I'm not entirely sure exactly when I ovulated, so I'm going by the latest dates in my regular as clockwork cycle
1-4 dpo - nothing notable.
5 dpo- awful headache. Increased creamy cm. insomnia. Mild cramps. Stuffy nose.
6 dpo - as above.
7 dpo- mild headache. Sore breasts. Leaking a tiny amount of colostrum. (Wtf?!) mild cramping. Stuffy nose. Crying. A lot. like full on sobbing during a news report video on Aleppo. Slept ok, but waking super early. Vivid dreams.
8 dpo - moderate headache. A lot of cramping/tightening pains. Backache. Sore, heavy bbs. Foul metallic taste. Cervix too high to check properly. Pretty resigned to being out. Oh and clearly grumpy and irritable.
9dpo - awake at 5am again. Waking in the night to pee also (known to happen occasionally though) cervix too high to feel. Stuffy nose. Vivid dreams. BFN on frer.
10dpo - bbs still aching and heavy. Stuffy nose. Slept better but vivid dreams. Cx still too high to feel. Bfn with fmu. Almost certain that I must be convincing myself of these symptoms now, my other pregnancies have tested positive at 10dpo.
Spotting a little this afternoon, af not due until thurs but I'm pretty certain she'll be here in full by this evening. Sigh.
hi ladies so I thought I would update you on what has happened to me as I know so many ladies check or try to check for cm and cp as well as other symptoms
my cycle is usually 30 days. The 1st day of my last af was 11/02/2017 I usually have it for 5 days quite heavy.
by my calculations and charts ( I do not temp or use ov tests ) I should have o'd on the 27/02/2017.
1dpo - cramping bloating and lots of burping and trumping - cp low open soft - cm creamy lotion like I never seemed to have the egg white this month at all
2dpo - cramping bloating burping trumping and very hungry - low firm closed - cm as above
3dpo - all the above again - cp high firm closed - cm lotion like a little less than previous days
4dpo - all th above pls extremely tired - cp high firm closed - cm lotion watery a lot less but feel like I'm really damp down there
5dpo - all the above symptoms - cp was barley reachable but what I could feel was firm and very wet
6dpo - all above symptoms woke up with extremely bad tummy ache where I had tramped wind horrible had the runs - cp cant reach but it feels swollen up there in general still creamy lotion cm
7dpo - all the above symptoms but boobs are now feeling fuller and my nipples are achy - cant check cp - cm lotion like and a lot less even though I feel super wet down there
8dpo - again same as above plus feeling a tad nauseous
9dpo - all the same as above and decided to test and I got my BFP ...
9dpo is where I am at now and I have done 2 cheap hpt's and 1 digi clearblue which came up pregnant 1 - 2 weeks.
I have listed all of this because I know some ladies think your cp has to be high soft closed and wet but mine has been high firm open and closed and wet so it just shows that every one is different and just cause you cp is not what it says on the internet it should be does not mean you are not pregnant.
sorry I am super sleepy and typing barely keeping my eyes open just wanted to post this before bed time. baby dust to every one.. xx
"Close enough to count, I thought" + OPK on CD10, checked because of pain and cm, puts AF due CD25
Possible O on CD16-19? based on pain and cm, puts AF due CD30+
BD on CD 4, CD10, CD12-15, CD19 on CD24
CD1-12: Evening Primrose Oil
CD1-?: 6g myo-inositol
CD11-16: ate 2 wedges of pineapple with core each day (whoops)
CD16: positive affirmations and breathing exercises each time I get the urge to poas (hah)
Went gluten, dairy, and caffeine free as of CD1
CD10, possible O-day: extra painful, both sides painful instead of just one. A single flash of hot pressure on my back
CD11-13: nothing of note, a few moments of the hot pressure on back feeling
Evening of CD13: ovary pains return, not quite the same as ovulation pain
CD14: ovary pain
CD15: ovary pain and headache
CD16: ovary pain almost completely gone, replaced by mild uterine cramps and some round ligament pain in my groin. Breasts feel tingly with sore nipples. Sneezing and coughing up mucus (but the weather just changed, spring is coming) also feel like I'm making too much drool and had an unusual amount of sleep crusties around my eyes. cp/t is high and squishy, cm was typical white dry/sticky at 7AM but at 11AM I unexpectedly soaked my panties so I checked again. Switched to much more "lotion" like!!! Tons of drool and a metallic taste at around 1:30PM
CD17, possible O day no OPK: Hot flash this morning. CM is almost egg white?? More of the drooling and metallic taste. Breasts feeling heavy and have colostrum again.. went to bed at the same time as my toddler. During afternoon prayer I had a sharp hot pain in my uterus.
