Expectant mum congrats on your bfp
AFM quick update - had my first blood test at the fs today for my tracking cycle. Called this afternoon and have to go back Monday morning for the next one. Have my HSG friday afternoon so fingers crossed that goes well.
Good luck to everyone this cycle Baby dust to you all
Teega - it is a little odd but maybe your urine was super weak at the time? I also do at least 2 opks per day and tend to always see it get darker. It would be highly unlikely that you missed your surge - unless you didnt test yesterday and today was the tail end. I would do another opk tonight and see what that tells you
Channy - i totally understand the "its never going to happen" feeling. I do remember I felt the same 2.5 yrs ago and couldnt imagine it ever happening. Yet it did and I now have a gorgeous DS . I am feeling exactly the same this time - I cant imagine getting a proper positive test let alone having another baby...
Channy - im feeling exactly the same. Can't believe it's taken so long
Ok ladies I need some advice (particularly J37 if ur floating around?). I estimated that I ovulated about 2 weeks ago so I would be 13 or 14dpo now. Had bloods, they confirmed I had and fs said last tues to expect af in 7-10 days. Yesterday I had a tiny amount of fresh blood but only old blood since... But OMG I'm so uncomfortable and in so much pain. My uterus feels huge, heavy and almost like its swollen (Like I have a massive baby in there and I'm about to give birth!) I'm really bloated and have cramping just like I would if I had AF really heavy, yet theres no fresh blood...
Ques - because when AF arrives this would be the 1st AF since the D&C 7 weeks ago - do I ring the FS cos im so uncomfortable yet not bleeding, or wait a couple more days to see if AF starts because I'm still in the 7-10 day window?? I don't know if I should be expecting a more painful/heavy/strange AF this time or if something isn't right.... Thoughts? What would u do?

Waiting - my first AF after d&c started with a day or 2 of spotting before it went to red AF (I had never had spotting prior to that so that was a noticeable difference). It was much heavier and longer than usual with cramps to boot. The following 3-4 AF got lighter and shorter each time until they returned to normal. I hope that's all that's happening with you xxx
Last night it was starting to get darker and then this morning was the darkest it had been and then almost nothing tonight...
Not sure what any of it means. I guess we'll keep DTD every second day and see what happens.
