@mrsthomo I am a recovering POAS addict and am too petrified of a relapse, and have been adamant about not testing before the result. I don't have any, so that helps. I dont believe I will need to sneaky test, as I will know either way by the time of BT, which will put me at 14dp3dt. Im a religious 25day cycle, so by BT I should know. I never make it past 12dpo. Bloody will this time 😉 I pray!
@Leachpeach Im right next to you on the bloat and b( . )( . )b front. Im on crinone. Its having a good muck up with my mind & body.
@Tanej78 hope you are well recovered now. Let us know any updates..
Best wishes to the rest of the roll call in your next step.
Should there be a new thread starting for Dec/Jan? I don't know how this site is run, is there a moderator?
Have a god weekend all. I plan on deleting my BH app and banning myself for the weekend for a break. Will reload Monday. See you next week xx
@MrsSMS brown blood is old blood, so long as it's not red and fresh, it should be ok. I got two small lots of brown blood in early pregnancy ( I think at 7 weeks and 9weeks), I freaked out at the time but it ended up being nothing. There's a lot of stretching going around that can cause bleeding and pessaries can cause irritation too.
I know what you mean about the wipe test. I was the same and was only thinking about that last week. I was ok during my 2ww as I was on Crinone, which held af off but there were so many times during really early pregnancy that I'd run to the toilet and hold my breath.
@Leachpeach glad to hear you've been keeping busy. My 2ww is 2 weeks from ovulation day (or EPU for a fresh cycle) until BT so I only really have a 9 day wait after my transfers and I usually go crazy. I think I'd go over the edge waiting any longer. My BT should be Wednesday 16th dec. since that's a work day for me, I know I'll test the day before so I have a day to recoup at home if it's bad news. Hopefully then I'll know what to expect on the phone call at work. It will be so different this time as I know exactly what day my af is due with all the ovulation monitoring I've had but last time around I couldn't rely on that due to Crinone. There will be none of that this time. I think I'd be too scared to go to the toilet on the 16th if I hadn't tested before, lol.
@Billie2 have a good weekend. These threads are just created by members, I created this one. I have seen a jan/feb 2016 one already started. I won't join another unless it's a bfn and I'm cycling again. Even though oct/nov has finished, I'm happy to finish my cycle here instead of keeping up with a new thread at the same time

Thanks @Annerley I am hoping that it is just irritated from the crinone and pessaries. I have to try an stay positive. I haven't had anymore today so that is a bonus and my tummy while I have had cramps nothing is bloated like AF is coming so fingers crossed 🙏
@Billie2 I don't think there's a need to start a new one, most of us have cycled through Nov... But yea anyone can start a thread!
Feeling ok, still tender heading out tonight... So will see how I go! Feeling every bump in the car lol
RE bleeding in the first trimester, i bled alot with my son, i had pink/brown/bright red and even clots, i had convinced myself the pregnancy was over several times but it was fine! I actually have a sub cronic hemotoma now but haven't had any bleeding and its shrunk quite a bit, one of my due date buddies bled consistently for the first 8 weeks of her pregnancy, bleeding no matter what colour can be absolutely normal, and i even had cramping and bleeding, i cramp alot so add a little blood to it and your bound to be a crazy woman, but my healthy one year old is poking me in the fave as i write this
@MrsSMS - I had a small amount of brown discharge when I wiped a couple of days on and off in my 2ww and I also had one day of pink discharge that covered a panty liner! I also had brown discharge for a couple of days post positive test, I was very stressed! But turns out its was all fine as I'm currently 8 weeks pregnant. I really hope it's a good sign for you xx
Scientist update, 8 still growing! Staying positive, just everything is eerily similar to last time so makes me a bit paranoid...
Transfer booked for 11am Monday morning.
