Testing around 12th August.


So I'm on my 3rd TWW! I feel this cycle has went better as I actually managed to pinpoint when I ovulated. It was a couple of days earlier than I expected so I'm glad I tested this cycle. Now I'm on my TWW! And that also means I'm going to be a crazy symptom spotter!!! 😂
Anyone else waiting to test around the same time?

I'm planning on testing around the 12th! I haven't confirmed ovulation yet but I got a dark OPK yesterday so pretty sure it should happen today.

It looks like your DS is about the same age as ours! We just started TTCing for #2. Is your son eager for a sibling? Mine keeps talking about babies and wanting to have one. I told him yesterday he has to be patient. "It takes a long time to make a baby. Mummy and Daddy are working on it."

Aw he's desperate to have a baby brother or sister. His friend has just had a new little brother and he thinks it's amazing. I'm so looking forward to the day I can tell him mummy is having a baby. Although he'd definitely rather have a brother 😂 what about your LO?

Well we can symptom spot together. I'm terrible for it! I try to convince myself I won't do it every cycle and I always do 😂

My SIL just had a second kid (the first is right around DS's age) and he's gotten very interested in babies since then. I think he'd be pretty happy with either a brother or a sister. We're hoping for a girl so we have one of each, but as long as it's a happy and healthy kiddo, we're not too worried.

It's hard not to give in to the temptation to look for signs! I went back over my data from when I was trying before (I've been pregnant twice so I could compare those TWWs to the cycles when I wasn't for patterns, heh), and figured out that the only two symptoms that I only got when I was actually pregnant were cramping and breast tenderness. Also I was way more exhausted the second time than I've ever been otherwise. So if I get any of those signs, it'll be really hard to wait to test.

I'll be due AF around 12th/13th August so will be testing around then too! Do you have any symptoms yet? I've had some light cramping but nothing severe. Coming down with a cold too but otherwise nothing else! I hate the TWW!

Nothing as of yet. My nipples were really sensitive yesterday which is very unusual for me. Never had that before, except when I was pregnant before. But I'm thinking it's too soon for that to mean anything. But you never know!!
Fingers crossed for all of us!!

Tonight I've had a little spotting. I'm worried now though because maybe my cycle has changed and it's only going to be a 4 week cycle rather than a 5 and this is AF on its way. But then I was pretty sure I got a positive OPK on Saturday?? Ugh, really hoping it's not AF!!!

Fingers crossed for you, Shortstuff! It is possible it could be very early implantation bleeding, or else a little bleed from ovulation that took its time making its way out.

Now I'm very confused!! I've had no spotting at all today. Might be too early to get my hopes up but maybe it wasn't AF on its way after all???
