2WW Chat Thread

I know it's still very early but I thought I would go ahead and start the dreaded 2ww thread!

Is anyone in the 2ww yet? If so, any symptoms to obsess over? Wink

I am barely in the 2ww, I am pretty sure I ovulated Sunday. No symptoms yet, just the obsessing over if we timed everything right, should we BD again just in case, etc. I really wish the 2ww wasn't so dang long!!

Jina, just noticed you were 9 DPO, when are you testing??

Jo, do you chart? Also, it couldn't hurt to BD again...right? Wink

I think I'm going to test in 2 days at 11 dpo. I might just wait until AF shows....I'm just not feeling up to seeing any more bfns...lol.

As for symptoms, I have none. No cramping, no sore bbs, no nothing. I am really sleepy and tired today but that's about it. Boo! Wink

I just got my positive opk yesterday, so I guess I'm just barely in my tww too! No symptoms yet =/ just very vivid dreams of me being pg and having the Dr confirm it w/ no scares this time.

Yay for testing in 2 days! Sending BFP vibes your way! I don't chart but do check CM & position for signs of O. And, your right, it won't hurt to DB one more time...just in case!;)

I'm in the 2ww already. I O'd either Fri or Sat. I'm holding out testing until next Tues (10 or 11 dpo) because its my bday! A bfp for my bday would be awesome, but I've never gotten one before 12 dpo so I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high.

I'm pretty sure I'm over here too... didn't get a positive opk, but I stink at testing regularly. Sad I had some pretty promising looking cm, so I think I o'd.

I'm going to take Jina's advice and keep testing just in case, but got some bd-ing in.

Here's to the long 2WW!

I'm pretty sure I "O"d yesterday but today I've had the smallest amount of bloody CM, so it's got me wondering. We didn't really put much effort into it this cycle. Just wasn't feeling it. :confused:

Hi April moms... I'm well into the 2ww myself and thought I would stroll over here and join the board. I'm 11 DPO and am planning to wait until my period would be due to test (so, Sunday or Monday). We timed it right and I do feel like i have some symptoms--general tiredness and I didn't fit into my bikini top yesterday, so I definitely think I'm getting some breast enlargement. I may be imagining it though! LOL.

Amber, I hope you do get a bfp for your birthday! That would be so awesome! Biggrin

Elizabeth, GL! Got my finders crosses for you!

Shannon, I've heard that spotting from O takes a while to make it out so you could very well have O'd when you thought you did! GL!

Izzysmama, Those are promising symptoms! GL!

AFM, Still no symptoms...even my fatigue went away. I feel pretty perky and completely normal! I had more "symptoms" last cycle....meh. lol

I hope so Jina. I'm still spotting today though. I'm getting really tired of this. I believe this is the 3rd cycle in a row that I've started spotting right after "O" and have continued to spot until AF has arrived. :rolleyes: I just don't get it. At least I know I've "O'd" this cycle, the tata's are sore! ROFL

Shannon, Isn't Vitex known to cause mid-cycle spotting/bleeding? I wonder....did the spotting start after you started taking Vitex?

Thanks Elizabeth! I'm a little disappointed but it's okay. I'll just try again. I am a holding on to a little hope....there's a possibility that I'm actually only 8 dpo. I guess only time will tell! Wink

Jina at 11 dpo, couldn't it still just be too early for a BFP? I would test again in a few days!

Jina, I'm holding out that hope for you, too. I know you've heard all of this a million times from other posters (lol) but I'm one of those girls who don't get a BFP until I've missed AF, and even then it's light. I guess I just implant late or something. Maybe that's the case! Your chart is still climbing, though!

Jessie, It could be....I did get a bfp last time at 11 dpo so I was hoping to get one this time around too. lol

Jo, thanks! When are you planning on testing?

Amber, thanks...I kinda hope so too. Biggrin

Elizabeth, That gives me some hope....my chart does look pretty darn good...lol...but it looked good last month too! Grrr! Wink

Jessiesgirl24, I hope you get a bfp! Have you talked to your doctor about your long cycles? Also, it might be good idea to start charting to see where exactly you are in your cycle so you won't have to guess so much and sit and wonder all the time. GL!

Nicole, thanks and GL to you!

Well, AF is due today and no sign of her yet. Hey all you chart gurus, can you look at my chart and tell me what you think? I've never charted before so I don't know what to look for.

Jina, I'm excited for you to test again!!

Your chart looks good. I see a lot of open circles - when is your normal temp time and when did you take the one today (how far beyond your normal time)?

Are you going to test?

P.S. If you do get a BFP, wouldn't you be in March with us (March 26 or so)?! You'd get to straddle both boards! Awesome!

Um....I honestly was not going to test because I have absolutely zero symptoms! Like...nothing! I don't even have AF symptoms. I signed on and read everyone's comments and decided to test. I'm am in shock right now...I honestly was not expecting this at all. I honestly didn't think my temps meant anything....I mean, my chart looked pretty darn good last cycle too and no bfp. I took a test with an IC and kinda forgot about it and I went to go throw it away half an hour later and holy cr@p! A line! So I immediately whipped out a frer and a line showed right away!

