    Sorry to hear you're out this month Nat . I hope you have success in July before your check-up! That would be exciting.

    I bought some hpt tests last month and put them in the cupboard without really looking at them. Looked at them the other day and realised they were the Early Response ones. So, stupidly, I did one today....and it was negative. Mind you, I'm only at about 9-10dpo so I guess it was a bit early.

    I have had a tight funny feeling tummy last couple of days, so of course my brain has gone into total symptom overdrive. I can't stop wondering about it and it's doing my head in today. Trying not to get my hopes up.

    Sorry to hear you're out for this month, NAT256. Any more news ErinR?

    O day came a few days earlier than expected this month - I suspect the result of a combination of Evening Primrose Oil, thyroxine and getting the last of the pill out of my system. Fortunately, the numerous sticks I'm peeing on these days gave us a bit of warning and we were able to get on the job. On the one hand, it's nice that this cycle is a normal length (and gives me hope that we'll turn out to be a nice textbook case of a normally fertile couple). But on the other hand, it's likely to royally screw up our timing next month - doh!

    We haven't DTD so frequently for a LONG time - while it's nice, the sleep-loving part of me is almost glad that we're now into the TWW! Baby-making is tiring!

    Nothing new here. Still having some symptoms that are making me over-analyse. Good chance I have had these every month and never even noticed.

    Anyway, I am tempted to do another test, so if I do i will give you all an update. AF not actually due until Friday/Saturday so probably a bit early.

    Gentoo, I laughed at your comment about baby-making being tiring. We gave SMEP a go and it was a killer...haha.

    Good luck ErinR and Gentoo. I'm keeping posted on how you're going. Mrs ErinR, I've been surprised how many symptoms are just my normal cycle each month. Fertility Friend helps me when I go and check and see that last month the same thing happened! I hope yours is the real deal though. It has to be some day!! Exciting to read that you're getting some tummy tightness, that sounds promising.

    My close colleague had her baby yesterday so it was the talk of work today. I didn't feel sad, which is good, just looking forward to when it's us!

    How's everyone else going? Anyone else in the wait??

    Well, I succumbed to doing another test and it was still negative so not looking good. So, I'm busy thinking about what I'll do differently next month as I find that helps me to not feel too disappointed. At least I will have a plan forward.

    I have created a login to fertility friend as everyone here seems to use it. Up until now I have used an iPad app Womanlog pro that I have really liked so I might evaluate the 2 against each other....and of course pick the brains of you slightly more experienced ladies when it comes to temping etc.

    I have tried to track symptoms this month so I can compare next month.

    Not sure about the tight tummy. It was around for most of the weekend but seems to have settled now. Still feels slightly tender but again that could just be AF coming!

    Good luck to anyone else in the tww

    Keeping the fingers crossed for you MrsErinR.

    I have a similar feeling with tight tummy/cramps which has been on and off for last few days. Im at end of DPO9 and I over-analyse ever symptoms from about ovulation onwards.
    Its almost like I forget what happens every month but I have FF to remind me that this pattern tends to re-occur most months

    nat256 still talking to the ovary trying to coax it out. Im fairly sure I had ovulation pain from the other side this month so hoping for the best.

    Well I'm now out for this month. Had chronic stomach pain on & off for last 4 days but unusually for me haven't required any painkillers today.
    Starting to believe my FS theory re: endo but guess I won't know until laparoscopy scheduled. Have given up tea & alcohol this week to try something different so give me strength

    Sorry to hear you're out Vivre
    Hope the laparoscopy gives you some answers. In the meantime I'm impressed by your commitment.....I haven't been able to bring myself to give up wine yet!

    Oh, I forgot to ask...for those of you who take temperatures, when do you do it and how do you wake up at right time?? I have so much trouble getting a set time. If I set an alarm for a time, say 6am, I will always wake up at 3am, 4am etc leading up to it. I've tried just taking it at the times I first wake up, even if it's early but it makes my temperatures fluctuate too much. I don't know what to do. Whenever I take temps I end up with a broken sleep for the month.

    I have taken temps for last 6 mths & I'm just about over it. I wake up 6ish during the week so add in weekends where I sometimes can go back to sleep makes for tired & emotional times. I discovered FF has a temp corrector under data menu I think, so have started giving that a go rather than being so strict.

    Nat, I'm trying to give up wine, emphasis on the try ! Ha ha
