3 DPO anyone?! **12 BFPs so far & 2 lil angels


I'm 3 DPO today and promised myself that I wasn't going to read blogs or go on the internet for symptons....YEAH RIGHT! I couldn't keep that promise, obviously! HAHA! Anyone else at 3 DPO and want a buddy? The only "sympton" I have at this point is slight cramping and frequent urination. Anyone else want to share their symptons...TWW is just horrible, it drives me crazy! LOL

Hi Tynmeg,
I am right there with ya! 3 days DPO and my brain is going crazy! I don't think I have any symptoms, other than mental obsession (lol!), but I am extremely hungry. However, I go through phases of being extremely hungry a lot. I was nauseated yesterday, but I was in the back of a passenger van and sometimes that makes me nauseated in general. So, in short, nothing totally out of the ordinary. I do pee a lot too, but I also drink a lot of water. I hate all these vague symptoms, especially because it's really too early to know anything

Last night I felt my CP and it seemed soft and low, but then again, I am SOOO new to that part of the process, so it could mean nothing at all.

We are TTC #1, I am 36, and this is month 3 of trying. I haven't had any fertility treatments or anything, as I am still new to trying so we'll see what happens if no BFP after a few months.

We BD -2 and -1 day from "O", as we were at a family function the day/night of "O" - bummer!! It stinks to be in that awkward place in the 2ww that we can't do ANYTHING!! Too early to test, too early to know if AF is going to rear her head!!!

I am right there with ya! Hang in there, we can do this!!!!!

Oh Yes, the mental obsession...it feels more like insanity. lol Everything you think you feel, you question if it's a sympton, drives me mad! Anyway, it's nice to know someone is along for this ride with me.
According to what I know, you timed your BDing perfectly. Sperm lives for 3-5 days and you want them there waiting for when you ovulate...your window is very small after you ovulate. I really hope that this is our month and we both get BFPs!
I'm 35 and married to a woman, hence the need for fertility treatments. I take Clomid to make sure I ovulate from days 3-7. I hear ya with the TWW and not being able to do anything...AF comes day 1 and I call and make appointments for the IUI, Day 3-7 I take Clomid, starting on Day 12 I start using OPKs, then when it's positive, I drive 5 hours to the clinic, the next day is the IUI, then...................................you wait, do nothing but wait!

It's nice to have a buddy, We can do this! Do you chart your BBT?

Awesome, another buddy. Well know that you have 2 other people that understands your insanity. We can try to keep each other half sane. lol

Sorry about your mc, I had one the end of Oct 2012 and it's a hard thing to go through, I hope you get a BFP...FX for all of us.

Tynmeg - wow, 5 hr drive!!?? Yikes!! That takes the commitment to TTC to the next level!! Hoping extra hard for your BFP this time Which OPKs do you use? I don't have good luck with them (cheapies from Amazon), so I have been tracking CM, and also try to BD a lot around that time (this month a bit less). My friend who got her BFP in Feb used the same brand as I am and never had luck, so maybe it's time for a new brand. I also forgot to bring them on the day I had EWCM and I was 'slated' to O based on cycle and CM, as that was the day I was out of town on family trip for 36 hrs or so.

I don't do BBT yet, but maybe if no BFP this month - I am open to it. Do you do BBT?

lfrans- nice job on timing the BD, so good luck for BFP.

My boobs are itchy a bit today, and my nipples look larger than usual (TMI- sorry!), but then again, I don't know if this is typical and I'm just hyper vigilant about notice such things now that I'm TTC. Stay tuned....I'll check in again if anything earth shattering happens (hahaha, probably not).

I use the Clearblue easy OPK's. For me, it's very clear when it's time, my line shows up before the test line and is darker than the test line. They are a bit pricy, I get 7 for around 50 dollars. I think you're still in the running for your timing though, my friend who was seen by a fertility specialist was told to BD on days 11, 13, 15, 17...it worked twice for her.
I started charting in March, I like it only because it shows me exactly when and if I ovulate...the only tricky thing is that you should do it at the same time every day and not get up for a pee or anything for like 2-3 hours before you take it. Near the time that AF is due, if your temp starts dropping then you also know you aren't preggo.
My nipples are always sensitive after I O, but ya never know, itchy boobs could be a good thing.
I'm also trying acupuncture this round. I started it in April so got 2 months in before we tried again. I read that it can be helpful so thought I'd give it a try, turns out, I really like it, it's quite relaxing.

Hi girls!

I'm 3DPO too! Planning to test on the 24th, fingers crossed for our BFP!

We BD on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. I ovulated on Saturday.

I've been using the CBFM. Xx

Awesome, Welcome to our insanity of the TWW, it's so great to have others that are on the same day. I will probably start testing early on June 19, although I shouldn't test until June 24 either. I try to be strong and wait but it always gets the best of me. lol

Good Luck and FX for you too!

welcome Timtilly.

I too am glad I'm not in this alone. These are the longest days. I doubt I can wait until the 22nd to test, but we shall see...... I will likely cave by next Monday, lol!