CD18: Gobs and gobs of ewcm this morning. Hot pressure in my back overnight. A tiny bit crampy, maybe best described as "sore". Bouts of drooling and metallic taste continue, but now include nausea.
CD19: woke up crampy. Felt like AF a bit. Egg white cm with sticky bits. Hot flash this morning. Boobs look huge. Also, upset bowels? cramps in the evening too, and some minor ovary pain
CD20: Boobs still big and still burn, during last night having them touched didn't feel sexual, like during bfing. Couldn't check cm in am because of the bd, cp low and squishy. Cm was egg white when checked at noon, lotion pm. Oh and I have a cold (sore throat, runny nose)
CD21: Cervix dropped lower, cm lotion in am but creamy/sticky in pm. Boobs deflating and becoming more normal. Minor ovary pain, minor cramps. I feel out. cold is gone, back to just a sore throat.
CD22: woke up nauseous!!! I thought it would fade but it hasn't. cervix low, cm is still gooier & more abundant than last month. Boobs burned before bed and nipples are sensitive this morning. Not sure at all... starting in afternoon, bad stabbing pains in hip/groin. Aches in uterus and ovaries but nothing like af cramps. And a terrible lower backache.
CD23: Woke up in a puddle of sweat, thirsty and needing to pee with that sharp groin pain on my left now instead of right. Cm is drying up but still wetter than last cycle. Nipples tender/sore but breasts their normal pancakey post bf selves. Still drooling, still nauseous, alternating chills and hot flashes, and other than CD18 I've had no PMS irritability! Brushing my teeth after lunch and my gums bled!!!!
CD24: woke up and my mouth tasted like raw garlic, so did plain water. still got that wicked backache, some cramps. Breasts getting bigger again. Tired.... so tired..... good night! I mean, good morning? on wondfo. I swear my cervix seems smaller?
CD25: no cm is thoroughly dried up, cp is high/small and sore.
CD26: still no af, wondering if I actually O'd CD17, 18....? cm dry in am wet in pm, cp high, still having bouts of nausea but not drool/metallic taste. Fatigued. Trying not to symptom spot to be honest because it makes me cry when I remember the bfn. Wait, frequent crying, that's a symptom
CD27. Clue told me I'm late for af this morning but I'm trying to hold out and expect her Friday or Saturday. Boobs are bigger still and have ready colostrum again (overeager titties! ) I've been terribly thirsty (not odd for me) and been waking up to hunger pains for a few days (which is unusual). Praying

8DPO - Feeling very tired after a great sleep last night 9:30PM - 7:30PM a good 10 hours and my eyes are burning at work i feel as though i could ust climb into bed and have a nap. This is unusual for me so if it turns out to be my month this will be the thing that convinced me i had a chance.
I may start to test from 9dpo, i have avoided testing so far as i just make myself go crazy, i have tried to keep occupied this month and not go OTT with TTC more of a relaxed approach.
8DPO internet Cheapie BFN
9DPO - mouth is watery started yesterday still same today. Woke up feeling tired (heavy eyes) took a clear blue + blue dye test had a line appear instantly which disappeared. Took another FRER this time and had what I believe is now an indent.
