@Felicia - reading your post almost seemed like I was reading a diary entry. Going mental. I know I haven't been trying long at all, and there is a certain amount of guilt venting when there are so many who have been trying for months and months, or having bad news.
I've taken the day off work today. I've just been so tired. Just exhausted. I'm tired of being so tired and getting quite angry with myself. Constant symptom spotting and non-stop 'could I be? no - there is NO way... calm down... But what if I am?' Just sick of it. I'm been cramping for 5 days. AF not due till Tuesday. There is no way this could be implantation cramping - it's been going on far too long.
But like @Felicia, I'm trying to give myself a stern talking to.
@Dom82 - You know what? You are so damned brave and inspiring. You just are. I just wanted to say that.
Everytime I log on, I just start thinking about you ladies, and hoping I can see some BFP's and/or positive symptoms.
And now I think I'll go have have a good cry. Damned tiredness. Cry, then I think some Doctor and/or Buffy.
Were all entitled to feel this way at some stage it's just what we make of it after
Your only human so be kind to yourself and ttc is very emotional
No different to first month trying to 4 yrs trying
We all feel the same xxx many hugs
I had to share ladies - did an opk 6 hrs later- just then ( bottom pic) ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1398834386.487708.jpg
Before I go to doc and it's clearly negative
I had a big long surge followed by a quick incline which is why I feel so unwell
I didn't want to post in the spirit of this thread but I wanted to share that your body tells you ... I had a long surge so my body didn't cope well - toilet trips and huge miragain - still in bed ATM
So we should definatly listen to our bodies more - hopefully this is just a one of for me
@Felicia hope your migraine goes away soon.
Just went to the loo and saw I had some spotting. It could possibly be implantation bleeding as I ovulate late in my cycle. Or its AF coming early again.. time will tell.

curlybird ..... How exciting !!!! Can't wait for your result
I hope it IB
Got back from my doctor app - she wants me to hold off on ultrasound
She's very alternate like me and only offers medical intervention if I'm Dieing ha ha
She said not uncommon at all to have early ovulation ...
The surge I had was abit longer but didn't seem to concerned
She did tell me though which got my brain ticking that when you get a pos opk that you have ovulated or will that day ... Hmmmmm interesting everything I have read says after the pos ...
She wants me to start charting opk and temp for 3 months so I can confirm my ovulations.... So I guess I'm going to have to leave thread cause the whole point was to relax ... Me and dh are going to talk about it and see what we decided she respects what I want to do but strongly advises me to do it for a couple if cycles!
@Felicia- you can't leave!!! I was temping and using OPK when I got my BFP and I was still relaxed. I had a strong pos on an OPK the same day my temp dropped to show ovulation so I O'd the same day as a pos. OPK was very neg the next morning.
Hope you're feeling better soon @Felicia that's a long surge to have, I have very short ones I think, there have been months where I haven't detected because I'm sure it came and went over night.
fx for you @curlybird - how many dpo now?
have a good sleep tonight @shelbels
and @dom82 you've had such a big thing happen.
Me I'm still sluggin my way though this 2ww. I had a sore throat for 2 days and now nothing, no cm, maybe some barely there cramps, runny nose this morning - gah symptom spotting go away! 7dpo and it's a real struggle this time. I think it's because I feel like things will fail so I'm just getting through the next 2 months before we go to iui.
@Felicia Maybe you were releasing 2 eggs slightly apart?? (is that even possible?) and perhaps that's why it was a longer surge? Good to hear that the doc said it wasn't anything out of the ordinary. It would be sad to see you leave this thread however if you feel its something you need to do, then you should do whats best for you and your ttc journey.
@babyla i am 7 - 8 dpo and am due to test on friday (i hope thats not too early to test but thats when AF is due to make her appearance).
@Allie Pallie how exciting!! How many weeks are you?
@shelbels i hope you feel better soon after having a good nights sleep
@Dom82 you'll have to teach me Hun - temping- charting never in my ttc journey have I done it ... If I do temp/ chart I'll keep it to myself as not to ruin the relax theme if our wonderfully fun group we have :-)
So if I did ovulate first positive that means it was 3/4 days ago .. Guess I'm in the ttw!!! Now I would have a clue when af due :-/
@babyla - I'm still cheering you on Hun - we have to logically get our bfp soon right!!
I'm always reading along watching how you are all getting on. We went through years of ttc and understand how it feels. The useful part of opk-ing is that it will show when you are surging so that you know whether your body is having multiple attempts or not and will help you time an ovulation blood test so that it is roughly 7 days post ovulation if that is what you choose to do. Another positive to opk-ing is that it will show the length of your phases. Have you had a typical day 21 progesterone blood test to check if ovulation has happened? It is a quick blood test and can be bulk-billed if your doctor marks the form as such.
