Second guessing, need advice...


Hi,

Sorry if any of this is TMI.

As far as I know my info is as follows:
Avg. cycle length- 26 days
Avg. Period length- 5-6 days
LMP- 4/10-4/14
Possible O- 4/19-4/21 ( took opk and results were questionable, but I took some on 4/20 and 4/21 and those were definitely negative )
Insemination- 4/18-4/20
Temps high (98.00-98.01) w/ a slight dip (97.76) still above cover at 11 dpo
CM- creamy
HCG test at 9 and 10 dpo both negative


I am 11 dpo and my symptoms include: tender breasts ( I sometimes get sore breasts before AF, but that feels like when I was a kid and my breasts were first growing this time feels different ). I feel queasy, not nauseous. I have been hungry more, normally I don't really have an appetite. I feel tired all the time, I nap all day and then I can still go to bed early at night, and I have a decreased sex drive, normally it is very high. I have been emotional today, even crying.
I'm not sure what is going on and it's driving me crazy. I would like advice... do you think I could be pregnant?

You definitely have a chance. Your info is fine and definitely not tmi.
The best shot at conception is the 1-3 day period before ovulation usually and it sound like you likely hit it.
Your symptoms sound decent if they are unusual for you. Any positive before 14dpo is early so you definitely aren't out.
Good luck and keep testing.

Thank you soo much for replying. It is hard doing the TWW alone. That's why I joined this forum. I was prepared to go through a pregnancy and birth alone, but I guess I didn't account for dealing with things if it doesn't happen or the TWW. Not having anyone to talk to when you think you might be pregnant, hope you are pregnant and then find out you aren't is very hard. I did it for a little while, but I can't do it anymore.

On a side note I see in your signature you are on xbox, do you play? I have a 360 and an xbox one. I am like you I am dirufangirl on pretty much everything steam, PSN, and xbox. Sorry if I seem kind of nosy, that isn't my intention. I'm just always excited to meet other gamers.

I am happy to keep you company in the ttc journey. I've been at it a long time but am happy to cheer others on. I know a ton about ttc and such and always help when I can.

I don't really play multiplayer either. I'm not that great at games LOL you work for xbox, that is awesome. and I will definitely friend you if you really don't mind. I appreciate the company. I know you have probably talked about this more than you care to, but how long have you been TTC? I'm sorry to ask, but i'm new.

No it's no problem. I don't mind talking about it. I've been trying to conceive since June of 2015 with one 3.5 month limbo and one 3 month break so about one and half years all together.
My guy has low sex drive so we don't have sex often. I have started doing insemination since December.
I don't mind having a new friend on xbox at all. Currently all I have is my guy and a few I met in Monopoly lol

What games do you play?

I work from home for Xbox and do love it lol

I play all kinds of games, but right now I'm playing Dragons Dogma, and Dragon Age Inquisition. I have Played all the Dragon Age games multiple times and this is like my third playthrough for Inquisition. It is also my first on xbox, I played on the PS4 before when I was still married.

Do you use your guy's sperm for insemination? I know that might be a weird question, but I am curious. How do you figure out the timing?

Yes When we can't have sex I use his sperm for insemination. I do the insemination the same time I would if having sex as it is basically the same odds and everything. Usually I try and start at around cd 11 or 12 and try to do it every other day or so until I confirm ovulation with bbt. My cycles have been a bit quirky lately but hoping they go back to my normal cd 16- 19 ovulation. We shall see.

The best way to judge is it's best to try and do the insemination 10-16 days before you expect AF. If you check your cervical position it can help as well and monitoring cm can also help a bunch. Opks can help many as well as ferning.
I do the opks, bbt and monitor my cm and most of eh time cervical position. I also usually get ovulation pain the day of ovulation.

I am happy to explain any of that for you if you need more info.

My issue with timing is that the donor travels in from out of state, and can only stay a few days at most, so I have to be really spot on with my timing. And you can only confirm ovulation after it happens, right? Another thing they want to know dates months in advance so they can plan things, but it is very difficult for me to time things correctly that way. I don't have a set cycle. It's anywhere from 25-28 days, so I have a general idea when I will get AF but I don't know for sure until it happens. And a cycle doesn't start until the first day of your period, right? Also about checking your cervix, do you use your fingers? I have tried to check my cervix, but I cant find/reach it. Even doctors have a hard time and they know what they are looking for. I've thought about buying a speculum but I feel a bit weird. Do you know the accuracy difference between using saliva or CM to check for ferning?

Saliva is what I have heard works best for ferning.

If your cycle is 25-28 days then you most likely ovulate cd 11-16. If you have to guess I would inseminate on cd 12 or 13

Yes your cycle starts when AF starts.

If opks work for you then you may get a gradual darkening leading up to ovulation. Or with ferning you'll starting seeing partials a day or two before ovulation.

Finding the cervix, yeah I can usually find mine with my fingers but not always. I trust my cm more than my cervical position.
Um using a speculum you'd be able to see it when high and open. It's not hard to do, just takes the device a flashlight and a mirror, but it's up to you how comfy you feel doing it.

How many cycles have you tracked. How long is your typical LP?
