    Hi everyone
    I'm new to this site and new to threading! :shock: My friend recommended it to me as an outlet and tight I'd give it a go.

    I'm not the most patient of people and I'm finding these TWW's a drag. I'm on cd19 and usually have a 30 day cycle and sometimes very irregular. I've been using the ov tests and ovulated cd 17 according to my results. Great I've done everything I supposed to (I hope), but I find these two weeks a bit of a stress. Wondering if I did it enough? If I had sex in the right position for successful conception? If any of these little symptoms I experience I feel are the early stages of pregnancy or implantation? It's a roller coaster!

    Do any of you feel the same? I need a big distraction and I was wondering if any of you lovely ladies out there can help. It feels so brilliant just to get it off my chest and onto the screen for starters. :)
    Thank you in advance xx

    In a non selfish way it's nice to know I'm not alone! Thank you for all for responses! It's nice to know that I can chat on here about anything and know we're all dealing with similar things! Most probably will be on here everyday no doubt, find the evenings the hardest tbh!
    Taking me a while to get to grips with writing on threads but sure I will get the hang of it!
    Thanks again all x

    There are lots of chats on here, I used his forum when pregnant with my first- I'm still in touch, daily with the ladies- 27 of us!!!! Fingers crossed for some sticky baby dust!

    I totally lost my marbles this morning and tested...despite knowing it would be negative because it's far too early.

    This website is really helping me too i love reading the comments. Still getting to grips with all the lingo lol.
    I am on CD 19 this is my 1st ever month off cilest in 10 years so in a sense I havent had a 'proper' period yet even though I had withdrawal bleed when i finished the pill.
    Hoping my body returns back to normal quick but we have still being TTC this month. So exciting but this wait my god, i dont know what to do with myself!
    Good luck girls will be nice to read your stories along the way xx

    I very much have the same issue. I'm 11DPO and hoping that its my month but knowing the spotting I've had today is probably AF who I would love to just go away. Sending you positive vibes and baby dust x

    Hi ladies
    How r you all doing this evening?
    Been keeping myself busy with my little one today so managed to stay a little distracted!
    Darcyhodge- yes ttc #2 second month at it this month, last month was my honeymoon and would have been nice to have a honeymoon baby but af reared her ugly head! How long have you been ttc Hun? Housework is a massive distraction here too :D


    It's lovely to hear from so many of you!

    Clarelp28 that's so lovely that your still in touch with the other ladies. My best friend naomi88 who's on here is exactly the same and I think it's so lovely to be able to talk and vent to people who completely understand what your going through. People are so supportive and it's lovely that friendships end up forMing. Boo to the bfn Hun! How many days po are you? I also have a little one 22 month old girl Sophie! Keeps me on my toes that's for sure!

    Islandqueen, I hope you get your bfp soon Hun! This TWW is definitely a killer! When do you think you'll test next? Our bodies are evil with these symptoms eh?

    Pambi - do you think the spotting is implantation bleeding?

    What sort of symptoms have you all been experiencing? Any of you had very early ones. I'm 4 dpo and having a few twinges in he pelvic area. Yesterday I had a really sharp one on the left. Also a few achy twinges in my boobs xx

    I know I'm googling the abbreviations all the time! Hopefully it will be a speedy time for your first period to arrive!
    I have a friend in work who conceived as soon as she finished her pill. Didn't even have a proper af!
    Good luck to you too Hun!
    Xx

    I get spotting these days before AF is due so don't have much hope for it being implantation bleeding. You never know though maybe it is and I'm lucky! :2ww:

    It really is, we all were in a tri 1 thread on here, and it all followed on from there!
    It was such a life saver in the early days having a newborn!!

    I think I am 6dpo, but dying to know by the weekend! My little girl will be 2 on Sunday and it is also my birthday too!

    How are you doing? xx

    I bet it was! Wished I'd done this first time round! It must have been such a support especially on the tough days xx

    Do you think you'll test on the weekend? O wow happy birthday to the both of you! What a lovely thing to share your birthday with you dd! How long have you been ttc #2?

    Not to bad today thank you! I work Monday and Tuesday's part time as a teaching assistant and the rest of the week off with Sophie. Kept very busy today with her. Think I find the evenings harder though. I'm 4po and feeling a little crampy and also a few twinges in my boobs. I just hope this next week or so goes quickly, my body has been know to be tricked in previous months. But heyho!

    How are you feeling Hun? Any symptoms? Xx

    Thanks lovely, I am sure that my daughter will hate it when she is older!!!!

    I have no doubt I will test all weekend!! :wall2: Though I am working all day Saturday, so not sure I will get a second.

    I am feeling so bloody impatient about this, its stupid. I think it's not helped by the fact Hubby and I decided on number 2 in March, but it took until June 7th to get the coil out as the GP couldn't find the strings, had to have a scan, another dig around by GP, referral to a specialist, intercervial block and far too big implements stuck where the sun doesn't shine!! So we have been ready for a couple of months, but unable to do anything about it!
    Add is symptom spotting like mad - cramps and feeling really tired..could just be af!

    Totally know what you mean re evenings - I am stuck at my computer working, my husband is on a late shift, so wont be home until 1am, hard not to think about it...during the day Isabella keeps me pretty busy (today she drew on the windows!) and I was working this morning.
