8 dpo and "officially" in the 1 WW!
Shawn Mom to DS, July 2009Expecting our little girl after three m/c - EDD 11/29/12
Hi Everyone! I'm new to the board. I've been lurking around, reading posts to gain information and realizing that it's kind of depressing to see how many people don't get pregnant every month, ugh. I think it's good for us all to remember not to get discouraged from seeing so many BFN's, both your own and other people's. Eventually it will happen. I had to remind myself that with my first child, who is now almost 10 years old, I got pregnant on accident, from one act of unprotected sex and even went to the bathroom immediately to try and "drain" all the baby makers. I still ended up pregnant. Thought I'd share that story as a reminder that even though it can seem really hard and that it takes forever, it can also be really easy and happen out of nowhere. It's just so random and it WILL HAPPEN EVENTUALLY! That being said, I'm really hoping to be so lucky this time around, but am realistic that I'm older now and that statistically, it will probably take a couple months. Especially since I just stopped taking the pill. I have been on and off the pill for a couple years now, and every time I've stopped, my period has come 28-29 days later, so I know I have a chance this month because I always ovulate on schedule, but we'll see how lucky we get :) This afternoon I felt a major twinge in my stomach, which isn't so abnormal because I've felt similar twinges while I was on the pill and knew for sure I wasn't pregnant. Of course I'm wondering if these were different because they were stronger and there were two instead of one, but we'll see. I'm hoping to start feeling something really obvious (if we could only be so lucky). That being said, here are the answers to your questions.
What cycle TTC is this for you? Cycle 1
What CD are you on? CD 19 (CD20 in a couple hours)
How many dpo are you? 7 dpo (but since it's the end of the day, I'll call it 8 dpo)
Do you have other children at home? 1, she's almost 10
Any IPS? no
When are you planning in testing? sometime this weekend, maybe thursday if I really can't take the wait.
Sophie... It looks like
Hi everyone! Brew thank you for getting us started down here. I am 8 dpo today so officially in the 1WW and wanted to join in! What cycle TTC is this for you? 2What CD are you on? CD 24 How many dpo are you? 8Do you have other children at home? Yes, one son who is 2 :)Any IPS? I was having a ton over the weekend, but now I really don't have any except a ton of creamy CM. Which is unusual, but I am not getting my hopes up at all this cycle. I went to the Dr. yesterday for another issue I was having and they did a ton of blood work. They also ran my blood work for pregnancy just to check so that I could have xrays done and it came back negative :(. So I am probably out for sure this cycle even though I was just 7 dpo it should have shown up in the blood work right? When are you planning in testing? After the results from yesterday I probably will not test until Sunday/Monday which is when AF is due only if it doesn't show.We definitely need to see some BFPs this cycle!!! I am holding out hope for all of us!!!
Sydney - I completely understand about the hesitation about testing.
