Just thought this would be a handy place to bring our positive energy together and somewhere to coach each other NOT to test before AF is meant to be here - in the hope that it will help us avoid disappointment by testing too early!
I know, I know...it feels impossible, and I'm sure we will all want to do a sneaky HPT asap at 10dpo or even earlier. But let's try...and hopefully we'll all be recording our BFP's in no time at all!
For starters, let's do a quick tally of our individual dpo and date AF is due to try and get things going. We can do this girls! No testing until the witch is meant to be here - hopefully with our powers combined we can keep her away!!! xx
I'll go first - I *think* I'm 1dpo, and AF is due on April 6th. I will be testing (hopefully) April 7th!
Editing this - I'm going to try and hold out to test on Sat April 9th, because that's only 3 days after AF is due, and I have a day at home with DH that day so we can do it together (hopefully). Unless the evil witch shows up in the meantime, of course...
i very much hope that you ovulated yesterday and we didnt bd on the day of or the day before OV either and i am optimisti (as always) so dont give up, you couldnt receive any more of my positive vibes over the www!!
5dpo today, af should be here by 3rd of april! try not to test until april 1st as it would be the greatest day if i find out i am pregnant and OH would not believe it as its aprils fools day! haha...
signs and symptoms - creamy cm, high soft closed cervix and tired.
beetle we can do it! i believe in you for not testing too early! fingers are crossed for all of us!
cant tell you how much i appreciate talking to you all!
welcome noni btw! any symptoms?
Hi noni and farmers!
Yep - I say we hold out until the day AF is due plus one...in case she's being sneaky and just coming along late. That way, we'll save money (on all the POAS's!) and (hopefully) any sad feelings brought about by getting a BFN after testing too early.
So... in terms of testing dates:
Noni 1st April
Farmers 2nd April
Beetle 2nd April
Bumble 4th April (though you are blatantly going to test on April 1st aren't you...naughty girl! )
Me (Mort) April 9th - as my cycles are so damn irregular anyway, I've got to wait to give it my best shot!
Hi all, and welcome Noni and Farmerswifey! You have joined a fab thread as we are the most supportive girls out there! Here there is no such thing as TMI!
Noni at 8DPO you are the furthest along! Any symptoms yet?
Farmerswifey your dates are the same as mine! do share your symptoms! (mine at 6DPO are, night sweats at 3dpo, ov type cramps at 5dpo and now twinges just to the right and below my belly button today but comes and goes and just when I think I'm imagining it, I get another one!
Bumbs and Mort, I'm so hopeful for you both, and I really wouldn't worry about timing of BD as I think you both did enough!!!
Ok deal! So I promise not to test until 2nd April. That is going to be very hard!!!!!!
Beetle - I have had some symptoms and Im very nervous about whether this is good or just in my imagination.
Im glad our dates are the same so we can compare!
Ive had some weird ones tho - at 3days PO I had very soft bowel movements and this continued until now (6 days PO) sorry to be gross but thats the way it is!
Also - at around 4 days PO I had low back pain. Now this could be period symptoms also for me.
We can test on the same day and hopefully both get our BFPs!!!
Wouldnt it be great is everyone in Team no test got a BFP when we can test!! lol!
I'm so with you there on the imagining thing! Well done for saying you will hold off until 2nd April! Its going to be tough but if we support each other we can do it. As you know there is nothing worse than the disappointment of a BFN! (not to mention the cost of constantly testing early!).
Sorry to hear you've had a rough time of it with your ectopic and MC. I had an early MC in December and its so tough but you do get through and you have to think positive in that you know you can get PG!
I'm hopeful for all of us this month!
Mort my birthday is on 8th so you'll be testing the day after! I'll either be pregnant or will console myself with a few red wines!
