This is my first TWW, too- on Clomid this month & monitoring for the first time (had been super irregular before, and couldn't figure out when I was O.
Good luck & FX for all of us! (now, please, let the next two weeks fly by?)
Agreed about time being slow! I'm 4dpo and this is worse than waiting on my husband to come home from deployment, definitely slower than the last 2 weeks waiting for him. It especially doesn't help that he's so excited about me testing and tells me every morning how many days lol. I will feel so bad if it's a BFN.
I'm trying to stay positive, but I'm having major lower back cramps that feel like cramps I get with my period and my boobs and nipples are sore. It's getting me down, but I'm hoping that the symptoms are just from coming off BC since I read you don't have symptoms until implantation. UGH.
Still no symptom in sight.
Had some twinges of left sided lower back pain yesterday but that's a stretch.
You know, I think the worst part of getting a BFN on this first TWW would be that I just know that ill be worried about having long term difficulty conceiving.
I timed the BDing well. 5 days before, 2 days before, and on ovulation day!
For the sake of my sanity I hope I'm BFP!
I know many dont get it on the first try... I just don't know what else I would possibly do!
Same here, Alicia. We did it the 3 days leading up to O, on O day itself, AND the day after. We used preseed, sat still for a bit afterwards, I've been taking prenatals and not drinking coffee... if we don't get a BFP I'm afraid we tried everything this time and that means we will have trouble long-term. That scares me.
I've been having so much cramping yesterday and today. It's getting irritating, really. Not AF cramps, but like needle pokes all over. I don't know what to think about that. :/
I'm 5dpo as well. l still have sore nipples, but today have been having some mild cramping (kind of fluttery feeling?) and loads of white creamy cm.
Also feel quite full when not eating a lot. I'm putting down everything no matter how small and trivial because then I can look back in future and compare.
I'm just worried that the cramps are af coming early and I'm going to have a really short luteal phase - anything to worry about since I've not had af in about 9 years!
I'm at 5dpo and I've been wide awake since 2:15. I had to pee and couldn't go back to sleep. My lower back is still off and on crampy, and my nipples hurt so bad. Lots of creamy CM, too. Other than that nothing exciting going on, just wishing for next Saturday to be here so I can test.
I know, come on implantation!! Pretty sure my boobs are a bit more veiny? I keep wanting to take pics so that I can compare with previous days but keep thinking what would happen if I went to show someone at work a photo and forgot I had various boob shots on there
I've also cried at pretty much everything on tv tonight, including Coronation Street
