i've got the symptom spots really bad this time lol.
So, here's my account of what my body is doing at 8dpo, probably gearing for AF, because, well, why would I actually get pregnant when I want, right? lol
so 8dpo: sore boobs, been cramping on and off for a few days, really tired despite getting good sleep, and today I noticed a bit of snot-like cm when I wiped... fx it's what I want it to be....
I didn't keep testing because everywhere I've read it says once the peak happens it stays at peak automatically by default? I mean I did do two lots of monitors this cycle as it was. One with my advanced which picked up peak wayyy too early so I switched to the normal monitors with the smiley faces and I peaked again around cd20 I think it was. Maybe I didn't O this cycle. I had all the signs though. How long after O are you meant to get Af? I did another frer today and it was a bfn. My b00bs are still excruciating. Cd35 today I hope it's not going to be another extra long cycle. Time to start taking Progestalift!!! Need to get my cycles in order. Hopefully the vitex in it will assist. I feel like I'm stabbing in the dark with dtd as I don't know when I o now even with the flipping monitors. I can't be bothered to temp
Hi ladies looks like I'm onto this thread still waiting for af to arrive so will let you know testing date once she shows. Also think I will start vitex this month!
I just worked out my testing day will be valentines day. Hope that's a good omen :-)
I'm due to test Monday at 14dpo but think I'm going to do a sneaky test on Friday as it's DPs birthday and a BFP would be such a great birthday surprise. Fingers crossed but I'm not feeling that positive I'm at 8dpo with no symptoms
I ran out of patience and did a test this morning. BFN.
I think I went a little crazy symptom spotting so I'm just going to chill now. I will only test again if af is late.
@clucky_duck you should have AF 14 days after O day. I'd say you didn't ovulate when you thought you did. Maybe go to your GP and have a HCG blood test done to rule pregnancy out... How long are your cycles generally again?
Pregnant for the first-time?
