Hi I am new to the forum but have been lurking on this site and many others for the past few years, currently been ttc with my fiance for the past 3 1/2 years, and I am now 33 and on the waiting list for IVF.. About twelve years ago I also ttc with a previous partner but that never happened either, ( so the problem is def with me ) anyhoo everything happens for a reason and the point I am trying to get across is that in total in last 15 years I have spent six years trying to conceive. Anyway this cycle has been unlike any other I can remember. My cycle is usually bang on 27days and I ovulate cd 15. 4 dpo - My gums start to bleed when I am brushing my teeth ( This hasn't happened me since I was a teenager ) 5 dpo - I noticed a spot of blood on my underwear, just one spot about the size of a twenty pence. ( this has never happened me before either I never get spotting prior to af ) 6 dpo - I get painful period like cramps late at night when I am trying to sleep ( I have never had mid cycle af type cramps before, I normally only get them the day of my period or the night before at the earliest ) 7 dpo - hot flashes, well this has been happening on an off since ovulation but I haven't been taking much notice as its not really unusual for me. 8 dpo - nothing. Which is actually strange as every other cycle I have had extremely tender breasts which start a few days after ovulation and last right up until the day before af. I am now 9dpo and still no tender breasts, but still no bfp.. I really hope this isn't all in my head and that because so much is different with this cycle that maybe I have a chance. In the last month I have cut out a lot of sugar, drinking herbal teas and started eatting more healthy and exercising more. Any opinions? anyone want a 9dpo buddy to obsese over symptoms with?
