So I might have *accidentally* fallen into the crazy chasm of the TWW


Didn't plan on being here again!

Had a mishap on suspected Ov day. Mutual decision that it was best to take MAP as not in good place for a baby at the moment (long story). Took MAP 18 hours later and regretted it instantly. Discussed with OH and both of same mind - a little bit sad. Anyway read up how the MAP works and realise there is a good chance it will fail anyway as pretty sure I was Ov that day and it works by delaying ovulation it can't stop it if it has happened.

So now waiting to see what happens. By my estimate am now 10DPO but have stupidly erratic cycles so this is CD31. I can go as long as 44 days which is really annoying.

Don't know when to test and am really hoping for BFP although really worried at same time the timing would just be awful. But if it is BFN at least it has shown that we both did want to try and I might take myself over to WTT and try and get a bit prepared, healthy and take prenatals etc.

No real symptoms other than a vague suspicion and some cramping but that might all be in my head
I might test at the weekend really don't want to be disappointed though.

ETA: I took the MAP 36 hours later not 18

Isn't it funny how certain things like that can make you realize you actually are ready/want another, etc?

DH and I had a scare before we got married and when we saw the BFN it hit me how much I was really wanting the test to be positive!!

FX for you and please keep us posted.. I'm 2 DPO now and would love to wait it out with you and feel free to PM me anytime

Yeah I know this has definitely been an eye opener. And whatever happens there are conversations to be had now. I am ridiculously excited to be in TWW again though I just hope I am not just fooling myself a bit.

Time stands still though in TWW. I cant believe how quick a fortnight flies by normally and now it feels like a standstill. What is that all about?

Are you planning on doing early tests or waiting?

Definitely conversations that will need to be had! I don't think you're fooling yourself. Anything is possible, especially if you O'd that day and it was too late for the MAP to have any effect.

I have a 3 pack of FRERs and my plan is to not test until 10 DPO +.... but we will see how long I last lol. I'm cautiously optimistic. Had tons of EWCM for 3 days and BD'd everyday I had it, so I'm hoping we caught the egg!

Edited to say: Time definitely stands still while TTC in general!!! I feel like waiting to O took forever, now the TWW is going to drag... really teaches us patience I suppose!

Sounds like you are in with a good chance this cycle then. Fingers crossed for you. What is the earliest you can test with a FRER I forget?

I am not very patient with tests in the house so I am trying not to buy any just yet. I would like to wait another 3 days but we'll see.

You know, I'm not quite sure.. I know I don't want to test until at least 10 DPO but I know some people start testing before that!!

We didn't plan on TTC until later next year. Closer to me finishing school and getting some other things done.

DH happened to be home from work at the right time and now here we are 🤷🏼*♀️ Hopeful but nervous...crossing my fingers for us all!

Ugh I am so impatient!

I went out and bought a FRER pack today for the weekend I told myself.....
I swear I wasn't in the house 10 minutes and caved. Justified by the thinking that I would still have one left.

BFN btw so I think I am probably out. Now have to be good and save the 2nd test for at least next week if AF hasn't shown.
CD32 and I think 11DPO today.

Fingers crossed. What DPO are you?
I guess there is no right time really. There could always be something putting you off TTC and then when you reach the end of that then something else turns up. Sometimes it is good to leap.

Hahah! I see you bought 2 tests and commented on my 40 test purchase sounds like I need to send you some! That's the exact reason I buy in bulk because I just can't help myself and I would rather buy them at a huge discount than $5 - $10 each at the supermarket.
How are you feeling? Any symptoms?
