Thanks LilNightmare and Disney.
The first month I was trying I noticed a whole lot of symptoms and then af arrived so I was pretty disappointed. No symptoms the last two months, did a hpt around the day af was due then got af that day! This month I wanted to do it a little differently so thats why I bought some (heaps!) ICs and have been testing everyday.
I keep thinking that maybe the symptoms I have are either normal or due to something else. Even though I know the cramping and the cm is unusual. fx it is because a bub is in the process of implanting...I'm probably just setting myself up for disappointed . DH is extra keen this month...think he's starting to realise it might actually take a while.
If I'm not utd this month I'll probably take it a bit easy next month - I've been keeping good records this month so that will be helpful for future months if I have any unusual symptoms.
fx I won't need it! Should know by early next week though so not long left to wait.
Good luck everyone!
To answer you question Disney: I will tell you by month:
Month 1: Twice (probably day before&after o)
Month 2: 10 (including the three days after probable o)
Month 3: 5
Month 4 (this one): about 11 (sometimes twice in one day!), about 7 times before a +ve opk, then 4 after, possibly last time was a day or half day before o...
