfo tests ordered and being delivered on the 19th so no doubt I will be testing all the way up until AF or a pos test (because I’m the first to admit I have ZERO self control)!
I figured it would be a good idea to gather ladies in the same boat so we can check with each other and give words of encouragement however this cycle goes!

I'll join you lovely ladies. I am about 2-3 DPO today still waiting for a sustained temp rise for three days to confirm O day. I had a big spike this morning. We've been TTC for almost a year now and have been going to see a fertility specialist since February. There is nothing wrong with us, just bad luck i suppose. I do have mild PCOS so they put me on metformin, but i always ovulate so that's not an issue. I had a chemical in December and lost my first pregnancy at 7w1d in March. Hoping and praying so hard for a healthy sticky bean. We will be moving on to IVF in a few months if we can't do this on our own. I'm 41 and DH is 53 so we don't have much more time to waste. I won't be testing until about 12 DPO which is when i've gotten all my other positive tests.

Welcome welcome ladies, and thank you for sharing your journeys! Pandorica, I think I need to schedule something for us to do so I don’t go completely batty unfortunately it’s too hot here to do anything but stay inside and hide from the sun..
Lissa, I’m so sorry for your loss and that you have been having such a hard time... sending all the sticky sticky baby dust your way! We decided to TTC as soon as humanly possible because my endo seems to be getting significantly worse (fearing my fertility is going with it) and my docs won’t even bother to take a look unless we have been trying for a year. I finally went off the BC that stopped my cycles and when I did, it was the Mother of all cycles. I never realized how much MORE stressful TTC would be once you’re faced with potential infertility/confirmed infertility.

How are you ladies doing today? I'm anywere between 5-7 dpo and I'm so freakin' torn between testing and not testing. I'm so darn curious I want to know as early as possible. But I also don't feel like getting an evap that gets my hopes up, or see a faint line disappearing. I'd rather see a stark white negative, I have no problem accepting those.

Doing okay here! Lots of pain last night. Also decided that I was right the first time for my O, assuming I’m 5dpo now and having the same issue with wanting to test so bad.
Pandorica, do you use the cheap internet dip tests? Those have saved me in the past for my POAS addiction.

Hello ladies! I'm currently 6 or 7dpo. We've been ttc#4 about 10 Mo now. We're both 41 so hoping to get pregnant sooner than later. I do have pcos and am on 1500 mg metformin daily. Since I ordered a big batch of lh and pregnancy tests (pregmate) I have already started testing. Lol Hoping for a bfp... thinking we timed a bit better this cycle.

Hi girls, i'm officially 4DPO today. Big temp rise and now i'm taking my progesterone supplement so i won't be able to symptom spot lol. I was very sleepy yesterday - slept in late and took a 3 hour nap. Feeling a little more energetic today. Hope you all are doing well! I won't be testing for a while because my LP is 16 days.

@EndoMama - Yeah, I have ICs (like 35 of them). Unfortunately I discovered that these particular brand seem to be prone to evaps. I can always see a very faint line even when it's not possible it would be a true faint line.

@pandorica that’s awful. I just ordered wondfos knowing damn well they will drive me bonkers.

I actually have a question for everyone here because my BFF and I were discussing this the other day and I’m wondering what yall’s take on it is:

During the TWW, how do you modify your usual routine/diet/medication habits - if at all? Do you allow yourself to drink? Coffee? Do you take supplements? Avoid certain medications?

Hi Endomama,
Any medications that say not to use during pregnancy/trying to conceive I don’t use. I avoid anything that can cause cramping, like stool softener, evening primrose etc. I gave up drinking a couple months before we started trying. I’m going to tryyyyy to reduce my caffeine intake... tough one for me!

@Erised same! I cut caffeine about a month ago and thought it would have been way harder. I ended up replacing it with a ton of herbal tea through the day lol
I take Adderall for ADHD and have been trying to limit the days I take it. I’m waiting for my next appointment with my psych to see what we should do about it because this is our first cycle trying and the most I could do is limit it to the days my ADHD is really bad.