I am so terrified and ecstatic! I haven't told hubby yet....he's in his office right now....OMGosh....I think I'm gonna faint! Haha! Oh man, I seriously was not expecting this....I even started using fatgirlslim cream on my tummy a few days ago....I hope it's not harmful! Ugh!

ETA - Thank you ladies for convincing me to test! I really would not have done so on my own!!

Elizabeth, I hope the dental work went well and you recover quickly!

Cait, Hi! Sounds like a fun night! Biggrin

Meg, Thanks! I will definitely come say Hi in March! I think my edd is 3/25 or 3/28 so I will for sure straddle both boards. I've also come to love the ladies here in April so much and hope to get to know the ladies in March better too!

Jessie, Ditto Meg about the open circles but your chart looks really good. Have you tested?!

Carin and Nicole, Thank you!! Biggrin

Jina--CONGRATS! April's first BFP!!

Meg--I honestly didn't even know what the open circles meant. I was wondering that. My times are really wonky--from 6 am to 8:30 am. Usually it's between 7:15 and 7:45 though. Today's time was late--like 8:30 I think. Does that mean it could be inaccurately high?

And regarding due date, according to LMP my due date would be March 26, and according to O date it's April 5. I decided to hang with the April ladies since my DD was born 8 days post-dates, so I'm guessing even with a due date of March 26 I won't give birth until April. Also, DD was born right at the end of the month, so I had to sit there watching everyone else on my BB have their babies. I was one of the last two. I'd rather be one of the first this time around! Smile :)

Regardless, no AF today and I'm usually very regular, right at 28 days. Smile Can't wait for Tuesday. I would love to give DH a BFP as an anniversary gift.

EEEP!!

Okay, don't make fun of me, but I totally got goosebumps and teared up when I read your post. lol I am so excited for you!!! (Can you tell by the multiple exclamation marks?) Smile

I'm praying that this is a healthy sticky bean for you. :bighug:

IzzysMama- I hope this is it for you! That would be such a cool anniversary gift! Smile

Congrats Jina!!!:yahoo: I'm glad we persuaded you to test Biggrin Lots of sticky vibes heading your way!

AFM, I caved and tested yesterday, bfn, but I'm not surprised because I was only 8 or 9 dpo. So I'm testing again tomorrow and hopefully I get my bday bfp! I think it could go either way, so I'm trying to be optimistic while still trying not to get my hopes up too high.

Mandy, thank you!! I can't wait for you to get your bfp! You should be O'ing soon, right? Biggrin

Jessie, It's hard to read a chart accurately with a lot of open circles. I think you get them when you don't take your temp at the same time every morning or if you check that you are sleep deprived. It is really important that you try to take your temp at the same time every morning with at least 3 hours of sleep. Have you read their FAQ page or watch the videos? Very helpful!! With that being said, your temps look really great! I think you should test!! Biggrin

Elizabeth, Aww...thank you so much! You're making me tear up! lol...I hope you get your bfp this month too!! It would be really cool to share a bb! Biggrin

Amanda, Thank you very much!! Biggrin Isn't your hysteroscopy today? I've been following your TTC journal....I can't wait for your IUI!! GL and I have everything crossed for you!!

Amber, thanks! It's still way too early to count yourself out! I got a bfn at 11 dpo....I mean, it was stark white on the frer. Last time, I got a blazin' positive on a frer at 11 dpo so I thought I was out for sure! GL!

Sophia, thank you so much!! Biggrin

AFM, I guess I need to call my OB right away but I don't want to! I'm scared....I know she'll want to check my progesterone level but I can't go until Wednesday anyway....I want hubby to come with me and he can't get off until Wednesday because this week is his last week at his company! I hope a few days won't make a difference if I do need progesterone suppositories.

I can't wait to see more BFPs roll in!! Sending out lots of sticky BFP vibes!!!! Biggrin

Jina- I posted on the DYSAL board but I am so unbelievably excited for you!!!! So stinking awesome!!! And such pretty lines!

As for the doc...I would try to get in as soon as you can for the bloodwork. Not sure a few days makes a difference or not but if you know she wants to check those levels, it may be safer to get in quicker. That said, I do understand you wanting him there with you. Maybe he can take a long lunch and go with you?

hey ladies! i have one more day until i can officially test, but i thought i'd show up here and ponder my symptoms!

even though i don't know you and just made an appearance here, CONGRATULATIONS Jina Biggrin wishing you a very HH9M!!!

i've had heart burn (which i NEVER get unless preggers), queasiness on and off through out the day, heavy boobs, sore the few times i do bf my 14 month old, back aches now and then, smells have started to affect me, and just really really moody too.

i was thinking that these could be from totally cutting out almost all bf'ing sessions except 2-3x a week at night. my hormones could be trying to get back to "normal". but i guess we'll see!!

good luck to everyone and i hope April is your month!!
